Men and women doctor their troubles so often without benefit that they get
dS'jjouraged and skeptical. In most such cases serious mistakes aie made in doctor
ing and not knowing what our trouble is or ivhat makes us sick. The unmistak
able evidences of kidney trouble are pain or dull ache In the back, too frequent de
sire to pass "wat'r, scanty supply, fcaldlng irritation. As kidney disease advances
the face looks sallow or pale, eyes puffy, the feet swell and sometimes the heart
acts badly. Should, further evidence be needHl. to find out the cause of sickness,
then set urine aside for twenty-four hours: a sediment or settling is also convincing
proof that our kidneys and bladder need doctoring. A fact often overlooked, cr
not always underbtood, is that -women ourfcr as much from kidney and bladder
trouble as men do.

"A MAN'S LIFE" DEFINED
Kent Criticises Contentment
Ho Inveighs Agninst tho TJn charita
bleness of Certain Business
Methods and Principles.
Kev. Alexander Kent, pastor of the
People's Church, addressed his congrega
tion yesterday on "A man's life." Be J
drew his text from Luke, 12,xv: "Take i
heed and keep yourself rrom all covetous
ness, for a man's life coiiblsteth not in ttie
abundance of the things which he posses
beth." Dr. Kent stated that this text is usually
employed by the pulpit as an antidote
to tlie discontent arising from poverty, and
to remove that sense of wrong and in
justice which so often rankles in the
human breabt In view of the disparities in
"But," baid Br. Kent, "this interpreta
tion not only mibses the whole point of
the text, but arrajbit against the general
trend of Jesus' thought. And "hatls far
more important than this, it is unethical
and immoral, becnusu It teaches men to
rest content under wrongs and iujustlce
which they should oppose with all their
energy and might.
"One of the multitude that gathered
to listen to the now prophet bald. 'Master,
bid my brother divide the inheritance with
me.' But Jesus replied. '.Man, who made
me a judge or divider among ou7' This
was the province of a court, not of a
teacher, alien Jesus, turning to the people,
spake a parable unto them of a certain
rich man, who, when his barns wcie full,
built Mill larger ones, and then bestowing
his goods in these, congratulated himself
that as he had enough goods laid up for
inuny years, he 'might take his ease, eat,
drink and be nierrj, careless, of course, of
the need and miberj of his brothers about
him. But the time came when Death
stood at his door and demanded his life,
and then he realized what a fool he had
beon iu concentrating all his thoughts
and affections upon things from -which
he mubt part.
"So, bald Jesus, he that iajeth up
treasure for hinibelf who is concerned only
about hib own ease, his own comfort, his
own happiness, and is not rich toward
God is not rich in those divine affections
and activities which give one fellowship
-with God, und which is their sphere of
action m enlarging and enriching the 11a es
of others. Now, there Is nothing in all
this to warrant any poor man in being
content with his poverty, or in being sat
isfied with a sjbtem that brings iiulllons
to the few and misery to tho many.
"A nation that makes material gain itx
chief end and aim will always be ruled
by the men who hold the bulk of its
wealth, and especially by those who Control
its medium of exchange. Our only hope
ot salvation today is the hope that men
may be induced to see the folly and
wlckednebs of this miserable Hrife ror ma
terial gain hy the "t arious legalized methods
of exploitation and robbery which men
have dignified or have sought to dignify
with the name ot 'business," and that,
in a spirit of mutual regard and brotherly
kindness, they may be led to put a-ay
every form of device for exploiting and I
defrauding each other, and adopt a system
In which justice and the law of reciprocal
service bhall have recognition."

THE DIVINITY OF CHRIST
Dr. Stafford's Views of the Power
Some Seasonable Heniinisccnees of
the Birth und Progress of tho
Dr. D. J. Stafford preached at St.
Patrick'b Church yesterday morning an elo
quent sermon on the lessons of the Christ
The preacher said that when we look
back to the beginning of Chu&tianlty and
the great moral and religious revolutions
that followed, the more we think about
It, the more it seems to be the work of
God. Homer among the poets and Plato
among the philosophers were called divine,
but the were only bo In the broad sense.
The Lord -was divine in a literal sense.
In tlte early days or the Roman empire
Christianity -vvab iu Its cradle. Eighteen
hundred years afterward a traveler visits
Rome and sees the Roman forum a place
of rulnbund the spot v here Caesar's house
stood a place or vlblons and bats. He bees
whut Christianity is, but where ib the
There must needs have been- some
cause Tor this great change Christ caused,
and we ask Who is this Jesun Christ'.'
It Is the supreme question ot life, and
the most Important that has ever agitated
Christ could have gained popularity bet
ter than the Gracchi; et He .did not.
He refused to appeal to the sword. He
did not use the power of genius, for He
chose as disciples men dull ot mind and
blow of belief. He was cither God or
au imposter, and no man can pass him
by like the agnostic without considering
Him either oue or the other. No man,
school, philosopher, scientist, or govern
ment can be indifrerent to Him. lie was
divine, and we see that He set up a
great center ot Christianity in the very
center ot paganism. Christus rcgnat,
Christus vineit, Christus imperat.
