it was a lamentable situation that
church-going and church-professing
people had become so entangled and
mnixed up with this demoralizing
agency that they disregarded their
church vows and became a reproach
to the church.
Continuing, he said: "I stand not

would at once be circulated for the

other churches of the town had been
asked to co-operate..

Public is Aroused.
The public is aroused to a knowledge
of the curative merits of that great
medicinal tonic, Electric Bitters, for
sick stomach, liver and kidneys. Mary
H. Walters, of 546 St. Clair Avenue,
Columbus, 0., writes. "For several;
months, I was given up to die. I had
fever and ague, my nerves were
wrecked; I could not sleep, and my
stomach was so weak, from useless
doctor's drugs, that I could not eat.
Soon after beginning to take Electric
Bitters, I obtained relief, and in a
short time I was entirely cured."
