Life la Crowlnsr X.onsrer.
From statistics and certain changes in our
tnethods of livir.?, it has been proven that
life is beinK steadily lengthened. We ar
justified in believing this when we consider
the great advance made in medicine during
"the pat fifty years, the most noteworthy of
them being If o. tetter's Stomach 15hter3.
This ideal medicine cures headache, sour
stomach, belching, heartburn and indiges
tion, also steadies the nerves, induces sound
rleep and prevents malaria, fever and ague.

Unable to Stand For Months Bcmum
of Spralnril Ankles.
(From the Card ill Times.)
Among the thousands of voluntary en
dorsements of the great value of tit. Ja
robs Oil for sprains, stiffness, and soreness,
is tnat of 31rs. G. Thomas, 4 Alexandra
Road, Gelli, Ysbrod, near Pontypridd,
South Wales, who says:
"It is with great pleasure that I add my,
willing testimony to the invaluable excel
lence of your celebrated St. Jacobs Oil, as
experienced in my own case. I sprained
both my ankles in walking down some steps
so severely that 1 was unable to stand tor
several months. The pain 1 suffered was
most severe, and nothing that I used he'ped
me until 1 applied tit. Jacobs Oil, wneo
they immediately became better daily, and
in a short time 1 was able to go about, and
coon after I was quit cured. I am now
determined to advise all persons suffering
from pains to use this wonderful remedy,
which did so much for me."
Mrs. Thomas does not enlighten us as to
what treatment she pursued during the
months she was unable to stand, and dur
ing which time she was suffering so much,
but we venture to suggest that had she
called in any well known medical man ha
would have at once have prescribed St. Ja
cobs Oil, for it has conquered pain upwards
of tifty years, and doctors know there is
nothing so good. The proprietors of St.
Jacobs Oil have been awarded twelve gold
medals by different international exhibi
tions as the premium pain-killing remedy of
the world. The committees who made the
awards were in each instance composed
largely of the most eminent medical men
obtainable. Mrs. Thomas evidently did not
know 'the high opinion in which St. Ja
cobs Oil is held by almost every progressive
Point of View.

Some IIemorable Christmas
Seasons in American IStistory
11K1STMAS, the birthday of
the Prince of Peace, has, in
'r I many ways, been a remark
4' auIe day in American his
tory. Not that it has been
a day remarkable for its
history-making events, for almost any
other holiday of the year would proba
bly show a greater number of impor
tant happenings to take them through
out the historical period of the Ameri
can colonies and the American nation,
but the historical events of Christmas
have helped to make the peace history
rather than the war history of our
In our hundred and a quarter years
of existence as a nation we have had
our full share of war, but through
out all of our wars we have fought
scarcely one battle, that might be
called an important engagement, upon
Christmas day. Of the few Christmas
day battles the most important one
was the bombardment of Wilmington,
S. C, by the combined forces of Ad
miral Porter and Gen. Butler, on De
cember 24 and 25, 1864. In that battle
the attacking force was repulsed.
Beginning away back in the early
colonial days and following the his
tory of the day down tf recent years
we find many incidents that mark
Christmas as a day of peace, a day cele
brated by the American people in keep
ing with the life and work of Ilim for
whom it is kept, and whose birth it
The Pilgrims at Plymouth did not
land on Christmas day, but four days
before Christmas, in order that they
might better keep the holy festival
and give thanks upon that appropriate
occasion for their arrival in the new
land to which they had come. They
were a peace-seeking people; they had
crossed the ocean in quest of peace,
and it was at the Christmas season
that they first found it in the new
Throughout the remainder of our
colonial history there is recorded but
little of the events of Christmas day
or of the Christmas season. During
those years it was a time given over
to spiritual meditation, to the per
formance of good deeds, to neighborly
intercourse, and not to history mak
ing. No matter what the trials of the
year may have been, whether one of
dissensions among the colonies, or
wars with the Indians, the Christmas
season usuallj' brought peace and good
will rather than the stirring events re
corded in history.

Pro claims a sa-viour'a birth:

claimed "peace on earth, good will to
men," was that of 1763, when on Decem
ber 23 Gen. Washington reported to
congress at Annapolis the completion
of the task assigned him, and surren
dered his commission as general ia
chief of the American armies. It was
the final act in that long struggle for
our independence, and it came at an ap
propriate time, at a time when the
thoughts of the world turn naturally to
peace. Significant and impressive as
was the simple ceremony in which the
great soldier and patriot figured as
the central figure, it was made the
more so because of the time of the
year at which it was enacted. Peace
came as a blessing to the nation, and
it came virtually upon the birthday of
the Prince of Peace.
In the following year, in the same
state of Maryland, but at Baltimore
instead of Annapolis, came another in
cident in the peace history of America
when on Christmas day was formed
the Methodist Episcopal church in the
United States. Previous to that time
the church had been represented by
ministers of the Gospel scattered
throughout the different colonies, but
they had no central organization. It
was this organization, an organization
that has since carried the message of
"peace and pood will" to nearly all the
nations of the world, which was per
fected December 25, 1S14. It was an ap
propriate day for such an event, and it
was an appropriate event for the day.
As the surrender by Washington of
his commission was practically the last
incident of the revolutionary war, so
did the signing of the peace treaty at
Ghent, Belgium, mark the close of our
second war with England. The second,
like the first, came at an appropriate
time, December 24, 1814. Thus two of
our great wars closed just as the
Christmas bells were proclaiming to
Practically the final act of our great
civil war was the announcement of am
nesty to all those who had waged war
against the government. President
Lincoln had issued two proclamations
of amnesty that restored but certain
portions of the members of the south
ern armies and the southern govern
ments to citizenship, and the final, and
general one, came from the hand of
President Johnson on December 25,
1868. It was an appropriate observa
tion of the day, and an epoch marking
event in American history.
And so it is that Christmas has been
to us as a nation a day of peace as it
should be for all time, and to all the
wright a. Patterson.
