the church nev.er hr.d been the prime
mover. It was not the author ot
the slavery agitation, was not the
apost'.'J ot prison retorm, it did not
start the temperance leform, it was
behind in most of the great measures.
"1 was told once by a preach.er, a
i'.aptist preacher, that if I did not
stop preaching my views agairs. capi

closed : gainst me." ,he said, smiling
from itnaer his shaggy biack K ?nr

softly as if weoing the l.oston police.
And then he fairly thundered: '"I t dd

be a few courthouses, theaters,
streets and Metholist pulpits hi

me out it would net m.van that T was.

unworthy ef me." If,e explained then
that he was not preaching against
capital punishnvnt so much in Hie
hope of abolishing it in his day :.s

Your taste vill tell you that! For Camels have the flavor
and fragrance of choicest tobaccos, perfectly blended.
They're smooth and mellow-mild.
And there's NO CIGARETTY AFTERTASTE.
We put the utmost quality into this one brand. Camels
arc as good as it's possible for skill, money and lifelong
knowledge of fine tobaccos to make a cigarette,
That's why Camels are THE QUALITY CIGARETTE.
