IN MISSION WORK
American Board's Figures of Receipts
and Expenditures Are Re
-Boston. Dec. 24. The annual re
port of the American Board of For
eign Missions contains many interest
ing figures. The total amount of dis
bursements during the past year was
$748,308. an Increase over the previous
year of $7,783. The excess of expendi
tures above the receipts was $22,737.
The tendency of the expenditures is
upward, even while the basis in ap
propriations for general work remains
the same. This year the Increase Is
due largely to new efforts to enlarge
the constituency through the young
people's department. The additions to
the conditional gift were $71,420. The
fund now amounts to $4C2.2S3.

THINK 0VR THESE FACTS
And You Will Surely Say That We
Are in the Right.
There is nothing which a man en
joys more, or takes more solid com
fort in, when at the fireside wfth his
family, at the club or speeding across
the country in a Pullman than a good
smoke. It is the man's delight, and
nothing seems so pleasing to a smok
er as when one's friends say "Have a
smoke?" Just think it over and you
will say. "That's right." Why then
would not a Christmas box of cigars,
a handsome pipe, cigar holder, or some
choice smoking tobacco; make a splen
did gift and stop all further worry
ing? You will find at these stores the
greatest display of ; the world's best
cigars, and smoking materials to be
found 'anywhere in the state, Chicago
not excepted. Come and see for your
self. . You will be astonished at this

No More Suffering.
If yon are troubled with Indigestion,
get a bottle of Kodol Dyspepsia Curo
and see how quickly it will cure you.
George A. Thomson, of Silencer, Iowa,
says: "Have had dyspepsia for 20
years. My case was almost hopeless.
Kodol Dyspepsia Curo was recorn-
mended, and I used a few bottles of if,
and it is the only thing that has reliev
ed me. Would not be without it. Have
doctored with local physicians and also
at Chicago, and even went to Norway
with hopes of getting some relief, but
Kodol Dyspepsia Cure is the only rem
edy that has done me any good, and I
heartily recommend It.' Every person
suffering with indigestion or dyspepsia
should use it." Sold by all druggists,
A. R. Kane, a prominent druggist
of Baxter Springs, Kas., says: 'Chan

in action and with no tendency to
