the conclusion of the two weeks of dis

to be of unusual benefit. The meetings
in the western and the eastern district
are held at 3 o'clock each afternoon,
but hereafter the services in the cen

He told the story of how the jailer,
aroused to the sense of his condition,
through the earthquake, asked of Paul
"What Must I Do to Be Saved." The
apostle explained that salvation was
not doing, but done, and pointed the
difference between the law and the
gospel: "The law says live and do.
The law says duty or damnation; the
gospel says salvation, and duty after
wards. The law condemns; the gospel
justifies the condemned. The law curs

Under the law the sheep were offered

"Channels of Power." was the sub

'power for man, and that without pray
er, life is ufceless.
Dr. Wheeler brought out in his ser
mon that the greatest power to be ob
tained must be secured through the
agency of prayer. In speaking of pray-f-.r,
he declared that the idea of father
hood provides the answer to the intel
lectual objections to the idea of an
swered prayers. He spoke of the con
tention of some, that if God is the ruler
of the universe, his power is such that
the answering of a prayer of a human
being, an infinite part of that universe,
becomes incomprehensible, and in re
ply he argued that the idea of God as
the spiritual and direct father of all
people does away with the objection.
The evangelist quoted the scriptural
verse, "Ye receive not, because ye ask
not." He denned the five powers of
man as the power of life, the power of
speech, the power of action, the power
of money, and the power of prayer,
and held that the greatest is the power
of prayer. Ilo declared life to be use
less without prayer, and quoted in sup
port of his statements that prayer will
unquestionably be answered if made

In the village elections throughout

instance, though generally with little
to spare. The vote was particularly
close at Cordova and at Andalusia. At
the latter place two trustees of the
license ticket were successful and they
were the only license officers chosen in
the county where the subject was made
an issue. At Watertown the same is
sue was fought, but the margin was
wider. A full ticket was elected, as

CONSTIPATION THE CAUSE OF
Nature's Own Remedy.
Constipation is not only disagreeable
it is dangerous. If allowed to rim
on and become chronic it will proo
the forerunner of sickness and disease.
Nature intended that the bowels shoul I
move regularly at least once everj day,
and she will not be satisfied with any
thing less. The delicate stomach and
bowels are the keystone of the an h
of the human physical organization,
and should be kept in normal working
order to preserve health. When tho
IkjwcIs become sluggish they require
a natural and harmless laxative. Too
often they are permanently damaged
by powerful drugs taken into them sev
eral times a day in the effort to force
action. Nature herself has provided
her own harmless laxative, the famous
Natural Mineral Water Hunyadi
Janos which can be relied on for
quick and sure results. One dose of this
water (',2 a tumblerful) drunk on aris
ing in the morning (slightly warmed
for best results), will, within an hour,
move the bowels gently and copiously.
A bottle costs but a trifle and contains
many 'oses. At all druggists.

way Pine Syrup. Pleasant to take;
perfectly harmless; positive cure for
coughs, colds, bronchitis, asthma.
