ADVERTISING FOOD PRODUCTS
Statement of Prices and Description of
Goods More Apt to Get Business
Merchants handling provisions
should understand better than any
ne else the value of advertising. Food
ts the most vital need of all. No oth
er advertising gets such intereted
reading as a well-written notice de
scribing food offerings.
Manufacturers of food products on
national scale learned this some.
-time ago. Money is poured out like
water to advertise food products In
the magazines. It must pay, or It
would not be spent.
Yet, In the local newspapers, the
grocers, butchers, and other provision
men do not advertise with the free
dom shown in the dry goods, furnish
ngs, furniture and. other trades.
Probably the reasdn for. this Is that
many merchants of this type never
studied advertising enough to realize
Is possibilities. Here is a sample ad,

f big fellows they send out must cost

and Bgown River Toasted Corze Cobs.
Why, if advertising did not make peo
ple call for these varieties they might
go home, with "something just as

Hi Blinkum's Baled Hay or Skinnem

once said, Is' like the Letilw that

where the rub comes-EL.

religion. It bears in large letters these
words: "Welcome for Everybody in

ends are large crosses and on one end
the wods"Religion for Men" and on

T HE human soul which is never
ter than it is must be shut off
from God. Its communications
with its divine base of opera
tions, through which it draws all its
supplies for the present co'nfict, muit
be in the hands of the enemy, and if
he is not suce'red by the powers of'
God's grace,.he is lost. But is any
human soul so debased and depraved.
that it never looks up with longing
eyes to a higher sphere of achieve
menta than any In its experience?
Who can say that he has known one
human creature utterly devoid of that
Heaveuborn desire to do better, to
live more in accordance with the laws
of God, to abide more constantly by
the truth, to advance further towards
the center of the universe, and to
wards the limit of human endeavor? If
If you cannot remember an instance
of such depravity upon which to base
the harsh belief in a hell without hope,
and a death without resurrection, turn
to your own heart, for there are the
seeds of good and evil, which, being
developed, make up human life. We
are much alike. We do not differ %in
the main points of our characters as
creatures; but. the line between the
creature and the Creator is well de
fined. All men desiret to become bet
-ter, If they could do so without trou
ble to themselves, without bearing any
extna burdens, without making any
extra sacrifices, without giving up any
of the little vanities which have come
to be'a part of life almost, so closely
are they. connected with living, so near
de they lie to the springs of. human
action. "Ah!" says man, "I should like
to take these and be admitted into
the company of the good. I want t4)'
be better, to do what is rig 0
cate the truth by agt-fld word." And
still h-el to1 his trifles. "What
" I do to be saved?" asks such a
man of Christ; and the answer was:
"Sell all that thou hast, and distrib
ate unto the poor, and thou shalt have
treasure in heaven; and come, follow
me" "'And when he heard this he
was very sorrowful: for he was very
rich." The spirit was all that was re
ruired, but, ala., that was wanting. A
compliance 'with the command of
Christ would make man like Christ
himself. God does not expect all men
to sell all, they have and distribute to'
the poor. There must be this differ
ence between the character of Christ
and all human souls who believe on
him and call upon his name: Christ la
bored not for himself, had nothing to
do for himself, but to do the will of
God, and to save mankind by a life of
sacrifice and toil.
Trus. View of Charity.
It bazs been observed by some grave
writers that charity never can be
overdone, though it may sometimes be
ed into error. A man cannot be too
chgrtably disposed. The field has noe
imits, and e work Is God's work.
Yet must a mnan' bes careful how he
uses the' map walch he ,employs to
~ut to return to -he desire to be bet
ter, which, in some degree, all souls
.sae. We have false ideas ,of good
gias somstimes. We are apt to jud'ge
erroeousl~y s to ',hat ,eonstitutes be
neolence and (Ae oppo~4e trait. A
certain physical 4dlicacy' of nerves
sometimes is eglled the @vidence of
goodness. In some parts of th? old
world the people are yery careful not
to take animal life. In Egypt the beg
gar refrains from killing the vermin
on h~Is body, but removes them care-.
fully to the ground. In the same
countries human life is considered of
small account. Among us some can
not bear to look upon suffering., Pam,
misery, the sight of blood affect
them; they will not tread upon a
worm. But such a person may not
hesitate to trample upon the feelings
a a miserable soul whose anguish far
exceeds that of the body.
First, the DesirP to Be Good.
The desire to be good which merits
the promise of the Holy Spirit Is ex
pressed in Scripture by the words hun
ger and thirst, the maning of which
we can, in some sort understand. The
xipwrecked mariner, floating for days
and nights upon the plank which sep
rates hium from death, without food or
drink,.knows wh.at it is to hunger and
thrt, and wheR exhausted nature
sinks to repose he dreagma pf feasts
whIch torment his ssoul with agog~y.
The feelings which maske him so -av
enous are not put Du, 8yP pot 9f the
,utside. They spring from the tounga,
tion of his life; they are the coadi
ions of his existence. In lik. man
ner all moral action must Issue out
o the deep fountains within us, or it
a at the power of salvation. It
ust be the result of a definite pur
pose and a dtermined will- which
form the habits of #f1e. For this rea

One of the many prominent physi
icans and chemists who are nov
wont to take opportunity to frequentl:
pronounce against the use of alcoholi<
drink is Dr. G. Sims Woodhead, pro
fessor of pathology at Cambridg,
University, England. Dr. Woodhead'
latest summing up is clear and, strik

"Alcohol is perhaps the most im

tuberculosis. During the last ter
years the death rate from consump

the decline was 19 per cent.; in Parh
2 per cent. If is significant in regar
to these figures that In this countr3
(Great Britain) the drink bill hai
during the same period dropped fron
$22.30 per head of the iopulation t(
$16.55 per head, whereas in France 11

the decline of the consumption of al

from tuberculosis. We do not say thi
was the sole cause, but we do remarl
that the two things have gone on to

do with the fall In the death rate. A1
the bottom of all, however, we hav4
the gradual diminution,in the amoun!

tremendous gain to the nation.
- "We, as medical men, have to d(
all we can to point out to .the peopl4
that there is a very direct connectioi
