TRIUMPHS OF MODERN SUR
Wonderful things are done for the
human body by surgery. Organs are
taken out and scraped and polished
and put back, or they may be removed
entirely; bones are s/Vced; pipes take
the place of diseased auctions of veins;
antiseptic dressings are applied to
wounds, bruises, burns and like inju
ries before inflammation sets in, which
oauses tbem to heal without matura
tion and In one-third the time required
by the old treatment. Chamberlain's
Pain I Ulm acts on this same principle.
It is an antiseptic and when applied to
such injuries, oauses them to heal very
quickly. It also allays the pain and
sorenei*. Keep a bottle of Pain Balm
in your home and it will save you tlm
and money, not to mention the inoo
venience. For sale by Laurena Dru

There is no moro beautiful night for
m mortal oyo to behold than a well
trained,highly cultivated and Christian
youug woman. A yuuug woman \vh 1
scorns the wrong und loves truth, fill
log lifo with sunshine; catching the
sweetest and most lovable along the
journey of life and leaving tho bad to
fado and die. Such was tho life, lived
and exprossed In the life of Miss Eula
Elizabeth Ulakoly who passed from time
to eternity on the morning of May ?th.
just after the clock had fold of the
midnight hours. For nino days this
dear young woman sulTercd untold
misory and pain, yet bho never com

has loft her home?perfect submission
to God' will. For sovo-al years sho has
had great comfort lu the service of tho
Master at the old home church, Beth
any. Sho was a l'rosbyterian, but over
sought to bo a consolation to all. The
train of attondants upon her burial was
numbered by tho hundreds. No doubt
tho family remember tho dying words
as she turned from ono to another of
tho famiiy and seid: "Good-bye," and
her words to the Iviby boy will bo moro
lasting than marble. To her mother and
father, broken hearted and sad, to her
loving and devoted sister Emma, who
was 8s faithfn 1 us over could be; and all
other household b3 this sweet promise
of Christ: "I will not leave you com
fortless, but where I am there ye shall
bo also." No doubt the words of the
poet was never better demonstrated as
' "Tis so swoot to trust in Josus,
Just to take Him at His word:
Just to rest upon his promise,
Just to know, Thus salth the Lord.
"O how swoot to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cloausing blood:
Just In simple faith to plungo mc
'Noath the healing, cleansing Hood.
"Yes 'tis sweet to Iruat in Josu*,
Just from sin ami solf lo ceao;
Just from Josus simply tiklng,
