Weak, Thin, Nervous
People Should Take
What It Is And How It Increases Weight.
Strength and Nerve-Force.
Judging from the countless preparations ami treat
menu which are continually being advertised for the
purpose of maklne thin people fleshy, developing arms

feel their excessive thluness.
Thinness and weakness are often due to starred
nerves Our bodies need more phosphate than Is con
tained in modern foods. Physicians claim there Is
nothing that will si-pply tills deficiency so well as
the organic phosphate known among druggists as
b:tro |thuspliat?>. which is Inexpensive and is sold bv
most all druggists under a guaranteo of satisfaction
or money hack.
Hy feeding the nerves directly and by supplying the
body cells witli the necessary phosphoric food elements,
bILro-phosphate should soon produce a welcome trans
formation In the appearance; the increase in weight
frequently being astonishing.
Increase in weight also carries with It a general
Improvement in the health. Nervousness, sleeplessness
and lark of energy, which nearly always accompany
excessive thinners, should soon disappear, dull eyte
brighten, and pale cheeks glow with the bloom of
perfect heal'li.
CAPTION ? \Vblle Rltro Phosphate Is unsurpassed
for the relief of nervousness, general dehlllty. etc..
those taking it who do not desire to put on flesh
should use extra caro in avoiding fat-producing food.

A Giant
Forward Stride
in World Service
Aggressive Christianity in America to be the
dominating force in the uplift of mankind
The Christian Herald, as the leader in interdenominational
periodical family literature, and being absolutely free from sec
tarianism, is the natural spokesman for broad, unfettered, con
structive Christian &nd social service.
The Christian Herald is convinced that some powerful and
already established force must take the initiative in world better
ment; that in the prevailing social unrest and industrial turmoil
the fundamental principles of Christianity have been disregarded,
in whole jor in part, by both labor and capital.
That even the Church itself has not fully measured up to its
opportunities in the gigantic struggle is demonstrated by the
various "movements" within the denominations. These are good;
essential ; and now . the Christian Herald has entered the arena
to co-operate with them and to take its rightful place as a power
ful, aggressive factor in the rebuilding of social, religious and moral
standards of practice.
The Christian Herald believes that capital and labor- alike
will not only attain a permanent peace by laying their differences
on the scale of righteousness as taught by Jesus Christ, but that
both will be the gainers; that confidence in one another will be
re-established and that industrial strife will be at an end.
The Christian Herald will therefore do its part in this tre
mendous task and it invites the co-operation of Christian America
for the speedy accomplishment of this great purpose.
The Christian Herald has decided to sacrifice all its immediate
profits from new subscribers in a big drive to extend its present
300,000 circulation (representing a million and a half readers) to
the million mark (representing five million readers) by making an
irresistible half-price trial offer.

The Christian Herald is one of
