for everything, but it you have kidney, liver or
bladder trouble, it may be found just the medicine

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 and 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 .or 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 ta*k and it invites the co-operation of Christian America
for the speedy accomplishment of this great purpose.
The Christian HeraljJ 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 fi\e million readers) by making an
irresistible half-price trial offer.
