j' Organ Recital.
The services opened at 7:45 with a
short but fine organ recital by H. T.
Graham, the organist, and was espec
ially fine, taking into consideration
the fact that the new organ has not
been all installed yet and many of the
stops are yet to be placed and the In
strument Is In the same condition that
it was at the dedication services on
Sunday but workmen are busy and
this fine instrument will soon be com

by all members of,.the choir and con
gregation 'was sung and opening pray
er was then offered by the pastor of
the church. Rev. Williams, the pastor,
then stated the object of the fellow
ship meeting in a few opening remarks
before introducing the speakers of the
evening. Among other things he
said: "There has always been in this
city, a sweet union of the churches
and it is good for the ministers and
the people to meet together in this
way." In introducing the first speak
er of the evening, Dr. Newcomb, the
,lastor said: "If there is any church
which illustrates the benefit and good

Amendment Ballot to be used at the General Election to be
held in said county on Tuesday, November 3, 1908.
Rev. E. B. Newcomb.
Dr. Newcomb of the Westminster
church then proceeded with his topic,
"The Genesis of Independency." He
took his listeners back to the time of
the landing of the Pilgrim fathers and
going down through those old days
told of the hardships which the fore
fathers endured and how for the love
of their religion and the wanting of
independence in their worship tmy
came to this land from the mother
country to worship God in the way
they chose. The Doctor said in con
cluding his remarks: "What we
want ioday Is the simple things. The
iove of God and his teaching Is what
we want. Wnen you are thinking on
religious life go back to the time
when the little band of Pilgrims came
to this country that they might serve
Christ in the way that they chose,
"May the message of the Mayflower
be repeated to this newer generation,
God granting it."
The beautiful selection. "Lift up
your heads" was then rendered by the
choir. Reverend Harry B. Foster was
the next speaker of the evening and
had for his subject: "The Church as

Remarkable Instance of the Power
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills In
Severe Nervous Disorders
Reported from an
That Dr. Williams' Pink Pills hare
cured obstinate cases of St. Vitus' dance
is the best evidence of their value
in lesser nervous disorders. Here is
evidence that will stand thorough in
vestigation. Mrs. James Wilkie, of 707
Spruce street, Cherokee, Iowa, says:
"I was of a very nervous temperament
even when a child. As I grew to girl
hood, more and more of the work in our
family fell to me. At the same time I
tried to keep up my studies in school.
The strain was too great and at the
age of fourteen I had to leave school,
because of the run-down and nervous
condition I was in. I gradually grew
worse, becoming extremely irritable and
suffering terribly from melancholy. It
was first noticed that I had St. vitus'
dance, when I began to lose control of
the muscles of my face. The disease
soon spread all over my body and my
head, and arms trembled constantly.
'I was in tliis condition for about a ycai
and dwindled away to almost nothing.
Finally I became so weak that I had to
stay in bed all the time. Up to this
time I had been under the care of twe
doctors' and as I became no better gave
up their medicine. After I had been in
bed about two months, my father heard
about Dr. Williams' Pink* Pills from at
old friend. He bought some at oncc
and I started using them, noi
expecting much benefit. I noticed
very soon that the pills were lielpirg me
and that I could sleep better. We nil
thought this 60 wonderful that. I was
encouraged to give them a good trial.
I was soon able to sleep like a log, and
my appetite became good.
"I was sick altogether about one and
one-half years and when I began to use
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills I weighed less
than 85 pounds. I gained weight rapidly,
while taking the pills and weighed
117 pounds when I stopped taking them.
I was completely cored and have never
taken medicine for my nerves since. I
feel that I ows siy life to Dr. Williams'

a Teacher of Doctrine." The two
terms doctrine and church were well
defined by the minister. In part he
Rev. H. B. Foster.
"The church means a body of people
called out and bound together by the
holy bonds of fellowship. If the
church has no special line of teaching
and no doctrine she will have no pur
pose of existing and no mission.
We herald today with joy, the great
branches of church activity. In the
main doctrine will be the mainstay
of the church. The old Congregational
church of early days stood for more
doctrine than it does today. Some of
the churches today are steadfast In
their preaching of doctrine while
others of this same denomination are
lax. I would like to see the Congre
gationalists come over as some part
of the Presbyterian church."
Rev. J. W. Potter.
Rev. Potter took as his topic, "The
Church as a Spiritual Force in the
Community." In his remarks the
minister proceeded to point out to his
hearers why long facedness is not a
part of the Christianity and spiritual
ity. He said: "Spirituality is Christ
likeness and we do not become more
spiritual by hiding from man our joy
and wearing long faces and I believe
more each day that juvenation is more
Christ like and better, and having a
good time in the right way is better
than trying to be a long faced Chris
tian. A man is never an undesirable
citizen if he lives In the Christ and
helps those about him that are in
need. One can be as much of Chris
tian and have much spirituality out of
church as he can in the church."
Each pastor in his remarks paid a
tribute to the fine new church and
complimented the flourishing congre
gation on their beautiful edifice.
