Germ-Laden Milk v- HMD EFFORTS GOT THE MONEY Congregation of Pilgrim's Rest Bap tist Church, Are Free From Debt After Forty Long Years. HAVE RAISED OVER $600 That Amount In Cash In Bank and More Than $500 Last Year, Causes House to Flourish. The good, colored Christian people of the Pilgrim's Rest Baptist church, are happy over the fact that an in debtedness which has been hanging over them and their church for the past forty years, has been cleared away and at the present time, the con gregation is under obligations to no one. Within the past two months, $608.16 has been paid Into the church treasury and this amount has been placed in the bank. The members a year ago, raised $510.15 and the more than a thousand dollars has gone a long way in defraying the current ex penses of the congregation, which is one of the earnest working colored people's organizations of the city. Helm Straightens Matters. Rev. J. H. Helm, the present pastor of the church, who came to ICeokuh sixteen months ago, has been the best working minister the church has had in its history. During his administra tion the church has paid off nearly $1,200 indebtedness and at present, owes no one. The minister's salary is also kept up, and with Helm at the helm the future looks bright. The congregation of the church is grateful to many, white citizens and church members for the assistance they have lent and the money given Pilgrim's Rest and under right man agement and a faithful pastorate, the house is expected to flourish and re main free from monled obligations.

Thus the richness °'of the milk is much more than doubled. It is then as thick as thick cream—28 per cent solids, 8 per cent butter fat. Yet, save for the water, it remains natural milk. Nothing whatever is added. When you put back the water you have milk just as it came from the cow, except for sterilization. Like Using Cream' In coffee and on cereals this milk is just like cream, so rich that most people reduce it. In cooking it gives to milk dishes a most surprising flavor.

"It is a wonderful work," Is the way F. B. Beardslee, one of the party", charac terized it. Mr. and Mrs. N. Mederly of Burling ton were Sunday Keokuk visitors. Yet this Is nothing but milk—Just the whole, rich milk. You don't often get that from the milkman because the milk separates. Before it gets to the cooking it is often only a half-milk. Used on the table you have the ad vantage of using a germless milk. Raw milk, as you know, is always germ-laden. Nothing else that is eaten or drunk car ries so much infection. Van Camp's Milk is pasteurized after the can is sealed. It is absolutely free from germs. You can buy, if you wish, a month's supply at a time. It is always on hand —milk or cream—and never any waste. An opened can keeps until you use it up. Think of buying milk from day to day —milk always filled with germs—when a milk like this can be always on hand, always fresh, always the best milk pro duced in America. rw It's Cheaper, T.oo Our method caves the cost of daily delivery. That's about four cent3 per quart. And it saves all waste. In the average femily the use of Van Camp's cuts milk bills square in two. This milk—from the finest high-bred cows tested and pasteurized—costs less than milk-wagon milk. Do you wonder that people now use all we can get from 30,000 cows? 3f( The 16-oz. can—a full pint of Van Camp's— costs 10 cents. The 6-oz. can costs 5 cents. That's with two-thirds the water evaporated. Your grocer gets it direct from our nearest dairy. THEY LIKE THEIR ,C Rev. J. M. Brown, Favorably Im presses Large Congregations at Morning and Evening Ser-. vlcea at Trinity. SERMONS APPROPRIATE Excellent Successor to Dr. J. W. Pot .-•j% ter Has Been Found In New I Pastor of Methodist Episco pal Church. First impressions count most. One of the hardest problems life propounds for a clergyman is what to say to his new congregation on the Initial ap pearance of his pastorate, if he suc ceeds in "reaching" his hearers on the occasion of his first .Sunday ser vice or Wednesday prayer meeting, he has accomplished all. Rev. J. M. Brown, the new minister of the Trinity M. B. church, has "made good" In every sense of the word with his people" and those whose privil ege it was to hear him morning or evening or at both services yesterdayt expressed their opinions candidly, that Dr. Brown is logically suited to occupy the pulpit made vacant by the leaving of Rev. J. W. Potter. A great difficulty confronts any min ister when the matter of choosing the text and context of his first sermons to a new lay are at hand. Thus It was the sermon of a diplomat, that Mr. Brown preached at the Sunday morning service and again a second sermon in the evening. The speaker who talks for Christ must remain in the shadow of the cross, that his words, not himself, may be the more important and that the minister may be forgotten dtiring his delvery. Full congregations attended the morning and evening worship hours at Trinity church, and both themes, adopted by the new paBtor for "Brown, the Man." The editor of the Sioux Falls Amer ican Republic, Geo. W. Egan, in an editorial written about Dr. Brown, pays the following tribute to the for mer Sioux Falls pastor who Is now minister of Trinity church, Keokuk: Reverend J. M. Brown and family left Sioux Falls, last Monday for Keo kuk, Iowa. Dr. Brown, with his estim able family spent several useful and profitable years in this city. The city and all our people are better for their having come and much poorer for their having gone. Dr. Brown was local pastor for the Methodist people of Sioux Falls. Un der his wise guidance and enthusiastic leadership the membership of the local church increased over three hun dred per cent. I firmly believe this large addition to the Methodist con gregation of my city, is largely If not wholly, duo to the personality and In dividual efforts of Rev. Brown. James M. Brown would make good anywhere at anything. Had he chosen his life work In law, medicine or the commercial world a large degree ot success would have attended ,his ef forts. He is a man who will always make his presence felt. He will never get lost in a crowd and will rise to meet any occasion that confronts him. He is no coward. He speaks and acts boldly and bravely whether In the marts of commerce or the temples of God. AH in all, Rev. J. M1. Brown, is a big whole-souled1, Iklnd'hearted fellow—a man. Hence all adjectives are super fluous. He is bigger than sect or de nomination, his religion is universal ana his God Is everywhere. Too wise for narrow bigoted lineB, he has read aright the book of life and preaches, teaches and practices (best of all) the simple beautiful doctrines of The Son of Mary. I tfo, i.'5 ft %NCAAf p$ StERIUZEO regret his leaving and would glad ly welcome him back hence, I say from the fullness of my heart, May peace, success and! happiness ever at tend him and his. My good Metho dist friends have many Godly men for their leaders, but I fear they will search far and wide for one whose labors measured by the years, will sum and total those of my friend, Dr. J. M. Brown. Simple and Effective. My little boy, three years old, trou bled *ie considerably by going to the homes of neighbors without permis sion, so I followed this plan, writes a mother. Whenever I give him per mission to go I pin on him a little card on which is written the word "permission." When the neighbors gee the badge they allow him to stay and play with the children. If he ap pears without it, they send him home. The card can be used many times, and the boy enjoys wearing it. 1 The Electrlc-Llghiedi "On Time" Road the opening of his work here, were well suited for the first occasion. Dr. Brown Is a man who in speak ing, backs his words with force that Is irrestible, yet with an under cur rent of beaming brightness that holds his hearers aloof from the dryness of a cast andi moulded sermon. In that respect he Is greatly like the departed Dr. Potter, who without his humorous remark, even in the depth of a scrip tural passage, was not himself. know socie ty. have lived my life in Standard Plumbing & Heating Co. 27 South Fifth St., Keokuk Homeseekers Rates Round Trip O All Points in West, South, South west and Northwest AT REDUCED FIGURES NEXT DATE OF SALE OCT. 17 Full Information Furnished and Sleeping Car Reservations Arranged by Me Here Is a book by a m»n promi nent in social circles both In this country and abroad.
