Helm Straightens Matters.
Rev. J. H. Helm, the present pastor

sixteen months ago, has been the best
working minister the church has had
in its history. During his administra

$1,200 indebtedness and at present,
owes no one. The minister's salary is
also kept up, and with Helm at the

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.

vantage of using a germless milk. Raw
milk, as you know, is always germ-laden.

Excellent Successor to Dr. J. W. Pot
.-•j% ter Has Been Found In New
I Pastor of Methodist Episco
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
Full congregations attended the
morning and evening worship hours
at Trinity church, and both themes,

"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
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.
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.
"On Time" Road

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

remark, even in the depth of a scrip
tural passage, was not himself.
