Joston Minister Says American
Religion Becoming, More
Boston, Mass. "The Past and Fu
ire of American Christianity" was
lie subiect of the sermon preached
ly Rev. Dr Charleys E Park recently
the First Church in lioston. Dr.
Parks said in part:

There is today a very real revival
interest in religion and in the
lurches, which is caused by certain
real sober realizations which have

irtly as a result of the war, partly as

And wc find in the one the same cos
mopolitan Variety that wc find in the
other Wc arc still too young to have
developed anything like a peculiarly
American religious life, a peculiarly
American type of religious expres
sion, and organization. The blending
process is not yet finished.
"The melting pot is still bubbling
and boiling merrily away. Wc hope
sooner or later to draw forth from
it a distinctive American character
and a distinctive American civiliza
tion. In all probability, a distinctive
American religion, if it ever comes
at all, will be one of the last products
to emerge from that inching pot,
"Our religion in the last two cen
turies has gradually become more and
more socialized. Without relinquish
ing its interest in the individual it
has enlarged its horizon so' as to
embrace within its interest the whole
"That development has been com
mon to all denominations of Ameri
can Christians, so that an act of
social iniquity today makes not only
the Methodist Christian blush with
shame, but it makes the Baptist and
the Presbyterian and the Episcopalian
Christian blush just the same, and
the Unitarian Christian more than any
of them. That thought of a socialized
religion is full of promise and hope
for the tuture.
"For when a great variety of Chris
tians wake up to the fact that they
arc all working for the same end, not
only in Heaven, but on earth, not
only to save private souls, but to
niakc America here and now better,
cleaner, nobler and more generous, a
kingdom of God upon earth, there is
bound to creep into the hearts of
those various Christians a deep sense
of their essential Christian oneness
and brotherhood."

Increase Greatest in Tobacco

for Farm Labor Increases.

House. Farm land values In Kentucky
as a whole have increased approx
imately 11 per cent in the last year,
according to the March agricultural
report issued here by the Kentucky
office of the United States Bureau of
Ciop Estimate. In the same time
farm land values in the United States
as a whole have increased approx
imately 20 per, cent
The increase in Kentucky has been
greatest in the tobacco producing sec
tions, amounting in many instances
to wild speculation and inflation in
the richest Blue Grass counties, and to
vcy great increases in the richer sec
tions of Western Kentucky..
Good plow lands and improved
farms in both Kentucky and the en
tire United States show not only
greater increase in value in dollars
per acre than docs poor plow land or
unimproved farm land, but also show
greater percentages of increase in
value per acre.
Plow Land Increases.
Since March 1, 1910, good plow land
in Kentucky, considering all parts of
the State together, has increased from
an average price of $80.00 to $05.00
at prcscn.t; poor plow land from
$.17.00 to $42 0); average of all plow
land from $0100 to $70 00; average
of all improved farm land from $81.00
to $85.00; and the average of all un
improved farm land from $01.00 to
$02.00 an acre The comparatively
small increase shown in value of un
improved and poor lands gives by
comparison a partial though inade
quate idea of the .extent to which the
boom has been pushed in the richer
During the same time average land
values for the United States as a
whole have increased as follow; good
plow land increased from an average
of $0183 to $11X34; poor plow land
from $31 20 to $G0.70; average price
of all plow land from $74.31 to $90.01;
improved farm land from $81.89 to
$90.24; and unimproved farm land
from $02.08 to $74.41.
Wages for farm labor have increas
ed greatly in the last year not only
in Kentucky but throughout the
United States, yet it is still difficult
to get satisfactory or adequate labor

Nation of dental cripples. Too many
teeth are being pulled.
"People place too much reliance up
on the physician's diagnosis. The
physician says, 'Go get your teeth
pulled; your lumbago is caused by the

does as he is told."

Big Gains In Weight
People in all Ranks of Life Tell
t What Celebrated Medicine Has
Done for Them.
ONE of the most noteworthy fea
tures in connection with Tanlac
and the one that stands out more
prominently than any other, per
haps, is the very large number of
well-known men and women from
all parts of the country who have re
cently reported astonishing and rapid
increases in weight as a result of its
When so many well-known people
of unquestioned integrity make state
ment after statement, eacli corrobor
ating the other, the truth of such
statements can no longer be doubted.
Thousands have testified that this
famous medicine has completely re
stored them to health and strength,
after every other medicine and the
most skilled medical treatment have
One of the most remarkable cases
on record is that of Mrs. Viola Ives,
of H15 Cross street, Little Rock, Ark.,
whose statement appears below.
"In May of 1013." said Mrs. Ives,
"I suffered a complete breakdown of
my nerves and my entire system gave
way About six weeks afterwards I
was carried to the hospital. I be
came perfectly helpless couldn't
move any part of my body and just
lay there in bed for live "months, not
knowing anything or anybody. I was
brought home in October, 1913, and
tried all kinds of medicine and every
thing I was told about.
"I read about so many people get
ting relief by taking Tanlac aifd my
husband got me a bottle. After taking
three bottles I began to feel better.
I have taken several bottles of Tan
lac now and I can walk anywhere
and sleep like a child. When I took
my first doseof Tanlac I weighed only
one hundred and twenty-two pounds.
I now weight one hundred and sixty
two an actual gain of forty pounds
since I started on Tanlac."
Texas Man -Testifies.
Another remarkable case was that
of John M. Crabtree, a general mer
chant of Five Mile Station A., Dallas
"I have actually gained thirty-four
pounds on three bottles of Tanlac
and I now know what it is to enjoy
good health after suffering for twen
ty years." said Mr. Crabtree.
"I suffered with catarrh of the
stomach and indestion for twenty
years and for eighteen months, be
fore I started taking Tanlac, I had
to live ahjiost entirely on cereals.
I spent nearly all of one whole year
in bed and was unable to do anything
at all and I fell off in weight to 118
"After using my third bottle of
Tanlac I found I had increased in
weight from 118 pounds to 152
pounds, making an actual gain of
thirty-four pounds all my troubles
were gone and I was feeling like
anther man."
Captain Jeff D. Riggs, popular P.
& M. V. engineer, running between
Vicksburg and New Orleans and re
siding at 2020 Pearl Street, Vicks
burg, in speaking of his experience
with Tanlac said: "Yes, sir, it's an
actual fact, I have gained twenty-five
pounds on Tanlac."
"Vien I began taking the medi

was simply a nervous and physical
wreck and had dropped down in

truly remarkable statement made by
Mrs, Charles Pcden. residing at 550
Mill Street. Huntsvillc, Ala.
"When I commenced taking the
medicine," she continued, "I only
weighed ninety-eight (08) pounds;
now I weigli 125 pounds, and never
felt better in my life. For years I
have suffered with a had form of
stomach trouble, constipation and
pains in my side and back At times
the pains took the form of torture,
and I was twice examined and each
time I was told that I had appendi

my only hope.
"I had made all preparations for
the operation and called in my sister
to tell her good-by, as I did not know
whether I would live to see her again
or not. My sister begged and pleaded
with me not to allow them to cut me
and told me to wait and try a good
tonic for awhile. The next day, as I
returned from the consultation room.
I thought .of what she said, and as I
had heard' so much about Tanlac, I
decided to try it and got a bottle."
"I never returned for the operation,
but just kept taking the Tanlac. Right
from the start I began to feel better.
The medicine seemed to take hold,
right at once.
"I was so happy over the wonder

"I have gained twenty pounds on

said Mr. Weeks.
"For twenty years I suffered with
nervous indigestion of the worst sort,"
he continued, "and at times during
the past fifteen years I didn't think
I would last much longer. To tell you
the truth, I finally reached the point
where I didn't much care whether I
