In a voice tint rang throughout the
immense charel the speaker told of the
mistakes made by churches in catering
to the wealthy class He impressed upon
his auditors that it was not wealth that
speeded the advancement of a religious
bod but work On the contiarj he

who according to statements made and
vpnlied failed to contribute as much to

the poorest of the congregation The
addition of wealth persons to the con
gregation of a church said Dr Williams
only tended to lessen the religious bodjs
progress and was nothing moro than an
impediment to progress
Dr Williams also discussed to some ex-
monarchs but had in the end survived to

made up of demand notes -

A remarkable storj of the cmplojment
cf American boys as muleteers on board
the transports earning horses and mules
from New Orleans to the British forces
in South Africa and the subsequent im
pressing of the lads into the English
arm for service against the Boers was
related at the State Department jestcrday
mornim by a father who was seeking his
sons release from the obnoxious condi
tions wrich he is informed exist
The vlsitoi was Frank Porter of Lo
gansport Ind He told of the apprehen
sions which he ielt for the safct of his
son Lenun Torter a bo of fifteen jcars
who left New Orleans on October IS on a
transport bound for Cape Town
Al VfslHtiinee of Mute Ilepin tment
Mr Porter presented no affidavits or
legal leprccntntions of an sort to tho
Dcpartinpnt but asked for the emploj
rtient of Its ofTcIal machiner In securing
the Lojs custody upon his arrival at the
South African port The transport on
which oung Porter shipped as a mule
teer Is due at Cape Town and the State
Department sent a telegram to the United
States Consul General there to appre
hend the boy when he came ashore and
send him back to tho United States at
Mr Porters expense
Though Mr Porter did not specif any
direct charge as the basis of a formal
complaint his represeutations to the De
partment involve charges of bad faith
against the British Government He ex
plained that according to information re
ceived by him a wholesale trade In ship
ping boys to South Africa is being car
ried on by an cmplomeut agenc In St
Tho boys are shipped as transport
muleteers and just before reaching Cape
Ton Mr Porter is Informed they are
told that they cannot go ashore unless
they sign the ships papers as British
subjects Only too glad to get on any
land tne bos sign and Mr Porters u
foimants sa that they are Immediately
impressed Into the British military serv
vice as subjects of the King
Hojm Secured In St Louis
Mr Torter said that he had made an
Investigation of the matter and had re
ceived letters fiom young Americans who
shipped from New Orleans on British ani
mal transports who asserted that many

Mr Porter said was given a commission
of T3 for every bey employed by It for the
British Government He believes that
hundreds of American minors have been
forced to go into the British military
service through the method referred to
Hl3 Investigations have convinced him
that for the past eighteen months tnns
ports Lave sailed from New Orleans for
Cape Town at the rate of one a week
each carrying an average of eighty Amer

CiniiililliitN From Mr Stuvvc
James G Stowe until recently United 1
States Consul General at Cape Town
made frequent complaints to the State
Department In regard to the shipment of
Americans at Xew Orleans as muleteers
on British animal transports Mr Stowe
said that these men became destitute at
Cape Town and besieged the consulate
general with requests for money to return
home Many of them became desperate
and enlisted in the British army Mr
Stowe said In one of his letters that he
had spent much of his private means to
help his distressed fellow countrymen

NFANT MORTALITY is something frightful We can hardly realize that of
I all the children horn in civilized countries twenty two per cent or nearly
one quarter die before they reach one year thirty seven per cent or more than
one third before they are five and one half before they are fifteen
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Gastoria would save a ma
jority of these precious lives Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these
infantile deaths are occasioned bthe use of narcotic preparations Drops tinctures
and soothing syrups sold for childrens complaints contain more or less opium or
morphine They are in considerable quantities deadly poisons In any quantity
they stupefy retard circulation and lead to congestions sickness death Castoria
operates exactly the reverse but you must see that it bears the signature of
