QUICK RELIEF FROM
CONSTIPATION
Get Dr. Edwards’ Olive Tablets
1 (,/
That Is the joyful cry of thousands
since -Dr. Jtadwards produced OUve
Tablets, the substitute for calcanei.
Dr. Edwards, a practicing physician
for 17 years and calomel s oid-tirae
enemy, discovered the formula for Olive
Tablets while treating patients for
chronic constipation and torpid livers.
Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets do not
' contain calomel, but a healing, soothing
vegetable laxative.
No griping is the “keynote” of these
little sugar-coated, olive-colored tab
lets. They cause tlie bowels and liver to
act normally. They never lorce them
to unnatural action.
If you have a “dark brown mouth”—
bad breath —a dull, tired feeling—side
headache-torpid liver —constipation,
you’ll find quick, sure and pleasant re
sults from one or two of Dr. Edwards'
Olive Tablets at bedtime.
Thousands take them even’ night just
to keep right. Try them. 10c and 2dc. <

|TOIN” A BOOK.
OF SYMBOLISMS
Last Of Bible Should Not
Be Read “In Spots.” But
As A Whole
DR. SMITH'S LECTURE
“Don't let your attention be centered
upon minor details in reading the Book
of Revelation." said Prof Aiphonso
Smith yesterday morning in his ad
dress before the class at the Presby
terian Church, in the tenth, and last,
lecture in the course on the Bible.
Continuing, he said, in part, that in
one chapter (the twentieth 1 the word
“one thousand years" is used _ The
Prophet seizes on this word in his en
thusiasm. the same as a child does who
says “a trillion." The child does not
even what a trillion it. but uses
the word in its intensiveness to ene
phasize some great thing.
The Bible speaks of fo|giving our
enemies “70 times 7." It does not
> mean that number, it has no reference
to 4HO. but 7 stands for completeness.
Daniel used the word "1.000 years,’
which is peculiar to the Book of Rc-ve
‘ lation. and commentators have written
: a great deal on this subject. The mil-
I lenuialists base much on the phrase
“1.000 years," which really should be
interpreted intensity, and literally
. means the time is coming when Christ
> shall reign for all eternity.
, John, the writer of the Book of Reve
, lation, wrote it on the Isle of Patinos,
j where he saw visions and expressed
them with eloquence.
Instead of Christ being enthroned in
the hearts of people, there was much
’ opposition against the small, strug
gling Christian church, and very little
prospect of this little grain of mustard
’ seed, you call "Christian faith," de
' veloping. Biyf the vision St John saw
has been surpassed in these eighteen
and twenty centuries. We have seen a
thousand tilings more. Christianity u
the religion today, and when the
church bell rings, the sound girdles
the earth, and calls men and women to
' worship everywhere the one St. John
walked with, johrneyed with. Christ.
' the Divine.
r Prof. Smith advised not taking up
1 the Book of Revelation "in spots,” but
1 "as a whole," illustrating that a man
or woman doesn't live, who lias ac
-1 complished anything, whs holds his or
1 her eyes too close to the present. Prof.
Smith quoted:
“Yesterday and today have been
heavy with labor and sorrow, 1 should
s lie unhappy if I did not see the day af
ter tomorrow.” It is our duty, he said.
- ot use our spiritual eyes to look into
the future. The whole world believes
1 in the “Golden Age" of the past. Vir
i gil and all the rest said they were liv
> ing in the “Iron Age."
* S* told us to “right about
face,” If the sun is behind; there are
i shadows. This man caused trie sun to
i rise in front.
Prof. Snith advised makinfg three
t divisions of Revelation; first, “The
: Church Hesitant,”—-the church doubt
ful, despondent. This will cover about
. the first three chapters.
From the fourth to the twentieth.
.■ the second division will be “The
Church Militant," and from the 20th to
the 22nd. “The Church Triumphant."
St. John’s launches his message to
the "Seven" churches. Seven in the
Hebrew means "Perfection." There is
no English word for any such thing.
The "Seven" churches is typical, just
as "John Doe” is a typical man. The
' early part of the Heok is getting ready
for the fight. To him that overcometh,
1 this and that wiH he done. The second
1 part of the Book of Revelation is ob
■ seure, but full of symbolisms. We are
' all familiar. Dr. Smith said, of the sym
bolism of Hawthorne's “Scarlet Let-
I ter.” Always visible on the poor wo
man’s breast, not hard to understand,
the symbolism of sin. Runyon's sym
bolisms are not difficult to understand,
or Maenterlinck's "Blue Bird,” this
most successful piece of modern sym
bolism. Revelation, however, is a very
different kind of symbolism It doesn't
paint the things we are familiar with.
The second part of the Book might be
called the “Battle of the Symbolisms."
The writer had a view of certain pro
’ I cesses and new genera. First, were
I certain “Seals.” The seals played a
| great partr in the early centuries. Cer
; tain great secrets were sealed. John
| had a vision of the truth to be tnown;
of secrets yet to be discovered when
, the seals were broken.
The second symbol is the “great
j trumpet." The trumpet stands for an
nouncing great things yet to be. The
J third symbol was great personalities,
j The vision was of monstrous good and
bad that will come when great people
wifi arrive. The fourth symbol was
“Vials of Wrath.” The orerturning of
the “Vials of Wrath" means pestilence,
earthquake: .plague, devastating forces
of the earth. The last symbolism is
! “Doom,” the great fight between right
! apd wrong No one can r**ad this pm
|of Revelation without being thrilled
There is a conflict of institutionalism
and individualism, personality and en
vironment. There are just two forces,
right and wrflng. They are divided by
a straight line, right on one side,
wrong on the other. The last two
chapters are so beautiful, said Prof,
j Smith, that they are “a marvelous end
j ing of a marvelous hook."
John saw a new heaven and a new
earth. He said tehre will he no more
sea. “He did not mean to put the
sailor oiut of a job." said Prof. Smith
He <fid not mean that there would he
no water. Sea jrneans “division, con
test, antagonism**” Just-because the
sea runs between, it fneans a different j
