nearly 00 on the roll was organised,
besides some L'o tu uther Schools.
The writer had charge of the meet
ing, but mo.-t of the preaching was
d by Mrs. Mary McMsaten
iii the "State Holiness Associa
tion," who is a consecrated woman
ami an untiring worker for smiis.
Her prasohing was plain gospel, and
she duet not hesitate to call sin by
its rinht name. The converts were

meeting took deep hold on the peo-l

"In treating pneumonia," says
W. .1. Smith, of Sanders, Ala.,
"the only remedy I use for the
lungs is Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. While, of course, 1 would
treat other symptoms with different
medicines, I have used this remedy
many times in tny medical practice
and have yet failed lo find a cate
where it hat not controlled the trou
ble. I have used if myself, at bat
alto my wife, for cought and coldt
repeatedly, and I most willingly
and cheerfully recommend it as
superior to any other cough remedy
to my knowledge." For tale by E.
