the family removed when he was '2 years

at the age of 34, and spent three years in
missionary work at Duluth and Brainerd.
He received a call to Omaha and for ten
years was dean of Trinity cathedral in
that city, leaving there to accept the pasto
rate of St. Paul's. His benelicient work in
this field is attested by the large increase
in membership*iu the church during the
past year.
The Duties of Christians Set Forth
in a Clear Manner.
Key. Frank Millspaugh preached his an
niversary sermon, showing the work of a
year, and for which the parish has reason
to rejoice, from Isaiah lxii., I—"For1 — "For Z ion's
sake will 1 not hold My face," from which
we quote: A solemn message is commit
ted to us by the very fact of our belief in
Jesus Christ and his work. With this faith
comes responsibilities of which no Christian
can denude himself — to warn the wicked
man to turn from his wickedness; to blow
the trumpet, when we see the sword coin
ing, to peal into the ears of men sunken in
earthliness and dreaming of safety, the cry
which may startle and scare, " Watchman,
what, what of the right!" Again, those
who trust God. remind Him of His promises
by their very faith, It is a mute appeal to
His faithful care, which He cannot but an
swer. Prayerless work will soon slacken
and never bear fruit. Idle prayer is worse
than idle; you cannot part them if you
would. How much of the busy occupation
which is called Christian work is detected
to be spurious by this very test. God asks
not romantic impossibilities from us, but He
does ask a continuous, systematic discharge
of the duties which depend on our relation
to the world and on our relation to Him.
Let it be our life's work to show forth His
praise." He continued, "It is nearly
seven years since the. first meeting was held
looking to the formation of Paul's parish.
As the result of the work of my predeces
sors, faithful parishioners and my own
.vithin ten as many persons have been bap
tized this year as in the history of the par
ish. |; Twenty have been confirmed and ten
more await the. apostolic rite. May it be
but a fifth of the number who will present
themselves at the time. One hundred and
forty-five have been added to the list of
communicants. I have married eight
couples and committed nineteen bodies to
God's Acre — one of these, a rare example to
his brothers of a devout life and death,
asking for the holy communion as his last
act before his entrance into paradise. An
other was one of the founders of the parish
and almost constantly the instructor of the
youth in the doctrines of the church of
Christ." Another remembered before her
death that what she had in worldly goods
was given her of the Lord, and gave in re
turn a goodly portion for carrying on the
Sheltering Arms, our home for orphans and
half orphans." He continued to speak of
the organization of the parish and their sev
eral deeds of loving kindness, among which
was the Parish aid, which was contributing
£600 a ear for charitable work; the Mis
sionary society, which had sent boxes to
missionaries valued at S170; St. Andrews'
brotherhood, the first organized in this dio
cese, which worked for the good of young
men; the Young Women's guild, which at
tends to church decoration and vestments;
the committee for St. Barnabus hos
pital, which had furnished two
rooms at an expense of $150. and the
committee for Sheltering Arms and several
others. lie added: "You should be very
happy over the fact that although you gave
so much for the debt on the parish church
you were unselfish enough to give over
SOOO for missionary and charitable work
outside the parish. The parish is not the
end of our Christian work, but the means
through which we assert an influence for
good. People who have been baptized, con
firmed and are communicants, ask a man
much like themselves, but set apart by an
ordination which reaches to Christ through
the apostles, to be their spiritual guide. He
comes to help then: to bring others to the
Savior by the acceptance of baptism, con
firmation and the holy communion, accom
panied by repentence and faith. He comes
to help them to be better. He is not to
lord it over God's heritage, nor is he to do
all this himself. Let us be mindful of the
fact that in this work on earth for the
saving of our own and our brother's soul
the question is not how little but how much
can we do. He closed with a statement of
the debt, declaring it to be the one thing
which stood in the way of aggressive work,
and besought his people to "erase man's
debt from God's property. "
Abraham Was God's Friend and
God Was Abraham's Friend.
Key. J. J. Hall preached in the First
Free Baptist church on the subject, "The
Friend of God." Taking for a text the
words, "He was called the friend of God."
Mr. Hall said: "As we look back to the
early age of humanity we feel like exclaim
ing, 'there were giants on the earth in those
days!' Men who stood above their fellows
and the age in which they lived. The
book of Genesis deals chiefly with the lives
of seven such men, Abel, Enoch, _*ioah,
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph. Exo
dus brings prominently before us Moses.
Among these, and in fact among all of
earth's great men, Abraham holds no sec
ondary place. The Jew's to this
very day regard him as* their
great ancestor, while Christians acknowledge
him, "the father of the faithful." The
ancients were not ignorant of his existence,
and different sects have claimed him as the
patriarch and founder of their religion.
But Abraham's highest honor is reached in
this that he was called the friend of God.
■Not' in the niche given him by history in
her temple, but in the place accorded him
by the "Almighty. Aud if Abraham was
God's friend, '. God was Abraham's friend.
Beared among an idolatrous people, he
boldly chose to become a servant and a wor
shiper of the Most High. If he were the
only worshiper of the God of heaven he
was willing to stand alone, and as a brilliant
light seems to shine the more intensely be
cause of the darkness around it, so the
choice of Abraham appears the more signi
ficant in contrast to the superstition and
practices of the people among whom he lived.
By his implicit obedience : Abraham proved
the sincerity of his friendship to God. His
life was remarkable for the many and often
startling summonses which came to him from
the Unseen, but with the apostle of after
years he might have said: : "1 was not dis
obedient unto the heavenly vision." To
the call "Get the out of thy country," lie
obeyed. What a sight for us to behold!
In the eatly stages of human history, when
no Bible could be his guide without friends
to encourage or cheer, this solitary worshiper
of the Most High goes forth from ids nation
and from his kindred. Once again he is
tested and this time at every point of his
being, but strong in faith he shrinks not to
render a complete obedience. As a
true worshiper lie went on his
march from place to place. Not
only did lie pitch his tent but he also
built his altar and called upon the name of
Cod; and if the altar showed to surround
ing people that he was a worshiper of the
Most High, his tent proved that he was a
stranger and a pilgrim here. He claimed
not a foot of land as his own, and one of the
most touching scenes recorded of his event
ful life is that which took place just after
his beloved wife Sarah died. He stands be
fore the people and says: "I am a stranger
and a sojourner with you; give me a pos
session of a burying place with you that I
may bury my dead out of my sight." But
he looked for a city, not of earth, but of
heaven. His friendship was tried, but it
stood the trial; it was lasting, for it en
dureth unto the end; it was practical, and
shaped his entire life. He deserved the
record, and is known as the friend of God.
The Title of a Sermon Preached by
Rev. n. D. shutter.
At the Church ot the Redeemer, in the
evening. Rev. Mr. Shutter preached the
following sermon, taking for his text Heb.
xi., 27:
From the attractions of royalty, from high
places ot honor and power. Moses turned
away. ' An invisible goal was before him,
the liberation and enlightenment of his
people, the triumph of freedom and justice.
Towards that goal he was led by an un
seen hand. "He endured as seeing Him
who is invisible."
The greatest and best things of life are
the things we do not see. which our hands
cannot handle, which cannot be weighed
and measured, whose price cannot be com
puted. Justice, truth, love, sincerity,
righteousness, courage, gentleness, purity
—all that goes into what we call character
— these invisible qualities are highest and
strongest and best. However one may
grovel, however he may be engrossed in
material things, there are lucid intervals
when he feels that he is not what he should
be, that there is something else he would
attain. Now and then the plan of God
rises before us. To help us attain the
"measure of the stature of its fulness" are
certain invisible forces.
Jesus tried to teach us all our oneness
with God. The great men who have
moved the world, who have wrought mar
vels in the pi ogress of the race, have felt
themselves controlled and guided by an un
seen power. Let any one feel that he is
encompassed by God, that lie is permitted
by God, that he is one with the Father,
and his life aud thought must take a higher
tone. "Ye are the temple of God; let no
man defile the temple of God."
Another of these invisible forces is con
science. In one of the religious books of
the Hindoos a certain king who had de
serted his wife and son is thus addressed by
the forsaken woman: "If you think lam
alone you do not know that wise man
within your heart. He knows of your evil
deed. In His sight you commit sin. A
man who has committed sin may think that
no one knows it. The Gods know it and
the old man within." There is no escaping
the grip of this unseen hand. We may sin
against conscience, may steel our hearts to
its sword thrusts, but it is still there. It
holds its ground. If we do not heed its
still small voice, it will finally speak in
tempest and earthquake.
There are other invisible influences. Let
me speak to the young. How many eyes
ure fixed upon you! How many hopes are
centered in you! How many high expecta
tions entertained of you! How many
friends you have have who believe in
you! Are you all .they think you?
Are you on your way to all they
hope for you? Opinions may change,
views of life may change, but see to it that
your honor and manhood do not rot away.
Be true to the best ideals formed for, you
in the brain and heart of love!
The memory of our dead shall help us.
How sweet the influences that come from
the tombs of those we lost for a moment, to
find again everyday. They are the best
and strongest forces in life. They hold us
to honor and manhood and virtue. We
think of all that was good in them, and it
touches all that is good in ourselves. Tlieir
wishes, once disregarded, we now sacredly
fulfill. Prayers that once fell unanswered
from their lips, blossom and bear fruit over
their ashes. Admonitions and precepts to
which we once turned a deaf ear. stir our
blood like a trumpet To be what they
would have had us, becomes our aim. Be
true to the hopes of the living; be true to
the ideals of the dead.
A Sermon Showinc That Human
Power Cannot Cope With Satan.
At the Trinity Norwegian Lutheran
church Rev. M. Falk Gjertsen preached a
powerful sermon on "The Power of Satan
and the Means of Deliverance." His text
was taken from Math, xv,, 21-28. Below
is a synopsis of the sermon:
Through the lives and dying words of the
patriarchs, through the psalms and the
prophet, we hear a cry for deliverance: "O.
that the salvation of Israel were come out
of Zion," "0, that Thou wouldsi rend the
heavens, that Thou wouldst come down."
And it was not temperal bondage, not the
yoke of Egypt and Babylon, that caused
this sigh of pain and expectation; there is a
worse captivity, a more ctuel tyrant than
Pharoah and Nebuchadnezzar, the captivity
in sin, the bondage of the devil, and it is
deliverance from this terrible slavery that
was promised our fallen parents in the
garden, "The seed of woman shall bruise
the head of the serpent;"it is for this deliver
ance the fathers of old were sighing. And
He has come, the liberator; He stands in the
midst of us bruising the serpent's head,
casting out devils.
The power of the devil is fearful. How
many homes lie shattered, how many hearts
lie crushed, how many fond hopes lie
blasted in his path. See how he lays his
traps for the young, disguises himself, look
ing at them through a picture, touching
their hearts with a song, through a book,
from the stage, from the. sparkling wine
glass. How fearful is his power when he has
taken possession of them. See his chain
around the miser, the adulterer, the drunk
ard, the gambler; hear his language on their
tongues in curses and blasphemies. Human
power cannot help. Education, science and
culture may learn to control the powers of
nature, but never the powers of darkness.
The highest institutions of learning are not
more moral and virtuous than the common
schools, and our most cultured society, our
own Washington with its galaxy of states
men and its congregated wisdom, is not
more virtuous than our farmer community
throughout Minnesota. Science and edu
cation often only giveQ this fearful enemy a
new weapon. Where is help? Where the
woman of Canaan found it Jesus Christ
alone can cast out devils. She was a
mother. A shipwrecked mother held tip
her child out of the waves, crying: "Save
my child!" O, ye mothers, do yon pray for
your children? With your children do you
plead with them for Christ? How many of
you hold your sons and daughters up out of
the waves of danger and temptation, cry
ing: "Save my child?" See how site holds
out, although seemingly cast off; how she,
bending her head humbly as the storm
passes over her, still clings to the Lord
with her prayer and her faith, until she has
conquered the Lord. And having con
quered Him, having brought Him over on
her side, the devil is conquered at the same
time. • .
Peculiar methods to Break Up a
Rival's Business.
The new Columbia restaurant and music
hail recently opened on Third street' south
has done a land oflice business, and this
seems to have awakened the ire of certain
competitors. The proprietors of the place
are Messrs. Flannigan, Sullivan and Shaw,
who are understood to be the proprietors of
several establishments where the tiger is
on exhibition. A petition is being circulated
among saloon and restaurant keepers which
asks the mayor: to close the gambling
nouses. The document is a remarkable
one, in which it is recited that as the pro
prietors of the Columbia have chosen to go
into. legitimate business they shall confine
themselves to it and not undertake to gobble
everything in sight.'

Spies For a New Purpose— New
.Laws and New Propositions.
The saloonkeepers were yesterday again
agitated by the prospect of further annoy
ances in the shape of prosecutions for non
compliance with the state law, which for
bids the keeping open of saloons after mid
night and on Sunday, lt was reported,
also, that one of the new laws which was
passed by the recent anti-Donnelly legisla
ture'forbids the issuence of liquor licenses
to any one who has violated the closing
law. It was discovered that a n tim
ber of spies were about, collecting
evidence, and this added to the consterna
tion. Some of the leading drinkeries were
closed, but others were open "on the side,"
and the rear doors were unlocked. At
Moore & Twambly's a card was posted
which read: "Not open to-day." At the
Columbia a man was refused a glass of
Apollinaris water with his dinner. The
West and Nicollet bars were labeled
"closed." At Benard's the bar was care
fully draped from the ceiling to the floor,
and a card displayed which read:
* By kind permission :
* of Aid. Lawrence and ;
: Scrap Iron Bill this :
: Bar is closed. :
Another feature' of recent legislation that
is bothering the saloonkeepers is in the
Crandall law which provides that licenses
issued during March, April, May and June,
1887. shall expire July 1, and shall be issud
for the intervening time pro rata, if this
is done the saloons will pay $80 per month
from May Ito July 1. There is a disposi
tion on the part of some of the aldermen to
allow the saloons to run without license for
the two months, and ; City Attorney Cross
says that this can be done, or that a nomi
nal tax for May and June 'can be fixed.
This plan to show any concession whatever
to the saloonkeepers will, of course, be op
posed by the earnest workers in the Held of
temperance, so there is more fun ahead.
At Which music, Literature and
Art Are Dt»cus«ed.
A number of the ; leading Scandinavian
gentlemen of the city met at the West hotel
last evening and indulged in an. informal
discussion of the ways and means for ad
vancing public interest in the literature,
music and art of their native land, which
pleasant task was accomplished during the
courses of an excellent dinner, served in
perfect style. There has been a desire
among the art-loving Scandinavians for
some time past, to establish in connection
with the Exposition a display of the art
treasures of Norway and Sweden, works
highly appreciated in Europe, but of neces
sity little known in this country. The talk
last evening showed a disposition on the
part of the gentlemen present to take hold
of the matter in a business way; probably
an incorporated association or company
will be formed, with sufficient capital to
bring to Minneapolis an exhibit of Scandi
navian art that will reflect credit upon the
Northland and create an abiding interest
in our own country. There is also a move
ment on foot to secure for a concert tour in
this country the meat Swedish male choir
of Upsala. Nothing was done at the din
ner last night save to thoroughly canvass
the general subject in an informal way.
Those present were Col. Hans Mattson, A.
Sodorsthan, M. Ninnons, O. Searle, A.
Zimmerman, A. C. Haugan, O. Ellison, P.
Clementson. C. F. Struck, C. C. Bennett
and S. E. Olsen.
Opposition to Rev. Lannian Van
ishes and He is Called to Re
The regular congregational meeting of
Bethlehem Presbyterian church was held
yesterday afternoon :at the meeting house,
corner Twenty-sixth and Pleasant avenue.
The question of calling a pastor was the
principal . business; to be transacted. The
Rev. Joseph Lannian was called to the pas
torate by the vote of a large majority of
the congregation. was some oppo
sition. but t> in .numbers and influence the
minority was comparatively small. The
meeting was 7 thoroughly harmonious, and
the presbytery, which meets in April, will
no doubt extend the formal call to Mr. Lan
man. as the church requests. This church
has been under the pastoral direction of its
present minister since its organization,
some three years ago, when twelve persons
constituted the . membership. Under Mr.
Lanman's care the membership has in
creased to over 125, and the society is in a
flourishing condition. During last week
there were sensational reports touching a di
vision of the congregation on the matter of
keeping Mr. Lanraan. but the opposition,
which charged him with preaching chest
nuts, dissipated like'smoke when the meet
ing was held. ? %
An Afternoon of Melody at liar
-• . - nioiiia.
Fully 800 people assembled in Harmonia
hall '; yesterday afternoon to listen to the
eighth concert given by the Danz' orchestra.
By many who have attended the entire
series yesterday's entertainment was con
sidered the best yet given. The opening
number, "Shoene Galathe," overture of
Suppe, ; prepared the audience "_- for
a rare treat. The first movement
of Raff's symphony, "Yon Walde," was
the second selection; it was splendidly
played and received hearty applause. The
third number was an original composition
for string orchestra,' the work of Ernest
Lachmund, the 'celloist of this city. It
represented the happiness which '.the Christ
mas tree brings to little folks; it consists of
four parts, the Christmas tree, hobby horse,
prayer and , good night. Of these the first
and third were very beautiful, the one con
sisting 'of a light, sparkling air, full of
childish gladness; the prayer was an exquis
ite andante, and so suggestive of pious de
votion was the deep harmony that the au
dience .was. hushed and silent. The work
is highly 1 creditable to its author, proving
that his musical knowledge is not of that
superficial sort which displays itself in brill
iant technique alone. '.',"; .
Charles H. Freeman delighted the audi
ence with his flute solo, and. though the
applause was deafening, he could not be ;
prevailed upon to play a second time. The
remainder of the programme was * most
efficiently arranged. First came, byre
quest, Vieuxtemps, "Reverie." one of the
sweetest tilings in the whole range of or
chestral music; then followed Gounod's
"Funeral March of a Marionette," In which
the strongly accented tune was in striking
contrast to the dreamy beauty of the "Rev
erie." There were several musical tricks
in the number which put everybody in a
gobd humor, and the call for more was so
vehement that Conductor Danz repeated
the last movement.
Then came the soul stirring strains of
"Ergus Animam," from the Stabat Mater;
it is grand music and was grandly played.
The beauties of the music were skillfully |
revealed, tho perfect crescendo, starting
with the theme carried by the flute, and
with increasing sound bringing in the other
instruments until the aria was thundered
forth with the full power of the whole
orchestra, being perhaps the best work of
the day. The programme closed with
Weber's "Jubel" overture. It is extremely
florid, and demands artistic handling; the
rendering given was very brilliant and
thoroughly satisfactory. The next concert
of the series occurs March 20.
Considerable Business Transacted
at the Meeting: Yesterday.
There was a large meeting of the North
western operative millers at the hall, No.
220 Nicollet avenue, yesterday afternoon,
when H. G. Goodlad, of Black Earth, Wis.,
was elected to membership. The matter of
securing permanent rooms in which to hold
meetings and establish a reading room was
discussed at some length, and G. W. Rath
bun, L. H. Lisk. F. A. George, F. J. Clark
and J. E. Kruin were appointed a committee
to attend to the matter at once. F. J.
Clark, secretary of the benefit bureau, pre
sented revised by-laws, which were adopted.
A committee of five was appointed ■to fix
the salary of the secretary of the employ
ment bureau, and to decide on the price to
be paid by men for whom positions are se
cured. The association decided to pay the
secretary 525 a year for his services", the
pay to date back to the time of his election.
The Globe was the first to announce on
Friday morning last the passage of the bill
extending the term of City Treasurer Moulton
for over a year and a half. The announce
ment created great surprise everywhere and
nearly as much disgust. There Is no objec
tion whatever to Mr. Moulton, but. there was
something so underhanded and contemptible
in railroading the provision through, under
cover of a general bill, that it could but ex
cite wrath and disgust. The people , elected
Mr. Moulton for two years, and for only two
years, and the people were not -consulted in
the extension of his term. They may have
agreed to it, but they were not asked. A
man may give a dollar, if requested, but he
will seriously object to being robbed of even
that sum. This legislative provision is a
sneak and is resented as such. If Mr. Moul
ton shall be shown to have had any connec
tion with it his defeat hereafter will be a fore
gone conclusion.
It is understood that Aid., Ed Johnson was
the author of the provision, and that he
skillfully inserted it in the midst of an omni
bus, bill, which, was railroaded through in the
rush at the close of the session. If so, it re
flects no credit on that scintillating luminary.
Mr. Johnson bad better make good use of bis
time until April, for after that his self-con
stituted leadership in the council will depart
from him. it is a notorious fact that he leads
the dominant party in the council by the
nose over the protest of several good men
who writhe beneath the party lash. But the
brilliant statesman and confidential legal ad
viser of the board of education will find the
council chamber filled with men by the next
election who will relegate him to his proper
The ward muddle is as bad as ever and can
didates are drawing lots to find out where
they live. It has finally settled down that the
First ward is all of that part of the old First
ward lying west of Fifth street, and the Ninth
ward is the balance, including the new terri
tory. . The other changes are perfectly well
known. Yet the Tribune of yesterday, in at
tempting to follow the lead of the Globe
and publish a map, : made many ludicrous
bulls. It located the First and Ninth wards
incorrectly in its description, and had the
Third und Tenth divided by Lyndale avenue,
instead of Twenty-sixth avenue north. If
this kind of thing keeps up it will become
necessary to furnish each voter with the
plans and specifications of his dwelling place.

An Old-Time New England Doctor.
Waterbury American.
Dr. John D. Meers, of Naugatuck, was
widely known as one of the most skillful
and successful physicians of his time. His
practice among the farmers was quite ex
tensive and it was his custom to take his
pay for services in the produce of the farm,
seldom or never keeping accounts or mak
ing any charges, but sending for a bushel of
potatoes or corn or a barrel of cider as he
happened to want it His drafts on the
farmers were always honored at sight, for
he used to say he "did not intend to over
draw," and, as the families in those days
were large and the children quite as likely
to be sick then as now, it is quite likely that
he paid in his way for all that he
received. He was always very careful
not to iujure his patients and gave very lit
tle medicine, but, if called to see a man
who was a little out of sorts, would pre
scribe a diet of toast and cider, or some
thing equally simple, and leave nature to
effect a cure. He was once called to see a
man who had been in bed several days, and
on entering the room lie sat down, stuck
his long legs under the bed, moved his spec
tacles to the top of his bald head, and sat
and told stories for an hour. He then sent
oue of the boys to draw a glass of cider,
which he drank and made his preparations
to leave the house. The sick mail asked if
he was not going to prescribe for him, or
give him something to take.
"Oh, yes, yes," replied the doctor: "you
just get up and stir about a little and wash
up and put on a clean shirt, and you will be
all right, I guess. "
-Notwithstanding the doctor's peculiari
ties in such cases, he was one of the most
careful and devoted physicians in cases of
dangerous illness, and would often appear,
unsolicited and unexpected, in the sick
room long after midnight, so great was his
anxiety for the welfare of his patients.

Extraordinary contempt of Court.
London Telegraph.
An extraordinary incident has just oc
curred at the Rouen court of appeal.
Three men who had been sentenced to
various terms of imprisonment at Havre
appealed to the Rouen court. They were
brought in together, and on the first pris
oner being asked the question, "Have you
appealed'?" he replied, "Yes, I did it to 'see
it the Rouen judges were as great rascals as
those of Havre."
Tins piece of impudence produced a great
sensation, and the man was forthwith con
demned to one year's imprisonment for in
sulting the magistrates.
What was the general surprise when the
second prisoner, on being asked the same
question, returned an identical reply. This
time the judges dealt out a double penalty,
and he was sent off with two years' im
prisonment to his book.
No one dreamed that the third man would
dare to face the court in this insolent fash
ion after the punishment to which his two
companions had been treated, and a thrill of
amazement ran through the audience when,
in answer to the formal query, "Have you
appealed?" ho returned the same reply:
"Yes; I did so to see if the Rouen judges
are as great rascals as those of Havre."
The court sentenced this man to three
years' prison. fISN

Curiosities of Horse Trading-.
Pittsburg Dispatch.
Saturday night the disposal of a horse oc
curred under curious circumstances at a sa
loon ou Thirty-third street The owner
first put it up at auction. When he found
that not more than SlO would be realized he
stopped the proceedings. He suggested in
stead that it change owners by the pitching
of dice. Thirty persons took part, and the
owner and another man held the highest
number. In a final pitch his opponent won.
When the animal was being led away it fell
helpless while descending a clay bank. This
so worked on the sympathies of its original
owner, and aggravated the feelings of the
winner, that it was finally returned to the
first for.the consideration of Si.
Expresses the . feeling of many of the vic
tims of rheumatism, neuralgia, sciatica and
nervous or sick headache. Having tried
numberless so-called remedies and physi
cians of all schools without relief, there
seems to be no hope. Many such have, as
a last resort, tried Athlophoros and to their
surprise and joy have found that it was a
safe, sure and quick cure. Athlophoros is
not an experiment; thousands have been
cured by its use, and they testify as to its
value. .',.'■.•
G. W. Oakes, Filley, Mo., says: "Ath
lophoros has done more for my rheumatism
than anything 1 have tried. 1 have paid out
three or four hundred dollars for doctors'
and other medicines, but nothing did me
any good until I found Athlophoros."
. F. L. Davis, insurance and loan agent at
Missouri Valley. la., says: "1 have used
Athlophoros and it cured me completely.
Several years ago, while away in an ad
joining town on business, my attention was
called to this medicine by a physician and
friend who showed me a bottle and pack
age and made the remark that if I was ever
troubled with rheumatism, use this medicine
and it will soon cure you. About two years
ago my legs suddenly began to swell and
pain, particularly at the knee joints; on
my right knee there was a bright red spot
that pained me most. In a few days I was
aware it was rheumatism; my legs and feet
kept on swelling until I could not move
my toes, and for many days and nights 1
was oblieed to sit, eat and sleep in a large
chair. I placed myself in the care of a
physician, but he did me no good. I then
abandoned the medicine 1 had been using
and commenced with Athlophoros. The
first three doses relieved me, and with one
bottle I was well." :^___E|
■ Every druggist should keep Athlophoros
and Athlophoros Pills, but where they can
not be bought of the druggist the Athlopho
ros company, 112 Wall street New. York,
will send either (carriage paid) on receipt
of regular price, which is SI per bottle for
