A VM ARE WIDELY USED Telephones Are Now in at Least 500,000 Rural Homes. INTRODUCED LAST FIVE YEARS Or;C'"l Cnt Bt-lnjf .-! lo Own tin lit Various Wy. It is estimated that during the last five years telephones have been placed in nearly 500.000 rural homes. The farm er finds that with the telephone he can keep in touch with the market, selling his produce or live stock when quotations are the most favorable. By sparing himself and his help use less trips back and forth for the pur pose f delivering his products or of ascertaining the status of the market, he now saves a vast amount of time in the course of the year. When he is assured by information over the tele phone that he can" sell to advantage, he loads his wagon and not till then. As illustration of the advantage of keeping in telephone touch with the market, an incident in last year's tinusactions in broom corn in Illinois Kilmer. Prop. RigKt in Line we claim to be prove the claim -for all kinds of plumbing, wa ter and gas fitting; leaks, burst pipes, bad jobs repaired in haste and yet to your satisfaction, at figures that won't af right you.

A prospective rise in the market was preceded by great activity on the part of the brokers. Buyers from the outside began to clean up the broom corn at $60 per ton, when a telephone manager called up the farmers on his system and told them the market was rapidly rising. The result was before the season end ed they got $240 a ton for their crop. One farmer reports that in addition to getting nearly double the usual work of his teams through their being saved futile trips to market, he has been able to do away with the hire of two men. as he could spend more time on his farm, and save the diminished output of the hands at work in his ab sence. Sawed Home From Fir. Another farmer saved all his build ings by being able to summon help quickly from a nearby town, and also from his neighbors when a fire broke out. Still another, by getting a phy sician, promptly saved the life of his only fod, when the delay of half an hour would have been fatal. It is new n common practice for the countrj doctor to give directions by telephone for the patient, both diagnosing and prescribing. In Illinois the speeches of a recent political con vention were listened to by the farm ers cn a rural system as they sat in their homes from 15 to 30 miles away. Being in speaking distance of his neighbor, not only does the farmer feel a new sense of personal security, but he knows that his belongings are safer from molestation than they ever were before. The telephone has been instrumental in causing the ar rest of many horse thieves and out laws, and in some districts the farm ers have almost broken up chicken stealing and petty larceny by tele phoning the police and commission merchants of their losses, and thus enabling prompt arrests to be made. So easy has the organization of rural telephone systems become that it is safe to predict that within a very few years the majority of the 4.000.000 farmers said to be yet unprovided with telephone service will have fol lowed the example of their more en terprising brethren and brought themselves within touch of civiliza tion. If any community wishes to in stall a system, no matter how limited, it has only to communicate with a reputable installation firm to receive the fullest and the clearest instruc tions as to how to go about it. Form Cooperative Companies. A favorite method of organizing is for the farmers to form partnerships or cooperative (mutual) companies for the furnishing cf service only to the locality in which the subscribers live. Sometimes the service is furnished by nearby telephone exchanges run ning lines into the rural districts. In some places service cannot be gien by city companies. In such case the farmers can form themselves in to a company, subs-cribe for the stock on pro rata or other hasi. and install the system, running a direct line from their switchboard to that of the near est town or city exchange. This is called the community system, the heart of which is the small switch board from which radiates in differ ent directions the lines to which the various subscriber telephones are attached.

Marquis Says Eastern War is Ultra-Progressive vs. the Ultra-Conservative. JAPAN FAVORS CHRISTIANITY H"r 8ncce Means Carrying For wa.nl of Civilizing Influence in North China. "And ye shall Lear of wars and ru mors of wars: See that ye be not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet." Matt. 24:6. The above was the text of Rev. V. S. Marquis last evening at the Broad way church. His subject was "Chris tianity's Interest In the War." He said: "The Prince of Peace came with His message of peace to 'a world full cf REV. W. S. MARQUIS. hatreds and strife. The gospel has always made its way through the wars and intrigues of the wicked world. The Master warned his disci ples in the beginning. '.See that ye be not troubled. A new war of peculiar interest and vast importance to all the world js lieing waged. We are in terested in it because of the disparity of the powers engaged. Japan, with 111,000 square miles and 43.000.000 peo ple, faces Russia with 8,645.000 square miles and more than 129,000,000 peo ple. It is the pigmy measuring anus with the giant. We are also interested because of the contrast in the spirit of the two nations. Japan represents the ultra-progressive and Russia the ultra-conservative. Which will win? We are interested deeply in this war because it is certain to change the map of the far east. Whichever na th.n wins will clinch its victory with territorial possessions. ' The occidental nations fear this, hence the note of Secretary Hay which has met "with such favor. It is a wise effort to pre vent that breaking up of the map of Asia, which can hardly take place without involving the western powers. Will it succeed? Many doubt it. 'The peace of the world has been cast into the cauldron.' The wisest diplomats cannot foresee the result. From Rnll clous Standpoint. "But we are interested in this strug gle, not only politically and commer cially, but also religiously. The great ethnic faiths are in it. Buddhism, Confucianism. Shintoisin, Christianity have a deep interest in the outcome. Christianity is interested as the prime agent in the development of the mod ern Japan. When Commodore Perry entered the bay of Yokohama in 1854 to negotiate a treaty, he. laid an open bible on the capstan rf his 'ship and conlucted christian worship. That was the introduction of a new force into the civilization of the Sunrise kingdom. The force of christian truth shining from an open bible. The missionaries quickly followed 1 he tieity. "They carried with the gospel west ern learning and the western spirit, and working together, they have rev olutionized Japan. We are interested to see how a child of western civiliza tion w ill acquit himself in this crisis.- "Christianity is also interested in this conflict because she has a large plant and many representatives at work in the lands where this war is raging. The' northern Presbyterian church has in Japan and Korea 125 missionaries working in 40; stations and substations, with , about 12.000 communicants in its congregations. There are probably not less thnn thousand missionaries of all denomin ations at work in the two kingdoms and millions of dollars invested in church, schorls, hospitals, etc. The Broadway church is especially inter ested, since the missionary whom it supports. Rev. (iraliam Lee. is located at Pjeng Yang. Korea, only a short distance south of the Vain river.where the land forces of both Japan and Russia are gathering. Our congrega tion has also put many thousands of dollars in the school buildings and chapels at Pyeng Yang, so that we are anxiouf indeed for n'ir interests in the work at that point. The wo men and children from our stations in Korea have been given leave to find refuge at Shanghai, and we trust are safely there. Opportunity for Work. "Christianity is also interested in this strugfrl". Iecaue she will find it an opportunity to . c7o the work of Christ. There will he a call for work of mercy in arm)- and hospital, and already plans have been set in opera tion for carrying them ouf. There will be opportunity also for the exer- r A 50c. Bottle of Uquozone is the only way known to kill germs in the body without killing the tissues, too. It is the only way to end the cause of any germ disease. It is also a vitalizing tonic with which no other known product can compare. It is new in America, and millions who need it don't know of it. For that reason, we make this remarkable offer. We will buy the first bottle and give it to you if you need it. We will do this gladly to let the product itself show you what it can do. We Paid $100,000 For the American rights to Liquo rone the highest price ever paid for similar rights on any scientific discov ery. We did this after testing the product for two years, through physi cians and hospitals, in this country and others. We paid it because Liquozone does what all the skill in the world can not do without it. Any drug that kills germs is a poison, and it cannot be taken internally. Every physician knows that medicine is almost helpless in any germ disease. Not Medicine. Liquozone is the result of a process which, for more than 20 years, has been the constant subject of scientific and chemical research. Its virtues are de rived solely from gas, made in large Eart from the best oxygen producers. !y a process requiring immense ap cise of Christian courage faith mid en durance. The war will tests the eon verts of Christianity in many ways. The iloxer uprising i:i China has al ready proved a great blessing to Christianity. The native Christians stood fast and proved the sincerity of their faith, and many doors were op ened for the advancement of the king dom of Christ. So it will be in this war. It means a wider "open 001 r" for Christianity. While therefore we lament war, while Christianity has done nothing to foment this war, while she will suffer great losses of property and life, we are confident that it will mean larger opportunity and real gain for her in the end. Christ's word is our comfort. 'See that ye be not troubled; these things must come to puss; but the end is not yet.' " Dr. HUT Ha. Intcreatlnar Story. Dr. T. C.
