Rhoades. of R. F. D. No 4, of this
place, writes: For Are years after my
marriage, I didn't have very good
health. Every three months I suffered
for several days .. I had terrible
pains in my abdomen and back. I tried
various remedies and medicines, which
gave me no relief.
"Seeing the testimonials In the al-
manac. I thougnt I would try Cardul.
After taking the first one or two bot-
tles, 1 began to feel Detter. I took It
off and on for about four years. I Im-

using that medicine."

SO SMITH DIDN'T GET IT
Debtor Was Perfectly Willinfl to Pay
Bill, and the Arrangement Satis-
fied All Parties.
A very angry client entered a New
York lawyer's office. He had called
opon a debtor and asked him politely
to pay a bill of $2.50, and had been
abutted for his pains. Now he wanted
the lawyer to collect It.
The lawyer demurred. The bill was
•o Bmall that It would cost the whole
amount to eellnot It.
No matter, said the angry one. I
don't care If I don't get a cent as long
as that fellow has to pay It."
So the lawyer wrote the debtor a let-
ter, and In a day or two tho latter ap-
peared in high dudgeon. He did not
owe uny $2.50. and he would not pay.
"Very well,' said tho lawyer; "then
my Instructions are to sue. Dut I
should hardly think It would pay you
to stand suit for so small a sum."
"Who will get the money If I pay
It?" aBked the man.
The lawyer was obliged to confess
that he should.
"Very well," said the debtor; "that's
another matter. If Smith Isn't going
to get It, I am pertetly willing to pay

Doctor Proved Value of Poitum.
Physicians know that good food and
drink, properly selected, are of the ut-
most importance, not only for the re-
lief of disease but to maintain health
even when one Is well.
A doctor writes, "I count It a pleas-
ure to say a Rood word for Postum
with which I have been enabled to re-
lieve so many sufferers, and which I
count, with Its valued companion
Grape Nuts, one of the dally blessings.
"Coffee was banished from my own
tablo some time ago and Postum used
regularly In Its place." (Coffee Is In-
jurious to many persons, because It
contains the subtle, poisonous drug,

struct patients when they take Pos-
tum for the first time to be quite sure

as well as health giving qualities.
The above letter, received over ten
years ago, is fully confirmed by a re-
cent letter from the doctor, in which
"It Is a pleasure to render a good
report covering a product of which I

THREE days have passed since
the death of Jesus on Calvary.
"Gray dawn is streaking the
sky as they who so lovingly
watcned him to bis burying are mak-
ing their lonely way to the rock-hewn
tomb In the garden." All Is still ss
their sandaled feet sweep through the
dew-wet gfbss, the sweet spices in
their arms perfuming the chill air.
As they go they say one to the other:

That question many hearts In every
age since have asked. Sooner or lat-
er we all make the pilgrimage these
loving women made to the place
where rests all that Is mortal of our
loved ones, and there arise in our
hearts the great questions about what
Is beyoiid the tomb. These questions
lie like heavy stones between us and
our departed dear ones, and we say:
"Who shall roll away the stone?"
The message of Easter Is an an-
swer. The Inspiration of Easter Is
that we, too, find the stone rolled
away. We are often told that we err
to sorrow for our loved ones gone,
but this Is not true. Jesus sorrowed
greatly with those who had met such
losses as ours. He would not have
us sorrow as those who have no
hope, but he recognized that It would
be unnatural not to grieve, and un-
kind not to remember. Let us re-
mind ourselves that Jesus would not
have us put away all signs of those
gone out of sight; that he would not
have us live as though they had
never been with us. "They are not
dead; they are Just away." This Is
one stone rolled away from our
Here we desire to do many things
which the limitations of the flesh
prevent. But when the fleshly limi-
tation Is removed our love, our mem-
ory, our aspiration, our results of rich
experience, all those real qualities
which make us ourselves, are free to
do and to be. One of the highest In-
ducements to a spiritual life now Is
thou be with me In paradise," he was
opening the door ot heaven to all the
wide, storm-tossed world; and as the
angel of God came and rolled away
the stone on that Easter morning of
long ago, so he comes to every worn,
bodily casket and sets the soul free
to find glory, perfect life, perfect hap-
piness In some fair haven of God.
And we vex our souls with wonder-
ing where that haven may be. We
reach out eager hands and cry: "What
fca immortal life?"
Friend, it is that live, vital spark
that spells life to you and to me; that,
when the angel rolls away the stone
for us, shall rise, free and untram-
meled, to enter the city of God.
We are living In eternity today—
yon und L We are so close to heaven
that at tlmeB faint echoes of its music
reach us—faint, far-off, wafted by
some close, sweet vibration between
our heart and the heart of the eternal
God—faint, but sure! And we still
our souls In wonder and In awe, for
we understand with a knowledge
born of God that we have caught a
tune from the heavenly choir, and
have for a holy Instant, verily felt the
touch of God. And as the Illy, pure
and spotless, pushes Its way from the
dark earth and unfolds Into glorious
life, so one day, from out all these
earth environments, shall the bouI un-
fold Itself Into broader life.
"For the angel of the Lord descend-
ed from hesrven, and came and rolled
back the stone"—rolled It back,
friend, for you—me—that light might
burst from the darkness which holds
us, pointing the way to a clearer
vision and a truer faith; and the
music that started in heaven and In
earth when Christ came forth—victor
over sin, death and the grave—has
never ceased, and will never cease,
but go rolling on, grandly triumphant,
aa long as earth shall last.

Message of Easter.
EASTER again proclaims its mes-
sage to the world. Nature lends
her enchantment to the day,
and makes all things bright with
her unfolding promise of the res-
urrection. The wooded bills, the
mystic canyons, the flowered mead-
ows, the home-building birds, the
sparkling dewdrops on grass and flow-
er awaken, under the warming rays
of the rising sun, into a world beauti-
ful, made sweeter by the presence of
of Mankind. and

ment of greater effectiveness for life.
That stone 1s rolled away from our
It Is also true that Christ gave
ground for believing that our loved
ones gone are still with us. He told
his disciples that where they were,
there he would be In the midst of
them. He spoke of a home he had
gone to prepare and of coming to take
them to It. Enframe this as one may,
the picture is the same—reunion with
the loved ones gone. You come home
from a trip abroad. As you draw near
the pier the hands of loved ones wave
to you, the steamer ties up to her
wharf and you are again in the arms
of those so dear. So it Is at death.
You have been' long away from those
at home, but the vessel that has car-
ried you—your body—ties up some
day to the little green wharf on some
quiet hillside and you again are with
your dear ones.
There rolls the last stone away.
Rev. John Brittan Clark.
YTfHEN this corruptible shall have
Vy put on lncorruptlon, and thts
mortal shall have put on Im-
mortality. then shall be brought to
pass the saying that is written,
"Death is swallowed up In victory.
O death, where Is thy sting? O grave,
where is thy victory?"—for when
the Christ, nailed to the Cross on that
far distant dfcy. turning to the
thief beside him cried: "Today shalt
him who is risen from the dead. And
man, looking up from his work, re-
In city and country; in art-domed
cathedral and Isolated church; in

monious cadence, sometimes soft and
low, and. then again, in accelerated
movement, the glad tidings of Easter-
tide. with its message of the day and
to the day's toilers, "Christ is risen!"
So man must ever seek to rise
superior to the destructive forces
around him. He must measure up
to his ideal If he would escape the
debasement wrought by the domi-
nance of his lower self. In no other
way can he expect to live the ideal
life. His inspiration and ideal are
found in Christ. His entrance as an
amateur into the Christian life is
but indicative of his growth Into that
of an artist. And in this progressive
cumulative ascendancy he is con-
scious of the leadership of One, who,
by one decisive stroke of matchless
power, in the resurrection from the
death, proved his Sonshlp, authority,
superiority and divinity.
Therefore, however wild and steep
your path may be; however mighty
the sweep of sinful propensities and
habits; however dark and threaten-
ing the clouds that cross your path,
take heart and press on! Easter's
message is for the world. It puts a
song in the Individual heart. So as
nature responds to the touch of
epring, may mankind everywhere en-
ter into the spirit of Easter.

form miracles if you could believe
these hot water enthusiasts.
There are vast numbers of men and
women who, immediately upon arising
In the morning, drink a glass of real
hot water with a teaapoooful of lime-
stone phosphate in it. This Is a very
excellent health measure. It Is in-
tended to flush the Btomach, liver, kid-
neys and the thirty feet of Intestines
of the previous day's waste, sour bile
and indigestible material left over In
the body which, If not eliminated every
day, become food for the millions of
bacteria which Infest the bowele, the
quick result Is poisons and toxins
which are then absorbed Into the
blood causing headache, bilious at-
tacks, foul breath, bad taste, colds,
Btomach trouble, kidney misery, sleep-
lessness, impure blood and all sorts
People who feel good one day and
badly the next, but who simply can
not get feeling right are urged to ob-
tain a quarter pound of limestone
phosphate 4rom any druggist or store-
keeper. This will cost very little but
Is sufficient to make anyone a real
crank on the subject of Internal sani-
Just as soap and hot water act on
the skin, cleansing, sweetening and
freshening, so limestone phosphate
and hot water act on the stomach,
liver, kidneys and bowels. It Is vast-
ly more Important to bathe on the In-
side than on the outside, because the
skin pores do not absorb Impurities In-
to the blood, while the bowel pores do.

Nothing Better. Trial Free.
New York World Advises a Change In
Methods, and Presents Arguments
Upholding Its Vision of
Secretary McAdoo is right In the
view that the Income tax needs
; "tightening up." But It needs tight-
1 ening up In more ways than requir-
ing the taxable citizen to make a de-
t tailed return of deductions from gross
The honest assessment of the tax
suffers primarily from the attempt to
•"collect at the source." This amounta
' to an effort on the part of the gov-
ernment to turn over the collection of
; the individual tax to the corporations
at their own Instead of the govern-
I ment's expense. Work which the gov-
| ernment's tax collectors are paid for
I doing Is passed on to those who are
forced to do It without compensation
I and at no end of trouble.
This Is not fair to the collecting
I corporations. It Is demoralizing to
j the government's own collection serv-
ice. It has resulted In Indescribable
| confusion. It cannot but result in
many evasions which are not the In-
tent of the taxpayer.
Taxable Incomes may be derived
from a single corporate source, from
several corporate sources, from no
corporate source, or partly from one
and from the other source. This ex-
poses the assessment to no end of
complications wide open even to hon-
est evasions. But when the work Is
further divided between corporation
assessors for Incomes of corporate
origin and government assessors and
collectors for other incomes, how is
an effective assessment fairly to be
expected? Government collectors who
are required to shirk two-thirds of
their work cannot be depended on to
perform the other third.
Let the government go to the In-
dividual In the first place, and count
upon the corporations only as Infor-
mation bureaus In getting at the in-
dividual and his taxable income. This
is the simple way; it must, accord-
ingly, be the more effective way. It
is more in harmony with that spirit
of the tax which seeks to bring the
Individual Into a direct pocket rela-
tion with the government and the way
the government Is managed.—New
Loaning Government Money.
True It is that In 1888 the Repub-
lican national platform denounced the
Democratic policy of loaning the gov-
ernment's money without Interest to
"pet banks," but President Harrison
and his secretary of the treasury con-
tinued the Bame policy during every
month of his four years of occupancy
of the White House.

Republican Death Knell.
"The Republican leaders have sound-
ed the death knell of their party by
proclaiming that it is a party of the
North and not of the South; not a
national organization, but a sectional
organization," declared Col. William
F. Sapp, Democratic national commit-
teeman of Kansas, in a recent Inter-
view. "The Republican national com-
mittee has voted to reduce the South-
ern representation In the convention.
This is a virtual declaration that the
Republican party does not represent
the South; but the North alone; It Is
not a national organization. There
has been a lot of apparent enthusi-
asm among the Republicans of late,
for what reason I am unable to under-
stand. Certainly they cannot base
their optimism on poor business con-
ditions,'for as an old friend of mine
back in Kansas expressed It, 'business
Is gettln' better every day and the Re-
publicans are throwln' a fit.'"
