Restored to Health by Lydia
E. Pinkham’s Vegetable
Fulton, N. Y. — “Why will women
pay out their money for treatment and
-receive no benefit,
when so many have
proved that Lydia
E. Pinkham’s Vege-
will make them
well? For over a
year I suffered so
from female weak-
ness I could hardly
stand and was
afraid to go on the
street alone. Doc-
___tors said medicines
were useless and only an operation
would help me, but Lydia E. Pinkham’s
Vegetable Compound has proved it
otherwise. I am now perfectly well
and can do any kind of work.”—Mrs.
Nellie Phelps, care of R. A. Rider,
R.F.D. No. 5, Fulton, N. Y.
We wish every woman who suffers
from female troubles, nervousness,
backache or the blues could see the let-
ters written by women made well by Ly-
dia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound.
If you have bad symptoms and do not
understand the cause, write to the
Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co., Lynn,
Mass., for helpful advice given free.

Says Corns Lift Out
Without Any Pain
Sore corns, hard corns, soft corns or
any kind of a com can shortly be
lifted right out with the fingers If you
will apply on the corn a few drops of
freezone, says a Cincinnati authority.
At little cost one can get a small bot-
tle of freezone at any drug store, which
will positively rid one's feet of every
corn or callus without pain or sore-
ness or the danger of infection.
This new drug is an ether compound,
and dries the moment it is applied and
does not inflame or even irritate the
surrounding skin. Just think! You
can lift off your corns and calluses
now without a bit of pain or soreness.
If your druggist hasn’t freezone he can
easily get a .small hottle for you from
his wholesale drug house.—adv.

John’s father kept a candy store,
and the little fellow often carried
candy to school to divide with the
other children. One morning the
teacher noticed n strong-smell of pep-
permint and began to investigate in
order to stop eating during school
hours. Unable to detect tile culprit,
she bent over small John and whis-
“John, have you any candy?”
“No, ma'utn,” he replied.
“Have any of the other boys any?”
As she turned away lie touched her
hand and said, "I will bring you some

Salmon Cups. — Chop
fine the contents of a
can of salmon, add to It
a half cupful of soft bread crumbs,
two tablespoonfuls of melted butter,
oue of lemon juice, two beaten eggs,
salt and pepper to taste and a half
cupful of rich milk. Mix until well
blended, then pack in greased cups,

til firm. Turn out and serve hot on
Individual dishes with white sauce.
Salmon Soup.—Cook a grated onion
for ten minutes in a quart of milk.
Add two tablespoonfuls each of flour
and butter, cooked together; add salt
and pepper and half a can of salmon.
Cook ten minutes, press through a
sieve and serve very hot.
Fried Smoked Salmon.—Make a
marinade of four tablespoonfuls of
olive oil, two of vinegar, two cloves, a
bay leaf ami six pepper corns. Pour
this over a pound of smoked salmon
and let stand for several hours. Then
fry the slices in a good salad oil and
serve at once, garnished with slices
Salmon Souffle.—Flake a can of sal-
mon, udd to it the well beaten yolks
of three eggs, n half cupful of bread
crumbs which have heeu soaked in
warm milk, salt, pepper and a little
lemon juice. Beat the whites of the
eggs until stiff, then fold them Into the
mixture. Bake in a moderate oven in
a buttered disli set in hot water.
Scalloped Salmon With Peas.—If
canned peas are used drain them
1 from the liquor, put a layer of salmon,
free from skin uud bones, with a cup-
j ful of bread crumbs and two cupfuls
j of thin white sauce in layers with the
peas and white sauce, using the
crumbs buttered to cover the top. Bake
until the crumbs are brown.
Potatoes may be used in place of
peas. Salmon made into a loaf and

I. The Slavery to Sin. Jesus’ previ-
ous references to water (Chs. 4 and 7)
and to bread (ch. (!) were occasioned
by outward occurrences; so with this
reference to light, in the treasury (v.
20) near to Jesus ns he spake were two
colossal, golden lamp stands around
which when lighted the people gath-
ered with rejoicing. Amid the blaze of
this Illumination, Jesus exclaims: “I
am the light of the world.” What is
more beneficent than light as It re-
veals, cheers and brings life, health
nnd happiness to mankind? Without
light there is no vision. Without Jesus
there is no spiritual wisdom. Without
light we know not whither we are go-
ing. Without Jesus we grope in the
darkness. Every ray of light, of truth,
of holiness and love comes from him.
for God Is light, nnd in him is no dnrk-
ness at all (I John 1 :15). Some think
that these words were occasioned by
the onlookers, seeing what Jesus had
written iu the sand (vv. 1-11). The
first step In the slavery of sin is blind-
ness; the second is habit; and the
third is that of absolute slavery (Prov.
0:22), Jesus was the incarnation of
the light of God. We cannot con-
ceive of Jesus making such an asser-
tion as this, and being merely a good
II. The Possibility of Freedom (w.
81-36.) These words were spoken to
"those which had believed on him,” nnd
as the result they were to know the
truth, and the truth should make them
free. Knowledge and liberty come from
a continuance (abiding) in the word of
God (John 14:15; 16:12-13). Many men
reject Jesus Christ because they claim
they wish to have their liberty, and by
so doing they lose their liberty. A dis-
ciple is a learner: Jesus is the teacher;
the entrance examinations to the
school of Christ are the simple and
necessary condition of believing or nc
cepting him as Lord and teacher. The
scholars are all the disciples who con
: tinue under his instruction. The oh
ject of the schooling is to make pet-
| feet men, “unto the measure of the
I stature of the fulness of Christ" (Eph.
4 :22 ; Col. 4 :12). < ’hrlst’s school is pot
only in the church and in the Sunday
school and Young People’s society, but
| it is everywhere, in the home, in the
| office, at work and piny; wherever one
is trying truly to live according to
Christ’s will, he is in his school, and
that school is open both day and night;
there are no vacations and no recesses.
| The text book is the Book of books.
! " e need not argue as to the necessity
of sin, but realize the fact that nil are
j under sin (Rom, 5:12), but being un-
der sin does not necessitate our abid-
ing there, nor Is sin necessary to our
| being. This freedom here is from sin
nnd the love of sin and the curse ami
the penalty of sin and the bondage and
corroding care of sin. It is also mental
freedom, freedom for Christian nc-
tlvity. A knowledge of the English
Bible is a liberal education, and brings
true liberty to those who are thus edu-
cated. As contrasted to that we have
the slavery of sin (vv. 34, 36). The
drunkard is a slave because he Is re-
strained from doing what he knows he
ought to do. He cannot even do wrong
freely for his conscience constantly up-
braids him. He is a slave because lie
is compelled to hear the consequences
of sin against his will. The way
escape (v. 36) Is through the son:
the son therefore shall make you free
ye shall be free Indeed."
III. The Authority (vv. 50, 58). The
Jews took exception to the words of
Jesus (33-55). When did Abrnhatn see
Jesus? Rend the 18th and 19th chapters
of Genesis, and we find that one of the
three who visited Abraham was differ-
ent from the other two, anil remained
behind while two went on to Sodom.
Tiie one who remained was the Lord
Jesus, Jehovah appearing in human
form before his later incarnation as
Jesus of Nazareth.
"I Am” Is the name of Jehovah.
Jesus here takes that name to himself.
There was a time when Abraham came
to tie or was (v. 58). but there was
no time when our Lord ever came to
he for he Is the eternul “I Am.” Being
thus one with God, he has the power
to set men free.
We have In this chapter the picture
which Jesus draws of the character of
the devil ns the enemy of mankind un-
der two aspects: First, he is a mur-
derer (v. 44).
No war has sluln what intemperance
(ono of ills favorite Instrument*) bus
slain. Second, he Is a liar.

Lax-Fos is not a secret or Paten* Medi-

In Lax-Fos the Cascara is improved by
the addition of these digestive ingredients
n aking it better than ordinary Cascara,
and thus the combination acts not only as a
stimulating laxative and cathartic but also
as a digestive and liver tonic. Syrup laxa-
