The' report of Deputy Food and
Dairy Inspector Paul V. Marls, in
1 which he calls atttentlon to the use
less erpense, of our dairymen making
two deliveries daily suggests a still
greater expense that the buying pub
lie has to maintain simply becauao

Jalns one 'if not two individual de
livery rigs. It Is no uncommon thing'
JO ee tnree delivery rigs represent
Ing an many fli??.r?I?i houses in the
'same block at once. What a wastV
of time and energy I the cost of d
' livery under the present system would
be cat at least one half If not more
If the city were divided Into dis
tricts and deliveries only made In
those districts twice dally, once in
the forenoon and once in the after
noon. By so doing the entire deliv
ery system could be let out by con
tract and a great saving would be
made and a uniform service effected.

What others say, concerning the work
i of ErangeiiNt llobl E. Johnson
From Rev. J. Wilbur Chapman, D.
D. "Robert. E. Johnson has been as
sociated with me in simultaneous ev
angelistic campaigns and he has done
considerable independent work in the
different towns and cities of the Mid
dle Western Country. I consider
him one of the safest and sanest men
I know, and he Is in every way wor-
people with which he labors."
jFrom Evangelist R. A. Torreyf-"I
have known Mr. Robert E. Johnson
fOr several years personally. I hold
him with high regard. He is in every
ay a trustworthy man."

What six ministers say. "As a fede
ration of ministers wotking In a un
don campaign we do unqualifiedly
f-omraend Evangelist Robert E. John
son. From the standpoint of thorough
ness, fearlessness and abounding
Christian courtesy, he is a peer am-
png evangelists. As strange as It
may Beem, he Is free from all cant,
hobbleB and any lorm of religious
aberrations. He is a clever execu
tive, a veritable Nepoleon and Inde
fatiguable, fortunate are the churches
that labor with him. His bold, courag
eous stand on the Holy Word, com
bining a happy gift of exposition and
modern putting of things, make him
invincible as a preacher, and Irre
sistible i as a winner of men. Mr.
Johnson- has captured our city for
God, and has accomplished a work
which In range, intensity and thor
oughnesB, far surpasses anything of
the kind In the religious history of

Mr. F. A. Reynolds,
Chamberlnln, S. D.
Dear Sir: "Your letter of the Eth,
speHklns? of the result of Mr. John
son meetings there, has been re
ceived, and I congratulate you on
the splendid showing made. I have
great confidence In the success of
the meetings. Johnson Is a splen
did fellow, and undoubtedly one of
the greatest evangelists In the coun
try." Sincerely, '

In the list of towns that went dry
in Illnois last spring, appearing In
the Chicago Tribune, it waB a re
markable fact to observe that in most
of these towns, or at least a large
proportion of them, Billy Sunday the
Evangelist had cleaned up the town
before election some time during the
year. How long shall we he learning
that the Church of Jesus Christ Is
the greatest temperance organization
on earth.' In a similar sense, Robert
( B. Johnson the well known evangelist
I turned three towns out of four dry.
After he had held meetings In our
own state, Groton, Aberdeen, Brltton
and Alexandria were turned up aid;
down, and each went dry. except
Aberdeen. In each town the liquor
men fought him like tigers robbed of
their young. If there Is any min

The superintendent of the league
gives to each pastor his unqualified
endorsement of Brother Johnson as
