N HUMAN PROGRESS
The conflict between Evolution and the Bible has been sharp
Nevertheless, unnecessary friction has been generated
Only In respect to man does the Bible declare a special, direct
creation o f God. The statements of Genesis In respect to the
lower creatures rather favor something along the lines of spe
cialized Erolutlon. God said. “ I.et the waters bring forth abuu
dantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may
fly above the Earth." (Genesis 1:20. 21.i This is exactly In
harmony with our scientific findings that the beginning or life
came from the waters, and later extended to the birds, and
later to land animals

Against Bowel Trouble
Many children at an early age
become constipated, and frequently
serious consequences result. Not

parents know how hard it is to give
the average child "medicine,” even
though the taste is partially dis
guised. In using Dr. Miles’ Lax
ative Tablets, however, this diffi
culty is overcome. The shape of
the tablets, their appearance and
candy-like taste at once appeal to
any child, with the result that they
are taken without objection.
The rich chocolate flavor and
absence of other taste, make Dr.

remedy for children.

the price is returned. Ask your
druggist. A box of 25 doses costs
only 25 cents. Never sold in bulk.
