GRANTS PASS DRUGGIST
HAS VALUABLE AGENCY
The National Drug Co. has the
Grants Tass agency for the simple
mixture of buckthorn bark, glycerine,
etc., known as Adler-l-ka, the remedy
which became famous by curing ap
pendicitis. This simple remedy has
powerful action and drains such sur
prising amounts of old matter from
the body that JUST ONE DOSE re
lieves sour stomach, gas on the stom
ach and constipation almost IMME
DIATELY. The QUICK action of
Adler-l-ka Is astonishing.

matter a record breaking crowd may

PREACHED HERE SUNDAY
Bishop Scaddlng was a guest over
Sunday In this city and addressed the
St. Luke's Sunday school at 10 in
the morning, and celebrated the
Holy Communion and preached at
the morning service. In the after
noon he held a conference with the
vestry and church members, with a
view to finding out what the con
gregation was able and willing to
give towards the support of a resi
His morning sermon was on the1
"Christian Ministry." The bishop j
also described the meeting of the
general convention of the Episcopal
Church which, has just closed its
session in New York; the meetings '
of the Woman's Auxiliary, and Its:
triennial offering for missions ofj
$300,000, of which the women ofi
Oregon had given $1,000; the mass,
meei'.ngs on Boclal service, and thej
legislative work of the Houbo of
Blshoi'3, and of the House of Cler
ical and Lay Deputies.
The afternoon meeting was of the
nature of a family gathering, at
whlah the bishop explained the pol
icy of the Episcopal Church in Ore-,
gon, and the plan of the Board of
Bishop Scaddlng expressed his
great Interest In Grants Pass and St. j
Luke's church, appreciated the good
work done by Rev. Bartlett and Rev.j
W. B. Hamilton and the loyal laymen
The Rev. W. B. Hamilton is still
in charge as vicar and will continue'
to give one service a week and re-j
spond to all sick calls, funerals, etc.j
until a resident vicar Is appointed.
The bishop had recently offered thej
mission to two clergymen, but both:
had declined. The bishop and vestry,
have now under consideration the
names of two strong and well rec-!
ommended clergymen, one of whom, I
it is hoped, will accept at an early!
There was a good attendance of.
the members at this meeting, and
several made earnest speeches re
garding the present status of the
Episcopal Church, and the need of
a resident vicar.
Bishop Scaddlng will return to I
Grants Pass for Sunday, January 11,'
by which time it is hoped the local
problem will be met.
