The Woman's Medicine Has
Proved Its Worth.
When Lydia E. Pinkham'a remedies
were first introduced, their curative
powers were doubted and had to be
proved. But the proof came, and grad

whole country. Now that hundreds of
thousands of women have experienced
the moBt beneficial effects from the use
of these mediaines, their value Bas be
come generally recognized, and Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is
the standard medicine for women.
The following letter is only one of
the thousands on file in the Pinkham

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com

could hardly straighten up. My sister
was sick in bed for two months and

She saw an advertisement of yourmed

Salem Mission,
Freed From Debt
Now Has New Pastor
At the business meeting of the Sa

harmony prevailed, hr. Melnturff, who
has been asking to be releuscd from
the Mission as pastor that he might be
free to work in a larger field persuad
ed them to accept his resignation and
suggested that Hro. K. K. Spiker of the
Cluistinn i'Ii ii n-li and who has been
working in the Mission as assistant pas
tor with Hi'. -Melnturff for two years,
become the pastor, it was unanimously
carried, also Rev. J. T. Horning, of the
Minonite church was unatniously chos
en to act as assistant pastor, and Miss
Charlotte Horning to play the piano.
The treasurer, Miss llaverson, gnvo a
most gratifying report showing that
the last payment had been made on the
piano and all furnishings of the hall
and tlint there was not a dollar indebt
edness nguiust the Mission.
A tender and touching service fol
lowed the business meeting over which
the new pastor presided. Many were
the words of appreciation for Dr. and
Mrs. Melnturff 'a faithful earnest work
during the past two years, as they have
toiled without salary as pastor and

spirit that was manifested towards the
new pastors and the promises made hv
them to stand by the work.

Called By Friends to This
City From Pastorate In
( Far North Country
Misa Ethel AVilliam-s, of 1770 Fair
grounds road, holds a rather unique po
sition in the tity, that of pastor in Ka
lem of the Church of God. .''he preaches
at the regular services JSunduys and
hag charge of the regular Wednesday
evening prayer meetings. Having been
in charge of the Church of Ood at
Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, for several
years, she came here last October at
the urgent call of friends, as the church
here had no regular pastor. Since that
time she has been actively engaged in
the work, although the church at .Saska
toon is awaiting her return.
Misa Williams first became interest
ed in the Church of God about 11 years
ago, while living near Grand Valley,
Ontario. Frequently at meetings heid,
when no regular pastor was present, she
felt called upon to speak, feeling that
she had a message to deliver. Continu
ing in the woTk of the church, she felt
more tho responsibility of helping oth
er people and as the call to preach be
cuine stronger, she was ordained at
Grnnd Valley "and took up her first
charge at Dashwood, Ontario. Here she
was in charge of the church for two
years, later being pluced in charge of
the Church of God at Dundalk, mid
Welland, Ontario.
Two years was passed as assistant
pastor at Edmonston, Alberta, in a
church that had members and a congre
gation of several hundred. Her next
charge was at Saskatoon, Saskatche
wan, where she remained for two years,
as active pastor of a church with an
attendance of more than 100.
Not only for the benefit of her health
but from the calls of friends and the
feeling that her work was in this field,
Miss Williams came to Pulem, and since
then has had active charge of the!
church and its work.
"The term Church of God," said
Miss Williams, "is taken from the
Bible. We have no discipline, no creed.
We take the Bible as it is and believe
that if nil Christians could get togeth
er, regardless of creed, they would ex
ert a greater force and influence in the
world. Tho Church of God is trying to
gather together His people, like in the
early davs of the church.
The Church of God. in its organiza
tion, comes direct, from the neonle.
Those with a message, may preach. The
church believes in immersion after con
version. Anyone having been saved
mnv become a member of the church.
Tho services of the church are much
the same as others. The pastor is main
tained ttirouch tree will offerings, with
no stated snlnry. The teachings of the
church eome direct from the Bible, be
lievins( that unity among Christians
would accomplish more for the good of
peorilo than a diversity of creeds.
The Church of God, of which Miss
Williams is pastor, was built about
four years ago at 177(1 Fairgrounds
road, and at present the average at
tendance is close to 50.
Although the cliurch at Saskatoon is
awaiting her return, Miss Williams says
that her futuro depends upon what she
regards as her duty and if -she remains
here, it will be from tho fact that sb
is called to this work. Miss Williams
lives with her mother in a cosy little
home near the cliurch.
In explaining tho belief of the mem
bers of the Church of God, Miss Wil
liams said: "Wo believe to be saved
and really given up to servo the Lord,
brings such joy and blessing, that the
heart is fully satisfied and there is a
power there to enable you to do right
in every circumstance."

Interesting Points About
Laymen's Missionary Poster
The pastor is symbolical of both
home and foreign missions, which aro
strikingly represented. Tho non-1
Christian world is typified by a figure
of a great idol with a group of wor
shippers before it, and mission work
at home by a man of the common peo
ple, standing in a city street. Tho
particular idol which has been taken
as a symbol of idolatrous religion is
the gigantic bronze Buddha at Kaiua
kura, Japan.
This wonderful idol is supposed to
date from the year 12.)2, and the rea
sons and particulars of its erection
have been lost to history. The bronze
figure, sitting uncovered in a grove of
trees, is fifty-four feet high and ninety
seven feet in circumference. It is
made of sheets of bronze, cast separ
ately, brazed together, and finished on
the outside with a chisel. The length
of the face is ei&ht and one-half feet
and the width from ear to ear, seven
ioor. feet nine inches. In the forehead
there is a solid silver buss of the
'weight of thirty pounds. Each eye is
I four feet in length and is made of pure
J gold. The weight of the statue has
ibeen estimated at four hundred nnd
fifty tons, and its vnlue as brozne, at
the prevailing market price, is about
;tl5.00rt. This docs not take into ac
count the silver boss, the idol's fore
head or the iroldcn eves.
On the head are ball-shaped pro
