GOOD WORK' FOR SICK WOMEN 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 ually the use of them spread over the 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 office, at Lynn, Mass., proving that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound is an article of great merit as shown by the results it produces. Anamosa.Iowa. "When I began tak ing Lydia E.

Joiiffl mu thnt irpoits of MISS WILLIAMS IS PASTOR OF CHURCH 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."

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.
