St Louis, Mo., Oct. 16. Whether ne
gro clcreymeu shall have a voice in-the
affairs of the Protestant Episcopal
church of America, was debated in the
house of deputies today. A hot fight on
this yesterday was expected and deio
iratea looked for a prolonged debate.
The important report of the joint
commission on business methods in the
church will come up some time this
week and' there are Borne indications it
might be called to a hearing late to
day. The report is expected to arraign
the lack of business methods in the
handling of church funds.
There was much comment today a
mong the bishops and deputies as to
uosaible action on the proposed short
ening of the Lord's prayer, the short
ening of the ten commandments and
the changing of the marriage ceremony
of the church. The pros and cons were
busy getting in their prc-debate cam
paigning. Reunions and social meetings of var
ious auxiliary associations of the church
were the order of the day among those
not members of either houso.

hardly do my work.
I was very nervous

where I could not do

sister told my husband if he did not do
something for me I would not last long
and told him to get your medicine. So he
got Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com

three doses I began to improve. I con
