An Attack of Grip
Always Leaves Kidneys
In Weakened Condition
Doctors in all parts of the country have
been kept busy with the epidemic of grip
which has visited so many homes. The
symptoms of grip this year are often very
distressing and leave the system in a run
down condition, particularly the kidneys
which seem 4o suffer most, as almost every
victim complains of lame back and urin

dangerous kidney troubles. Druggists
report a large sale on Dr. Kilmer's

soon heals and strengthens the kidneys
after an attack of grip. Swamp-Root is
a great kidney, liver and bladder remedy,
and, being an herbal compound, has a
gentle healing effect on the kidneys,
which is almost immediately noticed in
most cases by those who try it. Dr.

LESSON FOR MARCH 11
JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE.
LESSON TEXT John 6:24-37
GOLDEN TEXT Jesus said unto them,
I am the bread of life. John 6:35.
Following the feeding of the five
thousand, Jesus saw the design of the
multitude (v. 15), and separated him
self unto prayer. Fallowing that com
munion, the disciples went over the
sea toward the City of Capernaum
(v. 17), but in his supernatural power
he followed them, walking upon the
water (v. 10). Midway he entered
their ship, and immediately they
reached the land toward which they
had been striving (v. 21 ; Mk. 0:48-49).
The next day (John 6:22) the people
who at this period were following him
In such great multitudes, took steps to
reach him. Finding that he was not
at their side of the lake, they took
boats and came to Capernaum, "seek
ing for Jesus" (v. 24). We read that
the common people heard him gladly.
These people wanted the comradship
of Jesus, and the longest bread line in
the world today is that of hungry
hearted men. The question is, are we
willing to give them the loaves of
I. Bread Which Perisheth (vv. 23
24). "If you think you will always
get the loaves and fishes simply be
cause you have followed the Lord, you
have handed yourself a goldbrick."
Dr. Griffin Bull. Most of us will go
further for victuals than we will for a
vision. When the people found Jesus
(v. 25) they rather reprimanded him
for leaving them, when the fact of the
matter was that he was not beholden
to them in any sense whatsoever. It
looks very well for these people to be
"seeking Jesus," but they were seek
ing the wrong thing (v. 2G). It was
not really Jesus himself they wanted,
but the loaves and the fishes. It was
not the "sign" as indicating his divine
character that drew them, but simply
the wonder as indicated by the fact
that they expected a constant supply
of bread, nor did they see in that
bread the sign but only the bread.
Salvation is the free gift of God
apart from works. Nevertheless he
commands the exercise of will. "This
is the work of God that ye believe on
him whom he hath sent" (v. 29). This
Is not inconsistent with I Cor. 12:3,
1. c, "No man can say that Jesus is the
Lord but by the Holy Ghost." Like
the two blades of a pair of shears, the
executive act of my will in believing
on Jesus is met by the regenerating en
ergy of God's spirit making me a son
The Jews demanded a sign as a con
dition of believing on him, when he,
himself, was the greatest of all signs
(v. 3G). They sought to enforce their
demands by reference to Moses and
the manna, but Jesus showed them
that the manna was a type of "the
(true) bread of God." The character
istics of this bread are: (1) It comes
down from heaven ; (2) It giveth life
unto the world. Jesus' hearers did not
understand what he meant, and ex
claimed : "Evermore give us this
bread." Jesus was trying to impress
upon Lis hearers the same diligence In
heavenly matters as in the pursuit of
III. The Everlasting Bread (vv. 35
87). Misunderstanding his teaching
(v. 34) Jesus said unto them plainly :
"I am the bread of life," meaning that
he is the true bread of God. He Is
not only the giver of the bread of life,
but he, himself, is the Bread of Life.
As bread will satisfy the needs of the
physical body, giving strength, vital
ity and energy, so he will supply the
needs Of the soul. He will satisfy the
deep hunger and longing which is the
evidence of need, and he will also sat
isfy the thirst which is the more In
tense desire the spiritual craving of
the soul. Jesus ministers to the never
failing strength of all who come to
him, and who believe on him. Coming
to him is seeking help and blessing
from him. Believing on him is the ab
solute abandonment of self to him.
bThls multitude had actually seen the
living bread (v. 30), yet they believed
not because they were so occupied
with the material and unreal things of
Today we find men so taken up with
the material and unnreal that they
neither appreciate nor believe upon the
true bread which has been sent down
from God out of heaven. Not all will
come to him (John o:24), but anyone
can prove that he belongs to the elect
of God and the company of the Father
by coming to Jesus (v. 37). If any
man does come, he will be received.
These words of Jesus are very posi
tive, "I will in no wise cast him but."
Jesus, the One who raises the dead,
Is therefore co-equal with God. Note
the remainder of this chapter: "I will
raise him up at the last day" (v. 40) ;
"He that believeth on me hath ever
lasting life" (v. 47) ; "I am the bread
of life" (v. 48) ; "Except ye eat the
flesh of the Son of man, ye have no life
in you" (v. 53) ; "Whoso eateth my
flesh hath eternal life" (. 54) ; "For my
flesh Is meat Indeed" (v. 55) ; "He that
eateth my flesh dwelleth in me and I
in him" (v. 50) ; "He that eateth me,
even he shall live by me" (v. 57).
This is symbolical. It Is true, but It
Is very real.

Diet. Exercise or Death!
, An eminent medical authority writes
that most of our city folks die of a thick
ening of the arteries or of kidney dis
ease. The kidneys become clogged and
do not filter the poisons from the blood,
and one trouble follows another, high
blood pressure damages the heart, arteries
and kidneys. Usually its danger signals
are backache, pain here or there, swollen
feet or ankles, rheumatic twinges or
spots appearing before the eyes.
"The veiy best remedy is this: Eat
meat but once a day, or not at all. Plenty
of outdoor exercise, and drink pure
water frequently. Before meals take a
little Anuric, the great uric acid neu
tralizer that is easily obtained at the
drug store. When you. have dizziness,
chills or sweating, worry, or dragging
pains in back, try this wonderful enemy
to uric acid, which Dr. Pierce of Buffalo,
