: The SecoBtl: Temptation, f
The nearest approach to the
temptation of Christ by the devil
that the world has ever seen per
haps, is pictured in the diabolical
proposal of Satan's strongest
agent in' the jrorld, ; the liquor"
power to" Christ's servants, the
ministers of the gospel, in a letter
sent to all preachers throughout
the country a few days ago. It
takes these men of God up on the
mountan, as it were, "shows
them all the kingdoms of the
world, and asks them to join wit.h
the liquor power in taking and
holding these kingdoms for Satan
This letter sets forth the most
sacreligious and blasphemers
views of the attitude of God and
Christ toward this vile, damning
stuff that iscaosing such untold
misery'and woe on earth and that
is dragging so many millions of
souls to" an-eWnal hell. These
emissaries of the devil have the
bold effrontery to ask God's min
isters fo join with them in perpet
uating this awfnl curse on the
human race a "National Model
Restriction License." The pro
posal is too disgusting, too horri
ble to considet.for a moment.
There is one thing, however, it
hoped this preposterous offer
will accomplish, and that is to 6tt
he Ceri3tian people of our land
thinking. When the Saviour was
ed up into tne mountains his
Arch-enemy knew that he was
very weak from fasting. Is it not
very probable that this enemy of
souls, through his emissaries, sees

ministers hesitate to tackle this
hydra-headed monster, liquor

members ally themselves with the

see how her press stands almost
silent, utteriug scarcely a word
against this evil? Christians, it
it any wonder these emissaries of
Satan are bold? 0, that the
church might put off its lethargy

Since 1894 I have been afflicted with Chronic Diarrhoea. About six
months ago I commenced using your Concentrated Iron and Alum Water
with the most wonderful and satisfactory results. For three or four years
past I have been deprived of the privilege of visiting friends or going to
church, as my trouble kept me in constant apprehension having lost almost
entirely the control of my Jhowela ; but now I am happy to state that, after
using about a half dozen bottles of your remedy I am entirely cured, not
having used any for the last four months. I can confidently and most gladly
recommend your remedy for Chronic Diarrhoea. ,

I have used and prescribed waters'from several Iron and Alum Springs,

goes to make the ideal alterative, strengthener, appetizer and restorative.
It is at once & fine tonic and flesh-builder. Have advised several -recently
tq try it, and always with fine and quick results. InJanuary I had a bottle
sent from one of your dealers to a lady, with the understanding that if it
did not at once improve her digestive apparatus, Iould pay thef 1.00 myself.
She not only willingly paid the bill, but used a part of one-half dozen more
