The Men's Society of the First
Presbyterian church gave a dinner
last Friday night at the Armory
Hall. About 200 members of the
church, and those who are mem
bers of the congregation without
membership in the church, were
present. It is needless to say
that the occasion was both enter
taining and profitable. Ihe feast
of edibles was all one could desire,
which, of dourBe, was to have been
expected ai it was prepared and
served under the direction of the
ladies of the church. But there
was another side to the affair,
which, to use a hackneyed phrase,
was a feast of reason and a flow of
soul. A number of good speakers
made brief addressess upon vari
ous phases! of church work and
some very interesting and helpful
ideas were presented. The follow
ing list of speekers and their sub
jects will serve to convince the
the public that it was good to be
there, more especially so when it
is stated that Hon. Theo. F.

it might oe stated in tnis con
nection that the idea of this Men's
Sooiety was originated by the pas
tor of the church, Rev. Byron
Clark. Its purpose is to unite the
men of the church in a closer
brotherhood and to inspire each
one- with enthusiam in church
work. It has already accomplished
a great good and there will un
doubtedlv be a most gratifying
harvest in the future.

While in the city Saturday he told
us of a lot of wheat on his place
which had headed and was cut
down Saturday, March 27th. This
is rather early for wheat to head.
Last Thursday was general
clean-up day over the city. Citi
zens in all parts of town went to
work with a vim and in a few
hours there was a marked change
for the better in the appearance of
things . It is very commendable
for citizens to get together at some
special time to clean up, but it
would serve a better purpolse if all
would do a little all along this
line each day. The latter would
be much lighter and the oity
'would be clean all the time.

to eat and digest. This is the universal
testimony, coming from all parts of the

loffs of appetite und disturbed digestion.
The beneficial Influence of Peruna on
catarrh completely restores the appe
tite in such cases.
To prod the digestive organs with
medicines that are merely stimulants is
a poor way to remedy such cases.

agency of Peruna, which has
cured me effectually and restored

"An aunt wrote me that she was tak

bought a bottle, although I. disliked to
take patent medicines.
"However, I found Peruna very agree
able to take, and effective, as I felt bet
