That man can prove his ellieicncy
in the sphere where womankind has
been supposed to rule was demon
strated Saturday evening at the ban
quet given by the men of the church
and congregation of the First Metho
dist church for the ladies. The men
uul recosrnized the fact that for sev
eral years the ladies had been drafted
to furnsh the many deliuhtlul ban
quets -riven in the church and ac
cordingly they decided that it was
time that burden was divided ami
the fair ones be allowed to act as
truest s at a function of this kind. In
addition to this it had been whisper
ed that the men would not be able to
produce a real first class banquet
and this served to spur them en to
take entire charge of the affair and
to banish all womankind from the
kitchen as well as from having ary
part in the servinir of the repast. The
general verdict of those who attend
ed was that the men had sprung a
complete surprise on the ladies in
every way and that they were splendid
cooks as well as entertainers.
The tables were set in the pa i '.: -of
the church and presented a pleas
ing picture to the eye with the array
of snowy linen and sparkling silver
while over the secr.e the M'i't glow or

A Iiillious Attack.
When you have a bilious attack your
liver fails to perform its functions,
you become constipated. The food you
eat ferments in your stomach instead
of digesting. This inflames the stom
ach and causes nausea, vomiting and a
terrible headache. Take Chamberlain'
Tablets. They will tone up your liver,
clean out the stomach and you will
soon be as well as ever. They only
cost a quarter.
