I hat is the kind of increase in salary
I the minister has - received. His living
' i! expenses have risen i just- as fajst and as far
"as "yours. .
- But - he is paid on the average just 52 cents
more 'per church member than he was paid 34
" years ago.
The Minister Never Fails Yott
Every officer of the' Government with a war
message to deliver appealed to the ministers, first
of all. v; .. , ,
But 80- of the ministers receive less income
than government economists figure as a minimum
" for the support of an average family.
When hospitals need money they enlist the
support of the ministers and receive it.
i But when sickness visits the minister or the
members of his family they must be-treated in a
charity ward. His pay is less than a day laborer's.
8 out of every 10 ministers receive less than
$20 a week about half the pay of a mechanic.
We Pay Him Half the Wages of a Mechanic
And of these pitifully inadequate salaries, how much do
you contribute? Nothing if you are outside the church;
an average of less than" 3c -a day if you are a church
member. ' - . .- ' ' '
All of us share in the benefits of Christian ministers to
the community. They many us; bury us; baptize our
children ; visit us when we are sick. In their hands is the
spiritual training of the youth.
We Are All Profiteers at Their Expense
ParJ of -the Interchurch World program is this a living
wage for every minister of Jesus Christ ; an efficient plant,
an4 a chance to do a big man's job.
If you want better preachers, help to pay the preachers
batter. is the best investment for your community and
for" your children that you can ever make.

health for the past few years and an
examination at Rochester decided
that an operation would be" neces
sary. ..It .is.to,be, JiODed that our old
friend may find relief from his sick
ness and be able to return homo
restored to his former health. ..The
condition of Mr. Frederich however,
is quite serious and will require some
time to fully determine the outcome

"I honestly feel, thirty years
younger since I began taking Tan
lac, and am as happy as a boy," said
M. J. Fahy, a switchman oa the Mis
souri Pacific and living at 2008 T
street, Lincoln, Nebraska.
"I had suffered from rheumatism
in my muscles and joints for so long,"
he continued, "that I was getting to
feel old before my time. My joints
would, swell up something awful
and the muscles all over my body
ached dreadfully most all the time.
At times I was in such agony that
I could hardly raise my hand to but
ton my collar. My liver was nearly
always sluggish, my appetite was
mighty poor and I had such a tired,
worn out feeling all the time that I
often felt discouraged, for it looked
like I would never get any better.
"But Tanlac has made a well man
of me and I began to feel better Soon
after starting on it. My appetite
picked right up, I enjoyed my meal3
and my liver soon got to acting all
right. All the swelling and pains
are now gone, and getting rid of
this rheumatism is the groatest treat
of my life. That tired, worn out
feeling I had before is all gone, too,
I sleep fine and simply feel like a
different man, and there Is nothing
too good for me to say about Tan
lac." Tanlac is sold in Plattsmouth by
F. G. Fricke and Company and the
leading druggist in every town.
