SOME STATISTICS OF THE CHURCH
Membership of Oae to Every Forty la
Population In Iowa aad Congre
gation to Every Oae 'Hundred
anil Fifty Square Miles.
About 100 persons wers present at the
opening session last night of the convention
of the Christian church cf the Southwest
district of Iowa at the Christian tabernacle.
The devotional exercises were led by Dr.
R. O. Williams of this city and addresses
were delivered by J. W. Walters, presi
dent of the district organization; O. W.
Thomson of Woodbine and J. H. Wright of
Shenandoah. Mr. Walters gave these In
teresting statistics In his address:
The Iowa Christian Convention Is the
only society of the Church of Christ doing
evangelistic work In the state of Iowa. In
the central district, comprising seven
counties, there Is one congregation to
every fifty-five square miles and 2.S48 pop
ulation. In the southwest district, com
prising nix counties, there is one congre
gation to every eighty square miles ind
3,H population. The southeast district,
comprising twenty-two counties, has one
congregation to each elglitv-two square
miles and 4.232 population. The northwest
district, comprising twenty-nine counties,
has a conurbation to every 212 square
miles and fi.82t population, and the north
east district, comprising twenty-five coun
ties, has a congregation to every 224 square
miles and 8,7(6 population.
The Christian church has a membership
In Iowa of one to every forty population,
and a congregation to every 128 square
miles of territory and every 6.WW of pop
ulation. There are thirty-four county seats
and 1.600 towns and poatofTlces which have
no Church of Christ; fourteen counties
which have no such church, -eleven coun
ties having only one and fourteen coun
ties having only two such churches each.
Mr. Wright took as the subject of his ad
dress "Iowa for Christ." He said that he
believed In a feelng of state pride. There
were three great dangers threatening the
state the liquor traffic, desecration of the
Sabbath and a growing tendency to lower
the standard of the highest and beat In
family life. He dwelt on the social ques
tion and paid a compliment to the Catho
lic church for the strictness with which It
maintained family relations and for Its
stand on behalf of temperance, but claimed
that It had not yet risen to the ldenl of
sacredness of the Lord's day. The Chris
tian church, he asserted, was the only
church offering rational ground for Chris
tian unity, namely, adherence to the
scriptures as its only creed.
Mr. Thompson' spoke on "The Bible
School" and urged the necessity of earnest
teaching. Teachers who do not want to
teach, be said, should not be required to
do so. Far better, he said, to double the
size of the classes than retain teachers
who act as such simply because they have
The program today, will be In charge of
the members of the Christian Woman's
Board of Missions. Among . the speakers
will be Miss Florence Mills of Des Moines,
the foreign missionary of this district, who
will leave In the early fall for India. Three
sessions will bo held, the morning session
beginning at 9 o'clock, the afternoon ses
sion at 1:45 and the evening, session at
7:45 o'clock. Mrs. h! M. PIckelt of Omaha
will speak at the evening session.

DELAY IN TELEPHONE MATTER
Council Vnable to Agree and Both
Ordinances Sent Back to Com
mittee. The city council last night, after discuss
ing the ordinances of the Interstate and
Council Bluffs Independent Telephone com
panies, was unable to reach any conclusion
and th ordinances were again referred
back to the committee of the whole for
further Investigation and consideration.
This action was mainly due to Attorney
Ttnley of the Council Bluffs company sug
gesting several sections to be Incorporated
In the ordinance submitted by his com
pany. Aldermen ixugee and McDonald
stated they were of the opinion that these
amendments contained "considerable food
for thought" and that nothing would be
lost by postponing action for another week.
On motion of Lougee, seconded by Mc
Donald, both ordinances went to the com
mittee of the whole.
When the report of the committee of the
whole recommending that the council ap
prove the ordinance of the Interstate com
pany and sumblt It to the vote of the peo
ple was read Alderman Louge suggested
several amendments. One ' Changed the
form of the section requiring the company
to deposit $5,000, to be forfeited td the city
In the event of the company failing to In
stall and have ia operation Us plant within
the prescribed time. . As amended It pro
vides that the company' shall pay to ths
city $5,000 within. Ave days after the pass
age of ths ordinance and that the city
shall pay to the company a like amount
on the completion of the Installation of the
system within ten days after the council
shall pass a resolution authorizing such
Another amendment ' provided that It
shall take a three-fourths vote Instead of
a majority vote to grant the company the
privilege to assign any of Its rights under
the franchise. Another amendment pre
scribes that the company must Jllo Its ac
ceptance of the ordinance within ten days
of the passage of same Instead of thirty
days, as before provided.
Attorney Ttnley, on behalf of the Coun
cil Bluffs Independent company, offered to
amend Its ordinance so as to change ths
term of the franchise from, thirty-five to
twenty-five years. He also offered to glvs
the city S per cent yearly of the company's
gross revenue and supply the city depart
ments with free telephones, or to give 1
per cent of Its gross revenue and furnish
tba schools with six free telephones and
all others aa the council might direct for
the use of the schools at a rate not to ex
ceed one-halt the regular rate.' Mr. Tin
ley, however, refused on behalf of the
company to maks a cash deposit to be for
feited In case the company failed to Install
Its plsnt within the two years, as provided
In the ordlnsnce. He ststed that the busi
ness men back of the company were new
in ths telephone business and being un
aware whether thoy. could . successfully
carry out what they planned. In this re
spect they would not risk sny $5,000. Ho
claimed It was not a business proposition
to ask them to maks such a deposit on
such conditions. .
Attorney Wadswortb, for ths Interstats
company, took advantage of this to state
that hla company Intended. ' business and
that It was willing to deposit $.?,000 as a
guaranty of Its good Intentions, provided
that the city wQuld pay It .J per rent on

Comments of the Iowa Press.
Keokuk Gat City: Iowa capitalists are
making extensive purchases of coal lnnds
In remote Colorado. It la to be regretted
that more of them do not Invest In manu
facturing at home. There Is money In it
for them and Increased prosperity for the
state but the charm of the Somewhere
Klse Is evidently difficult to resist.
Cedar Rapids Republican: If Archbishop
Keane should be promoted to be successor
to the late Archbishop Corrlgan tt would
be another promotion for another Iowa
man, for Archbishop Keane has been in
the state long enough to be called an
Iowa man. The liquor men of Dubuque
would probably be perfectly willing to
sacrifice the archbishop of Dubuque.
Decorah Public Opinion: Mr. Titus has
a queer kind of farm on his residence lots
in West I'nion. It is a ginseng bed about
thirty feet square, and covered so as to
shade the plants. Mr. Titus haa cultivated
the roots for three yeara. He tells us that
the root should be five yeara old before it
la gathered. Each root when matured and
dried should weigh eight ounces, and at the
present prices It Is worth from to 110
per pound. There are 6X planta In Mr.
Titus' bed, and he expects them to return
him good money In a few years.
Burlington Hawkeye: Information reaches
Des Moines from Washington that K W.
Clayton is thinking of bring a candidate

ber of the committee at I'edar Rapids last

CWaterloo Reporter: The Keokuk Gate
City is rooting for rooters to root for Keo
kuk. A band of rooters that will root
with energy, effect and Intelligence Is a
mighty handy force to have around when
there Is something that needs doing. As
there lit always plenty to appeal for ac
tivity in promoting a city's progress a
band of rooters can find plenty of work to
do The Reporter likes the Idea of rooters
for the home town and for the tate. A
good word whenever opiortunily offers
and faithful efTurt all the time is the price
that any community or commonwealth
will havt to pay at any time for the privi
lege of getting ahead. The first requisite
for memberahlp in the rooters' club should
be. "If you can't boont, don't knock."
Keokuk Gate City: A southern Iowa
minister tells a story of a little boy he
knew on the frontier, who belonged to a
family who had trained him to believe In
the deep water form of baptism, and was
experimenting with the household cat and
a bucket of water. The animal evidently
did not believe In Immersion, for she re
sisted, bit and scratched, until Hnally the
little boy, with his hands covered with
scratches and with tears In hla eyes, gave
up the effort to effect the regeneration of
the cat. "Dog-gone you." he cried, "go
and be an Episcopal cat If you want to."

Most everything that can possibly be the matter with
a person is due to bad blood conditions, and these are in
turn due to bad liver and kidneys.
If your blood is puro, rich and plentiful, disease sim
ply can't get into your system. Tho troublo is, though,
that people neglect a lazy liver and diseased kidneys,
and the moment they fail to do their work properly tho
impurities which they are intended to get rid of pass
into the blood ; then the trouble commences.
: Women with thin, poisoned blood suffer from all
sorts of diseases peculiar to the sex, and men havo
rheumatism, scrofula and other diseases, as well as get
ting into a condition so weak and enfeebled that they
are scarcely able to attend to their usual business.
All this can bo avoided by keeping the blood pure and
rich by the use of Smith's Green Mountain .Renovator.
This medicine doesn't wasto a moment's time, but goes
right to the spot where the troublo is, and, as its name
indicates, renovates and cleanses until everything is
working in perfect order, and you are on the high road
to health and strength again.
This modicine is made just as it has been made for
many years from the roots and herbs of the Vermont
Mountains. Nature intended these roots and herbs for
just the purpose we put them to in this medicine, and
when you follow Nature's leading, you can't go wrong.
This medicine has always been highly popular in its
otc n home, although it was not advertised. Now every
body can get it. Its present owners are distributing it
all over the country, and we are the sole agents here.
Take it in the spring as a matter of precaution,
because everybody needs its cleansing powers then
Take it all the year 'round when you don't feel right,
and it will do you good.
If 'you find that it doesn't, you are always welcome tc
