THIRTY-EIGHTH YEAR. FLORA', ILLINOIS, FRIDAY,.APRJ 1908. Lawns i A I^awn, to loo'ic right, must have the grass kept al t^e proper height. None of us like to mow grass with a bum lawn mower. Buy a "Keen Kutter," a mower which is guaranteed to cut grass and cut it easy.' Your wife or child can use one of these mowers and that's'a good thing for the man of the house. Accurate, smooth running with simple adjustment. Five Revolving Knives on Nigh Wheel Pattern. Close and continuous cut. Lower Rocking Atjjustment. Convenient, simple, positive Steel Pin Ratchet: never fails to cut; will not wear out. Steel Bushed Reel Cog. Large bearing, lessening wear on pinion and axle. All Parts Mechan¬ ically Accurate insuring minimum wear and Easy Running. Will cut gnaa 7 inches high. So llgrbt rnnnlnt that year "yountest" can now mow the lairli - withoat help. Kitll la/fnR Mowers are faat catting and easy running because of the triple gear and th* fine ball bearings. ¦**- The v Store J. BOWMAN P. S. Our line of "Keen Kutter" Grass Catchers and K. K.

This wealc all the bnsiness honses on North Avenna and on Uaia street cloia at 7 p. m, or |earlier, on ac¬ connt of the meetings. Up to Wednes¬ day morning there hnd been 185 conver sions besides the renewal of many christians whose love and zeal bad waned. Tbe daily attendance of tbe meetings at22:80 p. m. bas been between I.V) and 300. Tbere bave been no ser¬ vices without conversions. Wednesday evening, April 1, Bro. Bnrke preached on "I have called and ye bava refused." Thnrsdsy nigbt on "The way of the traatigressor is bard." These trameud- oas appeals were replete with lUastra- tiona drawn from the speaker's varied expfriances in life. Friday bight the sabject was -Abhor that which is evil, cleave to tbat which is good." The evil tendsnciet of some popal'ar indulgences were shown in a way that few who beari) can everfforget. There weie nine conversions. Satarday nigbt the text was "Ba not [deceived, Ood is not mocked; whataoevera msn sowetbthat shtM he also reap." This is traa of whatever kind of seed we sow. Wa may sow enconragemeut.

Many wlli doubt, leas be better husbands, wives, and par¬ ents because of tbis sermon. He .\ • pllril the text to men's relations with each ether. This psrt of the sermon has already boroa some rich froil in tbe wiping ont of old scores. At 2:80 Bro. Barke spoke to tbe men ou "Saved at lart." It dstailed bis own experience in getting home to God. Tba appeal waa one of nnnsual power and toaebed all hearts. At (be eame honr Bro. Hobbs spoke to the women at the PresbyteriaD church.
