These meetings are very beneficial
to m din -rs, and all others who arty

No class of christian workers has
more fu'ly realized the- reward ot'

In the early days of its existence,

classes of citizens.

It is predicted by those who are a
position to know whereof they speak
that this campaign, whether success-

Perhaps no city in the nation suf-
fers so much from the liquor trafile
as does Chicago, and her liberation
from this curse would mean much to
other countries than our own. It
would arouse in them a mighty ef-
