Sheldon, whose at tempt to run a Topcku newspaper ns Christ would, has attructed widespread attention and is a most interesting per sonality. He might be preaching to great audiences in a rich church, he might be making an Immense fortune simply by collecting royalties on books whose editions ruu into the millions of copies, or he might be on the lecture platform receiving the plaudits of the people of great cities, but he is content to remain pastor of a modest church In Topeka and do his work as he did it before his name became known in oiauy lands. Here Is the story of his career: He was born In Wellsvllle, N. Y., In IN.". While he was still a very small boy bis parents removed to Dakota. Ills father was a minister who fanned weekdays and preached in a little church on Sunday. The Sheldon farm was just outside of Yankton, and there the man who was to write "Robert Hardy's Seven Days," "In His Steps" and "The Crucifixion of Philip Strong" spent most of his boyhood. It was farm work which built tip the broad shoulders and developed the muscular limbs of the man who has become the foremost of religious authors. As a boy Mr. Sheldon went to school In Yankton. lCvcn at that time lie had lng. It was characteristic of the man. He was "getting acquainted." Topeka is the headquarters of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Ft- rail road. Hundreds of men are employed In the railroad shops, and hundred of trainmen make their headquarters there. It was amot'g these that Mr. Sheldon spent much of his time. He obtained an employee's pass from toe railroad company! and. dressed as an employee, he made trips tip and ; down the road in company with the trainmen, learning their ways mid drawing out their Ideas on every con ceivable subject, especially on religion. Alter that he spent a week or two with the physiciani of Topeka, study" lng them. He read their books and visited their patients with them. An other week was spent with the law yers in their offices and in court. In the hard times of 1893 Mr. Shel don received many applications for aid from persons who were out of employ ment He determined to Hud out for himself whether or not employment could be secured by a common laborer, and. putting on a suit of clothes, lie started out In search of It. Every one who ever employed labor received a call from him, but he was invariably turned away with the Information that no laborers were needed. On the fol lowing Sunday he related his experi ences, and the people of Topeka awoke 1 had found some difficulty in making a cow stall that would give satisfaction in keeping the cow clean and save the feed. 1 bad four kinds ami 1 did not like any of them. I saw a description of the Hoard cow stall, concluded thai j 1 would change all my cow stalls anil make them after that plan. A1 Ural I made two for t rial, but I found t lie v dii ' not give satisfaction. The rack, if made j large enough, is loo high for putting in i feed. The eow would step forward about two feel from her position at the ; rack to cat out of the feed box, which. in case of one milking at the time, I Cannot be Cut Out or Removed with Piasters Surgical operations and flesh destroying plasters are useless, painful and dangerous, and beside, never cure Cancer. No matter how often a cancerous sore ts removed another conies at or near the same point, and alwavs in a worse form Does not this prove conclusively that Cancer is a blood disease, and that it is foil v to attempt to cure this deep-seated dangerous Wood trouble by cutting or burning out the sqre, which, after all, is only an outward sign of the disease-a place of exit for the poison ? 1 Cancer runs in families through many generations, and those whose ancestors have been afflicted with it are liable at anv time to lie stricken with the deadly malady. ' Only Blood Diseasos can be Transmitted from One Generation to Another further proof that Cancer is a disease of the blood. To cure a blood disease like this you must cure the entire blood System remove every trace of the poison Nothing cure Cancer effectually and permanently but S. S. S. B. 8.

"And they were Just as good," says his father, "as those he writes now." As his father was nnxious for him to become a minister, the young man went east and entered Phillips acade my, Andover, Mass., where thousands of theological students are trained. Later he took a course nt Brown uni versity ami then retained to the Au Jover Theological seminary. After n summer in Europe he entered the ministry and began preaching in Waterbnry, vt. But the spirit of the vest was In him, so when he received i call to become the pastor of the new ly established Central Congregational Church, in Topeka. in 188S, he gladly accepted it us the oiieuliiK he had been waiting for. Most men would not have thought the outlook an Inviting one. The little 'ongregatlon of 00 hud no-chureh build ing, but held services In a dingy little hall over u grocery store. But he went to work with a will. As a result of hla energetic methods the little hall was soon abandoned and a substantial stone 'hurch erected. The congregation was increased to 300. it was not a rich or fashionable congregation, nor Is It to day, but It Is very much alive. Early In his pastorate Mr. Sheldon hegan to employ strikingly original methods. lie was not satisfied with the kind of work usually done by min isters, lie wanted to know what Ideas the masses of the people had on the subject of Christianity, and he wanted to find out about their dally lives and occupations. With this desire in bis heart he asked his congregation to excuse him from Pastoral work for three months, and his congregation saw little of him ex cept during church services. He was t home scarcely any of the time, but very few people knew what be was do- to the fact that an unusual sort of preacher was among them. Then be wrote his stories those whieh preceded "Iu His Steps" and ' read them from the pulpit, one install I men! at a time. Instead of delivering sermons. He interested his congrega- ' tlon in his plan to regenerate 'Telines- eetown," one of the squalid suburbs of Topeka. Such is the outline of the career which has brought him fame. He Is a hard worker and lives modestly, He has a wife and one child, u hoy of -years. His father also lives near him in ' Topeka and helps him with his work. Although Mr. (Sheldon has written a dozen hooks, he Is known best as the author of "In His Steps." The work was not copyrighted In England, and L!0 publishing houses there are still Is suing editions. It has been translated into French, German, Russian, Italian, j Armenian, Swedish, Norwegian, Span ish and dialects of western Africa. .Mr. Sheldon Is by nature n retiring man ; and almost dreads notoriety. When ! told that the people who reatl his books , would like to know about the author, he said: "That is mere Idle curiosity. I do not wish to be talked about or to I have my church work talked about. The message I have for these people : among whom I live I give ln my ser mons. The message I have for the world at large I give In my books. 1 have nothing more to say." Although be avoids notoriety, he is willing to speak when an opportunity presents Itself to further the cause of religion or humanity. He believes in municipal ownership of public utilities and has studied the subject at home and abroad. He affiliates with no po litical party, but in local campaigns has made speeches in favor of public ownership. He believes tbat water, heat and light plants, together with street car Uses, should be operated by cities. tunatechild was "preserved" milk, that ' is to say, milk in which an unscrupu lous dealer had p it Doractc acid to "keep it sweet." The adulterant made the milk unfermentable, of course, and it iiImi made it absolutely indigestible, Phe milk could not sour. Neither could it be digested by the unfortunate infant. This is a typical ease of the danger ons effects t preservafivei in food. That infant was being murdered by de grees, The man who placed the "pre" servatrve" in t be milk was committing murder, and committing it for the basest of ad base motives, the motive of gain. How should the public rc gard a dealer who would t bus endanger I he lives of his pal ro ns' children? Could any punishment be too revere for a crime of that kind It is to be feared that a thorough Investigation In the towns and lilies would show that very many deaths of infants are directly due to the use of adulterated or "pre served" milk, doctored cream, and other monstrosities. riiniiK'nic IlrreiJ nml Craps. The farmer who is continually changing his breeds of stock or his fa vorite crops is very seldom B money maker. He is apt to find out that he made the change just a little too late. Be sees some one muUiiig money on beef cattle, nnd he abandons dairy farming to breed fat cattle, only to learn that he ought to have bred hogs. He tries hogs, and becomes convinced that sheep ure more profitable. He gives up a crop he knows how to grow to take up some specialty that his neighbor has found a profitable one, and a few years' experience teacheihim how to grow it. but it also teaches him that he could have bought his experi ence much cheaper. We do not mean that n man should not change his breeds of stock, his crops or his meth ods of farming, but he will do well to make his changes gradually, and not part with a good thing every time he thinks anyone else has a better thing.
