EARL WOOD, Prop. BUTTE R...BUTTE R Christian Science Churches The subject of the lesson-sermon In all Churches of Christ, Scientist, for Sunday, December 80, 1945, is "Christian Science." The golden" text Is The ransomed of the Lord shall return, and como to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon thoir heads: they shall obtain Joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away." (Isa. 35:10) Selections from the Bible and from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy comprise the lesson-sermon. Ono of the Bible citations reads: "It ye love me, keep 1 my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even tho Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seoth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for ho dwelleth with you, and shall be ,ln you," (John 14:15-17) From the Christian Soience textbook is the following: "Our Master said, 'But tho Comforter.. .shall teach you all things.' When the Soience of Christianity appears, it will lead you Into all truth." (p. 271) And, "Science Is an emanation of divine Mind, and is alono able to Interpret God aright. It has a sprltual, and not a material origin. It is a divine utterance,—the Comforter which leadetb. into all truth," (p. 127) CETS THE NICKEL T i DON'T* • • says the dairy farmer. With the price of butter increasing five to six cents, the dairy farmer gets no more money. The government simply has ended the roll-back consumer subsidy. / DON'T.. • says the creamery man. The change in price will not mean a greater return for the creamery that manufactures the butter. I DON'T.. . says the distributor. There will be no extra money for those in the wholesale butter trade. / DON'T. . . says the grocer. Margins will remain the same. Grocers, on the average, will earn no more. CARD OF THANKS. We wish to thank all who so kindly helped and expressed sympathy in our recent bereavement. Mr. and Mrs. W, J, Grove, The bost bargaln- They get results! -A Herald Want ad. NOBODY GETS THE NICKEL Here's why. The government has been paying part of the butter bill... passing its expenditures on to the public through taxation. Now. the government is in the process of cutting wartime taxes by five billion dollars or more. In doing so, the government is relieving itself , in part of paying the public's butter bill from the tax parse. The prewar price of butter has been restored. There will be no "real" change in the price of butter. No one is making more money on butter. It's simply a shift from the tax purse to the public purse. In the future you pay directly ,.. not indirectly through taxation. What you pay at the market place you save in taxes. ITS BETTER WITH BUTTER Farmers Co-operative Creamery Co. of Postville
