Is Japanese calm, asks The English Outlook, as quoted in The Living Age, after noting the calmness with which that nation has received its succession of victories, "the calm of self-restraint or the calm of pessimism-Asiatic pessimism? There is a third possible explanation. It may be the calm of knowledge -complete, final, satisfied, such calm as that of the elderly Goethe, contemplating the strife of nations as a thing passing, relative, unimportant. This, it seems, would be to argue, or to postulate, the incredible a nation of sages. Yet is it incredible? What of the Greeks, a nation of artists? Or the Jews, a race of religionists? But do sages, in fact, fling themselves on bayonets? Or invent Shimose powder? Or die for an idea? Well, did not Socrates accept the Dikastery's judg- When It Comes Along Don't Let It Get ment with calm? And was not Pericles the founder of the Athenian empire as well as the patron of philosophy? And these are sages of whom it may be said that, though they penetrated, at least with their soul's eye, beyond the frontiers of the knowable, their practical workthe achievements of their sciences, was yet enormous, like that of the Japanese. Many testimonies might be quoted from Japanese history and contemporary phe nomena in support of a proposition that the Japanese possess the quality of mysticism above all other peoples. And this mysticism-what is it but the final verdict, the last resort, of knowledge? Is it not the retreat of knowledge, satisfied of its own inadequacy, if not impossibility? And if the Japanese be children of mysticism, we have the apparition of a people who combine the two capacities that have always made men if not nations formidable-the capacity for repose and the capacity for energy. This is that ideal combination-the combination of the practical and the ideal. It denotes the ability to accomplish everything and yet to esteem this everything as nothing. It commands the whole world and yet holds the whole world lightly and as not worthy to be weighed in the balance with death-the sacrifice of everything-for an idea. This combination makes genius. Sometimes divinity itself has appeared to be composed of its sovereign elements. The Japanese are calm because they know; and even for the same reason they are formidable, since the ideal, which is but the attainment of complete knowledge, necessarily comprehends the practical. In a word, they are practical idealists, terrible in battle yet calm after victory."

Many people cannot attend church, lectures, receptions, places of amusement, or go where there is the least excitement or confusion, without having an attack of headache that mars their pleasure. To those thus afflicted, we wish to say that if they will take one or two of Dr. Miles's Anti-Pain Pills before starting out, or when they notice the first indication of an attack, there will be no further annoyance from this source. These pills stop headache, or any ache or pain in a few minutes. They are a little tablet that is convenient to carry and may be taken at any time with the certainty of being promptly relieved. They leave no after-effects, as they contain no opium, morphine, or other dangerous drugs, but cure by their soothing influence upon the nerves. Your druggist sells them, and will return your money if the first package fails to benefit. Twenty-five doses 25 cents. Never sold in bulk.

THIS, according to The Liverpool Post, is a Bombay native student's essay on the horse: "The horse is a very noble quadruped, but when he is angry he will not do so. He is ridden on the spinal cord by the bridle, and sadly the driver places his foots on the stirrup, and divides his lower limbs across the saddle, and drives his animal to the meadow. He has a long mouth, and his head is attached to the trunk by a long protuberance called the neck. He has four legs, two are in the front side and two are afterward. These are the weapons or which he runs, he also defends himself by extending those in the rear in a par allel direction toward his foe, but this he does only when in a vexatious mood. His fooding is generally grasses and grains. He is also useful to take on his back a man or woman as well as some cargo. He has power to run as fast as he could. He has got no sleep at night time, and always standing awaken. Also there are horses of short sizes. They do the same as the others are generally doing. There is no animal like the horse; no sooner they see their guardian or master they always crying for fooding, but it is always at the morning time. They have got tail, but not so long as the cow and other such like similar animals."

Writing of the Taj Mahal, the worldfamed tomb erected by Shah Jahan to his beloved, a committee of the New York North Side Board of Trade, which investigating foreign parks has been proach and perfect setting force upon and parkways, says: "Unrivalled apthe New Yorker an unwilling comparison with the meagre surroundings of the Grant Tomb, and perhaps it may be said that no greater similarity and no greater contrast exist in the world than between these monuments, so nearly alike in size and general shape, both standing on high banks overlooking rivers, the Jumma and the Hudson, one surrounded by a luxuriant and perfectly kept garden, the other springing without approach or entourage from a bare grass plot approached by asphalt walks bordered by thin granite curbs."


"I really feel that it is hardly possible to say too much in favor of Grape-Nuts as a health food," writes a Chicago


"For nine or ten years I had suffered from indigestion and chronic constipation, caused by the continued use of coffee and rich, heavy, greasy foods. My ailments made my life so wretched that I was eager to try anything that held out a promise of help. And that is how I happened to buy a package of GrapeNuts food last spring.

"That ended my experiments. For in Grape-Nuts I found exactly what I wanted and needed. From the day I began to use it I noticed an improvement and in a very few weeks I found my health completely restored. My digestive apparatus now works perfectly and my chronic constipation has been entirely relieved. I have gained in weight materially, and life is a very pleasant thing to me so long as I use. Grape-Nuts once or twice a day. I have found by experiment that if I leave it off for a few days my health suffers.

The Organ Voluntary.

Whoever stops in church long enough to hear the end of the outgoing voluntary? Very few, and yet a great deal of good music is thus half heard, even when it is heard at all. It seems a pity that so many capable organists should Sunday after Sunday play so much excellent music to empty pews, or waste their sweetness on the desert air of a church which people are quitting with as much haste as is decent under the circumstances. A voluntary, be it good, bad, or indifferent, cannot be heard to advantage by a crowd of people on the move, and who, if not engaged on whispered nothings, are by habit so accustomed to hearing the organ going while they are leaving the church that the last thing in the world they think about is to take any notice of what the organ is playing. It would be much better in every way, much more respectful to the composer (not to mention the interpreter), if the congregation were to sit till the voluntary is over, regarding it as an integral part of the service, which it virtually is when the organist has an eye to the fitness of things. It would be a vast improvement on the present state of things-more seemly, more reverent and profitable-if it were the custom to "sit out" the voluntary; and a silent exit would be much better than one accompanied by a loud "Postludium,' which is but too often a mere cover for conversation. Cannot someone set the fashion in this respect, and teach thoughtless people that some of the finest music ever composed is worthy of better treatment than to be used simply to make a noise, for which people would not even feel thankful if it did not cover up conversation?


However, there is another side to the question. An organist never knows but there may be one or two people in the congregation who can understand good music, who appreciate his efforts to render that music well, and who partake with eager enjoyment of the feast provided for them. An organist of our acquaintance met recently with an encouraging proof that voluntaries are not thrown away upon everybody, and that pearls are not always cast before those who turn again and rend him who casts them. This organist played on one occasion Bach's Toccata in D minor, and saw to his astonishment that the church was not empty when he had finished. On reaching the door he found a wellknown member of the congregation waiting for him-one, by the way, whom the organist had not suspected of having any great store of musical knowledge. "Excuse me, Mr. -, but was not that piece by Bach?" On receiving an affirmative reply, he said, "I thought so. I am very fond of Bach's music and hope you will play some more of it." This is encouragement of a sensible sort; and that organist assures us that, after thirty years' experience, he has concluded that life is worth living. A famous divine lecturing to students for the ministry on preaching, told them to look for the dullest face in the congregation, and preach to that one. We advise organists to find out the most cultivated musician in the congregation, and play for him. If people as a body. are so careless as not to listen to a good voluntary, or so hurried that they will not spare five minutes for that purpose,

the organist may feel pretty sure that somebody is present who is able to appreciate good music, well played, and into whose mind the good thoughts uttered by the player are sure to enter. But it is a painful thing to reflect upon, that of the hundreds of thousands of church-goers scarcely one in ten thousand either knows or cares two straws about the organ voluntary!

"The Loves of Great Composers," by Gustav Kobbe. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell & Co.

This is an unusually interesting book. It gives an account of the love episodes in the lives of the great composers which have been scantily dealt with in biographies. The composers treated of are Mozart and his Constance; Beethoven and his "Immortal Beloved"; Mendelssohn and his Cecile; Chopin and the Countess Delphine Potocko; the Schumanns; Franz Liszt and his Carolyne; and Wagner and Cosima. It is scarcely necessary to say tha all these are of intense interest to the music-lover, and Mr. Kobbe's work is likely to find a large circle of readers.

On Saturday afternoon Mr. Ralph Kinder gave the first of the sixth annual series of free Organ Recitals in the Church of the Holy Trinity, Philadelphia, assisted by Mr. Charlton Lewis Murphy, violinist. The numbers were Bach's Toccato in F; Ferrata's Nocturne in A flat; Serenade, by R. Strauss; Kinder's Intermezzo in G; Wagner's Overture to Die Meistersinger. Two adagio movements by Mozart and Correlli for the violin.

On the Second Sunday after the Epiphany the choir of the Church of the Epiphany, Chicago, about sixty-five men and boys, went to the Settlement known as "Chicago Commons," the leader of which is Dr. Graham Taylor, a professor in the Congregational Seminary in Chicago, and sang a number of solos and choruses from "The Messiah," it being the occasion of the "Pleasant Sunday Afternoon" at this Settlement.

A person may go forty days without solid food and survive; can exist seven days, sometimes more, without food and water, but can drag through seven days at most without sleep. The cravings of nature for that period of unconsciousness and complete relaxation are so great that this is the limit of endurance, and shows the importance of profound, restful sleep. The ability to sleep depends upon the condition of the nerves. When they become weak, worn out, excitable, from over-work, worry, grief or mental exhaustion, their turbulent condition prevents that total relaxation that induces sleep; headache, neuralgia, backache, irritability, loss of appetite, indigestion, are also conditions of nerve exhaustion. To quiet this disturbance and replenish hausted nerve force, take Dr. Miles's Restorative Nervine, the prescription of an eminent nerve specialist. It soothes the irritated nerves and gives them strength and vigor. In this way it goes right to the bottom of all nervous troubles and removes the cause.

DUE SEPT. 1, 1930

Optional for payment at 105 and interest January 1, 1915, or any interest date thereafter

These bonds, issued to the amount of $700,000, are secured by a first mortgage on a very valuable electric light and power plant located in the City of Topeka, Kansas. This Company does all the commercial and residential electric light and power business in the city, and operates under a liberal thirty-year franchise. The Company is successor to the Edison Electric Illuminating Company, which has been in successful operation for twenty years and paid 6% dividends on its stock for that period. There is a very liberal sinking fund which will retire $15,000 of the bonds annually from January, 1910 to 1930 inclusive, $315,000 of bonds being retired by this means at 105 and interest. The present net earnings are at the rate of over twice the interest on the bonds, and upon completion of improvements and extensions now under way, the earnings

should show a very large increase. Having sold about $600,000 of these bonds, we offer the balance, subject to prior sale, at 100 and interest, yielding 5%.

Special circular and other data will be furnished upon request.
