Perhaps at times you have a pain in the back, and so much misery that for three or four days life is a burden. You know when to expect these attacks, and you have a fearful dread of them. If you will go to your druggist and procure a package of Dr. Miles's Anti-Pain Pills, and begin taking them according to directions, on the first approach of an attack, you will find such great relief that you will wonder now you ever got along without them. This is the experience of thousands. If it is not yours tell your druggist, and he will return your money. The most important feature is that Dr. Miles's Anti-Pain Pills are harmiess, containing no opium other dangerous drugs. They stop pain by soothing the nerves.

"Harry asked for you," said Oora. "He recognized your picture-the one that used to hang in his room when he was a Come," and she drew her father toward the French windows. This time he was eager to be gone. Susan attempted to follow, but Oora sharply motioned her to remain, and she shrank back into the shadow while their father stumbled hastily over the threshold and, led by Oora, passed along the veranda to a skillion room that was never used, for it had Harry's things in it. Every one in the parlor heard the door open softly-heard the muffled cry, "My son! my son!" and heard the queer, broken, husky response
like the voice of some wounded creature
that had found rest. And then the door
shut, and Oora stole back along the ver-
Brian had drawn Susan's arm within his own and led her up to Wolfe.
"You wont refuse to shake hands now," he said cheerily. "We are cousins, you know, Jem. Let me be the first to tell our kind friends here who you really are. They ought to know. But perhaps you haven't heard?"
"About Uncle Ellan and poor Linne?" Wolfe held out both hands warmly. "Yes, I saw it in the papers, but as things were, I could scarcely put forward my claim. Now," and he turned tenderly to Oora, "I have someone else to consider who will make it well worth my while to do so."
Brian was looking at Susan and in his mind was the thought that she would have made a fairer Countess of Ellan. But any shadow of constraint was dissipated by little Polly, who had been solemnly watching the progress of affairs from half-caste Charlotte's arms. Now she clapped her hands to claim attention:
"I b'lieve mine been get 'im plenty brother belonging to me," she remarked.
A new serial, "The Cattle-Baron's Daughter," by Harold Bindloss, will begin next week.

This is one of the latest of the John Lane Company's excellent series of musical biographies, and also one of the best. Grieg's admirers are found wherever there are musicians, be they professionals or amateurs. It is strange that no book regarding the composer's life and work has yet appeared, in English or German. There is Closson's short essay, also a biography in Norwegian, but the first named is a mere sketch, and very few (Continued on page 858, third column.)

(Continued from page 857.) musicians read Norwegian, hence the volume under notice will be very acceptable. The author has a true admiration for the subject of his book, and has given a delightful, chatty biography, as well as a perfectly satisfactory analysis of Grieg's chief compositions. The letters of the composer, too, find a place in the book, and are probably the only ones published. Grieg is the most picturesque and poetic figure in the musical world of to-day, and it seems remarkable that so little is known about his daily life and artistic work.
It is certain that no writer could be found who would do more justice to the composer than Mr. Finck. Perhaps he is at times a little too enthusiastic, as, for instance, his statement that Grieg is in the very front of modern composers, and this rank he is "absolutely convinced future generations will give him." We all acknowledge that Grieg is a truly unique composer, and one that imbues his work with a distinct flavor, but we doubt if all will acknowledge that "from every point of view that interests the music lover, Grieg is one of the most original geniuses in the musical world of the present or past." It is undeniable that Grieg has the true Norwegian blood, although it has been claimed that his ancestors of even two generations ago were decidedly Scotch -at all events his name belongs to Scotland. But he has brought it about, as Bjornson says, that Norwegian life and Norwegian moods have entered into every music-room in the whole world. His music is the best antidote to German classicism, and Dr. Mason remarks that "it is the healthy instinct of a man who has a message to deliver, and seeks for it the most natural means of expression.
The biographical part of the book is extremely interesting. His first meeting with Gade is entertainingly described. His being told "to go home and compose a symphony," and how he accomplished the work in a fortnight and laid the foundation of the Scandinavian school is of intense interest. The meeting with Liszt and the performance of the beautiful F major violin sonata is told with true artistic feeling, and is one of the most enjoyable portions of a very charming book. Many excellent illustrations are given, and the little work is one which those who love Grieg cannot afford to miss.
To the Music Editor of THE CHURCHMAN: I am sure every church musician who is concerned with the vexed problem of psalm singing will be interested to know of our experience with the new Southwark Psalter.
When we commenced the study of this remarkable work considerable difficulty was anticipated in breaking away from the old rules of accent and other antiquated forms, but after the second rehearsal the choristers began to say: "This is easier than the other," and now after three months the psalter is sung more smoothly than in all the five years of the old way.
What are the advantages of this new book? First, The music (beautiful and original) is made to fit the words-not the words to fit the music. Each psalm has its own musical setting, written for it, and expressive of the mood or the meaning of the words. Second, In following the pointing correctly the sentences are clearly expressed as in good English and have not the remotest resemblance to a conundrum put in Chinese.
Lastly, the Southwark Psalter is so far (Continued on page 859, second column.)

A. C. McClurg & Co., Chicago, have just published a life of Remenyi, the celebrated Hungarian violinist. It is by Gwendolyn D. Kelley and George P. Upton, and contains biographical and appreciative chapters, tributes to the artist's genius, and sketches and letters. By far the most important part of the book is the chapter in which the authors give the history of the discovery of Brahms by Remenyi, and the subsequent ingratitude of the composer. The episode is one that does not reflect the greatest credit on Brahms. Many anecdotes enliven the book, and Remenyi's essays, especially the one on Bach, are worthy of more than passing mention. The book is one that will be appreciated by the host of admirers of the late violinist.
The annual choir supper of St. Luke's church choir, Jamestown, N. Y., took place in the guild room of the church on the evening of May 12. It was given to the choir by the ladies of St. Luke's Guild, and was the most successful in the history of the choir.
Before being seated, the choir under the direction of the organist, Mr. K. O. Stops, rendered two glees, and the rector, the Rev. John T. Kerrin, acted as toastmaster. Many amusing incidents were related by the older members of the choir. The choir is composed of twenty boys and ten men, and has given great satisfaction to the parish.

"The freeborn Englishman who very much from the inside writes here of the parson, does so in an altogether inimitable and delightful way. He writes of the parson's elocution, his helpmeet, his children, his holiday, his critics, and a score of other subjects. The papers are sketchy, discursive, many-sided, full of insight and sympathy."-Scotsman.
