Our grandmothers knew this when they dosed us with sulphur and molasses every spring and fall, but the crudity and impurity of ordinary flowers of sulphur were often worse than the disease, and cannot compare with the modern concentrated preparations of sulphur, of which Stuart's Calcium Wafers is undoubtedly the best and most widely used.

They are the natural antidote for liver and kidney troubles and cure constipation and purify the blood in a way that often surprises patient and physician alike.

Dr. R. M. Wilkins, while experimenting with sulphur remedies, soon found that the sulphur from Calcium was superior to any other form. He says: "For liver, kidney and blood troubles, especially when resulting from constipation or malaria, I have been surprised at the results obtained from Stuart's Calcium Wafers. In patients suffering from boils and pimples and even deepseated carbuncles, I have repeatedly seen them dry up and disappear in four or five days, leaving the skin clear and smooth. Although Stuart's Calcium Wafers is a proprietary article, and sold by druggists, and for that reason tabooed by many physicians, yet I know of nothing so safe and reliable for constipation, liver and kidney troubles and especially in all forms of skin disease as this remedy.'


At any rate people who are tired of pills, cathartics and so-called blood "purifiers," will find in Stuart's Calcium Wafers a far safer, more palatable and effective preparation.

On Christmas Day, at the morning service, there was instituted at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Baltimore, a vested choir of mixed voices. The choir has eighteen members under the direction of Mrs. Goerke, and has shown marked, improvement recently. There is also an auxiliary choir of boys and girls recruited from the Sunday-school, which sings at the evening service and is rapidly gaining proficiency in church music. The bishop of the diocese preached at the service and afterwards expressed his pleasure at this step forward in the work at Holy Trinity. The Rev. W. B. McPherson is the rector of

the church.

The choir of St. Paul's cathedral, Cincinnati, under the direction of James E. Bagley, sang the cantata, "The Message of the Star," by R. Huntington Woodman, on the evening of the Sunday after Christmas. This was the twenty-fourth special musical service given under Mr. Bagley's direction and attracted the usual large congregation. The oratorio of "St. Paul" will be sung on the Sunday evening following St. Paul's Day.

On New Year's Eve a Carol Festival was held at Christ church, Fitchburg, Mass., at which ancient and modern carols were sung under the conductorship of Mr. John David Lloyd. Mr. Lloyd is giving a series of organ recitals, the next one being announced for On Sunday, Jan. 28, there will be a choral festival at which Stainer's "Daughter of Jairus" will be given.

Jan. 18.

A new portable console is about to be added to the organ at the Church of the Incarnation, New York City, by E. M. Skinner & Co. "Stop-keys" will be used instead of draw stops, and these will number 115. Many improvements have been made in the organs of the parish during Mr. W. R. Hedden's incumbency, and about $30,000 has been spent.

Mr. F. E. Howard, choirmaster of St. John's church, Bridgeport, Conn., died on New Year's Day. Mr. Howard had been in poor health for some months, and his death was not unexpected. He was well known as a trainer of boys' voices, and was the author of a little book entitled "The Child Voice in Singing," and editor of a collection of School Songs.

Mr. F. G. Chegwidden has been appointed director of music at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, New York, to succeed Mr. T. Prentice, who becomes organist emeritus. Mr. W. A. Raboch, formerly of St. Chrysostom's chapel,

Trinity parish, will be associated with Mr. Chegwidden in his new position.

A vested choir of girls has been organized at Grace church, Oak Park, Chicago, Ill., to sing at the Friday evening services.

At the Church of the Redeemer, Providence, R. I., the mixed choir of thirty voices was vested for the first time on Christmas Eve. The cantata, "The Nativity," was rendered under the direction of Dr. Jules Jordan.

[Boston Correspondence.]

The Christmas music in Boston offered few novelties of importance, and in many instances the programmes contained exclusively old-timers-some Worthy, others not deserving of revival.

At Trinity church, the Kyrie and Sanctus were composed by Organist Wallace Goodrich; the other numbers including Stanford's Te Deum and Benedictus in B flat; Mendelssohn's "Rejoice, O ye People of Earth," and West's






"O Come, Redeemer of Mankind.” Clarence B. Shirley, tenor, was the chief soloist.

At the Church of the Advent the choir gave the familiar Anglican version of Gounod's "St. Cecilia Mass" and the "Hallelujah Chorus" from "The Messiah." A. W. Snow was choirmaster, with S. B. Whitney, organist.

William A. Paull, organist and choirmaster at the Church of the Messiah, gave a Communion Service by Cruickshank, Garrett's Te Deum in E flat, Jubilate in D, by Field, also anthems by Macfarren and Cruickshank.

The music at St. Paul's, given under direction of Organist Warren A. Locke, included Buck's B minor Te Deum, once a favorite for all the "star quartettes"; Parker's anthem, "Before the Heavens," with the Kyrie and Sanctus by the same composer; a Benedictus by Field, and the introit anthem, "Bethlehem," by H. Clough-Leighter.


Arthur S. Hyde, organist of Emmanuel church, gave an interesting musical service that had Naylor's Communion Service in D as the chief feature, with Calkin's Te Deum and Benedictus in G, anthem by Macpherson and carol by Praetorius.

Selby's Te Deum, Kyrie and Sanctus, also Harris's "Break Forth into Joy,' were given at St. James's church, Roxbury. J. Frank Botume was the choirmaster and Mr. Blackmer, organist.

In the lists of the many other services there is little of importance, almost everything being familiar from years of usage. Among the organ numbers the arrangement of the "Hallelujah Chorus" was most in evidence.

The Handel and Haydn Society in its usual performances of "The Messiah," Dec. 24 and 25, made a departure from the usual custom, in the introduction of three numbers of the oratorio that

Business News and Notes,

For the bishops the Gorham Company has prepared this year an ornate and peculiarly Episcopal calendar. The usual table of days for each month is enclosed in a decorative border, the central figure of which is one of the apostles. The design is printed in purple and black. The twelve sheets form a pad with a black sealskin-covered clamp at the top. This pad is laid on another larger one, also of sealskin, the division being marked by a narrow purple border. The back is polishe leather with devices for standing or hanging, though the calendar may as suitably lie on the desk if desired. For the clergy the same calendar has been prepared with a mounting less elegant, but yet dignified.


have usually been omitted, also putting the "Hallelujah Chorus" last, omitting the "Amen Chorus." In consequence, many who were accustomed to leave the hall after hearing the "Hallelujah Chorus" at the end of part two had to remain to the end if they wished to hear their old favorite.

The Society under Emil Mollenhauer, sang superbly at both performances. The soloists at the first were: Charlotte Maconda, Mrs. W. S. Bracken, Theo. Van Yorx, and L. B. Merrill; at the second, Mary Hissem De Moss, Ernestine Fish, Edward Barrow and Frederick Martin. Most of them proved acceptable, but, undoubtedly, the best were Mme. De Moss and Mr. Martin.

John Batchelder, for over ten years organist and choirmaster at Christ church, Andover, Mass., received a valuable gold watch as a present from rector and choir, in appreciation of his faithful services for so many years. Mr. Batchelder has done much to raise the standard of Church music, and his many friends will be glad to learn of the esteem in which he is held in Andover.

The Boston Singing Club gave its first concert of its present season, Dec. 27, at Jordan Hall, under direction of H. G. Tucker. Mary Hissem De Moss and Gwilym Miles were the soloists. The Club gave pleasing numbers by Bach, Brahms, Elgar, Tschaikowsky, Cornelius and Macfarren.

No man can serve two masters. It is impossible to find a clearer saying. The statement is categorical. If it embarrassed us less, we should find nothing to say against it. But as the thought takes on a personal application and presses us close, we seek to find the image in fault.-Charles Wagner.

The true wish of the growing man ought to be that he may keep his share in the impulses that impel the simplest man, so far as they are healthy and genuinely human; and that, within these impulses, he may advance to ever new perception of their richness and ever deeper experience of their strength. It is what Schiller sings of man and the lower creatures.Phillips Brooks.

Let Him teach us to make use of the remains, piously to gather up the fragments, says Charles Wagner. Let Him give us a little love with our misery, a little hope with our poverty, a little confidence with our doubts, a little, finally, of the bread of God which gives life to the world, and we shall be able to make our brothers live; and seeing the effects of this nourishment which renders strength and affection, we shall henceforth have but one prayer: Lord, give us always of this bread.

One of our ministers was waiting for the train at a little station in North Carolina. He had just been visiting a sick woman far off in the mountains. A tall, gawky boy of seventeen walked up to him and said: "Be you a preacher?" On being answered affirmatively, he continued:* "What church are you preacher in?" "The Episcopal Church." "Where you been?" The priest replied: "Over to see Mrs.- -; she is very sick; she is dying." "You been over there to-day? Well, I want to tell you, Mr. Preacher, you're awful good to us people, you 'Piscopals do more 'an all the rest of 'em put together."

Perfect health is not freedom from sickness. Very many who have weak hearts imagine because they do not suffer any great inconvenience that their health is comparatively good, when the fact is this most insidious disease is fast robbing them of their very life-blood. Neglect of the earlier stages of this disease is almost invariably the rule. This is wrong; as the proper treatment when the first symptoms appear would be the means of prolonging life. In order that there may be no excuse for this neglect, and to satisfy those thus afflicted that Dr. Miles's New Cure for the Heart will be beneficial in each individual case, every druggist in the United States is authorized to refund the price of the first bottle if it fails to benefit. This is not only true of the earlier symptoms, but there are very few cases of heart disease where the Heart Cure will not greatly benefit if it does not effect a complete cure. Every one suffering from shortness of breath, palpitation, irregular pulse, fainting or hungry heart distress when pains, spells, lying on left side, smothering spells, swelling of feet or hands, should try it.

When we live in wealth, in ease, or even in a good ordinary manner, it is almost impossible to imagine how much energy it requires to economize in narrow circumstances. To foresee the future is easier when the present does not overwhelm you. But when concern for bread, poverty, hunger, hold you in their grasp, needs, pressing and imperious, still the voices of the morrow. To economize in the things that are necessary, to deprive yourself to-day in order to be a little less hard pressed later on, is very difficult. And above all, this presupposes vigilance and patience at every moment. Perseverance, the spirit of renunciation, temperance, firmness in the face of temptations and impulses, all this is necessary for the poor who practise economy, and, above all, they require a great love for their family.This is the inner spring that permits them to sustain so difficult a task.Charles Wagner.

A true social life! remember that that does not mean what often passes for society, says Phillips Brooks. The ordinary contacts of men in business, whose knowledge of and care for one another is limited to their mere business interests, who never talk anything but business; and the frivolous meetings of what we call fashionable life; these are not true companionship. Out of their very midst a man or woman falls, and they have no power of help. The dumb company of brute with brute in a pasture or a barnyard, their stolid huddling to each other's sides, means more of real association than much that we call social life. But the true society, in which man really meets with man, and mind with mind, and heart with heart, and character with characterthat is another thing, a thing you cannot do without. As you shun the false, so 'seek the true. Draw really near your fellows, and do not live alone.

This is the season when persons desiring to avoid the rigors of the Northern winter journey to the sunny South and laugh at the thoughts of blizzards, ice storms and fogs. Camden, S. C., familiarly known as the Long Pine Leaf Region, is particularly favored by winter tourists, on account of its accessibility, equability of climate and beautiful environments.

The Kirkwood, Camden's famous hotel, opened for the season on New Year's Day, under the management of T. Edmund Krumbholz.

Brains are the working capital of a larger class of people in this busy, competitive age than ever before, and it is surprising how recklessly they draw upon it. Very many do not seem to be able to discriminate between the use and abuse of this vital organism. The intense mental effort, anxiety and excitement involved in the effort to keep pace with modern methods exhausts the nerves of the brain, causes headache, neuralgia, pain under the eyes, excessive lassitude, irritability, sleeplessness, poor memory and inability to concentrate thought; and finally nervous prostration.
