"The National New Thou;ht Center"
Is a very progressive Institution. It is
located In the business center of the
city (F and 'Ninth streets ). thus mak
ing It most easy of access. Yet its
rooms In the Washington Loan and
Trust building, are at such an clev.t
tion as to exclude all the noise and
confusion of the street. The work cf
this center consists In healing and
teaching by the Christ method. It has
a circulating library, and reading room,
where dally noon meetings are held,
also Wednesday at 8 p. m. and a class
for children Saturday at 10:30 a. m.
Every method that will beat promote
spiritual development 's adopted by
this center. One of Its achievements
is the conversion of one of its rooms
into a "Chamber of Peace."
This room Is furnished in white: white
furniture, white draperies, white frames
for the pictures and white bindings for
the books. This room is set apart for
rest, meditation and silent prayer. All
who enter the room are requested not
to Indulge In anger, fear, depression or
any discordant thought whatever, but
to yield themselves wholly to the In
finite spirit, and to be conscious only
of His presence and receive His peace.
The need of such a place of seclusion
has been fully demonstrated by the
number of people who are seeking such
a haven of rest, as some one has said:
"You need one place to which you can
retire when you feel Inclined, and shut
out everything else so long as you de
sire; you need one place not subject
to any one's Invasion." A place dedi
cated to repose will give you repose and
nothing is more needed In this age of
hurry and frantic effort.
Thousands In their homes have little
or no privacy, where they can with
draw even for a few moments In order
to lest in the consciousness or the Di
vine love and peace, hence the necessity
for a "chamber of peace" that is open
at all times, to all people. It i3 not con
fined to the U3e of the members of the
association, but whosoever will may
enter there; It is free to all, as Whlttler
And so I find it well to come;
For deeper rest to this still room
For here the habit of the soul
leels less the outer world's control.
And from the silence multiplied.
By these still forms on every side.
The world that time and sense has
Falls off, and leaves us God alone.

A children's service of "a somewhat
unique character was held at St. Mark's
Church on Monday evening. December
30. In front of the rood screen was
erected an enormous Christmas tree,
decorated with multi-colored electric
lights and wondrous ornaments of all
descriptions. Into the church there
trouped -about 100 children ot the Sunday
school, and in front of cafch class there
was borne by one member of It a
large luminous star. The children
marched round the church singing the
hymn which )s bo familiar to public
school children. "Once in Royal David's
City." During the short service many
old English and 'French carols were
sung, in which' the congregation, which
filled "every, available seat. Joined.' -A
hush'of expectancy fell over the large
congregation when from the rear of the
church three men's voices were heard,
and up the center aisle "there came the
three wise men arrayed In all the gor
geous vestments of the Orient, singing.
"We Three Men of Orient Are." They
marched with great dignity until they
stood before the Christmas tree, upon
which they gazed in admiration, and
upon which was displayed a symbol of
the star which "they had followed so
many yean ago. After this impressive
ceremony, two of the children from
each of the classes, bearing a star be

were given ,the presents for their re

'Sunday, December "29, inarked the
tenth anniversary of the pastorate of
the Rev. H.'B. Hosley'wlth the Wes
leyan Pentecostal Church ,of the .Naza
rene. of thts city, and was a day long
to' be remembered by all present. The
church was beautifully decorated with
evergreens and. cut flowers, and special
singing added tStKe attractiveness of
the services. '
The morning service -was one of es
pecial Interest. Mr. Chalmers V: Beale
expressed with deep feeling the high
regard ot the church' for the pastor
and their appreciation of his unselfish
and untiring devotion to them and the
work during the .past decade. He
referred to tne fact that he, as clerk
of the church' ten years before, had
written the letter inviting Mr. Hosley
to the pastorate not to a large, wealthy
church and fine edifice, but to the hearts
of the people and congratulated him
nqt only on the success achieved during
his work here, but Xor the fact that the
hearts of tho people were still his.
He then received from pne of the
ushers for presentation to the pastor a
beautiful, framed engrossed greeting,
inlaid with pearl' and embossed and il
lumined with gold. Centered at the top
was a scene In color representing .a
shepherd with sheep and Just below,
with space for signatures, was a reso
lution worded as follows:
"Rev. Henry B. Hosley,
Greetlng:-As this, the 29th day of De
cember, 1912, Is the tenth anlversary of
your pastorate In the Wesleyan Pente
costal Church of the Nazarene. we,
members and friends, feel constrained
to express somewhat our appreciation
of the faithful service you have rend
ered us. In your ministry yoa have al
ways manifested the, tender love of a
shepherd, bearing much more than your
share of the .burden, and your flock
recognizes the blessing of having had sv
faithful leader. You have lived ana
preached the gospel of love, and we
feel that the present excellent spiritual
condition of the church Is. under God,
directly attributable to this ministry.
Our spiritual welfare haa been promoted
and the church has been prospered ma
terially. We- have been safeguarded
from heresies that have wrecked many
other bodies, and led In safe and sane
paths. In thankfulness to God for His
favor in sending you among us. we
hereto subscribe our names, as a mark
of our confidence, love -and -esteem.'
Before the- irastor. had recovered' his
composure. Rev. F. A; Hlllery.of Provi
dence. R. I., stepped forward and. link
ing" bis .arm In hi, spoke ot their long
and tried friendship, and congratulated
hnth church nnd nastor on the beauti
ful spirit of love manifested which had
been unshaken by the storms of so
many years. As Mr. Hillery took Ms
seat. Rev. James D. Acker, of Phlla
de'phia, stepped forward with a large
number or.- letters ana leiegrauis m ma
hand ,'of which he read a few; these had
tw-n received from brother ministers.
many of whom were personal friends ot
tne pastor ana wen acquainieu wmi me
work done here, and expressed love for
him, confidence in his integrity, appre
ciation of the. work accomplished in the
past and best wishes for tho future. Mr.
Acker then presented these to the pas
tor, with a few. words of love and en
couragement, and resumed his seat.
At the vesper servico at the Young
Women's Christian Association, on Sun
day afternoon, at '4:30 o'clock, the
speaker will be Miss Emily S. Hart
well, who has recently come from
Foochow, China. Miss Hartwell was
born In Foochow, which Is called the
"Boston" of China, and has lived there
for the past twenty-nine years. She
has an Interesting story to tell of recent
events in China, and the effect of the
revolution upon the Manchu class, espe
cially the women and girls.
The Manchu dynasty came Into power
In China about 23) years ago. and. at
that time the Manchu emperor took
many of the 'Manchus out of Manchuria
and scattered them throughout tho em
pire as special guards. They were
really slaves of the emperor, and com
pelled to do military service, but at
the same time were supported by spe
cial stipends which always caused them
to bo especially hated by the Chinese
and In fact was one of the causes of
the recent resolution. One of the first
measures of the new government was
the abolishment of these stipends,
which leaves from three to five mil
lion Manchus without any means of
To help these people, and especially
the women and children, an Inter
denominational industrial work has
been started, of which Miss Hartwell
Mrs. Melville D. Lindsay will be the
soloist or the afternoon, and the serv
ice will be followed by the usual ac
