In the retrospect the Sixty-first con
gress, which has Just expired by con
stitutiosal limitation, appears to have
been distinguished by three things :
the revision of the tariff in the so
called Payne-Aldrlch bill, which was
passed at an extra session in the sum
mer of 1909; the larg?* amount of Im

the recommendation of President Taft

did, about May 6, 1910, make an im
proper proposal to Senator Gore re

charged with using his appointive

WORK OF MISSION BOARD.
Methodists Will Contribute Over $50,
OOO-Bishop Kilgo'ft Sermon.
The board of missions of the South
Carolina conference held its sessions
i u the Washington Street Methodisl
church. All of the 12 clerical mem
bers of the board, two of the 12 lay
members and six of the 12 presiding
elders were present The collection
and distribution of the $50,000 mis
sionary offering is the business of
the board. The members of the
board think the outlook for the larg
est missionary offering ever made by
the South Carolina conference ii
good, and will be made this year.
Rev. M. B. Kelley is devoting his
time as missionary secretary to thc.
matter of missions throughout thc
Bishop Jno. C. Kilgo, a native ol
Sou?h Carolina, and the son of a
Methodist preacher, addressed thc
board. His subject was "Evange
lism." The bishop also preached at
night to a mixed congregation. The
text chosen was 1 Tim. 1:15: "This ir
a faithful saying and worthy of all
acceptation, that Jesus came into the
world to save sinners."
The bishop said, in substance: "Thc
words of the text are the only ex
planation of tho incarnation and
atonement. The one great fact evei
present to the consciousness of
Christ was the salvation of a sin
cursed world. The one great fact ol
salvation is the explanation of hie
mighty works. He spoke with finality
concerning himself: 'No one cometh
unto the father but by me.'
"The one passion of Jesus was the
salvation of sinners. Their cry com
manded his instant attention. Thc
l?per, the sinful woman, the thie? on
the cross, a penitent Peter, all called
from him instant redemption.
"The church which does not possess
such a passion for sinners is organ
ized hypocrisy. The professing Chris
tian who does not share the passion
of his master is a hypocrite.
"The passion of the master is thc
ground of all the science of missions.
As the church shows the passion of
the master so will the world be
brought to Christ."

HEAD SOLID MASS OF HUMOR
"I think the Cuticura Remedies are
the best remedies for eczema I have
ever heard of. My mother had a child
who had a rash on Its head when lt
was real young. Doctor called it baby
rash. He gave us medicine, but it
did no good. In a few days the head,
was a solid mass; a Tunning sore. It
was awful, the child cried continually.
We had to hold him and watch him
to keep him from scratching the
sore. ' His suffering was dreadfuL At
last we remembered Cuticura Reme
dies. We got a dollar bottle of Cuti
cura Resolvent, a box of Cuticura
Ointment, and.a bar of Cuticura Soap.
We gave the Resolvent as directed,
washed the head with the Cuticura
Soap, and applied the Cuticura Oint
ment We had not used half before
the child's head was clear and free
from eczema, and lt has never como
back again. His head was healthy
and he had a beautiful head of hair.
I think the Cuticura Ointment very
good for the hair. It makes the hair
grow and prevents falling hair.**

A Woman's Letter.
Women, lt ls generally admitted,
write better letters than men.
M. Marcel Pr?vost has discovered
the reason for this Luperiority. "Tho
obvious meaning is never the one we
6hould read into a woman's letteT.
There is always a veiled meaning.
Woman makes use of a letter just
as she employs a glance or a smile.
In a way that is carefully thought out
and with an eye to effect. And; after
all, does a woman's hat serve to cover
her "head? Does a woman's parasol
keep off the sun? Why, then, should
a woman's letter serve to convey her
real thoughts to the person ad
dressed, just like letters of some*
honest grocer, who writes: 1 send you
five pounds of coffee,'* because he
really does send you five pounds of
Consumption Spreads in Syria.
Consumptives In Syria are treated
today much in the same way as the
lepers have been for the last 2,000
years. Tuberculosis is a comparative
ly recent disease among the Arabs and
Syrians, but so rapidly has lt spread
that the natives are in great fear of
It Consequently when a'member of
a family is known to have the disease,
he is frequently cast out and compelled
to die of exposure and want A small
hospital for consumptives has been
opened at Bey rout under the direction
of Dr. Mary P. Eddy.
