A Beantirnl Tnante.
The morning service at the Episcopal
church Sunday, was the occas-ion ol a
graceful and most appropriate testimo
nial by the members of the church to its
soprano singer, Mrs. XV. P. Hallllay
who is to leave home in a few days, to
spend a year iu Europe lor the benefit of
her health. Mrs. Halliday has been a
member ol the choir of tho Church ot
the Redeemer for nearly lit teen years,
only absent from her part on account of
sickness or absence from the city, and as
a grateful and appreciative recognition
of her faithful attendance and the assist
ance rendered by her sweet and power
ful voice, she received a beautiful and fit
ting flower testimonial from her friends.
The music stand upon the choir platform
used by Mrs. Halliday, was trimmed
with a delicate wreath of myrtle and
lilies ot the Valley.fastcned at the corners
by knots ot brilliant blossom", with a
basket of lovely flowrrs suspended by blue
ribbon from the centre of the stand.
Beautiful bouquets were placed upon the
organ, and in the window back of the
choir seats. Upon a small stau4 just in
front of Mrs. Halliday's pew, on the
platform, stood a beautiful lyre, about
two feet high, covered entirely with
flowers, brilliant tulips and deli-
cate white blossoms, interminirled
with greeu, the strings of the lyre being
formed of exquisite lilies of the valley, a
fragrant and fitting type ot the highest
style of music the worship of the sanc
tuary. The following inscription was
placed at the toot of the lyre :
To Mns. XV. P. Halliday In recog
nition ol the deep obligations'thatjthc con
gregation ot the Church ol the Redeemer
are under to Mrs. Halliday for her kind
services in the choir lor many years, and
in token of their warm appreciation and
affection. 'The most graceful rewards
of art are Nature's gilts.' '
The music was unusually line, and
Mrs. Halliday w ill be greatly missed by
her warm friends, who all unite in cor
dial wishes for a pleasant and prosperous
journey in lorelgn lauds, and a sate re
turn, with renewed health and strength,
to her friends and home.

Kueumauc patients wno have been in
duced to submit to depiction by blood
letting, or to take catecbum and other
drugs ol an equally pernicious character,
will consult their well-being byabandon
ing such insane procedure, and u.-ing as
a substitute Hostetter's Stomaci Bitters,
which will infallibly afford them the
much desired relief, and Is ibsolutely
sate. This benign vegetable depurent
cools the blood by expelling from it the
inilammatory elements which five rise to
maladies of a rheniatic and ifouty type,
and re t tics disordered conditions ot the
stomach, nervous system and bowels
which usually accompany them. As
rheumatism has a tendency to ittauk the
heart, the desirability of an early resort
to the Bitters is obvious, since the danger
is increased by every moment of delay.
