We mean the customary Wednesday
evening church meeting. A great many
church members scarcely know that there is
such a meeting. There are even church
orttcers, elders and deacons, and Sunday
school stieriiitehilcnts, and class leader
and other otheers,who have not. for an age,
liecn at a Wednesday evening prayer meet
ing of their chinch, and whose presence
there would lie a novelty. Hut thete is such
a meeting, on Wednesday evening, in al
most all our churches, and certain faithful
members aie always there, and always glad
to be there, for they find them helpful aud
Messed in their Christian life. More ought
to lie there. Many more could be there.
Are you, reader, a member of one of inn
churches" I U'long to one. I propose to
you that we now pledge our
selves to tie at our chinch services this even
ing. and every Wednesday evening. Why
nof.' We can lie, it we want to lie. We
geiieially get where we really vyish to get,
and the man or woman who doesn't get to
the Wednesday evening prayer meeting
doesn't get there simply because he doesn't
wish to lie Ihere. We may as well lw
liiinrst about iL Weotn lie there, with
Tew exceptions, if we irunf to lie. You can
and I can. And weouyit. We owe it to
ourselves, to our fellow Christains, to our
nation, to our God. Come. The meeting
will lie a blessing to you. and you can help
to make it a blessing to others. Let parents
come with their children and teachers with
their scholars and triends with their friends
and let our lecture rooms, on Wednesday
evening, be tilled. Cm:isrix.

Baking Powder Question.
Providence, R. L, April 28, 1887
I hereby certify that I have purchased a sample of
Cleveland's Superior Baking Powder in open market in
Providence and have submitted it to a careful examination
and analysis. Having examined many of tlie baking powders
upon the market in different parts of the country during the
last fifteen years, I am prepared to say that Cleveland's
Superior Baking Powder is the purest first-class cream ot
tartar baking powder that I have ever met, it being entirely
free from ammonia, alum, lime, or any other substance such as
is often used to adulterate or cheapen baking powders.
Ammonia compounds are not legitimate constituents of
baking powder, as by their use a cheaper and inferior article is
made and sold in place of a better and more costly and more
