The onenln? lecture In a serias of
six was given by Mrs. D. B. Weils of
Chicago, yesterday afternoon at
Broadway Presbyterian church, under
the auspices of the Missionary Social
union. Mrs. William McLean Stewart
in welcoming the ladies expressed her
pleasure at the large attendance and
her delight in the union procuring
Mrs. Wells for this lecture course.
Mrs. Wells took a few moments for
a bible study deallnjr with "Life" then
went on to Btudy foreign missions tak
ing "Hinduism" as her subject and
closing with a study of home missions
with "A Conserving Force" as her
theme. In the study of life she Bald
that spiritual growth is the special
privilege of all Christians as against
the religions which are man made.
God'provides definite laws of spiritual
growth which must not be violated
She then went on to show how to de
velop spiritual growth.
LIGHT OF THE WORLD.
The foreign text book "The Light
of. the World" by Robert Speer she
took as a basis of her foreign study
saying that the book might as well
have been called "The Only Way'
There are three purposes which she
wished to bring out in the book: To
show points of difference and points
of contact between religions and the
only way: To show fallacies and
puncture facts In other religions: To
glorify Christ. Mrs. Wells then took
up the study of Hinduism as the old'
est and earliest known religion, having
had its origin about 6,000 years be
fore Christ. She spoke of it as the
poorest, simplest and at the same
time most complex of all religions
and as setting forth claims that can
not be substantiated. It is the simp
lest because there Is nothing in It, its
books are of two classes, revelation
and traditions, revealed by some one,
some where, some time through some
one to some one. Its deficiencies are:
It is responsible for caste; inferiority
of women, making them mere instru
ments in the hands of man for his
selfish desires; pantheism, which
teaches that an evil spirit in an icy
pavement makes one fall, that an evil
sDirit elves one the chills: politheism
I uith it a vnrta RrnHma Vlnlinii Anil
Siva. She then pointed out the points
of difference between Hinduism and
Christianity. Hinduism teaches that
man seeks God, Christianity that God
fecl.s man: Hlndiiism that man is an
illusion, Christianity that man is re
redeemed; Hinduism that sin does
not exist, Christianity that sin does
exist but may be conquered; indiffer
ence to every one as against consid
eration for every one; coma as against
hope and life; gods evil and vengful
and hateful as against a loving and
STIDV OP HOME MISSIONS.
She lastly took up the study of the
home mission text book, "The Conser
vation of National Ideals" and ex
plained the purposes of the book as to
make clear the scope of home mis
sions; to define one's neighbor and
to bring out of cold storage emotions,
aspirations and ideals. She spoke of
the responsibility of the American re
public since from it has been pat
terned 83 republics aspirations and
ideals havi- made the nation what it
Is. She paid a beautiful tribute to
the work of women in the advance
ment of the nation, of. their great self
sacrifice, their wonderful power of or
ganization and their recognition of
the power of little things.
Mrs. Wells Is a speaker of great In
tellectuality, putting her points in a
vivid, entertaining way and she inter
sperses her remarks with a large fund
of stories that so well Illustrate her

Blundered, and Great Good Came of it.
A careless grocer left the wrong
package at a Michigan home one day
and thereby brought a great blessing
to the household.
"Two years ago I was suffering
from stomach trouble, so acute that
the effort to digest ordinary food gave
me great pain, and brought on a con
dition of such extreme nervousness
that I could not be left alone. I
thought I should certainly become in
sane. I was so reduced in flesh that
I was little better than a living skele
ton. The doctors failed to give mo
relief and I despaired of recovery.
"One day our grocerj'iuan left
a package of Grape-Nuts food by mis
take, so I tried some for dinner. I
was surprised to find that it satisfied
my appetite and gave me no distress
whatever. The next meal I ate of it
again, and to be brief. I have lived for
the past year almost exclusively on
Grape-Nuts. It has proved to be a
most healthful and appetizing food,
perfectly adapted to the requirements
of my system.
"Grape-Nuts is not only easily di
gested and assimilated, but I find that
since I have been using it I am able to
eat anything else my appetite fancies.
without trouble from Indigestion. The
stomacn trouble and nervousness
have left me. I have regained my
rlumpness and my views of life are
no longer despondent and gloomy.
"Other members of my family, espe
cially my husband, (whose old ene
my, the 'heart-burn.' has been
qutshed) have also derived great ben
efit from the use of Grape-Nuts food
and .we taink no morning meal com

Commemoratory services for Ab
raham Lincoln were held at chapel
exercises of . Augustana yesterday.
Dr. E. F. Bartholomew, vice presi
dent of the college, spoke and com
pared Lincoln to Saul, taking for his
text chapter 9 of the first book of
Famuel. Dr. Bartholomew said in
Saul was an anointed captain
over the people of Israel to save the
people out of the hands of the Phil
istines. So Abraham Lincoln was
anointed of the Lord a leader to de
liver the people from the hands of
the Philistine slave merchants 'For
have looked upon my people be
cause their cry is come unto me.'
The cry of slavery reached unto
heaven and an anointed captain is
sent to work deliverance. Behold
the scene in New Orleans the slave
auction, the innocent octoroon out
raged and insulted by the brutal
auctioneer. The young man Lincoln
witnesses the iniquitous transaction.
His great soul rises in righteous in
dignation. A spirit from above pos
sesses him; an inspiration has come
upon him as the answer - of his
anointing, when he breaks out

cially the Denkmann Memorial li

terested in the normal work done by
these institutions. Having visited
already the schools of the north and
tbe west he will now travel east
ward. Dr. Ordal stated that he was
very much Impressed with Augus
tana and the work it is doing.
At High School
The German club met last evening
in regular session. A short story
waa read, tbe members translating
Fsrt which they had prepared.
Those who bad memorized short
German verses, recited them.
Mr.' Burton is preparing a pro
gram which is to be heard at general
assembly on Washington's birthday,
Feb. 22. The Theadelphic, Hart and
Ciceronian literary and debating so
cieties will have some of thei? e2i
bers on the program.
Do yon know that croup can be
prevented? Give Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy a3 soon aa the child
becomes hoarse or even after the
croupy rough appears and it will
prevent the attack. It is also a cer
tain cure for croup and has never
been known to faU. Sold by ail
Ada T.: Avoid all complexion creams
which contain oil, as they make the
ekin shiny and cause hair to grow on
the face. By stirring 2 teaspoonfuls
glycerine and 1 ounce almozoin Into
pint cold water you have a matchless
cream Jelly for clearing, softening and
whitening the skin. It is unsurpassed
for cleaning tbe complexion and mak
ing it smooth and youthful looking.
Use this morning and night and you
need have no worry about the way
your face will look.
Mrs. F. B.: Weight reduction is a
very simple matter. These old-fashioned
theories of violent exercises and
starvation are all nonsense, and at the
best furnish only temporary relief. To
take off fat, use this remedy: Dissolve
4 ounces of parnotis in 1 pints hot
water and take a tablespoonful before
meals. This simple, harmless remedy
works wonders where many of the
"sure cures" fail. It leaves the skin
smooth and firm.
W. A. B.: Only healthy scalps pro
duce beautiful, abundant hair. You
must keep your scalp clean by sham
pooing as often as necessary. The fol
lowing tonic will prove an unfailing
remedy for dandruff, itching scalp and
falling hair: Stir one ounce of quinzoin
into -pint alcohol, then add -pint
cold water. Rub this tonic into the
scalp about twice a week. It will do
wonders for your diseased scalp and
make your thin, straggly hair thick,
long and beautiful.
Elsie S.: That sickly look you have,
besides your loss of energy and run
down condition, are due to a sluggish.
Impure blood. Incident to the winter
months. This is very common, but is
easily overcome by taking before meals
a tablespoonful of this simple system
tonic: In -plnt alcohol dissolve one
ounce kardene, adding -cup sugar and
hot water to make a quart. This is a
wonderful blood purifier and strength
restoring tonic. There is nothing like
it for giving one rich, red blood, en
ergy and good health.
Belle: The reason your hair looks
so dull and faded and ig bo hard to ar
range Is that you have made the usual
mistake of shampooing with soap.
Any woman who uses soap shampoos
cannot expect to have beautiful hair.
It may clean the hair, but does not re
move the pore-dirt from the hair roots.
Your hair becomes stringy and unman
ageable In a few days and you wonder
why. Let soap shampoos alone and
use a teaspoonful of canthrox dis
solved in a cup of hot water for your
shampoo, If you want your hair to dry
evenly and quickly without streaking.
Canthrox makes the hair very fluffy
and bright, and gives to the scalp a
feeling of pleasing freshness. You
will not catch cold if you shampoo
with canthrox and will find it makes
your hair look so very nice.
Anxious Mother: If your baby has
diarrhoea, dysentery or other bowel
trouble, take a tablespoonful of F. N.
Johnson's especially prepared pure
barley flour, stir in enough cold water
to make a thin batter; then add one
pint of boiling water and a pinch of
salt; stir slowly and let boil five min
utes. Strain and feed to the baby
warm through nursing bottle. When
bowels become normal and baby Is In
good condition gradually add milk to
barley and water.
J. (M. S.: Cutting the hairs o"hly
makes them come in heavier. Get an
original package of delatone and with
a little of the powder mix enough wa
ter to form a paste. Put this on the
hairy surface and after two or three
minutes rub off, wash the skin and
every trace of hair will have vanish
ed. Druggists charge a dollar an
ounce for delatone, but it never fails
to do the work.
Mrs. V. G.: The woman who uses
face powder not only Is behind the
times, but does herself a personal In
Jury. Face powder is only a mockeiy
to beauty, as it clogs the skin pores,
causing wrinkles and other complex
ion ills. To have a perfect complexion,
use a good lotion such as the follow
ing: Dissolve 4 ounces of spurmax in
4-pint witch hazel (or hot water),
adding 2 teaspoonsfula glycerine. This
lotion gives the skin a decidedly re
fined lcok of velvety smoothness. It
removes the shine, immediately cor
rects sallow, freckled complexions
and does not come off in the wind like
powder does or rub off easily when a
veil is worn. This lotion is a splen
did beautiSer and skin whitener.
S. D.: Yes, no factor Is more Impor
tant In a beautiful face than bright,
clear, youthful eyes. You should use a
good eye tonic. Get an ounce of crys
tos, dissolve it in a pint of water and
use two or three drops in each eye
dally. It will clear and strengthen
your eyes, remove all signs of weak
ness and inflammation and make them
bright and sparkling. For weak, dull,
expressionless eyes I think this tonic
simply wonderful. It is very sooth
ing, and Is fine for those who wear
