Bock Iblaito, Oct. 24. The Ladies
Industrial Belief society of this city is
about to begin another year's work and
desires to enlist the sympathy and sup
port f all who are charitably inclined.
They have been much encouraged in the
past b the cheerful assistance rendered
by the press and people, and with hearty
thanks to both would iepectrully solicit
a continuance of farors. Our work last
year, we trust, did something toward re
lieving the unfortunate of our own city
and the sufferers in Dakota. There
always has been and always will be dis
couraging features to encounter in the
work of helping the pocr and the
needy, but the society looks with partic
ular satisfaction upon the aid it has been
able to render the rged and infirm, the
sick and dying, the blind, the widow, the
orphan, the himelesa and friendless
grl in the armory and many
Hungry and . unclothed children.
The details of this work
so far as it has seemed wise and right to
publish them, have been given from time
to time in tte papers, and the same plan
will be pursued this year. The sewing
school is one of the most encouraging
ieaiures 01 our wore carried on under the
able management of Mrs. Magill and
faithful helpers. The average attend
ance of pupils last year was 11
and of teachers 11. Toward the close
of the year, this department wss much
enhanced in comfort and convenience by
the purchase of small chairs and table, at
our expense of $3 j.45. and with the ad
vantage of these a p'easant and profitable
year is expected. Our good house keep
ers were more than generous in send
ing donations of clotbinp last
year, out tne demands were many
and now at the beginning of this yesr
the supply is lew, and the wardrobe and
relief committee ask that what can be
spared may be sent in promptly. Anv
such donations may be sent to the third
story of the old high school building any
Saturday afternoon between the hours of
and 4 o'clock. Solicitors have been
appointed in each ward to wait upon
people for m mberrbip fees, and any
who may fee) that they cannot become
active members of the society may by
the payment of their dollar have a share
in its work and tbeir names uoon its roll.
Profited by the experience ot the past,
and encouraged by the sympathy of tt e
people it is noped that the society m ty
do more and better work than ever be
fore. The nam-8 of officer and ward
managers will be published next week.

At Trinity church yesterday, Rev.R. F.
Sweet,the rector, announced an important
and radical chatipe in the form of the ser
vice, which will be inaugurated ntxt Sun
dayAll S lints' day. The change, Mr.
Sweet stated, he had had in mind for
B'uw time, and only decided to make it
after the most serious consideration on
bis own part, and that of his vestry, to
whom he had submitted it, and the
unanimous approval of which had been
given it. The first object of the change,
he said, was to bring the Sunday school
into the true worship of the church, and
also inapt ess upon the older people of the
church the importance of coming out to
the night service. The forms of morn
ing and evening prayer are to similar in
the prayer book that many people have
taken the wrong idea that after attend
ing the morning service it was
unnecessary to attend the evening service.
Mr. Sweet's hope was that by putting the
morning prayer into the Sunday school
the older people would be induced to
come out to the evening service, and so
that a double purpose would be served in
the change, one beneficial to the children
of the Sunday school and likewise to the
older members ot the parish.
Accordingly commencing next Sunday
the Sunday school will commence at 9.30
in the morning instead of 0:15. It will
be opened in the usual form and three
quarters of an hour given to instruction.
Then commencing at 10:15 will occur the
service of morning prayer prescribed by
the book of common prayer. This will
take nntil 10:45,and it is the expectation
or course mat it snail not be strictly a
Sunday school service, but that all par
ishioners so desiring may participate. At
1 1 o'clock will commence the regular morn
ing service which will consist of the litany,
ante-communion and sermon, and at 13
o'clock the office of holy communion.

In the matter of curatives what you
want is something that will do its w rk
while you continue to do youre a rem
edy that will give you no inconvenience
nor interfere with your btsineai. Such a
remedy is Allcocks Forous Plasters.
These plasters are not an experiment;
they have been in use for over 30
year', and their value has been attested
by the highest medical authorities, as
well as by testimonials from those who
baye used them. They require no change
of diet snd are not affected by wet or
cold. Their action does not interfere
with labor or business; you can toil and
yet be cured while bird at work. They
are so pure that the youngest, the oldest,
the most delicate person of either sex
can use them with great benefit.
Beware of imitations, and do not be
deceived by misrepresentations. Ask for

The readers of the Argcs will be pleased
to learn that there is at least one dreaded
disease that science has been able to cure
in all its stages, and that is catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only positive
cure now known to the medical fraternity.
Catarrh being a constitutional disease re

Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting
directly upon the blood and mucous sur

the foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature in doing
its work. The proprietors have so much
faith in its curative powers, that tbey

that it fails to cure. Send for list of tes

General Lee'a Answer.
After the surrender at Appomattox, Gen
eral Wise came ridiDg down the road furi
ously to where General Lee and his staff
were grouped. He was splashed with mud
from head to heels, and there were great
splotches of mud dried and caked upon his
face. Addressing General Lee, he asked,
in a theatrical voice, "Is it true, General
Lee, that you have surrendered?" "Yes,
General Wise, it is true." "I wish, then,
to ask you one question. What is going to
become of my brigade. General Lee, and
what is going to become of me?" General
Lee looked at the splashed warrior for a
fall minute, and then said, calmly and in
a low tone, "General Wise, go and wash
your face." San Francisco Argonaut.
