MRS. M. S. BRADY.
Mrs. Mildred Scott Brady entered into life eternal in the early morning of Saturday, March :*0th, Easter Even. The angels were hovering around- - her guardian angel and all the other angels who at her Redeemer's com mand had watehe'd over her pathway. She was the wife of Alfred F. Brady, and the mother of three children? Al fred and Hugh Brady, her two sons, and one daughter. Miss Sallie Brady. ller lovely home, Beechwood. was in Buckingham County and near How ardsville. It was there she loved to dispense her beautiful hospitality, and thence she went to her home in glory to be with her dear Saviour, whom she knew and loved and served and glori fied in her life. Mrs. Brady was a devout member of the Presbyterian church. But as a min ister of another church said of the Rev. Dr. Theoderic Pryor Epes, of sainted memory, "He was a devout and loyal Presbyterian, but he was more of a Christian than he was a Presbyterian." So Mrs. Brady did not think that all of God's children belonged to her Church. She loved God's people of every name, and had sweet Christian fellowship with all the devout follow ers of the Lord Jesus. With a kind heart and richly endowed mind, she loved her Saviour with her mind as well as with, her heart. She was a large factor for good in the commu nity where she lived. She had many friends among the ministers and mem bers of other churches. It was said of a devout woman, now passed to her reward, "Her presence was a sacra ment," meaning, perhaps, to be with this devout soul was to renew one's vows of allegiance and love to our Lord. So we might say of Mrs. Brady her presence suggested our Saviour's presence. She made real the words of the Apostle Paul, "God, who com manded the light to shine out of dark ness, hath shined in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ." Her face reflected the glory of her Saviour. God and heaven seemed near er when she was present. Her chil dren all breathed her spirit. A pro fessor who was principal of a school which her boys attended said to this writer, "It is a pleasure to have them here." Her husband, too, rises up and calls her blessed. May God our Father Ik; with each one and fill with His own presence the void His Providence has made in their lives. And so. Bless ed Lord, when thou makest up thy jev.cls in thy glorious kingdom, may all be there and be thine. Under a cloudless sky, in the clear sunlight of our last most beautiful Kas ter Day, when we were commemorat ing our Lord's Resurrection, her body was laid to rest at Monmouth, her an cestral home, awaiting the day when "the bodies of our humiliation shall be made like unto our Saviour's glo rious body." With devout expectation the large concourse of loving relatives and friends seemed to look up and re-echo her own beautiful prayer. "Amen, even so; come, Ix>rd Jesus." T. H. Ijiey.

Since the opening of the second term in January, several more of the students have enlisted in the army, and as the time comes every man steps out willingly and enthusiasti cally. The prospects for next session, in spite of the war conditions, are encouraging, and already there have been a number of inquiries and re quests for catalogues and other infor mation. A special feature of next year's work, in addition to the strong military department, which is prac tically assured, will be a course in Spanish. I Presbyteries J MISSISSIPPI.

Frank Foods That Fight! W1C ALT. know that the chemist in his laboratory lias to be ex tremely careful in combining chemicals or he will cause an explosion, i'.ut what many of us do not know is that the human body, plants, flowers, everything ? every drop of water, and every bit of food, are composed of exactly the same elements that the chemist handles so carefully. And in our ignorance we continue to juggle foods about carelessly ? we mix them at our own pleasure ? we pour them into our stomachs in such combinations as would cause an explosion if mixed in a chemist's retort. That is what we mean by "Foods That Fight." There are many foods, good in themselves, but when poured into the stomach in improper combinations at tack each other as one vicious bulldog attacks another. You can imagine how tills "fighting" disturbs the proper work of the stomach and connecting orsrans of the body. WHY WK GET SICK. Health is a natural condition. Nature, if not interfered with, would keep every one well. But we heedlessly or uncon sciously put obstacles in Nature's way, ? we eat "foods that fight," ? or we in some other way disobey Nature's laws, and then we become sick. All disease is caused by the violation of Nature's Own laws. Of all Nature's laws, the law of Nutri tion (converting and absorbing food into the body) is probably least understood ? and consequently most often violated. So little is it understood, indeed, that one eminent scientist estimates that 90 per cent of all human ills are caused, directly or indirectly, by disobedience to this one law. Til K I. AW OF M TUITION. Vet this law is very simple. It sets forth only three fundamental princi ples: First, that food must be selected which will supply all the elements that the body needs. Second, that food must be eaten only in such combinations as will agree chemically. Third, that the correct proportions shall be eaten so as not to supply too much of some things and not enough of others. Obey these three rules, and you in crease bodily health, strength and vigor. Disobey them, and you disturb Nature's systematic working, weaken your re sistance, and invite disease. TRIE PIHPOSE OF FOOD. The true purpose of food is to pro mote growth and sustain life. That person enjoys the best health, the keenest mental and perccptive powers, the highest mental and physical organism, who can select and feed upon such articles as will supply all the things the body needs in their purest form and in right or natural propor tions. Hut the best food is often rendered useless ? many times positively harmful ? by taking quantities larger than can lie digested, or in combinations that are chemically inharmonious. Til K SECRET OF IIK \ I, 'I'll. The remedy for all disease is to re move the cause. Medicines may give temporary relief. Permanent cure can be effected only by removing or cor recting the cause of the trouble. When you consider, therefore, that a majority of all disease Is caused by stomach disturbances, you see how im portant it is that we study very care fully how to keep the stomach in Its natural healthy condition, and how to restore that condition after it has once been disturbed. How, for example, can you prevent stomach disturbances if you do not know the "foods that tight"? How can you decrease your weight unless you know the foods that make fat? How can you Increase your weight and strength un less you know what foods supply fat and strength? How can you keep the body well unless you know what makf-s it sick? ONE (iltEAT AUTHORITY. One of the greatest ? if not the greatest- ? students of this s.ubject is Kugene Christian, the eminent New York food scientist, whose work has se cured for him an enviable reputation throughout the country. It is to him we are indebted for putting in simpli fied form the fundamental principles which underlie all the processes of build ing. rebuilding and keeping the human body in repair. This he has done in a course of what he calls Kittle Lessons in Corrective Kating, published and distributed by the Corrective Kating Society of New York. These lessons ? there are 24 of them ? contain actual menus for breakfast, luncheon and dinner, curative as well as corrective, covering every condition of health and sickness from infancy to old age, and for all occupations, climates and seasons. They tell not only the foods that light, but hundreds of other tilings, about food that we all ouKht to know. Keasons are given for every reco m m endation based upon actual results secured in the author's many years of practice. Technical terms have been a\oided, and every point is explained so clearly that there can be no possible misun derstanding. Kvery point Is so thor oughly covered that you can scarcely think of a question which isn't a n s were d. You can start eat ing the very things that will produce the physical and mental change you are seeking the day you receive the lessons, and you will find that you secure results with the first meal.
