"If ye be risen with Christ, seek the things
that are above, where Christ is sitting at
the right hand of God. Mind, the things
that are above, not the things that are on
the earth," Colossians, 111:1-2, and said:
" The whole spirit of this chapter of St.
Paul breathes self-denial, detachment from
the earth and spiritual resurrection.
"Christ Is our true love. No one ever
captured the hearts of men, and held them
so powerfully, as the love of Ohrist. For
that love, millions of reflecting minds and
pure hearts have gone to the cxtrer> e limits
of the most heroic sacrifice. The secret of
this power of Christ over heartj lies in the
fa?t that He unites transcendentaliy In
Himself all loveable qualities, truth, good
ness and beauty. He has lovel ui first,
best and longest, and love draws love. He
is the only good that can satisfy the crav
ings of the human heart.
"A loving heart wishes to be with the be
loved object. But Christ Is risen; He Is not
here. We seek His visible presence in vein,
hence His love detaches from the earth
a;il brings forth a longing for heaven. The
things of earth can neither satisfy our long
ing:?, nor are they lasting. The heart of
man can never rest contented with the
ephemeral Joys of earth, and the noblest
minds have ever looked with contempt on
the baubles o<f time."

ISOLATION OF PATIENTS.
Garfield Hospital to Guard Against
Spread of Minor Contagions.
Taking cognizance of a report made by
Health Officer Woodward, the Commis
sioners today approved an order that the
authorities of Garfield Memorial Hospital
be required to adopt measures for the
proper isolation of patients suffering from
minor contagious diseases. The health of
ficer declared that sufficient precautions
are not observed at the Garfield Hospital,
and he made this statement particularly
applicable to cases sent there by the health
department. His report opened with a spe
cific instance setting forth the danger to
which patients had been subjected, as fol
"On March 14 patients suffering from
erysipelas, sent to the Garfield Hospital
through the health department and one
suffering from whooping cough, sent to that
institution, were found to be under treat
ment In the same room. This was called
to the attention of the superintendent
On March 20 the whooping-cough case was
discharged as cured. The child was read
mitted to the hospital on March 24, suffer
ing fro mmeasles, and was placed in the
ward with other cases of measles. The in
spector in charge of the contagious disease
service observed that the child had a well
defined paroxysm of coughing, and sug
gested that It be removed to one of the
Buffering from measules alone might not
be exposed to infection by whooping cough.
The removal was not affected, however!
until the night of March 29 or the morning
of March 30."
The health officer Is particularly severe
In his arraignment of the lax methods at
Garfield Hospital when he says:
. "It Is apparent that the health officer
cannot properly request the Commissioners
to ssnd a patient suffering from any con
tagious disease to Garfield Hospital, nor
can the Commissioners properly send any
patient to that Institution if there Is rea
son to believe that a patient suffering from
one contagious disease will, upon his ar
rival in the hospital, be exposed to Infec
tion by others."

and light oak cabinet work. This combina
tion is both chaste and dignified, comport
ing also with the choir rail and panel work
in the rear of the pulpit, which are con
structed of cj'press.
The organ Is provided throughout with
the Mcller patented tubular pneumatic ac
tion, and is very easy of touch and instan
taneous in response. The tone is rich and
the parts well balanced. It has two manu
als. six stop? in great organ and eight in
swell, with two sixteen-foot stops In pedal
organ. There are six couplers, a swell
tremolo, a vox humana and a pedal check,
the latter enabling the performer to step
upon the pedals ad libitum at the conclu
sion of .i ny movement. A grand crescendo
pedal, with a single movement of the foot,
du.ws all the s'.ops, beginning at the soft
est and including reeds and couplers, re
versing the movement in an inverse order.
A special feature is the system of adjust
able combinations, operated by six pistons
RESULTS OF PROBATION.
Number of Children Saved Within
The fifth anniversary of the inauguration
of probation work in the District of Colum
bia. which occurred March II. shows "won
derful results," according to the monthly
report of Probation OlTicer Zed H. Copp of
the Roatd of Children's Guardians. Theie
were 1,37.'! children on probation during the
five years. The number completing the tuli
probation term was 1.12.1. It costs the
government $104 for each Inmate at one
institution and at another, with an
aveiage term of confinement of two years.
At the latter rate, Mr. Copp estimates a
saving of $224,to the government by
probation in keeping children out of in
stitution?. He says that the wages earned
amounted to about $117,<(40, which should
be added to the amount saved, totaling
$.'U2,4-!0 saved to the government ant
society by probation within the last five
years. He says the most important feature,
however, is not the saving of dollars, but
of children, and the transformation of
homes.. Wayward boys have become regu
lar in life and habits, quitting the com- j
panionship of evil associates and a^socla- i
tions and becoming regular In attendance
at divine services and at public school, or,
In lieu of the latter, take regular employ
ment. The home also is greatly benefited
materially, mentally and morally by awak
ening the parents to their duty to them
selves, their home and the children.
The court committed twenty-one children
to Mr. Copp's care during the month of
March. Of these six were white (five boys
and one girl) and fifteen were color.d
(thirteen boys .and two girls). The average
age was fourteen years. Seven had good
homes, thirteen fair and two poor homes.
The offenses were: Larceny, fifteen; as
sault, one; playing craps, two;
stones, one; disorderly one, and incorrigibil
ity, one. There were eighty-five < h'.dren
under active supervision from other months.
The probation term of sixteen expire-}, one
was committed to the Board of Guard an
and two to the Boys' Reform School, .-ixty
slx cases were investigated and prepared
for court; eighty-two visits to children at
home and 144 reports to the office by the
Denatured Alcohol a:id Temperance.

the purposes of the movement. He says:

The organ Is admirably fitted to the lofty"
arch over and back of the pulpit. The
wall in the rear of the organ was especially
constructed upon the sounding-hoard prln? ,

tone, almost like a whisper, to every part
of the church.

a very undesirable and dangerous proceed

of chemical investigation. l>arge quantities
of low grade alcohol can be produced at jl
very low rate, or high grade alcohol c jii M

I claim that it is very probable that the
charlatan, fakir or rumseller. by the appli
cation of similir chemical laws, can trans
form our crude alcohol into a very guoit
.specimen or ' speakeasy whisky.
Of course we have not ye ?"teached the

In the period of twenty years l>efore iwa
there was no Internal rev. r.ue tax on alco
hol of any kind In the United States, ami
the temperance reform never made such
prog ess at any period of that epoch as dur.

single syllable of complaint from any tem
perance man that this Industrial alcohol
operated against the temperance reform It
Is the beverage use that kills.
It is true that it is possible to rectify de
natured alcohol so as to m;ke it drinkable.
But it Is also true that it would cost more
tc^so rectify it than it will cost to manu
facture It over again from the original ma
terials. 1 make this statement on the au
thority of Dr. H. W. Wiley, chief of the
bureau of chemistry of the Cnlted States
Department of Agriculture; Dr. J H. Dong,
professor of chemistry of :he Northwestern
Medical College, and Dr Iia Rem.sen, presi
dent of Johns Hopkins University.
There Is not a temperance leader In the
United States opposing this legislation. On
the contrary, practically all of them sra
actively urging its passage.
