Mr. MacMahou chose as his theme the first five verses of the second chapter of First Corinthians. His address to the congregation was more in the form of a talk than a sermon, and was impressive for its earnestness and eloquence. He spoke of the pleasant relations that had always existed between tbe pastor and congregation, and of his regret in leaving.

"While I am thankful that my la bors have borne fruit, I do not take the glory to myself; as in one of the verses of my text, "My speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of Power." "I wish you all to show the same loyalty to one another that you hare shown me, by being faithful to all the services of the church, especially the prayer meeting. The motto I shall leave you is this: ' 'One is Your Master, Kren Chris, and all Ye Are Brethren. '" ANNUAL PICNIC Of Employes of Capron & Curtice Company Prize Winners.

DISGUISED An Akron Address In Peculiar Way, But Experts at Dead Letter Office Succeeded In Making It Out. A sketch article in the September number of the Ladies' Home Jour nal, written by Mrs. Patti Lyle Col lins, the head of a department of the dead letter office at Washington, D. C, is descriptive of the various ways in which letters go astray and are never receired by those to whom they were written. Every year 6, 000.000 letters are lost. Akron is mentioned in the article, when reference is made to "difficult puzzles" in addresses. Some of the peculiarities spoken of follow: "There is a peculiar class of ad dresses which can only be accounted for on the ground of association of ideas. Here are some instances of these, all genuine, the letters having been delivered: Waterloo, South Dakota, when Wellington was in tended. It is plain that the writer knew the office to be Wellington.but associating the name of the general with the battle, unconsciously wrote it. Goose Pond, North Carolina, in stead of Duck Creek; Schleswig, Iowa, for Holdstein; Bent Arrow, Nebraska, for Broken Bow, and many others equally as far-fetched. The would-be funny man also con tributes his quota, as Bisonville for Buffalo, Washesingville forChicago, and merely a bar of red ink, follow ed by Erie county, Ohio, thus indi cating the postoffice of Vermillion. A more elaborately disguised ad dress for the Buckeye State consist ed of the person's name followed by a number and the drawing of a tree, then the map of the State, and the city represented by a dot, so that the final reading appeared to bo Kir st., Akron, Ohio."
