Klrkus, rector of rinlty P. li Church, has written the ollowlng letter to hfa congregation Yelatlve to the observance of I.ent: Another Lent is close at hand, with Hs call for every Christian to cease, Headache For Years "I keep Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills on hand all the time, and would not think of taking a journey without them, no mat ter how short a distance I am I have a sister that has going. had terrible headaches for years, and I coaxed her to try them and they helped her so much, •she now keeps them by her all the time. From my own exper ience I cannot praise them enough." MRS. LOU M. CHURCHILL, 63 High st., Penacook, N. H. Many persons have headache after any little excitement or ex ertion. They cannot attend church, lectures, entertainments, or ride on trains without suffer ing. Those who suffer in this way should try Dr. Miles' Anti Pain Pills. They give almost instant relief without leaving any disagreeable after-effects, as they do not derange the stomach or bowels; just a pleasurable sense of relief follows their use. Get a package from your drug gist. Take it according to direc tions, and if it does not benefit he will return your money. 1 as far as possible, those exacting social engagements and diversions which crowd our time at ordinary seasons, iand to devote the leisure thus obtain cd to spiritual exercises, and a more frequent attendance upon the public (services of the Church. I wish that for once at least we cou ld Induce In Trinity Parish a really enthusiastic observance of Lent by every one of Its members. One is con stantly meeting people who say "they do not see the use." How can they when they have never given tho matter a good trial? By a sort of general consent. large entertainments are discontinued in so ciety during the Lenten Season, but many people substitute small ones (what they call "quiet little affairs") In their stead, and thus fill their time as full as ever. That is a curious form of self-deception indeed, which rtrues this into a way of keeping Lent; when as a matter of fact almost every body gets a great deal more enjoyment out of small entertainments than from large ones. ' But It Is only one of the indications of a general misunderstanding as to ; what the purpose of Lent really Is. Observing Lent does not consist In "giving up" things. The rule of abstl ncnce which is part of Its observance Is only a means to an end. There Is an ancient saying to the effect that fulness of bread Indicates absence of contrition." but we all know perfectly ; well that that is not necessarily true., The exacting demands w-hich are con stantly made upon our eherg.v and 1 strength In this strenuous twentieth century render "fasting" an almost im possible exercise; though they also make H extremely advisable to live way of luxuries and to simplify and economize our habits of life in * ssTdènw r .« 1 ôf*thf u «t h r T rc, r I" seir-cieniai are or the utmost value to «lorvRBflv _ 4 . 1 XT .. a ÂÎ tSSTJS (SUS £ sires during the forty days of I.ent. helps us to bo resigned and brave and patient In those experiences which come sooner or later to all of us when! we are called to resign or to forego gifts and blessings which seem almost vital to our happiness and welfare. But the positive purpose of Lent is to build us up in holiness of life, and to that end the Church appoints certain "extraordinary exercises of devotion." The abstinences recommended during Lent, therefore, are In order that our time and thoughts may be free for a profitable use of those exercises which the Church provides for us. as well as a more, rigorous and systematic habit of private devotions. In Trinity Church the usual çrder of services will be adopted, as announced on another page; and I feel sure that If we would all make a rule of consuien con tiously observing them with the utmost possible regularity, and with the deter mination to get out of them some gen nine spiritual help, Lent would bring to each of us individually and to our parish as a whole a qulto Incalculable blessing.
