tion on Subject
The Rev, F. M. 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,

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.

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 *

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.
