CALENDARS FOR 18S6 given and mailed free of postage. Birmingham, ala. Branch of J. L. Challfoux. Lowell. Mass. (All items of social Interest will be gladly noted in these columns if sent to Mrs. George C. Hall, Nineteenth street, between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, South High lands. Telephone !>S8.) For many weeks there has been dis cussed in the columns of the New York World the matter of the appropriate ages of men and women contemplating matri mony, or rather the difference in years that should exist between husband and wife. Of course the opinons are as diverse as the years, and when the ver dict of the jury is rendered as to the best written letter on the subject the condition of humanity will remain as it has since the time of Adain and Eve. In other words, talk as we may, argue as we please, we do not alter that law' of the universe which makes men fall in love with women and women fall in love with men without regard ofttimes to age or any other condition. Even if a matrimonial commission was established, with abso lute power, in all probability there would result no greater happiness than now obtains in the world. We all have our theories, our pet projects for the improve ment of humanity, but it is doubtful if any one of these would really add to the advancement of the race. Men and women will continue as long.as the years endure to fall in love without rhyme or reason and to marry each other regard less of any rules that common sense sug gests. The question now being discussed in the New' York World is whether tl lliusband should be five or ten years older than the wife, and hundreds of letters have been written in favor of one or the other. While there are fewer mistakes more grievous than that of a man marry ing a woman older than himself (and each one of us can recall fatal blunders of this kind), still a few of the happiest marriages of this generation have been of this incongruous nature. Of course, these rare instances came about because of remarkable mental aflinity and an inexplicable magnetism one possessed foe the other. So no unchangeable, unchang ing rule can be made to regulate the affections or the actions of our fellow creatures. Love is the one subtle, in describable sentiment, a magnetism, if you please, that pays little attention to years or conditions. Perhaps this Is a pity, perhaps it is not. Who can decide this matter? * • • "The Highlanders" will give a holiday cotillion on next Tuesday evening at the Florence hotel. * • * Mr. and Mrs David Roberts will en tertain the Duplicate Whist club and its husbands this evening • * • The members of the Thursday Evening Euchre club will be the guests of Hon. and Mrs. A.

With a few exceptions, the entertainments were confined to rani ilv gatherings. Every one seemed happy and content, and the churches were well attended. Th“ Roman Catholic churches were handsomely decorated, and the con gregations were unusually large. The music was fine In all the churches. At the Advent Prof. Boyce and the full vest ed choir rendered a beautiful musical programme. This elegant church was ! beautifully decorated with holly, mistle toe and smllax. Rev. Dr. Board preached a brief hut forceful sermon upon the incarnation of Christ and the dangerous tendency toward unbelief in the divinity of our Lord. At St.-Mary s-on-the-High lands the decorations were elaborate and in exquisite taste. Cedar, holly and wild smilax predominated. Ropes of evergreens reached from the center chan delier to the comers of the church, and from the arch of the chancel to the low-ei< walls. Wild smllax etched graceful de signs against the window's and w'alls, find the vases on the altar held splendid white roses. Over the altar burned the Star and all the altar decorations were in white cloth, beautifully embroidered. Rev. Mr. Fitzslmons preached an ex ceedingly eloquent sermon, taking for his sub.lect the "Song of the Angels.” The music was very fine, wdth Prof. Guekenherger at the organ. The Te Deum by the quartette, Miss Bridew-eli, Mrs Guekenherger and Messrs. Gillies and' Smith, and the offertory hy Mrs. Guekenherger were splendidly rendered. The beautiful decorations of the church were under the direction and manage ment of Mrs. Sterling Lanier and the altar guild. Children Cry for Pitcher’s Castoria.

The latest wrinkle in the shoe line In this part of the country is going to be worked by Drennen & Co., the mammoth general merchants of this city, who do a big business with the country and labor trade. They have ordered from the J. B. Lewis company of Boston a large con signment of shoes. Each shoe will be numbered and with each shoe, corre spondingly numbered, goes an accident insurance policy of $100. The customer pays $3 for a pair of shoes and gets with It this policy, which guarantees him $100 Indemnity If he gets hurt within three months after the purchase of the shoes, which are guaranteed to last that time, so that two birds are killed with one stone—the purchaser Is liable to be out of shoes and Insurance policy about the same time and thus desire the renewal of both. The Insurance policies are Is sued by an insurance company, with whom the J. B. Lewis company has a contract to that end, and will be directly responsible for loss on the same. Dren nen & Co. say they are going to adver tise the scheme very extensively, and hope, for the furtherance of trade, that the first man to buy a pair of shoes will got hurt, so as to receive the $100 on the Insurance policy and help the project. It is decidedly the most novel scheme ever introduced in this city, although Birmingham 1h by no means behind the world in such matters, and bids fair to fill the mines, furnaces and farms in Jef ferson county with the $3 shoe of the J. B. Lewis company. Money to Lend.

Private Medical Dispensary Steiner Bank Building, Corner First Avenue and Twenty first Street, Birmingham, Ala. The Oldest, Best Equipped and Most Successful in the South. Office Hours—8:30 a. m. to 12 m , 1:30 to 5:30 p, m* A Specialist treats only a special or particular class of diseases. I have the distinction of being the only physician In the South controlling sufficient practice In Private Dis eases to devote my whole time to their cure. This daily contact for year after year with suoh troubles gives experience. Experience is essential to success. My Medical Dispensary was established In the city of Birmingham August 8, 1887, for the exclusive cure of Private Diseases. Privacy is one of its special features. It Is so arranged that one patient never necessarily sees another. Peoplo who have social rela tions to sustain appreciate this. The very best of people are often unfortunate and dislike to consult their family physicians through feelings of delicacy. To them I offer a safe, sure cure and perfect privacy. SYPHILIS—Many physicians claim that this disease cannot be cured—that Is, en tirely eradicated from the system. I am willing to contract with any responsible person on the basis of no cure no pay. This is the way I guarantee cures. GONORRHOEA—If you have Gonorrhoea, Gleet, Lucorrhoea, Whites or any other troublesome discharge that fails to get well under ordinary treatment, come or write to me. If I fail to cure you I don’t want your money. URETHRAL STRICTURE cured on the same terms. The treatment Is painless. I perform all manner of surgical operations pertaining to my specialty, and through the influence of anesthetics cause no pain. This Is a boon to the afflicted. There are many complications following Private Diseases, such as Bad Blood, Skin, Bladder and Womb Troubles, Ulcers, Pimples, Blotches, Sore Mouth, etc., all of which quickly get well when the cause is removed. I wish to call special attention to my treatment of unfortunates suffering from the effects of Early Imprudence, Errors of Youth, Loss of Vitality, Loss of Manhood. Sex ual Debility, or any of the maddening effects. Get well and be a man. Enjoy life as you should. Thousands of men and youths are occupying subordinate positions In life today who, If they were able to exercise their brain power to Its fullest capacity, would instead be leaders. In a majority of cases I can cure my patients by mail treatment. I can furnish med icines from my Dispensary, or as I am a Regular Licensed Physician, I can write them prescriptions. If they prefer they can have them prepared by their home druggist. If you live in or near the city, call at my Private Dispensary. If at a distance, write me your trouble. My book on Private Diseases and proper question lists will be sent on application. ADVERTISING—A Specialist should advertise. His patients are scattered over a large extent of territory, and It Is right and proper »or him to use the help of the news papers to let them know where they can get the relief they desire. ewspaper Reputations. I have received many complimentary notices from various papers, and I have had a few of them printed In my advertisements, but wishing to exclude everything that might possibly deceive anyone, I have omitted them. They are deceptive. They read as if they were personal endorsements of one’s character or ability, but they are not. Tho editor In many Instances does not even know you. They are given either In considera tion of a liberal contract for advertising or for cash direct at bo much per line. You can buy them and have all you wish to pay for. You can have them say Just what you please, then you can put them In your regular advertisement, as they are your prop erty. Stop and think a moment. Did you ever see one about a doctor that did not ad vertise? Ask the editor of any paper if the above Is not the trutll, pure and simple.
