' - 45 North Broadway. Glasses accurately fitted. The Editor of Record ran recommeud Dr. I'enn. The Woman's Guild. The Guild has sent $50 to the beautiful new church, St. Mary's, at Middlesborough. .Through special contributions, aided by the Guild Treasury thev entertained a number of delegates to the Y.M. C. A. . Convent'on in February. They also gave a reception to the visiting ministers at the Rectory, furnishing a bountiful luncheon. The font for the Church of the Good Shepherd is under considera tion, the Lenten contributions to go towards the purchase. The Employment Bureau have cut and made one hundred garments up to date of report. The Coal Com mittee have issued one hundred and four bushels to sixteen families since last report. The mission called, THE WOMAN'S FRIENDLY SOCIETY, mentioned in the February issue of the Record, is doing ? vast amount of good. The ladies who have consecrated themselves to this no ble work meet the mothers among tho poor every Friday afternoon at the Church of the Good Shep herd; on South Broadway. Mrs. Elira Woodward, whose purse is never closed, gave five dollars to start the plan. With this material was bought for plain garments. The women are taught to cut and make these garments, each one earning and owning her piece when finished. The young girls who come are taught to knit. The in terest is increasing at these meet ings. There were four mothers at first and now there are ten. The primary object is not to clothe the naked. How much easier forthese delicately reared teachers to send a garment. It is to teach the nak ed to clothe themselves; to mend, to build up, and not pull down. To so educate the taste lor personal cleanliness, for home adorning, however simple, as will infuse am bition into the families. THE CHAPEL is chosen for the meetings because it is common ground. Even among the poor we find caste. To us they are the poor, the great unwashed. Among themselves there are dis tinctions. There are gradations from the genteelly needy to the poverty striken, the moneyless, the abject, the pauper, the beggar. To our uneducated senses the lines seem finely drawn. Go among these unfortunates and we find things not drearapt of in our phil osophy. Friends, send cast-off garments to this grand mission to be made over. Send garden seeds now so that these mothers of fami lies may be encouraged to plant a little patch of ground that will yield. Help any movement that will instill pride and self-respect. That will cleanse the root of the evil. That will teach the religion of decency, and of order. The Sick. It is impossible to estimate the suffering among the poor unless you go in person to their hovels of wretchedness. There are erood women in this city who devote a part of every week to penetrating these haunts of misery and alle viating as far as may be practica- i ble. And there is a higher class ; of sick in the scale of worldly prosperity to whom the alms of your presence would come like a ray of generous sunshine. It is not alone the body that needs healing and refreshing. Young Men's Christian elation. Asso- At the recent grand convention of this association in Lexington, the leaders raised about three thousand dollars to establish the work in this city. The programme during the three days of the sess ion was full ot instructive and pleasing speeches, interspersed with songs. The churches aided in hospitality of bed and board. It was shown how the association re ceives the young man with an eye to his improvement; physically, by means of athletic and gymnastic sports; intellectually, by means of instructive text-books and improv ing literature; spiritually, by means of the Bible training class and the personal iulfuence of Christian men; socially, by the warm, wel coming home atmosphere of the assembly rooms. THE CONVIVIALITY of the paloon is a prime incentive to its seductive pleasures. Supply this good fellowship among games and conversation and innocent good cheer. Tho church should supersede the necessity for any such association; but unfortnnately the church does not. If man be the gregarious animal he is called, there must be more than the mere routine cold sympathy of theology to fix his wandering steps. Our April issue may contain definite plans of the good work to be done here. The Teacher Taught. BY e. d. p. A tiny lad among rough boys, With golden hair and Fauntleroys, He took his place at A. B. C. Beside the gentle teacher's knee. "Now, what is that' my little man?" She pointed, 'tell me, if you can," ''Oh, no, I can't; for don't you see? I came for you to tell it me.' Misunderstood. A deaf old lady riding in an electric car became much alarmed because of a blockade, and asked a young woman n,ext to her what had happened. "There is no danger," replied the young woman. "Remember that a kind heaven bends over all." The old lady turned to her companion and inquired in a vexed tone, "Mary Ellen, wat's that young lady saying to me about men's overalls?"

Miss Kate Drexel, of Philadel phia, who was received as a no vitiate into the Roman Catholic Church as Sister Catherine a year ago, took her final vows in Feb ruary, when she gave her fortune estimated at $8,000,000, tothe order of the ''Sisters of the Most Holy Sacrament," recently found ed by her. Kind Words The Apostolic Guide of two weeks ago gives the Record a very generous and flattering notice. When we can increase oar funds we shall hope to deserve the highest commendation. Please remember the $1 you owe for The Record. IIInUtoGlrlN. If you do not try to make your self look as pretty as you can you neglect one of your duties. It is worth while to make the most of all the good looks you pospeas; but that docs not mean that you should revel in powder and pur chased bloom, or spend hours in frivolous decoration. To have a clear skin, remember that you must have good health, and to have good health and a rosy com plexion you must wear thick soled shoes and spend a part of every day out of doors. If you use powder of any kind on the face never go to bed with out washing it off. Sanitary rea sons as well as cleanliness require this. To keep your skin from roughening find by trial what soap suits you best, and use no other. Frequent changes of soap are bad for the complexion. Be ware of those which are highly scented; as a general thing they are of poor quality, the scent be ing used to destroy the odor of the other ingredients used. If you would keep your face and hands unwrinkled use tepid water; very hot or cold water is 1 injurious. Also avoid burying the face in a soft pillow at night, which always produces wrinkles around the eyes. A wash which removes the sun burn acquired by out-door sports is made by adding to twelve ounces of elder-flower water six drachms of powdered borax; ap ply to the skin, it will make it as clear and solt as a baby's. .Keep your combs and brushes sweet and clean. Wash them in tepid water containing a few drops of ammonia. The grease and soil will disappear as if by magic. Place the brushes bris tles down to dry, and delicate cel luloid handles will not be injured. To perfume your apparel put a few drops on email ' pieces of pumice-stone, and place in draw and boxes and among dresses in wardrobes. By using the following prepa ration for cleaning kid gloves, ribbons and laces you can keep the above mentioned articles in the "pink of perfection" with lit tle trouble: To two quarts of deodorized benzine add two drachms of sulphuric ether, two drachms of chloroform and four drachms of alcohol. Put the fluid in a bowl and wash the arti cles as it in water, rinsing in a this fresh supply. Do not near a lamp or fire. use Stepping Heavenward. BY E. D. P. ,'I'd like to go to Heaven, ma," "Oh, darling, don't; you grieve me, Say, aren't you happy with me, dear? And do you long to leave me?" "Oh yes, oh no, mama, down here, Who earns rewards ne'er reapi them, Up there, the catechism s;fys, God makes preserves and keeps them." t
