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
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.
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
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.
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
The Teacher Taught.

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.'
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
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?"

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.
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
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
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,
in a
fresh supply. Do not
near a lamp or fire.
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,
And do you long to leave me?"
