Christmas Day marked the fiftieth anniversary of the first mass that was * offered in St. Mary’s Catholic Church, f of this city, the Rev. William H. 1 Gross, C. SS. R., officiating as cele- 1 brant. It is proposed by the pastor, * the Rev. Joseph P. Nolan, to cele- ' brate the Golden Jubilee of the ' church the first Sunday in June. The f summer time has been selected on ac- ( count of the weather in December 1 being usually of an inclement nature, * which would interfere with the at- * tendance.

Too Weak to Wear Coat—Couldn’t Speak Above Whisper—Bear’s Emulsion Cured Him. John D. Bear, Elkton, Va. Dear Sir: Eight years ago I was a great sufferer from weakness, weak lungs and pleurisy and coughed night and day and raised and expectorated a quart in 24 hours. I had as many as four or five night sweats in one night, my pulse would run as high as 140 and my temperature was about 103. I was so weak I could hardly walk to the dining-room. I had no appetite and everything I saw nauseated me. X coulden’t stand the weight of my coat on my shoulders, and could not speak above a whisper at times. I was in one of the best sanitariums in the South, but seemed to be growing worse every day and was about to give up when a friend asked me to try Bear’s Emulsion. I did so and had taken it but two days when I be gan to improve. My appetite im proved, and I felt stronger, I coughed very little, my lungs stopped hurting me and it was not long until I could : walk two miles a great deal easier than I could walk around the sanita rium before taking the Petroleum Emulsion. I took 18 bottles and to day I am a well man and owe a great deal to Emulsion. Sincerely, C. T. Harnsberger.
