He went from church to church, churches of various creeds and different types, some evangelical, some ritualistic, some rationalistic, others engaged In no social activities. And this was his finding, that every type had Its failures and Ita suc cesses. It was no one type as such more than another type which suc ceeded in Interesting men. Men do not go In for evangelistic preaching more than for ritualistic ceremonies, for social service more than rational istic teaching. In every case it was the man in the pulpit who drew men. Where men were found there was found a real personality In the preacher. In every case among all these varied types file human factor en the ministry either drew or failed to draw men." In this connection it should be stated that Dr Matthews very modestly says nothing of him self, of his own personality, but those .of us who know him realise that he Is in many ways an unuanal man. He is a natural born actor, very dramatic, a veritable general, and surrounded by a magnificent body of men who uphold his work and carry out his commands. He Was Needeo.

Full Houses Rule In Seattle Edifice Filled Eleven Years With Audi ences Nearly Seventy Per Cent Men. Chicago. Every earnest pastor la anxious to know how successful min isters fill their churches. This ques tion was put to several pastors of large churches by the Christian Her ald, and the letters were all printed. They are ho valuable and Illuminating that a few of the replies are given bere. The Rev. Dr. W. A. Andrews of Seattle gives the following reasons for his "full house." He says In part: "1. 1 This church has been filled for nearly eleven years. Most of the time it is crowded and scores and hundreds have been turned away. The evening audiences number anywhere from 2,600 to 3,500. We can only seat about 8,000. The rest have to stand or be crowded out. The audience has in it from 65 to 70 per cent of men. 8.

The murderous native organiza tion of Sierra Leone, known all up and down the west coast of Africa as the Human Leopard society, is being re lentlessly pursued by the British au tarltles to its furthermost hiding places. The determination is to extir pate it, but the task will be difficult tor this sinister and baneful associa tion has obtained such a strong grip on the superstitions of the natives in its several hundred years of existence that It will fight and die hard. The society la a secret organisation. It has operated with particular atrocity of recent years tn the northern Sher bro district, and most if not all of the principal natives of this region belong to It Between 30 and SO murders have been committed by members of the society since 1907. The purpose uu 4kut'dly was to provide human flesh ed. 4. We make the gospel apply to every condition, circumstance and point of a man's life. We dealwlth his social, domestic, commercial, po litical and civic life, with the gospel, and only the gospel. 5. Every serv ice Is an evangelistic service. We never preach the gospel or finish a sermon without making an appeal for immediate decisions and confessions of Christ At every service we urge men to accept Christ and Join the church. 6. We do not have a ser monettr, after a long musical pro gram of questionable ecclesiastical music Every member of the choir must be used, but that program is kept in its minor place. The sermons are not dictated by the clock, nor are they closed at the suggestion of some man who would like to hurry through the service. Time enough is taken to present the case of sin, produce conviction In the hearer's mind and ask for the work of the Holy Spirit to produce conversions. 7. Every man, woman and child In this church Is supposed to have something to do, and is required to do the thing as signed. If the churches of the coun try could be lifted from their blight of materialism and could get from un der the control of Godless trustees, Indifferent and lukewarm church of ficers, and could be made to under stand that It Is their business as in dividual Christians to evangelize the world, the pews would be full and the pulpits would be on fire with the love of Gcd and an undying passion for souls." Rev. J. H. Mellsh, rector, Church for their fellow members, but whether this was done merely for the gratifi cation of the taste for cannibalism, or the killings were a part of some secret rite of the organization whereby the natives believe their mental and physical powers are increased has not been conclusively learned. Matters reached such a crisis a few months ago that a special court was appointed and many arrests were made. Among the members placed on trial were sev eral paramount chiefs. Eventually, under a special ordinance passed to suppress the society, seven men were executed for murder, two condemned to life Imprisonment and 11 were ex pelled from the protectorate. In a report on the society and its re cent atrocities the governor of Sierra Leone, Sir Bdward M. Marewether, ex presses the opinion that while his dras tic actions will tend to check the ac tivities of the society, yet the blind belief of the natives In the efficacy of the medicines concocted by the organ isation; the fact that periodical sacri fices are considered necessary to re new the power of the remedies, and a tendency on the part of soma of the She Made Up a Mixture of Sage Tea and Sulphur to Bring Back Color, aloes. Thickness. Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur, properly compound ed, brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray; also ends dandruff, Itching soalp and stops falling hair. Years ago tho only way to get this mixture was to make It at home, which is mussy and troublesome. Nowadays, by asking at any store tor "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy," you will get a large bottle of this famous old recipe for about 50 cents. Don't stay gray! Try It! No one can possibly tell that you darkened your hair, as it does it so naturally and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair disappears, and after another ap plication or two, your hair becomes beautifully dark, thick and glossy.

DIDN'T KNOW That Coffee Was Causing Her Trouble. So common Is the use of coffee as a beverage, many do not know that it is tue cause of many obscure alls which are often attributed to other things. The easiest way to find out for one self is to quit the coffee for a while, at least, and note results. A Virginia lady found out in this way, and also learned of a new beverage that Is wholesome as well as pleasant to drink. She writes: "I am 40 years old and all my life, up to a year and a half ago, I had been a coffee drinker. "Dyspepsia, severe headaches and heart weakness made me feel some times as though I was about to die. After drinking a cup or two of hot coffee, my heart would go like a clock without a pendulum. At other times It would almost stop and I was so nerv ous I did not like to be alone. "If I took a walk tor exercise, aa soon as I was out of sight of the house I'd feel as If I was sinking, and this would frighten me terribly. My limbs would utterly refuse to support o. and the pity of It all was, I did not know that coffee was causing the trou ble. "Reading in the papers that many persons were relieved of such ailments by leaving off coffee and drinking Post- um, I got my husband to bring home a package. We made it according to directions and 1 liked the first cup. Its rich, snappy flavor was delicious.
