Friends of Song (Advertisement) I will call your attention to the gospel as recorded hy St Paul in 1 Cor 14-15. The apostle declares that he will pray with the spirit aud the understanding, and will sing with the spirit and the under? standing also. We find from the above statement used by the inspir? ed writer, that as it is the command of God that all should sing, that all aliould make* conscience of learning to sing, as it is a thing that cannot be decently performed with out learning. The apostle wishes to impress upon thc minds of the peo? ple that it is necessary for them to understand the theory of nnlsic, in order to sing with the spirit and tho understanding. Friends, do foil not know tlmt we can sing down a blessing from heaven.jusl as well as pray it down? And do yon not kiow that we can sing salvaticn into the hearts nf the sinners, friends, just as well as preach it in? \Vh\, c< rl..inlv? for God savs thai his word shall md return void. Now, friends, if this be true, which wc conscientiously believe to be, beyond the shadow of a doubt, then if 0'd's people kin if his word with the spirit and undertdandine', will it not strike conviction to the hearts of the ungodh ? Certainly it will, for God says that, his word shall not return void. I am aware :>f the fact that singing and preach? ing together make a better success. Hut preaching without sinning is always a drag. Now then, I would liJv'H to ask it question right here. Why js it that God's people de? mand decency in every other de* partmentof his worship and do not in this? If we all understand mus? ic we can all look at the same mus? ic and sing to gether without any trouble, lint if we all have ways of singing of our own and they all differ, we cannot possibly sing to? gether. It just creates a babble of confusion and embarrasses the min? ister, so that he cannot, possibly de* liver a good sermon. Ministers all tell us where there is good music they have always found it an easy matter to preach, but on the other hand when instead it is almost au impossibility |;o preach, gild the minister that hay all the preaching, praying and singing to do, can get my sympathy,for it is no easy mat? ter. flu tat the same lime, I must say that most preachers are tu blame for not having better singing in their congregations from the simple fact that they never encour? age people along these lines, but arP inclined to make full proof of their ininlstery. Preachers have good voices, I mean strong, but they need cultivating just as much so as other folks. ' I have known good choirs to start a song and the minister with his superior voice and inferior knowledge of music to lum ju and completely bnmfuzzle the whole choir. Now, friend*, I do not mean to do any discredit to our good gospel ministers, for thev de? serve great credit, bul, probably they have never thought on this ureat and ?ll important subject, Now, if people will have organ* ia their churches, and all churches should he furnished wjih a good organ, for an organ is a (guttle to the singers and a stay to their yoic es. lint I am opposed to place an organ in some secluded c..mer of the church and depending on it with a few singers around it for the music-, but the organ ?1h?u|I be placed as nearly .in Xhe center of the church as possible,and the con? gregation furnished witlr good note books, and then if von have a choir, let it and the organ lead the congregation, and the music will be a grand success. Otherwise, jt panuot possibly be. Jfow, friend*, I am not throwing off on the min? isters, but I do think that they should pay more attention to this part of the worship, for it means something to God's people. Sing? ing has. always been defined as au ordance of Divine worship inwhich we express our joy in God and grat? itude for his mercy. It was prac? ticed by the people of God before tbe giving of the law of Moses Exo 15 ch. It is particularly enji\ed under the gospel dispensation-Eph 5, lu Co! 3, 10. St Paul sa>s let the word of God dwell in you richly with all wis? dom teaching (Ute another in p>alm and Ii y tn us aud spiritual songs singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. We find that singing was practiced by Christ and his disciples. Matthew 20, 30, and again we find it practiced by the people of God, under the reign of king David, and he was a man af? ter God's own heart. King David trained 4,000 people in the house of God to ling and pray for the dedication of the temple at Jeruse? lem and they were all sanctified people, too. When the temple was dedicated, the 4,000 singers and players stood at the east end of the (iltar with 400 trumpeters extra and they were so well trained that they were to be beard abroad as one man singing and playing. Now this seems to me that they were prettv well up on music.does? n't it. The "ffrct of the niu*;e ?n? Sjreat ax they came over the Merila for the Lord is* good. Iii- m?rc\ tMidurrtli forever. Th.-re was a (load of glory flooded I lie house so immensly that the ministers or priests could not pt a nd to speak for the glory of the Lord had filled the house. Praise His mime forever. Fill! w>:s under the reign of King David, the sweet sluger of Israel, 1 Uhro 23 and 25 chapters, 2 Chro 5 jhaptei. I am aware of the fa-t I hat some of our ministers object lu what they call scientific singing but the time has c*nie ami now is when people have to pay more at lenti -n to this part of the worship, for God demands of us that we worship him intelligently accord? ing to 1 Cor 14, 15. Many times when we feel cold and selfish a -ong will break the monotony, and turu our tl'oughts heavenward-. There should h.. thought in song us we|l a> vibration. \ have known the pase where sorqe good christian would (dog alone aud it would touch the heart of some poor Mir ner, aud cause him to reflect and turn to God. When all thut the minister could do or say would not change his heart. May the Lord help us all to profit with the tal? ents he has given us. Does not the divine word tcaeh us to grow in grace and it. (he knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ? Certainly it does, and that is what it means to cultivate these wonder? ful talent He has given us to profit with. I know that music becomes false and inperfections when it is not in its proper place, lint that is no excuse for not learning lo sing floe's praise intel ligently. Do not let the devil haye all the good mus jp, when, a perishing worJd is dying for the want of spiritual ?ongs.Now let me give you a definition of the word music, Jt u a bright and glorious gift of God, the reflection of the heavenly harmonies.in which his angels and all the celestial hosts ever praise and glorify their creator, singing in sweet strains. Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Al? mighty, God over all and blest eter* ni ty, Mn?ic is God's richest gift to man. Hut, not only that, what a source of artistic and intellectual pleasure it brings to us. Music is at home a ft lend, abroad an intro duction, in solitude a solace and iii society au ornament. The best means of culture is music, It not only fits us for the highest duties of life, but it cultivates within us f la^te J Of the good, thu pure aud the beautiful. It Inspire* us with lofty aspirations for noble deeds aud actions. As an art study it is a wonderful educator. Music is a universal language. Mav theLord help all of God's people everywhere to cultivate this wondeaful talent that God has bestowed upon them. T|iat great divine, Dr. Jonathan Edwards observes that where there if no natural inability to sing and people neglect to learn to sing as a general thing live in sin, because they neglect an ordance of God on them, that is calculated to further them on toward the Kingdom of Glory. Hut some of our minuter* sav that it ia making tlie house of God a house of mer? chandise to teach music in it, but is it not a fact that it is just as much of a fault to pay our minis? ters for preaching the gospel as it is to pay some good man to teach us to sing the gospel. I say that it is am] \ sav it upon the authori? ty of God's divine word. I could give m'auv infallible proofs of the fact that it is God's command to sing with the understanding, but lime and space would fail me. Remember this old world which began with so sweet a serenade of music is finally to be demolished amidst the ringing blasts of the ark angel's trumpet so as there was .music at the first there shall be music at f.he close. I will close by saying that I hope the world, tho great school in which we are all scholars will find ns faithful in nil th*> good lessons we have to learn. In short, in av we make our lives a grand success and tte admitted to a higher school in the life to come. \Va\hid: Ihoughls bv, P. W A I, HOG AST, Crabbotioui, Va. MEDICAL DELUSIONS [MANY 8TILL UNGER FROM THE DAR* AGES OF CREDULITY. .?uprrat'tiona RefrnrdlnK Reanedlet i For Dleeasae on the Lower Eaat Side I Ia New York?Preacrlptlona of th? Old Time Apothecaries. ! An east sider in lower New York suf? fering from acute rheumatism was taken to the Postgraduate Medical j School and Hospital wearing a pair ot eels, long defunct and dried, by way [of garters. He showed much distress when they were removed by the nurse, being firmly convinced they would cure his rheumatism in time. The laugh of science to the contrary notwithstanding, medical delusions in [surprising number still survive from the ages of faith. Any physlelan who practices among the poor and ignorant can testify to this, and lt is in partieu Jar thesstaff and students of an inst! tutlon like the Postgraduate Medical School and Hospital, which receives its patients largely from the lower east side, a quarter teeming with variety, who are made to appreciate most fully the extent of superstition regarding remedies for disease. Italian immigrants are peculiarly in terestlng in this respect. They fre quently attribute stomach trouble tc cat's hairs supposed to have been swal? lowed and persist In eating eggshells to cure it. They also eat snails as a remedy for consumption, though here they are supported by a highly respect? able authority?that of "The Aceom pushed Physician," published in 1056, which declare:, that snail water, "ow? ing to the cool, clammy and glutinous substance of tho snail," is particularly grateful to the consumptive. These Italians use castor oil whenever theil feelings become at all excited, either by Joy or sorrow, burn rolls of waxed paper in their ears to cure the earache aud willingly go through the oven more heroic treatment of lighting tires od their bare stomachs when they have dyspepsia. Tho trouble with these people ls mere? ly that they have not advanced with tho times, but are still holding beliefs which aro held by the most Intelligent and best educated men of a few cen? turies ago. An apothecary's shop lu Queen Elizabeth's time was stocked Witta things that strike moderns as sin? gular ?nough, consldeied as medicine. These wee crabs' claws, foxes' lungs, stags' heai'tc. boars' tusks, sea horses' teeth, elks' hoofs, precious stones In powder, flying tish; tortoises, alligators, dried toads, worms, scorpions and even human mummies. These latter were quite popular as a remedy for epilepsy v vertigo aud palsy, besides being sup^ posed to heal wounds and mortifica? tions. Mummy cost 5s. 4d- a pound, or $1.28 in our money, and was a recog? nized staple of commoreo. but. being so expensive, au, artificial substitute was Invented which ls described by C'rolllus la bis "Royal Chemist" as calling for "the carcass of a young man. some say red headed, not dying of disease, but killed." It ls probable that this ghast? ly recipe was responsible for many of the mysterious, disappearances common, in. those thrilling days- Human skulls so^d for as much as ll shillings, apiece and were given in the form of a pow? der, mixed with a little oil. The most highly esteemed prescript Hons of the old time apothecary wore those which cost the. most audi which must needs, therefore. Include pow? dered precious stokes. v,<*ascon's pow? der" was quo of the most costly of' those medicaments, being prescribed by the great physicians for their more important patients. It cost 40 shillings ($9.00) an ounce and was made In. equal part rs of crabs' eyes, pearls, white amber, oriental bezoar and the black tips of crabs' claws. Precious stones, too, were thought to have much efficacy when worn as amu? lets. The ruby protected Its wearer from plague and pestilence, the ame? thyst kept a man steady and sober, bloodstones stopped bleeding, the onyx prevented epilepsy, the topaz, cured in? flammation, the opal strengthened weak eyes, and the emerald prevented foolishness and aided the memory. Con cerning thc emerald an old writer fur? ther testifies: "It takes away vain and foolish fears, as of devils and hobgob? lins, folly ami anger, and causeth good conditions; if it do so worn about one, reason will tell him that being beaten into powder and taken Inwardly lt will ,do much more." The use of herbs uud plants as medi? cines, of course, agrees with modern practice; but the old physicians made ''the mistake of considering them as pos? sessing seml-tnagicnl properties. It was believed that they were the dwelling places of good and evil spirits which worked their good and evil wills upon those who touched them. The old rhyme says: Trefoil, vervain. John's wort, dill Hinders witches of their will. And these four plants had extraordi? nary reputations In the middle ages for both natural and supernatural powers, ?The trefoil ls common lu the United; States today, especially In the south. Jand has certain legitimate medical properties. The vervain ls allied to our native verbena and was anciently be? lieved to, be effective against all poi? sons and the venom of serpents, as well os against bewitched drinks and the like. It was also cflicaclous for witch? craft. Anne Bodcnham, the celebrated witch of Salisbury, used to send her pupils Into the fields to gather vervain und dill. The sun worshipers of Persia always carried vervain when they ap? proached their altars. They gathered Jt. when there wae neither sun nor WOOn and poured a libation of honey UpxMi tho earth In reparatllon for their robbery. St. John's wort was called "Fuga demonlum" In the old days, 1; oca uso it routed evil spirits. It WM a common Ingredient of magical con? coctions and ls still gathered with wueh BtftWartbf for vour home paper Only $1 per \e..\t. i ceremony by the peasantry of France I and Germany when St. John's day j (June 24) comes around. Solomon's seal was another of the wonder working plants, said to be tho herb which Solomon used to cure epi? lepsy by placing lt In a ring applied tc the nostrils of the patient, from which circumstance arose the popularity of the magical ring or seal that flgures in so many eastern tales. Curious stories are told of the man? drake, a scion of the potato family, the fruit of which used to be called the "love apple" (a name later applied to the tomato), no doubt because to eat of it generously produced temporary in? sanity. It was much used in love phil? ters to awaken the tender passion, and the most efficacious specimens were obtained from the vicinity of gibbets, where evil doers swung by the neck. There was but one way to gather the mandrake, under pain of death for mis? take, since the belief was that it groan? ed aloud when pulled from the ground and that whoever heard the sound fell dead on the spot. The custom was to fasten a dog by the tall to the plant and beat him until In his struggles he tore up the mandrake by the roots. .The person superintending the opera? tion had his cars stopped with pitch and so escaped, but the dog, for which the same precaution was not taken, heard the groan and died. Extraordinary cures were accom? plished by some familiar flowers in the olden times. The anemone was thought by the ancients to bc an emblem of disease, and Pliny says that physicians recommended that the first anemone seen in the spring should be picked and concealed In a scarlet cloth until sick? ness came, requiring that it should be hung around the neck. Thc juice of the forgetmenot was credited with the power of hardening steel until no met? al could resist lt. The peony was used by Paeon, the famous physician of an? cient Greece, from whom lt takes its name, to cure wounds. Demons were supposed always to flee from the spot where it grew. The elder tree also had some remark? able properties. An old writer declares that "if oue travel with two little sticks of elder in his pocket he shall not fret nor pant, lot the horse go nev? er so hard." A piece of an elder brauch cut out between two knots used to be worn around the neck to cure erysipe? las, and In the Tyrol today elder bush? es are planted on new graves lu the form of a cross, lt being believed that they will blossom lu due time If the soul formerly Inhabiting the body lying underneath has been received into par udlsc.?New York Tribune. GROWING PAINS. / Ache* In Children That Should lt>~ Celvc Serious Attention. The evil that may be caused by a phrase is well exemplified by the term "growing pains." Many a cripple to? day oves lils misfortune to the fact that the mst syi.vuto**in ot his dteeuse were misinterpreted. The recurring pains of which he complained, which. | caused him to limp at times or to cry ? out In his sleep, were called by his parents growing pains and were thought to signify nothing more than the effort of nature to mljust the grow? ing bones and muscles and sinews to each, other. Of course every child has innumera? ble little aches aud pains, the result of fatigue, slight sprains, stone bruises aud the like, and lt is well the fond par? ents should not take too much notice of them, lest they foster a disposition in the child to worry over Illnesses. The cause of such occasional pains ls usually epparmt, and a night's rest or a day lu the house will dispel lt. But when tho pain recurs from time to time without evident cause, or when ordi? nary romping during the day ls fol? lowed by a night of aching, and per? haps a limp for a day or two, it is pos? sible that there ls some serious under? lying cause and the family physician should be consulted. Frequent complaint of pain lu the knee ls one of the sigus of beginning hip disease, but examination shows thi* knee to be apparently, sound, and sea 1 *~ the home diagnosis of growing pains. ls made, and the real trouble in the hip ls overlooked, often until lt ls toft late to prevent permanent lameness. Although not called growing pains, repeated attacks of stomach ache la children should not be slighted, for they may be a symptom of early spinal1 disease The complaint of pain in the stomach, when not referable to green apples or u surfeit of pastry, especially when the complaint ls made at the close of tho day or during the night, should excite suspicion and If often re? peated should Indicate the necessity of a careful examination of the spine. Growing pains may be due to rheuma? tism, which,;If not detected and cor? rectly treated, may lead to disease of the heart. A less serious trouble, but one de? manding medical treatment, which may cause an aching In the limbs, is ma? laria. This ls a dangerous diagnosis, for If Incorrect it muy be as serious in Its consequences us taut of growing pains, and even If the child has had an unmis? takable attack of malaria the parent should not bc content with that expla? nation of Its aches and pains, but should refer the matter to the doctor. It should always be remembered that growth ls a normal process and should uo moro be accompanied by pain than digestion or breathing.?Youth's Com? panion. Her Little Mlatake.
