Frederick Sobievera has done some
food work on the West Side this week.
Considering the inclement weather,
the attendance has been remarkable
and the people regret his doparture to
the central part of the city.
Mr. Schievera is prepossessing, has a
pleasing address, a beaming counte
nance, a heart fnll of sympathy for
humanity. He is a flnentspeHker.makes
good use of an illustration, feels deeply
every touching scene he portrays and
vividly pictures it to the audience.
He is an enthusiast, never shoots over
the beads of his audience, has consid
erable mother wit aud his warm benrt
edness makes him a friend nnd a
brother to all he reaches.
Fred Sebievera before the year 1870
aspired to the stage, and was employed
in a variety show. That winter he at i
tended the Moody meetings in Brook
lyn and was converted. He instantly
obanged his life and before long be
gan to preach the Gospel in the high
ways, where Evangelist Pentecost, of
New York city, saw him, and called
him to conduct one ot bis missions.
From this work D. L. Moody called
bitn to condaet meetings in bis tent in
Chicago, and never has Mr. Moody
seen a worker more successful in reach
ing the masses. He has been in the
work now seventeen years, and the
success that has crowned bis labors in
this valley ia a veritable type of the
work done by him all over the Unitod
States and Canada. After another two
weeks' work in onr city be will leave
for Montreal with the confident expec
tation that he will again find his wuy
to preaoh to the thousands of our val
The good of conventions has gener
ally felt in increased inspiration and
consecration among the members of
tbe church where they are held. These
blessings do not generally radiate
throughout the societies that form the
association. Tbey seem to die away
before tbe member at a distance is
touched, while the local church is gen
1 erally revived. The faet has been ob
served by some of the Sunday school
workers of tbe Green Ridge Biptist
churob, and tbey are about to try a
scheme that is calculated to inspire the
individual worker in tbeir society. On
tbe last Sunday in September tbey will
dispense with the regular lesson and
hold a convention, when various phases
of the Sunday school work will be de
bated. This will give each teacher
nnd scholar a clear idea of the wor k
that is expected of them, and they, it
is hoped, will be filled with greater
Esal to perform tbe tame.
Tbe Penn Avenue Baptist chnrch it a
joyf nl mother of children. This week
she gave her benediction to ber fourth
daughter, the Danmore Baptist chnrch,
which is now an independent organiza

the Calvary Baptist church of Taylor for
three years and has done good work. It is
one of the several Cambro-Amencan
chnrcbes that have been organized in the
valley of late years. The nucleus of this
organization was composed of a band of
young people who left the Welsh Baptist
chnrch of their town. When Mr. Harris
took charge there were fifty -nine members
enrolled, today tney are about 200 commu

The educational and industrial classes
of the Young Women's Christian asso
ciation of the central city, with tbe
gymnasium classes, will be opened the
first week in October. Instruction will
be given in weekly classes iti common
brunches reading, writing, spelling,
arithmetic and in rhetoric, physiology,
geography, physical geography, alge
bra, grammar, tewing, mending, but
ton-hole making, chart cutting and
millinery. The Chautauqua Circle will
resume its regular meetings next
month. A large number enjoyed the
study last year and many more can
find a place in the circle on applica
tion. Iustrnction in any of these lines
of study can be seanred by payment of
DO cents in addition to the yearly mem
bership dnes of $1. The Shakespeare,
art and German classes will be opened
later, but placet ia the olasses can be
secured now.
Vocal music and cooking classes will
be formed if sufficient numbeit make
application. Tbe gymnasium offers
extra inducements to the young women
this season. The price of tickets has
been lowered to to non-members and
$2 to members, entitling the bolder to
one lesson a week for seven months.
Mist L. Lois Shardlow, the efficient
director of last season will be in fnll
charge of the work thit year. The
work of tbe classes as demonstrated by
tbe exhibition brought only words of
praise and approbation from parents of
pupils and the pbysieians of onr city.
Clerks, dressmakers, teachers and stu
dents will find that one evening spent
every week in tbe gymnasium would
be of untold benefit. Morning classes
for housewives and afternoou classes
for Misses and Saturday classea for
children will afford all on opportunity
to take advantage ot thit rare chance
to gain and possess a strong physique.

One of the many good features of the
Yonng Men's Christian association
evening school is its complete business
course in charge of Professor A F.
Tappen. Professor Tappen is an ex
perienced teacher of this department
and will this year be aided by a com
petent assistant.
An entire suite of three large rooms
will beset apart for the business course
and fonr recitations a week will be
given. This gives evening students
two nights a week for exercise in the
gymnasium, or any other desired oe
cpnation. The secretaries at the office
are busy enrolling new members and
getting ready for the big opening
reception on Thursday evening, Sept.
There is no institution outside of the

adopted by the educational committee,
and is free to members. It may be
completed in one year by giving two
evenings a week, or in two years by
giving one evening each week.

age, writing; Thnrsiay, reading and
spelling based on reading, elements of
grammar, common forms, letter writ

will be granted to those who complete
a course in higher arithmetic or alge

Graduating exercises will close the
year, and diplomat will be awarded by
the committee.
A cooking class will be organizsd,
the members of which will be given in
structions in preparing and serving a
series of breakfasts, luncheons, dinners
and tappers. It is proposed to close the
class by a banquet, prepared and served
by class membera to their friends. Ger
man, sewing, chart-catting and literary
circles will be taught by the best teach
ers available.
Tbe gymnasium classes, under Mirt
Shardlow, of Brooklyn, who wns so
successful last veor, will be well filled,
it is hoped. Only $2 a year will be

If one and n half grains of common
alum, which can be procured at any
drug store, be put in a teaspoonful of
impure water, or a teaspoonful of alum
to a gallon, the former will act on the
water aud produce a precipitation.
This is of a slimy nature and will stick
on the bottom of the vessel, so that the
water can be easily poured oir almost
to the dregs. The water will be clear
as crystal, and if only this small
amount of alum Is put in, it will not
taste at all dilterent from pure water.
No matter how full of mud the water
may be the alum will act quickly and
harmlessly. This could be used in fil
tering water in large quantities, but is
open to the objection that people would
be continuously blaming the alum for
their illnesses. It is good, however,
for family use, either for washing or
"The old adage, 'After breakfast
walk a mile, after dinner sleep
awhile,' " says Mrs. Ellen Kichnrds,
who Is an authority on food topics,
"was founded on experience when
starch in the form of more or less heavy
bread, and of potatoes, and fat in
the form of pork was tbe chief source
of the carbohydrates and fat taken.
Does the same hold true at this date
when the more readily assimilated but
ter replaces pork,and when the already
partly digested sugnr replaces a part
of the starch, and when the light, line
wheat bread taxes much less the power
or digestion? In other words, how far
is it physiologically correct to encour
age brain-workers to omit the after
dinner rest by furnishing them with a
noonday meal which will not tax all
their bodily powers so as to leave noth
ing available for mental work For my
own part, I believe that whatever may
be the case for the morning and even
ing meal, the character of the food
taken during working hours of stu
dents should be such as to sustain tho
supply of force-producing material in
the blood, without requiring a largo
per cent, of the force already at hand
to convert the food eaten into anew
force-producing power."
Many of the current cures for earache
advise the dropping of various sub
stances into the ear. One of the best
specialists of the day pronounces this
'usually an unadvisablo procedure,"
and in place of such remedies, prefers
the application of warmth to the re
gion of the ear, either by dry heat in
the form of heated llannel, cotton,
wool, bags of hops, bran or meal, or
by cloths wrung out of hot water,
steam, or poultices of flaxseed,or roast
ed onions. Cotton should not habitu
ally be worm-wedged Into the ear, for
the reason that the air-passage is thus
closed, causing the secretions of the
ear to flow more slowly or vey little,
and thits causing an unnatural and
disagreeable and perhaps injurious dry
ness. As, however, many cases of
acute aural trouble nave resulted from
bathing, and especially from diving
and plunging in salt water, it Is a wise
precaution to plug the ears with cotton
at such times.

imea circinata, or ringworm of the
general surface, is a contagious, vege
table parasitic disease, characterized by
one or several circumscribed, circular,
variously sized, reddish, inflammatory,
slightly scaly patches, accompanied
usually by itching. It begins asa small
spot and develops peripherally. Tinea
circinata is caused by the presence of
the trichophyton fungus, and is highly
contagious. Local treatment alone
usually suffices for the majority of
cases. An ointment of precipitated
sulphur, one drachm to three ounces of
lard, is a valuable treatment. Apply

tie a string around the stocking just at

the night. The grain will not only
draw out the moisture, but will keep
the shoes iu shape without allowing
them to shrink. There is nothing more
uncomfortable than to put on damp
and soggy shoe leather, and with fore
