the time of my departure is at hand," Ood
bait ordained that all men must at some

ceivo their destiuy. There are two places
prepared for us aud if wa want to go to
heaven, where there is no siu, no sorrow,

coming to the earth " He aid that the
Bible encompafsoth all or God's dealings
with man rrom the vory boginuiug, aud it
is only those people that stumble over
certain passages of it that doti't rend and
believe it as a whole, and so refuse
to be guided thereby. In the ninth
chapter or St. Paul's epistle to the Hebrews,
boKiuning with the twenty-socond
verse a comparison is made between
ChrUt's blood aud the blood of offerings,
while iu tho twenty-sixth verse Is an nc
count of tbe three appearances ot Christ,
Tbe present time is tho time of the Uen
tiles and is known as the days of mercy,
which are promised so that it is unknown
In the Scriptures. And as the Scriptures
have and are being rapidly fulfilled, aud
as Chriat is now In heaven noting as a
mediator and intercessor for us. there is
every reason to believe that the second
coming of Christ is at hand. Ha did
not intend, however, to make the mistake
of many of naming the date. Ood's time
is not our time, so we must work, watch
and pray to be ready at his coming. Tha
last meeting of this interesting series was
closed by Rev. George E. Guild offering
the benediction.

Only of recent ycai'M has science rec
oguiajd inebriety to be a verittiblo diS'
ease. If the former conviction that in-
ebriety was exclusively a vice ia an
error, equally erroneoun is the belief of
extreme reaction that inebriety lg ex
cliiHivelyailixeuso. The Philadelphia
Mudicul and Surgical Reporter ncusioly
thinks that the truth lies between
these extremes. Inebriety Is at once a
dlHeaso and a vice, and appears as
either, according as tho one or the
oilier cuuructerisiio may predominate.
It may exist as a Uiwouwe with the vi
cious element entirely wanting; us lu
the case of an individual whose inher
ited mental and physical tendencies
toward alcoholism are utterly out of
proportion to his personal power or re
sistance when such tendencies have
been allowed a siugle opportunity to
caln ascendency. In this phaco Ine
briety Is a morbid condition dipso
mania and is characterized by the ir
resistible . obsession and imnulse to
drink, recurring at porioda during
which tho victim abandons himself
absolutely to the thirst for alcohol.
Uetween attacks the unfortunate pa
tient may bo totally abstinent; may
(itmcnr nerfectlv rational, und ninv he
able to conduct all the ordinary ali'airs
01 nie witnout evincing auy unsound'
ness of mind. He may even make
most heroic but lnellectuul ellort to re
sist' tho recurring impulse to drink.
Btich a one Is undoubtedly diseased
rather than vicious. Tho dipsomauiao
Invariably belongs to the degenerate
class which Is characterized by the so-
cnncu psyetiopatnic constitution. Jl ia
physical makeup is always imperfect
and his mental and moral balance ia
never stable. Ou the other hand, lne
brlety may be essentially a vice, at
least in so fur as it may have been ac-
quireu and for some time continued as
a vice. Thus uu individual in whom
hereditary tendencies are not pro
nounced, or are entirely wanting, may
acquire the drink habit wilfully. In
ebriety begun as the vice, if continued,
invariably terminates as the disease.
The belief thnt unsound teeth be
long only to a hlghly-clvllized state of
life seems to be a prevalent one. But
J. Howard Mummery informs us, In
Nature, that a very ditl'erent conclu
sion was reached by his father, more
than twenty years ago. after an In
quiry extending over more than a de
cade. Over 2,000 skulls were exam
ined, Including all the available collec
tions in Great Britain. Among 30
skulls of ancient Egyptians there were
15 with curious teeth; among 76 Anglo-Saxon
Bkulls, 12; among 146 s'tulls
of Romano Britons, 41, and 44 miscel
laneous skulls of ancient Britons, 9.
Several other collections gave like re sults:
Examining skulls of savage
races, 27.7 per cent, of Tasmaulans
were found to have dental carles; 20.45
per cent,, of native Australians, 24.25

Before a recent meeting of tho Sani
tary society orinaianapohs.Misa Mary
Dean made some instructive remarks
Man. she said, Is still the only animal
that kills himself with his own dirt. She
recounted a visit td the parks in New
York.whlch she described as "crowded
full of filthy 'sitters,'" aud that the
parks smelled like close rooms, the
people in them needed washing so
badly. "Many foreigners in New York
are too filthy for auy republic," she
paid, and she saw a uumber with eyes
made sore for lack of cleanliness. It
was heropluion that people who are
able to live are able to wash. It was
her opinion that there wns work in
this country for every one who wanted
it, and thas many farms were being
uncultivated for want of help. Men
want $2.50 for eight hours' work, and
the farmer can get but 45 cents for
wheat. There are plenty of farms, she
said, where the farmer would spare a
bit of frrniind for n nun tn 1ioq a Immai
and a bit of gardeu and, with wages of
no more man 20 cents a day, lie could
get along better than being a burden
to the benevolent in the parks of New
York. "We have an enormous army
of sitters," she continued. "People
who endeavor to elevate the poor by
?;iving them entertainmentsand serv
ng them with ices, ' German wafers
and elocucation.'' Her idea "was that
soap would be more to the point; and
there are many hyglenlsts who will
second the motion. .
Of all the employment open to wo
men, none does her so much, credit as
does that of the trained nurse. Even
this vocation is enlarging. Every good
summer and winter resort now employs
a trained nurse. The custom began in
hotels patronized by invalids and has
extended to almost every seaside and
mountain retreat In the country. It is
well known that every physician of
note preiers to intrust important cases
to the care of special nurses. When
these cases occur at a summer resort.or
as is often the case, the patient Is or
dered by the attending nbVsicIan to
one or tbe other plaoe for change of
air, a nurse is many times a necessity,
and consequently their number in
creased with tho proportion of summer
travel. One nurse who Is a favorite in
Washington is always taken to Nan
tucket through the recommeueatlon of
a lending physician, by whom she is
regularly engaged. The same way
with tho other resortH. Every oityhas
ite favorites among professional nurses,
and in this way tho profession often
finds summer work by no means as
wearing as one would be led to sup
pose. These nurses have stated hours
and times for everything, and are thus
enabled to obtain considerable restns
well as eujoynient, even tho very busi
est of them. Oue Can therefore readily
understand the reason why the profes
sion is yearly growing in favor among
young ludles of culture and refinement,
whose means are not sufficient to ena
ble them to Ignore work. Tho advan
tage is twofold, as everyone who has
enjoyed the attention of a well trained
nurse in contrast to the ignoraut ser
