tensive nature will not be completed, it
thought, before the middle of October,

The carpentry work which has been
flr.iehed shows sorr* of the radical changes
that will mark the new church from the
old. The organ has been taken from the
piade it formerly occupied in the eastern
gallery and opposite the pulpit, and put
fin the rear of the pulpit, which has thus
been forced forward several feet to make
room for the organ end the choir loft.

The ceiling will be of a very light cream
color, while the walls, beginning at the
top with the same tint, will, by a gradual
deepening, merge into a deep and rich
otraw color .at their hoso. The galleries,
together with the pulpit and organ loft
will be finished in old ivory and gold, and
the organ face and pipes will be made to
The church will be lighted by fifteen
Clusters of electric lights, consisting
of five incandescent lamps, placed in the

each, placed under th* galleries.
The pev.s will be painted to harmonize
with the remainder of the s 'heme of dec

To an intimate admirer. Mrs. Leonard
TANARUS,. I fill, recently returned from a visit to

of her youthful appearance. An Evening
World reporter received from Mrs. Hill at
her sumptuous home, the recipes used by
the "Queen of Wales" in preserving her
beauty far beyond the time when most
American women show the crows* feet
and wrinkles of middle age.
"When I visited Mme. Patti Ceder
strom," said Mrs. Hill, "I found her at
the little railroad station on her own es
tates to meet me. I was surprised at
her youthful appearance and her extra
ordinary beauty. Afterward I learned the
magic she employed.
"Every morning she gets up at 8:30.

light breakfast consisting of fruit and
"While she is eating her maids arrange
her hair and she looks over her mail and
determ l ies on her evening engagements.
Then she writes a few letters and prac
tices a half hoar on scales. Only twice in
thirty years has she omitted this exercise.
"At 11 she Is ready for a walk. Weather
has no terrors for her; rain or shine, hot
or cold, she ventures out just the same.
When ii is pouring she can be seen in a
long macintosh reaching nearly to the
ground, high rubber boots and an old
slouch hat on her head, sauntering off for
a few miles' walk.
"When she walks she walks, and most
American girls would he put to shame
trying lo keep pace with her. She does
not pull her collar over her ears to pre
vent the rain from beating on her. In
stead she holds her face up and delights
lo feel the rain streaming all over it.
That is how I keep my fresh color,’ she
says, 'that is why there are no wrinkles
around my eyes nor creases in my cheeks.’
"After her walk she rests and then
takes lunch In her conservatory. ‘No. cof
fee, tea, chocolate or ice water for me,’
she told me. T trace half the ills of you

two, she sings, dances and plays,and at 12
o'clock every night goes punctually to bed.
"Mtne. Pa’.ll is a fervent advocate of
fresh air. She revels in it. On fair days
she puts on n short skirt and a pair of
thick anil comfortable walking shoes and
tramps miles into the hills and vales of
Wales. ’What nils you girls?’ she used
to say to us. 'Where is your ambition,
your life? Don’t sit about doing nothing;
get into ihe air and walk. Then, nt my
age, you will be as rosy and healthy as I
am, and not broken down and suffering
with all sorts of complaints.’ She took ns
to the village and ordered us heavy shoes,
but no one could keep up with her.
"Although she allows no cards In her
house, she joins in all kinds of children
games. There is exercise in them, she
declares, and that is what the body needs.

she can’t get in'O the air open enough.
Cosmetics she abhors.
"Her voice is as fresh and tuneful now
as when she sang years ago. The great
English doctor, Sir Morell MacKenzie,
told her that on account of her excellent
care of herself she would sing at St) as well
as she did at 40. The woman who com
mands *5,000 every time she sings and
looks twenty-five years old attributes her
youth, her health, her splendid constitution

A LITTLE HEAVEN.
Or lion the Kirk Fend Wn* Ad
By Frank Baird.
The Rev. John Masters, for the first
year ar.d a half of his pastorate in Glenco
kiik. got along fairly well with every
member of ids church. It was on the ques

built that he first broke with a few of

cede regarding non-church-goers had
elapsed, and then struck names from
the communion roll.
Unfortunately, as time went on, the
minister gave offense to numerous others.
He took part in politics, in the grange,
in everything, people said.
|<ar by year the disaffected party grew
and the minister’s congxega'ion grew cor
respondingly less. Hard, unkind and bit
ter things began to be said, first on one
side, then on the other.
As in politics there were two parties—
the "ins" and the ’outs." The outs peti
tioned presbytery, and w.re hard sym

The minister and his party attempted
to build anew church, but the others op
posed i\ The church, however, was bui t.
Soon after this 'he presbytery in which
Glenco was situat'd resolved to send a
stud nt cat chist to the. Glenco field. But
a protest came, and b fere the young
man reached his fit Id of labor he was re
So things dragged on for several years.
The ca-e was carried fiom presbytery to
synod, and fre m synod o general assem
tly: but still it remained unsettled.
Finally, after eleven years of visitations,
and commitees. and petitions, and counter
petitions, it was resolved by the presby
tery, that, notwithstanding the opposition
of the minister of the charge, and some of
the people, another student should be sent
to the Glenco field.
The little train was vigorously pushing
its way up the green river valley. There
wore not many passengers. In one of
the rear seats, quite alone, and seeming to
wish to he that way, was a quiet young
man with a book.
The sun seemed not to have touched him
for months. But though his face was un
crowned, it was not a sickly one. He lifted
his eyes as the conductor came by, and
they showed them a brilliant black —clear
and deep. This was Horace Murray, stu
dent, who had Just completed his second
year in Mount Brown Theological Col
The young man was suddenly inter
rupted. The car door opened sharply and
a voice called:
"Glenco! Glenco station next!"
Then it shut again with a clash.
The train came, at length to the plat
form and Murray stepped quickly down.
A group of girls, giggling and clinging to
oach other’s arms, stood some distance to
"There he is," one whispered. "That’s
ihe new minister. I pity ’in."
The few men who were present eyed the
stranger suspiciously—men at country sta
tions always do that. Some of them drew
away. As they went Murray heard one
of them say:
"If that's the new preacher, he’s goin’
to meet trouble; for John Andrews was
fellin’ me the kirk’s to foe locked the mor
row. Th’ old’ man's full o' fight 'bout
Murray looked around a little nervously.
He eaw his trunk tumbled from the hag
gage car in front. As he went toward It
the conductor shouted, " ’B-o-a-r-di" and
the train puffed away.
It was scare clear of the platform, when,
from behind the station building, where he
had had to stay with a frightened horse,
there came a large, rough, kindly-faced
old farmer. He reached his broad, mus
cular, hard hand and gripped Murray's
thin, white one.
"How are ye?” he said; ga'd to see ye;
WUS fearin’ ye hadn't come.”
This was Elder Wilson, the leader of the
"discontents" in the Glenco kirk.
"Get in," he said to Murray, "an’ we’ll
drive over home. Tom’ll come after yar
"Ye've heerd uv the trouble, I s'pose,
foie ye were sent,” the elder said after
“Of some.” Murray said, “but I dldn t
think it was serious.”
"Inhere wus ye brought up?” he
Murray explained that his home was in
the adjoining province.
"1 thought ye must be from over the
water, or ye’d have heerd.”
It dawned on Murray that the dispute
must be of proportions he had not
dreamed. He had intended to settle the
troulbe by belittling it; but the elder's
last remark g'ave him doubts as *to
whether that method would do.
If the ttouble wasn't real, people
thought It was; and thereOvas little dif
ference. Things must be taken as they
were. Making light of the dispute, Murray
saw, would not do; people would laugh at
"Hev ye ever preached?”
Murray said yes, and explained where.
"Ye'll hev to do _er best here or the
people'll still stick to the ol’ man, for he's
no bungler in the pu'.p'.t.”
It gradually came to the young man
that the Committee of Presbytery had r.ot
told him the worst. Elder Wilson's words
sent a shudder through him. He was to
be tried In a way he had not thought of.
He was to stand as a rival of the o and pas
tor day after day, and the old pastor was

front of a farm house.

in a lower tone. "I want ye to meet

and on a half-run to the gale. The wind
blew his hair atone wildly.
“Wall,” he called as he came, “ye've

his voice: "Hao ye a gun wi* ye?”
Murray confessed lie had not. For some
time the three men talked.
"He's been ordered by presbytery to
open the church, and surely will not re
fuse." Murray said, "and further, has not

In the 111 Id. hut nil were to come and sit
together In the one church, after being
twelve years apart. The gulf fixed fir
so long was to be bridged.
The old minister and his session had
met the committee of presbytery, and all
had been arranged. The moderator of
preabytery was to coma and praaide, and
on his right and left wers to be the old
and the new ministers, who were after
ward to work In harmony,
i Then on that particular day two oaw
brides and grooms were io "appear out.”
So it happened that long before the
hour appointed for service dozens were
making their way through mud and rain
toward the kirk. The people came for
Horace Murray, seated by Elder Wilson,
approached the church without the slight
est misgivings. How it rejoiced his
heart, and encouraged him for the future,
to see so many out in a pouring rain!
He was to see a long-standing and acri
monious dispute amicably settled. True,
the day was ominous, but what of that.
He arrived at the church and alighted.
He was puzzled at first why so many
should choose to remain standing out
side in the rain; but he soon understood.
Sam Bloice came quickly through the
crowd to the carriage.
"It’s jlst as I told ye’s," he said; "my
woman was right. It’s locked," pointing
to the door, "an’ is to be.”
Both Elder Wilson and Murray turn
ed. On the platform of the church sat
a dozen or more women. Two of them
were white and bowed. All were exposed
to the sweeping, swishing rain; only a
few had umbrellas.
The crowd closed a little closer around
the carriage. But no one spoke. What
was there to say? Even Sam was quiet
for a time.
A great load from Glendale, six miles
away, drew' up; then from the other di
rection came one of the wedding parties.
“Has the moderator come?" Murray
asked at length of Sam.
"Yes, an’ is in the manse this ten min
"Ye’d better go in." Elder Wilson said
to Murray, "and see; tell them we’re wait
in’ in the rain."
The crowd opened and Murray went to
ward the manse, that stood some twenty
rods away. He rang, and there was soon
before him a tall, dark girl. She had a
firm, oval face, wine colored eyes set un
der long black lashes, and high, gracefully
curved brows. Murray knew she was no
servant. He raised his hand toward his

Murray had not looked for this. He
felt ashamed, dazed, confused. The wo
man's tears had had their usual effect.
Was he right in having come, or wrong 0
Perhaps the old minister was not, after
all, to blame. She turned from him to th
door and put her hand again on the
"Papa, may I come in?” she sobbed.
A deep voice answered yes.
But she did' not enter. She pushed wide
the door, motioned Murray toward it
then turned and went quickly away.
The moderator reached for Murray's
hand, but did not speak. The old min
Ister sat silent, and without raising his
eyes, for some time.
By and by he spoke. His face bore
the marks of deep agitation, but he spoke
deliberately and firmly.
"My people,” he said, rising, "woul

opening the church to any minister but
myself. They would not accept the set

He turned to Murray and shook hands
The minister of the Glenco kirk was a
large, firmly-built man. He had a strong,
full face, deeply set in a heavy gray
beard. He gavee one the impression that,
physically, his powers of endurance might
be almost limitless.
Murray turned from the room to go
again to the waiting crowd in the r4r..
Both walked together to where the pa
tient, now thoroughly drenched, crowd
of 200 stood before the locked kirk.
The old man told of the terms of the
settlement; of how hard they bore, as he
bad thought over them, on him: of how
badly he was being used; of how, after
being their minister for 16 years, he could
not consent to being set aside and have
another preside at communion service in
Murray then spoke briefly. He regret
ted the action of minister and people. He
had hoped the settlement was final and
fair. He had come in the interests of
peace, and was willing yet to seek to
bring It about.
Then the crowd began to break at the
edges and melt away. It was stiil pour
ing rain. Scarcely a word was spoken.
The teamsters tightened their reins, and
the heavy wagons wilh their loads lum
bered away. Another attempt <o settle
the dispute in the Glenco kirk had failed
It was six weeks after. For all that
limo mat ers had stood as left on the
eventful first Sunday in May. But now
it was nearing the meeting of presbytery,
when swift retribution was to overtake
the offending Glenei minister, and those
of his eongrega lon who had taken on
themselves the awful responsibility of not
only refus ng to obey the presbytery’s in
junction. but of lo king the door In the
moderator's face. It was violent, open re

that now and th n, when the young man
had no service in any of the other
churches of a Surctev evening, he had
been seen at the old man's service In the
Glenco kirk, and ihet afterward he had
been seen “goin’ into the manse.”
Then it was known for a certainty that
th day the young man s.rved “the pa
per” on the minister—the summons to ap
pear btfoie presbytery “to show cause
why ho should noi be dis’iplined '—he had
stayed all night. But It was wet tt-at

The day of me ting came, and the pres

of the moderator. Tills, however, soon
gave place to a quirt seriousness.
Reports of what had taken place weie
read and heard. Then long, oftn animat
ed discussions, followed. Nothing was ilic-
Itid to jusify the cosing of the church.
The old Glenco minis er had argued his
case but had not proved himself clear
of complicity In the closing of, and the
de'erminatton lo keep closed, the Glenco
kirk. He was firm.
There was only one course open to the
cour' It must move his suspension; and
it did. The moderator was ready to put
the motion, when the old Glenco minister
rose to his feet.
"Moderator," he said, and there was the
ring of true eloquence In his voice—
" Moderator. I have a word to say.”
The oldest there could not recall a sim
ilar or sadder scene. The motion that
would be put in a moment would go with
a sweep; it would mean the striking from
the roll of ministers the name of one of
the oldest there; it would mean the sever

The tired presbyters leaned back, re

The motion to suspend the minister of
Glenco was never put. The following
spring there came a petition from he
Glenco field begging that the same young
man be sent another summer. It was
signed by the minister and both parties.
Two years later there came another pa

was a unanimous call to the Rev. Horace

Much has been said of the dirt of Ma
nila, but if one separates cleanliness and
sanltariness, then the Filipinos, w’hile gen
erally cleanly, are. acknowledged to have
absolutely no idea of what is means to
live in a sanitary way.
While a Filipino housew'ife will throw
her garbage directly outside her front
loor, and live happily in an atmosphere
laden with smells, the interior of her
bouse is generally tidy and she herself
almost always neat in her appearance.
Another thing, if bathing is not so fre
quent in the Philippines as it is in Amer
ce, the women—both high and low
shampoo their hair much more frequent
!y and think nobody well regulated who
•annot find time to do this at least once
i week. Most of the women have long
ind beautiful hair—albeit it Is all of the
*ame dusky shade—and take pride in
wearing it flowing freely down their
backs when they are dressed for any spe
ial occasion. A Filipino woman scarce
y ever takes a hath that she does not in
clude the washing of her long, black
nane. A bath means the scrubbing of
he entire body from head to foot.
Then, again, take a trip into the coun
try, and the view is made picturesque by
bis one feature. Steam up the Pasig
iver on one of the government launches,
>nd before every little hut which is nes
ted in the green hank, or in a clearing of
he bamboo, are bathers, men, women and
hildren, sometimes the whole family do
ng the family wash at the same time.
The people are modest, too, considering
he climate and their simple way of liv
nsr, for the w’emen and little girls always
wear some old garment, though ihe small
’>oys and the men are apt to splash
iround in a. natural condition. Nor do
hey bathe merely for the pleasure of
etng in the w*ater. they make a serious
business of scrubbing themselves, using
i great deal of soap in the process. Since
here is an abundance of water to be

vice. After washing the clothes are
strung along a river bank, or a fence, to
dry ard afterwards starched and ironed.
There is no more pleasurable sight In
the Philippines than that outside of a
church on a feast day. Grouped about
the steps, waiting for the doors to be
opened, are native men, women and chil
dren, all in clean clothes from the little
fo'ks who toddle about dressed exactly
like their elders, in diminutive long trous
ers and thin shirt with the tail flying loose

poorest native always has something neat

Save Year Hair with
And light dressings of CUTICURA, purest of
emollient skin cures. This treatment at once
stops falling hair, removes crusts, scales, and
dandruff, soothes irritated, itching surfaces,
stimulates the hair follicles, supplies the roots
with energy and nourishment, and makes the
hair grow upon a sweet, wholesome, healthy
scalp when all else fails.
Millions of Women
Use CracußA Soap exclusively for preserving, purifying, and beautifying
the skin, for cleansing the scalp of crusts, scales, and dandruff, and the stop
ping of falling hair, for softening, whitening, and healing, red, rough, and
eore hands, in the form of baths for annoying irritations and chaflngs, or
too free or offensive perspiration, in the form of washes for ulcerative weak
nesses, and for many antiseptic purposes which readily suggest themselves
to women, and especially mothers, and for all the purposes of the toilet,
bath, andnursery. No amount of persuasion can induce those who have once
used it to use any other, especially for preserving and purifying the skin,
scalp, and hair of infants and children. Cuticura Soap combines delicate
emollient properties derived from Cuticura, the great skin cure, with the
purest of cleansing ingredients, and the most refreshing of flower odors. No
other medicated soap ever compounded is to be compared with it for pre
serving, purifying, and beautifying the skin, scalp, hair, and hands. No
other foreign or domestic toilet soap, however expensive, is to be compared
with it for all the purposes of the toilet, bath, aud nursery. Thus it com
bines, in One Soap at One Price, viz., Twenty-five Cents, the best
skin and complexion soap, the best toilet and best baby soap in the world.
All that has been said of Cpticura Soap may be said with even greater emphasis
of Ccticitra Ointment, the most delicate, and yet most effective of emollients, and
greatest of skin cures. Its use iu connection with Cuticura Soap (as per directions
around each package), in the “ One Night Curb for Sore Hands,” in the
“ Instant Relief Treatment for Disfiguring Itchings and Irritations,”
and in many uses too numerous to mention, is sufficient to prove its superiority
over all other preparation.Yfor the skin. •
