Wednesday of this week will be Ash
Wednesday, the first day of Lent, and
this Lenten season will last until April
24th. this year, the season covering forty-
six days counting the six Sundays in Lent
but the Sundays are in Lent rather than
of it, as they are feast days, while the
real days of Lent, the forty days, are
days of fasting and self denial. Lent is
kept by the Church of England, the
Episcopal Churches of the United States
and Scotland, by the Roman Catholic
Church and the Eastern or Greek and
some other branches of the Holy Catholic
The time for keeping Lent has varied a
little in the various branche of the
Church that keeps it, but it is a season of
fasting and prayer, and it is a preparation
for the Great Feast of Easter, the day
kopt in memory of the Resurrection, which
will occur on April 1 5th. this year. The
word "Lent" is a Saxon term meaning
Spring, and Lent is called the Spring
Fast. According to the customs of the
churches keeping Lent, it is improper to
attend parties, theaters, places of amuse
ment, and marriages are not solemonized
during this holy season. Every member
of the Church is expected to practice
some measure of fasting, excepting on
Sundays, and self denial is practiced and
Lenton Savings are presented as an offer
ing to God on Easter Day. Church
services are more frequent than at other
times, and they have a penitential tone.
The liturgical color for this season,
excepting on Good Friday, is violet. On
Good Friday the proper color for the
altar is black, as Good Friday is kept in
memory of the Crucifixion. The last day
of Lent is Saturday, April Uth., and is
called Easter Even, a very proper day
for baptisms. '
CONSUMPTION PER HEAD
Experts after patiently figuring out the
average, per capita consumption of each
person in the United States of the things
that are included in the general term of
living; such as all kinds of food stuffs.
liquors, condiments, tobacco, also clothing,
metals, lumber, lath, brick, lime, coal and
oil, have reached the following figures
In 1860 the prices proportioned to
consumption per capita was for bread
stuffs $23,662, meats $10,084, dairy
and garden stuffs $14,169, other food
$8,978. clothing $22,094. metals $26.-
082, miscellaneous articles $16,672
making the total cost of th ings consumed
in living amount to $121,631 for that
Calculation based on the prices of the
same things makes the cost of living in
1 906 as follows for bread stuffs $ 1 6.554.
meats $8,426. dairy and garden $14,399.
other food $9,822, clothing $19,313,
metals $17.141,, miscellaneous articles
$18,809, total $104,464.
The above figures show that it costs
less to live in the United States now than
it did in 1860; and that a person today
can purchase the same quantity of articles
to support him for a year for $17,167
less than the same quantity of th same
articles would have cost 46 year ago in
the United States.

was so wasted by coughing up pus from
her lungs. Doctors declared her end so
near that her family had watched by her
bed-side forty-eight hours; when, at my
urgent request Dr. King's New Discovery
was given her, and with the astonishing
result that improvement began, and con
