One peculiarity we have often
noticed among Christian people. If
a concert or a lecture is to be given
front seats are at a premium. No
body, on such an occasion, wants to
be poked off in a corner by the door.
But ^et it be a social meeting in-
stead of a concert, and it is aston
ishing how modest everybody be
comes at once. Tho further back a
seat, the more desirable it is, and if
there a bench within two feet of
the door it is the first one filled.
Why this should be is one of those
profound problems of human nature
that we never succeed in solving
K A Pennsylvania pastor—he is a
Presbyterian—has hit upon a device
for overcoming this tendency that
may be worth imitating. A neat
pocket-list of prayer-meeting topics
for the year has been printed ahd
placed in the hands of every mem
ber of the church, and at frequent
intervals in the list, in conspicious
type, are the words, “ Take a front
seat” -This, though possibly quite
- aa effectual, i* a tn t Ider method
than one that was tried a few years
ago in a certain Baptist church.
The pastor had ropes tied across the
entrance to the pews, except those
in front, and the people had to take
front seats or climb over. A tem
porary reformation was effected, but
when the ropes were removed there
Vwas a great backsliding in that

ble article with the above title, occupy

journal. It describes very clearly^ and
with great particularity the inception,
development, and successful result of an
effort by a thoroughly educated and in
telligent American physician to discover
an element, or combination of elements
in nature which would, without a resort

exhausted nerve and life-forces to their
normal condition. The scientific aspect
of the discovery is so clearly explained
in the article that both the learned and
unlearned can see the basis of facts and
legitimate deduction upon which to
rest. Many of the practical results al
ready obtained through the use of this
new vitalizing substance, and in cases
of the most desperate character, where
all remedies had failed and the most
skillful physcians found themselves at
fault, are given in the article, and its
high value as a health restorer testified
to by individuals well and honorably
