The question of baptism is another
matter in which I have found some
of the parents somewhat lax. We believe as a church that he proper tlniei
for baptism is in infancy, and if this
be true, why wall  until the child is
two, three or [our years old before
you hav,- i, baptized? It is always
more convenient for the pastor to per-j
form the service when the child is a
few months old and it should he just
as convenient for the parents.
1 would, therefore, request thai in
the future the parents of the congregation In- more particular about this
important ceremony.
Now in referring to my pastoral
work, I may say thai during the;
year I have visited the parishioners
as frequently as my work would permit, and have endeavored to look
after the spiritual needs of the congregation ,o the best of my ability. I
may not have been able to give satisfaction to you all but a man can only

hands like steam piston rods, and his
head bobbing up and down like a cork

The fight went only two rounds and a

willing mixers crowded in more light
than would be seen in ten rounds
At the clang of a cowbell that was
used in place of ��� gong, Lundle leaped
across the ring ami pinned Kranl in
his corn. r. At no time during the
argument did the si en.- of battle range

Krant looked good in the first round,
and even if he was wild with some of
his swings, In- clouted Lundle aboul

dream stuff in llis bruin.
Harry's judgment of distance was
poor In the second round, ami twice

Take Cure ill Your Teeth.
All decay of tbe teeth begins frnm
without.    Consequently if the teeth's
surta.es l.e kept Scrupulously clean
they cannot decay. Let the child early
acquire lhe habit uf using a small
toothbrush dipped Into chalk Havered
will, some aromatic drug, and let it understand that the places most needing
the brush nre those between tbe teeth.
That is the place where decay almost
invariably appears. Mucous secretions
and secretions of food are always found
between the teeth after a meal. They
may be removed with u toothpick. It
Is nlmust a,, art to use n toothpick.
