The second rea- j son was the growing demand for i Christian union on the mission fields, or as they were termed at the Madras conference, among the newer churches.

FEDERAl-MASON OTYJ FELLOWSHIP OF PRAYER Gifts Differing For as we have.many members in one body, and ail members have not the same office; so we . . . Read Romans 12:3-8. We do have "gifts differing" and our differing gifts are our most precious possessions. They forbid io lose them in monotonous likenesses. They challenge us to develop their wealth-giving differences. We do not think alike. Why should we? "There is a place for the conservative who treasures the past and the adventurer who calls us along as yet untraveled roads. We do not worship alike. Why should we? The world would be poor without its cathedrals, it would be poor without the spiritual silence of a Friends meeting house. It would be poor without the doer; poorer still without the thinker. It is no part of wisdom, to drive humanity, so rich in variety, toward a hard uniformity. It is rather our task to perfect our own gifts and permit--and help--our neighbor to do the same. They are all--candlelight or sunlight--from the same source. Prayer: O Giver of all good gifts, we bless Thee for the gifts which are ours] Deliver us from envies and jealousies of others more richly gifted, and help us to find our happiness in being what Thou wouldst have us be. Through Christ our Lord. Amen. DON'T SLEEP WHEN GAS PRESSES HEART If you can't eat or sleep because gas bloats you up try Adlerika. One dose usually relieves stomach i gas pressing on heart.

"Substance" Subject of Lesson-Sermon at Science Church 'Substance" was the subject of the lesson-sermon in the Church of Christ, Scientist Sunday. The golden text was from Proverbs 3:9, "Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase." The lesson-sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "And great multitudes came unto him, having with them those that were lame, blind, dumb, maimed and many others, and cast them down at Jesus' feet: and he healed them: Insomuch that the multitude wondered, when they saw the dumb to speak, the maimed to be whole, the lame to walk, and the blind to see: and they glorified the God of Israel." (Matthew 15:30, 31). Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: ''Every day makes its demands upon us for higher proofs rather than professions of Christian power. These proofs consist solely in the destruction of sin. sickness and death by the power of Spirit, as Jesus destroyed them." (p. 233).
