Parkes Cadman Heard at Bedford Y. M. C. A. The Sunday Afternoon meeting for men only at the Bedford Branch of the Young Men's Christian Association, Monroe .-street and Bedford avenue, was addressed by the P.e'v. Dr. S. Parkes Cadman of the Central Congregational Church. Secretary Hammond presided. The Royal Male Quartet entertained with eeveral selections, two especially noteworthy, "One Sweetly Solemn Thought" and an arrangement to sacred words of tho famoti3 "Lucia" sextet. Dr. Cadmau in his address forcefully reminded his henrers that time and 1U markings were but human Inventions; i hat as a drop of water In the vast ocean, so time w-us but a drop in the ocean of (iod's eternity. The fear of death, which, after all, was but. an Incident In life, and but opened the door to another and net ter phase of lire, had liirov. n lis shadow over many men, but was rapidly passing ! away as science more clearly revealed Pal naiure. Time, he said, consisted not of years hut of service; some men were young at HO, 70 and SO. while others were old at 10. The "greatest decision" for men to make was how to understand and use time. The two fundamental doctrines were these: Time In an opportunity for love: time Is an opportunity for service, and tlKse two expressions Dr. Cadman had the audience repent. Willi him, and he elozed with an earnest appeal for more love and moro service in the hearts and lives of men. The usual miscellaneous questions, aptly and forcibly answered by Dr. Cadman. ended an afternoon meeting of more than ordinary interest.

From Survey. 1 tip,! r.rnse seals to the number of 110.- I Oon.OOil are to be nrovide.l fur this year's campaign about 10.000.000 more than last year. Since 1908, when the sale of tiln seals began, 150.000.000 have been sold, bringing In $1,500,000. It Is estimated that 100,000 volunteers will help in the sale, counting tho men, women and children who give their services, store proprietors, public officials and others who give space for booths and all those who provide gratuitous agencies for distribution. The Ainerlran Red Cross and the National Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis provide the seals on consignment, with advertising and publicity matter Included. These two organizations receive 10 per cent, of the money derived from the sale to defray I the expense ot printing and cnsirioimn. Thus 90 ncr cent, of the money secured la devoted to tuberculosis worn in localities where the seals are sold. Last year the money secured in New York led and clothed ail tne children In the open air schools and fresh air classes and carried on the work of the Association of Tuberculosis Clinics. In Brooklyn If provided a children's sanatorium at Medford, L. I. In Chicago It carried on thi educational work of the Chicago Tuberculosis Institute. In St. Louis It, established an open air school aud a night and day camp. In Pittsburg the seal money start' an interesting experiment among bable. Proceeding on tho theory that most tuberculosis Infection is gained during the first ten years of life, those in chain-of the experiment have selected one Isolated district In South Pittsburg, whers an effort will be made to establish immunity through careful attention to thu housing, clothing and living condition!!. In Galveston it established tilt Walter Colquitt Memorial Hospital, a seasids sanatorium for children. BREAKS THIGH IN FALL.
