He dwelt on the solution of the problem of pain, and the means of converting sorrow into joy. Referring to the war he said that he did not be- lieve with some breezy optimists that everybody would be the better for it, but the majority, he believed, would be chastened by it and the hearts of the nations would be better after it. CARMEL (B.). The pulpit of Carmel English Baptist Church was occupied on Sunday last by Mr. J. D. James, Aberdare. Taking as his text at the evening service the words in John 4. 18, "Perfect love casteth out fear," Mr. James remarked that the predominant element in non-Christian religions was fear-a dread of the un- seen. Lack of courage was also a characteristic of some indifferent pro- fessing Christians. What we needed to-day above all things was the fearless- ness which Christ displayed throughout the whole of his career on earth, the courage engendered by love. Let us all endeavour to cultivate the perfect love which casteth out fear, and go out to the world on a mission of love with a. courageous resolve worthy of the cause we espoused and the Master whom we professed to emulate.—Professor Tom Jones, L.R.A.M., A.R.C.O., was the organist.

RHEUMATISM-KIDNEY TROUBLE. Rheumatism is due to uric acid crystals in the joints and muscles, the result of excessive uric acid in the sys- tem that the kidneys failed to remove as nature intended, to which every qualified physician agrees, and this acid is also the eaus4 of backache, lumbago, sciatica, gout, urinary trouble, stone, gravel, dropsy. The success of Estora Tablets for the treatment of rheumatism and other forms of kidney trouble is due to the fact that they restore the kidneys to healthy action and thereby remove the cause of the trouble, and have cured numberless cases after the failure of other remedies, which accounts for them fast superseding out-of-date medicines that are sold at a price beyond all but the wealthy.
