The "repas recherche" was fully enjoyed by all those present. The ladies and gentlemen assist- ing a, e tables were most generous and un- remitting in their attentions, so that all thocie present thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and the utmost conviviality prevailed.

Jones, the Aenue, acquitted themselves creditably, and their performances gave evi- dence of careful training. The vocal items were well received, and the singing was in every case excellent. The few recitations which varied the programme were of a humorous character, and evoked roars of laughter. The, instrumental performances, of the juveniles was simply marvellous, the dexterity and ease with which they manipu- lated the ipiiano, and performed different pieces, caused considerable surprise. The accompanists were Miss Gladys Curnick, and Mr Walter Watts, who discharged their auties admirably. The Ven. Archdeacon Evans in the course of his remarks profoundly thanked the choir and the artistes who had acquitted themselves so creditably that evening, and he particularly wished to men- tion Mr W. Bartlett. It was essential in entertainments of this kind that, there should be a moving spirit to undertake them if they were to be brought to a successful issue; and Mr W. Bartlett, who was hard working and indefatigable in everything with which he had associated himsefl, had been instrumen- tal in bringing this entertainment to a. com- plete success, and their hearty thanks was due. ito him (applause). He also wished to cordially thank Mr D. H. Jones, Avenue, who had undoubtedly worked hard and sa,cri- ficed a good deal of his time, to bring the choir up to that form, as was evident from the excellent renderings they had given that evening (hear, hear). The singing of the National Anthem terminated a very success- ful entertainment, the proceeds of which go to the Sunday School Funds.

IJ A Girl's Problem, HOW TO FEED HERSELF WHEN RUNNING DOWN. I am a shorthand-writer and typist." That statement brings up a picture of long hours of tiresome indoor confinement, close mental concentration, and subsequent exhaustion a:d brain fag. Then comes up the food question. A young lady writes, Some time ago I was a shorthand-writer and typist in a large city retail shop, and having the responsibility of the office- work resting largely upon me my health began gradually to decline, and I stood facing the difficult problem of finding relief of tome kind or leaving my situation. Worry added to mi trouble I became dyspeptic and. nervous and suffered with insomnia and restlessness at night. "I was speaking of my illness one day to a trained-nurse, who recommended that I uetiin a systematic diet of Grape-Nuts fully-cooked break- fast food at once, as she had seen its beneficial effect upon several of her patients who had suffered as 1 did. So I began to use my food conscientiously. It formed my entire breakfast with pert aps Postum Coffee or some ether nourishing drink and a second dish was taken at the evening meal. In about two weeks time I began to feel stronger and more hopeful; my digestion and appetite were better I was less nervons and could sleep. I continued the diet steadily and soon courage and vitality began to revive and once more I began to think success lay somewhere in this big world for me. My work grew smootl er and easier, and after seven months of this diet I could do almost twice the amount of work in a day and do it easily at.d without feeling exhausted. To-day I am filling a much more responsible position and do the work easily and satisfactorily. I attribute it all to Grape-Nuts, which I still continue to use. For a palatable and healthful diet, there is nothing on the market to equal it, and the fact should become of common know- ledge." Name can be given by Postum Cereal Co., Ltd., Temple-chambers, Temple-avenue, London. B.C. Grape-Nuts being. a concentrated food, four teaspoonfuls with cream or rich milk will be found sufficient for the cereal part of the meal. Stewed fruit with Grape-Nuts sprinkled over makes a mopt charming dish. Dealers sell at 7d. per packet.
