ITEMS OF INTEREST. The Colored Romanists of Washington D. C., are somewhat troubled respecting recent changes made inthe pastoral charge of St. Augustine's church by Cardinal Gibbons. Dr. D. W. Crum, a very prominent colored physician of that place, will, so it is said, be appointed Postmaster of Charleston, S. C. On the republican state ticket for Louisiana, two colored men have been nominated, one for the position of Secretary of State and the other for the position of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Dr. C. N. Dorsett of Montgomery, Ala., a graduated pharniacliist and practicing physician, worth $50,000 owns a drug store as line as any in the country. A lady in New York has recently agreed to erect a three story building complete, furnished at Tuskegee, Ala., to l>e used for domitory and class room purposes to contain besides class rooms, 40 bed rooms for young men. According to the new Year Book there are in the Episcopal Church of Scotland 7 bishops, 280 working...

THE MAGICAL DOOR. There's a door in the wall of the ages-* A door that no man sees; For the Angel who writes in tha Book of Time Is the keeper of the keys. Once in the year it opens, At the solemn midnight hour. When the children sleep, and the . old clocks keep Awake in the tall church tower. And then, as it swings on its hinges, Whoever might pear inside Would catch a glimpse of the centuries That behind in the silence hide. Egypt and Home and Tyre, All in that mythical place Where the old years rest that were once possessed By the wonderful human race. The shadowy door swings open, And a pilgrim enters in, Eowed witli a twelve-months' struggle Jn this worl 1 of strife and sin. Waft him a farewell greeting; He will pass no more this way— This weary year who must disappear In the haven of Yesterday. The door still swingeth open, And outward another come?, With astir ot banners and bugles And the beat of friendly drums; His hands are full of beauty— The cluster, the song, the sheaf....

Using Liquids at Meals. A great deal of misapprehension is often found to exist in the popular mind in regard to matters of eating and drinking; the cause of this to some extent is to be traced to old-time sayings, which have come down to us in the form of a concentrated infusion of somebody's opinion upon a subject of which he or she was wofully ignorant. One of these misapprehensions to which we may refer is as to the in juriousness of taking fluid with meals. One frequently hears it laid <lown as a maxim that "it is bad to drink with your meals, it dilutes the gastric juices." By way of explanation we may remark, says the Medical ?ress, that "it implies that the fluid taken is harmful." Whence this sagacious postulate originally came we cannot tell; it has quite the ring about it of an inconsequent deduction formed by a person whose presumption of knowledge was only exceeded by a lamentable ignorance of the subject. Medical men often find much difficulty in dealing wit...

THE ©fearefl (3etuo<2<ate;, 14 N.EXETER STREET. REV. GEO. F. BRAGG, JR., Editor. The Church Advocate is a WEEKLY NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED IN THE INTERESTS OF THE COLORED Race in general, and in the interest of the Episcopal Church in particular. ~ OUR CHANGE. With this issue the Advocate appears as a weekly newspaper in the interests of the Colored Race and the Episcopal Church. That there is need for such an enterprise in the field of journalism is already evident. The Episcopal Church, with its Apostolic ministry, liturgy, sacraments, the Word and the influence and standing its members, is calculated; as we think and believe, to do for the Colored Race in their amelioration and uplifting, what no other body of christians can do. A young and aspiring race, as is the Colored Race, needs the guiding hand and nursing care of that organization of christians which has been tested and found equal to the emergency all through the many centuries of the past. The chase lang...

WORDS OF WISDOM. Love is always a burden-bearer. Love that is not kind is the wrong kind. Anything is wrong that kills the spirit of devotion. The patience of love never wearies. It is provocation proof. It doesn't break the heart of love to have the clothes-line break. Wherever there is a dead conscience it means that the soul is dead. Love does not boast of the battles it has fought, nor scratch its scars to make them look bigger. Love never keeps her seat and says nothing when the conductor happens to miss her in the street car. The love that is right itself will not spend much of its time in looking for black spots on other people. Love never picks out a two-cent piece from a purse full of gold coins to put in the collection basket. Love that is love, is not veneered or grained timber, but is solid oak clear through, and is never one bit afraid of the auger or buzz-saw. No harm to do this, and no harm to go there, you say. Well, that depends. The swill barrel is a good place for...

SLUMBERING SONG. Tfce mill goes toiling slowly around, With steady and solemn creak. And my litfcle one hears in the kindly sound The voice of the old mill speak; While round and round those big white wing Grimly and ghostlike ereep. My little ona hears that the old mill sings, "Sleep, little tulip, sleep!" The sails are reefed and th j nets are drawn, And, over his pot of baer, The fisher, against the morrow's dawn, Lustily rnaketh cheer; He mocks at the win is that capsr alonj From the far-off clamorous deep, But we—we love their lullaby-song Of • 'Sleep, little tulip, sleep!"

TEA GOWNS. Ther6 is endless diversity in the shape aud trimming of tea gowns. They seem to get more elaborate and beautiful every season. There are ethereal tea gowus, nothing but gauze and lace, oesthetic tea gowns, mado of crepe woolen stuff,with flowing draperies; handsome tea gowns, composed only of rich brocades and velvets, and tea gowns of nun's cloth and soft silk, that are merely pretty. The severe tea gown is generally made of self colored silk,trimmed with passementerie. Cashmere is just as popular a material as ever.—St. Louis Republic. A SACHET FOR THE DRAWING ROOM. A pretty fancy is a chair sachet. The little perfume bags to lay on a table or hang from a gas bracket have long been familiar, but the large sachet is even more desirable than arc these. In shape Jit is usually long and narrow, and may be of any length from three-quarters of a yard to a yard and a half, and of the width of the goods used, whether satin, surah or plush. An excellent material is India silk of...

TEMPERANCE. NEVER GOOD. A reporter of the New York World recently asked Dr. George F. Shrady, an eminent Brooklyn physician, if whisky is a good preventive of the grip. He replied: "Whisky is never good to ward off anything. Good food is the best means with which to ward off disease. To dose with whisky is like adding shavings to the fire. There is no physical, mental or moral excuse for a man's drinking whisky as a preventive of disease." AMERICA'S DANGER AND DISGRACE. The craving of alcohol, begotten of alcohol, ever waxes danger; the moment comes when it is a wild passion, a fierce raa iness, says Archbishop Ireland. In slavery to it woman forgets honor; the father in hellish laughter casts to the vender of liquor that solitary dime that would stay (he starvation of the child; the husband pawns the cot of the dying wile. The muscular giant crouches in terror before the shrine; youth yields up freshness of mien and hopes of fortune, and moeks for its sake a mother's tears and a br...

A HAUNTING THOUGHT.' If the wind is the breath of the dying, As ancient legends say, What rebel soul, defying, '• Sweeps down the storms to-day? What fruitless, mad regretting Uttered that lingering wail? What life of storm and tempest Is spilled upon the gale? If the wind is the breath of the dying, Across the sea of light, What saintly soul, replying, Goes out to Goi to-night? Whom does this moonlit zephyr. Uplift on its white breast? What spirit, pure and patient, In rapture sinks to rest? —Elizabeth Stuart Phelps. Footprints in the Sand. MY FLORA. HAINES LOUGHBAD. w\ E did not notice v them at first.

RELIGIOUS READING. TTIE BWEKTEST WORD. One sweet word of holy meaning Cometh to me o'er and o'er A.nd the echoes of its music Linger ever—evermore. Trust—no other word we utter Can so sweet and precious lie, Turning all life's jarring discords Into heavenly harmony! Clouds of thickest blackness gathered O'er the soul's dark sea of sin, And the port of heaven was guarded From my guilty entering in ; Then came Jesus, walking to me O'er the surging waves of sin, Calling, clear above the tempest, ,- He that trusteth, heaven shall win?" Sow, through all the sacred pages, Where my woe and doom had been, GHeam those goldeu words of promise, " He that trusteth, heaven shall win!" Blessed, sure, the blood-bought promise, Let me drink its sweetness in; He that trusts his soul to Jesus, <l He that trusteth, heaven shall win!"

THE FARMER'S BOY. Bright, hopeful, with earnest eyed, And heart that knows as yet no guild, To titled rank thou mayest rise, Be not so happy, then, thy smile. A longing oft may seiza thine hearty To go beyond these fertile fields, And take in that great world, a part Where gold a mighty sceptre wields. In fancy, as through meadows green Thy faithful plowshare turns the sod, The furrows stretch away, I ween, To paths the world's great men have trod. The jaded horse, unheeded now. Pursues his own unerring way. As back and forth he draws the plow, Throughout the weary hours of day. Uprising from the fallow soil, In lovely vision, it would seem, Thyself revered, and freed from toil, Thou seest in a fairy dream. The world applauds, men how the knee, With gold thy well filled coffers shine, To wisdom's stores thou hast the key. And all the joys of earth are thine. Ah, happy dream! which naught reveals Of vexing cares or many a wound From Envy's shafts that he oft feels Whom fortune bath w...

A FOOL'S ADVICE. Let us look on the beauties of nature, nor school Ourselves to be happy by rote and by rule; liet us deem the earth fixed, and declare the sun rolls, If you please, with the moon on his arm round the poles; Let us draw on the skies No meridian lines, Nor, straining our eyes, (Seek divisions and signs; Let L'.ie day turn to nig ht without counting its hours. And the seasons ba known by the biossoms and flowers. 0, let's not endeavor to fathom the laws Of motion and matter, nor seek for the cause Of form and of color; it's useless to care Why heaven's above earth, if it only is there; We shall only perceive The design of the whole Was the heart to relieve And to gladden the soul; Let us live in this world unannoyed, unperplexed, And willingly wait to be wise in the next. —Eva MacDonagh, in Harper's Weekly.

Do we see to it that the books they read and those they study are of a clear and large type, requiring no straining or forcing of the vision; and do we encourage a large and open script for their handwriting? Do we see to it that our school-homes are built with a view to the falling of the light in the right way for the children's safety? Do we have the lights at home so regulated that no blaze shall produce blindness and no dimness make sight difficult. Do we make sure that the child holds his book at the distance which gives a correct focus, that he holds his body properly in relation to his book or work, that he locks off frequently, thus changing the character of the demand on the eye, and that he is not allowed to ...
