CAUTION AGAINST AN IMPOSTOR. Editors FRIENDS' INTELLIGENCER : FRIENDS' are counselled to be on their guard against a young man who has been giving his name as
Frank Miller,” professing to be a Friend, and seeking aid from Friends. He is an impostor. He appears to be about thirty years of age, is of medium height, slender, has dark hair, eyes, and complexion, had a small and dark mustache, and small and irregular teeth. In the limits of New York Monthly Meeting his method has been to visit the homes of Friends, at an hour when the man would be apt to be absent, and represent that he had called on behalf of some well-known Friend who desired to call that evening on important business, and wished to be assured that the family would be at home. Then, if the way seemed clear, the young man would tell how he had lost his family by consumption, and was himself stricken by it, and that Friends, he would name a few leading ones,-had been very kind to him, and had extended such and such help, but that a little more was needed to accomplish a desired end.
If the way did not appear to be clear to seek ajd, he would not tell his story of distress, but would depart at once, after having made the pretended appointment as described above, which appointment, it is needless to say, would not be kept. He may assume another name if he goes to other localities. 110 8th St., Hoboken, N. j.

WHITTIER'S “ ETERNAL GOODNESS." Editors FRIENDS' INTELLIGENCER :
Could you find room in your valuable paper to publish Whittier's « Eternal Goodness”?
The poem contains so much that is of vital interest to Friends. A friend of mine was asking me concerning Friends' views, especially of the hereafter. I could find no better definition than that found in this poem. My friend expressed a strong desire to possess it.
I know that part of the poem is frequently quoted, and it may be found among Whittier's works, but so many have not time to read books, yet read the weekly paper. I shall consider it a great favor if you will publish it.
The INTELLIGENCER has been the main link between me and Friends for the past seven months ; having very severely sprained my knee on the ed of Seventh month, have been bedfast for five months, and have very little prospect of getting about for many weeks. So have learned to appreciate the paper as I never did before.

A MOVEMENT is on foot to have a Reunion of the Descendants of Edward and Eleanor Foulke, of Gwynedd. They were among the Welsh settlers of that Township, in 1698, so that the Reunion will commemorate the two-hundredth anniversary of their coming to this country.
The Township will probably have a celebration, also, and this is likely to be held at Friends' meeting-house, at Gwynedd, on the 31st of Fifth month next. The Foulke Reunion is suggested for the day following, Sixth month 1.
A meeting was held at 921 Arch street, this city, on the 28th ult., and preliminary arrangements were made for the Foulke Reunion. About forty descendants were present, and a number of letters from others, approving the movement, were received and read. William Dudley Foulke, of Richmond, Ind., was elected President of the organization, and Edward M. Wistar, (905 Provident Building, Philadelphia), Treasurer. Vice-Presidents, Secretaries, and an Executive Committee will be appointed later. It will be desired, of course, to communicate with all living descendants of Edward Foulke, and for that purpose to obtain names and addresses. (These should be sent to the Secretary, whose name and address will be given later.)
DONATION DAY: NORTHERN HOUSE OF
INDUSTRY. THE Managers of the Northern House of Industry (702 Green street, Philadelphia), have appointed Second month 14 for Donation Day, hoping the friends of the institution will come generously to their aid in carrying on the good work, which must stop earlier than usual, unless they receive much needed assistance. Money, dry-goods, coal, tea, and sugar are necessities. Many of our members and contributors have been removed by death, and our income is much reduced-we have been compelled to turn away many suffering cases.
While the Association is under the management of Friends, its funds are collected from all denominations and its aid extended, by supplying sewing for which they are compensated, to the aged, the infirm, and deserving poor, without regard to sect or color.
We have a comfortable work room, in which from twelve to fifteen women are employed on fine sewing, quilting, etc. ; customer work is all done in the House, and the rooms are open all the year, except during the Seventh and Eighth months.
Out of the House we employ from thirty to sixty women on plain sewing. We are grateful to other charitable institutions for furnishing us with garments prepared for work for our women, thereby saviug us considerable outlay, and at the same
A LEARNED DISCOURSE. I WENT to hear a speaker new, whom some, think deep and
fluent too I listened closely on that day, and this is what he seemed to say (And though I cannot parse it quite, perhaps some learned
reader might) :-
On either hand, and anyway,
It may not, yet again it may-
But whether that, in fact, or no,
It is, to say the least, as though,-
Yes, how and whither, whence and where,
You must admit, both then and there.
If so, why not, alas, dear friends?
And yet, to put it plain, in truth, Nay, even notwithstanding thus, Perhaps because no doubt forsooth."
-B. D. S., in St. Nicholas.
