These are not “left on the train,” nor used for kindling. They are read, they are saved, they are “passed on.” Every copy counts, because every copy is read. The percentage of waste in them is as 1 to 10 in perishable dailies. As time passes, these facts are more and more perceived. ' he good Weekly is gain. ing ground. The monthlies are multiplying, and never carried so many pages of highclass advertising as now. People tire of enormous daily sheets, filled with perishable matter. They appreciate having the truth once a week, rather than seven different versions of it, seven times a week. There will, therefore, be an increasing number of readers of weekly journals. They will read with intelligence, with discrimation. They will observe the advertise. ments. An advertisement entitled to their considence will secure their trade.

*** Among the several Calendars supplied, one of the most satisfactory in a business office is that published by N. W. Ayer & Sons, Newspaper and Magazine Advertising Agents, Philadelphia. The 1898 edition has arrived and been put in commission. One of its points is that the figures are clear enough to be read across a room. It is, besides, a fine specimen of the printer's art, while its business talk always interests business men. We are not surprised to learn that the edition has been doubled in recent years. Its price (25 cents) includes delivery by mail to any address, in perfect condition.

*** Among our advertisers, at this season, is James J. H. Gregory & Son, Marblehead, Mass. The head of the firm is widely known among farmers and gardeners by his discoveries of new varieties of vegetables, etc. The most recent catalogue of the firm contains an extended list of improved new varieties in vegetables, small fruits, and flowers, and a vast number of practical farm and garden facts, acquired on the experimental farms at Marblehead. As this will be sent free to any one writing for it, no one who plants seed, whether in a very small garden or on a very large farm, need be without its helpful suggestion.

*** “T. P. J., Lansdowne, Pa.,” who advertised recently, in the INTELLIGENCER, “Wanted,” desires us to say that since the advertisement was put in, he has sold out the business, and is grateful for the numerous and excellent responses received.

A GOOD WORD EACH WEEK. III. OUR meetings for worship must be the glowing centres of our spiritual life, if we would keep and attract men, to satisfy their spiritual hunger. JoHN WILHELM RowNTREE.

From his paper read at the Manchester Conference.

SEND ME.

NOT mine to mount to courts where seraphs sing,
Or glad archangels soar on outstretched wing ;
Not mine, in union with celestial choirs,
To sound heaven's trump or strike the gentler wires ;
Not mine to stand enrolled at crystal gates,
Where Michael thunders or where Uriel waits.

But lesser worlds a Father's kindness know.
Be mine some simple service here below,-
To weep with those who weep, their joys to share,
Their pains to solace or their burdens bear ;
Some widow in her agony to meet,
Some exile in his new-found home to greet ;
To serve some child of thine, and so serve thee.
Lo, here am I : to such a work send me.
Dr. E. E. Asale.

For Friends' Intelligencer and Journal. BENJAMIN STRATTAN.

A BRIEF notice has appeared in FRIENDS' INTELLIGENCER, giving information of the decease of this dear Friend, on Twelfth month 12, 1897, but the taking away of one so long devoted to the best interests of the Society and so well known to many in all the Yearly Meetings calls for a more extended account of his beautiful life and his peaceful death. He was born Fourth month 26, 1812, in Clinton county, Ohio, and lived to the advanced age of more than 85 years, still useful and happy in the ability to engage in the things which go to make up the sum of human good. . At the age of 19 years he came to Richmond, Indiana, and went into the dry goods store of Joseph P. Strattan and Robert Morrison, as clerk. Afterwards he engaged in the same business on his own account, in all covering a period of 36 years, though not consecutively. He was at one time a member of the board of directors of the State Bank of Indiana and also one of the Commissioners and Directors of the Wayne County Turnpike Company. For fourteen years he was in the insurance business. He devoted much time and thought to matters connected with the

Religious Society of which he was a member, thus

demonstrating the possibility of providing for the temporal needs of himself and family, without neglecting his duty to God. He was indeed a “workman approved of God.”

He was married Sixth month 4, 1834, to Emily Lathrop, of whose companionship he was deprived about eighteen years ago, but he bore his loss with true Christian fortitude, strong in the hope of a blessed reunion. Many friends from near and far have enjoyed the generous hospitality always extended to them at “Forest Home,” their former residence east of the city, whose doors seemed always to stand invitingly open, and none of them can ever forget his cordial greeting and warm clasp of the hand, which grew even more loving and tender as the years bowed his strong frame. Time had power to dull his hearing, but it could not rob his heart of its native grace and charm, which were felt not only by those who came in contact with him, but by the many isolated Friends with whom, as correspondent of Whitewater Monthly Meeting, he kept up at least annual communication. “Forest Home” was his “ haven of rest,” and he beautified it in many ways. “Hosts of Daffodils,” planted by his hand, will still gladden the eyes of those who now occupy the old home, (from which he long ago removed), and still continue to “flash upon that inward eye, which is the bliss of solitude,” but not more truly will this inward bliss arise from the memory of the flowers than from the remembrance of the beautiful, true, loving character of this purehearted man, which is God's greatest gift to his children. He certainly seemed to come very close to realizing the fulfilment of Whittier's prayer: “Let me find in thy employ Peace that dearer is than joy, Out of self to love be led, And to heaven acclimated, Until all things sweet and good Seem my natural habitude.” He leaves three daughters—Mary, wife of Richard Shute; Esther, wife of Joseph Wallace, both residing in Richmond, and Rebecca, wife of Jesse S. Wilson, whose residence is St. Elmo, Tenn. M. Lathrop Strattan, recently deceased, was a son, and Horace B. Strattan the youngest son, survives him. Certainly they have reason to be comforted in the assurance of the fullness of life which must be their father's present inheritance, for the judgment of those who knew and loved him was “well-done, good and faithful friend,” as expressed on the occasion of his funeral, which occurred at North A. Street Friends' meeting-house. He had his trials and sorrows, which were borne with that patience and courage which marks the servant of God, whose promise is : “When thou passeth through the waters they shall not overwhelm thee; and through the rivers they shall not overflow thee; and when thou walkest through the fire thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” Many beautiful tributes were
