The will of Mrs. Maria Louisa Vanderbilt, the widow of the late William H. Vanderbilt, contains a notable bequest-that of $250,000 to St. Bartholomew's Church, New York City, the money to be used especially in the mission of that church in East Forty-second Street, which Mrs. Vanderbilt had annually and liberally supported. The main building was erected as a gift from her and from her son Cornelius.

The late John Maxson Brown, of Manasquan, N. J., who has just died in his eightyninth year, had saved hundreds of persons from drowning. Most of this splendid work was done at times when there was no life-saving station on the New Jersey coast. Our older readers may remember the terrible wreckings of the New Eva, the Cornelius Grinnell, the Catherine Jackson, the New York, and other ships on that coast. Mr. Brown's house near Manasquan had become a pilgrimage place, and he was often visited by those whom he had saved.
According to a dispatch from Washington last week King Oscar of Sweden has done a gracious act in memory of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel D. Youmans, of New York City, who were killed while driving along a mountain road near Bergen, Norway. The State Department has received photographs and a description of the monument erected on the spot from the United States Consul at Bergen. The monument is a roughly hewn shaft resting upon a massive base, with a Norwegian inscription, which, translated, is: "Mr. and Mrs. Daniel D. Youmans, of New York. Met their death here by an accident on the 4th of July, 1896. God's grace be with them." On the reverse side is: "Oscar the Second erected this memorial."

we have been urging Asthma and Hay Fever Sufferers to begin the constitutional treatment that brings not only relief, but a Cure that Stays. Hundreds have done so, and here's a letter from one of them: DEAR DOCTOR HAYES:
BREWSTER, N. Y., SEPT. 14, 1896.
I am satisfied your treatment has been very helpful and beyond my expectations. The catarrhal symptoms have been much lighter and not of as long duration, and as for Asthma, the effect of the medicines is marvellous. To go to bed and sleep all night is for me, at this season of the year, something I have not been able to do for 30 years. Now I sleep all night and in the morning I am free from the cough that is so weakening and depressing. When I compare myself with others about here who have Hay-Fever and are not taking your treatment, I am away ahead of them. Perhaps I am too enthusiastic, but when one has had this terrible disease for over 30 years as I have, and had given up all hope of a cure. how can one help being enthused. I have one regret having known of your treatment so long that I should be so incredulous as not to be willing to try it till this year. Yours truly BENJ. D. EVERETT.
