A LADY in Boston has conceived the idea of preparing a novel kind of "Comfort powder." They are neatly wrapped in vari-colored papers, much as ordinary medical powders are wrapped, and enclosed in a neat paper box tied with ribbon. Accompanying each box is a little card with the following printed thereon:—
Helpful in cases of Discouragement, Discontentment, Loss of Patience, Disappointment, Heart Trouble, etc.
"Take one powder each morning, or as often as needful, thoroughly mixed with equal parts of Confidence and Thanks-giving.
"Prepared from the Medicine Chest of the GREAT PHYSICLAN."
Contained in each bit of vari-colored paper is a Scriptural text. The two following furnish a fair idea of the kind of ''powder'' to be administered.
''The Eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms'' (Deuteronomy, 33 : 27).
''Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you'' (St. John, 14 : 1, 2).
This lady, be it known, is not a Christian Scientist.
