Ramgwur Singh, C.S., Bhagalpin,

Bengal, India, 1882. Sirs,- I received the pair of Electric Brushes you sent me. I find them excellent. Please send me two more pairs of the Electric Hair Brushes and one pair of the Flesh Brushes. I am sending 85s. per Money Order, allowing for the postage.Yours faithfully, MAHARAY KUMAR. -Pall Mall Electric Association.

From Captain A. 7. Hollbourne. R.A.

Ormonde, Lostwithiel. Cornwall, November 5th, 1882. I told you my wife derived great benefit from her Hair Brush. Since then I went in for a pair, and fully endorse my wife's opinion, for bilious headache. Besides my sister-in-law has suffered for years from nervous headache, and laughed at me when I told her a Brush would cure her. As I did not like being laughed at, I bought and made a present of a Brush to her (ladies like presents). She was here on a visit at the time. Three weeks after, when leaving, she admitted that since she had used the Brush she had not known what it was to have a headache. The Brushes are a capital invention for nervous or bilious headaches, and as a refresher after a long railway journey, there is nothing to equal them.- To C. B. Harness, Esq., 21, Holborn Viaduct, London, E.C. La Colline, Nyon, C. Ton de Vaud, Switzerland,

September 7th, 1881. I send you per P.O.O. the sum of 19 francs, and should be much obliged to you to send me in return one of Dr. Scott's Flesh Brushes, with full instructions for use. The Hair Brush you sent me the other day appears to give great satisfaction. Believe me, Sir, truly yours, COUNTE A. DE VISMEs.


From Dr. C. Lempriere, D.C.L., &c.

St John's College, Oxford, December 28th, 1881 Gentlemen,- I have known and appreciated the great advan tage of your Electric Hair Brush for some time, and, as I find the benefit increasing, I feel it my duty, as well as my pleasure, to earnestly recommend it. No one who has not tried it can possibly imagine how material its comfort is. Your l'lesh Brush is only one more proof of the enormous future open to the scientific development of useful and beneficial domestic appliances, which are suitable to the poorest pocket, and are a solace to the afflicted. The brushes are indeed a wonder, and well worth their money.-Yours faithfully, C. LEMPRIERE, D.C.L., &c.To the Pall Mall Electric Association, 21, Holborn Viaduct, E.C.

From S. Adair.-Santry School, Dublin, February, 1882.

Dear Sirs, - I wish to tell you that I got one of your Dr. Scott's Electric Hair Brushes about three and a-half months ago, and gave it to my wife. Her hair, at the time, was falling very much, and after she used the Brush the hair was falling for a few days, afterwards it came out a very little, and in about a fortnight it ceased altogether; and now she has more hair than ever she had, and it looks better. She was also troubled with headache, and sometimes had neuralgia. Her headache has been quite cured, and neuralgia has not troubled her since she used the Brush. She now uses no other but that, and I think it is worth the price, even if it wore only an ordi ary hair-brush. -I am, yours very faithfully, S. ADAIR.-To the Pall Mall Electric Association, 21, Holborn Viaduct, E.C

From Rev. Edward Husband, Incumbent of St. Michael's,

Folkestone, February 13th. 1882. Gentlemen, -Having used your Dr. Scott's Electric Hair Brush during the past year, I am quite willing to testify to its reviving qualities. After hard headwork I often resort to your Brush, and feel quite refreshed. I should never feel inclined to resort to the old-fashioned hair-brush again.-Faithfully yours,

E. HUSBAND. - To the Pall Mall Electric Association.

Pitcaple Castle, Aberdeenshire, July 30th, 1881. To the Pall Mall Electric Association.

Gentlemen,- I enclose you Money Order for 125, 6d., and shall be obliged if you will send me another of Dr. Scott's Hair Brushes Received the one you sent me quite safe, and think it an admirable Brush for the hand and hair. I shall be glad if you send it soon.—Believe me, yours very respectfully,

May 1st, 1882. From Mrs. DEBAC, Beresford House, Ealing :-“ Please send DR. SCOTT'S ELECTRIC FLESH BRUSH. The Hair Brush Mrs. Debac had some few weeks ago has given great satisfaction, and has cured a most troublesome headache that many Doctors have failed to relieve." W. A. FISHER, "THE GRAPHIC," Strand, London, writes :"Your BRUSH is really a splendid affair. I have a great deal of head worry, and when I reach home in the evening, I feel very languid, and brush my head from forehead to back, and it makes

if you will send me one for my Deputy."

As the raison d'être of the PALL MALL ELECTRIC ASSOCIATION, LIMITED, 21, Holborn Viaduct, London, E.C., is, primarily, to develope Curative Electricity, and thus to popularise a safe, certain, and agreeable remedy for the multifarious ills that flesh is heir to, and not to accumulate wealth at the expense of the afflicted, as is too much the custom now-a-days, the Pall Mall Electric Association, Limited, hereby undertake to allow a liberal discount to Hospitals, and Charitable Institutions, and to ministers of all denominations who desire to assist poor members of their congregations to obtain these celebrated appliances. Please forward the exact size round the waist when ordering the “ELECTROPATHIC BELT.',

Our Children. Our Dear Children.

WHO CAN TELL WHY, With 20,000 Sunday-schools, 500,000 Teachers, and four millions of scholars, they leave so early, and too frequently turn out so worldly lost to parents and Churches, so ruined by thousands for both worlds, as we see and mour over! To prevent this, God has appointed fathers to teach, train, and bring them up in His fear.

Psalm viii.


“Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings hast Thou ordained strength, because of Thine enemies, that Thou mightest still the enemy and avenger

" These are wonderful words, and we are shut up to them. Who, then, can decipher them ? " Strength," out of the mouths of babes, to still, not to crush, the enemy (the Lord's enemies). God requires this teaching to reach the fathers.

Sunday Lessons in general use are unteachable in classes, and use. less to parents in home training; hence the ruin. So long as ministers continue to give over their Sunday-schools to publishing institutions for any consideration whatever, they can have no Holy Spirit, and religion must die out: blessing is hopeless. Until each Standard Catechisms and Scripture Lessons are taught in all classes, as teachers can teach, children can learn and remember, and fathers can train and profit by, and ministers, without study, can examine upon, Churches, schools, and homes must fail of God's blessings, as we see

The remedy may be found in the writings of Dr. Isaac Watts for the children of Thomas Abney (which most Christians over 40 years of age were only taught and blessed by).

The Assembly's Catechisms and the Life of Christ, by R. Mimpriss, which are combined in THE SYSTEMATIC BIBLE TEACHER. 2s.


WHAT SAITH THE SORIPTURES? See Deuteronomy chapter iv. verse 7; "What nation so great that hath God so nigh unto them;" 8, That hath statutes and judg. medts so righteous;" 9, "Only take heed to thy soul lest thou forget the things;

" to, "But teach them, thy sons and thy sons' sons, and I will make them hear My words, that they may learn to fear Me, and that they may teach their children;" 40, That it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee. Chapters v. 6, 21, and vi. 6, 7; "These words shall be in thine heart, and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, sitting in thine house, walking by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." Psalm lxxvii. 5, "He appointed a law which He commanded our fathers that they should make them known to their children," etc. Mal. iv. 6, ** He shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse." Luke i. 17, “He shall go before Him to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children," etc. Eph. vi. 4, "Ye fathers, provoke not your children; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." These are all God's commands to fathers. Fathers are not doing it. Why are they not? They are unable. But how can they be enabled and induced to do it? Simply by teaching to children in Sunday-schools such lessons as fathers require. And this our holy and merciful God has foreseen and provided for

Fathers, let me entreat you to help your dear children, God says (Isaiah xxviii. 9, 10) from weaning, before sin or Satan has obtained mastery over them. Teachers, why should you go on labouring, an see so little result? You need not; these Lessons answer the great end.
