The Best in the Market. Always full Weight.

In the New-England States, PYLE'S SALERATUS is superseding all others. Its purely wholesome character, and general efficiency in baking, are qualifications which the intelligent housekeeper readily discovers and appreciates. These articles are always put up full weight, and housekeepers realize a measure of economy in their



The best Household Soap in America,

Is made from pure materials, similar in quality to the best English and French soaps, and becomes very hard; therefore not liable to the unavoidable waste suffered in the use of common brown soap. By its use all bleached goods will retain the desired whiteness, which is not the case when ordinary soaps are used.

It is also a good Bath and Toilet Soap. Each pound is sufficiently rich in stock.. to make three gallons of good soft soap by the simple addition of water.

There is no exaggeration in these representations, and we can refer to the editors of nearly all the weeklies in New York, who are using the above articles; but we prefer that the practical housekeeper shall test them herself.

Sold by first-class Grocers generally.

MARCH, 1867.


In his volume entitled "Reason in Religion," Dr. Hedge opens his discussion of the position of Christ in the Christian Church with the following significant passage:

"In the various attempts which, during the last half-century, have been made to construe the veritable image of Jesus from the illdigested and often conflicting accounts of the four evangelists, no result is so conspicuous as the impossibility of any valid and final solution of that problem. The historical and legendary are so confused in these narratives, the genuine sayings of Jesus are often so undistinguishably blended with the comments and interpolations of his reporters, that criticism, incompetent to the work of elimination, can do no more than furnish an approximate and conjectural reconstruction. . . . It comes to this at last, that every reader must construct his own Christ from the fourfold record, according to his own impression of the verisimilitudes of the case. And, on the whole, the impression derived immediately from the record by a thoughtful reader, with no theory to support and no case to make out, is quite as likely to be correct as any obtained through a foreign medium.

"Were it possible to reproduce, with exactitude beyond dispute, the portrait of the true historical Jesus, the image, I suppose, would be found to differ widely from the Christ of the Church, or the Christ received by the great majority of Christians."- Reason in Religion, pp. 227, 228.
