Presbyterian Pastors

Say

"The Communion Outfit 'Is beautiful,' It is so simple,' 'It adds so much to the order and impressiveness of the service,' were the comments heard on every hand. Tbe engray. ing on the covers pleases us all, and I am sure that for years to come the outfit will be tenderly cherished and carefully used by our church. Please accept my thanks for the courtesies you hare shown, and the promptness with which you attended to the order."

"I have heard nothing but expressions of approval and satisfaction from all those who participated in the service. The trays and holders seem to be both perfectly satisfactory. I wish to thank you for your invariable courtesy in all our dealings with you, and assure you of our appreciation of your kindness.'

Variety and Low Cost of Views Postal cards are thrown upon the screen enlarged to from 10 to 12 feet, the coloring excelling that of a seventy-five-cent lantern slide. For the Church or Sunday-school entertainment, post-card lectures illustrated with the Thompson Reflectoscope are certain to meet with popular approval.
