FIRST CHURCH. A sale of work for the purpose of raising funds to meet the expenses incurred in the repairing of the .stccpl-3 of the First Church nnd other necessary works in connection with the church was opened in Burns Hall yesterday afternoon by the Rev. Graham Balfour, who said they recognised that at- the present time (.alls were many, but the work was done before the outbreak of the war, and was absolutely necessary. They their aeeponsibilities in keeping First Church in good repair, because it was an honor to the congregation and an asset to the City. They were not aiming at a very large sum, but they hoped to realise enough to meet the necessary outlay. What had interested him very much *iuce coming to First Church was the -great generosity of the people, and that applied to what they did for the church and for people outside, the congregation. Many were indebted to the congregation for accommodation, lighting, and heating, which they got absolutely free. They were giad to bo able to help others, and", of course, it was their business to maintain their own work. For some time the ladies had worked most heartily and harmoniously in this effort, and tho result was that a varied assortment of good.? had been got together, 3nd they believed that purchasers would be well rewarded. A unique feature of the rale was the birthday quotation book, which had been compiled for the occasion. In it there were somo 400 quotations, contributed by people of the church throughout New Zealand, as well as Australia. This book was exceedingly well got up, and should bo a- very interesting memento.

The sale is a very attractive and wellarranzed one, and all the stalls are laden with an abundant supply of goods, both useful and ornamental. The ladies and gentlemen in charge are most energetic in their efforts to dispose of the articles, and doubtless their efforts will bo rewarded, as they deserve, by a. ready pale.

They will make you feel like a new man, and give you a healthy appetite. They will do you mox-e good than a Es bottle of tonic.-|-{Advt'.] Chamberlain's Tablets are easier and more pleasant to take than pills, and their effect is so gentle and bo agreeable that one hardly realises that it is produced by a medicine. They always improve the appetite and aid digestiQn.-r£AdvtJ
