The visit of England's great or-
ganist, Gatty Sellars, to the First

ganist-composer, was born In 1877
and received his training at Peter-
borough Cathedral, and from a well
known professor of the Royal Acad-
emy of Music, London. It was
through being heard in Switzerland,
however, that he obtained his first
engagement at the Queen's Hall,
London, concerts, appearing with
Agnes Nichols, KIrkby Lunn and
Sir Charles Santley. His after-ap-
pearances In Europe were with Al-
banl, Busonl, Marchesl and in the
same series of concerts as Pade-
rewskl, Kubolik and Dr. Hans Rlch-
ter, etc. Well known as a composer,
one of his compositions was selected
as a test piece for the National Band
contest at the Crystal Palace for
performance by the massed bands of
3,000 performers. Mr. Sellars Is a
son of the Rev. S. Sellars, his moth-
er being formerly a Miss Gatty, a
name well known In musical circles
through the reputation of Sir Alfred
Scott Gatty, Principal King of

Keep the Balance Up.
It has been truthfully said that
any kind of disturbance of the even
balance of health causes serious
trouble. Nobody can be too careful
to keep this balance up. When peo-
ple begin to lose appetite, or to get
tired easily, the least imprudence
brings 011 sickness, weakness, or de-
bility. The system needs a tonic,
craves It, and should1 not be denle 1
it; and the best tonic of which we
have any knowledge is Hood'B Sar-
saparilla. What this medicine has
done In keeping healthy people
healthy, In keeping up the even
balance of health, gives It the same
distinction as a-preventive that It
enjoys as a cure. Its early use has
Illustrated the wisdom of the old
saying that a Stitch in time saves
nine. Take Hood's for appetite,
strength, and: endurance.
