Davis so emphatically objected to tho girl's

on Whitney nnd tho girl, and finally order

down tho winding highway into tho town
in hot haste, with a nd'-g.i bip in ono
hand and n pistol in tho ot'ici With the
nid of Mr. Williamson, whot.0 daughter
wbr frightened into making a partial con
fession, Davis finally learned tho hiding
place of Iho fugitives. Ilo hurried nt onco
to Iho place. Jly this timo his anger ha'd
cooled somewhat, and ho g.nvo a reluctant
consent to tho mnrringo on condition that
tho two runaways would nt onco return to

to tho house in triumph. Tho wedding
look place a short timo afterward and was

In a very litllo whilo tho conplo left

caso, Mr. Clnrk's business partner burned
tho trno will, which loft tho properly to
Mrs. Gaines, his only child, I hen unknown,

Davis, William Iloxey Ilogcrs, after Davis'
death, produced a will leaving tho execu

holding him in nny sense responsible. Tlio

his text n part of tho fifth verso of thesixth

upon tho opening of the sdals b tho Lamb,
nnd tho nppearnnco of tho blnok horso nml

symbol of Famine. HcFcrritig to tho faniitio
in Asia during tho Inst Ion years, ho pointed
out that tho word of God wnH frequently

Biifli ring from famine, nnd thoso who fol
lowed tho history of that calamity wore
awnro thnt in sotno parts of that country
thero wnR a largo influx to tho Chtistian
Church. Hardly was that India fnmino
past I linn nows wns sont hero of n similar
calnmity in tho Northern I'rovinco of
China. It grow to bo tho worst famine on
record, for it wns cstimntcd that from
9,r.00,000 to 13,000,000 peoplo perished
during tho timo of its providence. For
thrco years in fucccssioti no rain fell. Tho

nlllictcd rogions in order to nssist in tho
disttibution of tho bounty raised in this
country nud England nud by tho vnrions
nationalities domiciled in Iho ports of
China, for tho relief of thoso sufferers. A
feeling of doep gloom nnd sadness camo
over him and his party as Ihoy travolod day
nftcr day furthor into thoso desolated re
gions. Tho trees wore dying, mnny having
boon stripped of thoir bark by tho fnmish

to tho ground tlirti A-ulisisleneo might bo
taken from tho thalch, or that ike rnftors
might bo sold to procure a last meal fur Iho

blenched bones of somo poor victim, who
hnd perished months before. Tho wolves,
growing bold, stalked about in search of
jiroy. Tho Chinese authorities woro bring,
ing grain into tho btrickcu provinces with
such expedition ns was possible; but if tho
syslom of rnilronds nnd tho telegraph foiled
to insuro the lives of tho uufortiinnto peo
ple of India, it was no ninttcr oi surprifo
thnt China, with her mountain fastnesses
and miser.iblo means oF locomotion, wns
compelled to witness tho destruction of her

greater part oF tho Food wns destined to bo
consumed by tho boldiers, who wero main
tained thero for tho puqioso of provonling
riolonco nnd insurrection; but still tho dis
tribution wns tho moans of saving many
lives. Under tho providenco of God, such
a sconrgo ns this becomes nn ngont for
preparing the way for tho coming of Chtist.
Tho famine-stricken peoplo cried to henvou
for tho relief which heavon nlono enn give,
nnd n powerful blow was strickou nt
idolatry, for tho spectacle oF disinterested

minds of such peoplo ns tho Chinese.
Mission work in China had bcou prover
bially slow, yet it was impossiblo for him
not (o feel that God was dealing with that
Racing for Life.
Deeds of daring ni-o novor scarce in fron
tier settlements, and tho tiowsgalhorcr who
is nlwnys iu bcarch of tho sensational uud
interesting, every day meets with incidents
wherein tho heroic naturo oF man .stands
in prominent relief, Only recently tho
tTournul contained tho particulars of a
locomotivo trip, during which great dan
gors woro iiiiwnveringly facod, and now
nnothor act of bravery of n railroad on
ginoor deserves ntti-ntiou. At I'alano,
Now Mexico, tho brnkes of n Hat cm
loaded with ties becamo loosened in
some inexplicable manner, and tho car be
gan to move down tho steep grndo towards
Cionogo. A bystander jumped aboard nnd
endeavored to tighten tho brnkes. Ilo,
however, found thorn unmanageable. An
other tried nnd fniled. A rcgulnr hrnko
ninu thou boat tied tho car mid quickly dis
covered thnt tho brnkes wcro out oF order.
Tho car by that timo had increased its
speed to fully twenty miles an hour, nud to
remain upon il would bo almost surodunth
when tho first washout was readied. Ho
thoieforo called to tho other two men on
tho car to jump, nnd this thoy did. En
gineer Frank Shaw at this timo wns sitting
on his ongino nt l'nlnno, mid attached to
his locomotivo was n enr lilted with Chiiin
men. Ho nt onco realized tho terrible re
sult if this runaway flat car was nllowcd to
proceed unchecked on ita way, for a scoio
or moro of Laborers wcro engaged far down
n deep gulch iu tho Cioncga Pass strength,
oiling tlio braces of tho brokou bridgo that
spanned it. They would uot bo able to
hear tho approaching car, mid it would
boon crush through tho wcakoncd timbers
nnd probably crush mnuy beneath its
weight. As these thoughts llishcd through,
his mind hu pulled wide opou the tbrutlio
vnlvo and started iu pursuit of Iho fnst
receding ear. It was a jvico fur lifo, and
Shaw boon thuiuloicd duwiilho track nt
sixty miles nn hour, with 'thifcar'.lond of
terrified China men behind him. Tho flat
car ahead wns iiicu-asing its speed ntoyery
tin n uf tlm wheels, and thu gradu thero is
very steep. 'I ho locomotive, however, kept
gaining, nud finally Shaw, placing thu luver
iu charge of his fireman, crawled tu tho
cow-catcher and, taking thu heavy cuui-liug-rod
in his baud, stood in that perilous
position until Iho car wns reached. Tho
chasm where tho mon wero working emtio
iu sight, mid still Iho fugitive ear was two
bundled yards nway. Ho called to tho

6he had fell tho iucieasrd vulumoof slonin.
'Ihoy biicd on with lightning rapidity. Tho

Shuv stood with tho lull in ono band uud

few feel intervening disappeared, nml with
a dextciity thnt comes from jinictico and a
cool brain, thu cunpling was mndo. Tho
