She hastened up the stalls, pushed
open the door, but was repelled fiom
entering the room by a dense olume
of smoke, which stifled her at flist,
and, as he paused a moment, lendeted
her faint. Overcome by the sense of an
Impending cntastiophe, she could do
nothing but lush to tho front poich of
the Hist floor and call frantically foi
help. Her ciies brought neighbois to
her dooi, who were not long in ascer

Mis. James Monle was the Hist to

'have done credit to an old volunteer

hallway, up the steps, and groped her
way along the daik passage to the loom

cut tains of the window weie still diawn
leaving the loom in darkness, save
w here tiny tongues of flame were seen
to eat hungiily at the tabrlcs which
constituted the coveilots of the cilb in
which the gill, Edna, lay. Mis. Monle
(-patched the toot of the cilb and felt
about foi its occupant.
She felt the child's body, nnd her
hands touched the flesh which felt cilsp
und ciaeked under her touch. To all
Indications the child was dead. She
laid it down at the foot of the bed and
turned her attention to the younger
child, which she eairled in safety to the
outer air. At this moment John Whlt

DESIRE OF COMMITTEE.
It Is deslied by the committee on nr
langements, of which Dt. James Mc
Leod Is chairman, that all the pastors
in the city will unite in giving special
emphasis to the announcements con
cerning this meeting at tomoi low's ser
The circular which has been sent out
by these boards and societies states
that although the twenleth centuiy of
the Christian eia is dawning, yet mil
lions have never heard the name of
Chi 1st, and that the darkness of heath
enism Mill enwraps nenily two-thirds
of the population of the globe.
The statement Is also made that tho
oppoitunlty for world-wide evangelism
was nevw so great as at piesent; that
the Chilstlan chinch has the men and
the money, and that her responsibility
has theiefore pioportlonately inci eased,
and yet, on fields long occupied and
white unto harvest the supply of la
boieis Is utteily inadequate; that es
tablished woik is crippled; that rein
forcements aie needed, and that ad
vnnce is Impossible until lenewed In
tel est Is moused and gifts to mission
ary enterpilses gieatly enlarged.
HELD IN PRINCIPAL CITIES.
This service is one of the many ser
vices which are being held In all tho
principal towns nnd cities In the United
States and Canada, the object being
not only to arouse the Chilstlan, but to
present to the woild the essential unity
of the great Piotestant evangelical de
uomlniJtloiis which, though dlffeilng In
name and In forms of church govern
ment, aie novel theless one In their ob
ject. In their piofcsslon of faith In

as the wotd ot God and the only lule
of faith and action.
