TEXT-Praying ul way H with all prayer j
and auppllcatlcn In the Spirit.-Kph. 6:18.
The greatest need of the Church and
the world is Christ Inn men urn! women
who pray. Abra

The promise of Jeremiah 8818 was
fulfilled ninny times before the words
were written, as well as many limes
since. "Call unto me and I wlJi answer
thee and show theo great and mighty
things, which thou knowest net." This
ls Cod's call ami challenge to faith.
Some <d* His people have always be
lieved und acted on this ; others are
now being aroused lo Hs transcendent
bxpecting God to Answer.
There ls a growing spirit of faith
and expectation thal Cod will mani
fest His saving and transforming pow
er In answer to prayer. Not for
naught have God's people gathered to
gether in watch-night services; not lu
vain have faithful men held on in
prayer thes?? past years In spite of
Spiritual darkness; not without fruit
age can the labors of the Great Com
mission Prayer League and kindred as
Faith sees the cloud that ls yet to
break in blessing on the heads ot
God's people. It may not, at present,
be "larger than a mu n's hand,'" but lt
ls seen on the horizon of spiritual
vision by those who pray. The call of
the hour is for more recruits In the
prayer warfare, and an advance Into
the front trenches with the continual
cry, "Lord teach us to pray."
Bible teaching concerning prayer,
l|ke every other doctrine of Scripture,
ls progressive. There Is '.'first the
blade, then the ear, then the full corn
In tho oar."
In the Old Testnincm prevailing
prayer fa linked with tho quality of
? righteousness lit the ono who prays.
Elijah ls ri Striking example of this,
He ls presented as a mun -zealous for
God and righteousness.
Conditions for Prevailing Prayer.
in tho synoptic Gospels the doini*
nnrit note for tho prayer life is that of
faith, Righteousness ls not Ignored,
but to lt falih ls added. "All things
whatsoever yo shall ask In prayer be
lieving, yo shall receive." And again,
"What things soever ye desire when yo
pray, believe that ye receive them and
ye shall have them."
This, of course, implies yleldedness
to God and a life approved of Cod, and
must be considered in the light of such
a Scripture as 1 John 8:22, "Wliatso
ever we ask we receive of Him he
cause we keep His commandments, and
do those things that are pleasing In
In the Gospel by John, we are told
to pray "In His name": "Whatsoever
ye shall ask the Father In my name
Ile will give it you. If ye shall ask
anything in my hume I will do lt." We
are one with Christ In a vital Spiritual
union. We are called by His name.
As a woman docs business in thc name
of her husband, so the Christian Is to
do business in the name of the Lord
Jesus Christ. Frayer is moro th tin
communion, lt ls n service of the high
est kind. It is doing business In tho
name of Christ.
The New Testament Epistles add
yet another condition for prevailing
prayer to those of righteousness, faith j
and spiritual union with Christ. It ls
seen In our text, "Fraying always with I
all prayer and supplication In the,
Praying In the Spirit ls the addi
tional condition here named. A Chris- 1
flan must learn to walk in the Spirit, j
that ls, to walk by tho help of the ;
Spirit. Apart from this, bis life will
be a partial failure. So ls lt In tho
matter of prayer. To pray In the
Spirit is simply to pray through the
help of the Spirit.
Helped By the Holy Spirit.
"The Spirit liolpeth our Infirmities."
These Infirmities aro more obvious In
the matter of prayer thai. In any other
spiritual exercise. We have boen
"made nigh by the blood of Christ,"
but our access to the Father ls made
real to us by the opera Hon of the
Holy Spirit within our hearts. It ls
only by Ills illuminating and energiz
ing presence that we enter (he hnttlo
ground of prayer; or, In other words,
tho place of real Intercession, which

RIOT STARTS IN COURT ROOM
When Negro, on Second Trial for Al?
leged Attack, la Acquitted.
Frederick, Mr., /fprll 13.-An out^i
break occurred In the Frederick,
County Court room late yesterday,
when Charles Dorsey, negro, was ac- j
quitted of the charge of attaok on a
young white woman of. Baltimore
county. Spectators pounced upon the
negro, beating him with their fists;
water glasses and ink wells were
thrown across the room, and the up
roar did not subside until one of the
Judges rescued the negro and carried
him into an ante-room.
The negro had previously beeii
convicted and sentenced to hang, but
a new trial was ordered and he was
Immediately after the court had
finished announcing tho reasons for
acquittal, a man leaped at the negro,
and he was followed by others, who
rushed the negro as ho started his
dight from tho room. A spectator
Jumped on the trial table and struck
him in the face several times. A sis
ter of the plaintiff joined in and hit
the negro as he passed.
A water glass was hurled at tho
negro and narrowly missed Chief
Judge Urner, who, with judges
Worthington and Fetor, tried the
I case. The uproar continued until the
j court took personal charge of pro
tecting tho negro, who filially was
rescued by thc police. The negro was
again placed tn jail, where he was
protected by a heavy guard.
(?pod Example Co-Operative Buying.
That co-operative buying is profit
able is shown by recent experiences
of County Agent George U. Briggs,
of Oconee, who held a mooting one
afternoon of Westminster farmers
interested in buying acid phosphate.
There was a good attendance at' the
meeting because the farmers were
particularly interested in getting
better prices than had been offered
by dealers, and GI tons of acid phos
phate were listed by these farmers.
The local price prevailing before the
meeting was $18.00 per ton for cash
or $22.00 to $25.00 on time. A price
of $16 per ton had been secured from
the outside, and when this was made
known, a local dealer offered a price
of $15.75 and got the order. This
little meeting was worth approxi
mately $135.00 to these farmers.
