correspondents of Tne Bulletin, and of

for using this hinguaga. A correspond
ent of tho 'Gazette' assorts that ho is not
entitled tony cr?dit for tho rovival, and
that Ituv. Mr. Waller, of tho Methodist
church, is ontitled to all of It. In our
opinion the Lord htmsolf is ontitled to
tho credit of tho prevailing revival, and
has shown in It His irresistible powor by
awakening to an appreciation of thoir
true condition somo of the most confirmoj
siunors In tho world, und by making anx

b said th.it He, knowing everything,
knows liquors should nolbe disponsoi und
thit thin knowlodyn on his part would be
equivalent to inhlMtlouj but wo do not,
and wo aro conddout no other really
Christian person does, look at this matter
from such a standpoint. It cannot be
duiibtod that God permits evil to exist In
tbo world. He has tolaratod wickedness
in every ago, and will, no doubt, until the
dawn of tho millenium j but prayer has,
in many instuncos, If the logends of tho
saints aro worthy of belief, Induced Him
to put forth His arm to tho correction of
earthly wlckodnoss. Whllo He has tolor
atod crime, In answer to prayor Ho has
made holy moil of criminals, has washed
sin from sin-doUled souls, hut sunt rain to
bloss the parched earth, has made the sick
well and tho dishonest honest, has given
ollice-bolders power to resist temptation,
nt In tunny imtanees It Is truu, but far
0!"or thi tho world believe. In many
ways Uo has demonstrated His wlllin
ness to answer prayer, and why should
Ho rofuso tn reply nlllrmatlvoly to tho
women's prayors to; the oonvorslon to the
tomporanco causo of the saloon-koepors?
ocanttuii wny au should refuse, and
we don't boliovo Ho would. Women know
howlo pray. Many of thorn have had
much experience, and go at tho work like
practiced laborers. Consequently their
prtyors havo groat ollect. Aglaucoat tho
work they aro doing in Ohio bv appeals
to heaven will iatsry the reader'that what
we have said is not an exaggeration or
the praying power or Roman.
Jt has been said that tho v.val or tbo
Ohio siluts in petticoats 1ms at lust lured
od thefewslo mlud in Cairo, aud thnt an
organization of Christian ladies
is being consolidated preparatory to
a raid upon tbo saloons. A preliminary
meeting was, wo aro told, hold last Sun
day night. Tur. Bulletik Is not only a
religious but also a temperance Journal.
It isdovoutand does not drink whiskey,
unless it Is sick, and then it takes nothing
but brandy In small dosos at long Inter
vals, There is no cuto It would like to
oogtge in more than in tho cause of nntt
drinking, but The Bum.etix hopes Its
ludy friends of Cairo, In whose wolfare,
earthly and heavenly, It takot much In
terest, will not bo ld by zeal to whiskey-
saloon raiding. They rail address tho
Lord at homo la' tho Interest of temper-
anc, nnd u may bo It Is snoro
than posslblo that He will answer
their prayers and close tho saloons,
and thus rondor unnccoasiry the visit of
tho ladies to tho placos whero enliven

peated closet prayers have boon made,
Heavon should not respond and close tho
saloons, then tho raid may be noceasary.
Tho refusal will be a lokon that Heaven
is anxious, that our religious temperance
ladies should go out armed with the bow
nnd arrows of tbo gospol, aod the toma
hawk of prayer, end on tho war path
saok tho sculps of those who pass tho rosy
across tho counter, and, whllo glasses
musically clink, drop the pnUals gently
into tho moiioy drawer. In truth, this

husband, Hurry Horlock, as members of
tbo "Stoddurt Combination," with Bing
iroll and Kockwoll as manaccrs. wore
acting at MoYiuker's Theator. l'he Chi
cago 'Times' auys: '
"In tne play or tne 'Long blrikc,' Mr,
Stoddart is obliged to throw a shawl over
'Miss' Burke's bead, and In so doing ho
somolimes strikes her. On several occa
sions, sho claims, tho blows were deliver
ed with more torco II. un vu noccfsary,
and she suffered much pain. Friday
nlgnt Mr. Stoddart struck her in tbo face
and knocked her vlg off, whoroat tho
audience laughod, and 'Miss' ilurke fell
chagrined and aoHoyod On loavlng tho
stage, ts hor husband (inserts, sho re
quested Mr. Stoddart to bo kind enough

His answer is snl.l to havo been: 'You
are no hctrui,' or no.i tn tint effect,
and you hf.d beit-ir get out or my light
ns I shall throw tne shawl and nit you
whenever I cnoose.' somo nt the car
penters heard theto remarks, nod nskod
hor If thoro was no ono in the thealro
who would protect ber from Insult.
" Subsequently, whllo Miss Iturko was
In tho green room, Stoddart catnu In and
began a conversation with Mr. Blnggold,
one of the managers, and among tllu lit-
torancos of tho latter, in reply to Mi.n
ilurke 'n reiriarLs that nn insult had been
odorod her, was this: 'Your husband is
too much of a puppy to resent an insult
otforcd you.' Mr. Herlocl: was in his
dressing room at tho time, and when in
formed of this by Ids win), he went to
hunt up Mr. Itinggold and found him on
