Fred Dominick and his wife.
Mary E. Dominick, lived at
Garys, within one hundred yards oft
the wife's father. Oswald Bishop.
Having rented a one-horse farm
some time ago, about the first of
this year,The had moved his wife
and two small children, aged about
4 and 2 years respectively. on this
place. Carrie Bishop. the young
sister of his wife, about 16 years of
age. lived with her father.
On Sunday a' week ago Domi
nick carried his wife and his wife's
sister to Bluford Bishop's. a brother
,of his wife's father. who IiA es about
1i miles from Gary. in the Trinity
country. He carried his wife back
home and left Miss Carrie Bishop
with her uncle to spend a week. On

nick. 'phoned to him that Miss Car
rie Bishop was no longer at her
uncle's, having left there with Fred
Dominick. to go home. .Mr. Bishop
supposed that his younger daugh
ter was still at her uncle's and that
Fred Dominick had gone on one ot
his usual trips lasting a week or
more. As soon as Mr. Oswakl
Bishop received the message, he left
home at about 1o o'clock on Sat
urday night and drove to his
brothier's, where he found that his
informiationt was true. It seems that
D)omninick and Miss Carrie Bishop
had left Bluford Bishop's at about

Thus the oratorio Consists of two
parts. each part being composed of
twelve hymns. The two parts may
be taken together. or each part may
be takn separately as a whole: or
again. selections may be made from
both parts and sung successively.
Which ever arrangement be
adopted. the person of the Saviour
will stand forth supreme, either as
himself blessing. toiling and suffer
ing alone. or as already "seeing of
the travail of his soul." and sur

he is "bringing to glory." In the
one case. "the Word" is "made

the other. the promise is fulfilled
