Springfield, Ills., July 5.-rThe "Church
of God" is having lots of trouble these
days. Its congregation is composed of the
followers of the great trance medium,
Mrs. M. B. Voodworth,who (rained enough
of a following during a revival here last
fall to establish a church. Her perform
ances attt acted a great deal of attention,
and some prominent people were induced
to join the sect. When she was holding
meetings here the services were much like
a circus, and a charge of 25 cents admis
sion was often made. The excitement died
out considerably with her departure, and
the installation of Rev. E. H. linker, but a
fee of 10 cents was taxed by the bondfci
witnessing a foot-washing ceremony; As
long as the people made a good show, and
fell all over themselves while executing
trances, the crowd was good and the re
Invited Brother Baker to Leave.
Last Monday morning the six deacons
of the church called on Brother Baker
aud informed him that his services would
be dispensed with Aug. 1. Brother Baker
was greatly shocked at the news, but he
said nothing in particular about it. The
action of the deacons soon leaked out,
and Brother Baker's flock liecame furious.
Some said the deacons should lie a given
a black eye and that Brother Baker must
be retained: others said it was time to
make a change and that Brother Baker
t had to ao or there woulu lie trouble. The
deacons reconsidered their action and re
solved to call a meeting of the congrega
tion for a discussion of the matter.
Brother Darrach'a Akrilratlona.
It seems that Brother John Darragh is
at the bottom of the trouble. Brother
Darracrh, it appears, is ambitious to suc
ceed Brother Baker as pastor of the
church. Brother DarraKh was the leader
of the little band before it was dignified
bv the name of "church," and he was bit
terly disappointed when on the organiza
tion of the chnrch the brethren imported
a pastor in the person of Brother Baker
from Toledo, O. Brother Darragh, how
ever, was made leader of the choir, and he
sat in the pulpit beside the preacher. He
and Brother Baker have all along been
jealous of each other's popularity, and the
line of allegiance has been closely drawn
in the church.
Objectitoons the Pastor.
The chief objection raised against Broth
er Bilker is that he manages "the power'
very liauly and tlops not seem to encour
age trances. This is a very grave charge
in view of the fact that Brother Darragh
is an expert at the trance business. An
other charge is that Brother Baker asso
ciateswith the other preachers and ap
pears to be trying to make lhe "Church of
God like the ordinary churches, llien
they say that Brother Baker is too
English, you know, and tries to run
things with a high hand to suit himself.
Thursday night a meeting of the con cre
mation was held at the church to consider
the quest ion of relieving Brother Baker.
Praying, Singing aud Dis-cuasing.
It was a very warm meeting, though
Brother Darragh's friends did not have
much of a show. A gx J deal of singing
and praying was done, but the discussion
Of the subject was confined mainly to lit
tle groups scattered here aud there aliout
the church. Eldei John Hvde walked up
to Brother David Iayman, just as the pas
tor knechsi to pray, and smilingly ex
tended his hand. "1 won't slinke hands
with you," said Brother 1-aynian. "Whv"
said the elder. "Because you're no Chris
tian." YA hat Lave I ever done to hurt

Brother ljiynmn is alleged to have
snorted, rising to his foot: "Vou go away
or I'll smash your nose." At this junctme
Constable Bill ( raft on ntepiwd between

ALLENTOWN, Pa., duly 5. The condition
of Lehigh county's unfortunate fasting
woman, Mrs. Adlom Wuchter, of South
Whit ehall, six miles west of here, is ex-1
citing increased interest, particularly
among the medical profession. Mrs
Wuchter has taken practically no sub
stantial nourishment for ninety days. On
April 4 she tasted food of a solid char
acter for the last 1 1 mc. Since that tune a
sup of beef tea taken at intervals of sev
eral days has been her sole nourishment.
She cannot even drink water now.
Her Condition ttirnply Horribly.
When in normal health aliout a year

Now she weighs less than 55 pounds. Her
body has scarcely a pound of flesh upon
it, and when that is consumed, her physi
cians say, the end must come. Convul
sions rack her withered frame daily. Dur
ing these spasms her knees draw up to
her chin, blood flows from her eyes, and
her face becomes dreadfully convulsed.

results of which were disastrous to the

there were numerous calls at the drug

this city tell us that this remedy has been
more frequently called for during the
past month than any other preparation,
and that it has proven a panacea for the
very worst cases. Chamberlain's Colic,
