A l umber of topics was discussed,
and one of theso was dreams and the

attracted the most attention was that of

A Woman Who (Jot Alone.
The ability of a woman to get on alone
in the world is sometimes questioned by
her big brothers. But there are plenty
of instances where women have been
left in circumstances wjiich would try
the powers of the stoutest hearted man
to the utmost and have come out tri
umphant. One of these was mentioned
to a reporter the other day in connection
with a rough side hill farm in a remote
part of an inland town. "There," said
our informant, pointing to the place,
"lived Aunt Abby S when her hus
band died. She then had three small
children, and another was bora boon
after. The farm was in poor condition
and had about all the mortgage it could
bear. Her husband's old father, feeble
and fussy, was left on her hands.
"Did she send the old man to the poor
farm, think you? Not a bit of -It. She
kept him a year or two, and lie was so
fussy she couldn't live with him. Jien
she hired a neighbor to take him, and she
paid his board 12 years, when he died.
She raised her children and brought
the farm into good condition. She paid
the mortgage, and when she died she
left a good projerty free and clear of all
debts. The boys hadn't the old lady's
spunk, for there's a mortgage up there
now, and nothing in the world but lazi
ness did it. They had everything left
ready to their hands and ain't had no
drawbacks, Yept losin their mother, but

MOODY a.nD SANKEY.
SiO.IY OF HOW MOODY DISCOVERED
" THE MAN TC HELP HIM.
It Was ut a 'lectins In Indianapolis That
the Voir of the Great Singer Was First
Heard by the Stirring Evangelist Their
It was at Indianapolis in 1ST0 that
these two men first made each other's
acquaintance. Mr. Moody was already
displaying that zeal in evangelistic work
which subsequently made him famous,
though then his efforts and his reputa
tion were confined largely to Chicago.
Mr. Sankey's home was in Newcastle,
Pa., where he was then serving as an in
ternal revenue officer. His father was a
banker and active in politics and held
under Lincoln's appointment the impor
tant position of collector of inland rev
enue for four large counties in western
Pennsylvania. Young Sankey was then
a Christian, having been converted a
number of years before during a Metho
dist revival, and his talent of song had
already begun to be used for his Master.
Coming to Indianapolis to attend as a
delegate from Newcastle the national
convention of the Young Men's Christian
association, Mr. Sankey attended one
morning a 6 o'clock prayer meeting, held
in the basement of the First Baptist
church, led by Mr. Moody. The singing
dragged, and Mr. Sankey, at the sugges
tion of a minister who was seated beside
him, started np the familiar hymn.
"There is a fountain filled with blood."
It went well and was followed by other
6ongs equally successful, and Mr. Moody
became so interested that he looked
about to see whence the new impetus in
singing came. After the meeting closed,
with characteristic quickness of deci
sion, Mr. Moody, hardly waiting for an
introduction, said to Mr. Sankey:
"You're the man I have loeu looking
for for the last eight years. Come and
lunch with Lie." Tlie invitation was
accept, ii. and later in the day the two
men got together, and the subject of a
future combination of forces was talked
over in downright earnest. Mr. Moody
pressed u-,.o;i Mr. Sankey the duty of at
ion e j'.i.-nn- t;;;:i 1H t nu ago. l.nt in
Sankey's mind there were some prac
tical :. joc:i. ! arising from his bnsi-nc-saud
f.iiuily ionn etions. 'Tama
government officer." he said to Mr.
Moody, "an 1 may fuel it difficult to get
released." "Th-re is a bett.-r srovt-rn-
is the re-
liieut to serve than this,'
piy tnat flashed iiistaniiy int. But,
persuasive :;s Mr. Moody -was. he did
not carry his point th' n and 'there. Mr.
Sankey t. .ok several maul lis in which to
consider the matter.
That very afternoon, however, the
first Moody and Sankey public, meeting
was held, with no advertisement except
the singing as led by Mr. Moody's newly
found friend. It was an outdoor gather
ing, and tlL masses were there. Mr.
Moody brought out a box from a store
to a favorably located street corner,
mounted it, and there a short but fer
vent service of preaching and song was
held. At the close of this ojien air meet
ing the two evangelists headed a pro
cession for the Acad-my of Music, where
the convention mel tings were held, sing
ing as they marched with the crowd in
to the Acad, my of Music, the convention
having adjourned the discussion of
"How to li"ach the Masses" and gone
to supi-er. When the deb-gates got
back to tlie academy building, thev
found it nearly 'naif full i f ihe very
"lapsed mass;-" about whom they had
been discussing. Mr. Moody cut short
his second address, dismissed the audi
ence and went out with Mr. Sankiyto
get something to iat. Mr. Sankey was
greatly iuipr-s.se 1 with those two "meet
ings and said to Mr. Moodv. "Yon are
reaching the masses while other people
are talking about, them."
After the convention was over Mr..
Sankey went back to Newcastle and
talked the question over with his wife
and family. He did not see his dutv
clearly all at once, but Mr. Moody kept
writing for him to come to Chicago and
at last persuaded him to go out for a
week to look the ground over. Arriving
in Chicago in the early lhorning, he went
first to Mr. Moody's house, reaching
there just as family prayers were being
held. Almost before Mr. Moody intro
duced him to his family he asked" him to
ting a hymn and thns contribute his
part toward the informal service of
praise. Then the two men went out
into the streets of the city visiting the
sick and unfortunate.
That day must have been a notable
one in the personal history of the two
men. who afterward commanded the
eager attention of great audiences on
both sides of the sea. On this occasion,
as two ordinary missionaries, they went
about, from house to house, singing and
reading the Bible and speaking the word
of cheer and hope wherever it was
needed. This was their first day's labor
together. Evening meetings were held
during the week in the Illinois street
church, of which Mr. Moody was the
head and leader.
On Sunday a large meeting was held
in Farwell hall, and as the organist hap
pened to be absent Mr. Sankey had to
sing without instrumental accompani
ment, not having even a small cabinet
organ there. The effect of the service
npon the people there was so marked
that Mr. Moody turned to the singer and
said, "You see I was right." There were
that night not less than 100 inquiries.
The earnest preaching and consecrated
6ong had gone home to many a heart.
From that time until the present these
men have been colaborers, and the story
of their career here and in Great Britain
is 60 familiar that it need not again be
