The fle-t meeting of the two men
did not. occur until I it day or two after
they had arrived at, Indlanapolis, and

Ing the early:. liour for tho dervice,
Sankey determined to take advantage
o the o)l1oitanity to see. and hear the
man whom until that tine ho had bcen
unable to fled.
The distance to the little room whore
the prayer meeting was to bo helid was
much greater than Bankey bad antici
patod whon he arrived. He found a
seat, as he oxpressed it, in the "amen
corner," and sat down.
Bo had scarcely been seated when
somebody touched him on tbo eloow,
and turning around, be discovered that
he was sitting beside ihe lov. R1sbort
McMlllen, whom ho happened to know
quite well. McMillen asked SanKeY
to take charge of the singing at the
service, explaining that thore seemed
to be robody present who could lead.
At the conclusion of a very 1, ngthy
prayer, McMillon nudged Sankey, and
told him to start right in and sing.
Without waiting for any further invi
tation, young Sankey arose and sang
with wondorful feeling tho words :
"There Is a fountain filled 'with blood,
Drawn rrom immanuel's veins:
And sinners plunged beneath that flood,
Loss all their guilty stains."
The congregation forgot to join in
on the chorus, and Sankey finished the
hymn by himself.
Moody was well pleased with the
singing during the remainder of the
service. When the meeting wasn
brought to a close McMilion asked
Sankey to step forward and be would
introduoe him to Moody. A proces
sIon was formed which slowly made its
way to the front of the room, where
Moody was standing.
As Ban key drew near Moody stepped
out and took him by the han~d.
"Where are you from ?" Moody ask
"Pennsylvania," replied Sankoy.
"Married or single ?"
"Married. I have a wife and onc

All this time Moody had boon hold.

into his face wIth his keen black eyes
"Well, you'll have to giyo it up."
Sankoy stood amased and was at a
loss to understand just what Moody
meant by telling him ho would have to
give up what was to him a good posI
tion andi one affording him a very comn
Hie was so taken back for a fow see
onds thbat he could make no reply.
Moody, however, explained what ho
"You'll have to giveonp your govern
mont position and come with me. You
are just the man I have been looking
for for a long time. I want you to
come with me. You can do the sing
ing and I'll do the talking."
Sankoy had by this time partly rec.
covered from his surprise, hiut thu
thought of giving tip a good posItion
for an uncertainty was too much, and
he beggod for time in which to con
sider thle matter. Moody asked hhu if
he would go wIth him andl pray over
the question, anid out of politeness
Sankoy consentea. Moody prayed that
Sankew would see lisa way clear to do
as ho had asked, and Sankey argued
with himself agninst the proposition.
The two fInally parted and Sankey re
turned to hid room impressed by
Moody's p~rayer-, but still undecided.
That was on Sunday. All that day
and night Sanuke y thoughbt over Moody's
words, but tho next morning found
him still inolined to stick to the gov
ernment position with its salary assur

when he was more inclined to be

various parts of the city herfore suurieo
the next day while trying to savo their
home. The two evaugelists were now
without a homo In which to preach.
Moody tootc the first train out of Chlica
go and made a hurried journey to PnIl
adelphia, and ceon reture.ud with suM
cient money to enablo ILsjecongregation
to rebuild their church.
Prior to this time Moody had recelv
ed soveral letters from ministers in
fEngland inviting him to visit their
country. It -had been his dotiro tc
make a tour ol the world, and it occur
red to him thnt while hi# people were
rebuilding the. church it would be a
good time to take the trip. Tuis they
figured they could do and return befo'e
the work on the new church would be
completed1. With just er.ougrh money
to pay their passage to Londie., Mood~y
anid $ankoy sot sail for the old country
In 1873. The journey ascross was un
eventful, but when they arrived at the
other side of the water Moody found a
letter stating that, owing to the death
of the meen who had invited him to
England, it would he impossible to
have him make the visit.
Sankey was dismayed, but Moody
was confident that everything would
come out right in the end. Wit-h the
letter still in his hands, he turned to
Sankoy and said :
"Sankoy, If the Lord opens the door
to us, we'll go through. If not, we'll
g o back at onco to Amorica."
Neither had any money, and the
situation was anything but cheerful.
Moody found another letter in his
pockots which had heen handed him
before leaving New York, and which
ho neglected to open.
Tearing open the envepo, ho rapid
ly ran his eyes down the letter, andi,
quickly turning to Sankoy, exclaimed:
"Sankoy, tho Lord has opened the
door. We'll stay I"
The lettor was from a resident of
York inviting Moody and Sankoy to
visit his city should they ever come to
England. Thie iuvitation was gladly
accepted, and three days lator Moody
and Sankoy were holding mootings In
York. The attendance was at first
rathor peor, but Moody's sermons and
Sankey's hymns soon had their effect,
and it was not long before the meeting
platco was too) small to accommodate
the crowds. From that, on they met
with succoss, An incident that occur
roJl shortly after their leaving York iis
of interest in connection with Moody's
late illness. 'In their travels thoy came
across the surgeon general of IndIa,
and Moody qjuestionecd him closely
about the climate, 060 , of his native
country. Indila was one1 of the coun
tries the evangelists had proposedl
visIting, and when the surgeon general
heaord of this he madic a thorotug h phys
ical examination of Moody.
Looking the evangellst, squarely in
the eyes fori several seconds, the uur
goon general said.
"'Mr. Moody, If you go to India your
life will be shortenid ten years. - Th'ie
climate will affect~ your boar't."
Moody was dumbftoundedl for a time,
buit quickly recovering, lhe regretfully
"'All right, then, we won't go."
Tnis inter'feredn wVIt i thn proposed
trip around the vwor'd, but the two
evanglists visited many other coun
tries while abroad, conducting success
ful meetings wherever they wont.
The opinion of the sturgoon general of
Tndila in regard to M e. Moody's physical
cntion was apparently orr..m.

The fire came from sharpshooters In
trees and houses and fromu smali

The sim of the sharpshooters was
deadly and was directed at the officors,

began knoCking them out of the trees
like squirrols. Thec men rushed at the
trench, through the sort mud waist,
deep and passed over, leaiving' four
dead Filipinos within. At the same
time the regiment deployed as skir
mnisbers. The skirmish line, which
was nearlyv two miles long, rushed for

rice fields, ditches, creeks and thick
