Cured by Faith.
The most remarkable instance of,
the ac beng Wealed by faith, we
have ever known, occurred in this
cogiry ecently. It iq qo remark
agle that it msy be calle4 a1zost a

&Ieon are past. And we *ould
esitlte to give the following re
port, knowing the incredulity of
the puplic on this snjeot, of this
regar* le cure it Itwas not

Mrs. Wimpey, wife of Col. John
A. Wimpey, of Norcross, lias been
qfflicted for twenty .year4 A' great
4i pbrtion of this time she has
been eonfined to her bed, and una
ble to walk a step. Even in her
better moments she was only able
,to wak 4cros tho room support

-estimeifl woman and bore'her af
flictions with rare christian forti
tude, hardly hoping that she would
ever be well again. She has lived
in Dahlonega,4tlaAta, and for sev
.eral years in Norcross, and has
tried all the remedies known to
medical science for relief, in vain.
Neither a chango of atmosphere,
the healing waters of mineral
springs, or learning #ad '.experi

any relief, and she was regarded
iby all her acquaintances as incur
During the recent District meet
ing at Norcross, there was a re
markable revival in progress. This
good woman felt a deep interest in
the great work, but was debarred
in the priviege of an active partici
)ation in it by her afflictions. One
morning she was assisted into the
parlor by her husband, and the
family leaving her alone repaired
to church. Left alone to her pri
vate devotions, she suddenly felt
her strength returning, and with
out doubting that her prayers had
at last been answered, she got up
-and walked across*the room. Fill
ed with rejoicing .at her sudden
cure, she hastily dressed for
church, and taking her Ril11e in
her hand, hurried on to the House
of G-od, where the eongregation
Before she arrived at the door
she was recognized and .the rnews
spread rapidly thvough the con
gregation. The services were sus
pended and her husband and some
of her friends'hurried out to meet
hier, whirle others sat still in blank
astenishment. On she came, re
fusing aill assistance to mount the
steps, she eintered the church and
wralked q>p to the alter, where she
exhorted ~tlhe peeciibe with great
~power and eloquence. Such a
scene has hecardly been witnessed
ain this genearation.
THow this wonderfid cur'e was
,effected remains a mysbery tto the
people and yrobably to her. "[
