Madden, March 27.-I've heard and
read of wind and sand storms but 'if
I am any judge, we experienced one
through here last Wednesday. I nev
er saw sand drift like snow before. I
went to town that day, drove a young
horse that is not exactly partial to
wind and flying papers. When home
was reached, if I had belonged to the
rich I'd have sent foe' a doctor and he'd
pronounced my case "nervous prostra
tion" and ordered a sanatarum- As it
was I grabbed the camphor bottle and
told the chaps to hush!

the pleasure of hearing Dr. J. D. Chap

forget. Usually I don't like to hear a
sermon from a long text. This one
was seven verses from the 15th chapter
of John, the 10th to 17 verses-and
I would not have minded in the least
had it been longer! These thoughts
