Excitement was ; waxmg high, 'mere was a group around the mourners' bench. In the rear of the room were seated two prom, inent Topeka ministers and a new-spa per reporter. i The colored parson recognized Dr. K. L. Loveland among the group of visit ors, but the question uppermost in the ! mind of the "reverend gentleman" was whether or net the other fellows had been sanctified. The Rev. Robert Gordon was ap proached by the man officiating at the meeting. "Brother, have you been sanctified?" he asked. "I think so that is according to my understanding of the term," was the reply. "When were you sanctified?" was a second direct question put to the pastor of the First Baptist church of Topeka. "At the time I was converted." Then for five minutes the visiting clergyman who was not recognized by the colored "divine" listened to a dis course on hov- i was an impossibility to be sanctified at the time of conver sion. The lattf held that sanctifica tion must necessarily come at a later stage of Christian experience. His at tempt to bring Rev. Mr. Gordon to the mourner's bench was without avail. Then the reporter was questioned in the same manner by the negro preacher. He didn't have a particularly clear idea of what the term "sancti fied" meant as used by the colored man, and as he was not prepared to go up front to the mourners' bench, he in timated that he believed that he had gone through the process of sanctifica- tion. The minister looked aggrieved be. caus the newspaper man in question would not go to the mourners' bench to pray for the unsanctified. Then the revivalist went up to the other member of the party, and said: "I'm glad to see you Dr. Loveland. I'm glad you brought these men here, and I hope you'll drop in again." "Thank you," said Dr. Loveland. "Brother, you have a great work here. Here's a dollar to help you," and at that moment an animatedly benign expres sion came over the face of the colored Darson. The three visitors left the room. This is the way it all came about The party of three were returning home via Crane street from a visit to the neighborhood of the Santa Fe shops, when a wail that made night hideous I was heard. It was evid tly a woman ' who was shouting, and it sounded though she were saying hysterically "He'a killing me: he's killing- me." The Rev. Mr. Gordon remarked subsequent ly that he had visions about that time of being called to the police court as a witness to a tragedy. When the party approached the small frame building from which the sounds were issuing forth it was evident enough that the woman was crying out "Hallelujah, hallelujah." and that after all no crime was being committed. Then some one in a deep bass voice shouted out, "Amen." It was plain that a re vival was in progress and that's the explanation. A number of those present in the audience possessed voices of unusual quality. The singing- of typical negro revival chants was carried on with enthusiasm. i The preacher ecame eloquent. He Xon-Support had no use for theology, but advocated KnccuiuKy ne lucu m -'i-jjcj i yj 1110 knees to illustrate the point. He ex erted his lung rower to the utmost.

N. 7 '-A VEXING QUESTION the Matter of Charge Against Bowser. i: ETcryfiofly Read the State JonrnaJ Does the mere fact that a husband and father neglects to pay for the pro visions he ordert for his wife and chil dren constitute non-support? If the provisions are in the house, whether paid for or charged to the husband's account, isn't the family "supported?" Isn't a summer-time provider entitled to some consideration even if he falls down on the job of paying for the gro ceries in the winter? These are only a few of the questions which are to be decided in the case of C. D. Bowser, brought into the probate court on the charge of contributing to the delinquency of three children. Judge W. F. Schoch has taken the case under advisement until Deo. 81, meanwhile or dering Bowser to pay $25 to the sup port of his family. There isn t any particular complaint against Bowser in the summer. He's a pretty good hustler it seems, although he is a little slow, according to Mrs. Bowser's testimony, about buying clothing for the children. But Mrs. Bowser's mother and Mrs. Bowser do this, so why should a man worry about it? But Bowser works in the summer and gets some money. . In the winter, however, it's another ' story. The examples of Grant and Lin coln, as well as the gentle persuasion of his wife fail to move him from the fire. He has a fondness for a well heated room that is remarkable. The fact that the grocery bill is unpaid and the children may need things doesn't drive him forth into a cruel and chilly world. Hence Mrs. Bowser's action in the probate court. The defense introduced evidence for the purpose of showing that Bowser did buy groceries and then the real story behind the case was made public. He didn't pay for the groceries ordered in the winter, his wife doing seven washings a week to keep in the good graces of the grocer. Now the court must decide whether or not a husband must pay for the groceries he orders before he is considered to be support ing his wife. Mrs. Bowser admitted her husband didn't beat her any more. There was a time, she admitted when he had done so. At present she admits that when she knocked him from his chair to a seat on the floor he didn't say a word or offer any resistance. "He knew better." Mrs. Bowser ad vised the court and attorneys. Bowser and his attorney established the fact that there were 15 bushels of potatoes and 5 bushels of apples in the cellar at the time the warrant for Bowser's arrest was Issued. But Bow ser hadn't paid for them, nor for other provisions in the house. There are three Bowser children, two boys and a girl. The oldest child la 14 years old.
