5* A PRAYER
(By Mrs. Q. ,
PART I.
Down the inoitntati'i side n rider was
slowly wending Iiis wn.V. His horso
wearily stumbled along Hie bridle, path
but. his uneven gait was unheeded by
bis rider, who sat gazing Intently be?
fore bim Into the valley below.
'I'be smoke of many furnaces and
mining plants dimmed the clear at?
mosphere, and told of the ceaseless
activity there.
'Dow I wish.'1 he thought sadly.;
"that tin- people of Eastern Virginia
could boo <hi.~ country in nil Its as
pects, as It lbs before nie. Itullnns,
SwddCa; Hungarians?Indeed, people
of almost every nation, dwelling In
this little valley. No church bell,
with its sweet, homelike charm call?
ing the people to conic and worship
the ?Creatbr echoes-over hill and vaP:
ley, and Sunday Is only a name."
The sluggish creek ran on and
down the vallev and fording Its
depths, rider ami horse turned into
? he principal street of the settlement
Yesterday had been pay day, and tho
Sabbath was Tnll of unholy sound:;. I
The very air was foul with oaths of i
coarsest nature, and the ribald jest, I
followed by drunken laughter, was!
heard on all sides.
The young man unwittingly threw'
his hands to his ears, as something >
more dreadful yet. a drunken qUar
rel, bounded out along the street.
Thi> loud defiant language was quick
ly followed by an ominous sound, and
in an Instant an unnatural quiet reign?
ed within. Not the pence of the Sab?
bath, but rather the quiet of horror,
for a life lay ebbing away on the
floor.
'I'be young man lifted his eyes to
heaven. "Did Jesus die for these
poor sin-ridden people? Does he pity
their Ignorance and superstltiom"

George W. Ijxwmson, testified today ;
under cross examination that when j
he Inspected the guns on the morn-1
iag after the "shooting up" of
Brownsville, ho found Boven men
with guns that hud evidently been
in use.
"At an order from Mal- Penrose, |
who just then came up." said Lieut.'
lawrason. "I went off on another
duty, leaving those seven men and
?uns to Pohrosc and Captain Lyon!
for further inspection.
The cross examination which was
conducted 'by Colonel Glenn; wasj
very minute. Court adjourned with

It Is a good plan to wash figs and
dates before giving them to children,
or, for Hint matter, to any one. Theli j
sweetness attracts Insects, nud their
stickiness makes them a perfect horns \
for dust and its umlesirublo germs.
Yet most people seem never to think j
of this at all. Washing will not Im?
pair the flavor. On the contrary, It
makes them more agreeable to tho
sight and touch as well as to the
taste.
Versatile.
"It was as much as I could do to
keep from laughing when Miss Gusch
cr remarked that her flnnco was 'so
versatile.'"
"Meaning Duinley? Well, he Is rath?
er versatile."

Startled by ills own thoughts, he
groaned, "Oh Lord! forgive mo, I

should perish. Lord open Thou the
eyes and hearts of Thy people."
PART II.
The penceful Sabbath stillness was
over land and sea. and church going
Christians thronged the streets of
our Capital City.
The congregations gradually filled
the spacious edifice, and the minis?
ter rose to give his text: "And ye
shall he witnesses unto me both In
Jerusalem, and in all Juden and In
Samaria and unto the uttermost parts
of the earth." Ho told with burn?
ing words how Jesus had commit?
ted to us this great trust. Ho spoke
of the very valley of which we have
been reading; of the thousands of
Christ less souls, slowly parsing into
eternity.
His words settled Into the heart of
one listener, probing deeper and
deeper, and bringing Up the refrain.
"Inasmuch as ye did It unto one of
tho least, of those, ye did it unto
Me." "God forgive inc." ho pleaded:
on my side of the account for last
month, an automobile, fine clothes,
jewels for my wife and luxuries un?
told; on Jesus' side, my usual church
dues?hush?conscience money." Rais?
ing Iiis hands, he called out broken?
ly, "Stop, Pastor. Stop! Do not burn
the iron into my very soul, but let
me lay upon Cod's altar for State
Missions, the salary of one mission?
ary to toll these people about Christ.1'
A strange hush fell upon the nudi I
