They had a happy half-hoar at tha table, Mrs. Brtmataad balng la bettor Vlrlta since her haahand had got baek to hla farming.

Td rather sea tha fare." Joe ra marked, whereupon they all laaghad and tha boy bluahad to tha roots of hla blond hair. "He's become a maa af good Judg ment," aald P rl mat sad. Annabel's slater Jane, who had ctong ta tha wagon In Na Santa aaaa Land, was a brtght-aysd, merry hearted girl af twelve. The boy Ron art waa a any, good -looking lad a llltla older than Joalah. "Well, whit's tha dcwsT" Samson asked. "Nothla has happened since -we saw yoa bat the fall of Fa Dorado," Brlmstaad answered, "There was the robbery of the mall stage last summer a few miles north of here," aald Mrs. Brtmstead. "Every smltch of the mall waa stolen. I gneas that's the reasoo we haven't had n let tec, from Vermont In a year." "Maybe thars why wa havenl heard from home," Samson echoed. "Why dont yoa leave Joe here while you're gone to ChJcagor Anna bel asked. "It would help hla education to raaale a round with Robert aa' tha glrla." aald Brlmetcad. "Would yoa like ta stay 7" Samson asked. "I wouldn't mind." aald Joalah who, on the lonely prairie, had had few companions of his awn age. So It happened that Samson went on alone. Near the sycamore woods he came upon a gray. haired msa lying by the roadklde with a horse tethered near him. The stranger waa itck with a fever. Sameno got down from his home. "What can I do for you r he asked. "The will of Clod," the stranger f nobly answered. "I prayed for help and yoa have coma. I am Peter Cart' wrlght the preacher. I waa ao sick and weak I had to get off my horse and lie down. If yoa had not coma I think that I should have died here," Samaoa gave him some of the medi cine for chills and fever which he at ways carried In hla pocket, and water from hla canteen. "Is there any houee where I could And help and shelter for yooT ha asked present ly. "No, but I feel better glory to God P aald the preacher. "If yoa can help me to the back of my horse I will try to ride on with yoa. There Is to be a quarterly meeting ten mllea up the mad tonight Nothing shall keep me frota my duty. I may aave a dosen annra from hellwho knows T" ftameon was astonished at the Iron will and holy seal of tble Iron-hearted, atmng-armed, fighting preacher of the pralrlea of whom he bad heard muclu He lifted blm and set him on the back of hla horse. "God bleaaed yoa with great strength," aald the latter. "Are yoa a Christian r "I am." They rode on In silence, preaently Samaon ohaerved that tha preacher waa actually aaleep and snoring In the saddle. They proceeded for an hour or mora la this manner. When the horses were wallowing through a awale the preacher awoke, "Glory be to God T he shouted. "I am better. I shall ba able to preach tonight A little farther on la tha cabin of Brother Cawklna. Ba haa been terribly pecked up by a stiff- necked, rebel! loua wife. We'll atop Aa a Counter Demonstration, there for a cup of tea and If she raises ruiupue you'll aaa ma take har by the hoius." Mrs. Uswklns waa a lean, sallow, stern-faced woman of soma forty years with a face like bitter berba; her husband a mlldinauoered, ahlftleae maa who, encouraged by Mr.- Cart- wright had taken ta riding through tha upper oouutloa aa a preacher a course of conduct af which hla wife bearUly dlaatipruved. , Solicited by hai THE hnshand she aulleoly made tea for tha traveler. When it tied bean drank Mm two preachers knell la af the raora and Mr. Cartwright began to pray w a toad Voice, Mrs. Caw kins shoved tha table about and tipped over the chairs and dropped tha roll ing pin as a counter demonstration. The famous circuit rider being ta ae way nut oa by this, she dashed a dip per af ceid water an Uia head of her husband. Tha praying mopped.' Mr. Cartwright rone from his kneea aad commanded her ta desist Oa her declaration that she would not ha laid hold of the woman and forced her out af tha door and cloned and boltetj It and resumed his praying. Having recorded this remarksbla In cident In his diary, Bsmaon writes l "Many of these Ignorant people la the lonely, prairie cablna ara Ilka chll drea. Cartwright leads them on .like a father and sometimes with tha strong hand. If sny af them deserve a spanking they get It Ra and others like him have helped to keep tha cabin people clean and going up hill Instead of down. They here established schools and missions and scattered good hooka and comforted aerrows and kindled good desire In tha hearts of the bumble." As they were leaving. Mr. Cawklaa told them thst the plague had broken out In tha settlement on Honey creek, where tha quarterly meeting waa ta be held, and that the people had been rapidly "dyln' oft" Bamson knew from this that the smallpox dreaded and terrible scourge of pio neer days hsd coma again. "IPs dsngerous to go there," aald Cawklna. '"Where Is sorrow there Is ay proper place," Cartwright answered. "Thane people need comfort and the help of God." . "I got a letter from a lady thara," Cawklna went on. "Aa nigh aa I can make out they need a minister, t can read print bandy but wrltln' bothers ma. Toa read It brother." Mr. Cartwright took the letter and read aa follows: Dear Sir: Mr. Barman gave me your name. Wa need a minister to comfort the sick sod help bury tha dead. It Is a good deal to ask of yoa but If you fuel Ilka taking the chance of coming here I am aura yoa ro -M do a ki of Bood- Wa have doctors ruough and It aeems a pity that the church should fsll theae people when they ! need It moat. If you have the courage to come yoa would win the gratitude of many people, for a month I have been taking care of the sick and op to now no harm haa come to me. "Tours respectfully, ' "BIM KELSO." "'A ronn a heart devlseth his way but the Lord dlrecteth hla steps,' "aald Cartwright "For three days I have Mt that He waa leading me." "I begin ta think that He hag beea leading me," Samaoa declared. "Blm Kelso la the pt-raon I seek: "I would have gone bat my wife took on so I couldn't get away," aald Cawklna. Til come back some day soon and yoa and I will pry the devil eat of her with the crowbar of God'a truth and merry." Cartwright aaaured him aa hs and Samson took tha road ta the north. On their way to the Honey creek settlement the lion-hearted minister told of swimming through flooded rivers, getting lost on the plains and L-suffering for food snd water, of lying down to rent at night la wet clothes with no shelter but the woods, of hand to-hand fights with rowdies whs en' deavored to sell drink or create a dis turbance at his meetings. Such was tha seal for righteousness woven by many handa Into tha fabric of the West A little before sundown they reached the settlement Samaon aaked a maa In tha road If he knew where they could find the ourae Blm Kelso. "Do ye mean that angel a' God la a white draaa tnat takes keer V the sickr the suae asked. .

Thst article In the paper waa a cruel mistake." After a little silence Blm rose from tha ground. 8he stood, for a moment wiping her eyes.

There wss a wondecul and touching dignity In her voice and manner when ahe asked : "Why didn't he write to mer "He must have written to you."

Paul Before Agrippa (23:18-. 26:27). 1. The occasion (25:18-27). TUa was the visit of Agrippa and Barniaa to Festua. Upon their asrivai they expressed a desire to hear " Pant, whereupon Festua told then of hla. perplexity ; ao It was arranged that Psul be brought before them far ex amination. 2. The defenae (23:1-27)(1) The' Introduction (w. 1-3). In thla he ex pressed bis delight that he spesk and tell his case to wss able to follow hla Ilea of argu ment, for Agrippa waa an expert at questions concerning the Jews; bat moat of all be was now happy la that he could witness to him of the Sevier and perhapa lead him Into aha Bght of God. (2) In his manner of Ufa (rv. 4-12). This he showed and been In strictest accord with the i rigid sect of tha Jews. Ba ; the same hope that of a coming De liverer an reminded them of tna fact that formerly ha waa snoot bit terly opposed to Christ, aa hla seat would prove. These facts make tna change from t persecutor to an ar dent advocate all tha more able. (3) Bis supernatural ston (w. 15-13). Jeeua Christ aa peered to him on the way to Da mas cus and revealed himself to him. (a) Jeeua Christ commissioned htm for Ma work (vv. 16-18). Ba waa sent anas the Gentiles (a) to open thetr eyes, so awfully blinded; (b) to perform the blessed work of turning them frees darknesa to light; (c) to turn them from the power of Sataa una Ood; (d) thut they might receive forgive ness of slna; (e) and that they might obtain an Inheritance among tne saints. (S) Ills con hoc ration (w. 1 23). As anon aa he received his com mission he otieyed.

Whether this answer la a eontempte oua sneer or not. It Is evident that ha soul was unwilling to yield. Paat took Agrippa seriously.
