Peter said, "It is so recorded in the | Book, enter in. i Then there came one in form of man but with the appearance of a beast. He had a club in his hand and gave the Pearl a great stroke. Peter opened in dismay. The object with the countenance of a heast said. "I am IT: I was born great; I achieved greatness, and had greatness thrust upon me. I want to see God. I understand there arc some undesir ables in here and I want them put : out. Pt-ter replied, "There is no record of it. and he told the two Arch Angels to take it and pitch it into hell and throw the club in after it. Then there came a care worn i woman dressed in ragged and soiled garments. She gave the gate a timid knock and Peter opened the gate and said. "Who are you and what claims j have you to enter into the realms of! eternal bliss?" The forlorn creature j said. "I have no claims at ail. My j name is Mary Ann; I am a wash woman; I did the best I could do; I am all worn out: the world has not been kind to me. but I hear there is one here wno said, "Come unto me . all ye that are heavy laden and I will ; 4i\e you rest", I am looking for him. Peter said. "The Book of Life so re- 1 : cords it: enter into the joys prepared j for such as you. arid there * was a great transformation. The car^ worn face become bright and angelic. The soiled garments were no more and j she appeared in shinning apparel j Mary Ann passed through The Golden Gate and was welcomed by the ihe ; one who had not where to lay his head.

The thing v. iih a treacherous smirk on its face read the superscription over the gates and passed an to the eleventh yate. the superscription over which read. "Su preme Judges". The thing with the smirk entered, was met by Tanney of Dred Scott Fame, and they feii on ? each others necks and wept. Their: tears caused a great Hood and the" foundation of the gate fell. f This awakened me. but I fell asleep j and dreamed that I stood again by J the Gate of Pearl. There was a great | multitude claiming admission. lii answer to Peter, some said they had done wonderful works. Some claimed to have built a great church, some a ; college, some a college, some a library some had built railroads, some canals, some had given much to charity, some claimed ;o have maintained "Law and Order", but Peter said. "The Book say 'Decency and Order) and I find no record in the Book of Life. You claim to have done great works, show me your hands. And) when they had shown them. Peter' said, "Liars ail, you ttever did work, you schemed, yoli reaped Vhere you had not sown. Robbers!' Perer said to the Arch Angels, "The Devil shall have his dues.
