Fairfield, April 6.—"Oh Lord, visit
Fairfield with a cyclone of salvation,"
prayed Sunday last night. "Let a tidal

Such was the prayer Billy Sunday
poured from his heart at the tabernacle
last night, and the multitude before
him was reverent, with bowed heads.

Two Ottumwa Incidents.
During his sermon he related two In
cidents that happened in Ottumwa.
"I was in Ottumwa," said he, "and a
young man came to me and asked if I
would pray for a,_friend of his. I said
that I would and the fellow took a- seat
near the front. Pretty soon Captain
Hutchison, he was head. usher
brought down the aisle a young man
and showed him the seat right in front
of the young man who had made the
request of me. The latter at once
bowed his head on the seat in front
and prayed throughout the meeting.'
When the invitation was given, the
front young man was the first to pub
licly give his heart to God. After the
meeting the youth I had talked with
came and told me that the converted
man was his friend. He said he was so
surprised he didn't know what to do.
'Surprised at what I asked, 'weiea't
you praying for that very thing?'
That's the trouble with most Christians
they don't put any faith in their pray
Scores Police.
In his other incident Sunday told of
a heart broken Ottumwa mother ask
ing him to get to her son to have a
talk with him. Sunday said he was
informed at the fellow's working place
that he was probably at a booze joint.
But he declared he would go anywhere
to save a soul and he started the
rounds to locate the boy. He .was di
rected to the nearest one. Entering,
iVe- found a big, slit eyed, bull necked

diamond on his shirt front as bis as

"Transform Fairfield. Give grace to
to the mother and together we went
out to the family home. It was a sad
time out there with aged father and
mother praying and weeping for the
boy. They showed me all the mag
nificent property that belonged to the
wayward son. That night at the ser
first words, but soon sobered down and
in the end I led him to the altar,
where he knelt before his God. There
was a sudden cry, almost a shriek,
from the rear of the room, and the
woman who had talked to me In the
morning came down the aisle and put
her arm around her son who had been
born anew in Jesus Christ. It was
prayer that wrought that."
Earnest, conscientions prayer and
lots of It, was one of the main themes
in last night's discourse. The text was
Genesis, xxxii: 28 where is told the
story of Jacob's return to meet his
brother Esau. Mr. Sunday compared
the presents Jacob sent to his brother
to appease his wrath to the lives some
church members live in the hope that
they will stave oft divine judgment

He took another shot at the grafter
charge last night. It was called forth
by a speech by Rev. Charles Long of
Burlington. In it Long repeated a con
versation with a man who declared
Sunday to be a grafter. "He's a liar"
came with startling suddenness from
Sunday. After Mr. Long had testified
to the lasting qualities of Sunday's
converts as he had met them in his
church in Burlington. Sunday leaped
to his feet and to the front of the plat
form like a shot.
"A grafter is a man who takes pub
lic money for his private use," he
said. "In plain words, he is a thlet,
and if some of those people don't quit
calling me a thief pretty s'oon, I'll land
them behind the bars of the peniten
tiary. I wish one of them wouldn't
say it behind my back, but would have
the nerve to step up to my faco and
call me a grafter. Ooo! I'd back
slide long enough to give him one
soak that would stretch him on the
sidewalk so that he would be glad to
take the count, if I had to pay a fine
for it the next minute. Why, if I was
working for the money I get, I could
earn enough in two months to keep
me and my family in comfort for the
rest of my life. I'd snarw up the offer
of a Chautauqua bureau that has offer
ed me $250 a day for forty lectures.
What do you think of that? And yet
these people say I'm a grafter. Why,
if when the collection for me is taken
I only get enough to buy my ticket
back to Chicago, you won't hear a
whimper from me, although I'd lose
money, for I have to pay my assistants
$500 to help me in this revival.

reprobates who won't pay any atten
tion to a revival, handing a bunch to
the people who don't live their relig
ion and show it by cheeriness, bright-
ness and a
smile on their face's.
"Why," said the preacher, "from the
looks of a good many who profess to
be followers of God, the devil is the
only one offering enjoyment."
He told Fairfield people that when
he was here last summer he saw at
once what was the matter Ayith them.
"You look as if you ate: too much and
are too contented to sit still while
intellectual and all that, but you are
too easily satisfied with conditions to
try to stop thiis flow to hell of human
souls. Get out and preach and live
the gospel of Jesus Christ as found in
that old book over there. I was advo
eating the most extended use of the
bible one day when a man who pro
fessed to be a minister of the gospel,
loo, at that, came to me and said,
'Mr. Sunday don't you know that the
consensus of the latest opinions of
scholars and philosophers,' and Mr.
Sunday mimicked the man of whom he
was speaking. "To the devil with the
concensus of the latest opinions of
scholars and philosophers. It can go
Etraight to hell. I'm not preaching
that. If God didn't know more than
a lot of college 'profs' and other
stiffs, I'd have quit preaching long
"But lots of people don't follow the
bible in their lives. They go to church
on Sunday and blindly repeat the creed
and the articles of confession, but go
out of the church lea

for the other six days in the week."

attempt to resist going with the officer
nor did the youthful lover try to pre

Sheriff Jackson back to Ottumwa,
where Miss Knight was given into the
custody of her father and the officer
from Ollie.
According to Sheriff Jackson Miss
Knight claimed that her father had
been most unkind to her and his cru

at home that she decided to run away.
As far as is known no charges have
yet been filed against young Ruby,
