winter and the pastor was in finan

flock decided to meet It his bouse
and- offer prayers for the speedy
recovery of the sick ones and for
material blessings upon the pas
tor’s family. While one of the
deacons was offering a fervent
prayer for blessings upon the pas
tor’s household there was a loud
knock at the door. When the
door, was opened a stout farmer
boy was seen, wrapped up com

“Brought pa’s prayers? What
do you mean?”
“Yep; brought his prayers, an’
they’re out in the wagon. Just,
help me an’ we’ll get ’em iu.,”..
Investigation disclosed the fact
that “pa’s prayers” consisted of
potatoes, flour, bacon, corn meal,
turnips, apples,^ warm clothing
and a lot of jellies for the sick
ones. The prayer meeting ad
