What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

CHAPTER I -Continued. -2- 'A voice calling, \Chuck ! Chuck! Chuck-a-chmk !' came from behind the old house. A few White -feathered fowls that hail been in sight scurried wildly away in answer to the sum- mons. Mr. Stagg, still looking at the little girl, set down the hag and reached for the dog's leash.

The pleasant back yard was qf swishing.

That pan was held in the plump hand of a very dignified -looking wom- an, dressed in drab and with a sun- rsormet on her head. Aunty Rose's appearance smote the tittle glrl with a feeling of awe. There was no frown on her face; It was only calm, unruffled, unemo- tional. It simply seemed as though nothing, either material or spiritual, could ruffle the placidity of Aunty Rose Kennedy. She came gut Quaker stock and the serenity of body and spirit taught by the sect built a wall between her and everybody else. \Child who are you?\ asked Amity Rose with some curiosity. The little girl told her name; hut perhaps it was her black frock and hat that identified her In Aunty Rose's mind, after all. .\You are Hannah Stagg's little girl,\ she said. \Yes'in-if you please,\ Carolyn May confessed (aintly. \And how came you here alone?\ \If you please. Uncle Joe salt) I'd better probly come ahead and get ac- quainted with you first.\ \'First?' What do you mean, - 'first?'\ asked Aunty Rose sternly. - 71rst-before you saw Prince,\ re- aponded the perfectly frank little girl. - \Uncle Joe thought maybe you , wouldn't care for dogs.\ \Dogs!\ - \No. ma'am. And of course where live Prince tuts to live too. So-\ \So you brought your dog?\ \Yes ma'am.\ \Of course,\ said Aunty Rose com- posedly, \I expected you to come here. I do not know what Joseph Stagg ex- pected. But I did net suppose you would have a dog. Where is Joseph Stagg?\ \i1e-he'8 coaling.\ \With the dog?\ \Yes ma'am.\ Amity Rose seemed to take some time to digest this; but she made no further comment in regard to the mat- ter, ohly saying: \Let us go into the house, C'arlyn May. You must take off your hat and bathe your face and hands.\ Carolyn May Cameron followed the stately figure of Amity Rose Kennedy Into the blue -and-white kitchen of the old house, with something of the feel- ing of a culprit on the way to the block. Such a lug kitchen as It was! The '\ lilt ii' girl thought it insist he almost as lug as their whole apartment in II:irk-In \put together.\ The tittle girl took off her plain black hat, shook back her hair mid potted it smooth with her hands, then plunged her hands and face into the basin of. cool water Aunty Rose had - e - awn for her at the sink.

I haven't a doubt,\ said Uncle Joe short- ly, and went out. Carolyn May went soberly back to her chair. She did not eat much lore. Somehow there seemed to be it bill 111111p in her throat past which she could not force the food. As the dusk fell, the spirit i uf loneliness gripped her 11111.1 the tears pooled behind her eyelids, ready to pour over her 4 . 1leeks at the least \joggle.\ Yet she was not usually a \cry-baby\ girl. Aunty Rose was watching her more closely than Carolyn May supposed. After her third cup of tea she arose and began quietly clearing the table. The newcomer was nodding in her place, her blue eyes clouded with sleep and unhappiness. \It is time for you to go to bed, Carlyn May,\ said Aunty Rose firmly. \I will show you the room Hannah Stagg had for ,fier own when she was a girl.\ \Thank you, Aunty Rose,\ said the little girl humbly. She picked up the bag anti followed the stately old woman into the back hall and up the stairway into Hue ell. Carolyn May Saw that at tin. foot of the stairs was a door leading out upon the porch where Prince W118 101W mov- ing about uneasily at the end of Isis leash. She would have liketl to say \good night\ to Prince, but it seemed better not to mentio this feeling to Aunty Rose,. The fading hues of sunset in the sky gave the little girl plenty of light to undress by. She thought the room very beautiful, too. \Do you need any help, child?\ asked Mrs. Kennedy, standing in her soldierly manner in the doorwny. It was dusky there and the little girl could not see her face. \Oh no, ma'am,\ said Carolyn May faintly. \Very well,\ said Aunty Rose and turned away. Carolyn May stood in the middle of the room and listened to her descending footsteps. Amity Rose had not even bidden her good night!

The Disciple's Relation to 'the World (Matt. 5:13-10). Christ saves with a definite purpose. The character of the subjects of the Kingdom is set forth in the Beatitudes. lie gives a . charaeter which will wield an influence. The whole mass of man- kind is shown in the Scriptures to be corrupt, and the whole world In dark - ma's -S. The disciples are to live such lives as will purify and enlighten. Their responsibilities are set forth un- der the figures of salt, light, and a city. I. \Ye are the salt of the earth\ (v. 13). Salt is that which is opposed to cor- ruption. It prevents the progress of corruption. The properties of salt are (I) Penetrating; (2) Purifying; (3) Preservi lug. Being salt, the disciples of Christ should penetrate, purify, and preserve -tsciety. Seeing on every band the festiring corruption of humanity, our responsibility is clearly set before us. The Christian should not go into se- clusion. He should remain in the werld, but not be a plIrt of it. Let us be sure that as salt we do not lose our , altsiess. Christians eill1O01 do good after they cease being good. • 2. \Ye are the light of the world\ (r. 14). Light Illuminates and. warns, Its gift is guidance. This world Is cold rind dark. Many tire the pitfalls and snares set by the devil. Christians should so live, let their light so shine, as to prevent the unwary ones from falling into them. They should guide the lost ones of earth so that they may tind the path that leads back home to the Heavenly Father's house. 3. The city set on a hill (v. 14). By a city is suggested a government- al and social order. Christian charac- ter and service should he so as to give the influence of the hill -lifted city. Christianity was not intended to be hidden, but to be made so conspicuous as not to be hidden. the grand objec - tive being to glorify God the Heavenly Father (v. 16). ii. The Disciples' Commission (Matt. 28 :18-20). I. What it is (v. 18). It is to tench, to make disciples. Christ's death on the cross and triumphant resurrection provided salvation for the world. \God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever belleveth In him should not perish. but have everlasting life\ (John 3:16). This great fact must be proclaimed to the world. The great commission is hacked by the urgency of human need and divine love and compassion for this need. The disciples are to ad- minister baptism in the name of the Trinity to those who believe, and teach them to observe all things which Christ commanded. 2. Its scope -all nations (v. 19). It Is as wide as the world, and this obli- gation lasts until all the world is evan- gelized. 3. Its sustaining power -\all power is given\ (v. 18). The divine energy Is back of all those who go. Since he Is with those who go the enterprise cannot fail. Opposition of the devil. sickness and death cannot thwart, be- cause it is backed by divine energy. 4. The superintending providence - \I am with you\ (v. 20). Though the disciples ma i be scat- tered far and wide, the divine Christ Is always present to comfort, guide and sustain. This presence is guaran- teed to the end of the age. III. Paul called to Macedonia to Preach (Acts 1611-15). 1. Circumstances of (vv. 6-8). While pushing on the work of evangelization on his second missionary journey, the Spirit forbade Paul to preach further in Asia. Doors b4Ing thus closed, there was nothing to do hut to go down to Troas. The guidance of the' Spirit Is as much by closing doors HS open- ing them. ' 2. Flow called (vv. 9-13). It was by vision of a man from Macedonia saying: \Come over and help us.\ 3. What called to do (v. 10). 4. First -fruits of Paul's ministry In Europe (vv. 14. 15). Love of the Father. God is my father and I am ids child. He has a father's heart, and I can count on the tender affections of that heart in the midst of all my feeble- ness and need.
