I'opyrip'' ' eil ind jmbltoliwl tn book form by the A1 iiicu'PubliBhiug Co. ot Chicago. CONTINUED. "Wliat was Hie first change yon ;'iadeV" asked Honry MaxwelL He felt i if his sermon conld wait for him in ' .a study. A the interview with Mil 'a Wright continued he was not so (rebut he had found material for a tfinon without going back to his study "I think the first change I had to 'take was in my thought of my em 'loyees. 1 came down here Monday 'turning ttfter that Sunday and asked iiyself 'What would Jesus do in his lation to these clerks, bookkeepers, IBce boys, draymen, salesmen ? Would le try to establish some sort of personal flation to them different from that .'hich 1 have sustained all these years?' ; soon answered the question by saying, Yes Then came the question of what t would lead me to do. "I did not see how I could answer it it my satisfaction without getting all ly employees together and having a alk with them So I sent invitations o all of them, and we had a meeting 'Ut there iu the warehonse Tuesday light "A good many things came out of 'hat meeting I can't tell you all. I fried to talk with the men as I im agined Jesus might. It was hard work, .'or I huve not been in the habit of it, tnd I miiHt have made mistakes. But I 'an hardly make you believe. Mr. Max well, the eiTect of that meeting on some if the men Before it closed I saw more '.ban a dozen of them with tears on 'heir faces I kept asking, 'What would lesux diii' mid the more 1 asked it the further along it pushed me into, the most iiitimt'.J'.-niHl loving relations with the men who have worked for me all these yearn Every day something new is eomiii'; rip. and 1 am right now in the midst of a reconstructing of the entiiv liusiiiess, so fur as its motive for hein' rutidm'ted is concerned 1 am so practically ii imrant of all plans for co nperaiiim mid its application to business that I inn trying to get information from every p.- siblu source. 1 have late ly made a special study of the life of I'ittis Salt the great mill owner of Bradford, '.upland, who afterward built that model town on the banks of the Aire There is a good deal iu his plans that will help But I have not yet reached definite conclusions in regard to all the details. I am not enough used (o Jesus methods. But see here. " Milton eagerly reached up into one of the pigeonholes of his desk and took out a paper "1 have sketched out what seems to me a programme such as Jesus might Ho by in a business like mine I want yon to toll me what yen thiuk about It.' "WHAT JUKI'S WOULD PliOBADLY DO Ut MILTON WKKHIT'B I'LAC'K AB A BUBINESS MAN "1 He would engage in business for the purpose of glorifying God and not for the primary purpose of making uiouey "3 All money that might be made be would never regard as his own. but us trust funds to be used for the good of humanity "3 His relations with all the per tons in his employ would be the most loving and helpful. He could not help thiuking of them all in the light of wuls to lx) saved. This thought would ulway be greater than his thought of making money iu business. "4 He would never do a single dis honest or questionable thing or try in the remotest way to get the advantage of any one else iu the same business. "5 The principle of unselfishness und helpfulness in all the details of the business would direct ita details. "0 Upon this principle he would nhupe the entire plan of his relations to his employees, to the people who were his customers and to the general busi otuu world with which he was con nected. '' Henry Maxwell read this over slowly It reminded him of his own attempts the day before to put into a concrete form his thought of Jeans' probable ho iou He was very thoughtful as he looked up uud met Miltou Wright's mger gaze "Do yon believe yon can coutinn to make your business pay on those line?' "I do Intelligent nnseltishiiesHoiiht to be wiser than intelligent selllsliucss, fon t yon think! If the men who work iu employees begin to feel a personal hare in the profits of the business and. more tluiu that, a personal love for themselves on the part of the tlrtu, won t tint result be more care, less waste, more diligence, more faithful- "Yes; I think so. A good many other bnsiness men dou't, do they 1 I menu us a general thing How about your relation.- to I lie sellish world that is not frying to make money ou Christian principles?' "That complicates my action, of nnrse. ' " linen your plan contemplate what Is fouiiug to be kuowu as co-operatiou t" "Yes. us fur as i huve goue. it does. As I told you, I am studying out my VtnilH carefully I am absolutely con ruii.tii that Jtts,ti iu my place would be mwolniely unselfish He would love all Miese men iu his employ He would ftniHiiler the umiu (uirtuxe of all the bum lies to beu mutual helpfulness uud OABTOIIIA. would conduct it all so that God's king dom would be evidently the first object sought. On those general principles, as I flay, I am working I must have time 10 complete the detail'." When 'Henry Maxwell finally leit Millon Wrilit, he was profoundly im pressed with the revolution that was deiiig wrought alieady in the business As be putsed out of t lie store he caught Kiinelliing of the new spirit of the place. There was no mit-taking the fact that Milton Wright's new relations to bis miployees were t egi lining even soi-om, lter less tban two weeks, to tranf-foim the entire business. ThiB was apparent in the conduct and faces of the clerks. "If Milton Wright keeps on. he will be one of the most influential preachers in Raymond," said Henry Maxwell to himself when he reached his study The question rose as to his continuance in this course when he began to loie money by it, as was possible. Henry Maxwell prayed that the Holy Spirit, who had shown himsolf with growing power in the company of the First church disciples, might abide long with them all, and with that prayer on his lips and in his heart he began the prep aration of a sermon in which he was going to present to his people on Sun day the subject of the saloon in Ray mond, as he now believed Jesus would do. He had never preached against the saloon in this way before. He knew that the things he should say would lead to serious results. Nevertheless he went on with his work, and every sen tence he wrote or shaped was preceded with the question, "Would Jesus say that?" Once in the course of his study he went down on his knees. No one ex cept himself conld know what that meant to him When had he done that in the preparation of sermons before the change that had come into his thought of discipleship? As he viewed his ministry now he did not dare to preach without praying for wisdom. He no longer thought of his dramatic de livery and its effect on his audience. The great question with him now was, "What would Jesus do?" Saturday night at the Rectangle wit nessed some of the most remarkable scenes that Mr Gray and his wife had ever known The meetings had intensi fied with each night of Rachel's 'sing ing. A stranger passing through the Rectangle in the daytime might have heard a good deal about the meetings in sue way and another. It cannot be said that up to that Saturday night there was any appreciable lack of oaths and impurity and heavy drinking. The Rec tangle would not have acknowledged that it was growim; any better or that even the singing had softened its con versation or its outward manner. It had too much local pride in being "tough." H.!t. in spite of itself, there was a yielding to a power it had never measured a in, l.d not l.uow well enough to resist beforehand Gray had recovered his voice, so that Saturday he was able to speak. The fact that he wasoi.lii. .;cd to use his voice carefully made it necessary for the peo ple to be very quiet if they wanted to hear. Gradually they had come to un derstand that this man was talking these many weeks and using his time ud strength to give them a knowledge of a Saviour, all out of a perrectly un selfish love for fheui Tonight the great crowd was as quiet as Henry Maxwell's djcorous audience ever w:i The fringe around the tunt was deeper, and the saloons were practically emptv The Holy Spirit had come at last, ana Cray knew that one of the great prayers cvf bis life was going to be answered. And Rachel her singing was the best, most wonderful Virginia or Jasper Chase had ever known. They had come together again tonight with Dr. West, who had spent all his spare time that week in the Rectangle with some char ity cases. Virginia was at the organ, Jasper sat on a front seat looking up at Rachel, and the Rectangle swayed as one man toward the platform as she ung: "Just I sm, without ona plot. Hut that thy bloud waa shed (or me And that thou bidst ma come to thee 0 Lamb ol God, I come, I comet" Gray said hardly a word. He stretch ed out his hand with a gesture of invi tation, and down the two aisles of the tent broken, Binful creatures, men and women, stumbled toward the platform. One woman out of tho street was noar the organ. THE BEST PRESSntPTiON IS Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic. The formula ij plainly printed on every bottle hence you know just what you arc taking when you take Grove's.

Price. c Virginia caught the look of her face, and for the first time in the life of the rich girl the thought of what Jesus was to a sinful woman came with a sudden ness and power that were like nothing but a new birth. Virginia left the or gan, went to her, looked into her face and caught her hands in her own. The other girl trembled, then fell on her knees, sobbing, with her head down I upon the back of the bench in front of ; her. still clinging to Virginia. And Vir ginia, after a moment's hesitation, kneeled dpwn by her, and the two i heads were bowed close together. I But when the people bad crowded in a double row all about the platform, most of them kneeling and crying, a man in evening dress, different from the others, pushed through the seats tnd came and kneeled down by the side of the drunken man who had disturbed the meeting when Henry Maxwell spoke. He kneeled within a few feet of Rachel Winslow, who was etill singing softly, and as she turned for a moment and looked in his direction she was amazed to see the face of Rollin Paget For a moment her voice faltered. Then she went on "Just at I am thou wilt receive, ' Wtlt welcome pardon, cleanse, relieve. Because thy promise 1 believe, 0 Lamb of God, I come, I comet" The voice was as the voice of divine longing, and the Rectangle, for the time being, was swept into the harbor A redemptive graca CHAPTER V U any man aerve me, tet him follow me. It was nearly midnight before the jervice at the Rectangle closed Gray itaid np long into Sunday moruiug praying and talking with a littla group of converts that, in the great experi ence of their new life, clung to the evangelist with a personal helplessness that made it as impossible for him to leave them as if they had been depend ing upon him to save them from phys ical death. Among these converts was Rollin Page. Virginia and her uncle had gone' home about 1 1 o'clock, and Rachel and Jasper Chase had gone with them as far as tho avenue where Virginia lived. Dr. West had walked on a little way with thorn his own house, and Rachel and Jasper had then gone on together to her mother's. That was a little after 11. It was now striking " midnight, and Jasper Chase sat in his room staring at the pa pers on his desk and gojngover the last half hour with painful persistence. He had told Rachel Winslow of his love for her, and she had not given her love in return.. It would be difficult to know what was most powerful in tho impulse that had moved him to speak to her tonight. He had yielded to his feelings without any special thought of results to him self because be had felt so certain that Rachol would respond to his love for her. He tried to recall now just the im pression she made cn him when he first spoke to her. Never had her beauty and her strength influenced him as tonight. While she was singing he saw and heard no one else. The tent' swarmed with a confused crowd of faces, and he knew ha waa sitting there hemmed in by a mob of people, but they had no meaning to him. He felt powerless to avoid speak ing to her. He knew he should speak when they were once alone. Now that he had spoken he felt that he had misjudged either Rachel or the opportunity. He knew, or thought he did, that she had begun to care for him. It was no secret between them that the heroine of Jasper's first novel had been his own ideal of Rachel, and the hero of the story was himself, and they had loved each other in the book, and Rachel had not objected. No one else knew. The names and characters had been drawn with a subtle skill that re vealed to Rachel, when she receivd a copy of the book from Jasper, the) fact of his love for her, and she had not been offended. That was nearly a year ago. Tonight Jasper Chase recalled the scene between them, with every inflec tion and movement unerased from his memory. He even recalled the fact that he began to speak just at that point on the avenue where a few days before he had met Rachol walking with Rollin Page. He had wondered at the time what Rollin was saying. To be cc inneit. ttQfANC,ADULTS VArt!' u Pier; ia, Cnills Qn(j I 3. MAKES 4 MAKES ?&?Pi Uniformed 8. P. Ptrters at S. P. Depots.
