' The body of Loreen lay in state at
the Page mansion on the avenne. It
was Sunday morning, and the clear,
sweet air, just beginning to breathe
over the city the perfume of opening
blossoms in the woods and fields, swept
over the casket from ' one of the open
windows at the end of the grand halL
The church bells were ringing, and the
people on the avenue going by to serv
ice turned curious, inquiring looks up
at the great house and went on, talking
of the recent events which had so
strangely entered into and made history
in the city. v
At the First church Henry Maxwell
bearing on hia face marks of the scene
he had been through the night before,
confronted an immense congregation
and spoke of it with a passion and a
power that came so naturally out of
the profound experiences of the day be
fore that his people felt for him some
thing of the old feeling of pride they
once had in his dramatic delivery.
Only this was a different attitude, and
all through his impassioned appeal this
morning there was a note of sadness
and rebuke and stern condemnation
that made many of the members pale
with self accusation or with inward
For Raymond had awakened that
morning to the fact that the city had
gone for license, after alL The rumor
at the Rectangle that the second and
third wards had gone no license proved
to be falsa It was true that the victory
was won by a very meager majority,
but the result wa the same as if it had
been overwhelming. Raymond had
voted to continue another year the sa
loon. The Christians of Raymond stood
condemned by the result More than a
hundred Christians, professing disciples,
had failed to go to the polls, and many
more than that number had voted with
the whisky men. If all the church
members of Raymond had voted against
the saloon,- it would today be outlawed
instead of crowned king of the munici
pality. That bad been the fact in Ray
mond for year. The saloon ruled. No
one denied that. What would Jesus dot

tiiiiig more than the logical sequence or
the- whole horrible system of license
that for another year the saloon that
receivm! hnr no often andjxmvDassed her
degradation, from wnose very spot tus
weapon bad reen nnrled tbat struck ner
dead, :-. would by the law which the
Christian people of Raymond voted to
support open its doors, perhaps tomor
row, and damn with earthly and eternal
destruction a hundred Loreens before
the year had drawn to its bloody close?
: All this, with a voice that rang and
trembkd and broke in sobs of anguish
for the result, did Henry Maxwell pow
out upon his people that Sunday morn
IngV and men' and women wept as he
spoke. Donald Marsh sat there, his
usual erect, - handsome, firm,' bright,
self confident bearing all gone, hia
head bowed upon his breast, the great
tears rolling down his cheeks, unmind
ful of the fact that never before had he
shown outward emotion in a public
service. - Edward Norman near by sat,
with his clear cut, keen face erect, but
his lip trembled and he clutched the end
of the pew with a feeling of emotion
that struck deep into his knowledge of
the truth as Maxwell spoke of it. No
man had given or suffered more to in
fluence public opinion that last week
than Norman. The thought that the
Christian conscience had been aroused
too late or too feebly lay with a weight
of accusation npon the heart of the
editor. What if he had begun to do
as Jesus would long ago? Who could
tell what might hava been accomplished
by this time? And up in the chon
Rachel Winslow, with her face bowed
on the railing of the oak screen, gave
way to a feeling she had not yet al
lowed to master her, but it so unfitted
her for her part that when Henry Max
well finished and she tried to sing the
closing solo after the prayer her voice
broke,' and for the first time in her life
she was obliged to sit down sobbing and
unable to go on.
Over the church in the silence that
followed this strange scene, sobs and
the noise of weeping arose. When had
the First church yielded to euch a bap
tism of tears ? What hi become of its
regular, precise, cold, conventional or
der of service, undisturbed by any vul
gar emotion and unmoved by any fool
ish excitement? But the people had
lately had their deepest convictions
touched. They had been living so long
on their surface feelings that they had
almost forgotten the deeper wells of
life. Now that they had broken to the
surface the people were convinced of
the meaning of their discinleshib.
lngs Had Deen characterized by distinct
impulses or impressions. Today the en
tire force of the gathering seemed to be
directed to this one large purpose. It
was a meeting full of broken prayers,
of contrition, confession, of strong
yearning for new and better city life,
and all through it ran the one general
cry for deliverance from the saloon and
its awful cone.
But if the First church was deeply
stirred br the. events of the week goao
the Kectangle also telt moved, turongiy
in Its own way. The death of . Loreen
was not in itself so remarkable a fact
It was her recent acquaintance with
the people from the city that lifted her
into special prominence and surrounded
ber death with more than ordinary im
portance. Every one in the Rectangle
knew that Loreen was at this moment
.lying in the Page mansion up on the
avenue. 1 Exaggerated reports of the
magnificence of the casket had already
furnished material for eager gossip.
The Rectangle was excited to know the
details of the funeraL .'Would, it be'
public? What did Miss Page intend to
do? The Rectangle had never before
mingled even in this distantly personal
manner with the aristocracy on the
boulevard. The opportunities for doing
so were not frequent. Gray and his
wife were besieged by inquiries as to
what Loreen' s friends and acquaint
ances were expected to do in paying
their last respects to her, for her ac
quaintance was large, and many of the
recent converts were among her friends.
So that is how it happened Monday
afternoon at the tent that the funeral
service of Loreen was held before an
immense audience that choked the tent
and overflowed beyond all previous
bounds. Gray had gone to Virginia,
and after talking it over with her and
Henry Maxwell the arrangements had
. "I am and always have been opposed
to large public funerals," said Gray,
whose complete, wholesome simplicity
of character was one of its great sources
of strength, "but the cry of the poor
creatures who knew Loreen is so earnest
that I do not know how to refuse their
desire to see her and pay her poor body
some last little honor. What do yon
think, Mr. Maxwell? I will be guided
by your judgment in the matter I am
sure that whatever you and Miss Page
think is best will be right. "
"I feel as yon do," replied Mr. Max
well. "Under most circumstances I
have a great distaste for what seems
like display at such times, but this
seems different The people at the Rec
tangle will not come here to a service
I think the most Christian thing will
be to let them have the service at the
tent Do you think so, Virginia?"
"Yes," said Virginia sadly. "Poor
soul! Ido not know but that some time
I shall know she gave her life for mine.
We certainly cannot and will not use
the occasion for vulgar display. Let
her friends be allowed the gratification
of their wishea. I see no harm in it "

some difficulty for the service at the
tent and Virginia, with her uncle and
Rollin, accompanied by Henry Max
well, Rachel, President Marsh and the
quartet from the First church, went
down and witnessed one of the strange
scenes of their Uvea It happened that
that afternoon a noted newspaper cor
respondent was passing through Ray
mond on hs way to an editorial con
vention in a neighboring city. He heard
of the contemplated service at the teat
and was present that arWnoon. U"!
description of it was written in up;. i
io style that caught the attention o:
very many readers the next day. V
fragment of his account belongs to th!:i
part of the history of Raymond: .
, "There wa very unique and rn i
nsual funeral service held here tiiia'.il '
ernoon at the tent of .an evangelist ;
Rev. John Gray, down in the slum dis
trict known as the Rectangle.. .The oc-'
casion was caused by the . killing of a
woman during an election riot last Sat-;
urday night. It seems she had been re- i
cently converted during the evangelist's
meetings and was killed while return-,
ing from one of the meetings in com-:
pany with other converts and some of
her friends.' She was a common street'
drunkard, and yet the services at the!
tent were as imp. ssive as any I ever
witnessed in a metropolitan church over
the most distinguished citizen.
"In the first place, a most exquisite
anthem was sung by a trained choir. It
struck me, of course, being a stranger
to the place, with considerable astonish
ment to hear voices like those one nat
urally expects to hear only in great j
churches or concerts at such a meeting
as this, but the most remarkable part
of the music was a solo sung by a strik
ingly beautiful young woman, a Miss
Winslow, who, if I remember rightly,
is the youn singer who was sought for
by Crandal, the manager of National
Opera, and who for some reason. refused
to accept his offer to go cn the stage.
She had a most wonderful manner in
.singing, and everybody was weeping
before she had sung a dozen words.
That, of cor.rse, ia not so strange an
effect to be produced at a funeral sorv
lce, but tne voice itseir Avas one or ten
thousand. I understand Miss Winslow
sings in the First church and could
probably commund almost any salary as
a public Binder, fche will probably be
heard from soon. Such a voice could
win its way anywhere.
"The service, aside from the singing,
was peculiar. Tho evangelist, a man of
apparently very simple, unassuming
style, spoke a few words, and he was
followed hy a fine looking man, the Rev.
Henry Maxwell, pastor of the First
church of Raymond. Mr. Maxwell
gjioke of the fact that tho dead woman
had been fully prepared to go, but he
spoke in a peculiarly sensitive manner
of the effect of the liquor business on
the lives of men and women like this
one. Raymond, of course, being a rail
road town and the center of the great
packing interests for this region, Is full
of saloons. I caught from the minister's
remarks that ha had only recently
changed his views in regard to license.
He certainly mado a very striking and
yet it was in no soma an inappropriate
address for a funeral.
"Then followed what was perhaps
the queer part of this strange service.
The women in the tent, at least a large
part of them up near the coffin, began
to sing in a soft, tearful way, 'I was
a wandering sheep.
"Then, while the singing was going
on, one row or women stood up-
walked slowly past the casket, and as
they went by each one placed a flower
of some kind on it Then they sat down,
and another row filed past, leaving
their flowers. All the time the singing
continued softly, like rain on a tent
cover when the wind is gentle. It was
one of the simplest and at, the same
time one of the most impressive sights
J ever witnessed.' The sides of the tent
Were up, and hundreds of people who
could not get in stood outside, all as
still as death,' with wonderful sadness
and solemnity for such rough looking
people. , There must have been a hun
dred of these womon, and I was told
many of thorn had boen converted at
the meetings just recently.; I cannot de
scribe the etfect (,f that flinging. Not a
man saiv? a i.o i all women's voices,
and po soft firi'l y 1 10 diinct that the
effect wbh KturtLn-?.
"The sorv'ce c! sod with another solo
by Minn YT .n !iw. vim sang 'There
were nliwiy I ; ;und then the
evnri-rnfet n ;rf;l "t'tc i ull to bow their
heads v.-hila h i r-tayea. ' I was obliged,
in order to cat'.Ii t::y train, to leave
during tho pr.i'-rr. utnl I lie last view I
caught of thj t.c.'no 11s tho train went
by the Khopj wiis u eijht of the great
crowd por'.riii'r out of the tent and
forming in open ranks while the coffin
was tame out by uix of the women. It
is a long timo since I have seen such a
picture in this unpoeticul republic. "
If Loreen 's funeral impressed a pass
ing stranger like this, it is not difficult
to imagine the profound feelings of
those who had been so intimately con
nected with her lifo and death. Noth
ing had ever entered the Rectangle that
had moved it so deeply as Loreen's body
in that coffin, and the Holy Spirit
seemed to bless with special power the
use of this senseless clay, for that night
at the meeting he swopt more than a
score of lost souls, mostly women, into
the fold of the Good Shepherd.
It should be said here that Henry
Maxwell's statement concerning the
opening of the saloon from whose win
dow Loreen had been killed proved
nearly exactly true. It was formally
closed Monday and Tuesday while the
authorities arrested, the nroprietor,
