It had become mora and mora the

to coma down from the city for the

' rarely went to church. It waa Mrs.
f Morton Harwood'a belief that they
, could be made to go to St. Paul 'a.
In regard lo this matter aba calkd
upon Jamea Kelvin, the ststlouvr, for-

Mrs. Htxwood. by the way, was not
quite able aa yet to do this herself, but
aha had one ftxjt over the threshold
? and could see within. She had reason
; to believe that the Rev. rhlllp Lee
I WInslow, member of one of the most
! exclusive families In tha country, could
; be secured for St. Paul'a. lis waa at
; present In charge of a chapel ef Grace
church la the city. .
"lie would be aa Ideal man for ua,"
aald Mrs. Harweod.
Mr. Kelvin had bo objection. lie
agreed to aee several other mea In the
matter,- and none of-then objected.-It
might sot be quit true to say that
i they did not care, but It Is certain that
; they did not exhibit the old time lnter-
set. However, they mustered a quo
j ram at the necessary meeting, and the
' Rev. Philip Lea Wlnalow waa called to
8t PauTa of Bayslde. '
! Mr. Wlnalow waa a tan, spare young
j ma a with a broad chest aad the gen-
eral look of ona Inured to outdoor ex-
eqrlsee. Hia blue eves were - very
' bright, partly by contrast with his
broosed skin, and his teeth were white
and perfect. Bayalde admitted that
he waa a "fine figure of a man." Ills
welcome came naturally from Mrs.
Harwood and her circle, and ble ap
pearance In the pulpit of 8C Paul's
was algnaUaed by the advent of sev
eral larga automobiles that never be
. fore had been seen waking outside tha
church. Be waa a success In the
higher social circles, bat singularly ,
enough his ova preference aeemed to
be for the company of the common
people and especially for Jamea Kel-
vln and Jhla family.
. Kelvin had a very pretty daughter,
Annie, nineteen at the time, and two
boys soma years younger. The Her.

Ton could bear the new pastor's
praises from any of the Kelvins, and
no one spoke 111 of him, though aome
aald. that be waa not overexerting
himself for the rejuvenation, of tha
church. The fact la that there' waa no
great change throughout the winter.
St Paul's drifted along In the aama
apathy as before. When toe pastor
was asked what be thought of It ha
would only aay; The altaatlon Is very
difficult I am endeavoring to get at
tha root of the trouble.'
2a March there cam to Mrs. Har
wood'a bouse a distinguished guest
He was a tenor of tho first rank, or

The count had been gaining flesh

the assaulted reporter bad obtained a
warrant not valid in Bayskle, which
la across the stste line. The Idea of
Kassimir'a staging la 8t Paul'a church
was very painful; but on the other
hand, there waa Mrs. Harwood to be
considered. Mrs. Harwood had come
forward in the midst of the church's
misfortunes, which bsd been many.
First the ok! woodeo edifice, which
had stood forty year, had burned flat
to the ground: then the new church,
built on another plot bad run foul
of a flaw In the title, which had cost
much money to straighten out aud

WInslow waa silent for full twenty
seconds, and then b answered gravely:
"I think the Lord baa sent nlm."
"He will sing at Easterr

It was rumored about the town next

It waa the afternoon of the Thursday
before Easter. The church waa open
and aome ladles of the congregation
were arranging floral decorations. Mrs.

possible ataee. He would dash up to

Into the semicircular roadway that led
from the street to the church door
with an astonishing clatter of hoofs and
with results very surprising to himself.
At that moment ona of tha Kelvin
boys, aupeiintended by Annie, waa
wheeling a barrow laden with potted
plants along a uarrow atrip of boards
that had been laid upon the mud. The
rushing steed came up unseen behind
the boy, who dodged for hla Ufa, up
setting the barrow, from which a great
mass of pots and flowers rolled under

on all fours without serious damage.

church. In this direction, however,
there waa no exit and the animal waa
not quite scared enough to daab him
self against a atone wall. He stopped,
and Kasslmlr caught blm and began
to beat blm unmercifully.
At this there was au outcry, and Mr.
Wlnalow, with others, came running
from, the church. The clergyman un
derstood the situation at a glance. Ha
