: The matter of the estate of Martha Pur
ser, deceased, has occupied the atten
tion of the county court most of the day.
The situation is rather a peculiar one. It
seems that in 1882, on the death of Mrs.
Purser, the homestead was sold for $3,
000." " At the time'Mrs. Purser, hot need
ing the money, divided it among the five
heirs, giving each $600, for which each
executed a note agreeing to pay (48 per
year to Mrs. Purser "until "her death, at
which time the notes would be cancelled.
The matter came up . today in ,the form
of an objection to the sale of the real es
tate, one of the beirs claiming to have
paid all hia portion and that the others
bad not, thus seeking to have the un
paid sums declared a portion of the es
The Evangelist on Wednesday
The Congregational church was well
filled yesterday afternoon, as Mr. Crit
tenton, accompanied by Mr. Carpenter,
came in. Mr. Wallace had conducted a
short praise service, before, this time,
using the old familiar hymns. Mr.
Crittenton, in his Bible reading oi) the
subject announced, ' "Consecration,"
brought forward many "passages, from
that book, showing that consecration
was one 'of its fundamental teaching
and said that if Christians lived as th
word taught, there would be more eonse
crated lives. He spoke of his own con
secration and how it . came about, his
fight with pride and thfc appetite for
tobacco and how the Lord , showed him
that he must give up all if .he would be
fully consecrated and that, he said, was
what all would have to do. Let go of
this old world to receive the joys that
come with a complete surrender of self.
TBI EVENING. , ' . .
The song service, closed, at . 8 o'clock
and the regular service began . at that
hour. The beautiful song, VThen They
Nailed Him to the Tree," sang by the
three gentlemen Carpenter, Crittenton
and Wallace is one of the best used in
these meetings. .The scripture lesson
was read from Luke 14, beginning at te
zotn verse, ana part ot tne xoia cDapt
an account of the Prodigal Son, aft
which Mr. Wallace sang in his best
style, "The Prodrgal Daughter.
, Mr. Crittenton said in commencing
that there . was a scripture that de
scribed every condition in life, and then
announced this text from Isiaah xiii-22.
"For this is a people robbed and spoiled ;
they are all of them snared in boles, and
they are hid in prison houses ; they are
for a prey, and none delivereth; for a
spoil and none eaith restore." He then
described how the work was begun in
Baxter street, New ; York,, when the
question arose where should the girls go
who wished to turn from a life of sin,
and It was found there was no place for
them to go; so Mr. Crittenton estab
lished a rescue mission on Baxter street
in New; York Cityrhere any time of day

class filled unknown graves. He said
