Americans have worked wonders
there. For hundreds of years
the Filipinos have been dormant,

them up at a moment's notice.

Healingthe blind and curing
men of cancers are onlv ordinary
little stunts at the Penticostal
mission, where the "Tonguers"
hold their nightly orgies and
claim to get power from the
Holy Ghost to speak in foreign
languages and to write messages
in unknown tongues.
They claim they will soon
have power to raise the dead and
no doubt they will try to perform
this miracle and are only waiting
for on appropriate corpse to show
Saturday night Mrs. C. W.
Irvn, of Dallas, during one of
the most strenuous periods of the
meeting, while Sister Wiley, the
yellow girl trom JUos Angeles,
was chanting a wierd hymn ot
her own manufacture, arose from
her seat and said her eyes were
in a horrible fix, that they pain
ed her fearfully and she was al
most blind and that she wanted
to be healed.
"Heal me now, heal me now!"
she shrieked,' as she fell prostrate
atthedias. Mr. Ryan was at
that time doing a stunt in San
scrit stenography for the Holy
SDint and he remained oblivious
to Mrs. Irvin's suffering and kept
pegging away at his hierogly
phics. Mary Hanson, the little
girl medium, was seated at the
opposite end ot the platform and
her spasmodic jerks with the di
vine pencil grew all the
more rapid. She was
down a hvmn in Hebrew
When Mrs. Iryin goL-dorwn at
the altar, Sister Glasco, the big
Portland negress; Brother Wil
liams, the young soft-spoken
evangelist from California; Sister
Wiley, the star singer, and Sis
ter Crawford, from Los Angeles,
crowded around and laid their
hands on ' the blind woman's
head and all of them began to
pray in a loud voice.
Mrs. Irvin jumped up in a few
moments and began to shout and
pray and declared that she had
been instantly cured.
Mrs. Crawford's little girl to'd
an incoherent story about the
Holy Ghost curing her of the
after-effects of diphtheria and
her mother took th: floor and
elaborated on the alleged miracle.
Edward Saiith ot Dallas is in
almost daily attendance at the
meetings. He claims that he
has had one of the most marvel
ous cares on record.
They assert that Mr. Smith
was afflicted with a cancer that
was pronounced incurable by the
physicians and that he had the
"saints," as they term them
selves, pray over him, lay hands j
on his head and anoint him with
oil and that almost in the
twinkling of an eye the cancer
dried up and tell out of his face,
leaving only a hole in his countenance.
The little Hanson girl who is
more completely under the domi
nation of the leaders than any of
the others, said in a public talk
Saturday night, that she expect
ed this would cost her life, but
that she was willing to sacrifice
it. She does three or four hour
tasks at rapid writing in un
known tongues and during all
ibis time her right hand is going
at the most rapid motion possi
ble. All the while she seems to
be in a trance, her eyes wild and
lusterless and her face reddened
with an unnatural flush and her
nerves completely unstrung.
Mrs. Crawford claims that she
has the power to swallow any
kind of poison without injury to
herself and that when any one
has been baptized with the Holy
Ghost and with fire, poisons will
have no effect on them and that
thev may be raised from the
dead. .. .
It would-ereate -no surprise if
some 01 ther more deluded 01 the
followers should attempt to try
the experiment. There can b
no doubt that some of them have
been worked up to the pitch thst
they could easily be induced to
take prison or. do anything else
they are told to do by the lead

qualities that are ideal for it;
Mr. Griffith's supporting com

this engagement and there is
every indication of a packed
