"Whnf's that?" the pastor asked In a

"We don't like some of the things
that are ftoln' on here, and 1 want to
talk to yon about 'em."
"Very well, but see If you can't talk
In a lower key."
"Never mind about the key!" shout

"But I do mind." Something in his
eyes made the deacon lower his voice.

"And who do you mean by 'we?' "
"The members of this congregation,"
replied Strong Impatiently.
"Am 1 to understand that you are

deep frown between the young pas

Then as deacon of this church you

here are my guests and not guests of

There was an embarrassing silence.
The deacons recalled that the pastor's
salary was slightly in arrears. Elver
son coughed meekly. Strong started.
"Ycu keep out of this. Elverson!" he
cried. "I'm rtinnln' this affair, and I

about sharply, "and my duty to the

No; there are other reasons."
