Tli.it always l.x ks so pleasant, says go
to Matt hews & Washburn, Albany, Or.,
to buy stoves and ranges, because they
only keep the best and always do as
they agree to.
An old ajvostle by the name of Paul,
a little more than eighteen hundred
years ago, wrote thus to some Oula
tiatis: "Ye did run well; who did
hinder you?" They started off with a
bound. They ran like a Grecian in
the Olympic sanies. All al nm?, how
ever, they c.ime to n dead halt. Xo
bedy was to blame but lite runners
themselves; what then was the mutter?
They had simply hal a lit. While
the fit whs on them they promised to
break all previous records. When the
lit passed off they went back to old
conditions. Modem people are nflJcted
with falling (Its, but here N ifently
a case of running fits. Th4jk.-st was
Utter than nothing while It lasted;
but the trouble is thl fits d(."yiat
long. A certain old doctoj., ,sted
that while' he knew but lit- ialMiul
tnedieiiiM, he could at almost frrrf time,
no matter w hat Hie disease was, throw
almost Miyoiie into fits, and then their ,
recovery wus sun, for he w as death on
fits. I cannot hut tlmt I covet the
powrr to lliniw er pie into fits, but I
would like to have the power tu nmke

a genuine tit and it was of the right
kind. If t lie spasm had only cotit in
tied there is no means i.f - knowing
what ttuy miub.t hove dime. Some
fits should lneured. Some should not.
The Hi Id.' is full of exhortations to '
peotdc to le pal ient, in stand, to con
tinne steadfast. This is my idea of
tits, something that is ix rinnnelit and
lasting. Thackeray cay a ill one place
that'a piece of slns'inaker's wax on
one's cha:r is two thirds of the secret
of literary siUMess. To stick to a thiiitr,
or, as the writer says, to ls stuck on it, .
makes it sure Unit one will succeed.
There is not the rush, and rattle, and
brilliancy, in plodding ulnti?, that there
is in having a fresh fit every day, but
the one who contium s in the old line
diss more work. Anyonu can sail at a
sriasl sjteed with a strong wind carry
ing him along, but to keep ahead
bravely, moving all the time, si ows
character and winning ijuality. We
want to lie careful that our revival
I worl. is not a succession of tits. There"
j are some people who ItTcve in that
I .-ort .f tiling, and thev Ulieve in it 8'
strongly that their chief object in life
seems to la? to throw people into fits.
Some evangelist or revivalist conns
(along with some new met hods, some
j new machinery, some new songs. At
. omv he gives some Hople fits. Some
! poor souls will a ! on st worship him,
t and they will praise him by disparag

I meetings, talk seme altoiit revolution
i i7.ing tlie church for awhile, and then

stayed on through fifty-two prayer

! lections! "Ye did run well" ye did
for a little while. Perhaps we shall
have something more to sa' about fits
