LITTLE FOLKS AT THE RESCUE
(By Courtesy of Gathered Sheaves.)
The fact that the Oklahoma
Rescue Ifome exists is a wonder
t.o many, even to those who are
i§>charge. It business men \fere
to look the ground aiykkpawS
tfte visible prospect of W:ati9 'to1
deed, and beseech Almighty Clod
to bless and prosper them.
Our prayer is continually that
God will continue to bring to
pass in our case the words B
Philio$iafas^l,jl9: "But my
shall Supply a^l your needs, aC-
To the citizens ofGuthrie a ti 3
of the Twjin Territories,. who
haf^ liejpofl us by -their pr^|rs,
conversations, services, supplies

We truly appreciate the prayers!
of Godly people. It is always a

We are also thankful for those
people who bv their conversa-
tions recommend the Home and
the work it does, or if they do
absolutely know nothing to say,
that they say nothing.
Especially we call attention to
the very valuable services ren-
dered by the physicians of Guth-
rie, who have so faithfully served
the Home. In each individual
case they have faithfully, care-
fully, as well as skilfully,* per-
formed their work, for which we
respect and honor them.
Dentists have rendered us valu
able services, which we appre-
ciate very much.
Lawyers also have on several
occasions cheerfully given us
very valuable service, winch we
would especially call attention to
and thank them.
Ministers and church officials
have kindly permitted us to pre-
sent our work from their pulpits,
for which we thank them.
To plumbers, carpenters, and in
fact, every one who has done work
i®r us or favored us by cutting
the price, or in a fe%Y cases do
tratingthe work, we give thafiks.
We thank every one who has
given in any way, from thos3

me she will give a portipn of it to the
Rescue Home. She aiso'lielpefl to'sel

Nojv, Mrs. UtJlmes is not a rich
woman, neither has she a large in-
come, but simply gave this becaus^
she believes in Rescue work, after
staying in the Home as matron for
three and a half years. She also
starts a subscription for the building
with $100 and Mother Cook puts the
second #100 in.
Now, who will be the next to send
in money for the building. Those
sending money for the same please
state what it is for. We will be care-
ful to hold the money sacred for that
We are now and have been, since
the beginning of the Home four years
ago, living in two small dwelling
houses, sometimes accomodating as
many as 27 persons.
This present location we have of-
fered for sile, but above what we may
realize from this sale we will need
several thousand dollars.
The new location is a very sightly
one, only three blocks from the street
An Ungathered Sheaf, and Why?
Mrs. Pearl Holmes
In the common walks of life
we little realize how many
wrecked lives drift beyond
hope for the lack of an encourag-
ing word and a htlping han$ and
rire!lost to all that is good.
My first experience with a
wrecked life was some years ago
word or a helping hand were
soon informed that they would
soon loose their reputation ii
they continued to associate with
that fallen girl.
They seemed to forget that
lesus came tp seek and save that
which was lost. As time went
m she tried to live right, but
;ound little or no encouragement
rom any source. No one to of-
er her a home and no welcome
rom any but her evil associates
vhom she was endeavoring to
Her case was pitiful in the ex-
treme, no friends, no home to
help her on to God and Heaven.
One day 1 was talking to her and
trying to encourage her. She
broke down and wept as though
her heart would break and said,
"Oh, you don't know my temp-
It was only a short time until
she drifted out—only God knows
Often since entering the rescue
home I have thought if I only had
known of a rescue home and sent
her to it where she could have
received encouragement, sympa-
thy and love from consecrated
christian friends she might have
been saved from a life of sin and
Now, if this soul had received
the encouragement a fallen man
would have received she would
have been restored to a life of
usefulness and rectitude.
The word says, "Whosoever
will may come" and we should
without respect of persons invite
all to look to Jesus and live.
See Isa. 55-1, John 3 16 and Rev.
before I realized the great need of
tions of work to the smallest act ^ rescue homes or how hard it was
of kindness. We mention espe-
cially the friends who have so
uobly helped us by their cash,
for it is cash we must have to
pav the bills, and that we have
a gre.at many bills to pay is com-
prehended by any one who knows
the number of people we care for
Some have said that the county
kept this Home. This, of course,
is an error. However, the county
did pay for a few county cases.
We also thank the owners of
groceries, wholesale produce
houses, meat markets, mills and
lumber men, who have on differ-
ent occasions given us valuable
Now, lest there should be some
class that we have missed, like
the ancient Athenians, who for
fear of offending some heathen
god by not erecting unto the
same an altar, erected one altar
in honor of the unknown god, so
now we devote one paragraph to
the unknown donors or those who
may not consider themselves in
any one of the above classes. We
for a soul that had drifted from
rightousneis to gain a standing
in the world again.
I was visiting friends in a city
attending a revival meeting
which was being held at that
! place, there was a great interest
taken and many sought the Lord.
Among the many that became
interested in their soul's salva-
tion was a poor fallen girl.
How well I remember she used
to come into the church and sit
by herself and seemed to feel she
had no place there. She realized
her lost condition and wept bit-
terly. Finally some of God's
consecrated children that was
saved above the opinion of the
people and the jeers of the world
went to this girl and urged her to
turn to Jesus. After earnest
solicitation she bowed at the altar
earnestly repented and found
But how few were ready to
offer her a helping hand?
Many professed christians
acted as though they were afraid
of becoming-contaminated if they

Must Face the World
If there is one phase of our
rescue work that is more touching
than any other it is the fact that
these girls wlio have been robbed
and spoiled must some time go
out and face the world and must
suffer constant suspicion, cold-
ness and scorn from those with
whom they come in contact.
They must in some cases return
home and try to be cheerful when
their hearts are breaking because
of tender ties that have been
broken. Some one's home some-
where holds in its bosom a treas-
ure that was some poor broken-
hearted mother's loss. These
sorrows must be buried without
the sympathy of any one.
We should endeavor to so love
these sorrow stricken ones as we
would wish that our own friends
be loved under like circumstances.
Let us have that Christ-line
love that says, neither do I con
demn thee, go and sin no more.
General and heavy rains occur-
red on 22d, 24th, 26th and 27th,
and'local showers on the 25th
and 28th. The rains on the 26th
and 27th were torrential in char-
acter, accompanied, in localities,
with hail and high winds, and
caused considerable damage to
crops. Work was generally re-
tarded and sunshine and fair
weather is needed.
Wheat continued to improve in
condition, is heading and blos-
soming out, and though rusted

from too much rain and insects,
promises from a half to three-
Oats are heading out well, with
very little rust or other damaging
condition, and though sho't
promise a fair to full crop yield.
Barley, rye, flax and speltz are
doing well and heading out in
Broom and Kaffir corn, cane,
millet and maize are making good
growth and doing well.
Corn is being cultivated the
second or third time and is mak
ing a good growth; over the In-
dian Territory the continued rains
have retarded its growth, and the
plant is small, and fields are
weedy and need cultivation.
Cotton planting is about com-
pleted, and is up to poor to good
stands; owing to rains, it made
small growth; some chopping and
cultivation was done,' bnt work
was generally -tHardtdr ; sdrtie

and overflow was reported.

U. S. soldiers who served in Cuba
during the Spanish war know what this
disease is, and that ordinary, remedies
have little more effect than so much
water. Cuban diarrhoea is almost as
severe and danerous as a mild attack of
cholera. There is one remedy, however,
that can always be depended upon as
will be seen by the following certificate
from Mrs. Minnie Jacobs of Houston,
Texas: "I hereby certify that Chamb-
erlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy cured my husband of a severe
attack of Cuban diarrhoea, which he
brought home from Cuba. We had
several doctors but they did him no
good. One bottle of this remady cured
him, as our neighbors will testify. I
thank God for so valuable a medicine."

"All scientists agree that it is
older than anything else that has jc:ed
ever been found. It had fins like J
a fish, legs like an elephant and
its snort was like the bellow of a
buffalo, only larger. The eye
sockets are three feet eight inches
across and the ear drum was as
large as a soap kettle. It is esti-
mated that he could hear the tick
of a watch for thirteen miles and
could see people plowing for fall
