CHAPTER IX "DENNY SINGER was happy. Whenever he went io town on errands for Tom Carr, he went without shrinking from encounters with his old tormentors. "Hey, Benny! Look, kids, here's old crazy Benny!" He didn't mind being called "crazy Benny." Not now. He had a job. He worked for Madame, and Tom Carr was his friend. There was not a cloud in Benny's sky. Once or twice Tom Carr talked to Parris about Benny. "He's, a little like Lucy, sometimes. You know, Sonny, people that are a little oft that way are just like a string of. beads that's come undone. The beads roll around any which-a-way. It there was some way of getting them on the string again, they'd be all right. Doctors do some right wonderful things when it comes to cutting' people open and sewing them up again, but they're not so far along with people's brains." Parris had heard Tom say all of this so many times. "You know what I'd do if I was you?" The old man's sharp eyes shadowed with the gravity of his feelings. "I'd study that if I was you." "Be a doctor for—for—" He didn't like to say "crazy people" to Tom. "Yes, sir, Sonny, for crazy people. May be that nobody's found out much about it yet, but it seems to me it would be a grand thing lo study. People like Benny, and -—like Lucy. Not real crazy, you know, Sonny, just off a little. II there was just some way of holding them together again . . ." • Parris was pretty sure now that he would like to be a doctor. But he thought he'd rather drive two fiery bay horses like Dr. Gordon and go around saving people's lives. Suddenly he recalled that day Dr. Gordon operated on Willy Macintosh's father. He remem- oered the terrible yells that came from that upper window. He realized that he loved this Dlace—this, right here, the ground,' [he crisscross pattern the wiry rass made, the shiny red stems of vines, the dusky blue coat on winterberries. It was familiar and comfortable. But even in that instant a small unease returned. He knew what the feeling was, and what it came from. Other boys had parents who were not so old as his grandmother. They had brothers and sisters and relatives. He had only liis grandmother. What would happen when—when—? He couldn't say the word even to himself. Then—all of this would be gone somehow. Where would he go? * * * TV/TADAME VON ELN sat on the terrace that same afternoon talking with Dr. Gordon and Colonel Skeffington. Upstairs, Anna nnd another maid stood looking down at the three. Anna shook her head. "When a body sends for a doctor and a lawyer at the same time—" Anna began to cry silently. "You see, Colonel," Madame was saying. "I must be sure that I arrange everything. The boy has no one—no one in the world but me." ' *. Colonel Skemngton folded and unfolded his gold-rimmed glasses. "Yes, yes. Of course. You know, Madame, if anything should happen to you—unexpectedly—" "It wouldn't be unexpected, now, Isaac." "Well, well, now. 'What I was going to say is this: if—if your grandson finds himself alone, he can come to me any time, for as long as he wants to. Fine boy he is. Rather make a lawyer of him, though, than a doctor." "Thank you, Isaac. I know your generous heart. I—I think Parris leans to medicine as much as to anything—except, maybe music." Colonel Skemngton looked hard at her. "I have to be blunt, Marie. How much time do you think you have?" Madame looked at Dr. Gordon. "Madame has a year, maybe two—two at best." The Colonel looked steadily at Madame for a moment. "Parris, you say, has made good progress with his tutors?" Dr. Gordon asked the question in a sudden matter-of-fact tone. "Excellent, Doctor. His tutors say he is far ahead of the high- school classes." "Then we must put him in Aberdeen, at once. But it will save time if he reads medicine with someone for a couple of years. Then he can take examina- (ions and save much time." Dr. Gordon hesitated. "I'm going to make a suggestion you may not approve. But there is one man who could do more for him in such a wqy than anyone I know." He hesitated again. "In Kings Row?" Skeffington was impatient. "Yes. Dr. Tower." Both Madame von Eln and Colonel SkefTlngton started. Dr. Gordon compressed his lips and nodded firmly. "Yes, ma'am. He's a brilliant man—most able. He's a hard student. Far ahead of any of us." Skeffington reached for his hat. "Are there any other details, ma'am, you think of?" • "There is one more thing—and I'd like this to be clearly put in my will. As soon as practicable, I want Parris to go to Vienna for his medical training." pARRIS was dismayed when he heard that he was to go to Aberdeen College. For the first time in his life he was near to being.critical and resentful of his granmolher's arrangements. Purris did not know that he was regarded by the other students as something of a prodigy. They also thought him conceited and standoffish, so he made no friends. Outside of the classrooms, Aberdeen made but little impression on him. His reading with Dr. Tower was a difTerent'matter. He spent three afternoons each week with Dr. Tower. They were hours of ex- .citement and revelation. He never forgot that first afternoon when Cassandra answered his ring at the door. "Down there—the last door." Parris stood looking at her. She was much prettier than he had .remembered her to be. "How have you been, Cassie? I haven't seen you in an awfully long time." "I'm all right." She looked at him steadily, her eyes very large and bright. Parris walked the length of the dim' passage and rapped softly on the door. "Come in, come in." The voice was something of a surprise. It was deep and musical. "How do you do, sir." Doctor Tower nodded. His eyes, exactly like Cassie's, Parris thought, seemed somewhat unseeing. ; "Hereafter, you may come around to the study door. It won't be necesary to come through the house." : Parris felt his face flame. The simple statement seemed to carry not only a rebuke but some sort of obscure threat. i (To Be Continued) They Died With Their Boots On' to Open at Saenger Sunday Onward they charge!

G1LROY, D. D. Editor of Advance Into this lesson on the appointment of the 12 apostles is packed about as much significant fact and truth as could be found anywhere in all the records of mankind since writing began. First of all, we are told that "in these days Jesus went out into the mountain to pray and He continued all night in prayer io God." Wh;<t days were these when Jesus thus felt the need of prayer? They were the days when His earthly mission was developing, when the crowds wovn hurrying to Him because of His healing and His wonderful works, and when intensely earnest souls were turning Him because they perceived in Him a great teacher. They were chard, and other relatives. -O— Friends of Mrs. Herald Porterfield will' be glad to know that she is recuperating rapidly from a tonsillo- tomy in the Newport hospital. -o— Mrs. Fred Ellis of Little Rock is spending the week with her parents, Judge and Mrs. W. K. Lemley. -O— Mrs. Bessie Pope of Clarksville, Texas, is the house guest of Mr. and Mrs. B. L. Rettig. Too Late to Classify FRANKLIN FURNITURE CO. 117 South Elm Street. We are selling out and all furniture must go. Many outstanding buys. Come in today. All sales final. 20-tf days when anyone filled with ideasw, worldly success would have wanted to slay with the crowd exploiting every event and incident of popularity. But Jesus went into the mounlain. lo pray and prayed all nighl! Whal a revelalion we have here of the religion thai Jesus brought lo men! How ullerly Ihe standards of His truth and His kingdom are different from the standards of the world! How completely is the Chrisl- ian idea of success and of triumphant life at variance with the worldly idea of success! And how deeply and strongly does this ercord concerning the Master speak concerning what is necessary for pur lives! If Jesus felt the need of prayer, how much more do we neecrprayer in our lives! And if we could sense the things that Jesus prayed for in His all-nighl meditation and supplication, would we not understand belter than we do the true place and function of prayer? Can we imagine for a moment that Jesus prayed during thai nighl on Ihe mountain for material things or for material blessings? Did prayer for Him mean the earth-bound things which il has meant for so many of us? Or, was nol prayer for Him a great discipline in which He was seeking lo discover Ihe Father's will and to conform Himself completely to it? This surely is the true place and function of prayer—not gelling tilings in Ihe ordinary mislake notion of Christian prayer, but attaining to the supreme Ihing, which is unity of our wills with God. It s in a passage like this, too, lhal we are able to perceive and understand the true humanity of Jesus. The divine revelation thai He gave was in an earthly life, subject to temptation, capable of enduring trial and sorrow, subject also to weakness and needing the disciplines by which alone life can be made strong. The example of the Master ought to stand before us insistently whenever we have any tendency to lapse in our own morale or to take things for granted. Prayer is a great discipline of the soul, leading men lo God and 'Church News FIRST METHODIST CHURCH Second ul Pine Kenneth L. Spore, Pastor Sunday School at 9:45 a.-m.
