The'fences and gates were in 'good repair; the barn no more than three times, as i big,, as the , house—and both were painted. The Reverend Arthur Prewett, bom and raised in Itaasachtuetta, had been in this neighborhood long, enough to respect farm dogm and know about gates, ' Leaving his car in the road, he carefully made hia way up the l*4e to the house yard, wen't through the gate, careful to'latch It behind him, and-hoped that the big dog's baric was worse than its bite. , "You, c/w»tsy/" cried a woman from the doorway, "Shet up, can't you?" The dog subsided to •faint whoots and growls, and lay down on the porcb,. The Reverend jprewett removed his hat, wiped his shoes as free as possible ot snow and muck, and extended his hand to the woman. "Axe you Mrs. ArmesT" "I'm Mrs. James Armea," she conceded. "My name la Prewett. I'm rector ot the Episcopal church uv Norfolk," rWe're Saptists," said, the thin woman, defensively, "Yes, i Know.
