came to ber. ,She had longed to
get awav from Hale, ����� as lo better
kerself. Now she longed to get
back to Hale, to better Uie village,
and help the people. So she went
back to where she kad been a slave,
and toek the gospel with her.
She   worked   harder than   ev>��ri
ito earn money���not lor herself this
time, but to build  a  little  church.
By 1903 sbe had net only built  the!
���church, but" kad put it at  the  dis-1
posal   of   the   nearest   missionary I
workee, and had brought five of the |
young   men  of the  village   in  as
biptised   members.    All alone,   in ���
that   dark   cornel   ot  heathenism,
this untiring  worker  has  brought
the yospel to her   village.    In   ker
otvn baptism  she had  recired  the
name of Dorcas.    It  seems  appropriate to  her  nature and  helpfulness.
Are missions worth while?    Cec-1
tainly the missionaries wh��  taught^
Sabbath Itlie E0SPel to Ogu nro did a thing;
that was worth while for her and |
for the village of Hale One story j

On the adoption of the word "jolly"
luto tho Kngllsh it hud the meaning of

today. The Duglish dramatist Beaumont of the sixteenth century speak,

known that wlmt we now observe a*
Christmas day was a heathou. ho'iiiu?

Yule Indeed means noise i_r outcry,
