So 1 got my ticket all right. Now the gates open, and the
rush and noisi— it was all so new to me then. I got in at last and
took my seat, and I sat thinking and wondering how I would pay
good Brother Clark his two dollars when he came on Saturday.
" Lord, help me," I said, " and open the way for me."
Then Satan said to me, " If you had not bought that package
of tracts you wouldn't have had to borrow that two dollars."
A day or two before, I had bought at the Bible House, a pack¬
age of holiness tracts — they cost thirty cents. I knew my money
was short, but holiness was so sweet to me that I wanted every¬
body to get it, and these tracts set the truth forth in such a clear,
reasonable light I thought I might do a little work for the Lord in
giving them to persons, so that was why I got them. The Devil
don't like holiness anyhow, and I was ignorant of his devices, and
was among strangers. He tried his best to pick a quarrel with
me. After a little while I got my pack and took out the tracts
and began to read, and in spite of all, I felt happy, and felt I had
done right in getting them. The train went on. In a little while
some one began to sing. I was asked to join in the song, and a
real pleasant going to camp meeting we had. After the singing
was over, Mr. Faulkner came back to the seat where I was sitting
and said: "What are you reading, Auntie?" I handed him the
package of tracts.
" Ah, do you know anything about holiness?" he said.
My heart caught fire in a moment, and I began to tell what
great things the Lord had done for me, and after listening a while,
he said, " I want to give our pastor, Brother Wells, some of these
tracts," and I think he said his daughter and some other ladies
were interested in the subject.
" All right, sir," I said, " I am very glad to have you take as
many as you like." When he got through he returned what were
" They are very good, and you must pray that God will bless
Then he handed me a two dollar bill. " I don't sell them, sir,"
He smiled and replied, "But don't you buy them?"
" Yes, but I didn't pay that for them, sir."
"No matter," he said, " I guess you can use it, can't you?"
"O, yes, sir, thank you, praise the Lord." Then he went away.
