Nazarene [June lQ; 1909
The Thing that Tickled Him So.
:H. E. Fitch.
T.he devil climbed up in a Sycamore tree,
And he laughed and laughed in upt,oarous glee.
He la ughed out so loud and kept at it so iong
He attiacted an imp who was passing along.
But one thing is .laoking, I very well know;
And that's why I'm laughing, it tickles me so.
Said the imp . "What's the news? Has some suint gone astray
That has caJ,Ised you to laugh in. this boist:erous way?"
Then.he laughed all the louder and answered, "Oh no;
"He shows them they're sinnt>rs and doomed to despair ;
They see they need mercy, their hands raise for prayer,
The n kneel at the altar, a few Christians pray,
They rfse to their feet and then go tlfeit own way.-.
It's the !lleetings up yonder that tic.kle me so.
"No heart-cty fot pardon-no penitent's plea-
None ea r nestly pleading, 'Have mercy on me.!'
''They wished a r evival up there on the hill
No clear testimony- no 'witness' . from heaven-
And sent for a preacher the pulpit to fill.
No persottal knowledge that sins are forgiven.
I knew that this preacher was true to his .God;
If sin need exposing, he!d spare riot. the rod.
"Just a Bible verse quoted-why, I could do that,
' With a face as a ngelic as e'er you looked at.
" I heard he was coming. 0 how I was scared!
My bravest of Legions I brought, well prepared
They think they' re converted, that's just what they do.
They're only 'convicted,' and never 'pray through. '
To fight 'gainstthese meetings their good to o' erthrow;
. But now I am. laughing, it tickle!! me so.
"They think they are saved, and most folks think the same,
Pat them all on the back- they are Chl'istians in name .
"His heart is aglow with a love for lost men;
To bring them to Christ he will d6 all he can.
But the fact of it is-and that's what tickles me-
They are blind to the truth, just as blind as can be.
He is fervent in prayer and is full of God's love.
He tells men of hell and of heaven above.
"I saw how 'twas going, and, hless me, I know
I have most die.d a-laughing, it tickles me so.
"His is weighty and powerful enough;
'I;o damage my kingdom ' tis just the right stuff.
The preacher may preach and pray on all he please,
For we've plenty of room for such converts a" these. "

'i'he Second Annual District Assem-

costal Church of the Nazarene, was held
in East Palestine, Ohio, May 19-23. It
was a great Assembly and did 'much,
we believe, to further interests of
organized holiness in this great district.
Many of the pastors and delegates
artived Wednesday afternoon, and Sis-
tf,}r Curry, pastor at East Palestine,
had planned . a meeting which
proved to be a. t:eal good ''starter'' for

After an address of welcome by Sis-

nll feel that we were indeed welcome,
Bto. J . H. Norris, District Superintend-
ent for the past two years, was intro-
lluccd and very fittingly responded to
the add-ress of welcome. Our beloved
General Superintendent H. F . Reynolds
was then introduced to the Assembly,

The afternoon session was taken up
with reports from our evangelists and
committees, all of which were interest-
ing and inspiring. Our three evangel-
ists, Bros. Imhoff, McGarvey al)d Ham-

. ties fought and victories won for God

Friday evening was given over to the.
missionary interests, and was one of
the best we ever
attended. We were fortunate to have
with us our dear Brother S. M. Stafford,
Superintendent of our Missions in Mex-
ico, who was the principal .speaker of
the evening. Also our pastor and wife.
from Lincoln Place, Pa., who are re-
turned missionaries from India. Bro.
Reynolds, General Superinten.dent, pre-
sided and made some preliminary re-
marks, and then introduced Bro. and
Sister Davidson, who each spoke of
their work in India in an interesting
way, and we were all sorry that they
did not have more time, and would
recommend these dear people to pastors
for missionary meetings. Bro. Stafford
then gave us one of his spiritual, earn-
est appeals for the work in Mexico.
The Lord continue to ,owsk Bro. Staf-
ford and his work. We were especially
glad to hear him tell of the recent re-
vival in Mexico in our work there. .An.
offering was taken amounting to about
$68 for his work, t.o be used to help
buy type and paper for his new pre8s.
Bro. Stafford showed a box of jewelry
which had come off "our folks," and
quite a bit of cast-off jewelry was given
him before leaving. Let us jl,lSt say, it
is Bro. Stafford's plan to gather enough

Again, they are charged with being
''obstinate under tke garb of spiritual-
. ity. " This charge is true concerning
those who persistently ignore _teach-:
ers, especially if they do not profess
holiness, or are given to harsh critic-
ism of pulpit ministry on the ground
of ability to determine what should be.
Undue narrowness is often taken for
loyalty to truth, . and many reject
reproof and counsel from those who
are in every way able to give it simply
because they claim to be more .. spir1t-

There was a jubilant spirit as the con-
.gregation assembled . at the morning
worship, this being . children's day at
First Church. The . large auditorium
was tastily decorated with flowers, with
an appropriate motto, and the happy
faces of children made a beautiful sight
as they filled the large choir loft. The
singing and. recitations were all . very
appropriate and well rendered. As the
Superintendent, Bro. Shaw, questioned
and. cross-questioned the classes, it be-
came very evident that the children
knew much about the Bible, and the in-
fluence of the school was telling upon
the lives of all.
It would be quite impossible to give
much of an account of the very inter-
esting program, but all seemed well
satisfied and pleased with the morning
service, r ejoicing that God had given
us so many young lives to influence in
the way of full salvation.
The afternoon holiness meeting was
given largely to t estimony, and many
were .blessed iri giving their experience.
The service closed with the altar call,
which was a very impressive service.
The evening service was in charge of
Bro. Goodwin, who ga ve the message
from Rev. 22 :20. It was a sermon on
the .r eturn of our Lord, and was much
enjoyed by all. The young men sang
with much blessing before and after
the sermon. Thank God for such con-
secr at ed yoling our work.
There W.f.r-e three seekers at the altar
and a spirit of vi ct9ry among the peo-
ple. These arej good days for First
Church, and there has been a strong
tide of spiritual life manifested in the
social services of late, and the people
are praying much for the Assembly.
The early mor niilg prayer meeting
was. a time of refreshing from the pres-
ence of the-Lord. When the saints began
to sing and praise in the beauty of holi-
n ess, and to pull fire out of the skies,
the blessing' of God fell on our souls,
and another great day in .Zion was be-
. The 6 o'clock street :meeting. was one
of great inter est. As . the saints began
to sing and to praise God, the crowds,
gathered on the sidewalk, and as we
looked into their faces and saw the
awful r avages of sin, and then to see
the shine on the saints, we thought,
''and such wer e some of you, but ye
are .. washed, but ye ar e sanctified, but
ye are justified in the name of the Lord
J esus and by the Spirit of the living
God. ' ' One p oor drunk began to ridi-
cule the speakers, but prayer was made
for him and h e came out and begged
the saints to save hi m from drink ; but
as. he knelt by' the. we pointed
him to t he Lamb of God that taketh
away the sin of the world, and he and
Nazarene Messenger
others came to the . church, . and two of
th.em were at. the altar, and . one was
.saved and the other gloriously sancti-
fied. And so, as God says, ' .' Of some
have compassion, making a difference,
and others save with fear pulling them
out of the fire, hating even the gar-
ment spotted by the :flesh." Jude 22, 23.
Pray mightily for these street
ings. : W. W. F.
On Thursday night at prayer service
seven definite answers to prayer since
the previous meeting of a week ago
were recorded. After a wonderful
time of. . prayer . and bless- .
ing from on high, one soul . came and
was truly converted, making eight defi-
nite answers in one week.. Surely God
answers prayer.
The Sabbat}:J. day was one of won-
drous power. A large Sabbath school
present, eight new scholars in at-
t endance. Sister. Knott preached morn-
ing and evening to large congregations.
The. power of the Lord was manifest
in deep conviction. upon. the unsaved.
God's people truly rejoiced, for after
the day's labor seven souls had found
pardon and purity.
A touching scene was witnessed at
the night service, when six taken
into church f ellowship. l'here were
five lambs of the fold, which J esus said
''to f eed,'' standing with an older
brother, two of the lambs being his own

into 1 our circle. She began sho11t
t hat we were all liars and robber s, etc.;
but we made no sign. We began to
sing the gospel. Oh, . how theY, .sang
the precious words of salvation. It
seemed as if each of us w:as multiplied
by five. The multitude stood still. The
woman continued to scream and rail at
us until the police came took her
away. Otir fol)rs stood the lest and
proved the grac,_ .. I believe they would
gladly go to death for Jesus' sake.
The night service was the crowning
glory, a Pentecost . flo?d tide, a "this
is that'' kind of a time, never before
see:tl in our mission. We don't know
how it came, only we felt God the Son
in oUJ.'I nridst, a inelting time in song
service, a waving of handkerchiefs (not
all whit e) and palms; then . an altar
call, and sixteen seekers came to seek .
pardon and holiness. The Spirit of
Pentecost came upon the children. A
great volume of prayer, with upturned
faces to God. A young man came in,
a member of another mission, and said
the Spirit of God led him; he did not
kneel, but' he did not believe in
kneeling to pray. God fixed -his gaze
on the scene before him, and laid hold
on his heart. ' In. the testimonies that
followed the altar service, he arose and
gave a most marvelous confession of
how God wrought on his soul as he sat
in his seat, calling upon us to weep
with him. Men and .women were weep-
ing for joy that the Holy Ghost had
come to his heart. As he continued

I arrived here (Lancaster) t en days
ago, primarily, I suppose, for the bene-
fit to my health that this climate is
supposed to bring. It is a little town
near the center of Antelope valley, 2350
feet elevation, 80 miles from Los An-
geles, and about 25 miles below Mojave.
It has two saloons and two hotels with
bars attached, and-I am told the liquor
people con:trol the town. It seems to
have a good school, two churches, one
Catholic _and one belonging to the
Methodists, but made up of various
faiths. They have a fair sized congre-
gation, with a very bright and prom-
ising class of young people in church
and Sunday school, as - yet, I believe,
generally unsave-d. Some very earnest
people among the membership, but in
great need of "the .fulness of the bless-
ing." There seems to be great need
of salvation everywhere, but certainly
the devil is very "strongly entrenched.
The present pastor of the church is a
U. B., I am told, and much aliye.
