I've had a hard pull against a lot of Just overhaul me the Book, and let us have that Scripter about casting all our care." The minister took the Bible which Tom pu'led out of his loeker, and, marking the passage, went away After that hour Tom, with Bess and Rolf, was most frequently with the minister; many hours they passed together on the shingle, and the simple-minded Tom Epp seemed nf> much a young pupil to the parson as the other two. To Tom the truths of the Scripture came with a singular frcihncsi and beauty. To hear was to obey, though the new law was frequently met with a burst of waiting over the long years wasted in ita rtcglect. To this minister, who had a devotion to his Mnster'ff work like that of Bruin- ard and Pay son, no hours were better or more happily spent than those when he was leading those voung disciples on the upward way.
