lady in legal via Caroline H. Woods

I used to be interpreting a night paper. i peeked over the ads. One attracted my consciousness, and held it so strongly that I learn it again and again, many times. there has been not anything strange in it to dull statement. It learn, "Wanted.—At the detention center, a Matron. Inquire on the Institution."

I laid the paper down, with no analyzing it, simply because i may see not anything in it other than that advertisement.

The subsequent day I went on the town, sat down within the place of work of a pal, and took up a morning paper. No had I opened it than that commercial unfold itself out ahead of me. It replaced the shape of its charm; omitted what my selfishness may achieve, to enlist my compassion and reduction, solely, in what i would accomplish for others.

I can't! i've got different activities, and they're as a lot for the advantage of humanity as whatever i could be capable to accomplish for you. My spirit darkened as I made the reply; a cloud of guilt settled down upon it. I threw down the paper as a way to expend it, and to prevent the plea.

I grew to become and talked with my pal; yet my techniques weren't in what we have been announcing. That commercial them, and crammed them to the exclusion of each different subject.

In the abstraction which it prompted the hour within which i used to be to go away the town handed, and that i neglected my teach. i need to stay and avail myself of another.

While i used to be ready, that commercial back to my reflections, and prompt its reason imperatively as a command. It was once a choice, to me, resistless because the voice that aroused from sleep the younger Israelitish Prophet from his slumbers. In one other second the fight with my delight was once over, and my spirit answered,—I will pass, even to lust-besotted Sodom if thou leadest, mild of my path!

I seated myself in a road automobile, went to the criminal, utilized for where, and acquired it.

Day by way of day I wrote down what I observed and heard, what I stated and did. Why? In obedience to an identical Voice that known as me to the work.

The story is earlier than you.

May it contact the guts of each one that reads the tale, and soften it right into a compassion so one can hard work for the redemption of the prisoner; right into a pity as a way to echo round the cry—Open the legal doorways, to not allow the prisoner cross loose, yet to enable in, to him, the sunshine of ethical wisdom, and the self-discipline of Christian charity.
