heathen mob which considered him a
“foreign devil." and set shoot to kUl

“When Dr. S. T. Bryns first went
to China aa a Baptist missionary he
arse sent up into the Interior at a
place called Chingkiang to further the
good work. Dr. Bryan and hi* fam- ■
fly arrived at tha gates of the city
and started tu go in, bat were stopped
by the man who 'kept the gate. The
gatekeeper asked what the foreign
devil’ was going to do in thoir felr
city. The answer was that he had
come to pesaefc the gospel. The gate
keeper went in search ef the mayor
of ike city, who, altar some negoti
ating, allowed the missionary and his
family to enter.
"The little oompeny enured the city
and proceeded to a hone* that had
been ranted for them by soma faith

are a very curies* raea sad in this
instance they were not loth to Uva aa

exceed the little house, peeping
rkmagk the cracks in tha srall and
through the tiny. Mhidlses windows.
It wet several days before tha crowd
ceased to try to get a glimpse of the
hated loreign devil sad his family.
