that she went to church, not because
her pastor was up to her standard,
or was the best that could bo had,
but because she loved the church,
and long beeu associated with it.
SI10 could be bettor edified else
where, but the preacher was a good
man, and the pastor of the church
of her choice and interest. So she
refused to go olsowhere. The showy

nor the social attractions of more
