Tho awakening came quickly. Banafer's

but Instead of hitting tho trail, grabbed
a lnmp and hit the evangelist.
Banafer fell In a heap, but rose quickly

out Ills Bible and began to pray and sing
alternately. "Nothing doin' on the re

thoro was a chorus of "let us sleep."
Even tho police agreed with this senti
