An enthusiastic woman interrupted
"Billy" Sunday ib-toa sermon yester
day afternoon and, for fully sixty
seconds, filled the tabernacle with
her Joyoua shouts and commenda
tions of his remarks.
She was a sweet-faced old lady,
dressed in black and with her white
hair parted in the middle and drawn
back smoothly over her head. She
eat in the center of the front row,
right before the evangelist's pulpit.
"Bllly'a" theme was the man with
the withered hand who was healed
by Christ. The aged woman mur
mured "Amen" a number of times.
Her eyes never left his face. Finally
"Amens" were not enough and sud
denly she shouted:
"Olory to God! Hallelujah! O,
r raise His name! Praise His name!"
Her clear voice pentrated through the
tabernacle and necks were craned to see
her. She paused a. moment and "Billy'
atarted on with his sermon, but was 1m-
Ulory to God !
"Gloryl Glory! Glory! Glory! Olory!"
he .cried. . "Oh. Mi's so ood '4e- have
salvation. Glory to God."
'Slater, you'll have to keep still." he
finally said. "If you want to talk I'll;
have to stop till yoa set through."
Bven this did not restrain her.
"Oh. I can't keep still," she cried. "1 11!
try to but the Lord'U hayo to help ...
O glory! Glory! Glory! Glory! Glory!"
Her voice rose higher and higher..
"Billy" seemed to give It up. He smiled.
The audience tittered.
. "Never mind." he said. "If the slater
wants to get excited, let her go. And.

you would feel more glory and shdut
more glory you'd do more for Christ."
People around her calmed the good
woman finally and "Billy" proceeded.'

Dennison told the Standard Oil mag

direct mediation with the officers of the
