"Mr. F, Markham, connected with a large and well-known piano factory, was leading an ungodly and heedless life," says a London periodical. "One day he saw an announcement that Moody and Sankey were to open a mission at St. Pancras that evening. Instantly he resolved to go and hear the singing. He and a companion reached the hall in good time, as they thought, only to find it crowded to the doors. An overflow meeting was announced at a neighbouring church, and thither they went. By and by Mr. Sankey sang 'To the hall of the feast came the sinful and fair.'  As Markham listened, his past life seemed to rise before him ; the tears rushed into his eyes ; his heart seemed broken. Coming out, he asked his companion what he thought of it. 'Oh,'  was the careless reply, 'he is a nice singer.' 'Is that all?'  'It has broken my heart.'
