Title The Compassionate Witch
Description "Hello, oh, yes-(it's Luella). The pains, are they regular and close? Yes, I'll come right away. "Lois, just leave these things where they are. Run and see if your dad is home. I should get there right fast. Luella's baby seems to be coming and she shouldn't deliver for another month. I've been worrying about her." "Grandma, Daddy's not home. He's probably gone to pick up mother at Gloom Busters." "I must go right now. I'll just walk. Tell your folks where I am." But the sun went down in a blaze of color and Mercie -didn't return. Darkness drew close, and night settled in. A call to the Larson's only enforced the news that Mercie would not be back this night. However, it was not unusual for nights and days to pass while Mercie served the expectant mothers of the community. Morning dawned, but the nurse remained at the Larson's residence. Telephone reports confirmed that things were Nephi. However, Dr. Allred was involved in another case and would come as soon as he was able. In the meantime, Mercie tended the mother. Her cushioned fingers and soft palms soothed the perspiring were applied alternately. Mercie worked constantly, being needed every minute. It's opening night. The music has started, the children are scurrying to their places. The big curtain with the words The Wool City begins to roll. But the stage is empty-where is the witch? The music stops. The music begins again-and again stops. Here comes the Bishop. What has happened? 75
