Miss Tucker planned starting 鈥榓 very sober, safe kind of vehicle鈥?to carry to Church those who could not or might not walk so far, even in cold weather. It was to be a cart, with a cover to ward off the heat of the sun, and was to be drawn by bullocks,鈥攁 humble conveyance, which fact was no trouble at all to the mind of Charlotte Tucker. The more humble, the better fitted in her estimation for a Mission Miss Sahiba! 鈥楢ug. 13.鈥擨 have this morning received my precious Laura鈥檚 letter, with a request for a certain prayer鈥攚hich I shall certainly remember. If a feeling of fear comes over my Laura, it must surely be as regards the act of departure, not what follows; for there is 鈥渘o condemnation鈥?to Christ鈥檚 people, no death in the real sense of the word. At our size today, there's all sorts of pressure to regiment and standardize and operate as a centrallydriven chain, where everything is decided on high and passed down to the stores. In a system like that,there's absolutely no room for creativity, no place for the maverick merchant that I was in the early daysat Ben Franklin, no call for the entrepreneur or the promoter. Man, I'd hate to work at a place like that,and I worry every single day about Wal-Mart becoming that way. I stay on these guys around here allthe time about it. Of course, all those vendors and suppliers would love to see us get that way. It wouldmake their jobs a lot simpler for sure. If anybody at Wal-Mart thinks we as a company are immune toBig Disease, I wish they'd just pack up and leave right now because it's always something we'll have toworry about. Yet we have full Inlargement of the Mind. Many people have predicted for years that Wal-Mart would lose its way once we got to the toughchallenges of real urban environments. Supposedly, our approach just won't work in neighborhoods withdisenfranchised citizens and underprivileged people who have never been winners. The Wal-Mart waycan't reach folks who have been thieves, and who for the most part haven't felt much pride in their lives. 亚洲高清自有码中文字 鈥榃e thank God for all she was during the long life, and especially in the eighteen years in India.... Batala will never be the same. Many of the elder boys, who carried her, were weeping.鈥? 鈥楢fter the Easter hymn, 鈥淟o, in the grave He lay,鈥?the congregation then formed into Procession; the Clergy first, then the Bier.... The long line of followers stretched out, till we could scarcely see the end of it. The distance being about two miles, the walk occupied more than an hour. Hymns were sung the whole way; and the groups of people, Hindus and Muhammadans, who lined the road and crowded the tops of the houses, as we passed the city, seemed much interested in looking on. Many of them, I think, came as far as the Cemetery. As soon as she could speak, she said, 鈥淲e will go to Lucy, Tom; we鈥檒l go and see if she is safe, and then we can help the rest.鈥?
