A man named E. J. Kennedy, years ago, was handed a tract by a man named George Arrow-smith. The tract was entitled "Tonight or Never." Kennedy took it with a laugh, saying, "Oh, well, it will do to light my pipe." Being wakeful that night he rose to get something out of his pockets, came on the tract, and for lack of anything else to do, he read it. The true, tragic story it contained arrested him, and he did not sleep till he had the peace of God in his heart, with the assurance of salvation. The little tract had served a better purpose than lighting Kennedy's pipe; it had lighted his life—for time and eternity.
