Sunday night as some people were walking along the road they discovered an auto standing on one side of the road, all dark and seemed by its its lonesome. When their visit was over they returned home, and when they came along, this same auto was there yet "already." They commenced to wonder why, when and what it was doing there. One said, "Let's light a match and see." Quickly the auto came alive. If a match woke it up, what would a flashlight do?
