IRIETES WHO HIDE THEIR LOOT.
Recovered Later, and the Ex-Criminal
Lives in Wealth .
It is well known to the police that
there are a number of ex-convicts
who are literally rolling in riches
and driving about London and the
provinces today in their own motor
cars and carriages, said a detective to
the writer the other day. The major
ity of these men are old embezzlers
and there seems to be little doubt
that they are able to live well and
keep going lavishly furnished resi
dences because the money they stole
was hidden by them before being ar
rested and sent to prison.
It may surprise you to know that
thousands of pounds worth of valua
ble property looted by thieves from
various sources lies buried in odd cor
ners of Britain and will probably only
be recovered by the men themselves
on their release. Cases are constant
ly occurring where an embezzler after
unning off with a large sum in gold
efuses to divulge the hiding place of
is ill gotten gains. He is sent to
prison and the loot remains unrecov
red. In nine cases out of ten the em
bezzler finding arrest imminent buries
his stolen property and digs it up
again when he comes out of prison.
A man who was for many years an
inmate of one of our prisons is now
living in affluence in a town up north.
He was imprisoned for embezzling
70,000 pounds from his employer and
he declared at the trial that he had
spent every penny of it. For some
time after his release from jail he
lived in a, cheap lodging house at
Hoxton and then one day he declared
that he had come into a fortune, a
brother in Australia having died and
left him some thousands. As a matter
of fact, although the police had no
proof, he had recovered the money
which he had embezzled years before.
A man of considerable means now
living in the States served a term of
imprisonment for forgery, having ob
tained 15,000 pound by means of false
checks. Not a penny of the money
was recovered by the police. During
the forced confinement of the thief
his wife, in pursuance of a prexiously
agreed plan, went out to service in a
gentleman's family. As soon as the
usband 'was liberated, however, his
e resigned her position and the
ir sailed immediately for the col
. It ultimately came to light
the money which had been stolen
eans of the forged checks had
buried under the flooring in a
me fifteen years ago a Hindu
hnt who had come sto London
make purchases of gems was rob
ed of many thousands of pounds.
e thieves carried their ill gotten
ealth to a cheap tenement in White
apel, but imlding the police hot on
ir track they carried the loot one
; night to a remote spot on the
ex marches and secretly buried it.
ey' then disappeared and hay not
en seen since, It' is believ C.hat
te money remains to this day .iere
it gras buried.
'ot so .very long ago a burr -
as committed by- a couple of '
known thieves who got away witt7
about 500 pounds in coin and bank
notes. They were arrested, but refus
ed to state what they had done with
the money, although one darkly hint
ed that it had been buried in a garden
in a suburb of London.-Tit-Bits
THE SCREECH OWL.
He Is An Interesting Bird and Ren.
ders Valuable Service.
Order, Raptores; Genus, Magas

Whether listening to what Frank
M. Chapman has called "the storm
beaten wail of the screech owl," or
considering the fearsome interest he
has for the negro, on account of his
association with "hants," or taking
the .view-point of science, the screech
owl may claim to hold his own in in
terest with any bird that flies.
In the colonial days Indians mim
icked the cry of this owl when steal
ing on the settlements, but the set
tlers learned to tell the difference
between the cry of a screech owl and
the call of an Indian by the simple
fact that the owl's cry had no echo.
The Indian could not avoid the echo
try as he would.
In length -screech owls vary from
.7.5~0 to 10 inches,- the female being
slightly larger. In color they are
bichromatic, that is, have two dis
tinct color markings, red and gray.
Birds of the same brood have been
known to exhibit both colors, the one
grey, the other red. For a long time
they were regarded as two different
birds, even so acute and distinguish
ed an observer as John James Audu
bon,being deceived by them.
The name of the genius, Magas
cops (great-looking) most admirably
describes their appearance. They lay
their four or five eggs in an old hol
low or deserted woodpecker's nest,

GOOD SEED FOR Gb0D GROUND.
Matthew 13:1-9; 18-23.-June 19.
"Wherefore, putin r oil flittines and overflocing of icickedncss receive Ivith
miecknx.s the cji!iafPd irord. which is able to veave your souls."-James
SING a boat as a pulpit, our Lord taught a great lesson respecting the
method used by the Almighty in the selection of the "little flock"
whom he invites to be members with Christ Jesus in the administra
tion of his Millennial Kingdom. The Kingdom message or invitation
Is the "seed" which is under consideration in the above parable, which, under
favorable conditions, germinates and brings forth the required fruitage of
character-development. Our Lord was the great Sower of this good seed of
the Kingdom, and after him came the Apostles. Since then he has used all of
his faithful people more or less in this seed sowing.
The fact that most of the "seed" of the Divine message seems wasted is
no proof that the message is not good and desirable. This parable shows that
the real fault lies in the soil-in the heart. If all hearts were right the mes
sage or seed would bring forth much fruit everywhere.
The parable states that not all of the soil is good or suitable: nevertheless,
the intimation is that it is within thetpower of many to correct and offset the
unfavorable conditions in themselves. We. are not left to coujecture, for this
is one of the few parables which our Lord himself interpreted-a fact which
many seem not to have noticed.
The "seed" is the message of the Kingdom. Many do not understand it.
On such ears the message is lost, for the Adversary is on the alert to take it
away, as symbolized by the birds.devouring the exposed "seed by the way
side." Such "wayside" hearers constitute the most numerous class in every
congregation of the nominal churl ,. They are merely formalists.
"Stony" ground represents aL.-her class of hearers of the Kingdom mes
sage. To them it sounds good: they are interested, but they lack depth of
character. They make professions and for a time flourish extraordinarily, but
they lack the depth necessary to a character development suitable for the
Lord's use in the work of the Kingdom, and when the trials and testings
come they stumble. They thought they might be carried to the Kingdom on
"flowery beds of ease, while others fight to win the prize and sail through
bloody seas." There is no easy road to the Kingdom. The Master declares
to all who would be of the elect "Bride," "Through much tribulation shall ye
enter the Kingdom."
The ground which will produce thorns is rich, and very suitable for the
production of proper Christian charneter. but it is infested with thorn seed,
and the soil cannot successfully produce both wheat and thorns: hence, as the
parable shows, the thorns choke out the wheat, so that a sufficient crop is not
produced. These thorns are not. as some have suggested, sensual vices and
criminal appetites. Hearts in which sensuality dominates have no ear what
ever for the Kingdom message, and are not mentioned in the parable, which I
refers only to those who are no longer willing sinners, but who are walking
outwardly in the way of righteousness. The Masler's ,word is. "He that re
ceiveth the seed atnong -thorns is he that heareth the word, and the cares of
this world and the deceitful.ness of riches choke the word and he becometh un
fruitful." There are many noble people representcd also by this portion of
the parable. There are many who, if freed from the spirit of the world, from 1
its ambitions and wealth and%influence, its love of the .ood things of this life,
would be very fruitful in righteousness. When we look about us and see the
thrift and energy of many people of civilized lands. we say to ourselves, prop
erly, if these lives were really turned into the w:y of the Lord and were rid
of these earthly encumbrances, what grand. nob!e eharacters t1ey would make.
However. their strength, their energy. is absorbed by worldly affairs and
cares, and they do not bring forth the fruitage demanded as the necessary
qualification for the higher honors of a place with Christ in his Kingdom.
The Master's message to such is, You cannot give your time and strength and
influence to worldly matters and at the same time make your "calling and
election sure" to a place with me in my Kingdom. Whoever would be my dis
ciple, let him take up his cross and follow me. Where I am there shall my
"Herein is my Father glorified that ye bear much fruit." said our Master.
In this parable the good ground varies in its productiveness-thirty, sixty and
an hundred fold. The larger the returns, the greater will be the Father's pleas
ure and the Savior's glory. Nor is the statement an extreme one, as some
might supp'ose. The new "miracle wheat" some times produces more than
two bundred grains from one. This parable seems to imply that the respon
sibility for the fruitfulness of the heart and life and character depends very
greatly upon the individual and how he receives the message of the Kingdom.
Those In w bom the fruits will be the most abundant will be such as grasp
the invitation most intelligently and earnestly. "He that heareth the word and
uderstandeth it" and whose heart is in a condition of loyalty to God and who
frees himself from hindrances and worldly ambitions and aspirations and,
like the A postle Paul, c-an say. "This one thing I do," will surely gain the
.lt is not sufficient that we hear- the message .of the Kingdom; it is not suffi
cient that we have g'ood hearts or good intentions in respect to it: it is addi
tionally necessary, as the Master says, that we should understand the Kingdom
message: hence the need~ of Bible study. Intelligent people consider it very
wise and proper that several years of study be devoted to preparation for the
few 'years of e'arthly life. How much study, then. should be considere'd proper
for our preparation for the eternal life and Kingdom blessings? The time and
effort thus consumed in character development for the Kingdom are wisely
spent.'and. the harvest of thirty, sixty or a hundred fold illustrates the degree
and intensity of our earnestness. The rewards in the Kingdom will also be
proportionate. "As star differeth from star in glory, so shall it be in the resur
rection of the dead." Varying degrees of glory in the Kingdom will be mani
fested, yet none will be acceptable to the Father who shall not have brought
forth fruitage in good measure.
