As they stumbled torward througa
lae thick obscurity he continued bin
personal revelations, the present en
terprise having roused whatever there
'Was of sentiment slumbering lu his
, oul. At last they came out on a
wide bayou; a white mist hung above
ft, and on the low shore leaf and
fcr&ncn were dripping with the night
dews. Keeping close to the water's
dge Slosson led the way to a point
where a skill was drawn up on the

Jiad launched It
"I will go no farther!" said Betty
in desperation. She felt an over
mastering fear, the full horror of the
unknown lay hold of her, and she gave
piercing cry for help. Slosson swung
about on his heel and seized her. For
moment she struggled to escape,
Jut the raan'B big hand pinioned her.
"No more of that!" he warned, then
too recovered himself and laughed.
"You could yell till you was black In
tAe face, ma'am, and there'd be no
one to hear you."
"Where are you taking me?" and
Betty voice faltered between the
udden Eobs that choked her.
"Just across to George Hicks g."
"For what purpose?"
"You'll know In plenty of time."
.And Slosson leered at her through the
"Hannibal lg to go with meT" asked
Sure! agreed Slosson affably.
Your cigser, too quite a party.'
Hetty stepped Into the skiff. She

loolilng across this Betty saw where
cabin window framed a single
quare of light. They advanced to
ward this and presently the dark out
line of the cabinet Itself became dis
tinguishable. A moment later Hlos
on paused, a door yielded to his
band, and Hetty and the boy were
thrust Into the room where Murreil
fcad heid his conference with Fentress

was pierced by a low door. Mrs.
Hicks, who had followed close at
their heels, handed the candle to Bet
ty. "In yonder!" she said briefly, nod
ding toward the door.
"Wait!" cried Betty In a whisper.
"No," said the woman with an al
most masculine surliness of tone. "1
got nothing to Day." She pushed them
Into the attic, and, closing the door,
fastened it with a stout wooden bar.
Beyond that door, which seemed to
have closed on every hope, Betty held
the tallow dip aloft, and by Its uncer
tain and flickering light surveyed her
prison. The briefest glance sufficed.
The room contained two shake-down
beds and a stool; there was a window
In the gable, but a piece of heavy
plank was spiked before It.
"MIbs Betty, don't you be scared,"
whispered Hannibal. "When the judge
hears we're, gone, him and Mr. Ma
haffy win try to find us. They'll go
right off to Belle Plain the Judge Is
always wanting to do that, only Mr.
Mahaffy never lets mm but now he
won't be able to stop him."
"Oh, Hannibal, Hannibal, what can
he do there what can any one do
there?" And a dead pallor over
spread tho girl's face. To speak of
the blind groping of her friends but
served to tlx the horror of their situ
ation In her mind.
"I don't know, Miss Betty, but the
Judge Is always thinking of things to
do; seems like they was mostly things
no one else would ever think of."
Betty had placed the candle on the
stool and seated herself on one of the
beds. There was the murmur of
voices In the room below; she wor
dered if her fate was under considera
tion and what that fato was to be.
Hannibal, who had been examining
the window, returned to her side.
"Miss Betty, If we could Just get
out of this loft we could steal their
eklll and row down to the river; 1
reckon tbey got Just ,the one boat;
the only way they could get to us
would be to swim out, and if they
done that we could pound 'em over
the head with the oars the least lit
tle thing sinks you when you're In
the water." But this murderoua fancy
of his failed to Interest Betty.
Presently they heard Sherrod an
Bunker come up from the shore with
George. Slosson Joined them and
there was a brief discussion, then an
interval of silence, and tho sound of
voices again as the three white men
moved back across the field in the
direction of the bayou. There suc
ceeded a period of utter stillness,
both in the cabin and In the clear
ing, a somber hush that plunged Bet
ty yet deeper lu despair. Wild
thoughts ftesalled her, thoughts against
which she struggled with alt the
strength of her will.
In that hour of stress Hannibal was
sustained by bis faith In the Judge.
He saw his patron's powerful and
picturesque Intelligence applied to
solving the mystery of their dlsap
MUt.ranca from &il Vlaia: It was ln-
cuuceivaDie mat tnis could prove
otherwise than disastrous to Mr. Slos
son, and he endeavored to share the
confidence he was feeling with Betty,
but there was something so forced
and unnatural in the girl's voice and
manner when she discussed his con
jectures that he quickly fell Into an
awed silence. At last, and It must
have been some time after midnight,
troubled slumbers claimed him. No
moment of forgetfulness came to Bet
ty. She was waiting for what she
did not know! The candle burnt low
er and lower and Cually went out and
she was left In darkness, but again
she was conscious of sounCs rrom the
room below. At first It wag only a
word or a sentence, then the guarded
speech became a steady monotone
that ran deep Into the night. Even
tually this ceased and Betty fancied
she beard sobs.
Murreil Shows His Hand.
At length points of light began to
show through chinks In the logs. Han
nibal roused and eat up, rubbing his
eyes with the backs of his hands.
"Wasn't you able ito sleep none?" he
inquired. Betty shook her head. He
looked at her with an expression of
troubled concern. "How soon do you
reckon the Judge will know?" he
"Very soon now, dear." Hannibal
was greatly consoled by this opinion.
"Miss Betty, he, will love to Bud
Hark! What was that?" for Betty
had caught the distant splash of oars.
Hannibal found a chink In the logs
through which by dint of much squint
ing he secured a partial view of the
"They're fetching up a keel boat to
the bhore. Miss Betty it's a whoop
er!" he announced. Betty's heart
sank; she never doubted the purpose
for which that boat was brought into
the bayou, or that it nearly concerned
Half an hour later Mrs. Hicks ap
peared with their breakfast. It was
in vain that Botty attempted to en
gage her in conversation. Either she
cherished some personal feeling of
dislike for her prisoner, or else the
situation in which she herself was
placed had little to recommend it,
even to ber dull mind, and her dls

Finally all her hope centered on Judge
Price. He would expect Hannibal dur

boy did not arrive ha would ba tempt
ed to go out to Bella Plain to dis
cover the reason of his noo U)ar

would offer themselves to his In

thing of that indomitable energy

laughter carried hlin Into the thick ot
At noon Mrs. Hicks, as sullen as in
tho morning, brought them their dln
nor. She had scarcely quitted the loft
when a shrill whistle pierced tha bW
lence that hung above the clearing.
It was twice repeated, snd the two
women were heard to go from the
cabin. Perhaps half an hour elapsed,
then a step became audible on the
packed earth of tha dooryard. Some
one entered the room below and be
gan to ascend the narrow stairs, and
Betty's fingers closed convulsively
about Hannibal's. This was neither
Mrs. Hicks nor her daughter, nor
Slosson with bis clumsy shuffle. There
was a brief pause when the landing
was reached, but It was only momen
tary; a hand lifted the bar, the door
was thrown open, and Its space
framed the figure of a man. It was
Standing there he regarded Betty in
silence, but a deep-seated fire glowed
In his sunken eyes. The sonse of pos
session was rcglng through him, his
temples throbbed, a fever stirred his
blood. Love, such as it was, he un
doubtedly felt for her, and even his
giant project, with all Its monstrous
ramifications, was lost eight of for the
moment. She was the Inspiration for
it all, the goal and reward for which.
"Betty!" the single word fell softiy
from his Hps. He stepped Into the
room, closing the doer as ha did so.
The girl's eyes were dilating with s
mute horror, for by some swirt. In
tuitive process of the mind, which
asked nothing of the logic of events,
but dealt only with conclusions, Mur
reil stood revealed as Norton's mur
derer. Perhaps he read her thoughts,
but he had lived Ln his degenerate
ambitions until the common Judg
ments or the understanding of them
no longer existed for htm. That Bet
ty had loved Norton seemed Inconse
quential even; it was a memory to
bo swept away by the force of his
greater passion. So he watched her
smilingly, but back of the smile was
the menace of unleashed impulse.
"Can't you find some word of wel
come for me, Betty?" he asked at
length, still softly, still with some
thing of entreaty In his tone.
"Then It was you not Tom who
had mo brought here!" She could
have thanked God had It been Tom,
whose hate was not to be feared as
sho feared this man's love.
"Tom no!" and Murroli laughed.
"You didn't think I'd give you up? J
am standing with a halter about my
neck, and all for your sake who'd
rUk as much for love of you?" He
seemed to expand with savage pride
that this was so, and took a step to
"Don't come near me!" cried Betty.
Her eyes blazed, and she looked at
him with loathing.
'You'll learn to ba kinder," he ex
ulted. "You wouldn't see me at Belle
Plain; what was left for me but to
have you brought here?"
While Murreil was speaking the sig
nal that had told of bis own presence
on the opposite shore of the bayou
was heard agalu. This served to ar
rest his attention. A look of uncer
tainty passed over his face, then he
made an impatient gesture as if be
dismissed some thought that had
forced Itself upon him, and turned
"You don't ask what my purpose is
where you are concerned; you have
no curiosity on that score?" She en
deavored to meet his glance with a
glance as resolute, then her eyes
sought the boy's upturned face. "I
am going to send you down river, Bet
ty. Later I shall Join you ln New )!
leans, and hen I leave the country
you shall go with me"
"Never!" gasped Betty.
"As my wife, or -however you choose
to call it. I'll teach you what a man's
love Is like," be boasted, and extend
ed his hand. Betty shrunk from bltn,
and his band fall at his side. Ha
looked at her steadily out of his deep-
sunk eyes, in which blazed tho fires of
his pasBlon, and be looked, hel
face paled and flushed by turns. "You
may learn to be kind to me, Betty,"
ho said. "You may find It will t
worth your while." Betty made no
answer; she only gathered Hannibal
closer to her eide. "Why not accept
what I have to offer,1 Eoi.ly 7" Again
he went nearer ber, and again she
shrank from him, but tho madness ol
his mood was ln the ascendant. H
seized her and drew her to him. 8hs
struggled to free herself, but his fin
gtis tightened about ber.

OOLDFN TKXT-"In the bcg-lnnlna;
Hod created the heaven and tha earth."
In our scheme of lesonn we return
to the Old Testament and confine our
study for tho ensuing year to the first
six books of the Bible.
Tho word Genesis means "begin
nings," and ln the book of that name
we see recorded all tho Information
of the beginning of things that our
heavenly father deemed necessary In
the development nf the scheme of re
demption. After all the assaults of Its ene
mies, end of the skeptics, the first
verse of the book of Genesis contains
nil tho clear, concise, and positive
knowledge man possesses about the
origin of this Universe. "God cre
ated," not, "God Is all and a!l is God."
Pantheism has no ground upon which
to stand. "In the beginning God cre
ated," therefore he Is above and was
before the heaven and the earth.
The beginning of all right thinking
and true living, of every proper rela
tion of life, Ib God and yet we are
withholding that knowledge from
young America upon tho specious
plea that tho bible,. i3 sectarian.
Truth of the Trinity.
Following this statement of tho cre
ation come the fiteps of rehabilitation,
for the words ln verpo two denote
waste, void, or confusion and one
Hebrew scholar contends for tho word
"ruin." See also Isa. 4.":18 R. V. Thus'
It seems that upon this created earth
there must have eomo a judgment,
presumably upon Benin pre-Adamlta
race and that what follows, versa two.
Is not the original creation but the"
steps whereby this earth was made
ready as a habitation for man.
Lord Kelvin said, "scientific thought
Is compelled to ncccpt the Idea of cre
ative power." There Is a wonderful
agreement between modern science
and tha account ln Genesis:- (1) The
biblical accounts by their wording
provide for both creation and the evo
lutionary development oif created
things; (2) Science has failed to pro
duce matter, life, or the soul of man;
and of these ln each instance tha
bible snys God created while of all
else It says he made.
The great truth of tho trinity Is re
vealed in these first three verses (1)
God, v. 1; (2) Spirit, v. 2; and (3)
"God said" the word, sen John 1:L
Verso five does not call the light a
day meaning twelve hours, but rather
a period of time, Just as we speak of
an Arctic "day," which Is six months.
Animal life cannot assimilate these
elements unless they nro already fixed
in organic vegetable life. How and
where lire originated no science has
discovered. Pasteur's dictum that,
"it is nothing but life which gener
ates lire." still stands unnhaken. Ad
so tho constant and only satisfactory
answer to the questions, how, where
and why, of all these things of this
material universe Is God. God cre
ated, God made, he created, and then
Bet into being thoso forces and laws
whereby the earth, the sky, the buii
and tha moon have gone on with un
broken regularity. He mado possible
those processes thereby man devel
ops, tho oak grows, and animal and
vegetable life reproduce each after
lta own kind.
But creation was rjt yet complete.
Man, the last created, was the crown
ing glory of this earthly creation.
Verses 2G-30 will be studied in con
nection with next week's lesson and
are referred to here simply to give a
complete account of creation. It
would bo well, howevor, to reier to
tho fact that the great God and cre
