"I am really sorry to trouble you,
Mrs. Scoville; but if you have time
this morning, will you clean up my
study before I leave? The carriage
is ordered for half-past nine."
The task wats one she had long de
sired to perform. Giving Reuther the
rest of the work to do, she presently
appeared before him with pail and
broom and a pile of fresh linen. Noth
ing more commonplace could be imag
ited, but to her, if not to him, there
underlay this special act of ordinary
houisewifery a possible enlightenment
on a sibiect which had held the whole
comitunity in a state of curiosity for
years. She was going to enter the
room which had been barred from pub
lie sight by poor Bela's dying body.
The great room before her pre
sente(l a bare floor, whereas on her
first visit it had been very decently,
if not carfutilly, covered by a huge car
pet rug. The judge's chair, which had
once lookd immovable, had been
dragged forward into such a position
Iluat Ie could keep his own eye on tle
bedroom door. Manifestly she was not
to be allowed to pursue her duties un
watched. Certainly she had to take
more ihan one look at the every-day
itoplementits she carried to retain that
bialance of judgment which should pre
vent her from becoming the dupe of
lir own expeetations.
"I do not expect you to clean up here
as thoroughly as you have your own
roomis ij)stairs," lie remarked, as she
lmissed himit. "And, Mrs. Scoville," he
called out as she slipped through the
d(oorway, "leave the door open an(
keep away as mitch as possible from
the side of the room where I have
nailed up the curtain. I had rather
tnot have that touched."
Not touch tile cuAain! Why, that
was the one thing in the room she
wan-tiled to touch; for In it she not only
saw the carpet which had been taken
upil from the floor, but a possible
screen behind which anything might
lurk---even his redoubtable secret.
"There is no winldow," she observed,
lo.(ing back at the judge.
"No," was his short ilply.
Slowly she set down her pall. One
thintg was settled. It was Hela's cot
she saw before her-a cot without any
sheets. These had been left behind
inl tie dead negro's room, and the
judge had been sleeping just as she
had feared, wrappel imn a rug and with

In' recalling this startling moment
Deborah wondered as much at her own
aplomb as' at that of Judge Ostran
der. Not only had she succeeded in
suppressing all recognition of what
had thus been discovered to her, but
had carried her powers of self-repres
sion so far as to offer, and with good
grace, too, to assist him in rehanging
the picture. This perfection of act
ing had its full reward. With equal
composure he excused her from the
task, and, adding some expression of
regret at his well-known carelessness
in not looking better after his effects,
bowed her from the room with only a
slight increase of his usuat zourteous

ing could be more ordinary than to
find a knife in the desk drawer of a
young man! The fact was not worth
a thought; yet before she knew it her
fingers were creeping towards this
knife, had picked it up from among
the other scattered articles, had closed
upon it, let it drop again, - only to
seize hold of it yet more determinedly
and carry it straight to the light.
The knife was lying open on her
palm, and from one of the blades C.he
end had been nipped, just enough of

Was she mad! She thought so for
a moment; then she laid down the
knife close against the cap and con
templated them both for more minutes
than she ever reckoned.
The candle fluttering low in its
socket roused her at last frbm her ab
straction. Catching up the two ar
ticles which had so enthralled her, she
restored the one to the closet, the
other to the drawer, and, with swift
but silent step, regained her own
room, where she buried her head in
her pillow, weeping and praying until
the morniftg light, breaking in upon
her grief, awoke her to the obligations
of her position and the necessity of
silence concerning all the experiencer
of this night.
Silence. Yes, silence was the one
and only refuge remaining to Deborah.
Yet, after a few days, the constant
self-restraint which it entailed ate
like a canker into her peace and un
dermined a strength which she had
always considered inexhaustible. Reu
ther began to notice her pallor, and
the judge to look grave. She was
forced to complain of a cold (and in
this she was truthful enough) to ac
count for her alternations of feverish
impulse and deadly lassitude. Tho
trouble she had suppressed was hav
ing its quiet revenge.
Wes there no medium course? Could
she not learn where Oliver had been
on the night of that old-time murder?

She had passed the first gate and

made out to read thus:

Because Deborah's minnd was quick
it all flashed upon her, bowing her in
spirit to the ground. Reuther had
bewn singed by the knowledge of her
father's ignominy, she would be con
sumedi if inquiry were carried further
and this ignominy transferred to the
proper culprit. Oliver alone could be
meant. The doubts she had tied to
suppress from her own mind wvere
shared by others-others!
In five minutes she was crossing the
road, her face complosed, her manner
genial, her tongue ready for any en
counter. The truth must be hers at
all hazards. If it could be found here,
then here would she seek it. Her long
struggle with fate had brought to the
fore every latent power she possessed.

LESSON FOR DECEMBER 26
JEHOVAH'S GRACIOUS PROMISES
TO ISRAEL (REVIEW).
LESSON TEXT-Hosea 14.
'GOLDEN TEXT-Jehovah is merciful
and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant
in loving kildness.-Psa. 103:8 R. V.
The burden of punishment descend
ed upon Israel, not because of the
vindictive character of Jehovah, but
because of the persistent pursuit of
sin on the part of the nation.
The lessons of the past quarter ex
tend from the latter days of Elijah,
about 906 B. C., to the fall and cap
tivity of Israel (the northern king
dom) B. C. 722 (Beecher), a period of
180 years. Some contend that the les
son for November 14, Daniel at the
King's Court, is chronologically the
last and ought to have been put at
the end of the series. During the past
quarter we have studied about six
kings, Ahab, Joash, Nebuchadnezza'r,
the king of Nineveh, Uzziah and Ho
shea; also six prophets, Elijah, Eli
sha, Daniel, Jonah, Amos and Hosea;
and one soldier, Naaman.
A good method of review would be
to have assigned to different scholars
or classes each of the foregoing per
sonages and to give a report of his
chief characteristics. Material for
such a review is easily accessible. An
other method of review would be to
take up tne lessons serially and in
connection with each read some ap
propriate Scripture verses that will
serve to emphasize or to i~lustrate
the chief fact of each lesson.
Lesson I. The weak King Ahaz
(strong in his perversity) is .easily
persuaded to do evil in order to grati-s
fy hip covetousness. Elijah at God's
command goes to meet Ahab who
cries out, "Hast thou found me, 0
my enemy?" In reply Elijah delivers
God's word; that word to us is found
in Ex. 2C:17. (Let each Scripture ref
erence be read in full.)
Lesson 11. The veteran champion
Elijah is about to go h6me and his
more youthful follower, Elisha, has
one chief desire (see II Kings 2:9),
which persistently followed is abund
antly rewarded. The lesson for us is
found in the master's prayer, John
Lesson ill. The stricken soldier,
Naaman, at a child's suggestion, ap
peals to God's prophet, Elisha, for
healing. He is directed how lie may
be cured and after some hesitation
returns home cleansed. The lesson
for us Is that of being faithful amid
life's experiences and of doing and
living for others (see also Romans
Lesson IV. The servant of Elisha
is very much excjited. King and camp
are in dlespair, yet the prophet is not
disturbed. Why? Let us read HI
Kings 6: 17. Rlemember that Jesus,
the master of men, refused to avail
himself of like angelic assistance in
his great battle concerning sin (See
Matt. 26:53). Ch'istanity is a religion
of love, not of force.
Lesson V. The faithful priest pre
serves the rightful king. Joash, and
makes a co nant between him and
the Lord, viz., that prince, priest and
people "should be the Lord's people"
(II Kings 11:17). Through the mer'
its of our high priest there has been
made p better, even an everlasting
covenant (Heb. 13:20, 21).
Lesson VI. Again refers to the good
king, Joash. The neglected temple is
restored and refurnished through the
liberality of the people. This temple
is a type of our bodies, which are
spiritual temples (Eph. 2:22), and the
lesson for us is not only the care of
the body, but of liberality towards the
work and worship of God's house,
Lesson VII. This is the lesson
which is chronologically out of order,
but is used for its temperance appl~ica
tion. DanIel, the clean youth, staked
his life and position upon obeying the
word of God (Dan.,1:8W 'i t'e lesson
for us is the exhortation 'of the apes
tlQ Paul (Eph. 5:13-17, see also I Pet.
Lesson VIII is the foreign mission
ary lesson. Jonah's life story is not
a flattering one, yet when he faithful
ly proclaimed God's word it wrouglat
a marvelous transformation in great
and wicked Nineveh. (Rlea~d carefully
Matt. 16:10 and Isa. 755:10, 11), We
are to heralu, witness to the truth
and leave the results with God.
Lesson IX presents Amos, the stur
dy prophet of civic and moral right
eousness, the great messenger of the
"rightness'.' of things (Amos 6:14).
The gist of this lesson f'or us will be
found in the words of Jesus (Matt.
Lesson X. Uzziah is that king who
could not withstand prosperity and
who, in the development of his pride
(IH Chron. 26:5, 16), atisumed to dis
obey the word of God,
Lesson XI. Enter H-osea. Let the
entire school stats the, message of the
prophet to the people of Israel, "I will
heal their backsliding. I will love
them freely" (H~osea 14:4). Then let
all recite the "little gospel" (John
3:16) "For God so loved the world
that he gave his only begotten Son
that whosoever believeth in him
should iot perish, but have everlast
