spitefully: "It will take iore than the
pardon of poor Juan Garcia to unlock
heaven for that bitiit. Do you nlotice

Upon her arrival at the hotel Alaire

said slowly. "At least we don't under

habits of mind. Frotm my experience
with them, I wouldn't put much confl
dence in this Longorlo's word. f say
this, armI I'm supposed to have a little
Mexican blood in me."
During this brief conversation they
had entered the hotel, and she gave
her hand to Law.
"I hope we shall see each other
again." she murmured.
"That's more'n likely: I'm lonted in
your neighborhood now." he informed
her. "I'm leav-ing for Jonesvllle in the

Mlindful of the Ranger's courtesy to
her on theIr previous mecetinig, Alaire
said: "Won't you go with us? We in
tend to start early."
Dave was nearly speechless with de
light. and when the mistress of Las
Palmas had gone upstairs he felt in
clined to pirtch himself to see if he
were dreamine. He had 'pursued a
fruitless quem' dunrin the past few
days. and his resoantment had grown
as he became certain that Tad Lewis
had? sent him on a wlui-goose chase;
but the sight of Alaiire miraculously
restored his good spirits. andl the pros
pect of a long. intimate ride in her
company changed the whole trend of
his thoughts. His disap'pointment at
notsen her upon his visit to Las'
Pamshad only' servedl to enhance
his memories of their tnrst meeting, and
tinme now had deopenoli his interest
tenfold. Yet, she' was "The Lone

about his feeliniz: h.' was more than

Had Dave only known the truth, he
would have gained a grim comfort
from it. for Alaire Austin was'not en

eame restive under the flow of his con
versation. For some reason or other,
Longorio was not the romantic figure
he had been; in his citizen's clothes
he was only a dandified Mexican gal
lant like any number of others. The
color was gone from the picture; this
quixotlc guerrilla hero, this elegant
Hiuy Blas, was nothing more than a
tall, olive-skinned foreigner, whose ar

Jose Sanchez Swears an Oath.
Jose Sanchez made use of the delay
at Pueblo to institute further inquiries
regarding his missing cousin. but no
where could he find the slightest trace.
Jose swore an oath that he would learn
the truth if it required his whole life
time, and, if it should turn out that
his sainted relative had indeed met
with foul play-well! Jose told his
friends they could judge, by looking at
him, the sort of man he was. He proud
ly displayed Longorio's revolver, and
called it his cousin's little avenger. The
weapon had slain many; it had a duty
still to perform, so he . aid.
Jose intended to confide his purpose
to Mrs. Austin, but when it came time
to start for Las Palmas there was a
fourth passenger in the automobile,
"You Wont to School In the East,
and he was obliged to hold his tongue
for the moment. Alaire was in good

Dave told her of the latest develop

him about his own doings, he informed
her of the affair which had brought

story of Pino Garza's death; Dolores

"How did yQu happen to read Ana

sharp stare of surprise.
The Ranger stirred, but he did not
meet her eyes. "Well," said he, "I
read 'most anything I can get. A fel
ler meets up with strange books just
like he meets up with strange people."
"Not books like-that." There was
a brief silence. "Mr. Law, you went
to school in the East, didn't you?
Where?" The man hesitated, at which
she insisted, "Where?"
Dave reluctantly turned upon her a
pair of eyes in the depths of which
there lurked the faintest twinkle.
"Cornell," said he.
Alaire gasped. After a while she re
marked, stiffly, "You have a peculiar
sense of humor."
"Now don't be offended," lie begged
her. "I'm a good deal like a chamue
leon; I unconsciously change mlly color
to suit my surroundings. When we
first met I saw that you took me for

"Why did you let me send you those
silly books? I dare say you've had a
fine laugh at my expense?"
"No!" gravely denied the man.
They had come to an arroyo contain
ing a considerable stream of muddy
water, and Law was forced to get out
to plug the carburetor and stop the oil
intakes to the crank-case. This done,
Alaire ran the machine through on the
self-starter.. When Jose's "Caram
bas I" and Dolores' shrieks had sub
sided, and they were again under way,
Mrs. Austin, it seemed, had regained
her good humor.
"You will receive no more of my fa
vorite authors," she told Dave, spite
fully. 'il keep them to read my

Alaire turned her' eyes upon the
questioner, and there were no girlish
illusions in them. "Do you?" she quer
led, with a faint curl of her lip.
She shook her head. "Men have
changed. Nowadays they are all self
ish and sordid. But-I shouldn't gen
eralize, for I'm a notorious man-hater,
He nodded, whereupon she eyed him
speculatively. "Let us see, You are
a man-how far would you go for the
woman you loved?"
"The limit !"
Mrs. Austin frowned at this light
seeming answer, "I suppose you mean
that .you would make any sacrifice?"
"Yes; that's it."
"Would you give up the woman her
self, if you considered it your duty?"
"No. There couldn'i be any duty
higher than love-to my way of think
ing. But you shouldn't take me as
a specimen. I'rh not a good represen
tative of my sex."
"I think you are a very good one,"
Alaire said quietly, and Dave realized
that no flattery was intended.
Despite the rough roads, they made
fair time, and the miles of cactus and
scrawny brush rolled swiftly past. The
morning sun swung higher, and by
midday the metal of the automobile
had become- as hot as a frying pan.

LESSON FOR JUNE 17
THE RISEN LORD.
LESSON TEXT-John 20:2-16.
GOLDEIN TEXT-Bitt now is Christ
risen froln the dead, and become .the first
fruits of them that slept.-I Cor. 15:20.
?he death of Christ made a deep'
impression upon the beholders (Luke
23:48, 49). Joseph, who seemns to have
been a secret disciple, obtained the
body, and gave it burial (Mark 15:
42-47). In Mark's record we have the
story of the discovery of the resurrec
tion by the women, nnd Matthew tells
us how his .enemies dealt with that
fact. le sure to use a good harmony
of the four gospels in presenting all
of these lessons, else some important
detail will be overlooked.
1. Mary's Visit to the Tomb (vv.1
10). Thte Sabbath ended at sundown,
iAd the shops were then open, and
Mary Magdalene was able to purchase
spices with which to anoint the dead
body of Jesus. There is strting prob
ability that the women paid a visit
to the tomb late on Sitturday (Matt.
28:1, R. V.). Starting the neat morn
ing, "while it was yet dark" (v. 1),
they came to the tomb to perform this
last service of love. Jesus had no
need of such service (Matt. 10:27; 20:
19), but the women were rewarded by
receiving the first glimpse of the risen
Lord. There were live appearances on
this first day of the week: (L) to Mary
Magdalene, (2) to the "other women,"
(3) to Peter; (4) to those on the way
to Emmaus, and (5) to the ten dis
ciples, Thomas being abseit.
None of these seemed to expect Je
sus to be risen, for they had each
failed to listen to and pondet his
words. The extent and genuineness of
the affection of the women is found in
that they went to serve Jesus when
apparently all hope had failed (I Cor.
13:8, R. V.). As soon as Mary saw
the stone rolled away, she concluded
that the tomb had been rifled, and
hastened to report to the disciples
(v. 2). This report of the women to
the disciples was considered "as idle
tales" (Luke 24:11). With intense
eagerness Peter tind John ran to the
tomb thus reported as being robbed.
John, the younger, reached the tomb
d first, but in reverence did not enter,
only stooping to look in (vv. 4, 5).
Peter, the impetuous one, rushes in
side, and sees the linen clothed lying,
d and the napkin that had, been about
Le the head carefully folded and lying in
I a place by itself (v. 7). This appar
d ently insignificant detail is one which
P is really significant, inasmuch as it
shows that the tomb had not been
rifled, leaving disorder behind. In
d stead of excitedly snatching the nap.
>f kin from his face, and hurling it
t- whither it might fall, he had quietly
ttaken it off, and in an orderly way
*n laid it aside. It is in such minute de
ttails as this that we see the greatest
evidence of the veracity of this ree
Le I1. Mary Wgping (vv. 11-15). The
s- disciples returned to thieir owvn homes,
a, and doubtless to tihe other disciples
(v. 10). but the loving Mary remained
a b~ehiind in this place made sacred as
having housed the body of the Lord.
1- It is natural for us to llager in silent
'meditation in places of our greatest
irevelation or of our deepest soul ex
perience. Jesus had told his disciples
r-over and over again that he should rise
11 again. andi it seems strange that his
it enemies should have rememheed it
s.(Ma tt. 27 :03) and his friends not.
Ill. Mary Worshiping (vv. 16-18).
There must have been an inflection in
the voice of Jesus, for, upon the utter
ance of that one word, "Mary," she
arecognized her risen Lord. Joyfully
is she exclaimed, "Rabboni," that is to
p, say, "Master" (v. 16), and wvould have
~,poured out ,her love and worship at
.his feet. Jesus, however, does not suf
.fer her to hold hint fast. Mary must
.'leave him, and tell the others. Liter
tally, he says, "Do not lay hold of me
hiut go and make known the glad truth
Sthat I am risen again." The risen Lord
dmust retuirn to "My Father" and "My
God," whereas the one who would
gladly have remained at his feet must
ago to the brethren, and make known
the facts of the fulfillnment of prophecy
and the resurrection of our Lord.
The bribed soldiers spread abroad
the tale that the disciples had stolen
his body. The later lives of these dis
ciples, their heroism .and martyr<dom,
are evidence of the absurdity of any
such act on their part.
The resurrection of Jesus is a vin
dication of Ils claim to being the Son
of God. We do well to emphasize his
birth, and to dwell much upon his
death, yet both of these have no es
sential value apart from his resurrec
Apart from this, the cross is the end
of a failure. The resurrection dem
j.onstrated that Jesus Christ's rediemp
tion was not completed upon the cross.
s. The resurrection is better authenticat
iS ed than- any other event in history.
~tThe risen Lord called this weak
h bandi of disciples "my brethren"
(Matt. 28:10). H~e is our brother still,
and we are to proclaim his work of
redemption, the proof of which is the.
