But the fellow's hatred was eit of

his vitujperat ion lie seemed to invite
death. Ibtive interrupted his vitriolic
curses to ask hartshly:
"llyou tell me, or will you force
me to wrinig the truth out of you?"
Jose aniswered by spittinig at his enp
tor; then he grittedl tan unspeakable
epithet fromi between his teeth.
Da~ve addre'hssedl himt with an air of
finaility'. "Yu killed that maun andtt
your life is forfeit, so it dioesin't make
much-l difference whnetheri I take It or
whether thte state tatkes It. You are

"hOh yes, I can I I intend to know all
that you know, and it wvill be better
for you to tell me voluntarily. I must
learn where Sonora Austin is, and I
must learn quickly, if I have to kill you
by inches to get the truth."
"So! Torture, eli? Good. I can be
lieve it of you. WVell, a slow fire will
not make me speak."
"No. A fire would be too easy, Jose."
Without answer Dave strode out of
the room. He wves back before his
prisoner could udo mere than wrench
at his bonds, nr~.d with him he brought
his lariat and his canteen.
"What are you going to do?2" Jose in
quired, backing away until lhe was once
more at bay.
"I'm going to give you a drink,"
"Whisky? Toua think you can mnake

"Not whisky; water. I'm going to

"What capers I"
"When you've drunk enough you'll
tell me why you killed your eluployer
and where General Longorlo has taken
his wife. Yes, and everything else I
want to know." Seizing the amazed
Mexican, Dave flung him upon Mo
rales' hard board bench, and in spite of
the fellow's struggles deftly muade him
fast. When he had finished--and it
was no easy job-Jose lay "spread
eagled" upon his back, his wrists and
ankles firmly bound to the corners and
foot posts, his body secured by a tight

painfully and brought a curse from the
prisoner when he strained at it. Law
surveyed him with a face of stone.
"I don't want to do this," he de
elared, "but I know your kind. I give
youi one more chance. Will you tell
Jose drew his lips back in a snarl of
rage and pain, and Dave realized that
further words were useless. He felt a
certain pity for his victim and no little
cllliration for his courage, but such
feelings were of small consequeliee
its against his agonizing fears for
Alaire's safety. Iad lie in the least
doubted Jose's guilty knowledge of
Longorio's intentions, Dave wuuli have
hesitated before employing the bar
barous measures he had in m.inl, hut
there was nothing else for it. lie puliled
the canteen cork and Jantined the
mouthpiece firmly to Jose's lips. Clos
ing the fellow's nostrils with his free
hand, he forced him to drink.
Jose clenched his teeth, he triel to
roll his head, he held his breuti until
his face grew purple and his eyes
bulged. He strained like a man upon
the rack. The bench creaked to his
muscular contortions; the rople tight
ened. It was terribly cruel, this crush
ing of a strong will bent on resistance
to the uttermost; but never Vas an
executioner more pitiless, never dhi ai
prisoner's agony receive less colsid
eratlon. The warm water spillbd over
Jose's face, it drenched his neck and
chest ; his joints creaked us he strove
for freedom and tried to twist his head
out of Law's iron grasp. The secondS
dragged, until finally nature asserted
herself. The imprisoned bre:aill burst
forth ; there sounded a loud gurgling
cry and a choki:ng inhalation. .Jose's
body writhed with the convulsions of
drowning as the water and air were
sucked into his lungs. Law wus kneel
ing over his victim now, his weight and
strengtlh so applied that Jose had no
liberty 0 action and could only drink,
coughing and fighting for air. Some
ho0w he manasged to revive himself
briefly and again shut his teeth; but
a moment more and he was again
retched with the furious battle for air,
more desperate now than before. After
a while Law freed his victim's nostrils
and allowed him a partial breath, then
once iore crushed the mouthpiece
against his lips. By and by, to relieve
his torture, Jose began to drink in
great noisy gulps, striving to empty
But the stomach's capacity is lim
itet. In time Jose felt himself burst
ing; the liquid began to regurgitate.
This was not mere pain that he' suft
fered, but the ultimate nightmare hor
ror of death more awful than anything
he had ever imagined. Jose would
have met a bullet,,a knife, a lash, with
out flinchling; flames would not have
served to weaken is resolve; but this
slowv drowning was infinitely worse
tihan the worst he had thought pos
sible; he was suffocating by long,
btlack, agonizing mlinutes. Every nerve
anld muscle of his body, every cell in
his burstisng lungs, fought against the
outrage in a purely physical frenzy
over which his will power had no con
trol. Nor would insensibility come to
his relief--Law watched him too care
fully for that. He could not even voice
is sufferings by shrieks ; he could only
writhe and retch and gurgle while the
ropes bit into his flesh and his captor
knelt upon him like a monstrous stone
But Jose had made a better fight
thanli he knew. Tile canlteen ran dry at
last, and Law was forced to release his
"\Vill you speak?" he demanded.
Thinking that he had come safely
through the- ordeal, Josd shook Ils
hlead~ ; he0 rolled his bulging, bloodshot
(eyes and1( vomilted, thlen manlaged to call
Gbod to witness his innocence.
lDave went into the next room and
reilill tile canteen. When he re
appeared with the dripping vessel inl
his haund, Jose tried to scream. But
Isis thlroat was torn and strainedi; the
sounld of Is own voice frIghtened him.
Once snore the torment began. The
tortured man was weaker now, and in
consequence he resisted more feebly ;
but nlot until he was less than half con
scious did Law spare him to recover.
Jose lay sick, frightened, inert. Dave
watched him without pity. The fel
low's wrists were black and swollen,
his lips were bleeding; he was
stretchled like a dumb animal upon the
vivisectionist's table, and no surgeon
with lance and scalpel could have
shown less emotion thlan did his in
qusisitor. Having -no intention of de
feating his own ends, Dajve allowedhis
victim ample time in which to regain
his ability to suffer.
Alaire Austin had been right wvhen
shte said that Dave might be ruthless;
and yet the man was by no means in
capable of compassion. At the present
mlomlent, however, he considered him
self simply as the instrument by which
Alaire was to be saved. His$ own feel
ings had nothing to do with the mat
ter ; neither had the sufferings of this
Mexican. Therefore he steeled himself
to prolong the agony until the mulrder
er's stubborn spirit was worn down.
Once again he put his question, and,
again receiving defiance,. jammed the
C.anteen between Rose's teeth.

lie was no longer the insolent defier,
the challenger, but an imploring
wretch, whose last powers of resist
ance had been completely shattered.
Ills frightened eyes were glued to that
devilish vessel in which his manhood
had dissolved, the fear of it made a
womatan of him.
Slowly, in sighs and whimpers, in
agonies of reluctance, his story came;
his words were rendered almost incom
prehensille by his abysmal fright.
WV'hen he had purged himself of his
secret Dave promptly unbound him;
then leuiving him more than half dead,
he went to the telephone which con

Ilie was surprised when Blaze Jones

arrived, summOned by news of tl

surprise and inereilulity. "I mean it.

quick; and come alone, if you don't
mind. I need your help."
Inside of ten minutes .Tones piloted
his automobile into the clearing heside
the river, and, leaving his motor run

Dave met him at the door of the
Morales house and briefly told him the
story of Jose's capture.

rancher cried, admiringly. "Why, Ed

"I mean Longorlo and his outfit. lHe's
got her over yonder." Dave flung out
a trembling hand towvard the rivar.
Seeing that his hearer failed to comn

crazy about her-got one of those
Mexican infatuations-and you know
what that means. lie couldn't steal
her from Las Palmnas-she wouldn't

used that old cattle deal as an excuse
to get her across the border. Then he
put Ed out of the way. She wvent of

"La Feria I Then she's in for it."

LESSON FOR AUGUST 19
FINDING THE BOOK OF THE LAW.
LESSON TEXT-II Chronicles 24:14-33.
GOLI)N TEXT-I will not forgot thy
I. The Book of the Law Found (vy.
11-17), 1. The occasion (v. 14). It was
found while the work of repairing the
temple was going on. At what part in
the temple we do not know; perhaps
in the treasure house, for it was found
while bringing out the money to pay
for the renairs. Perhaps this was in
or near the ark, for the law was usual
ly kept in or by the ark.
2. By :hom (v. 14). Hilkiah, the
high priest, was the finder. It is
strange that the high priest was igno
rant of the place where the law was
found. It is a sad comment upon the
moral and spiritual condition of priests
and kings, since they were appointed
guardians of God's law. It is, however,
always true that when one does not
want to have his life ordered by the
Bible he will put it out of his sight.
The disappearance of the Bible from
our homes, and the neglect of it in our
study, is a certain sign of evil in our
lives. Be assured, however, that
though the law of the Lord be removed
from our sight it shall sooner or later
come before us to judge us. God has
declared that his Word shall not return
unto him void, but shall accomplish that
whereunto it bath been sent.
3. Its disposition (v. 10). Hilkiah
gave the law to Shaphan the scribe,
who delivered it to the king along with
his report as to the disposition of the
money which had been collected.
ii. The Book of the Law Read (vv.
18, 29. 30). 1. To the king (v. 18).
This was a most impressive scene, the
king listening to the reading of the
law of God. It was the proper thing
to do, for those appointed by God to
rule over the people should be anxiou
to know the will of God concerning
them. The pious king, believing in it
as God's Word, was anxious to know
God's thought concerning the nation.
Bs interest became intense, as he was
made conscious of the apostasy of his
people from God's law. His chief anxi
ety was to know what was God's pur
pose as to the nation in view of their
idolatry. It Is a sensible thing to make
oneself intelligent as to his responsi
bilities, even to know what judgments
shall befall those who have turned
from God. One should know the worst
while there is time yet to escape his
wrath, for renentanee is the only door
of escape from perdition.
2. To the people (vv. 29, 30). At the
direction of the king the priests, elders
and all the people were called together
to hear God's Word read. This was as
it ever should be. People have a right
to hear what God has to say to them
as well as the king. To keep the people
ignorant of the Word of the Lord is a
great crime. The crying need of the
age, with all its boasted knowledge, fine
church equipment and cultured minis
try, is for thle Word of God to be
brought to the ears of the people.
lII. The Effect of the Reading of the
Law. (vv. 20-28; 31-33). When God's
Word is intelligently read and under
stood thlere is bound to be an inmpres
1. The king rent his clothes (v. 19).
The man who will honestly listen to
the reading of God's Word will be
broughlt to his knees, for he will be conl
victed of sin, and will take the place of
self-abasement before the Lord. The
kinlg first saw his own sins and con
fessed them. It is a good sign when
one sees his own shortcomings and
failures, and not primarily those of
2. The king made inquiry of tihe Lord
throughl Huldah the prophetess (vv. 22
28). His supremne motive in this in
quirf was to find out whether thlere
was sarse way to avert the awful judlg
meats which were impending, as set
forth in thle Word of God. After ali,
the hluman heart instinctively turns
froma threatened woe to inquire wheth
er there is not a way of escape. Along
side of the flaming, thundering Sinai
wais placed the Levitical system of
afferings. Law and grace are not far
r mioved. The iaw becomes our school
master to bring us to Christ. Through
Huldah the message came that God
had taken account of all their sins and
thlat jud~gment must fall, but Josiah
would be spared the sight of all God's
visitation of wrath. The penitence of
the king turned aside God's wrath
from himself, but the nation wouldl be
obliged to suffer for its awful apostasy.
8. The king made a covenant (vv. 31,
82). This was to the effect that he
would walk in the commandments of
the Lord. He also made the people
stand to this covenant. lHe no doubt
acted from the sincerity of his heart.
4. Further reforms (v. 33). Josiah
now reached out as far as the national
boundaries, took away their abomina
tions and made Israel to serve the
Lord their God. The fact that thme book
of the law was found implies that It
had been lost. The way it had been
lost is not definitely set forth, but nu
merous ways may be suggested. The
Bible is a lost book to many professing
Christians today, maybe through lack
o' interest In It, willful neglect or neg
lect through the stress of life's busi
ness p.nd pleasures. May we heot each
one inutilre as to whether our Bibles
