LESSON TEXT Luke 12:18-24.
GOLDEN TEXT "Whero your treasure
la, there' will bo your heart also." Luke
The section before ub has a very
logical progression from the Introduc
tory request to tho words ot Jesus
which constitute the. golden text.
Jesus Is still In the midst ot his
Perean ministry. This ' lesson oc
curred but a few months before tho
1. The lesson w. 13-15. "One out
of the multitude" desired to bolster
his claim to a portion of an Inheri
tance. He was sure that hlB brother
needed admonition from Jesus, the
result of which would accrue to his
advantage. Jesus made a sharp, quick
reply. Ho had been teaching about
the sin of covetousness, but by his
answer ho Intimates that his mission
was not to Judge men of that or any
other sin. His work as a judge was
to come later, John 5:19-32. There
are thousands who for the prospect of
personal gain would strictly enforce
tho ethical principles of the gospel
though at the same time they are not
willing themselves to abide there
under Covetousness Is a desire to
secure more and It is not confined
to the rich nor to the poor. There
fore Jesus sounds a warning, "take
beed" (v. 16) o. g., beware. This itch
ing Is so gradual and often begins
with a desire to possess things that
are good of themselves and frequent
ly good for him that has possession.
But as It creeps In we find it becom
ing a great sin. A desire to build up
a church, or even to compass the sal
vation of a loved one, may be ani
mated by a selfish, covotous motive,
see I Cor. 5:10, 11; 6:10, and Eph.
5:3. 5. A man's life consists not of
the things possessed and the desire
to get should be lost In the desire to
be for the glory of God.
Lighten Other's Burdens.
li. The illustration, vv. 16-21. This
warning of Jesus against wrong sense
valuations and his suggestion as to
the true source ot life, are empha
sized by bis Illustration from, life. All
material values come from the earth.
Mine, forest and field are the sources
of all wealth. But in this Illustration
the ground yielded "plentifully." He
took great counsel with himself. In
these three verses are twelve personal
pronouns. Prosperity Is heaped upon
prosperity, yet his enterprises were
lawful and legitimate for there is no
suggestion of wrong methods. The
trouble was that In his self-centered
pride he saw only the gratification of
his material appetites. Any human
activity, even the highest, may be
come 'grossly self-centered. His plans
of enlargement were wise In the sight
of men, but he left God out of his cal
culations, and this Is the common mis
take worldly men are making, Jas.
4:13-15. His anxiety, a characteris
tic of those who trust In riches, was
uncalled for, and tho folly of that
course was revealed In a flash when
Ire was called Into the presence ot
Godr "The things which thou hast
prepared, whose shall they be?"
Jesus reveals tho worthlessness of
such motives, the usolessness of such
anxiety, and its unworthlness In view
of what God is In himself, w. 20, 21.
He who can array the lily and clothe
the grass of the field. The place to
lay up goods Is not in barns, Mark
10:21; the right way to be merry
Is to lighten the burden of another,
and the way to satisfy the soul Is
not to pamper the body. Read John
4:13, 14; John 7:37-39; I. Tim. 5:6;
Jas. 5:5; Rev. 18:7.
True Way of Life.
III. The application, w. 22-34.
Jesus then proceeds to set before his
disciples the true way of life from
the positive side, just as in the illus
tration he had set before them ths
negative side. Those who aro living
In right relationships with God are
not to seek 'satisfaction In the things
ot time and sense, those things of
which their fathor knows they' have
need, and which he will supply, Phil.
4:19. They are, however, to seek
his kingdom and to rest in confidence
In the knowledge that it Is his pleas
ure to give to them that kingdom
(v. 32), The way to get is to give,
Prov. 11:24, 25. This is laying up
treasure in heaven. Every man is tho
Judge of his own acts. If they be ac
cording to divine standards, his do
clnlon Is wise. If not, the Bible char
acterizes that man as a fool. It Is
our sense ot values which determines
our wisdom.
IV. The teaching. Jesus does not
begin In hlB dealings with the sub
jects of his kingdom by making com
pulsory division of their possessions.
In this lesson we can see the false
and the true method by which to
establish right eoclal conditions.
This man's Idea was to "divide";
Christ's Idea is expressed in the
words, "sell and give alms." The pas
sion of this man was to possess, the
passion ot Christ was to give, Matt
20:28. In tho mind of Christ, life
4e4s not consist of the; things pos
cwrted, John' 6:27. Things have ft
rates 'only as life Is strong.)

bored tones.
Jeannette froze
him with a look.
"If you want to

said savagely.
"Always alliter

tioned smiling.
"Mprely a mat

replied, flushing
under his laugh
ing look.
"What shall we
talk about, then?"
he questioned
"Yourself," she
responded with
Jeannette help
ed herself to salad before she, asked,
wrinkling her dainty brows In curi
osity", "What, for goodness' sake? You
look like a triple tragedy in bronze."
Then, as a suspicion took shape in
her mine, she laid her fork down and
faced him fearfully. "You're not"
Words failed her. ,
He nodded solemnly. "I certainly
am, to ray everlasting sorrow," he re
plied with feeling.
Jeannette sighed. "Then, we're two
of a kind,' she said, "and we were put
together for a purpose. I'll really have
to ask your name. My thoughts were
wool gathering when you were "
"Rhyme-gathering, more probably,"
he Interrupted, laughingly. "I'll con
fess that I've been trying in vain to
find a suitable rhyme for "
"Oh, don't!" she exclaimed, "as If
I didn't have troubles of my own. And
the name?" she asked suddenly.
"Wainwright Orrin Wainwright."
"Not the Wainwright?' she asked in
awed tones.
"The same, please your ladyship,"
he bowed with exaggerated deference.
"And here, I've been I've been just
too impertinent for Oh!" she stam
mered. "Let's form a truce and declare the
subject bared," he offered. She smil
ed an eager assent.
"May I ask where you are staying?"
"You may," she tendered.
"Then where" Her soft laugh
stopped his words. "I'm not staying
I live here," she offered conclliating-
"Yes, and where? I mean to call,"
he said quietly.
"No," Interrupted Jeannette, hur
riedly, "I don't' receive callers I have
n't time," she explained.
"So be it, your ladyship." She
glanced 'furtively at his strong face,
and scolded herself for the interest
it evoked.
"Did you ever have an ideal?" he
asked irrelevantly.
"Hears of 'em," she responded read
ily. "I mean, did you ever cherish the
likeness of a possibility and suddenly
discover that It was a real flesh and
blood creation Instead of a figment
ot an unstable imagination?"
She looked at him. curiously. "No."
"Then you can't understandhow one
would feel under such circumstances
or that one would have the desire
to " He paused and looked Into her
eyes with meaning. Jeannette laugh
ed and stirred in embarrassment.
"You don't mean " she began with
her customary straightforward direct
ness, "that I am the unspeakable "
"That is precisely what I do meau,"
he replied, gravely, "I didn't recog
nize the likeness at first. It was sev
eral minutes before you unbent suf
ficiently to bestow your smiles."
"Mr. Wainwright!" Jeannette bris
tled In simulated Indigation.
"It was -a spring day in early May,"
he continued dreamily, ignoring her
exclamation, "a bevy of school girls
with long braids down their backs
were parading the park. .The hat of
tho fairest one of them all a slim,
childish, elf of a girl blew down the
street, and a lad of tender years gave
pursuit and rescued the offensive
piece of headgear. He returned It,
trembling with the boldness of his
daring, to the owner, who would not
even lift her long lashes as she
thanked him faintly. I've 'always had
an overwhelming desire to find that
young lady and see for myself what
kind of eyes she possessed, that she
wasso unwilling to use them."
"And that was you I should never
have believed it" Jeannette laughed
a bit absently.
"And now that I have found the

The hostess had given the sign. As
they rose, she said, laughingly, "I sup
pose you two have decided to collabo
rate on some great work or other."
Wainwright questioned Jeannette
with steady eyes.
"Wq have, have we not?" he aBked.
Jeannette flashed a quick look Into
their frank depths. Her heart throbbed
a bit as she replied In a low voice, "I
guess perhaps."

Darnton had watched the little thiu
rising feather of s'inoko with appre
hensive surprise as he rode along
the river trail. For the minute he had
forgotten all about "Hemlocks," the
Umber and rock bungalow that bad
been closed for two years.
"Man come back," he said briefly
over one shoulder to his Shoshone
"No man, squaw," answered the In
dian. "Girl squaw."
"You have been up there?"
"Seo team go by."
He knew by the dropping of Lame
Bear's eyelids how uselosa it was to
get any details about girl or team.
So he had turned about, sent the
guide back to his own place and ridden
up toward "Hemlocks" alone.
She was washing when he arrived,
washing out dish towels on the table
under tho hemlocks.
She lifted her head as Bhe 'heard
his pony's tread.
"I'm Darnton, the forest ranger
around these parts," he announced. "I
saw your fire, and just rode up to be
sure. I knew that Mr. Martell was
not hero."
"Were you worried?" she asked,
smiling not exactly in a friendly way,
but ns if she found this official super
vision amusing. And no explanation
did she make. He went away without
finding out why she had come there, or
what connection she had with Martell.
Ho only knew that she was an artist
and her name was June Campbell.
That had been two months ago.
Hardly a day- had passed since that he
had not ridden within sight of "Hem
locks." Bruce Darnton knew before the first
month was up that all the happiness
of life lay up at "Hemlocks" for him,
and just as he was getting acquainted
fairly well, and she would ride with
him for hours through the forest
trails he loved, there had come Tawny
Phillips. Tawny had ridden many
trails. Darnton knew him as a young
California timber broker. Every once
In so often Tawney would ride through
the country, sizing up general pos
sibilities. Tawny was wealthy, buoyant, com
radely, and most undeniably hand
some. He found Lis way up to "Hem
locks" frequently. June liked him.
One day she took Lame Bear to task
for the way he had treated Tawny.
The Indian had come on an errand for
.Darnton, and Tawny had told him to
hnbble his pony for him as he slipped
from tho saddle. Instead Lame Bear
had turned and sauntereLaway.
"You were rude to my irlend, Lame
Bear," ehe said. "Why?"
"No friend," said Lame Bear stolid
ly. "He cut, burn, kill. He set fires
for revenge. Lame Bear know. He
want you for squaw. He think my
man no good, no get girl for squaw.
Het set fires for trouble."
"How do you know?" she asked
"Lame Bear see. You bring black
devil box. Take him pictures, yes?"
June saw what he meant. It seemed
unspeakable that this man who had
come to her for days, frankly wooing
her, should really choose so diabolical
a means of revenge.
Lame Bear kept his word. The next
day he came and told her to get her
pony and follow him. Miles they rode
over the narrow trails. Lame Bear
told her that Tawny started fires to
keep Darnton away, from "Hemlocks,"
and that he had boasted he would set
tle tho ranger If he dared to go near
the lodge.
All day they were gone, the girl and
the Indian. When she rode back,
wearied and heartsick, and yet ex
ultant, she lay awake hours, wishing
she might share tho fight of Bruce
Darnton against the creeping serpents
of flame set on his track by the other
She had meant to develop the films
and show them to Bruce the next day.
it was almost dawn when she saw the
great rich glow of orange overspread
lie sky to the west of her. Tawny had
made good his threat. She dressed and
waited her pony Hnddled for tho
daylight, but when tho first streaks
of light came, they were clouded over
by the mounting pillars of smoke, and
Tawny himself came at a dead gallop
towards her.
He told her that Darnton was dead,
killed ny a smashing tree trunk, as
he fought the fire. He told her the
only way to safety lay In flight with
him along the open trails away from
the Are, and when che stood her
ground, he laughed, and reached for
It was Lame Bear's bullet that
caught him. Sent by Darnton to pro
tect the girl, and assure her the Are
was being checked, he had watched
silently his chance, and paid back old
scores when Tawny lost his head.
And when, hours later, Bruce rode
up, blackened, bruised and lame, he
found the Indian in lone vigil beside
his prisoner, with June calmly de
veloping the negatives that told who
set the forest fires.
"We'll take him down to the sheriff
tomorrow," Bruce said "I'm glad to
get the goods on him this time. It
was mighty fine ot you to take all
that, trouble to help mo, Miss June. I
don't see why " He stopped just
there and met her eyes. They looked
rather tired aniLanxious. And an odd
thing happened. Without another
word, there in the shadowy living
room of the old timber lodge, he some
way found her In his arms,
"I'm going to otay here, Bruce," she
whispered, "and ride the trails with
'All the girls, when speaking of Allor

the term in its usual sense, for their
admiration of young Dukes was
boundless. What they had In mind

Bald it ceaBed talking. There was
sound philosophy in his method, but
tho average man has not the strength
of mind to follow It out he keeps up
a conversational twitter because he
has a horror of silence. It gets on
his nerves. Aller Dukes did not seem
to possess nny nerves. At any rate,
ho did not flutter an eyelash at whole
streaks of stillness. The odd part
of it was that this habit did not seem
to shut him off behind any remote
barrier ho had the faculty of making
himself more intimately one of the
party by just listening than did tho
others by reams of gabbler
Mle never by any chance gossiped
about himself.
Most people are so egotistical that
they think the public is feverishly in
terested in their trips to Europe, pro
jected or past, their new clothes at
tho tailor's or dressmaker's, their
servants' shortcomings and the money
they are making.
Aller Dukes seemed wrapped in im
penetrable modesty. Any information
you got out of hlrn relating to him
self had to be pried and blasted loose
and he clearly regarded the operation
with disfavor.
Naturally he was fascinating to
girls, because he gave them so much
to talk and wonder about. When he
took one of them to a party she had
all the sensations of starting on a
trip into remotest Africa, because
there always was the possibility of
making Aller Dukes talk.
Nobody has done it yet, but while
there is life there is hope. The effect
of Aller's silence was to make other
people talk, and resolve as they would
not to chatter and unfold their best
secrets to him, they always did.
When he began taking Ethel Awl
lng around more than 'all the other
girls excitement ran high.
"Suppose" said Ethel's best friend.
"Suppose, he should want to propose
to you he'd never be able to waste
words enough to lead up to It!
what's he going to do? A girl simply
has to be sort of courted!"
"I'm not worrying," said Ethel, and
tossed her head. "He's Just a good
friend and doesn't care a bit about
But It was observed that she
blushed when she said It.
Perhaps Ethel herself wondered as
had her best friend. She and Aller
got along famously together because
she could talk six miles an hour and
she always took such a vivid interest
in life that she had plenty to say. Not
that Aller maintained a sphinxlike si
lence when she considered the mat
ter It seemed that he always said
things to the point. Still.as her best
friend had pointed out, a girl simply
has to be courted.
And the young man had wasted no
time in pretty speeches.
Before she realized It, Ethel Awllng
was consumed with curiosity as to
whether Aller Dukes really liked her
a good deal and how he possibly could
convey the idea to her if he did like
Deep down in her heart she was
hoping that he did.
Several others had told Ethel that
they cared for her, and as she re
viewed the manner in which they had
done so none of the methods em
ployed appealed to her as at all at
tractive. To be sure, they had been
graceful enough, clever enough, artis
tic enough, and yet she had sent the
young men all away. How, she pain
fully wondered, could silent Aller
Dukes tell her of his admiration, sup
posing he should want to, so that It
would impress her? She disliked
very much the Idea of not being im
pressed sufficiently to say yes. By
which one may Judge that Ethel was
considerably in love with the silent
To her self she Insisted that she
did not care a bit.
Most unexpectedly one evening, just
as they were going down the steps
on their way to a party, not when
they were returning, with moonlight
and the rest of the conventional set
ting, Aller Dukes turned his head
toward Ethel a moment and then
said: "Will you marry me, Ethel?"
It took him exactly from the third
to the fifth step to say It. And Ethel,
after an Instant, heard herself saying
calmly from the sixth step to the
seventh: "Yes, Aller." And then
they were walking on the level side
walk. Some time later Ethel said re
proachfully: ''That was an awfully
funny way you proposed to me!"
Aller looked surprised. "I don't
see why," ho said. "I wanted to know
something and what was there to do
but ask you what I wanted to
"Anyhow, I'm satisfied!" Ethel told
