"You don't," he said whimsically,
when she finally stopped, "you don't,
by any chance, know 'The Maiden's

Sho laughed. This piece was a
standing joke at school.

"Heaven forfend!'' he murmured,

All the while the letter burned
against her heart, and the smile on
her face and the gayety on her tongue
were forced. "Confide In no one," she
repeated mentally, "or you seal my .
death warrant."
"Why do you shake your head like

fluttered wildly. "I was not conscious

and he sighed deeply If silently.
At a quarter to eight Florence, being
alone for a minute, set Are to a veil
and stuffed It down the register.
"Jones," she called excitedly, "I
smell something burning!"
Jones dashed into the room, sniffed,
and dashed out again, heading for the
cellar door. His first thought was
naturally that the devils incarnate had
set fire to the house. When he re
turned, having, of course, discovered
no fire, he found Florence gone. He
rushed Into the hall. Her hat was
mlesing. He made for the hall door

rived she was too highly keyed to
take note of lte sordldness. She was
rather out of breath when she reached
the door of the third flat. She knocked
timidly. The door was Instantly
opened by a man who woro a black
mask. She would have turned then,
and there and flown but for the swift
picture she bad of a well-dressed man
at a table. He lay with his head upon
his arms,
"Father!" she whispered.
The man raised his careworn face,
so very well done that only the closest
scrutiny would have betrayed the
paBte pt the theater. He arose and
staggered toward, her with out;
Btrotchedarms. But the moment thjy,
closed about her Florence experienced
a peculiar shiver.
"My child 1" murmured the broken
man. "They caught me when I was
about to come to you. I have given
up the fight." A sob choked him. '
What was It? wondered the child, '
her heart burning with the misery of
the thought that she was sad Instead
of glad. Over his shoulder she sent
a glance about the room. There was
a sofa, a table, some chairs and an
enormous clock, the face of which was
dented and the hands hopelessly tan-'
gled. Why, at such a moment, she
should note such details disturbed
her. Then she chanced to look into
the cracked mirror. In It she saw I
several faces, all masked. These men '
were peering at her through the halt
closed door behind her. '
"You must return home and bring
me the money," went on the wretch
who dared to perpetrate such a mock

me and death."
Then sho knew! The insistent daily
warnings came home to her. She un
derstood now. She had deliberately
walked Into the spider's net. But in
etead of terror an extraordinary calm
fell upon her.
"Very well, father, I will go and
get It." Gently she released herself
from those horrible arms. I
"Watt, my child, till I see if they '
will let you go. They may wish to

When he was gone sho tried the
doors. They were locked. Then she

READING LESSON-John 3:14-21.
GOLDEN TEXT I come quickly: hold
fast that which thou hast, that no one
take thy crown. Itev. 3:11.
The lessons of the first quarter of
this year's cycle chiefly present Jesus
as the great teacher. Those of the
second quarter principally concern the
aspect of his savlorhood, whereas dur
ing this present quarter we see him
mainly as the great Judge. These les
sons have dealt with matters which
occurred during the last months, wo
may almost say the last weeks, of his
life. Iiuring that "year of opposition"
he Is met with the most determined
hostility and persecution. Neverthe
less he proceeds against It all with
calm assurance, In strict Justice and
without a shadow of faltering.
This reading lesson contains the
most celebrated and familiar verse in
the bible. In It wo see:
A mlRhty God "For God" x
A mighty motive "So loved"
A mighty scope "The world"
A mighty sacrifice "So gave His only be
gotten Son"
A mighty escape "Not perish"
A mighty gift "Eternal life."
We here see Jesus set forth In grace
and while It does not declare that ho
came to judge, yet, in the passage are
set forth those principles upon which
he is constantly the Judge, and where
by he will eventually act In the last
and final Judgment.
God's Right
In the first lesson, that of the labor
ers, Jesus taught his disciples the sov
ereignty of God. God has a right to
do as seemeth best to himself. In this
parable we see the true motive In serV'
Ice, viz., fidelity and not for hope of
reward. Jesus thus prepared the way
for his denunciation and Judgment, of
the rulers.
Lesson two, which deals with the
self-seeking disciples and the self-sac
riflclng Savior, is intended to teach
that there is but one path to true and
lasting greatness, and that is the path
of sacrifice and service.
The story of Bartlmaeus, lesson
three, is a beautiful and touching ex
hibition of his activity of mercy even
in the midst of the approaching Judg
ment. In the fourth lesson Is presented the
parable of the pounds and the talents.
Both are spoken to the disciples and
both deal with their responsibilities to
himself in the coming days. Our eter
nal reward depends upon our acts and
attitudes in the life that now is.
Lesson five presents Jesus as the
Messiah prophesied of in the Old Tes
tament. It deals with the story of hU
coming Into Jerusalem. Entering thus
in such a manner demands our atten-
I tton for It foreshadows the time of his
judicial activity with reference to the
people and the nation.
The next five lessons may be said
to deal with this ministry of judgment.
In lesson six we see some of the
preparatory signs and teaching. Tho
blasting of the fig tree and his cleans
ing of the house of God are both sym
bolical. Lesson seven teaches us that if wo
fall to be faithful in tho kingdom
which has been entrusted to us it will
certainly be taken from us.
Lesson eight presents the parable of
the marriage feast in which Jesus un
folds the plan of God's invitation and
its human rejection in three stages.
God's Kinship.
The ninth lesson Is a political in
quiry which our Lord answered by
setting forth all of the important stato
relationships according to the funda
mental fact of tho kingship of God.
"Bender unto Caesr the things that
are Caesar's, and unto God the things
that be God's." No other answer of
his better reveals the infinite wisdom,
skill and tact of our Lord.
In lesson eleven, the parable of the
virgins, we are taught that the Lord
Jesus Is coming again and we must
watch and be ready against that Immi
nent event. This lesson also suggests
i tne responsibilities of his people dur-
lng his absence.
The twelfth lesson is a prediction of
the judgment of the nations and re
veals the way by which he is to begin
the administration which will ensue
when that kingdom is established.
There 1b a kingdom prepared from the
foundation of the world for the right
eous and a punishment prepared for
tho devil and those who willfully
choose to do his will. Those who cast
their lot with his must go with htm
to spend eternity. They themselves
sit in judgment upon themselveB, judge
themselves not worthy.
The chief value of these lessons dur
ing this quarter 1b In the revelation
which they give us of the fact that
when our Lord made that last journey
to Jerusalem It was not to the death
of a victim, one who wqb mastered by
circumstances, who could not escape;
but as a king. As he marched along
that pathway "setting his face stead
fastly," ho perfectly understood, and
resolutely faced a passion by means
of which he 'was accomplishing the
purposes of God and beyond the dark,
ness of which he saw the brightness of
ultimate victory and glory for man-
