He seemed to hesitate, and was vis ibly upset. “Are we really nearing the end of the mybtery?” he wanted to know. “I’ve spent so much time trying to solve it—l’ve suffered agonies at not being able to avenge Elisabeth! . . . Can we really be going to learn the truth about her death ?*’ *Tve discovered it,” asserted Raoul convincingly. “And 1 fancy 1 can clear up the matter of the lost jewels as well. . .

This was a bitter moment for Idm after all the years he had vainly tried to solve the mys tery, and now to have to bow to the superior knowledge of his odious rival! He both hoped for ami dreaded the success that would mean his own humiliation. Jean d’Erlemont once again trod the same ground he had traversed with Elisabeth Hornaln on that day 15 years ago. Antonine followed close behind him, while Raoul and Gor geret brought up the rear. By far the calmest of them all was Raoul. He liked to watch the charm ing girl who walked In front of him. and noticed certain details that dis tinguished her from Clara: Anto nina’s carriage was less supple and less graceful, but more natural and unstudied: What it lacked In sinu ous grace It gained in general har mony. And what he noticed in hsr bear ing he knew he would also find in her whole manner and even In her features seen close to. Twice, when the path was impeded by under growth, Raoul caught up with.

The Three Years’ Ministry Matthew passes immediately from aDreast, nut they dia not speak. The marquis ascended the steps leading from the garden up to the first terrace, that led right and left to the laurel walk, and was dotted here and there with antique urns standing on their time-worn pedes tals overgrown with moss. He turned left to reach the steep paths and steps that wound in and out of the ruins. Raoul stopped him. “Is this the exact spot where you and Elisabelh Hornain stopped that day?” The marquis nodded. “Show me exactly." “Here, Just where 1 stand now." "Could they see you from the cha teau “No. The shrubs have thinned out now through lack of bping properly tended, but at that time they were quite impenetrable." "So this is the exact spot where Elisabeth Hornain stood watching you when you turned round at the end of the laurel walk to look back at her?” “It is." “Can you swear to ft?" "Certainly. I can still picture her as she stood there that day. leaning against this old pedestal, the curtain of greenery falling all around her. 1 can see it clearly—l have forgotten nothing!” “And as you returned to the gar den. did you turn round a recond time?” “Yes. to see her when she should appear out of the avenue.” .. “Ann did you see her?” “Not immediately, but very soon.” “But normally you ought to have soph her at once? She ought to have come out of the avenue by then?" “Why, yes. I suppose so.” said the marquis. Raoql laughed softly to himself. “Why are you laughing?” de manded the marquis. And Antonine leaned forward, tense with anxiety. “I’m laughing because the more complicated a problem Is, the more complicated everyone Imagines its solution must be. We never look for a simple explanation, but always pursue the wild and extraordinary. When you came here on your period ical visits, what were you looking for? The jewels?” “No, for 1 knew they had been stolen. I was trying to find some clue that might help to lead me to the murderer.” “And it never by any chance oc curred to you that the jewels might not have been stolen?” “Never!” “And it never occurred to Gorgeret or the notice either! FunßV how Matthew passes immediately from ILLUSTRATED SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON Scripture—Matt. 4:12-25 ■ - ■ ...... Ciipvi'urlit IS'U la Central V-snriiitiim. In? Two other brothers, James and John were in a boat with their father mending their nets. These he also invited to be his followers and they left their father and became disciples of Jesus. the temptation. of Jesus to his Gali lean ministry. But let us not over look the fact that between these two there were a number of months inter vening during which the real t»egin ntng’s of Jesus public ministry took place not in Galilee, but in. Judaea, the record of which we have given us on ly by John in John 1:19 to 4:42, all of which took place between verses 11 and 12 of Matthew’s fourth chapter or between opr lessons of last Sunday and t.i s Supday. Thus we pass from "the year of obscurity," spent largely in Judaea, to "the year of popularity’’ spe'nt largely in Galilee-, and this in turn 1 will give way to “the year of opposition,” spent largely in Pera and Judaea. All this should be held in perspective as we read tills first verse of today’s lesson (4:12), "Now when he heard that John was delivered up, he withdrew into Galilee and leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Cap ernaum,” etc. The Galilean Ministry Began So this meeting of Jesus with the Galilean fishermen when Jesus calls them to leave their nets and follow him is not their first meeting with the master. They had met him some months before when they had been drawn out into the wilderness to hear John the Baptist and had now had these months to meditate upon what they had then seen and heard from Jesus of Nazareth. As a re sult lal that is needed now as he finds them casting their nets into the sea, is his gracious invitation: "Come ye after me, and I will make you fishers of men,” and, "they straightway left their nets, and followed him.” Thus Peter and Andrew become disciples as Jesus. A bit later he finds another pair of brothers, James and John “in tho boat with Zobedee, their father, mending their nets; and he called them, and they straightway left the boat and their father and followed (him.” > “Unknown and Yet Well Known” These were not supermen whom Jesus otok from their slimy nets and ill smelling boats and fish markets to. remake the world. The explana tion is to be found in the Master rather than in the men. He said to them, "Follow me and I will make you,” and so he did! They were lit erally remade into new creations as they followed him and learned of him people never will ask themselves the right question!" “The very elementary one you have obliged me to ask myself: Since Elisabeth Hornain preferred to sing without her jewels, did she not hido them somewhere?” “Impossible! No one would hide valuable jewels like that out of doors, where anyone passing might take them." “But who would be passing? You know perfectly well, just as she knew, that everyone was gathered outside the chateau to hear her sing." “So you think she might have hid den the Jewels somewhere?" “Tea Intending to retrieve them when she came down from the ruins after singing." “But when she was killed, when we all rushed to her, surely we should have found them?” “Not necessarily ... If she had hidden them somewhere where they were Invisible.” , “But where?” “In this old urn, for Instance, - which was just beside her. and filled with growing plants. She had only to stand on tiptoe, stretch up, and let the jewels fall inside on the earth at the bottom. A very normal thing to do—the urn furnished a temporary cache for the jewels, one that only fate and human stupidity rendered so final.” “What do you mean by final?” “Why, the plants that grew in th« urn have withered away, their leaves rotted until a layer of vegetable mould has covered up the secret, rendering it the safest possible hid ing place." Both d’Erlemont and Antonine re mained silent, much impressed by his calm assurance. Then the mar quis spoke: “You seem very positive.” “That’s because I’m sure of what I say—anyway, it’s easy enough for yon to verify my words." - The marquis hesitated for a mo ment. He had grown very pale. Then he stood on tiptoe, and stretch ing up, thrust a hand inside the urn, searching the sodden mould that time had deposited at the bottom of it. At last he murmured In a trem bling voice: “Yes . . . they’re here ... I can feel the necklaces. .. . Oh. God, when I think that abe once wore these things!" * .. „ His emotion eraa so great that he was scarcely able to go on with hie search. One by one he drew forth the necklaces.
