thoro sounded behind mo tho thud oi

laughter, accompanied by gay ex
change of words. I drew aside, lead
ing my horso Into a small thicket bo
side tho road to penult the ravnlcado
to pass. It was a group of perhaps a
dozen three or four Federal officers,
tho remainder ladles, whoso bright
dresses and smiling faci made a
most winsome sight. Thoy glanced

you, Captain Wnyne, you havo youth

heart throb to think of tho upbuilding
which awaits you men of tho South.
It Is through such nB you soldiers
trained by stern duty that theBO
desolated states aro destined to rise
nbovo the ashes of war Into a great
ness never before equaled. I feol
that now, In this suprome hour of sac

South aro to exhibit beforo tho world
a courage greater than that of tho

of it should mako you strong."
"It may Indeed bo so;' I can but be

your lips. I might oven Hnd courage

Sho laughed gently. "I n;i not a

loyal daughter of tho North; yet If
I so In3plro you by my mete ords,
surely It Is not so far to my homo
but you might Journey there to listen
to my furthor words of wisdom."
"I hnvo not forgotten tho permis

temptation not easily cast asldo. You
return North soon?"
"Within a week."
I hardly knew what prompted me

"Do you expect your husbnmTs re

Sho gave a quick start of surprise,
drawing In her breath as though sud

overspread her face. "My husband ?"
sho ejaculated In volco barely audi
ble, "my husband? Surely you can
not mean Major urennan?"
"But 1 certainly do," I said, won
dering what might be wrong. "Whom
else could I mean?"
"And you thought that.'" she asked
Incredulously "Why, how could you?"
"How should I ravo thought other
wise?" I exclaimed, my eyes eagerly
searching her downcast faco. "Whv,
Caton told mo It was so the night I
was beforo Sheridan; he conlhmed it
ngnln in couvorsntl less than an
hour ngo, Colgate, my Lieutenant,
who met you In a Baltimore hospital,
referred to him tho naiae way. If I
have been deceived through all these
months, surely everything and every
body conspired to that end you bote
tho unme name; you told mo plainly
you wero married; you woro a wedding-ring;
you resided whllo r.t camp
In his quarters; you called each oth
or Frnnk nnd Edith. From first to

by any ono to cnuso mo to doubt that
you wero his wlfo."
"I recall starting to explain nil this
lo you once," sho said, striving vainly
to nppcar at easo. "It was when wo

ing upon ua of Mr. nnd Mrs. Bungay.
Yot I supposed you knew, that you
would havo learned tho facts from

gether I told you I did not wholly un
derstand you. It Is no wonder, when
you thought that of mo."
"I nm going to tell you my story,
Cnptnin Wnyno. It is not a pleasnnt
Insk under theso circumstances, yot
ono I owo you as woll an mysolf. This
may prove our Inst meeting, and wo
must not part undor tho shadow of a
mistake, howover Innocently It may
hnvo orlglnntcd. I am tho only child
of Edwin Adams, n manufacturer, of
8tonlngton, Connecticut. My father
was also for several terms n membor
of Congress from that Stato. As tho
death of my mother occurrod when I
was but flvo years old, all my fathor's
lovo was lavished upon mo, and I
grow tip surrounded by every advnn
tngo which abundant means and high
social position could supply. During
all thoso earlier years my playmate
and most intlmato companion was
Charles Bronnan, a younger brother of
tho Major, and tho son of Judgo David
Bronnan of tho Stato Supremo Court.
As wo grow older his friendship for
mo ripened Into lovo, a feeling which I
found It Impossible to return. I liked
him greatly, valued him most highly,
continued his constant companion,
yot experienced no deslro for closor
relationship. My position was ren
dered tho more difficult as it had long
been tho dream of tho heads of both
houses that our two families, with
their contingent estates, should bo
thus united, and constant utglng tried
my decision severely. Nor would
Chnrlos Hrennan give up hopo. When
ho wns twenty and I barely seventeen
a most serious accident occurred a
tunaway In which Charles heroically
preserved my life, but himself re
ceived Injuries, from which death In
a short tlmo was Inevitable. In thoso
Inst llngetlng dayq of Buffeting, but
ono hope, ono nmbltlon, seemed to
possess his mind the desire to mako
me his wife, and leave mo the fortuno
which wits his through tho will of his
mother. I cannot explain to you, Cap
tain Wayne, tho strugglo I passed
through, seeking to do what was right
and boat; but flnnlly, moved by my
sympathy, eager to soothe hla final
hours of suffeting, and urged by my
father, I consented to gtatlfy his wish,
and a wero united In marriigo while
ho was on his deathbed. Two days
later ho passed away."
Sho paired, hor volco faltering, her
eyes moist with unshed tears. Scarce
knowing It, my hand sought hers,
where it rested against tho saddle.
"His hi other," sho paused slowly,
"now Major Urennnn, but at that tlmo
a prosperous banker In Hartford, a
man nearly double the age of Charles,
uas named as adminiptrator of tho
estate, to retain its man..gement until
I should attain tho ago of twenty ono.
Less than a year later in father also
died. Tho final settlement of his es
tate was llkewiso enti usted to Frank
Urennnn, nnd ho was made my guard
ian. Quito naturally I became a iesl
dent of tho Bronnan household, upon
tho Bamo standing as a daughter, be
ing legally a ward of my husband's
brother Major Brennnn's ngo, and
his Uioughtful kindness to me, won
my respect, and I gradually ramo to
look upon him air ost na an elder
brother, turning to him In every tlmo
of troublo for encouragement and
help. It was the necessity of our
business relation which fl-st com
pelled mo to como South and join
Major Btonnnn In cami , as he was
unable to obtain leavo of absence, i
was obliged to make the trip. Not
until that time, Captain Wayne In
deed, not until after our experlenco
at Mountain Vlow did I fully realize
that Major Brenunn looked upon mo
otherwise than as a guardian upon his
wnrd. Tho awakening period pained
mo greatly, especially as I was
obliged to disappoint him deeply; yet
I seek to retain his friendship, for my
memory of his long kindness must
ever abide. I am sure you will under
stand, and not consider mo unwoman
ly In thus making you n confidant."
"I can never bo sufficiently gtnte
ful that you have thus trusted me," I
said with an earnestness that caused
her to lower her questioning c- es. "It
has been a strange misunderstanding
between us, Mrs. Bronnan, but your
words have bt ought a new hope to
ono diahcaitcuod Confcdctiito soldier.
I must be content with hope, yet I am
rich compared with thousands of oth

what I dreamed myself nn hour ngo."
I hold out my hand. "There will como

"Yes; to take a frc ..old upon life,

WHAT IT IS
By Rev. William Evans, D. D.,
Director Bibls Couim of MooJr Bible White
TFVCT. All scripture Is given by in
spiration of God, and In profitable for
doctrlno, for reproof, for correction, for
Instruction in righteousness. 2 Tim. 3-16.
Tho Blblo is tho Dook of God and re
ligion. Thero aro other books, wo arc
told, that reveal
God to us besides
tho Blblo; e, g.,
tho book of na
ture, and tho book
of providence. Wo
admit that nature
reveals God to us.
That tho heavens
declare tho glory
of God, nnd tho
hla handiwork, wo
do not for a mo
ment deny. Na
ture is vocal with
t hc o 1 o g y. Nor
would we think of contradicting the
statement that God manifests himself
tlnough history nnd providence. Vic
tor Hugo said' "Waterloo was God."
By that he meant that God showod his
hand in that great war and turned the
stream of civilization into another
channel. The history of all nations is
abundantly repleto with marked inter
ferences of God. Promotion comoth
neither from tho east nor from tho
west. It is God who setteth up one
nation, and putteth down another.
Tho knowledge of God that comes
to us from these sources, however, is
not sufficient to fully satlafy tho hu
man heart. Nature telle us of God,
but does not adequately describe him
to us. Wc might infer from tho di
vine manifestations in history and
providence that God is a great force
of power, but such a definition of God
by no means satisfies humanity. We
jieed some other and deeper vision of
God. We need to know something
about his person, nature and attrl
hutes; his relations with his creatures;
what things aro pleasing and what dis
pleasing to him; what are his ethical,
moral and spiritual standards. To
theso questions not nature, nor his
tory, nor yet providence affords an
answer. Nature may show the head
and wisdom of God, nnd providence
nnd history the hand and power of
God, but ve need a revelation such as
we havo in tho Bible to leveal to ua
the heart and the grace of our God.
Sometimes tho Uible la compared
"with other sacred books Bibles oi
other icligions; tho Koran, tin Vedas,
etc. There can be no real comparison.
The Biblo is not to bo put on the same
plane as these books. None of them
claims for itself what the Blblo claims
for itself; nor did any one of their au
thors claim for himself what Jesus
Christ, and the inspired writers of the
Bible claim for themselves. The
Christian must be very careful in the
matter of comparing his Biblo with
other sacred books. Such comparison
is attended with grave danger. There
is practically no difference, so far as
the disastrous effects of such compari
sons are concerned, whether you drag
the Blblo down to the level of these
other books, or lift these other books
up to tho level of the Bible. The effect
Is the same; you rob the Ulblo of Its
unique character and authority. Let
us be careful in this matter.
The Bible is not only tho book of
God, it is also the book from God. At
jleast this is tho way in which it gives
its own account of its origin: "All
Scripture is gien by inspiration of
God," that is to say, is "God
breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16). Again,
in 2 Peter 1:20-21, wo read: "Knowing
.this first, that no prophecy of the
Scripture is of any privnte lntcipreta
tlon (or origin, for it seems clear that
it is to tho source rather than to the
exposition of tho Scripture that ref
erence Is here made). For tho
prophecy enmo not in old time by the
will of man; but holy men of God
spake as they were moved by tho Holy
Ghost." Hero are somo very clear and
definite statements concerning the
sourco of the Scripluio. It la this
"God-breathed" element that differen
tiates this book from all other writings
The Biblo is quite often referred to
nowadays as splendid "literature."
Well, the Biblo is that, but it is more
than that It is Scripture. Literature
is the letter; Scripture is tho letter
imbreathed by the holy spirit. JuBt as
in the creation of man wo leain that
man became a living soul when that
frnmo of dust, ns It lay on tho ground,
became inbreathed by the spirit of
life from God. Man is dust Inbreathed
by Deity; and if you tnko the spirit
of life from mnn, ho returns to dust.
So Is it with the Bible; it is the let
ter, but it is the letter inbreathed by
God's spirit that makes that letter
Scripture. And when you rob the Bible
of its inspiration you have nothing but
moro literature left you havo no
Tho messngo of tho Ulblo is a religi
ous message. Its aim nnd purpose is
to bring man, who JiaB been estranged
from God by reason of sin, back to the
God from whom he has been estranged.
Tho Scriptures, which nro given by in
spiration of God, are for tho man of
God, that ho may bo instructed in
righteousness; mark you, in righteous
ness, not In science, or art, or poetry,
or history, important as those things
are In themselves.
