CHAPTER IV. Continued.
The Interior of tho safe was re
vealed In a shape llttlo different from
that of tho ordinary household strong
box. There wero seveinl account
book3, ledgers and the llko, together
with somo packages of docketed bill3,
in the pigeon holes. Tho cash box,
itaelf a safe within a safe, showed a
blank face broken by a small combi
nation dial. Dehlnd this, la a so
eieted compartment, tho Maltland heir
looms languished, half foi gotten of
their heedless owner.
Tho cash box combination offered
loss illlllculty than had the miter dial.
Maltland had it open In a twinkling.
Then, brazenly lifting out tho Inner

Mills hand Into tho aperture thus dis
closed nml pressed the spring, re
leasing the panel nt tho back. It dis
appeared as though by witchcraft,
and tho splash of light from tho bull's
eye discovered a canvas bag squatting
humbly In tho secret compartment: a
fat llttlo canvas bag, considerably soiled
from much handling, such as Is used
by hanks for coin, a sturdy, matter-of-fact,
evory-day sort of canvas bag,
with nothing about it of hauteur, no
air of BelMinportancu or ostentution,
to betray tho fact that It was the re
coptaclo of a small fortune.
At Maltland's ear. Incredulous:
"How did you guess?" sho breathed.
Ho took thought and breath, both
briefly, and prevaricated shamelossly:
"Bribed tho head clerk of the ,'safo
.manufacturer who built this."
Rising, ho passed over to tho centor
table, tho girl following. "Steady with
'the light," ho whlspored: and loosed
the string around the mouth of tho
bag, pouring Its contents, a gllstonlng,
priceless, flaming, iritllscent troasuro
lorde, upon tho table.

wonder of it. Tho jowels seemed to
illl tho room with a Hashing, umaziug,
coruscant glamour, rainbow-like. His
breath camo hot and fa3t as ho gazed
upon tho trove; a queen's ramsom, a
fortuno Incalculable even to Its owner.
As for tho girl, ho thought that the
wonder of It must have struck her
dumb. Not a Sound catno' from the

Then, abruptly, the sun went out;
at least, such was the effect; tho light
of tho hand lamp vanished utterly,
leaving n partly-colored blur swim
ming ugalmst the impenetrable black
ness, befoio his eyes.
Ills lips opened: but a .small hand
fell firmly upon bis own. and a tiny,
tremulous whisper shillled in his car.
"Hush ah, hush!"
"Steady . . . somo one coming.
. . . the jewels."
He heard tho dull musical clash of
them as her 'hands' swept them bock
Into tho bag. and a cold, sickening fear
rendered him almost faint with the
sonsV of trust misplaced, illusion re
solved Into brutal realities. His lingers
closed convulsively about her wrists;
hut sho held passive.
"Ah, but I might have oxpectod
that!" came her reproachful whisper.
"Take them, then, my my partner
that was." Her tone cut llko n knife,
nntl the touch of the canvas bag, as
she forced It Into his hands, was hate
ful to him.
"Forgive mo" he began.
For a space lie obeyed, the silence
at first seeming tremendous; then,
faint but distinct, be heard the tinkle
nntl slide of the brazen rings support
lng tho smoking room portiere.
His hand sought tho girl's; she had
not moved, and the cool, firm pressure
of her fingers steadied him. Ho
"Quick!" he told her In the least or
whispers. "Leave by the window you

There was no time to romonstrate

in his m(nd was that at all costs the

and strength. Maltland cared little j
for his ovll glances; he was busy. The
burglar's ankles were next bound to-

about the man's neck and the nearest
support entirely eliminated him as a
possible factoi In subsequent events.

Maltland warned him curtly, "are

they'll tighten and strangle you. Un

herent sound with Ills' swollen tongue.
At which Maltland frowned, smitten
thoughtful with a new consideration.
"You mustn't talk, you know," he
mused half aloud; and, whipping forth
a handkorchlof, gagged Mr. Anlsty.
After which, breathing hard and in a
maze of perplexity, lie got to his feet,

emergency, had nppilsed him oC tiie

mansion the sounds of hurrying foot
wore, distinctly audible, as, presently,
were tho heavy, excited voices of men
and the more shrill and f lightened
cries of women.
Heedless of her displeasure, Malt

Subject: What Faith Has Uono
for Othots and Can Do for Us.
What Faith Is.- Vs. I -it How does
the writer tlotlne ralth? "Faith is tho
substance of things hoped for, the evi
dence of things not seen." Faith Is
not hope, but underlies hope and ron
dels hope conlldont. Faith is not tho
vision of mysteries, but that proof of
thorn in heart and life which assures
us of them without any sight of them.
How does the writer lllustrnte this
faith? "Hy It the elders (not nil men
of nucicut time, hut those of special
renown called 'elders') obtained a
good report" (It. V, "bad witness
borne to them," I e., In the Scripture)
This orse sums up tho long and
splendid catalogue that follows.
What Is the first example of faith?
That of Abel the righteous (so called
throe times out of the four mnntlons
of him In the New Testament; see
Matt, lilt :,.'.; John :!:ll!). His faith
in Cod led to obedience, and thus ho
offered the kind of sacrifice which
Cod npproved and accepted, perhaps
by tire from hoavon.
What Is tho second example of
faith? The, patriarch Uuoch, who
"walked whUt (lod" (tho Soptuaplnt.
used here, has It ''was well pleasing to
dod ); "and ho was not; for (lod took
hlui," This proves Ma, fulfil, for no.
one can go to Cod without faith In
What Is tho third example of fnlth?
Noah, whoso faith in Ood'a warnings
of the coirilug deluge led hint to build
tho ark.' "Noah Is the llrst to re
ceive In Scripture the name 'righteous'
(Cen. (V:D; see also IC.ek. 11.14, 20;
I'et, 2:5). This 'rlfthtoousuosa is
looked on as an Inheritance, received
by all who manifest the faith." -FA-llcott.
What Is the fourth example of
faith? The glorious example of
"faithful' falthtlllcd Abraham," who
proved his faith by leaving his native
laud, bis friends, his home, at the com
mand of Cod, nntl going ho knew not
whither, living In tents In the prom
ised laud, nud not even owning a foot
of it except a place to bury his dead
How docs the writer sum up tho

Tho preservation of Mosos by his
parents; tho cholco made by Moses
when he slow tho Kgyptlnn (Kx. 2; II,

of the royal court and "the treasures
of Kgypt," and an assumption of tho
cause nf tho enslaved nation of "the
reproach of Christ;" tho forsaking of
Kgypt by Moses; tho celebration of
the first pnssovor; tho passage of tho
