The I.lndgrcus took up their residence on an upper fioor of tho church last No vember, and the presenco of tho 'ghosts" was revealed to Mr. LIndgren the first night he slept there. " 'lie not afraid." ho assured me This building was once a dance hall, and it was here that I wasted a for tune which had been left to me by my father, who was an Italian noble man. I killed a man in this very room. Yes. 1 smbbed him In the back, I stole tho money to buy rum, and her 1 am a physical wreck.' "Early the next night." ho said, "as tho old man approached tho altnr I fixed my camera In position and gavo the picture a long exposure. Mrs. LIndgren was- with mo and we went directly to our apartment nnd devel oped tho picture. Only the whlto out lines of the man's face, head and board were shown in tho photograph, but by using a pencil on one of the negatives. I succeeded In drawing an excellent likeness of the mysterious figure."

The voyage of lire Illustrated by Paul's voyage toward Rome. 1. Tho Voyago on n Peaceful Sen. From Cesarea to Crete. Vs. Mil. Tho ships. After It was determined to send Paul to Rome under military escort, the first thing was to find a ship. There was probably very little direct commerce between Cesarea and Home, and hence they embarked In a trading vessel which coasted north ward along the shores of Palestine to Sldon nnd around tho eastern point of Cyprus, past Clllcla and Tarsus, and part of Pamphylla to Myra In Lycla, near the southwest angle of Asia Minor. The second ship was a large Kgyp Man merchantman loaded with grain from Alexandria. The ship's company Included Paul and other prlaoners, Luke, who writes ' the account (note the "we" In the story); Arlatarchus, an old friend of Paul who was one of tho comniltteo thnt accompanied Paul to Jerusalem with tho collection for the poor (Acts 20:4); Copt. Julius, with ti guard of soldiers from tho Augustan band, be sides wo know not how many other .passengers, and the crew. The Peaceful Voyage. They sailed westward. It took them several days ,'to reach the port Cnldus on a penln sula at tho extreme touthwest point of Asia Minor, although tho distance 1 only 130 miles. The sailing was still dllllcult, and they put Into n harbor called Fait Havens on tho southern coast of Crete. Hero they walnted for pleas anter weather. Hut It was late In tho searon, and rough, stormy weather must be expected to prevail. Paul ad vised them to remain at Fair Ha vens till spring opened. Paul's advice was good, but It Is not strange that experienced seamen should not regard very highly tho opinion or a Fcholarly landsman. 'J. Storm Tossed on a Wintry Sea. Vs. M-HG. "'There arose against It" (v. 11), the ship, "a tempestuous wind," typlionle, tempestuous, Uko a whirlwind; a hurricane, a typhoon, a oyclono. 15. "When tho ship was caught.' A very strong expression, Implying that the wind seized hold or tho ship, as It were, and whirled her out or tier course. "Wo let her drive," 11. V., "wo gavo wny to It, and were driven" be fore the wind. IS. "The next day they," the sail ors, "lightened tho ship." Tho Im perfect denotes that they began to lighten the ship, set about it by throwing out foiiio of tho cargo, not the precious wheat which was thrown overboard later (v. 3S). 19. "Cast out with our own hands," that Is, of tho passengers as well ns of tho crow, "the tackling," "tho fur niture of the ship, Its fittings nnd equipment, anything movable lying on tho deck, upon which the passen gers could lay their hands, such as ta bles, beds, chests, and tho like." 20. "When neither sun nor stars . appenred." Wo have to re member that heforo tho Invention of the compass the sun and stars were tho only guides of snltors who wero out or sight or land. "All hope . . . was thqn," nt last, henceforth, "ta ken away." Tho Vision of Cheer. Now Paul comes to tho front, tho only ono in tho. wholo ship who could bring a messngo of hope. Tho reason for his assurance follows. An angel camo to him with a messngo from God, as Jesus had appeared to his disciples In tho tempest-tossed boat on tho Sea of (itilllee. Tho message was that ho would bo saved because ho (v. 21) "must bo brought before Caesar," as God had promised him beforo (Acts 23:11). Paul's safety was as sure as God's promise. Tho promlso hnd been ob scured boforo this, but It had shono out again through rills in the clouds. "God hath given thee all thorn that sail with thoo." Doubtless Paul prayed earnestly Tor the safety of those who wero In tho ship with him; and their lives wore granted in an swer to his prayers. Tho good man Is never selfish even In his prayers. Tho Port to Which Wo Should Sail. A statesman declares that "Tho llrst requisite of ono who would have a successful llfo, as or tho pilot or a ship, Is a knowledge of Its goal. No helmsmnn nowever skilled In handling a wheel or experienced In seamanship would be trusted to guide a vessel unless ho know and could specify In which direction It should go. A knowledgo of the gonl of nations is tho flrBt essential of statesmanship," and also of manhood and womanhood. Chicken, Deviled. Singe nnd preparo tho chickens as for boiling.

Tho woman pnusod. breathless, at tho entrance of tho familiar oltlce building. Three years? It seemed either Psterday--or an eternity! Poising herself determinedly, she passed on through the lobby and touched the clouitor bell. Her face wns very white now, In contrast to Its accustomed warm pink, and the set expression about the lips Imparted to It tho look, rather of IW than '.!!. In less limit two minutes she found herself seated in the little box like nntoroom to wait her turn. Nothing was changed except, perhaps, a trllle or bo In the furnishings- new things duplicating an far as possible the old. The clock, the book cases, the picture'! were the same. Looking at them watt like opening au old wound, and she kept her eyes resolutely on the hands crossed In her lap. Finally tin- door at her left opened nnd a htiKgard-faeed man emerged, lie picked up his hat from the table In tho center of the room and passed out The doctor glancitl toward th woman and nodded; the next Instant, tholr eyes locked. He pronounced her nnmo In a fotmal tone, and she rose automatleall and went Into his pri vate office. Dr. Drury pulled up a chair and mo tioned her to ho seated. Without a word she sank down, pull ing norvously at her glove-fingers. "And what can I do for you today, Mrs. Pel'ltun?" Ills Inflection wns courteous, professional, to a degree. "It's tho some old thing Jack," she said, with a llttlo Ineaught breath. Her eyes evaded his keen gaze. The doctor's browB went up the bar est trifle. He looked at her with a puzzled Interrogation. "Pardon me, but with hundreds of patients coming and going continually " "You haw-rorgolton!" Tho tone brcntheil Btibtlo reproach. Dr. Drury cleared his throat to hide his annoyance. He turned uway ffllliii U wit In the Tragic Abandon of Despair. briefly, and drew down tho dark green shado over tho open window. "Neu rasthenia?" ho questioned meditative ly. The woman gave a little sigh and laid her hand ovor hor heart with an expresslvo gesture. "Too much coffee, eh?" "I never touch It." She bit her lip hard, an Incipient frown drawing hor blnck brows closer together. "Go west away from this enervat ing climate." "1'vo been west east north ev erywhere, only to como hack again and ngain. 1 can't stay away Hut Is tho thing." Sho dashed tho mist from her eyes with a furtive forellngor. Dr. Drury regarded his patient with quizzical gazo. "I'm afraid, Mrs. Pol ham," ho remarked presently, "that you havo allowed yourself to bocomo morbid. Havo you tried occupa Hon?" Sho laughed softly. "Thoro's noth ing I haven't tried, nothing". I I'm starving!" she broke out In sudden passion, "can't you look at mo and seo that?" Sho covered her face with her hands and drew long, spasmodic breaths. "Doubtless you need a tonic, my dear mndam," and ho began scribbling hastily across a prescription blank. Tho woman wntched him in silence, her facoleplctlng n vuriety, of strange, panoramic emotions. Her next "words wero calculated to precipitate a crisis. "There's no use boating about th" bush any longer, Jnck. You already know wjiat's tho matter with mo don't yoh? And notwithstanding your simulated Indlffcronco, I can seo yon romomber. You can you look Into my eyes, John Drury and deny that you still lovo mo?" Sho had risen, nnd was stnndlng very close to him, hor pink, palpitant check Jtst grazlug tha rough bluck of hls'coatalcovo. -1 v Very palntnklngly, nnd without t word, Dr. Drury laid aside his tablet and pencil and shrugged. "Don't be u fool, Dolly." His tone wns admirably modulated, but tho barely perceptible twitching of his up per lip revealed a transit nt weakness to his companion. She laid a trembling row of finger tips on his arm Ho remained Ita lian able, and she caught his hand In her hot palms, crushing It convulsive ly. "Jack!" The word was half whisper, halfcaifMH. lie shook off her lingers brutally. "1 thought wo hail settled nil this, yearn ago. Didn't I say enough then? or are wo to repeat the scene?" III.! eyes searched her shrinking face mer cilessly. Presen'ly sho began to speak again, In a low, broken voice. "I, too, thought tint It was over then," she said, "b;t It could"! bo, dear. I've found that out. I cannot forget. God alone will ever know what those three years wero to mo Hell Itself can hold no greater tor tures" "Stop!" Ho turned blazing eyes up on (ho plendlng woman; his face flamed with dull crimson. Hut even as sho looked up, a softer light mndu Its transient passage aerotw his fea tures and his eyes fell away from hers. Her hands dropped listlessly to hor Hides, nnd her slender body shook from hend to foot. Tho clock on tho mantel ticked audi bly. A minute passed, two three. At last tho woman lifted her eyes. The doctor stood with folded arms, his gazo on tho floor. Without look ing up ho said: "Several patients aro waiting for mo. We do no good by prolonging this Intcrvlow. Good after noon." Ho started toward tho door, but tho woman Interrupted him with a llttlo low cry of pain. "Jnck Jack!" tho word broke hoarsely from her whlto lips, "you can not mean thnt this Is the end? that that O my God!" sho crumpl. l down on the floor and flung her nrn.M about his knees In the tragic abandon or despair. Au Instant the man stood like stone, then suddenly his powerlul frame shook under a torrent of emotion, and he lifted her In his arms, staining her to him in a passionate embrace, llhi lips swept her hair, her eyes, hr mouth with burning kisses. At last he released her, whlto and trembling and she staggered against tho wall for support. When their oyes met finally, all tb old slavish devotion hnd como ban to tho man's. "Wo can't stny on here,' ho said huskily, "I I'm married now you know. In n wool: I can got uy affairs Into shape, and wo can go away anywhere you say." Tho woman contomplntcd him a sec ond In bnilled Bllonco. Then swiftly like n fork or lightning, rago and dis appointment flashed athwart hor quiv ering face. 'You fool!" sho Blnieked, "when 1 was so near It, to bo defeated nt hint. I hate hate hato you, do you under stand? Do you think artcr that day thrco years ago I could over think of ou again except to desplso? "Shall I tell you why I camo here today?" sho hurried on, gaspingly, ' It wns becauso I heard that you had grown famous, grown to bo u great mnn.

Tho man stood watching hor stup idly. Ills tongue moved, but mado no sound. He put out his hand blindly; It fell limp nt his side. "Dolly!" Ills lips framed tho word at length In a duM monotouo; his eyes Bought mutoly to kludlo some an swering spark in hora.
