The one is from the account or the Journey or Israel through the trackless wilderness; the second, Jesus spoke centuries later, as he was present at the feast or tabernacles in Jerusalem. The first verse describes the customary way In olden times, or leading largo bodies or men on the march, whether caravans or armies. A tail pole was erected at the head of the marching column, on which was hung a basket or fire. The glare of the Are was visible from every part or the camp at night, and In the daytime the column or pillar or smoke guided the movements or the host. The only difference in tho case or the Israelites was that the Lord was in the fire, and that he controlled and guided the movements of the people. In the time of Jesus the Jews were wont to commemorate at the feast of the tabernncles, the time when they were wanderers In the desert, and God made provision for their sustenance and safety TJey lit largo lamps or torches around the temple to symbolize the pillar of Are, and then gave themselves up to dancing and revelry. Aa Jesus stood In the temple area and looked over the people, he saw that they needed guidance even more than they did In the desert, and that they needed light now Just as much as they needed the pillar of Are of old. These lights about the temple were merely reminders of past mercy, and possibly many of the people bad even forgotten their significance; but here was he, tho Guide of all lives. Here was he, the Light or all ages. So he speaks, T am the Light of the world." These words come down to us out or the old Hebrew tomple, and they pierce tho center or our modern life. "I am the "Light or tho world." When the sun rose this morning, It round the world here in darkness. It was torpid, heavy with sleep. Its powers were all wrapped up ia sluggishness. The sun round the great world sleeping and woke it. It called to the dull birds and they sang their matins; it sent iu light over the fields and painted them in colors beyond the power or any artist to Imitate; it touched tbe flowers, and they opened their petal" to the glory or a new morning; iu rays entered the houses, and men awoke and began to move about their dally duUes. It was an awakening, an energizing, a renewal or lire, this morning's sunrise. Even so it was when tbe Light of the world rose upon mankind It meant an awakening, ne enorgy, a renewal or life. No one can tell all that It meant when Jesus came Into the world, for his coming had a thousand meanings, it had ten thousand Influences which we are too dull to appreciate and too to observe. But we know that when the Light of the world came it meant a new era in history, and we know that when Jesus comes Into the human heart It short-sighted First I want you to see the connection a road already mapped out. The route was not chosen before they started. But step by step and day by day they were led, and God chose tbe route. Is not Jesus tbe great Leader ofhlsDeo- ple, and we have learnt a chief article or human wisdom If we have learnt to leave tomorrow to him. Btep by step be leads us. Tho way may be dark and hidden from us, hut It Is an light and plain to him, for he Is tbe light. As tbe pillar of Are was given to guide the host of Israel or old, so la Jesus the pillar or light which guides the church today. Yes, be stands today In the midst or the host, majestic, dominating the centuries, leading the church as tbe groat army or God.

I felt the closer clasp of her fingers on my guiding hand, and Smew I took a deep breath of surprise. "Lean your bead just a little oloeer," ahe whispered. "I I know you, Major Lawrenoe, and and I wish you How I kept to the measure I cannot Imagine, for, In an Instant, all my house of cards crumbled Into nothingness. She knew me, this blue-eyegirl; knew me, and sought to aid my mission, this daughter of a loyalist, thla lady of tho Dlended Rose. It was Inconceivable, and yet a fact my name bad been whispered by her lips. Suddenly she looked up laughing, as though to make others feel that we convened lightly. We passed Grant, even as I held my breath, almost afraid to venture with words. Yet they would not be restrained. "You certainly startled me; how do you know this? Surely we have nover mot before?" "I refuse to be questioned, sir; It moans nothing how I know the fact that I do should be sufficient" "Must Mistress Claire" "Ilather Mistress Mortimer." "Yet the captain called you Claire." "And we were children together you can scarcely claim such familiar ity." "I warrant you con nam me." "Allen, Is It not, sir?" What was It tho witch did not know! This was no guess work, snrely, and yet bow could her strange knowledge be accounted for? Sweet as the face was, greatly as It had attrnoted me, there was nothing to awaken a throb of memory. Sutely I could never have seen her before, and forgotten; that would have been Impossible. The music ceased, leaving us at the farther extremity of the hall. "And now you will go?" she questioned eagerly. "You mean, leave here?" "Yes; you siHd onco tonight, that but for me you would be riding yonder. I realized all you meant, and jou must not remain.

"Did you not Inform me your family were loyalists?" "Yes; It Is true," earnestly, her foot tapping the floor, aa though a'nnoyed at such persistent questioning.

Goodnight, Lieutenant Fortesque." They bad taken a step or two, when Grant halted, holding her arm tightly as he glanced back to where I stood. "Would Lieutenant Fortesque spare me a moment after I have found the lady a seat?" bo quesUoned politely. "Gladly, If you do not keep me waiting too long." "Then there will be no delay. Shall we say the parlor below?" I mowed, conscious of the mute appeal In tho lady's (ace, yet with no excuse for refusal. "Aa well there as anywhere, air." Once again we bowed with all the punctilious ceremony of mutual and he whispered something into her ear as they disappeared In the stream of people. My cheeks burned with Indignation at his cool insolence. What could It mean? Was he merely seeking a quarrel? or was there something else concealed behind this request? In either case I knew not how to act, and yet felt no inclination to avoid the meeting. Studying over the situation I pushed my way through tho crowd across the floor of the ballroom. There were a few people still lingering on the stairs, but, except for the servants, the parlors below were deserted. I walked the length of one of the great rooms, and halted in front of a fireplace to await Grant's coming. I was eager to have this affair settled, and be off. I comprehended now the risk I had assumed by remaining so long, and began to feel the cords of entanglement drawing about me. There was a door opposite where I stood, and, staring toward it, I saw It open slightly, and, hack In the darkness, the beckoning of a hand. Startled, yet realising that It must mean mo, I stepped closer, gripping the hilt of my sword, halt suspecting treachery. "Quick," and I recognised the deep contralto of the voice.

It was a starlit night, and the numerous rear windows of the man sion cast a glnr of light fur some dis tance. The dark shadow of a high fence nlono promised concealment, nnd, holding my sword tightly, I crept in that direction, breathing again more freely as I reached Its protection unobserved. There was a guard stationed beforo the stable door a Grenadier, from tho outline of his hat and oth ers, n little group, were sitting on tho grass a dozen feet awny. If they bad not been already warned 1 might gain a horse by boldness, but the probabil ity was that here was where Carter had mounted his squad, and I would merely walk forward Into a trap. I had better chanre the possibility that some visitor had left a horse tied In front, or to ono of the stands. With this possibility In mind I turned, and skirted the house, making myself as inconspicuous as possible. Thero were soldiers on the outside steps, 1 heard tbslr voIts without seeing them, and was thus driven to run swiftly serosa an open space, memory guiding me toward the opposite pavilion. Hrtalh less, with heart beating fast, I crouched low In tho shadow, endeavor ing to make out my more immediate surroundings. There were no horses there, but I could clearly distinguish the stomping of restless hoofs some where to the right As 1 straightened up, determined upon discovering an empty saddle if possible, the figure of a roan suddenly loomed directly in front, advancing toward me.
