"Set the place on fire. . . . ?" What did she mean? He could tell from her actions that she intended to put some wild plan in operation, but this— this sounded as though she were cracking— was getting desperate. It was sheer disaster. Joan looked nt her watch. It was 12:30. There wasn't much time. She was concerned now, not only with escaping, hut in get<ting Dan hack in time for Ihe game ... for the kickoff, if possible. She went to the sink and made a pretense of scrubbing the coffee pot, taking longer than usual while she charted her. next move. She was astounded that hor nerves were holding up so well. 1 Steady, now ... no slips. She knew exactly what she was going "Maybe I better add a little coal oil." Big Ed grunted something but didn't look up, Joan reached for the glass gallon jar of fuel in the corner. Her heart pounded as though it might burst from her body. No faltering now step. this was the last to do no reason why it couldn't be a perfect job. Just like following directions if she were cool.

He opened his mouth, shook his head slightly, signifying his ignorance. Then he got it. She wanted him to pretend he was reading in case Big Ed looked up suddenly. She smiled confidently and he lowered his eyes. Might as well let her play her hand to the hilt. Joan placed the pot on the stove. "Got a match?" she called to Big Ed. Her voice was steady. He looked up tossed her a book of paper matches rind resumed his game of solitaire. She struck one . . . made a pretense of lighting a burner, but purposely allowed the match to go out. She struck another . . . repeated the maneuver. "These wicks must be all dried out," she announced out loud. Just once she thought she might not be able to go through with it. Sho looked nt Dan and her courage was renewed. Her fingers shook as she lighted another match . . . dropped it to the floor and hoped it would keep burning. It did. Flickered brightly. As silently as possible she dropped another. She gambled one quick glance at Big Ed. Now. . . . Breathing n prayer, she swung the glass jar hard against the corner of the stove and sprang backward in the same movement. There was a mighty "whooosh!" as the flood of coal-oil hit one of the burning matches. Joan barely got out of the way in time. JJIG ED leaped to his feet with an onlli ns a solid sheet of name reared angrily in the air. •"You dumb dame, you . . .!" he screamed. "You clumsy . , ." He sprang toward the flames, looked for something to beat them out with and saw it was hopeless. The floor, dry as tinder, was drenched with the fuel. The place would be roaring in five minutes. Joan retreated against the wall, her hands shielding her face. She backed along the wall toward Sam's coat. Now she was right in front of it. "We gotta get outa here!" Big Ed shouted. "This place ain't gonna last long!" Again lie cursed her apparent stupidity. Flustered, he ran to the window, pushed it up and shouted to Sam in the barn. "Sam . . . hey Sam!" he shrieked. "Get that car started, quick. This joint's on fire!" When hei turned around he found himself staring into the muzzle of a gun. That brief moment, was all Joan had needed. "Stand back against that other wall or I'll shoot!" Joan cried. She aimed the gun directly at Ma stomach, "I mean it," she added, desperately. Big Ed stopped short. His face grew livid. His eyes blazed with a light that almost matched the flames, and his lips mouthed soundless words. His right hand twitched nervously toward his pocket but Joan, stopped him with a movement of the gun. He saw the expression on her face and discretion overcame his temporary insanity. "Turn 'around and face the wall," she .snapped. * * * TJAN was at her side now and she felt better. "You're a marvel," he whispered. "Quick hold the gun on him while I untie you," she replied. "Sam will be here any second." They could hear the car starting in the barn. Joan dashed to the table, returned with a knife and slashed the ropes which held Dan's wrists. "Now we can really work," he muttered. The flames licking along the floor had engulfed one side of the house. The smoke was getting thicker. "You," Dan said to Big Ed. "Move away from that door." Big Ed moved sullenly out of sight as Sam rushed up to the house. "Hey . . . hey, what th' hell!" 10 shrilled, storming inside. His eyes popped as Dan stepped out dnd covered him with the gun. "Okay," Dan grated. "Outside . . both of you." He motioned .with the gun. "Into the back of the car, there . . . quick!' 1 Big Ed snarled, looked as though he might balk. "Get in there or I'll blow your brains out," Dan said softly. "A*nd keep your hands away from that pocket. In fact," he continued, "you'd better take that coat off easy now so I can watch you." Big Ed was desperate but helpless. He slid out of the coat and dropped it to the ground, the gun still in the pocket. Dan relaxed. "Now get in there." (( "You drive," Dan said to Joan. "I'll keep an eye on our little playmates here." Joan threw the car into gear and they, swung down toward the grinned back at them. road. Dan "Hope you have this bus running smoothly now, Sammy old boy. I'd hate to have a breakdown now." Sam cursed under his breath. (To Be Continued) shall be required of thec. and whose shall these things be'.'" The point is not that this farmer \vns a sinner or a .sinner above other men. but rather that he had left out of hjs calculations the most important thing of i:U. How many of us arc wiser than this prosperous farmer? How many of us, either in prosperity or adversity, are putting first the things that endure, the real goal and the real worth? Jesus bade a rich young man who came lo Him seeking the eternal life to sell all lhat he had and give to the poor, offering him in exchange treasure in Heaven. We may not all be called ui)on to make such sacrifice, but oaur lives are not worth much until the treasure of Heaven i.s weighed over against everything else. We never attain to the best and the highest until lhat treasure in Heaven has become worth more to us than anything else, the thing to which We give our hearts and lives. It is this same truth that Jesus enforces by other illustrations. If there be .anything doubtful or perplexing in the lesson, it is in the latter part where Jesus enforces the lesson of faith in God's providence. There has been throughout the ages a great deal of controversy over the meaning of this. Did Jesus teach thai we * SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON Gods Kingdom First Toxl. MuUliew «:l!l-:i4 H.v WILLIAM E. filLHOV, ». I). Editor of Advance The power of the words of Jesus lies not only in their truth, but also in the great directness and clarity with which he expressed the truth. He brought it home lo ordinary men in iheir daily live.s; and although there i.s much in the Sermon on the Mount Iliat is somewhat perplexing and not easily applied in the difficult situations of life, the portion of this lesson, putting God's Kingdom first, i.s very clear and unmistakable. Jrsas begins wilh the simple fact that where a man's treasure is, there will his heart be also. That is a self- evident truth. A man's treasure is not what he calls hi.s treasure, but Hint to which he is giving his life and upon which he would .stake his life It is important, therefore, that a man should seek the true treasure. Jesus saw men laboring and .sacrificing nnd enduring to build up for themselves a treasure of things that had no permanency or real value. When lie Haw a farmer, whose farm had prospered, pulling down his barns and building larger ones that he might line! a place to store all his goods. Jesus pointed out that lie had overlooked the most important thing of all—Ills 1 i f e. "Thou foul, this ni|jlit thy soul should be utterly unmindful of tomorrow., making no provision for it and living life only in a sort of hand- to-mouth existence from day to day? One can hardly believe that. One can hardly believe that. Even can hardly .believe that. Even His reference to the birds which are fed by the Heavenly Father would not jusify that interpretation, for if anyone has watched birds he must realize that they are most active and persistent in the pursuit of food and the finding of a living. But Jesus sow men filled with anxious thought, concerned more about tomorrow than today. He saw them weakening their efforts because of this anxiety, and it was in this spirit that He bade them to seek first the Kingdom of God and to have no anxious thought for tomorrow. It: is good teaching for those who seek first the Kingdom of God, whose hearts and lives are given over with complete consecreation to the kingdom of love and truth; but it would be very poor teaching for those who had not made this crucial surrender of their lives to all that is noblest JIIK! best. Here i.s the insistent truth of the lesson—that we should put God's kiiijjcloni Hrst, not that we should be careless .slackers in the business of living.

Among the hundreds of mysteries to be seen in The Great Virgil's performance will be: The Mystery of the Jungle, featuring n real live African Lion named Simba; Simba is placed in a strong cage and hoisted into the air, and in the twinkling of an eye he vanishes in a puff of smoke; The Beautiful Hindoo Princess Asleep in Mid-air; The Chinese Opium Den Mystery; The Fascinating Oriental fantasy of Chinatown After Dark. Basket Mystery and the Hindoo Rope Miracle. The Great Virgil has actually solved these two great accomplishments of the Hindoo magicians, brought them to this country and will present them here. In the Rope Miracle. Virgil casts a rope high in the air on a fully lighted stage. A boy climbs to the top of the rope and while all eyes are on the boy lie vanishes from the ver ytop of the rope and the rope falls back to the stage.

You will see the dissolving oC the bodies of two human beings. You will shudder during the spiritseance during which the spooks will raise tables and float them out over the audience and manifest themselves all over the stage and auditorium.

Julie can and will read the minds of the audience and tell their e.vuct thoughts as they sit in the audience. Julie is an exponent of thought wave communication between human beings and believes that thousands of years from now the projection and receiving of thoughts will be as common as the telephone, telegraph and radio is now.
