But there were always those who were never satisfied-who would not work, and had no sense of honesty. These, then, proved good material for the use of this secret band who were sworn to a foul purpose. They were only tools, of course-just an auxiliary of a tremendous machine whose work was to spread hate in the world, and prepare the way for a great day !
They were not aware that they were merely pawns in a game, and went very seriously about their evil schemes. And all the time, there was a shadowy figure behind them who directed their destinies. They had never seen him, for he always worked through another -one who laughingly called himself " Seventy-seven " -though they never knew why ; and their unknown master always kept them well supplied with ample funds.
To-night Seventy-seven had a message for them. It was the whim of their unseen leader to speak his message on to a phonograph record, which Seventyseven would place on a machine in the presence of them all ; then they could hear the Master's own voice. This had a double effect-and their strange leader knew it very well. First, it made his words seem more personal. But more than that, the moral effect on their nerves and senses was really something tremendous on account of the uncanniness of it all. It produced something of the same sort of impression as the Oracles did in Greece, a few thousand years ago, when the wily priests used to answer the people's
