PERSIAN HERETICS. PERSECUTED SECT DfWf N BY THE PRESENT Tli Rlne and rail of llab. Bln Bcformcr Ilia Hrave; tTntiiuely Iti The Greater OUlf. SHAH. tbe:Mohajn-v Tbragb ' lie!.. Who I u Kills from Ilia Native Land. Professor Browne, lecturer in Persian at tho University of Cambridge, has written a curious book, entitled "The Episode of the Dab." Probably a few people know who the Bab is, but Mr. Browne's rewarchea are certain to awaken interest in the man who was the arch heretic of Pensia in the early part of the reign of the present shah, Ho died a violent death at the hands of the government when it was learned that the heresy that he preached threatened the peace of the national church. Ilia followers live and are faithful to his memory and teachings. Their leaders are in exile, and Profes sor Browne's book tells of his extraordi nary exertions to see them and get their story from their own lips. They are scattered far and wide. Some of them are in Cyprus; others are in Palestine, safe from the vengeance of the shah. All of them would expect to lose their heads if they showed themselves in Persia. Only the humble followers of the Bab live unmolested in their own country. bolding their meetings secretly for fear or the persecution-of the angry Mollahs. T W mar ana uao was a jaonammeaan re former, who went to Mecca and came back with a new commentary on the Koran. He spoke of himself as superior to Mohammed and to all other great re ligions reformers, but he announced that a greater than he was coming. That greater one is Beha, who lives in an earthly paradise called Behje, near Tyre, where Professor Browne found him. The author says he feels quite an equal to the ta.sk of conveying a vivid impi fusion of the faces and forms that surrounded him during his visit to this strange retreat. He almost runs 6hort of adjectives when he describes the wondrous and venerable figure of the holy man. Ho "says he beheld a face which he will never forget, although he cannot descrilie it. The piercing eyes seemed to read his very soul. "No need to ask in whoso presence 1 stood as 1 bowed myhelf lefore ono who is the ob ject of a devotion and love which kings might envy and emperors 6igh for in vain." Beha's preaching is a prophecy of the "most great peace" and of the brother hood and unity of man. The brother hood of the entire race is coming, he predicts. Prof. Browne says Beha knows the exact position of European affairs and is sorry for the western nations. He sees kings and rulers lavishing their treasures in the purchase of means of destructioa instead of procuring the means of happiness. Meekness, con cord, obedience, submission are the es sentials of his secret in the perfect way. He is loved ajid revered by all his fol lowers wherever they may be, and many a message from him is read in the secret meetings in Persia of the humble fol lowers of the Bab. The Bab was not learned in the law like the great doctors of the church, and for that reason they held hirn in contempt. It was his habit to dispute with them in the temples, and although he was ignorant his wisdom put their knowledge to shame. They said he proved himself an impostor because he talked bad grammar. He showed them that his grammar was the grammar of the Koran, and asked them if it was not better to be wrong with the prophet than right with the rest of the world. Whenever he became too troublesome they beat him with rods. At last they had him shot. A company of infantry was drawn up, and the Bab and one of his followers were placed before it as targets. The first discharge killed the follower, but only broke the cords that bound the prophet. He might have con verted ms executioners then if he had had time to make the most of the situa tion. But before he could speak tb second volley was fired and the Bab died of many wonnds. His followers were terribly incensed at the outrage, and tried to assassinate the shah. It is said that he fainted with terror at the sight of the conspirators, and was only saved by the timely arri val of his escort. For a time he made Persia very unsafe for the followers of the Bab. He killed their leaders, and to this day those who escaped from thev native land have never dared to retuxK Among the victims was the one Salva tion Lass of the movement, the beauti ful Kurratu 1-Ayn, who, it is said, was miracle of learning and of every femi ne charm, bhe was killed bv slow orture, and to the very last she declared ier supreme faith in the teacnurs of he Bab.

A makls Hoi In the Onud Oat at Wblcb Mackajr Took 1 00,000,000-, ; I was strolling with Mackay some years ago : in Virginia City, when we loqked down a smoking cavity in tho ground that was soon lost in ' the dafk ne; and at the mouth of which a wind lass was slowly grinding. "Out of that hole," he said, "I took $150,000,000 iu bullion." This was one of the fatuous Bonanza mines, whose hintory all men know. The Big Bonanza, as it Uiw called, and as Mackay described it to iu at the time, was a "kidney" or "pocket" of crude ore, about as high a the steeple of Trinity and in ar..?i as large as the City Hall park of New York This ore, shoveled out and red; in !. gave the stupendous yield to wbu li Mi: Mackay referred, and was the fuufl.i tion of the Bonanza fortunes.

Flood was the financial representative and the ally of the two young miners who were at work on the Bonanza; O'Brien, the "partner" in the firm, be cause Flood could have no interest he did not share. O'Brien passed away in Bonanza times Flood not many months since, in Germany. He was a brave, independ ent, reserved, conscientious man, es pecially charming and true in the higher relations of life no better citizen, no truer friend "in all that goes toward the true development of manhood, the best man I have ever known," as Mackay said to me when the hour of irrevocable silence had fallen. . "I know only one man in the world that can break me and that is Mackay." This Flood said to me and I note it as showing the strong links which in those days bound the Bonanza firm and gave it a strong and a confidence which were the basis of its power.

Beauty aa m National Trait. Is there any handsome people on the face of the globe? Now, we may set aside the black and yellow and poly chrome races in general, many of whom are well shaped and like bronze statues to look upon, but who do not come up to the Aryan standard in features and color. Leaving these children of nature out of the question, it may be confessed that there is no race among whom beau ty is common. If the ancient Greeks were like their statues, then there once was a beautiful raco. but it is not so eertain that they did not idealize them selves a good deal. Then is the more reason to guess this, as when they have to represent a barbarian, say a Gaul 01 a German or a professional prizefighter, they make these people as handsoir xc themselves, though in a rougher way. l here is a famous bronze statue of 8 boxer, who might be taken for an oratoi or a poet were it not for his heavy meta: studded gloves. Thus it may be deemee that there is a great proportion of the ideal in these statues, vases, coins and fig ures, where every one is so graceful and goodly. Every nation has a high opin ion of its own charms. The French pride themselves on small feet, and it is certain that their women walk very lit tle, and have cunning bootmakers. London News. Kept the Least for Himself, Three ragged newsboys were trying to sell the earlier editions of the after noon papers. A man carrying a lar basket of fine looking oranges on his shoulder passed close by. The motion of his body loosened one of the biggest and ripest and it fell to the ground. The man kept on, not noticing or caring f oi the loss. The orange lay upon the pave ment for about half a minute unseen. Then the largest of the three ragged urchins spied it, and with a cry of de light he ran over and picked it up. It was natural to suppose that he would proceed to eat it all himself, but instead of doing so he called his companions and xhibited his find. They eyed it greed lly. Without any request from them for a hare in the coveted fruit the finder di rided the orange into three parts and gave his fellow newsboys each a part. The smallest part he reserved for him self. It was only a small thing in itself, yet it proved, I thought, that there was something noble hidden under the ragged garments of that little urchin.
