the night that the linle brook which

f'-'o* of the hi’!, could be heard gurg

e- mournfully and pleadingly in their

When they rose from their knees and
stood erect in the pale moonlight, both
wo tall and young and beautiful in their
fair white raiment, they turned and
wound their arms around each other
in an embrace of unspeakable love.
Again the night lay wrapped in silence.
Suddenly there was a fluttering above
them and a white bird flew down and
a.ighted There it nestled, with a little
plaint vf moan As the yoeng man
and the maiden strove each to touch
and soothe it? ruffled feather's, their
two hands met and clasped.

marah as the bird crept closer to tbe

dressed all in sad garments of mourn
ing. passed through the streets of Mif
peh and wended tb€ir way toward the
mountains, and. as they passed along,
behold the people came forth of their
houses to look upon them, and ever as
they saw the maidens, in their sack
cloth and ashes, men and women, and
even little children, lifted up their
voices and wept, for the vow that Jeph
! thah had vowed was known unto all
the people; also that the maiden Na
marah was gone, according unto cus
tom. to bewail upon the mountains
with the maidens, her companions.
And as the maidens walked with sad
and treasured steps, the maiden Na
marah walked ever at their head, her
stately height and noble form swathed
in sackcloth. And. although the hood
of her mantle hid her face from view,
the people said she sobbed in passing,
because that they saw the fluttering
j rise and fall of her breast beneath the
folds of her gown.
But Namarah was not weeping. Her
brow was calm and soiemn. and her
great eyes serene as be stars. Her
vigil had made her pale as the ashes
wherewith she had sprinkled her gar
ments, but the look of her face was
strong and confident, and ever she
whispered in the silence of her heart
"He will deliver.”
As the town was left behind, and the
rugged mountain path up which they
were to wend their toilsome way was
| come in view, Namarah paused, and
the maidens who followed, pausing
also, say her part the folds of her gar
ment anti take therefrom the mes
senger-dove which had already served
so faithfully. She spake no word,
neither looked she to the right nor the
left, while all the maidens wondered,
but lifting it to her lips she gently
kissed it. then raising b°r arm above ,
her head she held it on her Open paim. j
i giving it a little impulse upward, at j
which it spread its wings and flew,
with a sure and steady flight backward
along the path that they had come.
Namarah stood and looked at it until
the whiteness of its feathers was even
one with the whiteness of the clouds,
and then she turned about and began
to climb the mountain-path, her maid- l
ens following. Then were there tears
j in her eyes, in that moment, which
overflowed and fell upon her cheek, but
uo eye there was that saw them.

Hi* Best Ideas.
That the American 'man with the
hoe" does not find tne life of the farm
stultifying must surely be inferred
from the words of an old tiller of the
soil, who came across a classical vol
ume and found in Plato a kindred
spirit. The good American farmer
called upon a doctor, and was ushered
into the library. At once the well-filled
tiook-shelves drew his attention. "Are
you fond of reading?” asked the doc
i tor. noting the wandering gaze. "Well,
1 yes." returned the farmer, modestly.
"1 should be pleased to lend you a book
to take home with you.” said the other.
"Just take any one that you think
you'd like to read.” “Oh, I'm no good
at selectin',” replied the old man.
"You pick one out, doctor.” So the
doctor, in a spirit of fun. gave the
farmer a book written by Plato. The
old man went away, and at the end of
a week reappeared with the book un
der bis arm. "Well,” queried the doc
tor. did you read the book?’-’ "Yes. I
did." was the emphatic answer. “And
what did you think of it?” “It was
fust-rare,” responded the farmer. “I've
read it through from kiver to kiver. I
never heard tell of this fellow Plato
before, but all the same I’m glad to
find that the old chap has been writing
uj» some of my very best ideas.”
Venice Without Water.
Venice without water would hardly
be Venice at all, but we are assured
there is a possibility that the pictur
esque Venice of today may become a
city of the past, and eventually Ven
ice may be waterless. According to
Prof. Marlnelli, the regular increase in
the delta of the River Po is such that
in process of time the northern Adri
atic will be dry and Venice will no
more be upon the sea. A comparison
of the Austrian map of 1823 with the
record of the surveys of 1893 shows
that the mean annual increase of the
delta during these seventy years has
been three-tenths of a square mile. An
encroachment upon the sea of three
tenths of a mile in a year means a
large increase in a century. It appears
that the total increase in six centuries
has been about 198 square miles. The
increase is continuing and the Gulf of
Venice is doomed to disappear. No im
mediate alarm need be felt, and it will
not be necessary to hurry off to Ven
ice to take a farewell look at the city
in its present pictiiresqueness. Prof.
Marinelli calculates that between 100
and 120 centuries w'ill elapse before the
entire northern Adriatic will have be
come dry land.
An Ideal of True Creatne**.
A Cleveland paper tells a story of a
street incident which shows the ideal
of greatness which the sensational
newspapers, with their extravagant at
tention to "athletics,” are inculcating
among the street boys. Two very dirty
boys of this class were engaged in dis
figuring as much as possible every face
: on the advertisements on a big bill
board. They turned the actresses into
bearded ladi^. put cigars in the
mouths of res,_H-table aged gentlemen,
and gave Adm .**:1 Dewey a black eye.
Then one of th*v: started with his pen
cil for a face .a the middle of the
board. But th:, others called out:
"Hey! Don't to anything to that!”
("Why not?” askiC. the first. “Why,
don’t you know? Chat's Jeffries, the
champion!" They _i>ft the face un
mutilated. looked respectfully at it a
moment, and trudged along.
A Change for tk| Better.
Lady Violet Greville, icaunenting on
the emancipation of wonna. says that
in the early days of Quec-r Victoria a
married woman never took an airing
on foot, even in the park, unless at
tended by her maid, and it is oc.ty with
in the last fifteen years that g rls of
good family could walk alone itr cer
tain quiet and respectable sheets.
There was once a time when to thrive
alone in a hansom would have subject
ed a lady to the imputation of beixjg
fast and immodest. Now there L*
scarcely anything women cannot do.

In a recent letter to Dr. Hartman he
writes among other things, as follows
“Our boy, James, had the membra

lung fever. Our boy, Charlie, was also
subject to attacks of pneumor,»a and
pleurisy. Our third boy, John, was
subject to fever and ague (malarial)

now I have three of the healthiest
boys in the State of Nebraska, which
I attribute to your medicine. My wife

also cured. Altogether for my whole

o? Peruna, and have thus saved S500
in doctors’ bills. I am a contractor
and mason by trade, and am know-n all

which I am still taking it. We think

An army officer tells this story: “One
of my chaplain friends was on an army
fansport. going South with officers
and men from various regiments. The
officers were playing cards ip the cabin
fiom morning to night. When Sunday
came the chaplain took a good supply
of reading matter from his cabin, and
was on hand with it as the breakfast
table was cleared off and the officers
were getting ready to play cards as
usual. Stepping to the head of the
table, he said, good naturedly: ‘Gen
tlemen. tracts are trumps today, and
it's my deal!’ ‘All right, chaplain,
the officers responded, ‘give us a hand.'
The books and prayers were given out.
No cards were played that day. The
chaplain had his opportunity unhind
ered. because he showed tact in his
v>ay of presenting his case."
Mrs. Eldridge of Colorado in telling
the New York women how women vote

suffrage they would get it. but she does
not believe that as yet it would be
