The strange cliff-Buddha of Kiatang, whose head is here pictured, is
about 150 feet in height. It Is full length and the feet are washed by a foam
ing mountain torrent. It was, Indeed, to guard against the dangers of the
rapids here that the figure was cut In the cliff-side by the life-long labor of a
tingle priest. The rock is rather. soft and, as can be seen, there is much
earth In the crevices which has been utilized for a monstrous growth of hair,
eyebrows and mustache.

It is not unusual for a dog, the pet
of a family, to bo given burial on the

Wonderful Painted House
In Locarno on Lake Maggiore stands the remarkable painted houca
here shown. The formerly blank side of the building has been painted to
represent the front entrance of a large villa. The Illusion Is perfect until one
has approached very close to the house. Then only Is It seen that the loggia,
the window with bojtle glass panes, the projecting side column with gar
goyle and cornice, the foliage on the arbor, the round window under the
caves and all the sculptured decorations art merely painted on a flat surface

As is generally known, a big quanti
ty of fish spawn is annually lost. To
avoid this, fish rearers In China care
tully collect spawn from tho surface
of tho water, and when they havo fee
cured a sulllclent quantity they take a
number of hens' eggs, tho contents of
which havo been carefully emptied
through a Hmnll aperture, and refill
tho bIibIIb with the spawn. .Tho holes
are then sealed up, and tho eggs put
under broody henB.
Tho henB aro allowed to Incubate
tho eggs for a ccrtnln number of dayB,
when the eggs aro again broken and
their contents put Into water that
has been previously warmed by the
sun. In a very short spaco of time
the spawn hatches, and tho young fry
aro then kopt in pure, fresh water
until they attain a sufficient size to
be put Into the ponds containing old
er tish. The Chinese have long under
stood all the Intricacies of incubation,
and wero amongst tho first to use In
cubators for tho hatching of hens'
eggs, long before such machines wero
made in this country. At ono time a
considerable business was done ln

For Instance, thero was the famous
anti-seasick steamer, Hessemer, with
Its adJUBtnblo "swinging oaloon,"
which, It was intended, should always
praBcrvD a horizontal floor. Ab a mat
ter of fact, tho Hessemer rolled worse
than any tramp.
Yet another attempt to overcome
tho evil was that made by a French
man named Llazln. In elTect, his idea
was to construct u steamer on wheels,
Not paddle-wheels, be It understood,
but seinl-submerged hollow steel discs,
which should i oil partly tliioiigh and

Ib called tho Klchener Seo, and Is per

years nt a tlmo, after which periods
subterranean springs rellll the lake
without any pro lous warning, Hooding
and destroying any crops that havo
been planted. Tho soil In the bed of
tho lake Is very productlvo, but tho
farmers and peasants never know In
what year their work will bo useless
nnd their young crops "drowned." A
few weeks ago tho Klchener Seo, after
hnvlng.boen dry for tho last ten yeuro,
began rulllllng with water, which in
tho deepest part Is now fifteen feet,
tho uverago depth being twelvo feet.

I. Joseph and Jacob, vv. 1-C. Jos
eph's meeting with his ugod father la
u beautiful picture. Agulu Judah
comes Into promlnenco as a sort of
ambassador in leading tlio old man
Into this new land and to present him
beforo his son, who now Is exalted so
highly among the ruhuB of tho earth.
In this ho Is a prophecy of that day
when the descendants of Jacob shall
gather before llliu "whom they
pierced." Joseph does not await their
coming but "went up to meet them"
(4(5:29) us they passed thiough tho
provlnco of (ioshen.
It Ih true that Jacob and his sons
cntno to Kgpl nt Pharaoh's personal
.invitation (45:17, IS), yet thero wero
sufficient lensoiiH why Joseph might
havo been ashnmed of, or fearful to
associate with, theso his kinsmen.
111b fathor was a plain countryman.
Ills brothers weio not an altogether
reputable crowd. And, further, they
wero shepherds and "every shepherd
1b an abomination unto tho Egypt Inns"
(4G:34). lint they aro his brethren
nnd ho was glad to confess them even
as Christ will gladly confess us.
Joseph's Great Wisdom.
Wo have hero another evidence of
Joseph's great wisdom in that ho coin,
mands 'tliein to remain in Goshen
whllo ho goes beforo them unto Pha
raoh to pieparo tho way. Even so
not all ate to come nt once Into Pha
raoh's prcbencc (47:2). In ActB 7:13
wo read that this cavalcade consisted
of three score and llfteen souls,
though this probably did not includo
slaves nnd other dependents. It Ib
very significant that Joseph Bccures
Goshen( for his kinsfolk. It wns near
to himself (15:10); It was separated
from all unnecesnary contact with tho
Egyptians (v. 34) and It was a placo
superior to all othcra for them as
herdsmen (v. G). Joseph anticipates
Pharaoh's question (v. 3) and gavo
his brothers instruction how .to an
Bwer, but they seom to havo gone
somewhat beyond in that they raako
request that they might dwell in
Goshen. Joseph charged them to
speak of themselves as keepers 0)f
II. Jacob and Pharaoh, vv. 7-12.
Pharaoh does not seem to bo overly
enthusiastic over theso flvo brothers
whom Joseph presented (v. C). Asldo
from tho fact that they wero Joseph's
brothers, thero was nothing to com
mend them. No more havo wo any
thing to commend us In tho sight of
God except that wo nro Chrlst'B
brethren; though that Ib an abund
ance. Pharaoh and Jacob.
Tho plcturo of old Jacob in tho
presence of Pharaoh Ib striking In
ono respect at least, tho fact that
ho who came to this land for tho
blessing of tho sustcnanco of life,
should bless Pharaoh. Jacob confer
red upon Pharaoh In his blessing inoro
than Pharaoh conferred upon Jacob
by tho opening of all Egypt to him
self nnd his family. Thin act upon
tho part of Jacob la suggestive of tho
dignity of age, and significant In Us
revelation of Jacob's relation to, and
knowledge of, tho purposes of God.
Pharaoh inquires as to Jacob'B age
and ho replies that his "pilgrimage"
bad been 120 years. lie who bad
entered Into all tho rights of tbo birth
right and the blessings of God's cove
nant people, exercised those rights
when he stands beforo tho great Pha
raoh. He bad caught tho truth that
an earthly life is but a pilgrimage.
Conclusion. Not included in our
lesson, but in this section, wo havo
set beforo us Joseph's administration
of the affairs of Egypt which glvo us
further insight Into tho greatness of
thia" man. In tho close dV tho lesson
proper, veraen 11-12, thero Is presented
to us Joseph's provision for his father
and his brethren. This is a typo of
Christ in ils caro for us. In tjio
midst of dangers (Jno. 10:10, 2S) nnd
famine, and misunderstanding Ho i&
over near. Joseph la now satisfied for
ho has '.is own near unto him. Jesus
Christ Is longing that we may bo with
Iflm in tht placo which No hnB gone
to prepare for us, John 11:2, :, 17, 24,
though Ho has not left us comfortless
during these day of separation, John
11:23. Joseph fed Ills brothers on
tho best tho land afforded (v. 11), oven
bo wo may havo tho old corn (Josh.
C:ll) and the new wlno (Prov. 3:9,
10). Wo thus see bow God Ib work
ing out His purpose concerning tho
Hebrew people,
Taken away from tho peril into which
Judah fell (chapter 38), and the
threatened famine, also from tho hos
tility of the other shepherd racea
among 'whom they dwelt, thoy ore
brought into Egypt and aro thero sep
arated and yet supplied as God's plan
develops and they becomo big enough
