Last year over a mlUlon emigrants

'living here. Many people for a short ,
: year , and wltbout question largo numbers -
, bers do not find In the new world
quite the golden land of their visions.
What a picture they make at EUls
island , what pictures they suggest.
Let us go In fancy to this famous spot ,
"the greatest gateway of Immigration
In the world"-and watch an Incom-
, ing. Thirteen ships have arrlTed , 1,900
' immigrants are awalUng Inspectlon-

dvanclng patiently , stolidly , dumbly ,
like cattle ; Russian Jews , Austrian
Jews , F nns , fllavs ; , Italians , Hungarians -
ans , Germans , Scandinavians. The
women carry or load lIttle ones , the
men bear sman trunles on head or

tor the men drop their loads and remove -
move their hats-for up there above
them fioats the American fiag , and
their first lesson Is to be a lesson in

part. The impressionable on-looker

A study In contrasts of no smaH interest -

the human freight so differently conditioned -

The Fortnightly speaks of present
emigration as a stnmpede , which gath.
ers headway with every passing month.
"This stampede has now reached sucb
proportions as to occupy an the ener-
glos of a scor of steamship lines In
handling the travel , to warrant the es-
tnbllshment of new and more dlroct
routes and the building of now ships
especlally designed for the carrying of :
this cargo. The business Is prolltnble
There are compar Uvely few restrlc
tlons upon It , and In central and south ,
ern Europe there is apparently a vast
amount of human freight needing only
a start , and Urns lccep up for an in.
definite term of years this gigantic In
dustry. "
But let us refer again to the tide
of travel setting the other way , to the
tourist and to the society tolk going
over for the London season and gaye. ,
ties In othcr great European capitals. .
A writer in Harpor's Bazar , treating
of "Luxurious Days at Sea , " remarks :
"Thero are , Indeed , a good many citizens -

afl an offset to this list there Is a con.

have tested almost every transatlantlo

And now let us go to the very con ,
slderable class that travel neither In

be shared by four , but when ono oncr

It Is no shame , but a joy to bo crossIng -
Ing the first time-not the man that

tllOr variety produces Its blossoms on
the short lateral shoots that start out

Sometimes roses are spoiled by mil.

does not check the disease move the

The rose bug Is a ravenous leaf-

spoonful to eight gallons of water )
after the sun Is done shining on the

water In the morning to prevent the
sun from burning where the polson Is.

There are few flowers more pleasing

produce beautiful fiowers longer than
most other plants.
The tubers of a hundred different
varieties , each with a charm of Its
own"may be purchased"or the plants
may be grown from seed , but the
easiest method is to plant the tuber-
IIko roots. The tubers are separated
Into several pieces each , leaving one
eye for each piece , and planted In a
yard or field 1I1ee potatoes , except that
lhe time of planting must be delayed
unUl all danger of frost Is past.
Care must be talCn not to disturb
any of the eyes. The tubers should be
planted about four fnches deep and
given a good watering Immediately
after planting. They grow best In very
rich , heavy sell , and should bo planted -
ed about two or three feet apart. They
should bo In a position which Insures
plenty of light and air , hut where the
plants wlll not bo exposed to much dl.
rect sunlight. They wlll not endure a
long season of very hot , dry weather.
The plants should be tied to stalees
about four feet In holght. All but the
strongest shoots should be removed
as they appear , only the strongest be.
Ing left standing , and the tyln
should begin when the plant Is a foot
high , being continued as It grows.
In the fall , after the frost has lellled
the tops of the plants and there Is dan.
ger of the ground freezing' , the roots
or tubers may be taleen and stored In
a dry , cool , frost'proof room or cel.
lar. It Is a good plan to examine the
tubers occasionally during the win.
ter and remove any decayed specimens.

noted that In the depths of the sparkling -
ling o'es whloh 1001 < 011 upon the
scene there lurlccd nn oxpresslon of
fear and terror. And It one had
watched him he would soon have no-
tlcod that not tor an Instant did ho
lose sight of his first born son In
whose honor the brilliant function had
been &rrnnged , With an eagerness
nnd Intensity almost painful his o 'es
followed the young man's ever ) ' move , ,
nnd Ir for an Instant he was lost sight :
of amidst the throng lIe would start
up uneasily nnd shift his position until -
til he had again brought him within
range of his vision.
Two weeles had passed slnco his last
Intorvlew with 1\Ioses , but try us he
would he could not target bls solemn
warning. Ho hud made light of It. lie
bad persuaded hhnsof ) that ho In
whom the spirit of the Egyptian gods
rested had nothing to fear. Dny by
du ) ' 1,0 had lOpt his son near him ,
Quite confident thnt tlms he could
: ward off any evil thing which might
seek to overtake 111m. But as the
dn's came and went the fear and apprehension -
prehension wore on his nerves and on
the day before ho had sought diversion
for himself and entertnlnlllent for his
son In the present function.
But there was no thought or Inclination -
tion on his pnrt of listening to Moses
or of heeding his warning , for his
haughty , proud , unyielding spirit
turned his heart hard as flint and In
great anger ho had driven Moses from
bls presence vowing If he should again
show his face he would lose his 1lfe.
But try as he would he could not forget -
get 1\Ioses' word of jUdgment against
the first born of Egypt nnd against
his own son. He did not believe It ,
and - yet he could not dismiss the
thought from his mind. Ho had consulted -
sulted the astrologers of the temple
and his wise men who had assured
him that the stars and aU signs were
auspicious for a long llfe and successful -
ful reign for his son. But notwithstanding -
standing those reassuring worda ho
felt apprehensive and whether asleep
or awalee the vision of Moses was
evcr before him and the words he had
spoken kept ringing In bls ears :
"About midnight will Jehovah go
out In the midst of Egypt and all the
first-born In the land shall die , from
the first born of Pharaoh even unto
the first born or the hand maiden. "
" : MIdnight ! " "The first born , even the
son of Pharaoh ! " How eagerly and
Intensely he had watched his son since
then ! How anxiously he had counted
the time at the midnight hour. Thus
the days had passcd.
But he was not content to let the
matter rest there , for he sent his messengers -
sengers secre ly to Goshen to spy on
Moses and find out what was transpiring -
ing there. And when he had learned
of the singular preparations under
way he felt more than ever uneasy and
The last Information he had received -
ceived had been obtained the day before -
fore when his messeJ.ger : told him of
the preparations which the Hebrews
were malting for the sacrlnce of u
lamb , the blood of which was to bo
sprlnltled upon the llntol and sldo
posts of the doorways of the people ,
tor , said they solemnly , " 'I'he Lord Is
to pass through the land. "
"Said they that ? " exclaimed Pharaoh -
aoh , as Moses' words came wltl > new
force to him.
"Yes , " responded the messenger ,
who had been deeply Impressed with
what he had seen and heard. "Yes ,
the Hebrews seem desperately In earnest -
est , and they evidently boHeve that
tholr God Is about to do some wonderful -
ful thing. And as nenr as I could discover -
cover from tholr conversation , they
expect the visitation at midnight , and
have all been told to shut themselves
In their homes , lest death should over-
talcc them. "
Pharaoh paled vlslbl ) ' , and sllentlr
and sullenly dismissed his messengel' ,
and then moved by a rocllesa spirit of
defiance he had planned for the brilliant -
liant court affair of that evening ,
thinking to so surround himself and
his son with the lhrlll and throb or
court llfe as to dety even death.
But as the evening wore on Pharaoh
grew more and more restive. The moments -
ments as they passed seemed llko
hours , nnd time and tlmo again ho
sent his attendant to find whether the
midnight watch had yet boon set.
The last tlmo the attendant had returned -
turned sarlng that It still luclwd some
time of the hour his son had been
standing at his side , und had nsked ,
joltlnglr , why ho was so can corned
about the midnight hour.
tlla It tb ) ' pU1'1 > ese to end this festive
scene at thnt Umo ? Th\ \ wilt han a
hnrd tItslt upon thy hand I , for the fes-
tlvltlos are just at theil' holght. and
then dost know Ulat to cond the guesta
homo unsatlafied i8 to In ur tholr dls-
pleasuf . And as tOr mo there are
man ) ' things I bave In mind to do nnd
talk about ere I am willing to SOD my
trlonds departs. " And sa'lng which
he had turnell at1l1 wont oft In the direction -
rection of a group of his frlonds who
were c\'on then motioning him to
hnsten nnd share In the tun the leadIng -
Ing spirit of the group bad proposed ,
. And Pharaoh I1nl\ watched him go
, with 11 lighter heart nnd a stronger
assurance , Al1I1 calling his attendant
ho ordered the wino nnd dranlc with
great gusto to the gads of the Egyp.
tluns , nnd to the future fayor and
blessing of his son. 80 cheerful did
his spirits grow that 11'0 forgot about
the mntters which had so greatly distressed -
tressed him-about the midnight hour
and the jUdgment of the Hebrew God
-amI as he throw hlmsolt Into the
gayeties that were now at their holght ,
the tlmo spOtI unnoticed.
"Once more let us drlnle to tbo
gods of I gypt , " ho crlod. "To the
great god tlmt smiles upon the Innd
by dny nnll that plans grenter slorlcs
Cor his favored ones by night. "
A great shout greeted the Icing's
11rol10sal , and again the wino flowed
"AmI here"s to the lelng's son , " shouted -
ed a volco as the young man , the con.
tor of an animated group , was seoU
approaching. .
Pharaoh smiled aI1pro\'lngly , an
watched the young man with glowing
pride. What a plcturo of health and
beauty ho was. With nll of lICe bl )
toro him , whut 011portunltlesl What
IJOsslbllItles !
So Pharaoh thought , and well ho
might , Cor the young man was well
tavored In form nnd tace , and bora i
himself with grace ami dignity , As the
father watched him advancing acros.
the marble floor of the great room , his
heart leaped with IJrlde and triumph ,
and he muttered to hlmseU :
"Where IsIosos" ! boasted jUdgmont1
The gods of the Egyl1Uans still reign ,
and the God ot the Hebrews Is no god
at all. "
Suddenly , nnd even while the worda
wore warm Ul10n his lips , he B W a
deadly pallor overspreall the face of
his boy. Ho saw him lICt his hnnds
high above his head , whllo nn n.gony
of fear distorted his features , and witb
ono piercing cry , he fell forward upon
his fnce.
Paralyzell by the sight nnd the awful
fear which selzod him , the Icing looleod
upon the scene with eyes which almost
startell from their socleet. ; . His hands
gripped the Ivory arms of his tbrono
with an Intensity which almost crushed
the dollcately.carvod ornaments. The
father's eyes never moved from the ob.
ject lying there prostrate upon the
ground , nnd lIe did not see that here
and there throughout the vast room
there were others falling to the ground.
He did 'not seem to bear the cries of
terror and anguish aH about him , He
saw but ono thing , and that was the
form of his son lying upon the floor.
Could It bo possible that he who WI18
so full of Ute and animation an In.
stant before was lying there now sUll
In death ?
"No ! No ! No ! " ho crlod. "It can.
not be : It shall not bo. " And leaping
from his seat with a fierce cry of despair -
spair nnd grief , he hurried towards
him. But as he rushed bUndly for-
w41'd , ho stumbled and feU over anoth.
or prostrate form , and looking around
ho beheld a sight which congealed his
very blood and him tremble ,
for on every hand the dead were lying ,
whllo the Uvlng , panlc.stricken and
horrified , rushed wildly about and
filled the air with their crlos. It Wall
a sight to make the strongest man
faint and falter. The king paused for
but an Instant and then throwing him-
seU at the side of his dead son bo
called upon him to speak to him , to
say just ono word , and whcn tbore
came no response , he staggerel ( to his
teet , wringing his hands and calling
upon his gods to help , and cursing
Moses and his < rod with I1wful oaths.
At that moment a messenger 111lstlly
"Death ! Death ! Death , rules evory.
where ! " ho cried In a hlgh.pltched ,
horror.strlcken voice. "Eb"YPt has
been stricken. Hnste , 0 Phnraoh , send
Moses and his people forth , or wo beaU
aU dead men ! "
Helpless , hopeless , Pharaoh looked
about him. Could 110 do It ? The last
tlmo the lIebrow leader had appearod'
before him he bud told him he would
see his face no more , nd thnt If ho
did It would mean death to Moses , and
now InsteRcl death had strlcleen his
own home and the home of every Egyp.
lIan throughout the land. But oven
while he hesitated , the Jiving among
the dead about him cried Inslstontly
that Moses be called , and at last ho
Between the rows of dead Moses
passed up the palace hall and came and
stood before the great Phara.oh , who ,
with averted fuce and trembling
voice , exclahned :
"Rise up and get you forth from
among m ) ' people ; both yo and tbe
children of Isrnel : and go servo the
Lord as yo have said. " 110 paused.
"And how about our flocks and
herds ? " 1\Ioses alked.
"Yea , also trn < e your flocks and herds
as yo have salel , and bo gene : and
bless me also , " he added , biB volco
dropping to a whisper.
Without a word Moses turned and as
he left the palace the grlef.strlckon
I > eoplo thronged him and urged with
piteous crlel ! and pleadings tbat ho
