The first represents the wise men of the East offering tribute to the young Christ In the humble place of
His birth. The magi with a retiune of attendants behind them reverently bow In the presence of

the extreme right the Roman soldiers, are approaching led by Judas. The holiness of the scene
must be viewed in the original to be fully appreciated.
The third brings Christ before Pilate In the hall of judgment. Around the : room the! JJXhfioS

MR. WARREN, a graduate of the
