more nearly complete than ever before hero and In all ways tho work was the best over done in Berea Too much praise cannot be given Mr Rlg by for the work and skill which ho has put into the training of tho chorus and the orchestra both of which owe their increasing ability to him almost if not entirely as much as to their own hard work Lovers of music in Boron certainly owe to Mr rugby more than can cosily be stated Ifho soloists were as follows Mrs John D Bootes Soprano Miss Zoq Ullrich Contralto Mr Wm Griswold Smith Tenor and Mr George Nelson Holt Basso Thor were by long odds tho best that

and wealth they have worked but for thousands of years they failed There might be for a while PhilosophyIsame gave nor strength And the writings left ftvmthoae old days breathe only the spirit of a great longing or of despair For the men sought wrongly Happiness was looked for from those thimgs which please the senses Those who were able tried all that wealth could command and eye and ear taste and touch brain and nerve were seduced and flattered and indulgedwithout stint But each pleasure left on passing only an after taste of bitternesstThou way was secret came from one whose share of pleasure was the smallest And He did not teach happiness nor promise it His rule was iron hard Forget yourself Caro for others Seek nothing but to bo allowed to serve Sure lysaid those wise seekers after happiness this man is crazy and no one can follow out such foolish teaching The cost will be too great But some were that foolish And soon the wise men were astonished to eee that these foolish persons were happy as the wise men were not Tho foolish persons might not and often didnot have any of the things which men had always sought Still they were happy And as others tried tho same kind of life they too became happy Happiness was rare in those days and this caused much talk A happy life was about the first prominent mark of the followers of Christ And thus it was found that the much desired happiness could not be won by going directly after it but that it comes to each mon only as he gives of himself unselfishly for others I suppose the God that made man intended it to be that wayso that us men became wise they would also become good But at any rate men are so made that every selfish pleasure that can be devised grows after a while not only worthless but bitter and sickening Nothing that is selfish will give lasting comfort or leave a happy memoryonly unselfishness Cbristslid not come to bring happiness He bad moroimpor tant buisnoss Butthe happiness camo with him and it is here yet for any one who will seek it io the right way And so this winter I am wishing my friends a Merry Christmas in more words than usual because I hope that each will have at least a little of this real happinessEach can have it No one but yourself can prevent for it de pends on what you yourself do But also no one can givejt to you Your dearest friend or richest is helpless And there is no one of you too poor to earn this happiness or too sick or helpless In whatever place among whatever people you may spend the Day there will be many chances to apply the rule tho rule of Christs life the rule which does not promise happiness but gives it the rule of service and kindness And it you look about for chances they will be Forget yourself and as you give so shall it be given to you again And so I wish each one a Merry Christmas a real Christmas that will live long after the day dies a Christmas that will give to those about you more of the blessings which Christ came to spread a Christmas which will bring to you that happiness which men have always sought a Christmas somewhat worthy of Him whose name it bears OUR CHRISTMAS NUMBER The Joy ot Christmasthat Is the

has boon treating Washing ton to a curious spectacle this week It has been at work before Christmas for the first Who In the memory living men The work has not been very serious but it has been work and Congress will be In Just thatmuch better condition to do real business at ter It gots back here after Jan 1 Several appropriation bills have been taken up and progress has been made with them and what Is known as the Esch bill has been passed Also the Senate has taken up considerable work notably a plan for providing relief Bta tlons In the mining districts to aid the miners who may be Imprisoned as the result of accident The Important news of the week I If It Is true la that another agreement has been made between Taft Cannon and Aldrich The agreement Is said to be that tho latter gentlemen will assist the President In passing the law providing for Federal licenses for cor porations doing an interstate business with the government having great power over tho corporations to which I tho licenses are Issued The la said also to Include IlgrEementI Taft will not take sides A and will not expect too much in other ways from them This corporation license scheme hast retormIersto have it passed without any success The plan Is that the Government will I Issue licences to all corporations whlc do any business crossing state lines and will Imvo tho power to refuse such licenses In case that too corporation I applying for one does not suit It will have the power to look into i crooked methods of business and to prevent watering of otock so that tho possession of a license will be quite a guarantee of purity as the food law guarantee is But it is not I at all proposed to make the license compulsory so that there aro likely to be several corporations which will decide that they had rather be rich than pure and we may find that tho license keeps the good corporations good but does not interfere with tho bad ones However it will be Just as well to watt for the

orders from me Dlcltslo what do you mean 1 For Gods sake oure not going to try to ride Sho swept from tho room What happened afterward she could never recall Who got Jim for her or wheth er she got the horse up herself what was said to her In low kindly word of warning by the man at Jims neck when she sprang Into tho saddle who the man was she could not havo toll All sho felt at last was that sho was froo and out Under tho block sky nitb I tho rain beating her burning taco and her horse leaping fearfully Into tho windNo mancould have kept the trail to tho pass that night The horse took It as U tho path flashed In sunshine and swung into the familiar stride that had carried her so many times over the SO miles ahead of thorn The storm driving Into Dlcksles face cooled her pvery moment she recollected herself better and before her mind all the aspects ot her venture ranged themselves She bad set herself to a race and against her rode tho hardest rider In tho mountains Sho had set herself to what few men on tho range would have dared and what no other woman on the range could do A gust drove Into her taco They were already at the head of tho pass and the horse with level ground underfoot was falling Into the long reach but the wind was colder DIckslo lowered her heed and gave Jim tho rein She realized bow wet oho was her feet and her knees wore wet She had no protection but her skirt though the meanest rider on all her countless acres would not havo braved a mile on such a night without leather and fur The great lapels of her riding jacket reversed were but toned tight across her shoulders and tho double fold of fur lay warm nod dry against her heart and lungs but her hands were cold and her skirt dragged leaden and cold from her waist and water soaked In upon her chilled toot She bocamo conscious of bow that she was going Instinct mado keen by thousands of saddle miles told DIckslo of her terrific pace She wILl riding faster than she would havo dared go at noonday and without thought or fear of accident In spite of tho sliding and tho plunging down tho long hill the storm and the dark ness brought no thought of fear for herself her only fear was for those ahead In supreme moments a horse like a man when human efforts become superhuman puts the lesser dan gore out of reckoning and the facul ties set on a single purpose though strained to the breaking point never break Low In her saddle Dlckilo tried to reckon how far they had come and bow much lay ahead She could feel her skirt stiffening about her knees and the rain beating at her face was sharper she knew tho elect as It stung her cheeks and knew what noxt was coming the snow There was no need to urge Jim He bad the rein and Dlcksla bont down to speak to him as she often spoke when they were alone on the road when Jim bolting almost threw her Recovering Instantly she know they wero no longer alone She rose alert In her seat Her straining eyes could see nothing Was there a sound In the wind She held her breath to apprehenJim r screamed In an agony of terror Sho know then that she had passed anoth er rider and so close she might have touched hlji Fear froze her to the saddle it lent wings to her horse The speed be came wild DIckslo knit herself to her dumb companion and a prayer choked in her throat She crouched lest a bullet tear her from her horse but through the darkness no bullet came only tho sleet stinging her face stiffening her gloves freezing tier hair chilling her limbs and weighting her like lead on her struggling horso She knew not oven Sinclair could overtake her nowthat no living man could lay Traveler Green Gardens of Damascus Rest the Eye After Long Journey Through the The chief attractions at Damascus aro the worldfamed gardens which

Action Is Acclaimed by People with Shouts for United States and Estrada Sends Message to Assembly Managua Nicaragua President Zelaya has resigned He sent his resignation as chief executive to the national congress of tho Nicaraguan republic on Thursday Five deputies were appointed im mediately upon the receipt of tho resignation to draft a bill looking to Its acceptance which Is now consid ered a mere formaflty Accompanying his resignation Ze laya sent the following message to congressTho painful circumstances Into which the country is plunged call for acts of abnegation and patriotism on the part of good citizens who are the witnesses of the oppression of the republic by the heavy hand of fate Tho country is staggering under a shameless revolution which threatens tho nations sovereignty and a foreign nation unjustly intervenes in our af fairs publicly providing the rebels with arms which has only resulted I In their being defeated everywhere through the heroism of our troops To avoid further bloodshed and for the reason that the revolutionists have declared that they would put down their arms when I surrendered the ex ecutive power I hereby place in the hands of the national assembly tho abandonment of the remainder of my term of office which Is to be filled by a substitute of their choosing with tho hope that this will result in good to Nicaragua the reestablishment of peace and particularly the suspension of the hostility of tho United States to which I do not wish to give a pretext for Intervention News of the presidents action spread throughout the city and soon great crowds moved through the streets shouting for tio United States Estrada and the revolution Apparently there was no other course for Zelaya to take The people were aroused The guns of tho revolu tionists threatened Tho warships of the United States lay in Nicaraguan portsManagua has been seething for days The spirit of revolt has spread even to the gates of the palace Zelaya sur rounded himself with an armed guard Unchecked the people have marched through the streets crying for the end of tho old proclaiming the new regime Who will take up the reins no one knows nor cares There is no doubt that congress will act quickly on his resignationDr Madrlz judge ot tho Central American court of justice at Cartago who has been close to Zelaya and Is now his choice for president Is on his way here Madrlz has his following strong and Influential even among tho revolution ists but Gen Estrada under whose command the great body of fighting Insurgents now face Vasquezs troops at Rama will have none of him Estradas word will bear weight In the choice of president Zelaya has known too that Madrlz Is not acceptable to the United States and ho has sought to learn who would be looked upon with favor by that government as his successor but the American government so far as can be learned has named no man and tho choice probably will lie with those who have gained

it The collapse occurred suddenly and at a moment when the doctors seem ingly had had the greatest hopes for his recovery Apparently the drainage of tho wound was perfect as no fever was present and during the day the king had been able to take nourishment The public at large was satisfied that the king was on the road to re covery but within the pavilion where the king lay there was a feeling of anxiety chiefly because of Leopolds groat age After a restful day the patient was able to sleep for a brief period early in the evening and the night passed quietly But towards two oclock alarming symptoms appeared Suddenly tho king turned and called to Dr Thlrlar I am suffering Dr Do Page was summoned and tbo two physicians did everything possi ble to prolong life but without avail The end

Some persons have been unkind enough to say that all the American officials go to church on Christ mas because the fact Is very apt to pet into the news papers and It reads well at home The majority of the Central American and South American diplomats torn pcrarily resident In Washington are nominally at tenet good churchmen and they attend service as a matter of training and as a matter of course Practically all the women from tho Latln American countries are religiously devout and with them church going on Christmas Is a matter of duty that Is not to be neglected under any clr cumstanccs No child is allowed to miss church and the result itf that all the capital city temples of worship are well filled on the feast day President Tart always has been a regular attendant at cburch and his service going slnco he became president establishes no precedent Mrs Taft end the children are Episcopalians while the president Is a Unitarian and so it Is that Sundays and other church days are the only days In the year that the family becomes In a sense di vided Tho president attends service nt tho Unitarian church of All Souls of which the Rev U O D Pierce is tile pastor Mrs Taft and tho children are regular at tendantn at St Johns Episcopal church which In years past was attended by so many presidents of tho United States that It camo to bo known eeml Jocosely as tho Church of State Mrs Roosevelt and her children also attended St Johns on Sundays and Christmas days while Mr Roosevelt went to the little German Reformed church on Fifteenth street and rarely missed a service This Christmas season tho majority of tho members of both houses of congress are In the capital city Time jwns and not so long ago that senators and represent hives took their families nnd went home to spend the holiday season but now for financial reasons the na tional legislators In the main elect to stay In Washing ton for their holiday making Prior to the passage of the last railroad rate bill most of the members of con gress had parses on the railroads Now they have to pay their way when they travel and for those who live at a distance from Washington this means a considerable ex pendlturo of money in case they desire to go homo at f ChristmasEvery of tbo White House Is given a Christ mas turkoy by tho president This Is a custom of many years standing and only onco or twice has It been broken Tho clerks In tbo departments and there arc many thousands of them not only get a Christmas holiday but are allowed to leave their work at noon on tho day previ ous In order that they may do their Christmas shopping Tho lot of the department clerk in Washington Is not n bard one ns far as the matter of holidays is concerned Every employe Is given a months leave on full pay In each year and Is allowed another month to bo SIM In This last statement means of course only that If an em ploye Is III ho or rho receives ful pny for ono month on receipt of ibo physlclant certificate that the Illness has been real The clerIcs get sever or eight holidays each year and these taken In connection with the months leave and with the fact that the hours of work number only seven and a half each day make tho laboring condl ion of the department clerk fairly comfortable Washingtons Christmas Is always n green Christmas even If there Is snow on tho ground for In thl latitude there ore many trees and shrubs that hold Ur leaves and theM color all through the year As a matter ot fact thoro Is rarely any snow In tho cspltnl city that Is worthy of tho name AM

studied the winter birds always with an eye sharpened to the possibility of finding some species that was taro President Taft loves nature too In a way but ho Is not much of a tramper excepting where tho walk leads over the golf links on which ho spends his holiday afternoons Christmas included for in Washington because of tho comparative mildness of tho climate tho game of golf Is possible nearly every day in tho year Thorn are several hundred officers ot the army and na vy stationed In Washington most of them being detailed for office work In the departments for a term of four years The naval officers perhaps enjoy their holiday making In tho capital more than do their brothers of the army for tho sailors have been compelled to spend many Christmases at sea away from their wives and families while hero they may gather their families about them and not break any sea regulations In so doing Tho army officer whether ho goes to the Philippines or to some distant frontier post ordinarily takes his family with him and so Christmas day docs not to him neces sanity bring with It the sense of loneliness and homesick ness that It brings to the man at sea In the biological survey which is a bureau of the de partment of agrlculturo thorn are many scientists at work Most of these men have spent a laude part of their lives In the wilds studying birds and mammals and shells plants and fishes to say nothing of reptiles The office life is irksome to these scientists They belong to tho free air the barren plains nnd the pine forests So It Is that on every holldy that brings with It a release from office cares they take to tho open fields About the hills In many places about Washington on Christmas day there are to bo seen tho little camp fires of the scientists who pro cooking their midday Christmas dinners under tho open sky Some tlmo ago all the bird students in the United States were asked If they could to make a trip afield on Christmas day and to make a list of the birds that they found Thousands of bird lovers followed tho suggestion and pro still following It Each one of tho students turns In a report to a central headquarters giving tho names ot the birds that on Christmas day toll under his observa tion As a result of this practice the Washington sci entist have many valuabo notes concerting out of sea son cords For instance the report came to Washington on a Christmas or two ago that on the holiday four mocking birds were seen and positively Identified In the fields near Boston Mass Other birds were reported from other northern localities birds that In tho ordinary course of things ought to have been far south of the Ma Plltl1roson and Dix on line So it Is that a Washington Christ mas day Idea has been made to serve the ends of science- It has been said that In years past a great many of the senators and repre sentatives In congress went home to spend the holidays but that now tho practice largely has passed An exception should be mode for the past and tho present as well In tho cases of those senators and members who have In charge legislation which has been proposed in bill form at the opening of the session of congress When bills are Introduced they are at once referred to com mittees and if tho measures are of im portance tho chair men of the commit tees to which they havo been sent make sY yN CT THE JAPANESE AMBASSADOR 3U0 a study of them in order that their merits and demerits may be determined In some cases this means long and continued study and It is not at all an unusual thing to find a committee chairman giving over the joys of the homo Ute on Christmas day to precedents and to formulate arguments to be used for or against some proposed legislation nnd to find him doing this In the seclusion of a stuffy office room on Christmas day A good many Washington people especially those who came here from the south go over into Virginia to hunt on Chilstmas day In parts of the Old Dominion fox hunting Is still tho order of the winter day and if tho fox is not in evidence there are always rabbits and quail while on tho lower Potomac and in the marshes along bay in open winters the ducks nnd tho geese are fairly abundant The outdoor life appeals strongly to tho southerner and in many cases tho northerners who have come to tho Potomac country have formed the hunting habit and Join tho Christmas day parties of their southern cousins Christmas is tho great holiday of Washington From high to low tho people make tho most of It There Is good cheer everywhere evident and charity

New York who knows a preseplo by sight Yet tho preseplo is the sign of tho Latin Christ mas as tho fir tre is of tho northern The manger of tho Barclay street windows shows only tho inside ol tho stable with tho and the cattle done In Italian ter- ra cotta But tho real prceeplo In Its native land may show the whole as well and If tho pilgrims wending their way to tho manger are good Sicilian peas ants bearing good Sicilian wine and cheese on their lonkcys they are only the more Interesting- St Francis born In tho quaint little town of Assist nmong tho brown Umbrian hills tu 1182 Invented the preseplo to make the Christmas story plain to the simple Illiterate common people During the 800 years since It has remained a favorite devotion In Latin Europe The Italian and Spanish call It the

away but In conservative Sicily people still make the proseplo every year KB they dress Christmas trees in New York All over tho island R families are busy from December 1 to 16 patting their old preseplos In order or making new ones and there is much calling toand fro to compare results and admire new and elaborate specimens of the art The preseplo may be a little thing on a stand in ono corner or It may occupy tho whole side of a room It may represent a whole mountain side made of the rough flexible bark or tho cork tree Peaks crags and precipices abound with winding trails houses and castles of colored cardboard forests ot twigs and sometimes tiny pipes to furnish brooks and lakes In the center Is the grotto with the holy family within A sky of blue paper Is stretched above with the Star of Bethlehem con spicuous and over the hills como the shepherds bearing tho gifts to the babe Spain like Sicily has never lost the preseplo and in both Spanish and Sicilian cities there are booths for the sale of miniature shepherds magi and all the accessories of the art In France the creche Is not made at homo as in the southern countries but It used to be a part of the Christmas decorations of every French church and Is still E so In the rural districts Many a polished cosmopolite ot if Paris can remember working busily for days before Christmas In his childhood to help freshen up and reJu- venate the creche of his parish church In some little vil lage of France In tho villages close by Paris today children who go about tho streets singing Christmas enrol t carry a

had to be done that It was within a week of Christmas before we were able to take any thought for the Christmas dinner The winter set In late that year and there had been comparatively little cold weather but one day thelce on the river had boon sufficiently strong to enable Ulto haul up a wagonload of flour with enough salt pork to last through the winter and a very few tins of canned goods to be used at special feasts We had some bUlhel1I of potatoes the heroic struggle for existence In which the rest of our garden vegetables had sue cumbed to drought frost and grasshoppers and we also had some wild plums and dried elk venison But we had no fresh meat and so one day my foreman and I agreed to make a hunt on the morrow Accordingly one of the cowboys rode out in the frosty afternoon to fetch in the saddleband from the pla teau three miles off where they were grazing It was after sunset when he returnedIt necessary to get to the hunt- Ing grounds by sunrise and It still lacked a couple of hours of dawn when the foreman wakened me as I lay asleep beneath the buffalo robes Dressing hurriedly and breakfasting on a cup of coffee and some mouth full of bread and Jerked elk meat we slipped out to the barn threw the saddles on the horse and were off The air was bitterly chill the cold I had been severe for two days so that the river Ice would again bear horses Beneath the light covering of pow dery snow we could feel the rough ground like wrinkled Iron under the horses hoofs There was no moon but the stars shone beautifully doWBIthrough the cold clear air willing horses galloped swiftly across I the long bottom on which the ranch house stood threading their way deftly among the clumps ot sagebrush- A I mile off we crossed the river the Ice cracking with noises like pistol shots as our horses picked their way gingerly over It On tho opposite side was a dense Jungle of bull berry bushes and on breaking through this we found ourselves galloping up a long winding valley which led back many miles Into the hills The cran nies and little side ravines were filled with brushwood and groves of stunt ed ash By this time there was a faint flush of gray In the eat and as we rode silently along we cpuld make out dimly the tracks made by the wild animals as they had passed and re passed In the snow Several times we dismounted to examine them A We Dismounted to Examine Them couple of coyotes possibly frightened by our approach had trotted and loped up the valley ahead of us leav ing a trail like that of two dogs the sharper more delicate footprints of a fox crossed our path and outsldo one long patch of brushwood a series of round Imprints in the snow betrayed whore a bobcatas plainsmen term the small lynxhad been lurking around to try to pick up a rabbit or a prairie fowl As the dawn reddened and It became light enough to see objects some little way off we began to sit erect In our saddles and to scan the hill sides sharply for sight of feeding doer Hitherto wo had seen no deer tracks eave Inside the bullberry bushes by the river and we knew that tho deer that lived In that Impenetrable Jun gle were cunning whitetails which in such a place could bo hunted only by aid of a hound But Just before sun ruse we came on three lines of heart qNNRTlV 1 SfCH Ta labORE ZOO SZV27shaped footmarks in the snow which showed where as many deer had Just crossed a little plain ahead of us They were walking leisurely and from the lay of the land we believed that we should find them over tho ridge where there was a brush coulee Riding to ono side of tho trail we topped the little ridge Just as the sun flamed up a burning ball of crimson beyond the snowy waste at our backs Almost immediately afterwards companion leaped from his horse mI Turning to Qo Into the Log House raised his rifle and as he pulled the trigger I saw through the twigs of a brush patch on our loft tho erect startled head of a young black tallod doe as she turned to look at us her great mulellko ears thrown forward The ball broke her neck and she turned a complete somersault down- i hill while a sudden smashing of un dcrbrush told of the tight of her terrified companions We both laughed and called out dinner as we sprang down toward her and In a few minutes she was dressed and hung up by the hind legs on a small ash tree The entrails and viscera we threw off to ono side after carefully poisoning them from a little bottle of strychnine which I had In my pocket Almost every cat tloman carries poison and neglects no chanco of leaving Qut wolf bait for the wolves are sources of serious loss to the unfenced and unhoused flocks and herds In this Instance we felt particularly revengeful because It was but a few days since we had lost a fine yearling heifer Tim tracks on the hillside where the carcass lay when we found It told the story plainly The wolves two In number bad crept up close before being dig covered and had then raced down on the astounded heifer almost before the could get fairly started One brute had hamstrung her with a snap of his viselike Jaws and once down she was torn open In a twinkling- No sooner was the sun tip than a warm west wind began to blow In our faces The weather had suddenly changed and within an hour the snow was beginning to thaw and to leave patches of bare ground on the hill sides We left our coats with our horses and struck off on foot for a group of high buttes cut up by the cedar canyons and gorges In which we knew the old bucks loved to He It was noon before we saw anything more We lunched at a clear spring not needing much time for all we had to do was to drink a draught of Icy water and munch a strip of dried venison Shortly afterward as we wore moving along a hillside with si lent caution we came to a sheer can yon of which the opposite face was broken by little ledges grown up with windbeaten cedars As we peeped over tho edge my companion touched my arm and pointed silently to one of the ledges and instantly I caught the glint of a bucks horns as ho lay half behind an old tree trunk A slight shift of position gave me a fair shot slanting down between his shoulders and though ho struggled to his foot ho did not go 50 yards after receiving tho bullet This was all we could carry Lead Ing the horses around we packed the buck behind my companions saddle and then rode back for tho doe which I put behind mine But wo were not destined to reach home without a slight adventure When we got to the river we rode boldly on tho Ice heedless of the thaw and about mid way thero was a sudden tremendous crash and men horses and deer were scrambling together In the water amid slabs of floating Ice However It was shallow and no worse results followed than some hard work and n chilly bath But what cared weT We wero returning trlumphnvt with our Christ mas dinner x r Deathand LifeiA VMH at Cftnttmat Sj CLINTON DANGERFIELD 1 i INwhat he really was unmerciful exacting swift to demand obedience to a thousand laws swift to punish with the keen sword of pala whoa those laws were broken His eyes were the eyes of a war lord his hand as cold as ironand as strongThe tasks he set were many FewIot those were to the liking of the children of men though some thinkers perceived that out of these heavy tasks came strength also that If one wrestled with them stoutly ono might even master Life himself and compel him to graciousness Now the other power Death was a woman Tall she was but so perfectly formed that her height was BO blem ish Sleepyeyed she was but her slow sweet smile WM so Infinitely tender and lovely that la the midst of their tasks men stopped to gaze on her as she passed At last one of the young men fol lowed her She spoke to himher IIvoice being that unspeakable music which not even a violin can outslng and the young man returned Into the fields of Life no more Then a little child weary of flower gathering pulled at her garments hem and all the workers held their breath waiting to see what Death would do for Life had painted her la very evil colors But Death lifted the child and laid her on her own deep bosom and sane to her As she sang the child slept and as exquisite smile lingered on Its lips as hough Its visions were very fair Then Death held out tbe child that the workers might see and cried Oh ye who labor besot with un ending toll see ye how I have blessed the chlldT Never more shall the beat ot summer vex her nor the cold of winter I have made her deaf to per row and unmoved by the vibrations yo call Joy Forever shall her brow go unwrinkled and because she hath chosen me I will give her the key to Heavens Immortal gates And a worker cried Ye have blessed the child because she was your chosen onot The cry was a question Said Death dreamily As I gave the child peace so would 1 give It to all who come to metrusting me whollyl Looking out across the blazing fields she stretched her rounded armIJand cried Ye are all mlnol of souls am II And with one accord they threw down their tools and followed her Into a far land beyond the domain of Life Now Life was vexed exceedingly by the unfinished task lie went straightway to the lord and coipu Sod how Death had led away part of his worn ersAnd the Lord sent a great white angel unto the remainder anal forbade them through the angel to hearkea unto Death until they could serve Life longerFor Lord knew that the stern dominion of Life must be for the sake of the men he hoped to complete nut only a few a very lew of the children of men obeyed the angel Let Death but pass the toilers and her beauty was so great they continued to desert their posts and follow after herThen Life cried unto the Lord with a great voice Death seduces my servants And the Lord said Deal with Death as thou wilt Therefore Lire seized on Death and cut away her perfumed locks and put on her a painted mask most hideous to behold And he sealed the lips Death saying tIne thou dumb and ofIthou no longer known as a woman With this he cast over Deaths won palland i This Is the King of Terrors Then he sent Death forth and there after whenever she came near the workers they fled from her and cried aloud unto Life Matters not how hard thy tasks oh dear Lire If thou wilt but save ua from this frightful Death j And Life said unto the Lord I Have I not done well I And he answered In exceeding sorrow I j Needs must thy work on Death stand And this because of the weak ness of men who were seduced by her beauty and who heeded not my an gels voice Yet very differently had I planned for my peoplo For In the beginning I set the loveliness of Death plainly before them that they might endure their tasks happily knowing how sweet the end would boonut they have defeated my wisdom On their own heads bo HI And Life went his way satisfied Thereafter when a child or man be came useless to him ho cast It Into the arms of Death because Its task was finished And the soul of Death sang to the soul of the mortal given her though her lips were dumb and sho blessed It fJ with an infinite blessing and bore it away Out the toilers mourned greatly that Death should have dominion over ono of their number and they turned the more desperately to Life who smiledxsternly and was content J- 7r
