At the celebration in Melbourne
of tho second anniversary of tha
establishment of the Salvation
Army, Colonel Booth said that tho
revenue of the Army in Victoria now
amounted to 27,000, compared
with 10,000 tho previous year.
They had 11 freehold buildings,
affording sitting accommodation for
11,000, and 14 hired buildings, in
which sitting accommodation was
provided for 20,200. Thero wero
32 corps, averaging about 250 mem
bers each. Over 500 chronic slaves
of drink had been reformed by the
Army in Victoria, and 400 fallen
women had become inmates of tho
"homes" founded and maintained
by the Army.
Many of the yarns and curious
customs narrated by the patient
and omnivorous Herodotus have be
come very common property, like the
story of Solon and Croesus, but
others are not so well known. Hero
dotus especially commends a prac
tice of the Babylonian villages in
regard to marriage. He says once a
year the handsome girls were put up
to be bid off in marriage at a good
price, the handsomest first, the
second-best next, and so on, the
bidder in each case giving a bond to
carry out a marriage contract; as
soon as all the girls who would bring
a premium were disposed of, the
authorities took the proceeds and
added it as a dowry to tho ill
favored maidens, who then mounted
the block and were disposed of in
the same manner, the bidders nam
ing the smallest sum they would
take as an inducement to marry the
patties under the hammer. Thus all
procured husbands. Herodotus
gravely observes that this was "the
wisest" of all the Assyrian regula
tions; tho next wisest was their ar
rangement for treating disease. They
employed no doctors, but a sick
person had his bed taken down to
the market-place, and passers-by
were expected to stop and inform
the patient if they had had a similar
disease and how it was cured. Pro
bably the open air and change of
scene generally effected a vspeedy
cure. There is a very entertaining
story of King Rampsinitus and the
wonderful thief whom the king so
much admired that he finally gave
him his daughter in marriage. In
2500 years we have gained a point
where we have barely escaped a
similar distribution of public honors.
