Ancient Works of Art Recently Brought
to Light at Athens.
The unique series of ancient sepul
chral reliefs which have been brought
to light by excavations in the Cerame
icus, the public cemetery of ancient
Athens, have two interests, at any rate,
which it would be hard to exaggerate.
For one thing, many of them are extra
ordinarily beautiful for another, they
illustrate as nothing else does eeitain
aspects of Athenian life and civilization
at a period when Athens was still one
of the great powers of Greece. Natur.
ally, these reliefs are exceedingly vari.
ous, both in date and workmanship and
character. Some of them are archaic
and stiff and formal. Others, again,
easily distinguishable, are simply bits
of bad work. But a large number are
full of the most exquisite beauty and
pathos, and it is chiefly of these that
we wish to speak. In a great number
of cases the aitist has chosen for repre
sentation on these monuments the last
farewells between the dying person
and the survivors. Evidently this was
form of sepulchral
it admits of thethat
far more delicate
pathos than any
other form. Thero are reliefs repre
senting the last farewells between hus
band and wifer between father and son,
between mother and daughter, between
friends. Sometimes the representation
is allegorical. A lady takes her last
look at her casket of jewels, which
stand allegorically for the pleasant
world to which she is saying farewell,
and the. relief is saved from all charge
of triviality b} the exquisite sadness of
the lady's face. Of course it must not
be supposed that all the best reliefs
represent these farewells. One of the
most famous, erected to Dexileos, rep
resents him as a victorious warrior in
battle, slaying his foe. Still, what we
have said is a true geuoial description.
Now, in oider properly to appreciate
the spirit of these grave monuments,
we must remember that to the Greek
death was necessarily far more terrible
than it is to us. In the nature of
things, he could have no "sure hope of a
glorious resurrection." Whatever may
have been the exact conception of death
current among the average Athenians
of, say, the fourth century B. wepalace
know that they considered it "the su
preme evil." Very few people indeed
could have been convinced by Sociates'
famous argument to his friends after
his trial that it must, after all, be reck
oned to be a good thing. To the ancient
Greeks it was not only a dreadful myg.
tery it was the final parting ftom all
that they heh dear, from their families,
from their friends, from life itself. It
still had all its bitterness. Nothing
could have been keenei than th$ grief
which it excited.Spectator.

Downington Archive: A beautiful
little girl was noticed about the rail
road station in this borough the other
day who was full of life and anima
tion and vhose efforts seemed to be
mischievously directed in hiding from
her father, who in reply to a question
said the little girl had been his travel
ing companion ever since she was
nine months old and had never been
sick, although constantly exposed to
the many changes incident to a life
on the rail. He said he lived at Fort
Wayne, Indiana, and his business was
that of a car-tracer. He traveled in
every direction in search of lost cars
and was liable to be ordered off at
a moment's notice. After a search of
many days ho had just found one of
the Fort Wayne cars on a siding near
the Chester Valley Station. The little
girl was only three years and eight
months old. Her mother was power
less to control the child, and as soon as
she heard her father had been ordered
off she picked up her little satchel to be
ready for the journey. They were
privileged to board any train, whether
limited,accommodation,local or freight,
and if they could not find quarters in
the cabin of the latter they rode on the

'Prescription,' five of the 'Discov-

gan to improve under the use of your medicine, and my strength
came back. My difficulties have all disappeared, lean work hard

I began using the medicine 1 could scarcely walk across the room,
most of the time, and I did not think I could ever feel well again.
I have a little baby girl eight months old. Although she is a little
delicate in size ana appearance, she is healthy. I give your reme
dies all the credit for curing me, as I took no other treatment after
beginning their use. I am very grateful for your kindness, and
thank God and thank you that I am as well as I am after years
