every English reader thi? etupend
work of more than two h- ' .ed y?
of scholars' labors in elucidating
Scripture. They have fairly won
gratitude of the English public.
These men do not claim inspir?t

Revising the Old Testament.
Home Changea Made iu Familiar
Among the lighter touches of tb
revision of the Old Testament ar
those which occur in the well know
passage which is here given aa rt
vised: "But I hnow that my Rn
deemer liveth, and that He shall stan*
up at the last upon the earth, and al
ter my skin has been thus destroyed
yet from my flesh shall I see God
whom I shall see for myself and min
eyes shall behold and not another.'
Another well known passage in Ec
clesiastes becomes : " Remember uls<
thy Creator in the days of thy youth
or ever the evil day come or the year
draw nigh when thou shalt say I havi
no pleasure in them." The chang?
here is, "remember also" for "remem
ber now," with another variation, "o;
ever the evil daya come" for "whib
the evil dave come not."
The witch of Endor now etea ooh
"a god," not "gods," ascending. It
Proverbs "a naughty person" be
comee "a worthless person." " Win?
is a mocker, strong drink is raging,'
becomes " Wine is a mocker, Btrcng
drink a brawler." The subatitutioc
of modern words for archaic expres
sion have only taken place where the
expressions are not only obsolete, but
to the public unintelligible. " Coat
of mail," for instance, is substituted
for "brigandine." For the word
?? cockatrice," there is given " basi
lisk," with "adder" aa the marginal
In the fifth commandment, " Honor
thy father and thy mother that thy
days may be long in the land which
the Lord thy God giveth thee," be
comes "Honor thy father and thy
mother that thy days may be long up
on the land which the Lord thy God
The following are examples in which
the actual taak of revieioa i-i distinct
ly seen : Authorized version-Gene
sis xiii, 14, "In the mount of the
Lord it shall be sean;" revised ver
sion, "In the mount of the Lord it
shall be provided." Authorized ver
eion-Exodua xiv., 20, " And it waa
a clond and a darkness to them, but
it gave light by night to these." Re
viaed, "And there waa the cloud and
the darkneea, yet gave it light by
night." Authorized, Job xx xi, 35,
w Behold, my deaire ia that the Al
mighty would answer me." Revised,
" Lo, here ie my sign above, let the
Almighty anawer me." Authorized, j
Job xxx vi, J S, " Beware, lest be take
thee away from his stroke." Revised,
" Beware, lost thou be led away with
thy sufficiency." Authorized, Psalm
lxviii, 4, " Extol him that rideth upon
the heavens." Revised, "Cast up a
highway for him that rideth through
the deserts." Authorized-Psalm
lxviii, 19, "Blessed be the Lord, who
daily loadeth us benefits." Revised,
" Blessed be the Lord, who daily bear
eth our burdens."
Isaiah xi, 3, authorized, " The voice
of him that crieth io the wilderness,
prepare ye the way of the Lord."
Revised, "The voice of one that cri
etb, prepare ye in the wildemees the
way of the Lord."
Io all these cases, as in many oth
ers, there seems to have been a strong
minority among the revisers which
held ont for the alternative readings
and succeeded in putting them in the
margin, which contains most of the
ucholarship of the revision. Th first
verse in both the authorized and re
vised versions is the same. The first
alteration occurs in the second verse,
where, instead of, "And the earth
was without form and void," we read,
"And the earth was waste and void.1'
The text of the story cf the Creation
is without other striking variations.
The same may be said of the descrip
tion of the fall and of the flood. In
the ten commandments are some ver
bal alterations, the most striking be
ing that the sixth, " Thou ?halt not
kill" (Exodus xx, lo,) becomes, "Thou
shalt do*no murder."
The connection of America with
the revision remains to be noted. It
is explained as follows in the preface:
"The revisers had already made some
progress, and had, in fact, gone twice
through the Pentateuch before they
secured the co operation of tne Ameri
can Old Testament Revieion company.
The first revision of the several books
was submitted to the consideration of
the American revisers, and, except in
the case of the Pentateuch, the Eng
lish company had the benefit of their
criticism and suggestions before they
proceeded to the eecond revision. This
second revision was in a like manner
forwarded to America, and the latest
thoughts of the American revisers
were iu the hands of the English com
pany at their final review. In every
instance the suggestions fr.">m Ameri
ca were treated with the same con
sideration as those from the members
of the E?giieh company, and were
adopted or rejected on their merits."
The preface adds that those points on
which there was ultimate disagree
ment are placed on record in the ap
pendix, filling sixteen pages. The
American emendations so recorded
are chiefly directed towards modern
izing the translation by the omission
of obsolete forms, th of language
The Greatest Responsibility Parentage
One would naturally suppose the*
the care of children would be the firut
thoughtjjf ?i?^^^*?r???*Tfuerea8 in*j
many case^teeTnTs as . il" the first
thought were rather to escape that I
burden-although the responsibility
may never be shirked without penalty
-delegating it to hired and indiffer
ent hands and heads, often ignorant,
often incompetent, without reflecting
that it demands not only the love and
tenderness .such as no alien can fur
nish, but that tho wisest mind is not
too wise for the task, nor the most
cultured intellect too well trained or
too brilliant to cope with the subject,
to fit the human soul for its sphere
and its work, for development of its
transcendent powers. The person
who engaging a nursery maid re
marked by way of preface, that neither
he nor his "wife kne* any thing about
the care of their children, nor did
they wish to know," only frankly ac
knowledged the deplorable condition
of mind of many, and certainly had
no business to have the bright faces of
children about his hearth.
One wonders if he treated any
other cf his possessions with such un
concern. Those wdio regard their
children as their chief occupation in
life, und who love that occupation
can hardly understand the state of
mind of mothers who a<-cept every
excuse for turning ' .em efl' upon
whoever will take ,? charge, careless
of the''-..,, J, they may meet from
the unguarded and untaught speech
of servants or gamin-mothers who
love their own ease and pleasure bet
I ter than the souls of their sons and
daughtero'whofiud nodelightin watch
ing the unfolding of a human intel
lect, and whose minds are too narrow
to appreciate the self-hbnegation of
wiser mothers, whom they look upon
as slow specimens of the race of
women, old fogies with domestic pro
clivities too strongly developed, be
ings without a thought or aspiration
beyond the clean faces and clothes of
their brood, without a proper sense of
the sphere of woman, which in their
view seems to consist merely in dressing
and gossiping, flattering and being
Mattered by the other sex.
People take infinite care of their
homes, their land, their clothes, but
they too often leave their children,
their most valuable possessions, upon
whoae welfare and progresa the race
depende, to t?ke care of themselves,
unaware or heedless of the greatintei
est at stake, and deaf to all admonition.
A child's mind is plastic,ready to re
ceive every or any imp;eseion, and it
?B the parents who have the power to
dictate what these impressions shall
be". When a child learna lying and
thieving or any evil, it is generally
the father and mother who deserve
the punishment for these offenses.
They received the precious gift ol an
untutored mind into their keeping,
and if they have neglected it have
chosen to waste their energies on less
er themes, on the vanities of the
world and the flesh, they haye so
the wind and will reap the whirl wit

Tl>a Crematorium at Milan.
A Description of the Method of Incin?
ation Employed There.
The irematorium stands.at the I
end of the grounds, a building i
large nor high, but, with its crescei
shaped open atrium of white marb

On the frieze is this inscriptio
"Tempio Crematorio per volonta <
Alberto Heller erott e donato alla ca

entrance is a handsome medallion
Albert Keller, who was duly cremat
in the temple of his own providii
Many portions of the wall are mark
off in small tablets inscribed with t
names of the persons whose bod
have undergone cremation, and wh(
ashes, in many cases repose in an u
or small vessel in a niche behind t
tablet. Ashes they are not, propel
speaking. I was shown about a cour
of handfuls of white bleached hoi
in bits not larger than one's finger
all that remaitsd, as I learned, aft
the cremation of the body of a m
some ten stone in weight.
Other spaces have been appropri?t
by the intending cremators, and ha
the word "Aesegnato" inscribed
them. Through a small door you pi
from the atrium into what I may c
scribe as the operating room, in t
middle of which stands the enclos
furnace, looking much like an e
larged edition of the family laund
copper. The fire is kindled at t
back of the furnace, and when at t
proper moment released by the u
lifting of iron shutters, comes roani
through two large orifices, and quic
ly fills the whole of the space whe
lies^the prey. The body-il cadaver
ae the attendant called it, seeming
take great delight in repeating t
words-dressed in a light linen
woolen Bhroud, or other costume,
taken from the shell In which it h
been brought, aud laid on a mart
slab, thence transferred to a lar
iron tray, which is borne to the mou
of the furnace and laid on a fran
which by the action of a winch,
wound into the interior with its bu
den. The iron door is then close
the shutters, as described above, a
raised, and the furnace, to use i
American expression, is literally
full blast. At the end of two hou
the operation is complete, ai d all th
there remains of what was once
man, full of "blood, bones, marro
passion, feeling," are
"Two handfuls of white dust shut in i
urn of brasa.".
The system at present in use
that of Paolo Gprini ; it takes, as
have said, two hours and the coi
sumption of 300 kilogrammes of woe
and 25 kilogrammes of charcoal. Tl
cost of everything, including tl
mural tablet, is 94 francs. A ne

In this place, which was p?rfectl
sweet, clean and wholesome, withoi:
the faintest trace of hnything caler
lated to offend the dense of sight c
smell, there are eighteen or twent
cases of cremation every month. The
are, the attendant Hd me, decidedl
on the increase, and were the choler
scare again to appear, he had no doubt
from what he had heard, that th
practice would hav? large numbers c
adherents. Already bodies for crema

when I thought of all the horrors o

whom everybody knows as tho successful

Now York on board a ship going around Cape
Horn, in tbe early days of emigration to Cal
ifornia, he learned that one of the officers of
the vessel had cured himself, daring the voy
age, of an obstinate disease by the usc of
Since then Mr. LELAND has recommended
AVER'S SARSAPARILLA in many similar
cases, and he has never yet heard of its fail
ure to effect a radical cure.
Some years ago one of Mr. LELAND'S farm
laborers bruised bis leg. Owing to the bad
state of his blood, an ugly scrofulous swelling
or lump appeared on the injured limb. Hor
rible itching of tbe skin, with horning sad
darting pains through the lamp, mads Ufa
almost intolerable. The leg became enor
mously enlarged, and running ulcers formed,
discharging great quantities of extremely
offensive matter. No treatment was of any
ava ir until the man, by Mr. LE LAND'S direc
tion, was supplied with AVES'S SABSAPA
r.i LL A , which allayed the pain and Irritation,
bealed the sores, removed tbe swelling, and
completely restored the limb to ase.
Mr. LELA wo has personally used
for Rheumatism, with entire success ; and,
after careful observation, d?chues that, in
his belief, there is-uo medicine in the world
equal to it for tbe cure of Liver Disorders,
Gout, the effects of high livlnf, Salt
Rheum, Sores, Eruptions, and all the
various form? of blood diseases.
We bave Mr. LELAND'S permission to invite
all who may desire further evidence in regard
to the extraordinary curative powers ot
AYEU'S SARSAPARILLA to see hun persou
ally either at bis ro-mmoth Ocean Hotel,
Long Branch, or at the popular Leland Holst,
Broadway, 27th and 28th Streets, New York.

good done by this unequalled eradicator of
blood poisons enables him to gire Inquirers
much valuable information.
