1 rote, and walking faintly, went wilb
him, and passing out of tho darkneai of the
Hhrlnet, came once more into the pure light
of the morning, tilled with thought and
wonder. And then I went to my own
chamber and alcpt; nor did any dreamt
come to trouble me. But no man, not eveo
my father, asked me augbt of what I taw
upon that dread night, or after whut fashion
1 had communed with the Goddess.
After all tlicto things which have bocn
written, for a apace I applied myself to the
worship of tho Mother Isis, and to the fur
ther itudy of the outward for mi of the mys
lories wboroto I now hold tho key. More
ovor. I was instructed in mutter politic,
for many great men of our following came
secretly to aoe me from all quarter ol
Ugypt, and told me much of the hatred of
the people towurd Cleopatra, the Queen, and
of other thinga. At laat the hour drew
nigh; it was three month and ten day
from the night when, for awhile, I left the
flesh, and yet, living with onr llfo, wot
gathered to the breast ot Isit, on which It
was agreed that with due and cuttomary
formality, although In utter aocrecy, I
should be called to the throne of the Upper
and Lower Land. Bo It came to pas that,
at the tolemn time drew nigh, great men of
the party of Egypt gathered to the number
of thirty-seven from every nome, and eacb
great city of their nome, coming together at
Abouthi. In every guise they came aome
a priests, some as pilgrim to the Shrine,
and some a beggar. Among them waa
my uncle, Bcpa, who, though he clod him
aelf as a traveling doctor, had much ado to
keep hi loud voice from betraying blm.
Indeed, I myaelf knew him thereby, meet
ing him a I walked in thought upon the.
bank of the canal, notwithstanding that it
wat dusk and that the great cope, which,
after the fashion of such doctor, he bad
thrown about hi head, half hid hi face. -
"A pest on thee I" he cried, when I greeted
him by his name. "Can not a man cease to
be himself eveo for an bourl Didst tbou
but know the pain that It ha cost me to
learn to play this part and now thou read
est who I am even in the dark I"
And then.atlll talking in hi loud voice,
he told me how he had traveled hither on
foot, the better to escape the spies who ply
to and fro upon the river. But he said be
should return by the water, or take an
other guise; for since be bad come at a
doctor he had been forced to play a doctor'
part, knowing but little ot the arts of med
iolne; and, a be greatly feared, many
there were between On and Abouthi who
had luftered therefrom. (In Ancient Egypt
an unskillful or negligent physician was lia
ble to very heavy penalties. Ed. And be
laughed loudly and embraced me, forget
ting bis part For be waa too whole at
heart to be an actor and other than him
aelf, and would have entered Abouthi with
me holding my hand, bad I not chid him for,
At length all were gathered.
It was night when the gate of the Tem
ple were shut. None were left within them,
save only the thirty-seven, my father, the
HJgh Priest Amenembat; that aged Priest
who bad led b to the Shrine of bis; the
old wife, A ton a, who, according to ancient
custom, was to prepare me for the anoint
ing; and some Ave otbf r priests, sworn to
secrecy by that oath wldoh none may break.
They gathered In the second ball of the
great Temple, but I remained alone, clad In
my white robe, In the passage where are
the names of sli-and-seventy anolent Kings,
r o were before Ut day ef the divine petal.
There I rested in darkiMS, tU) at length
my father. Amenembat, eme, bearing
lamp, and, bowing ww before me, led f eby
uir ta a v-t
the hand forth into the great hall. Bore
and there botweou Its mighty pillars lights
were net that dimly showed the sculptured
images upon, the walla, and dimly fell upon
the lou r line of the seven-and-thirty Lord,
Priests and Princes, who, seated upon carv
en chairs, awaited my comlug in silence.
Before them, facing auroy from the seven
Suuctuarica, was set a throne, around which
stood the Prlosta holAing. tho. sacred im
ages and banners. As I came into the dim
und hoiy place the Dlgnitarios rose and
bowed before me, speaking no word, while
my father led me to the steps of the throne,
and in alow voice' bade me stand before it.
And then he spake t
'Lords, Pnosts and Princes of the anolent
orders of the land of Khem nobles from
the Upper and the Lower Country, here
gathered In answer to my summons, hoar
me. I present unto you, with such scant
formality as tho occasion can afford, the
Prince Harmachis, by right and true de
scent of blood the descendant and heir of
the ancient Phuruohs of our most unhappy
land. Priest is hoof the inmost circle of
the Mysteries of the Divine Isis, Muster of
the Mysteries, Hereditary Priestof the Pyr
amids which are by Memfl, Instructed in
the Solemn Kites of the Holy Osiris. Is
there any among you who Jiuth aught to
urge against the true line of his blood I"
He paused, and my Uncle Bcpa, rising
from his chair, spoko: "We have made ex
amination of the records and there is none,
O Amencmhut. Ho Is ot the Royal blood,
his descent Is true."
"Is there any among you," went on my
father, "who can deny that this Iloyul Hur
nmchis, by sanctions of the very Gods, bath
been gathered to Isis, been shown the way
of the Osiris, been admitted to be the
Hereditary High Prlost of the Pyramids
which ore by Moinfl, and of tho Tomplos of
the Pyramids I"
Then rose that old Priest who hod been
my guide in tho sunctuary of the Mother and
made untwer: "There is none, O Amenem
hut; of my own knowledge know I these
Once more my father spake: "Is thore
1 any among you who huth aught to urge
against this Koyal Harmachis, in that by
wickedness of heart or lifo, by uncleunness
or falsity, it is tint fit or moet that we
should crown him Lord of all the LandBl"
Then roso an aged Priuco of Memfl and
made answer! "Wo have inquired of these
matters; thero is none, O Amenembat I"
It is well," said my father; "thon naught
is wanting in tho Prinoo liurniuchls, seed
of Nekt-nebf, the Oslriun. Let the woman
Atoua stand forth and toll to this company
those things that enmo to pass when, at the
hour of her death, she who wis my wife
prophesied over this Prince, being Ailed
with the spirit of tho Uuthort."
Thereon old Atoua crept forward from
tho shadow of the columns and earnestly
told those tilings that hare been written.
"Ye have heard," tuid my father; "do ye
1-elievo that the woman who wa my wife
h.akowith tho diviue voice?"
'We do," they answered.
Then my Uncle Bcpa rose and spake;
"Royal Ilurmachis, thou hast heard.
Know now that, we aro gathered here to
crown thee King of tho Upper and the
Lotvr Lands thy holy futlier, Amcneni
liut, renouncing all his right on thy behalf.
Wo ir.o met, not, indeed, in such pomp and
ceremony as is duo to theoccasion for that

with such dignity and observance of the
ancient rites as our circumstances may
command. Leurn, now, how this matter

contents thereto, then mount thy throne, O
Pharaoh, and swear the oath I
"Long bulb Khem groaned beneath the
mailed heel of the Greek, and trembled at

the ancient worship of it Oods been des

Twenty thousand good and leal men urn

crown of fame undying.' And bow can
man more gloriously die than in a great
endeavor to strike tbe gyves from bis
country's limbs, so that she again may
stand in the face of Heaven and raise the
shrill shout of freedom, and, clad once
more in the panoply of strength, trample
under foot the memory of servitude, defy
ing tyrant nations of tbe earth again to set
the seal of their dominion on her brow I
"Khem. calls thee, Harmachis. Coma,
then, come, thou Deliverer; leap like Uorus
from the Armament, break her . totters,

"Enough, enough I" I cried, while tbe
long murmur of applause swept about
the columns and up the massy walls.
"Enough. Is thereany need thus to adjure
mef Had I a hundred llvot, would I not
mott gladly lay them down for Egypt!"
"Well said I well said I" answered Sena.
"Now go forth with the woman yonder, that
she may make clean thy hands before they
touch the sacred emblems, and thy brow
before It is encircled of the diadem."
And so I went forth with the old wlfo,
Atoua, Into a chamber apart There, mut
tering prayer, the poured pure water up
on my hands Into a ewer of gold, and bar
ing dippod a fine cloth Into tbe water, thero
Vith wiped my brow.

It is well known that dry earth will ab

harmless, and Is therefore one of the best
disinfectants known; also, that fresh earth,

Earth is not filth, and It children are al
lowed to become filthy they need the free
use ot disinfectants, such as dust, fresh
earth and pure circulating air. These are
the sanitary circumstances that prevent
such children getting sick.
It would be much better, however, to
have the skin kept clean by frequent ablu
tion, and frequent change of clothing. Thon,
with pure air there would be no need of
wallowing In the dirt to disinfect
Decaying exhalations from the body are

refuse matter, such at decaying vegotable

ciding of the capital question, and the adop
tion of the prohibitory and woman's suf
frage planks in the constitution coming in
as side Issues. The Republicans predict
the election of their entire ticket with ma
jorities ranging anywhere botween 8,000 and
The Democrats concede the election ot
Ferry for Governor and Wilson for Con
gress, but claim a division of the Supreme
Judgeships. For Governor and Congress
man thoy concede majorities ot from 8,000
to 5,000. Those last figures are more than
2,000 less than given to Allen for delegate
against Voorhees one year ago. The chair
man of tbe Republican Territorial Central
Committee olalms that the Legislature will
be Republican on joint ballot by a majority
of thirty. On the other hand the Demo
crats claim the Legislature on joint ballot
by ten. It is here, to socure the two United
Btates Senators, that the Democrats have
concentrated thoir entire energies, permit
ting and encouraging the sacrifice of other
portions of tbe ticket if by such this end
may be secured. Thoy are hotter organized
than ever before in the history of the Terri
tory. Thoir meetings have been largely at
tended and enthusiastic, and their leaders
are very sanguine.
Tho Prohibitionists and tho more radical
of the Woman Suffragists have been work
ing for the defeat of tbe constitution rather
than for tbe adoptlonof tho separate clauses
in their interest, having no hope of carry
ing the same. The farmer are also opposod
to it on the ground of extravagant salary
lists, many Judges, etc. It will be adopted,
notwithstanding all this, by a good majori
ty. The capital question will not be decided
at this election owing to tho number of can
didates and the fact that a majority of votes
is necessary to decide it The three cities
having the highest votes will be tbe con
tnstants next year. e

HEB HEALTH WAS EUINED
Her Life Was Cne of Fain, But
She is Now Well.
Mrs. Alexander Vaughn, wile of one of
the most prominent and eitensivoly known
nierchAnts of Prescott, Ark., writes the fol.
lowlng letter under date of April 22, 1889:
"I owe the preservation of my llfeundor
Providence. to Swift's Bpecltlc (3.8.80
For four years my health was wretched,
ruined my life, a life of constant pain
and misery and torture. Food soured on
my stomach, and what I ate to-day I
would voinlt tomorrow. My sleep at
night was broken with tho most horrible
visions in breams, so much so, that I could '
not bear to be left alone; chronic diarrhoea,
a painful cough lluit theatoned me with
coDBUinptiou ; my leet and ankles were
twisted out of all proportions, and my
limbs swelled more or less. I coud not
walk except on a level floor, and then
with dilliciilty, and fur a while could not
get in or out of bed without assistance.
The pressure ot a linger on my body
would leavo its impression, and in Bbort I
thought I had dropsy, in addition to my
other all! lotions.
Two doctors treated me faithfully dur
ing these iour years but did me no good
the medicines they gave me were as use
less as stagnant waieK My friends
thought I wou'd die, suffering as 1 was
with a combination of diseases.
In 1887 I discontinued the use of tbe
medlolnca i had been heretofore taking
and began to take Swift's Specific (S. S. s!)
Five boitles of this truly wonderful medi.
cine was what wroked the miracle of my
complete and pcrnanieDt recovery."
