Vivid Descraptions, History and Stories
One of the striking things about the
Bible as a single piece of literature Is
the variety of Its literary forms, suffi
cient, indeed, to appeal to the most
widely different tastes. There are ex
cellent examples of the short story all
through the historical books. such as
the absorbingly interesting account of
Joseph sold into slavery and afterward
elevated to a position next to Pharaoh
himself and the intensely realistic
story of Paul's shipwreck. which. were
it not too well written. might be an ex
tract from some book of adventure.
The books of which many of these
short stories form a part constitute a
body of most intimate and fascinating
tribal and national history. Wedged
in between two of the historical books a
we find the story of Ruth. a "prose
idyll," as delightful as any of which
profane literature can boast. The -s
Book of Esther. though not in form a I
drama, has a plot of dramatic power,
In which Haman. who Is raised to tri
imphant satisfaction at. the thought
of hanging Mordecai upon the gal
lows, .becomes himself the victim of
his own vengeance.
At the end stands that wonderful
Apocalypse. which is at once an in
spiration and a mystery. full of beau
ty and rich cadences. Interspersed
among all the narratives are delight
fplly suggestive descriptions. some
times presenting to us the simple life
of the shepherd. again the luxurious
surroundings of Ahasuerus' court. It is.
not strange, therefore, that the Bible
makes a strong intellectual appeal to
lovers of literature and to men of un
trained tastes.-Edgar F. Shannon in

a trifling sum was given for it. Con-,

bestow on the president and Informed_
Bob that his road did not run any

the superintendent, "sand If you'll

FROZEN WITH HEAT.
A Remarkable Process Known as the
Freezing Is usually associated with
:old, but water can be frozen on a red
lot plate. This pretty experiment has
'ghtly been called the caloric paradox.
If a drop of water Is placed on a red
lot or white hot metal plate It does
lot suddenly flash into steam under
:e influence of the great heat. It does
lot even boll. It simply evaporates
nietly and slowly as It rolls about the
>late. Now, suppose that the drop on
he plate Is a volatile liquid like suil
hurous acid. It will evaporate, and
his evaporation will produce cold. Let
drop of water fall in the sulphurouis
ed drop and It will be frozen in spite
f the heat.
4. Boutigny thus froze water on a
vhlte hot platinum capsule. Faraday
'arried this remarkable experiment '
yen further. Pouring some ether and
olidiied carbonic acid gas on a red
ot platinum capsule, he formed a
pheroidal mass which evaporated very
lowly. He then brought some mer
'ury Into contact with it. and this was
