An Ancient Manuscript.
This was found in an ancient
manuscript, sent by Publius Len
tulus, president of Judca, to the
Roman Senate :
' There lives at this time in
Judca a man of singular charac
ter, whose name is Jesus Christ.
The barbarians esteem him as a
prophet, but his followers adore
him as the immediate offspring
of God. He is endowed with un
paralleled virtues so as to be able
to call back the dead from their
graves, and to heal every kind
of disease with a word or touch.
His person is tall and elegantly
shaped, his aspect amiable and
reverend. His hair flows in those
beautiful shades which no united
colors can match, falling in
graceful curls below the ears,
agreeably touching on his shoul
ders and parting on the crown
of his head like the head-dress
of the sect called Nazarites. His
forehead is smooth and his
cheeks without a spot, save that
of a lovelv red. His nose and
mouth are formed with exquisite
symmetry ; his beard is thick
and suited to the hair of his
head, reaching a little below his
chin and parting in the middle
like a fork. His eyes are bright,
clear and serene. He rebukes
with majesty and counsels with
persuasive language, his whole
address, whether in word or
deed, being elegant, grave and
characteristic of so exalted a
being. No man has seen him
laugh, but all Judea has fre
quently seen him weep, and so
persuasive are his tears that the
multitude are unable to restrain
theirs Irom mingling with his.
He is modest, temperate and
wise. Whatever this phenome
non may be in the end, he now
seems to be a man of strange
beauty and divine perfection, in
every way surpassing the chil
dren of men."

A Beautiful Gift.
Mrs. Mary K. Irvine, of South
Broadway, presented to Eugenia

Bible, in token of her apprecia
tion of the government position
procured for her son, Berkley,
through the recommendation of
Judge Denny. In addition to
this claim there has existed for
years the tender tie of a pupil
and her first teacher between the
giber and the receiver. An illu
minated card, showing an open
Bible, bore on the reverse side
the words, "May the rich gems
contained in this precious vol

man told Mrs. Chapin he would give her
fifty dollars to buy a gas cooking-stove
if she would drop that disgusting word
"temperance" out of the name, but she
said that if she were on a compromising
line she could make a far better trade
by going in with the saloon keepers,
who would not only give her a stove,
but plenty of .-material to cook, and
plenty of patronage. Mrs. Chapin is
