It was Pe Quincey who likened con
science to the whispering gallery in
St. Paul's, Iondon. A word spoken
ever so softly on one side of the vast
dine is loudly re-echoed on the other.
In youth conscience chid him In sullen
whispers; in old age, at the other end
of his life gallery, the same conscience
spoke to him in peals of thunder. The
still small voice which the boy would
not hoar returned to the old man lik
the crack of doom In terrible self re
proaches. Even Nero, the monster,
had to fly from the spot where he hnd
caused his mother to be murdered. Ho
fancied he was haunted by her angry
ghost; that he heard the blowing of a
ghostly trumpet and wailing over her
tomb. What a terrible dis'-overer of
sin conscience is! Christian Herald.
