In reply to "iMr. Alhunkey" wc lind
from reading ancient history Herodotus
observes that as the Egyptian could not
live without kings they chose twelve,
among whom they divided the different
districts ol Egypt. These princes con
nected themselves together by interinar
riages agreeing to promote the common
interest and never lo engage in any act.
ol separate policy. The motive lor this
union was to guard against thc declara
tion ot an oracle that whosoever among
them should offer in the temple ol Vul,
can a libation from a brazen vessel
should be thc sole sovereign of Egypt
and it is to bc remembered thal they as
sembled indifferently in every temple.
These twelve kings were eminent for the
justice of their administration. Upon a
certain occasion they were offering sac
rifices in thc temple of Vulcan and on
the last day of thc lcstlval, were about
to make thc accustomed libation; for
this purpose the chiel priest handed
to them the golden cups used on these
solemnities, bot he mistook thc number
and instead of twelve gave only eleven.
I'sammclichus who was the last ol them
not having a cup look off his helmet
which happened to be ol brass and from
this poured his libation. (But 1 did not
pour any wine in any of the scenes I
saw, either at the door when it sprang
open.) The other princes usually wore
helmets and had them on the present oc
casion, so that the circumstance of this
one king having and using his was ac
cidental and innocent. Observing the
action, and remembering the prediction
of the oracle the other kings minutely
investigated the matter thinking that he
had acted designedly. Finding, how?
ever, that it was purely accidental they
did not deem him worthy of death; but
for their own security, deprived him of
the regal power, and confined him to
the marshy parts of his country, forbid
ding him to leave this situation or hold
communication with the rest of Egypt.
Psammctichus writhing under thc in
dignity, resolved to be revenged and
with this view sent to consent the oracle
at Latona, at Butos. He was answered,
that the sea would produce brazen men
to avenge bis cause. Sometime after, a
body of lomans and Carians who had
been engaged in a voyage of plunder
were compelled by stormy weather lo
land in Egypt clad in their bra/en ar
i mou rs. The ambitious monarchs iou
? mediately conceived these to bc thc
brazen men promised him by the oracle.
' He accordingly entered into an alliance
i with them and having, by splendid
' promises engaged them to unite willi
his Egyptian adherents, he vanquished
J the eleven kings, and made himself
- master of the whole country. This hap

IN A FLORIDA SWAMP.
Ovcisluulowcd by u Forest of lllossoniH.
Huaicos lu tho I.ow Itrunvlios.
Soon tito forest closed in on holli Bid?n
of tho narrowing creek. The banks on
either side wuro bul three or four inches
above waler, and we could look far into
the dark woods, overa dead level covered
with luxuriant v?gcUiilbn-?jonie fresh,
sollie old. Ferns of many varieties some
t?: \s blocked tho view with their fronds.
Kow and then there were patches of soil
in the deep shadow, where nothing grew
except tho while At amusco lily. Scores
ol this starry dower lit up these somber
places. The creek grew moro narrow
and winding. The trees met overhead,
and we bent our hyads low lo pass under
the branches, si retching up our hands oc
casionally lo break oil' twigs loaded willi
blossoms. So on for 1 know not how
long n distance, till tho boat could geno
farther, anti we went ashore and loaded
ourselves with Howers. A catalogue of
them would ho too long.
Do you ever experience the delight
which is etuisod by meeting u familiar
homo bower among st range blossoms? Up
here the air was lilied with a fragrance
which waa easily traced lo tho small
while bloom of our partridgo berry,
much moro fragrant in Florida than in
New langland. Perhaps the most strik
ing feature of this spot is thal, after you
have emerged from tho bottom land and
ascended on tho dry soil beside the
swamp, you find yourself in a small
forest of tli? sparkle berry, a tree which
for beauty bas hardly a rival. Tho
blossoms, which are small and white,
hang by the million on slender stems.
Looking up at them you aro bewildered
with their beauty and lavish abundance.
Day is not long enough lo satisfy one
who once gets into Ino heart of a Florida
swamp in April. There aro countless
plants in blossom, and many more whose
strange and unknown foliage leads you
to wonder what their blossom will be.
Among these tho sunshine drops through
openings in tho Ines with dazzling
elVeels. (beat butterflies, Hitting through
the shadows, neem of strange, and somber
color, like huge night moths, and it is
only when they cross ono of tho streaks
ol' sunlight that you recognize your old

Snakes, do you ask? Yes, many and
mighty. So long as you are in tho boat
you need have no care for them, but
when wandering about swamps you may
as well keep a sharp lookout. You will
not lind them, however, in cool weather
or cloudy days. Wo saw a few. The
colored folk seem to inherit a condensed
portion of tho human enmity to the ser
pent. Whenever one sees a snake he is
possessed with a desire to exterminate
iiim. As we rowed slowly down the
river we saw here and there a moccasin
hanging on a branch in tho sunshine, and
my boatman always wanted to stop and
kill bim, and I always consented.

Here is a story with the scene laid in
Vicksburg. It was while I was in Vicks

to tho commissary to do some work; The
boys made it a part of their work to slip
something more than was given to them
when they went to tho commissary, and
it was always something to eat, which
they would divido with us. 1 thought
that as it bad come my limo to go 1
would be as good aa they had
been, if the opportunity afforded.
That wo were watched you need
not doubt, sind that there was
reason for stealing 1 need not deny. Hut

whim 1 think of it,
When 1 was iii the commissary, leonid
see nothing open but a barrel of crackers.
1 could get to nothing better and con
cluded fo take a good supply of them.
In walking about tho commissary 1 made
it convenient to go by the barrel of hard
tacks and slip a handful in my bosom,
always watching tho commissary ser
geant. 1 worked hard when he was
looking at me. I never once thought
about how many of tho crackers 1 was
getting into my bosom. 1 never noticed
thal my shirt body was growing fo an
enormous sizo. 1 was thinking of tho sup
per that the boys would have that night.
Suddenly the bottom part of my shirt
slipped out from under the waistband of
my pants. The sergeant was looking at
mo. Tho situation I was in can only be
imagined. 1 was excited, and it seemed
to mo that there was a bushel of thc

THE BAPTISM OF JOHN.
EXPLANATORY NOTES BY REV. R.
S. M'ARTMUR, D. D.
Lesson IV of tho Iiitorimtfounl Sorlo?
t'i'titrd Quarter), Tor Sunday. July 24.
Text nf thu Lesson, Mutt, exl, 13-17.
Uol?loil Text, Mutt, ?xl, 17.
Wo hero puss from tho ministry of John to
that of Jesus. Tho transition hour is tho bap
tism of thu Lord by John; that was tho most
important act in tho harbinger's mission.
Tho king was thus inaugurated, and tho
work of tho forerunner was nearing its and,
Tho sconu is profoundly instructivo. Tho sin
less Ono submits to tbo symbolical ant as if
hu wero a simmer.
V. Itt. Then Conioth.-Wo cannot bo quito
certain bow long John tho Baptist had boen
preaching up to this period. Perhaps, taking
into account thc comparative age bf the Bap
tist, wo may suppose tbat tho baptism of
Christ took placo six months after John bo
gan his ministry. Tradition, which has se
lected tho spot, has also named tho winter as
tho Mino of tho baptism. Josus carno from
Nazareth of Galilei?. Mark 1,9 namei/*tho
town. Wo have already seen that this town
was about sovonty milos north of Jerusalem,
and perhaps about th? samo distan?a from
tiio placo of baptism. That spot would seem
to bo tho ?arno ns whore, in versos llvu and
six, multitudes carno to John for baptism.
Probably this was thopla?a already signnli/.od
in tho history of redemption. Hero tho
Israelites uudor Joshua crossed tho river;
hero tho waters showed tho power of God
when they wero miraculously opened by
Elijah hnd EHsha. No wonder that inuit sumos
still come, as many travelers inform us, und
plunge into thu waters at this sacred spot.
V. 14. John's Hesitancy.-John knowsoino
tbing of Christ's miraculous birth, blameless
lifo and divino character. No wonder that
ho shrank from performing this service. 1
Moro fitting it seemed that Jesus should bap
tizo him. Ho felt unworthy to unloose his
Lord's snndnls, for less to baptize him. This
hesitancy is in perfect harmony with other
examples of John's marked humility. Tho
imperfect tunso hero employed shows that it
was not a momentary act when ho forbade
him. Tho word means that ho tried to hin
der htni. As Alford suggests, tho word im
plies activo and earnest provoutlng with ges
tures of hand and tones of tho voice. When
.Jesus spOko tho words which removed John's
doubt ho immediately obeyed. Wo havo
three accounts of tho buptism, but Matthew
alone tells us of John's hesitancy to perform
tho significant act. John alroady regarded
him ns the Messiah, but ho wanted and ho
now received perfect assuranco regarding his
divino anointing. Why should Christ, tho
sinless ono, submit to tho baptism of ropont
nncel Tho answer is not far to seek. Ho
was mndo sin for us. Boing in tho likonoss of
sinful flesh, it was fitting that ho should sub
mit to tho rite intended for sinners. In this
spirit ho performed ninny other acta, such us
keeping thu Passover, on observance belong
ing especially to sinners. His baptism thus
identified thu Lord with those whom ho carno
V. 15. Our Lord's significant answer ro
moved John's hesitancy. Tho reply also
shows Christ's design in submitting to tho
ordinance. Had Christ loft this act unper
formed, something would havo boen wonting
ir? that perfect righteousness which he carno
to manifest. Ho came in our nuiuru llotonly
to din tho death of atonement, but to live a
lifo of perfect obedience. Baptism is an act
of obedionco. Standing in our placo it was
fitting that Jesus should submit to this ordi
nauco. What Christ sanctioned now by his
own examplo ho afterward commanded,
making it binding upon nil bis truo disciples.
Tho baptism also wns an inauguration of
Christ's public and ofllclal lifo. Tho 'now"
suggests that tho relation of subjection waa
real, but was only temporary and would soon
givo placo lo a truer relationship. Christ
recognizes some ground for John's doubt, but
John was to acquiesce for good, though tem
porary reasons The act is that of Jesus as
well tis that of John.
V, l?. Wont Up Straightway Out of tho
Water.-Alter tho act was porformed the
heavens wero opened, tho clouds woro parted,
and tho spirit as n dove descended.
As a Dove.-This may bo understood of tho
shape which was assumed, or of tho manner
of descent, so far os theso words aro con
cerned; but adding what Luke hos said (I ai ko
iii, 22), it is moro probable that tho roferenco
is rather to tho form which tho spirit chose to
assume. To limit this expression to tho man
ner ot' tho descent is to do violonco to tho nat
ural menning of tho expression. Nothing
could bo moro appropriate to tho character,
lifo and work of Jesus than this dovo Uko
form. John tolls us (John i, 82) that "it
abode on him." It was a permanent posses
sion; thus ho received tho spirit without
measure; thus he was formally anointed for
j his great work; tims he ofiletolly entered
upon it. Then John and others knew, by
testimony from heaven, that ho was tho Mes
V. 17. A Volco from Heaven.-Tho voice
of tho eternal God was now heard. This
voice would confirm John most fully and
botter pr?para him for his further rotations
to Jesus. It is possiblo that tho voico was
heard only by him mid by Christ himself.
The term Non was applied to thu Messiah in
Pun I ms ii, 7, 13. On two othor occasions tho
voico of the Father was heard-at tho trans
figuration and shortly before tho crucifixion.
A compnrison of tho records of theso three
events by all tho evangelists will show that
on every occasion Christ was engaged in
prayor. Tho three occasions abound In sug
My Bon, My Beloved.-This is a sort of
! proper mono; it is a distinctive title. Tho
remaining words aro from tho Messianic pro
phecy as found in Isaiah xiii, 1. This was a
