BILL ARP ON THE JEWS.
Liberal and Peaceful People-"Esther, the
[Fron the Atlanta Constitution.]
A few days ago the Jews celebrated
the feast of Purim-a feast to com
meniorate the deliverance of their fore
fathers from destruction at the hands
Hamen. The Jews were called in the
olden time a peculiar people and they
are peculiar now. Was there ever a
race so true :o the traditions of their
fathers? Was there ever a people so
zealous, so constant, so steadfast in
their religion and yet so tolerant, so
considerate and so unwilling to prosel
yte those of another faith ? Who ever
heard of a Jew trying to convert a
gentile'? The gentiles have tried for
centuries to proselyte the Jews. They
have tried force and fear, and argu
ment, but all in vain. Not long ago I
saw it stated that in the last twenty
years England had expended a mis
sion work among the Jews of Europe
one huy:1red and eighty thousand
pounds, and claimed to have converted
s:x-six that they were sure of. What
a quiet unpretending people. How
clear of criie and litigation, how kind
and charitable to each other, how true
in war, how gentle in peace, how lib
eral in all public enterprises that are for
the public good. The feast of Purim
caused me to investigate P little to see
what I could 1ind more than is in our
Bible book of Esther. It seems that
Ahasuerus was another name for Ar
taxerxes and that Haman was an
Amalekite and hated the Jews, be
cause in the day- of their power and
prosperity they had so often whipped
the Aialekites and despoiled them of
their prosperity, Ahasuerus was a
good easy unsuspecting king and Ha
man was a shrewd designing cour
tier. But: woman was at a discount
then, and those fellows said that if
Mrs. Vashti was n]lowed to disobey her
lord. then every other man's wife
would do the same thing, and so
Vashti was retired in disgrace, and
Esther was chosen. What a beauty
she must have been to be preferred
over s"veral hundred Persian maidens,
who had been carefully selected from
all the virgins of the empire. I } ave
often wondered how the great king
made his choice. Were these beauti
ful maidens all seated in a spacious
hall, and the king pass around and in
spect them and cause each one to stand
up and1 turn around and walk about
just like my friend Bill Ramey does a
horse? Did he want to see if she was
coupled well and howshe stood on her
pasture joints? Was shea thoroughbred,
and did she hold ahigh head and a fiash
ing eye ? Did she wear No. 2 shoes
and step like a deer ? Did he examine
her teeth and ask how old she was.
Tradition says it took the king three
weeks to make his choice. The first
week he reduced the number to forty
nine ; the second week to seven, and
on the last day of the third week he
chose Esther and kissed her and con
ducted her to his magnificent throne.
What a disappointment it was to all
the others to be retired and sent back
to their various homes. There was but
one Cinderilla and that was Esther.
Seventy years ago there was a grand
rich lady of the olden time whose chil
dren had all married and gone, and
this fine lady was lonely and sad in her
beautiful home in the country near
Savannah, and she went to the orphans
home in the city and told the good
matron that she wanted to adopt a
little girl and would do a good part by
her. and educate her and be a mother
to her. And so all the girl children
were dressed in their Sunday clothes
and brought into the large room that
was called the chapel, and the seats
were arranged all round next to the
'walls, and more than a hundred little
girls took their seats side by side and
awaited their fate wvith fear and with
hope. For them it was a trying ordeal,
for they could not know who would be
chosen, nor whether the lady would
te kind or not. But they had no
choice in the matter. They were help
less orp)hanls and must obey. The fine
lady was arrayed in silk and jewels,
and her carriage was waiting at the
gate. Three times did she walk slowly
round, looking closely into the faces of
the child ren who sat like trembling
fawns, and she talkedl pleasantly to
them, and asked them questions so
kindly that soon their fears were dis
pelled. At every round she stopped
longer at~ one place than she did at
any other, and asked more searching
questions of a swveet, sad child who had
not ilng keen there, a child whose
parents died the same day of yellow
fever' an:d were buried in the same
grave and left no kindred to care for
her. .After t he third round the great,
fine lady called the matron to her and
said :"'I will take this one," and she
placed her jewe!ed hand upon the
head of the child, ar.d all the others
were quiety retired do their accus
tomedt phie. In afew minutes the
chosenm one's little satchel of clothing
w~as prep.::red. She kissed a sad good
bye to l:a r .'.nlI:mionls and the good
ma)tior?. :.' her hoi I usehold, and went
out with :l '. :niy into the wide world
to begzia:: nmw litfc wit h strangers in a
strain.re pir.'e. The* grea't, fine lady
was the :'oi ter of lir. Goulding, a
great pre:,-er,~ : ud she was the granC
mnatheri '' nf 'h "Young 1ar'oonmers."'
an l a kimi p'rovidence niever guardied

Twenty years have passed since a
good man died-a man whose name
was Bradbury. He was a good musi
cal genius, and composed many musi
cal books, of which over half a million
were sold. When I was a boy his
song books were in univeral use. His
cantata of Esther still lives, and will
live always I hope, for it is a wonder- S
ful work and has given exquisite pleas- li
ure to millions. I have a great rever- e<
ence for his memory. What a com- w
fort, it must be to a man in his old age g
to realize that his life's work has been ti
a comfort to his fellow men, and will bi
live after him and continne to be a f
Our young people have recently had P
this cantata on the boards, and have of
twice delighted the public with its g
performance. It took about a month "
of practice and rehearsal to make it a n
success ; but it was a success, and has tl
done more to elevate and refine the a
taste for good music than anything g
that has transnired in this community. i
Including the children, there were
about forty persons engaged in it,
and all *the parents and kindred be- ti
came interested and now everywhere I
you go the sweet strains of this cantata
are heard. The children chant it on the b
way to school ; the mothers at the fire- b
side ; the lawyers at their desks. I I
asked a banker for ten dollars, and he t
smiled and sang "Long Live Our Beau- n
teous Queen ;" and, as he was a little
slow, I had to reply, "Haste, Haste." 11
We had some splendid voices and ele- v
gant costumes, and during the pathetic It
scees I wanted to weep so bad tl at I s
was ashamed of my efforts to conceal C
my emotion. At one time my tender
feelings broke loose and run over in y
spite of myself, and I had to choke
them back again, with an audible F
effort that was something between a g
sneeze and a snort. Folks looked round ti
at me, but I made no sign. I do love t<
to cry on such occasions, and I would a
boohoo aloud if I was not lashamed. V
How those little girls did enjoy the 1i
part they played, and when the audi
ence went wild and cheered and
encored to call them back, one little t
one was alarmed and said, "Mother, st
didn't we do it right, have we got to la
do it over again." 0
Now, every town has some musical E
talent, and has young people who are is
restless for something to do in the V
way of pleasant entertainments. Let $
them gather the amateurs and train S
them for this beautiful cantata. It 01
will take a month of hard work-earn- w
est work-but it will pay at last. Any
thing of beauty or a joy forever. . l
Long live our beauteous queen, i
Long live our noble king, b,
God is the refuge of his people. C
The beautiful strains to which these
words and others are set haunt me
and follow me like a delightful dream. ,
The women got this up and the men e(
just fell into line ; that's all--we al
ways do-we have to. The men can n.
compose, but it takes women to exe- tl
cute. Why is that ? Why is it that la
the world has had no great composers ~
among the women ? There are no C
female Haydos or Handels or Mozarts h
or Beethovens-not even a female
Bradbury to compose a cantata. Then
let the young people try these musical
entertainments. I see that they oc
casionally get on a strain for something ti
and get up a "cold water set around," og
or a "coffee and conversation,'' or a
"tea and talk" party, which, of course, t:
is better than nothing, but they are
not things of beauty, and do not last
long. IBILL ARP.
A Pretty Love Story About Henry Glad
[From the Chicago;News.]
Loxnos, February.-You will per- c
haps remember that a fortnight ago I
gave the particulars of the wedding of
Mr. Henry Gladstone, son of the ex
Premier, and Miss Maud Rendel. Then
story of the wooing has just transpired. b
It seems that the twvo met last summer
at Posillipo, the young lady's fathera
having at that picturesque little hamlet
on the Gulf of Naples a lovely villa.
One beautiful evening the two were in
the garden overlooking the water upon .
which the moonlight hung like a misty
gauze ; the scene was one of poetic
loveliness-young Gladstone felt that
there never could be a fairer spot or ae
better moment for the confession of his t
love, so he declared himself to his a
inamorata with a fervor which the
picturesqueness of the surroundings
enhanced, if it did not iuspire. Instead,
however, of answering him, the pretty h
girl covered her face with her hands
and fled precipitately into the villa. P
Of course this astcunded the young
lover; he could not understand it at sl
all; should he interpret the maiden's ii
conduct as a rejection ? If so, it were
better for him to leave Poissillipo at b
once. But no, his Scotch instincts p
came to his rescue; he had done the n
proper thing properly-he would bide
his time. Next morning after break- ai
fast, at which his idol did not appear, rr
he sought the garden and meandered tc
gloomily therein, wondering what 'tc
tactics he ought to pursue. Suddenly is
he heard Miss Maud call to him, and
turning he beheld that young girl ad
vacing. She put both her hards in
his and said, with charming frankness.
"1 would iiot answer you last night
fearing you were under the influence
of the insidious summer evening and
of the poetical and almost magical ~
scene, and that it wvas not your heart m~
t hat spoke; so I would hear in the day
t ime if you ,ove, and, if this is so, I wvill lii
tell you that I am willing to give youn
my life and my love." H
Now, isn't this bit of truth quite as h
pretty as anything that could be culled th
from fiction? b
The Deepest Mine in the World. L:
[From the St. Louis Republic.] h<
It is at St. Andre du Poirier, France, ca~
and yearly produces 300,000 tons of coal. 1S
The mine is worked with two shafts, im
>ne 2,952 feet deep and the other 3,083. w<
The latter shaft is now being deepened te<
nd will soon touch the 4,000 foot level. wi
A remarkably feature in this deep mine re]
is the comparative low temperature to
experienced, which seldom rises above hi
5* Fahrenheit. The gold and silver th
mines of the Pacitic coast of our own th
ountry, at a depth of less than half in,
that of the French coal mine, often foc
have much difficulty in keeping the to
temperature low t"'ugh to admit of dr<
working. In some levels of the great

We used to bemoan the fact that
:uthern men of fortune rarely gave
berally to the cause of religion and
lucation. The Northern men of
ealth have all along been far more
merous and considerate in this par
eular than the Southern people have
,en. We never heard of great bene
etions until two men in Baltimore

The late B. F. Moore, of Raleigh, in

Ldy also left a generous bequest to the
une noble institution. Mr. Julian S.
arr has given liberally and in many
ays. He gave Trinity College some
ears since $10,00-. lie has given
1,000 to the students' fund at Wake

Wake Forest College. His gifts, we
