"One hundred and twenty-five francs, sir.'' "Very well. I will take it. I have some money to collect at the confec tioner's across the way.

The position of Palestino on the map of tho world has fitted it and its succes sive peoples ':r a remarkable place in history. Here is a little country, with only 8,000 square miles, or 2,01)0 less than our State of Vermont, which, if we measure it by the scope of its his tory, the remote antiquity of its litera ture, and the great forces it has started into irresistible movement, we must place among the foremost in the anrimt family of nations. It is practi cally the meeting-place of three conti nents—Africa, Asia, and Europe. If lblgium is the "cock-pit of Europe," w :cre many of the chief battles of mexlem times have been fought, Pales tine holds the same relation to the an cient world. Her plain of 11-draelon has been the battle-ground of nations ami civilizations from Abraham's day to Napoleon Bonaparte's. This little country was the pathway of the nations on land, while on the sea it was her Phienicia which planted colonies all around the shores of the Mediterranean, crcnted Carthage, rival of Home, and dared to send her ships as far ninth as liritain. There is something, too, akin to magnetism in this wonderful little land. It gave a certain measure of his torical importance, and, indeed, of im mortality to every people and land it ton eh e l. Take from our knowledge of Egyptian history all we have learned from the Mosaic narrative, and there will be a marvelous diminution of the band. It is only where Assyria in an early day came into relations with Syria that wo got something of a elefi nite knowledge of that great Oriental power. We Und Eawlinson, in his Five Monarchies." and Wilkinson, in his Manners and Customs of the Egyp tian? constantly appealing to and lean ing on the scripture history, in order to treat the subject in hand in consecu tive form. It is Palestine that brings all great aneu i:t countries within our vision. It is our best telescopo for a view of the remote past. Wo read tho fortunes of other peoples through her.

Palestine long resisted Rome, and linally suffered d"-truction through Titus. Iler acres and faith were bar tered like a piece of merchandise, and were, in turn, owned by Canaanite, Jew, Assyrian, Greek, Syrian, Maecaluean and lloman. 33ut in three centuries we find iieihlehom supplanting Iiome. Christianity held the scepter on tho Seven Hills, and paganism became a thing of the country village, or pagv.s. —Harper s -gazhie. Through China. Wo passed through by-roads and fields of millet ten feet high, and could not see acre.ss the country unless where the harvest was cut. The stocks of tho large millet looked like wigwams. Wo heard sad tidings of the famine yet here there was abundance-so much that this one province could supply all the famine-stricken. A measure of millet will support a Chinaman for a month but there is no enterprise about getting the millet to the hungry, and the port was soon to be closed by the winter. There was always some ono on the road, though tho houses and village.? were few. Now it was the postman, with l.-is mail-bag slung across his shoulders, his hands swinging vehe mently as he went.

Some ladies crossed by a eh over the fields to pay a vi.-it to a r.eigh». or's house a servant followed them, and they stole shy looks at the foreigners. Hero the reapers were at work raid, if it was tho large millet, they cut down only ono srook at a time, and then bound them labori ously in gigantic rdieaves. A watch man, staff in hand, was patrolling tho fields to guard his master's grain ag-dnst the inroads cf the po r. There we saw a thiv.-hing-floor—the hard, beaten circuit of ground, the ears with only a short .-tn and a v.diite and stone round no the grain w . thrashed with tJ met there was almost always a .-mali shrine of mud, a few feet high, raised to some local god, a shabby superstition that contrasted with the comfortable look and intelligence of the people.
