Bess of this world I lighted on a certain place wliere was a D*n and laid me down to sleep. As I slept I dreamed a dream. I *aw a man elothed with rags, a book in his hand, and a burden on his back. Reading in the book, he brake out with a cry: "What shall I do to be saved r Going home he opened his trouble to his wife and children, who at i first pitied but presently chided him. t This continuing for many days. he walked in the fields where he saw coming to him a man named Evan I gelist. who advised him to flee the City of Destruction, which was to b* burnt with Are and brimstone, and make for the City of Zion. Then was there much ado in the family of Christian, for such was his name, that he should run from li*? home on a way which all knew to be perilous. Two of his neigh bors did Christian Implore to ac company him. The name of the one was Obstinate, that of the other Pliable -What." cried Obstinate, "leave our friends and comforts be hind us?- But Pliable went with hrfn for a space, till they reached a quag named the Slough of De spond. Having wallowed here for a time Pliable getting out on the wide nearest to his home, turnea back. t But Christian struggling on; alone'on'- Help came to his rescue,! and led him to solid ground. Here as Christian was walking he, e.-pied sfar off a Mr. Worldly Wise-j nan. of the town of Carnal Policy. ? To his questions as to where he ? v? ould be going Christian replied j tiiat he sought means to be rid of i the burden on his back. "Why. In yonder village. Morality,** said the j gentleman, "there dwells one whose j ram* is Legality, and who hath a j retty young man. Civility, to his; -on. These will ease thee of tny 1 .rden.** So saying he directed; Christian to a high hill, the which. ! on his reaching it. bent over so; much that it was like to fall on and bury him. Vow Christian began to be sorry that be had taken Vlr. Worldly Wiseman's counsel: whereupon he again saw Evangelist, who en <? uraged him to go back and seek "?he Gate for which he had been j raking when urged to go out of j the way. So In process of time Chris tian got up to this gate, over which j was written. "Knock and it shall be j v??ned unto you." He knocked, there- I .fore, and one named Good-will came j lo answer Then did Christian recite the per-J lis through which he had come in' toeeking to be rid of his burden, i *Be content to bear it." said Good- I will, "until thou come to the place j of deliverance, for there it will fall off of itself." So was he sent on his way again, walking along a road which ended in a cross and a sepulcher. I saw In ray dream that as he came up with the cross his burden loosed from hi* back till it fell Into the sepulcher. where I saw it no more. Then Christian gave three leaps for Joy and went on singing, com 1n?r to the hill Difficulty. About midway to the top of this hill was an arbor in which he sat him down to rest, but soon fell asleep. Los ing the settle the roll in which he had begun to read, he started hastily, whtn he awoke, on his way again. At the top of the hill there met him two men running amain. These were Mistrust and Timorous, who warned him to go "back since there were lions in the way. Then was Christian in a great quandary, since to j?o back to his own city would mean to risk death at the mouths of lions. Thus troubled he sought comfort in reading in his roll, but lo! it was not in his bosom. Then was much time lost while Christian returned to the arbor to And his book; but while he was thus bewailing his miscarriage he lifted up his eyes and saw a stately palace, the name of which was Beautiful. Here dwelt the damsels Discretion. Prudence. Piety, and Charity, who made Christian wel come. laying him in the chamber called Peace. Next day they showed him the armory of their house, as well as such ancient treasures as Moses' rod. the hammer and nail with which Jael slew Sisera. and the jaw-bone with which Sam-son diet mighty feats. Likewise did theyi take him up to the top of their; house and bid him look at the plea*- | ant countries of the Delectable I Mountain* and Emmanuel's Land, j "When thou comest there." safa they, "thou m&yst see the Gate ofi the Celestial City." Going on from thence he entered, the Valley of Humiliation, where met him the foul fiend. Apollyon. I Apollyon claiming Christian as his| subject th< latter could in no wise | deny the fact, seeing that he had been born in the City of Destruc-j tion over which the monster ruled.) Nevertheless Christian renounced his allegiance to the King of Princes who dwelt in the City of Zion. Then ensued a dreadful flght between Christian and the flend, during which the flend was like to hav* worsted the Pilgrim had It not been for the weapons furnished him from their armory by the fair damsels in the castle Beautiful. The battle b< ing over there came a hand with some of the leaves of the Tree of Life. wherewith Christian stanched his wounds. Now at the ? nd of this Vall#v was another still more dread called the Valley of the Shadow of Death. On its right was a very deep ditch into which the blind have led the blind in all ages, while on the left was a dangerous quag, the which if even a good man were to fall into it he could find no bottom for his foot to stand oil Good Christian was the mon> pat to it seeing that the path way was exceeding narrow, and as he went on he sighed bitterly. About the middle of tht* Valley wu there also the mouth of Hell, out or which came dismal flame and smoke. When the fiends came up to this entrance he cried out in a vehement voice, **I will walk in the strength of the Lord God," whereat they gave back. Havinf passed through this Val ley he came up with his friend Faithful, who had. though Christian knew it not. followed him out of the City of Destruction. Then was there much discourse between the two Pilgrims as to the perils through which they had come, with Faith ful telling of his escape from Madam Wanton, as well as from the old man with the three daugh ters. the Lust of the Flesh, the Lust of the Eyes, and the Pride of Life. Also did Faitful tell of his encount ers with Arrogancy. Pride, and Worldly-glory. But the worst of them all was with Shame, a bold faced fellow who would never have done speaking against all goon men and things. Then I saw in my dream that they presently came to the town of Van ity. where Is tfvfair kept called Van ity Fair. Here is there at all times much noise and folly, with the buy ing and selling of such foolish wares as have given the town its fame. The people of the fair, tak ing the Pilgrims for outlandish men and bedlam*, made a great gasing st them. Likewise were they not a little amused that Christian and Faithful, setting very light by all their merchandise, did speak ez? hortingly. Much hubbub did follow thereon, during which the Pilgrims were cast into jail. At a convenient time they were brought forth to trial before the Lord Hategood, wit ness being given against them by such base fellows as Envy. Supersti tion. and Pickthank. Among the jurors were Mr. Ko-good. Mr. Malice. Mr. Love lust, and suchlike, by whom good Faithful was condemned. After much persecution they burned him to ashes at the stake, whereat I saw in my dream that a chariot with horses carried him up to the Celes tial Gate by the nearest way. As for Christian He that over rules all things released him from prison, so that he went on his way in company with one Hopeful who had followed him from that town. Soon they came to a great fortress oalkd Doubting Caatle. the owrfer of which was Giant Despair, who took them prisoners. Now Giant Despair had to his wife a woman I named Diffidence. So when he was j gone to bed he told her what he had ; done, to-wit that he had taken a I couple of prisoners. and asked her what he should do with them. Her | counsel was that he should advise them to make away wltl/ them selves. So when morning was come j he goes to them with a very surly (manner, telling th*m that they ' should end themselves with knife. ! halter, or poison. When they de I sired him to let thf m go he looked j very ugly upon them, and rushing at them had doubtless made an end ! to them himself, but that he fell m a fit to which he was subject, ana } lost the use of his hand. I Thus escaping from Giant Despair (they came to the Delectable Moun tains. where mtt them certain shep Iherds. Knowledge. Experience, Watchful, and Sincere, who took them by the hand and led them to their tents. Also did they lead them forth to the top of a high hill called Clear, from the which they might spy the Celestial Gate through a i perspective glass. Then I saw in my drtam that Christian and Hopeful, going dowi. > the mountains, and passing through I the country of Conceit, got over to a land called the Enchanted Ground. , and thus into the country of TTr niaTi whose air was sweft. Their way lying directly through it they soi* need themselves there, listening to the ringing of birds and seeing the flowers appear In the earth. Here had they a distant view of the City of Zion. which was built or pearls and precious stonis. and the street paved with gold. Also T saw that as they went on there met them two men in raiment that shone. "You have but two difficulties more to meet," said they, "and then you are in the City." Now I further saw that betwixt them and the Gate was the River, of Death. There was no bridge to go over It. and the River was deep. At sight thereof the PfTgrims were, much stunned, asking if there was no other way. Being.told there was none they addressed themselves to the water. Having entered it Christian be gan to sink, but Hopeful cried. "Be of good cheer, my brother, I feel the | bottom.** But as for Christian a great darkness and horTor fell upon| him. in which he was troubled by 100-Day Literary Feast Coupon THE WASHINGTON HERALD 425 Eleventh Street N.

The Wheeler Syndicate.' One of the curious efflects of the j war has been to almost annihilate the domestic servant. Nor is this servant less state a temporary epoch. It has come to. ptay. There will probably never again be the steady flow or immigration that supplied us wiin Noras, Thelmas, Marias and Roses. The war has taught women every where that there is no such thing as any special sphere of woman's work, and that a bright husky girl can op erate a machine that has almost human intelligence itself, just as well as a man can. Therefore, women from now on, are certain to go more and more into factory work where there are shorter hours, more freedom and better pay than In domestic serv ice. And even if a servant could be ob tained, their own new standard or wages, and the general high cost ot living have put them in the luxury class that only the wealty can afford. It is back to the kitchen, then, for practically all women, and one wond ers what scheme of living is going to be evolved out of these new condi tions. The thing that women object to about doing their own work is not labor, but the fact that housewors is a never-ending job. Doubtless with the advent of highly intelligent women Into their own arriving like good Christian fcimself at the River of Death. Here when sheWas com^ the road was thronged with people to see her cross. All the banks, too. beyond the River were full of horses and chariots which were come down from abovtj to accompany her to the City Gat*. So with a beckon of farewell *o those that followed, slie entered the River. The last words she wa? heard to utter were, "Lord, I com* to be with thee." Then her children and friends re turned to their place, for that those who waited for Christiana had car ried her out of their sight. But she went in and entered at the Qate with all the ceremonies of Joy that had welcomed good Chrhitian beforte her. Copyright IfU. t* Pa* PnKHiij* Oa (The Boston Post).

Uranus is strongly ad verse and Mars is in evil place. The configuration seems to indicate much ventilation of war matters and I a tendency on the part of the public j to criticise. Mistakes of every sort are supposed to be magnified under this rule of the stars. For this reason ears should be deaf to gossip of every sort. Uranus is in an aspect held to make deception easy.
