Egypt and the Bible.
When we look upon the records of
this ancient kingdom. we find several
points of agreement. and in such a way
as to show that the Bible did not copy
from the Egyptian records.
In Exodus we read of king Pharaoh
and how he afflicted the chil ren of Is
me]. One verse which may seem to us
insignificant is Exodus i.ll; “They
built for Pharaoh treasure cities. Pith
om and Raamses."
Papyri. of the time of Rameses 11.
have been discovered, which give a
glowing description of a chain 0 forti
ed cities. which the hieroglyphice tell
us Pherao erected the two principal of
which were Pachtum and Rhamases.
Besides this the v 2? name Hebrews is
also there Breserv . and ofilcially re
corded as t e builders of the citilo This
fiipyrus is now preserved in yden.
01 and. In it one scribe reports to
his superior scribe, that in compliance
with his instructions. he has distributed
the rations among the soldiers. and also
among the Hebrews. who carrfia the
stones to the great city of king me
ses Miamnn. over of truth. Similar
distinct indications have also been
found on another Leyden papyrus. and
on a rock inscription. But the king of
Egypt did not alone oppress the He
brews. These discoveries tell as that he
made expeditions to other nations. and
brought back captives, and even op
pressed the native Egyptians. so as to
compel them to aid in building these
cities. This is simply a commen
tary on Ex. xii. 38; “ And a mixed
multitude also went 18) with them."
The Bible tells us (2 hron. 12). that
after Rehoboam. son of Solomon. had
reigned awhile he forsook the Lord. and
so the Lord sent Shishak. king of Egypt.
with a very great army.comiLosed notonly
of Egyptians. but also of übim. (Lyh
ians.) Sukkiim and Ethiopians. and he
took the fenced cities of Judah and
came to Jerusalem. This Shishak is the
first king of Egypt. if I am not mistak
en. mentioned in the Bible by any other
name than Pharaoh. On his monu
ments for the first time we read the
name of the Jewish kingdom. These
are found on one of the columns at the
palace of Karnak. where he is repre
sented as dragging at the feet of his
gods. the chiefs of thirty conquered na~
tions. and there is here mentioned the
kingdom of Judah. We are also told
that some of these conquered kingdoms
were to the south where Ethiopia and
Lybia lay. There is also given along
list of the towns of Palestine whic
were conquered. Isaiah xx.l-5 prophe
sies in the year that Sargon. ing of
Assyria sent Tartan against Ashdod
that the king of Assyria shall lead away
the Egyptians prisoners. and the Ethio
pians captives. young and old. naked
and barefoot. to the shame of Egypt.
and they shall be afraid and ashamed of
Ethiopia their expectation. and of Egypt
their glory. Nahum (iii.B-10)seemsto
refer to the same. or at leastto some
great captivity of Egypt and Ethiopia,
with the city of No- mmou. or Thebes.
as its capital. It might have been so.
For ages no one knew to the contrary.
There was no proof against it. and there
was nothing to rave that the fireplac
oies had been fulfilled. It mig thave
been in two wars, and it might have
been in one. But modern discoveries
both in Aasyria and Egypt show that all
of the statements were fulfilled in one
war. Tirhakah. kit'ilg of Ethiopia had
conquered Egypt. here was continual
war between him and the king of As
eyrin. After his death his son succeed
ed him. but the Egyfiiaus attempted to
throw off his yoke. e marched against
them. but was met by the king of As
syria. who drove him back to Thebes.
and the newly discovered records say.
"that they (the Assyrians) took pos
session of the whole cit . and sacked it
to its foundations." 'lrhey carried off
from this city. the gold. the silver and
many other things. Mention is also
made of the ca tivea, “male and female.
great and small)." When we refer to the
religion of the Egyptians. we find that
amidst their many gods. they recogniz
led one as Supreme.— who had no begin
ning. and would have no end. And if
like Moses we inquire for his name we
shall find it the sameas revealed to him.

Much apprehension has been occisloned
throughout America irom the announce
ment made by Prolessor Proctor that the
return in nineteen years at the great
comet ot last summer will cause the
destruction ol the earth. Bnt whlle
people are beeomlngsostrangei y exercised
over the annotflcement, an event at far
more serious importance. which is taking
place today. seems tobenlmostwholiy
overlooked. The nature at this most vital
subject can be best explained by relating
the following experiences.
Bishop E. 0. Haven. known to the
entire land, was unmeounlably awakened
one nlght out of a sound sleep. and lay
awake till mornln‘g. His mind seemed
unusually active. an he not only renewed
hls past life. which had been an evcntlnl
one. but lald extensive plans for the
lutnre. He did not feel especially ill. but
could not account tor the unusual actlvitg
at his brain. nor for the restlessness whic
seemed to possess hhn. in the morning he
had but little appetite. but was apparently
‘well in other respects. In a tew days.
however he began to feel restless and
morbid. although he tried earnestly to
overcome the tooling which had taken
possession of him. But try as he would
the shadow of some evil seemed to follow
him. and he was conscious or a gradual
sinking and wasting away ol all his
physical tncnlties. He had been an
earnest and diligent worker. and in his
zeal frequently over-taxed his strength.
and being absorbed in his duties falled to
observe the common symptoms with
which he was afiiicted. thus permittigf
the work of destruction to go on nnheed .
But the end tinslly came in a most
peremptory .mannsr. Shortly betore his
death he wrote a letter—the last one he
ever luditen—ln which he speaks as
tnllows. “A belief that death is near
affects diil'erent minds dlfl'erently. but

The sad and sudden death 0! Hon.
Clarkaon N. Potter is one of the most
serious warnings ever given in the long
list at innumerable cases of fatal neglect.
it is not stlielent to say that many other
brilliant men. Everett. Sumner. Chase.
Wood. Wilson and Carpenter. were swept
away by the same lstul trouble. The
question is. were these men aufliciently
careful oi their health. and could thev
have been saved? The Albany “Argus,"
in speaking of Mr. Potter’s suddeni lness
and death says:
“One oi the physicians who attended
Mr. Potter here was interviewed last
evening. He stated that Mr. Potter's
inability to converse had tor sometime
served to battle the physicians in their
efi'orts to determine the root of his illness.
It seems. however. that Mr Potter. some
two years ago. suffered a slight attactk of
kidney disease. Unwise dependence
upon a robust constitution and naturally
periect health. and neglect of proper.
clothing. doubtless sowed the seeds ot a
disease that needed but some such personal
neglect as the: ol Tuesday morning to
develop. From the symfltoma at first
shown. it was thongbtthat isonlytroublc
was nervous prostratlon; but. his long
continuance in a semi-unconscious state
led to the bellet that his illness was seated
in a chronic dltilculty more mysterious
and dangerous.”
Up to the latter part 0! last year Mr.
Edward F. Book. a member or the New
York stock exchanfin was doing business
in Wall Street. ew York. He had
every thing to enmurage him. and make
life happy. but was the victim of
unaccountable uneasiness. lllsexperlence
as described by one who knew was as
follows: "At unexpected times. and on
ou-asions when hehad the greatest reason
to feel joyous he was Irritable and
haunted with strange feelings of
discontent. He endeavored to check
these feelings and «wear pleasant. but It
required a great e art to do so; after
which he would again relapse into
his former morbid mood. This feeling
continued tor a number of months. when
he became conscious or an added
sensation of lnsitnde. lie was tired even
when resting, and although experiencing
no acute Earn. had dull. aching sensations
in his Ilm s and various parla of his body.
bhortly afterward his head began to ache
most lrequently and his stomach failed to
digest properly. Being told that he was
autl'ering from malara he Consulted an
eminent nlijycician. who informed him
that his lti neys were slightly afl‘ected.
and gave him medicine torestore them.
But he grew worse lusteadof better. He
then consulted other eminent doe-ton ot
another school and was informed that he
ind abralu ditiiculty somewhat in the
nature oi the tumor. but in spite of all
etl'orts to the contrary he continued to
grow worse. At this time his condition
was terrible. What were at first simple
symptoms had developed to terrible
troubles. lie was flushed and ieverlsh,
constantly uneasy. and yet always weary.
He had an intense appetite one day and
very little the next. lils pulse was‘
Irregular. his breathing labored. every
moment of existence was a burden.

He grew constantly worse. notwithsmnd

and finally died in the greatest agony.
After his death an examinatson as to its
actual cause was made. when his brain
was found to be in a mien condition.
‘and the reason of his ass was or an
entirely dln'erent nature.”

similar diseases. when it was. in fact.

ravages at this dlSease have been greatly
increased from the fact that unti recent
gears no way has known to prevent its
winning or check its increase when it
had become once iixed upon the system.
Within the past few years. however. we
thave learned of more than four hundred
‘pronounced cases of Bright’s disease.
