TAKE THE RICHT ROAD.
Oh, many an Id tries K turning
Alonn our life's Journey wo meet,
Where brambles and briars beset us,
And rou;!U Is the path (or our feet;
But we find, a way out of our troubles,
Aid walk with a confident heart,
Assured of sweut comfort and guidance
It we take tb r uht road at the start,
Wee only to wa'o'.t those around us,
Tbe Irleuds im J romp n.ons ot youth.
Who eauerly touglit altc r evil
And turned from the teaching! of truth;
We re only to watch and remember
The lessons Ihry daily impart,
That those are the surest to triumph
Wbo take tbe right road at tbe start.
Ah, many and many a failure
And many a heart-ache wo owe
To pitiful errors aol folllos
And blunders we made long ago;
And the way to avoid those disasters,
Te losses tbe sorrowful smart.
Is to turn from false llrlus so alluring
And take tbe right road at tbe stark
We may point to aomotlme In tbe future,
When we will our foots tops retrace.
And all tbe dark record of evil
With deeds cure and holy effaoe;
But we'll find It a fatal delusion,
And tbsy act the worthier part.
Who begin as they mean to continue,
And take the right road at tbe start

CLEOPATRA ROBED A IRtft; AND THI OVER
THROW OP Till OI.ADIATOB BY BARHACBIS,
OW the long dart of
preparation bad
passed, and the time
was at hand. I was
Initiated, and I was
crowned; so that,
although the com
mon folk knew me
not, or knew me
only as Priest of
Isis, there were In
Egypt thousands wbo
at heart bowed down to
t 'Si. me aa rnaraon. -me Hour
a'w'f was at hand, and mraoul went
" forth to meet lt For I longed
to overthrow tbe foreigner, to set
Egypt free, to mount tbo throne lUat was
my heritage, and cleanse the temples of
my Ooda. I was fain for the struggle, and
I never doubted of lta end. I looked into
the mirror, and saw triumph wsitten on
my brows. Tbe future atreU-hed a path of
glory from my feet-ay, glittering with
glory like Hihor in the aun. I oommuned
with my Mother lata; I aat within my
chamber and took counsel with my heart;
I planned new templet; I revolved great
lava that I would put forth for my people's
weal; and In my ears rang the thou is of ex
ultation that should greet victorious Pha
raoh on his throne.
I But still a little while I tarried at
.Abouthls, and, having been commanded to
to do, let my hair, that had been shorn, grow
again long and black aa the raven's wing,
. Instructing myself meanwhile In all manly
exercitet and foata of arms. Alto, for a
purpose that shall be aocn, I perfected my
elf in that magie art of the Egyptians and
. the reading of the atari, in which things,
indeed, I already bad great skilL ,
) Mow, this was tbe plan that had been
built up. My uncle Bepa bad, for awhile,
loft tbe Temple of On, giving out that bli
health bad failed him. Thence be bad
- movod down to a house in Alexandria, to
gather strength, as be said, from the
breath of tbe tea, and also to loam for him
aelf the wonders of tbe great Museum and
the glory of Cleopatra's Court There It
waa planned that I abould Join him, for
there, at Alexandria, tbe egg of the plot
waa hatching. Accordingly, when at last
tbe summons came, all things being pre
pared, I made me ready for tbe Journey
and passed Into my father' chamber to re
octve bit blotting ere I went. There eat
tbe old man, at once before be tat when ha
rebuked me because I went out to tlay the
lion, hn long white beard retting on the
table of stone and aaored writings in bit
hand. When I came In be rote from hit
aeat and would have knelt, crying: "Hall,
Pharaoh I" but I caught him by the band,
j "It la not meet, my father," I said.
"It It meet," be answered. "It la meet

ibe It at thou wilt. And to thou goett,

"Have no fear, my father,' I answered,
frowning; "my thought Is aet on other
things than red lip and amiling eye."
' "It I good," be answered ; "so may it bo
. fall. And now farewell. When next we
(tneet, may it be in that happy hour when.
iwlth all the Pricsta of the Vppor Land, I
anove down from Abouthls to do my homage

6 I embraced him, and went. Ala I I
little thought bow we ahould meet again,
t Thu It came about that onoe more I
passed down the Bile, traveling at a man
of no estate. And to euch aa were Curious
, about me It wai given out that I waa the
adopted ion of thelllgh Priest of Abouthlt,
fcavlnff been brought up to the priesthood,
and that I bad atlatt refused tha service
of the Oodt, and chosen to go to Alxan
stria te eek my fortune. , For, be It remem
bered, J was by all thote wbo knew not tbe

On the tenth night, tailing with the wind,
e .-inched the mighty ity of Alexandria,
imam
wMMB
the city of a thousand light. Above them
all towered tlia white 1'lmros, thut wonder
of the world, fro: the crown whereof a
light ll'.co the li;;ht it the uu blazed out
acriM fho of the harbor to guide
mariners on t!i: i-.' wny across the wlnedark
sea. The vfv", for it wna night, having
been moit cautiously made fust to the quay,
1 disoniburi:rd ri:U r.tood wondering at the
vast mas of houses, and confuted by the
cluuurof many tongup. For here ail peo
ples soemod to be gatborcd together, each
speaking after the fashion of hi own land.
And a I stood a young man came and
touched me on the shoulder, asking me It I
was from Aboutbi and named Harmachis.
I tald, "Yea" Thereon, bending over me,
be whispered the tooret pass word Into mine
ear, and, beckoning to two alavet, bade
them bring my apparel from tbe ship. This
they did, lighting their way through the
crowd of porter who were clamor
ing for hire. Then I followed bim
adown the quay, which wa bordered with
drinking places, where all aorta of men
were gathered, tippling wine and watching
the dancing of women, some of whom were
but scantily arrayed, and some not arrayed
at all. And to we went through the lamp-lit
houset, till at last we reached the shore of
the great harbor, and turned to the right
along a wide way paved with granite and
bordored by strong bouses, having cloisters
in front of them, tbe like of which I bad
never seen. Turning ouce more to the
right, wo came to a quieter portion of the
city, whore, ave for purtlc of strolling
revelort, the ttreet were still. Presently
buy guide halted at a house btllt of white
stone. We passed In, and, crossing a small
courtyard, entered a chamber wbero there
was a light And hero nt last I found my
uncle Bepa, most glnd to see me safe.
.When I had washed and eaten he told me
that all things went well, and that es yet
there was no thought of evil at the Court
Further, be said, it havlngxome to the eurs
of the Queen that the Priest of On
was sojourning at Alexandria, she
sent for him and closely questioned
him not a to any plot, for of that she
never thought, but M to tho rumor which
had reached her that there wa treasure
hid In the Oreat P.vrmmd that la by On.
For, being ever wasteful, sue was ever in
want ot money, and had bethought her of
opening the Pyram!d. But te laughed
at nor, tolling her tbo Pyramid was tho
burying place of the DMne Cbufu, and
that naught knew he of its secret. Then
she was angered, and swore thut so surely
as she ruled In Kypt she would tear It
down, itono by slono, end discoror tbe
secret at its heart Again ho laughed, and
in tbe words of the proverb which they
have here at Ah-rgnilrla, told her that
"Mountains live lougertlian Kinxs." There
on she smiled at hi ready answer aud let
dim go. Also my uncle bepa tUd mo that
on the I'.orrow I should ceo this Cleopatra.
For it was her birthday (as, indeed. It wa
aUo mine), aud, dressed a the Holy Isis,
she would pas In state from her palace on
tbe Lochias to the Sei-apc-um to offer a sao
riileo at tbe shrino of tho fulso God who
sits therein. Aud be said thereafter thut
the fashion whereby I should gain entrance
to the household of the Queen should be
conirired.
Then, being very weary, I wont lo rout;
but could sleep little for tbe struugenctts of
tbe place, the noises in the streets, and the
thought of tho morrow. While it waa yet
dark, I rose, climbed tjje stair to the roof of
the bouse, and walled. Presently tho sun's
rays shot out like arrows, and lit upon tie
white wonder of the marble Pbarot, where
of the light instantly tank and died, as
though, Indeed, the sua bad killed it Now
tbe rays fell upon tbe marble palaces of tho
Lochias where Cleopatra lay, and lit them
up till they flamed like a jewel set on tho
dark, cool bosom of the tea. Away tbe
llifbt new, kissing tho noma sacred dome,
wherein Alexander sleeps, touching the
high tops of a thousand palocet and tem
plet; past tbe porticoes of the great mu
seum thut loomed near at hand, striking
the lofty (brine where, carve n of ivory, Is
the Image of the false God Berapls, and at
lust seeming to lose itself In the vast aixl
gloomy Necropolis. Then, aa the dawn
gathered into day, tbe great flood
of brlghtnes overbrimming tbe bowl
of night flowed into tbe lower lands
and street, and showed Alexandria red In
the sunrise aa the mantle of a king, and
shaped aa a mantle. The Etesian wind
came up from tbe north and wept away the
vapor from tbe harbors, so that I saw their
blue water rocking a thousand ablps. I
saw, too, that mighty mole of the Hopta
stadlum; I saw the hundred ot (treets,
tbe counties bouses, the Innumerable
wealth and splendor of Alexandria, aet bke
a queen betwixt Mareotl and tbe ocean,
and dominating both, and I waa filled with
wonder. This, then, wa one city in my
herltuge of lands and cities I Well, It wa
worth tb grasping. And having looked
my full and fed my heart, aa it were, with
the sight of tplondor, I communed with
the Holy Isis and came down from the
roof.
In the chamber beneath waa my uncle
Bopa. I told him that 1 had been watch
ing the un rise over the city of Alex,
andria.
"Bo I" he said, looking at me from beneath
hliihaggy eyebrows; "and what thinkest
thou of Alexandria?"
"I think it Is like aome city of the Gods,"
I answered.
"AvI" ha renlied. flereelv. arllTnf tha
J infernal Gods-a sink of corruption, a bub
bling well of iniquity, a borne of false faith
springing from false hearts I 1 would that
not on stone of It wore left upon another
stone, and that it wealth lay deep beneath
yonder water I I would that the gull were
creaming across its alte, and that tbe
wind, untainted by a Grecian breath, iwopt
through it ruin from ocean to Mareotl I
O Royal Harmachis, let not tbe luxury and
beauty of Alexandria poison tby sense; for
in their deadly air Faith perisbo and Reli
gion can not spread her heavenly wing.
When tbe hour come for thee to rule,
Harmachis, cast down this accursed city,
and, a thy father did, set up tby throne In
tbe white walls of Memfl. For I tell thee
that for Egypt Alexandria la but a splendid
gate of ruin, and while it endures all na
tion of tb earth shall march through it to
tbe plundor of tbe land, and all false faiths
shall nestle In it and breed tbe overthrow
cf Egypt' Gods."
I made no answer, for fhere was truth In
hi word. And yet to me the city teemed
very fair to look on. After we had eaten,
my uncle told me it wa now time to set
out to view tbe march of Cleopatra, as tho
went In triumph to tbe shine of Bcrapi.
For although she would not pass till with
in two hours of the midday, yet those peo
ple of Alexandria have so great a love of
how ana Idling that had we not presently
set forth by no mean could we have come
through tbe pre of the multitude who
were alreadygathering alongthe highway
where the Queen mutt ride, Bo we wept
out to take our plaoe upon attend, fashioned
of tltauer, that had been built at the tide of
tbe great road which pleroe through tb
city, even to the Canopio Gate. For there
in my unole had purchased a right to enter,
and that dearly. ' .
And with much' druggie we won our way
through tha great crowd that were al
ready gathered in the streets, till' we
reached tbe ct Holding of limber, which
was roofed in with an awning and gayly
. .
bung with scarlet cloths. Hore we seated
ourselves upon a bench and waited for
some hours, watching the multitude press
past, shouting, singing and talking loudly
in many tongues. At length came soldlors
to clear the road, clad, after the Roman
fashion, in coats of chain 'armor. After
them marched heralds onjolning silence
(whereat the populace sang and shouted all
tbo more loudly;, and crying that Cleo
patra, tbe Queen, was coming. Then fol
lowed a thousand Cllioian aklrmlshors, a
thousand Throcians, a thousand Macedo
nians, and a thousand Gauls, each armed
after the fashion of their own country.
Then passed five hundred men of those
whoareoallod the Fenced Horsemen, for
both men and horses were altogether cov
ered with armor. Next came youths and
maidens sumptuously draped and woarlng
golden crowns, and with them images sym
bolizing Day aud Night, Morning aud Noon,
the Heavens and the Earth. After these
came many fair women pouring perfumes
on the road, and others scattering bloom
ing flowers. Now there rose a great shout
of "Cleopatra I Cleopatra I" and I held my
breath and bent forward to see her who
dared to put on the robes of Isis.
But at that moment the multitude so
gathered and thickened In' front ot whoro I
was that I could no longer clearly sou. So
in my eagerness I leapt over tho barrier of
the scaffolding, and, being very strong,
pushed my way through tbe crowd till 1
reached the foremost rank. And, as I did
so, Nubian slaves armed with thick staves
and crownod with ivy leaves ran up, strik
ing the people. One man more especially,
for he was a glunt, and, boing strong, waa
insolent beyond monsure, smiting tho peo
plo without cause, as, Indeed, is tbe wont of
low persons set In authority. For nigh to
me stood a woman, an Egyptian by her face,
bearing a child In her arms, whom the man,
snel:.g that she was weak, struck on tbe
head with his rod so that she foil prone, and
tbe poople murmured. But my , blood
rusbed of a sudden through my veins at the
sight, and drowned my reason. In- my
hand I held a staff of olive wood from
Cyprus, and as the black bruto laughed at
the sight of the stricken woman and her
babe rolling on the ground, I swung the
staff aloft and smote. So shrewdly did I
strike that the tough rod sp'.it upon the
giant's shoulder and the blood spurted
forth, staining bis trailing leaves of ivy.
Thon, villi a shriek of pain snU fury for

clenched flat between tho eyes, having
naught else wherewith to smile, and be
staggered like an ox beneath tbe first bloV
of tho priest' axe. Thereat tbe peoplo
shouted, for they love to ace a light, and the
mm wa kr.own to them a gladiator via

strength, tbe knave came on with an oath,
and, whirling his heavy staff on blgh.struek
at me in such a fashion that, had I not by
nlmhlcncs avoided the blow, I had surely
been slain. But as it chanced, the staff bit
upon tbe ground, and so heavily that it flew ;
in iragniunia. rueroon again ue muiutuue
shouted, and the great man, blind with
fury, rushed at me to smite me down. But
with a cry I sprang straight at his throat

my thumb into hi throat Round anil
round we turned, till at length ho flung him
self to the earth, trusting thus to shake mo
off. But I held on fast as we rolled over
and over on tbe ground, till at last be grew
faint for want of breath. Then I, being up
permost, drave my knee down upon his
chest, and, a I believe, abould thu havo
(lain him In my rage, bad not my uncle and
other there gathered f allon upon mh and
dragged me from him.
And meanwhile, though I knew it not,
tbe chariot wherein aat the Queen, with
elepbante going before and lion led after
It, bad come even to the apot, and because
of the tumult had been halted. I looked up,
and thu torn, panting, my white garment
stained with the blood that had rushed
from the moutb and nostril of the mighty,
Nubian, 1 for the first time saw Cleopatra
face to face. Her chariot wa all of gold,,
and drawn by mllk-wbite ateed. Therein
abe aat with two fair girls, clad in Greek
attire, atandlng one on either aide fanning
ber with glittering fan. There she sat in
tbe splendid car On her head waa the cov
ering of Isis, the golden born botween
which rested the moon' round disk and the
emblem of Osiris' throne, wltU the uroue
twined around. Beneath the covering wit
tbe vulture cap of gold, tbe blue enameled
wings, and tbe vulture bead with gemmy
eyes, under which her long, dark tresses
flowed toward her feet About ber round
ed neck waa a broad collar of gold studded
with emeralds and coral. Round her arms
and wrists were bracelet of gold (tudded
with emerald and coral, and In one band
(he held tbe holy ysnbol of life (crux ansa
ta) faxhloned of crystal, and In the other,
tbe golden rod of royalty. Her breast waa
bare, but under waa a garment that glis
tened like tbe scaly covering ot a snake,
everywhere sewn with gems. Beneath this
robe was a skirt of golden olotu, half hid by
a scarf of tbe broidered silk of Cos, fulling,
in folds even to the sandals that, fastened
with great pearls, adorned ber white and
tiny feet
All this I discerned at a glance, aa it
wore. Tben I looked upon the face that
face which seduoea Ctssar, rufnod Egypt
and waa doomed to give Augustus the,
tiepter of the world. -1 looked Upon the'
flawless Ortolan features, the rounded chin,
the full, rich Upa, the chiseled nostrils and
the eara fashioned like delicate shells. I
taw the forehead, low, broadand lovely, the '
crisped, dark bair falling in heavy waves
that sparkled In the.sun, the ariJiod eye
brows and the long bent laho. There be'
fore me wa the grandeur ot ber Imperial
shape. There burst the wonderful eye,
bued like the Oyprian violet eyes that
seemed to sleep and brood on secret thing
i
I
a night broods upon the desert, and yet aa
the night to shift, ohango and o Illumined
by gleams of sudden splendor born within
tlmr starry doplhs. All those wonders I
'tow though I havo small skill In telling
them. But even then I know , thut it was
not in these charms alone that . the
might of Cleopatra's beauty lay. Rath
er was it la a glory and a radi
ance cast through tho fleshy covering
from the fierce soul within. For she was a
Thing of flume like unto which no woman
hath ever bocn nor ever will be. Even whon
she brooded, the fire ot her quick boart
shone through her. But when she woke,
and the lightning leapt suddenly from her
eyes, and the passion-laden musio of ber
speech chimod upon hor lips, ah I then who
can tell how Cleopatra seemed? For in hel
met all tho splcudors that have been given
to woman for her glory, and all the genius
Which man has drawn from Heavon. And
with them dwelt every evllot that greater
sort which fearing nothing and malting a
mock of laws, bath taken empires for lta
place of play, and, smiling, watered the
growth of its desires with tho rich blood
of mon. In her breast they gathored, to
gether fashioning that Cleopatra whom no
man may draw, and yet whom no man, hav
ing seen, over can forgot They Cushioned
her grand as the Spirit of Storm, lovely as
Lightning, cruol aa Pestilence, yet with a
bean; and what she did Is known. Woe to
the world when such another oomos toourse
It! ,
For a moment I met Cleopatra's eyes as
she Idly bent herself to find the tumult's
cause. At first they were somber and dark,as
though thoy saw, Indeed, but the brain read
naught Then they awoke, and their very
color seemed to change aa the color
of the sea changes when the water Is
shaken. First, there wns auger written in
them ; next, un idle noting; then when she
looked upon tbe huge bulk of the man whom
I bad overcome, and knew him for the
gladiator, something, perchance, that was
not far from wonder, At the loast they
softened, though, indeed, her face chunged
not a wit But he wbo would read Cleo
patra's mind had need to, watch ht eyes,
for ber countenance varied but a little.
Turning, she said some words to her guards.
They came forward and led mo to her,
while all tho multitude wuited silently to
see mo slain.
I stood boforo her, my arms folded on my
b-uujt Overcome though I was by the
wouder of ber lovoliness, I bated In my
heart, this woman who dared to clotbo hor
sclf In the dross of Isis this usurper who
sat upon my throne, this wnr.ton squnndor
tng tbe wealth of Egypt In chariots and
perfumea When she bad looked me over
from tho head to the feet she spake In a
low full voice and In the tongue of Kbcml,
which she alone hod learned of all tbo Lag
id te:
"And who and what art thou, Egyptian
for Egyptian I see thou art who darest to
smite my slave when I make progress
through my city!"
"I am Harmucbls," I answered, boldly
"HnrmncMs the astrologer, adopted son oi
the High Priest and Governor of Abouthls,
who am come hither to aeck my fortune.
I smote thy slave, O Queen, because for no
fault he struck down the woman yonder.
Ask of those who saw, Royal Egypt"
"Harmachis I" she said; "the name bath
a high sound and thou hast a high look."
And then speaking to a soldior who bod
been all, sho bado him tell ber what had
com! to pass. This ho did truthfully, boing
friendly disposed toward me, because I had
overcome the Nubian. Thereon the turned
and spoke with the girl bearing tbe fan who
G'.ood beside her- a woman having curling
limr and shy, dark eyes, very beautiful to
sec. Tho girl answered somewhat Tben
Cleopatra bado them bring tho alave to bor.
Ho t icy led forwaid tbe giant who hod
fiinnd his breath again, and with him the
woman whom he bad smitten down.
'Thou dog I" she said, In the same low
voice; "thou coward I wbo, being strong,
didittsmlte down this woman, and, being a
coward, wast overthrown of this young man.
See. thmi, I will teach thee manners.
Henceforth, when thou smltest women, it
shall be vlih thy left arm. Ho, guards,
telzo this black coward and atrike off Ills
right hand."
And her command given, she sunk back
In bur golden chariot and again the cloud
gathered in ber eyes. But the guards
seized tii'o giant and, notwithstanding his
cries and prayers for mercy, struck off bis
bund with a sword upon the wood of the
scaffolding, and be wns carried away groan
ing. Then the procession moved on again.
As it went the fair woman with tbe fan
turned her head, caught my eye, and smiled
and nodded as though she rejoiced, whereat
1 wondered somewhat
Tbe people cheered also and made jests,
saying that I should soon practice astrology
In the palace. But as soon aa we might I
and my uncle escaped, and made our way
back to tbe bouse. All the while he rated
me for my .rashness; but wben w camo
within the chamber of the bouse he em
braced me and rejoiced greatly, because
with so little hurt to myself I had over
thrown the giant.

The Tenon of Serpent.
Tho venom of the rattlesnake has been
frequently made the subject of study, and,
while Its action aa a poison haa been gen
erally conceded, some writers bavo en
deavored to prove tta efficiency as a drug.
Burgeon U A. WaddoU, M. B., haa rocently
been availing hlmsolt of his opportunities
aa a doputy sanitary commissioner In Ben
gal to determine a point around which it
would seem that much uncertainty existed
tbe curious question of the effect of ser
pent venom on the serpents themsolves.
The experiments generally confirm and ex
tend, the principle formulated by Fontnna,
In 17(15, that the venom Is neither a poison
U the snake Itself, nor to those of Its own
species. This immunity may result from a
toleration established through frequent Im
bibition of tbo venom in the modified or at
tenuated furm,whlch It assumes wben fixed
with salivary and gastrlo Juices and ab
sorbed through tbe alimentary canal. If
this hypothesis csn be verified by fun her
experiments, it will go fur towards affording
indications for combating the action of tbe
venom on man. N. Y. Ledger.

Cancer of the Ntme.
, "My father had cancer and my husband
died of cancer. In 1875 a lump appeared
on my nose, and from its appearance and
rapid growth, I became alarmed with the
Idea that I, too had cancer. I consulted
my physician about it' and he gave me an
ointment to put on it, when this did not
releeve me, he then burnt It out, but tbe
filace would not heal. It gradually grew
unger and worae, and I had fully made
my mind up thut I must also die of cancer.
Friends prevailed on me to try Hwift'c
Specific (. B. 8.) This I finally consenled
to do. Alter taking a few bottles I was
entirely cured. Swift's Specific (8. S. 8.)
cured me whon the docterg and all other
medicines failed." Mrs. M. T Mahrn,
, Woodbury, Hull Co., Texas.
For Afteon years I was afllicted with
rheumatism, four yeurs ot which I was
compelled to go on crutches. Words are ,' .
inadequate to exprecs the suffering; I en.
dured dtirinir that time. During these
fifteen years of existence (it wns not liv
ing), I tried every known remedy without
receiving any benefit. I Anally began on
Swift's Specific (8.8.8.) which trom the
first gave me relief, and to day I am en
