AS HE SAW CHRIST
Pen Picture of Jesus Is Discov

Drawn by Proconsul In Palestine In
loiter Describing ''Man of
Rome.—Prom the dust of more thnn
1900 years a studious modern Roman
lias rescued a pen portrait of Jesun
'hrist. It was drawn in one of the!
letters that Puhllus Lentulus, who was
a Roman pro-consul in Palestine and!
knew the Savior in Nazareth, wrote
to a friend in Italy.
"There has appeared here a man
of stranpe virtue," Publius Lentulus:
wrote. "His disciples call him 'The i
Son of God.', He cures the sick anil
raises the dead to life. He is a very
handsome man and worthy of all
our attention. His hair is blond
and covers his shoulders In separate!
curls and is parted in the middle,!
after the fashion of the people of]
Nazareth. His forehead is smooth
and serene, without markg or
wrinkles his countenance ls*p'nk
liis nose is well formed his beard, of]
the same color as his hair, 1s parted
in the middle. i
"In his Raze is an expression of
wisdom and of openness his eyes are'

proves people but In conversation
they are amiable. His observations
are expressed with liveliness, al
though he always remains calm. No
body has ever seen him to laugh but
he often weeps. Of a good height and
straight figure he has very beautiful
hands and arms. His manner of
speaking is serious. He speaks but
little, and is modest. In short, he is
as handsome as a man may be. They
call him Jesus, the Son of Mary."
Expert antiquarians and students of
history pronounce the letters of Publi

The advent of Christmas brought the
letter quoted to the mind of an old
professor here. He translated it into

HOUSE FILLED WITH SPOOKS
Offer of Free Rent Fails to Attract
Tenants and Owner
Pfnerllle, W. Va.—The famous haunt*
ed house at "Rarden," on the Norfolk
and Western railroad, is being demol
ished by the new owner, C. W. Brown,
who purchased it in an administrator's
sale, because the spooks behaved so
badly during the last twenty-flve years
that no one would live in it.
The house is n big two-story
and door raps, rattling
structure and is one of the landmarks
of the village. According to those who
have occupied it ghosts, spooks and
spirits abound in it. It was nuilt more
than half a century ago, and the al
chairs and tables,
and pans and removal of covers from
persons occupying beds have driven
those who have occupied the place to
give it up.
The ghosts have been reported for
a quarter of a century, and during that
time a score of different families have
occupied the house, but only for short
periods. For years no one would oc
cupy it, although it was offered rent
