The two bearers hurried out, Slave artisans stood ready with mortar and trowel and in a trice the lodging was closed again, for It should receive no one else alter Jacob. The father bestowed, his house closed after him, the ten brothers stared as the workmen filled the Inst hole. They bit their lips and stole glances at Joseph. They were afraid. They felt lost and their hearts sank. Jacob had been their shield. Nobody stood between them and the payment . Then they called Benjamin. "Us ten to this,"' they said, "we have a message from the departed to Joseph and you are the best to give It to him. Shortly before his death the father summoned us and said 'When I am dead, you are to say to Joseph from me: Forgive your brothers their misdeed. . . . Leave them to shear their sheep, un shorn.'" "Is that so?" queried Benjamin. I was not by when he said it." You were never by at anything," AUNT HET =By ROBERT QUILLEN; they said". "Go to him." So Benjamin went and told Joseph and though the two knew better than to believe, Joseph called the ten together. "What are you saying as though you were afraid? Am I to avenge myself? I could laugh at the thought. Sleep in peace Tomorrow in God's good providence we shall take our way back to Egypt." Thus he spoke and they Inughed and wept together and stretched out j their hands and he caressed them.; (The End) "Gather, ye children of Jacob," he cried. Jacob said, "Be blessed; songs shall stream far and wide . , .' He is gathered to his fathers," Mai-Sachme said. As the child sang of Joseph being alive, Jacob turned his head away, the brown eyes filled with tears. But then the brothers came up, pushing Benjamin forward.

He deliberately exaggerated his age and infirmities that they might weigh down the balance and strengthen his God not to give ground. He was perfectly aware that Joseph was uneasy lest l:is father behave with condescension to Pharoah, he had explicitly warned him against it. Jacob had no idea of doing so; on the other hand he brothers supervised the flocks of Pharaoh in the land of Goshen and fared well for some years. But there came a time when Jacob desired to tell Joseph of a wish he had at heart, a wish which quite l^rsonally concerned him, Jacob. He called to him Naphtall, still nimble of limbs and tongue, despite his years. "Boy," said Jacob to this sinewy man, "go down from here to the great city where my son lives, __B.eginnir>E_next-Sunday:..

Here, again. Jacob Naphtaii glibly repeated the message and betook himself to his heels. He went afoot and took several clays for the journey, otherwise Joseph would have been there at once for he traveled in his chariot with a small retinue, among them Mai-Sachme, his steward, who laid too great stress on being in this story to stop at home when Joseph went abroad.

In his turn, Joseph bowed his head beneath the ashen blessing-hand. "Most dearly beloved," Jacob began. In a voice that dropped almost to a whisper,.he spoke then of Rachel, Joseph's mother, and said to the son, "Be blessed. Songs shall stream far and wide singing the story of your life, ever anew, for after all it was a sacred play and you suffered and could forgive. So I too forgive you that you made me suffer. And God forgive us all!" He drew his hand back. Joseph stepped back among the brothers. Then Jacob's last thought went back to the cave on the field of Ephrath, and. his wish that he be buried there among his fathers "I enjoin upon you," he breathed "It is paid for, pnid by Abraham to the children of Heth with four hundred shekels in silver by weight as it Over One Hundred On Birthday List Anniversary Group for Week of September 24 Released One hundred and ten serving in the armed forces have birthday anniversaries the week of September 24, according to the 108th release of the Junior Association ol Commerce.

Mai-Sachme waited outside with the others while the exalted one was alone with his father. Jacob lay on his bed in the background for there he spent the last days of his life. . . . The Regent of Egypt knelt down when he entered Jacob's chamber and touched with his forehead the carpet of the floor. "Not so, my son," Jacob demurred. He sat up on his bed, a skin drawn over his knees. "Welcome. Take a stool here beside me that I may speak to you." When Joseph sat down, Jacob continued, -"The time has come for me to die, though I am by no means at the final stage. But when I am gathered to my fathers, I woult! like not to be.^ buried in the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall carry my bones and lay them in their tomb which is called Machpelach or the double cave at Hebron in the j land of Canaan. Swear to deal truly | with me." j Joseph swore the oath and when ! he had done so Jacob bowed him- isclf upon the bed's head and gave i thanks. 1 A few weeks later he fell ill. When Joseph heard, he called his two sons, Manasseh and Ephriam and said, "Get ready, we shall visit your grandfather." They answered: "But we have an engagement. Father and lord, to hunt gazelles in the desert." "Have you heard what I said or have you not?" he asked and they answered, "We rejoice greatly to make our grandfather a visit." Jacob was dozing in his cushions when they were announced. He asked Joseph to bring forward his sons that he might bless them. The I young dandies came forward andj bowed from the hips with e.xag- i gem ted good form. The old man wagged his head nnd made clucking noises *ith his tongue. "Lovely youth, so far as I can see," said he. "Fine and charm- Ing before God, both of them." Joseph was concerned that his him, he stretched out his feet, sank Christie road, deeper into his bed and his life stood still. They all held their breath and their lives stopped a little, too, when it came. Then Mai-Sachme, Joseph's steward, who was also a jhysician, stepped up quietly to the :ouch. He laid his ear to the quiet neart and turned to Joseph. "He is gathered to his fathers . . ." And so now the story, grain of sand by grain of sand, has run steadily and silently through the neck of the glass; it lies below in a little heap, only a few grains are left to run. Joseph, after his father's death, left to Judah, the heir, the first and Immediate funeral arrangements; after that he took matters in hand himself that Jacob might have a royal burial. With the great skill that was Egypt's, embalmers prepared the body and wrapped it in bandages four hundred ells long and strips of finest iinen. To honor his father in death with exceeding pomp; such was Joseph's dearest wish. The great procession to the cave in Hebron was of tremendous splentror. Soldiers, Nubian bowmen and the pride of Pharaoh's court preceded the catafalque and) the sons of Jacob and a host fol-j lowed it.
