Yet as I fell baclc with the rest, to tho wall I said: Tills Is tho old custom found all up uud down the Bible, footmen running bo- fore the rulers, demanding obelsanco, as in Gcnncsis before Joseph's chariot the people were commanded, "lion the lenco," and as I sec the swift feet of tho men followed by tlio swift foct of tho horses, how thoso old words of Jeremiah rushed through my mind: "If thou hast run with the footmen nnd they have wearied thee, how canst thou contcud with horses?" We saw again and again on nnd along tho Nile u boss workman roughly smito n subordinate who did not plcaso him. It la no rare occurrence to sec long lilies of men under heavy burdens passing by task-masters at short distances, lashing them as they go by Into greater speed, and then thc.so workmen, exhausted with the blusting heats of tlio day, lying down upon the bare ground, suddenly chilled with tho night nil-, crying out in prayer: "Yal Allnlil" j "Ya!

Tho governmental outrngo lins nl- wnys been a characteristic of Egyptian rulers. Taxation to the point of starvation was the Egyptian rulo in tho lilblo times as well us it Is In our time.

Served him right! To tho Egyptians the Nllo wns a deity. Its waters were then, as now, vory delicious. It was the tlnest natural beverage of nllthe earth. We have no such love for the Hudson, and Germans have no such lovo for thu Rhine, and Russians have no such love for the Volga, as the Egyptians have lovo for the Nile. Hut one day, wheu I'liaraoh comes down to this river, Moses takes a stick and whips the waters and they turn Into the pore of a slaughter-bouse, and through the .sluices and llsli-ponds tho incarnadined liquid backs up into tho land una the miilodor whelms everything from mud hovel to throne-room. Then came the frogs with horrible croak ull over everything. Then this people, cleanly almost to fastidiousness, were Infested with insects that belong to the filthy and unkempt, and tho air buzzed and buzzed with tlies, and then the dis temper started cows to bellowing, and horses to neighing, and camels to groaning, as they rolled over and ex. plred. And then boils, one of which will put a man in wretchedness, caino in clusters from the top of the head to tho solo of the foot. And then tho clouds dropped hail and lightning. And then locusts eame in, swarms of them worse than the grasshoppers ever wero in Kansas, nnd then darkness dropped for three days so that the people could not see their hand beforo their face, great surges of midnight covering them. And lust of all, on the night of the lbth of April, about eighteen hundred years before Christ, tho Destroying. Angel sweeps past, and hear it all niglit lung, the llnpl flap! flap! of his awful wings until Egypt rolled on, a great hearse, the eldest child dead in every Egyptlou home. Tho eldest son of l'huruoh expired last night in the palace, and nil along tho streets of Memphis nnd Heliopolis, nnd ull up and down tho Nile, there was a funeral wail that would have rent tho fold of the unnatural darkness if it had not boon impenetrable. The Israel it Ull homes, however, were untouched. But these homes wero full of preparation, for now is your uhnnce, O yo wronged Hebrews! Snatch up what pieces of food you can, and to tho desert! Its simoons are better than the bondngo you lnvvo Buffered. Its scorpions will not sting so sharply as tho wrongs that have stung you all your lives. Away! Tho man who wns cradled In the basket of papyrus on tho Nile will load you. Up! Upl This U tho night of your rescue. They Gather together at a signal. Alexander's armies of olden time wore led by torches on high poles, groat erosts of fires and the Lord Almighty kindles a torch not held by human hands, but by Om ipntent hand. Not niado out of straw or oil, but kindlod out of the utinosphero, such a torch us tho world never saw beforo and never will seo again. It reached from tho earth unto the heaven, n pillar of fire, that pillar practically saying; "This wayl March this way!" On that supernatural flambeau inoro thau u million refugoes set their eyes. Mosos and Aaron load on. Then came thu families of Israel. Thon camo tlio holds and (looks moving on across tho sands lo what is tlio boaoh of waters now called Bahr-ol-Kulzuni, but called In the Bible tho Red sea. And when I dipped my hands in its blue .vatcrs, tho heroics of tho Mosaic passage rolled without straw. Cities demanding In tho public school faithful and successful Instruction without giving the lencbers competent livllihood. Bricks with straw. United Slates government demanding of scnnlora and congressmen nt Washington full attend- nnco to tho Interests of the people, but on compensation which mny bnvo dono well enough when twcnty-llvo cents went as far os a dollar now, but In these times not sufllclcnt to preserve their Influence nnd respectability—bricks without straw. In many parts of tho land churches demanding of pastors vigorous sermons and sympathetic service on starvation salary, Banctillcd CIceros on four hundred dollars a year—bricks without straw. This Is one reason why there are so many poor bricks. In all departments, bricks not cveu, or bricks that crumble, or bricks that are uot bricks at nil. Work adequately paid for Is worth more than work not paid for. More straw nnd then better bricks. But in till departments there nrc Pharoahs! (Sometimes capital u I'ha- roali, and sometimes labor a I'linriMih. When capital prospers, und makes large percentage on its investment, and declines to consider the needs of the operatives, and treats them as so many human machines, their nerves no inoro than the bunds on the factory wheels —then capital is n rimroah. On tlio other baud, when workmen, not regarding the anxieties and business •truirglcs of the llrui employing them, and at n time when tho firm are doln d their best to meet an important eon- tract nnd need nil tho hands busy to accomplish it, at such u time to have his employes to make n strike nnd put their employersintoexlieine perplexity nnd severe loss—then labor becomes a l'liarouh of tho worst oppression, am: must look out for tho judgments of God. Some of tho worst of them nro on n small scnlo in households as when n man, because his arm Is strong and his voice loud, dominates his poor wife lul-'< n domestic slavery. Thero are thousands of such cases where the wife is a life-time serf, her opinion disregarded, her tastes insulted, and her existence a wretchedness, though the world may not know It. It is a Pharaoh that sits at the head of that table, and a Pharaoh that tyrannizes that homo. Thero is no more abhorrent I'liaraoh than a domestic Phnrnoh. There nrc thonsnndsof women to whom death is passage from Egypt to Canaan, because they get rid of a cruel taskmaster. What an accursed monster Is thai man who keeps his wife in dread about family expenses, and must be cautious how she introduces an nrtielo of millinery, or womanly wardrobe without humiliating consultation and apology. Who is that man acting so? Eor six months—In order to win that woman's heart, he sent her every few days a bouquet wound with white ribbon, and nn endearing couplet, and took her concerts and theaters, and helped he; into carriages as though sho wore n princess, und ran across the room ti pickup her pocket handkerchief with the speed of an antelope, and on the marriage day promised ull that the liturgy required, saying "I will!" with an emphasis tliatoxeited the admiration of all spectators, lint how ho begrudges her two cents for n postage stamp, and wonders why she rides across Brooklyn bridge when tho foot passage costs nothing. Ho thinks now sho is awfully plain, and ho acts like the devil, while ho thunders out: "Where did you got that now hat. from? That's whero my money goes. Where's my breakfast? Do yon cull that coffee! Didn't I tell yon toscwou that button? Want to seo your mntlior, do yon? You are alwnys going to seo your mother What are you whimporlng about Hurry up, now, und get my slip, persl Whore's tho newspaper?" The tono, tho look, tho impatiuueo —tho cruelty of a Pharaoh. That Is what gives so many women n cowed, down look. Pharaoh t you hud botte take your Iron heel oft that womnu'i neck or God will help you rcmovo your heel. Sho says nothing. For the sake of avoiding a scandal sho keeps silent; but her tears and wrongs have gone lirto a record that yoiuwlll lutvo to meet us certainly as Pharauh hud to meet hall, und lightning, and darkness, .und tho death angel. God novor yet gave to any man tho right to tyrannize a woman, and what a sneak you lire lo take iidvuntiif D of tho married vow, und because she can not holp herself, ami under the shelter of your own homo out-pliuraoh the Egyptian oppressor. There is something awfully wrong in a household where tho woman Is not considered as of much importance as the mau. No room in this world for any more Pharaohs. THE LATEST MS. GENERAL NOTES.

Thon came the calls of thd'lettders, and Ihey rang out so clearly that Ihoy could be heard for half a mile through thu storm.

Tho object of Ihe calls, of courso, was to koep the tlick< together, for, us could he seon through strong glassed, birds ot a hundro i species were driving along on the breast of the storm, All that came near the statue hovered around tho light in large eire'es, but some of tboui struck against the bronziorslone. There were snnd-pipers of e'very kind, 'peeling, paeting," as thoy went; goltUn- wings und other woodpeckers, with their loud and rather hoarse criei; warblers of every kind—and their signalling ran through a wide gamut of Biuuds—thrushes robins, meadow lurks, nuthatohers, und congregations of bobolinks that filled the air with hurricanes of lovely music us they swept by. Sometimes a huge bluck cloud passed along, and tlu glasses ihowed that they were blackbirds, but tbov did not chatter as they do on the edge of the for est, The leaders made all the r .oiso and preserved order. I know not how mun fljoks went by of teal, wood duck, bloc duck, mergansers, curlew, snipe, plover pewees, ptce'ie-biidi, and what not; but none could nihluke the kingfl ihers as they went, with their scolding laughter, thr .'ugh the dark.
