'We are told that the world'ot Jupiter, is changing and becoming fit for creatures like the human race, and that Mars would do for the human family with n little change in the structure of our respiratory or- p/'f-' gans. But that there is a great World swung somewhere, vast beyond imagination, and that It is the headquarters of the unlversa, and the metropolis of immensity, and has a population In numbers vast beyond all statistics, and appointments of splendor beyond the capacity of canvas, or poem, or angel to describe, is as certain as the Bible Is authentic. Perhaps some of the ae-> tronomers with their big telescopes have already caught a glimpse of it, »¥< * 1*5,*' not knowing what It Is.

It was the old homestead •> of eternity, and all Its castles were, as old as God., Not a frost had ever chlll- ' ed the air. Not a tear had ever rolled down the chee* of one of its Inhabitants. There had never been a headache, or a sldeache, or a heartache! There had not been a funeral in the memory of the oldest inhabitant. There had never In all the land been woven a black veil, for there had never been anything to-mourn over. The passage of millions) of yoars had not wrinkled or crippled or bedimmcd any of its citizens. All the people there were in a state of eternal adolescence. What floral and pomonic richness! Gardens of perpetual blr om and orchards in unending fruitage. Had'some spirit from another world entered and asked, What 'is sin? What is bereavement? What is sorrow? What is death? the brightest of the intelligences would,have fall• ed to give.: definition!"though to study the question f lie re was silence in heaven, for half an hour. The Prince of whom I speak had honors, emoluments, acclamations, such as no other prince, celestial or terrestrial ever en joy c-d. As he passed the street' the inhabitants took off from their brows garlands of white lilies and threw them iu the way. H e never entered any of the temples without all the worshipers rising up .and bowing in obeisance. In all. the processions of the high days he was the one who evokec loudest welcome. Sometimes 01 loving talk wit! land, but at , chariot, and among the -twenty thousand that the •Psalmist spoke of, his was the swiftest and most flaming; or, as when St John described him, he took white palfrey with what prance of foot and arch of neck, and roll of mane and gleam of eye is only dimly suggested in the Apocalypse. He was not like other princes, waiting for the Father to die and then take the throne. When years ago an artist in Germany made a picture for the Royal Gallery him who MM! our souls to save.
