Following tl first scene cones tlie
preaching of John the Baptist, in
which the austere prophet sommons
tlie people to repentance in the fearful
language and imagery of the Hebrews
under the Old Covenant :
JOHN THE BAPTIST.
Repent ! repent I repent 1
For the kingdom of God It at lutnd.
And all tho land
Full of know lodge of tho Lord shall bo
At the waters cover the tat.
And encircle the continent r
Repent 1 repent 1 repent I
For lo, the hour appointed.
The hour to long foretold
By the prophets of old,
Of the coining of the Anointed,
Tho Messiah, the Paraclete.
The Desire of the Nations, is nigh I
He shall not strive nor cry, .
Nor hit voice be beard In the street ;
Nor the bruised reod shall he break,
Nor quench the smoking flax I
And many of them that sleep
In the dust of earth shall awake,
on tliat great and terrible days
And the wicked shall wall and weep,
And be blown like a smoke away.
And be melted away like wax.
Repent I repent 1 repent I

Who art thou, O man of prayer t
In raiment of camel's hair,
Begirt with leathern thong,
That here in the wilderness.
With a cry as of one In distress,
FreauBaM unto this throng 1
Art thou tho Christ?
Priest of Jerusalem,
In meekneas and humbleness,
1 deny not, 1 confess
What shall we say onto them
That sent us hero ? Reveal
Thy name, and naught conceal.
Ait thou Ellas?
Art thou that Prophet, then,
Of lamentation and woe,
W ho, as a symbol and sign
Of Impending wrath divine
Upon unlielievlng man,
Shattered the vessels of clay
In the Valley of Slaughter ? '
I am not he thou numcst !
Who art thou, and what Is the word
That here thou proclatniest?
I am the voice of one
Crying in the wilderness atone :
Prepare ye the way of the Lord ;
Moke hi paths straight
In the land that is desolate 1
If thou lie not the Christ,
Nor yet Ellas, nor lie,
That, In sign ot things to be,
Shattered the vessel or clay
In the VnUev of Slaughter.

The latchet of whose shoes

He shall baptize you with lire,
And with the Holy Ghost 1
Whose fan Is in his hand ;

He Took a Chair. A Chictuu

fact that he had lost all his possessions
in tlie nre. After llngerinir a few mo

ing, "he guessed he'd go." "Ohf"
said she starting from a beautiful con
dition of semi-uuconsclousneas, ''won't
you take a chair." "Well, I don't
care if I do,'' was his reply, and he
took the chair thanking her kindly,
and carried it home, lie says it Is a

Some young men of Fort Wayne went

he proposed to pay. Tlie game was
played by all, when it was proposed to
blindfold the waiter, and the one he
caught was to pay the bill. While the
waiter was groping around the room
the dead beats made good their escape.
' A very prompt way of taking a man
