LESSONS FROM THE DVST.
Besides the Babylonian explorations
sow being conducted by Americans,
other delving in antiquities is also going,
on, notably in Egpyt. Here a work of
great value has been done by Gaeton
Maspero, who is regarded as the fore
most Egyptologist of the day, and who
has recently published a work entitled
'The dawu of Civilization." Maspero is
the man who brought to light the great
temple of Duxor, built by Aruenhotop
III, about 1530 B. C. It was hidden by
a. native village, whase rubbish had ac
cumulated over tlit roof of the temple to
a depth of forty or fifty feet, and it was
a work of great difficulty and expense to
' buy out the villagers so as to proceed
with the.enterprise of excavation. The
'' work, however, amply rewarded the
savant. He unearthed the remains of a
temple nearly 3,500 years old, which
contained sculptures of the. most deli
cate execution and statues and columns
of great beauty and architectural excel
Another great work of Maspero's was
the discovery of the mummy of Rameses
II, the Pharaoh who figures in the Bible
at the time of the Israelite captivity in
Egypt. The mummy showed him bo
little changed after his long interment
that his face would have been recognized
by any one who had known him in life;
each feature was preserved, and his
countenance revealed the prodigious age
which he had reached when his reign of
sixty-seven years came to a close. Did
the people of these far-distant times
look forward to a day centuries after
them, when she tombs, statues and tern
pies should be thrown open to the light
of another civilization, another race of
inquiring men who should be looking in
the dust for lessons of art and learning
and life? Perhaps they shared even
then in the arrogant spirit of onr mod
era self-sufficiency, fearful lest all learn
ing should die with them.
With all our boasted triumphs of
-modern civilization, we need nothing,
perhaps, so much as to be reminded of
our debt to the past. We go back to
the centuries that are buried for our
best thoughts in architecture and in
furnishings ; in science we are putting
up ramshackle structures of controversy
and speculation upon the theorems of
Egypt and of Greece; our art has noth
ing at alf toehow alongside the '"old"
masters, and our libraries, if of any
worth, have been written for. us, from
floor to. ceiling, by the dead. Of living,
more, perhaps, than anything else, do
we need, yet refuse to learn, the lessons
of forgotten centuries. " The old and
homely virtues, honesty, industry, self
denial, continence these we put away
for the easier touchings of pleasure and.
dishonesty. We run after false gods of
viciousness and ignorance, seek outside
ourselves for remedies for our own de
fects, dally with corruption in public
and private life. The certain fatal effect
of these things is written upon the tab
. lets and in the inscriptions of all an
tiquity. But if any is blind to the light
that has come into the world, the" scrip
tures teach truth of such. Oregonian.
Tomorrow will be Christmas a day
of rejoicing throughout the Christian
world; a day that, being originally kept
aa a strictly religious day, has become,
perhaps, none the less religious, since it
- as devoted to making others happy, and
( especially the children, of whom Christ
has . given the promise of reward, as
though the good done unto them were
done onto Him. The day is kept as the
anniversary of His nativity, and this is
accepted as being absolutely true by
perhaps nine-tenths of ' the civilized
world. The day of Christ's birth is not
. known, and even the year as given in
our calendar is conceded by the best au
thorities to be either three or four years
too late. There is not a month but has
had some reason advanced and some
claim made to its being the month of
Jesus' birth. That it was not December
is not only possible, bur probable, for
among other reasons, that was the mid
dle of the rainy season in Palestine, and
the shepherds would not have been
broad in the fields at night with their
flocks. The date, December 25th, can
not be traced back further than the
. middle of the fourth century; but it was
aaoptea by at. Jerome, St. Augustine
and others. There is Some 'slight evi
dence :that the birth of the Savior oc
curred in October f v boiii e that the date
was m April, but nothiog definite
enough to be satisfactory. ' ' "
Christmas day, or rather the date
corresponding to it, and following the
winter solstice, had been observed, by
different nations long before the nativity
of Jesus. By the Chaldeans and Egyp
tians the day was celebrated because the
sun had again started on its journey
northward, and at this time the Romans
kept the feasts of Saturnalia. It "is
quite probable, therefore, that the wise
leaders of the Christians, the teachers,
adopted this day, but gave their con
verts a different reason, for observing it.
However, the day has come to be ac
cepted as that of the birth of the Savior,
and is kept as such. A day wherein the
lessons of charity are taught ; -day
when business carea are forgotten, and
selfishness gives place to sympathy, to
pity, to generosity ; to a recognition of
the common brotherhood of humanity ;
to peace and goodwill. As such, long
may it continue to be observed.
The mummy of Rameses II, who was
the Pharoah that ruled Egypt in Moses'
time, is said to have retained its fea
tures so well that when found a few
years ago it was at once recognized by
Susan . B. A-th-y.
