This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1884 edition. Excerpt: ... are living in days of discovery. We read lately that a missionary is about to start for the interior of Africa, who takes with him a phonograph wherewith to fix the speech and melodies of hitherto unknown tribes. The plates taken in Africa will be sent to Berlin and placed in another machine, which will reproduce the sounds received. If we transport ourselves to this chamber over the gate, the verse becomes the phonograph which, as we unroll it, emits the sounds. What had happened to bow down this strong frame, to make the strong heart break, to give those measured steps, which recall to our mind the ascent of Olivet, when this same figure went up, the centre of a procession of weepers, headcovered and barefoot? Then he was fleeing from this very son over whom he is mourning now. The ascent is more difficult still as he seeks to flee from the great grief which yet keeps even pace with him. We have not space to go back on the sad story, but without leaving our gates they seem to tell us what has happened. It was at the Gate-side, to the people assembling by hundreds and thousands, that the command went forth, at once a royal mandate and a father's word of love, 'Deal gently for my sake with the young man, even with Absalom.' It was sitting between the two gates that David waited to see if the command had been obeyed; and we read that ' the watchman went up to the roof over the gate unto the wall,' to get the best point of view to watch for the runners with the tidings. But now the tidings have been told; Cushi's words are true, and the chamber shuts its door on the aged weeper. 'The victory that day was turned into mourning.' There David remains till the bitter complaint of his commander-in-chief again forces him to take his seat in the...
