And directly the lightning began to flash and the thunder began to roar, the chickens flew up to roost, the birds skeédadled to their nests, the snakes crawled in their holes and the cows come up to be milked. It was a picture for an artist to stand and look at that dark cloud as it rolled up above the horizon, and watch the forked lightning play hide and seek along the crest of. the dark storm cloud and hear the mut- tering of the thunder in the dis- tance.

■V |4; King Davkf't Eloquence. Eloquence Is accounted the greatest of all possible gifts among the Arabs. According to Arab tradition, the most superlative degree of eloquence was attained by King David, such being the beauty of his diction, added to the poetry of his words, that when he declaimed the psalms even birds and wild beasts were spellbound, while on some occasions as many as 400 men died from the excess of delight in- duced by his reading. Hie Jacet! O eloquent, just, and mightie Death! Whoip none could advise, thou hast j perswaded; what none hath dared, Íthou hast done; and whom all the world hath flattered, thou only hath | cast out of the world and despised.
