A teacher, accompanied by his disciples, was passing by the wayside where a leper sat. The teacher said: "Here is our brother, whom we may not touch, but he need not be shut out from truth. We may sit down where he can listen." He sat on the wayside near the leper, and his disciples stood around him.

I ask nothing unreasonable, Philippus. Do as I entreat you and leave us for a moment alone." Again the physician's eyes consulted the young girl's; this time she said: "Go!" and he immediately quitted the room. Orion closed the door. "What have I done, Paula," he began with panting breath, "that since yesterday you have shunned me like a leper that you are doing your utmost to bring me to ruin?"

I heard her two years ago at the Boston Symphony. So that is she. I recognize her now." I was oppressed by a heavy sadness. Life was a futile thing at best. A short two years and this magnificent creature, at the summit of her magnificent success, was one of the leper squad awaiting deportation to Molokai. Henley's lines came into my mind:

But all the same I don't want to have 'em right around me all the time. So one day the doctor come to look over the natives, and he come an' told me the little kid, My Dog, was a leper. "Now I wasn't attached to the kid. I ain't attached to nobody.

In this he held that, as all islands have been at their discovery found peopled by blacks, we must needs believe that humanity was first created of that color. Mrs. Johnson believed the white race descended from Gehazi the leper, upon whom the leprosy of Naaman fell when the latter returned by Divine favor to his original blackness.

And it was so, that when Jesus had concluded all these sayings, the multitudes were exceedingly struck with his teaching: for he taught them as having authority, and not as the scribes. NOW when he descended from the mount, great multitudes followed him. And lo! a leper came and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
