Truly it was a heart-rending sight, this poverty of the cobweb level, with its dirty old barrels, its worn-out tools, its refuse of all kinds rotting in the corners in heaps. And without adding a word they at last slowly retired, feeling extremely sad. It was only in the street that Doctor Chassaigne seemed to awaken.

"That is what my father must have exclaimed," continued Elias, coldly. "The men had cut the highwayman into quarters and buried him in a trunk of a tree. But the limbs were saved, and were hung up in different towns. If you go some time from Calamba to Santo Tomás you will still find the rotting leg of my uncle hanging from a lomboy tree.

The hills receded as they progressed, the basin widened and grew more difficult to traverse, for the ground was boggy and thickly covered with small, rotting pines. Every here and there some had fallen and lay in tangles among pools of mire. A sluggish creek wound through the hollow and the men had often to cross it; and as they plodded through the morass they found their loads intolerably heavy.

Herold thrust the point of his spade under the stone, to lift it up. Whereupon he gave a queer exclamation. "Well, that's funny!" holding the stone up in front of us. "That little thing's as heavy as as it's HEAVIER than lead!" Sir Henry picked the stone off the spade. Immediately the material crumbled in his hands, as though rotting, so that it left only the small, red pebble intact.

The groans of the thousands of sick around us, the shrieks of the rotting ones in the gangrene wards rang incessantly in our ears. As the sun disappeared, and the heat abated, the suspended activity was restored.

"Yes, it's full of it," said the squire; "that's one reason why the wood has kept without rotting. Here you two boys may as well do something for your bread and butter." Dick said something to himself answering to nineteenth-century Bother! and awaited his father's orders. "You can drag that root up to the yard. Get a rope round it and haul. Humph, no! it will be too heavy for you alone.

To-day the wild boar ranges where once the tide of human passion most turbulently flowed, and the poor herdsman, eating his noonday curds from a wooden bowl, crushes with indifferent heel the priceless bit of faience lying half hidden in the rotting leaves.

I thought it was, perhaps, a Revolutionary hoard, maybe such another collection of old coins as we had found in the room without windows. The silk dropped away like rotting leaves, but the buckskin bag was stout and in perfect condition. So many and so hard were the knots in the thongs that I had to use my penknife to cut them.

The uninterrupted growth would be best; but if that has not been attained, then the ending of winter by spring, and the suppling of the dry branches, and the resumption of the arrested growth, is the next best, and the only alternative to rotting away. And it is by such times that the Kingdom of Christ always has grown.
