And limbed and lighted out from bank to bank.
Thats how the stars shine during the day.”

“The oft-repeated Roman story is written in still legible characters in every quarter of the Old World, and but today, perchance, a new coin is dug up whose inscription repeats and confirms their fame. Some Judæa Capta, with a woman mourning under a palm tree, with silent argument and demonstration confirms the pages of history.”
