Boms or THE Soot___" Now, I saw in my dream,
(hat these two men went in at the gate; and, lo! as �they entered, they were transfigured, and they had raiment put on that shone like gold. There was also that met them with harps and crowns, and gave them to them; the harps to praise withal, and the crowns in token of honour.' Then I heard in my dream, that all the bells in the city rang again for joy, and that it was said unto them,«Enter ye into the joy of your Lord.' I also heard the men themselves, that they sang with a loud voice, saying, * Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sit-

There were also of them that had wings, and they answered one another without intermission, saying, 'Holy, holy, holy is the Lord 1' And after these things they shut up the gates of the city; which, when I had seen, I wished myself among them."�Pilgrim's Progress.

it were a new song before the throne�He shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal. In the street of it, and on either side of the river was the tree of life, and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations�There shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie.�Revelations,
