Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Deut., xxvii:1.)--' And Moses with the elders of Israel commanded the people, saying, Keep all the commandments which I command you this day.' The commandments which the Israelites were to keep were not arbitrary enactments imposed by the God of Moses and their God upon them alone. They were really the laws ordained for the government of the human race. The God of the Jew is the God of all mankind, and the God of the human conscience. And as cog corresponds with cog in the mechanical wheel, so the Mosaic law corresponds to the conscience of mankind. The Jews suffered national weakness and lost the high place intended for them in the mind of God because they violated these plain laws, revealed through Moses and affirmed by the very structure of human nature. We give a picture of the exterior of the Amphitheatre at Puteoli which serves to illustrate the fact that not only among the Jews, but among the Gentiles also, degradation and ruin come to the people who dare to transgress the simple laws of God."
