__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Judges, i:7.)--'And Adoni-bezek said, Three-score and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered their meat under my table : as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem and there he died.' There is an intimate correspondence between crime and requital, and there seems to be a correspondence between the particular type of crime and the order of punishment that follows. Neoptolemus murdered people at the altar, and at the altar he was murdered. Phalerus roasted men in a brazen bull. In a brazen bull he was roasted in turn. History abounds with illustrations. The picture we give of the ruins of the Serapeum at Puteoli will serve to illustrate the relation between crime and its penalty. These ruins are in the neighborhood of the Emperor Nero's greatest crime. Near here he had his mother murdered, while he in turn in after years destroyed himself by his own hand." Copyright year and photographer's name are printed at the bottom of the photograph.
