__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Joel. ii:17.)--'Let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare thy people, O Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?' Smyrna is in Asia Minor, and not a great way from the scenes of some of the fearful massacres of the present time. This picture is appropriate here because it illustrates the truth referred to in the seventeenth verse of this second chapter of Joel, because this verse expresses the spirit of God's people all over the world; for it has been the prayer, perhaps, of every Christian heart, 'Spare thy people, O, Lord, and give not thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them.' Smyrna is a beautiful city of about 300,000 inhabitants. Polycarp, a disciple of Saint John, lived here and here suffered martyrdom. His grave is upon a hill overlooking the city."
