__|a  Photograph is printed in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(II. Samuel, xxii.)--The 22d chapter of Samuel contains a Psalm of David praising God for his powerful deliverance and manifold blessings. It is a sublime specimen of poetry, and about the same time that this was written, Homer lived who was born in Smyrna. Other cities claim to be the birth-place of Homer, but the inhabitants of Smyrna confirm the opinion that their city was the place of his birth by not only paying him divine honors but by showing the place which bore the poet's name. It is interesting to compare the writings of the two poets, David and Homer, living as they did in the same age about 1000 B.C. Such a comparison reveals the infinite difference between the rational conception which the Hebrews had of God and the mythological and puerile ideas of the divine held by the Greeks."
