On the Radio Current is a Speech with dubbed old Choir in the Test of fake broadcast,
interestingly the Sound is of the elect to cauterize the Vein to A pulse of Radicals,
in the echo of the Sheep that response is of old fraction touching the Class of Photo shoppe,
as that is the Idiot of a fashion to Pump the aspect with an a Prove environment I vomit,
the bile on the floor of empty Talk is as the gauge to the Sound board of the musical spet!!

Harvest that to the Wheats on the Spear and that Tribe of Trump to that Card of stair to Negative riped,
as the orange a Peel goes to the Charge as the Speaker sets No Channel but the bot,
is that the Perfect performer to Task of Media that the influence of Stats buts and Tee`m Umps,
that field of scab as the Picket tore sent I put this listen as the ear that Corn is bailed penced!!

At that Technical bravado of Owe what a Fart the gas to the Lean is Operator slope lens`d,
as if in the Century past the Shower has not Had the Yank a bank and eclectic the Stirrup,
yet on the Map it is dumb to Change as that is Proven by Congress in the that 30Year gap!!

The lawn of this Country Harpers are string A longs from the 30's Untouchables library of Skirt,
a badge for the Drink a Cup for the Brass Instrument book to deck that Out of stepped,
just as in the Template the Roosevelt barn to stag an Antler is a season with Cardboard as a still!!

The Racetrack biscuit in that race to skate the brain is not the bet nor the run it is the Belief,
faster on that is the Steed upon a Stable to the Scene of reality not a Docket on a stage,
Goods are often Promoted today buy the Channel grant the Sham,
that is the saddle with a Harness shark the Carts are all of You!!

Heavy to the load No not really the Speech beens had,
bought by that dagger that pro Hosts the say to stab an a lurch,
for get is the repeat of Repeat repeat the Peat,
grassy Knoll to car about the Petals of the Fetter is of glides Amongst the flours!!

Add a spit of butter drool and wallow in the swallows,
a deep Throat to scope a Scope and microfilm the exit,
in that inch to Pyle heard this is the most duper of the age`ed,
general on the pat Tent skulls are stitched with Cline!!

To that bee of bringer garp the Theme of No wants to Hear,
park that bust to chest on what has passed in Hun dread Years!!

Time date Stamped 10.52 AM to specific addition On/after published to 'note' the following **below Text site to the Original Books written Vocab.  As it references to not only misspelling it is the capture of the 'Misspelled' on their Page Appendix to the following of the EXACT written that I will now Typewrite onto this blog The Secret of the Universe is Choice held in Trust by google and Said.


THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD, as reckoned by the Greeks, were The Egyptian Pyramids ;  The Temple, Walls, and Hanging Gardens of Babylon ;  The Greek Statue of Jupiter at Olympia ;  The Temple of Diana at Ephesus ;  The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus ;  The Pharos at Alexandria ; and The Colossus of Rhodes.  All but the last three have already been described.
     The Mausoleum was a monument erected by Artemisia, Queen of Caria (B. C. 353), to her deceased husband Mausolus.  It was built of the most precious marbles, and decorated in the highest style of Grecian art.  Its cost was so immense that the philosopher Anaxagoras on seeing it exclaimed, "How much money is changed into stone !"  Not a vestige of it now remains.
     The Pharos was a lighthouse built by the first two Ptolemies on the Isle of Pharos.  The wrought stone of which it was constructed was adorned with columns, balustrades, etc., of the finest marble.  The tower, protected by a sea-wall, stood about four hundred feet high, and its light could be seen over forty miles.
     The Colossus of Rhodes was a hollow bronze statue of Apollo, one hundred and five feet high, near the Rhodian harbor.  An inner wind-ing staircase led up to the head.  It was overthrown by an earthquake {224 B. C.).  The Delphic oracle having forbade its reërection, it lay in ruins for over nine centuries, when it was sold by the Saracens to a Jew, who, it is said, loaded nine hundred camels with the metal.
     THE SEVEN WISE MEN were variously named even in Greece.  The following translation of a Grecian doggerel gives one version :--

" I'll tell the names and sayings and the places of their birth
Of the Seven great ancient Sages, so renowned on Grecian earth.
The Lindian Cleobulus said, ' The man was still the best ;'
The Spartan Chilo, ' Know thyself,' a heaven-born phrase confessed ;
Corinthians Periander taught ' Our anger is command ;'
' Too much of nothing,' Pittacus, from Mitylene's strand ;
Athenian Solon this advised, ' Look to the end of life ;'
And Bias from Prienè showed ' Bad men are the most rife ;'
Milesian Thales urged that ' None should e'er a surety be ;'
Few were these words, but, if you look, you'll much in little see."

*P R E F A C E

THE plan of Barnes Brief History Series has been thoroughly tested in the books already issued, and their extended us and approval are evidence of its general ex-cellence.  In this work the political history, which occu-pies most if not all of the ordinary school-text, is condensed to the salient and essential facts, in order to give room for some account of the literature, religion, architecture, char-acter, and habits of the different nations.  Surely, it is as important to know something about Plato as all about Cæsar ; to learn how the ancients wrote their books as how they fought their battles ; and to study the virtues of the old Germans and the dawn of our own customs in English home-life, as to trace the petty squabbles of Alexander's successors or the intricacies of the Wars of the Roses.
     The general divisions on "Civilization" and "Manners and Customs" were prepared by MRS. J. DORMAN STEELE.
     The chapters on "Manners and Customs" and "Scenes in Real Life" represent the people of history as men and women subject to the same wants, hopes, and fears as ourselves, and so bring the distant past near to us.  The "Scenes," which are intended only for reading, are the result of a careful study of the monuments in foreign museums, of the ruins themselves, and of the latest authorities on the do-mestic life of the peoples of other lands and times.  Though intentionally written in a semi-romantic style, they are accurate pictures of what might have occurred, and some of them are simple transcriptions of the details sculptured in Assyrian alabaster, or painted on Egyptian walls.
     It should be borne in mind that the extracts here made from "The Sacred Books of the East" are not comprehen-sive specimens of their style and teachings, but only gems selected from a mass of matter, much of which is absurd, meaningless, and even revolting.  It has not seemed best to cumber a book like this with selections conveying no moral lesson.
     The numerous cross-references, the abundant dates in parentheses, the blackboard analyses, the pronunciation of the names in the index, the genealogical tables, the choice reading references at the close of each general subject, and the novel "Historical Recreations" in the appendix, will be of service to both teacher and pupil.  An acknowledgment of indebtedness in the preparation of this history is hereby made to the works named in the reading references.
          It is hoped that a large class of persons who desire to know something about the progress of historic discoveries resulting from recent archæological excavations, but who have no leisure to read the ponderous volumes of Brugsch, Layard, Grote, Mommsen, Rawlinson, Ihne, Lanfrey, Froude, Martin, and others, will find this little book just what they need.
