excited men resounded through the streets of the city. Two
guards-men were endeavoring to disarm and arrest a number of
boisterous youths. The latter, evidently young men of good social
position, had been singing bacchanalian songs and otherwise
conducting themselves in a manner contrary to the spirit of
orderliness which King Josiah was striving to establish in
Jerusalem. The youths were intoxicated, and, when the two officers
sought to restrain them, they drew swords and made a reckless
attack on the guardians of the peace. Although the latter were
outnumbered, they were courageous and skillful men, and soon had
three of the party disarmed, accomplishing this without bloodshed.
The fourth and last of the marauders, a handsome and stalwart young
man apparently about twenty-one years of age, although at first
desirous of keeping out of the melee, sprang to the aid of his
companions. He cleverly tripped one of the watchmen and grappled
with the other in such a way that the officer could not use his
sword arm. This fierce onslaught gave the other members of the
party new courage, and they joined in the battle again. The
conflict might then have been settled in favor of the lawless party
but for an unexpected circumstance.
