ANCIENT EL ARISI
WAR REVIVES INTEREST IN CIT
Centuries Ago It Was One of the Mo
Prominent Fortified Places in the
East-Was Captured by
El Arish, one of the world's foi
gotten places until the English bon
barded it a sho-t .time ago, is the sul
ject of a war geography bulletin i:
sued by the National Geographic s<
ciety. With its large square fort an
battlemented walls, El Arish present
a much more formitble and imposin
appearance, viewed from the Medite
ranean to the north and from the De;
ert et-Tih to the south, than its in
portance has warranted in recen
years. Formerly a populous haltin;
place for the numerous caravans fol
lowing the "short desert route" fror
Egypt to Syria, its trade has wanes
materially since the completion o
modern railway connections with Jai
fa, Port Said and Alexandria. Th
town clings to the banks of the Wad
aiel-Arish, a stream which becomes
small torrent after every rain. It i!
more than 100 miles southwest of Je
rusalem and a slightly shorter dis
tance from the Suez canal, which lie!
to the west.
The recent hostilities in this area
revive a host of historical association:
dating as far back as the time of the
Pharaohs, when this town was a plac<
of exile for political prisoners, its an
cient name being Rhinokolura. It!
IWesent name is supposed to be de
rived from the custom which obtainer
here of "cutting off the noses" of male
factors whose death sentence ha
Some 30 miles to the east of El
Arish, on the Egyptian-Syrian bound
ary, lies ancient Rhaphia, now caller
Er-Rafa, where Josephus tells us that
the Roman conqueror Titus made lih
first stop on his r -ch against Jeru
salem. Here also Sargon over:
whelmed the Egyptians in the eightl
century before the Christian era, and
500 years later there was fought on
the same sands the famous battle be
tween Ptolemy Philopator and Anti
ochus, when the charging elephants of
both armies played such a spectacular
role. Of these great beasts, which
had been introduced into Syrian and
Greek warfare after Alexander's con
quests in India, much was expected.
The battle opened with a trumpeting
dash of the opposing armored moun
tains of flesh. Ptolemy's forces com
manding 73 of the terror-inspiring
chargers, while Antiochus sent into the
fray '102. With the first onslaught
practically all of Ptolemy's elephants
were captured, yet he won the day.
El Arish fell before Napoleon's
Egyptian army in September, 1798, the
credit for the city's fall being given
to France's great general, Sleber, com
mander of the vanguard which also
seized Jaffa and Gaza. It was dur
ing this campaign that Napoleon com
mitted the great atrocity at Jaffa,
shooting those prisoners whom he
could neither guard nor feed. yet
whom he feaired to release. After Na
poleon's departure Kleber concluded a
convention at El Arish with the Eng
lish admiraL. Sir William Sidney
Smith, whereby the French were to be
allowed to capitulgte and were to re
cete safe transport back to France.
This agreement was revoked by Lord
Keith, however. Whereupon Kleber,
with 10,000 men, marched to Heliopo
Uis and administered a crushing defeat
to the Turks, who outnumbered him
six to one. Had not a fanatic assas
sinated the great French tactician, Qn
the day that Napoleon won the battle
of Marengo, the fate of French arms
in Egypt might have been different.
The Admiral Smith whose agree
ment with Kleber was disallowed was
the same British officer who had
caused the signal defeat of Napoleon
before the walls of Acre, a relief work
for which a grateful parliament voted
him an annuity of ?1,000.
. In the centerof the town ofEl Arish
is a granite wall with an Inscription
in heiroglyphics perpetuating a curi
ous legend about the Egyptian god
Shu. A short distance beyond the
walls the traveler Is shown the ruins
of the building in which Baldwin I,
one of the Crusader kings of Jeru
salem, died in 1118 after an unsuccess

Retaining the Sword.
The Turks allowed General Town
shend to retain his sword-the same
honor which the Russians paid to Sir
William Fenwick~ Williams when he
was compelled to surrender at Kars.
The cust.. is not uncommon In mod
'ern history. V ien Lord Methuen was
captured biy L 'rey, his sword was
given back to . m and he was re
leased. The Spanish Admilral Cervera,
who surrendered with no boots and
very few clothes on, had managed to
bring his sword on board Capt. Bob
Evans' ship, and he was allowed to
carry It to a cabin that had been al
lotted to him. General Stoessel at
Port Arthur kept his sword, and at AL)
pomattox Court House General Granit
allowed General Lee to retain his
weapon. When Napoleon III. surren
dered at Sedan, Bismarck taunted him
with the question, "But tell me, your
majesty, whlose sword Is this? Is it

MAN'S STRENGTH A FICTION
In Reality He Has Weaker Constitu
tion and Is Less Resistant to
Enemies of Life.
It is custorao ry to speak of man as
stronger than woman. though this is
half true, half false; for although he i.
stronger of frame and muscle and
more active he is of a markedly weaker
constitution, less resistant to the ene
mies of life. And this difference
seems native and intrinsic, not due tc
externals or to the chance arrange
ments of society; for already in in
fancy the man-child is more open tc
the attack of mortal disease. Where
100 girl babies die in the first year of
life, our census shows that there dic
about 130 boys.
In the sense organs there is a differ
ence closer to what we know of mind,
and which is not wholly in accord with
the common thought that women are
more sensitive than men. They arc
more delicate of touch, and can per
ceive certain tastes. notably sweet, al
a low degree tat escapes the man, al
though for salt and sour and bitter, as
well as for smell in general, the evi*
dence is not so clear. In Miss Nelson's
experiments in California, says George
Malcolm Stratton in the Century, the
men were able to hear fainter tones,
and for all but one of several pure col
ors of the spectrum the men, contrary
to the popular belief, detected the color
at a lower Iitensity than did the
But besides this difference in the
senses when they are normal, serious
defects of eye and -ear come far morc
often to the man and to the man-chld.
Color blindness, which is usually in
nate and is therefore not to be n'scribed
to the manner in which man lives and
works, is about tenfold more frequeni
among men than among women. Blind'
ness pure and simple is also more fre'
quent among men.
Of the number reported totally blind
in our country, about 20,000 are male
and 15,500 are female. As proof thai
this great excess of the male blind is
not due entirely to the greater danger
in men's work, there is a great excess
of males among these blind at birth.
The most serious defects of hearing
also occur oftener among men; for o1
those' reported in our census as totally
deaf there are thousands more males
than there are females.

After saying his prayers at night the
seven-year-old son of parents in Larch
mont announced that lie was so tired
of the kind of life lie was compelled to
lead that he believed there was nothiing
for it but for him to run away. The
father considered the matter thought
fully and then said:
"George, if that Is the way you feel
there is mioney in my purse here; yov
may take it all."
The boy packed his grip, got to the
front door, came back on the ground of
having forgotten his toothbrush, and
went downstairs again. The parents
were much disturbed to know wh"' he
would do. IIe openedl the front door,
went out on the veranda, and all was
silence. The father and mother looked
at each other, but thought the course
they had adopted the best, and hence
did not make a move.
After 15 minutes of intense anxiety
the door opened and a boy's voice
called out: "Say, dad, if I'm going
away alone I'd better take mother
along, don't you think?"- New York
