ORE than 5,000 years ago there were
gathered at the command of Moses,
on the plains of Assemblage in the
valley of Mount Stnai, all of the
children of Israel to listen to the
reading of the laws that were re
vealed to Moses during the "forty
days and forty nights" Lp spent in
the midst of a cloud communing with
the lGod of the "chosen people."

lojf the traveler who for days has been wearied
by the sight of nothing else but the monotonous
blue of the burning sky and the dreary desert
all about him is exhilarated, pleased and rested
by the sight of those beautiful cypress trees with
their cool, dark foliage down in the wadi-the
Arabic name for hollow or valley. One 'can
scarcely imagine anything more dreary than the
valley where these trees raise their heads above
the reek-bound hollow in the desert. They stand
in all their majesty in the gardens of the monas
tery of the Sinaitic monks on St. Catherine. one
of the mountains of the range called the "Forty
Martyrs." and great pride is taken by these men
of God in these trees, which for a thousand years
have broken the monotony of the desert waste
and have cast their welcome shade wherein the
weary traveler and the travel-stained caravan
may rest and take shelter.
For more than a year the Israelites were en
camped in the valley of Sinai when they again
took up their wanderings in search of the prom
ised land. Through Asia Minor they proceeded
to the land of Canaan, their great leader, Moses,
dying as they came in sight of the country
which God had promised to Abraham, Isaac and
One of the most important places in Asia
Minor, on the road from Constantinople to Kenta,
is the ancient town of Afum Kars-Hissar, whose
extraordinary citadel, rising 800 feet in its very
center, was the Bymantine fortress of Aeroenus,
where In 730 A. D. the Arabs, under the leader
ship of 8id el Battel el Ohasi, were defeated by
the Turks in its very shadow. To get a view of
this most plcturesque town a climb up the stalr
way cut in the rock of the citadel brings one to
the very summit where there still remain the me
diaeval Turkish fortifatioms
Like all other towns in Asia Minor, Afium
Kara-Hissar Is built of mud bricks. Its streets
run in every direction of the compass. Although
the language spoken there is Turkish, there Is
a large Armeaau population. It is as dirty a
place as one can Imagine. Overrun with half
starved. howling dogs in the day, the naight is
made hideous by their mad attempts to clean up
the refuse thrown in the streets. It is a good
place to be avoided by the fastidious. The town
boasts of a fine bazaar, churches for the Armen
ians and mosques for the Turks, as well as
schools for both classes. The Armenians have
made a commendable effort to make their part
of the town inhabitable and sanitary.
The story of the birth and infancy of the
founder and first legislator of the Israelite na
tion is one of the treasured gems of Hebrew
literature. He was of the tribe of Levi. and
his mother. Jochebed (his father's name was
Auram). hid him three months In defiance of
the edict of Pharaoh. who, to prevent the growth
of his Hebrew slave population, had ordered all
their male chlldrea to be put to death at birth.
As the danger of discovery became great. the
infant was placed in an ark on the Nile. was
found and adopted by the daughter of Pharaoh.

BEAR WAS HIS INDIAN WIFE.
Where the Hunter Shot Her le Now Called Bears
Along one of the branches of the Cheyenne
_iver in South Dakota there stands a hill called
Matoti or Bear's House. Tradition tells this
Indian legend about it:
Once upon a time an Indian hunter was out
on the chase. He wandered for many a day
through forest and plain, over hill and dale, till
he finally came to a spot where Bear's House
now is. Here he hunted for a while until one day
he met a beautiful Indian woman.
As soon as he saw her he wanted to marry
her. Iong and hard was the woolng, for the
Indian woman was unwilling to marry the
stranger. At last she consented, but she made
the stranger promise that he would never in the
future hunt or kill the bear. This animal was her
totem, sacred to her and an object of her wor
ship. The hunter falthfuly promised to obey her
wishes and to hunt all other animals and leave
the bear unharmed. Then they were married
and lived on in happiness and contentment for
many a day.
Once it happened that the hunter started on the
chase. Early he went and roamed all through
the neighboring forest without killing a single
thing. At last he Became weary and tired from
the chase and resolved to return to his wigwam.
As he was approaching his home he saw in the
dusky twilight the dark sand shaggy form of a
huge bear making straight for the wigweam.
"Now my wife will be lost," he thought, "for
if the bear reaches there before me he will
surely kill her."
Doubt at frst stayed his hand. for he remem
bered his marriage vow. But fear and anxiety
overeame his doubts. He raised his bow to his
shoulder and aimed at the animal. One arrow
sent straight to the heart laid the animal low.
When the Indian came near he saw instead of
the bear the lifeless form of his wife. The hill
where they lived is still called the Bear's House,
or Matoti HIlL
