ImprovlnR on Solomon.
The ancient City of David has come
under the new Influences of modern
tlmea. Negotiations are at present
pending for several radical and trans
forming Innovations. The first ot
these to be pushed to early completion
will probably be the woter system.
Jerusalem still depends on the collect
ed rain supply In cisterns for its wa
ter. Tho very pools built by Solomon
are sliil In v:se, although tho munici
pal system has greatly deteriorated
since his day.
Now It 13 proposed to biinsr water

has been found that this water io
pure and sufficient for the city's needs
When this bao been put Into water
mains, and all tbe residents bave been
compelled to install' it in their homes,
It w ill man a revolution in the hab- j
Its and the life of the people, and, it
Is hoped, a revolution also In the mat
ter of personal cleanliness.
Where Foreign Governments Interfere.
In order to meet the expenses of
the installation of tho waier system,
the government decided to take, aa a
special tax, tbe bides of the animals
slaughtered within the city. A com
mon sight Is a sheep tethered on the
sidewalk outside tho butcher sh-yp,
awaiting Its turn. As this bore hard
ly upon the butchers, many of whom
are registered at tbe various consul
ates as citliens of foreign countries,
these representatives of the powers
objected, so some other means of
financing the new water system will
have to be found. Men seeking the
concession are on tbe ground, and
tbe government seems determined to
carry the project to ' an early settle
xntnt. Allied to the water question is that
of 6cwage. Jerusalem has sotuelhing
in the way of an antiquated system of
sewage, but the vlultor would never
suspect It. Travelers talk of the
ElthlneBS of the streets of Jerusalem
and the listeners understand them
In the terms of the west, which gives
do inkling of th6 real situation. The
proprieties of western life do not per
mit one to speak freely on this point.
iJut tbe streets of Jerusalem are as
bad as those of the Chinese cities, If
not worse. The marvel Is that pesti
lence has not swept away the popula
tion. If, along with the proposed new
tyttem of sewage, there go vigorous
police regulations, a most welcome
change will be effected in the sights
and smells of Jerusalem.

Ing, the Temple of tbe Jews. Today
the approaching traveler Is confused
by tbe multitude of the sphes and tow
erg end noblo edlllces. Missions of
all kinds, aad husplces nnd convent3
(and monasteries and asylums abound.
Practically all of those aro supported
from abroad. Concerning the Jewish
organizations and Jewish problems
here I shall write In another article.
At present I deal only with various
Christian churches: The Greek, the
Armenian, tbe Roman Catholic, the
Syrlac, tho Coptic, and the Protestant.
There are literally hundreds of relig
ious Institutions in Jerusalem. One
eect alone spends 0,000,000 franca
every year for the upkeep of Its mon-
aateiies and other Institutions.
The Rivalry for Sacred Sites.
Every holy sight imaginable bas j
been possessed and many beyond tho
Imagination of a mere Btudent of tho
Bible. Some bave even been manu
factured, so keen is the rivalry of the
old churches to possess the holy places
that attract the pilgrims. The situa
tion has come to such a pass that vis
itors are scarcely shown tho real antiq
nltes of Jerusalem, so popular with
the professional guides are the legend
ary ones. There is cow afoot a plan
for an American Institution of popu
lar Ribllc&l archaeology, supported and
controlled in the Vnlted States, which
will provide visitors from the west
with tbe information they really de
sire. The overlay of superstition and com
mercialism and professional ecclesias
tical rivalry which one finds In Jeru
salem is quite as bud as may be seen
at Benares. It has become necessary
to station Turkish guards in the
Church of the Holy Sepulchre and la
the Church of tbe Nativity at Iiethle
heui, in order to kct-p the rival
churches from coming to blows. The
incongruity of Moslems with guns
standing guard In the birthplace of
the Prince of Peace strikes an Amer
ican vlultor with greater force than
any sanctity the spot may possess.
The vast pilgrimages from Kurope
and Astatic P.uasla are very profitable;
and as they promote national prestige,
they are encouraged by the various
Bovernme-nts which have a stake, In the

huge system or buildings, including a

Dr. Cressy I,. Wilbur, chief statisti

Tho ftinily Rible was appealed to, but
th page for births and de..ha was

much prizid by the gran! father, had
given birth to a calf cn tne very day

"Perhaps, the court orlaed. tbe
grandfather had recorded the birth of
tbe calf! The old farm book, careful

sustained the Judge'3 theory: all tbe
circumstances of tbe calf's birth were
fully recorded. And thus the birthday
of the human being waB at length es
tablished. "Talk about tbe registration ot
births in the Vnlted States'" exclaims
Dr. Wilbur, "why, for not much more
than one-half of tne total population Is
tbcro a fairly accurate registration of
deaths, to say nothing of births, of
which, we have nowhere in tbe country
reliable or complete information, and
many of tbe states are so little con
cerned about human life that s they
make no more account of tbe deaths
of their citizens than of the trs they
burn to make clearings."

The exiles found Jerusalem In ruins,
together with the SKiiounding cities
of residence and their orchards and
farms, much as they had been left by
Nebuchadnezzar's armies fifty years
before. Trees were rrow!ng wild on
tbe Mountain cf tbe Hoi.se, and the
J'tcke's prowled wropg- hoops of shat
tered masonry. Crumbling stone-work
snd chaired tlmhers niaried the site
cf palaces and towers, and choked tho
streets. The city walls and gate
were leveled with tbe ground. The
first business of the returned exiles
was, of course, to provide some kind
of ciel!ing4 for themselves and their
families. They accordingly settled in
the small cities surrounding Jerusa
lem, perhaps repnlring the houses and
Jwalla that had been ruined by the be
sieging armies years before, or con
tenting themselves with huts or tents.
The territory they controlled was of
course small, and hemmed In on all
.sides, "including only Kethlchem on
the south, while on the north their ter
ritory measured no more than twenty
five miles In length by twenty In
breadth," and even upon this en
croached tbe heathen or mougrel pop
As soon as the returned exiles had
become settled In their homes, and
;hdd planned for tbe necesHitles Of
life, within three or four months of
their arrival, they wifely arranged
for tb-e religious life which was the
very heart of the nation's existence
and tbe central motive and inaplration
of the return. It would require years
to build the temple. It tint not wise
'to wait for that. It was tssentlal that
all needful helps to devotion and re-
iigion and righteousness should be pro-
vided immediately, to sustain them in
he work to be done amid opposition
and temptations which were to try
tbelr souls aa Rold )s tried in the fire.
When the builders laid the founda
itioo of tho temple, there was a great
.celebratioB. The chant of praise was
responded to with a great burst of
leborus, vocal and instrumental, the
t substance of which was some well
known sacred refrain. There is a
.wonderful tower in music and every
atom of It should bo used lu God's
.service. The church bas scarcely be
gun to use this power in its fulneBs.
Some object to responsive singing;
some have opposed putting an orches
tra in the Sunday school, as If these
were modern novelties, instead of 3,
1000 years old. These old saints UBed
every kind of Instrument, every meth
od of singing solos, responses, chor
uses, marching songs, refrains, every
t'jlng that would give wings and in
spiration to the service of song.
Those who had known only the exile
conditions sang Hallelujahs, because
lit was an unspeakable Joy to bave
n temple at all. It meant the saving
of the nation; it meant the returning
favor of God. It was no limit to the
religious life and tbe blessings whicb.
xould grow out of it. It made possi
ble the greater glory, which fifteen
lyears later tho prophet Haggal fore
ftold, when It should be fulfilled lu the
We learn from Haggal that tbe peo.
iple were busy with building beautiful
.houses, and cultivating tbelr farms.
.They planted vineyards and orchards,
figs, pomegranates and olives. Hut all
.their efforts were failures. They
."looked for much, and lo it came to
little." For they cared more for their
own houses and farms thtn for tbe
house cf God.
Then arose tbe wise, aged prophet-
preacher Haggal, who bad been watch
ing tbe courso of affairs, and in the
nam of God, urged tbe people to
;arlse and build the temple, for the
time had come. He made four ad
dresses in tbe autumn of f20, tbe sum
.maries of which are recorded in bis
book. He began at tbe religious fes
tival of the new moon when crowds
of people were assembled, probably
in the temple area Itself, where the
altar was smoking with sacrifices, and
'the unfinished foundations and the
desolation of the city were lu full
view, while in the distance were the
homes and fields of tbe leaders.
While aged Haggnl was urging the
people to rise tip and build, a younger
prophet preacher was Inspired to en
courage the people, snd to remove
their difficulties and doubts, by a (
'rlet of emblematical visions, or ob
Ho urged all high motives for r
new ing tbe work, and enforced them
by their own experiences. They bad
tried to gain prosperity, ie relig
icn was neglected. They had sought
the fruits of obedience to God, while
they neglctied the tree tbat alone
could bear the fruit. They wanted
rich crops In their fields, while they
stopped up the springs tbat alone
could makvi them fertile. Hnggat said
to them, look at the results of your
bad pollcv. Consider your ways.
Change your plan. Put God, snd re
