Then follows a nruphie picture of the
great city, and the visitor's thoughts as
his eyes beheld it for the llrst tiimi.
Dr. Talumno n'ves a description of a
baptism in the Jordan. He says:
"Yesterday on horseback we left Jer
icho, and having dipped In the Dead
sea we came with a feeling that we
cannot describe upon the Jordan, a
river which more people have desired
to see than any other. On our way
wo overtook an American, who reipiest
eil me to baptize liiiu by iuiinersion In
the river Jordan. We dismounted at
the place where Joshua ami his host
oneo enissed the river dry shod We
wero near a turn In the river, and mil
fur olT from where rocks ami sand are
piled up In shuH of cathedrals, domes
and battlemimts. Wo pitched our tent,
and after proper examination of the
candidate for baptism I selected por
tlnns of Scripture appropriate. One of
our Arab attendants hail a garment
not mil i kit a baptismal robe. Willi
that garment girdled around m I
led the candidate down under the
trace on the hank, while near bv
were groups of friends nnd some
strangers who happened to bu there.
After a prayer I read of Christ's
baptism in the Jordan and tin
commission, '(io, teach all nations,
baptizing them.' The people on the
bunk then Joined in singing to the fa
miliar tune that soul stirring song. 'On
Jordan's Stormy Hank I Stand.' With
the candidate's hands in mine we wad
ed deep into the Jordan, and I then de
dared, 'In this historical river, when
the Israelites crossed, and Naainan
plunged seven times for tin cure of his
leprosy, and Christ was baptized, and
which has been used in all ages as a
symbol of the dividing line between
earth and heaven, I liaiilizo thee in the
name of the Father and of the Son and
of the Holy Ohost. Allien.' As the
candidate went down under the waves
11 d then rose I felt a solemnity thai
no nt her scene eoiihl liax'e inspired. As
the ordinance was observed under the
direction of no particular deiiomliia
tlnn of Christians, mid tin particular
church could bo n'sponsiblu for it, I
feel it my duty to report what 1 did to
tlie church universal.
Dr. Tahnngc's description of his de
pa nil re from Jerusalem is charac tcris
"Now wo lenx'0 Jerusalem for the
long Journey north thnuigh I'nlestlne
A little way out wo got on a hill and
took the lust look at Jerusalem, and I
felt and remarked it wits the lust look
at that snored city on earth, and the
next Jerusalem wo shall see will Im the

Mizpuli and tiilioon, where Joshua
commanded the sun to stand still; m,

history; on by the traditional village

their boy, about three nml a half miles
from Jerusalem. This Is the road ovei

Tlio doctor has this to say about tra
dition, history and fact before begin
iiing the real work of the book;
"Are the places that I e In Pales
tlno and Syria and the Mediterranean
Isles the genuine places of Christ!)', pa
trlumhul and apostolic nsanciatinu,'
Many of them am not, and many of
them am. Wo have no sympathy with
tlie bodwurMng of tradition. Them nre
traditions contradicted by their alisunl
Ity, but if for several generations a sen
Ihle tradition gis's on In n'ganl to
events oniiucctcd with certain places, I
am as certain of the localities a though
pen and document had fixed tlioin.
Indeed, sometimes tradition is mora to
bo deH'iidi'd on than written oointuu
nloatlou, A writer may, for bad pur
poses, iiilsn'pmsent, lulseoiiptnie, nils
tuto; but miusmalilo traditions eon
oomliiK places connected with great
ovents am apt to lie true. I liavo 110
more doubt concerning the place on
which Christ was cruellled or in which
Christ was buried than I havo
alxuit the fact that our Lord was slain
and entombed. Hut suppose traditions
contradict each otherl Then try tlieui,
tost them, com pare them as you dodoo
uiueiit. It is 110 mora ditllntilt to sep
arate traditions, true and false, than
apocryphal books from Insplmd books.
Do not use the word tradition us a
synonym for delusion, Thero Is a stir
plus of Christian inlldeb traveling in
tlio Holy hand who are from scalp to
heel surcharged with uiils'llefi. A tra
dition may be ns much divinely In
upl red as a book. The scenery of Pal
estine Is Interjolned, Intertwisted, Inter
looked with the Scriptural oeenrrenoos.
The learned Kilter, who has never
boon charged with any weakness of In
credulity, writes! 'No one can traee
without joy and wonder the fornica
tion which geography pays to the history
of the Holy Land.'
"When the brilliant Renan went to
Palestine ho was stulTed with enough
Incredulity to make a dozen Thomas
PainoN, and yet liu gives the following
e.H'rleneo: 'Tlio marvelous harmony
of the evangelieal picture, with the
country which serves as its (nunc, was
to 1110 a revelation, I had before my
eyes all ft li gospel, mutilated hut still
legible; and ever afterward lu tho re
eitids of Matthew and Mark, Instead of
an abstract being that one would say
has never existed, I saw a wonderful
human llgiirn live and move.' So said
an unbeliever. In this my visit to I'al
estine, hi tho year of our I,ord I SS) 90,
I also Ih id the landscape a commentary
Tho rivers, tho mountains, the valleys,
the lakes, tho rocks, tho trees, the
costumes of the Holy Land, agree
with Matthew and Mark nnd Luke
and John, Tho geography nnd
topography aro tho background
of the Oospel plettims. They carry
a different part of tho sanio song.

years ago cauio hero, and returned and
wrote, 'I went to Palestine an Inlldti
and eaine home a Christian.' My tes
tiniony will be that I cauio to Palestine,

Quito as iutemstliig as anything else
in tho book is this announcement
"Wandering up and down tho chief
