Take a detour and pom along by the
rocky fortress of Mawida, where oc
curred something more wonderful in
the way of dnnicrutinn than you have
ever heard of, unless you liavo htuini
of that. Herod built a palace amid
these heaps of black und awful rocks,
which look like a tumbled midnight.
A jjreat band of robls'r alsiut one
thousand. Including their families -af
forward held the fortress. When the
Roman army stormed that steep, and
the bandits could no longer hold the
place, their chieftain, Kleiuar, made a
powerful sieech, w hich persuaded them
to tile before they were captured.
First the men kissed their families a
loving and tearful good by and then
pat a dagger Into their hearts, and the
women and the children were slain.
Then ten men were chosen by lot to
slay all the other men, and each man
lay down by the dead wife and chil
dren and waited l r these eiociitloiiers
to do their work. This done, one man
of the ten killed the other nine. Then
the survivor committed suicide. Two
women and llvecldldren hud hid I horn
selves and, after all was over, ramo
forth to tell of the nine hundred and
sixty slaughtered. Hreat and rugged
natural scenery inukes the most tre
