Likewise it seemed a small thing that
Christ walked from Jerusalem to Naia-
reth. But It will take us four days of
hard horseback riding, sometimes on a
trot and sometimes on a gallop, to do it
this week. The way Is mountainous in
the extreme. To those who went up
to the Tip-Top house on Mount Wash
ingtoii, beforo the railroad was laid, 1
will say that this journey from Jerusa
lem to Nazareth Is like seven such
American Journeys. Hit, all up and
down and across and recrosslng Pales
tine, Jesus walked. A hub rode. David
rode. Holonion nsle. Herod nsle,
Antony rode. But Jesus walked. Witli
swollen ankles and sore muscles of the
legs, and bruised heel and stiff Joints
and panting lungs and faint bead,
along the roads, and where there were
no roads at nil, Jesus walked.
We tried to get a new horse other
tluui that on which we had ridden on
the Journey to the Dead sea, for he
had faults which our close acquaint
ancesliip had ilevelois'd. But after
some exiHTimiMitiiig witli other quod
rupeds of that NjMi-ies, and lluding that
all horses, like their riders, have faults.
we concluded to clnswe a saddle on
that beast whose faults we were most
prepansl to pity or resist. We rode
