There arc hundreds of queer myths
and traditions given to account for the
fact that the sea i salt. The Arab
say that when the first pair sinned they
were living In a beautiful garden on a
tract of hind joined to a mainland by a
narrow neck or isthmus. When It be
came known to the Holy One that his
people had sinned, he went to the gar
den for the purpose of driving them out
and across the narrow neck of land
Into the patch of thorns and brambles
on the other side. Anticipating what
would be the consequence of their hei
nous crime, they had prepared to leave
their beautiful garden and bad actually
gone so far n to send the children and
goats across into the thicket.
When the Holy One appeared on the
scene, the first pair started to run, but
the woman looked back. For this the
man cursed her and for such a crime
was almost Immediately turned into a
block of salt. Compare with Genesis xix.
20. The woman, more forgiving than
her husband, stooped to pick up the
shelfless mass of salt, when Imme
diately the narrow neck of land began
to crack and break. As she touched
what had once been her companion she,
too. was turned to salt just as the neck
of the land sank and the waters rush
ed through. From that day to this, the
Arabs say. all the waters of the ocean
have rushed through that narrow chan

once our first parents, yet the bulk of
the two salty objects Is not diminished

with a mania for stealing, was brought
to trial on four indictments. .General
Butler was the prisoner's counsel. If
the prisoner was convicted on all four
indictments, he would be liable to
imprisonment for fiO years. As the
court was assembling General Butler
agreed with the counsel for the prose

quashed on condition that the prisoner
should plead guilty to the one which
charged the theft of the greatest
