GARDENS OF SIDOX.
6CENE3 OF RARE BEAUTY IN THE OLD
An Ancient City Noted Fop Its Many
Grove and Gardens Phoenicia na She
Appears Today The Dress of Its People.
Their Ctaiments and Their Arms.
The dewdrope glittered In the light of
the just rising sun, and the air waa heavy
with sweet odors of hundreds of orange
and lemon trees with white blosaotas.
The scene was & picture of marvelous
fertility. Orange thickets, yellow and
white with their double burden of fruit
and flowers; lemon, apricot and fig trees,
interspersed with the more tropical palm
and date, all growing in the greatest
luxuriance. At times we saw the Queer
ehaftlike leaves of the banana, often 10
feet in length. An occasional mulberry
orchard explained the presence of an en
terprising eilk manufactory near by.
Every few yards littk brooks babbled
along, the absolute essential of this rox
nrianoe. It is not strange that this paradise of
flowers and fruit is much frequented by
the inhabitants of the crowded, dirty
town. No one can ride through these
fair gardens and fail to perceive why the
worship of the did Sidonians was so
closely connected with the grove, and
how from nature's rich profusion about
them they learned to worship the idea of
fertility, which was the essence of their
religion. The ancient Sidon, too, was
pot crowded down clse by the sea, but
was situated farther back'ia the plain,
and thus waa enriched by a ring of em
erald. On the outskirts of the gardens ws
came to the catacombs of old Sidon,
which have been excavated by the
French. In tho soft limestone rock ex
tend long series of ct ainected chambers
which have contributed a few mdo
statues, several sarcophagi and mum
mies to the very' few mementos which
we have of that enterprising people
who secured their alphalet in Egypt
and carried it to Greece, and thus trans
mitted, with certain changes, the letters
with which wo communicate our 19th
century ideas. More of the (esthetic art
of riirrnicia is to be seen today in
Athens than in nil Palestine. There in
the Mycenre room one can see the richly
inlaid daggers, tbe beautiful ornaments
and the facsimiles of the lvnten gold
cis which were also manufactured by
these urtways of oriental antiquity '.o
grace the temple of Solomon at Jerusa
lem. Every ruin of that ancient world,
whether iu Phoenicia or not, when laid
bare bears amxle testimony to the skill
and enterprise of this Semitic nation of
Leaving these old toin'.w and the
thoughts that they inspired, we were
soon studying Phoenicia as sli- irTx ars
today. On our left extended the Li-lni-non
range, while in the distance ivx
Mount Ilermon, clad in snow, glistening
like Pentelicus marble in the nii.b1;:y
sun. On tho right was the blue sea, in
to which we ere long took a plunge. Be
fore us the narrow bridle path extended,
now through fertile although only half
Cultivated fields, now ovt r a rocky prom
ontory, which often jutted into tho sea,
Habitations wero rare and generally
huddled together for protection against
the Arab incursions.
On the highways we often met these
modern rerircsentativcs and probable de
scendants "of the ar-cirat Midianites.
Tall, muscular fellows, with tire dark
Semitic countensnee and black beard,
clad with the striped abba, a square
piece of goat hair cloth folded and sewed
above the shoulders, the chief garment
of the patriarchs and tlie mantle of Eli
jah the Tishbite, Underneath they wore
the kimbez, tho long flowing tunic,
which appeared when they threw back
their abbas. About their heads was tight
ly wrapped the silken kefiyeh, crowned
with the two heavy goat hair coils, which
encircled the tops of their heads like a
lasge, black serpent. About the waist
was tightly bound the girdle, adorned
with huge, odd shaped knives, or, if he
bo a civilized Arab, with pistols.
An ugly looking speer 15 or 20 feet
long completed the outfit, an outfit well
calculated to engender green envy in the
heart of an American cowboy. A little
detour enabled us to visit the black tents
of Kedar, the abode of these perennial
campers out. It is a rectangular edifice
15 or 20 feet long, supported on poles
which 40 or 50 centuries of inherited ex
perience has taught them to skillfully
place at exactly the right angle. This
palace of thickly woven goat hair
cloth is held in position by 6trong gny
ropes. The sides are raised or lowered
at will, according to tho position of the
Bun or the direction of the wind.
Within a curtain separates the wom
en's apartment from the common re
ception room. The cooking outfit, like
the dwelling, is characterized by its se
vere simplicity, since fortunately tho
Arab does not demand a many course
dinner, and long years of practice have
taught him to dispense with a super
fluity of dishes, which is generally more
than one for a family. Chicago Inter
He Finally Paid the Fee.
A man lately went to a Lewiston cler
gyman with his betrothed to be married.
He drew the minister aside and whis
pered, "I have no money." "Well, you
can pay me when pay day comes
around." The marriage was performed.
Then the man whispered, "We want the
certificate." "Well, you can have that
when you pay the fee. I'll reduce the fee
to $2." "Well," said the man, putting
his hand into his pocket, "I may as well
pay you now," and he did. Bangor
A Sleep Walking FeaJ.
In the swampy districts of France the
men are accustomed to walk over tha
marshy ground on stilts. A sleep walker
on one occasion buckled on his stilts and
crossed a swollen torrent in the dark.
On awaking he had not the courage to
perform tho eanis feat in daylight.
The Future President (lets Hack at the
Carping .lo jse,
Jude IJlodgett tells of an occasion
when he was down at Springfield that
Abraham Lincoln appeared before
tho supremo court In a case ia which
the point at issue was a certain lien
npon a piece of property. Mr. Lin
coln's client owned the property,
according to the Chicago Times.
The presiding judge was noted as be
ing 6omewhat pedantic In tha
course of Mr. Lincoln's remarks be
had occasion to speak of the Hen re
ferred to and Invariably pronounced
ft leen' long and flat, as th.o word
is tse9j!n common conversation. This
visibly affected tbe judf6.
' 'lA-en, M. lArcolti," he gently re
monstrated. "Very rei,n said tho future presi
dent the United States, hardly
heeding the interruption. Pretty
booh "Uncle Abe" warmed up to the
exigencies of his case and, forgetting
all about the judp-e's admonition,
Came out with another 'leen,,, as
close to the vernacular as ever.
Li cn. Mr. Lincoln." the court
again took occasion to observe.
"As you please, " was Lincoln's
somewhat nettled rejoinder.
"Not as I please," came from the
bench. That is the pronunciation
favored by Webster and by Worcester.
It so obtains at Westminster hall.end
also at our own supreme court at
During this exordium on the amen
ities of legal pronunciation Lincoln
had recovered his proverbial good
humor, and as a twinkle appeared in
his eye ho bowed to the court and re
marked: -Certainly, your honor,
certainly. I only desire' to say that
if my client had known there was a
'lion' on his farm for so long a timo
I'm sure ho would not have stayed
there even long enough to bring this
suit and I should not have the pleas
ure of appearing beforo this honora
They All Parch--.
A New York photographer has
adopted a plan which was in opera
tion last summer, and is following it
with great success. Ho takes for his
field or operation the better portions
of town, and, when the sun is warm
enough to bring the children out in
force, he goes forth with his camera.
When a number of well-d: e-ed chil
dren arc encountered they are aked
if they don't want their pictures
taken. As may be imagine 1, tho
children are delighted with the sug
gestion. The photographer groups
them artistically, takes an impres
sion, and then gets the address of
each. A week or two later he calls
on the parents and offers the pic
tures, handsomely finished and moun
ted, for sale. The children sur
rounded by their companions in a
pretty group make an instantaneous
appeal to the parental eye, and it is an
exceptional case when at least one
or two arc not purchased.
Results of a Grander' Mania.
Antiquatlans'in Europe have been
greatly interested in the sale of the
fine collection of curiosities accumu
lated by the Marquis de Negron, a
Spanish grandee. For thirty veers
he almost starved himself so that he
might devote nine-tenths of hrs in
come of 120.000 a year to the pwr
cnase of books, cameos, oKl Jplate,
watches, snuffboxes, etc, and in the
course of his lifetime he filled Sereral
htmSPs witb hts treasures.
