Since the capture of .1erusalem Ih

J*rie:hIo is of little signitleanee. It eon
eiste merely of a group of scinalid
hIoVels anid a few shos, Iil about
:)00 inhabitants. Its chief strategie
value lies in the fact that It gives the
Urit ish (om) inat ion of th e valley of
.1ordan and also control of a network
of highwvays radiating from Ile town.
A further advance eastward of e..
miles, however, would take the Brit
ish to the railway from Damaseus to
M ecen, which would cut off the Turk's
line of communieation with Arabia
and greatly assist the revolting Arab
tribes which are cooperating with the
British. Jericho Is near the northern
extremity of the Dead sea, 14 miles
northeast of Jerusalem.
The encient .ericho which was sit

it was the first 'Canaanite city to he
reduced by the Israelites who, the
Biblical story relates, encompassed
its destruction by the blowing of trum
California's Good Roads.
The state of California has voted
$15,000,000 to be spent 1" perfecting
the state highway system/and not a
