For a long time, and from some unknown cause. I have been troub led with a lame back, also a tired feeling on arising in the morning. I bought a bottle of Burdock Blood Bitters and before it was used my back was much better, as well as my whole system. I think it a fine medicine. F. H. Cilley. Providence, R. I., April 4-, '84-. I have been troubled with Dyspep sia for four years and coula not get relief: finally tried Burdock Blood Bitters and received im mediate relief. It is a splendid medicine for Dyspepsia. Chas. R.

I have been using Burdock Blood .Bitters tor oons ana sores on my face, and by using the Burdock have removed all eruptions so that my face is clear; this was done in a remarkably short time, little over one week. Chas. Andersok. Lancaster, Pa., March 3, '84. For many years I have been troubled with Bilious Disorder to the extent that I was scarcely ever without asevere headache at night. I was restless and seldom enjoyed a comfortable night's sleep." A short time ago I commenced the use of Burdock Blood Bitters; my headache disappeared and I have no more sleepless nights.

REPUBLICAN NOMINATIONS, FOR PRESIDENT, JAMES G. BLAINE, of Maine. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, JOHN A. LOGAN, of Illinois. A PROBLEM FOR BANKERS. TheT4jnerican Bankers' association is to hold its annual convention at Saratoga on the 13th and 14th of next month, and the meet ing bids fair to be unusually interesting. Among the subjects for discussion suggested are: The causes of the recuperative strength of our finance and commerce, the perils and safeguards of our banking system, the rela ion of the banks to the treasury, the present aspects of the silver question, the indications of the foreign demand for our securities, the prospective exports and the international ex-" changes, the decline in the rate of interest, the changes in the basis of bank circulation, tho comparative growth of national, State and private banks in various sections of the coun try, the fluctuations in the treasury balance of gold and silver, the later tendencies of usury penalties, the best means of obtaining sound bankruptcy legislation, the guaranties against def alcation and breaches of trust, the grtwth of direct trade between the West and Europe, with its influence on American banks and their methods, the proposed improve ments in bills of lading, the lessons from the recent panic comparing it with former mone tary perturbations before and since the war. If the bankers discuss all or many of these subjects they will have enough to do. But the Worcester Spy suggests another subject which might well engage their attention. It is this: With what form of security will it be best to replace the deposit of national bonds as a guaranty for the circulation of our national batiks? These bonds are now so much reduced in amount and so high in price that the bank circulation under the present limitation yields scarcely any profit. They are redeemed at the rate of a hundred millions a year, and the time is not far dis tant when it will be impossible -for the banks to obtain them. The Spy says: It should not be too great a task for the wisdom of the associated bankers to devise some substi tute for the present plan of securing the circulation of the banks which will be equally safe and always available. Of course we are not ignorant that several schemes have been proposed for this purpose, but we believe none of them has received the ap proval of the banking interest. If their as sociation can agree upon some scheme which commands the confidence of all, it might, before the bonds are exhausted, be accepted by congress. But financial legislation of im portance makes slow headway in congress, and it requires tnree or lour years at least to get it understood, and as many more to get it safely past the obstructions of prejudice and demagogism and the pressure of political measures. This suggestion is well worth the attention of the bankers. The national bank system must of course be retained and some solu tion of the circulation problem must be found. EDITORIAL NOTES. The Republican State convention is to be held in this city August 20. It will nomi nate a State ticket and presidential electors, and will also appoint a State committee. The phylloxera, which has appeared in Boumania, is spreading rapidly and the vine growers of that country are much distressed. The disease was introduced in a vine smug gled in from France in violation of the most stringent precautions that have been taken by the government. The shipment of buffalo bone3 from the plains of the West to eastern phosphate fac tories has largely increased recently, because of the reduction in the trunk line freight rates. Thousands of buffalo skeletons are gathered up by the bone men on the prai ries, especially in the valley of the Arkansas, every season. One Philadelphia manufactu rer alone received in the course of the last two months over 200 car loads. Delivered at the factory the bones are worth $25 a ton. It is not often that the supply of female school teachers does not equal the demand. But a great dearth of such teachers for the public schools of London is reported, and the number of vacancies is increasing, while applications for the places have ceased to come in. The unnecessary severity of the preliminary examinations now required is given as the reason, and it is reported to be frightening women entirely away from this field of labor, which they have so long occu pied. Some of the Italian papers are demanding a return to the death penalty on the score of economy. "Lifers" have, it is urged, their lives actually prolonged by the kind care the government takes of them. Such prisoners are not assailed by the troubles which befall men mingling in the battle of life, and have no other occupation than to eat repasts which they know will never fail them. They thus lead a regular life, protected from the ex cesses which abridge human existence, and it has been found that prisoners for life live to an age far beyond that of other prisoners. John S. Kountz, of Toledo, Ohio, the new commander-in-chief of the Grand Army, is the youngest commander ever elected. He has a good war record. When fifteen years old he went out with the Thirty-seventh Ohio regiment as a drummer boy, and at the battle of Mission Ridge he quit drumming, took a musket and fought until badly wounded, and was picked up, the nearest Union soldier to the Confederate line. In the battle he lost his left leg. On his return home he attend ed school for a year or two, and afterward held important county offices. In 1866 he became one of the charter members of For syth post in Tofcdo, and in his State has oc cupied all the important positions from post adjutant to department commander. Hebrews do pretty well in Franoe. It ap pears from an annual published in Paris that two Hebrews sit in the Senate, three in the Chamber, four in the Council of State and two in the Supreme Council of Public Edu cation. One cabinet minister, M. David Raynal, is a Hebrew, and so are no less than ten chiefs of ministerial departments, who are probably more powerful than ministers. Three prefects are Hebrews, seven sub-prefects and four inspectors-general of educa tion. The same community furnishes two generals of division, three generals of brig ade, four colonels and nine lieutenant-colonels, one judge of the Court of Cassation (the President), and ten provincial judges. The government steamer Tallapoosa has board for experimental purposes one of Edi son's inventions, called the megaphone, which is nothing more nor less than a machine for magnifying sound, a sort of telescope for the ear. The purpose of it is to enable a person to hear or carry on a conversation with peo ple at a distance, and it is constructed of two huge cone-shaped tubes eight feet long and three in diameter at the large end, which diminish to an apex in form of rubber tubes small enough to be placed in the ear. Be tween these tubes are twd smaller ones, con structed in the same manner, but not more than half the diameter. By placing the rub ber tubes in the ear and speaking through the smaller cones the person can hear and be heard at a long distance, and the purpose of the invention is to aid mariners in listening for the sound of breakers or carrying on con versation with people on shore or on other vessels at a distance. The officers of the Tallapoosa are to give it a trial. The New York Independent, which is now doing all it can to help Cleveland and Hen dricks, did not think very well of Mr. Hen dricks once. These are some of the phrases which the Independent applied to Mr. Hen dricks on July 13, 1876: "A Copperhead of the worst type;" "had no sympathy with the government in its death struggle with the re bellion;" "opposed to the Constitutional ab olition of slavery, to the granting of civil rights to the colored man and to his enfran chisement;" "as to the currency question, the mildest thing that can be said of him is that he is a two-faced trimmer;" "being a bidder for the Presidential nomination, he had no principles which he would not throw to the dogs in order to gain his end." Hav ing stated the facts, the Independent summed up as follows: "We hold that no man who was false to his country during the war, and whose conduct proves him to be the enemy of equal rights, ought to be trusted with the powers and duties of the Vice Presidency. Such a public record as that of Mr. Hen dricks ought to secure his rejection. We do not wonder that Carl Schurz should, in the Westliche Post, designate the whole thing as a 'humbug.' The American people are not at all likely to be humbugged by a trick of words, in the absence of things." FIZZLES. A violent war on soda fountains has been instituted in New York. The whole affair will probably be a fizzle. Boston Post. The lights of other days were not so good as the lights of the present; but the livers were better. New Orleans Picayune. Additional hot springs have been found in Arkansas bv dietrine, but up this wav it is hard work to dig up a hot summer. Boston Commercial Bulletin. The young man who has experienced a cool reception when visiting his best girl can sympathize with the sufferings of Arctic ex plorers. St. Paul Herald. Clausa writes to inquire: "What has given woman the reputation of being such a great talker!" We don't know, Clausa, unless it is her mouth. Yonkers Statesman.

"How glorious it is to be engaged in a purely intellectual occupation," murmured a Boston maiden, gazing rapturously into the admiring eyes of a country editor; "your own mental faculties for tools and the whole .uni verse for a workshop. Now, tell me," she added, ' 'what do you find the most difficult thing connected with your noble profession?" Paying the nands, said tne editor. uolum- bus Dispatch. . "Yes," said the noted detective, "I have seen a great many queer things in my experi ence." "Discovered a great many gigantic frauds, I suppose?" ventured an admirer. 'Well, 1 should say so," was the reply. 'But, between you and me, the most com plete piece of deception I ever' saw was a woman, young, pretty, and I would have sworn that she was an angel." "But she wasn't?"' "I should say not. She has a temper like a whirlwind, and when she gets mad the very earth seems to shake." "Good gracious! and how did yon manage to get down to her true character?" "Well, I ahem the fact is, I married her." Christian at Work. Mrs. Pulver, wife of the keeper of the Litchfield county home for pauper children, died at the home in East Canaan last Sunday after a lingering illness. The races this week in Willimantic will be held at the Fair association grounds, and will call out a large number of trotters, some of which have a national reputation.

The Canfield Rubber company of Middle town has bought a lot of land in Bridgeport and is building a shop there. A man was arrested at Danbury Tuesday while trying to kidnap a six-year-old girl named Carrie Cooper, daughter of James W. Cooper. Robert Lewis, a neighbor, saw him chasing her and interfered, and with others captured him. He gave the name of Thomas Newy. Upon searching his trunk at his boarding-place a sum of money in unsoiled bank bills was found, with several confederate bills and a bank-book of the West Side Savings bank of New York, bearing the name of Frank A. Dougherty. Mr. Kapp, with whom the man boarded, said he came there Friday night and gave his name as Dougherty from New York. He is about fifty years old. The Putnam correspondent of the Norwich Bulletin writes: The canary bird fancier Turgeon, the one who fancied birds belong ing to other parties, was tried and fined, but his case was appealed by his counsel, some of our atorneys not being quite clear, it is said, as to whether singing birds called cana ries were property or not. One of the New London Salvation Army was arrested Sunday afternoon for singing on the street contrary to police orders. Sixteen others of the Army insisted on being locked up with him and were gratified in their de sire. More summer boarders than usual are in New Canaan this season. The Warner house, which is full to overflowing, has among its guests ex-Mayor Weasels and Joel Farist with their families of Bridgeport. AROUND THE WORLD.

Tiberias, Sea of Galilee, June 18. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier : One cannot hope to say much of anything about northern Palestine in a single newspa per letter, and rather than attempt to cover a great deal of ground superficially, I shall simply essay to describe a single journey of two days as typical of the whole. We left Nablons, the modern representative of an cient Sheckem, at three o'clock yesterday morning. The journey from Jerusalem thither had been through a wild, desolate country such as would give any Occidental the blues of the most azure description in five minutes. As we emerged from Sheckem the country improved visibly, though still unworthy of even a moiety of gush. The country in that vicinity had a reputation m ijiDle times tor Dngandage, and this attrib ute seems to have been handed down reli giously through all the ages. Mr. Floyd pointed out the camping ground where he had pitched the tents of the H. M. Field party a few years ago, and related to me the ciroumstances of a burglary whereby a ladv m tne party lost several nundred dollars' worth of jewelry, which was never recovered, and letters or credit lor a good many hun dreds of pounds sterling, which were after wards found a few rods away from the tent. Of course the articles were stolen by the mil itary guard, and shared with the sheikh or pa- sna, so that restitution was out or tne ques tion. I noticed that the fellahm at work in the fields were in many cases armed, and that a band was always left behind in the village to protect it against isedomn invasion. So. also, the shepherds who were driving their nocks along tne road either carried a gun over their shoulders or picked up a rock and held it menacingly as we approached. At on place a couple or men were engaged m harvesting wheat by the roadside. Ave reined up for a short rest and Mr. Floyd in quired in Arabic, "Is that fine field of wheat yours?" "It's none of your business whose it is," was the surly reply. We did not stop to parley away further, as both of the rob bers were doubtless armed. The peasants are always courteous, because expectant of bucksheesh; while the robbers frankly an nounce their unfriendly character at the out start. The only thing to be done was for Mr. Floyd to report the matter at the next village. The processions or reliahm going to the fields just at the breaking of the dawn were quite novel in appearance. Nearly every wo man carried a cradle containing her sleeping infant balanced on her head, unsupported by either hand. In fact the women seemed to do all the lugging of whatever description. The men carried miserable sickles, with which they hacked at tiny handfuls of the grain, but pulled most of the stalks up, roots and all, by means of the left hand. The sheep in some of the fields were almost numberless, and were all equipped with ears from one foot to eighteen inches long. frequently mountains or solid rock were perforated with openings, which Mr. Floyd said were tombs. To this day the natives hew out such mountain tombs in some places. Once or twice I saw people dwelling in these ancient caverns, just as they do in the Pot ters' Field at Jerusalem. Then it flashed upon me what was meant by the passages in the gospels which speak of the two Gada renes, or Gergesenes, who were possessed of devils and "wore no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs." As I look over across this blue sheet of water to the rocky bluffs on the other side, it all seems as natural as though 1 were witnessing the epi sode. Even had the men been in full pos session of all their powers they might have dwelt in sepulchral abodes. When Ebal and Gerizim had been put ten miles behind us we reached the hill upon which are the ruins of that storied city, Sa maria. The hill is isolated and conspicuous, rising by terraces some 600 feet above the level of the encircling valleys. The modern village is very insignificant. Josephus says that it received its name of Sebastia from Herod in honor of Augustus. The city has been sacked and plundered times without number. Upon its extreme summit Ahab had his famous ivory palace, and this acro polis constituted the capital of the ten tribes until they were carried captive into Assyria. The modern remains, which are the finest I have seen in the Holy Land outside of Jeru salem, only date back nominally to the time of Herod, of course; but it is doubtless true that Herod employed much or the material of former ages in creating his splendid struc tures; in which event the debris represents a pre-Herodian antiquity. Against the city for its idolatry Micah and Hosea launched forth the invectives of prophecy: "I will make Samaria as a heap of the field and as plant ings of a vineyard; and I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley and I will dis cover the foundations thereof." "Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God; they shall fall by the Bword; their infants shall be dashed in pieces," etc. There have been numerous literal fulfillments of these predictions. Looking down into the valleys, as we rode around the hill, we frequently discerned broken columns and building rubbish. We rode completely around the hill, a cir cuit of about two miles, tracing the remains of Herod's magnificent colonnade. There were evidently four rows of columns clear around the hill supporting a porch above. The porch has vanished, but a great many of the massive columns are still standing. Oth er pillars are broken in two, lie prostrate or are utilized in the construction of stone walls. We counted nearly one hundred, and Mr. Floyd says that the great majority have either been destroyed by the natives or cart ed away to Europe to occupy niches iu mu seums. The level plaee at the extreme top of the hill was adorned by sixteen very large columns. It was doubtless in the general enclosure that the great temple of Baal stood, which was utterly destroyed by Jehu, after he had received the heads of Ahab's seventy sons in baskets at the gate of Jezreel, and mercilessly slaughtered all the priests of Baal, as recorded in the tenth chapter of 2d Kings. It was very near Samaria that Elisha dwelt when the horses and chariot of Naaman, the Damascene leper, halted before the door of his humble home. Now, as then, leprosy holds carnival in Damascus, and is regarded as incurable as it was by the King of Israel, when he rent his clothes under the impres sion that the audacious Naaman was a tool of Benhadad's to pick a quarrel with him. Grasping, penurious Gehazi was made to in herit the leprosy of the Syrian captain, which "should cleave unto his seed forever." Per haps some of the modern Nablous lepers are the inheritors of this fearful legacy of Geha zi. My impression is that it was dreadfully stupid of Naaman to put confidence in the word of a native like Gehazi. Elisha's per sistent refusal of gifts must also have been phenomenal. What terrible agony there must have been in Samaria during that memorable siege of the indefatigable Benhadad. After having traveled through the Orient it does not seem at all incredible to me that the people resort ed to doves' dung for food, until it actually became a costly luxury (2d Kings, 6:25.) Not only did Elijah and Elisha work won ders in Samaria, but even the apostles wrought miracles and preached there. The revival which was started by Philip, who far eclipsed the witcheries exercised by Si mon the Sorcerer, induced the apostles who had remained behind in Jerusalem to rein force him by sending Peter and John thither. Then was the Holy Ghost given which Simon sought to buy with money (the first impulse of an Oriental when he thinks there is no chance of getting a thing as a free gift.) We were shown the ruins of an interesting cathe- ' dral known as the Church of St. John, in which it is claimed (preposterously) the be loved disciple met his death. Apart from this foolish assumption, the ruins were arch itecturally interesting. The next site of historical interest which we passed was the hill where the Biblical Do than stood. There were no traces of modern habitations. At the base of the hill was a copious fountain where we watered our horses, forcing them in among a herd of lean eowsi that crowded about the pool. This fountain is reputed to be the one at which Joseph's brethren were wont to water their flocks; and near by was a rather questionable "pit," into which the "dreamer" might have been cast possibly was. 'It was a pleasant surprise to me to learn that the hill of Do than, or Tell Dothaim, is very close now to the great highway from Gilead to Egypt. The modern Ishmaelites, it need scarcely be said, are also just the kind of people who would make a salable commodity of any Joseph or Charlie Ross of whom they might gain possession. I will not wade into the sloughs through which so many have floun dered in trying to solve the "Balm of Gil ead" question. .It was at Dothan that Elisha was, tempo rarily sojourning when Benhadad sent a great host, with horses and chariots, to take him, because he revealed unto the king of Israel even the bed-chamber thoughts of the Syrian monarch. Poor Ge hazi, who seems to mo to have been "some thing of a clown, then had a dreadful scare; but recovered a little when he saw how his master had the people smitten with blindness and led them back to Sa maria like so many sheep! we pusned on to Jenin, a village inter esting only as being mentioned in Joshua 19:21 and 21:29, where we were to lodge for the rest of the day and that night. Je nin is the bugbear of those who do not trav ei tnrougn jraiestine in tents, mere is no convent there, and none near enough so as to divide the journey equably between Nablous and labor. Accordingly we had to lodge in the house of a native, as many hundreds have done belore us m the same despicable town. We selected one of the most decent places and then concluded to sleep outdoors in the yard! Never shall I forget that night in Je nin. It was as thrilling an experience as was ever any encounter with wild Indians on the American frontier. Among the long cata logue or our enemies were cats, dogs, bray ing donkeys, fleas, mosquitoes, gnats, sand flies and nameless other tormentors too nu merous to mention. The place fairly swarmed with cats, which -seemed determined to keep the rats away from us at least, as I was re minded a score oi times when some indig nant Tabby cantered across my face in pur suit of a fleeing rodent. The fleas, and es pecially the m visibla sandflies, were pestifer ous in the extreme. Every twenty minutes a tarnished dog would hobble in on three , sniff at our countenances, and then hold his nose meditatively aside, as if actu ally sampling us. Overhead through the hovering clouds of virulent moBquitoes we could oecasionallv catch climpses of the calm blue sky. 1 he next morning we were glad to arise early, for we had a big day's work before us. With difficulty we tore ourselves awav from our hospitable host, who was earnestly ar-. x i-j. - ' JllupWJtlUU LUUt A UUgilL IU glVO him my watch and chain, or at least a few gold sovereigns as bucksheesh, and five min utes later debouched into the plam of Es- draelon. Away in the remote distance ahead of us loomed lip Little Hermon, Tabor and Gilboa. To the left was the Carmel range, extending clear to the German colony of Haifa on the seacoast. On the top of one of the peaks we could see the convent said to be erected on the site of the Place of Sacrifice where Elijah wrought so mightily. Iu the same range Mr. Floyd pointed out to me To anach and Megiddo, mentioned in Judges fre quently. This plain is the battle ground of Palestine. It might be made to support a large population and yield most abundantly but for Bedouin invasions. We passed through many wheat fields that did honor to the soil; but the major part of the plain is uncultiva ted for the reason that no man feels sure of his crop when it is grown. We saw the black skin tents of these arrant thieves pitched in several places. Alas, when oh when will Palestine be freed from the oppres sion of Turks and the cupidity of wandering tribes! To add to the confusion the families, particularly of Jenin, are always wrangling and squabbling among themselves. 1 shall alwavs remember Jezreel with grat itude, for the reason that there the monotony of riding through Palestine was varied by an exciting rooster fight on the top of one of the mud houses. The modern village is a most wretched aggregation of filthv hovels of mud, situated on an eminence in the midst of the plain. Several large fields of tobacco and great piles of decaying manure alone served to make the place otherwise memorable. In stead of enriching the sterile soil with this manure, the natives pile it up in their door yards to breed disease. Yet once there must have been some tolerably decent buildings there, for we read that the fastidious Ahab and his ambitious and unscrupulous queen Jezebel used to live here. Thither rode that daring rebel Jehu along the valley to the north, and audaciously smote Jehoram "with his full strength, commanded the death of Ahaziah, king of Judah, and finally trod un der foot the mangled body of painted Jeze bel, which had been cast down from an up per window by.the eunuchs." This course of Jehu, as well as his subsequent conduct at Samaria, prove him to have been one of the most recklessly courageous of revolutionists. I could easily understand how several mes sengers might have been sent successively to meet the furious driver as he came across the plain; and their every motion could have been distinctly watched by the watchman. After several readings of the twenty-first chapter of First Kings, and other passages bearing upon the subject, I find myself in inextricable perplexity as to where Naboth's vineyard was that Ahab coveted and finally procured through the Jezreelite's death. Un fortunately I have no commentaries at hand in this out-of-the-way place, and am at a loss to understand whether the field was in Jez reel or Samaria. The latter part of the twenty-second chapter seems to be directly at variance with the twenty-first. God post poned the full weight of the curse for one generation. It is possible, therefore, that Naboth was slain near the pool of Samaria and that chapter xxi, verse 38, is a fulfill ment, chapter xxi, verse 19, in which event Second Kings, ix, 25, is a complete fulfill ment of the deferred sentence This would put the vineyard near Jezreel, and would in volve two "repentances" on the part of Je hovah. Evidently either view may be "proved" from the Bible. To Jezreel it was that Elijah came after his memorable sacrifice on Carmel, being pnrsued by Ahab all the way. So, also, scores of other interesting facts are recorded of this now shabby town. Standing on the hill-top and looking off over the Plain of Jezreel to the north, the landscape was the most remarkable one his torically which I have viewed since descend ing the" great pyramid. To the right were the mountains of Gilboa, the highest peak being covered wtth a rank growth of cactus, enclosing a mud-village, and the sides being wholly destitute of vegetation. Some peo ple love to regard this as a fulfillment of Da vid's lament: "Ye mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew, neither let there be rain upon you, nor fields of offerings; for there the shields of the mighty were vilely cast away." As dew and rain fall as of yore on Gilboa, the fulfillment is at best only par tial. David's lament was purely poetical, to my mind, like many other similar pas sages in the Bible which many good peo ple strive to make unnecessarily significant. To the right, glistening in the morning sun just north of Gilboa, was Gideon's Fountain, where the three hundred lapped water. What a remarkable campaign that was against the thieving Midianites! The "children of the East" were even more troublesome then than now, so that the peo ple had to dwell in caves for security. Oh for some modem Gideon! "Directly across the plain to the north was Shunem, where the Philistines were encamped in that last melancholy engagement in which the beauty of Israel was slain upon the high places." Saul was over there at the base of Gilboa, but so nervously apprehensive was he that he took his horse and rode past Shu nem around the corner of yonder mountain to Endor, there to consult the ill-divining witch. It was,of course, hazardous in the extreme to ride thus across an open plain; but I suppose his disguise and the intensity of the darkness protected him from observation, although he rode so near the enemy s camp. An, ne must have been still more apprehensive as he rode back pondering over the awful oracle which had been declared unto him by the shade of Samuel. How painful the contrast between this wretched apostate Saul and the timid lad who had hid himself "in the stuff" on his coronation day! The battle went against him as the spirit of Samuel had prophesied, and retreating up the mountain, "upon the high places" as David puts it, he fell upon his own sword, and ended his miserable career! In the distance down the vallev toward the Jordan, I could just discern Bethshan, whith er the remains of Saul and his three sons were ignobly dragged. (First Samuel, 81:10 13.) There are the ruins of an ancient amphitheatre there, Mr. Floyd says, with dens of wild beasts. The Greeks designate the place as Scythopolis. - We crossed this several miles of plain that lay between us and Shunem, whereupon we found the place to be a repetition of the filth and mud hovels of Jezreel, with the addition of a bountiful growth of cactus hedges, through which we rode, enjoying the feeble shade lent by the faded but hardy plant. I should estimate that there is perhaps three per cent, more of dung to the square inch in bnunem than m Jezreel. It was in this neighborhood that Elijah and Elisha per formed some of their most remarkable mira cles. . Elisha was such a favorite with the rood Shunamite" that the latter set aside for his use a little chamber on the wall, with a table, bed, candlestick and stool for furni ture (2d Kings iv:8 10.) In return for these acts of hospitality Elisha promised unto her the coveted son. Arterwarua 11 this boy had a sunstroke while at worK in the fields ou the plain oi jesieoi, mother rode post haste to Elisha at Carmel, over ten miles distant, to procure him to re store the lad to life. ...... Passing on from Shunem we SKircea tne west of Nain where the widow 8 son was raised, a despicable modern village, with only a single Latin convent to relieve itsunattrac tiveness. These so-called convents of the Catholics commemorate all of the most im portant sites in the Holy Land. Here, as elsewhere, there was evidently no demand for a convent, there being no population to convert; but religious zeal takes this method of manifesting itself often. Endor, still so called by the Arabs, lay perhaps a mile to the east around the base of the hill, and was even less of a place than Nain. Indeed, there were not a dozen residents in the vicinitv. I should judge. Four miles further brought us to the base of old Tabor. We didn't ascend the mountain for the reason that we were bound to do two days' work in one by pushing on to Tiberias. So we passed through the village of Deburieh at the west edge, so-named in honor of the prophetess Deborah, and rode on the north east through a thicket of dwarf oaks, a de- ' cided relief after the treeless wastes encoun tered elsewhere. Tabor is a single isolated mountain, standing 1,350 feet above the Plain of Esdraelon, and by reason of its isolation commanding a wonderful view of the whole country. It is as remarkably symmetrical in outline as Fujisan in Japan, though of course only a paltry hill when compared with that noVe mountain. Moreover, it is mound shaped from most points of view instead of conical. There are two convents, one of the Latins and one of the Greeks, at its summit, where-travelers frequently lodge. Certainly Tabor would make an ideal Mount of Trans figuration, but I have grave doubts as to whether it wa the actual peak which was honored with that most sacred spectacle, with which its name has come to be common ly associated. I have not studied the ques tion much, but it seems to me evident that Christ was on his way to Jerusalem from the "coasts of CsEsarea Philippi" via his custom ary route east of the Jo.-dan; in which event it would have been a long,unnecessary detour to go down to Tabor. We read of him im mediately afterwards at Capernaum. As no definite information is given touching which mount it was, it seems to me far more natural to presume that it was some mount between the port of Cresarea Philippi and Capernaum. Mr. Floyd is strongly in favor of Mount Hermon, as being close to a possible route. and being the most conspicuous mountain by all odds in these parts. Tabor and Hermon are both impressive theatres for such a grand spectacle, but I do not know that it was in accord with Christ's methods of manifesta tion to choose the most conspicuous site. But it matters little. Tabor s claims to dignity do not rest solely upon this hypothet ical basis. Hosea, David and Jeremiah fre quently wove its name into their poetic songs and prophecies, coupling it often with Her mon or Carmel.' Being one of the most con spicuous landmarks in this region, it is al luded to again and again in topographical references. At its top Barak and Deborah assembled the hosts of Naphtali in the cam paign against Sisera, the captain of Israel's cruel oppressor, King John. The sleeping army of the Caiman i I es was encamped on the plain back there in the direction of Taauack and Megiddo. You can see that large double mound at the entrance to the pass between the plains of Acre and Esdraelon? That is the Harosheth, toward which Sisera's dis ordered hosts retreated. The tiny thread of a brook near by is the Kishon, "that ancient river, the river Kishon," whicb, being natur ally or miraculously swollen, engulfed the tyrant's followers. We are often inclined to minify the importance of the role played in Israelitish history by this remarkable woman Deborah; a tonce a Joan of Arc, a prophetess, a poetess and a competent judge. There has evidently been a reaction in sentiment hero on the woman question since the days of Deborah and Jael. Such heroism would be impertinence now. ihe remainder or the journey to libenas did not include any places of special scriptural interest. The sun poured down his hottest blasts of furnace heat, and the way seemed very long. Here and there were the ruins of khans, caravanseries, and old Roman fortifi cations;but there was no modern village in all the distance. At length we stood at the top of the basin in which lies Galilee, and saw this faded old town 1,500 feet below us. After a tedious descent of an hour, wo reached our destination, a clean, pleasant Latin convent at the northern end of the town, where we are now stopping. H.MILE. SCROFULA.
