00t Who Tells a Very
Story With Many Si ta.li is. land `nstern in Poeltion ,, ..i.. t bkell i.. Ad tcaved In. Str5 betel on Mouns Ararat for Be S Eigwe 81,000 and 6,000 Year. Up to Date. 'he Oi1ev. Johb Joseph Noarl, D.D., L.L, i. the chaldean archdeacon of Babylon ld- Jeruoalem. who arrived at San Fran le00 the other day on the steamer China, Seoordinag to the Examiner, says he has Seen Noah's ark. As he reeopnted he has traveled, preaching and exploring in var 0ons lands, 250,000 miles. He set ont from his home in Jerusalem seven years ago, and it will be five years yet, he says, before he gets baek. In the five years he will travel 150,000 milees more, making a total in the twelve years of 400,000 miles, or a distance of more than fiteen times around the earth. In addition to the offoe hold by him, as indicated by his degrees, he is pon tifleal delegate general of Nedabor and ex. grand secretary of the metropolitan arch diocese of Persia and India. He was edu cated at Babylon, previous to which he spent much of his time in Jerusalem and sagdad. One of the things he told about was his explorations in the Mountains of the Moon, in the east of Central Africa, while trying to find the source of the Nile, in which he lound gold so plentiful that the mountains were fairly ribbed with it, and boulders along the way sparkled with the yellow (metal. The other was the discovery of the sources of the Tigris and Euphrates in Mount Ararat in Armenia, and a tremend onu vessel on top of one horn of Mount Ararat. which he regards as the veritable ark of Noah. "In his journey to the undiscovered and bitherto unexplored Mountains of the Moon," said he, "I set out from Alexandria and penetrated 2,000 miles in the interior. I went by way of Cairo, thence down to Codar, and thence to Kartoum in the Val ley of the Nile. From there I proceeded to I'lmbuotoo, in the south of the great sa hara. Timbnotoo now has between 80,000 and 70,000 people. It is very ancient and very famous, vying with Moroeco, Algiers and Tripoli in commercial trade. Greatearavansof horses, camels and elephants ply between all these eitie. I had traveling with me and com poamlr the rest of my party six Abyssinians. who were of the Greek orthodox faith. We anoved forward in all kinds of ways, somo times on donkeys, again on camels and in the high mountains on foot. It took us between five and six months to complete our explorations All this time, whenever we were among any people, no matter how barbarous. I preached to them. "About 200 miles over the desert from Timbnetoo we began to get into the gold bearing mountains. The richness of the aountains increased as we advanced until the rocks were seamed with gold. "From here I still extended my researches, preaching all the time when 1 could as I went. I had in view the searching of the sources of the two great rivers of the Bible the Tigris and Euphrates, of Mesopotamia. U Gaining facts, as I am, for a great ecolel astical history of the Eastern church - throughout the world, and couatantly visit Ing ancient museums, universities, and everywhere where manuscripts and tablets could be found, I thought it was important to search for myself for the source of thoe great rivers. I found them after mleat difealulty, and in doing this I climbed al most to the top of the horns of Mount Ararat, in Armenia. Up toward the domes of Mount Ararat is a flat valley, large in area, which may be designated a plain. It Is nearly 2,000 feet above the level of the sea. About 200 feet above the lain I found the sources of those two great iivern. 'hey are very close together. The water was extremely cold and clea-. "Then we proceeded to ascend to the top of Mount Ararat. We first chose the smaller horn. This is about 16,000 feet high while the other is, as nearly us can he as certained, about 18,000 feet in altitude. We succeeded in getting up about 14,000 feet. There was perpetual snow there, and it lay very deep. A violent wind was blowing, and the mountain was so precipitous that we could not go farther. Accordingly, we retraced our stere, and when we got down to a point from which we could cross over to the other mountain we went over to it and began climbing. We reached an alti tude of 14,000 or 15,000 feet. The snowho e also was very deep. We walked on till it was impossible to no any farther. We walked for hours and hours on the snow, and finally came down 2.000 or ::l00 feet. "It was in the month of Maach that we made up our minds that it would be irn aossible to reach the top in such weather. We must wait till the snow, or a great deal of it at least, melted. We accordingly went still further below, and remained till April. Then we were abundantly raid for all our labor, for we discovered what I feel sure was the ark, the actual work of Noah. 1 discovered it myself, being the first to see it. 1 saw it through a field glass at first, though we got so close to it that it was vis ible to the eye alone. We had reached a bight over the green grnss, and at lent'th in deep snow and over glaciers of probably 10.000 or 10;,500 feet and within 1,500 o. 2,(000 feet of the top. Presently a great object came into view through the glass. "'1 he bow and stern were clearly in view, but the center of It was buried in snow and one side of it had fallen down and was do cayed. It stood more than 1(0J feet high, and was more than 310 yards long. 'I he wood seemed very peculiar. It was dark reddish, almost iron-colored, and seemed very thick. I saw it perfsctly, especially the rear part. It is between 5,000 auld ,0;.0 years old. Would the wood last for that time? O(h, yes. It would not were it not for the snow, but that lhas preserwvid it. Were it not for that: contructed evan of hard wood as it ls, it would have been impossibl, to last ovar 2, 0 ur 3,(1i) years. As it is, it will bel I re.erved for ages and ages. peIr ha- s : -" 1 i. , ,r l30.,( l)00 yearl. "Never Iafore have I told of the discovery for publication,".' aool hIe.
