BIRMINGHAM BOY WRITES FROM CAIRO, EGYPT
Society and Gossip of Events to Come—Miss Elizabeth Bowie to Be a Hostess—Affairs Planned for Brides Elect—Personnel of Wedding Parties — Dr. E. M. Mason to Wed Miss Helen Steiner of Montgomery A letter from a Birmingham hoy who Is completing a tour of the world is an entertaining hit of news, especially when it is the result of the observation of so clever and alert a mentality as that of Hanson Ford. Air. Ford has been travel ing a year with his tutor, Air. Lang, pass ing the time in both study and observa tion. His letters have been interesting, especially to those who have had similar experiences, but the one received, written Jn Cairo, is a particularly interesting mis sive. He will bo home in about 10 days tc^^ond the summer with his parents, Air. and Airs. A. H. Ford. His last letter in part is as follows: “We have been in Cairo now for two days and will remain for two more and then go hack to Port Said for oilr ship. The last w'eek lia3 been a very busy one for us and we have covered a lot of In teresting and historical ground. We left Port Said for Jerusalem on the day after we left the Prtnce Ludwig in the late afternoon, arriving next morning early. These ships are very small on^s and not fitted up for comfortable travel. The first class Is the only desirable one for tourists to travel, hut we had second class tickets, so had to rough it.. It was a tough experience to say the least. We had two bunks in a cabin for four, and just across the hall .from us was an old lady w'ho was oick the whole night. That wasn’t very conducive to good sleep and the hard bunks finished it up. I enjoyed it, however, after it was over, for the op portunity it gave me of seeing the native life. All over the decks of the ship were Arabs, Egyptians and every race of peo ple in this part of the world, huddled to gether and wrapped up in their large cloaks and roses. It was certainly a pic ture to see them ai d very much In keep ing with the surroundings. After an un profitable night we landed in*Joppa, as it is in tlie Bible. From there wo went up to Jerusalem by train, arriving in the after noon. Our stay in Jerusalem is a very hard one to tell about. We saw so much and saw such a mixture of the real and legendary that it’s very difficult to give a good pictures of it. Anyway, we went to a good hotel and there managed to get a guide cheap, for it is absolutely itnpos eible to hunt out the places for yourself in these uncharted dark and winding streets. He took us around on walks dur ing the day we were there and for two drives, one out to Bethlehem and one to the Alount of Olives. In the city we saw the Temple of the Holy Sepulchre, which is beautiful in its way and very rich in jewels. wo nad all the places pointed out to us here, but the majority of them I nor no one else can believe. "I wish I could give you a clear and ac curate picture of the streets of Jerusalem. They are most interesting. Tn the olden times they' were f.l! arched o 'er and sonic of them are still so, with only a little light hole now anti then to let In light and air. They are lined on both sides with tiny' stalls, Vhlch constitute the stores and shops snd in these are sold all manner of articles from church incense to whisky. To walk down a street like this, rubbing shoulders w ith tlie half naked and dirty natives, three lines of such stores, under arches, up long flights of steps, past churches, dodging donkeys and even cam-, els now' and then, is certainly a treat and a privilege. Rut, like all other treats and privileges, should be seldom indulged in, if you respect your health and clothe*. The beggars are everywhere. 1 never saw so many in my' life. At every corner, on ev ery door step, everywhere you go. It is poor policy to give them anything, al though a look will suffice to convince you of their deplorable condition. If you give they follow up for more; if you don’t give, they follow for some. 1 got very tfred of seeing these wretched, even frightful, peo ple and was glad to see them no more' w hen I left. Another thing which is in-1 ♦ cresting to ^e, aUhough deplorable, Is | the religious fanaticism. There are five distinctly different religious sects. The Mohammedans, the Jews, the Romans, Greeks and Armenians. The last three! have each a chapel in the Church of tho Holy Sepulchre an l they hold service one after the other in their nwn chapel. When the one is holding its service it has to he guarded by Turkish soldiers in order to keep <he other two from break ing up the meeting and causing a riot. It Is the same with all three, and the feel ing between, or -atnor against, the Chris tians js very Interse, much more so be cause of the Halkan war results. \Ve saw a very good instance of this feeling while there. Every Friday the Romans have a procession, starting at the first sta tion and going through to the fourteenth, the stations marking different incidents in the walk of Christ from Herod’s judg ment hall to Calvary. The first is in the barracks of the Turkish army, and aft *r holding a service over the saeret spot they arose and were going away. The Mohammedan soldiers got wrought up and ran out and stamped and spit on the spot where they «md been holding service. It is just instances like this that start a Christian massacre. “I didn't feel a hit too solid in my shoes till 4 had put a good distance be tween me and the barracks. For a de tailed description of all we saw I musi wait till t get home, for there Is far too much to write about. Our trip back from Jaffa was much better than golnfi. for the boat was an English one and much more comfortable. We only stayed in Port Said for a couple of hours and then got a train here to Cairo. Of all the rides on a train T have exer tak en this was the hottest, dirtiest and most disagreeable. And yet It was in teresting. The route follows the Suez canal for some piece, straight through the desert. All you see from the train is hot, blistering sand nnd you can see the waves of beat on the horizon. Sit ting in the railroad carriage we could feel the radiation of the heat on our faces to a remarkable extent; it was like looking into a furnace to look out of the window. I never experienced such intense heat. How a human can ever live on the desert I can’t see. We nearly perished in the train. But you pass through the real Egyptian coun try. After a couple of hours in the desert you come into a wide stretch of reclaimed land surrounding the capital of Cairo. Here you see the natives at work in the Helds, their methods, crude as they are, of irrigation, the fields of “corn,’’ mostly wheat,-the cotton Helds and the little mud villages. It is all new to us and therefore interesting. One of the funniest things is to see a stately and dignified old camel stepping along, pulling a plow. A camel Is on Interesting animal and carries a dis tinct sense of dignity with him and of course he looks ridiculous pulling a plow! Arriving in Cairo we came to this hotel and had a delicious cold bath. “After this we felt much better and more like seeing something of the city, although we were predisposed not to like Cairo and have been upheld in our presentiment since then. Since we have been here we have seen quite a little of the principal things. The mosques have interested us. especially the one on the Citadel, which is constructed throughout of alabaster and is ver> beautiful on the interior. But the thing which has interested us most is the university. It is many centuries old and the principal thing taught is the Koran, although arithmetic and grammar and those most practical things for making a living are also taught in a small way. The students, of which there are about 4000, come from all parts of Egypt and are of all ages. They are supported by the state, while there and sometimes remain all their lives in the hope of becoming learned men of Egypt, and thereby open to high offices in the state. The pro fessors are paid no salary, but are also supported oy ine suite, wnen we made I our visit we had to ppt on little slip pers (the students must be bare foot) and were conducted around by a guide. | We entered at prayer hour and saw them all at prayer and later at work j memorizing the Koran. All we could see was the general court yards and one of the huge study halls. It was a wonderful sight to see this huge room, crowded with men and boys (women are absolutely forbidden to enter), all hard at work on their study. I saw one lit tle fellow about 12 years old reciting to the master. He rattled it off for an hour or so, never making a mistake, maintaing a steady forward and back ward movement with bis body the whole time. The memory work of these people is astounding and it is small wonder they are such excellent linguists, r saw this very picture long ago in a Sunday school quarterly and it was very impressive. They also have prayers five times a day here, it being the fourth prayer we attended. How different this was from one of our uni versities. “This afternoon we took a ear ride out to the pyramids of Ghiieh and to the Sphinx. 1 have heard of these places and seen pictures of them nil my life and T could hardly realize t was really seeing them. It was a fine afternoon, a little cloudy and therefore fine and cool. The old pyramids were great. Huge, accurately sighted, piles of stone that have stood for some 5000 years. They were immense and were composed of very large blocks. I wasn't a bit disapointed in them. The Sphinx was also fine and made me feel more Ufce T am really in Egypt than any thing I have seen. Its origin is lost in the dawnless morning of time and it looks a little the worse for wear. The temple beside it didn't interest mo very much, as there is hardly anything left of it to see. I felt very much gratified by the visit, however, and am very glad I have seen them.” PERSONNEL OF THE ROBERTSON-LATADY The attendants have been chosen for the marriage of Miss Margaret Robertson and Mr. Francis Hatady, which will he brilliantly celebrated Wednesday evening.
