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.”
