CENTER OF MANY LEGENDS
Famous Dome of the Rock, in the Holy
Land, Has Long Been Held
The Mussulman's grief at the fall of
Jerusalem is largely centered in the
fate of the Dome of the Rock. For
centuries devout Mohammedans have
journeyed to this spot, which they
count second only to the holy places of
Mecca in religious significance.
Directly under the rounded donje
topped with the Turkish crescent is the
sacred rock about which a host of tra
ditions—Jewish, Christian and Mo
hammedan—have been collected. From
this rock Mohammed ascended into
heaven on his steed El Borak, the light
ning. Here also, if tradition Is worth
anything, rested Noah's ark, and Jacob
saw the angelic vision. This spot is
18 miles,nearer heaven than any oth
er on the earth, and the Turks accept
the old Jewish theory that this is the
center of the earth. Here on the judg
ment day will the angel Gabriel stand
when he sounds his trumpet.
There Is little room for argument
over these statements. You accept or
reject them as you will. But long and
heated hare been the learned disser
tations to decide whether this Identical
spot, already overcrowded with asso
ciations, is the site of Solomon's tem
ple or of the tomb of Christ. Science
now leans toward the former conclu
sion and grants that very likely the
rock marks the place where stood the
altar of the famous Jewish temple.
Even for a confirmed skeptic the
place must hold some interest, for the
structure protecting the rock is a
worthy rival of the Taj Mahal In beau
ty of design. The building is octagon
al like a mosque and popularly called
the Mosque of Omar, to the distress
of the well Informed, who point out
that it is only a shrine and that the
true Mosque of Omar is a small vault
like building in no way connected with
the sacred rock.
Mohammedan worship Is as yet un
disturbed by the viceroy of the Chris
tians, the chief difference being that
the Mohammedan is now the tenant
and the unbeliever the landlord.
0NLY NEEDED TO BE FED
Simple Reason Why Imported Engine
Could Not Be Pereuaded to
Do Ita Duty.
The first locomotive used on the
Champlain & St. Lawrence railroad
came from Europe, accompanied by an
engineer who, for aome unexplained
reason, had it caged and secreted from
public view. The trial trip was made
by moonlight, in the presence of a few
interested persons, and it is not de
scribed as a success. Later, the im
ported engineer made several attempts
to set the Kitten—for such was the
nickname applied to this pioneer loco
motive-—In motion toward St. Johns,
but In vain; the engine proved refrac

stituted for it.
Meanwhile, the railroad officials call
