To ^ day the Palestine Military railway is doing It between midnight and dawn, every day of the week, writes Clair Price In Asia. I stood at my carriage window, entering Pales tine to the metronome-click of 30 miles an hour. Below me, the rails were bedded In golden sand, up the slope of which the green of the adjacent fields lay like surf on a yellow beach. Ludd was a small railroad yard In a vast pool of sand, with Welsh coal cinders specking its yellow expanse. With Its passengers leaning out Its windows calling into, the station crowd "Ya weled," the Officers' Spe cial pulled In on Its way to Haifa shortly after seven o'clock and came to a dignified stop alongside the little "Jerk-water" train for Jerusalem. An Arab weled, wearing a fez and a station porter's brassard, strapped my luggage to his bead, transferred it to the Jerusalem train, demanded a tip of ten piastres (50 cents), accept ed half the amount and was finally routed with the wrathful air of a man who has staked a gold mine and has found It contained only quartz. The Jerusalem train consisted of a London & Southwestern locomotive and three ancient Egyptian State Railways pas senger cars, bearing on their wooden sides the chalked words which desig nated them for "officers," "batmen" and "civilians." Arrival at Jerusalem. ! I finally lost Interest in the fidgety train nnd went to sleep. It was an Arab porter's "Khowajah, khowajah," which brought me bolt upright and awake. He was gathering up my lug gage. The rest of the passengers had • left. I followed him out of the car and Into the crowd of British soldiers In pith helmets and shorts, Egyptian military policemen In fezzes and shorts, Baluchistan soldiers in turbans I and shorts. Zionists in khaki drill, and native porters, who moved about on ! the fenced-off platform. My porter led me Into the cool dusk of the cus toms barrier, on toward the quaran tine barrier and thence around to the area of the station. Jerusalem was j nowhere In sight. I climbed into an j arbuggy. with eyes narrowed to slits against the glare of the limestone sur faces, and was driven away from the station at a gallop to the accompani ■ ment of a furious jangling of bells and the harsh grinding of iron tires on a crushed limestone road. We rounded the low hill and sighted Jerusalem a mile away—a savage ravine ribboned with glaring white roads and crowded on the farther slope by a huge modern German church with a brief length of ancient gray wall retiring modestly beyond it. /)n the very roof of Palestine, over looking the Dead sea. a quarter of a mile below the keels of the craft off Jaffa, the walled city of Jerusalem Hps between the Hinnom and Jehosha phat- ravines, as New York city lies between the North and East rivers. It overflows Into a dusty red-and-whlte modern suburb to the north, as New York overflows Into the Bronx. Haifa 's New Importance. The physical Jerusalem Is small, hut the spiritual Jerusalem is the scene of such a world panorama that, although I went there to stay a day or two. 1 should be there yet, had I not cast a fleeting glimpse at the expense account. With a movement order to Haifa. I finally drove back to the Jerusalem station one evening, and, feeling like Ali Baba returning to a stark world after sis miraculous weeks In the Rohhefs' Cave, boarded the fussy little train that conveys of ficers over the Jernsalem-Î.udd line. Haifa Is like Atlantic City in the wash of its surf. It Is like Florida In the wide, while streets of Its (lerinan colony. It is like Manitou In Its green slopes of Mount Cartnei. It Is like the orient In the narrow, vaulted streets of Vte native qi>*rter. The war b»? made It the keystone of tht£ vast arcb of empire, one column of which rests on South Africa and the other on India. It is the peak of the British Cape-to-Cairo-to-Calcutta project. Leaving Haifa, we skirted the foot of Carmel and issued into the broad plain, with the black skin-tents of Bedouin dotting the flat green dis tances and with 13 of us, all tangled up like the sultan's signature, in a carriage built for eight, talking of the Crusaders and the Camel Corps, and untangling ourselves intermittently to hang out of the windows with our kodaks, as the low cone of the Mount of Transfiguration disengaged Itself from the horizon far ahead. We passed Afuleh, where the greatest cavalry maneuver In military history enabled the Australians to smash the Turkish rear in September, 1918, and we squeezed across the car to see where "Nazareth lies just over that hill." We saw the green plain give way gradual ly to a tumultuous, burnt-up eourttry ; we saw our locomotive rounding sharp curves ahead of us, with "the hedge hogs" running along the footboards of the train In the free-and-easy, ride as-you-please manner of the East. We began winding down into a scarred valley of yellow buttes, a steep blue horizon and a wilting heat, with dyna mited bridge*structures lying shape less under the new bridges we crossed. To the accompaniment of the clicking of many kodaks, we finally sighted the twisting blue of the Jordan. Sigh ing for a watermelon we went down Into the Gehenna of Galilee. Into Damascus In the Night. Night came down over the Hauran ; we lighted a stump of candie In our crowded carriage and dined on bully beef, eggs, apricots and a nip from somebody's flask as a llquer. Some time in the night, the train moved slowly through the moonlit streets of a city of some size, and finally came to a stop under the electric lights of a moaern train-shed. We roused our selves and stepped out upon the con crete platform of the magnificent new Kanavit station in Damascus. With the luggage leading, we creaked out into the moonlight and the chorus of the bull-frogs along the Barada river. We crossed the bridge and the distant thud of the Ramadan gun greeted us. Damascus is purely Arab. It is as thoroughly of the desert as the Arab himself. Once it was greater than Aleppo, greater even than Bagdad ; it was tl^ greatest of the great old cara van ports that lie along the rim of i the Syrian desert. It still faces to ward the desert, and we hat-wearers who come up to it from salt water, come In by Its buck door. We lodge in Its Levantine hotels (when we are able) and we spend our days in cursing its Levantine waiters and our nights to cursing its Levantine wines. For us, Damascus is old and dusty and tumble-down. But to the Arabs who come, through weeks of crossing the desert, to alight at last from their caravans of belled camels before its East Gute, Damasuus offers the mir acle of its rivers of running water. For them, Damascus wears the sacred green turban of its orchards. For them, Damascus Is the City of Para dise. Hard to Interpret.

PUN FIG HT ON M IDDLEMAN Charter for Society Already Drawn In Maryland—Chain of ^Stores Through out the City of Baltimore Is Con templated—Farmers Asked to Aid. Organized labor proposes to go into the business of supplying food prod ucts to Its own members at the lowest possible cost and dividing the profits. If any, among those who buy from the corporation about to be formed for the purpose of dealing in household sup plies. A charter has been drawn by State Senator William J. Norris to enable the carrying out of the plan, which has been formulated by men interested in organized labor, says the Baltimore Sun. The charter drawn by Mr. Norris names as the Incorporators of "The Organized Labor Co-Operative Society, Ltd.," Robert J. Wollmer, Charles H. ( Jacobs, George E. Brown, William G. Green, John F. D. Gothe, Harry B. Watklns and John J. Talianey. All are members of organized labor in its different branches. The capital stock is rfo be $100,000 and the shares are to have a par value of $10 each. No stock is to be sold to anyone not a member of a labor union and no one will be permitted to sub scribe to more than one share. The stock is to pay dividends of not more than 6 per cent a year, and be yond that the shareholders are not to have any part of the profits except as they receive them in the distribution of the profits to the patrons of the plan. It Is the Intention of the, projectors of the scheme to establish a chain of stores throughout the city "to handle fruits and vegetables, as well as dairy * products, and as the business expands purchases In larger and larger quanti ties are to be made. « Further, It Is stated to be the Inten tion of the promoters of the plan to bring about the organization of a co operative society among the farmers from whom purchases are to be made, in order to make a saving In selling and marketing costs. The fight Is to be started against the middleman, as the labor union people think that he Is by his profits adding unnecessarily to the high cost of living. Asks Receiver for Union. Appointment of a receiver for the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and accounting and distribution of the brotherhood's trust fund, estimatéd at $10,000,000, is asked In a suit filed at Columbus, O., by Benjamin Callahan, head of the Columbus Yardmen's asso ciation. The suit was filed by Callahan as an individual policy holder, but In effect Is said to be action on the part of the Chicago Yardmen's association, the In surgent association which precipitated the recent "rump" strike of yardmen. The petition says there are .145,000 members of the outlaw organization and estimates their share of the trust fund at $5.000,000. It asserts that all members of the brotherhood expelled for participation In the alleged unau thorized strike have been deprived of a share In the trust fund which they helped to create. Many Workers Idle. Approximately 150,000 carpenters, plasterers, bricklayers and other em ployees of building contractors are Idle In Chicago, according to a dis patch from the National Financial News Service, The building situation Is very serious, It Is said. The unemployed in all branches of the building trade in that city are spending their time at amusement re sorts and In motion picture houses, the communication states. The efficiency of labor Is noticeable among relatively few men who are engaged In building construction, It being estimated by an expert that bricklayers who three months ago were laying 3,000 bricks dally are now lay ing 1,500. Apprenticeship In Wisconsin. Wisconsin's Industrial commission has as one of its functions the super vision of a system of apprenticeship*. This Is the only state In the Union In which such a system exists, or. in fact. In which apprenticeship receives real attention from the state. Provision Is made for a variety of establishments, and equipment so as to avoid difficul ties due to an unnecessary rigidity. On the satisfactory completion of the ap prenticeship the apprenticej'ecelves a diploma issued by the statÄmder the seal of the Industrial commission and countersigned by the employer. What constitutes a satisfactory completion of the apprenticeship Is determined by the commission. Ford Technical Institute Starts.

There was an expression of melan choly ringed with resentment on Mrs. Brown 's face as she entered the gro cer's shop. "I want," she began Impressively, "to talk to you about them eggs Î had last week. They weren't anything like as fresh as they might have been." "That's strange," replied the grocer, who fancied himself something of a wag. "We always have an almanac hanging up In the fowl run to keep the hens up to date."

An army of cats, turnecTloose In the zoo at Highland park, Pittsburgh, Pa, to clean out the rats, has showu the . fallacy of may tales of ferocity tc^jf of wild denizens of the jungle. " T Rats had become so numerous at the big zoo that it was found necessary to> take some means of ridding the build ing of the pests, and the head keeper decided on cats—just the plain alley breed. An advertisement brought them. In droves, and they were turned loose In the cages, cellars, supply rooms and lofts. No sooner had the cages been Invad ed than pandemonium broke loose. Lions, tigers, panthers, pumas andi leopards failed to recognize a distant relationship, and many of them went clear frantic with fear. Other -ani mals, including*the elephants, were not> so timorous, but hippo and rhino were only a few seconds In making up their minds that discretion was the better » part of valor.
