JERICHO, Nov. 26. Have you heard
of the excavations which the Aus
trian are making away out here
on the edge of the Jordan? They have
discovered, the site of old Jericho, and
are digging up the walls which fell
down at the blast of Joshua's trumpet.
The place is just about 14 miles from
Jerusalem as the crow flies. It lies on
a little rlateau, right under the moun
tains upon which it is said our Lord
was tempted by the devil and prom
ised the world. It is about three miles
from the present town of Jericho,
where I am stopping, and within easy
easy access of it by foot, horse or
carriage. I have spent a day with the
excavators. There are 300 peasant men
and women digging up the ruins, and
the Austrians have laid down a rail
way to carry the dirt outside the walls.
They are using steel cars, pushed by
hand. They are finding all sorts of
relics and are unearthing new histor
The work began about three years
ago under the Austrian ministry min
istry of education, and the uncovering
of the mounds showed the remains of
& great fortress city, which was un
doubtedly the Jericho of Canaan. This
lies on a plateau, surrounded by great
walls, some of which are of stone. It
nad inner walls and a citadel and was
flanked with strong towers. The heart
of the city was about 1200 feet long
and 525 feet wide!
The Houses ef Old Jericho.
Many of the houses have been un
earthed. I have walked through streets
which were in use when Hoses and the
the Israelites were wandering in the
wilderness, and have tramped up and
down staircases of clay which were
built hundreds of years before Christ.
In one of the buildings, which is sup
posed to have been made 2700 years
ago, there was found an uncovered
courtyard. The house seems to have
been abandoned during a fire, and for
some reason or other it was left In a
better condition than most of the oth
ers. It contained, a red sandstone mill
for meat grinding and water vessels of
various shapes. It had plates and jugs
&n& also lamps and iron vessels with
handles of deer horn. 1
In going through the ruinsjl tramp
ed over bushels of pottery broken in
pieces. I stew water jars chipped and
cracked. They had clay corks as big as
a tomato, with a hole through "the cen
ter. There are hundreds of these corks
lying on the ground. There are also
stone mortanf "wbzch were used for
grain grinding, ' and the remains of
amphorae, or huge jars with necks and
side handles, which were 'buried in the
earth and kept to hold wine or grain.
The most of the pottery is covered with
& white glaze, and -some of it has ver
tical stripes of yellow painted upon it.
As to the buildings; the stone walls
are built without angles, the cracKs
being filled in with smaller stones.
The work was done with tools of
bronze, and some of It dates back
beyond history- The heart of the city
Is on an egg-shaped plateau just above
the plain of the Jordan. So far about
?S000 has been expended on the work.
A' Magnificent City.
It is difficult in wandering through
these -uins of mud, brick and rough j
stone to realize that Jericho was a
magnificent city. The ,one of Joshua
was not so in our sense of the word,
although it covered "a large area and
was thickly populated. There are no J
remnants of sreat marble columns, and i
remnants of great marble columns, and
it Is said that that Jericho had disap
peared long1 before Christ came and
that another had taken its place sit
uated In this same Jordan vallej. The
Jericho of Christ had a theater, a cir
cus and a university. It ranked "with
Jerusalem as one of the Important
places in Palestine. It "was surround
ed by irrigated gardens, and "was t
known as the city of palms. It had
grown up in Roman times, and Mark
Antony thought so much of it that he
gave it as a present to Cleopatra who
collected quite a revenue from the bal
sam groves, near there "which furnished
the gum of commerce. Cotton "was rais
ed here at that time, and this region was
then a winter resort for Jerusalem.
Herod the Great had palaces' in ' Jeri
cho, and it is said that he died here,
although he "was buried somewhere

He did not stay in the city, but dwelt
outside in the house of Zaccheus, who
was a collector of taxes for the Roman
government, and therefore not popular
with the Jews. I refer to Zaccheus
the dwarf. He was so short he feared
he -would not be able to see the Christ,
over the heads of the crowd, and, as
you remember from the verse in the

of Christ's time, but the one of Joshua
and Rahab. You remember Rahab. the
j fair lady who was not so good as she
j should be, who lived upon the walls of
Jericho, and who hid Joshua s spies un
der the stalks of flax, which she had
stored up on her roof. She told them of
the terror which prevailed in the city
over the possible Invasion of Joshua,
and made them promise to save her
when Jericho was taken. The spies ar
ranged with her that she should tie
some'red thread to the bars of her win
dows, when her house would be spared.
She then let them down by a cord
through the window and they escaped
and reported to Joshua, Tha,t was a
g5od day's work for Rahab. The prom
ise of the spies was carried out by
the Israelites, and Rahab was not only
preserved, but she married one of the
princes o Judah, a man named Sal
mon, and thereby became one of the
most famous women of the ancestral
tree of the Israelites. She was the
mother of Boaz, -who was the husband
of Ruth, and King David was one of
her great, great grandchildren. On the
next step b" her genealogical ladder we
find king Solomon, and away down the
centuries comes the name of Joseph, the
husband of Mary, and of the family of
Christ. In the first chapter of Mat
thew you will find the generations from
Abraham to the birth of our Savior,
and in them are mentioned the names
of only four -women, namely, Thamar,
Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba, the moth
er of Solomon, who had been the 'wife
At the Fountain of Elisha.
Right under old Jericho where these
people are working is the fountain of
Elisha which the prophet made sweet
by throwing salt into it. It is not far
from the spot where he was mocked by
the children who cried after him: "Go
up, thou old baldhead." "Thereupon,"
says the scriptures, "the prophet turn
ed and cursed, them in the name of the
Lord. And there came forth two she
bears out of the woods and tare forty
and two children of them."
It is said that the place where Elijah
was carried up in a whirlwind to heav
en was not far from Jericho, and on my
way down here from Jerusalem I saw
the cave in which that prophet is said
to have been fed by the ravens. It is in
the Wady Kelt, a great dry rocky can
yon -with walls many feet high. The
cave is a few miles from Jericho, half
way up the side of the gorge, and is
j partly hidden by a monastery which

But let me tell you how I came down
to Jericho. The way from Jerusalem is
throusrh the wilderness of Judea: one
of i the roughest and stoniest lands of
the world. There is but little green to
be seen and the glare is intense. The
dust of the road isv of limestone and
chalk, and it is so thick that it gets
into your eyes, mouth and nostrils. The
road is the chief highway from the Jor
dan to the H0I3" city, and it is traveled
by thousands. The traffic was even
greater in tne time or unrist to tne

I stopped at Bethany to look at Laz-

ed of what Mark Twain said, namely:
'"Thft Je would rather sleep in the

Entering the town, I took a look at

of limestone and entered by steep steps.
It belongs to the Franciscan monks,
who often say mass there.
The house of Mary and Martha, in
which Christ stopped, is said to hav

of brambles and wild cactus. There is
no building left, although the guides
point out a pile of stones which they
say was once a part of the wall.
On the waj- to Bethany I was shown
the site of the fig tree which was I
cursed by the Savior and from then on
never bore fruit. There are many fig
trees about, and orchards of them are
to be found in most parts of the Holy
Land. It was on the road to. Bethany

on top of the rock nd I observed that i
the man added another stone to the pile
and that he kissed the rock as he left. I
asked my guide the secret of his ac

The Good Samaritan Inn.
A little farther on I stopped for a
bottle of ginger pop and a cracker at
the Good Samaritan Inn, which stands
on the traditional site where lay the
man who fell among thieves, when the
Pharisee passed him by on the other
side. It is right on the road about half
way from Jerusalem to Jericho. There
was a crowd in the inn while I waited
and among them a Syrian peasant who
had been robbed by a party of Bedouins.
