Five Thousand Years Old In the Footsteps of Elisha and Rahab, King David's Great-Great-Grandmother Where the Bears Ate the Babies and Elijah Was Fed by the Ravens Across the Wilderness of judea A Rock Which Cures Lumbago At the Good Samaritan Inn How the Mount of Olives and Geth semane Look in 1910. I t.cropyr'i&ht. 1910, by 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 ical facts. 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 near Hebron. Jericho, and here He healed the blind 1 we Know that our Savior came to 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 old primer: "Zaccheus he Did climb a tree, , His Lord to see."

Frank G. Carpenter.) 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 of Uriah. 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 tne ijreeKs nave Duiit at tnat place. In the "Wilderness of Jmlea. 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.

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 been In an inclosure which is now full 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 that Christ mounted the colt which car ried him on his triumphant march to Jerusalem. A Rock "Wkich Cures Lumbago. Shortlj' after I left Bethany I saw a curious sight by the roadside. This was j a man leaning backward over a great gray bowlder, and rubbjng himself vio lently upon it. There were some stones 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 tions. He replied: "That stone is call ed the father of rocks, and it is said to be a sure cure for. lumbago and back ache.

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. The man was covered with wounds, and was crying and sobbing as he told how he had been attacked, and the money ,x-i,?oi, . Vmrt int rpo.ftived from the sale of some sheep stolen from him. as we pass.
