Out of I.R.H't l« •IrruHnlrm. It is at Kantara tlmt the chaugc be gins slowly to dawn. Egypt, tin* laml! of Mesh-pots, set like an emerald in t tire golden desert, seems left an in j finite distance l*ehind by the crossing l of the narrow Sue* Canal. At the! : squalid (’usiotus 1 louse of Kantara the first sign of Judaism emerges in the slim figures of a few Palestin j ian Jews returning to Jerusalem. They j stand grouped together, a patch of i i dark colour in their narrow black | coats, their 1-road hats shading finely ent features in pale faces, softened a little by the two silky brown curls that i hang on either cheek. A pair of blue ! eyes raised, unseeing and absorbed, ! have the inscrutable depths of mystic. ! ism and faith. Faith —that is the key i note of the Jewish spirit, which finds [expression in tlx- breaking of stones ! on the roads of Galilee, and drives] i men to a leadership of an almost des-j I iterate cause. Vet their hope does n«t ! seem unfounded when the express j from Kantara slips out of the Kl- Arish desert into the fertile coast laud. The land is cultivated sparsely enough. 1 It is Arab cultivation, and the Arab is io be seen here and there ploughing j with a donkey or ox or camel and bis primitive wooden plough. His method ! scarcely turns the soil, but he seems to get good results from his crops, tho, of course, he supplies only minimum : needs. It is difficult ns yet to come I ! to a definite conclusion us to the ro ] iative values of his method and that deeper ploughing introduced from the West by the Jews. Hut the superior ity of the 'Jewish cultivation is made clear when the first colony. Rehobot. is passed. It is an independent growth created by the immigrants* own efforts, and stands like an oasis in the desert. Here are whitewashed farmhouses, with red-tiled roofs, nestling in the midst of eucalyptus groves, .vineyards, almond groves, orchards golden with oranges, high hedges of mimosa, low partitions of cactus—a true Garden of Eden- and they have learnt here to tie down the ever-advancing sand dunes. There are miles of land en croached upon and buried by the sand, which >vouM he fertile If they could Ik* reclnJitMtl.

Roth the Plains of Saroitu and Aialou tire ; under Anil* eultivnllon. and the 1 ground belongs to big Aral* lnndowii . ers. In January the earth is fresh with young green crops, and the un cultivated hillocks riotous with scarlet j anemone-, lieeween the plains, on rising ground, is perched an Aral* vil. luge, the mud lint* huddled close to ' gel her with the usual “climbing" ef i feet. A small iuii kept by Jews marks the entrance to tho gorge which runs up in to tlie Judaean bills. P.ahel Wad the Gates of the Valley. The road he. i conies then n steep asivnt between pur. pie hills, the lower slopes silver with olive tree-, ami here and there nil Aral* shepherd pastures a th*ck of , black gouts. A great country for brig ands, those sheer wild hills and vul j leys, where at night the jackal slinks along the road, his eyes gleaming in , the sharp-cut moonlight, and iiu oc i casioual eatuel caravan, or single cam el traveller,, creeps forward, now sll ; hoiicitcd against the sky, now lost in tlie turn of some valley, j On the topmost ridges the Philistine i plains can l*c seen, stretching like a vast swelling lake, and beyond them j i- the flashing rim of the sea. (in this coast road to Jerusalem there are a couple of small Jewish col onies. living at: close quarters with the Aral* villages. One of tin* newest. I>ilb, is a real pioneer settlement. Its workers, for the most part from Uus. sia mid the Ukraine, are of all sorts ! and classes—students, doctors, peas ants. They have built wooden huts, in 1 which they live. The women, both ' here and working on the roads, seem in bettor health than the men. broad. I shouldered, stout and strong. Some of the ho.vs look pale and thin, some of 1 the men wear glasses, and pinched features -till hear obvious marks of I scholarship. The hufs ate divided in to sleeping cells, small, clean, furnish, ed with hare necessities. A common ( dining-room and kitchen, worked h.v the women in regular shifts, completes tin? settlement. Those new bibonrciirs de terre and stone-breakers form an interesting experiment. They come in from the fields at noonday, carrying picks.-shovels and spades, brown with the sun. shining with sweat, laughing and singing, nud if you care to glance on the shelves or tables near their beds you will discover hookt* of phil- j osophy. metaphysics, classics.

There must needs l»e n tremor of ev. eitemenc in climbing the last piece i of road which discovers Jerusalem) embedded among the hills. The right ; of tin* road Is walled by high rocks:* on the left, a steep valley runs down to the river-lied to disclose more rounded hills stretching beyond. A first glimpse of the city is not impressive. Outside the heart of the town, which is enclosed within tin* old walls, the cosmopolitan architecture is unattractive. i'nwieldy Teutonic buildings that arc Government of fices. and hospitals built by the Ital ians and the >French. arc overlooked by the Mount of olives. The long streets are bordered with incotirtplcu <-us houses. the usual small shops and cafes. The roads are. not good, and often foully muddy. To appreciate Jerusalem it is liest to mount, tin* hill behind it. and look down flu* road that runs tip to Government House, stundiug almost on the site of the fut uvo Hebrew University. Seen thence, the lines of tile city against a sunset sky. fading into a purple night hung with stars, have power to east ri magic spell. Ugliness and in congruity melt Into the last, glimpse of the Mosque of Dinar and the curv. ed line of Herod’s ancient wall. From ihe point of view of the new Palestine —that is, of the Palestine growing under the Jewish immigrants- Je rusalem is the least alivo of the cities. Here the Palestinian Jew is to bo seen walking the streets on a Sabbath In his close fur cap and decorative Haw ing robes, or praying at the Walling Wall. This costume adds not a little* • to the pieturesqueness of tin* streets of Jerusalem, hut it is a national dress iliat lias adapted itself to the climate and conditions of Poland anti Russia, and has been brought from tin* Jew ish communities, in those countries. It is therefore not well suited fo the climate of Palestine, and is not worn by the young generation of Ilaltii/Jm (immigrants-pioneers). who are doing the spade-work for the Jewish national home. There arises, in these cir cumstances. among the smaller details put In loro the Zionist organisation. the question of a general national costume. As it is not in Jerusalem tlmt the external signs of the growing Jewish community must he sought, so perhaps in Jerusalem the division between Jews and Arabs is less sharply de- 1 lined than elsewhere. To- one who 1 walks thru tin- Imznzar in David St reef, i in* sellers in the li-iotll** seem, at lir.st, to he wit lout exception Arabs, hut a second glai.c* reveals » large pereelitage of Hebrews. s»|Ua‘- ting next the Arab**. ;»• ;»1 :ilmo<« in ! distinguishable from ila-iii. These are .lews that have dribbled into I*uler.-ine,; i not men come in upon the erest 'of a [ spirited immigration. They are in j habitants of some generations stand-; ing. and like the Yemenite Jew have to a eertain degr«*e Iwcome j-sslmilatoil. • Is this to he the general fuse of Jews j emigrating to Palestine? It seems nn- J likely, for even in tin* older colonies the si*eo»d and third generalions are; I linelv grown, intelligent and spirited young people, almost a different .race from the ghetto grandparent* living in tile same house. If the active growth and fruits of Judaism are not to lie found in Je rusalem, it is there at least that all the machinery for promoting the j growth is centered. The Zionist (bun mission arranges for immigration and the reeeption of immigrants, direels the growth of the schools and hos pitals. makes experiments in agricul ture and afforestation, anil controls; public works of various kinds. Under these auspices is a School of Arts and j ('rafts in the city t where young I It*- J brews, who made to themselves no images, can he found busily employed in sculpture and painting, silver worx and filigree, executed with consider-; able skill. A nil fl here, again, are the, buildings of the Agricultural Kesearch and Exposition Department, an insti tution of great value, whieh seeks io discover the fruits, vegetables, flowers and trees most suitable to tho climate, l oth those indigenous and those which can he imported and grown sui-cess fully. Meanwhile a museum, lucidly arranged for the use of students, lias l*oon formed to exhibit results. A young farmer is thus given an oppor tunity to realize the extensive pos sibilities of his work. Jo investigutc, lor example, fourteen varieties of. figs, thirty-live kinds of grapes, of v.hieli some are imported from Spain i and Italy, honey from orange-blossom} ami wild thyme, pouches and apricots, both indigenous to the Country and. among other fruits, oranges. mnii.- liarins, pomegranates, lemons and almonds. In this sphere alone lies a great source of wealth if cultivation is ex lensively enough carried out and liar hours with transport facilities offer an outlet. But the museum Is not re stricted to examples of fruits and cereals: it displays flowers and trees., and prouder au irlmocd complete ca-' i liiliicion of tlio native birds ami fauna. Hi lo tlio growing youth of Palestine may be taught to make their land flow once more with milk and honey. The aeadculic spirit of the museum | ts gathered up in the ideal of a great 1 Hebrew University of Jerusalem, still, jierliaps, a ca.srli* in the air; hue tin* chosen site on the hill above the city i> already procured and a rough out line of a researeli scheme already set on paper. The materialization of tills project is a matter of time and money. It raises once more the ever receiirreni problem in a country where everything ; is still to do—the problem of what must be done today und what may. with infinite* regret, lie postponed until tomorrow. The power of such an iu srit.utiou as the University to embody and keep alive the present ideals ami spirit of new Palestine is unquestion able. it would bo of immense value. Vet agricultural labourers are more hi request than students. Peliups an approach is. of necessity, being made to a partial dei ntcllect ua li sat ion of the Jew. At present the would-be students of such u University are breaking stones for road-making ami lire cultivating the laud of the col onies.
