WONDERS OF THE HOLY LAND By Mrs. Lelia Walker Wilson President of The Mme. C. J. Walker Manufacturing Co. No matter in which manner ap proach to Palestine is made, one somehow feels that he has begun a sojourn among the most Holy of Holies, and not because of the ab sence of company, for there are many fellow pilgrims on the boats and trains that touch points in the Holy Land. There are merchants and trad ers too, from the four points of the Mute Ewy W®©k Hr® W®dk = » “ Some people save spasmodically, they save for a time and then fall back into careless habits.

Their lack of apprecia tion of the unequalled wonders of their native land is common, just as America’s wonders are often passed unnoticed by us. Upon arriving, one is impressed with the politeness of the customs’ officials whose virtues, by the way, do not include immunity from graft ing and petty thievery. A coin placed into the examining officer’s hands is I known to be the trick that facilitates an easy and hasty entrance to the ' Land Where Christ Lived. Once in, you are known to all who chance to see you as a person of untold wealth. Foreigners, in spite of the thousands who visit there annually, are novel ties and the natives seek to obtain a souvenir from every one they see. Jerusalem, the first point of inter est 1 visited in Palestine, and the largest and most important city, is s tunted on four hills, 2,500 feet above the Mediterranean Sea and surround ed on three sides by ravines, the fourth side joining one of the hills with the main range of mountains of of the country. It is truly the Golden City, as may be seen by the countless golden domes, spires and minarets of a thousand and more churches, mos ques and synagogues glittering and dazzling in the sunlight and the hous es of white stone and rough marble silhouetted against the azure sky rep resenting the residences and business shops of 70,000 Moslems, Jews and \ Christians. Scores of ill paved, crook . ed, narrow streets mark the paths through the city and lend their bit to the enchantment of the Holy Land. Antedating the birth of Christ, Pal estine has been a hotbed of religious wars, massacres and destruction, and much that is which allures and draws one there can be said to have resulted from these wars. I n more peaceful times progress would have crept in and doubtless wiped out the history that remains. Strange enough to say, Moham j medanism is the principal religion of 1 Palestine and its hold on the majori i ty of the people is remarkable, antt | even stranger to say, thoir principal i church, the Mosque Omar erected A. D. 691, is the most beautiful structure I of its kind in the world. In Jersusalem there is to be seen the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which it is said covers the spot where Jesus Christ’s body was anoint ed by Nicodemus and which contains the Rock Calvary, a stone with two foot prints said to be those of Christ, - and the stone that was rolled away THE PHOENIX TRIBUNE—ALWAYS IMPROVING from the mouth of the sepulchre by j 1 an angel. Then there is the Russian j i Excavation Church, which encloses, i the original gates of Jerusalem, the ] Garden of Gethsemane, the tomb of Mary and the Chapel of the Ascen sion on the Mount of Olives, contain ing a rock marked by tradition as the' exact spot where Christ ascended in to Heaven; there is the tomb of Dav id on Mount Zion and the Chamber of the Lord’s Last Supper; the Jew’s Wailing Place, which is against the Wall of Solomon and is where the Jews go daily to cry and pray for the) revelation of the burial place of the Ten Commandments. The City of Bethlehem, the home of David and the birthplace of Christ, is interesting for its Church of the Na tivity, erected over the birthplace of Christ and containing the resting place of the Manger. Here also is located the Chapel of Innocence. Bethlehem represents the beginning of the history of Christ and offers splendid opportunity for first hand comparison of much relating to His early life. There is Jericho, the Promised Land of Elijahs’ Fountain beside the school of the Sons of the Prophets and Bethany, which is now an entire ly Moslem City, with the spot where stood the house of Simon, the leper, and where Lazarus was resurrected by Christ; and then, the dead Sea and the River of Jordan with muddy, tur bulent. waters and which rises in Mount Hermon. These are by no means all the wonders of the Holy I Land. There are as many more, of lesser importance, but interesting and 1 related very directly to the more ; famous biblically-historical places. Palestine is wonderful, and though , the least of all the lands, it is with influence that penetrates into the i furthermost corner of the earth. It is not a beautiful land, but picturesqe t and possessing all the requisites that . go to make beauty—hills and valleys, 3 sloping plateaus and rugged shore > lines, barren deserts and verdant meadows. To go there and see the r wonders of the past is to receive an unequalled education, to be a master of the biblical history and to gain a more clear and comprehensive knowl edge of the Christ that was and the Christianity that is. A trip to the Holy Land and full realization of much the Bible speaks of should be aspired to by every one and most cer tainly by the large number of church men whose chosen field is service and the perpetuation of the teachings of Christ. And such a trip is not im possible. It is within your reach. A trip to Palestine, the wonderful Holy Land, free of all cost, is yours if you determine to earn it. Buy and read race papers April first and learn how to make this unequal ed trip free of all cost.
