One thing I observed in regarde to the pyramids and that is youa are deceived about the distance you are away from them and they look to be sharp on top buty grow on you as you approach them Cheops the largest one covers an area of 18 acres and is ow 460 feet high and 80 feet square on top and tapers in regu ar order from the bottom While ion top of this pyramid you are in height of a wonderful history of Bible in antiquityaud some unutterable impressions steal over one as the views from this summit of an greatness and power Then sweeps thQ broad majestic Nile that the ancients worshiped as a God and why not Did it not year by year spread its fructifying arms and fill her valleys with abundance their garners becom the source of supply for the world As one stands entranced visions of ages pass before the minds kingdoms flourish and pass away cities flourish and decay obelisks temples towns sand tombs alike crumble into dust mighty kings rulers and great whose praises and fame have sounded with loudest blasts butSl the echoes have died away anda they are forgotten In sight is old Memphis the city of the Pha roes old Cairo and Heliopolis the city of the Sun called On in the Book of Gen 4145 All these can be seen from this sum miteAs we dwell upon this vision of the ages a baud of Ishmaelites a onic in sight with their long train of camels bearing the produce products of other laude They bring a lad along with them an Issealite Time rolls on and the young Isrealite becomes the firstr ruler of the land and is known as is an interpreter of dreams It comes into his knowledge the approach of a famm and cribs are built and is stored away Then there some men down ten in allV Caanau to buy corn They are received by Joseph and he himself known to them very soon Jacob is made glad andmeets the king and the laud of Goshen is settled up and things go well for a while They are made slaves persecution follows and years of hardship A child is found in the rushes He is reared up in the providence of God for a leader Isreal marches out with a high land Pharo essaying to fol low is drowned him and his ar my in the Red Sea The scenes of this history are largely in sIghtE from this summitEAfter we left the pyramids we visited the Sphinx which is only a short distance away Only a portion of it is exposed but it isc immense It has the face ofa man and the body of a lion It was originally 66 feet high face is 18 ft 8 inches wide 128 feetI long mouth 7 feet Wo then went on donkeys to the pyramids of Sakara but as they are all so much alike when you have seen one you have seen all Some sev en or eight are seensome In ru ins We then viewed the cata combs of Sakara three in all The first is Tih which is very in teresting contains hieroglyphics all over the walls and some mum mies have been taken out and pui in museums at Cairo The second one is called The Tombs of the Sacred Bulls There are twenty four tombs or sarcophagus in cave like opening and they are cut out puat a e caskets are still here but the bulls arbg o n eperhaps resurrected These people thought more of their bulls than we do of Presidents The third one wo visited was dis covered in 1893 and from it have been taken some interesting mum mies Leaving the catacombs we PUB ed through old Memphis but lit platue once statue of Barneses the First and d Second are both there but will soon be removed to some of the museumsWe back to the R R station about sun down the same day and were glad to give up our donkeys for we had ridden some 25l on saddles not suited to Americans The horn is the long at part of the saddle They keep fellow spread out too much in his hips I have not fully recovered from the soreness produced Of course climbing the pyramids a helped some None of us have been anxious for a donkey ride since The next day April 4th we visited the Museum of Gizeh which west of Cairo proper It is per aps one of the most interesting the world as well as the most extensive We saw mummies un il we tired out of seeing One of the moat remarkable things I noticed was the well preserved cask ets of wood that had been taken from the catacombs They look freshand most of the lately discovered ones have the photo of the corpse painted on the lid of the caskettWe visited the Island of Rhoda and the old Coptic church the same day and the place where Moses was found in the little ark The next day we left Cairo for Suez and the Red Sea We took boat that day and visited the springs of Moses the first watert place after he crossed the Red Seaa There are about seven of them very large others more like well The water is salty and not suitable to drink The next day we spent on the other side of sea where they come through the is mountain into the valley WeR went about 20 miles down and found a place suitable and satisfactorily returning at G oclock in fine gale and enjoying one ofO the most delightful rides of my lifeIThe next day we came to Port Said by rail along the Suez canal This canal connects the Meditert Sea with the Red an about 90 miles in length This canal is of great importance to the a mercantile world From London to Bombey it saves a distance of over 5000 miles Over 4000 pass through annually The income from it is over 4000 000 annually From Port Said we took an Egyptian steamer Sunday night at 7 oclock for Joppa and arrived there about 10 a m next day to find Joppa a bad landing The sea was very rough and we waited until 8 p m before the little boat ventured out and then it was dangerous but we got out all safe But the boatmen and tough fellows t They agreed to bring us a shore for 2 franks each and before we landed they wanted ten each and demanded the mon eybutwe did not bluff and push oh and got off with 2I franks- or 5c each Joppa is a hard place Here we saw Simon the tanners house where Peter had his vision the housetop Also the house where Dorcus was raised from the deadAt this place there are some fine orange groves We came to Jeruselem the next day Tuesday April 10 just one month from the time we started from New York We are keeping very well and cheerful to be BO far from home We are now over 7000 miles from old

issues and that it will overwhelming y supported by the vote cast for the Republican ticket in November This popular support of the Republican ticket js somewhat doubtful It Senator Hannahs party takes that bold stand on certain issues which would be consistent with its acts Such stand would necessitate the Republican partys pronouncement against the American Constitution violated by the Republican passage of the Por to Rican tariff bill It would force the adoption of a resolution openly promising protection to the trusts assessed- to a total of 830000000 for Republican campaign uses It would compel the repudiation of the Declaration of In dependence declared by the Republican party as inapplicable to the situation in the Phillippines It would make inevitable a public announcement of the definite abandonment of the Monroe Doctrine It would lead to a confession of the Republican determination to annex Cuba in viola ion of our pledge for Cuban national independenceSenator is mistaken in believ ing that the American people would support such a platform He is mista ken in asserting that his party will take a bold stand on these issuesa stand in keeping with its real inten ions What it will do will be tododge these issues and try to fool the people into reelecting Mr McKinley Then will come the line of action Indicated abovea mappedout course which the Republican party

The Supreme Court decided last Monday that it had no jurisdiction in the Kentucky political muddle thus ending the long con troversity over the Governorship of our State There has not been a day nor an hour that we had a doubt as to the result of the de cision The contest was purely a local affair and did not affect the national interest We are glad the contestees have the satisfact- IOn of knowing that they have been heard from the Circuit Court in Kentucky to the highest Cour- in the land and that they shout now be willing to lay aside their claims since every court has de cided against them The battle fought the victory won and Mr Beckhain is now the undisputed Governor of Kentucky The decision of this Court renders it nec essary to have a Gubernatorial race this fall and wo presume that the Executive Committee that meets tomorrow in Frank fort will issue a call for a State Convention for the pur pose of nominating a Democratic candidate for Governor The sun shines bright in my t old Kentucky home The sympathy racket was large ly in front at Republican State Convention Tomorrow at Bardstown th Democrats of the Fourth distric- will renominate Hon Dave Smit for Congress He is a splendid Representative and is sure of re election J Frank Hutchison editor o the Guthrie Graphic was shot and seriously wounded last Wednesday night by H S Devoid a jeweler The shooting was the result of publication in Mr Hutchisons paper Gen Joseph H Lewis who ha been favorably mentioned as the Democratic candidate for Gover nor states through the press tha he has retired from politics and can not possibly become a candi date Hon Oscar Turner has publish ed a card stating that he will not be a candidate for reelection to Congress from the Louisville dis trict He gives as his reason fo his action that he can not neglect his private business It would now be in order for th Republican contestees to appeal to England but as Her Majesty ownr 1 the aid of the great trusts tha have

charge against the Havana postmaster E P Thompson who with W H Reeves Deputy Auditor of tho Island and Edward Moya and Geo Mascaro Cuban clerks in the stamp department was arrested last week will be that ho entered into a conspiracy with Corydon Rich the clerk who has confessed to a knowledge of many of the transactions and who will give evi deuce for the government showing an effort to shield CF W Neely the arrested financial agent of posts The prosecution says Thompson deliberately received vouchers and ordered that the changes be made in the books and accounts with the manifest inten tion of shielding Neely Mr Thompson had been postmaster at Indianapolis fur twenty years and was regarded as an honest man His downfall is regretted b y his many friends at his old home The Republicans of
