letter from this place I had finished up the tour to Jerusalem We spent six days inaud around Jerusalem The next day after our arrival here on the 10th we secured car riages for a two days trip to Jeri cho Jordan and the Dead Sea We arrived at Jericho about noon We were surprised to see the good road all the way This road has only been built in the last three years Itwas built in honor of William Emperor of Germany who visited the country three or four years agoVe passed near where the man fell among thieves and they showed us the ruins of the inn where lie was taken cure of We viewed the nuns of Old Jericho but were disappointed seeing so little We could uot fesw by It is a fine spring and affords an alfundant supply jf water We then had lunch at the new Jericho Hotel afterwhich we drove to the Dead Sea a distance of ten miles Some of the party took a bath in the sea and enjoyed it very much but found afterward that it left more sofa sticky stuff than it took off On the west side of the sea we were shown the ruins of the prison where John the Baptist was beheaded We then drove back to the Jordan and expected to have a swim in it but it was so flush and muddy that we declined to try it We could see old Nob o from the Jordan valley where Moses viewed the promised laud but was net permitted to enter it I was greatly disappointed in see ing the Jordan valley so barren and desolate It must have uu dergone a great change since Moses saw it for there is nothing there inviting now Scarcely a wheat patchno fruit trees or vineyards of any kind nor magnolias After spending the night in Je richo which is a very small vilIlage now and is nearer the Dead Sea than old Jericho we made our way back to Jerusalem stop ping long enough on the way to see the brook Cherith where Eli jah was fed by the ravens There is a monastery built now on th the place where Elijah was fed We stopped in at Bethany to see the tomb of Lazarus and the home of Mary and Martha and arrived in Jerusalem at 11 oclock After lunch we took a stroll inside the walls with our dragoman in the lead Our hotel De Howard is one of the finest in the orient and is outside the city We entered the Joppa gate The tower of David is the first thing that greets us as we enter the walls Next the tomb of David Judg meat Hall of Pilate Pool of Beth saida The next day which was goodE Friday we secured donkeys and in the morning early we startedI on a tour to the important places outside the city The tombs of the Kings wbic is very t ancient contains sepul chres for thirty or forty bodies We then visited the holy sepul chre of modern discovery on thej outside of the wells a suitable place in every respect for Script al description A hill is near by yratproteatants believe this is the place of Christs burial Gethsemane was the next placei viewed and as we entered the gar den where Jesus spent the latter part of the night before his trial and crucifixion I could hardly re alize that I was really in that sac red place It has an outer wall allaround it some ten feet high pand then a space inside of six or eight feet and a nice iron fence encloses the inner garden We walked around it and stopped to see the different pictures repre senting the different scenes in the trial and crucifixion They are fine lifelike pictures and made one feel that he was almost in touch of the real scenes In tlie garden there is one very old looking olive tree and many b uti- ful evergreen trees and many vat reties rthrabbetti ry It is 1 e I e J Kc tc y f Olivet and is well identified as the original garden We rode up the hill to the top of the of Olives and went up the tower from which we had a fine view of all the surrounding country The valley of the Jordan and the Dead Sea are in plain view After stroll ing around the mountain stopping at the place where Jesus taught His diciples to pray we observed a large church and on the walls there are thirtytwo copies of the Lords prayer and in thirtytwo tongues We were surprised to see this but gratified to know that the famous prayer was printed in so many tongues We were shown the traditional place of the ascen sion and where the foot of Jesus left its print in tne rock Of course we believed it There is superstition here about some things and places that is dis gusting to one who knows better We then rode down the mountain and down the valley of Kedron passsing the Virgins Pool and the Poolo Siloam and up the valley of H passing lower Gihon encircling the entire walls a distance of at least three miles TheI wall is 2I metes in circumference In the ofternoon we went through the city from New Gate to St Stevens Gate on the side of the Mount of Olives to witness the Mohammedan procession They were having some kind of a feast to compete with the Catholic Easter etc They marched out 10 where they have Moses tomb as they say which is six or eight miles out on the Jericho road The feast prevented us from see ing the Temple ground the Mosque of Omer or Dome of the Rock as they will not permit Christians to see these things during their feast which lasts a week or more Wo had to view these places from the tops of houses We could get close enough in this way to see the outlines very well but not like being on them 1 The next day we drove down t Hebron a distance of 18 miles there we met with the same trouble in regard to the Cave o Macpelah The Mohammedans have it in their possession and n Christians see it We took our lunch under the shade near Abrdt hams Oak This is a beautiful undeiPgood improvement anda niceI iron fence encloses this famous old oak There are now only two living branches on the tree and it looks to be 8000 years old or more It bears a great many acorns as there are always plenty to sell to travelerstWe saw the pools of Soloman some 7 or 8 miles from Jerusalem on the Hebron road There three in number and they made for supplying water to Jeru salem There is an leading by Bethlehem to JerusaI tom We called at Bethlehem to the birth place of Jesus Thar- ais large church over the you descend into a cave of a place to see it This is at least near the where Jesus tehstitiou of these people I will speak of a little place our dragoman showed us He said once whenI Mary was nursing Jeaus a milk fell on the floor and the have the spot identified and all women who do not have sufficient supply of milk for nursing their children go to that place and theitlast milk is increased Hundreds t and believe they have increa c milk We took a look at the ail where the Shepherds were ing their flocks when the slige announced the birth of Jesus thenI drove book to Jerusalem The next day was Easter Sun day and w6 all spent the forenoon in our rooms In the afternoon we went out to Calvary and the to Gethsemane and there he our services We sang three or four songs read appropriate Scrip ture and had prayer by Bro K ser went on Ht Olivet again at viewed the city from this place once more had a fine view of the Temple grounds auk the domo ofand the rock and after contemplating the history of that place we went book to hotel ready depart 6n thVmbtfbV wVhaa atrlij i for a good camping outfit for days from Jerusalem to Dama- t cus on to Beyrout Our next wi be from Jerusalem to Damascus We leave Palestine on May 6th for Constantinople I will close this letter with some reflections about Jerusalem It is a Ovalle city or at least the ancient par of the town is These walls were built about 800 years ago The present walls do not include so much as the old one did The present wall is about 80 feet high Has one new gate and all the an dent gates are retained The golden gate is closed and has been fo many years The streets are fro 6 to 10 feet wide and so filthy in places that you are glad when you get out There are arches over the streets in many places so the sunshine never gets in and the business is done with very paor light They have no electric lights no street cars nor can they ever have for the narrowness of improveinside ings are torn down and rearrang ed But the outside is more modern and is building up rapidly There are some very nice buildings on the outside that are modern Some of the best and finest hotels are on the outside The people are divided into about five classes religiously Jew Armenian Greek Roman Catholics Coptics They all have their separate ters and in the Church of the Hoa ly Sepulchre they have their different quarters and are jealous of each other The Mohammedans who are in the majority dominate Ulookingwill always be kept that way for that is the best way to keep people who are fedon We are all quite superstitionI having many hew The ancients believed that rheuma ism was the work of a demon wlthl aotack of sciatic

o t to compromise our principles it is not a question of principle that divides our party but merely one of policy All Democrats stand for the same principles adhere t the same immutable demands and

Democrats that he should nut be a man who busied in any of tho factional fights There need not be any trouble to secure such a man but if political combinations are formed to force tho nomination any

Indiana becomes a place of refuge for Republican criminals His acts are inopen violation of our constitution re pulsive to morals and degrading the fair name of Indiana If the law abiding citizens of his theat the polls next November by dumping the Republican party of that State into a ditch it will be conclusive evidence that they in orse assassination Gov Mount assumes to know that Finley is innocent of the charge as set forth in the indictment j he assumes that the indictment was procured by a partisan jury but he fails to say any thing concerning thosewho testified as to Finleys connection with the crime All the witnesses who testified in the case were Re publicans whose veracity is un questioned Mounts explanation is too thin to even attempt to jus tify his cause The truth is as we believe he is merely protecting Finley because he is of the same political faith that ho does not dant any of the murderers to face justice Such men as Mount ought never to hold tho reins of

discourse- at the Presbyterian church in this city last Wednesday evening Mr McDon ald IB a very scholarly gentleman but in preaching his points are presented In language that little children can understan 1 making his sermons the valuable At the entertainment last Friday evening we occupied a seat on the back We were there to listen To our right there were several people who do not live in

Thursday the citizens of Russell county were shocked upon learning of the ucatb of Judge John Crisp which occuTrea alt hfs iate residence in Jamestown For several weeks the deceased had been in feeble health and when his condition became criti cal every body hoped for the best be lieving that a life which had been spent in usefulness would be spared But the Death Angel came and the spirit of an honorable and popular nan took its flight The deceased was Pres- Ident of the Bank at Jamestown had been County Judge and had filled oth er positions of trust He was about 60 years old and leaves a considerable estate accumulated by Industry and prudence The deceased leaves a wife and several children who are almost heart broken His surviving friends are numerous and realize that Russell county has sustained an Irreparable- loss Married Last Thursday evening at the rest deuce of Mr Henry N Smythe who lives in the suburbs of Columbia Mr J J Biggs and Miss Mary T Smythe were uuited in marriage The cere mony which was very solemn and im pressive was rendered by Rev E W Barnett pastor of the bride Only the family and a few Intimate friends were present While the date of this marriage was kept very quiet the an nouncement of its solemnization was not in the nature of a surprise as the couple have been lovers for a number of years The groom is one of Adair countys best citizens and at present is engaged in the revenue service The bride is a very estimable young woman and for quite a while has been a popular teacher In the county We understand the couple will reside upon the grooms farm near Cane Valley We trust that the remainder of their lives may be spent in unbroken happiness IDr McDonald of the Presbyterian church was in Columbia last week In the interest of the M F High School at this place Dr McDonald together with others of this church who are interested in educational work will return to Columbia in a few days and will submit a proposition to the people of this section in regard to en dowing the school here to such an extent as will place it on a sure and safe foundation and guarantee us one of the best schools in Southern Kentucky Those who are acquainted with Dr McDonalds intentions are of the opin- Ion that he will not ask more than 83500 as a contribution trom this sec tion and that this amount will be spent in enlarging the grounds and improving the college buildings It Is to be hoped that the people of this town aid community will not lightly consider the proposition that will soon be presented by our Presbyterian brethren We need the school and the small amount of money that will be required at our hands is but a trifle compared to the real worth of the school Due notice of the meeting will be given In the News Mr J S Royse will attempt to In duce a numder of the best farmers in this section to unite in buying clover huller The machine will only cost about 400 or probably it can be bought for 300 Mr Royse proproses that thirty or forty of our best farmers make up the amount by each putting in 810 This seems to us a practical move a move in the right direction and one that would result in much good to the stockholdrs and the coun try in general With a good huller in this section hundreds of dollars would be kept at home which are sent out every spring for clover and millet seed It would stimulate the interest in growing clover etc and in a short while our farmers would be sellers rather than buyers We trust that the best farmers will see the impor tance of such an action and assist Mr Royse in making it a go Mr James Page kept 7 stacks of clover for a num ber of years waiting for a huller but by and by the clover rotted and later on the stock poles went to dust and no huller ever came he favors a huller Our readers will remember that during the month of January in this year the News published a story entitled A Kentucky Romance It was founded upon the birth of a child In Adir county which occurred many years ago For the bulk of the story the writer drew upon his Imagination Last Saturday afternoon the original Walter Sharp one of the characters named in the story called at thlsof fice He states that
