Her head was "well formed; her hair, jet black and of unusual lustre and abundance, was parted In the middle and held In coil at the nape of an ii neck the beauty of which was revealed by the low cut of her simple frock.

Last-Sprin- g. According to a Liverpool correspondent of the Times the discovery of a very early Christian church In the Garden of Gethsemane has directed attention to the valuable work which Is being carried out In Palestine under the direction of the newly formed department of antiques. Sir Herbert" Samuel recognized from the. outset of his career as high commissioner that the whole world was anxious that all possible care should be taken of the monuments, and every facility afforded for investigating the history of the Holy Land. "He called to his aid the director of the British School of Archeology In Jerusalem, who Is now home once more after strenuous work which he ias had the gratification of seeing bear fruity Excavations In the Garden of Gethsemane were begun by the Franciscans in the spring of last year, and they dlsr covered a church of the thirteenth century. In digging the foundations for a. new building on the spot they discovered traces of a much earlier church on a slightly different axis. They duly received permission to excavate this earlier building, which proved to be a church of about the fourth century, and one of the oldest monuments to Christianity In Palestine. The whole of the outside wall can" be traced, together with the two rows of columns which supported the aisles, and three apses, the central one being the largest Here- - and there are well preserved, though small, remains of the original mosaic floor. The Franciscans have undertaken to preserve these remains In suchli way that they will be permanently visible ; even though a n6w church be built, It will be designed to "inclose the old church, and steps will be taken to distinguish the outline of the ancient structure and to preserve the pavement and Ihe bases of columns Jn a way that Is quite satisfactory. The central apse of this building reaches out Just beyond the modern limits of the garden toward theTocks which areusually associated with the Agony of Christ- - It has been arranged that the work shall be completed by the Board of Antiquities on behalf of the government Some architectural fragments, Including columns, with capitals In Corinthian style, came to light In the course of the excavation. -- -- Plan Memorial to Allenby. One of the first acts of the new government under Sir Herbert Samuel was to organize a department of antiquities, the principal function of which is the protection of all the historical sites and monuments In Palestine and at the same time to encourage learned societies to make scientific excavations. The Tilstorical monuments of Palestine are not merely Interesting from an antiquarian point of view, but have a human and-- a religious Interest for the great bulk of humanity. Accordingly, an International board has been established to advise the director of antiquities on matters of common interest to the different local societies and schools of foreign powers engaged In archeologlcal research. One of the most holy places of Mohammedanism, familiarly known as the Mosque of Omar, which Is also one, of the most beautiful Moslem buildings extant Is here. The earlier develop-- ment of the Jewish kingdom will be traceable by systematic excavation from the Pool of Slloam upward along the Ridge of Ophel as far as the site of the Temple. There are many interesting bulld-IngsMohammedans and Crusaders, not only In Jerusalem, but scattered through the country. One of the most imposing of the Crusaders' structures is the great fortress at Athlitf on the coast between Haifa and Jaffa. This Is the place from which Richard Coeur de Lion finally evacuated his forces. It is a wonderful and Imposing ruin, and the government ofPalestine Is lading its plans for the systematic preserving and opening up of the monument It has been suggested that Its restoration would be a fitting memo- rial to Lord Allenby, and though no action has been taken officially In this direction, the appropriateness of such S. course Is generally recognized. Promising sites, dating further back Into the earlier history of Palestine be.. fore the Jews, are also awaiting One of these is the ancient fortress of Magiddo, famous as far backas the time of the Pharaohs, and an American university is proposing to make a complete examination of this site. Another Is Belsan, which lies at the junction of the Vale of Esdraelon, with, the Valley of the Jordan In. a commanding position, aptly describe by George Adam Smith as the key - .marked, to Palestine. This site. Is now by Imposing mounds, which have lobe lreen a source of surreptl-tleu- s dtfffuag by cwle hunters aad fealenL It is very satisfactory to be able to say that a second university 1 of exca-Tation- early Hebrew characters worked into the pavement design, were found. The excavation of this Is to be completed by the very learned Dominican arche- -' ologlsts representing theFrench school of archeology in Palestine. "A young and vigorous Jewish archeologlcal so ciety Is making a preliminary examination of various sites of Interest in Jewish history, notably Artuf, Caesarea and Tiberla. The latter Is proving to be of particular Interest and attention was directed to It early after the British occupation, when' numerous traces of ancient buildings of the period of Talmud, Just south of the town, were brought to light by roadmakers and engineers In the course of their duties. Overlooking the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee are the very remarkable and Interesting remains of an early Jewish synagogue. It is to be ioped that on the completion of the excavation steps will be taken and the means forthcoming to restore this 'ancient building, of which a great portion of the rfiasonry Is lying "about apparently as the result of some earthquake. Should It be possible scientifically to reconstruct the building It will prove a unique ad dition to the wonders of Palestine. The chief feature of the last year In the work of excavation has been the opening of the work at Ascalon, which has been undertaken by the Palestine Exploration fund.' The results are not yet published, but are of remarkable n promise. A very fine building of date namely, a massive temple or forum built entirely of Greek marble, possibly the Temple of the Fortune or City Goddess, was one of the wonders discovered. The columns of this building weighed nine tons each, and the capitals three-tonThe whole structure, both floors, walls and columns, Is entirely of marble. It Is to be presumed that the building was. prepared In one of the Greek Islands and transhipped, ready 'for construction, to Ascalon during the first or second century of our era. Traces have been found of a secret well mentioned by one of the early writers, possibly a remnant of the early sacred lake of the famous goddess Derceto., Ascalon was the home of Herod the Great and we are told In early literature that he greatly embellished the city with splendid colonnades. It will In time be possible to recognige these. One. of the objects discovered Is a gigantic foot, measuring over a yard from heel to toe, wearing a sandal, the whole In alabaster, possibly part of a huge statue of his time. The chief- interest to the scientific world is the effort which the Palestine-Exploratifund is making to recover some tangible remains of the Philistines and their civilization, and It Is believed that the layers representing this period have been located, as well as some objects Illustrating their civilization. Unfortunately, the Philistine layer is at. a great depth, five to seven meters (16 to 23 feet) below the surface, and all those interested in the development of our knowledge of Palestine In Bible times must realize that the work of the fund can only be adequately done If adequately supported.

Calmly he descend- ed the ladder, recovered the axe frpm the bumper, climbed back to the roof, tiptoed off the roof to the top of the bank and sat calmly down under a manzanita bush to await results, for he was quite confident that none of the occupants of the confounded ca boose had been treated to anythlng-wors- e than a wild ride and a rare fright, and he was curious to see how Shirley Sumner would behave in an cut-ban- k, Cardigan?"

Today the supper room has taken the placeof the upper room! Play has taken the place of the upper room! Play has taken the place of prayer, and feasting the place of fasting. There are more full stomachs in church than there are bended knees and broken hearts. There is more fire in the range in the kitchen than there is in the church pulpit. When you build a fire in the church kitchen, it often puts out the fire in the pulpit. Ice cream chills the fervor of spiritual life. The early Christians were not cooking in the supper room the day the holy ghost ame but they were praying in, .the upper room! They were not waiting on tables, they were waiting on God; They were not waiting for fire from the stove, but, for the fire from above. They were detained by the command of Grod, and not entertained by the cupning of men. They were all filled with the holy ghost, not stuffed with a stew or roast. Oh, I would like the cooking squad put out and the- praying band put in. Less Ham and bham and more of God. Less Pie and more Piety. Less use for th cook and more use for the Old Book.
