The Jensen Ford was brought to toe Swea Motor Company's garage. The front end of the car Is a complete wreck. It Is said the Saunders car was in a worse condition. In the last article we published of Mrs. E. J. Rawson's foreign travels, she had been as far as Cana in the Holy Land. From Cana the party or tourists went to Nazareth for the night. They stopped and drank out of Mary s well and saw native women come down for water. The women would fill large Jars and carry them on their heads to their homes. . Church of the Annunciation. After a night's rest the party visited the Church of the Annunciation. They went downstairs behind the altar and viewed the carpenter shop which belonged to Joseph and the kitchen which was'the Blessed Virgin's. Th next place visited was Sohechem. Ja cab's well was passed on the way. This well is supposed to have been dug by Jacob when he was returning from foreign lands. It is 150 feet deep and at one time was nearly filledMWth rocks thrown into it by tourists. The British cleaned ft out, and now the water Is drawn out by a windlass for the benefit of the thirsty. Party Goes to Jerusalem. The tourists then travelled to Jerusalem where they put up at the Hotel Notre Dame. The next morning they visited the Mosque of Omary T|ie where Christ had his trial. The house where Peter went in and wept for the Lord could also be seen and the house belonging to Mary Where Christ held lls last supper with his twelve apostles was visited. From the steps the spot >f ground bought fcy Judas with thlr- Jy pieces of silver could be seen. Ju* das obtained the money by betraying the Lord. The Garden of Gethsemane was next. This is the spot where Christ prayed to be relieved from the terrible trials that were .coming to Him. The garden is 19 feet square and is right in back of a Catholic church. The City of Bethlehem. In Bethlehem which is only five miles from Jerusalem the party was shown the manger where Christ was jorn. It was located on the Mount of Olives. Back to Jerusalem and to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. In front of the church Is an arch which Is supposed to mark the spot where Judas betrayed the Lord. Back of the altar In the church and down a few steps was a room containing the rocl on which Christ was annolnted. On farther was a little room that it Is thought to have been His tomb. The guide showed the hill Christ climbed when he was carrying the cross.

On next Sunday, July 20th, there Is to be a group meeting of several rural Sunday Schools at High Lake under the auspices of the American Sun- spot on which it stands Is one of toe most sacred in the world. It Is said that there Is-where the Garden of Eden was located. The hill near it is very historical because it is said that Abraham came down to offer his son, Isaac, for sacrifice on the hill. David also offered a sacrifice on that hill. Solomon built a temple to the Lord on that spot., The Mosgue of Omar. The Mosque of Omar was built in 1810 by the Mohammedans. It is 350 feet by 280 feet and the dome is 115% feet in height In the center of the mosque is a rock which is 57 feet by 42 feet. The guide gave out the information that Mohammed stood on the rock when he ascended into Heaven. He said that when Mohammed had arisen six feet in .the air the rock was still clinging to his feet and the Anpel Gabriel came from Heaven and pushed'toe rock to toe ground. The guide claimed one could still see the imprint of Mohainmed's feet' and Gabriel's hands on toe rock. The windows in toe mosque were very beautiful and The Lutheran Hospital. The next day Gordon's tomb was shown, which some believe was the tomb of Christ. From there the party went to the Lutheran hospital which is supported by the German Lutherans. The hospital takes the poor and the children and doctors them free of charge. The parents are allowed to see the children twice a week. The children get very good treatment and also some study. In connection with the hospital there is a home for friendless children. At that time there were one hundred in it, being taught the essentials of Christianity and hygiene. The children were mostly Arabs and were very orderly and dignified. See ttio Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is approximately twenty-eight miles from Jerusalm.

"A year ago when the group gathering was held there were fifty-six who went from Galbraith. We believe that everyone who went felt more than repaid for having gone. This year we would like seventy-flye to'make up our caravan. Set this day aside for that and let nothing interfere, unless it be something-over which you have no control. The exercises will be at ten a. m. We were made happy last year by the fact that some of us were the first on the'ground notwithstanding the distance we had to drive was greater than that for any other Sunday School. Let us see if we can't all be there before ten 'this time. We will return in time for the usual evening services here at Galbraith that evening, and would like to see just as many out then as we are anxious to have drive to High Lake. Of course, it goes without saying, there will be no Sunday School or preaching here in the morning. , Mid-week prayer meeting Friday night at eight o'clock. Galbraith is to hold a camp meeting August 10th to 31st. What could be a better way for anyone to spend their vacation than to bring their whole family and come with camping outfit and take in the entire meeting? Or if you cannot be here for the full time come as early as possible and leave when you must. Begin making plans such as that you may have this privilege. And write to all your friends.

'"The Beautiful Gate.' ' The next place to be seen was "The Beautiful Gate", which did not acquire its name for its .beauty but for the many beautiful things that have happened there. Christ went through it in what is known as His triumphal entry. In itself it is nothing but a stone gate and is closed and the guide told that it would remain closed until Christ returns. There is a Wailing Wall near there that is 156 feet long by 58 feet high. The Jews go there every afternoon to wail and pray. Mount Zlon Visited. Mount Zion was climbed. This was made entirely of gold. A smaller casket measuring -about three, feet in length was" seen.' It contained a lock of hah- of the, wife of Kinff Tut.
