And yet, one couldn’t help but laugh, as the first sound that greeted the ears on waking was the “donkey band's concert” —far worse than a “Waterbury alarm” clock-- consisting of the quick dimr-dong of heavy bronze donkey- bells and the continuous tremen dous beating of tin-pans accom panied by the occasional bray of the donkeys as they passed in rapid transit around about the tents ot the camp Not only can you not sleep, but you dare not sleep, longer, for, even while breakfast is served soon after this “blare,” the brought his head to Damascus,and b Tried it beneath the spot where the shrine is erected. “It may be from a confused tradition of the vision of St. Paul, that a belief pre vails among the Mussulmans of Damascus that our Lord, having ascended from the Mount of Olives at Jerusalem, has descended, or will descend, on the Mount of Figs at Damascus. One of the minarets of the Great Mosque is called the Minaret of Isa—Jesus— from the expectation that this will be the spot, in a dark neglected chamber half way up the minaret, where he will stand to judge the world, and within whose walls every prayer offered is on tlrs ac count supposed to ensure success." From this point we had a fine view of the whole city and its environs tents are being taken down, and ■ afforded us. Of course, this is but baggage must be ready to move ! one of many mosques here. on, for “the Damascus Overland Party” has employees that wait for nobody. Today we ourselves do not leave until early afternoon, spending the time meanwhile in the city of the Damascenes, and seeing more of its sights;wbile our camp goes.on ahead of us to be pitched for us when the day’s jour ney is completed and rest from its hardships demanded. The morning opened with a visit to the Great Mosque of the Omeiyades, on the site of which has from times of old stood the central shrine of the religious wor ship and devotion of the Damas cenes; where, for instance, in the days of Naaman the Syrian was the famous “House of Rimmon”— 2 Kgs. 6:18—the temple of the great god of the Syrians, whose altar was so wonderful that Ahaz, King of Judah, had one made like it in theTemple of Jehovah at Jerusalem—2 Kgs. 16:10-13,— On this site the Romans built a great Temple to Jupiter, considerable remains of which remain around 1 Just outside the Mosque’.-* pre cincts on the north we saw the Tomb of the great and magnani mous Saracen, Saladin—Salah ed-Din—hero cl the Second Cru sade; and affixed thereto was hang ing the golden wreath presented by the Gorman Emperor William 711 on his recent visit to the Land. It is a fine mausoleum and has some fine faience work about it. We took in the wonderfu mixed multitude of the street from Bag dad and gateway, and more of the bazaars and workshops, giving especial attention to the Greek division, and aiso to the Military Barracks. After this we returned to where our camp had stood be fore our Arabs stole away in the early morning light, got luncheon, chose the horses for our overland ride of 225 miles to Jerusalem, and were off early after noon, the sky having cleared beautifully and “the outlook as bright as the promises of God" to those that trust all things to His keeping!
