ISut when I climbvd tho last ridge, and
looked ahead with a sort of painful bus
pense, Jerusalem did not appear. We wero
U.OOO feet above (ho Mediterranean, whoso
bluo wo could distinctly see, fur to tho wont,
through notches in tho chain of hills. To
tho North, the mountains were gray, deso.
Into and awful. Not a shrub or treo re
lieved their frightful barrenness. An up
land tract, covered with whito volcanic
rock lay beforo us. Wo met peasants with
asses, who looked, to my eyes, as If Uioy
had just left Jerusalem. Still forward wu
urged our horbcs, and reached a ruined
garden, surrounded with hedges of cactus,
oyer which I saw domes and walls in tho
distance. I drew a long breath and looked
at I'rangois. Ho was jogging along with
out turning his head ; ho could not have
been so indifferent if that was really tho
city. Presently wo reached another slight
rise in the rocky plain. lie began to urgo
his panting horse, and at tho same instant
wo both dashed on at a break-necr' callop
round tlio corner of an old wall on tho top
of tho bill, and lo! tho Holy City! Our
Greek jerked both pistols from his holsters,
and fired them into tho air, as wo reined up
on tho ttcep.

We allowed our horses to walk slowly
down tho remaining half milo, to tlio Jaffa

shawl over his head, was sketching tho city,
while an Arab held an umbrella over him.
Inside thu gate, wo stumbled over an Italian
