Codex Sinaiticus '
THE Codex Sinaiticus goes to the British Museum, great
est library in the world, to repose along with Codex Al
exandrinus and other invaluable manuscripts and codices
and books which make the collection at the British Museum
of such great importance. The British paid the soviet re
public 100,000 for the Codex Sinaiticus; and as Tsar Alex
ander II paid only $3500 to the monks of St Catherine for
-the codex nearly a century ago, the Soviets will have consid
erable "capital gain" to report on their income tax blank

Early manuscripts were in two forms, the scroll, which
was a continuous roll of papyrus, and the codex, which con
sisted of vellum leaves bound together in book form. In the
scroll the writing was in columns crosswise of the sheet, and
the reader held it with the end-sticks it was rolled on, one
in each hand. As he read down a column he rolled it from
the right stick to the left Then when he was through the
scroll had to be rerolled back on the right-hand stick before
it could be read again. This was quite a trick because, like
rolling a curtain, it was easy to get the roll running off one
end of the stick. Lazy chaps neglected to rewind the rolL'The
careful man did it by making the revolutions with his two
hands while he held the revolving material under his chin to
Keep it straigirc.
' The codex was an improvement from the old wax tablets
which were made from wood like a child's ?late, with the
depression filled with wax upon which characters were im
pressed. These tablets formed the "leaves" of the book. The
codex substituted vellum for the papyrus of the scroll, and
the waxen tablet This improvement came along about the
time the Bible was being copied extensively, so the early
manuscripts 01 tne isiDie are in coaex iorm, wniie tne pagan
literature staid with the scroll papyrus.
The vellum of the codex was sheepskin. Sheepskin has
two sides, the hair-side and the flesh-side. The former was
yellowish in color, and the latter was whiter; so they tried
to make up the codices with hair-side leaves opening to
gether and flesh-side leaves opening together. The Greeks
started their .books with the flesh-side out, but the Codex Al
exandrinus followed the later Latin style, and had the hair
side out. It was not until the 15th century that paper was
substituted for parchment vellum.
Another thing, of interest about codices. They are di
vided into two general groups, the uncials and the cursives.
The uncials were written in Greek capital letters, when peo
ple were just learning the art of writing with pens and
made their characters large. The laier manuscripts, dating
from the tenth century, use small script in a sort of running
hand, so are called cursives.
This Codex Sinaiticus has
rivals in value and age the Codex Vaticanus in the Vatican
library at Rome. A German student of a century ago, Con-
stantin Teschendorf, thought
asteries and tombs in Egypt, Arabia and Syria he might find
some ancient manuscripts. Finally in 1844 he made his way
to the monastery of St Catherine in the desert country
around the reputed Mt Sinai. The convent was like a fort
and the only way a visitor could enter was by being pulled
op by rope for BO feet The first night Tischendorf was ad
mitted he began searching m the old horary. While examin
ing volumes on the shelves he noticed a fuel basket filled
with waste papers. Most of them were of no value, but finally
the searcher came upon a number of leaves written in Greek
uncials. It proved to be the Codex Sinaiticus. .
Tischendorf made a mistake in showing great delight,
and when he returned next morning to get the rest of the
manuscript it was gone and the monks would not admit they
had it They permitted him to take back td Germany the 43
leaves he had been studying however. In 1833 he visited
the monastery again, but his trip was fruitless. Then he de
cided to enlist the aid of the Tsar who was head of the
Russian Greek Catholic church and whose nresttee extended
to the little monastery in the Mt Sinai country. In 1859 Tis
. chendorf returned and this time the -monks yielded to the
requests' of the Tsar and threw the entire library open to
him. Rnt h VMiMnr. find , trm vf et fh vtrorinna fnAo-r-
though he searched every corner of the place. He was pre
paring to leave when the steward of the convent asked him
into his dingy room to see a Greek Bible he had.
- "Too Ignorant to realize what be had in his possession the
old monk polled oat a hose piece of. red cloth ta which he had
, wrapped op the-loose and disjointed fragments of the manu
script. On its being unrolled be fare him, Tiachendorf, to his
t unspeakable surprise and delight, saw the very; document he
had riven ap all expectation of discovering. It proved to be the

-visit .,: - , . . . s
This time Tischendorf concealed his rapture; but it
took a great deal of maneuvering to get it transferred to
Cairo, where finally the head of the monastery permitted
him to present it to the Tsar under the form of a loan. The
Code remained in Russian hands until the atheist Soviets sold
it-down the river to the British. - 'S ' ' 'i
There are no originals of any of the books of the Bible.
All we have are copies, probably copies of copies, and no two
are exactly alike. The Codex Sinaiticus which is one of the
earliest dating from the fourth
complete, is precious lor its contents; and tne fascinating
story of its discovery adds to its value.

SPEAKING of old manuscripts, the original copy of "The

of Philadelphia for $24,000. He said, "It's priceless and cheap

It Is disappointing to read that enrollment at the state univer

falling off is due to strife ta education circles. The state board should
move wth a firm hand to control the situation and convince the
state that it is boss of the works; then seek to promote education

Final bloody chapters
of Rogue Fiver and coast
Idian wars; Chief John,
who fought to bitter end:
(Continuing from yesterday:)
Another detachment of 150 men
from the southern batalllon took
a position on the elevated prairie
before mentioned, In order to be
in the way of a retreat should the
Indians attempt it This, also, was
With the coming ot day a heavy
fog arose which concealed either
of these forces from the enemies'
view, but which cleared away,
leaving the river in .plain sight.
Contrary to expectations no In
dians were found in the canyon.
But the volunteers, anxious to get
at the enemy they had pursued so
toilsomely for months, made bat a
short pause,; they proceeded an
other mile and h half, under cover
of fir and oak timber, to a ridge
running down to the river, and
sparsely-covered with trees, imme
diately opposite the bar on which
the Indians were encamped.
When the savages discovered
the troops they were within 300
yards of their camp, with the
river between them. Instead of
showing a disposition to tight, the
Indiana were thrown into confu
sion. Many had. not yet come out
of their wickiups. . The women
were running hither and thither,
In alarm. To escape the heavy fire
of the volunteers, these hid them
selves In the timber In the rear of
their camp, while part et their
fighting force stationed them
selves behind rocks and trees and
fought in defense ot their camp
and another portion took to the
cover ot the trees lining the river
oat of range of the volunteers'
guns, to watch the movements ot
the attacking party.
So Interested were they In these

tachment which had hastened to
support the parties In advance,
and tiring was kept np all day by
the whites, with very considerable
loss to the Indians and nothing
saved the savages from a total
rout but the river; and on the
other hand the river cat off their
retreat. The lost of the whites
was one man wounded, Ellas D.
Mercer. That night the regiment
encamped at the Big Meadows.
The following morning Col.
Kelsey and Major Wm. H. Lat

boats two miles below the battle

scouring the mountains In the vi
cinity of the enemy'i camp; while
Lieut. Col. Chapman with an
equal force took np the position
occupied the previous day to pre
vent the escape of the Indians, as
well as to divert their attention
from the movement below.
When the colonel's command
reached the river, however, he
found that his purpose had been
divined, and Indians were la the
thick timber ready to receive him.
He could only- fire on them across
the river, which he did for three
hours, then withdrew, on account
ot the wastage of ammunition. In
this engagement, one volunteer,
John Henry Clifton, was wound

The spies reported the Indians
gone down the river. It was decid
ed to erect a fort at Meadows,
called Fort Lamerick. During
April the volunteers had received
no aid from the regular army.
Capt Smith of Fort Lane had
been directed to make a Junction
with Col. Buchanan's .force at
Fort Orford, whence the united
forces were to repair to the mouth
of the Illinois river to meet Gen.
Joel Palmer, superintendent of In
dian affairs, and the Indians of
Rogue river valley, with whom a
council would be held. Having all
the Indians ot Oregon on his
hands, and some ot those ot Wash
ington, ad most of them in a state
of insurrection, the superinten
dent was axious to forward and
hurry peace negotiations.
The volunteers, however, fought
on, and believed there would be
no peace parley unless the In
dians were forced into it. Many
times the volunteers had called
out to the Indians to come and
have a peace talk and such ad
vances were invariably met with
contemptuous taunts and scoffing
But now the United States au
thorities were to try the effect of
their policies in bringing about
a settlement ot Indian Questions
Capt. Smith moved with his SO
troopers from Fort Lane about
the 13th of April a few days
before the volunteers began to
march to the Meadows. At the
crossing of Rogue river, effected
on a raft, he found a camp ot In
dians which he attacked and des
troyed. Traveling through the moun
tains in rain and snow, climbing
often on foot and leading their
horses, the dragoons suffered
much. They lost the trail in the
tog and strayed about In the
storm seven days. Their provisions
ran out before the weather clear

reach Fort Orford. The erperi
ence was useful as showing what
the volunteers had been enduring.
When CoL Buchanan first ar
rived at the mouth ot the Rogue,
some ot his younger officers and
soldiers plunged into- the forest

and soon they were glad to be
back In camp from their tiresome
and fruitless quest and their

'Cavalcade9 and 'Little Women9
Listed as Year's Best Pictures
By D, H. Talmadge, Sage of Salem
Individual opinion as to the 10
best motion plays ot 19 3 S is only
individual opinion. My "best" may
not be your "best." Several 1033
motion plays which have been ac
corded a high ', rating elsewhere
have not as yet been show in Sa
lem. But of the pictures we have
seen here I venture to say that in
depth of human interest, skill of
direction and excellence of por
trayal, first place is to be accord
ed In equal measure to "Caval
cade" and "Little Women". Fol
lowing these I would meekly sug
gest "Berkeley Square", "Lady
For a Day", "State Fair", "Ras
putin and the Empress", "Se
crets", "Sign of the Cross", "Vol
taire" and "Reunion in Vienna".
Tastes differ in motion plays
as in other things. I presume that
local fandom as a whole will not
coincide with, my view as to which
are the 10 best films ot 11 S3. A
number of really excellent pic
tures not included in this list
have been shown here during the
year. Also hare been shown here
a greater number ot pictures, pro
claimed as excellent, which are no
more than mediocre. And there
have been those not even entitled
to that rating.
To sum up the matter briefly,
if you would have, a satisfactory
list of the It best -films of the
year, make it yourself.
A street corner critic thinks
"Little Women" would have been
a more satisfactory picture had
Blondy;Tlnglehart or some other
ot the giddy "stars" of moviedom,
instead of Katharine Hepburn,
been cast for the "Jo" role. "I
plumb forget that Hepburn was
acting." be says plaintively; "she
was just a girl I used to know."
Rather a nice tribute to the Hep

arrive. In more honest moments,
in those moments when the lights
were out when she was lying in
her bed, she knew that it never
would. She tried a thousand times
to tell. Always then she would face
a future with no Clark beside her,
with no Clark to buy gardenias be
