__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Psalms, lxxxix:12.)--'The North and the South thou hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in thy name.' This is a view of the stairway to the tower of Subeibeh castle. It stands three miles from Cæsarea Philippi, and about one thousand feet higher than this town. It is in sight of Mount Hermon, where the Lord Jesus Christ was transfigured in the presence of Peter, James and John. We are looking toward the North. This castle figured largely in the wars of the Saracenes of Damascus against the Templars of Jerusalem. As it commands the passage from the Huleh to the plains of the Jordan over Hermon to Damascus and the East, it must have been a place of importance at least during those troublous times when such passes were dominated by a frowning castle."
