__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., xxvii: 6,7,8.)--' And the chief priest took the silver pieces and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood, and they took counsel and bought with them the potter's field to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called the field of blood unto this day.' And so we have with us still the same field a little way outside the walls of Jerusalem. At the bottom of this field, or hill, is the Valley of Hinnom, where children in ancient times were sacrificed to Moloch. It was called the place of fire, and sometimes Gehenna. It is now a place of tombs and a resort for lepers. The earliest mention of the Valley of Hinnom is in Josh, xv: 8."
