__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(I. Samuel, xxix:1.)--'Now the Philistines gathered together all their armies to Aphek: and the Israelites pitched by a fountain which is in Jezreel.' This picture illustrates for us the method of traveling in Palestine. There are very few roads over which a carriage or a buggy can pass in the Holy Land. In going from Jerusalem to Nazareth there is nothing but a path. Tourists even have in many places to ride in single file. So rocky is this single pathway that it often becomes necessary in going down steep hills to alight from the saddle and walk. The horses and mules are very sure-footed, and appear to have learned from many generations of experience how to pick their way among the rocks, and to hold their footing even on the side of the steepest and roughest mountains. In the above conveyance the family of the man who leads the horse is balanced and packed away in the covered boxes you see strapped to the horse's back."
