Turks, Christiana, Jews nl Orrets
Unite In Putting the Sisters of Charity
In Charge of the Ilulldlug and Its
Work An Impressive Scene.
A rnowt fnterewtiuor article of The Jour
nal des Debats describes a reraarVable
scene which took' placo in Jerusalem
The nwd of a municipal hospital for the
reception of all the uick of the city had
long been felt in JeruHaleKu The pasha
an excellent man, ha.ju8t carried out
thin important work, which had already
been beun by his predecessor, Iiahouf
I 'an ha.
lint whom to put in care of the sick?
Jewibti iiurnes? for half the population
is Jewish, and 14,000 more Jews from
Russia are expected. Or Mussulmans?
for Juussulmans are also numerous. Or
Greeks or Armenians, Copts or Catho
lics? TIhj question lonif remained with
out a solution.
Finally tiie president of the municipal
council, accompanied by two ElFendis,
presented himself before Sister Sion, su-
Ierioresn of the Daughters of Charity,
ana asKeu m-r 10 tfive some or ner mun
for the service of the hospital. She r.t
once aked from her 8Ueriors the per-
mission to accept the invitation, and a
few days later the municipality itself
came to thank the sisters for their con
sent, aim oeg tuem at once to arrange
the house for tho reception of the sick.
There was no tune to lose. In earlv
May they received their notice, and on
Sunday, May 10. the opening was to take
place in presence of Ibrahim Pasha ami
the seraglio that is to say, tho council
composed of a member of each national
ity, the heads of all the religious and tin
municipal council.
For three days and three nights the
nuns had no rest. At midday on Sun
day the nuns were all summoned in or
der to meet at 1 o'clock in the large re
ception room. At 1 o'clock the pasha
arrived in state and all the dignitaries
took their places. But the superior and
the sisters, where are they?
A carriage is heard approachin
"Here they com"! At once a serenade
began, and a thousand voices cried
aloud, "Long live the Sisters of Chari
ty!" The soldiers presented arms; the
crowd pressed forward, so that the dra
gomans had difficulty in making a way
for the sisters. But at length thev as
cended the main steps, preceded by the
uu taeir entry an arose, "iou are
welcome, sisters, saui the pasha in ex
cellent French. "I am too much aston
ished at the appearance you have given
to this house, in which you have been
working for only three days, to be able
to congratulate yon as I ought." '.'Your
excellency, we have done our duty.1
said Sister Sion. "I am delighted," re
plied tho pasha, "and we can only con
gratulate ourselves on our choice." The
whole meeting testified to their pro
found sympathy and agreement. "iJo
you find anything wanting, gentlemen,
or is everything as you wishr" said the
pasha, turning to the authorities.
"For my part," said the grand rabbi,
"the most beautiful thing I see in the
hospital is the Sisters of Charity. For
five years we have watched them at
work, aud they have never fallen short
of their professions. They have been
mothers ami sisters to all, whosoever
they might be."
"Long live the Sisters of Charity!" was
the cry on all sides, in the wards, the
corridors, etc. All were full of emo
tion. After the presentation tho pasha
returned to the divan to take part in
a Turkish religious service. "Allah!
Allah!" cried out the assistants, opening
wide their arms and invoking blessings
on the sisters ami the sick.
Tho military doctor, on being present
ed to Sister Sion, said, "Sister, 1 beg
you to employ all your influence with
the pasha to obtain me eight beds, so
that my poor sick soldiers may be prop
erly nursed."
Sixteen doctors of the city who had
been invited to the opening were pre
sented by the physician of the hospital
to the pasha and the sisters. The rabbis,
the Mussulman and Schismatic chiefs
came also to address their congratula
tions to them. Finally the president of
the municipal council assembled all the
personnel of the establishment before the
A rnoving scene then took place. He
caused all to swear rtpect to the 6isters
first of all the medical staff, then the
pharmacists, the nurses, cooks, garden
ers and porters. Each came up accord
ing to his rank aud swore in his own
language and manner what was asked.
When the last had retired the presi
dent said: "Sisters, I confide this house
to you. You are at home. I need not
beg you to act as mothers among your
children. "Tablet.
The World Fnlr wll have the Greatest
Aquarium ever Constructed .
The fish exhibit at the World'
Columbian Kxposition is to be a
wonderful one, and not the least
interesting portion of it, naturally,
will be the aquarial or live fish
display. This will be contained in
a circular building, 135 feet in diam
eter, standing near one extremity of
the main Fisheries building, and in
a great curved corridor connecting
the two.
In the center of the circular build
ing will be a rotunda sixty feet in
diameter, in the middle of which
will be a basin or pool about twenty
six feet wide from which will arise
a towering maws of rocks covered
with moss and lichens. From clefts
and crevices in the rocks crystal
streams of water will gush and
drop to the masses of reeds, rushes,
and ornamental scmi-nqatie plants
in the basin below. In this pool
gorgeous gold fishes golden ides,
golden trench, and other fishes will
disport. From the rotunda one side
of the larger series of aquaria may
be viewed. LlThese will be ten in
number and will have a capacity of
seven thousand tf twenty-seven
thousand gallons of water.
Passing out tof the rotunda by
the entrances a great corridor or
gallery is reached where on one
hand can be viewed the opposite
side of the other a line of tanks and
somewhat smaller, ranging from
750 to 1.500 gallons each in capacity.
The corridor or gallery is about
fifteen feet wide. The entire length
of the glass fronts of the aquaria
will be about 575 feet or over 3,000
square feet of surface. They will
make a panorama never before seen
in any exhibition, and will rival the
great permanent aquariums of the
world not only inside but in all
otht r respects.
The total watercapacity of the
aquaria, exclusive oi reservoirs,
will be 1K,725 cubic feet, or 110,000
gallons. This will weigh 1.102,425
pounds, or almost 00 tons. Of this
amount about 40,000 gallons will be
devoted to the marine exhibit. In
the entire salt water circulation, in
cluding reservoirs, there will be
about K0,(Xl0 gallons. The pumping
aud distributing plant for the mar
ine aquaria will he constructed of
valcanite. The pumps will be in
duplicate and will each have
capacity of 3,000 gallons per
hour. The supply of sea water will
be secured bv evaporating the

A ?Iouter Vessel of Olden Time.
Ptoleimeus Philopater, one of the an
cient kings of Etfypt, is said to have
bnilt a vessel 420 feet long, 56 feet broad.
72 feet high from the keel to the top of
the prow, and 80 feet to the tcp of the
poop. She had four helms of 60 feet;
her largest oars were 56 feet long, with
leaden handles, so as to be more easily
worked. She had two prows, two sterns
and seven rostra or beaks. On both poop
and prow she had figures of men and
animals that were fully 18 feet high.
She had 4,000 rowers, 400 cabin boys or
servants, 2.820 marines to do duty on
deck, besides being provided with im
mense stores of arms and provisions.
St. Louis Republic.
An English gentleman, not a poet and
not recently deceased, always wore in a
braided necklace about his neck the long,
beautiful hair which h.3 cut from his
wife's head dnring her illness. The doc

and the husband allowed no one to cut
it but himself, that he might preserve
jrjjeach shining strand.
Wonderful Campello Dog.
I want to speak of a rather interesting
example of animal sagacity I saw out in
Campello this week. As the perform
ance was of such a rare nature, and
simxly demonstrated the affection dogs
will sometimes have toward horses, 1
will speak of the case. A groceryman
owns a horse and a remarkably intelli
gent canine, and every time the horse is
hitclied to the delivery wagon and it
6tarts the dog is sure to follow in the
rear. In the case I refer to I noticed the
wagon stop in front of a residence, and
as soon as the driver had left the vehicle
the dog commenced to crop grass. He
got under the horse's head, reared on
his hind legs and transferred the grass
to the horse's mouth. Wonderful dog,
that. Brockton Dispatch.
