The Plain of Hharon la a narrow green
ribbon stretching along the Mrdlterraean
shore of Palestine from Mt. Cnrmel south
ward to the hills of the Philistines. It Is
nowhere more than seven miles wide and
It la only about fifty miles long, and of
all the land of Canaan, promised to the
children of Israel as the land of plenty,
this plain only still flows with milk and
honey. Under the patronage of the Ger
man emperor a great highway was pro
posed to be built stretching from Jaffa
northward through the Plain of Hharon to
Cnrmel, whence It was to turn eastward
to Nazareth. Only a few miles of this
road was oullt, and It Is the only road In
all that section of Palestine, with the ex
ception of perhaps a half a mile of Roman
paved road near the castle of Athllt which
was repaired by the Crusaders and which
still U In fairly good condition.
The traveler starts out from Jaffa over
this macadamised highway with a light
heart. The sun shines, the breezes blow,
the scent of oranges and pomegranates is
In the air; on one side Is the green-gray
fringe of olive treea outlined against the
barren while hills of the Interior, and on
the other side Is the enow-white lace of
the breakers, and beyond the blue of the
Mediterranean. The road runt between
grove of oranges, fortified behind Im
pregnable barriers of cacti. Here and there
one sees the white-washed house of a
thrifty German settler who has come to the
Holy Land In obedience to a faith which
teaches that all Christians should repair
to the home land of the Savior, and who
has remained here to make the desert
blossom as the roue by the substitution of
European thrift for Arabian Indolence.
But after a few miles the Influence of
the German colonists and of the Jaffa
orange market wanes. The orange groves
give way to ill-kept vlnuyarda. The white
farm houses are no longer seen and In
their sttad are the mud-walled villages of
the Syrian natives, livery evidence of
what we are pleased to call the progress
of modern civilisation is left behind. The
country Is given over to grain fields tilled
as they were tilled in the days of Herod.
There are no trees, no houses, and all too
suddenly the highway cuds, and one's
wsgon rolls out on the green velvet of the
Plain of Sharon.
Although the traveler has seen Jaffa and
Its market places, although he has mar
velled at the wonders of Jerusalem, al
though he has worshiped at the sacred
shrine of Bethlehem, although he has al
ready visited the many holy places of his
torical fame. It Is here on the Plain of
Sharon, In the open air, far beyond the
voice of chanting priests and unconflned
by temple walls, that he finds the Holy
Land of his imagination. This Is the coun
try in which Jesus lived, through which
Jesus walked and where Jesus taught.
Other thlngr have changed. The cities He
knew have been rased to their foundation
atones and have been rebuilt time and time
again since He walked and talked; but 'he
country of the Plain of Sharon is Just as
He left It.
The forests which covered the hills of
Judea, Samaria and Galilee In the days
of Christ have disappeared before the
twin assaults of axe and torch, the fertile
valleys have been deprived of the gathered
moisture of the hilltop woods, and the land
which was flowing with milk and honey
has been laid waste, and Is now, for the
most part, a barren desert. Not so the
Plain of Sharon. Every drop of rain that
fails - in the great ' central range of hills
w hich divide the deep valley 'of the Jordan
from the seacoast Is conserved In tiny
streams which 'drop Into subterranean pas
sages to well up again beneath the soil of
Uils narrow level strip along the coast.
And how thankful Is the land! Nowhere
In the world Is there a more beautiful
stretch of country than the plain laid out
from the foot of Cartnel. The grass of the
waste places grows almost as green as the
wheat and barley of the corn fields. And
the wild flowers add the tribute of color
to the poem of praise. The Plain of Sharon
Is as a green carpet spangled with figures
of scarlet and of purple. Here one finds a
deserted field grown up with lilies of the
valley, enough to be worth a king's ran
som In an American florist's shop, and
there one sees a wilderness of crocus and
narcissus and oycl&men.
But the glory of the plain Is Its profu
sion of scarlet anemones. Millions of them

The wagon makes Its way across the road
Ices plain. A companion sees a deer In
the distance and wonders at the abund
ance of wild game In this old country.
But his wonder ceases when the driver
stops to chat with two men armed for the
chase with sprwrs. Think of men seri

and defense In the year 199!
The wagon halts for luncheon at a well
In the plain. There Is a small village
hidden by mud walls at the crown of the
hill, from whence come the girls down to
the well to get water. They are dressed
In flowing robes of yellow and green and
carry great earthen water Jars on their
heads, Just as did Rachel when she won
the heart of Jacob of old. They come
down to the well, which Is a hole twenty
feet square and thirty feet deep, and walk
down the steps built Inside to the spring
flowing at the bottom, where they fill
their vessels with water. They are not
disturbed by any notions of modern life
and they greet the Europeans with wide
eyed astonishment.
At sunnet one sees a shepherd bringing
In his flock from the day's feeding. He has
piloted his obedient charges In the narrow
spaces between the fields of growing corn,
he has kept them from trespassing upon
the grain, and now he brings them In to
put them In the fold that they may be
guardod during the night against the dep
redations of the wolves and Jackals. He
stands with his crook at the double door
of the mud walls of the fold and divides
the sheep from the goats. One looks on
and wonders anew at the pastoral sim
plicity of the parables of our Dord.
Occasionally the ancient simplicity of the
country is varied by a ruin which at
tests the departed glory of the wrangling
nations which have fought to possess this
fair land. One sees at the very edge of
the ocean a cluster of ruins which have
lost al! semblance of their original form,
all that Is left of the onoe mighty city
of Caesarea. This was ths placs where
Herod, by grant from the Emperor Au
gustus, built a breakwater and made an
artificial port,, which was the only rival
Jaffa has ever known. It was a prosperous
city In the time of Christ, although dis
tinctly Roman and not Jewish. The ruins
of Its amphitheater are a'J that now can
be seen. It was In this city that Paul
delivered his famous oration before the
Roman Governor Felix, and here he de
fended his religion before Festus and that
King Agrlppa, who was "almost per
suaded," to be a Christian. And It was from
here that Paul appealed to Caesar and
from here that h sailed for his last Jour
ney to Rome and martyrdom.
Occasionally one sees In the plain, a
ruined building, whose Gothic or Roman
architecture Identifies it as a relic of the
Crusades. Such were the hospices bui:t
along the road from St. Jean of Acre, to
the holy sepulchre at Jerusalem, to, serve
for the shelter and entertainment of the
pilgrims from Europe , who visited this
country during the two centuries of the
troubled reigns of the Christian kings of
Jerusalem. Most of these are now quite
deserted, but one or two serve to house
a village of natives. . .
The Plain of Sharon, with its carpet of
green and scarlet, with Its mud walled
villages, IV ancient wells, Its shepherds
and their flocks, preserves today the es
sential features of ths life of the people,
of Judea in the time of Christ, although
the grandeur that was Rome, lies burled
in the ruins of Caesarea, and tha Knights
of the Crusades rest In their gravea be
