Some Things You Want to Know
The Holy Land Carmel by-the-Sea
A mountain alter ' to tha worship of the
true God, halljwed by centuries upon cen
turies as the home of holy men.'Carmel-by-the-sea
Is the most remaikable and most
beautiful natural feature of the coast line
nf D.l.utln. Tt ( a YriTTi i n t :i t n Aiorht miles
long, about 1,800 feet ' high at lta Inland,
peak and 500 feet high 'where it Juts into
the sea, dividing the JPlftlns of Esdraelon,
on tha north, and Shftron' on the south.
The Arabs call it nowJebel Mar Elyas,
because in Jewish, Ctjrfran. and Moham
medan sacred. tradItloa4xmel Is connected
with the story of the Praphet Elijah. It
was here that he lived In the caves of the
Prophets, and this wasi the- scene of his
triumph as the Prophtft of Jehovah over
all tha priests of Baal. ., ..
The exeeellenoy of Carmel, which waa a
synonym for all beauty i. In' the days of the
Kingdom of Israel, no longer exists as
It did when Salomon sang of tt, for the
forests have been destrdyed and new trees
have not been planted. The heavily wooded
slopes of the Carmel of old can be seen
only In the imagination, for today the
greater" part of . the mountain Is a bare
desolate expanse of rocks. But Carmel
at tha point whera It stretches Into -the
sea has been reclaimed from the desert
Dy tha religions order of the Carmelites,
and it is now a dellglU' to every visitor
to the Holy Land. .
An exeellent road cut fnto the moun
tain 'aide, Its tin aces built up with heavy
masonry, leads from the port city of Haifa
up to the Convent on the brow of the hill
overlooking the sea. Visitors are kindly
received and hospitably' entertained at the
Monastery, which Is one of the most in
teresting in Palestine.
Carmel has been a sacred place from the
earliest times. The roost ancient records
of the Hlttlte peoples Indicate that Carmel
was a mountain dedicated to the wor
ship of the gods of that lime. It come Into
Christian, Jewish and Mohammedan lore
as the abiding place of the Prophets
Elijah and Ellsha. It was here that
Obadlah hid "a 100 men of ' the Lord's
prophets by fifty In' a cave, and fed them
with bread and water,"... The sons of the
Prophets dwelt on this mountain, In caves
and In low dark tents, from the time of
Elijah until their convention Ho Christian
ity. In the third and fourth centuries
Greek hermits resorted in great numbers
to Mount Carmel and took up their abode
In its caves. They and their successors
kept watch here before this great alter
until the Crusades when, in 1170, the Latin
Order of Carmelites waa founded here
and the Monastery was begun.
Tha monks were maaaacreed by tha
Mumtlukes In 12'L when , the Christians

were finally Sxpelled from Palestine, but
there wore still a few hermits who kept
the faith until the fifteenth century, when
the monastery was re-established under Its
present constitution. When Napoleon Bon
aparte beseiged Acre in 1799 the monastery
waa utilised as a hospital and upon the re
treat of tha Frertoft the buildings war de
stroyed by the Turks.
Early In tha nineteenth century a monk
named Glan Battlsta came on a pilgrimage
to Carmel 'as an act, of penance. Ha made
a vow to rebuild the Monastery and the
present edifice is the result of the fourteen
yeara of his travels and begging. - But .even
he, when he reached Ca'rmel, found an al
tar and an archway, and someone on the
mountain to ; keep up . the worship of the
God to whom It so long had been devoted.
Carmel also was a consecrated Spot In
Asiatic mythology. In tha time of Tacitus
It waa so holy that there was no temple
or image there, but only an altar to all the
gods. It was then that the pagans unwit
tingly worshipped th Jewish God Jehovah,
even as the Greeks of Athens later had an
altar to the Unknown God. ' Pliny says that
Carmel waa the name both of- the shrine
and the god who waa worshipped there,
That great historian declares that the ora
cle which promised the Roman empire to
Vespasian resounded from the summit of
this sacred mountain.
From the cliff at the top of the moun
tain where the Monastery buildings are set
one looks down a sheer precipice 600 feet
to the narrow plain, perhaps a half mile
wide, which separates the foot of the moun
tain from tha sea. The greater part of the
mountain is owned and governed by the
Carmelite monks and their boundary line
Is nyirked by a high stone wall, effectu
ally keeping out off trespassers. Just out
side this wall, at the foot or the mountain,
Is the German colony. These thrifty people
have established a prosperous fruit-growing
community and their village la In every
respect a copy of a village of the Rhine.
A little further away to the north, but
in easy walking distance, Is the seaport of
Haifa, an Increasingly important town.
It has a population of about 16,000 people,
and Is by far the cleanest Turkish town
In Palestine. It shines by contrast with
the older and more historic Acre, which
Is only five miles away on the northern
shore of the Bay of . Haifa, a roadstead
formed by the projection of the promon
tory of Carmel. Haifa la the Mediterranean
terminus of the Hadjas railway which
runs from Haifa, by way of the Sea of
Galilee to Damascus. This is the longest
and most Important rallyway In the holy
land, and It crosses the great German
Arabian railway . which penetrates the
fcSA-Ztel ?Cr0 S30s-
f -: ... '
deserts of Moab to the eastward of the
Jordan. The operation of this railway
waa Interrupted by the disorder attend
ing the Young Turk revolution, but It has
been reopened under a new administra
tion which promises to make It a factor
In the restoration of the proaperlty of the
country of Galilee.
The native population of Haifa seems to
have profited ,by the example of the thrifty
German colonists who are their neighbors.
The town la blessed With many schools,
Latin, Greek and Protestant, and even the
Mohammedans have established an educa
tional system which goes beyond the mere

One may see In Haifa any day an exhi
bition of physical strength which rivals
the performance of "professional" strong
men 111 the west. Haifa la the port
through which the weavers of Damascus
Import thoir cotton. Practically all of
this Is Egyptian cotton and cornea In the.
large Egyptian bales of 600 pounds each;
The Arab longshoreman takes one of these
huge bales for his particular burden. Four
men' lift It to his back, and a rope which
passes kround the bale is placed over his
forehead, and he walks along ill a half
orouchlng attitude, from the dock to the
warehouse, a distance of 100 yards, carry
ing this burden of a quarter of a ton and
supporting Its weight by the band across
his forehead. It seems almost impossible
that so many men could be found In any
cne place possessed of such great strength,
but It ia nothing unusual to see a proces
sion of a score of these longshoremen each
carrying a bale of cotton. , ,
Haifa Is built on a western model, its
Htreots are wide enough to admit the use
of carriages, Its shops have glass win
dows and some of them even .have show
cases. Its police force Is gaily uniformed
in a costume which la a compromise be
tween Berlin and Constantinople. Once
the city boasted a system of street light
ing and the lamp posts, ,vlth their sockets
for oil lamps, are atlll in evidence, . but
the moonless-night now veils the olty of
Haifa In darkness as deep as -ever hung
The town Is interesting because It Is
new, because' its business Is a combina
tion of marine shipping and railway
activity', because its religious energy Is
devoted to teaching the young and , not
to the exploitation of some sacred shrine,
and because It shows a promise of that
physical regeneration which may be pos
sible In Palestine under the combined In
fluence of the Young Turks, the Ztontxt
Jews and the Christian missionaries."
On the shores of this bay, set In the
protecting arm of Carmel, many cities
and many civilizations have flourished.
Here was a seaport of the Hittttes, here
was I stronghold of Canaan overthrown
by Joshua. Here was the landing place
of Alexander the Great, and here was
built the great Greek city of Ftolemals.

Here landod a portion of the Roman
army which completed the destruction of
the Hebrew nation. Hero came Richard
of the Lion Heart to support a Christian
dynasty, arid here the Crusadars made
their lantstand against the .victorious
armies of the Cresent. Here struggled the
contending forces of Arabs, Egyptians and
Turks for mastery In the Syrian littoral.
Here came Napoleon the Great, laying In
blood the foundations of his' glory. And
now comes tjie railroad, the telegraph
and the missionary, the three element
which destroy the ancient day and com
pel acceptance of what 'we are pleased td
call modern civilisation.'1
But over it still - stands Carmel, un
changed and unchanging, the altar of, the
Most High God,, .the sentinel which
watches over the Holy Land.
