Be it further known that while his os

we feel It our duty to warn you that his

Some Things. You Want to Know
The Iloly Land Nazareth the Despised.
"Can there any good thing come out of
Nazareth?" In this question Nathaniel, In
whom there was no guile, expressed con
tempt of the Galtleeans, for this little hill
village where Jesus spent thirty of the
thirty-three years of His life. Nazareth
was derplsed for its meanness, for tho
crude manners of Its people and for its
lack of appreciation of the Roman civiliza
tion of the age of Augustus. In fact.
Nazareth was nineteen centuries ago what
"Podunk" Is to American comic papers to
day, and a Nazarene was a country Jay.
It was In this village that Jesus grew from
infancy to the age of 30 years, that period
of His life of which nothing is known save
the Incident of His visit to the temple In
Jerusalem when He was 12 years old. Here
It was that He was subject unto Joseph
and Mary and "Increased In wisdom and
stature, and In favor with God and man."
And to Nazareth He came after His min
istry was begun and taught the people in
the synagogue, but His own townsmen re
fused to receive Him, and upon thuir
threats to cast Him from the cliff He re
moved His home to Capernaum. It waa to
Ills old playmates and childhood com
panions that Jesus said: "A prophet Is
r.ot without honor, save in his own coun
try and In his own house."
But Nazareth, which was despised in that
ancient day, and which rejected Its prophet,
and which gave its name to the epithet
written on the cross where Jesus died, was
saved to the honor and sanctity of cen
turies by those very events. It is today,
perhaps, about the same size aa it was in
the time ot Jesus. It haa about 10,000 pop
ulation, of whom 2,000 are Mohammedans
and 8,000 are Christiana, mostly of the
ureek orthodox faith. Nazareth Is visited
annually by about a half million devout
pilgrims, and after Jerusalem and Bethle
hem It is the most saored city in the Chris
It is remarkable that only Nazareth
of aK the cities of Galilee has retained
through nineteen centuries its population
and importance In the time of Christ
it was a comparatively small town, resting
in a valley high on the side of the hills,
not far from the great highway which
crossed the plain of Esdraelon, and which
waa a great avenue connecting the Greek
city of . Ptolemals, now Acre, with the
prosperous Roman cities on the sea of
Ga.ilee, This country, was then prosperous
and populous. It was cut by paved high
ways and dotted with bustling cities. But
all the glory of that civilization haa de
parted. Acre is a dirty Turkish mudhole,
the cities of the Sea of OalCee are re
duced to shapeless heap's of broken stone,
and on'y Nazareth survives.
The town la built on the slope of one of
fifteen rounded peaks which enclose a semi
circular valley. Its white stone houses,
Its church towers and its minarets pre
sent a most picturesque appearance to the
approaching traveller, and the whiteness
of the picture gives promise of perfect
cleanliness. Once in the town, however,
the delusion Is diapered and there is the
natural and normal dirt and filth of Syrian
cities. But Nazareth, even more than other
cities of Palestine, seems to suffer the
ravages of ophthalmia. Almost everyone
in the' streets has at least one blind eye,
and the number of the totally b'.lnd is ap
palling. The , mothers refuse to brush the
files from the eyes of the babies because
they fear that should the children be too
clean and attractive they would ' attract
the evil eye of a stranger. Thus the poor
babies are condemned by superstition to
Uves of darkness. The English Protestant
missions here are doing a great service in
combatting these superstitions, in promul
gating sanitary knowledge, and in the
oar and treatment of those whose eyes
already ar diseased.
When Jtsus lived In Nazareth, the strict
tanltary laws of the Mosaic code were in
force, and it is not probable that the
people wore so dirty as they are today,
just as it i probable that the Jewish
Nazarenea were superior in learning to
the Syrian Nazarenes of today. At the
same time there is good reason to believe
that the ordinary, every day life of the
people of Nazareth in 1909 does not differ
materia'.ly from that of the fellow towns
men of Jesus, 1900 years ago.
All Nazareth get water from one bounti
ful spring, which is now known a the
Fountain of the Virgin. This fountain waa
the source of water supply In Jesus' day
and there can be no doubt that He came
here with Mary, His mother, hundreds of
times, just a the little boys today go to
the fountain with their mothers. The
fountain is the center of the busiest part
of the ancient town and the moat interest
ing place in Nazareth. The spring wells
Criminal Proceedings Against Agent
at Harvard Dismissed Com
petitor Made Complaint.
Notice has been received by the Updike
Grain company of Omaha that the criminal
proceedings started against Its agent at
Harvard have been dismissed.
This action at Harvard was started under
the antl-dlscrlmlnatlon law passed by the
last lep-ia.ture. The complaint was made
by a competitor of the Updike company,
charging that their agent was paying too
high a price for grain. The Updike elevator
was getting the bulk of the grain sold by
farmers in that vicinity and the competitor
had the Updike agent arrested.
Naturally, the farmers who were getting
the benefit of the high prices paid by
th Omaha concern were much interested
in the outcome of the action. When they
found that it was a competitor In tho
grain buying business who was behind the
action the farmers rallied to tho support
of the Updike company. Seeing the drift,
the prosecution dismissed the case.
FOR HIS BROTHER
Effort Being Mad to Find Adopted
Bon of tho Late Dr. John
Poes any one know the present where
about of John Ogle or Francis Ramac
clottl, the adopted son ot the late Dr.
John Ramacclotti, a former well known
Omaha and Nebraska veterinary surgeon?
Charles Ogle of Men fro, Mo., brother of
th missing boy. would glv a whole lot
to know where his brother Is now living.
The two brothers, according to a letter
received by the police, were adopted from
the Baptist Orphan home at St. Louis,
John being taken by Dr. Ramacclottl, who
gave him the nam of Francis.
Dr. Ramacclotti was for many years
state veterinary surgeon, city veterinary
suigeon and city meat and fruit Inspector.
H. wa prominent In the Ak-tiar-Llen
movement and his death some three years
ago took from Omaha a prominent man.
Since the doctor's death all trace of the
adopted son has been missing. The police
ar. aiding In the search
up under the Greek Church of the An
nunciation, and as tha church Itself Is
under ground the water Is led past the
altar of Gabriel to a well which Is kept
full for the use of pilgrims, and thenca by
conduit to an arched fountain below the
ci urch on the hillside.
Here tho stream flows Into a square
stone troiiKh, from which the water Is
dipped. The overflow forms a pool, in
which the women wash their linen and In
which the children bathe. The church over
the spring Is believed by the Greeks to be
the exact site of the house In which Mary
lived and In which she received the saluta
tion of the angel. The Catholics have an
other Church of the Annunciation, In an
other part of the city, for which the same
things are claimed. But according to tra
dition the holy house of Nazareth is not
here. It Is the legend that on May 10, 1291,
when the houxe which had been the home
of the Blessed Virgin was In danger of
belrg desecrated by the Mohammedans, It
was lifted bodily from Its foundations and
was borne by the hands of angels through
the air to a town In Dalmatia. After three
years, by the same miraculous means, the
holy house was removed to I.orctto. In
Italy, where It still Is an object of venera
tion by many pilgrims.
The visitor is shown the site of the
syi agogue wherein Jesus taught, the place
where Joseph had his carpenter shop, the
brow of the hill from whence the Nazarenes
soi giit to cast down Jcfus and many other
traditional historical places. While It la
Impossible to ascertain the exact authen
ticity of these sites, one Is compelled to
believe that these things actually did take
pltce somewhere In this Immediate vicinity.
Nazareth, more than Bethlehem, and much
more than Jerusalem, Is potent to recon
struct In the imagination the life of the
Every visitor to Nazareth Is of course
especially Interested In the carpenter shops
to be seen In the bazar. So great haa been
the demand of tourists for bits of wood
work wrought by a carpenter of Nazareth
that the Industry has responded by a par
tial adoption of modern methods. Every
other trade is carried on Just as It was In
the day of Jesus' apprenticeship, but the
carpenters have arisen from their seats on
the floor to 'work at a carpenter's bench
such as is used In America. They have
gone so far as to buy a few modern tools,
and they have a'most succeeded in de
stroying the romantio Interest of their
peculiar trade In their particular town.
Climbing to the summit of the hill in
whose slope the town Is built the visitor
to Nazareth commands a wonderful view,
which undoubtedly is the same as that
which delighted the eyes of the Son of
Mary. On the west one sees the blue Medi
terranean, and the green slopes of Carme'..
To the east there Is Mount Tabor. Between
lie that country In which were enacted
th great events of the history of the
kingdom of 'Israel, n sight are the bat
tlefields of Deborah and Barak, the scene
of Slsera'a defeat, the scene of the st rate
gem of the pitchers and candles, and of the
triumph of the sword of the Lord and of
Gideon. One may see the country where
Saul and Jonathan waged their disastrous
warfare against the Philistines. One may
see the country over which Jehu raced In
his chariot to Jezreel, one may see the
ruined tower of the city which wa the
home and the' death place of the cruel
Jezebel. (W'triay see the high natural
altar where: Elijah overcame the prophets
of Baal. One -My see the denuded moun
tains which bespeak the barren estate of
modern Palestine, and at one's very feet
In th valley of Nazareth, there Is a rem
nant of the olive groves and vineyards of
tha )nd which once flowed with milk
and honey.' '
Nasareth was unknown to history until
Jeu gave it prominence. But ever since
Ills day it has been sacred both to the
Christian worshipers of Jesus Christ and
the Mohammedan worshipers of the Lord
Isa, sort of Maryam, of the vfl&ge of En
Nazlrah, who' was crucified in Jerusalem.
The followers of Jesus were first known as
Nazarenes, a name which was applied to
them by the Jews, and which persisted In
Palestine even after the Romans had
given the "peculiar people" the nickname
of Christians. The Mohammedans to this
day speak of Christians aa Nazarenes, the
Arabic form being "An Nasranlyyah."
Thus Has Nazareth, the despised, been
nreerved from destruction and from ob
livion by the power of the prophet whom
il had refused to honor because He was
not a stranger.

"JIM" HILL SHOWS FAITH. .
IN NATIONAL CORN SHOW
Prise Grain and Grasses from Omaha
Exposition Are on Exhibition
In St. Panl.
"James J. Hill and L. W,' Hill are cer
tainly showing their appreciation of the
National Corn exposition. Their depart
ure from Omaha December 9 by no means
marked the close of their campaign of
boosting," said Will A. Campbell, man
ager of tho publicity work for the Com
mercial club of Omaha,, who returned
from St. Paul Saturday.
"Mr. Hill has leased a big storeroom
with one entrance within twenty-five feet
of the exit of the Union station in St.
Paul and the other entrance only two
doors from the Union station. In this
room the.HUls have collected all of the
exhibit which they had in Omaha, to
gether with all the prize grains and
grasses at the National Corn exposition
which they could collect. The grains
which won the special Mill prises are all
there and on each bundle hangs a prize
ribbon from Omaha.
"To go into the room gives but one ex
pression, 'See what we won at Omaha
and to win at the National Corn exposition
is an honor to any country or state.'
''The attention of thousands of land
seekers is attracted to this room by an
electric sign by night and one equally as
effective in the daytime. ' It draws any
one interested In things which grow, and
they are all given an opportunity to see
what won at Omaha.
"The effect of this piece of enterprise
on the part of the Great Northern can
only be to stimulate interest In the corn
show at Omaha. While In the room with
Mr. Hill we heard a North Dakota man
remark, 'If that peck of oats won a prize,
I will go down there next year and win
a thousand dollars.' "
Mr. Campbell says the city ticket office
of the Great Northern in Minneapolis and
St. Paul are both hung with corn show
pictures, while the president's office has
A collection scattered over a long table
In the center of the room". He says the
Great Northern is becoming famous for
its boosting such enterprises as the corn
show and If the show Is held In Omaha
again L. W. Hill and his distinguished
father can certainly be counted In on the
Mr. Campbell went to St. Paul at Mr.
Hill's Invitation talk over the plans for
the agricultural and conservation congress
to be held in St. Paul In March with
President L. W. Hill and Governor Eber
hart of Minnesota.
"Both Mr. Hill and the governor are
pushing the Idea fostered at the Omaha
corn show, better farming, and are sup
plementing It by the most tireless work for
good country roads," said Mr. Campbell.
