Long ago, the Moslems sealed up
the Golden Gate, believing that as
the Saviour, had entered Jerusalem
through It before, He would use It
again on His return.
In Fuller's "Plsgah Sight of Jeru

Golden Gate Is given. After describ

And so it Is that the linings and the

the accompanying illustration, has
undergone many changes since sacred
times. There are a few olive trees
there, but they scc-m out of place,

Russian tower has boen erected la'
the vicinity of the Golden Gate.
The Garden of Gctbsemane looks
like some modern adjunct to a
country villa. Franciscan fathers,
have Khored up some of the morel
venerable olive trees, and iron rail

give the sacred region a pronounced

white-faced men in yellow, moving
with an air of combined defiance and
surreptitious servility along roads that
look suburban, between large, light
colored, new houses." .
