WOMEN CAN FRUIT
Tot at Child Saving Institute
to Have Fruit to Eat This
CARDS ARE SENT OUT
, By MELLIFICIA-Auj. 21.
When you are enjoying the t
i licioul fresh fruits of the lummer or
( the choice contents of your pre
:' tervrtl fruit jar in the winter, do you
' ever think of those who cannot in
dulge their liking for fruit? Do you
ever consider that the health of some
' one else beside yourself demands the
f eating of wholesome fruit? The lit
' tie ones at the Child Saving Institute
: need a large amount of fruit in their
- simple diet, for children, almost mre
than grown-ups, need light, refresh
! me foods. An effort hat always been
' made to provide this necessity for
them at luncheon and at the evening
meal. But those in charge of the in
: ttitution have all they can do to per-
form their regular duties and have
little time to spend in canning fruit
. This has always made the winter sup
: ply of canned fruit inadequate.
. In an effort to remedy this lack
Mrs. Charles Kountze and her help
ers are tending out to at least 300
persons cardt bearing this request
''Will you please save the Child Sav
ing Institute one or more jars of
each kind of fruit that you can this
summer?'' They are tending these
requests with the hope that from
the recipients of the cardt and their
friendt a liberal response will come,
and the seventy little tots at the home
will show their gratitude by. whole
some, hearty growth.

One of the most extraordinary
placea on the earth is a valley near the
northwestern border of Arabia, con
taining the "dead city" of Petra, the
Biblical Sela, meaning "rock." It lies
eastward of the remarkable deores-
sion of El Ghor, or the Wad-el-Araba,
a strange cleft in the earth's crust
which hunt northward from the Aka
ba arm of the Red Sea, and contains
in ita deepest part the Dead Sea,
whose surface is nearly 1,300 feet be
low sea level.
At tome time in the geologic past
the rocks fell away along the line of
this depression, leaving a "fault" in
the crust. It it bordered with wild,
barren mountains. .Near the Mount
Hor of the Bible a way exists leading
from El Ghor to a basin among the
mountains which constitutes the val
ley of Petra. This valley, surrounded
by steep and rugged slopes and per
pendicular precipices, ia of an "L"
shape, ita enclosed plain covering
about one square mile.
A more secluded and unexpected
site for a city could not be imagined
and yet there was a time when Petra
contained, it said, 100,000 inhabitants.
and when it certainly enjoyed great
commercial prosperity and was adorn
ed with costly buildings of architec
The most signal natural feature of
Petra is a gorge, or canyon, a
mile in length, hundreds of feet deeo
and in places only ten feet wide,
which serves as the entrance way into
the now abandoned and ruined city.
it it very ditticult to get into the val
ley over the surrounding mountains,
so that the crooked gorge it like a
gateway in the shape of a long, nar
row, high-walied passage, which could
easily be made absolutely impassable.
.through the gorge runs a stream
which abundantly supplied the city
within, and was in former times
carefully restrained within its banks,
while a tunnel through the rock pro
vided for the overflow and prevented
inundation. The gorge is now partly
choked with rocks and debris accu
mulated during many centuries, but in
the days of Petra'a splendor it waa as
well cared for as a street.
At present Petra is onlv a acattered
skeleton of a city, haunted at night
by jackals, and partly occupied in the
rainy season by wandering tribes with
their aheep, goats and cattle. The
floor of the valley it covered with
brbken and dispersed ruins, while the
steep wallsa encircling it are honey
combed with innumerable tombs,
many of great size, and magnificently
sculptured, and all cut out of the na
tive rock, a kind of sandstone, which
glows with color red. rose, ourole
In addition to the tombs, manv of
which have been partly obliterated by
the wear of time, there are, also cut
out of the solid rock, a number of
large temples. One of these, the
Deir, has a facade about 160 feet in
length. In the wall of the entrance
passage itself is cut a beautiful tem
ple, called the Khazneh, whose col
umns, capitals and other architectural
details' excite the admiration of all
who aee them.
Some of the architectural features
of the ruined city date back to the
timea ot the Nabataeans, who were
contemporary with the early king
dom of the Israelites. Others are
Greek, dating from the days of the
Greek domination over Petra, and Ro
man, for Petra was once an impor
tant city of the Roman empire, and
was visited by the Emperor Hadrian.
It owed its prosperity to the fact that
it lay on the great caravan route from
the east to Europe, but after the rise
of Palmyra, the desert capital of
Queen Zenobia, Petra began to de
cline, and its commerce was diverted.
In the early centuries of our era
Petra was Christianized, but the
Mohammedians afterward drove out
the Christians. It was captured by
the Crusaders, who built a citadel,
some of whose ruins are yet to be
seen, but they abandoned it in 1189,
and after that it sank into ob
scurity. While in possession of the
Crusaders its fame had gone all
over Europe, but from the end of
the twelfth to the beginning of the
nineteenth century it was virtually
forgotten and no European saw it
until Burckhardt, the celebrated
traveler, visited it in 1812.
Still, on account of difficulty of
access ana ot danger trom the wild
cnoes living in its vicinity, it was
teen by very few travelers during
the whole of the nineteenth century.
Within the last . decade, however,
the Turkish government has made
regulations that have removed many
of the obstacles to visitors. Among
the most recent visitors to Petra
are Lee Garnet Day and Joseph
Wood, Jr., who describe their visit
in the American Museum Journal.

that far, far too many of us have
learned to be cruelly suspicious of
people we don't know and so are
afraid to give the benefit of the doubt

men used to boAst that they always
believed a man honest unless he
proved himself a thief. But in the
big cities the rule seems to be to be

themselves honest! Can't we recover
some of the old neighborliness of
heart and spirit which will make it
possible for us to give a friendly
greeting to the people who live about
us? Can't we learn to feel that the
joys and sorrows, the hopes and fears
and the movements, great and small,
