Simmons is a rapid an fluent talker Upon each occasion h haa spoken two hours but in these tw lectures he has only succeeded in car rying his audience as far as Egypt Obviously there yet remains muc to be said and as Dr Simmons Is keen and close observer and origina and vigorous in his descriptions hi hook will no doubt find ready sale an be widely read In his first lecture Dr Simmons re H lated his experiences in London Rom and Athens passing very hurriedl W over tiie other cities and countries h I visited I In his second lecture he began in Palestine and closed in Egypt H described

witnessed a wedding In Palestine and his description of 1 was exceedingly interesting Thi bride was not present during the cere mony which was weird and fantastic The custom among the natives is when a young man meets a young wo man he desires to make his wife he tells his father about it The father of the wouldbe groom goes to the father of the young woman If he looks upon the proposal with favor lie goes to the chief who fixes tho amount of the dowry the proom must pay In arranging all these details the young woman is not consulted Indeedshe may not meet her husband for two or three days after the cere mony Dr Simmons description of the fun eral of a little child was graphic and interesting When a child dies a stranger is selected to bear it to the cemetery No coHln Is used Wood Is so scarce that they cannot afford to use it for coffins The child IB borne In the arms of a stranger and the cov ering is a cloth Some of the mourn ers precede the corpse and others fol low it and all while on the way give utterance to wails and doleful Bounds No graves are Aug The body of the child Is laid on the surface of the earth Around it is piled a kind of cement until it reaches a height slightly above the body Sticks are Qum laid from wall to wall over the body and on this IB placed more ce ment until the little mound Is from two to three feet In height Dr Simmons rapidly sketched scenes about Mt Carmel Bethlehem Jericho the Dead Sea Sea of Gallilee tomb of Rachel fountain of Elijah Cairo the Pyramids the Sphinx temple of the sun the museum near Cairo the ruins of Memphis the Diana and many other ob jects and of historical interest lie gave an intensely Interesting de scription of the great Mohammedan university where there are2000 pupils and 600 professors and the Koran com the course of study But It WM not our Intention to at PRICE FIVE tempt any synopsis of the lecture 1 would be impossibleto do It Justice I a newspaper article of ordinary length Nobody could fully

The Woodiand club Is very anxioui to retain the trophy and have inform ed President Goethe of the Sacramentc Tennis Club that they will enter a least four teams whereas two Is the most that any club has heretofon played It Is whispered that the liave a coach a California Club San Francisco professional who has play ed on eastern and Canadian courts The Klune Floberg cup was won last year by Miss Rose Sheehan and Mrs Fred Moore They will unquestionably have quit a rub this time for in addition to the ladies teams from the citrus colony t is whispered that Woodalnd wants his cup too Wo do not understand why the Sac ramento papers persist In repeating the rumor that the Woodland club has a coach from the California club who s a professional and has played on eastern and Canadian courts The Woodland club has no coach profes sionally or otherwise Every man who belongs to it lives here and none ot them ever played on an eastern or Canadian court The courts were not opened for the season
