Texas saturday january 30. 1909, vol. Xxx. No. 29. Sou Ven ir8 from Palestine. Business. Venture that grew out of a visit there. When the Young people s society of Christian Endeavor hade its Pilgrim age to the holy land a few years ago it included among the company of travellers a Young Man just out of High school whose father was pastor of a Large City Church. It was matter of regret by both father and son that the minister himself could not a accompany the party but the duties of his office prevented this so the Boti determined to see As much As a possible and remember what he saw in order that hib father might in some degree share the pleasures of tile trip. The first and most vivid impression a which the holy find made upon the Young Man writes Edward Williston Rentz in. Youths companion was a sense of its desolation rite stretches of desert its waste places. But after a time he came to ice that his desolation was singularly relieved by the presence of Flowers. ,. He knew something of botany and at. Once became interested in tracing the plants and Flowers mentioned in scripture but nearly every discovery was a Surprise to him. The Flowers were not at All what his fancy had. Pictured them. Reasoning sensibly enough that the plants which had a interested and surprised him would Appeal in the same Way to others he used All the time at his. Disposal gathering Flowers characteristic of Palestine and pressing them. When he returned he had with him a Large and varied collection which he mounted neatly in Little books As Sou he used ail the time at his disposal in gathering plants. Veners for. His friends. He found As he had expected that the the legs a which astonished him astonished his friends also.

By correspondence. He succeeded in securing a further Supply of the pressed Flowers. With the assistance of a 80me pretty Tableaux. Skillful Letterer a Little Boot was prepared in which the Flowers were carefully mounted with allium lated descriptions in old English text and quotations and scripture references. / these were placed on Sale in the rooms of the various religious publishing houses and other booksellers and proved so attractive As to warrant the placing of the Enterprise upon a More definite footing. The Yourg Man has now made three trips to Palestine and has established a new Industry in the land to which the imagination Gfall Christian people so constantly turns. A group of men is there constantly engaged in gathering and preserving the Flowers and. Shipping them to America. And Here another group is steadily employed in mounting them and combining them in the booklets. It has been remarked that whatever May be the Vicissitudes of history and however great Are the changes Whir i time May make in the larger appearance of a country its Flowers remain the same from generation to generation. The remark is True and there is therefore something peculiarly impressive in looking to Day upon the.
