The Dead sea is one of the most
remarkable phenomena on the earth.
The Bible calls it the Salt sea, or
Sea of tbe Plain, the Greeks tlio
Lake of Asphalt and the Dead sea,
while the Arabs know it as'Bahr
Lut, or Sea of Lot, preserving tho
memory of the tragic catastrophe
which occurred on its shores. Ac
cording to the old traveler Maundrclli
the name Dead sea is derived from
the fact that it moveth not, but is
ever still. A modern traveler says
it is the least dead of anything he
knew. On the day of my visit it
was greatly agitated its high and
angry waves crested with foam. For
other reasons it deserves the title.
Not a shrub grows on its shores.
Not a fish dwells in its brackish
waters. Not a boat floats upon its
surface. Here and there on the
boach lies the ?ead trunk of a tree,
brought down by the Jordan but
thrown up by the unwilling lake.
Irby and Mangles tried to light one
of these pieces of driftwood, but in
vain, oa account of the impregna
tion of sail. Tbe old tradition that
birds could not fly over the water
and live was a mistake. The lake is
the deepest depression on the surface
of our continents, being 1,300 feet
below the Mediterrenan and 600
below the Lake of Galilee. It is
forty-seven miles long and ten wide,
covering three times the area of the
northern lake. Tho water is rntenso
brackish and bitter, containing 26
per cent, of salt, which Dr. Daw
eon says is not common salt but
mostly the phloride aud bromide of
magnesium and calcium. There pre
hot and sulphur springs in the hills
along its eastern aad western shores.
The lake has no outlet, bat receives
the sweet current of the Jordan,
which pours 6,000,000 tons of water
daily into its deadly and insatiate

Look at the past :
When Egypt went down, 3 per
cent of her population owned 97 per
cent- of the wealth. The people
were starved to death.
When Babylon went down 2 per
cent, of the population owned
all the wealth. The people were
starved to death.
When Persia went down, 1 per
cent, of the people owned the land.
When Rome went down. 1,800 men
owned all the known world.
For the past twenty years the
United States has rapidly followed
in the steps of these old nations.
Here are the figures:
la 1850, capitalists owned S7 per
cent of the Nation's wealth.
In 1870, they owned 62 per cent.
