Description lazy horde who generally settle first on the rich soil of the West, men who expect to reap harvests without labor, these places will soon fall back into desert again. "Blessed are they that sow beside all waters, and send forth thither the feet of the ox and the ass."66 I begin to realise now why it is that Palestine seems so barren a country now, and why the Jews deemed it so fertile. With irrigation trees grew and they had magnificent crops. When the enemy overran the land, and the heart of the people failed them, they neglected the water channels, and the hot sun and the strong salts in the soil burnt up the vegetation. So it will be here. I do not suppose now, as I used to do at home, that Palestine was once a country wooded and green as Pennsyl- vania. It must have been like this land, with timber of poor quality growing in the canons, and here and there spots like Lebanon, of whose mighty trees they talked as the Mormons do of the forest on the San Francisco Mountain in Arizona. Sunday Evening. The meeting today was held in the basement of the Tabernacle, as the plastering is dry there. It was intensely warm, as the stoves were both heated, and the room was crowded. I could scarcely keep my gravity when Meeting began, and I saw Will's great brown eyes fix in astonishment on the canvas screens that divided the part of the basement we were in from the rest. They were evidently the scenes of the Mormon theatre, with the reverse sides turned towards us. There were the framework and hinges of the "practicable door," the ground- work daubs of brown and green of a woodland, and the angu- flh Isaiah 32:20. 58
