Transcript MAR SABA. 153 which attempted to accompany him. He might have been, from his manners, a lineal descendant of St. Saba's lion. There was a whole pack of jackals also which regularly came to be fed, and at another corner, by themselves, three foxes. But the most remarkable of their pets are the bronze- winged grakles {Amydrus tris- tratni), peculiar to the Dead Sea basin; elsewhere these birds are the most shy of the denizens of the rocks, but here they perch in flocks, and are fed from the hand, or catch berries as they are thrown up for them in the air, while their rich bell-like notes resound in sweet cadence from cliff to cliff. When we leave the hospitable convent—for hospitable it is to those who are reasonable enough to be content with what the monks can provide — we find ourselves in a region entirely distinct physically from either the plains or the hill country of Palestine. We have descended into the Dead Sea valley, and though over one thousand feet above its surface, yet the Wady Nar, at the foot of Mar Saba, is on the level of the Mediterranean. The air here is hot and close; all the plants are new and strange; the entire flora has changed. 21 vMim ST. SABA'S PALM-TREE.
