Transcript THE DEAD SEA. [55 immediate shores are barren; but wherever fresh water approaches it there are nooks of surpassing loveliness and verdure. Such i^g .., are Engedi, the Safieh, the mouths of the Callirrhoe and .-r-. the Arnon, and other favoured spots, 1!^^ : where the fronds of the palm-tree almost lave its brine; and on all sides the cliffs and mountains between which it lies buried are rich in every hue save green. Dead Sea is Greek was the Salt Sea, to the Arab it is the Bahr Lilt, " Sea of Lot." In one respect it is a lake without parallel in the world, the deepest depression on the earth's surface, being no less than one thousand three hundred feet below the level of the ocean. It is the lower extremity of a deep fissure or rent which runs down from the foot of Hermon, a sort of continuation of the Bukaa, or cleft, which at a higher altitude divides the Lebanon range from the Anti-Libanus, or Hermon. This deep chasm is drained by the Jordan, which leaps full grown at birth from one of the largest springs in the world, under Banias, the ancient Caesarea Philippi. It makes a pause at Huleh, the old waters of Merom, feeding first an impenetrable papyrus swamp, 1 HERMITS' CAVES IN THE CLIFFS OF THE KEDRON.
