Transcript WADY BEIT HAN IN A. 203 beneath. The open ground is covered with olive yards and vineyards rising in terraces on either side of the white torrent bed, while near Kolonia is a shady garden, the resort of the Jerusalem citizens in the summer. Wady Beit Hanina, as this valley is generally called—although like most of the ravines in Palestine it takes in succession the name of each village it passes—is one of the main drains of the country. It has its head not far from Gibeon, north of Jerusalem, and thence runs south-west, deepening rapidly as it approaches Kolonia, where it becomes wider until passing 'Ain Karim. Trending west it runs south of Soba and becomes a formidable gorge, taking the name of Wady Ism'ain from a traditionary chieftain of the locality. The course after passing 'Ain Karim is very tortuous, and the steep hills on either side are thickly clothed with copse. Hermits' caves occur in the cliffs, and the ruin of'Armah, probably representing Kirjath Jearim, stands among the thickets on the southern brink. As ^ MOSQUE OF THE FOUNTAIN, 'AIN kArIM. Peasant-women washing clothes by beating them on blocks the spurs break down suddenly on the west, the gorge of stone.
