Transcript EXTINCT CRATERS. 3°3 f 1 salt extends south, and the traveller will cross it on the direct road from Tiberias to \\ nt Tabor. Farther north, in the region of Safed, the same or other great streams appear a in and at El Jish, which corresponds to Gischala, a city famous in the Jewish wars with the Romans, there is a vast birket or pool which occupies the mouth of an extinct crater, and two other extinct craters exist in the same vicinity. Volcanic influence is noticeable all about the Sea of Galilee, particularly on the east side, from which point the lava formation extends for at least one hundred miles eastward and includes the entire Bashan plain. What are known as the Druze or Hauran Mountains are full of extinct craters, and the region now called the Lejah, corresponding to the Argob of the Old Testament, is a lava bed of great extent and interest. When the fact is considered that vast rivers and fields of once-molten stone can be traced in different parts of Palestine, the frequent and sometimes terrible earthquakes to which the country is subject can no longer be a matter of surprise. That which took place in 1837 has already been noticed. More than once they are referred to in the Bible ; and among the memorable ones that have occurred since the time of Christ, that in the reign of the Emperor Justinian may be mentioned, which levelled to the ground the beautiful city of Beirut, and in the more northern city of Antioch destroyed two hundred and fifty thousand lives. HOT BATHS OF TIBERIAS (HUMMAM TUBARiYEH). With the town of Tiberias and Khan Minyeh in the distance. The interior of the public bath is shown, with its pierced dome and marble pavement.
