Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Kirjath-Jearim (meaning city of woods) received its modern name (Abu Ghosh from Abu Gausc) "The Father of Gaush" who was a famous robber chief. The town is about twelve miles from Jerusalem along the Jaffa road. There is very little doubt but that Abu Gaush is the site of Kirjath-Jearim. Its identification due to Dr. Robinson has met with general acceptance. Kirjath-Jearim is frequently mentioned in the Bible. It was assigned to Judah by Joshua. It was a city of the Sibeonites, but of more biblical interest than all else is the fat that here in the house of Abinadab, who was of Levitical family, rested the ark for 20 years after it was brought up from Beth Shemesh. And here it remained until David brought it up to Jerusalem."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Tasmania, together with the five states of Australia, forms what is called the Commonwealth of Australia. It is a heart-shaped island, with its top less than two hundred miles from Australia and its point toward the Pole. It is considered as the Switzerland of the southern Pacific, and one of the most healthful and beautiful lands of the globe. Hobart, the capital and largest city on the island, is twenty-five hundred miles below the Equator, with nothing by ocean between it and the frozen lands of the Antarctic. It lies on a fine harbor in a nest of hills on the banks of the Derwent and has beautiful Mount Wellington for a background."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Auckland is the largest city of New Zealand. It lies on an isthmus at the foot of Mount Eden, which is six hundred feet high; it is not far from the mouth of the Waikato River, the chief stream of the archipelago. It is a great business city and port of call. It is the seat of the University, and has a fine museum, rich in Maori remains. The Public Library includes the valuable library of Sir George Grey. The surround bills are old volcanoes with fine craters, such as Mount Eden; the most recent in eruption was probably Rangitoto on an island in the gulf."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Just opposite the Golden Gate across the Valley of Jehoshapat is the Garden of Gethsemane. Two places are claimed as the site of Gethsemane: one by the Latins, and one by the Greeks. It is genuine satisfaction to look upon the Mount of Olives, after trying to locate so many places of uncertain traditions. Of its authenticity there can be no doubt. No other part of Palestine is hallowed by so many memories of Jesus as this hill. He sought its olive groves for retirement and prayer, and there uttered words now familiar to millions of our race; it was from Olivet that he gazed tenderly upon Jerusalem and wept over it (Luke 19:41) and on a portion of this hill "over against Bethany" he gave to his disciples the benediction and parted from them."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "This view taken from the bell tower of the German Church of the Redeemer, looks due east toward the Mount of Olives. While the Biblical expression is "Go up to Jerusalem," and Jerusalem is on a high elevation, it is not the highest in the vicinity. The mount of Olives overlooks Jerusalem being 250 feet higher than the Temple area, or 126 feet above Mount Zion."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "The city of Beyrout was formerly called Berytus. It was named after Julia Augusta Felix Berytus, the daughter Emperor Augustus. It has about 120,000 inhabitants 38 Christian churches. The Christian element is growing stronger every year. Being the most important city on the Syrian coast of the Mediterranean, it is quite natural that it should become the center of missionary work."
Image Description from historic lecture booklet: "Wellington, the capital of New Zealand, is one of the stormiest towns south of the Equator. It is situated at the lower end of Cook Strait, which is so windy that it has been called the Windpipe of the Pacific. Were it not for the excellent harbor, ships could not land and even as it is, great wooden docks have been built to protect them. Wellington has good streets, fine public buildings, excellent stores, and comfortable houses. It is here that Parliament meets, and here live the chief officials of the country. New Zealand is a British colony, and as such it has a governor appointed by the Kind of England. The governor however, has not much power; the people make their own laws and elect those who execute them. In New Zealand every one votes, women as well as men. The telegraphs and railroads belong to the government, which does everything it can to help the people."
