THE UREEN FLAI4 OFTIIE PROPHET.
A I'alvereal MwMmeae—lts OHfta~Ai Km
blew m f Kxtermlaallea.
Sinoo tho conuiientvoitMit of the war
between Uitaaia and Turkey, the world
haa several times lieeti startled by the
Announcement that tha " Flag of Uie
Prophet " WAN about to be unfurled in
the atreeta of Stamboul. Hnch an event,
if it ahonld happen (which may heaven
avert), would proclaim a crusade in
which all true Muaaiilmaue would le
Nuuid U> take an active part, atid to
tight against Christianity IU every part
of the world. They may be ui ludia,
Arabia, Kgypt, or wherever elae their
scattered race ha* fouud a hotue ; the
raining of the green standard i* a call
i which mute may dtaotay without, a* the
Koran lay* it down, aacrifieiug all hia
topee of paradiae.
This fearful ap|>eal to all the worst
passion# of the Faaterurace# hang* like#
incnmi'over the Moliamiuedau world; and
if the word was ouee uttered and the dread
ed dag uufurled, there ia no telling to what
sanguinary oxccaaca it migtit lead au en
thuaiaattc and half-aavage people, It
mav lie of internet to our reador* if,
, uuder theae circumstances, we endeavor
to make them acquainted with the origin
aud history of a tanner which haa uut
i aeeu the light of day since the Kmpree*
Catharine of Kusaia attempted to rein
state Chiathuiitr in the Ottv of the Sul
tans, and which once unfurled would set
j a whole world uhlaxe.
Thcro have IHWUI many flag* or siguala
ussl by varioua nations at different
crises iu their history to incite the peo
ple U> Avattlc mi tahalf of rvligtoua, djr
uaatnv# and nloait; hut none haa attained
to tho fearful uotoriety which aujwrtaius
to the terrible Flag of the Prophet ;
which ia really a tanner of hlood, for it
dispels tlie idea of mercy from the minds
ami hearth of it# hdloweni, aud given no
quarter to man, woman or child.
Iu France the " oridamme " or goldeu
sun upon a field of crimson aijniifitwl
"uo quarter !" but tliia tvelebrato Flag
of the lTviptat mean* infinitely more
than this. It is a summons to au anti-
Christian crusade, a challenge of every
believer in the Prophet to arm* ; a war-
M glial, iu fact, wliioh, like the Fiery
Cross of Hivotlaud, would flash it* dread
command through the dotuain of Ulam.
The prophet himaelf predicted that
oue day, wlieu his followerw should num
ber 100,000,000 —which thev do now,
with 20,000,000 more added to it—liis
flag should flv against the advaucmg
power of tho northern races aud the
Korau or klohammtwhui Bible says that
when its silken folds are flung forth
" tho earth will shake, tho mountains
molt luto dust, tho seas Diane uj> iu Are,
and the children's hair grow white with
anguish." This language is of course
metaphorical ; but it is easy to conceive,
by the light of very recent history, that
some such catastrophe might Lake plate,
as the displaying of this terrible sviul-ol
would raise a frenzy of fanaticism in the
breasts of the Mohammedan race all over
The origin of the unugni* is a curious
one. Mohammed gazing out upon a
vaat prospect of held, said : " Nature is
greeu, and green shall lie my emblem,
for it is everlasting and universal."
In course of time, however, it lost that
innooent significance ; and amid hia
visions the great dreamer saw the (1 recti
Flag floating as a sign that all true be
lievers ahould take up their arms and
march against the infidel ; iu fact, the
green turban was the eacred head-dree*
of the pilgrim or perfected Islamite who
hail gone to Mecca ; and hence the aaniv
titv of this formidable standard.
\Yheu once unfurldl, it summons all
Islam by an adjuration from the Konui
that the sword is tbe solitary emblem
and instrument of faith, independence
and patriotism ; that armies, not priests,
make converts ; and that sharpened steel
is the " true key to heaven." Upon that
fearful ensign are inserted the words
which are supposed to have been written
at Mecca itself—namely; "All who
draw it (the sword) will be rewarded
with temporal advantage# ; every drop
shed of their blood, every peril and hard
ship endured by them, will lie registered
on high as more meritorious than either
fasting or praying. If they fall in battle,
their sins will be at ouce blotted out,
and they will be transported to paradise.
But for the first heaven are renrrvod
those of the faithful who die within
tight of the Green Flag of the Prophet."
Then follow the terrible and all-signifi
cant words, the fearful war-cry against
God and man : " Then may no man give
Or expect merry !*
This is the outburst of harbariam with
which the world is threatened in this
year of grace 1877; and the reader can
not do otherwiae than mark the cunning
nature of the portentous words inscribed
on the prophet's banner. What would
uot most men do, civilized or savage,
for " temjxjral advantages?" While to
the Eastern people fasting and praying
are looked upon as of so meritorious a
nature, that to find something else
which, in the eyes of Allah, would be
deemed of greater value still, would be
a desideratum which none would fail to
grasp, bv any means whatever, if it
came within their reach. But Moham
med's wonderful knowledge of human
nature, and more especially of Eastern
human nature, is shown in his picture
of paradise as prepared for the faithful
who fall in hgttle ; while his declaration
that the highest heaven in this so-called
paradise will lie reserved for those who
die within tight of the Green Flag, is s
masterpiece of policy nueqnaled in the
annals of mankind.
The standard itself is not u very hand
some one, and is surpassed both in value
and appearance by many of the banners
which belong to the various lieneflt So
cieties and other mutual associations of
men in this country. It is of green silk,
with a large crescent on the top of the
staff, from which is suspended a long
plnme of horse-hair (said to have been
the tail of the Prophet's favorite Arab
steed), while the broad folds of the flag
exhibit the crescent and the quotations

Sheep Browsing above the Clouds.
Probably the largest and highest nick
in the known world is the South Dome
of Yosemite. Standing at the fork of
the upper valley, it rears itself, a solid
rocky reef, 6,000 feet above the ground.
A more powerful hand tbau that of a
Titan has cut away the eastern half,
leaving a sheer precipice over a mile in
height. No man ever trod the top of
this dome until last year. Former visi
tors gazed in wonder at the spikes driven
into the rock by hardy spirits, who had
repeatedly endeavored* to scale it The
shreds of rope dangling in the wind told
the story of their failure. Last year,
however, after thousands of dollars were
spent, several persons found their way
to the top ot the dome, and this summer
two sheep were discovered browsing on
the hitherto inaccessible peak. Mrs. A.
J. Murphy, wife of a late hotel proprie
tor in the valley, writes to a lady in New
York as foil own:
John Anderson is building stairs np to
the top of the South -Dome. Yon osn
go np now by holding onto i rope, but
it iB quite a tiresome trip A few ladies
in the valley have made the ascent, and
lam sorry I did not attempt it. lint I
am one <>T the few who have seen the
son rise on the top of Cloud's Rest, and
its glory will never fade from my
Strange to say, two sheep found their
way to the top of the South Dome this
summer, a dam aud her lamb. How
they ever got there is more tbao any one
oan tell. They found bunoh grass and
shoots to eat, but no water—only the
dew that fell on the dome at night.
Anderson was going to oarry them Up
some water when I left.
There are those indeed, whom the
world calls vain, who are not so. There
is a desire in some men to have their
real characters known, and therefore
they speak for themselves, and with
more than with perfect justice. Vanity
and a spirt so sensitive as to fear lest
merit or good feelings should be neg
lected, are two different things.

through Uie city into Uie darkened

crashed in windows, aud then by its in
creasing volume, broke down tbe tlnuay
barriers of doora like reed stems in the
£th of a cyclone. Like guowea aud
rk water spirits, struggling men ami
shrieking women were seen moving on
housetops, while Uie steady fall of the
oara from the succoring boata fell U|HIU
tbe midnight air. Boats enough could
not be gotten together to do what was
necessary. Sturdy fathers could le seen
moving cautioualy through the water,
bearing their little ones oil their shoul
ders ; people crawled to their third
floors, and aa thev saw the water climb
ing upward called out for boata to take
them off. Homes and wagons, which
were first in demand, were now set aside
for skiffs and barges. At one o'clock the
moon rose Ita light, feeble though H
waa, came providentially. The cries for
lamps aud candles were heard now.
Boats plowed the streets weighted down
with Uie workuigtuau'a moat precious
cargo, hia wife and little ones. Aa they
were aafdly landed at the foot of the
hilla the cry of mothera calling to their
litUe ones to keep together waa heard,
and, casting one lingering aud look on
the watery waves where once were happy
homes, they moved off to give standing
ground for other boaUoadn of the
homeless. The men proved faithful and
worked with a will. Then the river r.aie
higher and higher, and the roar became
like Niagara iu ita fnry.

bridges and masses of timber a wept

Nothing stayed the progress of Uie
destructive flood. A single timber fell
from a bridge a mile up the stream. It
gathered strength and furv as it went
on and tore up a small outhouse on tlie
river bank, and clinging dose to this,
gathered timbers as it moved, when the
whol* nines waa hurled against the roofs
of the houses in ita truck It weui on
down the stream, gathering strength and
being on the swift curreut a vary animate
engine of tern rand annihilation. As it
tore down Uie James River, crnshuig
everything before it, this confused mass
of timbers looked in the ghostly light of
the moon like a liviug monster, thugiug
huge arms in fierce contortions where
the river current waa not broken. Such
was tbe sight in Rockets.

with household goods. In all this pic

From out the aeama or fluaurea !n the

ia not mentioned, aa we believe, iu any

The oivurretioe ot the earthquake, with

that wmie part of the building had fullcn. !
The United Stale# military bend quarter#
and tlie tlrand Central Hotel lost also, j
in a few second*, most of their ooragMmta.
The earthquake was felt throughout the <
State. The court-house at North Platte
waa injured, and the walls of the school- I
house of tbe place an shaken that the
frightened children left the building.
The walla of a court-house in Columbus
were cracked iu uiue place*. The court
house at l'lattsmouth waa also slightly
damaged ; the two upper atones of the
high school, a four-story brick, were
cracked, and some children were injured 1
wlule fleeing from the building. The
children of a school in I'era ran ont of j
the building in gnat alarm. Two dis- ,
tinct shocks of earthquake were felt at
Jilair; giasla carelesaly placed on store ,
shelve* were tumbled upon the floor,
but no bnildinga were damaged. At

marly a minute; buildings were violent

breath of air stirring, the window*
shook and rattled aa if a gale of wind
was blowing outsida. Tbe county offi
cers at work in tlie second story of the
Bute block, a large building of brick and

merchants left their st<#e.
In Sioux City, lowa, there were two
earthquake waves, the second l>eing the .
most powerful ami immediately allow

vibration lasting forty-flveseeond*. In the
Court house the district court was in

changed, and apparently everything waa
nlKrtit to tnmble into ruin when the
court, jury, and spectators rushed to tlie j
street bareheaded and greatly excited.
A large congregation la Bt, Mary's 1
Catholic Church, present to witness eon- j
Urination ceremonies, sprang to their
feet in alarm, and would have rushed I
madly from the building but for the re
assuring wurds of the priest. BeveraJ (

jumping from their seat* in the choir, to
the floor, a distance of twelve feet. The
scholar* and teacher* in the High School

fled iut't tlie street. Fortunately no one
was injnred, although several <4 the
scholars leaped into the street from the
