Palestine. "If you want my produce"

on the old conservative lines but to
the energetic exporter he gives prom-

and "worked" skilfully.
Kcypt always haa been and still la
a purely agricultural country. Her

the ancient days under the guidance
of Joseph be made the first corner In

From 1M2 to HS7 nine commercial
