white markings. Many soft colors appear

The brim is very wide all round, but
curves considerably at the left, tho

There is no extreme tilt or poise in
these large hats. In fact, fashion has
decreed more quiet, in the posing of

IX all likelihood it would sound
strange to the ears of most peol>lo
to bo told that tho least
known portion of the earth is tho
old liiblo land of Arabia. It is,
however, true that tho land which
many scholars believe was tho homo
of the Hebrews before they reached
tho pla'n of Shinar, and which at different
times has been the seat of a
great civilization, is now the darkest
part of tho earth, darker even than
any portion of Africa.
An Immense country In size, Arabia
is as large as all of the United States
past of the Mississippi river, or larger
than nil of the countries of Europe
combined with the exception of Russia
and Scandinavia That country is
almost without rivers and tin ti 1 recently
was without railroads. Tho
only ship v 'ilch sr.Ils over the great
desert Is the camel. A journey along
the Red sea coast from Suez to Aden
takes eight days, from the Red sea to
the Persian gulf 40 days, or to follow
about the coast line of the country as
an Arab sometimes does. It Is a journey
of a whole year.
Travelers lmvo frequently penetrnted
(ho desert south of Palestine or
crossed Its northern part fnin Damascus
to llagdnd, but there were but two
or three who succeed In reaching
the city of Mecca and the South
Arabian city of Sana, which was the
home of the queen of Sheba. No
Christian has succeeded in traversing
the land from the north to the south.
Cause of the Desert.
The general impression of the Arabian
desert is a vast sea of sand.
Quite to the contrary the surface of
tho greater part of it is almost as

the western and southern coasts there
are barren, rocky ranges raising their
peaks to tlie height of O.OOft feet, but
most of the Interior Is a level plain of
great fertility It 1* a desert just because
of the lack of irrigation. After
the hard rains of winter vegetation
springs forth, making the dry places
look like (lower gardens. Water may
be found in nearly every part of the
desert by digging to a sufficient depth.
Here and thcro it comes to the surface,
forming an oasis about which a

llweller for the poverty of the parched
platna and sandy wastes, nature lias
provided him with the strange mirage,
which Is visible in nearly every part
of the desert. Many kinds of trees,
lakes, men and figures appear upon
the desert horizon, where the Arabs
know that only desert can exist.
Sometimes the mirage sems so real
that the Arabs who are accustomed
to seeing it daily are deceived by it.
Hospitality to Travelers.
In the desert, especially among tho
tribal encampments, there are inns or
lodging places provided for travelers.
Along tho lonoly pilgrim ronton loading
to the sacred citlog there aro large
khans to protect tho traveler both
from tho heat of the summer and the
rains In wlntor, also from tho roving
bands of thieves. Those aro largo

passing a night in the desert hotel.
The wandering Arabs of every ^n
campment possess a great tent,
where a stranger is always welcome.
It is called the mutif and is like all
other tens excepting in size. Tho
traveler on arriving makes his way to
i it. Stopping before the tent he gives
j his horse to an attendant, sticks his
! long spear into the ground at the tent
entrance and leaving his sandals outside

There are many bands of roving

safe in traveling in the desert. Long

The Arabs are divided Into hun

Livelihood and Religion.
The desert Arab obtains bin living
by camel raising. In the groat conIral
plateau one may find him herding
thousands of camels. He drives
the camels to the larger cities once
a year to be sold to tho merchants
whoso caravans still transport tho
merchandise from one end of the
desert to another.
Though Mohammed was an Arab
and the Arabian city of Mecca Is tho
center of 'he Mohammedan world, tho
desert Arab Is more or less of a
pagan. He calls himself a Mohamnirv
dan. yet he seldom prays or feasts,
or goes upon tho pilgrimage to Mecca
i as a good Moslem should.
