arc cl ways ready to rob and murder when

The very rnme of tho state Is of quito
modern oritrin and Ls duo to the Persians,
who made a show of coniuerinK tho land

The mountuinous nature of the country
give its defender every udvant.-iyo. It is
hut a succession of ireciiituus tinged,

Which a few determined men can hold

any very larpc force lmosslbIe, and tho
only way In which victory ran eventually
t secured Is by hemming the tribes np on
some mountain top and literally starving
them Into subtnlss'.on.
This style of Nrdcr warfare is no new

SAVED BY A COBRA.
A Tame Snake Lays Down Its Life For
This stKingo story cones from India: A
child a mnro baby had st-uyed some
distance from tho camp toward the jungle,
Thoro under a tire ho foirnd a covcri'd
basket containing a tame cobra of nnustial
size, but being the son of a serpent charm
er ho was not tfrald ni:d. cuddling down
beside it In tho shade, was soon fast asleep.
While he slumljcrcd a wild juugle snake
another cobra camo gliding out of tho
shadows in search of frogs mid mice. At
length in the course of its sinuous quest
it reached the child an intruder in itsdo
mnin, tlxj represcntr.tivc of a hated race
and quite helpless. The horrible creature
reared its head, spread i'.s scaly hood and
cmbted a vindieiWe hii. At the sound
of it tho little bey shrank, even in his
dreams. He stirred uneasily and thrust
out with his ckv.bby hand, striking the
b;iket so sharply i& to dis!mlfro tho cover,
which IhwI not Utn prrierly fastem-d
