The Desert ot Iahar.
This trail of country so far from be.
Ing a desolate plain of moving sand, as t
populary believed, the fiahara is a cul.
tivated country, fruitful as the Garden
of Eden. Like our "great American
desert," it has been greatley belied.
El Sahr, as the Arabs pronounce It, is
indeed a vast archipelago of oases, off
ering an animated group of towns and
villages. A large belt of fruit trees
surrounds each of these villages, and
the palm, the fig, the date, apricots,
pomegranates, and vines abound in the
utmost profusion. Ascending the Atlas
mountains by a gradual slope to the f
region of high table-lands, we come to
the land of the Mozabites, or Bon
Mozab, and then comes a gradual
descent for three hundred miles to the
vast stretch of treeless country known
- as the great desert. The rivers have
an Inclination of about one foot in four
hundred. Many of the streams are
dry, except after rains, when they
deluge the country. Gun-shots are
fired as soon as the torrents appear ; all I
objects are removed, and soon, with a
terrible noise, the Rood rolls on. The
baharian city stands as if by magic on
the banks of the waters which rise to
the tufts of the palm tree; but a few
days only elapse ere all disappears,
leaving the district rich and fruitful.
The inhabitants are not a migratory
people, and unlike the tent dwellers of
the northern slope, live In substantial
houses with thatched roofs and ceilings
of cane laid upon Joists of oliye wood.
These house generally consits of but
one room, and have no furniture except
mats on the floor and upon the walls
for three or four fiet high. Beds aie
sometimes found, but no ono thinks of
sleeping on them. The walls are white
washed and inscribed with verses from C
the Koran. The inhabitants are made
up of genuine Arabs. and Berbers, or
Kabyles, as the French call th em. .J ews
are found in every oasis, and all very
prosperous and influential, doing much I
of the trading and making up of the
Tne nons,oo1 mas Burst.
In these four words hlie the "promise
and potency" of renewed life and fer
tility this coming year for Western
India; for what the rising of the Nile
Is to Egypt, such 18 the breaking of the
summer monsoon to the Malabar eoaitt
and its adjacent reigons. Ac the Nile
sometimes fails to reach its annual
high-water mark, so the greit. Cloud
gathering of the Indian Ocean occasion
ally disappoints the anxious people of
the peninsula and pases away with in.
sufficient gifts of moisture. It is how
ever, of excellent omen when as in the
present season, the sca-borii vapors
collect thickly and in goo(l timie, and
break with a iast convulsion of the
atmosphere. There Is no longer any
such mystery about this yearly phe
nomenon as prevalled in old days,when
Sinbad navigated the Arabian waters,
or when liippalus the Greek made
bold to spread his sal before the strange
winds which blew so steadfastiy
toward Muzeilis, the "port of spices.'
The southwest monseon ia now as weill
understood by science as the move
ment of a church clock. It the equat
orial region~s of the earth were covere(ld
with wvater the trade winds would( b:ow
steadily right round the globie, follow
ing the suin's coutrse with a northward
deflection from D)ecember to ,June anid
with a south ward slant from J1une to
December. But tihe hot months of
April and May heat the surface of
southern Asia so that the atmosphere
above it expands5 and rises. T1he colder
air from the India O.can thereupon
flows up to supp)ly the vacuum. TIo the
north of the eqjuator the revolution of
the earth lends this cu rrent a westerly
deviation andl tihe result is a long and(
steady stream of wind, wvhiich laden
with the clouds raisedl from tihe wide
Arabian Sea, drives and piles these
water bearing masses in serried ranks
against the Western Ghauts of india,
where, about the beginning of .June,
they gather In a dark canopy, cover-I
ing the sky far andi near. Oni the
Coromandel coast of the peninsula it
is the northeast monsoon whiich ren
ders the same sern ice of the reversed
period of the year for that side of india.
There the life giving clouds are brought
up from the Bay of Bengal to break
ever the Eastern Mouintais aiid re
fresh the fields~ of Orissai and Madras.
'.'he snows of Ilimalaya ,perioidienily ill
lang the channels of the Ganges and
the Brahamapootra, complete the water
supp;y ot the Indiani continent, which
would be a dlesert like the Sahara were

in the law ?filee of John S. Spencer,
at Canandaigua, New York, in 1831-32,
were four young law students, to for
-tune and to fame unknown. Under tile
careful guidance of Mr. Spencer they
wvere duly admitted to the b,ur in 1831,
and one of them at on1ce struck out for
thie WVest, locating at, Cleveland. IIere
lie stuck fast, and whiile waiting tihe
expiration 01 tile six mionths prescribed
by the Ohio laws before a citizen of
another State can he0 admntted to plrae
tice in her courts, hue was surprised by
a call from his fellow students. They
we re looking for places to hang out
their shilnles. "Well one of you1 can
atay here with me; another of you can
go further to the little French villaige
called Ddtroit, andi the other Can push81
on to a new place they call Chiengo,
on the site of old Fort Dearborn."
After a little consultation this plan
wais agreed on. Th'le one who wenit to
the "little French viilage'' was George
C. Bates; lhe who went further on was
Stephen A. Douglass, who went to
Springfield Instead of Chicago, making
a miistake, while lie who remained inl
Cleveland was Henry B. Payne.

Tus COLD BATH'r -Although the
I daily cold bath is healthful and reviv

a on as a cleansing agent. A man may a
bathe daily and use his towel even ti
, roughly, but remain as dirty to all a
-practica Intento as though he esebhewed tj
cleanliness; indeed, the physical evil of tj
dirt Is more likely to ensue, because if 0
k wholly negleoted the skin would cast b
off the refuse matter by periodical per- n

washings In water of at least equal a
tenperature with the skin, and soap, i
can Insure a free and healthy surface. 1

is too much the practice to neglect the tj
