The Egyyttan Desor.
The moment we leave the banks of
the Nile, we enter a world entirely
strange and new-a waterless land,
without rivers, creeks, rivulets, or
springs; nothing but scanty and more
or less brackish wells, at long inter.
vals; and ih the mountainous regions,
same natural rocky reservoirs, where
the rare rain water collects In the
brief and uncertain rainy season
When the writer crossed the Eastern
Desert in the fall of 1873, thero had
been no rain for three years; so tha
the first thing to be provided in start
ing was a supply of water sufilcient to
lAss from the Nile to the first well,and
then from each well to the next. in
carrying the water, the natives em
ploy exclusively goat and -o' skins.
When a goat Is killed, they cut off his
head and legs at the hooks and knees
and after splitting the skin a short
way down his breast, turn him out of
his jacket by pulling it off like a stock.
ing. After the hide is cured, the legs
are tightly tied up, leavlug only the
neck open; and thus a large bottle is
formed capable of holding fron six to
tU n gallons according to the size of the
d funot goat. These water-sklas,
called giriehs, after a few days' use,
keep the water very sweet. In the ex
cessive heat of the desert, however,
they lose a great quantity of their con
tents by evaporation. Military trains
in addition, are supplied with flatten
ed sine barrels, whose sh1ap0 is adapted
for hanging to the pack-saddles. These
have screw stoppers, which preventi
111 leakage and evaporation. The wa=
ter carried in the gs. behs in the sun
gets quite warm, and that in the zin
barrels almost bolls. As soon, there
fore, as the traveler gets to camp, v
ptl tion of water is poured out into
open skins and hung on tripods in the
shade; then, in the course of half at
hour it becomes drinkable, and by
midnight Is as cold as fresh spring
As a consequence, water in the des
ert is a very preolous possession; foi
should the traveler find that the wel

land, therefore, even the pious Aral
abstains from his religious ablution
before prayer, his law permitting bin
in such a case to wash his hands an(I
feet with sand. As a rule, the waLe.
found in the scattered wells is very bad
The first thing on arriving at a wel
is to taste its water, a nd every on(
takes a sip, rolling it in his mouth anm

This dauthonia Is very prevalent on
exhausted soils, where no nutritioui

material of which to manufatu re nit

How To MAKE A POULTIox.-Dr.
Brunton gives the following useful
hints on this subject: Tho common
practce of making poult!ces by mix
Ing linseed meal with hot water and
applying it directly to the skin is
quite wrong. beoruse if we do not
wish to burn the patient we must wait
until a great portion of the heat has
been lost. The prope' method is to
make a flannel bag, the size of the
poultice required, to fill this with the
linseed poultice, as hot as it can pos
sible be made, and put between this
and the skin a second flannel, so there
shall be at least two thicknesses of
flannel between the skin and the poul
tice itself. Above the poultice should
be placed more flannel, or a piece of
cotton wool, to prevent it from get
ting cold. By this method we are
able to apply the linseed meal boiling
iot, witliout burning the pailont, and
the heat, gradually diffusing through
the flannel, alords a grateful sense of
reliet, which cannot be obtained by
other means. There are few ways in
whieh such marked relief is given to
abdominal pain, as by the application
of a poultice fin this mannor.
