The EgyptiaU Deser.
The moment we leave the banks of
the Nile, we enter a world entirely h
a-range knd new-a waterless land, -I
witheta rivers, creeks, rivulets, or n
springs; nothing but scanty and more a
or less brackish wells, at long- inter
vals; and ih the mountainous regions, i
same natural rocky reservoirs, where o
the rare rain water collects in the I
brief and uncertain rainy season.
When the writer crossed the Eastern
Desert in the fall of 1873, there had
been no rain for three years; so that I
the first thing to be provided in start- I
Ing was a supply of water sufficient to
lass from the Nile to the first well,and
then from each well to the next. In I
carrying the water, the natives em- a
ploy exclusively goat and -ok skins. I
When a goat Is killed, they cut off his
head and legs at the hooks and knees;
and after splitting the skin a short I
way down his breast, turn him out of
his jacket by pulling it off like a stock-,
Ing. After the hide is cured, the logs
are tightly tied up, leaving only the
neck open; and thus a large bottle is
formed capable of holding from six to
tn gallons according to the size of the
d funct goat. These water-sklas,
called girtehs, after a few days' use,
keep the water very sweet. In the ex- 1
cessive heat of the desert, however,
they lose a great quantity of their con
tents by evaporation. Military trains,
in addition, are supplied with Ilatten
ed sino barrels, whose slipe is adapted
for hanging to the pack-saddles. These
have screw stoppers, which prevent
t 11 leakage and evaporation. The wfa
ter carried in the ge. behs in the u1n, 1
gets quite warm, and that in the zinc I
barrels almost bolls. As soon, there
fore, as the traveler gets to cmp, a
po~tion of water is poured out into
open skins and hung on tripods Il the
shade; then, In the course of half an
hour It becones drinkable, and by
midnight is as cold as fresh spring
As a consequence, water in the des
ert is a very precious possession; for
should the traveler find that the well
en which he relied has gone dry, It
may mean death to in in one of Its
crueleet forms. Iln that waterless
land, therefore, even tle plous Arab
abstains from his religious ablutIons
before prayer, his law permitting him
in such a case to wash ais hands and
feet with sand. As a rule, the water
found in the scattered wells is very bad.
The first thing on arriving at a well
is to taste its water, a nd every one
takes a sip, rolling it in his mouti aid
testing it, as epicures do rare wines.
Ureat is the joy if it is pronouncel
"sweet water;" but when the guides
say "not good," you know it is a
strong solution of' Epsom salts. The
Arabs divide their deserts into two
-inds. What they call wilderncss,be
ing diversified by valleys or water
sourses, where their flocks can wan
der and find pasture. The second is
the afmour, or desert proper, consist -
ing of' hard gravel, diversified by zones
of deep sands, rocky belts, and rugged
defiles. It is absolutely and entirely
dstitute of all vegotations. Not a tree,
not a bushs,not a blade of grass rclieyes
the eyes, which are painfully affected
by the fierce retiection of the sunlight I
upon the yellow sand. No shade
whatever ls to be found, unless it is
cast by some great rock. 'These at.
inours, generally nine or ten day.s
journey across, are like oceans, wvhich
you may traverse on your four-ftooted<
ship, but where you may not tarry,nd
where caravans cross each other like
vessels on the ocean.
Here is a picture of a desert journey
with its terrible privatious and ex
periences. It, is now Mlay, 1875. The
sun is si ing vertically over our
* heads. We are on tuhe west of' the
Nile, on the dlesolate altmo(urs which
seperate the river from the hardly less
barren plaina of Kordofan. A more
parched, blasted, and blighted coun
try than it is at this period, cannot be
conceived. It, is the end of' the dry
seamon, and half' of the rare wells are
exhausted ; and those which are not,
furninised only a scanty supply of'
brackish water at temperatures of
eighty degrees or more. The dleep~er
the walls, the warmer the water. Theli
mainhos are periectly terrible, and yet
it is worse to halt during the day than
to keep moving; for under the tents
the heat redoubles as in a hothouse,
smaking it impo sible to rr at or* sleep,.
Ttius we imiarch from earlicst diawni
often till night; ior we mus st make the
distance between the wvells before our
water gives out. Ons the busrining santi
the sun beats dlown withs a fieircensess
which cannot be described. Th'ie baur
rol of your guni, the stirrup of your
s..d lie, blister your lhand 811(d your
foot;. The thsermomieter rises to a hun
dred and fifty degrees in the sun; and
in spite of the protetion of your white
helmet, a heavy silk scarf over it; and~
the umbrella you carry, your skin
peels off ini blisters, and your brain
almost boils in your skull.
Things worth Runowhiag.

IOW TO MAKE A PouLTiox.-Dr.
Irunton gives the following useful
ints on this subject: The common
oractiee of making poultices by mix
ng linseed meal with hot water and
pplylng it directly to the skin is
ulte wrong, becaiuse if we do not
vish to burn the patient we must wait
intil a great portion of the heat has
)eon lost. The prope- method is to
nake a flannel bag, the size of the
)Oultiee required, to fill this with the
Inseed poultice, as hot as it can poo
ible be made, aind put between this
rnd the skin a second flannel, so there
liall be at least two thicknesses of
lannol between the skin and the poul
Ace itself. Above the poultice should
me placed more flannel, or a piece of
>otton wool, to prevent it from get
Aing cold. By this method we are
tble to apply tihe linseed meal bolling

Ahe heat, gradually diffusing through
Lihe flannel, affords a grateful sense of
