KiMl Street Scene In (Prepared by the National Oeographlo So ciety, Washington, D. C.) Nepal, In which Is sltuuted much of Mt. Everest, the world's highest pin nacle, which Is now t being attacked ty an elaborately equipped British clenttflc expedition, Is the true "her mit kingdom" of toduy. The govern ment purposely keeps the roads which leud from ndlu to Napul In bud con dition, and travelers are admitted to but one Binull valley, und then only for special reasons upon a difficulty obtained permit. This kingdom which holds itself so aloof from the world Is u narrow strip of country about 100 miles wide and 500 miles long, extending lor nearly a third of the distance between Indlu and Tibet along the sky-plerclng Ulmalayas. On the south It Includes a very narrow strip of plains country, but oredomlnantly It is a mountain ous region. In fact, its possession of Mt. Everest und some of the other of the highest mountains In the world Klvo It claim, In one sense at least, .to ht the most mountainous or countries The Nepalese are a lighting people, have an excellent urmy and organize tlou, und ure fond of show, both in military display and In their religious festivals. The latter are very numer ous, and in fact seem to be lntennln able. The women tuke u prominent nart In most of them Some of the seml-mllltnry pugeants end In the massacre of hundreds of buffaloes. In one such ceremony, known as the blessing of the colors, the commander In chief dips his hands In a bowl of blood und clasps each banner In turn, thus Imprinting on nni, tim murk of bloody hands. The scene Is somewhat revolting, but prob ably bus Us use In keeping up n mur- tlul spirit in the urmy. Voluminous Dresses of Women The Nepuleso women wear yards unou yards sometimes as muny as a of flno muslin plaited to form a huge fan-shnped bunch in front, tho back being quite tight, wnen hwiv of runk drives lu her barouche she completely fills the carriage with hoi- voluminous skirt of urllllunt hue Above the skirt a vivid little tight-fitting Jacket, usually of velvet, Is worn; the hulr Is dressed in u pecullur knot lu front, above the forehead, und fas- 8)eci consideration.

Every lmug Inuble shade Is used purph Pde blue, green, carmine, orange, white, yellow, turquoise, und deep red and the effect Is wonderful. At the time of state ceremonies the streets uro filled with processions of elephunts In gorgeous trappings, horses and ponies, brilliant mllltury uniforms, und the usunl crowd of good-nntured, pleasure-loving people, the whole against the background of the old temples and natural surround ings making a wonderful spectucle. The Journey Into Nepnl Is not un easy one. At first there Is a track through the forest, but us soon us the outer hills are rcuched the road loses Itself In the bed of n stream, up which the bearers pick their way with diffi culty over and among great boulders. The official road finally goes over the very rough truck across the Chandra girl puss und down the almost Im passable road on the other side Into the Nepal valley. The lust portion of the descent Is down a long stnir cuse of roughly-placed blocks of stone, and It Is marvelous how the laden men and ponies keep their footing on It. In the Nepal Valley. Prom the foot of tho puss un excel lent cnrrlnge road Into the town of Khatmnndu runs through the valley teeming with people, towns, palaces, temples, und Innumerable shrines There are miles of such good carriage roads within the valley, mostly con structed In Jung Bahadur's time, und carriages and pnlrs, nnd occasionally a four-ln-hund nre constantly used by the palace people. In this valley, where tho shrines alono are suld to number more thun 2,700, the buildings present an araass- at ' T - ' w . hx4J Patan, Nepal. lng diversity of form, derived from muny sources Egyptian, us shown in the typical form of the windows und doorwnys finely adapted to local tra ditions; Persian, Babylonlnn, Indo Aryan, and even Nestorlun In some of the designs. die Inhabitants of Nepal are collec tively known as "Dwellers In the Hills," und are divided Into innumer able castes. The Gurkhas ure now the dominant race. Among the Gurkhas there ure 21 castes und In addition to these, there ure among the Newnrs, or conquered people, 41 custcs und sub castes. The most striking buildings of Ne pal's comparatively modem capital, Khntmandu, are, perhaps, those com posing the Durbar puluce, with its muny quadrangles und pagoda-shaped roofs, full of chambers und courts with small communicating doors eas ily closed, which enuble the Inhabi tants to defend themselves in case of polltlcul disturbunces, which are not infrequent Some of the windows urn very fine und there are some striking bits of wood curving. Patan, the Old Capital. Patan wus tho old Newur capital, where Buddhism was the accepted re ligion of the country before tho In vasion of the Gurkhas. Although tho lurgest town In Nepal, It is a quiet, sleepy place, much of it falling Into mind, hut Htlll most picturesque. It stands in tho center of the beautiful valley, against a background of green mountains und snowy peuks a net work of narrow, twisting little streets packed full of shrines, temples, und pagodas, many of them deserted and falling into ruins, but still with ex quislto bits of carving and wonderful doorwnys of ull shapes und sizes and wonderful designs. Many of Patan's buildings nre dee onited with sheets of embossed copper gilt, und everywhere the shrines nre gunrded by pairs of fearsome unlmals of enormous size. Curved stone pll lnrs are surmounted by uulmuls, birds, or fish modeled In metal; bells of nil sizes are everywhere, und huge lotus thrones In brouzo hold bronze Thun der-Bolts or Dorgls. The art of the Nepalese, or, properly sneaking, the Nowurs. Is worthy of : Btnte of perfection, und their Influence hns extended through these hills Into Slkklm, Bhutan, and Tibet. Indian Influence has penetrated from the south with the udvance of Buddhism and hus spread through the hills, along tho Brnhmuputru valley, to Lhasa, tho capital of Tibet. On the other bund, Chinese influence Is nlso strong and there has been Intercourse with that country for many centuries. Beautiful Wood Carving. Nepuleso wood curving Is extraordi narily beautiful and ornate. Every scrap of wood Is curved In some man ner; tho struts upholding the eaves of shrines represent satyrs und dragons, while windows und doors are exam ples of the most elaborate and minute workmanship of every conceivable de sign. The verandas and overhanging bulconles arc highly ornamented und the work on some of the plllurs Is very bold und striking. In weaving, the natives are de ficient, the only cloth made be ing n courso cotton of no artistic value. The feudal system, which has pre vailed among these hills for muny yenrs, Is In a measure responsible for much of the artistic work of the na tives, for it enables a man to put his whole energy Into his work. He has no cure about food or housing; It Is to his master's and his own advuntugo to produce tho most artistic work pos sible. Nepal maintains a wcll-drlltcd and efficient urmy of about 82,000 Infantry nnd 2,500 nrtlllery, with about 100 serviceable and 150 unserviceable guns.
