Write for particulars Tibetan Houses In Robber-Infested Bad Lands. (Prepared by the National Qcogruphlc So ciety, Washington, D. C.) Few countries are more isolated than Tibet with the huge bulk of China hemming it in on the enst, the world's grentest rampant of moun tains to the south and west, and vast desert expanse to the north. Behind these bulwarks Tibet lias existed for centuries, inhospitable to the knock ing of modern ideas; nnd it is todny, therefore, In institutions nnd customs, ono of the most primitive of the larg er contlucntal countries which have any semblance of governmental ma chinery. Buddhism seems to have been the only ono of the great forces molding the outside world which made itself felt behind Tibet's towering mountains; and even that force, hav ing onco gained success, has been al most swallowed up in the devil wor ship which is the highest religion Unit tho Tlbetnns themselves have evolved. Until a few years ago tho West knew practically nothing of Tibet ex cept the rather doubtful information brought to .the outside world by a few adventurous travelers of the middle ages. Explorer afcr explorer dur ing the pnst century was turned buck with but a fleeting glimpse of the edge of the unknown lnnd, usually In the sparsely settled regions of tho north. t4,, But though much of Tibet is un known, civilization has set a few out posts In the eastern edge of the coun try close to the Chlneso border, nnd so has come to know "provincial Ti bet" fairly well. Tho valley of the Yangtze, where that greatest of Chi nese rivers flows almost due south at the eastern end of tho lllninlayas, forms tho southern portion of the bor der between China proper and Tibet. Theoretically Tibet is a vassal state of China, but actually since the Chinese revolution Tibet has kept all Chinese officials out and has swum free under her ruling priests. Even the region on tho China side of the Ynngtze is more Tibetan than Chinese. This border region, which Is better known to the outside world than any other part of Tibet, is a country of high plnteaus and muntnins. The prin cipal city of the region, Bntnng, Is ono of the lowest points, yet Its alti tude is 9,000 feet above sea level, nearly twice that of Denver. Much of the .surrounding plnteau Is 12,000 to 15,000 feet high. From this great upland rise numerous peaks 20,000 feet and more In height. Tremendous Mountain Panorama. Tho view from the summits of some of the passes that must be traversed in traveling nbout this marvelously rugged country can hardly be sur passed anywhere In the world. Tho "panorama for hundreds of miles on a cleat day is one of countless high peaks Interspersed with greater snowy ainsses that exceed In height the top nost plnnncles of all other continents. Below timber line are some line for ests, nnd tho Alplnc-llke llowers of .ho short summer are exceedingly beautiful. Here und there among the mountnlns uro clear, sparkling lakes, ihclr waters so cold that In most of them flsh cannot live. Many of the Tibetans nre nomads, (ending Hocks of sheep and yal? on tho uplands, and living in black, yak hair tents. In those valleys which aro low enough to permit the mutur lng of grnln, other Tibetan? practice n rude sort of agriculture. In spite of the cold winters the tent is ihe yenr-around homo of the no mads, and they seldom oven enter u house. As the snow melts on tho lower slopes of the mountains in the spring, they follow their herds up ward from the valleys In Its train, until in mid-summer they uro living far up in the highlands and on the Bides of the peaks. When winter be gins to set In they mnke the reverse Journey, going down to the valloyH only as fast as the descending snow line drives them. The farmers of the lower valleys 11 re In substantial houses of mud with flnt roofs. These dwellings ura not unlike the adobe houses of Mex ico, but are decidedly more substan tial, being constructed by tho beat ing of mud Into thick walls between forms of timber. The farmers have few animals but utilize tho yuk for plowing, the an lmals being brought down from the highlands at the proper time. Wood en plows with a single handle aro used. Tho living quarters In the house of tho vnlley folk usually consist of n single lurge room, In which all work, Including the cooking, is done, and where tho members of the family eat and sleep. Few Comforts in the Home. The comforts in sucli homes arc very meager. In few establishments is there even the semblance of a bed. In the ordinary houses "going to bed" means merely loosening the girdle, opening the sheepskin garment, and curling up on the floor with the ieet toward the stove, which Is an essen tial feature of all habitations in this high, cold country. The stove is built of mud, with a fireplace below and u hole In the top into which pots may be set for cook ing. It is usually found on one side of the living room, and the members of the family, on retiring for tho night, range themselves in a fart shaped group about it. Families possessing domestic anl mnls share their houses with them. In two-storied houses the lower floor is tho stable, and through It the living quarters are reached. In some one storied houses the front portion Is given up to the animals, while tho family lives in the rear. The two principal foods of the Tl bctans, "tsamba" and "butter tea" seem to n westerner neither appetiz lug nor nourishing, but In splto of a cheerless climate the mountaineers manage to keep sturdy on them Tsamba Is made by parching bnrley and then grinding it into u sort of emergency ration, which on mixture with moisture Is ready to eat. When Tibetans are on journeys or are wan dcring nbout with their flocks and herds, they carry tsamba in small leather bags Inside their coats, thus always having nt hand the materials for u hearty meal. In preparing the other principal ar ticle of their diet the Tibetans first make a strong liquid by boiling the coarso Chinese tea which they prize most highly. The concoction is strained Into a churn and to it aro added a lump of butter, more or less stnle, and u handful of snlt. The queer mixture Is then churned Into an emulsion. Tho resulting liquid Is neither tea, soup nor gravy but to an occidental Is a sort of Indifferent mix ture of all of them. Original Condensers of Milk. The Tibetans of this region were probably the original users of con densed milk In the form of dry lumps, for they hnve prepared this article of food for many centuries. Fresh milk Is poured into a churn which Is never washed and the liquid therefore cur dles almost the Instant It conies into contact with the germ-Incrusted walls of the container. It Is then churned und the butter is extracted. After the butter is extracted the milk Is boiled in a largo Iron pot until it reuches tho consistency of thick syrup. It Is then poured out In a thin sheet und allowed to dry, ufter which it is broken Into small pieces and stored, The lumps often become as hard ns stone, and to cat them dry Is out of the question. The nomads solve the problem by substituting tho dry milk for tsamba, soaking It In their butter ten. It thus becomes softened to some extent nnd can be chewed. The marrlnge customs of tho peo ple of Tibet present a peculiar combi nation of monogamy, polygamy, und polynndry tho last particularly char acteristic of the country, though mo nogamy Is actually the prevailing system.
