Mrs. Theodore Bent Has Traveled
in Strange Lands.
Strange Cnitomi In \byssiiiia— In
terestins Visits in Southern
Arabia and Palestine.
Mrs. Theodore Bent Is one of the most
prominent members of that little band of
eminent ladies who, fearing nothing,
spend the greater portion of their time
exploring uncivilized lands in the pursuit
of knowledge. For years now, Mrs. Bent
has been engaged In travel. In the com
pany of her distinguished husband she
risked her life a hundred times, and since
his death she has been no less active.
Some few weeks ago I had the pleasure
of spending an hour with Mrs. Bent. To
my great regret I found her, for once,
hors dv combat. She had just returned
from Palestine, where she had the mis
fortune to have her leg broken by her
horse falling on her.
Mrs. Bent ha 3 visited, amongst other
distant places, Persia, Asia Minor, Abys
sinia, Arabia, Mashonaland and the Sou
dan. One of her most memorable exploits
was that which she accomplished in the
first named country.
"Riding on horseback," said Mrs. Bent,
"we went right across Persia and over
the Caucasus. Our object was to make
excavations In some Islands in the Per
sian gulf."
Persia, to say the least of It, is not a
land of milk and honey for the lady trav
eler, yet Mrs. Bent did not seem to think
it marvelous that she was alive to tell
the tale.
"Our mission took us quite off the beat
en track," she told me, "and the meeting
with the wild, wandering tribes that
abound in the west of Persia was of daily
occurrence, but we had the protection of
the shah, who ordered the secretary of his
grand vizier to accompany us. The vari
ous governors were made responsible for
our safety. Thus when we passed from
one governor's territory to another the
latter had to give a receipt for our lives.
On crossing each border a flock of horse
men came galloping up to take charge of
us. It was a most interesting journey,
performed at the rate of about twenty
miles a day. Our food, beds, tables and
chairs we carried with us, and, of course,
a cook. We slept where we could. One
night we spent in the house of a chief,
and a very curious house it was. The floor
was of mud and the windows made of pa
"One of the most novel spectacles we
witnessed was the shah and his camp.
The Persian monarch was making the
journey to England and had with him
his harem, an immense etaff, and two
thousand camels and horses, all loaded
with packs. The shah had a wonderful
tont fitted up with wooden partitions re
sembling very closely those of the orig
inal tabernacle. For food he had enor
mous quantities of lambs and chickens,
the animals being tied to&ether. The
staff ate up everything like grasshop
"You had an exciting time in Abysinia,
I believe?"
"Well, It was far from an enjoyable
experience. We had to get up every
*iorning before It was light, as it took
us two hours to pack the camp. This
done, off we would go, marching on until
about 4 In the afternoon, when the final
halt would be called co as to allow us
time to procure wood and water before
nightfall. We certainly had some alarm
ing moments. We had to sit up the
whole of one night owing to the possi
bility of attack. It being a time of war.
We were in great danger of being taken
prisoners, and eventually had to flee to
the Italian colony.
"Abyssinian custom's are extremely
curious, and may deserve mention. For
Instance, it is considered a sign of great
dignity to cover up your nose. An Abys
elnlan prince always hides his nasal or
gan from view, while If a gentleman

meets a prince lie strips himself of his
clothes and wraps them around his waist.
Backsheeah plays a conspicuous part in
the life of a traveler in Abyssinia. One
day five generals rode up to see us. They
said they loved the English. This was
very complimentary, but I am afraid the
protestation at affection had to be some
what discounted when they explained
that they loved the English because they
spent so much. This gentle hint we had
M> take.
"However, we fared tolerably well. Tre
mendous feasts were brought to us in
camp, but I fear we didn't appreciate
them as .much Is the donors expected. A
favorite article with the Abyssinians is
a very stiff paste made of grain Into
which Is poured a quantity of cayenne
pepper. It is fearfully hot stuff, as you
can imagine.
"Very interesting visits were those I
paid to southern Arabia and Palestine. In
the former country, you are in the midst
of chocolate-colored people, who are more
aboriginal than the Arab. They wear
blue cloths around their waists —nothing
else. Wild and warlike. If you show fa
vor to; one, a quarrel is sure to arise.
They didn't like our traveling in their
holy conutry, where Mahomet was born,
and on one occasion I saw the ground
struck up by a bullet two yards in front
of my horse; a second later, a bullet
went swish by my ears. Many shots in
four different places were flred at us.
"It Is in the Valley of Jehoshaphat that
the people in the east believe that the
day of Judgment will be celebrated. ■ As a
consequence, the inhabitants of Palestine
like to be buried as near the spot as pos
sible. The idea is that their bodies shall
be near when the day arrives. I have
known bodies of persons who have died
in Jerusalem to be embalmed and taken
away, so that they shall not be passed
over when the end of the world comes.
Mohammedans desire to be burled near a
saint because they think that when God
comes for the saint they can accompony
him into paradise.
"Much the same sort of thing obtains
In Persia. If the death of a mollah is
followed by that of a layman close by,
the relatives of the latter wait for the In
terment of the mollah In order to bury
their friend near him. In Persia, bodies
are carried for miles and miles so that
they may be laid to rest near the tomb
of a saint. I have seen four bodies
strapped on one mule, two on each side,
with a man In between, going their last
