Mr. Kolloy said the lit.' el the Coun?

Then, too, her secretary reports
that it takes two letter carriers each |

The Land of tho Selten Moor.
The supreme ambition of the Moor Is
to be left to himself, to exclude the
ChrVitlnn from his lands and to light
out his own existence according to the
dictates of his religion and of Ills nil

this ever present Idea of a deity to ]
whom they can appeal for help In the
smallest <>f their tasks, this conception j
Of a power that Is capable of doing no |
wrong ami of protecting nod guiding
Its followers, which accounts for the
peculiar disregard of physical punish- ]
nient out] even of death so character?
istic of the Moors. 1 remember one
morning as we were passing through j
the country hearing a man on one of |
the hillsides crying out In a loud voice.
