If Tibet offers no attractions to the tourist, who requires luxurious travel ing, to the uportsman and the natural tut it is a veritable paradise, though far from Edenln in some respects. One of the largest of the mam malia Is the yak, or grunting ox. Standing between B and 6 feet high at the shoulders, the bulk of this strange looking creature la not a little exaggerated by the enormous growth of hair upon 'the lower part of the body and tall. Beteath the outer coat, moreover, there Is a layer of fine wool known as "puhslm," which la highly prized for the making of cloth. The extraordinary tall Is one of the most conspicuous features of Tibetan mon asteries or lamaseries, being suspend ed on poles as streamers. Throughout the Eat these tails are used as fly wblHks, and In China thoy are dyed red and fixed to the roofs of summer residences as pendants. Living near the region of perpetual snow, and of fierce disposition, the hunting of the yak Is not to be lightly undertaken. In spite of temper, however, It Is easily domesticated, and forms an In valuable beast of burden, being won derfully sure footed and capable of carrying great weights. It Is, how ever, unable to eat corn; and forced marches, exhausting alike to man and beast, are often on this account neces sary. Barren and inhospitable, the high tablelands of Tibet harbor yet other hoofed animals as remarkable as the yak the chlru antelope, for example, which, like the strange saiga, has de veloped an enormous swollen nose. It Is supposed that this enlarged slit of the nasal chamber is directly dut to the need of some special adaption for breathing the highly rarefied air of these regions. A fine dwelling house and fouraccrs of land. House has six nice rooms, pantry and cloths cl"cts all In finr condition. This property has a good large frame barn, good well of watei with wind-mill, lots are covered with hearing fruit trees. Property al fenced.
