If we draw a lino through Tarsus
duo north across the Peninsula of
Asia Minor and another through
Smyrna directly east tho two lines
will Intercept In tho volcanic region
of Mount Argaeus where tho cone
pyramids and pure cliff dwellings of
Cappadocia are found writes J R
Slttlngton Sterrett an English trav
eler and artist who has recently vis
ited that out of the way country The
whole region Is of volcanic formation
which covers a vast area extending
west to Selrao and south to Soghanlu
Dere and is composed of a deep layer
of pumice stone tufa or peperine
overlaid In tho region of Tatlar by
rugged lava fields The pumlco or
tufa Is of almost Incredible thickness
but the overlaid layer of lava Is com
paratively thin not more than three
feet at any point The tufa is so
soft that It can be dug away with the
thumbnail so that only tlmo and
patience wero necessary to excavate
it Into chambers of any required size
It is known that a chamber 25 feet
long 13 feet broad and 10 feet high
was excavated by a single workman
in tho space of thirty days
In this region tho troglodytes of
Cappadocia havo the wonderful dwell
ings which wero first described by
Paul Lukas who traveled In Asia
Minor on tho commission of Louis
XIV His story was discredited but
It is correct in every vital particular
and he perhaps understated tho truth
when ho estimated the number of
cones at 50000 The region was vis
ited In succession by Texler Hamil
ton Tschlchatscheff Ainsworth
Barth and Mordtmann but It is still
virtually unknown The height of
the cones varies greatly ranging per
haps from 50 to 300 feet Tho tall
est cones usually stand in the center
of rn eroded valley but not always
Tho process of disintegration by tho
solvent action of water still continues
of course and In many cones the ex
terior wall has been worn away to
such tn extent that tho chambers are
laid bare Such exposed chambers
It they lie fairly In the sun are used
for drying grapes and other fruit
as they are safe against invasion by
animals Often the cones are almost
perfect In shape and originally all of
them wero crowned by caps of lava
which wero the primal cause of the
cone formation The caps maintain
their position as they form one Inte
gral conglomerate mass with the cone
Struggle for Wealth Almost Equal to
Wall Street Frenzy
A young fellow a fellow passenger
was leaning upon the rail beside me
looking upon the scene below Ho told
mo to watch and he would show me
somo sport He drew a dime out of
his pocket lIe waved his arm to at
tract tho attention of tho negroes
down upon the lower deck and then
he flung the coin It fell tinkling and
rolled between two cotton bales With
yells the negroes rushed at It tumul
tuously piling over one another n
tangled mass of waving arms and legs
whenco Issued muffled groans and
grunts Then suddenly the mass dis
solved again Into a mob of rousters
gaping up at us with rolling yellow I
eyes and heaving chests and dilated
nostrils Another piece of silver
twinkled in the air and fell among
them Leaping nnd grabbing the
negroes snatched at the falling coin
then plunged again Into heap
By this time others of the passen
gers had heard tho noise and tho
scuffling and soon quite a crowd was
gathered along the rail A shower
of change began to fall upon tho deck I
below and Into the crowd of now
Unit frantic blacks
It was a comical spectacle A
ittlo while before the negroes had been
quietly busied about their own affairs
a handful of cheap silver had fallen
among them and in less than a min
ute their small world wan transformed
Into a pandemonium I have heard It
said that the same phenomenun occurs
sometimes on the stock exchange
Harpers Magazine
Very often the doorways are quite
elaborate and display nn attempt at
architectural and decorative effect
moro especially In the case of cones
that have been turned Into temples
churches or chapels On entering
the doorway of any of these cone
dwellings we find ourselves within a
spacious chamber about tho walls of
which niches and shelves for time
storage of small household effects
have been cut Into the stone Time
stairways leading to tho upper stories
are like wells or round chimneys and
one ascends to an upper story by I
means of ladder holes cut In the rock
The floor between the stories are usu
ally thick enough to withstand any
weight that might be put upon It but
occasionally the excavators miscalcu
lated tho thickness of the floor and
so had to make one lofty chamber In
stead of two As many as nine stories
may occur in ono cone but most have
only two three or four stories which
can bo counted by the windows
Great numbers of the cone dwellings
aro used today as dovecotes for hosts
of pigeons the eggs and flesh of
which are used by tho cavo dwellers
Tho windows of such pigeon houses
are always walled in holes being left
for tho passage of the birds
The natives of this region are still
to all Intents and purposes troglo
dytes but if we leave out of consid
eration the fact that their dwellings
are at least partially underground
they differ In habits and customs In
no whit from tho ordinary Turkish
villagers with ordinary humdrum sur
roundings Sometimes the front of
tho house Is built of blocks of pum
Ico stone while all the rest of tho
abode Is subterranean the cone or
cliff being used as nn annex but in
most cases a modern dwelling Is ex
cavated not In a cone but In the face
of the bluff and thus becomes a cliff
dwelling properly socalled This
is true of tho business street of the
town of Urgub where the front room
or facade opening on the street Is
tho only room in the dwelling into
which tho light comes The other
Man and Wife
The snow was falling The day i
was still and gray and cold Dr
Parkhurst shaking the white flakes
from his shoulders said
I have Just witnessed nn Instruc
tive happening happening that
might teach us why somo marriages
do not succeed
A man and his wife were walking
down a back street The man had his
hands in his pockets Tho woman
carried a basket filled with cabbage
and beets
A group of boys danced like Imps
rooms aro in midnight darkness all
tho year round
The owner of such nn abode can
extend his dwelling Indefinitely into
tho bowels of tho earth a feature
which Is not without Its advantage In
n land where the wise man conceals
tho fact that ho Is wealthy The In
terior chambers are used chiefly for
granaries and storage even their
chaff which Is made to take tho place
of our hay Is safely stowed away In
these dry and dark chambers
The landscapes amid which tho
modern troglodyte dwells aro never
tame and are often startling Tho
modern troglodytlo usages add to
rather than detract from tho general
weirdness of the prospect The soil
is fertile and produces vegetables and
fruit chiefly apricots of superb qual
ity Indeed ono ot the old travelers
claims this region as tho original
homo of tho apricot Garden and
I desert are often close neighbors for
tho reason that tho garden flourishes
whfl vcr the stone hats rotted suf
lie ntly whereas the adjacent but
mar eil and unrotted stone is tho most
barren of deserts Tho real center of
these cones and troglodytlc abodes Is
tho region about Udj Assaru a huge
mass of pumlco stono rising In tho
midst of many branching valleys
The Turkish namo means the Castle
of Udj but It Is not known whether
Udj was the name of some princeling i
or of a district It is a mere shell
honeycombed to the very pinnacle
with chambers sufficient In number
to satisfy even tho wealthiest troglo
It Is very difficult to fix a date for
the origin of theso cave dwellings
They aro mentioned by no classical
author except perhaps Cicero but
there Is an allusion In the works of
Leo Dlaconus who flourished about
950 A D Prof Sayce however be
lieves that tho cones of Cappadocia
wero well known and Inhabited In
the Hittlto period about 1900 B C

Stories of affection and apparent
reason among wild animals havo di
vided the naturewriters Into two
schools Ono believes that animals
act merely from instinct the other
holds that tho dumb brute feels and
reasons In Tho Life of a Scotch
Naturalist M Smiles quotes from
the journal of Thomas Edward the
story of how a little flock of terns
rescued a wounded companion which
tho naturalist had shot
I fired and he camo down with a
broken wing screaming as ho fell in
to tho water The report of the gun
together with his cries brought to
gether the party ho had left in order
that they might ascertain the cause
of tho alarm
After surveying their wounded
brother round and round as ho was
drifting unwittingly toward the shore
with tho flowing tide they came fly
Ing In a body to the spot where I
stood and rent the air with their
screams These thoy continued to ut
ter regardless of their own Individual
safety until I began to make prepar
ations for receiving the approaching
bird I could already see that it was
a beautiful adult specimen and I ex
pected In a few moments to havo it
in my possession slnco I was not
very far from the waters edge
While matters wero in this position
I beheld to my utter astonishment
two of the unwounded terns take hold
of their disabled comrade one at
each wing lift him out of the water
and bear him out ueawnnl They wero
followed by two other birds
After having carried him about six
or seven yards they let him gently
down again and tho two who had hith
erto been Inactive took him up
In this way thoy continued to carry
him alternately until thoy had con
voyed him to B rock at a considerable
distance upon which thoy landed him
in safety

Castles In Spain are probably tho
ihoapcst In tho world for a person
with a sanguine temperament and a
Ittlo Imagination may build them at
my time In this respect they have
in advantage over the chateaux of
franco shown In the Illustration
But seine of these French chateaux

almost In tho class of abandoned
arms Castles on the Rhino used to
5o within the reach of moderate for
tines but they havo greatly Increased
n price lately In tho same way thoro
mis been an Increase In tho prlco of
Italian palaces
Neither tho Hlilno castles nor the
Italian palaces are so numerous as the
bateaux of France There were many
of them built many years ago some
of them dating from the days of Louis
That these places should bo pur
chased at small prices Is duo to tho
centralization In the lIfo of Franco
wllch has taken so many of tho popu
lation to the cities Young men In the
families that owned these houses In
the past had usually enough to limo on
and possibly maintain tho chateau In
a meager fashion that was a strango
contrast to Its early grandeur
Sometimes a wealthy marriage
helped the owner to hold on to the
chateau These conditions all existed
until the time cane when those places
wero offered for sale
This was the result of tho feeling
among young Frenchmen that It was
not beneath their dignity to work
Nowadays men of tho oldest families
aro anxious to make a name and a
fortune just as If they had not n long
line of titled ancestors behind them
Heirs Are at Work
They enter all professions They
are lawyers engineers architects and
scientists These professions take
them to Paris If they do not lead them
far beyond the borders of their own
Such houses as those shown In the

landscape gardeners toward tho close
of tho last century
A lake lies In tho woods of tho largo I
