I arrived for the celebration of Armis tice ilav combined with that of the "Oth there. The old site is pretty well covered with the villas and pleasure grounds of rich Musslemen. but there are some ex cavated tracts that may be visited by the tourist.

Both bv day and by night it was fascinating realiv very little is left of the old days save a few broken columns,, ruined cis terns and mounds of rubble. The site is magnificent and the harbor splendid. On dwtnnt hills nro littlo wJiitavvnsliiifl vil- i lages and the minarets of mosques. The Arab Tunis is of great extent. all to prayer comes tire times a day from streets are only paths, very narrow and S'lTistL-prl ami linpil W ith shoo which are onlv counters enclosed on two sides and in the rear. A tiny space is left for the mei chant and his goods which he guards patiently hour by hour and never seems to sell. His prices have no relation what ever to the value of his wares or the sum he will accept for them. A man asked me ,10 centimes fo ra beautiful little jar. I paid it to him. but put three in my pocket instead of one. and he said nothing. I got some charming leather work. too. for about the same figure, that is to say about a third of what was asked for it and a quarter cf what it was worth. The bazaars are grouped by trades, tail ors, leather workers, silver- and gold smiths, and. by no means leat, the per fumers. Such essences can only be found in the Orient. We don't and can't know them in our country. They are very nu merous, very delicate and very volatile. One buys them by the drop and carries them about in the tiniest of little flasks. Nothing can compare with the orange, the rose and the jasmine. You feel the nat ural flower has been intensified, that's all. Inceiiee for burning is very common and &i you sit in Arab cafes men go by waving censors filled with sweet-scented burning gums. For a block on each side of the market the air is heavy with ravishing odors. Cafes abound as nothing else does. There are chairs for a few guests, but most of the men sit crossed-legged, slip periest, on shelves over which a bit of mat ting has been spread. Coffee is pulverized, mixed with honey and then mixed with an equal quantity of hot water. As it boils up it is instantly removed from the stove and served. It is. for a wonder, quite clear and indescribably delicious. My limit is a tablespoonful ; habitues can take a little more.

And look at the second verse of Mr. Guest's poein as he says : "Keep your faltlr through thick and thin. Spite of care and sorrow: Though' today you may not win, Feel you will tomorrow. When disasters come j our way -"' Following fast and faster. Keep the faith to stand and say . All of them you'll master." Why not apply our body or health the same as our faith. We must keep our health in the best of condition if we give to this world what we owe it. Disasters will come, but many of them can be driven away bv simplv using BABKONY. We are happy, pleased and proud of the results our customers have obtained by its use. We are always pleased to have you tell us if you have used BABKONY and it has failed to d; its part. We are not pleased to have it fail, but we want to know if it does fail. We have not yet received our first complaint. Yet if it does what we claim it will and even more, it's worth rec ommending to our friends, is it not? BABKONY is sold, anil guaranteed bv F. Thomas, V. F. Boot & Son.

In a few days I am going to go by the only train on the only railway line as far as it will take me and from there try to get down into the desert. It will be an experience worth the great effort re quired. I have always wanted to do it. The green hills of Vermont seem far. far away, but some day I shall come back to them.

Bennington ftl. Windham ril, Addison oJS, and Washington oS7. Grand Isle, on the lower end of the string, again this; year rcjiorted no deer killed. Going back again to the biennial re port it is found that in the list of deer killed while damaging crops Windham cuinty rejHirted 107 out of a total of 141 for the whole state. Addison. Cale donia. Chittenden. Franklin, Grand Isle. Lamoille aud Orleans reported none ki'led. Essex only one. Orange two, Windsor five. Bennington and Washing ton seven each, and Rutland 12. The reKrt also show.s that in the two-year period the amount paid farmers and or chardists of Windham county for deer damage was over GO jwr cent of the amount paid in the whole state. Stated in another way, tho wardens in this county had to go and personally ex amine over per cent of the deer shot doing damage in the whole state, and O. K. th shooting of them, and the Windham county warden personally had to go and examine over CO per cent of the crops in the state on which deer damage was claimed. Working with the chairman of selectmen in the various towns, he had to award damages on these claims, all this lx-ing in addition to ever seeing and assisting in the usual protec tive patrol work in his county. Nq other county warden in the state had very much deer damage work to attend to, consequently had that much less expense to reixut. and a correspondingly greater amount of time to devote to patrol work. The deer damage awards in Windham comity alone, during the two years end ing .June ::o. lirjo, totaled 'S2.OlN.47. and only SM.14O.r.0 for the whole state in the same period. The damage award ed in this county during the year ending June W. litl'l, was Xtf44.S more than that awarded in the vear ending June .".O. 1120. the Mecrcase bt'ing partly due to the tacr that an open zone. was estab lished in Westminster, partly to the fact that there was much las early-season damage to bean fields and truck patches, and partly because deer practically ceased doing damage in ' some towns where they had previously worked the crops; severely. Now a word about the deer damage claims. The bill which resulted in the law as it now stands was prepared and put through the legislature largely bv the Efforts- of Windham county agricultur ists. amf as a whole the farmers of this county who had already suffered consid crably from the depredations of the fast increasing deer herd, were well informed from the start as to the possibilities of the situation, and proceeded to avail themselves of its remedies much more freely than did the farmers in other counties. It is also -claimed by some that the se lectmen in sonic towns, apparently not wanting to bother with adjusting claim have discouraged the claimants by neg lecting to act. taking advantage of the technicalities of the law, esiecia!Iy that part which requires a written notice of the claim. The farmer would notify them verbally that he had damage, but they would neglect to inform him that he must give them written notice, and would take no action, perhaps telling him it would cost him more to get a dollar out of the state than the dollar would be wortli, but in Windham county all the selectmen apparently have been ready to act whenever a claim was called to their attention. The policy of the fish and game department has been in favor of a liberal interpretation of the law. and in Windham county at least it has been administered in accordance with that indicy. A year or two ago Essex county news papers, in commenting on the number of deer shot doing damage in Windham county, stated in substanse that no deer ver did damage in Essex county, )os ;ih!y because the farmers killed them all ff before they had a fhance to destroy my crops., and .the biennial report boars that paper out somewhat in its presump tion, only one such deer having been re ported from that county in the two years, and Essex has quite a number of deer, too. It is not insinuated that similar conditions do or even may exist in other ounties, but the fact remains that out side of those from Windham county very few rejiorts of deer shot doing dam age ever reach the department. Also in ac-ord with the fact 'that in this county are the most deer is that nart of the commissioner's report show ing the number of deer .illegally or aeoi dentallv killed, that is. shot out of sea son, killed by dogs, bobcats,' automobiles, railroad trains or. other agencies, or dy ing from wounds inflicted in the open season. This rejxirt is necessarilv verv Incomplete, afbesCniilf of the lnfT re ported from the whole state Windham county. is responsible for 43. This county also claims to Lave as good brook trout fishing as has any of the other counties of the state, if not better. The mountain streams in thi county are almost innumerable, and while they are fished hard and often by a large number of resident and a rapidly increasing number of non-resident an glers," they yield many a limit catch of the speckled beauties, and thousands of average fair catches, and still hold up fairly well under the stiff punishment they get. One reason for this is that the silt-inch law is now very generally ob served here, and another reason is the liberal and sytematic stocking done by and under the supervision of the Wind ham County Fish and Game club. . Replenishing depleted supplies and ed ucating sportsmen to observe protective laws is the only way to keep the hunt ing fand fishing good enough to attract those interested. The mountains, vales, streams and lakes, well inhabited by the natural denizens thereof, are assets that should be guarded zealously, that they may bring rare enjoyment to all lovers of the great outdoor world. What has already been done in the Hue of protection? The laws, with a few . changes that may soon be made, are, on the whole, adequate to control the situation when fearlessly and im partially enforced. Of the 14 counties in this state only two, Addison and Windham, have county wardens who de vote their whole time to the work on a salary basis. Naturally the cost of warden service in these two counties is greater than in other counties, but the results attained are also very much greater. In the other counties the county wardens devote only a part of their time to the work. Local deputy wardens are employed more or less in all the counties and there are in the state at present two special deputy wardens, one located at Vergennes and the other at Burlington, who devote their whole time to the work on a salary of ! 1.000 each per year, working anywhere in the state when assigned on request of a county warden. It has not been necessary to use these special deputies in Windham county to any great extent, although one of them has done a little work here, but not very recently. On the other hand some of the Windham county wardens have put in considerable time on special work outside their own county. According to the commissioner's report the total cost of warden service in the various counties for the two years ending June 30. 1020, was as follows: Addison, $,-.,.40.74-; Windham, $.".301.77: Chit tenden.

From these figures it will readily be seen that the part Windham county takes in hsh and game matters is an imiortant one. i igures are not available by coun ties for fur-bearing animals, but it is estimated by the largest handlers of raw furs iu the state that the value of elts taken and sold in the state last year was 300.2.10, and Wiudham county fur nished its share. This county has an excellent supply of partridges and small game. There are no figures for the amount of fish taken, but the aggregate of catches during the past two years in this county was far ahead of the average.

When the department gets enough money to develop the Vernon rearing station tbis section will be much better situated as regards stocking fa cilities. It is also expected that the closing of some small trout streams as breeding brooks to supply fish for the adjoining larger waters will produce very satisfactory results here, as it already has in other sections where this method of replenishing the supply of trout has been tried out. Being already so favored by having a good reserve stock of fish ,and game on hand it is now up to the sjiortsinen to pull together and continue the present ioliey of adding to and conserving the natural supply, which has already placed tjiis county in the front rank as a pleas ure ground for those who enjoy hunt ing and fishing.

Mrs. Alice Richmond, who is confined to her home with asthma and bronchitis, is a little improved. P. R. Mann, who has been confined to his home the past two weeks by illness, is a little more comfortable. Miss Delia Smith received news yester day of the death of her brother, Rev. P. S. Smith of Haverhill. Mass.. after an ill ness of over three years. He formerly was pastor of the West Brattleboro Baptist church 11 years. The Select Ten club was pleasantly en tertained yesterday in the home of Mrs. II. Prefontaine. An enjoyable part of the meeting was an excellent dinner, served at 1 o'clock. A social time fol lowed in the afternoon. Stephen Dubriske, 12. of Ashuelot, X. II., underwent an operation Monday eve ning by Dr. E. R. Lynch for appendicitis. Joseph, sou of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Bevis, who live in the Barber building, was operated upon yesterday morning by Dr. Lynch for the removal of tonsils. Fred Brown of Dummerston was admitted to the hospital yesterday for medical treat ment of his hand. Two fingers on the hand were amputated a few weeks ago, and a cold which Mr. Brown contracted settled in the hand. Age of Earth Incalculable. Astronomy gives little hlnf of the nge of the enrth. It Is presumed that our family of worlds came from a much older cloud of nebula, tut when It Is attempted to expiess the time in years from that era to this, the figures are meaningless; they are so vast. The remotest period of time which geology reveals shows the earth to nil Intents the same as It is today, with the exception of the higher forms of life. That era was a million of mil lion years ago, and In proportion to the history of our globe from Its gen esis It was hardly more than a few minutes In one day of time. Remarkable Sleep-Walking. A boy told bis parents one morning that the previous night he had dream ed he got out of bed and climbed to the summit of an enormous rock, where he discovered an eagle's nest which he brought away with him and placed beneath his bed. It was dis covered later that these events had ac tually taken place. The precipice he had ascended was of a nature that baf fled even the most experienced moun taineers, and the nest was discovered beneath his bed. Just as be had stated. Exchange.
