There is n paiiictilarly largo
species of upor, too, which infests the
iiaik noies ami corners 111 tho masonry ;
its body attains thu thickness of n man's
arm, and its bite is said bv the natives to
cause instant death.
It is perhajis curious that nothing
should bo positively known of tho man
lier 111 which the ruin of Tersepolis was
brought about. The Oieek historians
relate how Alexander the Great, in a mo
meut of drunken frenzy, and instigated,
ltis said, by Tunis, fired with his own
hnnd the palaeo of tho 1'eisian nionnich.
.Subsequent writers, however, have alto
gether disbelieved the story, nnd have re
ferred the mill of IVlsi poll's to tho epoch
of tho Mohammedan conquest. Against
this last view it iay bo luged that 110 ac
count is to be found in tho Moslem his
tonaus of nuy di stiuctiou of these palaces
having taken placo at tho time of the
conquest j and, bearing iu mind that
many of thoeaily annalists and geograph
era 111 Islam were conveited l'ersians, wo
should eeitainly Imvo had some account
of tho matter had theelevastatioii of what
they held to be tho throne of Jamshid
bes-n an event of thednys of their gland
fathers, and the woik of tho iconoclastic
Arab.
, As tending to conllrni tho Greek tradi
tion of the eleslructioii having been caused
by lire, the traveller ninv Mill observothe
inaik of Han es on tho doorways nnd
Hall of Hundred Columns. A euiious
indication of the mateiial used for tho
loof of this hall is to bo ob'aiiied from
thu pieces of ehaicnal nud elianed wood
which form n la.ver e xtending npptuently
over tho wholo Iloor of the buihling. At
tho present day tho men of tho hall is
covered to thn depth of somo ten feet by
hardened mud and rubbish, mostly do
tutus brought down by the winter rains
from tho hill nt the toot of which the
palaeo stands ; but digging, which has
been underneath to ascertain tho position
am number of the columns, has evuy.
wheio brought to light a stratum of mud
continuing bits of charcoal, this stratum
being somo twelvo inches in thickness,
andljiug within an inch or so of tho
marble blocks forming the iloor of the
hall. This charcoal wo may take to bo
tlio lemiiins of brums nnd inteiiorllttings
brought ilovm nt tho falling in of tho
roof.
Examination under tho micioscopo
shoHBthat tho wood of which we huvo
heio tho ehurrcd remains came from n
tree eif tho pim, family, nnd from tho
markings of tho grain btill visible in tho
charcoal, even after a lapso of 2000 years,
tho tpecics may bo idetitilled as that of
tho cedar. Now conifers do not grow in
any of tho regions round l'ersepolis j tho
nearest ccdais 1110 thoso of tho Lebanon j
and though there is no doeuineiitnry uvi
eleiico on tho subject, wo may with somo
probability regaid this asthospot whence
camo tlio beams for rooting tho Hall of
Hundred Columns, if wo call to mind the
analogous ciicumstauce.s nt Nineveh,
where cedar chniconl has nlso been fount,
nud where clay tablets 1110 extant, bear
ing edicts in eiuieifoim writing reladng
to tho transport of this timber fiom the
cuast of the Mediterranean oveiland to
thovnlh'yof tho Tigris.
Tho ruins of Iho I'erscpiilitan palaces
havo a strango skelcton-liko appearance,
very striking on coming for thu Ihst Minn
up tho gigantiobtairway from tho plain
ou to the platform. Of each celitlco the
framework, so to Bpenk, still stands, but
of walls nothiiigieniains, Thobuildings
wero but 0110 story high. Doorways nud
windows, with hero nnd there columns
crowned by tho quaint double-giilllu cap
itals, stuuel out sharp against tho blue
sky, appearing iu many cases almost as

Tho black doorways nnd window-frames

of a theatre. Ho may walk out of n door

else but entertain all tho time. When ho

the other sido they scattered, and betook
new ones on. and so it was nil tin, (i,
changing at every place we went to."
Where did ou ciltise in the N'n.

In tho Mediterranean while r un

bly frightened and most of them only

overboard and boats had to bo lowered to
pick them up. They wero very sheepish
when Mr. Dennett told them it was only
ajoKe. Hoouly wanted to get them up
so that they might hnvo some moro fun
with him. Now, I tell you, mostof them

Ho ordered up llzz nud polly, nnd tney

"Another time, nftcriibigdiiiiu'r, about

camo tqi 011 deck alone, and calling one

a hose. Tho man fetched it to him, not
suspecting anything, and taking the noz

"Wero thero ever nny ladies on Iho

"No, sir, wo scarcely ever hud any

"After leaving Gibraltar wheio did Mr,

"Wo cinibed through tho Mediterra
