Washington.—The arrival in W««h Ington of an envoy from Afghanistan, bow perhaps the .moat mysterious country In tha world, seeking the rec ognition of bis home land and the vs UbHsbasent ef diplomatic relations with the United Htatea. seems to In dicate that the policy of absolute Isola tion from Ibe reel of the world long followed by this Moslem kingdom Is te be mod I bed. Light on conditions In this little-known region Is shown by the following communication to the National Oeogrupblc society from Frederick Mlmplch and liajl Mlrxa Hussein : "The buffer state at Afghanistan, historic shock-absorber between Greet Britain and Moasla la Middle Asia, year* ago put up a 'Keep Out' sign, a . secluding his little-known lend to the greatest poealble eztent from the out side world.

Great Brit ala and lluasla, drawn together as al Ilea lit the world conflict, left him a free hand, and In 1919 Great Britain officially recognised the political In dependence of thla much-buffeted buf fer stare, to whose rulers she had se long paid a fat annuity. "With an area of 249.000 square miles. Afghanistan la. next to Tibet, the largest country In the world that la practically closed to the cltlsens of other nations. But political life at wary, alert Kabul Is In sharp contrast te the meditative seclusion and classic aloofness of the pious lamas at Lhasa. through Ms agents In India and else where. la In close touch with the world's current events; snd, as the last remaining Independent ruler of a Moslem country, now that the pow er of the Caliph at Stamboul la bro ken, he wields a far-reaching Influence throughout the Mohammedan world; also, because bis land happens to lie Just as It does on the map of the world. It Is plnln that for a long time to come he will be sn active force In the political destinies of middle Asia. Wives Distributed aa Gift«. "From the Persians the Afghans got the idea of marrying more than one wife; but. like the Persians, too, they have found, to their dtamay. that polygamy Is nowadays more expensive than exciting. "Sometimes, when the amir wants to favor his fMlthful officials with presents, or perhaps to play practical Jokes In certain cases, he distributes women among them ; but these 'gifts' often prove so troublesome that no greet degree of gratitude la apparent among the recipients.
