The visit of the shah of Persia to
the continent, and his Interesting say
ings and doings, while there, have very
naturally directed more than usual
public attention to the laud over which
he rules. Considered politically, his
torically or socially, Persia Is In many
respects one of the most fascinating of
all Oriental countries. It la the last
running barrier between Russia and
the Persian Gulf; Its history teerns
with lofty names and great dynastic
changes, and Its social life piques Eu
ropean Interest by its mystery and Its
novelty. And yet little is known of
Persia, even by intelligent Europeans;
while to the great mats It remains
terra Incognita. Bit by bit, however,
we are breaking through the exclu
siveness of Persian etiquette, and afe
learning how fascinating the people of
Persia are. In no phase of Persian
life do we find more to charm, to sur
re- prise, and to fascinate than we do In
studying the lives and manners of Per
it ; *l*n women. The myBtery that sur
j rounds them, their own fatalistic se
realty, the limitations which are plac
j *d upon their lives, In a word, the com
' Plete dissimilitude to feminine life in
the Europe, lend a peculiar and unfailing
for- Interest to all that concerns them. It
1*» well to sweep away some of the
the cobwebs of prejudice In considering
the character and statUB of the wo
men of Persia. They are not Ill-used,
the 1 they are not unwilling prisoners, they
that do not resent the restraints of the ha
rem, and they do not regard thern
be selves as victims of misfortune.

cure Is the exposure of the body to
light and air, tension and relaxation,
these latter to be produced by cold and
heat (perspiration), and the absolute
cleansing of the body with water. In
a sheltered valley beside Veldes Lake
lies the "air hut colony," absolutely
cut off from the rest of the world. Boon
after your arrival at Veldes to take the

Inhabitant of one of the huts, a three
