Truly, Persia Is no place for the o
hustler, accustomed to "do" a country ce
or a kingdom by express railroad a
routes and automobile transit, and ci
who expects to get Rits or Waldorf- a
Astoria wherever he stops. T
Only when the powers take hold of b
Persia and run the country will travel t1
become easy and pleasant for the ordi- a
nary globetrotter. For the present
it is open only to the venturesome and
leisurely, for there are scarcely any d
railroads in the length and breadth of ii
the land, and transit over any distance c
Is both perilous and arduous, though 0
full of interest to the strong and sea- 0
soned traveler. 0
In Persia It is no simple under- v
taking to prepare for a caravan jour- v
ney of 150 miles or so, as your arange- I
meats must allow for at least eight
days on the road-in many places e
merely a rough, stony track through d
mountain gorges. A string of six 1
or eight mules is required, and you a
have to be smart at a bargain when 1
you haggle wjth the owner of the n
hearts, though as a matter of fact, the t
muleteer generally gets his price. a
The contr&kt must then be written
out. and the muleteer affxes his seal 1
to it, for few of them can either read
or write. But you are not through
with the deal until you have paid over
halu or even three-quarters of the
stipulated 'ticket ourney." The next
