Your affectionate neice, Mary Lamb. My dear Mary: You gave me some awful hard questions to answer this time. The Red sea is so called because its surface is literally covered with small crimson aniraalcula). The wa ters of that sea are as clear as crys tal and of a bright hue. Probably the oldest timber in the world is found in the ancient temples of Egypt in connection with stone work which is known to be at least 4,000 years old. This, the only wood used in the construction of the temples, is in the form of ties, hold tlie end of one stem to another. Now, dear Mary, write again soon. Sequachee, Tenn., Dec. 29, 1896.
