THE SEAT OF WAli IN EGYPT. Gen. K. E. Colston, formerly a bev in Egypt, contributes the opening il lustrated article in the March Cen tury, from which we quote the follow iug description of a portion of the present beat of war: "He who has never traveled through the desert can not form a just idea of that strange and marvelous region, in which all the ordinary conditions of life are completely changed. It is esentiallv a waterless land, without rivers.: creeks, rivulets, or springs. Onee away from the Nile, the only supply of water is derived from deep wells, I few, scant v, and far apart. Long' uiiari. i.onr ttrougntsare lrequent. When 1 ev-i plored tho great Arabian desert be-! i itesert be- vrsT'aiul' tweeu the Nile and the Be had not rained lor three when I traveled over the route and through Jvordofau, no rain! had fallen for two years.

When lung droughts occur, the always scauty crop of doura fails away from the! Nile, and the greater parts of the i flocks aud herds perish, as well as a considerable part or the population. It follows naturally that when under taking a jouruey through tho desert, the paramount question is water. A supply must be carried sufficient to last to the next well, be it one or five days distant It is usually carried iu goat and ox skins suspended from the camels' pack saddles. These are the water bottles of Scripture, which be come leaky from wear, and always lose a considerable portion of their contents by evaporation. L"he first thing after reaching a well is to as certain the quantity and quality of its water. As to the former it may have been exhausted by a prccediug cara vau, aud hours may be required for a new supply to ooze in again. As to tho quality, desert water is generally bad, the exception being when it is worse, though long custom enables the Bedouins to drink water so brackish as to be intolerable to all ex cept themselves and their flocks. Well do I remember how at each well the; nrst skintul was tasted all around as epicures sip rare wines. Great was jj,L'' ..,f .,.. i,f ;r i, itnJ. "l,r'i ""hr" ""iv- """.

The best water is found in natural rocky reserviors iu deep narrow gorges where tlie sun never shines. As to 'live springs,' I never in six saw more than half a dozen thousand miles' travel.'1 The Doctor Doctoring. Some doctors love to prescribe long voyages for very debilitated and failing patients, Just to get them out of the way, and not havo them die on thoir hands. Last week the doctor told a poor fellow who can't raise money to buy a new hat, that he oitffht to eo lo Europe. Better tell such a man to keep near home and uoe Brown.s Iron Bitters. Dr. Myers, of Fairfield, Iowa, has tried it exten sively among his patients. Me sajs, "It is the best iron preparation I have known in my th irty years of practice." A prohibitory law is tersely char acterized by a Philadelphia opponent as "an attempt to protect drunkards against themselves, nt the expense of sober people."
