In equally emphatic terms he denied what he called a "whispering campaign" that he is being used as a -stalking horse" to help or hinder some other candidate. "That is a role I- never played and never will," he said. He also made it clear he "certainly welcomes" the support of his friends and called it an "absurdity" for anyone to state he would repudiate the action of those seeking convention delegates pledged to him. i .

Beyond that fringe, the nomadic tribes know only the barest ot existences. Illiteracy is universal. Upon an Islamic base, superstitions thrive. Old men are sometimes killed on the assumption that they could not have lived so long except by supernatural aids. This is not bad reasoning, since life Is cheap and Wars are frequent; but when Thomas made his trip, peace prevailed, to the distress of the Arabs. Yet as they made their way between water-holes five and eight days' Journey apart, his escort was always on the lookout for enemies, and scouts were sent forward to scrutl- Bis Featured Monday!

A warrior thus describes the climax of a raid on Innocent and unsuspecting tribesmen: "We crept till within M paces and then suddenly opened fire. They leapt up wildly in the darkness shouting, but in utter contusion, and we drawing our daggers fell upon them and God gave us the victory. Praise Ood from whom 11 blessings Cow." IGNORANCE of the outside world is so complete that Thomas wan asked: "Prom what Arabs are you?" Life on the steppe at the edge of the desert is so lean that "there not sufficient water to support the horse or the dog Tents and houses are unknown. In the steppe their place is taken by th shade of n acacia, in the mountains by s eave." Polygamy Is permitted by reli-trton, but rare on account of the expense. Besides, It Is unnecessary as divorce M easy And common, which condition accounts also for the strict observance of marital fidelity. A woman may not milk animals and may not cook fond. Her work consists in (razing and tending rattle, collecting firewood nd water, making pottery and cat ting hay for the bed. Apart from rifles and ammunition, the gasoline tin is the most widely distributed product of civilization, being the lightest and handiest receptacle known to the Arabs. Women are cheap compared to camels, the price Of brides running from M of our money to $100 for the very best.

The com-1 plete Indifference of the ugly, awkward brutes is the more remarkable because they are Just as dependent on man as man is on them. They are stupid, except for sense of direction, and will set off for home and starve on the way there. They can do hardly anything for themselves, and cannot even drink unless the water is held up to them in cupped hands or In a bucket. Frankincense gathering Is the only Industry of southern Arabia. Though this grows as a commercial crop at only one spot, 2.500 feet above sea level, the natives make a good thing out of it. In the wadis. or valleys. It grows as a tree with small, branches, coming to a clump about ten feet above the ground. The trunks are tapped with daggers, and a gum emerges like "green transparent lard and very fragrant." This Is dried and shipped In resinous form to India, whence It ts sent all over Asia for temple and household use as incense." THE RESEARCHES of Thomas seem to establish his theory that the Arabs of the South are of Hamittc or Negroid stork from Africa, with a mixture of Arminian blood, and not Semitic like those of North Arabia and Assyria.1 Special mention should be made of the it photographs, which are particularly fine, the rolling desert sands proving perfect backgrounds for camels and travellers. The features are distinct in all portraits I have had to omit reference to lizards, snakes, foxes and other desert creatures, which will attract naturalists to the volume, as the beliefs and ceremonies of the tribesmen, also omitted in this digest, will please anthropologists.

Storekeeper j Are ()ppied lo II. j While merchants on Rideau street are presenting a petition to the Board of Control meeting next Tuesday night, requesting an end be put to the new limited no-parking refills; ions which are being given a trial, storekeepers on Sparks street, where the same regulations are being tested, although finding the rules none too favorable to trade, are inclined to see the new laws given a fair trial. The Rideau street merchants are complaining that their business is being adversely affected and the petition, which bears 200 names, was circulated by J. W. Carneau, druggist, and C. Caplan.
