' iSHING to give our baggage camels another day's rest before starting on the 'trying journey from Murai.Wells.toWa-- dy Haifa we profited by tho. delay to take a long ride out on the Abu-Hamed road with our ?ood ' friend "Abdul Azim Bey says a. writer In'the London News.- The' ostensible object of this excursion was to 1 see a huge rock in the shape of a crocodile that Abdul -Azim had discovered not long since: about a conple ot hours ,out from.;Murat .and a few hundred yards away from the Abu- Hamed-caravan trackr This rock, said our guide, hud never yet been seen by Europeans. , Mounted on-a couple ot our friends best bred running camels, and escorted oy some halt-dozen; well-armed, tribes-' m«n on small, active beaste as swift'as our own, we set out at that fast trot which is aa pleasant on a well-bred Hadjtiy, as on a rough, hard-set brute It 1s excruciatingly painful. It was Just after dawn and the air was delicious, for the sun does not begin to get really fierce until after 7 a. m., and as we wound down the Khor and out -among the Kopjes of the desert, with a pleasant 'breeze fanning our faces, with the camel's pad striking crisply on the firm, gravelly sand, and the men's aceouter- ments jingling rhythmically aa they jogged along, -we felt our blood tingle and our spirits buoyant with the exhilaration due partly to the glorious cli- of. the JoyouBnesB of things- that he be- gan'suddenly to buck. Now. a bucking camel Is, of all the .pleasant sights In nature, the most laughable. The great beast seema at these moments of ex- pancion to put off his camel nature and to Imagine himself literally the hum-- .mlng bird to which Mr.'Kipling's fancy has compared him. : For instance, wlien tho spirit moves him to buck, the camel of a sudden hurls himself high Into the air, spread- Ins out all his splay limbs at right angles to his unwieldy carcass. Arid he alights, after this grotesque effort, with hie feet all abroad, and a rock-splitting, splno-dlssolvlng,:th-ud; only.-to--make afresh and'more extravagant departure. It is a soul-attrrlng performance. ' Ho brings a marvelous perseverance to the exercise and will keep it up over half a mile of country. But It is the humming bird he Is aping -all the while, the graceful colibrl flashing jewel-like into 'the air (here the camel projects himself into space) or poleing featuer- BOY'S ESSAVj.ON SHARKS. • j, 1 •..iv.", ,,\ ft 'l^t- f ••'•'" .1 i<« v-t«fi "<»•-' -"•'" '"'••' '.
