I . C.)
Afghanistan, long almost a synonym
for fanatical isolation from the rest of
fhe world, Is at last apparently show-
ing u desire to enter the family of
nations. The Moslem kingdom, which
even now continues Its old policy of
exclusiveness pending the outcome of
Its negotiations, recently sent u dele-
gation of nobles to Washington to pe-
tition the United States for the es-
tablishment of diplomatic relations be-
tween the two countries.
Afghanistan's exclusiveness is not
accidental. Situated between the
southern-growing empire of Russia and
northern spreading liritish India, it
has been the typical buffer state; Its
natural exclusiveness, due to religious
fanaticism, has been accentuated by
the political rivalries of its great
Forbidden Lhasa Itself is no more
exclusive than brooding, suspicious
Kabul, tl;e capital of this isolate, un-
friendly realm of fanatic tribes, of
rocks, deserts, irrigated valleys and
towering unsurveyed ranges.
Not a single railway or telegraph
line has been permitted to cross this
hermit country or to run into it, lest
the pernicious ways of the world leak
in. And the six or seven million people
have been hardly on speaking terms
with any other nation.
Few Foreigners Permitted to Enter.
Night and day, from stone watch
towers and hidden nooks along the an-
cient caravan trails that leatl in from
India, from Persia and Russia—trails
used long ago by Alexander and Jen-
gliiz Khan—squads of bearded, tur-
baned Afghans, with imported Held
glasses and long rifles, have kept
watch a gal ust trespassers from witl>
Only a few Kuropeans, mostly Brit-
ish but occasionally also an Ameri-
can and now and then a few Russians
or Germans, have been permitted to
enter ti>is country and to sojourn for
ti while In its curious capital. Hut even f
on such rare occasions as when a for- i
eign engineer, or a doctor whose serv- j
Ices are badly needed, Is admitted by j
the grace of the amir, the visitor is j
subject to a surveillance that amounts I
almost to imprisonment. "Splenflld
isolation" is a sort of Afghan tradition
a conviction that the coming of the
foreigner will mean the end of the
amir and of his unique, absolute rule.
As it is, no other monarch now
wields such undisputed authority or is
In closer touch with the every-day life
of his subjects. Me personally runs
his country's religion and its foreign
affairs, and he even supervises much
of its commerce. He also owns and
censors the only newspaper printed in
all Afghanistan. Incidentally, he keeps
58 automobiles, and he never walks.
Even from one nearby palace to an
other he goes by motor over short
pieces of road built especially for his
pi ensure.
Though the amir took no active part
In the World war, he emerged from it
with singular profits. His old and
once rival neighbors, Great Hritaln and
Russia, drawn together as allies in the
conflict, left him a fr« e hand. In 1019
Great Britain officially recognized the
political Independence of this much-
bulTeted buffer state, to whose rulers
she had so long paid a fat annuity.
K^eps in Touch With the World.
Afghanistan, with an area of 24fi.OOO
square miles, Is, next to Tibet, the
largest country in the world that Is
practically closed to the citizens of
other nations. Hut political life at
wary, alert Mohammedan Kabul is in
sharp contrast to ti e meditative sertu
slon and classic aloofness of the Uftid
dl 1st lamas at Lhasa. Through ngents
In India and elsewhere Amir Anuinul-
lah Kh«n Is In close touch with the
world's current events; and, as the
last remaining independent ruler of a
Moslem country, now that the power
of the Turkish caliph at Constanti-
nople is broken, he wields a far reach-
ing influence throughout the Moham-
medan world. And it Is probably that
because his land happens to lie just
as it does on the map of the world, he
will be for a long time to come an
active force in the political destinies
of middle Asia.
The amir's word, his veriest whim,
is law to his millions of subjects, lie
is. in truth, the last of the despots, a
sort of modern oriental patriarch on
u grand scale. His judgments are, of
course, based primarily on the Koran,
or on the common law of the land.
There is no statute book, no penal
code and no court.
The amir reserves to himself tlie
right of passing death sentences. The
cruel Afghan forms of punishment,
such as shooting a prisoner from the
cannon's muzzle, sabering off his head,
stoning him to death, burying him
alive, cutting off his hands and feet
or putting out Ills eyes, are seldem em-
ployed nowadays; yet often the crimi-
nal himself will choose a quick, though
violent, exodus to paradise rather than
suffer long Imprisonment in a til thy
iron cage, perhaps to die eventually
of starvation.
The way of the transgressor in Af-
ghanistan continues to be uncommonly
bard, howe\*'r. Time and again, in
the recorded history of this land, de-
posed amirs, troublesome relatives and
political enemies have been deliber-
ately blinded, there being a tradition
here that no man with any physical
affliction may hold a public office of
honor or profit.
Its Mountains and Tribes.
Politically, Afghanistan is divided
into four provinces; Afghan Turke-
stan, Kabul, Kandahar and Herat.
Topographically Its most conspicuous
features are the high peaks in the
northeast; where it touches the great
Hindu Kusli, the Tirach Mir attains a
height of over 28,000 feet.
Through these mountains of north-
east Afghanistan wind some of the
most picturesque and historic trails of
the whole world. For centuries the
trrde between Turkestan and India
has flowed over these high passes,
and the story goes that often these
annual caravans number as many as
120,000 loaded animals, including cam
els, mules and horses.
Afghanistan is a Babel of races and
tongues; more than half Its population
are not Afghans at all. The majority
group embraces the Iranian-Aryan
Tadjiks, who inhabit tlie settlements
and large towns; the Mongolian Haza
rahs, who roam the mountainous cen-
tral regions of the country, and the
Turkomans and L'zbegs of northern
Afghanistan. The real Afghans, or
"Pablo*" (Patlians). as they call them- '
selves, live in the high ranges stretch-
ing from the Solitnans past (Jhaznl and
Kandahar to the west, toward Herat.
The tribes are divided into minor
clans, called "kliel." and they live al
most entirely off their herds of cattle. ;
camels and sheep.
Persian culture has molded the so-
cial life in Afghanistan through cen-
turies; notwithstanding the religious j
hatred between the Sunnis and the
Shias Persian customs haw been more
or less adopted In the upper ranks
of nil middle Asiatic Moslem society.
From the Persians the Afghans got the
idea of marrying more than one wife;
but, like the Persians, too. they have
found to their dismay thai polygamy
Is nowadays a most expensive custom.
Amir Habibullah Khan (who was
assassinated in 1010) had a harem of
100 women, and among these, strange-
ly enough, were u few Europeans. The
present amir, Amanullah Khun, has
but one wife.

they came out and spoke openly

4. Uproar of the Silversmiths at
Ephesus (w. id. (i) The occa-
sion (\v. 23, 24). This was the pow-
er of the gosp« I in destroying the
infamous business of Demetrius and
his fellows. It was clear to them that
Idolatry was tottering before the pow-
er of the gospel. They were not In-
terested particularly in the mutter
from a religious standpoint, but be-
cause it was undermining the princi-
pal business of the city. (L') The
method (vv 25-20). Pemetrius, a
leading business man, whose business
was the stay of others of a similar
nature, called a meeting and stated
that much people bad turned from
idolatry and that the market for their
wares was materially weakening, lie
appealed to his fellows (a) on the
ground of business, saying "This, our
craft, is in danger of being set at
naught," (v. 27). (b) On the ground
of religious prejudice. He said *'The
temple of the great goddess IMana
should be despised" (v. 27). He be-
came quite religious when he saw that
his business was being interfered
with. His speech gained his end; the
whole crowd was enraged and yelled

Impossible to Get Light From Wax
Candle Without the Presence of
Necessary Ga^es.
A wax candle really Is a gas torch.
You will find that when you apply a
lighted match to the wick of a candle
it will not light readily. You have to
hold the milteh to the wick until the
wick burns suflicicntly to heat the wax
hot enough to turn It Into gases which,
on mixing with the oxygen in the air,
produce the tire in the form of light.
The candle will continue to be
lighted and to burn as long as the
wax continues hot enough to give off
the gases or until the candle Is en-
tirely consumed. Any Interruption to
this process of transforming the wax
Into gas will result In tlie extinguish-
ing of the light.
The reason the candle goes out
when you blow on the flame Is that
the gases which feed the flame at
the end of the wick are blown away,
the | roeess of turning the hot wax
Into gas is interrupted and with the
J.US supply shut off the flame is ex-
tinguished. Cleveland Plain Dealer.

According to Organist, He Was Always
Sure of One Listener When-
ever He Played.
An organist, telling of his experi-
ences while playing the great Instru-
ment In a Ib ston hall, relates a pret-
ty story of his most regular listener
a spider Hint had taken tip his abode
in the organ ease over the performer's
head. It remained there for about
a year.
It was a musical little fellow, and
when the man began to play It would
spin down almost to a level with his
shoulder and gently swing to and fro
and listen. When he had finished a
piece it would draw itself up to Its
nest, and when lie began another,
down It would come again and resume
its position as an Interested listener.
It had six legs. Two It put out In
the air as a balance pole, two It
handled the web with, and the third
pair it used in pulling itself tip hand
over hand, as sailors climb a rope.
The organist came at last to watch
for the little fellow, and It was always
faithful, so that he wns sure of at
least one attentive and appreciative
