ot l'e-ru-na, the well,

sober opinion formed

This is the wuy Mr.
Michael Fako of 908
East Tallin-r Avenue,
in the Michigan Metro-
polis, writes i "After
using l'IS-KU-NA for

1 have found it a very

i live and recommend

troubled with catarrh."
Nothing can be more
convincing than an en-
dorsement of this na-
ture from an actual
user. There are many
people in every com-

"There's a Reason"
(Prepared by the National Geographic Su
olety, Washington, D C )
Few countries are more Isolated
than Tibet with the huge bulk of
China hemming It In on the east, the
I world's greatest rampant of moun-
tains to the south and west, and vast
desert expanse to the north, ltehlnd
these bulwarks Tibet has existed for
j centuries, inhospitable to the knock-
! lng of modern ideas; and it is today,
| therefore, In institutions and customs,
| one of the most primitive of the Inrg-
j er continental countries which have
any semblance of governmental tna-
j chlnery. Buddhism seems to have
been the only one of the great forces
molding the outside world which made
j itself felt behind Tibet's towering
mountains; ufid even that force, hav-
ing once gained success, has been al-
most swallowed up In the devil wor-
ship which Is the highest religion that
the Tibetans themselves have evolved.
Until a few years ago the West
knew practically nothing of Tibet ex-
cept the rather doubtful Information
| brought to the outside world by a few
adventurous travelers of the middle
ages. Explorer after explorer dur-
ing the past century was turned back j
with but a fleeting glimpse of the |
edge of the unknown land, usually in i
| the sparsely settled regions of the ,
But though much of Tibet Is un- |
known, civilization lias set a few out- >
posts In the eastern edge of the coun-
try close to the Chinese border, and
so has come to know "provincial Ti-
bet" fairly well. The valley of the
Yangtze, where that greatest of Chi-
nese rivers flows almost due south at
the eastern end of the Iilmaluyas,
' forms the southern portion of the bor-
! <ler between China proper and Tibet,
j Theoretically Tibet is a vassal state of
I China, but actually since the Chinese
revolution Tibet has kept all Chinese
officials out and has swum free under
her ruling priests. Even the region
on the China side of the Yangtze Is
more Tibetan than Chinese.
This border region, which is better
known to the outside world than any
other part of Tibet, is a country of
high plateaus and Maintains. The prin-
cipal city of the region, Bntang, Is
one of the lowest points, yet Its alti-
tude Is 9.000 feet above sea level,
nearly twl« e that of Denver. Much
of the surrounding plateau Is 12,(XK>
to 15,000 feet high. From this great
upland rise numerous peaks 20,000
feet and uiore in height.
Tremendous Mountain Panorama.
The view from the summits of some
of the passes that must be traversed
In traveling about this marvelously
rugged country can hardly be sur-
passed anywhere In the world. The
panorama for hundreds of miles on
u clear day Is one of countless high
peaks Interspersed with greater snowy
masses that exceed in height the top-
most pinnacles of all other continents.
Below timber line are some line for-
ests, and the Alpine-like flowers of
the short summer are exceedingly
beautiful. Here ami there among t lie
mountains are clear, sparkling lakes,
their waters so cold that in most of
them Ash cannot live.
Many of the Tibetans are nomads,
tending flocks of sheep ami yak on
the uplands, and llvh\g In black, yuk-
halr tents. In those valleys which
are low enough to permit the matur-
ing of grain, other Tibetans practice
a rude sort of agriculture.
In spite ot the told winters the tent
Is the year-around home of the no-
mads, and they seldom even enter a
house. As the snow melt
lower slopes of the mountains in the
spring, they follow their herds up-
ward from the valleys In Its train,
with flat roofs. These dwellings are
not unlike the adobe houses of Mex-
ico, hut are decidedly more sub-f.tn-
tlal, being constructed by the beat-
ing of mud into thick walls between
forms of timber.
The farmers have few animals but
utilize the yak for plowing, the an-
imals being brought down from the
highlands at the proper time. Wood-
en plows with a single handle are
The living quarters In the house of
the valley folk usually consist of a
single large room, in tvhich all work,
Including the cooking, Is done, and
where the members of the family eat
Few Comforts In the Home.
The comforts In such homes are
very meager. In few establishments
Is there even the semblance of a bed.
In the ordinary houses "going to bed"
means merely loosening the girdle,
opening the sheepskin garment, and
curling up on the floor with the feet
toward the stove, which is an essen-
tial feature of all habitations in this
high, cold country.
The stove is built of mud, with a
fireplace below and a hole in the top
Into which pots may be set for cook-
ing. It is usually found on one side
of the living room, and the members
of the family, on retiring for the
night, range themselves in a fan-
shaped group about It.
Families possessing domestic ani-
mals share their houses with them. In
two-storied houses the lower floor is
the stable, and through It the living
quarters are reached. In some one-
storied houses the front portion is
given up to the animals, while the
family lives in the rear.
The two principal foods of the Ti-
betans, "tsaiaba" and "butter tea"
seem to a westerner neither appetiz-
ing nor nourishing, but in spite of a
cheerless climate the mountaineers
manage to keep sturdy on them.
Tsainba Is made by parching barley
and then grinding it into a sort of
emergency ration, which on mixture
with moisture is ready to eat. Wlieu
Tibetans are on journeys or are wan-
dering about with their flocks and
herds, they carry tsatnba in small
leather bags inside their coats, tints
always having at hand the materials
for a hearty meal.
In preparing the other principal ar-
ticle of their diet the Tibetans first
make a strong liquid by boiling the
coarse Chinese tea which they prize
most highly. The concoction is
strained into a churn and to It are
added, a lump of butter, more or less
stale, and a handful of salt. The
queer mixture is then churned into
an emulsion. The resulting liquid is
neither tea, soup nor gravy but to an
occidental is a sort of indifferent mix-
ture of all of them.
Original Condensers of Milk.
The Tibetans of this region were
probably the original users of con-
densed milk in the form of dry lumps,
for they have prepared this article of
food for many centuries. Fresh milk
is poured into a churn which is never
washed and the liquid therefore cur-
dles almost the instant it comes into
contact with the germ-incrusted walls
of the container. It is then churned
and the butter Is extracted. After
the butter is extracted the milk is
boiled in a large iron pot until it
reaches the consistency of thick syrup.
It is then poured out in a thin sheet
and allowed to dry, after which it is
broken into small pieces and stored.
The lumps often become as hard .as
011 the | stone, and to eat them dry is out of
the question. The nomads solve the
problem by substituting the dry milk
for tsnmha, soaking it In their butter
