THE MOJAVE DESERT.
A. TlTld Description of It by a Private
An extract, which we are permitted
to take from a letter from Norman C.
Wilson, who is collecting plants and
specimens for the Botanical gardens at
Berkley, Cal., gives ns a glimpse of the
"Maiove Desert," which may not be un
interesting to our readers. He says: "As
I came rolling across the desert, a little
over a week ago, I thought of my prom
we to-give yoa some description of it "
and, between spells of reading '. '.Nature's
Serial Story," I looked out upon one of
the strangest sights I ever beheld. The
Mojave Desert is not "barren. There is a
kind of "grease-wood" and "creosote
bush," which divide the honor with the
cactus family of clothing the desert in a
Bombre and fantasticdrees. Neither is it
level, but is relieved by mountain rangee,
the very climax of rug-redness anduse-
lessness. There is one redeeming fea
ture about the whole scene. Never have
I seen such atmospheric effects in color
ing, and never have I Been such ragged
crags, such heaps of rocks, in such, fan
tastic shapes, such barrenness spread
over a growth of shrubs, such seeming
utter worthlessness, to need the kindly
touches of a wonderful atmosphere, to
lend some beauty to mountain and valley
scenery. In tbe foreground, supposing
that we are iii the middle of a plain, the
ground presents a yellowish, clayey color,
set off with the gray and brown, in many
shades, of the desert shrub, cacti (one
variety) loom up in places, almost like
stunted pines,' the tops more rounded
out, and not so tall. In other cases,
they seem to obey no order or law of
nature but to be fantastic. , So stretches
the plain for miles and miles. We come
tot. a glistening lake, it reaches away for
miles in front and to right and left, but
as ' we dash into it,' the only spray is
sand. It has a bluish look, and reflects
the sunlight as though it were water,
but the sand holds full sway and is col
ored by deposits of alkali, bard blue,
glistening and" to the weary, water;
starved traveler merciless. Yet it is a
lake, a great lake I Again we lose all
plant life, miles of rock, and it seems to
have been tamped down, so smooth is
its surface-. The - color here is. brown
deepening to black.' It seems as though
afire had sweptover the whole expanse,
spreading a thin' layer of pitch over rock
and' pebble, which has Lnce petrified
and become a part of the. 'rock itself,
but looking away in tho distance, who
can paint with brush or pen, the won
derful changes from terrible ugliness
to surpassing beauty, can give the
touches which clothe the desert in beau
tiful mystery, the vast, the ugly, the
deadly, yet beautiful unexplored, mys
terious desert? Surely not the "col
lector" in overalls plucked too soon,
reddened boots, -shabby hat and coat,
and unshaven chin, who is taken for a
"'tramp" wherever-he goes..- Such des
ultory thoughts ran through my mind.
as 1 crossed tne aesert. i nave since
explored it enough to find that its mys
tery is chiefly death and desolation, that
its poetry ' and " beauty on more close
acquaintance", are but - the. luring forces
that draw men on to destruction the"
most terrible. ''-' '- -' . -
: .It's sometimes said patent medicines
are for the ignorant. .The doctors foster
this idea. "Tbe peopled" we're told,
'are mostly ignorant when it comes to
medical science." Suppose they, are I
What a 'sick, man needs is not knowl
edge, but a. cure, and. a medicine that
cure is the- medicine for the sick." Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery cures
the "do believes" and the "don't be
lieves." . There's no hesitance about it,
no "if" nor "possibly." ..It says :"I
can cure you, only do as I direct." Per--haps
it fails occasionally. The makers
hear of it when . it does, lecause. they
never keep the money when the medi
cine fails to do good. : Suppose the doc
tors went oh that principle.. (We beg'
the doctor's pardon. It wouldn't do!)
