The first day was exciting. We
passed into the gorge below Lan-
chow a few hours, and had a roar
ing time until we landed at 3:30 P.
M., the raftsmen all tired out. There
we dropped half our crew, requiring
only one man at each oar from there
on. We struck a rock wall on our
way through, and evidently cracked
an oar, for a few minutes later the
waves beat the thing in two, and
then it wa3 a grand tussle in the
rough water (it was like being on
a snake's back) to get the extra oar
in place, and it was done none too
I thought we would have much
spare time, so had a little square
board cut out at Lanchow, and have
painted squares on it in red from
a little tube of cheap ($0.07) paint
I got in a shop at Lanchow. It is
serving now as a letter deski but
we may play some checkers yet.
Yesterday morning we stopped
where there were a lit of camels
and Mongolians a sort of tax office
place. While the "rafters" paid tax
we rambled about. I was down the
bank of a canal and started in a
bee line for the raft Coming over
the bank I saw a pile of straw in
my path. Crash! The straw was
a cover to a dug-out in the sand
that formed a temparary shelter for
the Mongol cameleers. Everyone
laughed except the two who were
cooking directly in front of the
shelter. The next time I see a pile
of straw on top of a bank, I'll send
in my calling card.
Ruth got hold of a little black
felt hat, the German helmet kind
that were popular about 7 or 8 years
ago. She converted it this after
noon into a chic hat for Miss Bir
rel. She cut the long sides into
strips and braided them to form an
ornament ending in a small bow at
the back. It Is clever. I think I
told you how she fixed a nice one
for Mrs. Derk and one for herself.
Hers was a hopeless red felt, but
now it is an up-to-date turban with
"fixins." The ladles expect to take
