The second reason given is, that at certain times of the year the native grasses of the country, which are very sweet [url=http://www.cheaplouisvuittonus.info]Louis Vuitton Outlet[/url] and good, turn as yellow as ripe corn; and the [url=http://www.coachmh.com]Discount Coach handbags[/url] third arises from a tradition that the people were originally yellow skinned, but grew white after living for many generations upon these high lands. Zu-Vendis is a country about the size of France, is, roughly speaking, oval in shape; and on every side cut off from the surrounding territory by illimitable forests of impenetrable thorn, beyond which are said to be hundreds of miles of morasses, deserts, and great mountains. It is, in short, a huge, high tableland rising up in the centre of the dark continent, much as in southern Africa flat-topped mountains rise from the level of the surrounding veldt. Milosis itself lies, according to my aneroid, at a level of about nine thousand feet above the sea, but most of the land is even higher, the greatest elevation of the open country being, I believe, about eleven [url=http://www.coachmh.com]Cheap Coach Bags[/url] thousand feet. As a consequence the climate is, comparatively speaking, a cold one, being very similar to that of southern England, only brighter and not so rainy. The land is, however, exceedingly fertile, and [url=http://www.cheaplouisvuittonus.info]Louis Vuitton Online[/url] grows all cereals and temperate fruits and timber to perfection; and in the lower-lying parts even produces a hardy variety of sugar-cane. Coal is found in [url=http://www.hermesmw.com]Hermes Handbags[/url] great abundance, and in many places crops out from the surface; [url=http://www.christianlouboutinshoeswm.com]Chrisian Louboutin Heels[/url] and so is pure marble, both black and white. The same may be said of almost every metal except silver, which is scarce, and only to be obtained from a [url=http://www.coachmh.com]Coach Outlet[/url] range of mountains in the north.
Zu-Vendis comprises in her boundaries a great variety of scenery, including two ranges of snow-clad mountains, one on the western boundary beyond the impenetrable belt of thorn forest, and the other piercing the country from north to south, [url=http://www.christianlouboutinshoeswm.com]http://www.christianlouboutinshoeswm.com[/url] and passing at a distance of about eighty miles from Milosis, from which town its higher peaks are distinctly visible. This range forms the chief watershed of the land. There are also three large lakes -- the biggest, namely that whereon we emerged, and which is named Milosis after the city, covering some two hundred square miles of country -- and numerous small ones, some of them salt.
The population of this favoured land is, comparatively speaking, dense, numbering at a rough estimate from ten to twelve millions. It is almost purely agricultural in its habits, and divided into great classes as in civilized countries. There is a territorial nobility, a considerable middle class, formed principally of merchants, officers of the army, etc.; but the great bulk of the people are well-to-do peasants [url=http://www.hermesmw.com]Hermes Bags[/url] who live upon the lands of the lords, from whom they hold under a species of feudal tenure. The best bred people in the country are, as [url=http://www.michaelkorswm.com]Cheap Michael Kors Handbags[/url] I think I have said, pure whites with a somewhat southern cast of countenance; but the common herd are much darker, though they do not show any negro or other African characteristics. As to their descent I can give no certain information. Their written records, which extend back for about a thousand years, give no hint of it. One very ancient chronicler does indeed, in alluding to some old tradition that existed in his day, talk of it as having probably originally 'come down with the people from the coast', but that may mean little or nothing. In short, the origin of the Zu-Vendi is lost in the mists of time. Whence they came or of what race they are no man knows.
present it is collected from purely alluvial diggings, which we subsequently inspected, and which are situated within a day's journey from Milosis, being mostly found in [url=http://www.cheaplouisvuittonus.info]Louis Vuitton Sale[/url] pockets and in nuggets weighing from an ounce up to six or seven pounds in weight. But other diggings of a similar nature [url=http://www.michaelkorswm.com]Discount Michael Kors Bags[/url] are known to exist, and I have besides seen great veins of gold-bearing quartz. In Zu-Vendis gold is a much commoner metal than silver, and thus it has curiously enough come to pass that silver is the legal tender of the country.
