Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 Excerpt: .ravines disclosed snowcapped mountains, below which were forests of dark pine, and the different zones of vegetation could be distinctly traced. Just below the snow, grass was growing, and then in rotation followed pine forests, rhododendrons, mixed evergreens, and then in valleys sub-tropical plants. I should here note that the vegetation is more Tibetan in character than Chinese. On the road I noticed a single rope suspension bridge over a river. This consisted of a bamboo cable about three inches in diameter, stretched across about 120 feet above the water, and having a free running plaited bamboo ring upon it. From this ring an inverted Tpiece, with the shank about four feet long, hung, and light hauling lines were attached to it and to each bank. The traveller seats himself on the cross of the T, and then, the cable of course being in a curve, on letting go from the bank his own weight carries him half-way, or MIXED BAGES IN TA-TSIEN-LU 183 more, across. He now takes the hauling line, and pulls himself up the curve to the other bank. The city of Ta-tsien-lu is not seen by the traveller until he is close to the gates, and on entering, the streets are %found to be crowded with a strange mixture of races. The houses are certainly Chinese, but the population is a mixture of all the nations of Asia, Tibetans predominating. I made my way through the city, and, passing out by the south gate, soon found the house of the Eoman Catholic Bishop-Monseigneur Biet-who received me very kindly, and interested himself in getting rooms at an inn in the city, the same place that Captain Gill and Mr. Baber had stopped at.
