Travels in the Orient free pdf Excerpt from Travels in the Orient We feel that it has been a privilege before visiting other lands, to have again first traversed our own, getting a bird's-eye view for comparison with the foreign countries we shall visit. We left San Francisco bay at night, and by morning were crossing the trackless wastes of the Mojave desert. For one day we traversed the land of the coyote and the red man. "Lo, the poor Indian," is showing in many ways the effects of civilization- some of them have comfortable, square stone houses, with books, shaded lamps, lace curtains, etc. The men take care of the babies in some cases while the women go out into the market-place, - which is the railroad station, -to sell bead work and gaudy blankets to the tourists, so in some respects they have even gone a step in advance of the white men and the woman-suffragists. But the white people are beginning to realize the possibilities of this seemingly desert land, and occasionally we saw the shack of the hardy homeseeker. If our government would only spend on this productive land the money it will spend on dreadnoughts in the next ten years how many families would be given comfortable farms, and what an enormous asset would be added to the nation. Now we come to the prosperous states of Colorado and Kansas- the land of corn and wheat. Monotonous in their sameness arc the states of Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio. Then we came to the hills and finally mountains, and found ourselves in historic ground. Occasionally we saw the old hewn-log houses of the pioneers of our country, some of them still inhabited. In "Maryland, My Maryland," we crossed the river at Harper's Ferry, where "John Brown's body lies a mouldering in the grave." Soon we came to Washington, the city of a thousand interests to the patriotic American. We went to the Capitol and sat in the gallery of the House, listening to the debate of the wise men concerning Canadian reciprocity.
