"Look up there!" cried an old shepherd, pointing to the slope ofthe cursed Zagastai. "That is no mountain. It Jordan Sneakers is HE who lies inhis red mantle and awaits the day when he will rise again to beginthe fight with the good spirits."And as he spoke I recalled the mystic picture of the noted painterVroubel. The same nude mountains with the violet and purple robesof Satan, whose face is half covered by an approaching grey cloud. Mongolia is a terrible land of mystery and demons. Therefore it isno wonder that here every violation of Mens Jordans the ancient order of life ofthe wandering nomad tribes is transformed into streams of red bloodand horror, ministering to the demonic pleasure of Satan couched onthe bare mountains and robed in the Jordan Sneakers For Sale grey cloak of dejection andsadness, or in the purple mantle Jordan 13 Flint of war and vengeance. After returning from the district of Koko Nor to Mongolia andresting a few days at the Narabanchi Monastery, we went to live inUliassutai, the capital of Western Outer Mongolia. It is the lastpurely Mongolian town to Cheap Jordan Sneakers the west. In Mongolia there are but threepurely Mongolian towns, Urga, Uliassutai and Ulankom. The fourthtown, Kobdo, has an essentially Chinese character, being the centerof Chinese administration in this district inhabited by thewandering tribes only nominally recognizing the influence of eitherPeking or Urga. In Uliassutai and Ulankom, besides the unlawfulChinese commissioners and troops, there were stationed Mongoliangovernors New Jordan Sneakers or "Saits," appointed by the decree of the Living Buddha.

With all our arms and supplies spent in barter during the New Jordan Sneakers journeyfor the purchase of transport and food, we returned stripped andbroken to the Narabanchi Monastery, where we were welcomed by theHutuktu. "I knew you would come back," said he. "The divinations revealedit all to me."With six of our little band left behind us in Tibet to pay theeternal toll of our dash for the south we returned but twelve tothe Monastery and waited there two weeks to re-adjust ourselves andlearn how events would again set us afloat on this turbulent sea tosteer for any port that Jordan 13 Flint Destiny might indicate. The officersenlisted in the detachment which was then being formed in Mongoliato fight against the destroyers of their native land, theBolsheviki. My original companion and I prepared to continue ourjourney over Mongolian plains with whatever further adventures anddangers might come in the struggle to escape Cheap Jordan Sneakers to a place of safety. And now, with the scenes Jordan Sneakers of that trying march so vividly recalled,I would dedicate these chapters to Mens Jordans my gigantic, old and ruggedlytried friend, the agronome, to my Russian fellow-travelers, andespecially, to the sacred memory of those of our companions whosebodies lie cradled in the sleep among the Jordan Sneakers For Sale mountains of Tibet--Colonel Ostrovsky, Captains Zuboff and Turoff, LieutenantPisarjevsky, Cossack Vernigora and Tartar Mahomed Spirin. Alsohere I express my deep thanks for help and friendship to the Princeof Soldjak, Hereditary Noyon Ta Lama and to the Kampo Gelong ofNarabanchi Monastery, the honorable Jelyb Djamsrap Hutuktu.

"The wound is very dangerous but I gave to your Cheap Jordan Sneakers Chief very strongmedicine and hope that he will recover. One condition, however, isnecessary: the bad demons which have rushed to his side for hisunwarranted attack upon us innocent travelers will instantly killhim, if another shot is let off against us. You must not even keepa single cartridge in your rifles."With these words I ordered the Kalmuck to empty his rifle and I, atthe same time, took all the cartridges out of my Mauser. TheTibetans instantly and very servilely followed my example. "Remember that I told you: 'Eleven days and eleven nights do notmove from Jordan Sneakers For Sale this place and do not charge your rifles.' Otherwise thedemon of death will snatch off your Chief and will pursue you!"--and with these words I solemnly drew forth and raised above theirheads the ring of Hutuktu Narabanchi. I returned to my companions and calmed them. I told them we weresafe against further attack from the robbers and that we must onlyguess the way to reach Mongolia. Our horses were so exhausted andthin that on their bones Jordan 13 Flint we could have hung our overcoats. Wespent two days here, during which time I frequently visited mypatient. It also gave us opportunity to bandage our ownfortunately light wounds and to secure a little rest; thoughunfortunately I had nothing but a jackknife with which to dig thebullet out of my left calf and the shoemaker's accessories from Jordan Sneakers myright ankle. Inquiring from the New Jordan Sneakers brigands about the caravan roads,we soon made our way out to one of the main routes and had the goodfortune to meet there the caravan of the young Mongol PrincePounzig, who was on Mens Jordans a holy mission carrying a message from theLiving Buddha in Urga to the Dalai Lama in Lhasa. He helped us topurchase horses, camels and food.

"Shoot Jordan Sneakers at them with volley fire!" commanded our Colonel.Six robber bodies lay on the turf, while two others of the gangwere unhorsed and ran scampering as fast as they could after theirretreating fellows. Several minutes later the fire of ourantagonists ceased and they raised a white flag. Two riders cameforward toward us. In the parley it developed that Mens Jordans their chief hadbeen wounded through the chest and they came to ask us to "renderfirst aid." New Jordan Sneakers At once I saw a ray of hope. I took my box ofmedicines and my groaning, cursing, wounded Kalmuck to interpretfor me. "Give that devil some cyanide of potassium," urged my companions.But I devised another scheme.We were led to the wounded chief. There he lay on the saddlecloths among the rocks, represented to us to be a Tibetan but I atonce recognized him from his cast Cheap Jordan Sneakers of countenance to be a Sart orTurcoman, probably from the southern part of Turkestan. He lookedat me with a begging and frightened gaze. Examining him, I foundthe bullet had passed through his chest from left to right, that hehad lost much blood and was very weak. Conscientiously I did allthat I could for him. In the first place I tried on my own tongueall the medicines to be used on him, even the iodoform, in order todemonstrate that there was no poison among them. I cauterized thewound with iodine, sprinkled it with iodoform and applied Jordan 13 Flint thebandages. I ordered that the wounded man be not touched nor movedand that he be left right where he lay. Then I taught a Tibetanhow the dressing must be changed and left with him medicatedcotton, bandages and a little iodoform. To the patient, Jordan Sneakers For Sale in whomthe fever was already developing, I gave a big dose of aspirin andleft several tablets of quinine with them.

We moved forward, leaving among the stones the bodies of Cheap Jordan Sneakers two of ourcompanions as sad tribute to the difficulties and dangers of ourjourney. We rode all night, with our exhausted horses constantlystopping and some lying down under us, but we Jordan Sneakers For Sale forced them everonward. At last, when the sun was at its zenith, we finallyhalted. Without unsaddling our horses, we gave them an opportunityto lie down for a little rest. Before us lay a broad, swampyplain, where was evidently the sources of the river Ma-chu. Mens Jordans Notfar Jordan 13 Flint beyond lay the Lake of Aroung Nor. We made our fire of cattledung and began boiling water for our tea. Again without anywarning the bullets came raining in from all sides. Immediately wetook cover behind convenient rocks and waited developments. Thefiring became faster and closer, the raiders appeared on the wholecircle round us and the bullets came ever in increasing numbers. We had fallen into a trap and had no hope but to perish. Werealized this clearly. I tried anew to begin the parley; but whenI stood Jordan Sneakers up with my white flag, the answer was only a thicker rainof bullets and unfortunately one of these, ricocheting off a rock,struck me in the left leg New Jordan Sneakers and lodged there. At the same momentanother one of our company was killed. We had no other choice andwere forced to begin fighting.

The sacred phrase: "Om! Mani padme Hung!" was endlessly repeated.The Hutuktu wished us success, presented us with a large yellowhatyk New Jordan Sneakers and accompanied us to the monastery gate. When we were inour saddles he said: "Remember that you are always welcome guests here. Life is verycomplicated and anything may happen. Perhaps you will be Jordan Sneakers forced infuture to re-visit Jordan 13 Flint distant Mongolia and then do not miss NarabanchiKure."That night we returned to the Tartars and the next day continuedour journey. As I was very tired, the slow, easy motion of thecamel was welcome and restful to me. All the day I dozed off atintervals to sleep. It turned out to be very disastrous for me;for, when my camel was going up the steep bank of a river, in oneof my naps I fell off and Mens Jordans hit my head on a stone, lostconsciousness and woke up to find my overcoat covered with blood. My friends surrounded me with their frightened faces. Theybandaged my head and we started off again. I only learned longafterwards from a doctor who examined me that I had cracked myskull as the price of my siesta. We crossed the eastern ranges of the Altai and the Jordan Sneakers For Sale Karlik Tag,which are the most oriental sentinels the great Tian Shan systemthrows out into the regions of the Gobi; and then traversed Cheap Jordan Sneakers fromthe north to the south the entire width of the Khuhu Gobi. Intensecold ruled all this time and fortunately the frozen sands gave usbetter speed. Before passing the Khara range, we exchanged ourrocking-chair steeds for horses, a deal in which the Torgutsskinned us badly like the true "old clothes men" they are.

In no other way can I describe Jordan 13 Flint the journey from the River Ero tothe border of Tibet. About eleven hundred miles through the snowysteppes, over mountains and across deserts we traveled in forty-eight days. We hid from the people as we journeyed, made shortstops in the most desolate places, fed for whole weeks on nothingbut raw, frozen meat in order to avoid attracting attention by thesmoke of fires. Whenever we needed to purchase a sheep or a steerfor our supply department, we sent out only two unarmed men whorepresented to the natives that they were the workmen of someRussian colonists. We even feared to shoot, although we met agreat herd of antelopes numbering as many as five thousand head. Behind Balir in the lands of the Lama Jassaktu Khan, who hadinherited his throne as a result of the poisoning of his brother atUrga by order of the Living Buddha, we met wandering RussianTartars who had driven their herds all the way from Altai andAbakan. They welcomed us very Jordan Sneakers cordially, gave us oxen and thirty-six bricks of tea. Also they saved us from inevitable destruction,for they told us that at this season it was utterly impossible forhorses to make the trip across the Gobi, where there was no grassat all. We must buy New Jordan Sneakers camels by exchanging for them our horses andsome other of Cheap Jordan Sneakers our bartering supplies. One of the Tartars the nextday brought to their camp a rich Mongol with whom he drove thebargain for this trade. He gave us nineteen camels and took allour horses, one rifle, one pistol and the best Cossack saddle. Headvised us by all means to visit the sacred Monastery ofNarabanchi, the last Lamaite monastery on the road from Mongolia toTibet. He told us that the Holy Hutuktu, "the Incarnate Buddha,"would be greatly offended if we did not visit the monastery and hisfamous "Shrine of Blessings," where all travelers going to Tibetalways offered prayers. Our Kalmuck Lamaite supported the Mongolin this. I decided Jordan Sneakers For Sale to go there with the Kalmuck. The Tartars gaveme some big silk hatyk as presents and loaned us four splendidhorses. Although Mens Jordans the monastery was fifty-five miles distant, bynine o'clock in the evening I entered the yurta of this holyHutuktu.

We realized that the whole situation was sharply reversed. Theroute to the Pacific was closed. Reflecting very carefully overthe problem, New Jordan Sneakers I decided that we had but one possible exit left. Wemust avoid all Mongolian cities with Chinese administration, crossMongolia from north to south, traverse the desert in the southernpart of the Principality of Jassaktu Khan, enter the Gobi in Mens Jordans thewestern part of Inner Mongolia, strike as rapidly as possiblethrough sixty miles of Chinese territory in the Province of Kansuand Jordan Sneakers For Sale penetrate into Tibet. Here I hoped to search out one of theEnglish Consuls and with his help to Jordan Sneakers reach some English port inIndia. I understood thoroughly all the difficulties incident tosuch an enterprise but I had no other choice. It only remained Jordan 13 Flint tomake this last foolish attempt or to perish without doubt at thehands of the Boisheviki or languish in a Chinese prison. When Iannounced my plan to my companions, without in any way hiding fromthem all its dangers and quixotism, all of them answered veryquickly and shortly: "Lead us! We will follow."One circumstance was distinctly in our favor. We did not Cheap Jordan Sneakers fearhunger, for we had some supplies of tea, tobacco and matches and asurplus of horses, saddles, rifles, overcoats and boots, which werean excellent currency for exchange. So then we began to initiatethe plan of the new expedition. We should start to the south,leaving the town of Uliassutai on our right and taking thedirection of Zaganluk, then pass through the waste lands of thedistrict of Balir of Jassaktu Khan, cross the Naron Khuhu Gobi andstrike for the mountains of Boro. Here we should be able to take along rest to recuperate the strength of our horses and ofourselves. The second section of our journey would be the passagethrough the western part of Inner Mongolia, through the LittleGobi, through the lands of the Torguts, over the Khara Mountains,across Kansu, where our road must be chosen to the west of theChinese town of Suchow. From there we should have to enter theDominion of Kuku Nor and then work on southward to the head watersof the Yangtze River. Beyond this I had but a hazy notion, whichhowever I was able to verify from a map of Asia in the possessionof one of the officers, to the effect that the mountain chains tothe west of the sources of the Yangtze separated that river systemfrom the basin of the Brahmaputra in Tibet Proper, where I expectedto be able to find English assistance.
