BREWSTF.R HE.RAI2) T Scene In Alglere. (Prepared by the N'atJonat Geographio Society, Washington. D. C.) HE long, sweeping curve of a crescent bay--the storied Bay of Algiers--here fringed with yel- low sand, there, at one end, edged with gleaming black rocks, and everywhere backed by the steep slopes of a semi-circular chain of low hills rising abruptly from the water's edge and crowned with white villas in ver- dant gardens flaming with Bougain- villea and poinsettia. Behind the hills lies the narrow, fer- tile plain of the MlfldJa, in spring- time blazing with the varied hues of wild flowers, the yellow of oranges, the green of cornfields and vineyard. Towering above the plain In rugged grandeur the mighty chain of the At- las mountains, seeming to support the heavens on their snow-clad shoulders. And the clouds gather round their peaks and leave the sky clear and blue, almost as blue as the waters of the Mediterranean below. At one end of the bay are the spa- cious harbor, the busy wharves, and the terraced houses of a white city climbing to the hilltop. Algiers, tile White Clty l Its story runs from Hercules and the Golden Apples to the Hesperides through the forgotten chronicles of Numtdlan. Roman, Vandal, Byzantine, Arab and Turk to the last of the Bourbon kings, to Napoleon III, and the French re- public. Not a century ago it was the haunt and headquarters of the cruel- est, most bloodthirsty pirates that the world has ever seen; today tt Is a bright and beautiful city of moderh France. ) Alongside Its quays lie great steam- ers being loaded with the produce of a bountiful land; its wharves are piled high with cask and case. Immediate- ly over Ihem rises a hlgh, cliff- like wall pierced with caves--mer- chants' warehouses and offices in vaults. Two Contrasting Quarters. , Along the summit of this wail stretches the beautiful Boulevard de la Republtque, the beginning of a quarter that might rival the best blt of Paris between the Opera and the Seine, a quarter of well-built streets, where the broad sidewalks shelter under arcades, of shady squares where white mosques front busy cafes and palm trees wave before the elec- tric trams that link the town with the suburbs stretching around the curving bay. This is the quarter of theaters, ho- tels, and commercial offices, of attrac- tive shops, of crowded streets where automobile and electric tram dispute the rlght-of-way with fee-horsed carts. Well-dressed European men and short-skirted, silk-stocktnged French girls pass veiled women and stately Arabs In flowing burnooses. But a short distance back from the seaward wall the level ceases and the gayly colored, crowded houses climb on each other's shoulders up tile steep hillside, as if striving to look over their neighbors' heads out to sea. Here Is the native quarter, and In it dwelt the pirate population that lived by bloody crime on the face of the waters. Every being tn It--man, woman and child, Moorish pasha and Christian slave---had a personal in- terest In watching each sail that lift- ed above the distant horizon. It might be an Algerlne rover loaded with plunder and chained captives. It might be the herald of a Franklsh fleet coming to batter down tile ptrate stronghold and set free the slaves.
