NOMAD LIFE AND FOSSIL TREASURES OF MONGOLIA LOOKING THROUGH THE TELESCOPE OF THE EXPEDITION'S TRANSIT These Mongols had never before seen a telescope and would gaze through it by the hour. They would give any of their possessions, not excluding a wife, to obtain field glasses. GUIDES, INTERPRETERS, AND HUNTERS Mongol caravan men and Chinese servants, by their loyal support, did much toward making the Expedition successful. Tserin (left) was an excellent rifle shot. Note chopsticks in the felt case, over knee.
