Photograph by Capt. A. W. Stevens INTO THESE SHALLOW BEDS ON THE HAITIAN COAST, SEA WATER IS RUN, AND THEN EVAPORATED, TO GET SALT In rural regions here life is still strangely primitive. Blindfolded horses, walking in a circle, turnold-fashioned sorghum mills; women hull grain by pounding it. Peasants till small land patches by hand, and the few tools used are crude and clumsy. Wood-turners' lathes are run bybig hand wheels, and many a family's total earthly goods do not exceed five dollars in value.
