I S A LAKE OF SCENT. On the Mangishlak Peninsula, in the Caspian Sea, there are five small lakes. One of them is covered with salt crystals strong enough to allow a man and beast to cross the lake on foot; another is as round as any circle and a lovely rose colour. Its banks of salt crystal form a setting, white as the driven snow, to the water, which not only shews all the colours from violet to rosy red, but from which rises a perfume as of violets. Both the perfume and the colour are the result of the presence of seaweeds, the violet and the pink.
