the Qashqais ; and the settled population of those districts, with the men
left in charge of land under cultivation by the tribe, form a large addition
to the numbers of the actual tribesmen. In many cases the settled vil
lagers detest the tribesmen for plunder of the village flocks, oppression, des

Migration .The nomadic migration takes place twice a year, once up-
country and once down, and varies to the extent of very few days. About

Ala Marvdasht, Afzal, etc., e.g Shish-Buluki and the llkhanis’ followers
generally pass through Chanar-i-Rahdar on their wav upcountry.
Any deviation from the customary lines of migration is most difficult for
the larger tribes, and to block their upward path is not only the easiest, but
the most effective way of putting pressure upon any particular tribe, or on
