"I defy your Eminence to prove it," cried Treville, with his Gascon freedom and military frankness; "for one hour before, Monsieur Athos, who, I will confide it to your Majesty, is really a man of the highest quality, did me the honor after having dined with me to be conversing in the saloon of my hotel, with the Duc de la Tremouille and the Comte de Chalus, who happened to be there."

The Chalus highway is one of the most dangerous in Iran, frequently closed by avalanches and with many accidents on its multitude of curves through the mountains.
Chalus was selected from the line IFLA 1279 supplied by the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), Aleppo, Syria, and selected for adaptation to Western Australian conditions and low concentration of the neurotoxin 3-(N-oxalyl)-L-2,3-diamino propionic acid (ODAP) in the seed, at Northam, WA, in 1994.
Chalus yielded on average 5% more than `Lath-BC' in 15 trial sites across southern Australia.
The ODAP concentration in the seed of Chalus has been shown to be consistently low (0.09%), in comparison with Lath-BC (0.16%).
Chalus can be used as a multipurpose crop for direct grazing, hay or silage production, green manuring, or grain production.
