GUI OF BRITISH
(Continued From Pago 1.)
the night the cry of the lion may be
heard in this territory and It is no
uncommon thing for a party of these
beasts to sit outside of a house ull
night and roar. Skins of lions that
have not been scarred In combat
with foes or torn in breaking through
the thorny underbrush are rare. Hav-
ing obtained a good lion skin the hunt-
ers guard it carefully from the rav-
ages of the white atit which will de-
stroy a skin in a night. The lion pre-
fers the plain where his yellow hide
does not contrast with the brush and
In point of danger the natives of
this territory regard the buffalo herds
as the most dangerous to encounter
and where a travelling party of por-
ters will scarce notico the roars of a
lion the sounds of a buffalo herd will
send them Into a panic. This much
dreaded beust is tricky and brave and
a huntsman needs all bis Bk 111 to make
his kill. Wounded the buffalo re-
sorts to a ruse of retreating into the
brush templing the huntsman to fol-
low him. Wheeling suddenly about
the wounded animal charges the on-
coming hunter who unless he sends
a bullet Into the brain of the beast
Is most likely to be gored and trnmnl-
ed to death under the animals hoofs.
In hunting the buffalo it is customary
for the hunter to post bis shikaris In
the tree tops to Inform him of the
trail of the beast.
The hun'ing of elephants is much
restricted in the territory which the
Roosevelt party will cover and the
killing of these inaiuoths is regarded
as little less than slaughter. Modern
rllles make the killing of elephants
easy to accomplish and without much
danger to the hunter. Hunting for
hippopotami! is also limited as the
animal is hard to locate and only
found in remote places along the riv-
ers and lakes. The "hippo" is timid
and not considered dangerous unless
his escape to the water is cut off or
In' is wounded.
The hunt for the rhiiioccrous in this
region is no mean venture for not in
frequently the hunter is bunted and
the angered beast breaks up a whole
"safari" party with one of his terrible
charges. The ' rhino" is very near
sighted but is possessed with a re-
markable sense of smell and acute
hearing; iu fact his attack is entire-
ly guided by these senses. Scenting
danger from afar the infuriated mu-
tual charges in a s'raight line tramp-
ling down underbrush and small trees
in his path as if he were making a
trail through nothing more than a
Mower garden. Caught iu the whirl-
wind rush native hunters sometimes
stand still hoping the animal will
mistake them for a tree and pass on
which the beast not infrequently does.
The charging animal can only be
halted with a well directed bullet
through the tyo or heart.
It is expected that the American
party will make every effort to bag the
much discussed white rhinoceros
which has been killed off from his or-
iginal range in British East Africa.
Besides "rhinos" buftalos and other
large animals the hunting game in-
cludes giraffes leopards zebras and
antelopes. The antelopes of Africa
are most Interesting from a hunts-
man's viewpoint as they are extreme-
ly difficult to shoot. Very shy and
quick it requites an unerring aim to
bring them down and only the best
shots are successful.
In this rare hunting ground the Am-
erican party will find three species of
the hartebeest. the oryx the sable an-
telope the roan antelope the oribi.
the lesser reed buck the water buck
the steinbui k. the eland the greater
and lesser kudu the gc.n iiiel the
bushbuck. All these various species
Of antelopes have been developed es-
caping faculties. Wart hogs jackals
hyenas together with a host of cranes
bustards and other feathered varieties
all help swell the population of the
animal kingdom in this region.
No hunters can ever be said to have
enjoyed all the exepriences of the Af-
rican jungle without an adventure
w Ith dogs w hich roam in packs and
are the dread of the natives. The cry
of these animals is not unlike that of
leopards or smaller game and once
heard the natives fly to the tops of
trees. These mongrel dogs have low-
bodies .covered w ith thick bushy
hair. A hunter wounding a wild dog
must according to the ethics of the
chase pursue and kill the wounded
The fish of the inland lakes in which
is found the "hippo" are unpalatable
and the Roosevelt party will subsist
on llesh and fowl. There is an abun-
dance of wild dm k on Naivaslia 1-ake.
where the hunters will doubtless
spend much time. Once killed all
this quarry must be immediately pre-
pared for transportation and skins
and hides salted and dried to make
There is hunting all the year ro.nul
in ISritiHh East Africa but the sea-
noil of the "big rains" from the end
of January to the end of April is not
one generally chosen by the hunter.
There Is aiso a short rainy spell
about October and November which
however is not regarded as an ob-
stacle to hunting.

AN ANCIENT RACE DYING OUT.
Veddaha of Ceylon Regarded at Rep-
resenting the Stone Age.
The oldest inhabitants of Ceylon are
passing away. These are the fai'ous
Fifty years ago it was estimated
that 8000 of them were still living in
the forests but Dr. Max Moszkowskl
who has recently visited them says
there are only 50 or 60 of them still
alive and that a few more years will
see the end of their race.
The Veddahs have interested an
thropologists because they have been
regarded as the best living types of
the man of the stone age.
The attitude of the Cingalese toward
them Is remarkable. They hold the
poor creatures in great honor and rank
them as belonging to the highest caste
In the island. The reason is that they
are reputed to have descended from
the ancient demons or spirits that
were the original possessors of the
These nomad hunting people never
leaving their forests living under
trees and in caves without knowl-
edge of pottery or any other art ex-
cept that of making bows and arrows
are perishing because of their way of
living and of their Inability to stand
up when stronger folk are pressing
closer around them. They are exact-
ly what they were centuries ago when
people of India came and conquered
their green island.
INURED TO POVERTY AND TOIL.
Natives of Shantung Province Live
Lives of Wretchedness.
Of Shantung province China a cor-
respondent writes: "A little more
than a generation ago one of the
greatest famines in the memory of
man spread devastation in the great
over-populated sections of the west of
this province and now famine faces
the stoical toilers of the land once
again. The Shantungese illustrate
well the law of the survival of the
fittest for such dire poverty only per-
mits the strong ones to live with the
result that we find sturdy men of great
endurance all over this province. Liv-
ing on the land which barely produces
a sufficiency for Shantung's teeming
millions the people have become
hardy for they are hardened 'to all
kinds of privations. Their brains are
deadened by ceaseless toll and this
may account for the reputed backward-
ness of this province ln-progress along
commercial and Industrial lines. A
less long-suffering people would have
a revolution every year. It is an
axiom with westerners that discon-
tent is an absolute condition of prog-
ress and we who live among the
Chinese know there can hardly be a
race In the world so contented as they
are considering their lot. This is one
of the factors which makes the regen-
eiaMon of China such an enormous
The Sickroom Bugbear.
The great bugbear of the sickroom
is monotony. This Is the problem that
every nurse must meet and study
ways and means to prevent. She may
do this in several ways. She ni;iy
alter the appearance of Hie room oc-
casionally by pushing the bed or sofa
to a different part of the room in or-
der to give the patient a fresh out-
look; the cut flowers may be replaced
by a growing plant; old magazines and
books may be removed and new ones
take their place; the pictures may be
ch:nne;. especially those that hang at
the foot of the bed or perhaps a
blank wall may be found to be restful
to the tired eyes. Circle Magazine.
After the dry goods salesman had
completed his business with Cyrus
Craig Centerville's storekeeper he
asked what was going on in the town.
Had any entertainments this winter?"
"No" said Mr. Craig "not one. Sa
lome Howe's pupils have given two
concerts piano and or;-;an and (he
principal of the 'cademy has lectured
twice once on 'Our National Forests'
and once on 'Stones As I Know Them;'
but as far as entertainments are con
cerned. Centerville hasn't got round to
'em yet." Youth's Com) anion.
The Chilly Homes of England.
It is largely our own fault if Eng
land has earned the reputation of an
impossible country to winter In. As a
natievi we are I verily believe the
greatest living amateurs in the science
of keeping our housi s w arm. An
Englishman's home s his castle; it is
also ninety-nine times out of a hun-
dred his refrigerator. The truthx Is
that England In winter time is one of
the chilliest spots on earth. After some
years In America it took me 1 recall
30 months on my return to London to
get warm again. London Chronicle.
Conditions as We Make Them.
In a way we are all children but
destiny Is a good mother when we are
obedient to the laws of honesty and
goodness. We must work for what we
get. We can avoid illness by taking
care of ourselves. We can avoid heart-
aches by grow ing strong mid self suf-
ficient. We ran draw friends to us by
being a good friend. If destiny hits
us ovc the ears or trips us up on the
journey. It is a little rebuke that is
coming to us and which w ill make us
keep our eyes and ears open and
watch the wav bet'er.

Patronize State Banks
There are two reasons why Oklahomans should Jo business
with State Banks.
FIRST Because a;land owner can use his land as a basis of security and
back his money wants with a low rate of interest.
SECOND Because the Oklahoma laws protect the depositor by a guarantee
which husbands his money while on deposit and makes the banks
contribute to a fund out of which in case of failure he is to be paid.
