CARNEY. OKL A.. ENTERPRISE
FINEST OF ALL WATERFALLS
Traveler Must Visit British Guiana
to See the Grandest Cataract
in the World.
A little way back from the coast of
British Guiana the traveler enters
practically unknown land. The ground
breaks sharply up to high plateaus
and rugged mountains and the jungle
throws a green barrier across the
way. The man who would find his
way up the river must be prepared for
rapids and cataracts, for careful pad-
dling, where a mistake means dis-
aster, and for long portage and toil
some climbs. Therefore few men at-
tempt the journey, although the "per-
fect waterfall," five times as high as
Niagara, is there to reward their ef-
fort. Mr. Warfield describes such a
trip and what he found at the end of
"Here was a mighty river, pouring
with a force that suggested terrible
wrath, over a precipice 800 feet high,
down into what seemed unfathomable
"The top of the fall is slightly re-
entrant and measured at the time of
my visit 400 feet across. The distance
from there to the first obstruction is
741 feet, while the total drop is 8
It is therefore nearly five tildes as
high as Niagara, but its finer propor-
tions, its concentration In this one tre-
mendous phenomenon, make it incom-
parably moi'e grand. It is the perfect
waterfall, the most beautiful mani
festation of Nature's lavishness and
Things He Hasn't Done.
I may come home for my 1G8 hours'
leave, and the very thought of civil-
ized life again amuses me. There are
so many "necessary" things I have
not done fdr a long' time. I fervently
hope there will be no sheets on my
bed and the bath-water won't be hot.
It would take a very low temperature
to burn me now. I think I shall live
away in some little corner where I
cannot see any khaki.
I haven't been up a flight of stairs,
seen a carpet or armchair, or tasted
fresh fish for three months. I haven't
looked in a "real" shop, or seen a
smart woman, or heard music, or
walked in anything harder than mud
for three months.
I haven't tasted fresh water or even
"fizz" since I have been away. I
haven't seen any evening paper, I
haven't drunk out of a china cup, I
haven't eaten off a china plate. But
the experience I have been through
has been worth the sacrifice of all
these things, and I wouldn't sell a
moment of it.—From a British Of-
ficer to His Family.
Cure Worse Than Disease.
Chinn (with newspaper)—Here's a
new cure that's being tried for nerv-
ous prostration. The patient isn't al-

Mrs. Chinn—Huh! I'd just as soon
