IT WILL FEEL LIKE HOME TO T. HLWHEM HE ARRIVES it KHARTIUM TOMORROW
'When Col. Roosevelt reaches
Khartoum, capital city of the Sou
dan desert, tomorrow, it means
that he will be buck in rnih-.i-
tlon—civilization, after nearly a
year of African jungle, the wildest
and savagest In the world.
'His arrival there will also mean
the end of his great hunting trip,
which has aroused the interest of
the civilized world.
At Khartoum is the telegraph,
the railroad, the telephone, shad
nd avenues, cafes, cooling drinks,
(iiitiniK .lies, boulevards, churche*,
banks schools, a zoo, a university,
n race track, golf links, tennis
courts, gardens—everything th.it
makes a mode-« city—strangely
incliided with Mohammedan
mosques, bazars, camel markets,
gum arable markets, silver ma-
kets, and all the characteristics
of Oriental Africa.
Root. HUehins has described the
people of the desert—the natlvol

square blocks, with long diagonal

These diagonal avenues make

Khartoum Is built on the left
bank of the Blue Nile, near where
it flows Into the White Nile, down
which the Roosevelt launch has
come. They call the Blue Nile
blue because its waters are iron
gray, and the White Nile white
because its waters are yellow.
After they have flowed together
the gray and yellow waters don't
mix right away. For miles th<»y

Then there are more villas,
then the sirdar's palace, more
villas, Gordon's palace, a park,
finally the Gordon Memorial col
lege, where 400 Arab boys are
receiving an English education.
South of the city live the native
tribes in their mud and grass
huts. Across the White Nile is
Omdurman with its' gum arable
markets, Rs street of silversmiths,
with their open braziers and an
