The white rhinoceros, by the way, is
one of the principal objects of the
trip. The ex-presidcut told a friend
so the otl'.er day. He said that if he
vas only able to bag one white rainoc-n-os
he wouldn't feel the journey into
the heart of Africa had been in vain.
A white rhinoceros is an important
resident of juugle land, according to
Mr. Roosevelt. It is the same type of
an individual as the square-mouthed
rhinoceros and is the nearest living
ally to the extinct tichorine or wooly
rhinoceros which existed at the close
of the glacial period.

But Mr. Roosevelt is not a game
butcher. IJe wrote a letter to Secre
ary Walcott of the Smithsonian Insti
tution, in which he declared that, he
"is not in, the least a game butcher."
"I like to do a certain amount of
hunting," the ex-president wrote, "but
my real- and main interest is the inter
est of a faunal naturalist."
Mr. Roosevelt plans to be away from
i he United States two years. Half of
this time will be spent in Africa and
the other half in Europe, visiting at
least three of the big capitals. The
ex-president is really going more as- a
naturalist than as a hunter. History
will record that he set out at the head
of a scientific expedition ouffittcd by
the Smithsonian institution of Wash
ington, which included, in addition to
his 19 year-old son Krmit, three Amer
ican naturalists of note Major Edgar
A. Mcarns, J. I.oring Alden and Ed
mund Heller. The party will make a
collection of mammals, birds, reptiles,
insects and botanical specimens of
central Africa, which will be deposited
in the United States national museum
Leave Middle of March.
Mr. Roosevelt and his party plan
to leave New York about the middle of
this month, going by the Mediterranean
route to Gibraltar and Naples. There
the party will board a steamer of the
German East Africa line for Kodindiui
harbor, Mombasa Island. By the end
of April this port will have been reach
ed, and the party will .then immedi
ately proceed by the Uganda railway
to Nairobi, where six months will be

In Public Service 2. Yearn.
With his retirement as 2Cth presi
lent of the United States, at 50 years
of age. Mr. Roosevelt completes prac
tically 25 years of public service. He
has been in public life almost constant
ly since he was graduated from Har
vard university in lSXf). He served
the people in the capacity of assembly
man in New York state, civil service
commissioner of the United States,
president of the police board of New
York city, assistant secretary of the
navy of the United States, colonel of
the 1st United States volunteer cavalry
in the Spanish war, governor of the
state of-New York, vice president of
the United States, and then as presi
dent. of the United States.
The out-going president is anxious
to be out of the country during the
first half of the Taft administration
for several reasons.-"One 1s that he
feels if he is lost to civilization In the
wilds of Africa it cat) not be charged
that he is dictating to his successor,
and to the man he selected to succeed
To Avoid Dictating;.
Some months before the republican
national convention had nominated Mr.
Taft, Mr. Roosevelt made a statement
in which he said:
"If Mr. Taft is nominated and elect
ed president, which would be very grat
ifying, it would make impossible any
criticism, if I were abroad, to the effect
that I ws dictating to him and being
followed, or that I had dictated and
had been turned down in any sugges
W'herever Mr. Roosevelt goes In his
travels outside of tne United States it
will be a a plain American citizen
and not as the ex-president of the
United States. His tour will be noth
ing like the one General Grant made
after retiring from the .presidency,
General Grant was received in state
by emperors and kings wherever he
went on his tour around the world.
He was feted as no other American
ever was. Mr. Roosevelt will have
none of this.
Are you helping to boost a home enterprise? - '
Are you doubting its soundness?
. If so, why don't you investigate? '
We are prepared to show you.
Rubber planting is destined to become a very extensive
industry. ' ' , .
It is now an exceedingly profitable prusuit and will con
tinue to be so for all time to come.
If you are not posted, we can refer you to absolutely
reliable sources of information.
Why allow the opportunity to pass unheeded? Poverty
is mostly the consequence of neglected opportunities. Wealth
comes as a reward to the wide-awake. The hide-bound pessi
mist Spurns the doughnut, no matter how good, because he
sees only the hole in it, while the optimist eats it with de
light. It is well enough to be cautious, but if your doubts keep
you from inquiring you will never learn the truth.
Why allow outsiders to snatch the op ort unity from un
der your nose? We have inquiries from all parts of United
States, Canada, Hawaii, the Philippines, Ceylon, Africa, Pana
ma and Europe.
If you doubt this statement just come to the office and
we will show you the letters. We are selling two shares of
stock to outsiders where we sell one to our home people
but WE ARE SELLING OUR STOCK, and it's just the same to
us, though we would rather give our home people a chance.
' We would rather see our dividends come right here to
our home town, instead of being scattered over half the globe.
- If you have money to invest why not give us a call?
Unless you are perfectly satisfied we would not expect
you to buy a .single share. . .
You can invest from $10.00 up to your own limit if
you come soon. Only a few weeks more and we may not have
. a single share to sell you on this proposition.
Now is the time. .
