KILLED nY KEJIMIT ROOSEVELT.
Gondokoro, Sudan, on the upper
Nile, March 1. Colonel Roosevelt and
his son, Kermit killed some 500 specl
ments of large mammals In their hunt
ing expedition for the Smithsonian in
stitution. The bag includes the fol
lowing: 17 lioii6, 11 elephants, 10
buffaloes, 10 black rhinoceroses, 9
white rhinoceroses, 9 hippopotami, 9
giraffes, 3. leopards, 7 cheetahs, 3
giant elands, 3 sables, 1 sitatunga and
All these were killed in the interest
of science, and the specimens will be
disposed ot accordingly, the greater
number going to the Smithsonian in
stitution. Mr. Roosevelt will retain
not moro than six trophies for himself.
From the point of importance, tho
most highly prized game may be rated
as follows: First, the giant elands, the
first complete specimens of which
family are now being taken from the
country; second, the white rhinocer
oses; third, the bongos, the first to be
stalked ana killed by a wnite man;
and, fourth, tho sitatunga.
Take Thouanil of Bird.
The naturaJists secured a remarka
ble selection of thousands of birds.
The result3 in this line have been
most gratifying and science will be
enriched by several new species and
an enormous series of the smaller
mammals of Africa. The game taken
and the collections made constitute a
world's record for a similar period of
hunting and scientific research in Af
rica, and the American museums will
receive the greatest collection of Afri
can fauna in existence.
All agree that too much praise can
not be accorded R. J. Cunninghame,
the Englishman, whoso management
of the expedition was as nearly per
fect as could be conceived.
Colonel Roosevelt will now devote
his time to writing, including the
preparation of the addresses which he
is to deliver in Europe. He will do
no more hunting unless during the
trip down the Nile chance throws in
his way an opportunity to secure some

Ogden, Utah, March 2. Traffic by
way of Ogden is as completely tied
up as ever before in the history of
the country. The flood- situation on
the Southern Pacific west of here re
mains unchanged. There is little
likelihood that traffic will be resumed
within the next 24 hours. The great
est damage is at Loray, 130 miles
west of ugden, where 150 feet of tho

You struggled blindly for my soul
And wept for me such bitter tears.
That through your faith my faith grew
And fearless of the coming years.
For In the path of doubt and dread
You would not let me walk alone.
But prayed the prayers I left unsaid
And sought the God I did disown.
You gave to me no word of blame,
But wrapped me in your love's belief,
Dear love, that burnt my sin like flame.
And left me worthy of your grief.
