)enizens of the Jungle Prowl Between
British and German Armies
in East Africa.
The country through which the Brit

I. C. Smuts are operating in their con
luest of German East Africa is prob
ibly the finest big game field in the
"Every description of buck and other
game," writes a trooper of the South

abound all sorts of wild creatures-- t
lions, leopards, wolves, hyenas, wild 0
pigs, giraffes, also ostriches. 1
"'Tho noises of the night are most
uncanny. Mingled with the howling
of the jackals we hear the laugh of
hyenas and the deep gruntings of pigs.
A horse died the other night. and al
though a sentry was not 20 yards
away, only a part of the carcass was
left at daybreak.
"The worst enemies our horses
and ourselves-have to contend with
are bush lice. These tenacious ver

They fasten on the legs and muscles
of the horses as the latter graze. They
are reckoned to bei a proilfic source of
disease, not only among the animals
but among human he'ings."
SWISS RUN MODEL HOTELS
Hostelries in New Heivetia, Uruguay,
Are a Sample of the Progressive
Methods of the Race.
Wherever the Swiss go they esta1h
lislh good hotels. In Uruguay t hero is
a Swiss colony, called New Ilelvetia,
devoted largely to farming.
The land, which was one of the gar
den spots of UTruguay, was di vided
into small farms and sold to Swiss col
(onists more than fifty years ago at
a low price and on easy terms. The
ordinary products of tho farm have
fotund a wider and wider market, and
in the last few years the dairy inter
est has become noted. Grapes and
other fruits are also extensively cul
tivated. Now that the section is
reached by railways it is becoming
very well known. The good hotels of
fer a pleasant resting place for excur
sionists from Montevideo and Buenos
Aires. The people are well off and
adopt modern methods of living.
Of all the new words that the war
has given us, "slackers" is one of the
surest to serve. Of course, the
word wasn't new in England, but it
had no general currency in America
before we heard it applied to those
who held back from recruiting.
The Continent (Chicago) seizes upon
it as a useful whip in the modern re
ligious world. Jesus knew the slack
ers, says the writer, and lie enjoined
upon them to "let your loins be gird
ed about, and your lamps burning, and
be ye yourselves like unto men look
ing for their Lord." The metaphor de
rives from the flowing robes of the.
Oriental dt'ess, which, loosened and
hanging from the shoulders in times
of relaxation, had to be drawn by a
tight girdle around the ivaist whena
anything was to be done. The wri'tr
observes that Jesus very well knew
that "any Christian 'who ten' ito thle
way of loosentng now and again the
service belt of his lile would soon for
felt the power to tighten up Is belt
to the old notch of thoroughness.
