SEVEN Cow-Horse Marines (By ARMINE VON TEMPSKY) In New York Times ol July 16. One of the uniquely interesting and last vanishing aspects of ranch life in Hawaii is the shipping of cattle from ports where the steamer is forc ed to anchor at a distance from (he land. I he majority of cattlemen en come interested. The ship approaches : until the rattling of its anchor chain announces that it has come as near as is deemed safe by the cautious native skipper, who cares little for the add ed distance the unfortunate cattle coil the lasso for the cowboy's next turn. The horseman emerges while other trios pas9 him in cyclonic rushes. All is concentrated action without cessa tion for two or three hours, depend ing on the number and wildness of the cattle to be shipped. One boat is loaded and drawn out while the next Is supplied. The horse men continue their speedy trips across the sand: some of the more artful ani mals begin to resist before the water Is reached and the rider behind shouts Anarchy Looked For Unless Britain Is Able To Intervene i must, swim boat is lowered, and, approaching : KranHiqhoa hi rniiort rmo nr tnUpq n deavor to market their stnnir rmm T wings i turn about, his pommel with the ani- harbors where the boats can dock In I 1? t . 8T.'.

The cattle are ashore more quickly than the horses, and emerge with gleaming skins, alert ears and defiant air, seeking some object upon which to wreak vengeance. Sometimes a splendid bull will pause in doubt be tween horsemen on land and sailors In boat; both are objects of his ire. The water creams about his knees and his tail lashes his side angrily.

Replying to the delegation the Emir said, "Regarding political advisers, I am aware of everything that Is hap pening in Transjordania and I am working for the best interests of my people. As regards a legislative coun cil, I do not want my hands tied as the Syrians tied the hands of my brother Feisul, later on expelling him from Damascus. As to the financial situation, I do not see your object in demanding this information." It is rumored that Emir Abdullah, fearing the consequences of the visit of the delegation, has requested mili tary aid from the acting high commis sioner for Palestine, in the event of revolt on the part of some of the tribes men.

H. TELEPHONES 201202203 LONDON, July 17 (Associated Press Mall) Sir Rider Haggard is of the opinion that Western civilization is by no means so secure as many Westerners believe. "We have an idea that the West is going on forever," he said, lecturing before the Norwich Rotary Club, "but can we be quite sure of that? Those who have studied and know the East; its enormous power of reproduction; Its simple habits of life on the land, and its system of moralities which make every woman think it her duty to have children, know that it contains an enormous potential power which must one day break out. "Whether it can be curbed I do not know, but I have grave doubts. I shall never forget my friend, Theodore Roosevelt, saying when talking of Japan, 'Look out for your Australia; it will be the first place to go.' "If once Japan secures the control of China the outlook for the Western World will be very cloudy." The speaker said he thought our existing civilizations in the end prob ably would go the way of other civili zations that had preceded it. "Who would have thought a dozen years ago," he asked, "that there would be such horrors In the world as we have recently seen in Russia. Even in Ireland it has been revealed that the savage is uncommonly near the skirt of civilized man, and so al ways it will be." American Precision . Example For Britons LONDON, July 12 (Associated Press Mail) As a "nation of shop keepers" Britain perceives that she stands in need of increasing greatly her business with the world generally. Many men have maintained she could best learn how to do this from Ameri ca, and not a few are arguing that she can Decome as prosperous as Ameri ca only by adopting the American fis cal policy of protection. Cut this Is not the view held by the Ripht Honorable L. C. M. S. Amery, M. P., parliamentary secretary to the Admiralty. He believes much can be learned from America, but that the great lesson is not protection. "The most marvelous economic phenomena of the last century is the growth of the United States," writes Mr. Amery. "From a handful of colon ists on the Atlantic seaboard they have grown into a hundred millions of the most prosperous people in the world. They have achieved this amazing re sult by concentrating on one great pur pose; the development of the re sources of their great territory. It is development they have always kept in view, not trade, knowing that trade as an end in itself not necessarily mean development and prosperity, but that development inevitably brings both prosperity and trade. "The resources of the British Em pire are many times greater than those of the lTnjte( States. If only we can concentrate upon that develop ment in the same spirit we shall see in the next generation a growth no less amazing than theirs, and one that would bring a wholly new and incal culable expansion of outward trade and internal development to the country."
