Roosevelt's Triumphant Trip Through Africa and Europe Ended In Blaze of Glory Honored Like a King in European Countries San Antonio, Texas, June 18. Wanted: 740.041 farmers. Where to day Is the territory in the United btatets that could put such an an nouncement before the world and make food as the vernacular would express it? There is such a territory In this country Southwest Texas Moreover In making that number of husbandmen comfortable there would not be the slightest crowding. As a matter of fact every one of them would have forty acres; a farm at least four times too Innrn whera the land is ir rigated. Ten acres of land is about all the farmer In Southwest Texas should tackle under Irrigation, for that much he can most profitably cultivate without being in need of help that he! can not get Southwest Texas comprises no less than 37 counties with a total areal extent of 60,000 square miles, or to be exact 32,344,434 acres. Of this vast expanse of hill and prairie there are just 11.13 per cent of the whole. Di vide the remainder of 29,061,647 acres by forty and you will find that the country needs just 740,041 farmers. Economists including Col. Roosevelt, are authority for the statement that the average man can make a fine liv ing for his family on five acres. This, too Jappltea to latitudes where one crop per year Is the rule. In South west Texas it is possible to grow al erops of all the cereals and such vege tables as potatoes, cabbage, onions. Alfalfa gives from seven to nine cuts per year; sorghum will do the same and so will almost every other forage plant Smaller garden truck flourishes throughout the year and it is possible to raise beets, salads, and the .like, to gether in the same bed and repeat the process six times. This really means that the man having ten acres of land has in comparison with his northern colleague at least thirty acres, while forty acres In the hand of one man will be equal to at least eighty else where. Of course, multiplicity of this kind in Southwest Texas depends upon in dustry first and Irrigation second. The farmer with forty acres of averagely good land can get In two crops on all of it if he goes about It properly. To do this he will not need an artificial water supply. But to do the best with his soil he should try to get water on it. This may be done in three ways, Along the rivers he can pump the water on his land, or get it there by gravity; in case there is a "draw" on his land he can Impound enough rain water to supplement very effectively the supply that falls from the clouds, and last, but far from least, ne can dig wells. A shallow well and a gaso line engine, especially If reinforced by a reservoir, will take care of a large acreage and an artesian well will put him high, and dry above ail aaversity in things material. Every one of these 740,041' farmers ! should follow literally the advice to dwell tinder their own vine and fig tree. Moreover they could add the olive. If they had a mind to, not to mention the date palm, the orange. lima and lemon. But not only Southwest Texas would he benefited by this. Throughout the year lettuce In Chicago and at other frtrlA noints would be two-for-flve cucumbers ' two-for-flve. juicy arti chokes ten-a-plece, salad romaine five cents the bunch, strawberries would be en every breakfast table In the land nrrA thA cabbase and onions friends would never lack) their favorite tid bit ROOSEVELT'S TRAVELS.

KAISERIN AUGUST E VICTORIA. especially among the editors of the nationalist press, for on the following day he made his sensational speech at the university of Cairo, denouncing the assassination of Boutros Pasha Ghali, the premier, who had been mur dered but a month before by a nation alist sympathizer. He said that the as sassin stood at the pinnacle of in famy, and that "those who are apolo gizing for or condoning his act occupy the same bad eminence." As the major ity of the students at the university are nationalists, and as Egyptian pol itical conditions resemble a smoulder ing volcano, the speech caused an erup tion. Of course the Colonel came in for his share of the criticism, but at the same time the university con ferred on him its highest honorary de gree "in recognition of his eminent services to humanity." The following day about two hund red students paraded around the ho- the Methodists of Rome. Colonel Roosevelt immedlataely cancelled an engagement to hold a reception at the American embassy. After being the guest of honor at a score of different receptions, the Roosevelts left Rome on April ? for Spain, where Colonel and Mrs. Roose velt had planned to drive over the same route which they had visited ou journey from Spezia to Genoa by was interrupted by hundreds of villag ers who turned out and lined the route to pay homage to the distinguished visitors. On April 1 Colonel Roosetelt . left Genoa for Port Maurizio, where he was given one of the most enthusias tic receptions in Italy. Besides being accorded citizenship honors, a new boulevard in the town was named af ter him. Three days later he held the famous conference with Gifford Pin chot in the forest adjoining the town. Although speculation has been rife ever since as to what actually trans pired, the talk of these two champions of conservation is as much a mystery as ever. Journeyed to Venice. From here the Roosevelt party Jour- (American News Service) New York, June 18. When the S. S Kaiserin Auguste : Victoria steamed slowly 'into New York' harbor today with Colonel Roosevelt and his fam ily aboard, and docked at her pier in Hoboken one of the most remarkable and spectacular journeys ever made by an ex-president of the United States or any private citizen of this country, came to an end. Only the famous European tour of General Grant could be in any way compared with it, and this lacked the pyrotech nic features which characterized the Roosevelt tour. One year, two months and twenty-seven days have elapsed since the ex-president sailed from New York for Africa, and scarcely a day has passed that he has not been in the public eye. Only when he and his party were hidden In the thickest jungles of the Dark Continent, hund reds of miles from a newspaper cor respondent or a telegraph station, were the news dispatches abbreviated and even then the killing of an ele phant, a lion or some other denizen of the forest by the mighty nimrod, was duly chronicled. Never Touched Him. Despite the predictions of alarmists that he would succumb to fever or the .poisonous sting of some jungle in sect, the proverbial Roosevelt luck re mained with him, and he emerged from the jungle in excellent health to find the royal arms of Europe extend ed to him. The doors of kings were thrown open. European monarchs vied with one another in entertaining their dem ocratic guest. His transit from city to city and country to country partook of a nature of a triumphal tour. The press in every country heralded his approach and at every station where he stopped he was greeted by the enthusiastic cheering of large crowds. In every country through which he passed he was welcomed by Its rulers and leading statesmen, and gave the conclusion of his trip an official tinge i by acting as special ambassador of the United States to the funeral of the late King Edward, of England. His entertainment, however, by European royalty was not the most spectacular feature of his trip. These i Incidents were furnished by air. Roose velt himself, and began on his emer gence from the jungle. He had scarce ly thrown aside his kahki suit for his frock coat and high hat. when he de livered his famous speech at Cairo criticising the Egyptian Nationalists, and denouncing the assassination of Boutros Pasha Ghali. The storm of criticism was still at its height, when the news was cabled that the ex-president had cancelled his audience with the Pope, on account of certain con ditions that the Vatican imposed. This was quickly followed by his re fusal to visit the Methodist Mession ! in Rome. Address at Sorbonne. In Paris he delivered a lecture at the Sorbonne, emphasizing the grav ity of the race suicide question. This was followed by lectures In Christiana and Berlin. The next bomb shell fell in London, where, after being extend ed the freedom of the city at Guild hall, he criticised England's rule of Egypt, and brought down a storm of criticism from all sides. In delivering bis last lecture at Oxford University on June 7, he was compelled to stop owing to an affection of the throat. The high regard in which he is held by the leading educators of the world is reflected in the honors conferred on him by the various universities. The University of Cairo conferred on him the highest degree in that insti tution, from King Frederick's Univer sity at Christiana he received the de gree of Doctor of Philosophy; at Ber lin University he received a similar honor; Cambridge honored him with the degree of Doctor of Laws, and Ox ford conferred the degree of Doctor of Civil Law. The scientific results of the expedi tion have exceeded all expectation, nearly 120,000 specimens having been gathered. Of mammals 1,897 speci mens have been secured ranging in size from elephants to mice. There are 4,000 birds in the collection, 2,000 reptiles and 500 fish, not to mention the enormous miscellaneous collec tion. Colonel Roosevelt alone is cred ited with 8 rhinoceroses, 9 elephants, 7 lions, several j'lraffes. 4 wildebeasts, 4 hippotami, S buffaloes, 5 topi and 4 elands. Taxidermists in Demand. Not more than half the specimens have arrived and taxidermists are in demand at the National Museum. It was during his last term in office that Colonel Roosevelt announced his intention of hunting wild game in Af rica at the close of his term. Preparations of a most elaborate scale were made, and arrangements were completed with the Smithsonian institution who have reaped the scien tific value of the expedition. On March 23rd, accompanied by his son Kermit, Major E. A. Mearns, U. S. A.; Prof. Edmund Heller and J. Al den Loring, he sailed from New York on the S. S. Hamburg of the Hamburg-American line. His admirers gave him a great send-off, and the vessel was escorted down the bay by a large number or gauy decor atea craft, while the guns in the harbor fired a farewell calute. On April 4 th the Roosevelt party reached Naples where they embarked on the steamer Admiral and proceeded via the Suez Canal to Kilindini Har bor, Mombassa, in British, East Africa. The party then took the Uganda rail way for Nairobi, reaching their desti nation on April 26. On account of this place being on . the direct line of the Uganda railway, the base of supplies was established here and the party proceeded into the jungle to the south of the camp. News Was Very Scarce. Colonel Roosevelt and his party were entertained by a number of prominent Englishmen who have estates in this section and natives ex tended every possible assistance. The result was that when they returned to Nairobi in December, they had an unusually large number of specimens. During this time, the general public had to be content with the news that filtered into Nairobi, where it was gobbled up greedily by the mass of newspaper men. and cabled in more or less questionable form. On December 18, th& party broke camp at Nairobi and started by Car avan across Uganda. Considerable hunting was done on this trip, and when the party arrived at Renk on March 11. 1910. on the White Nile, they had thousands of specimens. Here the steamer Dal was placed at their disposal by General Sir Regi nald Wingate, the British Sirdar, and the party started on the 300 mile journey up the Nile to Khartoum, where the Colonel planned to meet his family, from whom he had been separated for nearly a year. Waiting on His Word. ' Politicians throughout the United .'jates looked forward eagerly for some statement from the ex-president when he emerged from the jungle at Renk, relative to political conditions in this country. All were anxious to know his attitude on the Ballinger Pinchot controversy, Wie Payne-Ald-rich tariff bill, and, in fact, what he thought of the Taft administration as a whole. But they were all disap pointed. The ex-president refused ab soiutely to discuss European and Am erican politics, and stated further that any interviews purporting to come from him relative to the political sit uation, could be accepted as false. Nothing of importance marked the trip down the Nile, and Colonel Roose velt busied himself with the prepara tion of his European speeches. On Monday, May 12th, they reached Khar toum, where Mrs. Roosevelt and her youngest daughter greeted him. The entire party was given an elaborate reception, and the Sirdar's palace on the banks of the Nile vas placed at his disposal. Two days later the Roosevelts left Khartoum on a special train for Cairo, stopping off at As souan and Luxor, for the purpose of sight-seeing. On March 24 the party reached Cairo. Here Mr. Roosevelt was. giv en a hearty reception, not only by the native element, but by a large number of American tourists, who were stop ping at Shepherd's hotel. Tbe Col onel was entertained by the Khedive, while Mrs. Roosevelt and her daugh ter were the guests of the Khedivah. It was here that Oscar Strauss, am bassador to Turkey, and a member of the Roosevelt cabinet, met his former chief. Holds a Reception. At the request of a large number of American tourists, visiting that por tion of Egypt, Colonel Roosevelt held a reception on March 26 at Shepherd's hotel, where he shook hands with about 2CO of his countrymen. As the press of that country is ex tremely radical, Colonel Roosevelt has been the subject of a great deal of criticism at the njinds of various edit ors on account of some of his expres sions in Khartoum, but on March 27 all parties "buried the hatchet," when the ex-president entertained twelve ed itors, representing practically the en tire Arabian press of Egypt, and told them his views respecting Moslems and Christians. All his guests agreed that they had been misinformed, and voted the Colonel a good fellow. But his popularity was short lived, tel where Mr. Roosevelt was stopping j neyed to Venice, their last stopping place on Italian son, ana on me muer noon of April the 14th. they departed for Vienna- They remained in Aus tria two days during which time the Colonel made several calls on the aged and aristocratic Emperor Frans Josef, and was the guest of honor at a din ner tendered by that monarch. They left for Budapest on tha morning of. April 7. The party remained Itf the capital city of Hungary two days, and on the occasion of a reception tendered the Colonel by the Hungarian parlia ment he made onetof his characteris tic speeches scoring'the "sneering re actionaries" and vaporing sentimental ists at home." From Budapest the journey was continued to Munich, where the famous hunter was wel comed by Prince and Princess Leo pold of Bavaria. But the stop here was very brief, and on the following morning he arrived in Paris. He Reaches Paris. His stay in the French capital last ed one week and was one round of receptions and sight-seeing trips. All the wealthy Americans' who make the gay French city their' home, threw open their doors to their? distinguish ed countryman, and the leading French statemen and scholars, inclu ding President 4Fallierei paid him un usual honors. On April 23, he delivered his first scheduled European "lecture . entitled "Citizenship in a Republic," at the Sorbonne, which was attended by all the members of the French cabinet, 90O students from, the university of crying "Down with Roosevelt," and "Vive Egypt." Two days later the Colonel and his family sailed from Alexandria enroute for Naples. He was 'given an enthu siastic send-off, in spite of his speeches at Cairo and Khartoum, and as . one correspondent expressed it 'his depar ture from Egypt was like his arrival in the country. He was the biggest figure in the country as soon as he came within its borders, and he leaves it as the one dominating figure." On Saturday, April 2, Roosevelt and party arrived Naples where they were greeted by thousands of Italian and American tourists. At this time arrangements had been made for an audience with the king on Monday and a visit to the Vatican on Tuesday. Then came the first sensation of the European trip. Cn Sunday April 3. Mr. Roosevelt announced that he had called off the engagement with the Pope, owing to the fact that the Vait can imposed certain restrictions, on his conduct while in Rome, which made the audience impossible. Fol lowing on the heels of a similar action by former Vice President Fairbanks, it createtd a considerable stir. Arrives in Rome. Colonel Roosevelt reached Rome on the afternoon of April 3, and was wel comed by Mayor Nathan and Ambas sador Leishman. The following day he called on King Victor and that eve ning he and his family were the guests of the king and queen at the Quirinal. The Vatican Incident was seized by the Methodists of Rome as a direct slap at the Pope, and following an inflammatory statement issued by (Continued on Page Six.) Are Tout Getting: What Due Tou?
