REGION OF DENSE FORESTS Stream Broken by Rapids and Water falls and Abounding in Big Game and Snakes Land of Big Animals. New York. Heading an expedition to East Africa, which has as Its ob ject the exploration of the Tana river ahd the hunting of big game, Lady AlacKenrie, the woman huntress. Is lit New York completing details of the trip and arranging to dispose of tro phies obtained In two expeditions she already has made to Africa. Upon, her arrival at Mombasa, Af rica, she will remain several days, su perintending the shipment of nine tons of trophies she has stored there. These Include many rare specimens of hends and skins of animals, and will be presented to the Bronx Zoological museum, the American Museum of Nat ural History, the Smithsonian Institu tion, and other Institutions. One rare trophy Is the head and rkln of a gnranak. an animal with a neck and head like a giraffe, which Is sel dint seen In the open, according to Lady MacKenzie, who shot the beast.

Is one of the most treacherous streams In the world. It Is full of whirlpools, waterfalls and dangerous viplds. At places along lis winding mrse the forests are so dense that told us of huge Ihtfis, great rhinoceroses, hippopota muses, and other great beasts. I want to find out If their tales are true and to get some specimens. I know that big snakes are to be found along the river. for I have seen them. They are what I really fear. After I have supervised the aJp- ment of the trophies, I am going to visit the Masai. I want to take with me a complete surgical and medical outfit. Including a medical man and his assistants. This race, one of the most remarkable In Africa, Is afflicted with an eye disease that closely resem bles trachoma. Unless It speedily ts checked, the tribe will become totally blind In a few years. I also hope to accomplish another mission. The Masai women are practic ing a form of race suicide. They fear that In time the whites will make them and their children slaves and servants. I saw only seven children In the tribe. It Is only a question of a short time before this race becomes extinct, un less they are made to understand the white people no longer make slaves of black people." How Germans Prepared in Africa.

We could not make out what they were doing until they crossed the border. Then we thought they were going to attack the British Africans, Things looked very serious and we de cided to move camp. The rapid ap proach of the blacks forced us to leave hurriedly, but we were able to hide nearly all of our supplies and equipment. "Three weeks later we reached Nai robi and reported what we had seen. The British authorities sent out run ners to learn what was going on. They reported that the German Africans had seized all the water holes and were occupying other strategic points. This was four eeks after we had report ed. A day or so later news reached Nairobi that Germany had declared war. Thus you can see the blacks In Africa had had orders from Germany to act more than seven weeks before war was declared."

"No nurse waited on them, no doc tors administered medicines to stimu late the action of their weakened hearts. They lay on rough board shelves erected around the sides and ends of the cars, or on the floor where even cattlemen would have placed straw If animals were to be carried .no sanitary conveniences were tup- plied ; the patlenti' clothes were stain ed with filth and blood; their feet caked with mud and manure; the! bodies alive with little gray typhus lice the plague of Serbia.

"Our trip from Omsk to the extreme front and back agniu at a time when the Siberian government armies were falling back before the Reds has re- ealed In all Its pitifulness the tre mendous need of Russian hospitals, sanitary trains and dressing stations for every. kind of supplies. Although ?he American Red Cross has been sending train after train to Western Siberia, so vast Is the need that many more trains are necessary to meet even the most primal neces sities.
