ROOSEVELT AT KHARTUM
EX-PRESIDENT IS AGAIN IN TOUCH WITH CIVILIZATION, HOMEWARD BOUND Greeted in Historic Egyptian City by His Wife, Daughter and Hundreds of Correspondents and Friends---Chronological Review of a Re markable Expedition Khartum. Egyptian Sndan.--Ex-Pres ident Roosevelt is again back in toiuch with civilization and is at this place as the guest of the Egyptian and Ene lish governments. being entertained at the governor general's palace by Gen. Sir Reginald Wingate. He was met here by Mrs Roosevelt and Miss Ethel and by a host of American and European correspondents and numer ous delegations of political and other friends from the United States In fact this historic town Is literally filled with visitors brought here to greet the returning traveler. With his arrival at this place, Col. Roosevelt completed one of the most notable journeys through the wilder ness of Africa that has been underta ken since the days of Livingstone and Stanley. It was a remarkable jour ney both in number of animals slain and preserved as specimens, and be cause of its lack of accidents and 4 f- 7RIS.ROO.LVEtT 4 D IYA5S E7IWEL ` r .

Rooseevlt has passed, comes out of the jungles loaded with I malaria and fever germs. Up to the I present time, neither Col. Roosevelt nor any of his party have shown any t symptoms of having contracted any of the numerous contagious diseases. Gen. Sir Reginald Wingate pro vided countless ways for the enter tainment of his distinguished guest. Representatives of the many tribes of the desert have been gathered here into one great encampment, and for Col. Roosevelt's entertainment, have indulged in every possible form of native amusement, giving dances, races, etc. The town of Khartum is a mass of color. Flags of Egypt, England and America are everywhere, and the ex president has probably appreciated nothing more than the opportunity of visiting this historical spot. Khartum is virtually built arouna the grave of "Chinese" Gordon. The city itself is a gigantic monument to that soldier's deeds and his heroic death. In the center of it stands his effigy In bronze, mounted on a camel, gazing with fixed eyes out toward the desert which mocked him during the terrible year that he lay there waiting for relief. Behind the statue stands the British governor's palace, an imposing structure in the Gothic style, typical of British power and British permanence. Name Gordon Everywhere. Not far away is the Gordon Memorit al college, a school built with funds raised by Gen. Kitchener by subscrip. tion throughout Great Britain. in Shitch the Sudanese newer generation is trained for service in the govern. !ent which conquered its fathers. I-.vcryw here throughout the city the ranme Gordon appears There is the Gordon hotel, the Gordon drive ano up the White Nile the Gordon tree. Cordon's memory will live so long as Khartum exists The British have transformed the city of his death Inrt, a memorial to his glory that can laugh at time. Khartum stands at the confluence of the White and Blue Niles, and some day with the development of the wil. derness south of it will become a me tropolis as important to the com merce of Africa as Chicago is to the commerce of North America. Prop erly speaking, however, the city Itseft does not extend beyond the banks of the Flue Nile. The river passes directly through the city, and along its banks, fronted by the barracks of the British soldiers, lies a magnificent driveway three miles in length. British Policy Is Seen. Northwest of Khartum is Omdur man, the city occupied by the Mahdi after the death of Gordon and the scene of the licentious revelries that eccupied the native soldiery up to the time that they were confronted and overwhelmed by Kitchener. The BIrit ish, true to their policy of coloniza. tion, have not attempted seriously to interfere with Moslem customs here. The ruins of the Khalifa's body guard he~idquarters, the military prison, the remnants at the Arab fortifications have all been allowed to stand. Still further north is the field of Kerreri, the shambles in which Kitch ener with mathematical exactitude slashed to pieces the Arab forces. The battle was one of the bloodiest in modern history. It was marked on the Mohammedan side by a courage and ferocity almost superhuman, and on the side of the British by a skill and coolness that was in itself a tribute to Anglo-Saxon civilization.

KILLS BIG MOOSE WITH .LAST BULLET DILL DOUGLASS, AN OLD MAINE GUIDE, HAS EXCITING EX PERIENCE. TRAILS THE ANIMAL 18 DAYS; Slays the Charging Moose with Last of His Cartridges-Nearly Freezes to Death, But the Hide Saves Him. Bangor, Me.-The longest moose hunt on record in Maine is credited to William Douglass of Eustis, who now, at the age of 87, still pursues the call ring of guide for hunters, and kills his full share of game every season. Douglass was born in the woods of Maine and has never been out of the shade of the pines for longer than a few days at a time. All he knows he has learned in the woods, and he is as much at home in the depths of the wil derness as any bear or wildcat. He can tramp for days without tiring. The long moose hunt upon which rests much of the fame of Old 1111il Douglass lasted 1S days, but it yielded ! a prize that paid him well for all his work and exposure and for the danger he encountered at the last, when the bull charged upon him and fell before the last shot in his rifle. It was a cold, snowy morning when IBill started to tramp down his moose -a difficult undertaking for any man -but he was used to cold, hunger and hardship, and made up his mind that if anything worth $500 was wander ing around in the woods he wanted it. Completely equipped and with pro visions for ten or twelve days, he started to find the moose tracks, and soon came upon just what he was looking for-the tracks of a large bull. So familiar is he with moose and their ways that he can tell from the size and shape of the tracks and from other indications nearly the weight and height of the animal and also its sex. When followed by a hunter a moose for the first few days will keel) miles away; after that lagging along, just out of hearing distance. Finally, when nearly tired out and enraged at pqr suit, the animal will turn and make a furious fight if not dropped by a good shot. For 12 days Douglass hung on I the trail of the monster moose, and for 12 cold nights he slept in the woods. The morning of the 13th day he found him out of food and suffer ing from rheumatism, but he had no idea of quitting. He shot a buck deer that gave him four days' food, and kept on after the big game. On the 17th day he caught sight of the moose Charging Down Upon His Like a Run. away Locomotive. several times, and saw that he was pretty well tired. On the 1Sth day he noticed blood on the trail, indica ting that the game could not hold out long. At 4 p. m., that day the hunter heard a loud bellowing, and the next instant saw the moose charging down upon him like a runaway locomotive. SUp went Bill's rifle and seven shots Swere sent in rapid succession at the bull, but none of them seemed to have much effect. In three more jumps the bull would be upon him, and there . stood Bill, his back against a tree, with only one cartridge left in the magazine. Just as the great antlers seemed swinging over his head B111 t took steady aim and sent his last shot at the moose. It missed the head, where he had intended it to go, but t served just as well, for it plowed the Sentire length of the backbone, cutting the hide open as cleanly as if it had been done with a knife, and the bull . dropped in his tracks directly at the hunter's feet. It was a monster, weigh ing 1,225 pounds, and said to be, next to the one shot at King Bartlett's d lake, the largest moose ever killed in 1 Maine. n That night Bill Douglass would have .s frozen to death had it not been for the moose hide. He rolled himself r- in all his blankets and then wrapped himself up in the warm hide, so that 's slept as snug as a bug in a rug PUBLISHED EVERY WINTER Famous Cough and Cold Prescription Has Cured Hundreds Here.
