With it go 8,000 camels, light and heavy artillery, thirty light steel pontoon boats to bridge the Suez canal and thousands of bags of concrete with which to con struct a dam to block Britain's artery to India. May Be Horror. Whether this daring scheme will result in a military horror or in a brilliant achievement remains for the next few weeks to show. The British garrisons are alarmed . and already outposts have been detained in Egypt and are now firmly intrenched In the barren wastes to the east of the canal with the Territorials from Great Britain, which have garri soned the country since the regu lars were taken to Europe. By the way, the Terrtorlal troops now defending Egypt are almost wholly Australian Irish! Germans Direct. The drive over the desert is be ing directed by 54 German offi cers, who obtained the sanction of the Young Turk government, It Is claimed by the political oppo sition, through the medium of enormous bribes paid the ten men of the Turk Kb cabinet! The impression prevails that non-success of the Caucasan cam paign against the Russians has moved Germany to attempt the invasion of Egypt by Turks, with the idea ot drawing the allies' at tention away from the thinning Teuton line In Flanders. The tremendous obstacles to successful achievement of so dar ing a military feat as the capture of Suez canal are undoubtedly hard to picture by those in the United States, thousands of miles away. Parched Sands. Imagine the softest, loosest, driest lake or seashore sand, deeper than shoe tops, and a piti less sun overhead; picture land like that stretching away as far ns the eye carries vision, with here and there sharp rocks bar ring the way, and frequently a sandstorm to toss up myriads of little particles to blind the eyes and cement the throat. One hundred and fifty miles of that land Is the pow erful harrier nature has Im posted between the Suez canal and the fertile acres of Pales tnie. (Contnued on Page Seven.)
