Two Americans Saw
Camp la Tarki
Messrs. Allen and Sachtleben, who
went around the world on bicycles, give
the following account of one of their
experiences in Turkestan:
One of the chief incidents of our
pleasant sojourn was afforded by Gov
ernor Ivanoff. We were invited to head
the procession of the Cossacks on their
annual departure for their summer en
campment in the mountains. After the
usual religious ceremony they filed out
from the city parade ground. Being un
avoidably detained for a few moments,
we did not come up until some time
after the column had started. As we
dashed bv to the front with the Ameri
can and Russian flags fluttering side by
side from the handle bars, cheer after
cheer arose from the ranks, and even
the governor and his party doffed their
caps in acknowledgment.
At tho camp we were favored witn a
special exhibition of horpemanship. By
a singlo twist of the reins the steeds
wonld fall to the ground, and their rid
ers crouch down bohind thorn as a bul
wark in battle Then, dashing forward
at full speed, they would spring to the
ground and leap back again into the
saddle, or hanging by their legs would
reach over and pick np a handkerchief.
cap or a soldier supposed to be wound
ed. All these movements we photo
graphed with our camera.
Of tho endurance of those Cossacks
and their Kirghiz horses we had a prac
tical test Overtaking a Cossack courier
in the early part of a day's journey, he
became so interested in tho velocipede.
as the Russians call the bicycle, that he
determined to see as much of it as pos
sible. Ho staid with us the whole
day, over a distance of C5 miles. His
chief compensation was in witnessing
the surprise of the natives, to whom he
wonld shout across the fields to come
and see the tomasha, adding in explana
tion that wo were the American gentle
men who had ridden all tho way from
America. Our speed was not slow, and
frequently the poor fellow would have
to resort to tho whip or shout: "Slow
ly, gentlemen. My horse is tired. The
town is not far away. It is not necessa
ry to hurry so."
The fact is that in all our experience
wo found no horse of even the famod
Kirghiz or Turcoman breed that could
travel with tho same ease and rapidity
as ourselves even over tho most ordina
ry road. Contury.
