PERIL8 AND PLEASURES OF THE GAME QUEST IN EAST AFRICA. Death from Fever, Poison and Animals, or Captivity In the Jungle Lurk, But in the End the Finest Hunting in the World. Oyster Bay, N. Y. President Roose velt's hunting trip t.o East Africa which Is planned for next year, will decrease the presidential savings some 120,000 to J25.000 at a low estimate, but, Inasmuch as Mr. Roosevelt al ready has been offered more than ten times that amount for his story of the trip, to be written upon his return, it Isn't worrying the family banker. What is concerning all the Roose velt family and the close friends of the president may be summed up as "things that might happen on that East Africa, Where the President Will Hunt. trip." It is no small matter, this 20, 000 miles' journey to the wildest sec tion of the world, where big game is as populous as it has come to be scarce in the "won west." It Isn't so much the lions, elephants, and their associates that are being feared, al though the element of, danger they always present contains the essential zest of hunting with any true sports man. The Journey to the east coast of Africa will be one of the most wonder ful pilgrimages a man of the western world might take. The president will pass through seas and straits which alone could have washed away the tomes of history they have seen writ ten. He will come into contact with customs and people by far the most interesting in the world, and finally, as a sort of guerdon for his wander ing, the traveler will reach Zanzibar (a place which merits its name, Para dise). It has been called the most Interest ing 15 square miles in the world, and appears to merit the description. In its scant area the flotsam and jetsam of the eastern world has gathered. It contains, shoulder to shoulder, In its heterogenous people and life, the ele ments of the finest culture, the deep est ignorance, morality, degeneracy, vice and virtue, more fantastically in terwoven into the life of the place than anywhere else in all the world. Here the president will get his sup plies, guides, servants, porters and other blacks who will be his compan ions on the hunt. From Zanzibar he goes to the chief city of English East Africa and from there plunges into the vast, silent, disease-breeding Jun Ik. 0 i At e Jwmw I ' ' W gle, where a white man goes with the assurance that death, multiform, pes tilent and horrible, lurks in every thicket and stream and tree; a place where the chances of living are re duced to the ultimate natural minimum. Preceded by his blacks, and fol lowed by more of the same, bearing the rather imposing luggage of the ex pedition, and. in bad weather, the head of the expedition In a hammock, the president will enter a world vast ly different from anything he has ever seen. The president will not have nro- ceeded far before rebellion will break out in his train. This kind, however, is more easily settled than miners' strikes, and all may be well. Then lie may be overtaken and cap tured by a native prince, who will re quire beads, wire, brass and the like to keep him from devoting his dis tinguished guest to glutting his appe tite. In the end, all these perils having been safely passed, Mr. Roosevelt will reach the happiest hunting grounds in all the world, where he may shoot lions, hippopotami, specimens of the buffalo, rhinoceros, bok, etc. LEADING GERMAN SUFFRAGIST. Dr. Anita Augspurg Has Served Many Prison Terms for Her Cause. Berlin. Fraulein Dr. Anita Aug spurg, leader of the German claim ants of votes for women in Germany, has served 70 terms in prison for her insistence in behalf of her cause, and probably holds the record. "The Anita," as her followers, call her, recently attracted attention again by her repudiation of the social demo crats in the name of the woman suf frage movement. The socialists have long been looked upon as the especial friends of the advocates of "votes for women." ' The movements' of no other woman in Germany outside of the members ol the royal family are followed more closely by the public than those of Dr. Augspurg. She Is a familiar fig ure In almost every part of the Ger man empire, her mass of short, curly hair, and close-fitting reform garb making her an easy mark for the cu rious. - . It Is Dr. Augspurg's tongue which has landed her so often behind prison bars. She is a fearless speaker, and In a country like Germany her opin ions on the equality of the " sexes are 'regarded as little short of rivolu tlonary. Her latest sojourn in prison was the consequence of a few remarks on the Hamburg police, after witnessing an attempt to quell a street riot. She was a born orator and politi cian. She has that greatest of all gifts for speaking, personal magnet Ism. This German woman Is a lawyer She is practically the mother of the women's movement in Germany. The career of Dr. Augspurg is an ex ample of the triumph of a strong minded woman over the conventions that hedge about the sex in Germany. Practically her whole life has been a preparatory school for the unique po sition which she now holds. She was raised in a family of Jurists. Art Exposition for Russia.

Dainty That Involves Much Work for the Cook. Have a fat, six weeks' old pig care fully dressed, the inside of the ears mouth and tongue cut out. After wash ing inside and out, rub well with a mixture of salt, sage, black and red pepper. Stuff the pig with a dressing made of light bread, butter, salt, pep per, sage and thyme, well mixed, and moistened with milk or water until it is soft, for it will get firmer in cook ing. Then sew up the pig carefully, put in a pan with a little water, and set in a moderately heated oven. Leave the doors open at first. Mix butter and flour in a plate and have a larding mop ready. Mop the pig frequently. As it roasts close the doors gradually. Occasionally pour over It some of the grayy in the pan and turn it over frequently, so that It may brown evenly. Boll until tender the liver and toes, and when the pig is done chop them up and add to the gravy. Roast from two to three hours, according to size. Serve with apple sauce and pickles. Place pig on platter, an apple in its mouth, parsley around it, and take to the table. RICE SURPRISE, WITH SAUCE. Excellent Dessert Dish for the Lunch eon or Dinner. Quarter of a pound of rice, half a pint of water, one pint of milk, one heaping tablespoonful of butter, two tablespoonfuls of sugar, one teaspoon ful of vanilla extract, some jam. Wash the rice In several waters and put it into a saucepan with the cold water. Let it boil quickly until the water is absorbed, then add the milk and butter. Simmer very slowly until the rice is thoroughly cooked and the mixture rather thick. Stir, occa sionally, as it will be inclined to stick to the foot of the saucepan. When ready, remove the saucepan from the fire and add the sugar and flavoring. Rinse out some small cups of tlmbale molds with cold water, three-quarters fill them with rice and make a little hollow in the center. Put a tea spoonful of any nice jam into each, cover and fill with more rice and set aside to cool. When firm, turn out on a glass dish and serve with custard sauce poured round. Puff Paste. Into one quart of sifted flour mix two teaspoons of baking powder and a teaspoon of salt, then sift again. Measure out one teacup of butter and one of lard, hard and cold. Take the lard and rub Into the flour until a very fine, smooth paste, then put in Just enough ice water, say half a cup, con taining a beaten egg, the white of the egg to mix a very Btiff dough. Roll it out into a thin sheet, spread with one-fourth of the butter, sprinkle over with a little flour, then roll up closely in a long roll like a scroll. Double the ends toward the center, flatten and reroll, then spread again with another quarter of the butter. Repeat this operation until the butter is used up, put it on an earthen dish, cover it with a cloth and set it in a cold place, in the ice box in summer. Let it re main until cold, an hour or more be fore making out the crust. You may roll this pastry in -any direction, but you must have nice flour, ice water, and very little of it. Cleaning Woodwork. For natural finished woodwork that has become scratched or dented, like the lower part of doors, surbáses and window sills, there is nothing better than a coat or two of shellac the kind that you can prepare at home by add ing the dry yellow flakes of 95 degree alcohol. It will dissolve in a few hours if it is shaken occasionally, to allow the alcohol freedom in attacking the flakes. Shellac is always a conven ient, form of varnish to have in the house, as it is a simple "healer" for a scratch a dent, or mar on furniture and woodwork. SAVED AT THE CRISIS.
