Theodore Roosevelt in Egypt
To tho Editor of tho Manchester
Guardian. Sir: When tho news
reached us at Cairo that Mr. Roose
velt, ex-president of tho great Amer
ican republic, had agreed to givo a
lecture before tho Egyptian Univer
sity, our young university students
were delighted at tho idea. They
looked forward to an opportunity of
listening to the sage advice of a' man
who had been one of tho successors
of Washington, who freed the United
States from tho English yoke! They
thought that whether or no ho en-

Ideal Home or Investment
My fruit farm, which I am offering for sale at a very low figure,
contains 100 acres of the finest fruit land in Southwestern Arkansas.
The price is so low and tho location so good that whoever buys this
farm is bound to make a profitable investment.
Tho location is ideal for fruit growing near to a first-class mar
ket without which the finest fruit producing land would be ren
dered unprofitable. It is situated threo miles from Dequeen, Ark.,
one of the principal railroad points in that state, and at the foot
hills of tho Ozark Mountains.
FRUIT PICKED ON THIS FARM IS SHIPPED DIRECT TO
KANSAS CITY AND PLACED ON SALE THE FOLLOWING
MORNING. Kansas City is the greatest market city of the south
west, and the prices received there are tho very best.
This section of Arkansas produces the finest flavored Elberta
peaches grown anywhere, always in demand and commanding tho
My farm has. 2 8 acres in one year old Elberta peaches in fine
growing condition. As soon as these trees come into bearing three
crops of peaches will oasil pay for tho land at tho price I am ask
ing. Besides this I have G acres in bearing orchaTd peaches,
apples and plums.
Of my farm, 180 acres are cleared and in cultivation. The land
is of good quality and is this year planted in corn, cotton, sugar
cane, sweet and Irish potatoes, cow peas, peanuts, and garden
vegetables. About forty acres of good alfalfa land. Some good
timber. Good improvements. Good water. Healthy locality. R. F. D.
This farm" is a money-maker, but I am past 70 years of age and
getting too old to develop it. Besides I have other interests de
manding my attention. This is a fine opportunity for a younger
man to stop in and make some money in a few years' time. Tho
price is so reasonable that you will bo surprlsod when I quote you
my terms In a direct letter. I will sell this farm if bought within a
short time, at less than one-half the price of the commonest farm
lands up north. This farm will bear the strictest investigation you
can make. I invito correspondence from any one seeking to better
their condition, or wishing to make a splendid investment.

couraged them to go on with their
struggle for liberty, ho would at
least say an appreciative word of
their effort towards light and their
desire for education and for scientific
His speech at Khartoum was a
first disappointment, and cooled their
interest in him. He exhorted the
Soudanese to accept the. English
regime, which he represented to them
as tho most liberal and humanitarian
any nation had imagined. Ho for
got that the Soudan was an Egyptian
province and that the English had
no more right there than in Egypt.
Nevertheless it was hoped that at
Cairo he would mend his manners.
Tho result was a' second, still great
er, . disappointment for his friends.
Ho said everything- at Cairo that he
ought most carefully to have left
unsaid. He rushed into tho question
of the assassination of Boutros
Pasha. His speech gave us the im
pression that he had been primed by
tho English to advise us to abandon
our claims and to a'ceept English
rule, resignedly, if not joyfully, all
hopo of a constitution being de
ferred for several generations! The
speech when it was published at once
caused genera! Indignation, and pro
tests were drawn up and sent to Mr.
Roosevelt the same evening by our
committee of the national paTty, by
the students of the high schools, and
by all the political associations. Next
day a great indignation meeting was
held under the chairmanship of our
vice president, AH Bey Kamel, at
which several members of the legis
lative council were present, including
our great orator Abaza Pasha; and
after it those who had taken part
in it went on, with flags flying, to
make a manifestation against Roose
velt under his windows at Shep
heard's hotel. He was greeted in
the same way in Alexandria at the
railway station and on the quays.
We were not, therefore, surprised
that he should have made another
attack on us in London. We all ex
Nevertheless the ferocity of his
latest attack on a whole nation has
surprised us. The sin of our nation
in his eyes has been that it seeks
to free its territory and demands the
natural right to self-government
and this from Mr. Roosevelt, who
made war on Spain to oblige the
Spaniards to evacuate Cuba and the
Philippines! Mr. Roosevelt seems to
be one of those who divide the hu
man race into two sections, a su
perior and an inferior, and would
have the one be slave to tho other.
Wo do not understand by what right
he counts us among those whose
function it is to serve. Is it because
our nation was the earliest to civi
lize the world? Is it because we are
the most ancient race known to his
tory? We are quite sure that Mr.
Roosevelt's opinion on this head Is
peculiar to himself and that his fellow-citizens
will be less than pleased
at a pronouncement so unworthy of
a citizen of tho greatest republic of
How is it possible for one brought
up in the tradition of liberty and
democracy to reproach Englishmen
with their "weakness, timidity, and
sentimentality, qualities which may
be far more disastrous than violence
and injustice," and this after Den
shawl? What means does he pro
pose should be put in practice
against us? Is it to be lynch law
for us? Are we to be exterminated
like the redskins of America or the
blacks of Australia? Mr. Roosevelt
allows himself the airs of a man su
perior to us nil. He would teach
each nation in turn what it is to do.
His lecture at the Sorbonno was a
fine example. And now in order to
have his revenge on us Egyptians
he advises England to use violence
to us, even injustice! This from a
man who has spent a few hours only
In Egypt and about a people differ
ing from his own in language, man
ners, and religion!
However, we have one reason to
thank Mr. Roosevelt, for in making
the indictment against us ho indicts
at the same time the British occu
pation. He has shown it up for the
failure it has been, and Englishmen
can hardly be pleased at the heavy
judgment 'pronounced upon their
work, the work they used to boast
of so vaingloriously as "the great
work of Cromer." That noble lord
ought to be even less satisfied with
Mr. Roosevelt than ourselves. What,
we wonder, does he think about it?
As for ourselves, we shall continue
to fight on, sure of the sympathy
of the liberals of all lands, and most
of all of the Americans. Yours, etc.,
Chief of the Egyptian National Party.

William B. Ridgely, former comp

Eleanor, aged six, had been going
to school only a few weeks. She
had learned to raise her hand if she
"wanted anything. One day she put
this into effect when che was sent to
the chicken house to get the.. eggs.
Just as she reached the chicken
house door her mother heard her
say, "All you chickens that have laid
an egg, raise your hands." The Delineator.
"Joseph," said his mother, re
provingly, "I should think you'd be
ashamed to be in the same class with
boys so much smaller than yourself."
"Well, mother," replied Joe, "I
look upon the matter a different way
altogether. It makes me feel fine
to see how proud the small boys
are to be in the class with a big
boy like me." The Delineator.
