Scarcely less interesting than ' his
bunting trip In Africa , and at times
almost us exciting , were the adven
tures of Col. Theodore Roosevelt in
Europe. There he desired to bo treat-
fid as a man of letters and science ,
rather than as a sportsman , nnd his
desire was gratified. But In addition ,
Europe insisted on receiving him as
the most distinguished American of
feob .M" the time , and everywhere ho wont
honors wcro showered on him. Em
perors , kings , princes nnd all manner
of royalties and nobility greeted him ,
dined him and toasted him , and the
people in nil the lands that ho visited
turned out in vast throngs to see him
And cheer him.
In Paris , Chrlstlanla , Berlin and Ox

the effect that the pope would grant

Mr. Roosevelt thereupon canceled the
pinna for a general reception to which
the Methodists had been invited.
Thus , with his usual luck and facility
for "coming out on top , " ho had the
best of the matter all around and his
conduct was generally commended all
over the world.
Mr. and Mrs. Roosevelt and Kermlt
wore received by the king and queen
of Italy and spent some days In that
country. The colonel and his wife vis
ited Venice and traveled once again

on their honeymoon , and next Mr.
Roosevelt visited Vienna and Budo-
dined him and showed him the Gor

tomb he was ono of the remarkable
crowd of royal personages and distin
guished men that followed the gun
carriage on which Edward's coffin was
borne. After the funeral ho wan re
ceived by King George and Queen
; uary and by the widowed queen
mother , and In a quiet way made nec
essary by the mourning of the nation
much attention was shown him. This
culminated , In London , by a reception
In the Guild Hall , at which the free
dom of the city in a gold casket was
presented to him.
Ho was the guest , thereafter , of
several prominent Englishmen , and
on June 7 ho delivered the Romanes
lecture nt Oxford , which had been
postponed by the demise ot the king.
This was the most pretentious of all
his European addresses and the best.
His subject was "Biological Analogies
In History. "
The University of Cambridge hon
ored Mr. Roosevelt by conferring up
on him the degree of doctor of laws ,
and the occasion served to demon
strate his popularity with nil classes.
As Mr. Roosevelt accepted his di
ploma from the hands of Vice-Chan-
cellar Mason , the students who crowd
ed the galleries shouted "Teddy !
Teddy ! " and let down a largo Teddy
bear from the celling. The whole
audience cheered and the colonel , as
he passed out , smilingly patted the
Teddy bear. Later that day Mr.
Roosevelt addressed 700 graduates , on

rapher of the Party.
Theodore Roosevelt's hunting trip In
Africa , ofllcially known as the Smith-
eonian African expedition , lasted near
ly eleven months nnd wns most suc
cessful in every wny. The colonel's
desire to hunt big game was not nil
Wiat was back of the trip , for the
Smithsonian Institution wanted speci
mens of the fauna and flora of the
Park Continent and commissioned the
.fix-president to obtain them. For this
ireason , a part of the expenses wore
jfcorno by the institution , but Mr.
Roosevelt paid all the expenses of
Minsclf and his son Kermlt , presuma
bly earning much of them by his artl-
tiles in a magazine for which ho re
ceived a record-breaking price.
Not wasting much time after leav-
fng the White House , Colonel Roosevelt
velt sailed from Now York on the
nteamshlp Hamburg , headed for Na
ples. With him were Kermlt and
jUiroo naturalists , Major Mcarns , Ed-
piund Heller and J. Alden Lorlng , and

but ho also turned out to bo consider-
Ublo of a hunter.
A great throng of friends and ad-
.mlrers bade the colonel farewell , and
ho sailed away , but could not entirely
separate himself from the world , for
practically all the way across the At
lantic wireless communication with
the Hamburg was maintained. More
over , at the Azores , nnd again at
Gibraltar , he found the officials nnd
people insisted on doing him honor ,
nnd when ho reached Naples on April
' 5 the entire populace turned out to
greet him with flowers and chcors.
, Boarding the German steamship Ad
miral for Mombasa , Mr. Roosevelt
found in his cabin n quantity of flow
ers and a letter from Emperor William
wishing him "good hunting. " At Mes
sina a stop was made to view the
earthquake ruins , nnd there , at King
Victor Emmanuel's request , Mr. Roosevelt
velt and Kermlt visited the Italian
monarch on board the battleship Rex
Umberto. The party arrived at Mom
basa April 21 and was received by
Acting Governor Jackson , who had
been instructed by the British govern
ment to do all In his power to further
the plans of the expedition. Unusual
privileges were granted the hunters ,
and Mr. Roosevelt and Kermlt wore
licensed to kill lions.
At Mombasa the party was Joined
by R. 3. Cuninghame , a veteran Afri
can hunter and explorer , nnd Leslie J.
Tarleton , and these two managed the
expedition in a most able manner.
Taking train to Knpltll plains , the
party became the guests of Sir Alfred
Pease on his ranch. An immense
carnvnn of 2CO persons was organized
and on April 25 Colonel Roosevelt
had his first African hunt. On this
occasion ho bagged two wildebeests
and a Thompson's gazelle. April 30
was a notable day In the camp on the
Athl , for on that day the first lions
fell victims to the marksmanship of
the Roosovolts. Theodore shot two
and Kermlt one , and there was great
rejoicing among the natives who maae
up the caravcn. After that the big

several extensive trips of exploration ,
notably on and around Mount Konla.
The expedition left East Africa December -

down the White Nile , getting back to
comparative civilization at Gomlokoro.
There they went aboard a steamer
