TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE
T11AVEL articles have suffered sovero am
putations by reason of tho war. There are
no more articles about motor trips In Franco,
resorts along tho Riviera nnd climbing tho
Alps. These articles aro all pigeon-holed, or
returned to their authors' portfolios, until tho
end of tho war and resumption of traffic shall
again make them timely.
As a result tho See-Amcrlca-Flrst propa
ganda Is having a boom: not only as applied
to these United States, but Including South
America from tip to toe. Wo probably shan't
hear much about trips to Alaska until tho
lato Bprlng and no one Is advising a Mexican
tour Just yet. Dut otherwise, all America is
In a fair way to have Its head turnod.
Of 14 travel and adventure nrtiolos in the
current magazines, six dent with tho possi
bilities of tho two Americas, two aro hunting
stories, three nro pioneer tales, ono is a sea
yarn, nnd two are biographical of outdoors
Reminiscent of many delightful descrip
tions nnd sketches of motor trips through
Franco nnd Spain, Is an articlo by "Walter
Halo with tho suggestive title, "Staying at
Home for Awhile, How tho European War
Should Encourage American Motoring" (1).
Mr. Halo Is a discriminating critic, and at
times holds up tho American roads and hos
telrles for very unfavorable comparison with
'Hhoso across tho water, but in the main, his
article adds allurement to the thought of a
motor trip through New England.
The tariff In tne best hotels of Paris,
London, Berlin nnd New York varies very
slightly. But tho motorist naturnlly objects
to paying similar charges In tho smaller
American cities. Outside of Paris rates scalo
down perceptibly. Rooms In hotols of the
first class average from 80 cents up; break
fast Is 30 cents; luncheon, without wine, 60
cents, and dinner, one dollar. In the smaller
country Inns, the rates nre much more rea
sonable All of which seems rtdlculously
cheap In comparison to what we have to pay
In tho small town hotels nt homo.
In tho third of a series of articles on South
of Panama (2), Professor D. A. Ross, of the
University of "Wisconsin, gives an Inviting
sense of the nearness and magnitude of a
prehistoric civilization In the Inca ruins
nround Cuzco, Poru.
With Its many furlongs of nnclent walls,
Its Temple of tho Sun and Its splendid
churches, It Is to lovers of tho past tho
most fascinating spot In tho New World.
Within a decade or two, Cuzco will possess
comfortable hotels from which parties of
"See America First" travelers will tour In
Portions ot 14 palaces of Inca rulers lino
the streets of Cuzco; these walls are of
finely-cut blocks, laid In courses without
cement. A needle or oven a hair cannot
be inserted betweon these great blocks. No
doubt this Is the finest mason's work in tho
world; yet the microscope shows that these
stones were wrought not with Iron or steel,
but with tools of champl, an alloy of copper
A row of six porphyry slabs, ranging in
height from 11 to 13 feet, 6 to 7 feet wldo,
and 3 to 6 feet thick. Thcso stones must
have been sawed out, for at the bottom of
certain cuts, ono finds the thin groovo left
by a stone saw.
Plunging Through to the Antipodes
"Without so much as tho quiver of a literary
eyelash, Norman Duncan In "Cannibal Coun
try" (3), recounts some yarns of Papua, over
by Australia, beside which even our civilized
war In Europe seems not quite so barbarous.
He says that there aro about 1000 white set
tlers on the coast, and about 400,000 natives
of scattered and mutually hostile tribes in
In spite of the amazing point of view In
relation to the taking of llfo, a white man
Is reasonably secure, so severely has the
hand of the law fallen upon offenders, pro
vided he walks circumspectly, with some
notion of propriety In respect to alien prop
erty, dignity and wives.
"It Is not," a plantor explained, with no
glint of amusement, "that a New Guinea
natlvo prefers a white man, for whom as a
matter of fact, he has a considerable dls
tastu." "Distaste," we exclaimed, In aston
"Well, you see," the planter replied, "a
white man Is salty. And naturally, too, he
tastes disagreeably of tobacco. You couldn't
expect anything else, could you?"
"I understand," a resident Informed us.
"that women are not particularly edible."
We suggested that this was a singular thing.
"They do all the work," tho resident ex
plained, "and ore consequently lean and
Some agreeable generalizing follows a de
scription by H. M. "Wallls, of the experiences
ot "A Naturalist In North Africa" (4). His
party, consisting of "The Fat Man and "The
Thin Man" roped with stout half-lnch Manila,
had successfully negotiated some very steep
and preclpitoua cliffs, in pursuit of birds eggs.
Thero bad been perilous and anxious mo
ments; It was over, the boyish folly of It alll But
It comes to this once In a year or so, the
man In us rebels against the encroachments
of Time, and breaks forth. Gray hair shall
not a prison make, nor stiffened limbs a
cage. And It Is something, as both thin
man and fat man agreed, to have craned
over the brink and seen the woods below
through a driving storm of birds; to have
noted close at hand as one hung over tho
gulf ot air, the soft drab dappllngs upon the
back ot the huge creature as he "sailed
past, nor beat his broad wing dragon pen
ned"; to have observed for one's very self
12 to 15 pounds of bone and sinew upborne
upon motionless planes, as lightly as float
ing gossamer. How ye mechanicians tell
Building Railroad Out of Rainbows
An Interesting sense of men who think In
terms of empire, who can see In the opales
cent mist of a waterfall the shining steel
rails of a transcontinental railroad, the fabric
of whose dreams la turned into material sub
stance, is given In "Rhodes' All-Red Route"
(5). This refers to the African Cape-to-Cairo
railroad whose construction now nearing
completion, has been Interrupted by the war.
At the time of hi first visit to Victoria
Falls, Cecil Rhodes had already conceived
his great scheme dater consummated
through the Boer war for the bringing of
til South Africa under the British flag.
Rhodes' companion followed him one day
out to the very verge ot the falls. The com
panion tells the story:
'He started at the touch of my band on .
his arm. Then aa hi yes wandered back to
the sheer 400-foot drop of the 'Leaping
Water Fatt,' tha far-away looic that I knew
so well returned, and he wu ott again with
nls dreams. Tt it was not to the whit
krecade of the fax e t&s li'&iX that ha wa.i

cliff, where the last of a long arch of ft
dozen or more rainbows spAnncd the gorge

' 'S ,' ho thundered, and I caught tho
words only by bringing an ear close to his
lips, 'Do you know that the natives elftim
that they can see far Into the future by look
lng Into the depths of that big ralnboWT
And what do you think I can sc there?
Two lines of shining steel a railroad run
ning from one end of Africa to the other,
nnd crossing this gorge right pver there
where the spray from the Falls will beat
upon tho faces of tho passengers, Just as
It bents upon ours. To cast and west I
can see branches running, picking up busi
ness for the trunk, nil the way from Capo
Town to the Mediterranean. And look, S ,
do you see that bar of red7 That means
that It's going to be nn "All-Red" railways
that It will run In British territory all the
