THE KIKUYU COUNTRY.
A Fine Eegion In Africa Right on the
From tho Now York Sun.
Tho Kikuyu country in East Africa Is
famous for having within its borders
ono of the greatest snow mountains of
Africa, Mount Kenla, whoso summit Is
always white with snow, though It lies
directly under tho equator. All travel
ers have been onthuslustlu over tho
beauty and fertility of this region of
forest and plain that rises from a
height of ubout 4,000 fcot to tlio sum
mit of Kenla, more than 18,000 feet
above the sea. In this land, exceed
ingly rich In agricultural possibilities,
it Is said tho white man can llvo and
work as ho docs In Europe und very
likely die of old uge. It Is practically
the only region yet studied In tropical
Africa of which it may be truthfully
Travelers, however, have given tho
Inhabitants of theso uplands an evil
reputation. In other words, tho Akl
kuyu are said to bo suspicious, treach
erous und hostllo to all strangers. But
the latest testlmonv. mminr- fmm mi.
Jor Richard Crawshay, of.tho British
who, hiiu uua uvea among tnese peo
plo for years, Is to tho effect that they
nre thO finest Afl-lcntl nunnln br. ovr
met, and ho has had long experience
among muny irioes in British East Af
rica, It Will bo lllterestlnir tn rend
some things that Major Crawshay says
about the country In which white men
may live In good health and about the
remarKame natives who Inhabit Jt.
The first traveler to describe this
region was tho late explorer, Joseph
Thomson, Mho wrote as follows of tho
lurgo area of Kikuyu lying between
THE SCRANTON TRIBUNES WEDNJESl AY,
6,000 and 0,000 feet. above tho sea, where
It Is paid white men may live nnd work:
"Drought Is unknown nnd astonish
ing fertility Is everywhere seen.
Streams abound In great numbers.
Enormous quantities ot sweet potatoes,
ynms, cassava, sugar cane, millet, etc,
are raised and the supply seems to bo
quite Inexhaustible. On my return
journey 1 found u caravan ot over fif
teen hundred men who remained a
month nnd carried away little short ot
threo months' provisions, yot It did not
seem perceptible to affect tho supply
or to raise tho ridiculously low prices.

HEALTH AND USEFULNESS.
The Two Go Together nnd the Latter
Largely the Result of tho Former.
From the Boston Journal.
Wo have hoard much lately nbout tho
Increasing competitiveness of life, not
only In the more or less barren coun
tries ot Europe but also in our own
fertile country. The question has a
number of phases, one ot which wo
shall consider here.
If you look at the sporting pages of
tho Journal today you will see reports
of a multitude of athletic events. Tho
schoolboy is enjoying himself In the
base ball field and on the river; his
brother, may bo a member of some col
lege nine or a candidate for a crew; his
sister Is perhaps a member of a basket
ball team; his father, In odd hours, goes
out on the golf links or practices with
the sturdy medlclno-ball in tho gym
nasium, and it Is not at all Improbable
that this same boy's mamma can swing
a golf stick as vigorously and accurate
ly as she once could swing the slipper
that pursues disobedience.
So, If tho struggle In this vale of
tears Is growing keener, It seems to us
that a good many people aro In con
stant active training for tho struggle.
There nre exceptions to every rule, of
course, but the chances of winning this
ancient fight for a decent earthly exist
ence arc better with tho man who takes
care of his body than with the man
who doesn't. Give us health, and let
the richest, man In the union keep his
hundreds of millions and his chronic
Indigestion. Good health Is half the
battle. It quickens the body and
sweetens tho mind; It promotes ambi
tion; it lightens trouble, and It length
ens the years. Of all worldly posses
sions it is the chlefest, for the loss of
It is what all men, the rich and the
poor alike, most regret.
It is good, therefore, to become ha
bituated to hcalthfulncss at an early
age; and, barring accident, good health
certainly Is a matter of habits. Nor Is
there any reason why the playfulness
of these habits should not be relished
In manhood as well as in boyhood.
Many a great man would have done
twice as much for his day. and genera

A New Congressman Tells a Story in
Explanation of His Indecision.
From tlio Washington Times.
Representative Sam Powic.rs. of Mas
sachusetts, who Is serving his first
term in congress, and by virtue of that
fact and his personal popularity is tho
president of the Tantalus club, tells a
good story to illustrate his Indecision
upon the big questions of public policy
which come up for consideration in the
"I come into the house," said Mr.
Powers the other day, "and I listen to
some man making a speech upon one
side of an important proposition, and
he is so eloquent and logical I am al
most convinced that ho is right and
that I should vote as ho advises. The
next member who commands attention
is a fellow who takes a position exact
ly opposite and his reasoning is so
sound that I have to admit that he is
"Thus my decision swings from one
side to another like a pendulum. My
nttltudo Is very much like that of a
juror up In Massachusetts, who served
In a case I was once interested In.
"It was the first time that the man
had ever served in that capacity. The
Jury after listening to the arguments
of counsel retired and deliberated for
a long time. Finally they reported
that It would be Impossible for them to
reach an agreement.
"When they filed In from the jury
room the court was much displeased
and proceeded to lecture them rather
severely for their falling to agree.
'Why, your honor,1 exclaimed tho
new juryman, 'how In tho world do
you expect tho members of the jury to
agree when tho lawyers in the case
can't agree themselves?' "
