LAUGH AT DESERT
Fearless Men in Motorcars Add
Region to Civilization.
French Expedition Crossed the Sa
hara in Safety, Where White Men
Never Had Been Seen.
The conquest of the Sahara desert
by means of fast tractors and motor
cars is today an accomplished fact.
It is regarded In Paris government,
commercial and military circles as
possibly the most useful exploration
expedition of the twentieth century.
News has just been received in
( I is that the fleet of small tractors
tmd motorcars, which left Algeria De
cember 15 is nearing Timbuctoo on
the Niger river. This means that they
have cut across the Sahara through
sections never before seen by white
men, a distance of about twenty-two
hundred miles—almost ns easily as a
New York tourist travels to Denver,
camping nights by the wayside.
Carrying reserves of gasoliuc and
water, the small cars have completely
relegated the desert camel into ob-,
livion as a much overrated means of
travel ,and have pioneered a trail
which promises France as much wealth
as slie may lose in trying to force Ger
many to i?ay reparations.
This expedition means the linking
of the rich Congo and Niger river re
gions, which lie under French protec
tion, with the Mediterranean, thus
making possible the quick shipments
of the resources of these almost un
touched districts to France and Eu
Equatorial Africa comprises one
and a th>rd million square miles. The
population is eight million, which,
added to twelve million in occidental
Africa, indicates what the develop
ment of such a railway would mean.
These territories hold unlimited lum
ber, with 90,000 square miles in occi
dental Africa alone. This easy motor 1
expedition has shown the French gov
ernment that it will be possible to
supply ' Europe with cotton, lumber,
tobacco and ivory.
The government awaited with the
greatest interest the news of the safe
arrival of the explorers from across
the desert wastes. The greatest dan
ger lay in the 300-mile stretch of
waterless country in the south mid
desert region, known as Hoggar. The
information here shows that the cars
crossed the space without trouble at
high speed in less than two days.
French military authorities believe
it will he possible to link up stations
by small, fast methr tractors, and
thus systematically eradicate the, des
ert marauders. Flying columns of
cars, as shown by the expedition, are
capable of negotiating the soft, shift
ing sands at a much greater speed
than the fastest camels, military men
believe, and spell the end of the ro
mantic sheik, who leads his marauders
abroad against helpless caravans.
The fear of Georges Haardt and
Audoin Deubreuil, the leaders of the
expedition, that it would be captured
by the bandits proved to be ground
less, as the cars proved so rapid as
jto easily outdistance the camel- 1
mounted bandits. The machine guns
they carried proved to he useless ex
! cept for an occasional burst of lire
at a jackal.
These men, despite the fact that
their mission was carried out safely
and with a speed unexpected even to
themselves, in face of the highly ad
vertised dangers from bloodthirsty
bandits, are today national heroes in
France. The government in the colo
nies ordered the greatest reception
for them that Timbuctoo ev&r accord
ed, and on their return to Paris they
received the highest honors.

Along in November Freddy began
wishing for an air rifle for Christmas.
He wishtd for it when dad was around,
he wished for it before grandma, before
big brother and in the hearing of any
one else who might have any influence
with Santa Claus in the matter. His
wishing was successful and the first
, thing Freddy spied on Christmas morn
ing was the coveted air rifle. He
dressed hurriedly, bolted breakfast and
u grabbed up the gun and started “hunt
ing.” Two squares up the street was
a little park with sparrows flitting
about. Freddy started gunning for
sparrows. He shot and shot without
hitting a bird, but lie wasn’t disheart
ened. Just before noon one day
mother was astonished to hear Freddy
come in the front door crying.
“Why,” Freddy!” she exclaimed.
“Have you hurt yourself with your new
“No,” Freddy sobbed.
“Then what is the matter*?”
