They Do Belter in Europe. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 29 February 1908

Similarly, when the French President engages in a rabbit hunt at Rambouillet the whole affair is prearranged—cheese, egg, mustard, red pepper, tablesiiooiiful of beer, and all. It’s a foregone success. Yet we Americans, though perfectly familiar with European practices, permit our chief magistrate to face the many hazards occasioned by the timidity, whimsicality, or non-existence of game. Besides, we allow him to announce beforehand the particular sort of game he aspires to slay. He goes to the Rockies for mountain lions, to Long Island for shellfish, to Louisiana for bear.

Pirates of the Caspian. The Turcoman dwellers In Central Asia are terrible robbers. They are also slave dealers, selling all the prisoners whom they make In war or In their thieving raids. Besides plundering by land, they carry on their evil work by water, for they have a number of pirate ships on the Caspian sea which lie In wait for Russian and Persian vessels. They seize all the goods on board these ships, and the unfortunate crews are sold into slavery. The chief markets for slaves are Khiva and Bokhara. Sometimes they have a difficulty in finding purchasers for all their captives if these have been numerous, and they have been known to dispose of a Persian prisoner for a sum equal to 18 pence of British money.
