Booth as Hamlet. This faithful portrait, from life, expresses the thoughtful mood and pose of the simulated part, and
equally protrays the lofty characteristics of the man.

Nearly every actor of ability has essayed the part of "Hamlet," and there have been many variations of the role.
With Mr. Wilson Barrett its melodramatic side is most emphasized, and his skilled knowledge and taste have lent a
new interest to a character hitherto traditional, even in its variations. The magnitude of Shakespeare's genius is seen
in his adaptability to all times.

The cord of deep emotion which Modjeska's playing invariably strikes is the very key-note of the character of
Ophelia.

A Guaranteed

Investment



Sound Business

Well managed, with reasonable capital

to conduct it, operated under

conservative principles presents the

most staple and paying form

of investment.

During past years success after success has
proven with a combination of capital and good
business judgment the greatest results are ob-
tained in business life. This is due to the fact
that in the consolidation of interests we have
more capital, more brains, more push and ener-
gy, which are the essential principles of success.
These facts are appreciated in the organization
of this Company, as it would be impossible to
pursue the outlined plans by any individual.
An idea of the many opportunities our charter
enables us to grasp with their money-making
powers is shown on the following pages and
will pay you to look them over and investigate.

FROM INDIA TO EGYPT.



VOYAGE TO ADEN ADEN TO SUEZ THROUGH THE CANAL PORT SAID.

I I (RAVELERS who have toured across India sail on the next stage of their
voyage from Bombay, by one of the big liners, which run weekly from that
-L city to London via the Suez Canal. The next port of call is Aden, which is
reached by a sail of 1,664 miles southwest across the Arabian Sea. Here the
"round the world traveler meets again the vessels of the through service from
Australia to England. Tourists who omit the journey through India, and remain
with the Australian steamer throughout the voyage, sail directly from Colombo,
and after a course of 2,093 miles northwest across the Arabian Sea, past the
Island of Socotra and Cape Guardafui, where Arab dhows in the slave trade may
be seen cruising at times, reach the same port of Aden. Aden is known as the
Indian Gibraltar. With this to guard the entrance to the Red Sea and the other
citadel at the Pillars of Hercules to guard the Mediterranean, Great Britain controls
all the great interior area of water so far as naval power is concerned. The penin-
sula of Aden is situated on the southeast coast of Arabia, about ninety miles from
the entrance to the Red Sea. Originally it formed part of the Arabian province of
Yemen, but for nearly half a century it has been included in British territory, under
the governor of Bombay. The peninsula is connected with the Arabian continent
on the north side by a narrow neck of land such as Gibraltar is joined to Spanish
territory. The whole area of peninsula and harbor is estimated at thirty-five square
miles, and the population not less than 20,000, exclusive of the garrison. The
military cantonment is the place of greatest interest. There are barracks and
mess-houses built of stone and mud for the accommodation of the garrison. The
brigadier-general in command has under his direction a force which consists of
artillery, British and Indian infantry, native sappers and miners, and a troop of
native cavalry, to which camel-mounted Arabs are attached. The place is famously
hot, and service on that military station is considered as exile by British officers.
A notable feature of the Arabian city is the water supply. In such a climate and
a large population it is not to be wondered that great care has been taken to provide
a reservoir system. There are about fifty tanks in Aden with an aggregate capacity
of nearly 30,000,000 gallons. The date of the original construction of some of
these was as early as the year 600 A. D., and many were in fair preservation at
the time of the Britisji conquest. Not all have been fully restored, but the supply
now is ample. The Red Sea is the scene of more objects of interest and of the
romance of history than the casual reader is apt to remember. In the early days of
civilization its waters were full of Egyptian and Arabian commerce, and the region
is famous in fable as well as history. The narrow entrance to this peculiar body of
water is the Strait of Babu'l Mandib, but twelve and a half miles in breadth. Just
within the strait is the little island of Perim, volcanic and arid, but occupied by a
small detachment of British troops and a cable station. Near by on the Arabian
coasts the village of Mocha, which has given its name to a favorite brand of coffee.
Two hundred miles north in the Red Sea is the little island of Kamaran, also occu-
pied by the British government and as a cable station. On the Arabian side of
this narrow sea are the cities of Yamba and Jiddah, the ports respectively of Medina

and Mecca, which lie more than one hundred miles inland. On the other
side on the Egyptian and Abyssinian coast, are Annesley Bay, Masso-
wah, the center of Italian influence in Africa Suakin and Kosair. The
Red Sea lighthouses so far are maintained by the government of Egypt,
although European keepers are employed. The Turkish government,
on the Arabian side, wholly neglects such aids to commerce. Near the
northern extremity of the Red Sea are rocky islets which mark the
entrance to the Gulf of Suez. All the way through this gulf the water
is shallow and lighthouses are numerous. The place where the Israe-
lites crossed is well identified by local tradition. At the same place
Napoleon with his generals attempted a crossing on horseback, but was
deterred by a sudden change of wind and tide, which swept a great
volume of water in breakers over the place. Across these flats a
passage had to be dredged for ocean steamers. A few hours more
and one reaches the cities of the isthmus. The channel of the Suez Canal,
which connects the Mediterranean with the Red Sea, is about one
hundred miles in length. It starts from the roadstead of Suez, which has
been a seaport at the head of the Red Sea for two centuries. It possesses
unique interest as a city of the desert, and as marking the spot where
East and West have met in their commerce and travel. The picturesque
sailing dhows which lie at its wharves bear cargoes of coffee, spices,
gums, senna, rose leaves, and all other drugs and perfumes of Araby.
For some reason M. de Lesseps did not bring his canal through the
ancient channel and past the old town, but when about five miles off he
turned it eastward, avoiding altogether the head of the gulf, through
which the direct road would have led. Thus it came to pass that the Suez
Canal does not go to Suez at all, but has had formed for it a port of its
own, about three miles from the head of the gulf. Some day Port Tewfik
may be one of the great maritime and commercial cities of the world,
though at present it contains little besides the offices of the canal com-
pany and homes of the pilots. The canal has at present an average
width of only twenty-five yards, but great improvements are being made
in this respect. A deepening is quite as essential as a widening, because
of the slow pace required of ships when there is little depth of water
under keel. The average rate of speed of vessels passing through the
canal is five miles an hour in the excavated channels. Of course they
travel at full speed in the open lakes, so that the entire journey from
Suez to Port Said is made in about twelve hours. Ships are piloted on the
block system, well known in railway operation. Parts of the Suez canal
have been cut through sandstone, while at other places it runs through
clay and sand hills. In its course several lakes are passed. This is the
same channel that was followed by the ship canal built by the Egyptian
monarch Necho, 600 B. C., from Suez to the Nile. This cutting became
choked with sand, but was afterward cleared and reopened by Caliph
Omar, in the seventh century. The town of Ismailia is situated on Lake
Timsah, the half-way point in the canal. It clusters around a summer
palace of the Khedive, and was the center of the celebrations at the
opening of the canal in November, 1869. Again in 1882 it was the base
of Lord Wolseley's campaign against Cairo and Alexandria. Port Said,
the northern entrance to the canal and the Mediterranean port, owes its
existence altogether to the canal and its commerce. It is built on

reclaimed sands between the sea and Lake Menzaleh, and lies so
low that it seems sometimes as if the sea would overwhelm it. It
is not a picturesque place, and except for the canal has little
interest. Lake Menzaleh is separated from the sea by a succession
of sand beaches, which extend all along the delta of the Nile and
far eastward almost to the coast of Palestine. Formerly Lake
Menzaleh was a part of the delta, but the sea has claimed it, and
it is now a vast, half-marshy lagoon dotted with islets, the
fishing ground of Arabs, and the home of millions of waterfowl.

THE LAND OF PHARAOHS.

In all the world, no country has seen more change in methods
and safety of travel in the last few years than has Egypt. Experts
in the organization of comfort for tourists have expended their
best energies in devising ways by which access can be had to
the sights of greatest interest at the least cost of time and trouble.
There was a day not long ago when a visit to Cairo, Alexandria,
the Pyramids, and the Sphinx was the limit of possibility for the
most daring traveler, and then great expenditure of money and
labor was involved. Now it is but the beginning of a journey in
Egypt. The cataracts of the Nile may be reached by steamers
which afford every luxury of stateroom and table. Ancient
Thebes and Luxor are way-stations on the voyage. The pilgrim
who remembers Gordon's brave fight and death may, thanks to
Lord Kitchener's brilliant re-conquest of the Soudan region, ex-
tend his tour to Khartoum and the upper Soudan without great
difficulty, and it will not be long until the lakes of Central Africa
and the head waters of the Nile, the scenes of infinite labor and
bravery on the part of Speke and Baker and Livingston and
Stanley, may be included in the itinerary of a personally con-
ducted excursion, with a coupon ticket as the guarantee of
