Excerpt from Snap Shots From Sunny Africa General R. S. S. Baden-Powell, of the English army, for years a distinguished soldier and traveller in South Africa, in his Foreword to Some African Highways, a recent interesting book by Caroline Kirkland, says: - How I should like to be a woman! It must be nice to lie back in your cushions and watch the men doing things which they think very clever, kwing all the time that you can do them much better yourself if you only care to try. For instance: I am convinced that if women were to take up the art of scouting they would easily beat men at the game. They have a greater natural gift of observation and a most uncannily clever knack of 'putting this and that together' and then deducing meaning from the smallest signs. Hence it comes that when women travel into the lesser-kwn countries of the world, as they frequently do wadays, they bring this power of observation into play with remarkable results. And of all women in the world I would place our American cousins at the top of the list for this particular quality.
