Arusha is a military station

Arusha, 4,732 ft., 271 m. from Tanga, pop. about 350 (Bloem’s Hotel), is a military station (K.A.R.) with two missions, and is the business centre of a district located on the slopes of Mount Meru, with a considerable white population. In fact, owing to the more generous rainfall on the northern side, the slopes of the lesser mountain support the larger population of the two. In both cases white settlement is hampered by the large number of natives already on the land.
