Spending a great ilea! of time in China
and Japan in the interest of a European firm supplying .uins and ammunition to the Japanese and Chinese is authority for the statement
that the world's next great war will
take place in fhe Orient. He bases
his estimate on tlie immense number
of guns being ordered for this part of
the world.
"There is no use disguising the fact
lhal there is grave danger from the
yellow peril," lie said. "Tlie Japanese, who possess minds more subtle
than anj nation in the world, will not
allow lhe outbreak to come until
China and Japan are thoroughly armed and equipped. The Japanese ex-
peel io furnish the brains for the
next light, bul ihey expect to make
ths Chinese do most of ihe drudgery,
"The Orientals do nol understand
iln Occidentals, and lhe people of the
tai easi do not understand the people
of the western world. Thai is all
there is to il. And sooner or later
these misunderstandings must blossom
out into actual warfare, No diplomacy
can avert ii. Tor Ilie popular pressure
of the Oriental governments will be
so great that no Oriental government
can withstand it. The government of i
Japan itself could not have prevented
the war with Russia. The people were
hound to have the war, and although
they worshiped the emperor, still he
could not stop the war.
"On the part of the Americans
there is a complete misunderstanding
as to the ability of the Japs. I have
seen them fight in China and in Russia, and I tell you frankly that while
I would not be afraid to pit an American regiment against the king's own
on neutral ground, or against the
crack regiments of France or Germany, i should he afraid of the Japanese. I believe they are as good
if not better soldiers than the Americans, man to man, though I suppose
few Americans���few white men���can
be found willing to believe it. But
if there are better soldiers than the
Americans the Japs are those soldiers.
"On the Japanese side, the people
do not understand what the white
races can really do when it conies to
massing armies and navies. For instance, they figure it out. this way:
China has four hundred million people, Japan has forty million. The
United States has eighty million;
Japan can whip lhe I'nited States
five times at easy as she whipped
China. Japan whipped the one hundred and twenty million people of
Russia, and Russia was the big policeman of Asia. The United States has
only two-thirds of the population of
Russia, therefore Japan can whip the
United States far easier than she
whipped Russia. The educated people know something of the big skyscrapers���the big machines, fighting
and otherwise, in America, but the
rank and file do not understand it, and
will not try to understand it. War
is coming and it is coming more
iiuiekly than most  people imagine."

Most persons aspirate the initial letter of "humble" nowadays and write
"a humble" just as tbey write "a humbug" or "a humming bird." But there
are very many who would not naturally souud an h lu "humble," or in
"herb," "hospital," "homage," or even
"humor." Before the nineteenth century nobody did, though It ls clear that
the aspirate hnd become regular by
"David Copperfleld's" time, from the
fact that Dickens harps ou Uriah
Heap's " 'umble." The Insistence on
the h is comparatively modem: mediaeval men not only said "abit" for
"habit," but wrote It so and the Bible
has "an Hebrew."

forth that one G. A. Keefer, who is
described as a Dominion government

Aunt Panthea Brooks lived hi a little
New Hampshire village very many
years without quarreling with any otic,
nud was so thoroughly liked by every
oue for miles round that her popularity
excited th.' interest of a summer visitor.
"Aunt Panthea," lie asked, "how is it
that yon keep on Buch good terms with
every ope, fl bile tbey are all quarreling
among themselves?"
"Well," said Aunt, Panthea, "being us
you aren't to stay here long I'll tell
you. When I go down the street l
meet Jason Purdy, and lie siys, 'Why,
Panthea. how v,    1 you look!'
" 'I'm glad you think so, Jason,' 1

"Next minute up comes Ezry Dracut.
" 'Well, now, Panthea,' he says, 'how
porely you are looking this year.'
"'My land, Ezry,' I say, 'how quick
you are to notice those things!'
"So it is with everything. Those who
like to think one way, I let 'em think

other, I let 'em think it."

as to government steamers; hut he

It is il prosperous and go-ahead city,

talk ahout exterminating them than
to do it, Winnipeg should bottle a
few specimens and send them over

It is hard to tell whether animals
blush, for their faces are covered so
thickly with fur or hair or feathers
that we do not know what may be
going on beneath. Were they as barefaced as man it is more than likely we
should see them blush, especially the
more bashful sort and those with some
sense of shame. It is a fact that the
faces of vultures flush, and several of
the monkeys become purple with rage,
which may be considered as a kind of
blushing. This may be proved nny

Only In tin* Talmud ami Koran, tint
In th��- Legend! of Almosl Everj
Rnee That   Ever   Lived  on   Earth.
One of the most powerful und vivid
descriptive portions of tbe Look of
Genesis Is that devoted to the wonderful story of the deluge. Together witli
the accounts of Adam's fall, the slay-j
'n? of Abel and the turning of Lot's
wife Into a pillar of suit, every one
remembers from childhood how Noah
was wanis'd of the doom Impending
over the children of men and how he
constructed u huge ark in which be did
live, himself and his family aud two
of every Least of tlie field and fowl of
the air, for the space of 190 days, or i
until the waters subsided and the dry I
land appeared. But the Biblical recital
of this terrible visitation of divine
wrath is by no means the only one.
In fact, the must skeptically Inclined
must believe" that something of the sort I
actually occurred long ano, for It has
been perpetuated uot only in the Talmud and Koran, but Ln the legends of
almost every nation and nice tlmi ever
lived on the face of the earth, Including
the Chinese, th" anclenl Aztecs of
Mexico, the Indian tribes of North and
South America and even the savages
of Africa.
The story, of course, varies material
ly in the multitudinous traditions, but
the glsl of it remains substantially the
sa -namely, that the earth was once
visited by a great Hood in which nearly
every living thins; was overwhelmed
and lost. Thus In the Koran we read
that Noah constructed the ark with
divine assistance and was railed at for

We set our ideas and'principles fe-
guiding the calendar from two sources,
Roman and Jewish. Every' one knows
that the names of the months ara

the various Roman rulers changed tha

From   Jewish  Si
features.   The ere.
his pains
the   wicked.   When   the
time prescribed for the punishment oi
mankind arrived, water was seen to
flow from the burning oven of Noah's
wife, and immediately all the veins
and arteries of the earth broke and
spurted out water.
Noah was then admonished in these
words: "Take and bring into the ark
two couples of every kind of animal,
male and female, with all your family,
except him who has beeu condemned
by your mouth, and receive the faithful and even the unbelieving, but few
only will enter." The Koran also snys
that the ark was built iu two years
and that it contained three stories, the
upper one for the birds, the middle one
for tlie men and the provisions and the
hold for the beasts. Canaan, the son
of Ham, refused to be saved. Therefore Noah cursed him, and his posterity became black and were enslaved.
The Persians assert that Ham Incurred
his father's malediction as well. When
six months had passed the ark rested
on the top of Mount Djondl (Ararat),
after having made the circuit of the
world. TabarJ says that two sorts of
animals left the ark which had not entered it���the pig and the eat. Concerning the latter we have this interesting
piece of information: When the rats bs?-
gan to make trouble the voyagers com-
plained to Noah. Whereupon the patriarch "passed his hand down the back
of the lion, who sneezed, and the cut
leaped out of its- nose. And the cat ate
the rats,"
According to the Talmud, Noah and
his family and one pair of each kind of
beast were to be saved in the ark, but
of every clean beast seven were to en-
tor in.   The rhinoceros, however, had'
to be left out. for the simple but suiffi-
cient reason  that its neck alone ivas ,
three miles long.   Nevertheless all the ���
rabbinic   writers   agree   thut  the   rhinoceros survived the tlood; hence it is
reasonable   to   suppose  that  the  huge
beast was taken in tow by a rope attached  to  its  horn.    Some  authorities1,
likewise  declare   that   Noah   extended
his hospitality to another  outsider in
the shape of S)g, the giant, w,ho climb-,
ed on the roof of the ark and received
his daily food through a hole bored in
the side of the vessel.
Ararat has  been  known  under  this1
name for 3,000 years, aud an Armenian
writer declares that au entire country
was so called after Aral the Fair, anj
ancient   Armenian    king,   who   lived'
about 1750 B. C.   He fell ln a bloody
battle with the Babylonians, and the
scene  of   his   death   was   thenceforth
known   as ' Arai-A1.1t,   or   the   Fall   of
Aral. Josephus refers to the mountain
as Nazuana and declares that tha remains of the ark were there tu be peon
carefully preserved.
Almost all the Asiatic tradition?
closely resemble the Biblical account.
Berosus In his Chaldee history (B. C,
200) speaks of-ten kings, who appear
to correspond to the ten patriarch's lu
Genesis before the flood. The last of
these kings was called Xisuthrus, Ite-
rosus relates that "Kronos appeared to
Xisuthrus In a dream ami warned him
that all men would be destroyed by u
deluge on the 13th of the month dAs?
sios ami commanded him to write
down all the learning and science Ot
men aud to hide it In the sun city
Siparls and then to build a ship and
enter lt along with his family and, r.���!���.'-
fives and nearest friends and to take
Into it with him food nftd drink and
beasts and winged fowl! Wheix hvjwi).-/
asked whither he was about to'sail. hf
was bidden to reply, 'To the gods tf
pray them that men may prosper.'"
Xisuthrus did as he was oomniundod
and when the flood showed signs ol
abating he sent out three birds in sue
cession. The tirst and second cam*
back, the latter with mud on its feet
but the third returned not. Soon aftra
this the ship was stranded on a mouc
tain,  aud   Xisuthrus disembarked  wit!.
his family, offered thanks to the gods
and vanishes! Subsequently the -���'
rnalntng survivors heard, his voii '1

great Jewish festival of
the! passoyer was celebrated on the
vcA' day of the first full moon after
1 lies spring equinox. '?'*.> early Christians, or many of them, took the same
day. but this led to charges of heresy,
to discussion, criticism and even contempt; so it was decreed probably by
Ooistantine the Creat ln 325 A. D., Ini
connection with the council of Nicaea. j
that   the   Christian    festival    Easter'
should be observed on the Sunday' following the passover. and the other
movable feasts of tho church were
made dependent ou this. So the ele-
meut of a fixed day of the week was
brought into the calculation.
In this year���325���the vernal equ'iuos
fell on March 21, and, if s'as?sar's work
In establishing the Julian calendar had
only been correct, this evsuit would have
happened on this date forever. But nature seems to abhor simple ratios as she
wag said to abhor a vacuum. Unfortu-s
nately for simplicity the year is uot ex-(
actly 365 days 0 hours, but about 11
minutes 14 seconds less. So the insertion of the extra day In four years was
overdoing the correction, as was known
even in the dark ages, but after the revival of Itjarning and the establishments'
of observatories it was commented out
in the council of Trent and was very,
much discussed by mathematicians.
And by the middle of the sixteenth century the hundreds of small errors had
accumulated to ten days, so the vernal
equinox fell not on the 21st, but on
the llth, of March. ���  1
This was tlie condition of things
when, in loT2, Pope Gregory XIII. was
elected. He realized the glory that it
would be to his reign if this confusing
matter was settled, and so set a company of mathematicians to work ore
the problem, not only of rectifying the'
olil errors, but of providing rules to
prevent errors in the future. The hanL
est part of the work was to <jx. tho
movable church Coasts,without, doing
violence to the traditions. That a gootj
deal could be said about the work is
evidenced by the book of 800 page^
written by Clavlus, oue of the eompa.
ny. The result was that in loSl a paj
pal bull was issued declaring, among
other things, that in 1532 the day. fojj
lowing Oct 4 should be called Oet. 15
and that, centurids should uot be leap} ���
years unless divisible by 400.
Hulers and states that were ther)
Catholic responded to the pope's res
quest for acceptance of the reform; Ir)
Prance the ten days were dropped after Dec, 9, 1582; ln Catholic German^
the change was ipad'p in 1584, but thu
Protestant states delayed Until Feb;
1!) (March 1), 1000. In Switzerland and
Poland there was such resistance made
that the troops were necessary to suppress lt. .
The change was long delayed In Protestant England, whicli would not willingly accept an alleged reform dus5 to
a pope  that had encouraged  the  armada.   But the need of the uniformity
among   nelghboi ng   states   was   too
great, and In 17.V: '.ord Chesteriield in
troduced, into |iarliameut a bill fur thej
reform  of the calendar.   Some details!
of the law may be quoted from a maga-j

those present that they had all lost
two close personal friends by the departure of Messrs. Shiles and Whit-
nii re, He said that the reason that
tlu presentations had not been made
before was because of ihe many other
calls that had been made recently
upon the electric railwaymen, but he
wisiied the recipients of the gifts to
understand that they had not been for-
fotten, and that it had been the Inten
i;on to present them with a slight
token of esteem from the time their
resignations  were announced.
The presentations were then made,
.lames Grimmer handing Mr. Shiles
the handsome gold watch, at the same
time referring to Mr. Shiles' fifteen
years of service with the company,
saying tha: he had always found him
willing and anxious to help the other
employees in any undertaking, and
that by his departure both the company and thi ��� . . ��� - had lost a
valued friend.
