Churchill   Reshuffles   Naval
8lr     Francia     Brldgemsn-Brldgeman
Replace* Fameua "Tug" Wilson a*
Flrat Sea Lord.
London, Nov. 29.���The Rt. Hon.
Winston Churchill with characteristic
adroitness haa started to reshuffle the
deck at the Admiralty. Everybody expected Admiral Sir William May to
succeed Sir Arthur K. Wilson, commonly known aa "Tug" Wilson, as
flrht sea loord, but Winnie generally
noes the unexpected, and behold Sir
Francis Charles Brlgeman-Brldgeman
succeeds the famous 'Tug."
Sir Francis entered the navy in 1862,
became a lieutenant tn 187,1, a commander eleven years later, and got his
ship In 1890. lie became a rear-ad-
mi lar I in 1903, and was commander-
in-chief of the home fleet in 1907, and
for the next two years. He was formerly second lord of the admiralty.
Mr. Churchill has been careful to
announce that the changes he bas
made Implied no reproach on any
one, bat the recent Morocco Imbroglio
has made the public very critical . of
any changes in the administration of
either tbe senior or cunior services,
and there iB bound to be considerable
criticism of this rej-shuffle.
ft bas been averred that ths fleet
was unprepared at the time of tho
crisis and Judging from the recent
speeches of Lord Charles Beresford
there seems to have been sufficient
rope to floe; the government with, it
net to hang it. At any rate Reginald
McKenna reslgncdJbnd changed portfolios with Mr. Shurrhill. and tho
��mptly i--Ja% In Admiral Fish
Expensive Improvements Will Ensure
Comfort and Convenience of Every
Shopping Man and Woman.
Well-known for the last eight or
nine years as one of the largest furniture stores In the district, Lees, Ltd.,
have now entered on still another
phase of development and progress. A
very short time ago the management
decided to add a general dry goods dj-
partment to tbe business, so as to
build up a luxurious home store, where
every wife, mother or housekeeper
will be able to buy everything she
needs for tbe borne, and where the
mere male may also supply his wants
to bis complete satisfaction.
With these objects in view consider
able structural alterations, involving
the expenditure of $15,U00, have been
made. A new storey has been added,
and the basement has been transformed Into a salesroom. This change
has necessitated the removal of all
the reserve stock to a new warehouse,
which is being constructed at tbe back
of Kelly, Douglas & Company's premises, at a cost of another $4,000. The
alteration to the basement also gives
the store a second frontage on Front
street, whither thc old glass window
that originally faced on Columbia
street Is being moved.
The old front has been changed be
yond recognition, and the enlarged
store will be approached by a hand
some arcade enclosing an "island"
window fitted wilh prismatic glass.
Mr. .lames W. Conner, manager of the
store, nlao states that it is the intention of the management to Install a
new electric elevator, so that shoppers
wiil be able to reach any floor without
the, fatigue of climbing the stairs. Hot-
water heating Is also being put In, so
that lt w~l be aiiually pleasant shoD
ping at Lees, Ltd., alike in hot and
cold weather. In short, It may be said
that evi ry step has been taken to ensure the comfort and convenience of

Prince Rupert. Nov. 29.^-A dramatic
incident in the recent flre, which destroyed tho government buildings at
Prince Rupert, occurred, wljen the
prisoners were released to flght the

Nanking, Nov. ��.������Rebels are In
codjrol of practically the entire city
lodSy after a fierce hand-to-hand encounter, during which both sides lost
heavily. A rebel reserve column,
thrdwn to the flank of General Feng
Kwo Chang's Imperial force, brought
victory to the revolutionists and dia
aster to the loyalists Just when it
seemed that the soldiers of the proclaimed republic were to be overwhelmed.
General Feng's army Is In Imminent
danger of annihilation, the ranks be-
| terribly depicted as a result of the
fighting of the last few days.
Rebels entered the city from three
different gates and succeeded In driving the imperialists to the center of
the city, where they were cornered
and mowed down under terrific flre
from light guns. Then followed an attack with sword and bayonet. The
fierce encounter that ensued was go
ing against the rebels when the flank
movement was executed against the
imperialists, turning the tide of battle.
The imperialists were forced to cut
their way through the rebel lines surrounding them to get to safety.
The Imperial loss was 1C00 men.

Canadian Pacific steamer Tees, ashore
at Kyuquot, west coast of Vancouver
Island, were picked up at 3 a.m. yesterday by the United States revenue
cutter Tahoma, which immediately
proceeded to her assistance.
Nothing definite can be gleaned as
to whether the passengers of the
Tees are ln danger, as since the distress message was flashed to the
Tahoma, the wireless operator aboard

on the west coast of Vancouver Island,

the vessel was not caught.
The Tees left Plcto; la on November
20 with cargo anl passengers for the
west coast and at the time the mes
sage for help was sent out was on
the return voyage to the capital. Some
anxiety was felt for the safety of the
Tees during the past two days at the
Canadian Paciflc headquarters at Victoria, as she was that much overdue
on her schedule.

Vancouver, Nov. 29.���Held up at tb*
end of a heavy revolver Teller A. IX
McLeod had no other alternative tide
morning to handing over a wad of
$1,000 to a man who entered th*
Royal Bank of Canada at 10:46. "01ve
me a thousand," aald the robber to.
the unsuspecting-clerk, and he gave tt.
It was at the branch bank at the-
corner of Napier and Park Drive that
this daring robbery occurred. After
he had secured the money, the thtel
wasted no time in disappearing towards False Creek, and although a police officer gave chase within two minutes of the hold-up no trace has
found of the wanted man. At
present time Detectives McDonald j
Green are on the trail, but ao far
have not reported any success.
The teller describes the man aa at
a foreign appearance of about 28 or
30 years of age, not very tall, but slim.
with a pale, clean-shaven face. He
wore no mask at the time ot the hold-
up, but the way in which he preaent-
ed the revolver at the teller's
was described as distinctly bus
like. Tbe bills which he sec
were mostly of small denomln
but two Canadian Bank of Commerce-
$100 bills were included In the roll,
and several Royal Bank twenties.
It was only last spring that the -
same hank was robbed of $500 by two -
masked men ln full view of several
persons. On tbat occasion Mr. Jardine, manager of the branch, wa*
marched into the rear of the building
and shut up In his own vault. The

This means that many, we do not say
all, visit this country after they have J
haased the zenith Of their career.
Bpeaklng about the Mountain Ash
Choir ln this regard it is agreeable to
know that the very opposite Is true.
They are in th height of their powers. At Carmathen, Wales, before a
pavilion that seats from 16,000 to 18,-
000 spectators, the choir bas competed and frequently won the national
prize of Wafes. Some twenty-flve ]
other choirs were there, as earnest
and ambitious as they, with just as
msny supporters and well wishers.
Tbla is a fact of tremendous significance, and is eloquent enough of
whether the Mountain Ash Choir ls tn
Its prime or not.

under which Hindus now In British
Columbia, will beallowed, under strict
regulations, to bring their wives and
families to Canada. While tbe Brit-
lab Columbia members, and many
eastern members, agree with much
that has been to said in favor of Hindus and acknowledge their claims as
citizens of the Empire, they point
out that they might soon overrun the
coast if the existing regulations were
relaxed. They recognize that it Is a
question of great importance, which
must be taken up with tbe imperial
authorities before a solution can be
arrived at.
The delegation, in addition to asking for permission to bring their wives
to Canada, practically asked for the
abololltlon of all the regulatloaa
adpted by the Immigration department
���ome time ago to restrict Asiatic Immigration, including tba provision that
Hindus who come tb Canada must
come direct from India. This they
said, was Immpotsible because there

to strengthen the ties of empire. He
has expressed himself on the latter

the safest guide to the Intentions of

Well Known Tr��veler Give* Some
Interesting Facte of the
Mr. John Home, a well-known traveller last yew made a trip to Tripoli,
and wrote a graphic account of hla
exierlcnces. His starting point was
the Tsland of DJerba, on the north
coast of Africa, where he had been
resting. Some extracts may be of Interest at the present Juncture:
By steamer from DJerba to Tripoli
Is only one night along the coast, and
when I went oa deck next morning
et Bunriee. we were anchored about
200 yards from the shore. Inside a
line of dangerous looking rocks, which
Just showed above the water. In tlie
hands of any oilier nation this reef
woul.l have been turned Into an excellent harbor, but under Turkish
rule It remains a serious menace to
ebipt lng. and ln rough weather often
forces steamers to pass without stopping at all. But the Wack rocks held
my attention only a moment. Along
the wator's -edge lay the mest truly
eastern town I had e\��r seen. Before
Its snowy domes and spear-like mln-
aretB, Alplers. Tunis and even Con-^
Btanlinople paled and were as nothing. Tripoli could not lay claim to th4
splendor of these others, but here was
no mixture of east and west, no blend
log of styles. It was the purity of
lino and the complete absence of Eur-
oponn architecture which made one
feel that tbla, at last, was the true
Arab east.
Cosmopolitan Crowd.
Outside, all Islam seemed crowded
tn ter the narrow picturesque streets.
Turks, in badly fitting frock coats,
rubbed     shoulders     with    Tunisian
I what has been aald to the contrary, I
I found ttoe natives quite friendly, and
| was never molested ln any of my long
; walks ln tbe town and oasis. The
beauty of the latter must be seen to
be understood. No running water exists in Tripoli, and every drop for
these eight square miles of palms and
gardens has to be raised from the
wells, or norlas, which abound everywhere. The system Is the ancient
one, universal in the east, by which a
mule or camel walks up and down
an inclined plane, and raises the water in a goat skin, which empties
itself into a wooden trouhg at the top
of the well. The creaking of the
wooden rollers never ceases, night or
day, and as the wells are often entirely covered with bushes, the sound
gives a strange Impression of In vis
ible workers, laboring underground
ln the deserted oasis.
Inferno of Fairyland.
On the south the desert touches the
very walls of the town, extending
away ln arid grandeur over hundreds
of miles ef grey bills and valleys. Under the terrible rays of the midday
sun It seems an Inferno of monotony
and heat; but at sunset a very fairyland of rose and purple takes the
place of the ralpitatlng grey. The
desert Is alive. A shepherd with his
flock of goats appears from nowhere,
wending his way slowly homeward.
In the distance one hears the sound
of approaching bells, and over the
hillocks rises a long line of camels,
moving slowly, majestically, every
line of their blue and red trappings
standing out sharply ln the falling
light. The curtains of the huge baskets in which the women travel have
been thrown back, and one catches a
glimpse of dark, langorous eyes and
pearly teeth before they are closed
once more as the first palms are
reached. The Arab rarely gives outward sign of the Joy or sorrow he
yard  was deserted and' presented no .
particular   interest.     A   line  ct   well)
built stables told me that the placet
was a cavalry barracks���without men
or horses.   I retired as I had come,
unmolested; but outside the gate the
(Sound of hoofs coming from the direction of the town made me hesitate.
A moment later an officer and four
men gallowed up and dismounted. The
officer,  a  young  man   of  about  30,
showed none of the shabbiness of the
irdlnary Turk.    Not a speck of dust
w the ^ell-fltting dark blue uniform;
aot a strap or buckle out ot place.   I
looked and wondered.   But the men���
vhat a contrast!    No smartness here.
Their clothes had been patched and
repatched, till not a shred of the original uniform   remained;    only one
wore what had once been hoots.   And
still they are splendid soldiers, and
because of their rags and  unkempt
appearance one  Is  forced  to admiro
them all the more.
With the exception of a few Important garrisons, the Turkish soldier
hardly ever receives any pay. Each
man gets two loaves of bread a day,
and ln order to have a few pence for
jthelr otber needs, they generally Bell
one of them. At Tripoli I often saw
them standing ln rows ln the market
place, each with hls basket of bread
in front of him, doing business like
the ordinary bakers. But to return to
my story. The officer salaamed politely and remarked in excellent
French that he must ask me not to
remain where I was,, as foreigners
were not allowed to approach the
barracks. For a moment I was about
to comply with his request, but the

Allah bas willed that tbey Should
arrive; that suffices, it Is the admirable, unattainable "Kismet" for which
Arabs,  Bedouins,  Arabs  from  Egypt. the hurrying    European   must   sigh
and Syria, and even Soudanese, black
as ebony, oily and shiny, picked their
way among the sleeping dogs and
heaps of garbage. And the odor of
It ail! How I love tfie smell of the
east! That subtle mixture of homing
charcoal and spices, with Mff, chunam
or coffee thrown ln, according to the
shop ene happens to be passing. Not
exactly a pleasant odor tn Itself, bnt
one feeds that the east would be notblng without It.
As tbe consular body and a few merchants are the only Europeans in Tri-
fin, It stands to reason that plotting
and Intrigue Are the order of tbe day.
I was most amused at .bearing tbe secret intentions with which I was credited. Nobody could believe that a
simple tourist would come to Tripoli
without aa arriere pensee. Each country Imagines that llo neighbor Is preparing tc "nrot��<*t" the piece la the
More or lees <..oti��.nt future.    "After
in vain.
As I turned away towards the town
In tbe gathering twilight, a large modern looking building among the palms
caught my attention. And on nearer
Inspection It turned out to be one of
the large barracks which tbe Turks
have built within the last few years.
Now I knew that foreigners are not
allowed even to approach' any military
post, bnt my curiosity was aroused,
and I determined to get Inside, lf only
for a moment. There was a large
gateway ln the middle of the long
white wall, so I walked boldly towards
lt, expecting every moment to be
turned back or even arrested.
A Skeleton Garrison.
However, notblng of the sort oc-!
curred. To my astonishment not a
soul was to be seen. Under the archway on nue alt *t guard room, on the
biuer fc : liiler one . f.h a dVan and
feels.  No quickening of pace, no won*, ��tuat)on seemed so amusing that at
all risks, I felt I must confide in him.
SO I replied tbat I hid been ao surprised to find the place deserted that
I had already examined the whole of
It The quiet laugh that greeted tMs
statement relieved my mind considerably.
"Ah," he said, "what ls the use ot
hiding the truth from you Europeans?
You find out everything. These barracks were built for a thousand men,
and I am bere with only twenty." He
went on to tell me, that he had been
only a few months In Tripoli, having
been banished from Constantinople
for some reason which he himself
"Will you go back?" I asked.
"Inch Allah" (lf Allah wills) was
the reply.
And I went on my way, wondering

The New Westminster   represents-
In the heart   of   the   Addiondack
mountains,  which  skirt  the eastern
boundary  line of the United  States
and Canada, lies a picturesque little
village of the name of Saranac, whose
associations   entitle  It  to  a  worthy
plBce among the homes and haunts
of  Robert Louis  Stevenson.    It will
be remembered that shortly after his
fathers death in May, 1887. the death
of R.  L.  S. was such that his medical   advisers  deemed   a   change   of
c climate Imperative. Proceeding with
his wife, mother and stppscn to the
United   States  with  the  Intention  of
seeking   a  .temporary   home   in   the
mountains of Colorado, Stevenson was
advised hy his friends ln New York
to try the Addlrondacks Instead, and
there' he took up his quarters in October, 1887, remaining urttil April of
the following year.   "It seems a first-
rate place." he wrote sbon after his
Arrival.   ""Ve have a Tlouse in the eya
of  many  winds,  witii  a  view  of  <*
piece of running water���Highland, all

many  hills���Highland,  also,  but  for
the lack' of weather.
The favorite impression formed at
first does not seem to have lasted,
however, a winter of exceptional severity completely disposing of any
'thoughts he rafcy have entertained of
settling for any length of time in tne
neighborhood. The climate, we are
told, "comprised every variety of unpleasantness: It rained, it snowed, It
uleetetf. IF blew, It was thick fog, it
froze���the cold was Arctic: it thawed
���the discomfort was worse: and it
combined   these different  phases   in
and a large part of tbe color for one
of hls greatest works���"The Master
of Ballantrae." Tbe idea of a story
dealing with the vicissitudes of the
House of Durrlsdeer had long beeu
ln bis mind, but lt was not until that
night, which he has so vividly de-;
scribed, on tbe balcony of the wooden house ln which he lived, outside
the hamlet of Saranac, with tbe
sound of the river "contending with
ice and boulders," In hls ears, tbat the
vision came to him of the grim tragedy with Its final scene ln the "bar-
In rout, wilderness' of the Adiron-
It waa at Saranac, too, tbat he
wrote the ballad of "Tlconderoga,"
and the series of articles for Scrib-
ner's Magazine, which ill I so much to
advance bis popularity ln the United
States. >
The Impression probably formed by
most Stevensonians froni the author's
account of his own experience, am'
from the gloomy narrative of the
Master's Journey In tlie wilderness, Is
that the Adrlondacks are a mountain
solitude, black, barren, and almost uninhabitable. They would be agreeably surprised, us I was, to find that,
whatever the region may be like iu
winter, lt is in summer one of the
most delightful retreats to be found
on the American continent. What R.
L. S. depleted as a barbarous wilderness has become a favorite pleasure groun.l and health resort, a kind
of fashionable Arcadia, with palatial
summer houses, up-to-date hotels and
finely equipped sanltorla.
In Its bracing altitudes New York
'society" seeks relief from the strenuous whirl of Broadway; thither the
Wall street millionaire, tired of "do-
in;; Europe" In a hurry, repairs for tho
rest cure and a taste of the simple
life. The Adlrondacks are today, in-,
deed, the Trossacbs of th:> eastern

he stayed Its proper name, is their
Peace Profound.
Set In a valley, lt commands a magnificent view of hill, lake and forest.
A quarter of a mile away, the stream
which appeal* d so strongly to the
iicai t of It. L. B.i reminding him, as
it did, bouldered bed, murmuring In
tones subdued the song that was once
in inspiration to the isolated dweller
in the house above.
From the surrounding hills, with
their long sloping stretches of pine,
steals the delicious scent of balsam,
filling the valley with a soft healing
sweetness that is infinitely soothing,
and communicating to the little village, dozing ln the summer sunlight,
an added sense of drowsiness. The
prevailing Imjsresslcn is that of a profound silence broken only by echoes
thrown off peace, of the hush of eternal hills, by Scar and Saddle Back-
names which Stevenson himself might
well have invented. The spell of the
place "is such that one Is tempted to
linger on the slope of a hill and drim;
in tbe ncctar-llke air and the beauty
of a scene which even our own highlands   coi'Id  Bcarcely  surpass.
But the spirit of Stevenson calU.
and we must away to seek the house
where he lived and wrote 'Tbe Master
of Ballantrae.", It was not without
some difficulty that we found It. Saranac lake, like most holiday resorts,
ls indifferent to Its past, and unconscious of any other claims to greatness than those represented by its attractiveness. To the desires of its
numerous and well-to-do visitors tho
inhabitants cater with an enthusiasm
that is as profitable as it ts keen, but
if they know the history of their own
place they are not particularly disposed to impart it to strangers.
Wben I Inquired the way to Stevenson's cottage, I was told that nobody of that name lived lu the neighborhood. Another intelligent native
whom I consulted solemnly asked if
Mr. Stevenson kept a boarding
bouse?" Everybody In Saranac lake
keeps such an establishment, so that
according to local lights the question was perhaps not unnatural.
Reference to the guide book of the
district was equally unavailing.
It contained beautifully written descriptions of the scenery and of the
advantages of camp life in the Adlrondacks, but not a word about R.
L. 8. At last I remembered that the
family with whom Stevenson bad
boarded was named Baker, and with
this as a clue I soon obtained the
information desired.
In the Eye of the Winds.
It turned out that there were several families of tbe name of Bakor ln
tho neighborhood, but the proprietor
of one ot the hotels had an Idea that
a "writer fellow" had some time
or other stayed with "Mrs. Baker on
the hill," and to "Mrs. Palter on the
hill" I was directed, to find, rurc\
enough, that her house was the place
I sought.
If confirmation had been needed. It
would have been supplied by Steven-
sons own description of his home��� i
"a wooden house with a verandah on |
a hill overlooking the river." There
it'stood "in the eyo ot the winds,"
just as be left it���a plain but comfortable looking dwelling, its roof brushed by the branches of a few line
trees, which formed the fringe of a
belt stretching behind to within leach
of the mountain summit.
To cross the bridge over the stream,
climb tHe hill and pay my respects to
Stevenson's landlady was the only
thing for a Stevensontan to do. I was
met at the door by a tall, kindly-eyed
lady, who seemed rather pleased
when informed that 1 waa not in
search of rooms, for, as she avvlained,
her house was alteady fllle.l with
boarders, and she "Just tated to tun

seemed to her liking, she invited me
Into the sitting room. This was in all
probability what Stevenson described
as the "prophet's chamber." and here
it was that be did his writing and
entertained visitors. Among the most
welcome of these was Dr. Trudeau,
who attended him while be remained
at Saranac. "was all the winter at my

lt than the good lady probably realized.
Altogether her reminiscences, little
personal touches, showed clearly that
many of tbe characteristics of Stevenson which Impressed those who knew
him best had not escaped the vigilant
but kindly eye of hla hostess at Saranac.
Like Dr. Trudeau. Mrs. Baker was
i^LA2"2���*"!LS ka..drir>' that Stevenso-n had not stayed
tor and friend were rewarded by the
author   afterwards   with   a   complete
set of his works, each bearing on the
fly leaf a quaint dedication.
Dr. Trudeau.
Dr. Trudeau still lives at SJaranac
Lake, which as a health resort he may
be snld to have founded. Stricken with
tuberculosis while a young man studying for his profession, he decided to
try tho open-air cure in the Adlrondacks, and the resultB were so satisfactory that he established and toolc
charge of a permanent sanatorium,
which was among the first ln America, and which today is regarded as
the best equipped on the continent.
Dr. Trudeau tried hard to persuade
R. L. S. to undergo the open-air treatment, which, he Is certain, would at
any rate have prolonged his life, but
the novelist would have none of it,
pleading that the remedy would be
worse than the disease. Brought Into
contact with him under circumstances
which made for Intimate friendship,
the doctor got to know the real Stevenson better than most, and tlje daya
and nights he spent with hlm*around
the fire In Mrs. Baker's sitting rocm.
or out ln the woods, are among his
most cherished recollections.
But to return to Mrs. Baker: I
found her, as I have indicated, most
willing to talk of her
and her Impressions
less interesting because they were
chiefly of the little home traits that
a more profound observer would have
ove"��oked. She had read Bome of his
books, but it was evident that they
hai not appealed to her so strongly as
the author himself. His addiction to
the cigarette, his habit of lying In
bed after breakfaBt propped up with
pillows and reading and smoking, his
restlessness, his interest In everything
and everybody around him, his attachment to the fire, "which did not radiate," his unbounded delight over
what she regarded as "trifles"���all
ihese characteristics had been noted
nnd remembered as Indicative of a
person out of the ordinary.
His Whistle and Non��'nse.
P.ut what had impressed her most
was his unfailing good spirits. "Hc
came here very sick, but j on would
have thought he was the happiest
man alive. With bis whistle and his
nonsense he kept us al) ln good humor." He Jiked to talk with the
mountain guides, of whom Mr. Baker
was one, and he would gSl them to
describe their experiences in return
for which be would tell them stories
ot his own travel*. It was evidently
from this source that he gathered
Wia�� of th<* material wMcTi Wjaitm-n-
ed to sucb excellent account tn'TTbe
Master of Ballantrae." !'
It would have delighted the jheart
of Stevenson himse'f to I have beard
Mrs. r.aker describe him as a ("fino!
talker." It appeared that he 'often
found his way into the kitchen; and.
with his back to the stove would
"talk as I never heard anyone talk
before.' Sbe could not remember
what it was all about, "but some of
the things he seemed to say ip Jest
struck me as being very serious," a
remark which had more profundity in
longer ln the Adlrondacks: "she was
sure lt would have done him good."
When he left In the spring of 1888 I:
was his Intention to return, she said.
A number of his belongings were left
with her, and when he came back he
was to go to a hunter's cottage some
way down fBe valley. But he never
came. His belonging* were afterwards sent for, and Saranac knew him
no more.
In that plain frame house on the
hill, however, his memory still lives

Anelent Customs That Are Still Kept

annually presents tbe king with a pie.
Ajuiost from time immemorial Gloucester until the year 1834 followed the
custom of expressing its loyalty to tbe
throne by sending to tbe sovereign a
lamprey pie. In 1834 tbe custom was
suspended, but It was revived in 181)3
and bas since continued.
It was felt that the year of tbe diamond jubilee required some special effort, and therefore tbe 1887 pie. wbicb
wns in May dispatched to Balmoral
upon a gold dish, was of a more than
usually elaborate character. Tbls pie
weighed twenty pounds and was
adorned with truffles, line prawns on
gold skewers and aspic Jelly. On the
top was a reprcseufalion ot ihe royal
crown and cushion, wltb a scepter to
which w?re attached streamers of roval
blue, aud at the base were four gameri

Where Students Find That Schooling
Is Far From a Cinch.
��� A Chinese schoolboy sets off one
���fine morning when 7 or 8 years old
to enter on his instructional course.
iHe makes the most profound obels-
lance to his teacher. His parents
provide the table at which and Ihe
stool on which he sits. They also
supply the "four precious articles,
the ink slab, the ink cake, the pen
or brush for writim.' and ths paper.
' He will have no need at first of the
jwriting materials, all his time being
'employed in memorizing the books
given him. Perhaps a dozen boy��.
each a class by himself, are busy on
his entry. Each is shouting his task
at the top of his voics, the teacher
sitting at h's table in all the somnolent wakefulness of a judge. No
wrong pronounciation or intonation
escapes his practcal ear, and correction is frequent.

ever, that is the object just now, but
sound and memorising. I
Then he will be introduced to the
book of surnames, 400 in number,

the land, the "Thousand Character

A teamster Jn tbe employ of one of
tbe big tanneries in tbe went Uud a
laughable yet trying adventure wltb a
bear wblle ou bis way from tbe woods
wltb a load of bark. As be emerged
from tbe woods wltb hla team be
stopped to give the males a breathing
spell und to eat bis dinner, which be
carried ln a tin bucket He bad
scarcely opened his bucket and begun
to eat wben a bear came out of the
woods on one side of tbe road, only'
two or three rods In the rear of the
wagon. Bruin sauntered along, paying
no attention to tbe team, but the teamster, desirous'of seeing what tbe bear
would do, threw a bit of salt pork ln
bis way. Tbe bear stopped, smelted at
the pork and gulped It down greedllyi
Tben the animal, noting the source
of tbe morsel, came toward tbe wagon
and rose on his haunches as lf to nay
that another bit of pork would prove
Tbe teamster laughed and tossed out
a second piece, which bruin devoured,
and then be posed again. But tbe
teamster wanted tbe rest of bis dlncer
himself and paid no attention to the
shaggy Intruder. The beggar, seeing
that tbe teamster war no longer aware
of bis presence, snorted sharply two or
three times and walked back and forth,
across tbe road as If reconnolterlng
the situation. Presently be growled,
but tbe teamster, thinking that tbe
beast would go away lf be got nothing
further, continued bis meal.
The bear ventured near nnd flnallji
climbed up the load of bark at tbfl
hind end of the wagon. The man wujj
unpleasantly surprised at tbls movement of bruin's, as be was wholly
Accordingly he threw n bit of pork
Into the road, at the same time yelling to the bear to direct Its attention
to the meat The bear dropped down
und went and picked It up. but ns
soon as lt was swallowed and there
was no more forthcoming be made another charge upou tbe wagon.
The teamster started the mules onward, but knew that be could not hope
to escape with his heavy load of burk.
An Idea struck him. He would coax
the bear on by feeding tbe lunch to
blm until tbey should come to a
frlend'a bouse a mile or two along the
road. Tben be would get a gun and
shoot the old fellow.
The teamster snt on tbe bark, facing
backward, bis big dinner bucket ut
band. Wben tbe bear came up with
tbe wagon and threatened to cltmb
upon.tbe load tbe teamster tossed out
n piece of pork. Tbe supply of this
edible was limited, so be tossed tbe
beast a slice of bread, wbicb fell butter side up. Bran nosed lt, tben
licked the butter oft and left It.
The next slice fell butter side down,
and tbe bear ignored lt. Boiled eggs
and cheese fared the same. Bruin
wanted pork. Tbe teamster dealt tbis
out in small bits, which failed to satisfy, and tbe bear was growing ugly and
At length the teamster saw bis friend
at work In a Held and called to blm to
ran for bis gnu. The man seemed to
realise tbe state of tbe case aud set
off on a dead run for bis bouse, a
quarter of a mile distant But tbe
���npply of pork was out before be returned, and the poor teamster was In
a sorry plight
The bear climbed upon the load. The
teamster tossed him tbe last piece of
pork and then Jumped from hla wagon
and tore down tbe road. Bruin, probacy thinking that tbe teamster was
fleeing wltb a stock of covered pork,
started after him. The terrified man
bad n fair start but be stumbled over
a stone nnd fell full length, nnd the
bear was close upon bim when there
came the loud report of a gun.
The friend bad come at last Tbe
teamster rose snd looked round. There

The tenmster declared that never again

Young Woman Making Pile of Money
Out of the Industry.
Frog farming ls an enterprise carried on by the American girl of today.
Mizs Isahclle Morgan Is a pioneer In
this line. Kefore taking up the occupation of frog farming she was a
stenographer ln Baltimore. The strict
business training then gained she considers the basis of her success.
Whin the strain of office hours toid
on MIbs Morgan's health, her physicians ordered her Into th�� open air
and she returned to ber home on a
farm. A progressive, ambitious girl
In touch with large Interests finds
ouch a situation difficult, in looking
hack Mlss Morgan considers It the
most fortunate Incident of her career,
for she embarked on her present business.
Maryland is one of the six states
that lead In supplying the country
with frogs, and the marshy lowlands
on Miss Morgan's father's property offered Bultablo environment for the
The   bullfrog   ls   the   variety   with
which it ls more profitable to stock
a farm, as their large size makes them
especially valuable as a table delicacy
and their greedy habits render them
easy to capture.    When sold for food
full  grown  bullfrogs bring 4rom one
to four dollars rer dozen.   Especially
j large, fine specimens are shipped by
I Miss Morgan for use In biological lab-
.oratorio.   These often bring as big a
price as three dollars each.
The frog reserve of this Maryland
i girl  consists  of  a  series  of  marshy
I ponds,   each   enclosed   by   fine   wire
fencing.   This prevents the escape of
j the   frogs   and   insures   their   safety
: against  Enakes   and   turtles.      From
] May  to  July   the  ponds  are  closely
watched for epes. which are removed
to another enclosure.    Here the eggs
hatch and the giant bullfrog tadpoles
often reach a length of bIx or seven
Inches.    Thev  are carefully guarded,
as not only the bul'< of the full grown
frog,  hut also   the number  of years
necessary  for   this  growth    depends
largely upon the si7e attained by the
tadpole  before its transformation.
Tho young frog, when It develops, ls
removed   to  a   third   pond   where he
can neither molest the tadT oles or be
harmed  by  bis  full  ero-.-n  relatives.
Here he spends his time briPd ln the
mud anl moss except at niTht. when
he  comes  out  to  feed   ujrn  the  In-
i gents,   dead   flsh.   larvae   and   other
j delicacies  that  make  up the young
��� froe's menu.
i The frops Miss Morean s'ils for eit-
. ing purposes have the le-"�� skinned
land slipped in Ice water. The choice
.specimens destined for laboratot^jjse
iare first selected.
I It requires some time to establish a
well organized frog reserve. When
once the business Is launched. Miss
Morgan's experience shows that it is
. both Interesting and profitable.

ver yesterday, is friendly to revolutionary cause, and although, when he
left the city, there was little aign
there of the convulsion which is
awakening the dragon from his sleep
of generations, yet the whole Chinese
population was with difficulty restrained from showing open sympathy with the revolutionary cause In
the southern and central provinces,
which had already made great progress when he left to join Ihe C. P, It.
liner, and he fully anticipated that
,the city, whose possession has always
l.een a determining factor in the mastery of the national capital, would ao
over to the republican forces without
nny effective resistance. Thc struggle
w.is recognized by all patties in China as Inevitable, and the white r^si-
drntB. military and civil, realf/.ej that
a crisis wah al hand.
Tientsin was too far remeved from
the seat of military operations for
tliem to have any special knowledge
of tho condition of affairs in the d's-
affected areas, but there was no doubt
that the progress of the country, while
It would suffer from tke temporary
dislocation of business, would go far
towards receneration when the republican administration was able to establish itself.
The major asked a number of questions about the progress of the insurrection since hr* left China, and expressed surprise that the Investment
of Nanking had not yet taken place.
However, he nald, no doubt the
leaders of the revolution were anxious to secure the country around
then before attacking the southern
capital. He believed the Insurrectionary forces were strenK enough tn
compel the surrender of General
^hang. and that the wave of revolution would then sweep northward towards Pekine.
He was not s'irnrlsed to hear thst
tbo Prince Regent's rife whs reported to have escaped lo Mukden, for
rumors were current in Tientsin when
he left that the Imperial family had
pecretlv withdrawn from th�� capital.
