AROUND THE WORLD,
Bombay, India, Jan. 31, 1903,
My Indian tour as fust planned em
braced 3,000 itillbB, but I llAVe kept
adding to it until llio nctunl distance
covorcd by train nRRrogtite1,348o uillos,
a distance if applied to America would
reach not only front New York to Sun
Francisco but would also extend to a
point farther out in tlio Pacific ocann
than the fastest ocean greyhound could
reach in a day's travel.
I entered India thrao waek ago at
its southermosl port, droMad according
to the ciiRloinequtttorinl citios and
traveled so far northward that I was
compelled to do ft-hat I had ncvar douo
beforc-'-drafl into use tVo suits of
heavy underclothing and a "Forst
King" chamois vest besides a light suit
of underwear and the heaviest suit of
clhtlrcs that I had' ever worn togethor
with n heavy overcoat and three pairs
of stockings', and still I shivered with
the biting cold that seemed to sweep
down from the eternal snows of the
Himalayas, One can scarcely im
agine the extent of this country, sup
porting a q'uarter of a billion people,
without giving it a personal encoun tcr
as I have done. A country that re
quires Great Britain to maintain 225,-
000 soldiers, (nearly a quaitcr of a
million) in order to control it is no
small concern on the back alley of na
tions. If some chieftain should come
forth with sufficient organizing power
tc unify India and China, with their
more than half a billion people, against
the world, the kingdoms of earth would
be reduced to a scrap heap. Ho who
asserts that the Indians cannot fight is
talking against time. The British ofli.
ccrs say.and I have interviewed a dozen
of them, that the natives as they are
now trained fight like demons.
Among the many surprises that have
come to my notice is that of the Ameri
can commercial invasion of Asia. As
1 wrote the last sentence, the afternoon
tea, served at 4 o'clock thrpughout Asia,
was hroiiRht to my desk, and with it
were cruokcrs bearing the American
stamp in large letters. Every conceiv
able kind of American goods is on sale
almost everywhere. The American
trading company, the North American
trading company, and the Chinese
Amcucan trading company aie the
largest concerns, supplying the local
dealers in Asia, with offices and store
rooms in tho larger cities. Thev are so
firmly entrenched in Shanghai and
Hong Kous that tho British firms are
wondering what tho result of the in
vasion will bo. I havu interviewed and
been interviewed bwinany a subject of
His Mnjoaty, King Udward, and every
one is absolutely amazed at the almoht
limitless lesourcea of Amorica and all
prophesy tremendous development in
the future if wo keep level headed men
in power. I have been in company
with a Btitish major who was in the
campaign against Pekin. He spent
his leisure time among the American
soldiers and is verbose in his compli
ments upon tho American government
because ho says it pays its soldiers
better aud also gives them a much
more liberal allowance and greater
variety of food than the British govern
ment allows its warriors. The more I
see ourselyes as others see us, the
prouder I become that I am an Ameri
can. Great Britain deserves oommeuda-
tion for the interest she manifests in
providing for the famine suffers, hav
ing at present lGoo,ooo toward a per
manent fund for their relief, aud at
present only 22,500 people needing
help from the fund on account of
famine. I saw several ot the rescued
who had been eating mud aud roots
and leayes. I have shed tears over
India and, I confess, it was difficult for
me to break away from those, in
authoity who offered me good positions
to induce me to return to India. Last
night as I was preparing to retire, a
special messcnfier came to the Great
Western hotel with another communi
cation soliciting my-services for a term
of years. How can I resist the temp
tation? I can consider the matter for
a year or two and if it becomes quite
probable that I would be more useful
in India than in America the question
of continent swapping will solve itself.
And besides all this the "Mistress of
the Manse" may have something to
Anchor Lino is almost ready to sail for
Liverpool, and I am randy to loaya
India: but I loave with tho argosy of
inomorv ladon deck docp with Sconos
that can nbvof bo tofad'catoxl, arid I in
sist upon leaving Aft a parting gflllitc
the testimony that if I had all tho gold
of all the world at my Command 1
could gladly offer it as a- imcrifice for
tho emancipation of India's millions,

Friday morning, his subject bojng
"Nature's Weather Bureau," showing
how much may be gained by keeping
our eyos open and observing the little
things around us.
Miss Hall of Crawford spent the

Monday to visit the normal.
Miss Inice McCorklo, one of the suc
cessful teachers of the Alliance school,

Senator Brown of this district, spent
chapel hour with us aud gave an en
couraging talk upon tho "Advantages
of tho Junior Normal" arousing the en
thusiasm of all present. Senator
Blown was one of the principal work
ers in behalf of the normal; realizing
the need of such a school in the west
ern part of tho state, and tho disad
vantages under which we labored. The
success of the school repays him for
his trouble and time givon for our bene
fit. The advanced class in arithmetic,
under the instruction of Prof. McCoy,
is making great headway. The work,
mensuration, is made interesting by
the use of paper cuttings; bringing the
students in contact with real materials,
thus making it practical.
Little Lee Kustin of Hcniingford
spent Monday and Tuesday taking in
the delightful work of the model school.

At Agra I addressed tho students of
the Fenolo Medical college wliere the
same course is pursued as in America,
using the same English text books.
As men are not allowed to enter the
homes of the high cast Hindus, lady
physicians are an absolute necessity,
though they are a modern God-send to
those hermit women. One glimpse at
my audiemce at Agra would knock all
objections to tho mission problem high
er than Gilroy's kite.

vited. The number of students taking ad
vantage of the dining hall is steadily
increasing and find board of the best at
the low rate of S2.75 per week.
Naturally each class in school im
agine that they are doing the best work
aud have the ablest instructors, but
tho class in geometry and physic under
the direction of Prof. Philpott are quite
sure that none can bo more interest
ing, and no teacher more enthusiastic.
Wednesday night Dean Fordyco of
the Weslcyan university lectured in the
opera house, his subject being "The
Peculiar Physical Growth of Youth."
Taking up the life of children between
the ages of twelve and eighteen, he
gave many truths that parents as well
as teachera might carry away with
them and use for tho good of the boys
and girls. Tho lecturer is a specialist
in tho study of human nature and un
derstands the inclinations, ambitions
and need of watchful helping carb as
the yputh approaches the age of ma
turity. News has reached the normal this
week of tho unanimous election of Miss
Nellie Schlee, our popular primary in
structor, to a most desirable position as
first grade teacher ' in the Lincoln
schools. Miss Schlee has made many
warm friends in Alliance who are a
unit in saying that she well deserves
this promotion and know that the Lin
coin board of education has made a
wise choice. Miss Schlee will resign
her position in the Hastings school to
accept the place' given her in Lincoln.
Nothing is gained by one place or in
