I)i'l;im on the Coin.
Thero has Ijecn some talk about the
advisability of changing thu designs on
United States coin on thu ground that thu
present 'symbols aro not appropriate nor
artistic. Director Leech lit credited with
favoring such u scheme, but it is meeting
with opposition In some iiuurters. There
is a bill in congress authorizing thu steps
that would Ih) preliminary to such a move,
but there is considerable t.Uk that it will

is unite evident that ho does not look on it

An Ancient lluln.

TO CROSS T'lE ENGLISH CHANNEL.
A Ciiiiitiltintliiu llrltlgn nnclTutinrl Hclirmr.
Hlilnli Muy Hiirrrnl.
A most unique- Idea U tho one. that has
emanated from tho busy brain of M 1
lliiueau Varilla, nud which seems likely to
sol e the problem of rapid transit across
the English channel. To devise a method
to escape the turbulent passage, by boat of
that tempest swept patch of wntcr, niitl
bring the tight little Island Into closer
communion from tho standpoint of hours
nnd minutes with tho continent, bus long
been the dream and ambition of commer
cial England And either the method
of bridge or tunnel would long ago have
h.on adopted but for tho fear Hint the cov
eted road to France would, In tho event of
war with that country, prove tho road to
England's ruin by affording tho enemy a
menus of speedily Implanting an army on
Hut the Ingenious Frenchman's scheme
dissipates all that, and hero Is how he pro
poses to do It, by what ho calls a "mixed
solution," "bridge tunnul" method, lie
would build a great bridge out from tho
shorn on either side Into the sea for as long
n distance n was advisable or necessary,
each bridge totally Independent of tho
other Then at the sea end of each bridge
ho wottld construct shafts, either In
clined or ertleal, which would contain
elevators suillclently largo to lower or
ralsu at ono time as many trains of cars as
nbsnluto safety mlghtdlctnto. Thesoshafts
would bisunk to a sulllclent depth below
the bed of the liver to allow a tunnel to ho
constructed connecting tho two shafts and
t litis tlio bridges. You would leave I)oer
In a comfortiiblo railway carriage, the
train would speed across the English end
of the bridge to tho elevator, down jou
would go to the bottom of the mm and into
the tunnel, run across that distance, como
Up by the elevator on the French bridge
and speed on to Calais, which you would
reach in an hour from starting
- V '? "" " -
tiii: nti:NTiiMAN'fl plan.
And suppose there should spring up a
war' Well, n couplo of well direct ed heavy
shot would knock the elevators and the
connections Into tho channel and all fears
of au invasion by that route would vanish
Into thin air Tho scheme is perfectly
practicable ami has excited favorable com
ments from tho sclent llle men of both
France and England Its materialization
Is among the possibilities of tho near
future. It could lo completed in six years,
at a cost of about MHXI.OOO.

Thu high bred English woman li mining
tlio finest products of civilization. Her
voice is music, exquisitely modulated, with
every syllable clear and distinct; to hear It
makes credible the story of the orator who
could pronounce the word mcsnpotamln In
a manner to move nn audience to tears,
Her carriage Is thu rcutilt of as careful
training as that of a race horse, ami her
manners In her own circle are simply per
fect. She Is alwiys well educated, speaks
French and German fluently, plays nnd
sings "all English pipe a little," to quotu
an Englishman, "and join in choruses
whether they have any voice or not."

Judging from tho press and tho public
utterances of prominont men It Is not
known that the Chinese and Japanese be
long to the snmo race, speak similar lan
guages and use tho snino characters Iu
reading nnd writing. Tho result of the
error Is that hundreds of Chinese nro com
ing to tho United States under the guise of
Jnpnnosa, nud are welcomed, when If their
nationality were known they would bu
shut out from "tho land of the freoand the
homo of tho bravo."

tho statement found in school books that

only three of their raco have been arreste.l

xiolntlng city ordinances. As n matter of
fact they are quiet, orderly and very polite.
A majority of them speak a very good
