"Do you know 1 think Chines char

the meeting of the Women's Club last
week.
"I can't read them, so they neyer tie

J "Well, I can't elther-not any more,

snaa cameto our bouse. I would have
thought be was a tramp, only be was
K polite, and said be was worn out

be said was, 'Madame, 1 am looking
for work.'
"! thought of the advice given !n thf
circulars which come with the Cbaritf
Bureau's annual request for subscrlp
tlons, and I asked, very severely, 'Havf
you any recommendations?
"'Yes, msdame,' replied the man. i
have one I value very highly. It It
from tbe Chinese Consul.'
"With that be fished In bis pocket
and pulled out a yellow paper, all cov
ered with Chinese characters. It near
ly took my breath away, but I wasn't
going to appear surprised, and mur
muring, 'Walt a moment, please,' I
took It back to the dining room and
compared It with the bottom of a plate.
Several of the characters were th
Miner ct least-1 thought so and tin
crockery man hud told me those oa
tbe plate meant 'excellent quality,' so
naturally I supposed tbe letter of rec
commendation told that my caller had
an 'excellent quality.' He didn't look
It, but I couldn't doubt the word of
the Chinese Consul.
"I had him sweep the cellar and gavt
blrn plenty to eat, and then, as lie
was a friend of the government official,
I paid him a little more than It wai
worth, alwut $2. lie forgot to takj
his recommendation, and 1 ran nearly
balf a block after him to return It, but
be was gone. I was congratulating
myself on the fine souvenir I had when
my husband came home.

the Chinese Consul, and he baw-hawei!
Just like a horrid man. When I'Tisked
him what was tbe matter, he Jusl
laughed again. After the theater that
evening be took me down on Clark,
atreet past the Chinese restaurants,
and there on the sidewalks were any
number of 'recommendations,' wher
they had been washed from the Chi
nese bulletin boards by the rain. My
husband said they were nothing but
Chinese advertisements. But the on
the man had was nothing but a Chi

"A few nights later that same man
tried to beg a dime from us as we wer
coming from the opera. There hadn't
been any rain for a few days, so 1

1.000,000 pine seedlings were set ou
the other 20 acres were sowed with

of tbe nursery gradually so as
