No Short Cut to Nationality.
There is no short cut to Philippine
nationality. Its attainment is a long
task, calling for infinite patience and
self-control. The population must
greatly increase and must effectively
occupy the entire archipelago, satis
factory relations with the Pagan and
Mohammedan peoples must be estab
lished. education must do its work,
and the social order be entirely trans
formed, before the basis of national
life is laid. Yet the aspiration for
national existence cannot justly be dis
couraged. It is the motive power under
which the greatest of popular tri
umphs have been achieved, writes Dr.
David P. Barrows, in his "History
of the Philippines." The situation
is one peculiarly delicate, and yet
full of the greatest promise. There
is every reason why both Americans
and Filipinos should hold their tasks
with constant devotion and watchful
ness over self. There could be no bet
ter motto for all who are engaged in(
this undertaking than the words
of Secretary of War Taft, on whom,
more than on any other man. rests the
immediate future of the Philippines:

Emil Zerkowitz, comercial councilor
of Hungary, stationed in New York
city, makes an interesting statement
of conditions and possibilities in his
country. He shows that there has
been much progress in material f!e
Telopment, and in this connection re
marks: “Hungary offers great re
sources for enterprises of every kind
-—a rich market for American export
ers, a fertile soil for financial and in
dustrial investments and advantageous
business relations for importers.'1 In
this connection there is furnished also
much information going to show the
extent of Hungary’s foreign trade.
This trade is large and increasing, and
the Commrecial Councilor adds: “Ef
forts of the Hungarian government
and of the different business and so
cial circles in Hungary to bring Hun
gary in closer connection with the
United States have not been without
effect, and we hope that these efforts
will steadily increase the friendly
feeling and the commercial relations
between both nations." The doors are
opening in various directions, and the
American producer and consumer may
find Hungary a profitable field.
If anyone is laboring under the delu
sion that our South American friends
are not progressive he should at once
get rid of the notion. The Chilean gov
ernment has entered into a contract
for improvements in the harhor of Val
paraiso that will cost *20,000,000, and
the Argentine congress has been
asked to approve plans for additional
docking facilities at Buenos Ayres ia
voving the expenditure of *9,000,000.

(Copyright, by Joseph 15. Bowles.)
During and immediately succeeding
the Russo-Japanese war the press of
Europe and America went into ecsta
sies over the prowess of the Japanese
soldier and the level-headedness and
strategic ability of the officers who en
gineered the task of grappling with
the Russian army and navy. Enthus
iastic panegyrics were written re
garding the sacrifices which the pa
triotic islanders had made to avert a
menace to their national existence.
Lavish praise was bestowed on the
wonderful manner in which Japan, in
a brief term of years, had modernized
and prepared itself to whip the occi
dental with his own weapons.
During the last few months the
tenor of comments has considerably
changed, and in many instances edi
torial writers are deploring the fact
that any "fuss" ever was made about
the achievements of Japan. The peo
ple hfctve commenced to remark that,
after all is said and considered, the
Japanese are ordinary humans and not
supernatural beings, and the Pacific
coast influx of Japanese immigrants
has created an extensive and inten
sive alarm, and caused thinkers and
statesmen to pause and consider that
the Japanese aggressiveness, fanned
into volcanic activity by the successes
in the Russo-Japan war. constitutes a
menace to the world—at least to the
Pacific coast of Xor’h America.
And it is not the Occident alone
which is cogitating over the world
menace of Japan. The orient also
is displaying unmistakable signs of
being fearful of the menacing position
and tactics which the island nation
has assumed of late.
Like the Occident, the entire ori
ent showed unbounded admiration of
Japan's struggle with Russia. To the
orient the issues involved in the
Russo-Japan war meant more than
they did to the western world. The
Asians were enthusiastic and appre
ciative of Japan's proving to the Oc
cident that an Asiatic nation was cap
able of using western methods of
warfare to defeat a western people:
and if possible the praise of the
orient was more lavish than that of
the Occident. But, as in America and
Europe, the Asian attitude toward
the mikado's subjects has undergone
a great change. Asia has become
fearful of the methods Japan is em
ploying to secure commercial mar
kets and proclaiming its political
suzerainty in Asiatic countries.
The first shock was occasioned by
the excesses committed by Japan in
Korea. To the entire continent it
was patent that Japan was not assum
ing the suzerainty of Korea for altru
istic purposes; the peninsula was to
be rid of the Russian and to be util
ized by the expanding Nipponese. It
was expected by eastern peoples that
the Japanese would make the civiliza
tion and development of Korea and its
resources a mere secondary object;
very few Asiatics had expected that
they would subject the Koreans to the
militarism since forced upon them.
Japan can offer but feeble excuses for
her policy of self-glorification and ex
pansion and for inaugurating a reign
of terrorism in Korea.
Her present attitude toward China
and her administration of Manchuria
unmistakably indicate that the Jap
anese are determined to carry their
operations farther in the continent.
If the Chinese reports are to be re
lied upon, it is certain that the Jap
anese are making the best of their
tenure of Manchuria. By practically
monopolizing its trade; by offering
special facilities to her own merchant
princes and captains of industry, by
transplanting the petty shopkeepers
and affording profitable employment in
railroad and government offices to the
Japanese proletariat, etc., they are
paving the way for complete domina
Japan's program of expansion, it
may be remarked, is much like that
of England. The island nation of the
orient appears to be bent the same
way as the island nation of the occi
lent. England went to India for trade
purposes. The East-India Company,
a purely commercial organization of
monopolists, finding that the govern
ment of the day in India was impotent
and that general lawlessness and an
archy prevailed, formed visions of ob
I taining the political supremacy or
Hindostan; since the throttling of the
Indian industries and the control of
the East-Indian markets could then,
by control of the tariff, be more effec
tively and easily brought about.
When the English went to India it
was the East-Indian "gold" that at
tracted them. At that time the coun
try was industrially prosperous. East
Indian muslins and brass and wood
art work were the furore of France
and England in that day; but with
in a ffew decades the law was so
made and administered by the British
that English manufactures dis
placed the East-Indian, just as the
Englishman displaced ths natives of
the land in the government offices.
Within a few generations the East
Indians fell from their pre-eminent in
dustrial position and to-day, by means
of a boycott of English goods and
various other devices employed
to overcome the barriers placed in
their way by the alien tariff makers
and administrators, they are just re
generating themselves from the low
est and most discouraging sloughs of
Japan's career in Korea and Man
churia significantly shows that the
subjects of the mikado are following
in the footsteps of their occidental
ally. For commercial purposes rail
roads, telegraphs, post oilices, electric
lights, etc., have been established in
India, and a few million of East-In
dians have been enabled to come in
close contact with western culture,
but India has paid a woeful price for
these features of modernization and
the benefits which have accrued to
India from them are merely incidental.
Japan's political administration of
Korea and Manchuria may add these
and probably other features of civiliza
tion; it may lead to imparting educa
tion to Koreans and Manchurians; but
this will be incidental and for these
advantages Korea and Manchuria will
pay a most exorbitant price.
When the Anglo-Japanese treaty
was signed a few years ago. the peo
ple of India, who had expected that
the Japanese would display Asia-for
the-Asiatics sentiments, denounced
the alliance and expressed keen disap
pointment that an Asian nation should
join a European power to keep India,
an oriental country, under subjection.
Hindostan was bitterly chagrined.
This disappointment is becoming
acuter and changing into a feeling of
resentment since the development of
Japanese plans for exploiting Korea
and Manchuria. The people of India
are fast awakening to the conscious
ness that the foreign policy of Japan
is not to merge in an Asia-for-the
Asiatics combine, but to reserve Asia
for the Japanese.
These apprehensions of the East-In
(lians are amply justified by the senti
ments of the Japanese, crystallized in
a recent frank statement by Count
Ofeuma. the Japanese statesman, made
before the Kobe chamber of com
merce. He said:
"You can go everywhere with ease
and pleasure under the protection of
the Japanese fleet. Being oppressed
by the Europeans, the 300.000.000 peo
ple of India are looking for Japanese
protection. They have commenced to
boycott European merchandise. If,
therefore, the Japanese let the chance
slip by and do not go into India, the
Indians will be disappointed. If one
will not take gifts from heaven,
heaven may send one misfortune.
From old times. India has been a land
of treasure. Alexander the Great ob
tained there treasure sufficient to
load 100 camels and Mohammedan At
tila also obtained riches from India.
Why should not the Japanese stretch
out their hands towards that country,
now that the people are looking to
the Japanese? The Japanese ought to
go to India, the South ocean, and other
parts of the world.’’
Count Okitma has since corrected
this report of his speech and declares
that he did not mean that Japan
should politically subjugate India, but
only meant that the island nation
should commercially exploit it. Raman
da Chatterji, the editor of the Mod
ern Review, one of the highest class
East-Indian publications under purely
native management, trenchantly com
ments on this point:
"It is not often that we shall hear so
honest an avowal as is contained in
this extract, of the real aims and inten
tions of Japan. . . . The Japanese
ambassador in London was referred
to before publication for his comment
on Count Okutna's speech, and he an
swered that it referred only to trade
interests. It will be strange indeed j
if Englishmen can accept this expla
nation. A speech which referred to
trade interests only, founds all its
sanction—not on South sea or char
tered enterprises, not on the history
of factories or merchant colonizations,
but—on Alexander the Great, on Mo
hammed and on Attila. . . . The Eng
lish are alone in Europe in being
blind to the aims of Japanese foreign
policy. . . . Certain it is that should
English policy drive the people of
any Asiatic country into a despairful
acceptance of the Japanese, the peo
ple of that land would ever after have
cause to curse the day. If we want
to know what are likely to be the
methods of Japanese rule, it is well
that we should keep our eyes upon
All the other enlightened Asiatic
countries share this East-Indian atti
tude towards Japan. China appears
to be wide-awake in this respect.
From the niauner in which the Celes
tials are protesting against allowing
the Japanese to smuggle arms and
provisions of war into Manchuria at
the present time it is evident that the
Dragon Empire is alive to the menac
ing attitude Japan has assumed
tocvard Asia. The possibility of a
war between Japan and China perhaps
depends upon how full the coffers of
the Japanese exchequer are; or how
much money England and other pro
Japanese occidental nations can loan
the mikado's government; but certain
it is that the entire Orient is vibrant
with a dread of the new Japanese
slogan: "Asia for the Japanese.”

Our Older Civilization.
You always have to travel to the

than your own. New Yorkers go to
Europe, Europeans go to China and

says the New York Press. Yet in a
recent issue of a Chicago paper the
editor of questions answered column
suggests to one of his readers that she
go to the Catskills or White mountains
for a walking tour rather than to Colo
rado, the one given reason for the
eastern trip being that the Inquirer
"will meet an older civilization."

BOLERO AND BLOUSE
-Blouse to Match
BOLERO.—This is a most useful little coat, In the same material as the
skirt; blue and white striped tweed is used here, the revers and cuffs are
of white cloth stitched at the edge. There is a wrapped seam down each
side of front and back, with a small opening at the end of each, ornamented
with buttons; buttons also ornament the cuff.
BLOI SE OF SILK AND LACE.—This little blouse is quite a novel idea,
and would be very smart when made; the bodice part is of the same mate
rial as skirt, glace silk would be most suitable; it fastens down the front, and
is trimmed along the outer edge with a piece of velvet, the little lie-over
collar is also trimmed with velvet, the under arm parts and the sleeves are
cut all in one, in piece lace, the sleeve is finished at the elbow with a band
and cuff of the silk, the cuff is trimmed with velvet.
BLOUSE TO MATCH SKIRT—This blouse would make up well in the same
material as the skirt, providing the material is something soft; fhe yoke is
of piece lace, piped with silk to match the material, which is tucked to fit the
yoke, the tucks are about one-quarter inch in width, and are carried down
three inches, the sleeve is a simple puff, gathered at the elbow and put into
a shaped band which is piped with silk,, a little bow of silk is worn at the
neck; the waist-band also is of silk.
STRIPES AND POLKA DOTS.
Methods of Trimming That Will Make
Any Simple Frock Ornamental.
One of the pretty ways of making
a simple frock ornamental is trim
ming it with an opposite design in the
To be explicit, polka dots are in
fashion and frocks in this design are
trimmed with wide bias bands of plaid
or striped material in the same color.
A striped frock is trimmed with a
wide straight band of polka dot mate
A plain surface is trimmed with
both the polka dot and the striped
fabric, and when the combination is
well done it does not really look like
a patchwork quilt.
It can even be carried out in yokes
and stocks, as nets in fashionable col
ors now come with a tiny polka dot of
white. It is usually in a small open
circle instead of a real polka dot. but
it gives the same effect.
These nets are put in tiny tucks and
used instead of lace, embroidery or
Placing a Couch.
Couches are now so much used in
sitting rooms that any arrangement
that has even a spice of novelty
should be welcomed. So try putting
the couch in the corner of the room
so that it touches the wall at one end
and behind it. At the other end, with
its back against the divan, stand a
bookcase, which is a complete screen
to the couch. The latter piece fronts
out toward the room, so that any one
entering sees the bookcase at once,
and on going farther into the room
the couch comes into view.
Plain white lawn was used to make
this indoor (town. The surplice waist
has a broad trimming band made of
triangular sections of tucking put to
gether with a narrow beading and
edged with lace. At each side are
folds of lavender satin and a bow of
ribbon with long ends conceals the
closing in the waist.
Prevent Eye Discoloration.
Often when playing a child will run
against some object which will hit the
eye, and as a bruise on the eye is not
only more disfiguring, but more pain
ful than one anywhere else on the
body, it is well to know what to do for
it. Immediately after the eye has been
struck with enough force to make it
black, apply a cloth wrung out of wa
ter, as hot as can be borne. Apply new
cloths as hot as can be stood for 20
minutes, and the blood which has col
lected and clotted will become thin
and pass off to its proper channels. A
bruise on any other part of the body
may be treated likewise.
A Pleasant Economy,
This is the time of year when the
mother with a small daughter may
lay in a supply of hair ribbons, for
they can be bought at this season of
the year very cheap, and a ribbon is
always of use where a little girl is
concerned, either for hair ribbon or
sashes. To put away a ribbon when
one find3 it for sale cheap is a very
wise thing to do, and will save a lot
of expense when school begins in the
LITTLE ERRORS THAT WORRY.
How Some of Them May Be Avoided
by the Home Dressmaker.
It is usually the little errors in
dressmaking that are the most irri
tating and annoying to the woman
who does her own dressmaking. The
unlined waist is one of the hardest
garments to fit correctly. When
wrinkles come at the base of the arm
hole, the trouble usually is that the
armhole has been made too small.
If it is. do not cut it out, but simply
snip it with the point of the scissors
to see if the wrinkles are removed.
If the wrinkles are not removed, then
trim the armhole.
If the waist wrinkles at the base of
the collar line in the back, see if your
i belt is in the proper place exactly at
the waist line and that the line from
the center back of the' belt is plumb.
If you are sure that the belt is cor
rectly placed, then snip the collar
with the point of the scissors at each
side of the center back of the collar
and wrinkles in all probability will
Ribbons Must Match.
Debutantes-to-be are most particular
about their ribbon accessories, and
gorgeous, indeed, are some of the
sashes, coiffures and blouse bows no

ties to which members of the younger
generation are sometimes admitted.
With her Dutch-necked dinner frock
of girlish white Swiss or point d'esprit
the jeune fille wears a flowered sash
tied trimly about her slender waist
and arranged at the back in butterfly
loops, two of which may be drawn half
way to the shoulders. The hair bow
and sleeve rosettes may be of softest
chiffon satin, matching the grounding
of the sash, but her opera glass bag is
preferably of the figured sash ribbon,
lined to match its satin bordering.
Since the fad for decoration has be
come so widespread, the girl with a
talent for fashioning flowers and bow
knots with her needle is decorating
the fronts of her hosiery from toe to
ankle with quaint designs. These are
of natural flower tints on the delicate
hosiery worn with evening gowns and

Threading Frock With Ribbon.
The fashion of threading the frock
with ribbons at flounce depth around
the skirt is a pretty one.
The slits are cut about three inches or
more apart, then buttonholed. The rib

one would when using beading, and the
fullness of the skirt is drawn up to
suit the wearer, when long ends are
tied into bows and loops either at
intervals or just at the left side.
