of Yoshihito is complete and self-suf

third sovereign of his line, he traces
his royal descent back to the mists
of the world, back six hundred years
and more, before the time of Christ,
back, in fact, to the great heroic age
of Japan, when two gods were called
upon to create a land from the liquid
islands of the air—and they created
From these gods he claims de

educated and scientifically minded
Japanese will dispute it. That is the
chord of belief which no modern so
phistication can pierce. The dead
Mutsuhito has taken his -harborage
with his fellow gods, and Y’oshibito,
reigning, is of his blood.
This, in part, explains the attitude
of veneration in which the Japanese
regard their ruler, explains the senti
ment which marks him forth from
brother sovereigns. It is a sentiment
which few Japanese will discuss.
“It is a sentiment.” said one to t'.e
writer, “which it is impossible for a
Japanese to analyze, and which if an
alyzed no foreign mind could compre

it is of the family of the emperor. To
a nation which reverences its ances
tors. the emperor represents a link
between the present Japan and every
thing that has gone before—a link
perhaps, between the material and
the spirit world. He is at once an
element of mysticism and the embodi
ment of material national strength.
It is as if,”—the Japanese gentleman
paused—“you could merge the senti
ment of a Roman Catholic for the
pope and the affection of a people for
a great king."
“Will the present emperor preserve
for himself the full sentiment which
the people had for his father?” was
The Japanese shrugged.
“In a measure, perhaps. Wholly,
perhaps not,” he answered.
“That he will command a peculiar
reverence is certain from the reasons
I have given, which are inherent In
the nation. That the affection of the
people will be as great as that given
to the late emperor is doubtful. You
see. the last sovereign inspired and con
trolled Japan from its growth from a
feudal land to a world wide nation.
From the time the great princes or
daiinios surrendered their powers and
estates to the granting of a modern and
voluntary constitution in 1889. his was
the initiative of each successive ad
vance. He had done more even than
the nation expected—certainly more
than ever had been accomplished for a
nation before. That record was per
sonal to him and is responsible for the
personal love with which he is regard
ed. We honor and reverence the new
sovereign—yes. He is emperor, he is
the embodied spirit of Japan. But.
love? Even an emperor must earn
love for himself."
So enters Yoshihito. the new- em
peror of Japan, upon his kingdom—
the recipient, in western eyes, of
strange marks of Japanese respect.
For if the race follows the precedents
given to Mutsuhito. Yoshihito's
name will not be pronounced by any
of his subjects. "The sovereign,”
“the emperor." he will be; never
Yoshihito. To call the name of Yc
shihito will be sacrilege. It would be
as if a shrine had been assailed.
And that is only a small indication of
the respect which the Japanese will
give him as a sovereign. No man or
woman will sit before him. None, if
convention be maintained, will speak
directly to him. for it is the custom
to address the emperor of Japan only
through members of his household
In his presence even the greatest will
look upon the ground, unless the em
peror be placed at some elevation,
when it is permissible that the eyes
be raised, and even this is a conces

For Mutsuhito, the dead emperor.
! passed the first sixteen years of life,
unseen by any foreigner, unseen by
any but his personal attendants, who
were of his family. In conference
even with the greatest of those who
served him. his face was never shown,
for he sat hidden within a canopy, on
the low throne-platform from which
his orders came. Till sixteen years
of age he had never walked—tind the
art of walking was with him a stiff
and harsh practice to the end. New.
too, is the wild acclaim of innumera
ble "banzais” whenever the emper
or's presence is observed by the peo
ple—for it came into Japan within the
last fifteen years and in the skirts of
progress. Before that time a dead
I silence had spoken national respect—
| a dead silence and eyes low ered and
the shuttered windows of houses
along the street.
Yoshihito will undoubtedly be
viewed by his subjects as closer to
the human species than any of the
emperors that preceded him. For
even his father began his reign as the
| practical prisoner of his ow n deifl
cation. Prior to 1S6S he—as were his
predecessors for hundreds of years—
j was the splendidly isolated but prac
tical prisoner of the shogun, in whose
hands the real administrative power
lay. The generalissimo of the forces,
the shogun, also controlled the ad
ministrative functions of government,
while the emperor himself was mere
ly a splendid figure—too sacred by
far to indulge in the ignoble occupa
tion of "doing things.”
And the personality of this new rul
er. who commands medieval respect
from a nation so ultra-modern as the
A slight, small-chested figure, of in
expansive shoulder and somewhat
frail build—a figure with a head ab
normally large, coal black eyes, the
coarse black hair, the somewhat
sombre expression, and the undershot
j sensitive to nervous diseases. He is
spoken of as serious and bright and
with some pretense to social instinct*
unpossessed by his parent.
Third among the sons, and one
among the twelve children of the late
emperor, Yoshihito had no greater
reason to expect a succession to sov
I ereignty than had any of his broth
ers, had they lived, for it is the custom
of the emperor to nominate his suc
cessor from tlie most likely material
—only being limited by the fact that
he must be of royal blood. The death
of his two elder brothers, however,
opened up vast royal perspectives to
Yoshihito. and in 1887 he was nom
inated heir apparent. being pro
claimed crown prince in 1SS9.
Yoshihito's life in its earliest years
reflected the changed condition of
Japan. He was brought up democrat
ically. and attended school in the Col
lege of Peers, which is intended for
the education of princes and nobles,
but which is open to all. Here he
worked with the rest, possessing uo
privileges unpossessed by the most
obscure, and with a punctuality in
sisted upon from even him. the de
scendant of the gods, la this way
came the comparative development of
his social instincts, for. unlike Mut
suhito. he prefers to talk directly
with his company than through the
august intermediary of court officials.
Later, however, he came under the
care of a tutor. General Oku. who was
assisted by a Mr. Adachi, who seems
to have been linguistically inclined,
for the present emperor speaks Eng
lish and French, as well as German.
From General Oku he studied mili
tary tactics and early proved that in
Japan royalty is something of a talis
man. At thirteen he was a lieuten
ant, at sixteen colonel of the Japanese
In these early years, from our
western viewpoint, he lived a life of
jaw of the great emperor, his father.
In his august position today he seems
somewhat of an anomaly to the west
ern eyes, for he is not the son of the
empress of Japan, but of one of
Mutsohito’s lesser wives, the Countess
Yanagaware, and chosen by the last
emperor as that sovereign’s successor
under the law of Japan. He is thir
ty-one years old, and with the excep
tion of a slight illness, hardier than
he has ever been.
For Yoshihito has been a frail fig
ure since infancy—a sufferer from a
constitutional complaint which car
ried off his elder brother, and which
the unusual size of his head sufficiently
suggests. He is a sufferer from wa
ter on the brain, which, however, im
pairs his mental faculties not the
least, but only renders him unusually
remarkable Independence of parental
control. He occupied, almost from in
fancy, a palace of his own, not, how
ever, distant from the emperor's.
With all this atmosphere of the
feudal, however, Yoshihito is thor
oughly in accord with the modern
spirit of his country. In many re
spects he is tinged with European
habits to a degree not even ap
proached by his father.
in 1906. when his three-storied pal
ace was built at a cost of >300.900. it

moments, too, he uses European dress.

sumably, will desert his own palace

MEANING OF “AT HALF MAST”
At First Universal Symbol Was Token
of Submission and Respect
Perhaps you have notice that when
ever a prominent person dies, espe
cially if he is connected with the gov
ernment. the flags on public build
ings are hoisted only part of the way
up. remarks the Toronto Mail and Ex
press. This is called "half mast.”
Did you ever stop to think what con
nection there could be between a flag
that was not properly hoisted and the
death of a great man?
Ever since flags were used in war it
has been the custom to have the flag
of the superior or conquering nation
above that of the inferior Itself hope
lessly beaten cmf rlmfwymfw pppppp
above that of the inferior or vanquish
ed. When an army found itself hope
i lessly beaten it hauled its flag down
far enough for the flag of the victors
to be placed above it on the same
pole. This was a token not only of
submission, but of respect.
In those days when a famous sol
dier died flags were lowered out of
respect to his memory. The custom
long ago passed from purely mili
tary usage to public life of all kinds,
the flag flying at half mast being a
sign that the dead man was worthy
of universal respect. The space left
above it is for the flag of the great
conqueror of all—the angel of death.
Robert Browning's Will.
Diligent search is being made at
Florence. Italy, for the win of Robert
Browning, son of the famous poet,
but so far it has not been found. The
fact that there apparently is no will
is causing considerable gossip, as
the property, of which there is a good
deal, both in Asolo and Florence,
will pass to his wife, who was Miss
Coddlngton of New York, and from
whom he lived apart for year, owing
to incompatibility of temper.
Browning's property in Florence in
cluded Casa Guidi, where he spent his
childhoood days. When his mother
died the property passed out of the
family, and was acquired by him a
few years ago.
