mint ol' practical Chinese,

Giizoleo during the occupation of Po
kin I'.v the allied forces. Sir Walter a
marvellously iluent speaker of Chinese
-was mmiic years Chinese Secretary to
tlie British Legation at Pekln. and' af
terward ronxiiKiunernl In Korea.
One incident In Sir Walter's Chinese
career has very seldom been touched
"poll. It was he who took the Chinese
forts of Shan-IInl-Kwan when garri
soned hy :,(i()(i men, and without tiring
a shot. Sir Walter and a gunboat were
despatched from Taku to reconnoitre
the cimt to the north or Pehtung.
(Joins on shore with an olllccr niid
eighteen men. Sir Waltur sent up his
card to the Chinese General with a re
quest for an interview. This was
granted. "The Allied Forces will lie
here, all around the fortsto-morrow,"
said Sir Walter to the Chinese (ieneral.
"Are you no! of the opinion that much
bloodshed would he saved by a surren
der, as, of course, you know the forts
are bound to be taken? Nothing can
save you! It Is really the only course
to save bloodshed."
The Chinese General debated n
while, and on the question of the ad
visability of surrender bolus again
put to him, answered "Yes, certainly,
but when and to whom?" "To inc.
and there Is no time like the present,"
replied Sir Walter promptly, "other
wise I shall bo compelled to open lire
on the forts." The usual preliminaries
were then gone through. Sir Walter
placed the British lias over the forts,
sent the gunboat back to Taku to re
port, and utilizing a disused signal box
at the railway station ns a blockhouse
dotted his sentries about and himself
turned in for the night.
Toward morning the Russian troops
arrived and the Russian olllccr, not re
nllzlng the situation, was about to take
advantnge of Ids early arrival. "I
shall occupy the station," he said, "and
proceed to attack the forts." "The forts
are taken, and the station Isin my oc
cupancy." replied the Englishman.
"You will see that the British flng is
flying over both. You can put your
men somewhere over there." Indicat

wanted the railway mul that only!
Thus were the forts of Shan-Hnl-Kwan
taken by the scholarly gentle

MAX AND BEAU ON A LOG.
Conductor Davo Houston, of the
Southern Pacific Railroad, who is tak
ing a ten days vacation at Seaside,
had a thrilling experience with a big
bear which lie will not soon forget. He
only told a few of the Incidents, as be
desired to keep It quiet, but the story
leaked out. Conductor Houston is a
great fisherman, and never lets an op
portunity slip to cast the lino. Ho had
hardly got settled nt.tho seaside when
bo went out on tho Necanlcuin River
to have a fish all by himself. He made
bis way through the brush until, be
camo to a log, one end bf which pro
jected out into the creek. '"Unit's the
very place." thought the conductor,
and, adjusting his lino and pole, be
crept out on the log, where he found
himself comfortably perclfed above the
cool water of Nccanicum Creek. Hous.
ton lighted his tried and trusty pipe
and then cast bis line. lie fished nnd
Hmokcd perhaps an hour. without get
ting a bite. ' ' , ' .
Suddenly there was a movement In
the bubhes back of him, and then ho
felt the log he was sitting on tremble.
Instinctively the conductor turned
around, when to his amazement he
gazed Into tho face of a black bear.
The latter seemed to be sizing him up
nnd estimating bow much of a meal
the conductor would make, and
whether ho -would "scrap" when It
camo to the point. For the conductor
there scorned no escnpe. Tho boar sat
complacently on tho shore end of tho
log, and It was not possible for Con
ductor Houston to get past the mon
ster. The bear held him there for sev
oral hours before a hunter came alone
nnd killed tho animal. The boar
welched liuO pounds when dressed.
Conductor Houston now has a few
more gray hairs In bis head as tho re
sult of his experience. Morning Ore-
A BRAVE MONARCH.
If the Emperor (Francis Joseph or

MONOGRAMS ON GLASS.
There is a sort of revival of the fush
ion of having the family cipher or
monogram on china ami glass. Elab
orate gold traceries are preferred for
china, but the monograms are often
done lu colors, such as green or blue.
These decorations tiro done to order,
and are very durable.

TO WASH BLANKETS.
Now, If one lives In the country,
where a garden or Hold or good drying
ground is close by un excellently ap
pointed laundry, a big annual orgle of
blanket washing may be advantageous,
though "1 lino mo doots" about that.
To the ordinary housewife, who has
neither the space nor the appliances
nor the necessary number of servants.
It Is a far wiser plan to send one
blanket to the wash every week, or
two If the washing is a light one, and
It Is always necessary only to wash
one nt u time, otherwise blankets
They cannot be treated en mnsse as

but not In the hot sun.
CAULIFLOWER A IITALIENNE.
For the nbove dish n nice compnet
cauliflower Is required, which has
been boiled until It is Just tender, and
very carefully drained on a cloth. Place
It In u round llreproof china dish and
pour over It with a spoon, so that every
part of It may be coated, u breakfast
cupful of warm butter, which has been
mixed with u large tablespoonful of
tomato conserve and seasoned with
salt, pepper, nndn very little powdered
mace. Then mask the cauliflower with
very fine dry bread crumbs seasoned
with salt nnd pepper, and bake in n
quick oven until the crutus arc u gold
en brown. It should be carefully bast
ed once or twice while In tho oven
with warm butter, and should be
served in the dish lu which It Is cooked.
Caramel shortcake Is u pleasing
variation from the ordinary varieties
und is especially good nt this season,
when fresh fruit suitable for filling
Is not In mnrkct. Make a caramel by
dissolving first a tea cup fill of brown
sugar with a spoonful of water, then
add a tcnspoonful of butter and a few
drops of brown coloring. Stir till It
bolls and is quite clear; then allow to
cool. Mnke a simple layer of cake,
using rather more butter tlinu usual,
and spread between the layers a cho
colate cream or some fruit preserves,
then pour the thickening caramel ev
enly nil over the top, doing this more
than once, giving It time to set In be
tween. When cold, orunment with
candled fruits. If chocolate Is chosen
for the lllltng add a little grated cho
colate to the caramel before it bolls.

BUILT BY WOMEN.
The reciyitly dedicated Christian
Church, at Muucle, Intl., was built
chiefly by the hands of women. They
carried the hods, brought the water,
mixed the mortar and helped to lay
the foundation of the little chapel.
There was little money with which to
construct the building so greatly need
ed, the parishioners being poor, the
men of the congregation being com
pelled to labor for n living, so the wo
men volunteered. All summer long lu
the hot sun and Into the fall they
tolled nnd now their hopes nrp realized.
The lenders of the work were Mrs.
Mnbalhi Rhoiides, Mrs. M. J. Slimier
nnd Mrs. Elizabeth Tlnsley.
CLEANSING HAIR BRUSHES.
Good hair brushes are costly Items,
and a way to keep the bristles stiff und
clean for years Is worth knowing. A
Russian coiffeur gives this recipe:
Have ready two bnslns; put a lump
of soda the size of a walnut In one nnd
three pnrts III! It with boiling water;
the other basin should be three pnrts
tilled with water as cold as you can
get It, to which you have udded suf
ficient lemon Juice or good white vin
egar to give it a noticeably add tnste.
Shake the bristles of the brush well
up and down in the boiling water till
they are clean, then nt once rinse
them thoroughly lu the cold wnter nnd
stand them up to dry in the nlr or in
a warm place, but not too near the fire.
Of course, the backs of the brushes
must not be wetted.
Curio shops are Inrgely In the hands
of women, but though women writers
of books are legion, women sellers of
books are consclcnous by their nb
sence. Has the trade of the booksell
er no charm for women?
It has been suggested, nnd with ap
parent reason, that a charming wo
man, with delicacy of feeling mid tact,
might establish a book shop lu nny
fashionable thoroughfare nnd attract
to It all the most famous and fashion
able people of the day, making It, In
fact, something of n salon.
Of course, special personnl qualifica
tions would be necessary, nnd probab
ly they are nut often found in the wo
man possessing the requisite capital.
Still, that Is no matter, for tho open
ing is for ono, not for the mnny, nnd
thnt one would probably be thnt rnra
avis, the business woman who finds
lor work entirely to her mind nnd a
real pleasure. Establishments some
thing on this order arc flourishing In
England, having grown from modest
little shops for the sale mid exchange
of books to widely known places whero

Is certain that cold water may pro

avoid by using warm water. For ono
thing, microbes mid parasites tluivo

Furthermore, few things irritate tho
tender skin of women more than the
acute difference between the tempera
ture of very cold water and very warm
dressing rooms. With full-blooded
persons cold water turns the faco red,
and the cold calling for the counter
effect of friction tempts tender
