munloll , I expccted to find bitterness
and flcrlmony between the Roman
Catholics unit the Protestnnts. Dut
this Is not the case , and for two rea.
sons. The first Is that the Protestant
mlsslonarlcs hnvo worked with tact
mul quietness and Itn.vo endeavored to
avoid arousing antngonlsms and soc.
The second is that the old church
organlmtton has its hands fu11 with
the Agllpn ' schism , which claims not
: onlr more than 2,000,000 adherents ,
but also a largo part of the church
propertJ. In the islands , 'l'hls quos.
tion Is noW being fought out In the
courts. In the meantime , the two
wings of Catholicism me manifesting
.no lIttle bitterness toward ellch othor.
'Archblshop Agius , the Apostolic dQle-
gatt' , could not find terms with which
to characterlzo AgllpllY , when I
bronched the matter to hln .
And from what I could ascertain I
QUSIJccl thnt ho Is pretty nenrly cor.
rect In TCgnrlUug Agllpay us a selfish
schemer , an oPllorlunlst , nnd a poll.

merel ) ' represents the idea of revolt
3galnst old and evJl conditions. lIe
seems to stI1nd for nothlng-or rather
for anything and cver 'thlng-In a
theological way ; in ono district ho
Ilroresses himself us steadfastly devoted -
voted to all the historic teachings and
practlceo of Rome ; In another , ho Is
prnctfcal1Y n Protestant , attucking
church rites anll dlstrlbntlng Dfblos.
So bitter Is the strlfo between the
Roman CaUlollcs and the AgllIJllyans
that nelthor pays much attention to
the Protestants , who go unmolested
on their way , adding great numbers
to the ProteBtant churches. Many recruits -
cruits , I am tuhl , como to the missionaries -
sionaries tram the J lpaynn fold ,
h:1\'lng discovered the unsatflfactory ,
condition of the lattor. Not a few ot

slnlclng a shaft seven months ago ,
when UIO ' encountered Rameses , as
ho Is now called , fully 200 feet below
the Hurfllce. Ho was cozily ensconsed
In a ) locltet of rocl ; : , the only crack In
which had been cnused by the mining
operations. It wns that fact that
caused the surprise when they found
the toad wsa Illlve , although exceed-

In the meanUme examination of the

Is that the toad crawled Into a crevice

The American woman Is m03t nlert and enthusiastic , nnd has 11 fine Intuition -

Whatn1'lty that the great establishments who provIde for every ether need
In the world of women , don't hnve department of Instruction In the wearing
of clothes , or tholr adjustment , at least. The obiJervor Is forced to the conclusion -
clusion that money Is a little worse than thrown' nwny by the womnn who
lavishes It all her appnrol and has no style or carrlago of person , to harmonize - I
monize with her finery. A day or so ago , n girl In n well.tallorod blue cloth
gown entered a street car , and , ns usunl , all eycs clanced at the newcomer. ,
She was not unusually pretty , but all femlnlno eyes did moro than glance her - _ "
way. A seCt little round crowned felt hat was adjusted upon her carefully , "
dressed hnlr , at just the right nngle. A graceful and full cluster of coque f
feathers and a chou of velvet were Its solo trImmIngA muff and scarf of . . .
hlack lynx were worn with a grace which was not marred by a lltllo con.
sclousness or its possession , by the trim , welhgroomed girl. Ono cannot
claim nnything , In such an outfit , to command the very respectful attention at . . ,
women far morc richly dressed. But. by comparison , she was without doubt - ' .
the best dressed woman , In a ver ' well dressed lIttle company. -
Thirty minutes later , n lady preceded the writer on the pavement. She
had a round figure which was to bo envied , entirely spoiled , however. llY n
"aloppy" carrlago. A magnificent fur coat , shapely and ' ell made , enveloped -
veloped her. but It sugg-ested instantly , an Indian's blanket. She cOl dn't ,
have worn it worse , A handsome plumed turban had lost its balance , np-
lIarently , and was hangingon by a hat pin presumablr , reinforced by a veil
tied In a raggOlI lenot at the back. No one looltcd at her twice. She was
not worth while , A woman who Isn't energotlc enough to wear her clothes ,
well , or doesn't know how to , isn't to be envied her l1nory. She would look
better In the most IncoI1s1)lcuous .of belongIngs.
