We have tried to analyze wherein
the beauty of Japanese maples lies.
To begin, the trees are small
aixl of exceptionally compact
growth. The leaves are small, ex
traordinarily numerous, and delicate
ly cut and divided. The colors them
hoIvcs are really rich, ranging Irom
lark coppery-maroon to scarlet and
oiaage. The fact that usually the
trees are either sprinkled among pines
itixl oilier dark green conifers, or that
i hey are massed together in intention
al plantings on slopes is responsible
for a very considerable part of their
The fall time Is the season for wed
dings, for store "openings" and for
gifts. The department store is large
ly developed in Japan. There are all
grades, from places where the com
monest and cheapest goods are sold to
elegant places like the Mitsukoshi, or
Matsuya's. They are intended for
Japanese buyers, and in the finest one
hees beautiful displays of all the most
Httractlve things of Japansee produc
tion cloths, clothes, potteries, kake
mono, household equipment and the
like. As in other places, hov. ever,
they have their unsold remnants and
fiet bargain days when their great
remnant departments arc thronged
with commoner people than th usual
patrons, anxious to secure fine tilings
at low prices. Tea is served in all de
partment stores of such pretension
and in their lunch rooms, just as in
the gioat department stores at home,
one may find dainty lunches. In fact.
If the novice wishes to make ac
quaintance with the Japanese cuisine
there is no better way of gaining a
first lesson than by going to the lunch
looms of the great department stores.
Quite different from these pre
tentious and elegant establishments
are the "bazaars," which are to be
found in every section of the city.
The name "bazaar" is usually con-

ppicuously displayed upon their front,
which generally extends along con
siderable space, with a door at each
of the two sides. These are marked
"Inway" and "Outway," and the visitor
Is expected to observe these signs.
Entering, then, through the "Inway"
we find ourselves in a very narrow
passage'' scarcely six feet wide, along
both sides of which nil sorts of cheap
things are attractively displayed.
Everything Is cheap, and everything
Is at a fixed price. Not only Japanese
goods, but those "made in Germany."
in England, in France, and in the
United States are here for sale. Space
Is rented apparently to little sellers,
and one finds sections devoted to cer
tain goods. You can here buy safety
razors and fountain pens, picture
frames, postcards, every kind of tool
for household use, ready-made cloth
ing, hats, caps and shoes: toys are in
special evidence, section after sec
tion being devoted to them. Having
reached the end of the narrow pas
sage, we find an abrupt turn to the
right, leading back along another
passage behind the one which we
fcavo already traversed. At its end
another turn and another passage, and
so on. back and forth, turning and
winding, until one feels as if within a
perfect maze or labyrinth. Usually
about the time when he begins to
think that there is no end to the sinu

velf at the fooj of a staircase, and has
t.o escape but to mount the stairs.
Here he finds himself again in pass
ages. After going through just twice
as much as be has done before, he
finds himself at the top of a stairway
which takes him down with half of
the ground floor still to be traversed.
Everywhere the clerks and little sell
ers urge tue passerby to take their
wares. Very different is this indeed
from Mitsukoshi and Matsuya. but

of choice and beautiful examples of
things bought by or for young couples
for household use and of the cere
monial furnishings of the home. The
bridal dress differs with the rank or
position of the wearer. The dress of
the lower, the middle or the high class
(princely woman) is recognized at
once by the instructed. In three ad
jacent alcoves were figures wearing
bridal gowns. All were beautiful.
The wedding garments of a low-class
woman in Japan is a work of art;
delicate materials in fine colors and
striking patterns are emplos'ed; the
cut and form are suitable to her
class. Not only, however, is the bride
obliged to have a single dress. She
must have two others expressly made
with reference to her wedding. The
true bridal gown is worn only at the
ceremony: almost immediately it is
put off. and a second, quite different
from it. is assumed: the bride arrived
at home, the marriage day past, a
third dress, different from both the
others, is suitable. Naturally the
clothing ot the middle-class bride is
richt-r and finer, perhaos as biightly
color d, as that of the lower-class
woman. Characteristic is the curious
great oil. like a sack or bag in form,
which is drawn down over the face; it
is a filmy stuff, so that the face and
hair dressing of the bride may still
be son cjuitely clearly through it.
The diess of the highest, class woman,
the princely class, is elegant and rich:
on the whole, it is less strikingly
bright, colored than that of the mid
dle class woman: there is, however,
an unmistakable refinement about it
which is lacking in the other class.
There were here displayed upon the
walls samples of rich materials which
were formerly used for such wedding
garments. Among them was a stuff
of golden buff ground with delicate
patterning which was valued at a
thousand yen ($300) a Japanese Toot.
Curiously, however. in looking:
through the price catalogue of the
house, the price of the dress of the
first-class is less than that of the middle-class
woman. In the catalogue
special emphasis is laid upon the fact
that the house endeavors to bring the
price of the choicest goods within
the reach of reduced purses. As a
matter of fact, is is undoubtdly true
that the great middle class of nouveau
riche is able to spend far more money
upon dress and adornment than many
of the present day representatives of
the ancient houses of power and im
portance. In an alcove just beyond those de
voted to the bridal costumes was one
furnished with beautiful wedding pres
ents of the olden time the equipment
of old houses of the Tokugawa period.
Here were such lovely old laquers as
one scarcely dared to handle. Thus
there was one fine black lacquered
box lid with a representation inside in
gold-dust lacquer of the scene of the
Chinese poet lost In admiration of a
cascade in the mountains; mercury
was cunningly introduced in such a
fashion that when properly placed, a
cascade was seen in action. There
were toilet cases and old mirrors
which had belonged to princely fam
ilies. There was a set of ceremonial
drinking cups for use at the wedding
made of red lacquer with patterns
raised in gold: these cups were broad,
low bowls, almost as flat and shallow
as table plates. The 12 composing
the outfit were of different sizes, and
were stacked one on another, the
least above; when used, they were
passed from hand to hand, the first
one at the beginning of the wedding
feast being the smallest; the others
succeeded each other in order of size
until the largest, last.
In every Japanese living and recep
tion room the place of honor is the
tokonnma. It is an alcove, the flcor
of which stands at a little greater
he'ght than that of the room itself
Upon this slightly elevated platform
the only decorations of the room are
placed It is here that the floral ar
rangement for the time will be con
structed. There Is usually a little

Ivory or wood or a rare bronze,
lovely rase or other piece of pottery,
or some other article of beauty will
be placed. Upon the wall at the rear
of the tokonoma there Is usually a
kakemono or scroll with a painting or
inscription upon it Not the least
interesting thing about Matsuya's dis
play was the togonoma of the wed
ding house or rather of the home of
the young people. The platform and
the stand and other supports used In'
it were all of clean white wood, beau
tifully smooth and pure. The central
object in such a tokonoma consists of
shimadal which is usually a little ar
tificial pine tree under which are rep
resented an old man and woman withj
white hair: cranes may be perched
among the branches or standing on
the ground below; and usually a tor
toise, the kind with the broad and1
hairy tail "the ten thousand year tor
toise;" to the right and left of the
shimadai are stands which bear
symbolic gifts, of foods, while before
it on a little stand of its own is sL
symbolic shallow bowl of sake; in tW
remaining space are usually arranged;
little stands or tables upon which are
gifts of food or other presents, all ot
which usually have symbolic meaning.
We bad already noticed a shop
where such presents were manu
factured. We had recognized that
they were present, but not that they
had special reference to weddings.
Having seen Matsuya's great display.
i we hastened to visit two or three of
the places where shimadai and other
forms of wedding gifts are made. In
the good old times, before the Occl-
j dental influence was strong, every such
shop was marked by a pair of tai fish
in wood, painted red. hung above the
door. Such signboards, alas, are now
a rarity. Where else does the con
stant symbolism of the Japanese make
so strong an impression upon the
, visiter as at such shops?
Alwaj-s present in the stock will be
1 two immense representations of tai
fish made in bright red stuff or soft
crepe-like texture. These' fish usually
rest with heads and mouths quite
close together upon a stand of clean
j white wood, with artificial leaves of
' green bamboo tucked under them.
Such a pair of tai fishe are an emblem
of conjugal fidelity and love. The
pine tree alone or with various ob
jects associated with it is always to
be seen. The pine is evergreen.
i hence a natural symbol for long life
and eternal happiness. The white hair
of the old man and woman so fre
quently shaded under its branches in
dicate the years of life which the
giver wishes to be the lot of the
young couple. The turtle with Its
long broad tail of streaming hair
seaweed is reputed to live ten thou
sand j ears, and conveys the wish that
similar length of life may come. An
other symbol of longevity always to,
be seen in such places is really nat;
uralistic representations of lobsters,
or lobster-like crustaceans, which are,
generally made in red or purple stuff.,
Very common is a massing together
of a great stalk of red coral, a sack bul
ging with precious contents, and oth
er emblems symbolic of wealth the.
well-known "jewel" among them; such
of course delicately convey the wish
that the recipient may have bills of
treasure, mountains of wealth. Some
times a great figure of an elephant
made in delicate pearl-gray stuff 1b
used as the bearer of the various
symbolic presents instead of a simple
stand of wood. In all these symbolic
forms, whether tai fish or coral
branch or treasure mountan or lob
ster, the cloth or material which is
used is uncut and unsewedr in other
words, unbroken pieces of cloth are
used in their construction: the ob
ject being that after the wedding has.

apt to to run on forever. We wish,
only to call attention to one othen
symbolic present to be seen in the!
maker's shop. It is a form of rebus)
only, instead of the pictures of the!
rebus representing sounds, they call
up an association of ideas; and. In-'
stead of being drawn or painted, theyl
are stamped-out objects, which are.
arranged upon a long and narrow:
board. These boards, about three feet
in length and four inches wide, are!
perforated at the upper end for hang
ing by a peg or nail against the wall;;
upon them are a half dozen of the
symbolic objects. Of course, to a for!
eigner who knows nothing of the lani
gunge and little of the poems, songs;
traditions and theatrical representa-
tions of the people, the meaning of;
these compositions is lost. To a JapJ
anese. however, of intelligence and
education, this plain and simple board
with its pretty attached objects calls
up a precious memory from some an
cient drama or poem. It is among
the prettiest forms of wedding pres
ents. (Copyright. 1910. by W. G. Chapman.)
Attorney Clem V. Hull, with much
gusto, tells this story on himself.
"I was in conference with a client
on one of those dreadfully hot days
and not wanting to leave him even
for an instant I called an office boy,
gave him a quarter and said: 'Go get
me a pint of Vichy and be quick about
it, too, I'm- simply burning up.
"My client was an elder in the
church and my purpose was not only
to quench my own thirst, but to offer
him a nice cooling drink as well.
"In five minutes the boy was back.
He thrust his head through the door

Long Serpentine Wharf.
One of the longest wharves in the
world, almost a mile in length, or, to
be exact, 4,700 feet. Is at Port Los
Angeles, Cal. It extends into the Pa
cific for a long serpentine curve. The
reason for this, construction Is that it
offers better resistance to the strong
currents and the buffetings of the
waves than if it were perfectly
straight. Until the nearby harfcor or
San Pedro was developed by the fed
eral government the big wharf at Port
Los Angeles was a very busy place,
but of late it is comparatively seldom
used except by the Japanese fisher
men, who have formed a colony along
the adjacent beach.
LABOR DAY PROCLAMATION.
In recognition of the importance ot
the subject of labor, the first Monday
in September of each year has been
by the law-making body set apart as
a legal holiday.
The peace, prosperity and progress
of the nation and the commonwealth
depend upon the well-being of those
In hearty accord with this spirit, L
Ashton C. Shallenberger, governor of
the state of Nebraska, do hereby pro
claim Monday, September 5. 1910.
Labor Day, to be observed in such
manner and by such ceremonies and
exercises as may be appropriate to so
vital an occasion. It is my sincere
desire that the day be celebrated, not
alone by those who are employed, but
also by those who employ, and by all
those who feel a concern for their
country's welfare. I recommend that
so far as possible the factory, work
shop, store and other places wherein
labor Is employed be closed, to the
end that the forces which have con
tributed so generously to the prosper
ity of the state and the nation be
given an opportunity to enjoy the
holiday and participate in the festivi
ties of the event.
In witness whereof, I have here
unto set my hand and caused to he

The mayor and city attorney of
Crawford have filed a complaint with
the railway commission charging that
the Burlington road has failed to abide
by a contract made several years ago
whereby the city of Crawford vacated

the railroad company obstructs streets
to such an extent that it is impossible
for one to go from one end of the
town to the other.
