the melody and accompaniment on the

Omaha, and is mastered by but few artists.
An eastern manager recently offered Mr.
Elliott seven hundred dollars, ($700,) a

clined, preferring to remain In Omaha

ness In his rice mills and In Importing all
sorts of American goods for Coreans.
lu addition to these there are about 15u
missionaries, representing the diffiren;
churches of the United States. They have
their stations In all parts cf the couutry.
They have excellent schools and are doing
a vast deal of good. The most of thrni are
men of good education and sterling ability.
Several have written books about the
country and not a few have aldid In or
ganizing schools for the emperor.
Aniertran iootla in Com,
The Coreans already take much American
cotton and this trade can be greatly In
creased. The whole population dresses in
cotton and the country raises practically
none. They want the best of cotton and
like to have It of all colors, pinks, light
blues, yellows and whites. In the winter
they pad their clothes with raw cotton for
warmth. The trade Is hart'ly large enough
to warrant sending an agent to Corea
alone, but In connection with Manchuria
and North China It could be made profitable.
There are steamships which go from Nag
asaki and Kobe to Tien Ts'.n, calling at
Fusan and Chemulpo. The time from Kobe
to Chemulpo by direct steamer Is three or
four days and by the regular steamers
which call here It Is about six days. The
fare from Yokohama to Chemulpo Is $25
geld, and, I should judge. Just about a
much additional to cross the Yellow sea
from Chemulpo to Tien Tsln.
Corea can also be taken In on the way to
Vladlvostock. There are steamers from
Nagasaki and Fusan around the east coast
to Gensan and then north to Vladlvostoc
at the eastern terminus of the Trans
blDerlan road. I have traveled on all of
these lines and have found the food In
variably good and the other accommoda
Mora comparatively so. The trip across th
Yellow sea Is apt to be boisterous and some
what dangerous, but a tour can be planned
which should result In many orders for ou
commercial travelera who represent th
articles most desired by the people.
Whnt the Coreans Want.
American drummers who speak English
only can get along at any of the ports, fo
mere us always some one there to act as
Interpreter. In their trips to the Interio
they will need to carry a guide and inter
preters. There are hotels at Chemulpo
Seoul, Oensan and FuBan. That at Seoul
is Japanese, with beds on the floor. Th
prices everywhere are about $2 per day
and the Interior travel Is comparatively
Some knowledge of Corea and the Corea na
Is needed before coming. The things you
might suppose to be In most demand are
not wanted at all. For Instance, It Is cold
there In winter, but you could not give
away atoves. The rooms of most Corean
houses are email and they are heated by
flue which run under the floors. Cook
stoves are unknown and furniture of ou
kind is not wanted.
There Is a gcod opening for American to
bacco. Men, women and children smoke
and everyone has his pipe. The people
grow some tobacco, but they do hot under
stand how to cure It, and prefer the for
elgn article. There la a great demand for
cigarettes, but not much for cigars, except
(hose as thick ae a lead pencil. The em
peror smokes cigarettes. He prefers Amer
ican makes, and especially likes the Vlr
glnla tobacco. There are many Japanese
cigarettes sold and quite a lot of native
cigarettes, which sell as low as twenty for
With the new railroads there will be
some demand for American machinery,
rails and rolling stock, although It le prob
able that the Japanese will equip their lines
as far as possible from their own country.
Quite a let of bridging will have to be
done and there should be a market there
for our Pacific coast lumber.
Ranking and Money Matters.
The new banks started by Americans will
probably make money. Interest rates are
very high and the people will borrow to the
full extent of their possibilities. The court
spends a great deal and, notwithstanding
the poverty of the masses, there are nobles
who live as extravagantly as our rich men
at home. Among the poor and out in the
interior copper cash is the principal cur
rency. It takes a thousand and more cash
to equal the value of a silver dollar, and if
one travels far he must take along an extra
mule or bullock to carry his money.
Extortion Is often practiced by the higher
officials, and du.-ing the winter especially
there is danger from robbers. Aa a result
the natives have curious waya of conceal
ing their money. They make the earth
their safe deposit boxes. They dig a pit in
the yard back rf the house and cover Its
bottom with cash. They now spread some
earth over the cash and reduce It to a mud
by sprinkling It with water. They do thla
when the thermometer Is below freezing
point and In a short time the money and
mud have become one solid mass. Then
they sprinkle more money on top of thla
and follow with another layer of mud. This
lis frozen In turn and so It goes on until all
the money Is tbua embedded. The earth
near the top of the pit contains no money,
but as it is well wet down It ia also frozen
solid and remains ao until spring.
