In my Witch Hatel 8oap the man, woman or child who wishes to derive the greatest pleasure, comfort and benefit from the
bath will find a perfect combination of the three. It will stimulate the pores, cleanse and freshen the cuticle, Impart a

IIU WD'S WIT ASD WISDOM.
There Is an old Spanish proverb which
'.js: "He who goes sbroad to get knowl
edge must tsks knowledge with him." For
this reason, relates ths Washington Poet,
his excellency, Wu Tin? Fang, who brought
to the United States much of Oriental as
well as Occidents! wlcdom, returns to China
with much that will pros of lasting benefit
to his country. No other envoy of a forelgu
power, especially from an Asiatic country,
ever showed a greater or more intelligent

Ths position held for Ove years by Min
ister Wu was at do time a sinecure, ths
dissimilarity of the conditions and tbs di
versity of the populations In ths t'nltsd
States and China making It difficult to pre
vent misunderstanding's eveu ilk time Of
Ths outbreak In China In June, 1900,
brought Minister Wu Into peculiar and far
reaching prominence, and there was much
ustursl curiosity, la this country and Eu
rope, as to ths manner la which this high
tjf of Oriental, ingrafted with weatera
culture and progress, would acquit himself.
His fidelity to duty la remaining at ths
legation during tbs Intenss heat of a Wash
ington summer, his frequent visits to ths
Stats department to furnish or rsceive ths
lstest dispatches, his urbanity, even when
threatened with personal violence, crltU
clsed by the press, snd unjustly aecuaed
by the public, and his unfailing faith and
courags called forth the admiration of the
civilised world. Few men, irrespective of
race or clime, under ths same circum
stances, would bavs mads so few mistakes.
Minister Wu has shown himself master
of that subtls art which ha defines ss

coal from ths Tal-ptng mines to tbs port of
Taku. Alrsady It has branches In ssveral
directions, and from ths first has paid a

Minister Wu came to this country with a
serious purpose to break down the preju
dices sgilnst his people, and It Is still his
dearest hop that, before many years, the
Chinese will be placed on an equal footing
with the other great nations of ths world,
la respect to our trade relations with his
nnuatry Minister Wi aitntoe etatUHre for
his sssertlon that, of several staple com
modities manufactured la the United States,
China Is our heaviest purchaaer. Quoting
Confucius' maxim, "What you do not like
dons to yourself do not de to others, Mr.
Wu declares that reciprocity originated
with that ssge, five centuries before the
Nssarene eald: "Therefore all things what
soever ye would that men should do to you,
do ye even so to them."
Mr. Wu's accomplishments as a public
spesker ere too well known to require com
ment His profound logic, forceful argu
ment 'and lightning-like wit would have
given him a high place among the Jurists
and orators of any country. He speaka our
language with a alight accent that char

nent of Europe and hla mastery of our Idiom
Ones, by a little unconscious play on
worda that escaped the reporters. Minister
Wu provided much amusement for a large
number of persons. About thrss years ago
he delivered a memorable address for the
benefit of one of the mission churches of
ths city. Referring to the part played by
Unite eM Tr'rT Tenia H. Roberts
In securing hie services as speaker for the
evening, Mr. Wu said: "When Mr. Roberts
csms for me he looked so respectable that
I could not refuse. Tou know, In China,
we have great respect for age. At this
the large audience Indulged In a shout of
laughter at Mr. Roberts' expense. "I don't
mean that he la so old," continued Mr. Wu.
"It may be that he Is not much older than
I am, but be looked so respectable that I
bad to come with him."
A committee called on Mr. Wu to request
blm to address a society connected with one
of the fashionable churches of Washington.
Casual mention was mads of the fact that
the youthful pastor of the church had re
cently resigned to enter upon a new field of
labor on the Paclfle coaet.
"Why did he resign?" asked Mr. Wu.
"Because he had received a call to an
other church," was ths reply.
"What salary did you pay hlmT"
"Four thousand dollars."
"What is his present salary?"
"Eight thousand dollars."
"Ah!" said ths dlsclpls of Confucius. "A
very loud call!"
Mr. Wu fces bn a keen observer of the
difference between the manners and cus
toms of this country and his own. His ob
servations hsvs not been limited to bis own
exclusive social clrele, for he has keenly
enjoyed mingling with all classes of Amer
ican people and has manifested to all the
gentle courtesy which makes ths patrician
of svery race and age.
He has shown particular interest in re
gard to courtship and marriage in the
United States, and, comparing our observ
ances with thoas of his country, considers
that there Is room for Improvsment In
both. He thinks tbs young people of China
should be permitted, under proper circum
stances, to converse occasionally with those
to whom they are affianced and la equally
convinced that there la too much freedom
of association and too little deference to
the wishes of parsnts and guardians In

In China persons of rank do not see their
future husbands or wives until ths mar

In his lnlmltabls manner how, with a little

friends, ha managed to obtain at a distance
of thirty feet, a glimpse of ths young lady
who had been choeea to be his wlfs. Mrs,
