To the tum-tuming of the kettle drums
hung over the necks of shaggy Mongol
pontes, to the flaring and the brasslness,
the blaring and the aaaslnesa of shrill Chi
nese horns, to the ruatle of thoae bright
yellow Umi robes, to the clatter of 400
doughty Httle pony hoofs, the clanking of
the swords of their Important looking Chi
nese soldier riders and the choruses of
sharp, shrill shouts to hustle the street
crowds out of the way of these same
riders as the cavalcade swings along and
horrors! to the toot-tooting of the rail
road train whistle, the Dalai Um of Tibet,
the Jewel of Majesty, the Sovereign Treae
ure, made his way into the capital city of
the Middle Kingdom today.
The sftt chunking harmony of the oamel
bells djwn by the city moat along the
railroad rhythmically keeps time with the
chewing, chewing, chewing of 200 mouths la
eocentrlo motion as the camels wait to be
loaded by their Mongol and Tibetan bag
gage smashers. Bmall mountains of yak
skin and hair-covered boxes, each capped
by a shock of matty, black hair and
mass of coarse winter clothes lust as black
though not originally so as those which
cover a dusky Tatar watcher upon whom
the water of the moat, dark as It Is, yearns
for a chance these lines of hills hedge
In the army of desert-traveled beasts along
the freight tracks. '
Odor a necessity.
And this odor, as of richest Llmburger
after many days, and that other, as of an
Ellis Island detention room are these
proper things to present to the sensitive
nostrils of the Dalai Lama upon his ar
rival? Proper? Perfectly. Forsooth, he
could not thrive without them. These odors

In the doorway. A foreigner steals up

"ytyth a Punch and Judy, apelike laugh he
jumps back Into the car and cautiously

No spirits are going to get hold of him

Over on the fear platform of the railroad

now the Chinese soldier-police, of the city,
two companies of them not very many

In a scattered fashion to try to get Into line

They are a pretty, natty looking crowd

This was a victory for the-Reds, but not
for long. The Tellowi" finally triumphed,
and In Hit their chief priest the Dalol
Lama, became the sole temporal power In
Tibet. A divine origin was discovered for
the Dalai Lamas by the fifth of the line
about 1360, when the Reds were driven out
of power entirely. About 1760 the power of
China over Tibet was firmly established

But the Dalai was In no hurry to come to
Peking for his audience with the emperor.
He knew he had been almost a naughty
boy In 11 king the Russians so well and tak
ing so much ctndy from them. He knew
that Papa China recognised what Russia
was after and had no loving feelings to
see the Dalal's Valuable toy, Tibet, coddled

He also knew that really the only thing
hs was wanted for In Peking was to have
Papa China assured that, while, of course.
he could have a little fun of his own wltn
his toy Tibet, it really was papa's prop
erly, and that he, the Dalal, must always
be a good boy and do what he was told.
"But," may have thought the Dalai, 'In
our travels we have learned that there are
other countries more powerful than China.
We want them."
So he tried hide and seek with Papa. He
was coming, but always next montn, until,
as It was said, "Big Man" Tuan Snlti Kal
in the grand council advised the emperor
to send lor the Deshl Lama, second In com
mand In Tibet Then the Dalai cume on

about 100 mile over country and thence to

They are a gentle looking lot who seem not
altogether sure as to what these things
are that they are carrying over their shoul

The foreigners look down from the top of

laugh and stand and crane to get a look.
The crowd is not impressed at all, but
rather regards the parade in something of
the humorous vein. And this Is the atti

things a little more seriously and who

ahlre. Immediately after they gat settled
early in January. The purchaea f the ae
tata Is not yet competed, but will be ar
ranged before that time.
The daughter of Arabaaeador Reld and
her Engltah hue band, eonaider themselves
very fortunate In having secured so fine
a place as Chilton Lodge, und before they
heard that the estate, which formerly be
longed to Sir William George Pearce, Bart.,
was for sale, they had inspected a auore or
more places on the market. But In every
caae, . the housea did not meature up to
their expectations. As a matter of fact, it
was only by the Unreal chance that they
secured Chilton Lodge.
Hearing that it was for aule, accom
panied by Mr. and Mrs. Reld and Georglna
Lady Dudley, they motored down from
London to look It over. They had decided
to take It, when they discovered a man
walking In the grounds, and subsequent In
quiry developed the fact that he was Sir
Alexander Henderson, who haa been called
the "Mark Hanna of England," and that
be had bought the estate that aame morn
ing for ffcJO.000. Some time later, Sir Alex
ander heard of the Incident and Immedi

the place to the Warda. and the offer was
The Chilton Lodge' estate Is situated on
the border line between Berkshire and
Wiltshire, a little over sixty miles from
London. It eomprlaes about 2,331 acres of
ground, sight farms and seventy-three cot-
tagea and lodges, In addition to Chilton
Lodge Itself. There are about 2S4 seres of
woodland, providing excellent shooting, the
average annual bag of the last three sea
eons being about S.flOO head. The river
Kent, which forma a purt ot the southern
boundary of the eatate, affords good trout
and grayling fishing. . . ,
The mansion Itself la a aubatantlully built
structure of Bath atone and red brick,
partly in the "classical" style of the
Georgian period, with an Imposing portico
on the south side. It atanda on an eleva
tion In a beautiful park of ICO acres, and
la approached by a fine winding drive from
tho village of Chilton Foliat.
It Is the intention of the Wards to reserve
a apeclal room for hia majesty, who Is
expected to be a frequent visitor because
of hia sincere attachment to both Mr. and
Mra. Ward. Although no definite decision
haa been come to yet. It is very likely that
his room will be that known as the "Cela
don room," on the first flour, with a large
dressing room attached. The room meas
ures 24x30 feet six Inohes, and is at present
fitted with a magnificent carved wood
mantel. Mra., Ward, acting upon the In
timate Information which her husband pos-
aeaaes, Is taking considerable pleasure In
fitting up this room for the king's use.
The stabling accommodations are not
large, but will probably meet the needs ot
the young couple for the time to come.
The coach-houae provides standing for ten
carriages and the stable haa six atalls ad
