History tens as that the Spaniards took possession of IXJtmuaa in the year l»St. They w«re expelled by the Dotch in I«42. Xineseea jean later a Chinese pirate chief named Koxinga dm« out the Dvtcfc and proclaimed himself kins of the island, but in 1CS1 ihe Chinese dethroned his successor, and Ftiraosa lemained a province of the Middle Kingdom np to the war be- tween China, and Japan, as a result of which it paused into the passesskai of the Mikado's empire. A glance at the map wffl show that Ftonnosais really the nmtbennost tsV and of the group which w« caU the FmXIIppines, being attested only a short distance to the north of Unoa.

Many oC their akUitou have been fboad In the mount aiasan inte- .rior, and it is reasoaabte to cnppose that they were exterminated by the savages who now occupy their tern- ttry- As already stated, these savages bare never been sabdoed. From an ethnological point of view, they are more than ordinarily interesting. Their garb ranges from nudtty to gay- cdored garrcents of their own weav- ing, made from the fibers of banana and ramie. The women are kindly treated acd have eoual r^tts with the znes. Bot if a wife loses her tasbacd after the birtb. of a cMM s*se is jsot al- krxed to marry again, the idea being that her business thereafter is to si- teal to the upbringing ef her off- sncinc. Twans are a bad omen, and anon*; aonie of the tribes It has been customary to Me them to a tree and permit them te perish. Sfcknee* is supposed to he a puntsh- it Inflicted by the spirits of the dead. Dreams afford a medium through which the spirits of the dead communicate -with the living. The Atayal and Paiwan groups believe the virgin forests to be the abode of the spirits of theh- ancestors, and on this account trees within certain desig- nated areas are never disturbed. Old men and women have supernatural' powers of the Itind usually attributed to witches, and for this reason they perform the religious rites for the tribe. Spirits of dead persons other than, ancestors are dangerous and possibly materolent. The Atayal consider that the ghosts of their forbears win not be satisfied unless a human head Is part of the offering made at ceremo- nials. Likewise In the case of a dis- pute between two persons the spirits of his ancestors will guide and pro- tect the one whose cause is Just, so that he may obtain the first head and thereby win. The toil of Formosa Is exceedingly rich, and nowhere Is a finer quality «f tea produced. The eastern half of the island Is covered with jungle, in which grows the valuable creeper known as rattan. But the most prec- ious vegetable product is camphor, which Is the resin of a tree that grows to huge size, sometimes attaining a diameter of twelve feet. The only way to get the camphor is to chop the tree Into chips, which are subjected to a crude process of dis- tillation, the vapor, when condensed, being deposited In crystals on bamboo screens. This is crude camphor, which comes to market in wooden tabs. It Is refined by redistillation. At the present time Japan exports about 5,000,000 pounds, of camphor annually, one-fourth of it being ship- ped to the United States. It used to be refined in Europe and America, but BOW tie Japanese refine their own comphor and ship the finished pro- duct.

Xewton Crane, senior counsel to the American embassy in London, toM the royal commission on divorce in England recently that there is a higher stendard^pf morality in Amer- ica than in England- He admitted that divorce Is more prevalent in this country than' in any other country in the world except Japan, but contended this was due to the fact that persons of respecta- bility had come to regard divorce as a firmly established institution, de- signed to cure unhappiness. J. A. Barratt, of counsel to the American embassy, pointed out tha there are more varied causes for dl force in European countries than in ae United States. In Austria "In vincible aversion," in Hungary "vesa tious mortification," in France "prodi galitr and violent disposition," in Swe- dea "opposite of feeling and though amounting to hate" and in Formosa loquacity** are considered sufficien grounds for divorce. la Algeria, where there are thirteen causes, "previous wooing in which no fical acceptance or refusal has been made" was a cause of divorce. Bar ratt argued there is not a single caus «* g'pwee in any") stnte In this :oia try that cannot be duplicated ir Europe. * The O«ft Hand. The Widow--Oh, Mr. Smith, you'l aerer make me believe that?
