Airedale Never Hesitated When Called Upon to Make the Supreme Sacrifice to Duty. i — Again a mother has given her life for her young. This time the setting is the San Francisco waterfront, down where whistles scream, hoists 'squeal and rattle, engines chug and there is a mechanical ensemble of industrial noise the long day through. The principals are dogs — a wiry-haired Airedale mother and her four puppies. " A scow was home 'to the canine family. • One day a swell overturned the basket In which the pups lay, and overboard they went. There was no human aid near. But the mother leaped' to the rescue of her drowning offspring. One by one she brought the little pups to safety. But before she could reach the last one It drowned. Men found her on deck, still holding the body of the dead puppy, and with the three others scrambling and whin- Ing around her. The mother was too exhausted to move. 'Jhey sent for a physician, but when he arrived tha rescued pups were orphans. ...

Baron Rempel Kondo, president of the Japan Mail Steamship 'company, said at a dinner that he gave recently in New York: "The Japanese are a very clean peopler I know an American traveler who will testify to this.

He was.bored by the conver-^ satlon of his grown-ups; even bed was preferable to this. Then, suddenly, he turned . an Interested, enquiring face toward his parents. Aunt Nell's name had been mentioned, and Bobby was very fond of Annt NelL They were discussing her quarrel with Jack Tolfrees. Bobby knew about the quarrel, for when he had asked Nell why Jack didn't drive them about any more, Nell explained loftily that It was because she "didn't care to have him." And when -Bobby aSked Tack, why It was that Annt Nell "didn't care 1 ' to have him," Jack had rudely mumbled that Nell could "go to the dickens." ' Bobby knew that all this signified a quarrel. It wa's the way that Fred Williams and be had felt toward' each other. His mother at this time was saying to Bobby's father: "I don't knew what will become of your sister; she Is so unconcerned about pleasing the men. Poor Jack couldn't help being Jealous, and when he found fa.ult with Nell for going about with that new man, she promptly gave Jack to understand that he had nothing to do with her. If he hasn't, after all his devoted''attention, who has, I wonder." "N.o one evidently," Bobby's father answered, laughingly. "But Nell really cares for him at the bottom of her stubborn heart, Bobby's mother insisted, "arid as for Jack, he admitted to me that she's the only girl In . the world for him. However, he has pride and determination enough not to go back to tier until she makes the firsii,a<iv»nce., so—" — "So." Bobby's father - finished sarcastically. "He has a fine chance!" "Mother," piped up Bobby, "when 'are you going away over night?" "Next week, dear," his mother replied. "Can Aunt Nell stay with me then7" "I have already asked'her to." his mother smilingly told him. When the automobile had carried his parents away for their visit. Bobby went a little lonesomely to his pretty and unusually subdued young aunt. "Nell," he asked, "while mother Is gone, can't I have a party? Not a big one; just a few boys and girls In to play games, and cake an' sa'wltches; mebbe, just mebbe—Ice cream?" "Why, yes," ^Nell agreed. "I think 'that would be all right; only do not ask any one to the house, whom mpth- .er has not had here before. Sis or eight will be enough, dear. When do you want to invite them?" "This afternoon," Bobby answered promptly, and set joyously out upon his errand. - •' When he returned his face still bore Its happv. look of anticipation.' : 'Til wear my new suit to the party tomorrow," he answered, "and 'you wear your blue dress." Aunt Nell laughed. "I want you to," he insisted. "You've got to play games with us, and everything." "All right lover," she agreed, and as Nell spoke her pet name for the boy, a sad light came into her eyes.. Bobby went cheerfully' about his preparations ''for the party and when the. eagerly awaited hour arrlved...ln- stalled himself at the front' door: is reception committee. ..:.... Aunt Nell vjas masterfully ordered to "start the jiijiijies." .. : ' The pensivflfieSjS which had made her an unsatisfactory companion vanished as she joined hands with the rollicking party ring, while' an uncomfortable little boy skirted around.the outside .waiting to drop his handkerchief behind the one he "loved the best." Aunt Nell being diplomatically i chosen caught the embarrassed boy j and soon again the ring was swinging. Bobby, his door duty accomplished, eagerly joined the others. "Go choose your east, go choose your west, go choose the very one that you love best," the children sang. ' . Aunt Nell glanced merrily around, again saw the handekn.'hief at her feet. Then her eyes widened. Startled, perplexed, she. hesitated. It was Jack Tolfrees^'who stood be- hin'd her, Jack, who had-dropped the challenge to the pne he "loved • the best." His appealing glance at the girl proved the seriousness—to him—of the game. Then after a breathless Instant Nell played her part. She ran after him out of the room, up the stairs, "while it wildly on. It was Jack, however, who caught Nell possessively in his arms, at the resting place of the stairs. ' "Darling girl," he said, "it was like you to have Bobby invite me to the party. Your own pretty way of end: ing my misery." Nell gasped. "But I didn't tell Bobby to invite you," she denied. "I did not even know that you Would be here." At the^stricken change of her lover's face she put forth impulsively, tenderly welcoming hands. ".But oh! I am so glad that he did ask you," Nell said, "Bobby, the understanding dear." American Commercial Attache Points Out How/ Problem Facing That Country May Be Met.

Arnold, has laid eiripiiasis on this in an article', in 1 the Chinese Recorder.-^..: "Chinajs Economic ''Problems 1 and Christian : Missionary Effort." Mr. Arnold deals with the necessity of preparing the Chinese people for the great economic change which- is upon them. . Railways will mean- much to China, but the necessity for the training and preparation of which Mr. Arnold speaka Is shown, to be distinctly urgent when .Prof. Middleton Smith's views on the use of airplanes to China are .known. China is a land of waterways,, and these \yutenvays afford the necessary existing lines of transportation along which, to secure the. success of. commercial aviation, airdromes 'and supply depots should be., established. >.,-. Schools of technical train'inr should .supply the necessary Chinese skilled labor, and with these; aerial services established, Professor Smith foresees.
