During tho last visit to this country Robert Louis Stevenson escaped a very npleasant experience and never knew t, according to a story told in Harpers' Vcekly. A journalist, who knew itcvcnson by his published portraits, ntered a railway car at Long Branch, ncl saw the famous author seated m a orner, with a black square box on the ppositc seat and a rubber tube dang- ing from it. The conductor knew the ourualist, and said to him, pointing to Ir. Stevenson: "I'm going to put that man with tho. ing hair oil the train. He is smoking. asked him not lo, but he's been at, it :fain while- I've been out of the ear." "lie is not smoking,'' said tlie journalist; "that, is some device for ferrying medicine, in the form of a vapor, which he inhales in his lungs, lie is an invalid. That, is Robert Louis Stevenson, the novelist." The conductor seemed interested, but only for 11 minute. ' ; 1 don't care,'' said he. *'It doesn't matter who he is. I call it smoking, aud he's beep at it ever since I told him not to." The journalist tried another tack. "Did you ever read 'Kidnaped?'" he asked. "Naw," said the conductor. "I don't care what ho is; he's got to obey the rules." The journalist persisted: "Did you ever read "Treasure Island?" "^aw,'' said the conductor. "I don't read many novels; they are all trash, anyhow."' "Hold on," said the journalist. "Did yon ever road 'Dr. Jekyll ant! Mr. Hyde?' He v,-rote that also." "What!"' said the conductor. "Did I rend 'Jekklc 'n' Hyde?' Well, I gness I did. Couidn't sleep the night I finished. I seen it played in the theater, too. It's great, ain't it? WelJ, that man is a dandy, ain't he? lie can smoke—be can; tain't what you call smoking, is it? Sick, is be? Ho does look sick. I'd like to see anyone object to a man like that taking his medicine." WHERE LOVERS BOW. The Shrino of a Japanese Q-oddesfl Who Smooths Love's Path, A F»mon» nncldMat Establishment In th« Sacred City of Kyoto—Onco » Pl»c« of FunUhmcnt for the ^ Faltlilrm. Uroirth of the Bmtr. The influence of diet on the growth of hair has often been discussed. It has been shown that starchy mixtures, milk, and many other foods recognized os being highly nutritious are, in fact, sure death to hair growth. Chemical analysis proves that tbe hair is composed of five per cent, of sulphur and its ash, of twenty per cent, of silicon and ten. per cent, of iron and manganese. The foods which contain the larger per cent, of the above named elements are meat, oatmeal and graham. Henry pointedly says: "Xations which eat most meat have, the most hair." Output of Novel*. One thousand novels are. published in London every year— -that is, ten and • half a day. All the world loves a lover, and tho Japanese are as romantic and susceptible to the tender passion as any other people, strangely as their customs and etiquette conceal nml confound its manifestations, writes Elica Ruhamah Scidmorc in Harper's Bazar. They have their sentimental poems and romantic novels as well as western people, and the affecting tale of the baffled and unhappy love of Oompachi and Komurasaki parallels that of Huloiso and Abclard in popular interest. The lovers" grave in the temple grounds at Jlegiiro, south of Tokyo, is us much a place of sentimental pilgrimage as that white tomb in 1'ere la Chaise where lio the immortal priest and nun. The trees around this tomb flutter with paper poems and prayers, and instead of carrying away a leaf or a stone from tho grave of the lovers, those Latins of tbo orient leave a souvenir. When tho course of true love does not run- smoothly, a?id only divine intervention c;m melt stern parents' hearts and clear away clouds and obstacles, the true lover must seek the aid of Kwamr.osube no Kama, the goddess who watL-hcs over the aiJairsof the heart, Her most famous shrine in at the KiomiJx.n temple in Kyoto, ono of the oldest a.nd most, famous Buddhist establishments in that sacred city. In it is enshrined one of the thirty-three ec'.lcbralcd images of Kwannon, the goddess of mercy, and to it pilgrims Hock by thousands cvvrv summer. The temple nnci pagoda roofs are outlined high against the fali;ige of Kyoto's eastern hillside, and the steep street climbing from the river to i(« ponderous gateway is the celebrated Teapot hill, a way lined 0:1 either side for a'whole half-mile with an almost unbroken row of the most fascinating little china shops. Tho Hondo, or great hall of the temple, has a platform built at ono side that overha.njj.s the edge of a precipice falling sheer several hundred feet to the ravine below. In the old days jealous husbands used to carry their suspected wives to tins place and throw them over the platform rail. If tho victims survived the fall, they were innocent, and of course the results proved that no innocent women were ever dashed to pieces on the rocks below Kiomidxu. Ko husband ever went away with a heavy conscience, and tho divine Kwannon never interposed to save by miracule or parachute. Off in a remote corner of a similar platform, built out from the Amida or hall dedicated to BuHdha himself, is Kwamnosuhe no Kama's simple littie shrine. A grating of nnpaintcd wood hides the altar within, and the grating^ is covered with a thousand little strips of paper, each the prayer of some anxious pilgrim. 'To secure the aid of tho benevolent goddess one buys a printed prayer from the priests in the Amida, folds it into a narrow ribbon, and, witli the thumb and little finger only of the right hand, ties it to the grating. If any other fingers are used, or the bit of paper is even toucJied by them, the charm is broken, thu goddess deaf, and the appeal vain. Anxious and perturbed as these unhappy ones must all have been, they have taken time to fasten these curl-paper petitions with, some very elaborate knots and loops while they were imploring tbe goddess*, aid- One may sit on the benches of tho platform and consume tea and sugar flowers, and watch the men and women, youths and maidens, people in rustling silks, softest crapes, or commonest cotton garments, who seek that shrine. All classes bny and tie before the altar; and witn earnest faces clap their hands to call the goddess'attention, bow their heads, and make their heart's iorrovr known to Kwamnosube no Kama.
