Its ! ambassadors and ministers and. con- i sul-generalh and consuls are men i who may feel practically sure that i nothing but promotion or bad service will cause their removal from tho posts tht'3" fill. Politics play almost no 'part in tho matter at all, except with the foreign minister—the nominal head of the department. And even he—and he is by no means tho most important person in tho service—is certain to bo chosen because he is fit to serve. The mere fact that a man is an aged politician, worn out by the winning- of other and infinitely diverse official "honors," will not secure his appointment to any branch of the diplomatic service. Parliament asks even more questions than congress due:;, and bad appointments are likely to create a storm. All this is merely to show that Eng- cuffs that you can clean yourself by simply wiping off with a wet sponge. Tht genuine look exactly like linen and every piece is marked this way : 3d by the queen; nn Englishman of •ovorbubbling patriotism.

'Ho is Sir Edwin Arnold, celebi'ated as iho author of "The Light of Asia" and •many, other wonderful books, and, lately, by his—shall we call it Japomaniu? For tho most delightful Sunday afternoon of ray stay in London, I am to him indebted. England and tho English evince an' Bven deeper interest in Japan and her recent d,oing than does America. The '.Ijondonjpapers print less detailed news •of -the war, but they print more comment on its possible results and take tho Cwhole thing more seriously than wo do. Apart of that can bo attributed to tho laot that England is willing to take almost anything seriously, from tho Brlnco of Wales to an American joke; bat a part of it is also duo to the fact that it is a nation of experts on for- «ign affairs.

[From a recent photograph.I land may be supposed to be a bettor judge of the probable influence of tho Japan-China war than we are. England looks upon it as the most, portentous and important event of modern history. Sir Edwin Arnold—who is no less a politician than a poet—knows more about it than any other Englishman. Hero is u part of what he said: ''Japan is one of my most enthusiastic loves. I have been there twice and both visits were long and pleasant, If I live I shall go again. I see tl.ic Japanese minister here every day, nnd I admire him. his land and its pco- plo even more heartily than 1 have ever said I did. "Japan's victory is tho greatest progression that the world has seen since the American colonies won their independence. For uncounted centuries an impassable boundary existed between the west and cast. England broko it down so that India was open; America, through Perry, broke it down so that Japan was open. Now Japan has broken it down so that China—greatest conquest of them all—is open. I do not mean by that that China will now or, perhaps, ever enter into the column of progressive nations. Japan will not go far enough in her victory to uproot tho present Chinese THE JAPANESE V. OMAX OF TO-DAV. tFrom Sir Edwin Arnold's Photo^raphlo Collection.] Eng- government—a government that has amateurs when compared to ilshmen. It is their specialty; it is not ours. Our state de- •oartment changes with ovory political reversal. AVith the coming of each aow president, a new secretary and a :aew force have to learn nnd unlearn all •iho things which their predecessors learned and unlearned only forty-eight short months before our diplomatic service changes its methods and its pcr- .aonnel ns quickly ns one of thc*e little brass-chained chameleons changed its whcr. i< crawltxl from the brown . been handed down with few changes since before the time of Christ. Japan knows too much for that. She understands the people with whom she has to deal. She realizes that they have been infected with a virus of stupidity and barbaric conservatism from which it is scarcely reasonable to hope to ever free them. Confucius was the man who killed China. His philosophy of fatalism has been nnd is the sleeping Aratight from whose effects she may never wake, China is liko the grub chosen by the They arc made by covering n.liner collar or cuff with " celluloid," and ar.-. the only waterproof goods made with an interlining, and the only goods that can stind the wear and give perfect silisfaction.

This bird injects u subtle poison into the worm she selects for her family's food, which paralyzes it and without killing it makes it like a dead thing. Confucius wa,s China's Iguna bird. Me introduced into her veins a poison which has made her comatose for many, many centuries. It is, in one sense, a dead thing which Japan has conquered, and it is doubtful if it will ever come to normal life. But it is a valuable corpse. "But Japan will be from now on tho great civilizing, regulating, dominating power of Asia. Without disrupting China, she will let the whole world reap tho advantage of her resources. She- will throw down the barriers which have closed her vast possessions to trade and commerce. She will introduce such modern methods as a.re possible into the interior which has been absolutely stationary for centuries. Tho day when lueifer matches and mills and railroads and other results of civilization can be shut out of one of the richest and broadest countries in the world, ended with the decisive battle .of the Japan-China war. "Japan is great morally and intellectually. She has her faults, but is any nation without them? Not long before 1 last left Japan Count Ito askod me what I would advise him to do in order to more rapidly and importantly develop his nation. I said: 'I would, if I were you, double my navy, increase my army, educate my women and ransack my country for iron, coal and copper!' "These things he has done and many others. What is the result? Japan has become one of the great facts of the universe. When people say to me that she may come to grief some day I laugh. I can see her future plainly, and I am sure my prophetic vision is not false, is not even exaggerated. She will be one of the world's greatest naval powers. She can build her own ships. She is building five now. She lacks iron, bat she does not lack brains. She can buy iron much easier than she could buy brains, and the margin of profit which she will have to pay will be smaller. I do not consider her shipyards to be competent to build battleships of the first class, but they can build splendid first and . second-class cruisers of the type of your Chicago with immense success. That is one way in which Japan -will make her influence felt on the world in the future as a great naval power, as the great naval power of the Pacific ocean. "Then comes her importance as a commercial nation. The victory of Japan over China may well make certain English and American industries tremble for the future. It means that from now on cheap labor—labor which is incredibly cheap to us—will be thrown into competition with high-priced labor. Tariff duties will not protect ns or you. Ko nation could protect itself by tariff against the attack which Japan can and will make in the near future, any more than it could protect itself by guns and forts against an invasion of the influenza epidemic. "Let your cotton growers look to their positions. Even England's Indian cotton will be hard pressed, and if the growers are in danger then the manufacturers are in greater danger. The capacity of the Japanese and the Chinese for incredible detail in their work makes them'the most perfect workmen in the world, as they are the most rapid. And when one realizes that this ability and capacity can be obtained there for an average of eight cents a day against from one dollar and a half upward in America and four shillings upward in England, it is .not hard to see that there is reason in what I say. I believe that "Japan will, ere long, play very hot' with Manchester, our great English cotton manufacturing center, and there are American cities which, while thej- may not feel the evil effects of this modern progression quickly, •will not feel them less seriously in the end. ''And cotton is only one of the industrial branches of which Japan is destined to become the queen. Ic silk iT and silk making and. the labor and resources of China which she will develop she will be supreme, and in an infinitely varied and infinitely numerous list of other industries in which cheap labor must be the chief element —such as match making—she will rule the world." After the knight had made these important predictions—and it is right to say that nearly the entire English press and most of the important English statesmen agree with him—he- went into an analysis of the Japanese, their religion, their customs, their women, their morals, their manners, that was fascinating in the extreme. It should be stated that, because of Sir Edwin Arnold's statement that what we consider immorality does not exist in Japan, although in almost every Japanese city a portion of the town is given over to the occupation of what we would call abandoned women, he bus been intenselj' criticised of late. He explained to me clearly what he meant. "A people must be judged," said he, by the same standards of right and wrong on which they act. Judged from the Japanese point of view, and from the Japanese religion—Buddhism —Japan is without vice. I can perhaps make my meaning clearer when 1 say that to me, a European, who has studied her, Japan seems to be the least immoral and the most unmoral country in the world. To me her women are pure, even though they are members of the elass which Europeans condemn; to mo her men are high-minded and unselfish." Sir Edwin lives modestly for a rich London notable, but there is no flat in New York so large as his. Its drawing- room is nearly one hundred feet long, and no apartment in all London witnesses more pleasant and generous hospital ity. lie is a cosmopolitan of cosmopolitans. As I was leaving, the author of "The Light of Asia" said, smilingly: "When you see New York again, give my earnest love to the Lotus dub.'

Shave these sticks to fit into the holes in the plank; and shave about 10 inches of the upper ends so they will fit tightly into a J^-inch hole. Now make two blocks of hard wood 4..V inches long and ~ inches square. Bore a Ji'-inch hole in each block near the end. Set the compass for a G-inch circle and mark off t\vo half circles on an inch board; then saw them out with a compass saw, and nail one of these circular pieces on each block, close to the end, as shown at A. These circular pieces should be 1 inch thick each way, and they should have about three small lathing-nails left sticking out % inch, to keep the bag from slipping oil. It is tho spring of the two long sticks that holds the bag tight* The blocks can be slipped up and down, for bags of different lengths.—Farm and Fireside. EXPERIMENTAL FARMS. njr Abont Thosr Conducted by tb« Cauadlan Government, For several years past the provinces and the federal government of Canada have been taking an active interest in the improvement of agricultural methods throughout tho provinces, and at present the equipments of their so- called "experimental farms" are very complete and efficient. The central experimental farm, situated near Ottawa, comprises some 500 acres of land and a complete outfit of building's and the necessary machinery. The buildings are especially fitted up for cattle, horses, piprs and poultry, and all of these are well stockr.d. There is a dairy equipped with the modern appliances for carrying 1 on experimental work. The farm includes a seed-testing and propagation house and a conservatory. JJesides this central station there are eleven experimental farms Htuatcd in other parts of Canada, and these carry on experiments in agriculture, horticulture and arboriculture with much profit. The several farms are situated so as to render them as helpful as possible to the most thickly- populated districts, and in their equipments and general methods they resemble closely the central station. The staff of workers at the central experimental farm includes a director, nn agriculturist, a horticulturist, a botanist, an entomologist and a chemist. There are also a poultry manager, a foreman of forestry and several assistants to assist the members of the staff. The work is varied in nature and has to do with practically everything' which refutes to farming in Canada. The adaptability and merits of various varieties of wheat are, for example, the subject of careful inquiry. Experiments are carried on to determine the vitality and purity of various agricultural seeds, and to investigate the nature of the diseases of plants and trees, and the cure for tho ravages of insects. Various varieties of fertilizer* are tested to determine their comparative value with different soils and crops. The study of the care 1 of animals is a very important interest, and the value of different breeds <Jf stock and their adaptability to various climates and other conditions are carefully investigated. These stations examine the scientific and economic sides of butter and cheese making. Experiments are carried on to determine the best methods of planting and pruning trees for fruit raising or for shelter or timber. The information gained in all this work is carefully recorded and published for general distribution.—Scientific American. HANDY BAG HOLDER. One of the Best Devices of It* Klnil Ever Invented.

FOR slow draught upon the farm, road or in the city, the walking- gait is the most important. THE English climate is said to be very trying to American-bred horses, giving them throat affections which impair their wind. Those that are taken over young seem to escape these troubles. AbsorpUvii l'o\vcr of Sollft. The greater prevalence of droughts as the country grows older is partly owing to the fact that soils long cultivated do not hold water as they do when full of vegetable matter. This is especially true where the soil is heavy and has at some time been worked,while wet. It often requires years of cultivation with winter freezing and thawing to fully break up the clods made by plowing when the ground is saturated with water. The plow presses particles of clay soil together instead of pulverizing them. If they are harrowed while wet tho clay sticks to the harrow and but little good is done. If the soil is undrained these clods will remain for years, as the saturated soil freezes solid at the surface and thus prevents the deep freezing needed for pulverization. Fall plowing is beneficial for land in this condition.—Rural World. The Spine is one of the most tender parts of the body. Inflammation there results in weak nerves everywhere.

If such a one exists either the house should be removed or the swamp should be drained. There are many places where the deepening of ditches already made is all that is needed to make dry land fit for cultivation of what has been an eyesore to the neighborhood. This making' of an outlet is much the most expensive part of the reclamation. It will improve tho neighboring upland also, for that equally needs under draining:, but cannot {jet it until a safe reliable outlet has been provided. All swampy lands have been for afres the deposits for vegetable mutter from uplands. So soon as the latter is under- drained the water falling on the upland sinks down to the tile and enriches tho soil, instead of washing away its fertility.—Rural \Yorld. REVIVO RESTORES VITALITY.
