As for the people, I am And always shall be of good St. Francis Xavier's feeling, "This nation irthe delight of my Boul." Never have I passed days more happy, tranquil or restorative than among Japanese of all classes in the cities, towns and villages of Japan. Possibly that is because I have had no business relations with my kind and pleasant Niponese friends, and have never talked very much metaphysics; but it seems certainly an easy way to keep on the right side of folks to let philosophy and theology alone. Moreover it is, no doubt, necessary for such experiences to go a little behind that sort of Japan which you find on the Hatobas of Yokohama or Kobe, in the Yoshiwaras of those and the other open ports. At very little distance from the surface, which we civilizing westerners have done our best to spoil, will be still discovered the old, changeless, high tempered, generous, simple and sweet mannered Japan of old. I frankly confess it has entirely charmed me; and therefore what I say of this Japanese nation, and their manners and customs, must be received with the proper caution attaching to the language of a friend, and even a lover. But where else in the world does there exist such a conspiracy to be agreeable; such a widespread compact to render the difficult affairs of life as smooth and graceful as circumstances admit; such fair decrees of fine behavior fixed and accepted for all; such universal restraint of the coarser impulses of speech and act. such pretty picturesqueness of daily existence; such lively love of nature as the embellisher of that existence; such sincere delight in beautiful artistic things; stiCh frank enjoyment of the enjoyable; such tenderness to little children; such reverence for parents and old persons; such widespread refinement of taste and habits; such coiirtesy to strangers; such willingness to please and to be pleased.—Sir Edwin Arnold in Scribner's.

Skillful stone carvers—not sculptors, bat the men who actually cat the figures and decorations on the facades or interiors of buildings with mallet and chisel— often receive from four to six dollars a day in New York and Boston. Modelers for jewelers and makers of designs for wall paper often receive more than that. In Boston and New Yonk good stone carvers receive higher pay than reporters on newspapers, clerks in business houses or male school teachers of the lower grades. But who are these skilled stone parvers and wood carvers, makers of designs for wall paper, modelers in clay, brass finishers and so on? They are, with some exceptions, Europeans. They have learned how to do their work in other countries, and come here to exercise their crafts. Formerly these more artistic trades could not be learned in the United States. This is no longer the case. The industries have been established in this country to such an extent that nearly all of them may be learned by the process of apprenticeship and in the technical schools scattered through the country almost every branch of industrial art is taught. But when one day I asked a large employer of skilled stone carvers how many of his men were American born he answered, "Not one in ten is American born."—J. E. Chamberlin in Youth's Companion.
