"I never have tho faintest idea what date it Is,"
"1, either," chorused the others.
"The only date I knov,,J said one meditatively, "is tho first of the
month, when the bills begin to come in. You always know tho first of tho
month around our house."
"Then again," said the Man, "why can't a woman either number her
pages when writing a letter, or else write straight ahead? Luckily, you
can tell the first page. But you wouldn't bo able to pick that out If she
didn't have to begin with some form of salutation. But after that you'ro
gone. You turn the letter over, and backward and forward, and upside
down, and slantwise; but where to continue after tho first page Is as
problematical as aro there canals on Mars. If thcro 1b any connection in
the thought which usually there isn't you can make a stab at it, and
maybe get, only two pages off. But usually you must Just read It straight
ahead, and then piece It together afterward in your mind.
"Onco unon n time you read the first page, then the third, then tho
second and lastly the fourth. Just as 1 about got on to that order of pro
cedure tho wind changed; and, after beating about for quito awhile, I dis
covered the course ought to be first page, la'st page, then inside page across.
1 don't know what's brewing now. But I feel a change is coming. When-
ever I seo a man hunting around a letter, turning it over, and reading
first here, and then there, I know what he is up against. Now, why do
women do it?"
The tea-table was silent.
"It seems so terrible prim," at last ventured one, "to write on the
first naco and then on the second, and so on. I think women hate to be
really methodical. In some things they have to be; so when they get a
chance, even In a little thing, to be absolutely free, they delight In belrfg
as whimsical as possible."
"I think It is more convenient," said another, "to write on the first
page and then on tho last, and then across inside, than to be turning pages
all the time."
"If they would only stick to that plan," said the Man, "It wouldn't
' ''But It is so monotonous to do n thing always one way," suggested a
"third. "Women like a change."
"You bet they do," said a man joining the group, "change of air,
change -of scenery, change of husbands."
"And change In their purse," interjected tho woman who had spoken
, .about bills and the first of tho month. f

We have In them tho men who will
reorganize our army and navy. In
fact we have a very strong army who
havo gained their experience during
tho revolution. We also expect to
have a strong navy. These aro not
for offensive purposes but for tho
protection of our own Interests. Prep
aration for war means no war.
Wo have In them men who will
develop our foreign trade, men who
will build our own railways. In fact
wo havo had railways built by
Chinese with Chlneso capital and
without foreign assistance. We will
ment throughout the country.
Wo have immense natural re
sources. Our mines wait to bo
opened. ( Wo have the cheapest labor
in the world and this will certainly
help to develop the country. We havo
Iron works In China already, which
supply Iron for the requirement of
Asia and America. We are making
largo shipments of pig Iron tt Japan
and tho iron works in America. Our
coal goes as far as Australia, and
with a good government these and
other Industries will further develop.
Our future Is brilliant, hut we cannot
hope to attain to tho fullest our de
sire for tho sood of the country un
less our o'.mi .jffalrs are conducted by
our own people, and they are now.
We like to have dealings- with for
eigners. We desiro their friendship.
It is not truo that the Chinese are
anti-foreign. It has only been when
the foreigners acted to-the detriment
of our Interests that we havo re
sented their action. I believe, Jrow
cver, that this is due to misunder
standing and that . such misunder
standing will bo removed when tho
( Chlneso and foreigners como Into
contact more and know each other
j The Chinese do not want to see
war on the Asiatic contlnont. Thoy
want peace. But if the foreigner
nttempts aggression they will seo
that it is stopped. It is foolish to talk
of tho Yellow Peril. We are too busy
with our own affairs at home to think
of meddling with outside affairs.
