In the Second Precinct of the Fourth
District the struggle has resolved Itself
into the selection of twenty-eight out
of some fifty odd good men. A wing ot
tho party has declared against the pre
cinct program which they are pleased
to term a "slate," In view of the fact
that the precinct executive commit

any who wished to make tbe fight for

misnomer. It is at least gratifying
In Japan, the entrance to the most
beautiful homes is usually unattractive.
If there Is a front yard, a high wall on
the street simply suggests that there
must be something bevond worthy of
being thus protected, and usually tho
yard Is small, containing little shrub
bery nnd no grass. Often, the house
opens directly on the street, with 4
front of plaster or adobe pcrfoiated
with ono or two small windows barred
with bamboo or heavier gratings, or
sometimes the whole front Is only slid
ing screens. There are no different
types of architecture In Japan. The
entrance to the house Is Invarlrhly at
the corner. Just inside the entrance,
you step up on to a soft-matted floor
about two feet high, leaving clogs, san
dals or, shoes on the steps below. Tho
floor of tho room Is entirely covered
with rectangular mats, three by six
feet in size.
Tho nrchltect plans the size of his
rooms to accommodate a certain num
ber of mats, and the size of a house or
a room Is always given as so many
mats Instead of so many feet. Small,
square, thin cushions relievo the dis
comfort of sitting on the mats, and In
recent cars, when, in public school:,
and Government offices, chairs and
desks are being universally used, oua
often finds In the houses of the better
classes one room, at least, furnished
with a center-table and chairs. Other
wise, a low writing table, and perhaps
a small stand, for a vase of flowers
or a plant, und a panel plcturo or poem
are the only furniture a simplicity
which often to the eyo of the Occidental
traveler contrasts pleasantly with the
crowded parlors and reception rooms of
this native land.
Somewhere on the premises of every
bouso among the well-to-do people, Is
a storehouse In which tbe family treas
ures are kept, those needed for uso or
decoration being brought out as occa
sion may require. In the morning the

but It he makes it his home, ho misses
his bed and his easy chair and the quiet
and privacy, which to the Japanese oc
cupant aro not so essential.
On his first visit to a foreigner's
house, a Japanese gentlemen once said
to me, "It seems very strange to us to
think of having to hang yourself on a
chair when vou want to sit down, or of
laying vourself on a Bhelf when you
want to lie down, but I suppose It seemn
just as strange to you to lie down at
night where you have been walking
and sitting ull day."
Coming to Hawaii, the Japanese have
thus far, I believe, rarely built their
own houses. Most of them have not
tome to stay; and they live In such
houses as are provided for them, or as
they can afford to rent. Many arc In

doubtless partially due to the use of

iE all can recall instances where a man or woman
has fallen from seeming health and strength
in a single night into sickness or even death.
" How very sudden," people said. But if
they could see back a few years, they would
note the slow process of undermining of the
great organs, that preceded the tan. ine
blood is tainted, the heart weakens, the liver enlarges or
hardens, the kidneys are overtasked. Some day, under
the combined pressure, the body breaks down suddenly."
But this undermining process does not go on without
warning. There is friction in the machinery of the body.
The heart is irregular In Its action. The liver fails of its
duty. The kidneys show their condition In the tainted
current that flows by them. The stomach breaks down.
The appetite fails. There is shortness of breath, dizzi
ness, sleeplessness, foul mouth, and bad taste. These
symptoms are some of the signs of the undermining of
the health. You can stop this undermining of your health
and life by using Klckapoo Indian Sagwa.
It searches out the weak places in the system. It gives
strength where strength Is needed. It does this because
It restores the natural vitality of weak and enfeebled
organs. It drives out obstructions, purifies the blood,
and brings about a harmonious action of the chief organs
of the body. Klckapoo Indian Sagwa is sold under a
guarantee. Your money refunded if it does not fulfill
every claim. Isn't this offer fair ? At all druggists.
