I had been, reading and asked 4f I was
a Christian Scientist Then he sat
down on the edge of the bed and be
gan to read another little book, a sort
of New Thought book.
"He read several pages and kept
talking to me in the meantime. His
partner, who was keeping guard in
the hall, became very impatient be
cause we were chatting and urged
the burglar to hurry up and burgle.
I asked him, the gentleman, to not
scare my father, and he said he
wouldn't scare him any more than he
had to. Then I told him not to go to
my brothers' rooms because they
would be sure to start a fight.
" Now, dont worry about me,' he
Bald, Tve had considerable experi
ence in this business and Tax sure I
can present terras to your brothers
which they wOl be glad to accept.'
"I asked him what made him be
come a burglar. Ton know it isn't
honest,' I said. My dear girl,' he
replied, there are many things In this

Reese's daughter, Edna, is of a lit
erary bent She is a playwright She
had such a pleasant little visit with

THE JAPS' LOWEST1MATE.OF WOMEN
"The fact is of interest that every appeal to race hatred which is used
by the California demagogues against the Japanese has been used in turn
against the Irish, the Germans, the Swedes: and Norwegians, the Jews, the'
Italians and the French Canadians."
The foregoing rank falsification from the editor df the New York
World well illustrates how little people in the far east-know about the Jap
question and how willing they are to cover up their Ignorance with down
No Californian, demagogue or sincere patriot has used against Irish, s
German, Swede, Jew, Italian or French immigrant the unmentionable ob
jection that is justifiably used against the Jap, and it is an objection based
on race hatred.
The Japanese as a race have a low estimate of women as a created
being and as to the purpose of her creation-and the "uses to which she
should be put And Cakfornians refuse to put their wives and daughters
within the influence or effect of that low estimate. Save as to orientals
and blacks, there is no state in the union where there is less demarkation
df nationality than in California. The intermingling, socially and commer
cially, and the inter-marrying of Americans and Irish, Jews Italians and
French strikes every one who at all studies the conditions in'California.

who, at home and in California, complacently regards all feminity, from one
year to one hundred years of age, as natural accessory to-hia vileness.
