CHINESE COME TO CHICAGO
FOR BREWERY PLANS.
Chicago- With*Teutonic brew im
possible to get, Nipponese beers boy

with soft drinks, several thirsty but
wealthy Chinese have organized the
Wuish Brewing Company and com
missioned Richard Griesser, architect
and engineer of Chicago, to draw
plans for a $200,000 brewery. They
already have purchased all the brew
ing machinery and equipment of the
Gebhardt brewery at Morris, Illinois,
and are having it shipped to the Ori
The steel and cork insulation for
the three story fireproof plant also
have been ordered in this country, but
all the rest of the building materials
are being purchased in China and
Chinese labor will put up the build
ings. It-will, have annual rapacity to
start with of 1,200,000 bottles.
"Most of the trade will be with the
better cfass of Chinese", Said Mr. Gre
esser, "for the coolies don't know
much about foreiign beers. Two
young chinamen, educated in this
country, will have charge of the con
struction of the plant. It will be fin
ished next spring." .
And yet the Christian people of
America, who contribute millions
annually for foreign missionary en
terprises sit idly by and allow this

Must Not Disturb Swans.
Even the highest in the French Re
public must bow before the edicts of
the French protocol, as Mme. Des
chanel, wife of the president, learned
when she objected to the presence of
five white swans in the Elysee palace
ponds. The swans, Mme. Deschanel
admitted, were very beautiful, but
nearly every morning early they dis
turbed the rest of the president's
household, and therefore she Inquired
whether they could not be removed.
The chief of the protocol 'found that
sixty 3'ears ago a clause was written
In the protocol which provided that
not less than five swans must be kept
in the Elysee palace grounds, for the
feeding of which the keeper of the
presidential gardens was responsible.

The mother of Morton Dale entered
his office, peered into his private room,
found it vacant and turned her gaze
upon^iis st?nographe^ Irene Blandon,
with" some^wonderment. The latte?; ?
handkerchief to her eyes and sobbing
low, had not noticed ber appearance.
The sheet of paper on her typewriter
bore evidence of tears.
"Why, Miss Blandon !" spoke .the vis
itor gently, "whatever is the trouble?
You are crying."
Irene lifted a woeful face to the
lady. "I couldn't help it," she spoke.
"You must know how things are here
and I am so sorry for Mr. Dale."
"Perhaps I" do not entirely know J.
how things are here, dear," said Mrs."
Dale. "Of course Morton has told me
of his misfortune in trusting a client
with half his capital and the man in
vesting it unfortunately and no chance,
of recovering it. But Morton is young,
bright, and honorable, the world is all,
before him and it has greatly distress-??? ;
ed me to see how hard he has taken
"Mr. Dale was under a severe strain*
before that came," announced Irene.
"He put through a very creditable deal
and counted on expanding his busi
ness when this loss came along. Oh,
Mrs. Dale! can you not induce him tb
seek and find what alone can save
him-an entire abandonment of busi
ness cares for a spell? He is not ill,
but mentally depressed. He has lost
his nerve, as the men on 'change say,
and he gets gloomier and more dis
couraged every day. Perhaps you won
der at my feeling over him, but I came
to the city knowing nobody and if I
were his own sister he could not have .
been more kind and helpful to me.
Every time I write to the family at
home, I am sure they bless him for the
interest he has taken in me and the
good position he has given me."
"You are a sweeL dear girl," said
Mrs. Dale, her own eyes dimming.
"Tell me what you think we had ought
to do to win him from his apathy and
"He must give up business for a
time, that is sure," answered sensible,
practical Irene. He has a fine, sensi
tive nature and he is getting thin and
tired all of the time. He needs build
ing up, and oh! if he would only con
sent to do down to Waltham, where I
came from, and let mother and the
folks look after him and think of noth
ing but rest and recreation, he would
surely come back with renewed health

agreed to .them, I though'-^ith little ih
.terest in' them, it seemed, and one day
left for a month's vacation at Holly
wood farm. It was not Until he got
away from the turmoil and grime bf
the city and the train glided along
past fresh vernal scenes and the flow
er perfumed air came in revivingly at
the open car window, that his perturb
ed mind began to calm down. In a
gentle, politic way those two loving
plotters had spent a week in winning
him to their suggestion. Now, feeling
how reliably Irene would attend to his
Interests and recalling that she was
sacrificing her own vacation visit to
the folks nt home for his sake, a ten
der gratitude expanded his soul, tem
porarily clouded by his own selfish and
"She is like my mother-all gold!"
Morton told himself, and when he ar
rived at Waltham he soon decided that
there were others, too, of the home
spun, but heartsome Blandon family
who were eligibles to be quoted in the
same precious metal category.
Irene's two sisters were in evidence
occupying a seat in the.' roomy old
sitting room, pictures of health and
jolliness. The brother, a big-hearted
fellow, always Joking and laughing,
hailed Morton as a bosom friend.
When they reached the pleasnnt old
fashioned farmhouse Mrs. Blandon
welcomed their guest as an own son.
The guest partook of the most enjoy
able meal of weeks and slept with a
smile on his lips, as through his
dreaming fancies ran shadowy echoes
of some Joke Wilfred Blandon nar
rated, or a fugitive thought of the
brave little helper he had left in
charge of his business craft came to
Bluff, hearty Wilfred put himself,
out to bring a more cheerful state of
feeling to the invalid, and was abet
ted by trusty accomplices. He even
had the scale at the general store man
ipulated, so that whenever Morton
came in to get weighed he was found
to be gaining nearly a pound daily! , j
One day some ruffians attacked a I
farmer on his way home with consid- I
erabie money. Morton dispersed them,
in a way that won from the rescued\
victim admiring commendation for his
spryness and strength.
At the end ot Tluonth, completely
renovated, Morton Dale came home,
the picture of Jolly good health. He.
listened with glowing eyes.as his moth- .
er recited how Irene had not only
cared for the old ^business, but had
secured considerable new, and through
her labors there was a hope of getting
back some of the lost capital.
"I can never repay all she has done
for me," spoke Morton gratefully.,
"Why has she taken such an interest'
in my affairs, mother?"
"Why?" replied Min. Dale promptly.
"Ask her, Morton, and she will blush,
and blushes mean love, you know."
"Then I shall try the experiment at
race!'* cried Morton hopefully.
I desire to inform my friends and the people generally

CLOTHING, SHOES, HATS, DRY GOODS, NOTIONS

Because of the short crop and low prices

it was very necessary that;we have another
gin. So help me with your patronage and
you can rest assured that it will be ap
