THE OPEN DOOK IN CHINA.
Noyotiations aro Pendina Between thc Powers.
Treaty Under Consideration.
LONDON, Novcmbor 25.-As a result
of tho United States, request to tho Pow
ers for assurances regarding tho main
tenance of tho "open door" in China tho
Associated Press is able to say that nego
tiations have been entered into looking
to a more permanent and important in
ternational agreement than yot mooted.
Though tho greatest ollicial reticence is
observed at all tho capitals regarding
this secret movement, Ibero is good
ground for believing that tho negotia
tions have roached a hopeful stage. Ac
cording to reports current boro, in con
sequence of Russia an<l Prance failing
to reply satisfactorily to Washington's
request, tho Hinted States decided to
take up tho Chinese question still more
vigorously. Tho co-operation of Great
Britain to this end, it is asserted, was
secured, and upon tho initiative of thc
United States, efforts were set on foot to
secure not only assurances to tho United
States, but a definite agreement ho
tweon tho F.uropean Powers themselves.
Such an understanding to ibo average
European statesman has long Roomed
Utopian, yet to-day tho Associated Press
is informed oil good authority thero aro
fair chances of Croat Britain, Russia,
Germany and Japan, in conjunction with
tho United States, becoming signatories
to a treaty delineating tho spheres of
political influence in China and de
termining their fiscal policy in that
quarter of tho globe, based on tho "open
(loor" principios. Such is tho scope of
...tho ncgotipMons. Tho piojeetcd ar
rangement may ho retroactive as regards
territory; in other words, districts now
controlled, for instance, by Russia, may
change hands in return for other privi
leges. Franco apparently has exhibited
the greatest opposition to this plan so
far, hut assurances have 'icen received
from Russia, and her apparent willing
ness to entor into an agi cement with the
United States as the leading factor lias
given riso to tho bcliof that France is
not necessarily a stumbling block, for
if Russia colored into tho agreement
Franco, it is asserted, is almost hound
to follow, or louder herself powerless

tho United States, Croat Britain and
Japan have already arrived at a por feet

A Washington dispatch says that last j

ten tons of rico seed of tho liest quality
grown in that country, which is supposed
to bo the finest in tho world. 'Phis seed

When a Girl Should Marry.
A girl should marry when she
feels capable of understanding and
fulfilling tho duties of n true wife
and thorough housekeeper, and nover
before. No matter how old she may
be, if she is not capable of manag
ing a house in every department of
it she is not old enough to get mar
ried When she promises lo take the
position of wife and homemaker,
the man who holds her promise has
every right to suppose that she knows
herself competent to f til fi 11 it. if
she proves to bo incompetent or
unwilling, he has good reason to
consider himself cheated. No matter
how plain the homo may ho, if it is
in accordance with the husband's
means, and ho linds it neatly kept
and the meals (no matter how sim
ple) served from shining dishes and
clean table linen, that husband will
leave home with loving words and
thoughts and look ahead with eager
ness to tho time when he can return.
Let ii girl play the piano and ac
quire every accomplishment within
her power-tho more the better
for every one will bo that much
j:\ore power to he used in making a
h ippy home. At tho same time, if
she can't go into the kitchen, if nec
essary, and cheerfully prepare just
as good a meal as any one could with
the same material, and serve it neatly
after it is prepared, she would bettor
defer her marriage until she learns.
If girls would thoroughly lit them
selves for the position of intelligent
housekeepers before they marry
there would bo fewer discontented,

An Oconooan in a Tight Placo Near tho
Thia Greenville News, of Novem
ber 'i6, says :
.1. N\ King, tho big, jolly, woll
kuown contractor, had a good story
to tell on himsoH' nt the Windsor
Hotel yesterday of how lio was
"reftily and truly good and bad
seared" last spring. Ho consented
to tell tho story to a reporter, pro
vided tho names of tho other inter
ested persons bo not published, as ho
had "promised thom to? keep the
thing out of thc newspapers."
"You seo it happened this way,"
began Mr. King, lighting a fresh
cigar. "Last May, as I was driving
alone through the country to West
minster in my buggy, I met a good
looking young woman, who appeared
to be completely fagged out after a
long walk. Sho was accompanied
by a little hoy. She asked mo tho
way to Westminster. I not only
told lier, but invited her and tho boy
up to seats hy me in tho buggy. I
questioned her as to who ?ho was
and why she was out so late, but she
gave me only monosyllabic answers
and they were unsatisfactory. I saw
that something was up and I made
up my mind to let her out of the
buggy before I got into town.
"Presently I heard a horseman hit
tho steel bridge, just behind us. Ho
cleared it in about three jumps. I
turned und saw that tho rider was
oontlcss and that he carried a double
barrelled shot gun on his shoulder
and was wearing a plow linc like a
marshal's sash. It was beginning to
get dark then, and I paid no particu
lar attention to the horseman, and
he did not at first recognize us. But
just as bc passed tho buggy, the lit
tle hoy said :
" Mamma, there's papa.'
"Then it was that 1 saw what was
up, and I trembled.
"The horseman wheeled about on
me at thc sound of tho boy's voice,
and, leveling his gun at me, said :
"?Oh, yes; you-, you.
It's you that's running away with my
wife, is it? I'll just shoot your C4
d-'ii heart out right here.'
"I was trembling visibly then. A
second inore and I would have hoon
killed ; and, oh my, such a sensation
as would have been published in the
papers about my hoing killed while
running away with another man's
wife. Thc true condition would
never have been known.
"Hut in the crisis that little frail
woman saved my life. Just as tho
husband spoke she jumped from the
buggy and said to him :
" 'Herc. If you arc going to kill
anybody, kill nie. That gentleman
there knows nothing about mo; lie
simply picked mo up awhile ago in
the road and offered mo a ride be
. cause he saw that I was tired and
"I got out of the buggy," con
tinued Mr. King, now pulling vigor
ously at his oigar, 'and edged around'
until I got my horse between mc and
the man with the gun.
"Then the husband began to swear
at tho woman, who had refused to
go back with him. He told her
that if she did not go peaceably be
would carry her forcibly, dragging
her by the neck to the end of his
plow line at his horse's heels.
"I said be would do nothing of
the kind, but 1 guess I did not say
it with much spirit, because I was
still looking at that shotgun.
"When I spoke tho fellow turned
on mo and asked mo what in thc
bel! I had to do with it and said he
would kill us both.
