p PEOPLE OF OUR TOWN '
SCREENED FROM VULGAR EYES
Only hrt Time A( the Japan
Emperor and His Hair Lived
There must be many Japanese Mill
living wh can remember when their
countrymen would hare regarded with
horror the manner in which the crown
prlnc allows himself to be gazed op
on by foreign crowds.
So late as 1807 no Japanese was
allowed to look upon the emperor, who
lived a life apart In the seclusion of
his palace. All that was seen of hlra
by those who waited on his command
was his back. When the rule was first
modified to the extent of his leaving
the palace, all shutters had to be put
np, all blinds drawn, and even the
crevices covered with paper, unl n
one was permitted in the streets.
Vast changes have taken plui.'e lnee
then, but even today It Is not consid
ered quite proper and respectful by the
masses of the people to look ut tlie
emperor or his heir when they drive
through the streets.

to have a garden of at least 000 square
