A strangely sttired Belgian priest arrived
on the la.t? steamer frgnj .CJjina. He h Key.
Father Gunflv, president of,tbe Ron)(ri'Ciitfv'
lie missions n Mongolia, where haJiasf been
arduously laboring for ten years past. He is
a man of about 40 3'ears of age, with a full
flowing beard and a rich silken gown of an
Oriental design. Other mat fcs of dress be
tokened him a resident of a land most remote
from ours. A repoi ter sought an interview
with h:m. He said;
"My life -work has been with the Tartars
who inhabit Mongolia, and the scenes of my
work have been clo by the great wall of
China. The commercial emporium of Mon
golia is Kalgan, a town of 40,000 inhabitants.
It is here tha the Russians come to buy
chamois skins and tea, which the Chinese
residents of 3Iongolia raio in immenstjuan
tities. The Mongolians themselves despise
tilling the ground, and as the land belongs to
the different tribes their chiefs have been
selling it oft to the Chinese.
"The I.-mgolinns are descendants of the
old Tartars, and raise tens of thousands of
cattle and horses. Beyond this they do noth
ing except huut. They aro a wild, ungovern
able race, living in tents. They ai o magnifi
cent horsemen, something like your wild In
dians. Their religion is Tartaric Buddhism.
One of their sacred temples is at Kunbun. In
Thibet is the great temple of U Lassa, con
structed after the manner of an Indian
Buddhist temple. Only one or two Euio
jjeaiw have ever been admitted within its
sacred precincts. They think the mero ad
mission of a foreigner within its portals
would forever defile it.
THE KUsSlAX IJ-VASIOX.
"The Russians, wno tried to invado this
country three years ago, hare relinquished
then- effort. They got two consulates estab
lished on the Mongolian coast, and they havo
had to givo way. They now have open ports
as far as Poking, but no fnrther. All the
talk you hear of invasions from the Russians
now goes for nothing. Mongolia is under
the domain of China.
"The country is largely a desert, although
with water it is exceedingly productive.
There nre very rich mines of copper and sil
ver as well as magnificent beds of coal. Mon
golia is colder than China, and consequcncly
the inhabitants, although dress...g somew hat
like the Chinese, put on moro clothes They
are unlike the Ch.ine.-e entirely otherwi-,
being more aggressive and warlike. They
ire not a tractable race by any means.
"Hunting the chamois is great, sport with
the Mongolians. They aro skilled horsemen
and dead shots with their weapons, a variety
of which they use. They aro also skillful
w ith the dart.
"In the ten yeai s that I have been ihera
we have succeeded in com oiling about 25,000
of tht&o wild Tartars. Though wild thoy are
open to civilizing and humanizing influences;
but there are so mam- of them, and their
country is so largo, that it takes a long while
to make much effect upon them as a mass."'
Thoreveiend gentleman is going homo to
Belgium. He is accompanied by a wealthy
resident of Brussels, Viscount de Benghem,
who, from March to July last, has been mak
ing a tour of certain parts of Mongolia and
studying up the habits of the natives. San

A report, baser! upon an inspection ot
1,214 factories in 125 different branches of
work in Russia, states that the hours of
labor there varj from six to twenty, and
that in one or two special instances work
men were compelled to labor twenty-four
hours uninterruptedly. , These differences
aro purely arbitrary and not controlled by
the kind of the work. In the same dis
trict in the samo sort .of work there is
bometimes a difference of eleven hours in
the amount of work required in a day in
the different factories. New York Sun.

Tlie 7eanin:r of a "IJoom."
Do not listen to the man who proposes
to "boom" your business. An excessive
"boom" means working at high pressure.
The "margin"' or "factor" of safety be
comes too small to withstand the strain
and your "boom" lx:comcs a burt bub
ble. On the other hand, should the boom
be carried out. n reaction i sure to follow.
The higher the "boom" the lower tlie
"doom'' will be to which your business i
descends. "Booming" may well be com
pared with alcoholic stimulating. The
latter v ill make things hum for a. time,
but the reaction surely comes, and things
nro equalized to a dead lsel. Then and
there are tlie "boomed" and the stimu- !
lated found wanting. "Force business with

enough, but it will surely reach the mark

Food of tlie Canary Islander-.
The splendid physical development of
the Canary Islanders gives special interest
to their peculiar food. Five-sixths of the
inhabitants, according to Dr. C. F. Tnylor,
subsist almost exclusively upon a fine
fiour made hy grinding roasted wheat,
corn or barley. This is called goflo. j
Beins: already cooked, it requires no pre- j
proration for eating except mixing to any i
desired consistency -vitn mil'c, soup or any
suitable fluid. Gofia is delicious, whole
some, highly nutritious mid very con
v enient to use. For these reasons and
the important one that it cecms to remove
a tendency to acidity of the stomach, Dr. -r-r j. " i rj. j. - . m i j -n
