DETERMINED TO TAKE CHANCr
Man of Toll Decided to Hold on to H.
Thero woro two politicians occup
Ing the same seat In the smoking r
and talking together, and In the s
ahead was a farmer. Presently on
of the men said:
"Don't you think China Is the slov
and old-fashioned country the iiowe
papVs speak of. She Is having ho
amiss off 'ed by the best nillltn;-'
talent In t' world, and she Is armln
with the k .est muskets and artllW;.
I tell you, sho will bo heard iron
within nnother decade."
M "Do you think sho will bring on an
other war?" was asked.
"I have no doubt of It. Yes, sir, i
expect to seo a war between China
and Russia within another decade."
V- "So you think another war Is bounc
to come, do you?" asked the farmer
as ho turned around.
"I huven't tho slightest doubt of It
"And will It affect us?"
"It is certain to, moro or less."
Tho man of toil turned back and
thought things over for a few minutes
and then wheeled to say:
j "Well I think I'll tako my chances
I am In tho pickle business. Pickles
ought to bo worth $3 a bar'l, but they
are selling for 25 cents less. I guess
I'll hang on, war or no war, 'till they
come up to my finger. Hum a man

SHIELDS FOR TROOPS IN WAX
Their Use Urged by a German Mili
A writer in the Mllitar-Wochenblatt
raises anew tho question of tho use
of portable shields for tho protection
of infantry in tho attack, say:i tho
Broad Arrow. He writes approvingly
of tho Japanese spado work in tho
offensive, the moro so because ho
mentions Incidentally, as a matter re
garding which there can be no dis
pute, that the (Jorman authorities
have long since advocated tho use of
artificial cover in the attack, and
points out that when tho ground was
frozen or rocky, and tho spado could
make no Impression upon It, tho at
tacking Japanese Infantry not Infre
quently went forward, carrying with
them filled sandbags weighing as
much as forty pounds. He remarks
that If tho undoubtedly brave Japa
neso soldier found It necessarj to
load himself with so bulky and bur
densome a protection when advancing
in tho open against an Intrenched en
emy It would seem far better to equip
tho infantry with a light, handy shield.
Furnished with a handle by which
to carry It, a loophole to flro through
and some arrangement to prevent Its
fn.ling down, the infantryman would
then And himself, like his gunner
comrade, protected by a bullet-proof
shield. The writer In the Wochenblatt
suggests that on the march tho shield
should bo carried on the back, when
going Into action on the chest, and
when advancing to the attack in the
left hand, so as to he at once available
for use when lying down to fire, both
as head cover and rifle rest.
Castro and the Attache.
A Venezuelan military attacho at
Paris had turned In a report upon tho
French army. He praised Its organi

model for Imitation by Venezuela.
Castro sent for tho luckless ofllcer.
"You wrote this report glorifying

"Yes, excellency. It was a part of

"Yes; It was defeated by tho Ger

"And did tho English never get tho

English and Germans combined? Was
It not I, CIprlano Castro? You may
