PROTECT your BOOKS!
They're too valuable to be strewn about the room or house ex
posed to dust and damage! Of course you can't help it, if your
book-case is full and of the old style solid construction. Better
get rid of such a case, or start a new one that will always accom
modate your books without being either too large or too small ?
one that grows with your library and always fits it. The
is the original, and only up-to-date sectional book-case and is
made by the largest manufacturers of such goods in the world.
It's furnished in a variety of
grades, sizes and prices,
adapted to any and all re
quirements. It's a system of
units, each unit fitted with the
perfection dust-proof roller
bearing door. But we'll be
glad to show them if you call,
or will send beautifully illus
trated catalogue on request.

Agitation on the Pacific Coast
to Restrict Immigration.
CRY "YELLOW -PERIL"
' Number Has Increased From 86 in
Census Of 1880 to 35,000 at Pres
ent Time?No More Desirable as
Neighbors Than Chinese?Japan
ese Intolerant of the Whites.
The adoption by the California Leg
islature of a concurrent resolution op
posing the further unrestricted immi
gration of the Japanese, and calling
npon the national government for pro
tection by treaty or otherwise, is the
outcome of an agitation begun by the
"The Japanese problem," says the
"Chronicle," "is no longer to be ig
nored. It has been but lightly touch
ed upon heretofore; now it is pressing
upon California and upon the entire
United States as heavily and contains i
as much of menace as the matter of
Chinese immigration ever did, if, in
deed, it is not more serious, socially,
industrially, and from an international
standpoint. It demands consideration.
This article shows that since 18S0,
when the census noted a Japanese
population in California of only 86,
not less than 35,000 of the little brown
men have come to this State and re
mained here. At the present day the
number of Japanese in the United
States is very conservatively estimat
ed at 100,000. Immigration is increas
ing steadily, and, as in the case of the
Chinese, it is the worst she has that
Japan sends us. The Japanese is no
more assimilable than the Chinese,
and he is no less adaptable in learn
ing quickly how to do the white man's
work and how to get the job for him
self by offering his labor for less than
a white man can live on.
"Japan is intensely intolerant of}
the white man who visits her in any
other capacity than that of the curio
buying traveler. Industrially she has
neither room nor welcome for the for
eign devil from this side of the Paci
fic. It would seem to be about time
for us to take a leaf out of the Jap
anese code of self-protective patriot
"California has a population of a
million and a half people. The popu
lation of all the Pacific coast States
is, comparatively speaking, insignifi
cant. We shall not be able at the
present time to impose our beliefs
about Japane.-e exclusion upon the
people of the nation?eighty millions
of them?who have been carefully
educated to believe the Jap a charm
ing little hero. We do not say this
in discouragement of those who desire
a restriction of Japanese immigration.
Far from it. Let tnem by no means
halt in the work of arousing public
sentiment. But, on the other hand, it
is foolish not to recognize what the
facts of the matter are. It is absurd
to go into the fight blindly ignorant of
the nature and extent of the pro
Japanese sentiment that is to be over
"We all know that the ordinary Jap
is a neat, clean, personally pleasing
little fellow. We don't want to ex
clude him because he is immoral or
because he sells his labor (since it is
more convenient) through a contrac
tor. The reason we must exclude him
is in order to preserve intact our Oc
cidental civilization. The Jap may be
our moral superior. In manners he
may excel us. His philosophy of life
may be a better one than ours. Yet,
since self-preservation is the first
law of nature, we are impelled by that
immutable law to preserve our in
"It matters not. if the Jap were an
angel of light?if he could live cheap
er and did not racially assimilate, he
would have to go. As a matter of
fact, the Jap, while personally far
more pleasing that the Chinese, is
tricky, dishonest, a liar, and unreli
able, whereas the Chinese is usually
honest, truthful, and dependable. But
that has little to do with the case.
What we must base all arguments
upon is the great and eternal truth
that two races, unassimilable. cannot
occupy the same land together in
"We have expressed the opinion
that no exclusion law is possible.
There is, however, a possible solution
of the problem without it. It may
very likely happen that the Japanese
Government itself, cognizant of the
growing agitation in this coast, and
undesirous of sacrificing the friend
ship of America for the slight national
advantage to be pained by unrestrict
ed emigration, will put a check upon
emigration of Japanese for a few
years, at least, until the Japanese peo
ple recover fully from the drain of the
present war and are in a position to
take a strong attitude toward this
country. Then, indeed, we shall have
a problem."?New York Mail.
Alphabet for all the World.
A movement is on foot for the call
ing of an international conference on
the adoption of a universal phonetic
alphabet. It is suggested that the
Roman alphabet should serve as a
basis, but that slight modifications
be made in the forms of the letters,
which would not interfere with their
legibility to any one familiar with
them in their present shapes, it: order
to indicate the precise sounds for
which they stand. Such an alphabet
it is maintained, would enable any
one to pronounce correct^ at a
glace the words id' a foreign language,
because the spelling, apart from a
few special sound.-, would be the same
as in his own language. There is
said to be no language so hindered
by its spelling as the bhiglish.?

AN ICELESS ICE BOX.
Colder, Cleaner, Cheaper and More
Convenient Than Ice.
The icelcss refrigerator, which is
the very latest refinement of the elec
trical industry, threatens to dethrone
the ice man so effectually that it may
be but a short time before his shining
morning lace will no longer be seen
at the back door. The iceless refrig
erator has been perfected for the pur
poses of the butcher, storekeeper,
soda water fountain and the larger
household, and it has a great variety
of redeeming features to recommend
it. It is colder than ice, cleaner than
ice, cheaper than ice and more con
venient than ice. Those who have
made use of the new apparatus .,ay
that any one of these advantages is
sufficient to warrant its introduction,
but in the aggregate they are simply
In a few words, this improvement
consists of a complete cold storage
plant in miniature, tucked away with
in the confines of afrefrigerator of or
dinary size. This aoes not mean the
small ice box at present, but it is only
a matter of a short time before this
will be arrived at. The motor, com
pressor and other necesary apparatus
are disposed of in a compartment
at one end of the box. The space
usually taken up by the ice is oc
cupied by a tank of brine, by means
of which the atmosphere of the in
terior is cooled. The motor operating
the cooling plant is in action' only
a portion of the time, during which
period the brine becomes so chilled
that it is entirely sufficient to main
tain a proper temperature for some
considerable additional period of time.
For instance, in the equipment
which was experimentally installed
in a grocery store for me purpose
of ascertaining how it met the con
ditions of the establishment in actual
use, the motor is rim only during the
eight hours of business. Although
the refrigerator is being constantly
visited by the employed during that
time, the temperature is always sev
eral degrees lower than has ever been
obtained with the use of ice.. This
has been demonstrated by actual
tests. The same tests have also
shown that the operative costs are
lower than the ice bill and the sani
tary condition of the interior is far
superior to that of former times when
it was charged, daily with blocks ol
ice, but apart from all of these, the
grocery man says he is more than re
paid in his emancipation from the
bother and confusion of the iceman's
daily visit to his store. A soda water
fountain cooled by much the same ap
paratus has demonstrated the econo
my and cleanliness of electric refrig
eration for this purpose.
While the principal is not a new
one there have always been obstacles
which seemed insurmountable in the
way of the small isolated refrigera
tion plant. But these have now been
successfully overcome. ? Brooklyn
"The Bushido"' in Japan.
"The Bushido" means "the mortal
doctrines of the Samurai," and they
are obeyed by all the statesmen, sol
diers and scholars of the present time
with as much holy respect as the
Christian's reverence for the Bible
and its teachings. In Japan Buddhism
is the popular religion, but Buddhist
teachings are not respected by educat
ed men or soldiers. In fact, most of
them are atheists or agnostics, whe
do not believe in any religion but the
doctrines of "the Bushido."
"The Bushido," for instance,
teaches a man or woman to have the
courage to perform hara-kiri if he or
she commits any serious offense. The
spirit of this doctrine is that the of
fender should kill himself instead of
waiting to be executed by the law,
which latter is considered in Jinan
as one of the most cowardly things
"The Bushido" also teaches that tin
life of a Japanese is a gift of the holy
Mikado, and if the country need the
lives of her people they should bi
given gladly, for that is only to reuin,
to the Mikado what they have re
ceived from him.
To die on the battlefield is the only
key for a Japanese to find his way tc
his Shinto heaven, and the soldiers
who were not killed on the battle
field are considered unfortunate. It is
maintained in Japan that if a man
gives you a favor or money, or pleas
ure, you should return it with more
than what was given to you.?Hdyesa
buro Ohashi in Leslie's Weekly.
Flour Bleached by Electricity.
At least one patent?and there may
be others?has been granted in this
country to a process for bleaching
flour by electricity. The process de
pends on the bleaching action of the
gases produced by sending an electric
current through the air or water. A
French chemist has examined a sam
ple of an electrically bleached flour
to see if the composition had been
changed in the process; no mention
is made of the source of the flour or
of where it was bleached. He reports
that the sample is undoubtedly whiter
than the unbleached Hour, but that n
has a less pleasant taste and odor.
The general composition is scarcely
altered; there is a slight development
of acid and a change in the character
of fats, a change in the direction of
rancidity. It. is shown, therefore, that
the food value of the Hour is not
changed by bleaching, but thai the
product has the odor and taste of an
old and somewhat stale article. Since
the whiteness of Hour j.- a purely
I aesthetic matter, it certainly seems
questionable whether it is worth while
