Wving Japanese soldier sheds no tears
in public, and indulges in no curses
threatening vengeance, but instead
he plays, he revels, he sings, and he
dances. A soldier's death is not one
to cause grieving; on the contrary,
it. is the greatest honor conferred by
high Heaven upon man-a privilege
which permits him, bracely facing
the enemy, to sink into the perfect
bliss of Nivana, into the arms of per
After the battle of the Yalu the
Japanese forces were too busy fol
lowing up the Russians to Feng
wang,cheng, driving them beyond
this town, and holding the strong po
sition for themselves, to indulge in
the usual ceremonies in honor of the
dead. On the last of May, however,
division after division and regiment
after regiment arranged for funcitons
necessary to pay the proper respect
to their brothers killed in battle. In
tht grove near their camps they built
park to roughly'simulate the artistic
p 'uctions of horticultural and land
scape gardening in their own beauti
fil country. However, lacking the
real thing' in the shape of a garden
they burlesqued their rockies and
grottoes, their flowers, and their ar
tificially misshapen trees. Paths were
cut and stairways excavated in the
solid earth, which led meandering to
various exhibits, or to the shaded tea
tables of the officers' mess.
Big hieroglyphic signs were hung
everywhere, all of them containing
some joke or pun, some hit or gibe
at the Russians. The exhibits, which
took the form of groups of uncouth
animals, Russian horses and soldiers,
and guns, were all made up from
spoils captured from the Russians.
In the grounds were the wrestling
rings with sandy floor, canopied
overhead with stray matting, sup
ported on four draped posts. Here
the heavy-weight men with corded
muscles, struggled for supremacy,
and for a final prize as champion of
the regiment; or, sides were chosen
from separate battalions and the
winner of each bout received a small
token, such as a box of cigarettes, a
cake, or a sweetmeat, and the side
having the largest number of throws
to its credit might receive a fifty
package box of cigarettes.
Next to the wrestling in point of
i.mportance, are the ceremonial fields
sport, are the amateur theathicals
and dances. With pratically no acces
sories, the soldiers succeed in giv
ing very interesting costume shows
mainly of national dances, but with
turns of comic story-telling, juggling.

of it all, is the fact that the whole

General Gordon and the Popguns.
One of the funniest stories I ever
heard was an anecdote of the late
General Gordon, says a writer in the
Era Magazine. Before the breaking
out of the war between the north and
south, General Gordon, who was a
bitter rebel, made speeches all over
the south inciting the people to rebel
lion. In his ardor he made frequent
use of the expression they would
"whip the yankees with popguns."
In the conflict that followed General
Gordon was one of the most valiant
Confederate fighters. His chivalrous
record as a soldier is one of the
most valiant Confederate fighters.
is chivalrous record as a soldier
is one of the brightest pages in war
history. When the war ended and
the south was vanquished, he re
turned to his native home of Athens,
Ga., and revived his practice as a
lawyer. A few years later. when a
fierce campaign was on in the state,
he consented to sp.cak at a number
of places, but his proslave views
were modified; he advanced new
ideas, and spoke of the building up
of a new south, under new conditions.
One night, in Macon, Ga., when he
had finished a brilliant oration on
these lines, an old fellow down in
the middle of the audience rose, and
addressing the general said:
"Look heah, seh! Didn't you make
a speech in this yer county, way back
younder in '61 ?"
The general meditated: "I believe
I did sir!"
"Well, didn't you tell us w~e could
whip them thar yankees with pop
The general stood with military
erectness, and, buttoning his long
