TELLS OF COMRADE'S DEATH
Illustrative Instance of the Heroic
Spiirit of the Japanese
The English edition of the Japa
nese Graphic, published in Tokio.
throws many interesting sidelights
on the war and brings the people
near to Occidental readers. The fol
lowing report of the death of a sol
dier. Harukichi Ozawa. was sent to
the bereaved family by his friend.
"Alas: Sankichi has missed a great
consolation tod*y. May 16 is a me
morial day that Sankichi will never
forget as long as he retains his senses
On the very day I, with Mr. Earuki
chi, was secretly sent to Loah.shan
on an important mission.
"The enemy gradually increased in
number from 70 or So to 120 or 130.
We were now convinced that death
could not be escaped, yet still we
kept firing, while, at times, trying to
make them believe us -to be numer
ous, we cried many orders and charg
es. This ruse however, was not ef
fective, for the enemy threatened to
shoot us all in a body. Seeing the
state of things we endeavored to
make a dash for freedom- dow,n the
stee) mountain pass.
"At this juncture Mr. Harukichi
was shot through the shoulder and
the same shot grazed my right leg.
Mr. Haruk; hi fell down firt and
then I did the s.ame. Blood gushed
out copiously and we were both of
. us dved crimson. But we wer.- not
killed yet, and I said: 'Mr. Ozawa,
are you able to move?' His answer
was: 'I am all right. Hok are you?'
When I 'Eold him that my case was
slight and called for no anxiety, he
raised him-:i and said: 'Come now,
let us go We must not suffer our
selves to die before we make a re
"Thus urging me, he ran rapidly
about half a mile under cover of the
trees, when accidentally fell down,
stumbling against the root of a r"t
'ten tree. Upon his fall he sai-2 gasp)
ing with pain: 'Farewell; I am done
for now. Don't mind me, but run for
"I endeavore:1 to raise him, saying:
'Don't talk so hopelessly,' but he only
shook his head. I could not mend
matters, and so parted with him v.1th
tears in mhy eyes, saying: 'Then I
cannot help you, but depend upon it,
I will avenge you at any cost.' I
quickly rejoined the main body and
made a detailed report. A party of
us then hastened to where Mr. Hiar
ukiehi was iying. WThen he saw its
approachi"g he stood up and, shout
ing, 'Banzai!' passed awey to another
"Not an oEcer but was moved to
tears, not a~ soldier who witnesed his
brave comrade die but thought of
avenging him. Now Laohushan has
fallen into our hands, which fact may
to some extent ease his implacable
resentment. Such being the truth, if
the news of this glorious death shall
dispel some of the sadness of his rel
atives and friends, nothing shall ex
ceed the joy of Sankichi."
Food For the Stock.
Those who have tested the use of
cooked and uncooked foods for stoc':,
more particularly for swine, agree
that the uncooked foods, are by far the
most digestible. This opinion would
delight the vegetarians who urge uin
cooked fruits and vegatables as being
more wholesome. Yet there are two
sides to 'the story, as usual. There
seems to be no denying the value of
the uncooked food, with animals at
any rate, but we all know that a quan
tity of raw fruits and vegetables caten
by humans during the summer is apt
to create a disturbance of the diges
tive organs. Not always does it
cause loosene~s of the bowels, but
aiity of the stomach, which is v'erv~
ainful. Is it not fair to assume that
if uncoo ked food hias this effe,ct Onl
he human siomach that it must
have sne had effect on the stomach
of the farm animal?
This may he a litcle far-;etched,
but experience has taught the writer
meal a day during the winter is ben
that. without exception, one warm
eficial to the animals. Even our
horses have a warm mash, and it has
been well cooked, coo. The poultry
have the warm cooked mash and the
hot corn at night every other day,
and thrive on it. This being our ex
perience, our argument is that ani
mals should have cooked food occa
sionally, but that most of their
meals should consist of food not
Fun With a Dime.
Kansas Cicv Star.
Just to have a litle fun, Glen Shep
herd, ticket seller at the Orpheum.
placed a dime under the glass over
which the theatre's customers pass
their adimission money. The coin
looked as though it was on top of the
glass. A few minutes later a man
came in and h) tight two seats. He
noticed the dime and decided to ap
propriate it. After leaving the win
dow he stepped around where he
could not be seen by the ticket seller
and reached for the dime. Finding
the coin under the glass the man beat
a huried retreat while Shephard
laughed. The next one to "bite" was
a woman who bought her tickets and
then said: "Pardon me, but you are
rather careless, young man. Here's
a dime that belongs to you." Finding
she couldn't push the coin to the tick
et seller, she said: "Oh, I see, old
Mister Smarty," and left. The next
one was a man who tried to push the
dime with 15 cents of his own money
in for a quarter seat. Then came a
pretty girl. After getting her tickets,
she said: "Some one has left ten
cents of his change here." "It's yours,
then." replied Shepherd. 'Thank
you." she said. Then she tried 'to pick
it up. She started away blushing,
but returned. "Say," she said. "I'm
glad you didn't put three dimes un
der there. I might have gotten mix
ed and tried to buy my tickets of the
30 cents. That's what you look like
to me." Shepherd took the dime out

VALUE OF THE BIRCH.
What Old-Time Writers Regarded as
Old writers in mentioning birch
trees seldom failed to say solemnly
that they were useful to grow
branches with which to give boys
thrashings. Turner regards the sup
ply of "flexible, pendent branches"
for purposes of punishment as the
chief merit of the tree. Coles also
based his estimate of the birch chiefly
on its use in the supply of rods as
instruments of punishment, for he
writes, "The civil uses whereunto the
birch serveth are many; as, for the
punishment of children, both at home
and at school; for it hath an admir
able influence upon them to quiet
them when they are out of order, and
therefore, some call it make-peace."
In ancient Rome the faces of the lic
tors, with which they cleared the
way for the magistrates, were form
ed with rods of birch, and their in
fluence was usually sufficient to in
sure a rapid dispersion of men as
sembled where they would impede
the passage of the administrators of
the law. From that time to within a
comparatively recenti period the
birchen rod was regarded as one of
the most important deterrents of ju
Fatalism Among the Welsh.
An epidemic of scarlet fever, which
is raging at Cogninan, near Aberyst
wyth, Wales, owes much of its viru
lence to the spirit of fatalism which
prevails among the Welsh.
The people believe that if they are
fated to catch -The fever no precau
tions will save them from it, and that,
on the other hand, they can come in
contact with it with impuni-ty if it is
not their fate to be infected.
This spirit of fatalism is shown by
the Welsh custom of holding "wylno
sau," or prayer meetings, at the
house of a dead person.
The friends of the dead crowd into
the house and remain for an hour or
two regardless of the cause of death.
At the end of the service they
march in procession around the coffin
to take a last look.
Although ministers of religion and
members of public ' dies have utter
ed vehement protests, the custom of
the "wylnosau" continues to flourish,
and in more than one instance it has
been proved to be directly responsi
ble for the spread of 'the infection.
The Joker's Joke.
Elson T. Thurber of Detroit who
was once a newspaper man in that
city, but who has abandoned that
field and taken to the prosaic occu
pation of selling flavoring extracts.
was at 'the P!ankington house, the
centre of a s-tory-telling group.
The head of our firm hay a trying
experience last Fourth of July," said
Mr. Thurber, as the conversation
slackened. "He thought he would
play a funny joke on his family, so a
day or so before the holiday he
bought one of these candy boxes
made in imitation of a cannon crack
er. He secreted this in the pantry,
where he thought it would be safe.
But his little son, about 8 years
old, discovered the firecracker, and
also discovered that it was filled with
candy. So he helped himself to the
contents and finally, finding the box
empty, he made' way with it and sub
sitnted a re-al canno~n cracker.
"F5urth of Juily came and the head
of the family, smiling broadly at his
aproachin1g joke. came. down stairs
andi placing his big firecracker in the
middle of the breakfast table. Then,
regardless of his wvife's expostula
tions, touched a match to the fuse,
never thinking but what it was the
candy box on the table.
"His son and heir astutely vanished
from the scene about thIs time. In
about thirty seconds there was an ex
plosion ~that wrecked a once happy
breakfast table, and one hour later
the worst spanked boy in Detroit had
sobbingly confessed to an irate father
why the joke had failed."
