JAPAN A LAND) OF COLOR.
Farms of Two or Three Acres Divided
Into Many Tiny Fields.
Land is so scarce in Japan and the
people so numerous that a farm rarely
consists of more than an acre o.r two.
These little farms are divided up luto
tiny delds. During the season of the
year in which we made our journey one
of these fields was filled with sprout
tug barley. light green in color; anoth
er field, perhaps the next, with vetch,
a lavender colored. cloverlike fodder;
a neighboring field with a dark green
grass from the seed of which a lamp
oil is :nanufactured; another w!th the
pale yellow flowers of the mustard.
and scattered here and there fields
filled with what looked like a var' r
of lily. some white. some red. sone
yellow, but all equally brilliant.
Then to get the complete picture you
mu.t imagine patches of flowering
azaleas dott!ng the roadside: towering.
round topped canellia trees breaking
the sky line with frequent splashes of
bright green: usually in the shade of
these trees houses with white plastered
walls and red tiled roofs: about the
more pretentious of these houses white
plastered walls. above which appeared
a profusion of palis. roses and strange
native flowers. and in the doorways
of the garden walls kimono clad Japa

Good Kitchen Company.
One housewife in this town doesn't
know anything about the servant prob

work. the quality of such service not
being counted. This is because her
servants always become devoted to her
because of her brightness and mag
nanlmous treatment of them. Having
only the one servant of doubtful skill
and accomplsliments. this housewife
has to spend a good deal of time in
her own kitchen. The other day Julia

The Broom at the Masthead.
There still exists a very old custom
among seamen of displaying a broom
at the masthead of ships intended to
be sold to indicate that they are to be
swept away." The custom originat
ed with the famous Dutch admiral
Tromp. w'ho when he appeared off the
English coast hoisted a broom to show
his ntention of sweeping the Eng.
lish ieet from the sea. The Eng
lish admiral, replying to this Imper
tnent signa!. immediately hoisted a
horsewhip to the masthead of his
ship to show the arrogant Dutchman
that he meant to give him a drubbing.
For this reason a pennant is oftentimes
dubbed "the horsewhip" by seafaring
men. Sea lore, of course, is full of
symbolism, and the broom is only one
of many signs used that have a meta
ihorial meaning.-London Globe.
