'All the World Comes to Kandy. ' '
Dy WILLIAM T. ELLIS.
(Copyngm, by Joncpli II. llowJes.j
A party of young Ilooslcrs who lic5
been up to tho lakes got aboard an
accommodation train In southern In
diana u fow months ngo. They were
mostly young follows from tho farms,
and real cut-ups, Having beon away
from homo over night, they were
now traveled men of the world, they
wanted you to know, nnd they took
possession of thnt sleepy old conch
In real coltish fashion. I'vo seen that
type often, In so many places that I
was not especially Interested. Across
tho alslo from me, though, occurred a
rather Illuminating Incident.
Two of the oxcurslonlsts, n young
mnn'nnd his "steady company," seat
ed themselves In front of Jenkins,
who travols for a book hoiiBO In New
York, and who Is really ono of tho
most cultivated and urbnno men on
tho road. Young Hayseeds lighted
n rank cigar, and began to smoke, to
tho evident distress of the girl and
several Indies near by. In a mlnuto
Jenkins leaned forwnrd and tapped tho
smoker on tho shoulder.
"Pnrdou mo, my friend, but this Is
not a smoking cnr."
"You dnrst smoko on excursion
trains," caino back tho rather belliger
"Ah," very politely, "hut this Is a
rogulnr train, not nn excursion train.
And you will find n smoking car for
ward." With a look of triumph, and a noto
of contompt for Jenkins' Ignorance,
tho bumpkin rotorted; "Huh! Hut
this Is nn excursion train, 'cause
I have nn excursion ticket"
On Ceylon' Spicy Isle,
Thoro was no gnlnsaylng such mon
umental prnvlnclnllsm ns this, and
Jenkins sank back In sheer enjoyment
of tho situation. Ho has all tho literary
man's lovo of "types." I watched tho
barnyard rooster turn to his compan
ion nnd crow over the defeat of that
greenhorn back of him. Ho know tho
world, ho did; nnd ho could toll thorn
alt a thing or two,
I buppobo If Jenkins wero to moral
Izo aloud over tho Incident ho would
say that tho commonest fault In all
this big world Is Just provincialism.
Kvory pig thinks his own barnyard
Tho episode recalled my visit to
Ceylon. I had dono somo business for
tho housa at Colombo, which Is a
more Important city than a man from
Iloston thinks, nnd having a full day
THE OOHMOHEST BULT 13 PEOVINQALIgM
beforo my steamer sailed, I bad run
up to Kandy, a beautiful mountain
town thnt Is tho centor' of lluddhlsm.
Iluddha'a tooth or what passes for
Buddha's tooth Is worshiped thoro.
A black and oily Iluddhtst, with fow
clothes and a vast array of misin
formation, had attached himself to ma
ns guide. Ho was supposod to bo
educated, nnd a half-way Iluddhtst
priest himself, so he gave me quite
a lecture on lluddhlsm, and tho glories
of this particular Bhrlne, winding up
with tho assertion thnt "All the world
comes to Kandy every full moon."
And ho believed It. His horizon was
was peopled chiefly with Jusky devo
tees of "tho gro,-.t gawd Hhudd."
It Is human to think your way the
only way. Tho Drltlshor who cleverly
breakB tho top of his bollod egg and
eats the-contents from tho shell Is
horrIfled"t tho mussy American way
of cutting tho egg In half nnd Bpllllng
the whole mess Into n cup. Tho Ameri
can thinks the Urlton "queor" because
he ends his brfftkfast with fruit. In-.
stcaa of beginning It so, nnd becnuso
tho Urlton must have his afternoon I
tct., nnd because he eats such slathers
of meat at every meal. This Is mere
ly each man's putting up of his own
locnl standard ns universal.
Woll do I remember the half-con
cealed look of pitying scorn on tho
face of my Indian room steward tho
first tlmo I cvor entered A P. nnd O
steamer and began to dress for din
ner, ns Is the way of tho 'world east
of I'rovlncetown. The P. and O. line.
It would by myriads bo considered pro
vlnclnl not to know, has customs as
firmly Axed as those of a court. "Uut,
sir," he remonstrated, "you know wo
do not dress for dinner in harbor." 1
didn't know, any more than I knew
thnt It was "tho thing" for a man' to
go Into the dining room nny tlmo be
foro eight o'clock In his pajamas for
his "llttlo breakfast," or that pajamas
wore n sufficient dress for deck nny
tlmo after 11 at night nnd before eight
In tho morning. On another line, this
sort of dlshablllo would not be toler
ntcd. 8he Wanted a "Pawtah."
Spcnklng of our British friends, re
in I ml b me of a lot of quUt fun a car
load of passengers had over nn English
woman who wns "doing" America
from a cnr window She had como to
theso shores absolutely assured that
"PAWTAW! !" . . . .
tho English way In everything Is tho
only way, nnd her comments upon
whnt bIio snw, mndo In a loud enough
voice for her neighborhood to hear,
would havo been maddening wero we
not all so highly amused at her.
Tho climax como whon tho wholo
trnlnlond of people had to change cars
nt n llttlo junction, whero thero wero
few conveniences except a lunch coun
ter. Into this most of us had piled,
and wore ornamenting tho Btools near,
est to the grub when tho door opened
nnd n familiar voice called, "Pawtah!
No portor responded, for the slmplo
reason that thoro was none: nnd nftor
mndam had again cried, "Pawtah!
Pawtah!" this tlmo more peremptorily
than before, a good-natured drummer
near the door stepped up nnd, raising
his hat, asked If ho could bo of nny
assistance. Giving him a cold staro
through her lorgnette, the old damo
demanded, 'Aro you the pawtah?"
Tho drummer confessed that ho
wasn't, but thut overy American man
was nt the service of any lady In
"Oh, but I'd over so much rather
have the pawtah," was tho disconcert
"I know It, madam, but I regret to
say that there Is no porter here, Can
I help you?" Quite ungraciously tlie
snorting traveler, muttering comments
aloud about how much hotter they dc
things In England, allowed him to
transfer her 18 pieces of hand lugguga
to the other train, Then, when ho
had finished, bIio offorcd him n tip!
Anybody who has been n thousand
mllos from his own doorstep can mul
tiply Instances of this sort Indefinite
ly. For tho moment, though, I am In
terested In tho truth that provlnclnl
Ism Is ono of the great factors In tho
world's religious life. It Is petty-mind-cdneas
that has filled the earth with
local deities, or with partial and Inade
quate Ideals ot n Supreme Being, Go
whero you will nnd you will find locnl
ciiHtams being practiced, Instead of
a supernatural religion. Provincial
creeds take tho place of universal
truth. Puritan ancestors aro followed
Instead ot tho Almighty. Wo all seem
bound to worship God, It nt all, ac
cording to Luther, or Wesley, or Cal
vin, or Channlng, or Campbell, or
somo still smaller man.
Ab I havo sized up tho altuatlon, tho
greatest barrier encountered by tho
bigness ot tho Christian religion Is
tho smallness of human nature. Seems
to me that tho Founder of Chilstlanlty
afla-ilimt-todMtll )V provincial ho.
cnuso ho preached a gospel too big for
his tlmo. Ever since then his true rep
resentatives hnvo boon trying to pull
men nnd women out of their two-by-four
stnto ot mind' Into tho broader
vlow, deeper sympathy nnd longer
reach of n unlvorsal religion. Tho
spirit of provincialism and the spirit
of Christianity are deadly enemies.

In senrch of anything thnt would servo

that he had saved some of tho stale
