Correspondent of Eastern Periodical
Gives Valuable Hint That Makes
for Typewriter Economy.
Some time ago I saw on the house
hold page directions for prolonging
the usefulness of a typewriter ribbon
by brushing it with typewriter or
machine oil, and allowing the oil to
s,.ak into the ribbon over night. I
tried it, but had difficulty in getting
the oil on evenly. Then I tried re
moving the old ribbon, packing it in
the little tin box the new ribbon came
out of, and soaking It thoroughly with
oil-maybe 20 drops of oil. The other
ribbon went into a desk drawer and
stayed there until the new ribbon was
worn out, when the oiled ribbon was
put back on the machine, and was as
good as new.
The little metal spools which carry
the typewriter ribbon have a number
of openings at the top and bottom
through which the oil can be applied.
The ribbon with which this is being
written had had its third span of use
fulness made possible by the 20 drops
of oil. The luxury of having a new
or newly oiled-ribbon at hand, when
It is needed, is beyond words.
This typewriter, which Is a family
possession and usually runs about ten
hours a day, used to need two rib
bons a month. Since the oiling proc
ess was begun, two ribbons have lasted
three months, with frequent ollings,
which takes less time than telling
about it.--Christian Science Monitor.

There is something startling about
seeing Shetland ponies working. At
least, two oe them have regular Jobs.
They do not serve as mounts for chil

carts around the block. They put in
the day at bard labor.
One of them pulls an express wagon,
the other a small-siMed garbage cart.
To see them trudging along under the
tracks of the elevated trains, pulling
a lead among track horses that seem
three times their sise, Is apt to give a

The Japanese believe that there are
lucky and unlucky numbers. In this
respect they are not unlike many
Americans, but their belief is much
more deeply rooted, asu Is abshown by
the extreme care with which the
Japanese select their telephone nmm
beos, according to the Telephone Pres
service. The Japanese government,
which operates the service and has
been unable to meet the demand for
telephones, permits the buying sad
selllag of telephone subscriptions and
the correspondig numbers, and fre
quently very substantial sums are paid
tfr numbers that are repated to be
partlcularly lucky. It is said that the
luckieet number for business purposes
is eight, because the shape of the

In a City of Eastern Turkestan.
(Prepared by the Natiloal O@graphloe 5o
clety. Washingtoa. D. C.)
Once jade, lustrous, semi-precious
stone, was considered the key to the
supposed dispersal of peoples from
Asia. Jade ornaments were found in
Asia, Europe and America, and appar
ently mines of the stone existed only
in Asia. Jade seemed to prove, there
fore, that humanity had begun its con
quest of the earth from the heart of
the old continent to the East. In
latter years jade has been found In
veins or as boulders In widely scat
tered places over the earth, and its
supposed value as a key to early ml
grations of men has passed. But
romance still clings to this stone for
which the Chinese as a nation can
almost be said to have had a veritable
passion, and which, wherever it has
been found, has been highly valued
or even reverenced.
Characteristically jade is green, but
the most highly prized specimens in
China during some eras were pure
white or creamy white. The choicest
pieces of Jade were sent to the court
of the emperors. For thousands of
years the Chinese court workshops for
the carving and polishing of jade con
stituted the most famous seat of the
Sage and artisan alike among the
Chinese were strangely Infatuated
with this austere, wax-like stone. Its
Chinese name Yu, means "the gem"
none other is worthy to share place
with it. It is described as "the quint
essence of Heaven and earth" and "the
subtle matter of the rainbow con
creted and fixed under the form of a
stone." Even Confucius sang its
praises, saying that "in the eyes of
wise men its polish and its brilliancy
represent virtue and humanity, and Its
perfect compactness and extreme
hardness the safeguards of intelli
Quarried in Eastern Turkestan.
Though jade has been found in
greater or less quantities in many
places, Chinese or Eastern Turkestan,
not far from the geographical center
of Asia, is alike the greatest and per
haps the earliest source of the stone.
Travelers describe the jade quarries
as situated on the south face of the
Kuenlun mountains, in the main valley
of the upper part of the Karakash
river, south of the city of Khotan.
They ,xtend for a mile or more in
length, and in this space are the en
trances of at least a hundred tunnels
which riddle the mountain side in
every direction, and in some cases
pierce through the mountain to the
further side. The mineral Is found in
veins of varying thickness, In width
from a few inches to ten feet, but so
seemed and cracked as to make It
diicult to find a piece even a few
laches thick which is not badly flawed.
Until the middle of the last century
China maintained her authority over
eastern Turkestan, including Yarkand
sad Kbhotan. The people, however,
were Mohammedan, and in 1852 they
succedded in throwing oR the Chinese
yoke by a general uprising, in which
all the omlcals were massacred. The
jade workers, who were Chinese, prob
ably fed from the quarries at this
time and shared the fate of their coun
trymen. Their flothlng, implements
and remnants of food were left in
their haste, and were seen by Cayley
when he visited the quarries in 1871.
Work was resumed later, but too many
et the expert carvers and workmen
were killed during the rebellion for
the industry to recover its former
Loose boulders of Jade are often car
rled down by the forepof the current
in the Karakash and tributary streams,
and they eventually become embedded
in the soft clay banks or are deposited
in the bed of the river. This "water
Jade" Is highly valued by the Chinese
carvers, as its rough jaurney is a se
vere test of hidden flaws, which might
otherwise cause the block to fall to
pieces after much labor has already
been expended on it. It is obtained
either by digging the boulders out of
the baanks or by divers specially
trained for the work. An Inspector
always aecompanies these diving per
ties, whose duty it is to mark each
lmp as it is brought up, estimate its
value, and finally ship the jade to
Peking. Such pieces bring three times
the price of quarried speelmens of
similar size and color.
Other Seurcee of Jade.
In many rivers of eastern Turkestan
jade pebbles are found in abundance.

there seems little reason to doubt the
existence of the mineral along the
whole of the Kuenlun range. Much

veins, owing to the shifting sands.
A huge dike of nephrite, one form
of jade, embedded in the rocky banks
of the Raskemdaria, on the eastern
slope of the Pamir. was another source
from which the Chinese formerly drew
large supplies. They extracted it by
lighting large fires on the rock and
then throwing water on It when it be
came thoroughly heated. The rock
was abandoned some years ago in con
sequence, it is said, of the illness of
a member of the Imperial family, who
was taken sick after naving slept on
a bed made of Raskem nephrite. A
large block of the stone which was
then on its way to Peking was put In
chains and thrown on the roadside at
Kutcha ! It was from this ridge on
the Raskemdaria that was taken what
is probably the largest piece of
wrought jade in the world-the mono
lithic tombstone of Tamerlane. This
famous tomb of darkest-green jade
stands in a half-rained mosque at
Samarkand, and is 7 feet 8 inches
long, 17 inches wide, 14 inches high,
and weighs about 1,800 pounds. It is
broken through the middle, but is well
polished, completely covered with in
scriptions, and rests on a white marble
The Chinese use the utmost care in
carving jade. The workman, having
determined from the natural form of
the block and its visible and probable
flaws, into what object be will carve
it, fixes it on a lathe and gives it the
general outline. The interior is then
hollowed out by first drilling, with
diamond-pointed needles, Innumerable
little holes all over the surface which
is to be broken away. When this is
completely honeycombed the partl
tions are broken down by being sharp
ly tapped with a hammer. Too hard
a tap might develop some hidden flaw
and shatter the half-finished object.
The piece is finally polished with co
rundum. The harder the stone and the
more difficult the cutting the more -
brilliant the polish it is capable of
acquiring. It is claimed the jade is
softer when freshly taken from the
quarries. So great is the difficulty of
carving jade that an elaborate piece
may represent a ltfetime's labor. In
Kienlung's ateliers, In the summer
palace at Peking, the workmen suc
ceeded each other without interrup
tion night and day. Bven then many
years were occupied in completing a -
Put to Many Uses.
The uses to which jade has been put
by the Chinese are almost endless.
Discs of the stone, which when struck
give forth a dear, resonant note, are
used as temple geongs and musical in
struments. Ritual vessels are gtde of
it. Tablets insertbed with sacred writ
Ings, bowls and vases of fantastie form
and Intricate desllgn, statuettes of
Buddha, perfect alike in ecoception and
execution, candelabra, boxes, pencil
holders and all the paraphernalia of
the writing table, as well as buckles,
bracelets, rings, hooks, buttons and,
ether ornaments are all wrought with
untilatg patience and matchless skill
from the same Intractable material.
As a material for artistic workman
ship jade was known in India only
from the time of the Moguls, who en
couraged its employment unstintingly.
The arts of carvin in frost-like open
work and of" Ilaying, which found
such perfect expresslio in the Taj
Mahal, were lavished In miniature on
jade caps, beetle-boxes, sword and
dagger hilts, and turban ornaments,
for which there was an unfailing de
mad at court.
Many specimens of jade work as
well as of the unwrought stone have
been purchased in China; but some of
the best Western collections owe much
Indirectly to the looting of the Pekin
palaces by European soldiers In 1800
and again in 1900 and 1901.
