concealed in the loose, flowing sleeves
of his dress-a sign of respect-and
says, with a deep bow:

r" agents, who are alw1ays natives.
They are called "eompradorEs."
If a foreign merchant wishes to buy
tea, silk, porcelain or other articles of
native product he must do so through
his "compradore." If he wishes to
sell any article of foreign product to
a native house he must again call in
the "compradore." The "compradore"
employs all the servants of the for
eigner's establishment, ixes their sal
aries and is responsible for their hon
esty. He keeps the foreign trader's
bank account straightened out with
the native bankers and makes out
shipping lists and invoices. Practic
ally, though nominally a mere upper
servant, he is the real head of the
house, and his word is law. He is
usually a shreA'd fellow, and watches
closely his employer's interests, not
forgetting his own. He has certain
legitimate commissions, or "squeezes,"
as they are called, on all of his trans
actions. His income is considerable.
A foreign merchant, having acquired
after a long residence a sufficient
knowledge of the language, decides
that his business is too much in the
hands of natives, and dismisses his
"compradore." IIe goes in person to
some native "hong" and asks for sam
f les and quotations. He is politely
shown through the establishment and
otherwise treated with consideration.
But When, with a view to buying, he
inquires for prices he gets a "No have
got" for answer. He goes to another
"hong" and another and another, but
always with the same result. No one
has anything to sell! All are behind
with their orders! Let the foreign
dealer return to his office and send his
"compradore" on the same errand,
and his orders will be promptly
filled. This is so in every department
of business where foreigners are con
cerned. In all of the treaty ports the
financial affairs of every foreign house
practically are in the hands of the
natives. Foreign merchants cannot
hope to reach 'the market except
through a class of middlemen. This
is the irrevocable custom of the coun
try. Thus commerce has utterly
failed to break down the barriers be
tween these strange people and the

Life in Sarawak.
A village in Sarawak usually con- o
sists of a single house of immense size, h
which affords accommodation to all the
inhabitants. The house is built on
posts ten or fifteen feet high. It has
a veranda along its entire length, "in
which is centred nearly all the social a
life of the community," and from this b
-veranda opens out the private rooms
devoted to each family. Cannibalism 8
does not exist in Borneo, but strips of
flesh are cut from the bodies of ene- t
-mies, stored in bamboos, and used as d
an offering to the hawks from which G
the omens are taken. In certain cases @
of illness the patient would be per- e
suaded to eat a small portion of hu
man flesh as a curative agent, but this
can hardly be regarded as canibalism.
In Dutch Borneo the people did at one
time to a small extent eat human flesh,
but the practice was stopped. For ex- E
ample, a male child might be very r
ill, and as a last resource it would be I
considered right to sacrifice a less val- a
uable female life to save him. In d
such a case, if the boy had a sister, a
she would be killed and a small piece p
of her flesh .civen to the patient to
eat, under the impression that his life
would thereby be preserved.-Cham
How Seaweed is Eaten.
Green and pink layer are sometimes
used in soups and murlins and eaten
in Ireland. In Wales seaweed fried
in oil is a common article of diet,
while in London it finds its way to
some tables boiled like greens. Dulse
is a species of ware which, even in its
raw state, is far from being unpalat
able; the opinion is held in some High
land quarters that a dish of dulse,
boiled in milk, is fit to set before a
king. Every Hebridean youth is a
connoisseur of the edible properties
of tangle; preference is usually shown
for the root of the plant, as being I
sweeter than the stem. In China and
Japan seaweed is largely used for
food, and for special varieties very
large prices are obtainable. Two of
these edible seaweeds, green and pink
layer, both British species, are worth
in Yokohama no less than one dollar
per pound. It may be noted that, un
like the fungi, there are no poisonous
species of seaweed. The gelatinous
principle in certain kinds of ware is
of special value in making jelly. Irish
moss, which is exported from Ireland
to this country and Germany, belongs
to this species, and from another va
riety is obtained the substance known
as gelose or Japanese isinglass.

"Potatoes contain a poison known re
as solanin," says the Sanitary Home,
Fargo, N. D. "New potatoes contain tl
comparatively little of this poison un- a
less they grow about the surface of 1
the ground and have a green skin, V
when they are generally known to be a
poisonous. It is not, however, gener- a
ally known that old potatoes contain b
much more of this poisonous principle r
-solanin-and many cases of serious tj
poisoning have occurred in late sum
mer, when old potatoes are used. In
1892 and 1893, there was almost whole
sale poisoning among the troops of
the German army. The symptoms d
were frontal headache, colic,diarrhoea,
vomiting, weakness, and slight stupor, f
and in some cases dilatation of the
pupils. Meyer investigated the case
and found in old potatoes, kept in
a damp place, and beginning to sprout, 7
twenty-four times as much solanin as C
in new potatoes. When using old po- c
tatoes in June and July, it will be well
to keep this fact in mind."
Coal Ashe as a FertilieA P
Coal ashes are never used as a fer 3
tilizer, but they are often spread on t
land to get rid of them as a waste
product. They make excellent hard, t
firm, dry paths around a house or in
a garden, and when so used they have t
tbeen found to greatly encourage the 4
growth of grass and.weeds, so that this c
experience seems to have encouraged t
the belief that they are useful. But t
as the ashes of soft coal are worth c
only forty cents a ton, and those of t
hard coal sixteen cents, it is evidently a
not a profitable business to gather t
them from a distance. The home-made I'
ashes may be used, to get rid of them, t
and if spread on grass land they have t
showed that they possess some value 1
beyond what their actual analysis t
seems to indicate. Ashes certainly do i
p not create weeds for this word means
to make something of nothing. They I
do not encourage them any more than
other plants. What will make weeds 1

"What a profound mystery invests 17
all the operations of our senses!" said e
a college professor of this city. "I m
was talking, the other day, with a very r
intelligent blind man. He had been a
blind from birth, but had received an m
excellent education, and was fully as ra
well informet as the average person m
one meets iin cultured circles. He tr
spoke freely cf his infirmity, and final- bi
ly I asked him whether he had ever al
succeeded in forming a clear mental
conception of the sense of sight. He
replied frankly that he had not, and
then he asked me several very curious g
questions. The idea of color, he said, ti
was a great puzzle to him, and he had t:
never been able to obtain the slightest
clew to what was meant when one
said, for instance, that one thing was
red and another thing was blue. 'Your
color impressions are absolutely sta
tionary, are they. not?' he asked. The
question startled me, it was so strange.
Now, what could possibly have been
in his mind? One would infer that
he associated color with some sort of
movement; yet, when I asked him to
explain he couldn't do it. He soon lost
himself in words, sighed, and gave it
up. He understood, as nearly as I
could gather, that the sense of sight
somehow furnished us with informa
tion as to the size, shape and general
character of surrounding objects, but
I am satisfied, from his questions,that
he had formed no idea whatever of the
picture that is presented to the brain.
He was unable to understand how a
whole scene could be taken in at once.
He could distinguish B flat on a vio
lint he said, but suppose the whole
surrounding country was full of vio
lins, all playing different airs? That
seemed to him a good apology for the
various things in a landscape. I soon
realized that explanation on either side
was hopeless. There was a barrier of
the inexpressible between us. I went
away with an immensely increased re
spect for the teachers at institutes for
the blind and deaf and dumb. It is
- a marvelous thing that they ever suc
ceed in breaking into these sealed

ribly handicapped into touch with

Dispatches from Salt Lake City re
port a very unusual development of
Mormon enterprise. A Mormon scien

out for a fifteen months' exploring
i trip to Mexico and Central and South
n America. The company is made up of
e twenty students of Brigham Young
e Academy, in charge of President Cluff
s of the academy and two members of
d the faculty. The general purpose of
Lt the expedition is to search for ruined
h cities, photograph their remains, and
f to collect botanical, archaeological and
y anthropological specimens. Besides
r this it has a special religious errand.
Le The Book of Mormon, it seems, claims
