SCIýINESE DISCOVERY OF 4MERIC4.
Pekin's Startling Jevelation of Onrental Exploration Unexpect
edly Gorroborated by EVidence Found in Mexico.
As the real Columbus a
Chinaman? This astound
lug question is raised by
a statement that has just
come from Pekin, reinforced by re
cent remarkable discoveries in Mexico,
Isays the New York Herald. In the
loot of one of the palaces in the For
bidden City there was found an au
thentic historical document telling of
the discovery of this continent In the
fifth century of our era by five Bud
dhist monks, who voyaged from China
to a distant land now deemed certain
to have been Mexico.
The document is from the pen of a
historian named Li Yen Shan, who
lived in the beginning of the seventh
century, and it tells the story as it was
related by one of those monks, who,
more fortunate than his companions,
returned from the New World in safe
ty, in the year 49J A. D. He described
the newly discovered country, which,
he called Fu-Sang. as situated soine
seven thousand miles to toe east of
China. The distance is stated in Ii,
three of which are about equal to one
of our miles.

He does not think the Chinese ever

there is striking evidence of the knowl

Here is the original document:
"Fu-Sang is situated about 20,000 11
to the east of the country of Tahan
and an equal distance to the east of
China. It has many trees, whose first
sprouts resemble those of thL bamboo,
and which serve the natives as food.
The fruit is red and shaped like a
pear. The bark of the tree is prepared
in the same manner as hemp, to be
manufactured into cloth and flowered
stuffs, and the wood serves for the
construction of houses. The inhabi
tants have a system of writing, and

never wage war.
"According to the laws of the king
corn, there are two prisons, one in the
north, the other in the south. Those
who have committed trifling faults
are sent to the latter, those guilty of
graver crimes to the former. The male
and female prisoners are allowed to
marry each other, and their children
are sold as slaves. When a man of
superior rank commits a crime the
people assemble in great numbers, seat
themselves opposite the offender, par
take of a banquet, and take leave of
the condemned person as of one who
is about to die. Cinders are then
heaped about the doomed man. For
slight faults the criminal alone is pun
ished, but for a serious crime his chil
dren and grandchildren suffer with
him, and in some extraordinary cases
his sin is visited upon his descendants
to the seventh generation.
"Deer are raised just as cattle are
in China, and cheese is made from the

pear is found there which is good at
all seasons of the year. Grape vines
also are plentiful. There is no iron,
but copper is met with. Commerce
is free, and the people are not given to
haggling about prices.
"This is the manner of their mar
riages: When a man wishes to wed
a girl he erects his cabin just before
the door of her's. Every morning and
evening he waters and weeds the
ground, and this he continues to do for
a whole year. If by the end of that
time the girl has not given her consent
to the union his suit is lost and he
moves away, but if she is willing he
marries her. The marriage ceremony
is almost the same as that observed in
"Images of the spirits of the dead
are placed on a kind of pedestal, and
prayers are addressed to them morn
inug and evening. The King does not
meddle with affairs of government un
til he ias been three years on the

dha was unknown in this country, but
in the fourth of the years ta ming, in
the reign of Hiao-wou-ti, of the Soung
dynasty, 8ive missionaries from the
country Kigpin went to Fu-sang and
there diffused the Buddhist faith. They
carried with them sacred books and
images; they introduced the ritual and
inculcated monastic habits of life. By
these means they changed the man
ners of the people."
Naturally, the most striking remains
left behind by the ancient people t'
Yucatan and Southern Mexico are
architectural, some of the ruins being
in at ery fair state of preservation.
Many of the buildings look like Bud
dhist 'emples-vast caves of stones,
dark and windowless. One finds in the
carvings on the ancient buildings of
Yucatan and Southern Mexico a no
ticeable likeness to grotesque Chinese
carvings, walls and pillars being
adorned with countless human heads.

tem, which embodied so many ee

amazes European scholars to-day.
The Unspeakable Turk.
A Turk thinks It the most natural
thing in the world to lose a province,
and, having lost it, to quit and live
elsewhere. He talks quite complacent
ly of leaving Constantinople some day;
he will go over to Asia and found an
other capital. He originates nothing;
he takes what he finds without assim
ilating it, and remains profoundly
Turkish. He leaves no trace of his oc
cupation except ruins. Practically
there is nothing at Belgrade, Sofia and
Athens to show that for centuries they
were Turkish cities.
All occupations, except agriculture
and military service, are distasteful to
him. Yet there are two other charac
teristics even more important than
these. The first is his sense of disci
pline. It is this which keeps together
the apparently tottering fabric of the
Turkish empire. It makes the half
fed, half-clothed soldier ready to en
dure every privation, and prevents the
corruption and incapacity of the offi
cers from producing the anarchy
which would be inevitable in any
other country. Sedition is unknown;
even complaints are rare, and were a
holy war proclaimed there is not a
man whQ would not be prepared to die
in defense of the system of extortion
which grinds him down.
His second characteristic is his lazi
ness, in spite of the laborious industry
of the Turkish peasant. The fact is
that the Turk is too proud to do many
things, too stupid to do others. His re
ligion inculcates a fatalism which
tends to a conviction that effort is use
Dgek Farming in Australia.
Although the raising of ducks in
Australia is a comparatively young
industry, it has already assumed con
siderable importance. One of the big
gest farms has 12,000 ducks of various
species. The establishment in ques
tion Is near Sydney. It covers an area
of eight acres, and is divided into
fifteen inclosures, in each of which a
special breed is kept. The females are
the object of particular care. Their
eggs are hatched in incubators, of
which there are thirty, capable of
holding from 2500 to 5000 eggs. The
proportion of eggs which produce
chickens is sixty-five per cent.
The drakes, which as a rule cannot
be advantageously exported, are sold
in the local markets. The ducks, on
the contrary, particularly those of the
Aylesbury breed, which grow almost
to the size of geese, are killed, put in
refrigerators and sent to the British
market. Some of the steamer3 em
ployed in this trade carry cargoes of
from 14,000 to 16,000. In New South
Wales alone there are now hundreds
of duck farms where some 50,000 are

September Has Been Big with Bate tea
the People of Malta.
The month of September is full ol
anniversaries of great interest to the
people of Malta. On Sept. 8, 1565, the
great siege of Malta was raised, when,
the Turks being completely repulsed,
Europe was saved from the common
enemy. The third or fourth Sunday
of the month is always made a fete
in honor of Roger of Normandy, who
liberated the islanders from the Sar
carens in 1090. History and the exig
encies of an isolated position have ac
customed Malta to invasion. Of all
the enemies that have overrun the is
land time after time one horde only
was dismissed once never to return.
It was just ten years ago on the 4th
of this month that the garrison sur
rendered to the British after the fa- t
mous blockade that lasted two years.
Like Ireland, Malta has no vipers, and
like the green isle, the flower of the
world, as the Maltese call their home,
owes its immunity to its patron saint.
Malta is the island of St. Paul. The
inhabitants delight in pointing out the
spot where the saint landed, the grot
to where he was imprisoned and the
exact place where, shaking the viper
from his hand into the fire he took
no hurt. He then cursed all venom
ous animals out of the land.

It is announced that Prof. Koch, ba-.

been hunting the microbe of malaria
in Java and other hot countries, has
perfected a medicine which is to be of
the highest value in all malarial coun

hypodermically and also as a swallow
medicine, and is commended both as a
cure and as a preventive of malaria.
Malaria is very much on the minds of

The disposition to blame it all on the

Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound can
always be relied upon to restore health to women who thus
suffer. It is a sovereign cure for the worst forms of female
complaints,-that bearing-down feeling, weak back, falling
and displacement of the womb, inflammation of the ovaries,
and all troubles of the uterus or womb. It dissolves and
expels tumors from the uterus in the early stage of develop
ment and checks any tendency to cancerous humors. It
subdues excitability, nervous prostration, and tones up the
entire female system.

"DRlAv MRs. PirsAM :-I was a sufferer from female weakness for
about a year and a half. I have tried doetors and patent medicines, but
nething helped me. I underwent the horrors of local treatment, but re
celved no benefit. My ailment was pronounced ulceration of the womb.
I suffered from intense pains in the womb and
ovaries, and the backache was dreadfuL I had
leuoerrhea in its worst form. Finally, I grew so
weak I had to keep my bed. The pains were so
hard as to almost cause spasms. When I could
endure the pains no longer, I was given morphine.
My memory grew short and I gave up all hope of
getting well. Thus I dragged along. To please
my sister I wrote to Mrs. Pikham for advice. Her
answer came, but meantime I was taken worse
and was under the doctor's care for a while.
"After reading Mrs, Pinkham's letter, I con
cluded to try her medicine. After taking two
bottles I felt much better; but after using six
bottles I was cured. All of' my friends think my
cure almost miraculous. I thank you very much
GRACE S.STAN3SURY for your timely advice and wish you prosperity
in your noble work, for surely it is a blessing to
broken-down women. I have full and complete faith in the Lydia
