b Sine. her husband was accredited
0. here in 1897 she has been a central
figure in official life. Very small of
I stature, with the flat nose, broad
e cheeks and thin lips of the Mongolian,
ia she is not handsome, according to
a. Western standards, though doubtless
n in the East she is considered a beauty
d of the first water. She has soft brown
as eyes that would grace any face, an
-a. expression of dignity and decision of
Ia character, and a charming smile, in
he which the loving kindness of her heart
T. is plainly reflected. She comes from
ad one of the most ancient and honorable
iv- families in the Flowery Kingdom, and
au- has the further distinction of pure
Lty Chinese blood. Her high rank and
co- origin is indicated in her costume, the
do gorgeous eagle emoroidered on her
re- breast being one of its most important
Lso features, : it indicates that she is of
on equal rank with her husband, privi
leged to enter and leave a room at his
ed side, instead of being compelled to
a meekly trot behind him, as would be
ip the case were she of lower caste. The
tly beads around her neck have also spe
h- cial significance, and are worn by
be both men and women in the celestial
an. land to show their station. These
Iy necklaces vary with the seasons, jade
ew and coral being adopted for winter
nay and sandal wood for summer. As is
uupposed to beft her rank. Mrs. Wnu'
feet are about the size of a year old
baby's, and are clad in the marvelous
little shoes that are seldom seen in
this part of the world, except in mu
seum cases. She dresses very hand
somely, being rich in her own right
and having brought to her husband a
generous dowry. Her wonderful clothes
are made in the legation by a Chinese
tailor, who is a member of the minis
ter's suite, and are all of magnificent
silk and satin, the very richest that
money can buy, and gorgeously em
broidered. But alas! there can never
be any change of fashion for a Chin
ese lady of the "upper crust." Her
gowns must all be cut from the same
model that her ancestors used, with
scant skirt, tunic and Jacket, in ac
cordance with royal decree. Her
heavy, shining, well-greased black hair
is 41ways dressed according to the
Canton mode; and her ordinary head
dresp, in doors and out, consists of a
band of black velvet adorned with a
On ceremonious occasions the hair
is built up into a regular Chinese pa
goda, with jewels galore all over it,
and pineapple shaped bunches of arti
ficial flowers behind each ear. She
has been an industrious student of
.English and understands it pretty
well, though she rarely attempts to
converse in any language but her own,
depending upon her husband to trans
late. As Mrs. Wu's little feet pre
clude her from walking, her daily ex
ercise is taken in an invalid's chair,
pushed by a Chinses servant, or in the
gorgeous automobile, propelled by the
minister himself, who has become an
adept chaffeur. When Mr. Wu and
his wife go spinning along the street
in their striking turnout, every head
is turned, you may be sure.
Sometimes cameras are leveled at
them, much to the minister's disgust.
He does not object to sit for his pic
ture in a proper way, but is very
averse to being "caught" off his guard
by an amateur. The personnel of
the Chinese embassy is larger than
that of any other, not even excepting
Great Britain, and numbers more
than fifty persons, including, besides
secretaries and attaches, a doctor, tail
or. shoemaker, barbers, valets and

An aged Yorkshireman was so fond
of Sir Henry Irving's acting that in
his will he said that when he died his
body was to be buried headless, and

. RCORQ OP THE PAST.
The best guarantee'of the future is
the record of the past, and over fifty
thousand people have publicly testi
fied that Doan's Kidney Pills have
cured them of numerous kidney ills,
from common backache to dangerous
diabetes, and all the attendant annoy- -
ances and sufferings from urinary dis
orders. They have been cured to
stay cured. Here is one case:
Samuel J. Taylor, retired carpenter,
residing at 312 South Third St.,
Goshen, Ind., says: "On the 25th day
UL August, 1897, 1 made an affidavit
before Jacob C. Mann, notary public,
stating my experience with Doan's
Kidney Pills. I nad suffered for
thirty years, and was compelled at
times to walk by the aid of crutches,
frequently passed gravel and suffered
excruciatingly. I took every medi
cine on the market that I heard about
I and some gave me temporary relief.
I began taking Doan's Kidney Pills
and the results I gave to the public
in the statement above referred to. At
this time, on the 19th day o- July,
1902, 1 make this further statement
that during the five years which have
elapsed I have had no occasion to use
either Doan's Kidney Pills or any
other medicine for my kidneys. The
r cure effected was a permanent one."
