Martin and I have concluded thait econl
omizinIg, especially in the matter of
eating, is a tiresome anll unth:ankful
pastime. W\e left (;reenock rather un
expectedly a few days ago, thinking
that we had seen enough of Scotland
for the nonce. Fortune shunted us 'ar
to the south in County Glaumorgan,
Wales. where we proceelded to contilinue
existing on a cut rate basis, bult the
Welsh folk with whom we came in
contact did Iot--'twould be mean to
say that they culd not- appreciate
the a'sthetli side of our venture. For
soith, they took us too seriously, nlod
the locality hlreablouts will shortly be
bereft of the lreisen(e of the three Jer

Wn hle of l:Turoe with their original
plans for cheap living.
Tit'h story ,of the folrnli:in of ouir re
solve' to Ica e Wales and the \VWelh as
spejl'edily as possible is one which will
ever reitnil us that experiniente'rs in
social economy shouldl first choose a

we thought that a trampllll throgh tlhe
hills and mountains of WVales would
be both inexpensive and interesting.
In wlhat afterward proved to have
been anl evil mon: tnt Soverel offered
the suggestion to hunt up a mining
town wlere we might possibly find an
opportunity for earning a small amount
I of money.
"It would look well," said be, "for
us to be able to return home with plen
ty of cash in our pockets. Our friends
would then be convinced that we real
ly had 'lived on the land.' "
Rickety, Jerry built horse cars left us
at Mumbles head, on Swansea bay.
Near by were anthracite mines, and
noon of the second day In Glamorgan
county saw us plodding toward the
f hills plainly visible from the town of
Mumbles. where were sunk the shafts.
"What's all this coming down the
pike?" cried Martin, breaking an inter
val of silence. Pushing onward in our
direction was a motley crowd of men

and women. and as the procession
drew nearer a weirdly pitched, monoto
nous, chanting sound saluted our ears.
The words In the Welsh dialect were
mostly unintelligible, but we finally
made out the following:
Remember Job, that patient man,
What trials and troubles he did stan',
How in distress he foun' a friend,
And so shall we when the times do mend.
Questionings developed that a strike
was in progress at the mines and that
this song, which had been handed down
from one generation of miners to an
other, was used to cheer the workers
as they marched from place to place
looking for assistance.
We hunted up the superintendent of
the mines, a man about 30 years old,
who seemed very much impressed with
his Importance. lie told us that we had
better move on to some locality where
there was no disaffection among the
employees. "Your lives would not be
safe an hour here if I were to put you
at work," he informed us.
"But we aren't regular laborers," we
said. "Our object is to seelie country
under novel circumstances, and this is
only one of our experiments."
The superintendent then became ex
cited and told us to "clear out." Ile
also called us a pack of fools who
didn't kngw enough to stay oa their
own side o- the Atlantic.
"Let's get out of tlisdcountry," was
Martin's first words as we resumed the
dusty highway leading to Munmbles.

problem have failed it is up to w'%Vomlen to
try the uffect of diplomacy on their do
mastics and to recall the ancient truism
that no woman ever yet lived who was
case hardened against a compliment ju
This has no reference to commendation
of their work. The hired girl having no
pride in her occupation is indifferent to
your opinions as to whether it is well
done or ilL It means the compliment, di
rect, personal, eternally gratifying, that
extols her face or figure. A femniine
diplomat who is worthy to tread a
measure with Li Hung Chang assures me
that this is a device that never fails.
For instance, she had a girl who was
manifestly sulky about having to wear a
cap. The first time she appeared in it
her mistress raised her lorgnettes. "Upon
my word, Julia," she exclaimed in an en
f raptured tone, "I must have you photo
graphed in that cap. It's altogiather the
most fetching and picturesque thing I've
seen " an age in the way you have it
on," and that closed the cap incident. On
another occasion she was afflicted with a
maid who was the sort of person you
would like to send for death, secure in
the fact that you would have lived as
long as you wanted to before she got
back. Neither tears nor prayers nor
bribes ever hurried her one iota. She
seemed hopeless, but this Talleyrand in
petticoats was equal to the situation.
"Of course," she said sweetly to the
maid, "it doesn't matter to me how long
you take to do your work, but I should
think as pretty a girl as you are would
hurry through with her tasks so she could
dress up and go out where she would be
seen." The reformation was instan
taneous and complete.
These are but a few illustrations that
point the way and show what a field for
the diplomatic talents of women is open
ed up in the servant question. The hired
girl has proved beyond all possibility of
doubt that she cannot be coerced into the
path of duty, but she can be jollied along
it. What she pines for is not an eight
hour day of more afternoons out, but gilt
edged compliments and flattery adroitly
applied. And in this she shows she is
merely human and woman.-Dorothy Dix

At this juncture Hunt said cheerfully:
"I Jon't want to keep your money. Let's
shake dice, and you can win it all back
by doubling every time you shake."
Fifteen minutes later the $3,500 had
increased to somethiing over $12,000,

American. "You can't play poker or

Speaking of the war with Spain and
the subsequent Insurrection in the Phil
Ippines, one naturally turns to the Pre
sidio, out here on the abutments of the
Golden Gate, which has been the ren
dezvous of an army outward bound for
the firing line some 6.000 miles across
the Pacific and the resting place for
tropic tanned veterans returning after
a wearying chase of the wily Filipino.
Of course the Presidio Is not now the
scene of such activity as it was when
the big military expeditions were being
fitted out for Manila a year,and a half
or two years ago or when a few
months ago troops were being forward
ed from here to China, but it is still a
point of much interest to visitors to the
Pacific coast. The Presidio, which ev
erybody knows is division headquar
ters for the department of California,
United States army, was established
as an army post by the Spaniards
about 100 years ago and was first occu
pied by American troops in March.
1849, by Captain Lippet's company of
Colonel Stevenson's New York volun
teers, the original "Plug Uglies." who
cut something of a figure in the old Ar
gonaut days. The locality was declared
a military reservation by the president
on Nov. 6, 1850, and originally embrac
ed about 1,500 acres, but since the ad
joining posts of Fort Point and others
were Included it now contains over
2,000 acres, with a water frontage of
over four miles. Division headquar
ters were established there July 1,
The Presidio is situated In the north
west suburbs of the city on a slope
which ascends gradually from the sand
and salt water marshes on the southern
margin of the bay of San Francisco. It
overlooks the bay and has a tne view
of the fortifications on Fort Point, a
mile to the north, and tile batteries on
Alcatraz and Angel islands and those
of Point San Jose and Lime Point.
Back from the post the ground rises
into grass covered hills dotted with
clumps of trees. However, shade is not
a serious necessity, as the sun is near
ly always welcome. The climate of the
locality is varied and variable, gener
ally mild and pleasant during the early:
part of the day, but usuall; , hilly and
damp at its close. In the matter of
sanitary conditions, both natural and
