The party papers are landing on him. heavy and often, because, for

Until we have a training school in which to educate all who are to
(succeed to cabinet positions we shall, every now and then, get a business
man at. the head of the navy or the army or the postofllee department,
and, really, It isn't a bad thing for the country.
Often It shocks the law of precedent and new ways and methods get
a chance. .

THE JAPS AND CIVILIZATION
They call the Japs the "Yankees of the East," and predict (hat In
enlightenment they will one day rival America.
II Ik hard to reconcile that statement with the known condition of the
women In Japan. A few are being educated. In the homes of wealth there
1* an attempt to put women on a par with men. So nun for the classes.
With the masses the man Is everything, the woman nothing If her
husband is a peasant—and the peasants form the bulk of Lie population
of the mikado's country—the wife works in the fields by his Bide. She
divides the toll and does the coarsest tasks uncomplainingly. It has never
been thought worth while to make her anything but a beast of burden.
v^ She haH no voice in the selection of a husband, and so she does not
marry for love. At best her becoming a wife is an arrangement. There
are few divorces, because, no matter how much of a yellow dog the hus
band may be, he can keep the children. They belong to him, not to his

She Is cheerful because that is a Japanese characteristic. . She is ex
pected in be cheerful. ■ . ' *

tion. Schools have been opened, and some of the low-class women—peas
ants— are being educated. But the task is a mighty one. It is against

Japan can be justly termed "enlightened."

TEACH CHILDREN JO SH7M
The BtOCUm steamboat disaster may bring about some good. The peo
pie ha\e been amused to t ln> ttSCOBSir) of teaching school children to

the pupil i<> <ope wilh those things h<> Is likely to encounter in real life.
Swimminn is not only healthful and muscle-building an an exercise, but
it may be the means of preserving the life of the pet son so equipped.
With physical training ocennytag a place so conspicuous In educa

which would gratify the parent, pupil and taxpayer.
STAGE LINE TO
Mail advices by the steamer Santa
Ana state that Captain VV. E. Geiger,
a pioneer Alaskan,", contemplates es
tablishing a stage line or sled route
the '; coining winter from Valdez
through: the Copper.-: river valley to
Fairbanks, the metropolis of the new
Tanana digging*. The distance, it is
Intimated, can be '/covered' In 400
miles or less by.way of Thompson
pass. To overcome this difficult at
the latter point ii is proposed to put
in ■ steam hoist or tramway, with a
stationary enlne located in the val
ley, and cars large enough to take up
teams, freight and passengers.
Relay stations are' to be estab
lished at distances of about 20 miles.
The route, in a general direction, will
follow that used by the United States
mail , carriers between Valdez and
Eagle City on the Yukon.
Several hundred persona went into
the Tanana district by '.way of Val
dez and the Copper river valley lute
last winter;' and. during the early
spring. Eight or ten from Tanana

Dressing the Feet.
A practical surgeon chiropodist of
HO years' experience says that he
feels justified in attributing 93 our.
of every hundred cases of ingrowing
toe-nails, bunions, corns and similar
ailments to the wearing of ill tilting
boots, shoes and stockings.
If our feel are shaped like Fig. 1
and we wear good firm stockings,
shaped like Fig. 2 and unyielding
shoos like Fig. ;! why should we not
We condemn the Chinese custom
of binding the feet in infancy; In
this country many enlightened peo
ple torture themselves through life
The feet are extremely pliable and
if the shoe is not bought to tit the
foot, the foot grows to fit the shoe

general health depends upon the
condition and care of the feet, there

If a straight line (Fig. 4) t>e
drawn from the tip end of the great
toe along the middle of the toe it

Short heels will cause the great
toe to be thrown out of place, pro- j
ducing an enlarged joint, will cause
bunion* and ingrowing nails. High
heels will produce the same deform
ities by throwing the foot forward
in the shoe, thus practically lessening
the length of the shoe. Narrow shoes
cause the various kinds of corns, al
though both corns and callouses are
caused by too loose shoes. Too light
soles for walking will cause corns
and callous spots on the bottoms of
the feet. •,.

The leaves are oblong. The fruit

is rather hard and is often preserved
