An Interest Ina Event.
The King's Daughters, of Bock Inl

a veritable treat, as it is learned they
bave engaged 1-rank ti. Carpenter,
the celebrated correspondent, to give
his illustrated talk on Japan under
their auspices at a matinee at Har
per's theatre, the afternoon of March
Mr. Carpenter is well known to the
reading public as one of the most
brilliant and industrious writers of
his day. For 10 vears, as a Wash
ington correspondent, a dozen or
more leading newspapers had some
thing of timely interest every day
irom nis un nagging pen. tie became
a great interviewer of our public
men, and alter a lew years washing

and he accordinglv became a globe
trotter and has been around the
world twice interviewing the great
One of bis most memorable jour
neys was to Russia the year of the
terrible famine, when he accom
panied the American commissioners
who took the corn and wheat from
Illinois and Iowa to the starving
peasants. Early last year Carpenter's
instinct for news led him to vi-it the
Orient for a second time, equipped
ior Jong overland journeys, and with
nne pnotograpbing outnt. his
published letters from Japan and
Korea early in the year show that he
clearly anticipated the war tbat
afterwards troke out. In this re.
spect he was six months ahead of all
oi her correspondents. He spent the
summer traveling over Japan, China
and Korea, making the journey across
the latter country entirely on horse
back, tie returned in the fall after
hostilities had broken out between
Japan and China, brim full of the
latest information touching those
countries, and what was of greater
importance, he brought back 2,000
new and rare photographs taken
under his supervision. His talks are
therefore replete with valuable infor-.
mation illustrated by works of art
for that is what many of his pictures
are if eastern newspapers are judges.
He gives 100 of these beautiful pic
tures with his lecture on Japan. He
calls the Japanese "The Yankees of
the Orient," and says they are the
origbtest ana brainiest of Asiatic na
tions, and every phase of their won
derful civilization is touched upon
and illustrated. A great deal more
could be said of Mr. Carpenter's work
and or bis Asiatic tours, but tbe peo
ple will have an opportunity of hear
ing the story from his own lips.
