death, the only daughter, Dora, of

trator will probably be appointed.
AN AVENUE OF IDOLS.
A Doable Row of Japanese Baddbas
Which Cannot Be Counted.
Close to this interesting pool is the
avenue of i mags, , representing the
Ainidii Buddha. Tho iriuls vary in size,
but aro similar in design. There are sev
eral hundred of them altogether, and
they sit facing one another in two long
rows. We asked tbo littlo Jap who
brought us to tiio place how many of
thorn thero worn In uu awed whisper
ho replied, "Nobody knows. " Then he
told us how impossible it was to connt
them. Each imago was made unsightly
by having nuiuliers of littlo bits of paper
stuck on to it and chewed bits of paper
which had been spat at it. The object of
this disfiguration wo failed to discover,
though our friend Hojo informed us they
were pnt on by the young priests, a part
of whoso novitiuto it was to attempt to
count tho Buddhus.
There is evidently something wrong
with these idols, for no one has ever
been able to reckon them np the same
twice over, in spito of sticking a piece
of paper to tick each one off. Of course
two nnsaperatitious Englishmen were
not to be humbugged by native stories,
so M. (my traveling companion) and I,
thinking the whole thing ridiculous, de
cided to court the mysterious images.
We started on .co-operative lines, each
taking a side of tbo avenue. Our efforts,
however, were fruitless, for we had not
numbered oil wore than a dozen each,
before M. (whoso eyes were not so good
as they had once been) shouted across to
me: "I say, I saw one of them on your
side moving. I'm certain I did. They're
uucauny. Let's give it np. " This inter
ruption of course upset all my calcula
tions, but we soon came on the moving
image, which turned ont to be nothing
more than one of the old Frenchmen,
seated peacefully among the statues and
looking in his white clothes for all the
world like a jolly, fat, old Buddha.

Another object lesson to the ven

6-year old Harry Strand was taken

playmates, who, alarmed at their
comrade's dangerous position.
