A Special Invitation
Is extended to every lady in this city
to call at 2121 Fourth avenne, and in
spect the splendid work being done
by the scholars in the "Diamond
(iarment Cutter school." The man
agers wish us to say to the public

more students. "First come, first
served." An investigation will con
vince those who are in favor of "prac
tical education" that this is the
chance of a lifetime. Parents, if you
want your daughters educated in a
useful art of cutting and fitting any
kind of garments worn, our advice to
you is consult the managers of the
above named school ere it is to late.
We point a few word of commenda
tion from those who have taken at
vantage of the instructions.
An Experienced Dress Makers' Opinion.

garments of every description.

If you would win in the Battle of Life

Dyspepsia kills these needful quali

Tablets after each meal.
With a perfect digestion go a strong,

Dyspepsia Tablets ensure all' these.
Dodd's Dyspepsia Tablets have nev

fairly tried. They cannot fail.
Dr. R. B. Strong, New York City,

possibly be more efficacious though it
emanated from a council of the leading
physicians of the world.

METROPOLIS OF CHINA.
Peking:, the Chinese Capital, Is
Divided Into Two Great Parts.
ESSENTIALLY A DOMESTIO CITY.
It Has So Foreiga Qaarter Nearly
All Iloaaea of Forcigaen Are
Les-atloa Street Walla of the City.
Army of China The Tsnns-Ilya-
Peking, the capital and metropolis 'of
China, is one of the most ancient cities
on the globe. Practically it is in the
name condition now as it was hundreds
of years ago, no progress having been
made by the Chinese cither In modern
izing the city or developing it as a
trade center, ays the New York Press.
The same Id style houses and the
same old streets, badly laid out and
wretchedly paved, bear silent witness
to the backwardness of the Chinese na
tion. While other cities in the far east
have taken steps to keep pace with
the times, Peking has lain dormant.
No foreign capital has been permitted
within its walls, and no suggestions for
the amelioration of its condition have
been accepted. Lying within the great
walls that encompass It, it has slept
for years, while the rest of the world
has been taking gigantic strides to
keep up with the march of progress
Peking is divided into two great cit
ies, the northern part being known as
the Tartar city and the southern as the
Chinese city. The former has an area
of 12 square miles and the latter an
area of about 15 square miles. The
Tartar city Is surrounded by a wall GO
feet high, 00 feet thick at the base and
40 feet at the top, aud the Chinese city
is encircled by a wall 30 feet high, 25
feet thick at the base and 12 feet at
the top. Outside these walls the suburbs
include, with the cities, an area of
nearly 25 miles in circumference.
Within the Tartar city lies the Im
perial, or Yellow City, which in turn
contains the Purple, or Forbidden City,
encircling tbe emperor's palace.
With a iopulation of nearly 1.500,000
and growing fast Peking has plodded
along on the same old antiquated lines
for centuries. It has not even made
provisions for sanitation, so necessary
to the health and welfare of a large
community, and the conditions as they
exist today are unusually filthy. Stand
ing on an extremely sandy plain, it has
no water supply, and what water it
does get is never pure. Through many
of its streets it would be Impossible
to drive a vehicle, and after nightfall
progress is uimcuit even ror pedes
trians, the thoroughfares being lit only
by lanterns swung from the doors of
In dry wealher its streets are cov
ered with dust, and in rainy weather
they are knee deep in mud. The houses
are of brick, usually one story, and
are roofed with tiles. All the neces
saries of life nre exceedingly dear, and
the great majority of the inhabitants
are miserably poor. Jts manufactures
are trifling, and the trade of the city
Is confined principally to supplying
the wants of its citizens.
Peking is essentially a domestic city
in that it has no foreign quarter, as
have nearly all of the larger cities of
tho world. Its foreign element con
sists mostly of members of legations,
missionaries and a few merchants. The
houses of foreigners are nearly all in
Legation street, one of the city's prin
cipal thoroughfares, and they are built
some distance from each other. It is
said that this portion of Teking is the
cleanest part of the great city.
Whatever else is permitted to decay
and go to waste in Peking, the walls
surrounding the city are kept in good
repair. They were built, tradition has
it, to keep out invaders, and to this
day the inhabitants believe that behind
these massive piles of brick and stone
they are Rafe from any enemy which
may want to attack them.
On the outer faces of these walls at
Intervals of 00 feet are built square
buttresses, and on top of these there
are guardhouses occupied by troops.
Sixteen gates, each surmounted by a
tall tower, lead into the city. These,
towers are built in tiers, or galleries,
and are provided with many loopholes
from which Are can be directed toward
Kwang-IIsu, the present emperor of
China, was born on Aug. 2, 1872. He
is a son of Prince Chan and succeeded
to the throne by proclamation at the
death of Emperor Tung-Chi on Jan. 22.
1875. He was married on Feb. 2t,
1SS0. Kwang-IIsu is tho ninth emper
or of China of the Mantchoo dynasty
of Tsing. which overthrew the native
dynasty of Ming In 144. Tllere is no
hereditary succession to the throne.
but each sovereign appoints his suc
cessor from among the members of his
family of a youuger generation than
his own. Kwang-IIsu was made the
nominal occupant of tte throne when
he was S years old by arrangements
made by tbe empress dowager, and he
assumed control of the government in
February, 1SSD. On Sept. 22. lSi3. an
imperial edict was Issued stating that
the emperor had resigned power to the
empress dowager, who has since re
tained the direction of affairs. The
death of Kwang-IIsn has been report
ed many times, but it is believed that
be still is alive. On Jan. 24. 190O. it
was declared by decree that Fu Tsing,
a son of the Trince of Tuan. was em
peror, and this declaration is regarded.
as equivalent to Kwang-IIsu'g deposi
The army of China comprises The
Eight Banners," nominally containing
about 300.000 men, descendants of the
Mantchoo conquerors and their allies.
The number maintained on a war foot
ing is from 80,000 to 100,000. ThJs
force is subdivided i&to three groups ot
Mantchoos. Mongols and Chinese. The
Imperial guard in Peking contains
from 4.000 to COOu meu. Besides "The
Eight Banners." there is "The Ying
Ping," or national army, which con
sists of IS corps under a governor or
governor general. Their nominal
strength is from 540.000 to 000,000 men.
of whom 2uu,"00 are available for war.
The most important contingent is the
Tien tsin army corps, about 100,000
strong, with modern organization, drill
and arms, employed in garrison duty
at Tien tsin, Taku and other ports.
There are also other branches known
as mercenary troops, raised in emer
gencies, Mongolian and some irregular
cavalry, which are of no real military
value. The total laud army on a peace
footing is about oHO.COo men and on a
war footing about 1,000,000, but the
army as a whole has no unity or cohe
sion. There is no discipline, drilling is
& pastime, their weapons are obsolete,
and there is no transport, commissariat
or medical service. The war between
Japan and China a few years ago Is
still fresh in the recollection of many

Prince luan, who represents ignorant.
reactionary interests, has succeeded.
This is looked upon as a step back
ward, as Prince Chlng had some
knowledge of international relations,
but rrlnce luan has none at all. This
change also elevates the Mantcnoo ele
ment, which is responsible for the pol
icy of seclusion and hostility to for
eigners. Until recently the foreign
tKard had three Mantchoo and five Chi
nese members. Now it has seven Mant
choos and four Chinese.
NEW USE FOR TURKEYS.
SotMbern Plautera Importing; Them
to Dtmtroy the Uraaahoppera.
Several planters of the Delta have
adopted a unique method of destroying
the grasshoppers which have overrun
plantations iu Bolivar and Washing'
ton counties and threatened seriously
to diminish the cotton yield, says the
Memphis correspondent of the New
York Herald. The old soapsuds rem
edy and the inoculation process have
proved of little value, and now the
farmers are lighting the pest by plac
ing turkeys in the cotton fields. The
turkey has a ravenous appetite, the iu-
sect seems to tickle his palate, and tho
planters are counting on him to save
the cotton crop so far as these two
counties are concerned.
This new use has caused a great de
ma ml for turkeys. Nearly every com
mission house iu Front street has more
orders for the birds than it can fill.
The farms iu west Tennessee, Mis
sissippi and Arkansas, which usually
supply the Memphis market with the
Thanksgiving day bird, have all been
cleaned, and the commission men are
now looking to western Missouri.
The fondness of the turkey for
grasshopper diet is well known to ev
ery farmer In the south, but the idea
of utilizing the bird as a pest destroyer
n a large scale was never thought of
until this year, when all other reme
dies had failed. There Is a farmer
near Friar's Point. Miss., who raises
a large crop of turkeys every year
along with his cotton crop. Two years
ago, when the cotton worm and grass
hoppers destroyed nearly all the cot
ton In that section, he had a good crop
and a bugless plantation. He attributed
the absence of the insects to the pres
ence of the turkeys. Others profited
by his experience, and now the turkey
Is being imported solely for destroying
The experiment, if it proves success
ful, will ui-nii considerable money to
the planters, as the turkeys will pro
vide a double investment. In addition
to destroying the grasshoppers they
will fatten themselves and be in a posi
tion to bring good prices in the Christ
The presence of grasshoppers in such
increased numbers is due to the ex
treme heat of last year, which cracked
the "buckshot" lands. The grasshop
pers deposited their eggs in these
cracks, and with this protection they
hatched out in large numbers this year.
HEROISM STORY SPOILED.
Btatemeat That Jeanle Creek Did
t Flaa; the World's Fair Special.
Samuel May McDonald of Mill
Grove, near Portland, Ind., Is out with
a signed statement which takes all the
romance out of the story that Jennie
Creek doffed her red underskirt iu
1SJ3 and flagged a World's fair spe
cial on the Panhandle road which bad
on board prominent Frenchmen, being
remembered with the cross of the
Legion of Honor for her services, says
the Chicago Record.
McDonald in a portion of his state
ment quotes Samuel Personette, the
girl's foster father, as saying: "The
fact ia that the girl had ng more to do
with flagging that train than you did.
I discovered the bridge on fire, put it
out and flagged the train myself, and
I bave told everybody that has asked
me about it."
A Bother War of Edacatloa.
It really begins to look, says the Des
Moines Leader,' as if the world would
need to prepare itself for a tussle with
tbe Chinese alphabet.

China has killed enough missionaries,
according to tbe Indianapolis News, to
become indebted to the powers for seT
