Dear Sir I received your letter of
Nov. Zl by the post of yesterday. With
respect to the notes you write me
alxjut, I wish you to do by them as you
would by your own. as I do not want
nt present either principle or Interest.
I think it woulS be most for my inter
est to do by thetu as you propose. The
method you mention, of adding to the
outhouse so as to give me a dairy room,
I like very much and would leave It to
your judgment. I think it would be
best to have it large enough to take of
a closet that cold victuals, etc., may not
be mixt In with dairy affairs. I should
bo glad to have it compleated if possi
ble lefore I return In the ppring, but
the winter has set in with great vio
lence here, aud the rivers are already
frozen up. so that I fear we shall not
have a chance of getting any cheeso
Congress are but just getting Into

Washington excepted, who could bear
close application for any length of
time. What a ringing would here have
lKen i:i all the Jacobinical prayers
from one end of the United States to
the other If somebody else had done so!
We are all well. The cold weather
has entirely put a stop to the yellow fe
ver, and no person would now suppose
that such a calamity had over befallen
the city. The synod recommmlid a
day of fasting and prayer. The differ
ence between this place nnd N. Eng
land was this: I?eing recommended by
a body of I'resbeterlan ministers, noua
of the church clergy would Join in It.

usual, and a very small proportion of

While waiting for the train the bride
and bridegroom v. a Iked slowly up and
down the platform.
"1 don't know what this Joking and
guying may have been to you. no
remarked, "but it's death to me. I
never experienced such an ordeal."
"It't perfectly dreadful." she an
swered. "I shall be so glad when we
get away from everybody we know.
"They're actually Impertinent, he
went on. "Why, the very natives"
At this unpmpitlous moment the
wheezy old station master walked up
"Bo you goin to take this train?" he
"It's none of your business!" retorted
the bridegroom indignantly as he guid
ed the bride np the platform, where
they condoled with each other over the
Impertinence of the natives.
Onward came the train, its vapor
curling from afar. It was the last to
their destination that day, an express.
Nearer, nearer It came at full speed.
Then in a moment it whizzed past and
"Why In thunder didn't that train
stop?" yelled the bridegroom. J
"Cos you sed 'twarn't none of my
bizness. I has to signal If that train's
to atop." I
And as the old station master softly
stroked his beard there was a wicked
twinkle in his eye. London Spare Mo

CHINA AND THE POWERS
Sir Robert Hart Points Out Some
of Their Errors.
MISTAKE TO FORTIFY LEGATIONS.
Thiols Effort Should lie Made
Cause the Chinese to Kf-allze That
LrRatlon Ground Is Sacred Chi
nese Question No arrr Solution
ow Than Fie fore the Trouble.
The London Tixpress gives the fol
lowing uecourit of an interview, under
the date of May '21, with Sir Robert
Hart, commissioner of customs iu Chi
na: "I do not think that we are any near
er to a solution today than we were be
fore tne trouble," lie sai.i. "iiie ae
ceptanee of the peace negotiations will
not really advance the situation in any
way, for China Is for the moment u
bay and will sign anything. Nor have
I nt all a high opinion of the terms laid
down by the powers. Some of the con
ditlons are futile and unnecessary, am
much has been omitted which should
have leen Inserted. I look on the pro
posed fortified legation quarter as
very injudicious move. It is a mistake
strategically, politically and socially
"Strategically because. however
strongly such a place may be fortified
the Chinese will be able to capture it If
they wish to; politically because a le
gation Is In theory sacred ground, and
It should be our purpose to make tlu
Chinese understand that It must be so
in practice. We ought to throw the
onus of protecting the legations on the
Chinese? government and t::ke measures
to see that they do protect them. How
can we nave serious political dealings
of any sort with a country whom we
cannot trust even to this extent?
"Socially it is a mistake, because the
presence of such a stronghold in Pe
king will make the Chinamen 'los.
face,' which Is a more serious matter
than some folks think, but above all it
will cause relations between the white
man and the Chinaman to be more
strained and unsatisfactory than ever,
If you are going to fortify the lega
tions, which are in theory a protection
iu themselves, how much more noecS'
sary must it be to fortify the dwelling
places of all other foreigners through
out China who will havu no protec
"Do 30U mean to Imply by this that
the time has come for the foreign
troops to be withdrawn, and that we
should hand back the control cf Pe
king to the Chinese?" "Not at all. for
were Peking to be without foreign
troops today there would uot be a for
"Then how can we establish this rule
of peace and good will aud mutual con
lidenee. which I gather you believe to
"It will be a work of time and of deli
cacy. I think wo sliouiavJ0 carrying on
our negotiations, sometimes try aud
put ourselves iu the Chinaman's shoes
nnd look at things from his point of
view. The failure in the iolicy ot
western nations In dealing with China
is due to the fact that no attempt Is
made to treat the Chinaman as a ra
tional being. If we would deal satis
factorily with him, we must endeavor
to understand him. A Chinaman, like
anybody else, will sign any contract
when he is forced into It, but when
you force a man to follow a policy he
does not believe in that man will be
forever endeavoring to find a means to
circumvent his persecutors. If you look
back at the International dealings with
China, you will find that nearly every
contract that has been made with her
has been foreed upon her against her
People make a great mislake in im
aglnlng that the Chinese are not sens!
tive. They are extremely so, aud the
manner In which a thing Is proposed to
them goes a very long way. People
imagine that Russia Is more unpopular
with the Chinese than are the other
powers, but such is not the case. What
ever territory Russia may have acquir
ed nnd whatever means she may have
adopted In occupying that territory,
her success nt Peking is not wholly due
to China's knowledge of Russia's pow
er or to bribery. Russian otlieials al-
wajs treat the Chinese dignitaries
with great courtesy aud amiability, and
the Chinese like their methods. Only
recently i member of the tsung-li-ya-men
said to me: 'The Russians are so
polite that when they take something
from us they do it so nicely that we
feel we must thauk thetu. Whereas,
even when certain other nations fall iu
with our views they do so in a maimer
which makes it clear that they have no
respect for us.' "
"Has the foreigner improved his po
sition with the Chinese by this display
of strength 1"
"That all depends on bow he makes
use of his temporary advantage. If we
expect that wc. shall suddenly be able
to push the Chinese Into becoming a
progressive race like the Japanese, wo
shall make a great mistake. Not only
would It be impossible for us to niter
the Chiuamau's nature, but. as I have
pointed out elsewhere. It Is essential
that we Ehould be most careful to treat
him very gently in the matter of re
form. Why do we want to make him
do this and do that, and above all why
in the world do we want to arm him
and make a soldier of him?
"We may thank heaven that he was
not a soldier when the recent outbreak
took place, and wo may thank heaven
that It will be somo time before he In
comes one, for on the next occasion
when he attacks the legations he will
succeed. Our endeavor must be, if we
wish to have people live in China, to
put Chinamen In the way of under
standing and appreciating the foreign
er before they become strong enougb
to crush him," rr-3j..

Eczema sets the skin on fire. The acid poisons in
the blood are forced out through, the pores of the skin,
causing intense redness, burning and itching. So terrible
is the itching at times, especially when the body is over
heated, that the almost distracted 6ufferer feels that he
could tear the skin to pieces, and that he must scratch or
go crazy. He knows from experience that this only
makes matters worse, but. made desperate bv the terrible
burning and itching, he is for the time being indifferent to after effects. There
are several forms of Eczema, the moist, or weeping kind, that comes in little pus
tules which discharge a watery, sticky fluid, which dries and peels off in bran-like
6cales. So profuse is the discharge at times that large scabs or crusts form, which
are both painful and troublesome, and not easily removed. Red, disfiguring bumps
and sores are symptoms of Eczema. The dry form usually attacks the head,
hands and feet ; the skin, becoming hard and rough, often cracking open and
bleeding, and attended with much itching. Eczema depends upon a poisoned con
dition of the blood, and local
Mr. Z. Mrno, fscondido, San Dieg-o County,

forcing the poison back, into the blood. S. S. S. antidotes and neutralizes the acid
poisons and drives out of the circulation all impurities and humors, and the pure,
rich blood that is carried to the diseased 6kin quickly allays the inflammation,
opens the clogged up pores, and the skin becomes soft, smooth and ready to perform
its proper functions. To be rid of Eczema von must first rmrifv and build ud tho
