THE HERMIT NATION
KOREA, THE BONE OF CONTENTION
BETWEEN RUSSIA AND JAPAN.
Why Both A'atlons Are Anxious) to
Gain n Foothold In the Coontry.
Advantages That Would Accrae to
Them Emperor VI Htans. -
Korea, the real bone of contention be
ttveen Japan and Iiussia, as it was be
tween China and Japan in the war of
1SIH-95, is certain to be the scene of
much fighting if there is to be war in
the far oast. Meanwhile neither of the
threatening nations seems to care what
the Koreans or their emperor thinks of
Korea Is an Asiatic" kingdom lying to
the northeast of China, between the
Yellow and Japan seas. It is about Gin)
ullcs long from north to south, 13."
miles from east to west, with an area
of about 80.UO0 square miles. The pop
ulation of the kingdom, according to
the last government census, is 10,528,
and it possesses several good natu
Iluddhisui grafted on spirit and an
cestor worship may be said to be the
religion of the country. The people
are tall, robust and good looking and
ltIong to Mongolian stork, their lan
guage being Turanian, with the addi
tion of injny Chinese words. They
are idle and unprogressive, so that
the commerce of the country is falling
into the hands of the .Tapuuese and
the Chinese. The soil is fertile, but
only partially cultivated. Itiee, beans
and all kinds of grain are raised; also
tobacco, hemp anil cotton. Gold, cop
per, coal and iron abound.
It is a hermit nation, with a history
said to reach back 4.0W) or 5,000 years,
and from the earliest known times Ko
rea has always protested against the
presence of foreigners in her territory.
This is the country toward which the
fighting men of Japan and Kussia are
reported to be hastening with the ex
cuse of preserving order and protect
ing Korea In its lndejiendence. Should
Uussia obtain control of the Hermit
Kingdom her occupation of Manchuria
would be secure, ami the Japanese
would be kept away from her frontiers.
She would also secure the Ice free

ports sh must have for her great
railway system and the future crops of
Siberia. If Japan can seiz Korea she
will have a foothold on the mainland
of Asia and the only possible outlet for
the immense population and growing
industries of her islands.
It is pretty well understood that Ja
pan is more interested in securing the
possession of Korea than in forcing
Kussia out of Manchuria, so that if
there is to be a conflict the first stage
of it will take place on the Korean pen
insula. It is not imiMssible, however,
that the war vessels of the two powers
will open the fight in an attempt to in
tercept troopships. In a naval war on
the Korean coast Japan would have a
great advantage. She luis surveyed
and charted the vast Korean archipela
go, and its thousands of Islands would
afford a safe refuge for her fleet. No
foreign warship would dare to enter
the narrow and winding channels
known only to the Japanese. The south
ern end of this sea labyrinth is within
close striking distance of Masanipho.
the southern Korean harbor to which
Japan Is sending her troops.
Yi Iliung. the present sovereign of
Korea, is the thirtieth of his dynasty.
The two previous kings had died child
less, and Yl Iliung. then a boy of
twelve, was chosen in 1S4I4 as heir by
the royal council. He assumed full
sovereignty in 1S73. the kingdom hav
ing in the meantime Iioen governed
with croat severity by the regent. YI
Hiung's father, who furiously persecut
: ed the Christian missionaries.
W hen the present ruler assumed con
trol the country logan to le opened up,
and the former regent headed an Insnr
: rectiori aimed against all treaties and
foreigners. An attempt was made in
lRJ to kidnap the king, am' the Japa-
nese minister had to fight r his life
j In a retreat to Chemulpo. In 1SS the
! king only escaped from the relels by
i jumpinz on the back of a eunuch, by
j whom he w:is carried Into the Chinese
j camp outside Seoul. Plots and In
j tricrues soon became matters of com
mon oecurremv. I ins condition cuimi
noted in the murder of the queen a few
years aco. This was attributed to the
Japanese, who wished to rid themselves
of a powerful Kussian Influence. Yi
Iliung was proclaimed emperor in 197.
The emperor cf "ten thousand islands."
as he Is stylet! In his native land. Is de
s,ri.ed as a msn of small stature and
sallow complexion, with an ovaj face,
thin mustache and chin beard and soft.'
dark eyes. His countenance is said to
be singularly gentle and pleasinc. The
crown priiu-e is Yi Tchok. who was
Ixirn In 1S74. The monarchy Is abso
lute, hereditary and divine, and the
emperor is suppoed to be the master of
the lives and property of his subjects.
Important Fart That
Namea Play In Them.
Scotland has a good number of folk
rhymes connected with her old fami
lies, and it may be Interesting to col
lect a few of these. Considerable pride
of family is supposed to be a feature
of the Scotch, and we might expect to
find it reflected in these rhymes. With
regard to some the expectation is real
ized. Thus we have the Berwickshire
Tide what may betide.
Hals shall be laird of Bemerslde.
Somewhat similar to this is:
As long as there's a cock i' the north
There'll be a Fraser in Philorth.
There are many such proverbial say
ings that are not in rhyme and that do
not come under our present heading.
But the Scotch family rhymes are not
always complimentary. Sometimes they
have evidently been inspired ty the
"stranger outside the gates." An ex
ample of this is the following:
From the grepd o' the Campbells,
From the ire o' the Drummonds,
From the prile o' the Grahams,
From the wln.1 o" the Xlurrays,
Gude Lord deliver us.
Though given in rhythmic form, this
is certainly not a rhyme. In another
we have an echo from the old time of
raid and foray:
If ye wi' Montrose gae. ye'll get sick and
If ye wi' Lord Lewis gae. ye'll rob and
Similarly we have a trace of the ref
ormation and a gibe at the Catholic
(Jordons in the next couplet:
The gule. the Gordon and the hoodie
Are the three worst things that Moray
The gule" is a weed that often pes
ters cornfields. A Koxburg rhyme tells
us how the Somervllles came to the
lands of Linton:
The wode laird of Laristone
Slew the worm of Worme's glen
And won all Linton parochine.
Two different rhymes record the vast
power and Influence of theCassilis fam
ily, whose surname was Kennedy. One
The Kennedys wi' all their power
From Cassilis to. Ardstincher tower.
The other states that
'Twven Wigtown and the town o" Ayr,
Portpa trick and the Cruives o Cree,
No man need think for to bide there
Unless he court Saint Kennedye.
Another traditional rhyme gives a
supposed origin of the name of Buc
cleugb. but etymologists are not likely
1o pay serious attention to the deriva
tion: And for the buck thou stoutly brought
To us up that stepp heuch
Thy designntion ever shall
Ee John Scott of Buckscleurh.
The turbulence of the froelooting
Armstrongs inspires another old coup
let: Comes Lidillosdele's peace
When Armstrongs cease.
And a nursery rhyme more suitable for
sinking to southron babies gives a rec
ollection of the Douglas who fought
Hush ye, hush yevlittle pettie.
Hush ye. hush e.Vlr not frt ye.
And the Black Douglas shall not get ye.
Scotia ml has an uuusually rich sup
ply of proverbs, saws, adages and folk
sayings of all kinds, but it is not easy
to discover many more family rhymes
of this nature. Each of these frag
ments has its value, though it Is a val
ue that may be easily overlooked. Per
haps, to adapt tin expression of Words
worth, we have to love them before
they will seeta worthy of our love.
When Will Coal (live Oat?
It appears that there is coal in the
United Kingdom to a depth of 4.000
feet, sufficient at about the present
rate of output to suffice for '.ill years,
but that this period will Ito considera
bly extended, seeing that there is ev
ery probability that mining can be car
ried on to a depth of ". feeL though
at this depth there will not 1 any
thing like the area of coal that there is
at the former limit. And It further
seems probable to expect that this pe
riod of supply may be still further ex
tended by the more e,onoiuical use of
fuel, due to the establishment of cen
tral electrical supply stations and the
utilization of Mond and other gas pro
ducing prcw-esses and of gas driven en
gines as well as other means of obtain
ing a higher percentage of the beat
value of the fuel. Engineering Maga

The impression thnt sugar is bad for
the health, and particularly for the
teeth, is intubated by modern physi
cians, except of course In the case of
those actually diseased with diabetes
or kindred troubles.
Sugar Is nutritious, antiseptic and
fattening. It is a quickly absorbed
food. A colorless solution of sugar and
water has often been used by "fast
er." As for sugar spoiling the teeth, the
finest "grinders" in the world are those
of negroes in Egypt and in our own
southern states, who chew sugar cane.
The ancients had little knowledge
of sugar, but their possession of the
"sweet tooth" is proved by frequent
references of classic authors to honey.
Where the Camel Ia Fonnd.
The camel is found in Arabia. Per
sia. Asia Minor. Afghanistan. l!aiu
chlstan, Mongolia, western China and
northern India, as well a iu Syria.
Turkey, north Africa and parts f
Spain. The camel Is known by the
same root word In nearly all these
lands; not a page scarcely of an Arabic
lexicon but has reference to the cam
el. The language itself, ai-eording to
Hammer Purgstall. knows him by
.V744 names. The only reason why
Scripture is comparatively silent is be
cause the topography of the Holy Land
Is such but in most parts the use cif the
camel Is an impossibility.
A Hard Problem.
A certain debating society Is discuss
ing the question as to which is the an
grier the husband who goes home and
finds that the S!nner Is not ready or
the wife who has dinner ready and
whose husband does not come home.
It Is believed that the debate will end
a a draw.
