POEMS BY MUTSUHIT0,
EMPEROR OF JAPAN
Arthur Lloyd in Independent.
Tbe following translations of poems
by his majesty, tbe originals of which
appeared In tbe Kokumln Shimbun for
Nor. 7, seem to have been composed,
at different periods. No. 1 evidently
was written before the war, when the
emperor saw himself surrounded by
rnlnous signs ' of a coming conflict.
No. 2 dates from the actual commence
ment of the war, when all peaceable
means bad been exhausted and the
declaration of war become Inevitable.
No. 3 Is what we see In Japan today.
Only the other day I passed a gang of
women taking their husbands' and
brothers places In tbe building of a
bridge. Ills majesty has every reason
to be proud of tbe ready self sacrific
ing spirit of his people:
My heart's at peace with all. and fain
Live, as I love. In lifelong amity.
And yet the stormclouds lower, the ris

STORIES OF MRS. GILBERT
IIow the Famous Actress Once Came
to John Drew's Hraeir,
There is a pretty story told of the
late Mrs. Anne Hartley Gilbert, Amer
ica's famous old actress, on one of her
visits to San Francisco. It was John
Drew's last season with Daly, when he
had already announced his Intention to
star and Daly was making things as
disagreeable as possible for him. He
allowed biui to take no culls for him
self, no matter what the audience
wanted. On bis last night in San
Francisco Daly had left for tbe east.
The audience called the curtain up
again and again, and it was very evi
dent that it was Drew they wanted, to
clap a farewell to him, and they would
not be satisfied with tbe repeated re
turns of the whole company. But Daly
was Implicitly obeyed, whether he was
present or not, and Drew must have
somebody to return with him. Finally
Mrs. Gilbert offered herself, hastily
buttoning her dress, which she had
loosened preparatory for dressing for
the next act. She hurried upon the
stage with him, then, patting his hand
in view of tbe audience, withdrew and
left him alone to bis curtain call, his
"When he met me In tbe wings he
didn't say anything about what I had
done, but he stooped and kissed me
and said, 'God bless you, grandma.' "
Mrs. Gilbert treasured some Cali
fornia flowers that she pressed long
ago. She got them just as she was
leaving the Pacific coast after one of
Daly's visits there. The train stopped
in a grimy spot, a desolate bit of the
California where one cabin was the
only building in sight. Tbe miner sat
at his door and near him. Inside, was
a table on which stood a bunch of gor
geous California wild flowers.
They made the only bright spot in
the whole dingy picture, and every
body In the car noticed them. Half a
dozen pretty women poked their beads
out of as many windows and begged
for them. They were nil young, all
charming.. In fact they were some of
Daly's stage beauties. P.nt the deso
late miner was proof against their
wiles, far more than any Johnnie who
should " be better ' used to them. He
shook his head' stolidly.
As the train pulled out, the window
where Mrs. Gilbert snt passed his door.
She nodded and smiled as she passed.
To her surprise- b?' sprang from his
seat, seizing tbe flowers as he did so.
With great strides he ran after tho
train, reaching it just iq time to fling
the flowers iu at the rear door.
"They're for the old lady," he cried.
Steel Car For Erie nail road.
The Erie Railroad company has con
structed an improved baggage car of
steel, says tbe New York Tribune. It
has four sliding doors for unloading si
multaneously, and thus delays will be
averted In the departure of trains.
The car is also built for strength and
to prevent telescoping in case of acci
dent. The first of these cars was re
cently shown in the yard at Jersey
City and 'attracted considerable atten
tion. "It looks like a battleship," was
a frequent comment. Tbe Erie com
pany bad the car built as an experi
ment, which, it is believed, will prove
successful. The car Is absolutely non
inflammable and should prove noncol
lapsible, say the Erie officials. It is the
Intention of tbe company to construct
Its passenger coaches of similar ma
