The English have
owned a landing place here since 1$00,
but their territory was greatly en
larged by the lease of 1S08, and a set
tlement has already arisen ou the
mainland which has many of t he char
acteristics of an up to date community.
Hongkong itself has a population of
about 30O.00O, mostly Chinese, but a
large proportion of the Chinese even
are British subjects by right of birth.
The colony is governed by officials sent
out from England and by minor offi
cers chosen by the residents of the col
ony. The present governor is Sir
Matthew Nathan. Peing the navnl de

Is the rendezvous for British vessels of
war, many of which are usually, sta
tioned in the harbor, while war vessels
of other nations may frequently be
seen there. The shipping iuterests of
Hongkong are very extensive. No port
on the globe has a larger export trade
and In point of tonnage that of Hong
kong ranks third. 'Victoria, though it
has features characteristic of a t'hinese
cit. is in many respects a modern
town in appearance, with excellent
schools, churches, hospitals and other
public institutions. The United States
consulate, which Is shown in the pic
ture, is an uuintposing house in the
lower part of the city, and the consul
general usually makes his home iu a
district upon the hillsides beyond.
The loss of life among the natives at
the time Of the typhoon at Hongkong
was especially large in consequence
Of the fact that the families of the
boatmen are accustomed to live upon
h sampans, or native ships. The
harbor is inclosed ou all sides by high
hills and is regarded as one of the
finest in the world. Yet. as recent ex
perience shows, it is not free from an
occasional visitation by the dreaded
typhoon. It has an area of about ten
square miles. The lower levels of
the city of Victoria are covered by
a dense mass of Chinese shops and
tenements, while beyond these, rising
tier upon tier on the hills above, are
the homes of foreign residents. Peo
ple from England and America who
reach Hongkong se the spires of
Churches before they leave ship and
see British and American fbitjs waving
fn the breeze, and it is not unusual to
hear from them the expression "Home
Kgain." 1 hough they may be 10.O00
miles from their hearthstones.
The Chinese characters representing
the name of the island of Hongkong
may be rend to signify either "good
harbor" or "pleasant streams.' From
April until October the climate is very
oppressive, and people wear flie light
est kind of clothing. Persons of wealth
generally send their families to the
mountains of Japan until the worst
part of the hot season Is over.

The Tragic Confession of a Spinster, Who,
Realizes That No Fame or Wealth Can
Compensate for the Solitude of Her Life.
In this article the author, whose name for obvious
reasons we are not at liberty' to disclose, drops for
once the mask which she in common with other
"Bachelor Maids," is accustomed to turn to the world.
Though no longer young, she frankly says she longs
for the companionship of a husband and the care of
children. The circumstances which have kept from
her the happiness which these blessings bring are
stated with the same directness which characterizes
the whole article. It is the life-story of a "successful"
woman, a drama of real life in which the last act is
