though even then Japan claimed juisl.;.
diction over the country. But Korea
eni.joyed her freedom only a short
tilne a all indepeident nation.
It was on August 29, 1918, flint
Japan formally annexed Korea, as fin
Integral part of the kingdom. Tite
old nam1e was chniged to Chosen. In
Japanese this name is (1lvided Into two
syllables-Cho Sen. This means "Tie
1Land( of the Morning Calm."
Perhaps no other name would better
stilt the land which was once called
the Ilermit kingdom, for its people
are indeed very calm. So calm have
they been considered by Japan that it
isn't generally known there was some
opposition to the annexation of the
kingdom, and that a republic was
forimed and a president elected. The
president, it Is said, was compelled to
flee the country.
Man1y are the strainge customns of
this ol(1 little land. At one time the
king ordered all men to wear hrond
brimmedl hats made of a imaterlial so
brittle the men couldn't "get their
hends together" without nicking their
hats. And so. the story runs con
spiracy was prevented.
But the nileposts of Chosen are not
made of brittle material. They are
painstakingly hewn out of wood, ind
are set ip along the highways. carved
with Chosen characters, which give
the traveler the Information he re
quires for a safe jourtley.
To the eyes of' mnmy a western
traveler these nilleposts look more like
hunges intended to frighten than
soothingly to inform. Of course, the
partieular demon that should be pla
lted in each spot Is properly pla
cated by the posts. Ani so these
Chosen iilleposts serve the double
piirjimiiwe of informing liman travelcrs
anld 1nriniii iig off those demons who
might trouble the highway. - '.iimple
