persons arc employed in the produc
tion of rugs of all kinds of material ,
silk , sheep's wool , camel's wool , felt ,
jute , hemp , ynk hair , and oven.tho
hair of the cow. The industry re
cently has been mlrouced in several
of the industrial schools for the em
ployment of the poor. The sillc car
pets are like those from India , Tur-
kdy or Tersia so far as colors and
quality of material arc concerned ,
but they are vastly different in de
sign , unless a pattern from abroad
has been submitted for copying. The
foreign designs are faithfully repro
duced when furnished. The wool
rugs are used throughout China ,
Japan and the orient. They are also
exported to Europe. The popular
Chinese patterns for carpets * are
floral , geometrical and dragon do-
signs. The carpets are fully half an
inch thick. The Chinese carpet in
dustry originated in saddle cloths
and trappings made for horses used
in processions and by Chinese of
high rank , developing into the rug
and carpet crafts on the advent of
the foreigner. The saddle blankets
still are used and often are highly
finished in the most elaborate de
signs and patterns.

each applicant's qualifications for
rapid , assimilative reading he in *
quired carefully into his mathemat
ical acquirements. Finally he chose
the man who was most skillful at
untangling arithmetical problems.
"On the surface that seems an uu-
iccessary accomplishment in this
case , " he said , "but experience has
taught me that anybody who is ex
pert in figures can read any kind of
iterature put before him with great
er accuracy and speed than tbe per

IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
Among those offering to enlist in
the army last year it was found that
27,921 unskilled men came forward ,
against i3,02 ; skilled tradesmen , in
addition to 15,2315 men classified
separately , such as fishermen , boat
men , stewards , barmen and clerks.
About one-fourth of each category
was rejected , the unskilled having a
slight advantage in the numbers
passing. In the army Englishmen
predominate ; there are 178,240 ,
against 3,588 Welshmen , 18,129

The "Alpine Journal" contains a
full account of the recent ascent of
Kabru , near Darjeeling , by two Nor

the peak , according to the Indian
survey measurements , is 24,015 feet.
The oncoming of darkness turned
the climbers back before they could
quite reach the top ; but they report
that they pitched their highest

in attaining an elevation of "about
23,900 feet. " This , so far as is
