The satisfactory mounting of photo graphs is s troublesome operation, and the following suggestion from a con tributor to The Outlook may be of assist ance to amateurs: "I have found a method by Vfhioh a photograph or en graving can be mounted on the thinnest paper without curling or wrinkling. If the pioture is a photograph, it should be ironed out smooth with a hot iron and then trimmed. Mix a little gum arabio in hot water so as to make a rather thick mucilage. Place the pio ture on the page in position and mark jnat inside the corners. - Remove the pioture and take some of the muoilage on a ruling pen and draw a heavy line of muoilage from one point to another, aoas to make aline of muoilage all around the place where the picture is to be. As soon as the muoilage is sticky put the pioture in place and a book over it to keep It flat When dry, you will have a smooth mount that will not BOrL" .-Trc. -- THE MARCH ON PEKING- One Who Thinks It Will Be by Way of Shan Hal Kwanu TALK OF PEACE IS SOW H0NSENSE JmpKncn Will Hot DIiohm Taras Until Thajr Ar In.ld of h Clljr of Fa king, and Thar It Ma Doubt But They Will Beach Thai. New Yobk, February 13. Harold Frederick has cabled from London to the Times the following : " I have from an absolutely informed quarter an interesting view of the state of affairs in the far East. Corea's au tonomy is assnrred, Manchuria is vir tually in Japanese hands, and they are already building additional fortifications at Port Arthur to turn that place into a Japanese Gibraltar. Now that Wei Hal Wei is captured and the Chinese fleet destroyed nothing remains except to ad-, vance upon Peking. This will certainly be done by way of Shan Hal Kwan. It is eurious nothing has yet been said about the Chinese works and forces there, where the next great engagement must be. "All talk of peace now is nonsense. The Japanese will not talk about it until they are in Peking. Otherwise the vast bulk of the Chinese people would never know that there had been a war, and the Japanese would have in a few years to do their work all over again. Von Hanneken haa been toiling to fortify Shan Hai Kwan for months, but there is no doubt that the Japanese will take it." '. . , SAID TO HAVE BEER OBDEBEO BACK. , Lohdoh, February 13.

Los Angeles, Cel., February 13. Judge Roes of the United States circuit court to-day handed down a lengthy opinion in the case of Jamee Gilbert Fos ter vs. the Bear Yalley Irrigation Com-" pany, in which he decided in favor of the plaintiff, who represented about 4,000 persons in and about Redlands, Cal., who were holders of class "A" cer tificates of the Bear Valley Land & Wa ter Company, of whom the defendant is successor in interest.
