CHINESE NEW YEAR
Yesterday Was the Beginning
of the Year in China.
THOUGHTS OF CHANGES
What Has Taken Place and
Yesterday more than four hundred mil
lion people -were bowing to one another
and sminply exclaiming, "Gong hay!
Gong hay!" (Happy year! Happy year!")
It was the Chinese New Year, which be
gins February 1G. "Writing of this oc
casion, Joseph Singleton, president of
the New York Chinese Empire Reform
association, says in the St. Louis Re
public: To one who is far from his native land,
the coming of a new years brings many
memories. It matters not from what we
date our chronolagy the birth of Christ
or the, reigns of Emperors these thoughts
of new ami strhngs things come crowd
ing upon us. To me especially come the
thoughts of the changes that are soon to
spread over the vast empire across the
ec, i. They bring to me joy and sadness.
I am joyous to know that my dear coun
try is soon to emerge frim her supersti
tions. And I am sad to know that some
of these memories of the past that have
never been entwined about my heart must
Already live millions of my countrymen
h;vve joined the Chinese Empire Reform
association, and many millions more will
soon follow their lead. This means the
building up of a new China on the edu
cational lines and the commercial meth
ods of the progressive west.
And with the many changes that are to
be brought about will come the change
of that ancient chronology, from which
our ancestors ahave computed time dur
ing the long centuries. It is right that
it should be so. It is inevitable. The
great nations of the earth have a com
mon chronology. China must take her
place wit htbe others.
One does not realize however, what a
great thing it is to change the chronology
of such an old country as China. It is
hard to pull up by the roots ancient
customs that have thrived for thousands
of years. We shall have the new mode of
computing time before long, but we must
also maintain the old chronology for a
matter of history yes, and of sentiment.
How this sentiment is revered Is shown
by the universal celebration of every New
Year. Every city and every town In
China is gay with flags and bunting to
day. If you go to Chinatown in New
York, or to Chinatown in San Francisco,
or into the Chinese quarters in Chicago,
or Philadelphia, or St. Louis, or Pitts
burg any place where Chinamen have
made their homes you will sec the flags
ard the buntin also. You will see them
firing off firecrackers, and feasting and
making merry. In America we shall keep
up the fun for two or three days, but In
China, according to the ancient custom,
it will be continued for one month. In
rrv country New Year is the only general
hr ilday. There is no Sunday. The work
l'.gmen labor seven days in the week.
Thn on the beginning of the New Year
th- y take their holidays for the year, and
th entire nation makes merry for thirty
Our present chronology is reckoned
fr m the reigns of our emperors. Thus,
we are now about passing from the
twenty-ninth year of the reign of the
Emperor Kwong Su, Into the thirtieth,
wjhch will be known as 30 Kwong Su.
The year contains 3S3 days, and hence
Xvi New Year comes on different dates,
according to the Christian chronology.
In China everyone pays his debts on
the last day of the old year that Is if
hf can. But there is no such thing as
bankiuptcy in China. The creditor has a
right to demand his money on the day
b fore New Year; and if he cannot pay
he kteps in hiding on that day. If he
can elude the vigilant creditor who is
searching for him until 12 o'clock at night,
lie may then come out with Impunity, and
with a cheerful nod. greet the man whom
ht .wes, with a merry 'Gong hay! Gong
l.-y!" No one can demand his debt from
him until the last day of the yonr again.
He must pay eventually, however. Ev-e-jbody
pays in China. No bad debts
are there. If a man dies and has not
I aid his debts, his son must pay if he
0 'f iiarnot meet the obligations,
the grandson must pay thorn and so it
n.m tatndy to family until
1 ,f!t i- iraWv wiped out by the ac
ihore aie many odd little customs on
New Year In China that are observed
by Chinamen in this country, too. The
t, -d housewife always cleans up well on
th- last day of the year, in preparation
f.r the next great day, but she Is care
ful to keep the broom out of .sight on the
New Year, or the worst of bad luck would
fall upon lwr roof. Thee hildren look
i rward to the event with much pleas
ure . for on that day they receive many
pr. unfs from the unfailing and respon
VI I classes of people make calls on one
sr nher on New Year. They bring kmg
r- d cards with their names on tlMim.
w!.h they hand to their friends. They
ej '.d the day in visiting, wishing one
ar other good luck, and drinking tea. A
fast during the tay before New Year,
eating only vegetables, but on New Year's
e. They have a great feast, which is con
tinued for two weeks or more. At these
feasts the best part of the food is given
to the elders, and they are- honored
tfc'vughcut them erry-making and have
tr- best teats at the tables.
The custom of sending gifts is quite
central aaton? friends. The usual way
is to send a servant out with a basket
f!;icd with cakes and fruit and little orna
ments He has a list of those whom you
wart to remember. None of the present
It marked. The servant simply calls at
the different houses and presents his bas
ket and the friend takes out what he
pleases. Or perhaps he does cot desire
a gift, and then he gays: "I thank you,
but I do not care for anything." One is
at liberty to do as he pleases In such
cases. He may take all in the basket
or onthing. I wonder how far such a
basket would go m this country. But
even in China, we sometimes have dis
honest servants, and they take what the
friends of the giver do not want. In in
stance? of this kind there Is an old Chin
eec saying: "Long, Tau 'm Shau Jong
Gan Shau. that is "The two end parties
did ont accept, but th middle party (the
dishonest servant) did accept."
One obsejrvance is universal. On New
Year's day you do not hear one profane
or evil word spoken among the many
millions of people in Chin. Not one
wrong doing is committed on that day.
You may go among the most desperate
oX the criminal classes in the large cities
and you will be as safe as if you were in
your own home. No thief in China would
steal on New Year. No murderer in China
would kill on that day. Any breach of
this observance would result In the direst
misfortune for the coming year.
The Chinese places of worship are filled
on New Year. In the country in China
some of these Joss houses are six, seven
and even ten miles distant from the wor
shippers. Now, the women are not al
ways particular during the year to at
tend worship, but on the New 3Tear fhere
is great rivalry among them to see " who
can get tq. the Joss House r$tf To do
this they will get up as early as one
o'clock in. the" morning, and upon arriv
ing there will kow-tow in the.-dlrt, care
fully preserving anl stains on their fore
heads or clothing as marks of their! alert
ness. The men, too, are just as .eager
to get there early.
Not having the kind of newspapers in
China that are in this country it is a
hard thing for a man to get his name In
print. Here you can do It by beating your
wife or getting a corner on gooseberries
or ships. There is but one way to become
known in China, nd that is to be the
most liberal contributor to the donation
parties that visit the Joss houses. Then
your name will head the lists, and you
will become famous. For that Teason the
Josses do a very good business at New
The younger generation of Chinamen
In this country, however,.-are fast losing
their superstitious ideas. This is espec
ially so of the converted Christians. In
San Francisco last year several young
Chniamen went about taking down the red
papers that wero stuck up on the houses,
substituting white paper. Some of the
old-time Chinamen nearly became de
mented over the change, believing that
bad luck would stare them in the ace
for the next twelve months. If one says
anything on New Year that Is ont coasid
ered exactly in accordance with the an
cient customs, he is blamed for all the
misfortune that, befalls the community for
In time all thesec ustoms will be gone
with the other superstitions. "We of the
reform movement will be glad of this, for
it is the very thing that we are striving
to bring about. In the meantime, while
we still have the ancient chronology, and
differ in many other ways, 1 will wish all
my countrymen and all my good Ameri
can friends "Gong hay! Gong hay!"

MISSIONARIES IN DANGER.
Korea, Manchuria and Japan Are in
Much Disturbed State.
Philadelphia. Fb. 16. Relatives and
friends of missionaries now stationed. In
Korea, Manchuria and Japan are alarmed
for their safety. Miss Minerva L. Gut
happel of Germantown and Rev. "Wilbur
C. Swearer of Beaver, Pa., are in Seoul,
and Rev. "W. Arthur Noble and his wife
.of western Pennsylvania are in Ping
Yang. The latest news from any of the
trio was contained in a letter from Mr.
Noble, dated January 1. He wrote:
"All our work is much effected by the
generally disturbed condition of the coun
try. It is dlillcult to keep the Christian
groups out of political questions. "Wo,
are expecting Japanese troops to land
in two or threr" days. They are needed
here to keep the Korean soldiers in order
in case war should be declared."
Rev. S. "W. Thomas, editor of the Phil
adelphia Methodist and a member of the
Methodjst missionary board, said- today
that all missionaries stationed near the
seat of war have been notified to use
their own judgment In remaining or flee
ing from their stations.
Ottawa. Ont., Feb. 16. Secretary of
State Scott, in response to a request to
take steps Immediately for the protection
of missionaries of the Presbyterian
church in Korea, cabled the British min
ister at Seoul, requesting him to protect
the missionaries and churcn property.
The minister. Mr. Jordan, replied as fol
lows: "Telegraphic communication with "Wong
Song interrupted, but 1 sent a message
on 11th to "Won Song to forwarded over
land, recommending that women and
children at Song Ching and Hamm Ham
heung be sent to Wong Song."
New York. Feb. 16. A cable message
from Seoul. Korea, reached the off.ee of
the missionary society of the Methodist
Episcopal church in this city today, an
nouncing the safety of all Methodist mis
sionaries in Korea and the' safe arrival
from Sfiang Hal of Bishop David H.
CLAY WORKING INDUSTRIES.
Year 1902 Was One of Great Prosper
ity in Clay Workings.
Washington, Feb. 16.-A chart showing
in tabular form the quantity and value
of the clay products of the United States
in 1M2 as distributed throughout the sev
eral states was published by the United
States Geological Survey late in 1903. That
is now supplemented by the- publication
of a report entitled. "Statistics of the
Clay-Working Industries in the United
States in 1902." The author of both chart
and repor is Mr. Jefferson Midtileton, who
did the work under the supervision of
Dr. David T. Day, chief of the division
of mining and mineral resources.
The year 1&J2 was one of prosperity in
the clay-workiag industries, the product
reported Increasing from J118,211,iS7 in
to $122,169,531 in 1908, a gain of
$11.157.944. or W. per nU It is signifi
cant, however, that the iirms reporting
in 1G2 numbered but ,d45. as against
fi.O in 1901. the figures showing a de
crease of 376. or 5.56 per cent. This de
crease can be accounted for only by the
fact that many individual arms havo
combined and reported as one plant, as
no plants of importance that reported
In .191. except one In Texats. are delin
quent in 1902. This is further shown by
the fnct that the average vntee of the
ou-.put per plant increased from $17,191 in
lWi to 520.230 In HHB.
A remarkable advance i nthe cost of
labor ami of buthlihr materials began in
1. asMl although it does not seem to
have had, a serious effect on the day
worklnc Industrie during 1902. it fas prob
able that It prevented the value of the
clay product front risintr above SlfQJO.WJ
in UflC. as it normally would have 'done.
The great coal strike of iS-K wouW seam
to have had little direct effect w the
brick and tile industry, although the pot
tery industry in the eastern states, where
considerable anthracite coal is used, may
have suffered to some extent from the
strike. The increased con of fuel which
followed the strike will undoubtedly make
Itself felt In the brick and tile Industry
in increased cost, to the consumer.
One o fthe most significant features of
the year was the successful 'installation
of several plants for the manufacture of
sand -lime brick. At the close of the year
three or four plants of this charaater
were in operation in different sections of
the country, with the prospect of a large
increase in number in the near future,
Ther seems to be no dauht that the man
ufacture of this class of brick will be
successfully carried on in many locahUes.
It is equally, certain that sand-ilrae brick
will not wholly displace clay brick.

GRUBS IN CATTLE.
Press Bulletin No. 131 Issued by Agri
Manhattan, Feb. 16. Recent observa
tions made and reports received by this
department Indicate that warbles or
grubs in cattle arc unusually prevalent.
Irt. some Instances they are reported to
have caused the death of young cattle.
Warbles or grub3 are the larval form
of the ox bot-fly or heel-fly (Hypoderma
llneata). The grubs or warbles aren o
tlccd as little lumps, or bunches just be
neath the skin of the back. Directly over
each warble there is a small pore or open
ing in the skin through which the grub
Life History. The adult heel-fly or
warble-fly Is a little larger than the com
mon house-lly. In the laater part of the
summer she deposits her eggs upon the
hair of cattle In the region of the heels.
The presence of the files among cattle
causes much annoyance. The animal
licks the part and the larvae are taken In
to the mouth. From the throat or gullet
the small larvae bore their way through
the tissues until they locate beneath the
skin of the back, where they Increase In
size quite rapidly so that the lumps are
large enough to be noticed by the latter
part of December or early January. In
February or March these larvae or grubs
work their way out through the small
hole in the skin, fall to the ground, bur
row into dirt or litter, pupate, and some
weeks later transform Into adult files.
In 1S05 it was estimated that 60 per cent
of the cattle in Kansas were affected with
warbles, and the financial loss by dam
aged hides was estimated for the United
States at from fifty to sixty million dol
lars. Grubby hides are usually "docked"
Warbles are more prevalent In the
western part of the state and attack
young animals more severely than older
As the adult files do uot travel far. a
cattle owner can free his herd pretty
well from these .pests by treating them
at this season of the year. If other cattle
in the immediate vicinity are affected,
the adult files will travel far enough to
infest neighboring cattle. All cattle own
ers should unite to destroy this pest.
Treatment. Treatment should begin as
soon as the warbles arc noticed upon the
animals' backs. Most of the warbles or
grubs can be destroyed by putting tur
pentine, kerosene, crude petroleum or
mercurial ointment In or en the opening
through the skin directly over the war
ble. If the opening is very small, it
should be enlarged by using a smooth,
pointed stick. A machinist's oil can hav
ing a slender nozzle furnishes an excel
lent method ow applying the medicine. By
running the cattle through a chute they
can be treated quite rapidly. They should
be examined in about ten days, and any
that escape the first treatment should be
destroyed by a second: or better, squeezed
out ami crushed; or they can b crushed
beneath the skin by pinching the lump,
or killed by Inserting a pointed wire or
large blunt-pointed needle. It I? import
ant that any grub squeezed out or escap
ing naturally should be destroyed or they
will transform into adult files.
SKI RUNNING IN ENGLAND.
Ski running may yet become familiar in
England, for the nrat English book on the
subject has appeared, and a ski club for
Great Britain was formed last May.
The pioneer of modem ski running is

at Ulenfeld. He got sorae Norwegian
patterns for use In winter and experi
mented with- them for sir years; at the
end he produced the Alpine or Lillenfeld
ski. which is easier to put on and can
be fitted to any boots.
