The volume or literature that nas been put
forth about Tibet during dM last few years has
a-ne tar to dispel the atmosphere of mystery
t v at bae for the last two or three centuries en
velcpefl Ckßt forbidden land. Yet there la still
Bttcfc that - ? Imperfectly understood In regard
to th* cour.-ry. of which not the least Important
re outsiders are Its commercial possibilities. Its
■"aiistle trade routes, and its effectiveness as
j, u fler etate between India, and Russia. These
. n the considerations kept principally In view
ty Colonel Koldlch in his present work, which
v la its rr.cin plan, a review of the history,
rtccrfcphr ar -£ physiology of Tibet as revealed
to tie records of the adventurous explorers of
tae plateau I ■ to *-""• time cf the recent British
tsvasica. supplemented by the results of the
-grely sf:e~t!!V expeditions which were the out
me * the Tounghusband mlaslon. The au
thor* conclusions are that the plateau does not
tflon! a satisfactory passage for an Invading
iT!r r. -that it has a trade capable of profitable
aasatopn " and that the most convenient route
, p India will undoubtedly be one that will
j^low the course of the Brahmaputra. Al
ticsjh tkls is the only entrance that has not
ttd consecutively explored, Sir Thomas is
i[,nnii that It does not present difficulties

BOtissllon In later days by the discovery that

Ha:k blanket, works on his hands and knees,

Titxtan ant^lore. At a little distance a group
cf these surface ir^lners resembles nothing so
nnch as a colony of huge ants. It la even the
eastern of tne men to sleep In this curious atti

Not the least entertaining and valuable chap

When It became necessary to adopt a standard
for the new United States the only change was
the saltttltnttaD^ for the subjoined crosses of St.
George anU Sti Andrew on the canton, of the
thirteen stars, "representing a new constella
tion." After the admission of Kentucky and
Vermont Into the Union, for twenty three years
th« flag contained fifteen stripes and fifteen
stars, and It was this flag that Inspired Francis
Scott Key to write "The Star Spangled Ban
ner." it was not until ISIS that the present flag
was adopted, with its thirteen stripes and one
star for each state. The Stars and Stripes were
first used In battle at Fort Stanwlx. on August
2, 1777. the ensign being made of a white shirt,
a red petticoat and Abraham Swartwout's blue
cloak. To Paul Jones belongs the honor of first
raising the Stars and Stripes over an American
man-of-war, and of receiving a salute to them
from a foreign power. The first public school
to fly the United States flag appears to have been
the one at Catamount Hill, Massachusetts In
May, ISI2.
The origin of the uma of "Old Glory" as
applied to the flag has been carefully Investi
gated by the author, and he glvea the credit to
Captain "William Driver, of the brlgantine
Charles Doggett. A huge American flag was
presented to him when Be sailed from 6alem
In 1831 to return the reformed mutineers of tht
Prltlsh ship Bounty to Pltcalm Island from
Tahiti, where they had been temporarily re
:r.ove<L He appears to have called this flag "Old
GNory" at the time. In 1862 he was living at
Nashville, and had concealed the flag from the
Confederates by sewing It Into his bedqullt.
When the city was taken by the Union troops,
the old sea captain unripped bis country's colors
from his coverlet and It was raised over the State
Capitol In dace of th» smaller flag of the 6th
Ohio Regiment. In a letter written by Captain
Driver on February 27. 18U2. recounting the In
cident, he several times alludes to his old ship's
Sag as "CM Glory." It is now In the Easex In
stitute, at Salem. Th« author devotes consider
able space to the history of the Confederate flag,
and gives a chapter to the Barbara Frietchie In
eldflaft Mrs. E. D. E. N. South-worth gave to
Whlttler the story on which he wrote his famous
poeni. A youneer woman, however, said to have
teen Miss Mary Quantrell. was the one who
waved her flag In the face of the Confederates.
Aunt Frt^tchle appears to have postponed her
own patriotic demonstration until the arrival of
the Northern soldiers under General Reno, al
though she is credited with having driven some
of the retreating Southerners from her dooryard
with her cane and "vigorous language."

"How many guests this house receives."
Said I, with wondering mind;
"As if In dream these children go
In by that hospitable door which loaves
Not one refused behind.
"Its windows glimmer clear and cold.
Llghtless and comfortless;
Untended In Its garden grow
Darnel and brier, and gnarled and old
Yew trees and cypresses.
"But plain It Is ti> sea how full
Of joy these children are.
Did ever yet so bright a hue
Burn clear In cheeks so beautiful
Or eyes outshine a star?
"And ret what tears each mother shower?!
How lamentable a cry
Breaks from the heart when each hath ja-^'l
Into those still and shadowy bowers
"Whence cometh no reply!
"Yet never saw I calmer night
Than arches o'er their peace;
Starless and still the dark leaves harp
"Where sings the cad bird out of sight
Beauteous in loneliness . . ."
Dark stood that house; solitary
Rose its unecholng wall;
Faint with faint hope Love seemed to cry
Out of its vast obscurity:
Love's— no voice at all.

"The United States," said President Storey, "has
the right under the Platt amendment to Interfere

since when has President Roosevelt become the

In his annual report Secretary Winslow declared
