This means practically the whole Irish dele ' gation in Parliament, since most of the j Sinn Feiners are in jail. Besides, the ; Sinn Fein isn't wet." Meanwhile the country roars with : laughter at "Pussyfoot" jokes, which are becoming as common as Ford es, and retases to take the 1 erophet of universal prohibition seri? ously. But Johnson doesn't care. "Soi letimes," he says, "they get abn . but on the whole they are mighty friendly.

Robbed and Ful Aboard Ship Without a Chance to Send Word to His Family William Pedlar, an American citizen, related yesterday in the law office of Alfred J. Talley. Assistant District Attorney, his adventures as a resident of Dublin. Mr. Talley submitted proof of Pedlar':? citizenship yesterday to the immigration authorities at Ellis Island end obtained th'* release of his client, who had arrived on the Maurctania as :i deportee from England. Pedlar is a native Irishman, but was naturalized in Philadelphia in 1915. His wife, a New York girl of Irish descent, and their three children, the ?rldest seven, are still i?ji Ireland. Pe?l lar was deported without seeing them. They went to Dunlin in 1916, and ! Pedlar started a stationery shop there. After the Easter revolt in that yenr Pedlar was arrosrvd, with about 1,000 I others. He declared that ho never j knew what tho charge wan against "him and that tho conditions of his incar I ccration were most onerous. He was j released in June, 191??, without having I had a hearing, he said. Family Given No News "On my release," he said, "I went ? back to my family. They had not. been ? informed of what hod become of me. i I found my business gone to pieces, but I I started in all over again." j Inside of four week.; he was arrested , ?.gain, he said, to be released in May, I 1917. Pedlar made no mention i*i his ? tale of what evidence there might havi i been against him or what the charge might have been on either of the first ? two occasions.

Corea Has Ancient City Few white men have been fortunate enough to wander inland, in Corea as far as the ancient city of Musan. This city, with its grim old walls bearing! five centuries of history, lies on the very edge of Corea. To enter it is like stepping backward to another world, into a storv of the Arabian Nights. Durirur the Russo-Japanese W'ar sev eral Russians took refuge there, and since then half a dozen foreigners have discovered it. but, except for these stragglers, Musan lies unknown to t.h<* Western World. The great central palace, or reception hall of the city, remains intact, and ciose by, in partial ruins, is the temple gue t house. Toe smaller public buildings, the grate-, the watch towers and even the walls them selves have th-ir own particular story to tell of Musan's interesting past, but few people know it. I'eople who have hunted tig? the vicinity of Musan say thi ana are more beautiful than their relatives of India or the Malay Peninsula. These beauties range among the bitterly cold mountains of China, Corea and Man? churia, and far into Siberia. Detroit News. Field Day Aboard Ship For Albert and Queen On Board the U. S. S.
