XE day in the late fall, three
little leaves were talking to
gether under a big pine tree
"Wasn't that fun to sail through
the air!" exclaimed the oak leaf.
"Fun!" cried the maple from a near
by tree, "I should ay it was. I'd like
rlwrtnjr I to do it acain."
1 "So would 1," echoed the sycamore '
leat, which had blown clear up from
leaves so sympathetically that the pine
leaves felt worse than ever!
So all niuht long the pine leaves
fretted and sighed and begged the
wind to take them for a sail.
And all night long the wind answer
ed back: "Xo, wc can't take you you
arc needed where you are I"
In the morning some people who
lived nearby went walking under the
pines and one said- "Thi is the poor
the creek.
"What are you talking about down! old pine tree that has been whining
there?" asked the green pine leaves; I and fretting all nieht."
"you all seem to be having a lot of i
fun !"
"Fun!" shouted the maple leaf again
in rollicking tones, "indeed, we are!" i
"What's it all about?" said the pine
leaves rather crossly. "Can't you even i
tell a person what vou are talking j
"To be sure we will," said the oak
'I wonder what it wants," said the
other person. "I wish it was happy,
for I love its leaves that stay green
after the otherr have blown away."
"What's that? what's that?" whis
pered the pine leaves, "somebody
loves us even if wc arc just common !
green all the year through!" I
"Think how lonesome those kind
leaf slipping on his dignity which had j people would be," whispered another
pine leaf, "if we had gone off and left
our pine tree all alone!"
And every stiff little pine leaf bris
tled erectly and shone happily in the
morning sunshine.

Clever Arrangement of Furnishings
in Spaces Not Often. Used.
THIS attic room with its whitewash
ed walls and blackened beams In
vites repose. The clever arrange
ment of the spacious drawers under the
enves of tho house on one side, nnd the
closet, which much be delightfully roomy
on the staircase, Is an Idea for these
spaces which usually harbor boxes and
trunks not opened frequently.
The table built around the rough chim
ney Is most artistic and serves very
comfui tubly, as a desk, while the enamel
ed bed, with Its cover of white dimity,
and washstand to match, seems to fit so
happily with the whitewashed walls. The
windows daintily curtained In white com
plete this very unusual room
Cheesecloth, by the way, makes the
most attractive curtains of this type and
miy be bought for as little as seven
tents a yard, while each visit to the
laundry, makes them more sheer and
dainty. Of course, the wide floor boards
and blackened beams of this old attic
have aided a decidedly artistic scheme,
but the genernl Idea will appeal to those
who have wondered what to do with at
tic rooms.

Emperor Declined Offer In Form of
Mnrrlnge Proposal.
In the Journal Aenhl, of Toklo, there
wna rectntl- publhhctl an article pur
Iiortlnjr to ahovv how JnpaTi might have
obtained control of the Havvnllnn lalamlt.
The article wns written by the Jflpnnese
historian, Shtea. An EiirIIsIi transla
tion, made by the Japan Herald, fol
Iowa: On March 10, 1S81, the late Emperor,
who was thon staying at the Aknsaka
palace, received nn application for n
neerct audience. It wns ascertained
that the request was from tho Umperor
u jinwait, wno narl already been re
ceived In nlldlcnco on tho 6th of the
same month and to whose visit the
Umperor had responded at the Shlha
detached pnlaco, which was placed nt
the tllsposnl of the visitor. His majesty
wondered why tho Hawaiian sovereign
had requested a secret audience, and
asked whether he wns accompanied by
a state minister or chamberlain, who
was In his sulto.
Inasmuch as the Hawaiian Kmpcror re
Pllod that ho wns nccompanled by no
body, his majeslv was perplexed, but as
thero won no objection to his receiving
the soverelRti of a treaty country, Ills ma
jesty received him In person In the Im
perial chamber. After both sovereigns
had rxchnnBed compliments and had
shnken hands-(lt Is stated that the Jop
anese Pmptror had never shaken hands
with any foreign sovereign before the
fifth of that month when he for tho first
time shook hands with the Hawaiian Em
peror) the Imperial visitor expressed his
gratitude for the warm treatment extend
ed to him by the court and poeple, nnd
expressed his admiration for shrines, Jap
anrse theatrical performances and other
The speech was Interpreted by n mater
of ceremonies to tho great pleasure of
the Kmpcror. Tho Hawaiian hoverelgn,
continuing, said that tho natives of Ha
waii are decreasing In number, while the
number of foreigners was fast Increasing,
and that If this state of affnlrs should
last longer he could easily conjecturo the
fate of his country. He, therefore, asked
that the Emperor of Japan should liclp
him nnd make efforts to savo his coun
try from ruin. He had no son, but only
a nltce, whom he wished to send to Eng
land to be educated and cause her to
eventually succeed to the throne. Al
though It might bo nn Indiscreet proposal,
he trusted that tho Japanese Emperor
might allow him to wed his niece to a
prlnre of the Iniperlnl blood of Japan.
The Emperor MelJI listened to his dcslro
nnd, after a few moments, stated that he
would give him n leply after deliberate
consideration. The Hawaiian sovereign
said that he had not discussed the matter
even with his state minister or chamber
lain and did not want it Known 10 a.u
one except Marquis Inouye, the Minister
for Foreign Affairs. In November of that
year, the master of ceremonies who acted
as Interpreter was sent to Hawaii as an
envov with an Imperial letter to the
Hawaiian sovereign. Mr. Shiga hns vis
ited Hawaii three times, but could learn
nntlilnir relntlntr to the matter from the
old documents kept In tho Hawaiian Gov
ernment However, according to Mr.
Armstrong, the minister, who died a few
years ago, tho Japanese Emperor declined
the proposal.
During a recent visit, however, Mr.
Shiga learned the truth, and published
the dates, because the sentiment enter
tained by the Hawatlans at that time
hns an Important bearing upon tho pres
ent development of Japan, namely, the
abolition of cxtrn-terrltorlallty In Japan
was first proposed by the Hawaiian Gov
ernment accompanied by other powers,
while ns a result of tho efforts of tho
King of Hawaii, the number of Jnpnne-i
living In that Island now reaches 50,000,
who remit to Japan 12.OCO.000 yen per

Correspondents Never Informed
What Jrlntter Comes Under Ban.
An Idea of the difficulties that are
being experienced by tho Associated
Press nnd the newspapers of tho United
Stales In getting war news may be gath
ered from the letter of a London cor
respondent of ono of tho New York
newspapers which was published In tho
London Times of tho 11th. Some notion
of what tho llrltlsh censorship of tho
press amounts to, nnd how blunderingly
It Is administered, appears In the fol
lowing portions of the complaint made
by thld American correspondent In Lon
don: Alt of us recognize the necessity nnd
desirability of a press censorship at such
a time. Not one of us would wittingly
send any Information the publication of
wheh could be In the slightest degree
detrimental to tho Interests of the coun
try In which we nro guests. Neverthe
less, It Is Impossible longer to disguise
from ourselves tho fact that wo nro
treated as "suspect."
Wo huvo asked for hut received no
uiiui jiimiuu iil wuui is to do cunsiucrett I
a matter that may not bo cabled to
America, wo novo discovered by tho
costly process of experiment that neither
matter which appears In tho London
newspapers after passing the censor, nor
even the olllelal , announcements of the
press bureau nre necessarily available
for publication In America, both being
frequently stopped altogether or muti
lated out of all senso and meaning. This
we can only discover when tho news
papers come over from America nnd
from Information from our American
All tho ordinary relations between
client nnd merchant have been stopped
as between ourselves and tho various
cable compnnlcs. Wo ennnot find out
from the companies whether our mes
sages have been sent or not. At an hour
In the morning when It Is obviously too
late for matter that Is not already on
tho wire to bo In time for publication,
we cannot find out whether any of our
messages are still In hand so that we
may cancel or abbreviate them. Any
request for Information meets with the
reply: "Our office Is In tho hands ot
tho censor; we nro not allowed to an
swer any questions or give any Infor
mation." One finds no more satisfaction In ap
plying to the censorship Itself, My own
expcrlenca Is as follow?: The day after
tho censorship had been established I
called at the War Office nnd sent my rard
with an Inquiry form duly filled up to
the chief ccnior. With very little delay
I was conducted to his ofilce. My card
was taken In, and a gentleman came out
who told me that the chief censor was
engaged. He talked to me vagluely for
a fow minutes In the lobby, but was, re
gretfully, unable to give me any Informa
tion with the slightest degree of preclso
ness beyond the fact that mllltnry move
ments were not to bo reported. More re
cuntly I wished to nsk the censoi n def
inite question, and again called nt the
War Ofilce. I was again conducted to tlvo
door ot his ofilce without delnyr Anoth..
gentleman came out and talked wllh l
for a few minutes In tho lobby. Th!
chief censor was out. He thought hi
would be back In about an hour, but h.
himself, could not denl with tho queslltfr,
I asked a very simple one.
To show that our complaints are not
made without good reason I would like to
give a fow examples of our experiences
I could fill a column with similar haul
penlngs. One day this week I received
a cahle from Now York Informing m.
that nothing nt nil of tho Previous mi,..:
cablo service had got through In tlms
for publication. This means that a mes
sage filed hero at 3:00 p. m. London lima
or 3:30 p. m. Now York time, had not
been delivered nt 8 a. m., London time
tho following morning. A few days prI
vlously I, received a cnble telling me that
of some 5000 words filed here between
9 p. m. and 2 a. m. considerably leg than
one-fourth got through In time tor pub.
A message filed by one of my conferet
on a Wednesday night was not delivered
In New York till tho following Friday
afternoon. Thnt this was not due to the
matter being objectionable Is presumably
proved by the fact that a more fortunate
correspondent, who took tho same story
from tho same English newspaper several
hours later, got It through In time for
publication In tho Thursday morning's
lssuo of his paper. Examples of this
kind nro of dally occurrence.
A morn amnzlng example of tho censor-
snip is me roiiowing: xne olficlal press
bureau Issued nt 9 p. m. on August a
tho account of tho naval nctlon in the
bight of Heligoland, a story that thrilled
England from end to end. Thero Is prob
nbly hnrdly n newspaper In tho 1Tntted
States that would not hnvo published a
speclnl edition for that story. But what
happened to tho Amcrlcnn correspondents
In London? Every man hurried that of
ficial account, Just ns It wns Issued, to
the cablo offices, and the censors np.
pnrently consigned their messages to the
wnste-paper basket, for they have not
arrived In AmcYlcn yet. The American
people would hnvo known nothing of that
splendid feat of the llrltlsh nnvy until the
English newspapers reached them but
for the fact that by somo fortunate accl.
dent for It can only have been nn accl
dent the dispatch of Just ono correspon
dent escaped the censorship and got
through. One may Imagine the astonish
ment In tho olTlcc3 of tho other nevspa.
pers and of the great news agencies!
