It a a line thing to bo from Chlnnatnuo to I'ing Yan?, because PinR-Yacg 1 ou tlie na to Anju. and bejond Anju stmewbere is that elusie front we ejao bttn after for bo ion?. When ther told us at headquarters in Cliinnampo that e would co on to IIiik Yanc at once there w'as gnashinq of teeth because the canteen steamer va not jet arried and she had our horses and bag- f.age.

It seemed w L-e to wait for the stealer Tvith the beasts 8he came In the eienlns. but the hores tvern not landed until the next afternoon. 1caue there were no sampans larse nough for the debarkation of hores ex cept those owned bi the arm. aod the were busy dUcharglrur unnj stores Then when they went at last on land RRaln the poor horses when in Rreut need of rest for a daj or two after their Ions incarceration in the prison of a ship a hold. That made it clear that we could i ot start before the afternoon of tlio next la j. and then only for a short march of the or six miles. Ill English friend, who tsp'fie the force that has made Britain great. halng "Ughed up a foundered twn) in the wil derness of the ocean village back of the ott.ement, declared for an advance, and bean It forthwith on his own. with hU Interpreter riding behind on a ponj lured for the special occasion and equipped with a square Korean pack Kaddle Thereupon Macllugh ond I determined to go on b boat as far as Plog-iang and onco there to orginlz a. pack train of our own and get along, leaving the can teen to get up as oon as It could in its pleasant task of oertaKing the head quarters to which it and wo fiero as signed. Heing transportation by watr. there would, ot course, be no difficult in tak ing all our baKgage. and we Smiled un ward.y at the thought of the interest with which the forceful Englishmen would leiim in I1ng-arg of our arri.al and de parture In pursuit of the front.

"Sampan" A SAJIPAN AT I.ST It was the call to arms, but there were rone to respond. Itange.1 along tho rail ing of the pier there were several lan terrs. which upon investigation, I found te bo svikkoned by JatAjiese of different sizes, ages and conditions of life All. how ever, seemed to be actuated by the s-trre motive, a fenent deire to get on board the 1l!Mon palatial river boat Kclho Maru N'ow and then one of them tried his iULk at calling a sampan, lllgh and Ion, angr and gentle, rough and sharp. ttrcugh .ill tli. 1 range the calls went, and to etch the answer was the same the hocrso gurgle of the river as il swept down under the impulse of a six-knot tide Sempans of all kinds lav within easy range of the call", and occ.ionally from ono or another would come tin encour aging word of response. Then he who had Ltttred It would slick his head out from the c rafortaUe and drv shelter of his lit tle cabin, and taking note of the n'ght and its e'lsreputabie character, dodge hick J again, leaving those who called to to on Under foot there was nothing but water 1 calling as they willed and mud. a, thin. l!my. treacherous mud.

The ship was to sail at midnight. It wis but a Ilvthour run ur the river to ling tang and wc should bo in easilj for a 7 oelock breakfast There were letters to write and some baggage to overhaul and arrangement to bo made with the canteen men for bringing over the horses, 1-0 that it was after S when we were ready to liegin ending the bajzgage down to the pier to go aboard the ship We liad pent out in good time for 1 lot of coolies and they were already hanging around the houo The intcrrreter who had supenised the'r collection took t-tock or tlie bnggago nnd decided thnt It would take a few more men to handle it So he sent cut for more and Mac and I complet ed our work and were rtady to go Then we found that the cool'e-s had al ready gone One of the other Inti-rpreters, who had not jet le-vrned the imjortant fact in an interpreter's life or In anv nodys that too much zeal Is oftentimes worse than too little hid undertakm to save money for his cmrlovcr In trving to beat down the coolies" chan.es for 'lacking the baggage to tho per to 3'- cents ir man. There was no recovering them So ccived that it held a 10-ven note He was to lorger shouting Sampan' " The nature of his call had changeih Instead of an im perious demand there was entreaty and appeal in his voice coupled with promie. lie waved the moncv again and shouted: "Ju j en!

Thtn when there was no reapone to th-it amazing offer, he raided his own hid two. nnd retired out" "'Jul 5 en'" Twelve ven fcr a simpan to a ship' It was unheard of Some of the Japanese waiting along the rail shook heir heids In a wav that plalnlv indicated their opinion that this foreigner was mad Some of them came up and inquired politely If he would tell them hi" nationality, and two or thtee soldiers walked down the pier and looned htm over cruicallv Hut It workel One hoitmnn heard, whose noul was not above the consideration of a f w p-iltn" ven. and his sitnpti drift eel down on the sw.fi tide and came In above the pier In the lint of sampanj that Iiv at nnchor a tew jnnjs out in the "tream there were evidences of more or less excited discns fon Manifestly they "ime to the conclu sion that it wns a Joke or a trip No sane itrai would mak such an offer It was u-elfs to nnwcr it Tlwv ducked bark Into their f our-liv-flv e rabltM and silence again enveloped them.
