SIDELIGHT ON SYRIAN' LIFE Writr Gives an Insight Into His Life as a Small Boy in That Little Known Country. Th roads were open. Travelers came Into our Tillage. Scarcely a night was the guest house in our court yard unoccupied. I liked to sit with iny father and hi guests iu this room, built after. European style with four larye windows over which in winter oLled paper was passed to keep the cold out. The walls of the guest room were white and on them were hung the choicest rugs brought hack from Kurdistan by my (Grandfather Mirza. There were chairs iu this room. I was very proud that we should own chairs, but I found them iut uncom fortable to sit on. After a few mo ments my legs begun to ache and I slipped down on the cushions. In the alcove of the guyt chamber were dome old manuscripts bound in course leather. They were holy books with Il luminated margins. Among tnein was a Bible in Syrlac. I carefully refrained from touching It. It was too holy. I might perhaps he struck dead for my temerity. Among the travelers that came along the road was Hady, the singer. He was the ugliest man that I had ever Keen, sore-eyed, pock-marked and dirty. But he was very wise. His Ivory han dled dagger iu its silver sheath was so long that it leached from his chest to his hips. My playmates and I would have laughed and jeered at him. per haps, it he had not carried this dag ger. Youel H. Mirza in Asia Maga zine. . V BARGAIN AT $30 A MONTH Chinese Boy With "Exceptional Knowl edge of English" Should Have Been Snapped Up Quickly. The following application for em ployment was received by a Shanghai hong from a student In the Shanghai college : "Nothing is of less importance than the age of a person: nevertheless. It is proper to begin that I am in my tweuty-tirst year. Having a tiring am bition to do some service in the busi ness world, I grasp this opportunity to Insert myself Into the sphere. It Is t'ne that many are now wandering Idly in the market awaiting employ ment. But it Is true to the same ex tent that many of these. II not all. are good for nothing. To take notice upon them, or to put some duty upon them Is to give gun powder to children as a plaything. The danger can be Imag ined. "I am now going to gie some ac count of my personal abilities. It Is not too much to say that my knowl edge of Kngllfih can hardly be repre sented to the full color by .such a little adjective as 'thorough. It Is excep tionally excellent, to he outspoken. As to the art of .typewriting, my hands go on as smoothly as to skate on an Icy river. With uch Intellectual weapons any hard duties can be as easily conquered as an egg shell by a wave. The salary I look for would be $30 a month. "Awaiting your answer earnestly. 1 iu, Sir, ." North China Gs- sette. Robin Is Inventor. The robin lives in trees and part ly on the ground, so that it some times hops, like birds that live in trees, and sometimes walks or runs, like birds that live ou the grouml. The robin U a plucky little fellow, lie will stand up for himself, and refuses to let other birds put upon him. Generally he lives alone some times with a mate, but never do you find robins In flocks. This little bird can claim to be the inventor of pottery. Look at a robin's nest and you will see that it is a clay pot, set into a pile of straw. When a robin has fin ished with a nest, take it and put it ou the fire, having first thoroughly dried it. I.eave it on the fire until all the straws have been burnt, and If It has not broken, you will find that you have a perfectly good earthen pot. Pearson's Weekly. Peculiar Manx Cats. The origin of Manx cats is now at tributed to the arrival of these cats on the Isle of Man from ships belong ing to the Spanish armada that were wrecked there. They were probably brought from Japan or eastern Asia. They are a distinct species with short forelegs, and elevated hindquarters, and differ from other cats somewhat In call, ways, and character. They vary In color. People who have owned them for long periods say they are not good mousers or hunters. In character they are rather similar to a dog, being high ly companionable and having some of the qualities of a guardian, but they are not considered hunters in any sense of the word. Sense of Obligation. "What a wonderful thing it would be If Shakespeare were alive today?" "I wish he were," said Mr. Storm Ington Barnes, earnestly. "I should like to meet him. I'm sure he would be very grateful to me for the manner In which I have interpreted his po etry." Her Present Occupation. "You say that your wife went to col lege before you married her?" "Yes, she did." "And she thought of taking up law, you said?" "Yes; but now she's satisfied to lay it down." COMMISSIONERS' PROCEEDINGS Hays, Kansas, Feb. 6, 1922, 9 A.M.
