'ollows of a visit to a local chief:
"The datto, or chief, rents the land to

I'he sultan gets rent from the dattos;

Nina, the dutto of Patikolo, where the
latto got up a scrap four years ago and
licked the spots out of the sultan.
"This Joka Nina I had the pleasure of
visiting; he Is a fine-looking man; a
lithe, blithe savage indeed. 'Look out
for him,' says Shuck to me; 'he is a
first-rate man. If he is going to kill
you he'll say so.' With this pleasant
and assuring description I adjourned
with an allegretto beat of heart along
the shore from Jolo, five miles, and
came to where the datto lived.
"Under the great tree of Patikolo the
country folk held market day. The
Iatto's house is built over the waters.
IIHe received me kindly, in his bare feet,
and placed for edification before us

said, to have the Americans near him.
lie thought they would make good
servants and traders. Yes, thought I,
but, shades of Jefferson and the true
American Washington, the countrymen
of Lincoln serving a half nude savage!
The thought wrung laughter.
"The dutto had a fine little boy. IIe
wanted me to take a picture of him.
I did so; then his excellency wanted the
picture. I explained I would put it on
paper at Manila. IIe said: 'Why not
now?' I looked; on the wall were 25
remington rifles and one mauser car

John (Liver Eating) Johnson de
parted Saturday for California where
he has permission to enter the soldiers
home. The health of the old scout
has been failing very rapidly for the
past year, and his once powerful phy
shique is not recognized now in the
feeble and broken-down old manm, who
boarded Saturday's train. Yet there

Is at a premium.
It was chiefly as a raconteur of the
brave deeds of the past that the pres
eat generation knows the Liver Eater
and his reminiscences were told with
becoming modesty. From the com
mencement of this town Johnson has
made his homne here. And It was
plain to see that he was most reluc
tant to leave it, even when his better
judgment co:nvinced him against his
will that it was the part of wisdotli
to accept the provision made for t he
inationi's helroes. Ilndeet'd It is not a

Simplletty and Cordiallty Are Always
the Truest Itsms of Good
Men and women who by contact or
travel know the world's best society
need notbe told that simplicity and gra
ciousness are the invariable character
istic of the highest breeding. If this
fact could only reach the minds of that
class of people who talk of "exclusive
ness," of "four hundreds," of the "vul
garity of trade," of not knowing any
oneoutsideof "our set," what a grateful
social change would be wrought. That
cold stare of the would-be elect is but
the expression of an under-bred, pov
erty-stricken soul: What is "exclusive
ness?" It is that human policy which
shuts individuals off from the enjoy
ment of their kind, by which society
gains, since an inharmonious element
is thereby removed. How pathetic is
the isolation of the determined aristo
crat, especially In a small town where,
other stirring interest lacking, human
relations mean so much. Could even a
Divine microscope detect the difference
between the naked souls of a banker's
and a grocer's wife? How infinitely
stupid it is to draw lines in small places
instead of honestly enjoying all there
is to enjoy. If one has had superiorad
vantages, is there no obligation to give
pleasure, to make sunshine in others'
lives because of that good fortune? The
time is at hand when intellihgence
will be too widespread, progress to a
more vigorous plane of thinking too
real to admit of men and women look
ing askance at one another to make
mental invoice of social, financial or
other probabilities. Will it not soon
penetrate the dullest brain that wealth,
rank or leadership are powerless as
shields against unhappiness, or as
props to mental, moral or physical de
ficiencies; that there is positively nc
honest or sensible basis for judging in
dividuals except individuality. -Ella
