COULD NOT KEEP THEM OUT. flow Three I'ertlnacloaa Chlaamea Managed to Gala Entrance to the TraaiTaal. During the time when the alien e pulsion law was in force in theTrant vaal three Chinamen arrived at tie lit tle boruer town of Yolksrust. The Transvaal authorities had cot had much experience with Chinamen up to this, but they were Sot taken with tie appearance of the newcomers and promptly put them back over the Natal border, says 'the London News. For the next three weeks the police at dif ferent points of the line were engagid in returning the Chinamen to the col ony. They were dragged cut of freight cars, securely stowed away under the tarpauJin covers; were rooted out of. tram-port wagons journeying along the main roat".; were picked out of rar.gs of Kaffirs, with their faces dark- eced so as to resemble their compan ions. 'traveling in cattle trucks. The ChinSmen retained all their normal cheerfulness. After a time the China men were seen no more in these parti and they "passed out of the minou of the officials. Cut later on three strange Chinamen were unearthed in Jepper- town doing a flourishing business among the Kaffirs, but the alien law was just then being quashed and they were allowed to abirV where they were. The incident supplies a curious illu tration of the yellow man's persist ence. TAKE CATS FOR PASSENGERS. Charleiton (S. C.) Trolley Can Carry I ndeslrrd Fellnra Off to Seek fw Iloiuea. It is pretty weil known that the life of a street car conductor is not one con tinuous round of pleasure. Some rf their trials are enough to make a stoic cast philosophy to the (fogs and rise up and slay innocent women and chil dren. The public imposes upcm them with the cheerful conviction that the conductors eannot help themselves, and if a request is rot granted a com plaint of ome kind or other is prompt ly lodgeii at headquarters.

CONTROLLING SYMPATHY. iVe Hare Xo More RIaht to Be Prodi, sal with It Titan with Oar Fortann. It is commonly 6aid that no man or ivoman can be perfectly happy in this worm, ir ir alUhat was necessary to make one happy fell to his or her lot, unnappiness would creep in through 6eeing the Buffering and serrow of others, says A. S. Atkinson, M. D.. in nomans Home lompanion. This sympathy with the wond of people around us serves us many valuable lessons, and we would not eliminate it from our lives if we could. But we have no more right to b prodigal with our sympathies and emotions than we have with our fortunes. It ii as much our duty to hold our powers of sympathizing with others under control as it is to curtail our passions. Excessive expenditure of nervous en ergy for others is a crime upon oui own natures, and we have no au thority to justify us in its commission. Vet the man or woman who sees only tbe gloomy side of life will waste en rgy and emotions in this way if there is no other channel through which they can be expended for self. A clear comprehension of the sufferings In the world is necessary for our well twing, but undue brooding or emotion. al sympathy over them will accom plish nothing but evil. We merely, add our own burden without lighten eg in any degres whatsoever that of ht world. Ererr Girl Should Learn the Alt.
