Dear Mother: You don't know how much 1 want to see you all and tell you things I can't very well write. How many yeats does it seem to you since I first came to you on a 221 day of Feb ruary Ion ago? This anniversary of my birth I shall commemorate in this foreign land by going back as far as memory will take me, Into the days of my child hiod, and recalling the incidents of my I home life down to the time I left you. VNhen these are all remembered how great will seem the debt of gratitude I owe. I will pay you, all in love, which grows stronger as the years go by. This morning I was up with the dawn. The , sun came up out of the sea with his golden locks resplendent. It Is an Ideal winter morning for Japan. I am happy, even though separated from you all by half the circuit of the globe. A bright tiro is blazing In the grate and the sun Bhlne, through the panes, glvtg a cheer ful glow to the 100m. The outlook from the windows is pleasing; and Kobe 1 truly a beautiful city, facing the sea and backed by the mountains. We have been welcomed with open arms by the English speaking community. We have received and accepted many Invitations to din-- which we must return of course sume account of which I will give you before I close If the letter 'doesn't get too long. Washington's birthday will be celebrated to-night at the American Club house and we are booked to attend. Fred thought we had better go and a new ball drees for the occasion was the resuU. I spoke In my last of a visit to Tokio we were about to make. It was to look after the business of the co mpany, so far as Fred was concerned, and as for me well be thought my geography would be more improved by travel than study and so to k me with him. Shall I reu te to you the lesson I learned? Ou Sun lay morn ing at six with three coolies, three jlorik ibhas and luggage for the journey, w left our hotel lor the railroad station The distance from Kobe to Tokio is 270 miles, which we were seventeen hours lu making. The train dillered vastly from a vestibule on the Lake Shore vr New York Central. After the English fashion the carriages were first, 6ecoud and third clags. The third data Is dreadful; the first-class fairly comfortable, aud the second class about half way between. The eeats In our compartment ran length wloe of the car, were upholstered with leather and heated by lung zinc cabs filled with hot water, and each abuut long enough to accommodate three paiis of leet. These cans were changed about every thirty miles. The trip was made mostly In the dayilme.and we had a good view of the country through which we passed, fur considerably more than half the way. It is densely populated. The small wooden houses, tntertperted with pagodas, were so thickly set in the land scape as to mike the entire country appear like a great scattering village; or rather as suburbs to the larger cities through which we passed ou tue rout. No fences were to be seen aud from the appearance, the farms are as gardens la complete cultivation. The tea fields were set la rows of great regularity and many iY EtowowEK itosoiuiEiy Pure Makes the food more delicious and wholesome ROVAl OAKiNd POWOFR CO., NEW YORK. of them appeared green, even at this time of the year. The rice nelds wer numerous and of a beautiful green, and along the valleys the bamboo cane was growing in vast quantities, and through which we caugnt glimpses of numerous sheets of water between the track and the mountains on either side. The eye was relieved by a constantly changing panorama of mountain aud foot-hill, though the valley and plain were some what monotonous. 1 he train had no din ing car and the food at the stations only Japanese. Against these conditions we had provided on leaving Kobe. Our lunch basket contained a large bottle of coffee, double strength, which we diluted to suit, with hot water furnished on tha train and with our sugar and cream added, our beverage was good. Boast chicken and good sandwiches with our coffee made up our bill of fare and It wa good enough. At the finish a little Jap boy came in at the station with a small stout teapot and two cups all for ten sens tea smoking hot and delicious, and then we were fixed for the rett of the journey. In the same compattment with us were Japanese ladles and a child of the nobility. I was Interested to see the dexterity of this child with her chop sticks. The little lady ate her rice In that way and did not drop a grain, I never saw anything so neatly done. At the stations we seemed to hear carriage wheels rumbling over a pavement, bu on looking out saw It to be the click clacking of wooden shoes. We reached Tokio at 11 p. m. and were met at the station by Mr. Webb whom Fred had no tified. We were convoyed In fcurumas (another name for jinrlklsha) to the Hotel Metropole, which is under line Frecch management. After the long ride a good bed seemed glorious. We entered the breakfast room at eight In the morning and said, "as good as Chicago and almost up to New York." i ho day opened very fine and before looking after his b-Jtlneea matters Fred engaged a guide, a coolie and kuruma, and entrusting me to the guide "niaru maru" (go sight seeing) aud bade me good morning. I was first taken up to Shiba park where are the mortuary temples of the Tukogawa Shoguns. They are con sidered the finest examples of architec ture and decorations in Tokio. Coolie and kuruma remained at the entrance while I entered the threshhold of the temple, removed my shoes and a boy put loose sandals on my feet for the finely woven straw mats and the highly polished wooden floor must not be polluted by the tread of leather and then eutered the temple proper where an old priest, who looked as though he would never smile again, met me and requested me to throw thlr'y sen at a jeweled "hrlne, before he could show me around. I obeyed and then meekly "sllp-shodded" along where the priest led: but as for what he said I simply can't tell you; P was in Fuch a whinlug, dismal tone. I know I thought, "If you thluk you are Impressing mo with the sanctity of these dead Shoguns you are greatly mistaken." I felt like laughing In the old fellow's face, but now I know that was wrong. I didn't realize that 1 was at the tomb of a Japanese Washington perhaps. He finally conducted me to the tomb of Hldetadas the Nl-Dal Shogun who ever he may have been. Here he priest reverently picked a Japanese rln (1-10 of a cent) from the tomb and gave to me as a souvenir. The bronze doors at the en trance of the tomb wer- exquisitely beautiful and the jeweled decorations most elegant, but 1 was really more In terested In the live people with their queer ways and strange garbs than in those dead Shot una. The temples In Uyeno park are also very beautiful and there the Japanese go to pray and give their ill-paid earnings. Some rooms have beautiful carvings and paintings and are papered with gold le if, and con tain Images of gold set with je vela. The next day we visited the mikado's palace. It is surrounded by three moats about a quarter of a mile distant from each othet, and a high stone wall about each moat. The bridge of the third or inner moat Is of marble and beautiful In design aud workmanship and closely guarded by soldier's dressed in the im perial uniform red and black. The last enclosure contains the emperor's private gardens and palaces. In the grounds between the two outer moats are the public gardens, parliamentary building?, department of war and treasury build lnj?, which are of brick and stone and make quite a riae showing. The British and American legation buildings face the palace moats. Tnt3 is all in the heart of the city. The grounds of the emperor are beautiful and his palace, covering several acres are one story wooden build lugs, In architecture similar to the tem ples. None but those who htvo audience with the emperor are permitted to step upon the marble bridge aud I could not enter the Japanese "h'dy of holies." It is said that the elegance of the interior finish of the principal palace la rcarcely surpassed In any country. I hope the time Is not distant when the common people may bahold It. Ths Japanese art still inclinti to pay homige and rev erencs to the emperor and empress that we Americans fail to appreciate. Mrs. Kred Hhlmkh. (Continued next iceek.)
