A Trade Introduction:--
Mr. Ripsaw, cordially: Dr. File, shake
hands with my dear friend, Mr. Handsaw, who is feeling a trifle
dull. You made such a good job of my teeth that I thought I
would bring him up to have his lixed.
The teeth on the saws we sell do not need attention for some
time after you get them; they are all sharpened and set.

PEKING, Dec. 14 The numerous
difficulties having been finally over
come, the Empress Dowager today
granted an audience to the wives of xhe
foreign Ambassadors and Ministers.
The ladies assembled at the British Le
gation and proceeded to the palace. At
the entrance to its precincts a group of
gorgeously-arrayed Mandarins met
them and conducted them to the great
hall, from which several Chinese ladies
conducted them to the audience cham
ber. The Empress Dowager was seated
upon a dais behind tables decorated
with chrysanthemums, with the Em
peror at her left hand.
Lady Claude Macdonald read a
speech in English, expressing her
pleasure and that of the other ladies
at having an opportunity to tender
their congratulations to the Empress
Dowager on her birthday, and also ex
pressing the hope that their step might
be followed by the ladies of China.
The Empress Dowager having re
turned thanks, the ladies mounted the
dais and bowed before her and the Em
peror. Her Majesty then presented
each with a ring of pearl and gold,
which she herself placed upon the re
cipient's finger, after which the foreign
ladies retired tff an adjoining hall,
where a sumptuous Chinese luncheon
was served, Princess Ching presiding.
After the luncheon a crowd of prin
cesses and palace attendants entered
the hall, followed by the Empress Dow
ager, who was accompanied by the
Emperor. The former is described as
of sallow complexion and determined
in expression, but wearing a charming
smile. Contrary to Chinese custom,
her face was not painted.
The Emperor is described as "sad,

meeK tuu veiy nt?.ijr.
The Empress Dowager conversed
with the foreign, ladies, telling them
she hoped they would enjoy their visit.
When tea was served she drank from
each lady's cup, and shortly after
wards, in a burst of womanly emotion,
embraced her visitors.
I The party then adjourned to the
palace theater, traversing the gorgeous
corridors.
NEW YORK, Dec. 23 The epidemic
of grippe is still in marked evidence.
The death rate from bronchitis and
pneumonia continues very heavy.
Many of the recent deaths from pneu
monia have been indirectly due to the
grippe. Furthermore, physicians say
that the prevalence of the grippe, with
the consequent general weakening of
the system, causes an increase in
mortality in all lines. During the last
four days the deaths from all causes
have been 530. This is a daily average
of 132 . On the corresponding days
of last year the deaths from all causes
numbered 3S8, a daily average of ninety-seven.
Many school children and
teachers are suffering from the grippe.
There are about 225,000 enrolled in the
public schools in this city. The nor
mal ratio of absentees is about one m
200. Today Superintendent Jasper re
ported that there were about 45,000 ab
sentees among the pupils, or 20 per
cent. Of the 5.3S0 teachers about 7 per
cent are on the absent list, whereas
3 or 4 per cent is the usual ratio.
There are 381 sick policemen today.
PHILADELPHIA, Dec. '23. It is es
timated that between 25,000 and 30,000
persons in this city are suffering from
grip and doctors report it on the in
crease. At the Board of Health today
six deaths -were reported to have oc-.
curred within the past twenty-four
hours, directly due to grip, and twelve
other deaths were traced indirectly to
the same cause.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 23. Washing
ton has succumbed to the influenza. A
large number of clerks in the depart
ments are sick and clerical work is
seriously delayed. Many members of
Congress are housed by the disease.
Secretary Hay is confined to his ibed
and Secretary Long is also suffering as
are Chief Justice Bingham of the Sup
reme Court of the. "District -and Asso
ciate Justice Cox. Ten thousand
school-children were absent from
school today. The doctors in the Health
Department say an increase in the
death rate will be the immediate con
sequence. TOLEDO (Ohio), Dec. 23. The grip
has gained a secure foothold in this
city and all physicians are busy with
it. While it is impossible to estimate
the number of cases, they will run into
the thousands.

new water mains for various districts
of Honolulu, has arrived from the
Mainland by the bark R. P. Rithet.
The firm that secured the contract to
supply pipe -has written that first ship
ments may be expected early next
month. Mr. Brown, Superintendent of
Water Works, said yesterday that he
did not anticipate any delay in having
the material. Mr. Brown added that
"dirt would fly" with a vengeance when
tbfe pipe was once on- hand.
The plans at present are to give to
the town before the center of the year
is reached, 40,000 feet of new main.
Tb.is .will be half eight-inch and half
twelve-inch. Nearly all of it will be
to replace small and inadequate main
now in use. A large quantity of the
old main will be used in extending the
water system into various suburbs,
n6tably the Kapiolant park neighbor
hood and Kalihi. Kalihi is also to
have a new pumping station modelled
after the station at the corner of Ala
pai and Beretania streets.

The Great Tesla.
(S. F. News-Letter.)
According to Nicholas Tesla, the in
ventive electrician, he will presently
demonstrate that sitting in his comfort
able New York workshop he can scut
tle the warships of the Turkish navy
at Constantinople. That is about what
his latest invention means. Yet Nich
olas is very much like ordinary men,
although a hundred years since he
would have been promptly jugged as a
lunatic for expressing sa belief in such
incendiary ideas. There are some peo
ple left in New York who think he
should be put out of possible harm's
way on general principles.
