In China the art of healing is still based on faith and super stition. To the Chinaman evil spirits play a great part in all illness. The earth is supposed to be full of evil spirits ready to pounce upon the unwary whenever they see an opportunity. Should a child be ill, it is be lieved that the soul has left the body. It must be called back be fore the child can recover. Call ing for the return of the soul is a custom prevalent in all parts of China. It is also the custom to pray for holy medicine. A patient must pay a visit to the temple and take from the altar a tube containing numbered sticks. He passes the tube over the incense several times until one stick falls out. This is picked up and the number on it is read. A cor responding . slip containing a prescription is then handed to him. As a treatment for apoplexy, serpent's liver is surely unique, SECOND SPECIAL SESSION WILL COST STATE $33,000 $154,000 Amount of Two Calls by Governor Grand Total Is $119,000.

MISSOUKI it Miss Dills made friends for herself and her department. The program furnished a de lightful variety in violoncello numbers by Mr. Little. The Ro mance by Fischer afforded op portunity for a beautiful legato tone which the player deftly drew from his instrument.
