Buttercup Seeds as Food.
. The seeds of the buttercup are so
raw 11 that we would scarcely think of
them as a source of food for human
belnjrs; yet It is said that the Indians
formerly gathered them for that pur

in sufficient quantity would seem like
an almost endless task. But after

New York. Not many people know
that among the many interesting
things which develop In New York
city Is a group of Chinese philosophers
who dwell in a bamboo forest. Know
ing that the forest Is on Macdougal
street helps, for many interesting
things qpme out of Macdougal street
The head of the philosophic group is
Dr. Liu Tien Tao, who received de
grees both in China and. at Columbia,
and who, once & week, may be, foimd
imparting knowledge of Chinese lan
guage, philosophy and poetry to a
group of students. These include art
ists, writers and Chinese students.
The Chinese in themselves are inter
esting, for they come f rom different
parts of the world, where they have
lived since leaving their native land.
One speaks French and does not un
derstand English ; another speaks Rus
sian. Teach Chinese.
Chinese is taught by Doctor Liu in a
semi-popular way, much as the Euro
pean languages are taught. It is com
paratively simple to obtain a slight
working knowledge of the language,
the students find. The delight of writ
ing mysterious characters such as
those which grow on tea chests is
one of which the pupils never tire. In
time they expect to a certain extent
to read Chinese poetry and philosophy.
In the meantime they imbibe It from
Doctor Liu, who later is to arrange
special courses in Chinese poetry and
philosophy, with the aid of lecturers
from Columbia.
Doctor Liu believes that his work is
valuable In promoting mutual under
standing between Chinese and Ameri
cans. He thinks each country can ob
tain of the other something of value
which it needsr that China can get
practical business methods from Amer
ica and America can feel the quieting
influence of Chinese philosophy.
In the meantime, the American stu
dents of Chinese are absorbing knowl
edge literally In a bamboo forest. It
is something like Shakespeare's
"tongues in trees, books in running
brooks." At the Bamboo Forest the
students read if they can make It out
Chinese poetry written on lacquered
tables, some of it by great national
poets and other verses contributed by
Doctor Liu himself. Big decorative
Chinese characters signifying "happi
ness" or "wisdom" cover the walls or
the bamboo poles which form the forest.
In Bamboo Forest.
This forest Is a Chinese tea garden
which, with American business vision,
Doctor Liu saw would have to pay
overhead charges while he was carry
ing on his chosen work and gathering
around him as applicants for Chinese
wisdom little coteries of Interested
philosophers and friends. The tables
covered with Chinese characters were
all decorated by the head philosopher
The Bamboo Forest Is Indoors In a
basement of the little old Macdougal
street house In winter, but in fair
weather extends to a more real bam
boo forest in the open at the rear.
Doctor Liu is a philosophic philoso
pher. He takes the American world as
he finds It and adopts its customs and
habits. He attended the recent ball
of the Independent Artists at the Wal
dorf dressed as a prince of the old
Tang period. But he danced American
dances with the rest of the American
world, an accomplishment he learned
while at Columbia.
The head philosopher of the Bamboo
Forest comes from a family of both
students and warriors. His father was
president of a Chinese college, and an
uncle, the famous Gen. Hwang Hsing,
led the republican forces in the revo
lution in China in 1912.
Young Hog's Great Weight.
Green Bay, Wis. 3". Gabriel Town
of Brazeau, exhibited at the Farmers'
Institute in Klondike a 'strip of flesh
from a twenty-month-old hog raised
on his farm that tipped the scales when
alive at 1,017 pounds and when dressed
at 717 pounds. The strip was cut
from the back of the porker and was
eight Inches thick without the bone.
The hog was a cross between a Po
land China and a Chester White. The
hog was fed only corn the last two
months it was alive.

The majority of the students en
rolled from the State of Kentucky
are experienced teachers. During
the school year twenty-eight of
these men and women are adminis
trators of public education; five are
college instructors; thirty-four are
teachers of high school subjects, and
seventeen are teachers of primary
and grammar grades. Seven did not
mention the type of work they are
doing; and fifteen failed to indi

Twenty-six of the 120 counties in
Kentucky, either have not sent in
their tax returns for ths year, or
have failed to meet increases order
ed by the State Tax Commission, it
was announced at the office of the
commission, in Frankfort. Recapi
tulations from 11 others have not
been approved, pending the outcome
of appeals from the assessments
made by the tax supervisors.
It is regarded here as probable
that some of the counties which
have not yet made their returns to
the Commission were awaiting the
recent decision" of the Court of Ap
peals in which it was held that the
counties must meet increases order
ed by the Commission. All of the
counties which "revolted" against
the commission and backed the Fay
ette county suit, are among those
still out.
The counties from which returns
have not yet been received are:
Adair) Anderson, Ballard, Bath,
Bourbon, Boyle, Carlisle, Clark, Crit
tenden, Fayette, Graves, Hardin,
Knott, Larue, Madison, Marion,
Marshal, McCracken, Mercer, Mont
