It has been the custom to think of the Orient as the place of the mar riage of convenience, the place where it is believed that the circumstances and training of the parties concerned have more to do with happiness than the mere matter of their personalities. But odd sidelights are thrown on this tradition in the survival of legends of romance and stories of remarkable ex ceptions to the rule. Two of these tales concern the but terfly in tlie mandarin's garden and the white rooster. These figures en ter into many Chinese betrothals and marriage feasts. Instead of a pair of ear-rings or a bracelet a Chinese swain, smitten on the iady who has been selected for J»«n in one way or another, Is apt to give her a carved jade butterfly to wear as a jewel. This commemorates a legend of a most remarkable exception to the rule of marriages of caste and convenience. A youth sometime, somewhere, was chasing butterflies. Following a par ticularly lovely one he Jumped over a wall and landed In the garden of a mandarin. The mandarin had a daugh ter. He caught the butterfly. His head was not chopped off and he mar ried the lady who matched the butter fly In the garden. Then there Is the story of the white rooster. These fowls are favorites In China and are considered ornamental objects for a first-class garden of poach blossoms and pine tress; The Chinas« maiden loses her lover, who goes to the wars or is taken from this earth in some romantic fashloq. She goes to the garden where she used to meet him. She thinks about him. She looks down the well. She admires all the birds that are In the garden. They all leave her except her white rooster. She Jumps Into the well. So does the bird. They both drown. But both are faithful through life and In death. So at each wedding where proper attention Is paid to old customs the bride and groom drink wine from a carved jade cup which is a sentimental statue to the faithful bird. Steel Used in Umbrellas. All umbrellas contain steel as a necessary cofcponent. Just how much, however, has been a subject of some interest. While the umbrella industry is not a large user of steel, its total consumption of wire and sheets is sub stantial considering the light weight of the finished product. A maker of umbrella frames on a large scale in Philadelphia is reported to use 2,500 tons of high carbon steel rods, 350 tons of soft basic rods and 360 tons of bessemer sheet steel each year. The entire industry uses about 1,500 tons of sheets and about 1,580 tons of rods. Wirft- far the manufacture of ribs and Stretchers. \g jnade frggt high -carbon rod* while the runhers, notches and various other small parts used in the frames are fashioned from soft basic rods. The steel rods are made from bessemer sheets. Four companies ■ make practically all the umbrella frames in the United States. Of these three are In Philadelphia and one In Newark. Philadelphia, therefore, may be said to be the home of the umbrella industry of this country. be Built Train for Walts. A letter from Tokio telling of the visit of the prince of Wales empha sizes that the Japanese know how to do things well. The special train that carried the prince around the country was composed of three coaches which were built especially for his exclusive use. The loyal compartments are all upholstered In pure Japanese style, a restful tone of green being the pre dominant color. The woodwork is mahogany, with panels of silk carry ing a chrysanthemum design In white and gold. The mantelpiece masking the radia tor at one end of the observation car was made of mahogany imported into Japan some 60 years ago, it is said. Some highly prized wood' supplied the material for the writing table in the prince's private salon. The third coach was reserved for the members of the reception committee, at the head of which was a prince of the blood, who accompanied the prince of Wales throughout his Journey.

In France there Is a good-sized fund for the purpose of encouraging large families. Upon three different occa sions rather large sums of money have been given for this purpose by M. Cog nacq. The principal awards are 100 prlzgs of 10,000 francs each to be dis tributed annually to the deserving heads children nnd 90 prizes of 25,000 francs for the heads of families of at least nine children. The donor of these awards uccumuluted his wealth in the operation of a large department store In Paris and during his lifetime It was a constant source of concern to him to note the dwindling birth rate of his country. of families of more than flvè" No Pulse.

Shq was lying down resting the other day when he came up and tried to flnfi her pulse as he had seen the doc tor do. She said Ao bfln: "Do you think my pulse Is good to day, Doctor Me?" He solemnly re plied ; "No; you are dead."—Indian •polls News. Ths Meed of ths Tims. "I have no doubt that you could write a very Interesting book of remi niscences," remarked the admiring friend. "I might," replied Senator Sorghum. "But I am not going to attempt any such thing. At present people are not so much interested in what has hap pened as in what is going to happen." Ths Bridge of Sighs. Wife (awakened)—Why so grumpy, Tom? Didn't your host have a con genial gathering? Tom (sighing)—Yeah; there wore several men present with rather win ning personalities.—Judge. Some people will believe anything you tell them, if it's bad enough. No man is quite as good as he thinks his son-in-law should be. Some men give most of their atten tion to things that never happen. Some people are so sympathetic they're always sorry for themselves. How many times do We thank the person who shows us our mistakes? It is well to understand that It is sometimes well to stand from under. Perhaps the easiest way to haw a good time Is to go ahead and have it. Never judge a man's religion by what he says when you step on bis toea. } Opal McCowan was born In 1894, and passed away at the St Anthony Hospital, Pocatello, July 10, 1922.
