many ways the Japanese go about d'

what we do. For instance, in the

Above the main door of each home is J
the name of the householder, v'lth the nc
? number and sex of the family. The
~j giving" of a name in Japan is a ceremony
of much importance and does tr;
not take place until the child is three t?
s* or four years old. There is a tradition a
that babies in the kind never cry. T*er- kg

1{ my stay there of many moons I never P
^ heard a child's voice raised in distress. a*

Boy burglars are trained In Ja very

ople living in villus pay a great deal
attention to bolts and bars on their '
ound floors, hut very little if any to ose
on the upper floors.
Accordingly the juvenile Bill Sikes
provided in tlie eurly dnys of his '
lining with a ton foot silken rope ^

the end is a strong but light steel
ok. The boy is required to practice '
th.this rope, throwing it in mucb the 3
tie way as a lasso would be up to a ^
ndow sill six or more feet above him.
that the hook holds to the stone. ?
Then the lassoing is acquired to the 9
iner's satisfaction the lad is next re- 9
ireil to shin up the rope without disging
the hook from the sill. This re- *
Ires a great deal of practice, and 9
ny are the falls endured. As the '
ght is seldom more than ten feet. .
i prior to this stage the boy has been 1
