GOD OF WEALTH
Japanese Deity Whose Favor Naturally Is Sought. Worshipers at His Shrine, However, Are Comparatively Few Consider ing His Reputed Powers. Japan's "*even Gods of Good Luck" are a cl:an of deities from which phl losophy, religion and superstition have borrowed much of their origin. They are a queer set of deities, swept together from many incongruous sources-Japinese Shintoumn, Chinese Taoism, Ine':.an Buddhlsm and Brah manlsm. Orientals all, but cosmopoli tan Orlentrls! They com,;prise. to give them their full nanas,. Ehisu, Dalkoku, Benten, Fahuropuju, Bashamon, Jurijin and Hotel. A full discussion of their origin and attributes would doubtless reveal how slender a basis the modern popularity of these divinities has been reared on. Their union in one group is the result of nothin.g ioire recondite than popular ignorance' and confusion of ideas. They themse.,ilves never chose to be thus united. They reign in an ideal state, for they have no king or even spoketLsman among them. Col lectively they commalllndll perennial, per petual and everlasting interest. Indi vidually they celebrate their own festi vals and each can boast of an entirely diflerent group in his train of dev otees. On Dalkoku's birthday a few of his disciples will worship at his shrine at Azabu and in Osaka. It seems so strange to say "a few," for of all the gods In the cycle of Japanese mythol ogy, in this material age. Dalkoku, the god of wealth, should find greatest favor! But perhaps he has not proved himself to be gracious to suppliants! Perhaps efficacious influences have not been felt in result of worship at his shrines-or is it that even he, the god of wealth, has failed to live up to the extravagant standard our present-day clvilization has set as a basis to con tentment? Dalkoku is a Hindu and a Buddhist. The word "Dalkoku" means "great blackness," and when he first came to Japan he was a god of physique and frightful aspect with a face as black as night. Since his naturalization Daikoku has thrown off some of his native characteristics and has adopted a new mode of living, the chief of his models being Okuklkushinomokoto, a famous god In the mythology of Japan. In the old records this god was represented carrying a large bag on his shoulders. As there is a similarity ogy, in this material age, Dalkoku, the Japanese people somehow mixed up the two characters and molded them Into one perfect deity who combines the good points of both. Makhala (Sanscrit) was the original name by which he was known In India, where he was feared as god of destruction. His immigration to Japan has changed his Incarnation to that of wealth and plenty. He stands or sits on three bales of rice, having In one hand the usudeno kosuchi or the lucky hammer from which he can produce anything in the world he chooses to, from a palace down to gold or silver, man or beast! He carries on his back a bag full of treasures of all sorts, while rats are his earthly messengers and oftentimes he is represented with one on either side of him, waiting to do his bidding. Dalkoku is generally coupled with Ebisu, the god of tradesmen. Though they are of totally different birth, race, religion, etc., they have been linked together and one seldom sees the one without the other in close propinqulty. Although Dlakoku is not a god to whose shrine worshipers lock, hbls popularity is told by the samber of metallic images of his dirvinity whiceh are bought and carrled as amalets by people seeking wealth. Shall we test this jovial little man's powerst Go to his shrine and beseechb him to command a shower o gold, or carry his image in our pocket and s t we find It gold-lined by night? We are snobt-all of uso of e klad or another. "We don't care for mouey," say some hanghtily, having none. "I don't know how to spend my money." complains a millIoaire. It's I Daltkoku's turn to speak and if he but I could he would strip the world of Its anobbism and no doubt reveal a race a human beings all alike ia their allegiace to him, the god of wealth I Daescribed.

Are horses peculiarly gentle with babies? It seems a fair question. Cer tainly the horses in this account. d*, which a contributor sends us, were S almost humanly solicitous of the wel fare of the two young children who camue into contact with them. Oc" Our neighbor, says our contributor, )h- had a field one corner of which came IV* up to his dooryard. One day while he was plowing he stopped when he le reached the corner and, leaving the ous horses standing in the furrow, went ese to the pump for a drink. As soon as ah- he returned he took up the plow oil- handles and spoke to the horses. They did not move. He spoke again, sharply. sir Still they did not move. Astonished en, and vexed, he struck them with the ind whip. Still they stood immovable; and then he realized that somethingI ald must be wrong. lie went to their ow heals, and there In the furrow in front 'ity of themll he saw his toddling baby boy! on.
