FROM Vladivostock to Khaba-<
rovsk on the Amur River the
distance by railroad is 721
miles. The distance in time is
a little over^wo days and nights. The
Russian railway is not a lightning ex
press.
Still, that is the easiest way to
strike the Amur in the East. The city
of Khabarovsk is really the head of
important navigation on this Missis
sippi of Manchuria. There is a port.
Nicoloievsk, many hundred miles
northeast, on the Sea of Okhotsk, but
only persons with business in that
particular, melancholy part of Siberia
are likely to make a start from there.
The mass of the Amtir pilgrims start
from Vladivostok. . ■
There is only one thing which gives
the traveler comfort when he is em
barked on the greenish-yellow Amur
and its wicrd Imperial mail steamers.
Tt is that he has left behind the deadly
dullness, overlaid with mighty and
sticky yellow mud. of Vladivostok.
The Amur River is, at least, a relief
in (hat it flows through a grandly for
ested country. It won't stay forested
lnng. for (he locomotives and the
boats of the Russians are all fired with
wood; and the rapacity of the Sibe
rian wood thieves is cquaJ to that nf
the Chinese, which has made China an
uply bare land.
In some parts of the reeion through
which the Ussuri Railroad crawls to
Khabarosvk the engineers did not
even take trouble to chop down the
trees to make a way for the road.
They merely set fire to the woods and

Khabarovsk is no backwoods town.
Although it is away east, where the
bears say-good night to each other,
it has line stone buildings, among
them a truly excellent museum. There
arc 15.000 inhabitants and, of course,
a whole lot of soldiers. Judging from
the uniforms, the stranger might be
excused for carrying away the idea
that it is inhabited by at least a hun
dred generals.
!><>ni Khabarovsk to Stretinsk on
(lie Shilka River, where the travelers
;noct the Trans-Baikal branch of the
Siberian Railway, the distance is about
fourteen hundred miles. The magnifi
cenl steamers make the trip in periods
varying from two and a half weeks to
four, according to the circumstances.
The Amur, like the Mississippi, is
a river of fickle habits. Sometimes
it tries its best to run dry, and then
ships that have, more than four feet
draught lie up against the bank or at
Do Popular Songs
Pay Their Writers ? j
THE lucky writer of a popular
song can usually make a for
tune out of it. if he possesses
ordinary business talent; and
the public is often surprised to read
of the large sums netted by the com
posers of such catchy tunes as "Be
del ia" and "Navajo." Yet many of
the best-known songs composed in
America brought little or no money
to their authors.
Stephen Collins Foster was the
greatest song-writer America has pro
duced. For more than fifty years no
songs have been more popular than
hia the world over; no songs have
touched more human hearts. He com
posed the words and music of "My
Old Kentucky Home.'" "The Old
Folks at Home." "Old Uncle Ned,"
"Massa's in the Cold. Cold Ground."
"Come Where My Love Lies Dream
ing," and many other songs that are
familiar as household words.
Fven in his own day his songs had
an immense sale and ought to have
made him wealthy. But he lived poor
and died poor. He had no idea of j
business. He gave away most of his !
best songs to friends, who published
them; others he sold to publishers for
ridiculously low figures. In some
cases he let publishers have the songs
for nothing, and was content with
his fame and popularity, while they
weri- coining a rich harvest of gold.
Septimus Winner, the author of
"Listen to the Mocking Bitd," "What
Is Home Without a Mother?" and
other famous songs, made very little
money out of them. He sold "The
Mocking Bird." his most popular
work, to a firm of publishers for $5.
They made $100,000 out of it, but gave
him nothing more.
There is probably no living Ameri
can song-writer more popular than
Will S. Hays, the author of "Molly
Darling." Over a million copies of
that song have been sold, and the total
sale of all his songs runs far over
ten millions of copies. It has been
said that "his simple melodies "an be
appreciated by a prima donna or a
anchor, and crew and passengers wait
with true Russian resignation for
enough rain to fall in the uplands
of the Shilka. a thousand miles away,
to produce water sufficient to float
them.
The steamers have the general out
ward appearance of Mississippi River
boats, but the resemblance ceases
there. Some of them are side-wheelers
and some are stern-wheelers. Many of
them tow immense flatboats behind,
loaded with immigrants or deck pas
sengers. If a time comes when the
steamer cannot cross some bar or
shoal, owing to low water, the immi
grants are calmly dumped out any
where along shore and sit down
to wait from an hour to a day
while the cabin passengers arc trans
ferred on the fiat boat to a steamer
beyond the shoal. As this transfer is
accomplished by the primitive method !
of pulling the flatboat along shore at j
the end of a rope, progress is so slow j
that the nassengers usually set up '
housekeeping en route, for the Rus
sian mail service is somewhat negli
gent as to meals and other comforts
during such episodes.
The passengers are divided into
firsthand second cabin and deck pas
sengers. The latter have to live, eat
and sleep on the sheet iron decks. |
There are no awnings or other cover
ings. Tndeed, on many of the boats
there are no awnings for the cabin

passengers, either.
As the Amur
summer te as
fiercely hot as the
winter is £erc«ly
cold, a voyage on
the Amur soon
loses J its de-«^
burning sun. The cabins are cubby
holes, and even among the cabin pas
sengers there always is a fair propor
tion who live in simple ways—wash
ing most infrequently, and sleeping,
with boots and coats on, on the cots
and wall seats whenever the mood
strikes them, day or night.
All the time while the boats are un
der way, day or night, a man stands
in the bow to sound the depth. He
does not use a lead, as do the Missis
sippi leadsmen. He has a tall pole,
about six feet long, which has a line
attached to it. This pole is heaved
overboard and thrust down till it
touches bottom, when the depth is
chanted forth in a sorrowing tone.
Cossack Villages.
At intervals the steamers stop at
villages. Most of these are built of
wood, and are settled by Cossacks, for
the Cossack is the man whom the
Russian Government has sent all
through this part of Manchuria and
Siberia to make a nucleus for a popu
lation.
The people usually meet the boat
with allkinds of fresh food, like fruit,
caviar, cheese, milk and breati. There
is always a rush to buy, for after
about three days of traveling by the
Imperial mail on the Amur the ap
petite is ready for business. But
An Unappreciated Royal Author.
It is the fashion for kings and
queens to write books nowadays.
"Carmen Sylva," the Queen of Rou
mania, and the Emperor of Germany
are only two of the most famous out
of many royal authors.
Many stories are told of royal per
sonages sending manuscripts to pub
lishers under assumed names, and
having them rejected. The late Duke
of Clarence, King Edward's eldes.
sou. experienced this humiliation with
a novel which he wrote under the
pseudonym "Nixes." and sent in vain
to several London publishing houses.
But probably only one king ever had
his work refused by publishers«who
knew his rank.
Thi.-< happened to King Luiz 1.,
the father of the present King of Por
tugal. He occupied his spare time for
over twenty-five years in translating
Shakespeare's plays into Portuguese.
When he had completed this big task,
he took his immense pile of manu
script personally to London and tried
to get it published. Not a single Eng-;
lish publisher would risk his money
in the venture, even 10 oblige a mon
arch: and eventually King Luiz took
his translations back to Lisbon anri
published them at his own expen-c.
They fell flat. The Portuguese
wore disloyal enough to refuse to buy
them, and the circulation of the work
was practically confined to copies
which His Majesty gave away to his
friends and courtiers.

though the Russian passengers are
eager buyers, they are not reckless.
They test everything before they pur
chase, being ?<o cautious as even to
uncork the bottles of milk and take
a sample swig before they invest.
After two days of this kind .of
traveling the steamer reaches the
place where the great Sungari, run
ning north from the southern part of
Manchuria to Harbin and then north
east to the Amur, joins its yellow,
muddy floods, full of clay from the
lowlands, to the cleaner waters of the
big river.
The Sungari is. in a large degree,
the Missouri of Manchuria. With its
tributary stream, the Nonni, it forms
a great waterway that reaches well
into the heart of the country of the
Manchus over which the Russian Bear
now rules. And it has on its shores
some of the most important stations
of the Chinese Eastern Railway be
sides Harbin.
But there is no St. Louis where the
Manchurian Missouri meets the Man
churian Mississippi. A Korean colony
lies there, and you can buy dried and
fresh salmon and mighty little else
in it.
Some distance west, however, lies
a flourishing town, the Cossack set
tlement of Nikolsk. Like all the other
Cossack settlements along the Amur,
How Presentable Youths
Can Pay Summer Board
Innumerable stories are told of
clever women who make fine incomes
during the summer as entertainers at
resorts, but it remained for a club of
half a dozen young men to solve the
summer vacation problem on new
lines last summer.
They went to one of the most fash-!
ionnble Atlantic coast resorts and se
cured board at an inexpensive cottage.;
The fare proved anything but satis-j
factory. The boys had set aside a
certain amount of money for board,
and another sum for boating, fishing,
and other aquatic pleasures. They
did not wish to cut into the latter
fund, neither did they feel satisfied to
remain at the boarding house.
At the end of their second day at
the beach, the lea'dcr of the party
called upon the, manager of the mosti
Fashionable hotel along the ocean
front. Frankly explaining their posi
tion —incidentally it should be men
tioned that he wore his best raiment —
the proposition which he made the
manager was this:
If the latter would make them a
reasonable rate of board—in fact', no
more than that which they were pay
ing at the boarding house —they would
agree in return to make it pleasant
for the many unattended, ennuied
young women who lounged without
escorts on the piazza. In fact, all of
their spending money should be uti-

the inhabitants do much more fishing
and hunting than farnjing. This is
one of the noticeable conditions along
the Amur; and, since the settlements in
this valley are the most desirable for
! the agricultural population "of Russia,
they are truly typical of a weakness
i of Russian colonization.
Not Good Colonists.
The Russian peasant does not ap
pear to be a good Colonist. He
doesn't try to get more out of the
earth under his new and favorable
conditions than he did in Russia un
der unfavorable ones.
Although the Russian has taken
! away the heritage of the Manchurian
. Chinaman, the Chinaman is getting
' it back by the slow, humble but re
morseless process of work.
The Russian, colonist is not strong
on raising new kinds of crops. He
■-ontents himself with growing in
j Manchuria the same kind of stuff he
used to raise along the Volga and the
Dnciper. Before long he sublets some
of the land that the Government has
given to him. The man who rents it
is a Chinaman.
The Chinaman at once begins to
raise garden truck, which he under
stands thoroughly. This he carries
1 to the towns and the steamer land
, ings, where he is sure of a good mar
! ket. Before long he leases another
lized in giving a good time to the
girls at that hotel, and at no other.
• The manager saw the point. These
well-groomed, well-spoken fellows, be
tween eighteen and twenty-one, would
make & social center on hi> hotel
verandas during- the middle of the
week when men were scarce. He
made the agreement, and the boys
moved.
The young fellow- lived up to their
agreement, and the pretty girls of the
hotel were not forced tn repine in
solitude until the week's end.
Club and hotel manager parted last
season on the best of term*>. and this
year the young men were not sur
prised to receive a more generous
offer from the manager. He urged
them to come early and stay late.
The club has been increased to ten
members, the majority of whom hold
positions with banks, brokerage or
commission houses. They expect to
remain at the shurc three weeks.

parcel of land from the Russian
owner.
Then, when the latter sees a little
rent money in hand, he often takes to
his favorite National occupation of
snoozing behind the stove. Or, if he
is more energetic, he is lured by the
abundance of game and sets himself
to hunting.
In this, again, the Chinaman leads
him astray. There are lots of deer
along the Amur, and the Chinaman
prizes the antlers in the velvet so
highly as a sovereign remedy for lots
■of ills that he will pay from ten to
! a hundred dollars for good specimens.
But the Chinaman is a poor hunter,
Consequently, the Russian colonist is
tempted to neglect his hard farming
work for the easier and more lucra
tive pursuit.
Neglects His Crops.
After he has shot a few deer, he has
enough money to make him care-free
for a while. He drinks his vodka and
tea in peace and joy, only to awaken
too late to the fact that his crops
have not been attended to.
Then he puts in the winter living
precariously on what he can borrow
or beg. -The result is that agriculture,
the main object of all intelligent Na
tional colonization, is not a brilliant
success as yet in the Amur country.
; | Although deer are plentiful and
venison is as cheap in this region as
beef in the United States, you don't
get venison to eat on the river
steamers.
The first day the passenger will hug
to himself the delusion that he is
going to live like a king, for the
Amur is wonderfully rich in fish, and
i magnificent sturgeon and salmon are
served at table. Tt is possible to buy
a three-foot sturgeon, big enough
to make a meal for fifteen persons, for
from ten to fifteen cents.
But after you eat sturgeon and sal
mon, diversified only by salmon and
sturgeon, for two days and three days
and four days and at last fifteen days,
and when all the drinkables except tea
have run out —which always seems to
happen on the Russian Imperial Amur
Mail—the joy of living is impaired.
The deck passengers live still more
monotonously. Tea and dried sal
mon are their staple food. There are
no facilities for cooking on their deck.
If they want something hot besides
tea, they appeal to a particularly
n-iminal brand of vodka which would
burn the hair off a Western mustang.
If the voyage is being taken in mid
summer, the traveler may account
himself lucky if he manages to get
as far up the Amur as Blagovest
chensk before the boat has to lie up
to wait for a higher stage of water.
There, at least, he can get lodging in
a hotel and escape the crowded, dirty
steamer, which by that time will have
been rendered nearly unendurable by
the passengers, who economize their
time so carefully when traveling that
they rarely spend more than a rjass
ing moment in the single washroom
which graces each boat.
A Revival in Cycling.
There is a decided revival of inter
est in wheeling this year, particularly
in the large cities, where for the past
two years the bicycle has been rather
under a ban.- The revival came with
unexpected suddenness, and repair
-hops were flooded with more orders
for work than they could do. The
new interest seems to be among
former wheelmen rather than new
ones, though there is also a brisk
trade in new bicycles.
At the repair shops a carious rea.-nn
i* offered for this return to favor.
Enthusiastic wheelmen for the past
two years have had their ardor some
what dampened by the comparison of
bicycles with automobiles, but as the
automobile craze continued to be one
beyond the purse of the average in
dividual, wheelmen returned to their
discarded machines, realizing that the
bicycle was a pretty good thing after
all."

Blagovestchensk is the town which
was made famous in modern history
by the great slaughter of Chinese by
the Russian authorities at the time of
the Boxer outbreak. The Russians
themselves admit that 5,000 Chinese
were driven into the Amur a short
distance from the town and drowned
and bayoneted, only 40 escaping to
the other side.
just below Blagovestchensk lies a
terrible monument to the Russian Oc
cupation' of Manchuria. It is the great
ruin-field of Aignn, once one of the
biggest Chinese towns in that part of
the country. Now there is not a sin
gle structure left standing in it. The
highest thing in the place is the rem
nant of a burned wall.
Only two miles away is a magnifi
cent Russian military station with
stone buildings. The date of its erec
tion is that of the year when Aigun
disappeared from the earth.
There is a good thing to remem
ber when passing Aigun. If you
photograph the ruins, don't lei the
Russians see it. The authorities will
confiscate the films. They r!o not care
to have photographs of Aigun so out.
From Blagovestchensk the voyage is
northward, for here begins the upper
Amur, running along the very north
western boundary of the old land of
the Manchus.
The character of the shores remains
the same here. Indeed, from begin
ning to end of the trip the river runs
between the same gentle wooded hills.
Rut on the upper Amur the steamers
meet occasional rafts, bearing immi
grants with their movables. They
build these conveyances at Stretinsk
and float down the Shilka and so into
the Amur till they reach their desti
nations.
On the upper Amur the traveler
also sees the queer "burning shores"
that are the results of fires among the
strata of coal that are plentiful alone
the eroded bluffs.
Now and then a floating coramer
cial establishment comes down with
the current. It is a raft with goods on
it. The enterprising merchant drifts
from village to village till he has
sold out. Then he sells his raft and
boards the river steamer to return to
Stretinsk, where he builds a new
portable warehouse and repeats the
trip.
When the boat enters the Shilka
River, the passengers see their last of
Manchuria and enter true Russian Si
beria. The Shilka is deeper and
swifter and more picturesque than the
Amur, and exceedingly lonely. Al
though it is well lighted and buoyed,
so that the traveler is never out of
sight of a Government channel mark,
the steamer may go fifty miles and
more at a time without passing a hu
man habitation.
Now and then a steamer may come
hurrying downward with a great cov
ered craft in tow which is full of con
victs bound for the gold mines or the
island of Saghalien. Now and then
the steamer may even take on a few
convicts, shackled with heavy iron-,
to be transported to one of the mili
tary stations.
But even'these melancholy interrup
tions of the monotony of the voyage
are rare. And as there, is little to see
by going ashore in the small places
where the vessel stops for wood, there
is joy aboard when the craft suddenly
turns a bend in the river and steers
straight toward Stretinsk, where the
railroad locomotive is whistling and
puffing to carry the traveler west over
the Trans-Baikal Railroad to holy
Moscow.
Sample of Filipino
Insurgent Journalis /
A man who was with the Gillmore
party in Filipino captivity tells a story
of the journalistic methods employed
by the insurgents to create en
thusiasm among the natives.
"We did not know," he says, "who
was in command of the American
army, or that Dewey had gone home.
"One day we got the insurgent pa
per, "La Independencia,' and read in
big headlines, 'Another Filipino Suc
cess,' and the sub-heading, The Bald
win Hotel of San Francisco I? De-
>troyed.'
""The article went on describing the
total destruction by fire of the hotel,
implying that the insurgent army had
attacked it.
" 'The loss of life was terrific,' con
tinued the article, 'and no doubt \t
will badly cripple the Yankees, but
«uch are the fortunes of war. \\>
would not gladly inflict death by fir?
on even our enemies, but when our
national existence depends upon it.
we cannot hesitate. Long live the
