, Dramatists are apt to -build . .their
plays' around some Inanimate object.
The .-writer of melodrama chooses a
fire engine, a sawmill or a tank of
."'real'1 water." The author- of society
L-Jcomedies chooses as a rule something
aess sensational and more delicate.
-This is the case with "Whitewashing

, FUNNY CHINESE NOTIONS.
About Structure of Human Body
and Functions of Organs.
, Chinese medical literature Is copi
ous and its biblography has been
drawn up with the most, scrupulous
care; but the whole contents consist
of unreasoning commentaries on the
works of a few old masters, 'whose
texts, like those of other sacred - vol
umes of oriental literature, are , far
too. sacred to suffer thQ slightest in
novation. Those "masters" . of Chi
nese medicine were contemporaries
of Machaon and Podalirius, , who
dressed the wounds of the besiegers
of Troy. Direful would be' the al
most inevitable results of the explor
ation of any of the activities of the
human body by the Chinese practi
tioner! No Chinese representative
of the healing art has ever dissected
any portion of the human frame. Ac
cordingly, their Ideas of anatomy' and
physiology are matters of faith
confirmed by images which have been
reproduced dnrlng untold centuries.
Their osteology teaches that the skull
is formed! of one bone; so is the pel
vis; the- number of ribs varies with
the Individual, and at the Junction of
the arm with the forearm is placed a
suTital patella, ; According to Chi
nese splanchnology, the small intes-r
tines communicate with the cavity of
the heart, while the colon, after de
scribing 10 circumvolutions, termin
ates, by opening into the lung. .
- The heart (governs the vital r prot
cesses In operation with - the cavity
of the stomach it supplies all Ideas
and all the pleasurable sensations.
The liver is the habitat of the soul;
and it is from this gland Ithat all, no
ble and generous sentiments ' eman
ate. The gall bladder is the recep
tacle of courage; its ascent in the
body is the cause of a fit of anger.
They have, an idea of the continuous
motion! of the blood; but it seems ,to
be the product of an imagination
more riotously ' oriental than even
that which created the other Items of
their physiologic knowledge.
They do not know the pulmonary
Circulation; they, naturally, know
nothing of the valves in the veins;
they do not even appear to have quite
grasped the motor function ' of the
heart Itself; but i they nevertheless
profess to differentiate no less than
74 varieties of pulse simultaneously
recognizable on the person of a single
individual.
In Its ultimate structure the body
is composed of five elements : . Fire,
water, earth, wood and metal. Each
of , these elements is In harmonious
rapport with the corresponding mem
bers of the series of five planets, five
metals, five solid viscera, five colors
and Ave tastes. All diseases origin
ate from disturbances of the primary
and essential quintic harm6nies of
these correlations. American - Medi

Wheat is the oldest grain in cultiva
tion. It came originally from the cen
ter of Tibet,5 where it still exists as a
grass with small mealy seeds.

splendid titles, is "The Rose - of De

Lived and Died I'oKcther.
Mary a,nd Isabella McOall, of Chester,
Pa., were affectionate sisters. They died
within a few days of ach other, and It
was learned that the will of each gave
her entire property to the other. . Their
property will be distributed as if they
tad died intestate.

PEPPERS ARE POPULAR.
In the lobster palaces and fashiona
ble restaurants, one sees dozens ' of
persons eating baked, stuffed peppers
nowadays, where formerly peppers were
not on the bills in any form. "New
York uses now," says a produce com
mission . merchant In a recently pub
lished interview, "twenty times ' as
many peppers as it did twenty years
ago. The - city's consumption of pep
pel's amounts to thousands of barrels
annually. Then we get green peppers
now from a much wider range of terri
tory than formerly, and "we have them
practically the year around.
"We get peppers in winter from
Cuba, and we ; get a few from Porto
Rico. We naturally think of the pep
per as a homely sort of a domestic
product, but those early peppers that
we get from Cuba come In small crates,
as carefully packed as peaches would
be, and they bring a liigh price. They
go principally to hotels : and restau
rants. - ''';''Y' - ?' ' ' ' '
"We get early peppers from Florida,
too, and later some from Virginia,
around Norfolk, and then,, as the sea
son advances, we begin to get peppers
from New Jersey, which Is really the
great source of our pepper supply.
There are sections of Jersey In which
produce farmers make a specialty - of
peppers, plant them by tlje acre and
raise great crops of them.
"The enormous increased local con
sumption of peppers in recent years is
due in considerable measure to in
creased demand from packers. Peppers
are now more extensively, used than
ever before in the preparation of coudi
ments and sauces, and there are New
York packers of pickles and preserves
who would think nothing of buying
peppers in hundred barrel lots. But
the great increase in demand comes in
still greater measure from the vastly
increased foreign population of the
a-nfl. from the Italians especially.
who', great consumers of all fruits and
vegetables, take, witn me Test or me
green- things they buy, quantities of
peppers eating more or less of . the
sweet peppers as they "would fruit.
"So the homely pppper, once famil
iar to us In its stuffed and pickled
form, and known to .ua as ,-a thing of
rpamlnr but of limited sale has come
to cut quite a figure as an item in the
city's wholesale produce trade,"-New
York Commercial.
