Japanese Imperial Mint.
One of tho earliest Western Institutions
established in Japan was the I
Imperial Mint at Osaka, and it ha<
been one of ttie nro?t successful and
useful. In the convention which was
signed at Yeddo, in 18GG, between the
representatives of the Japanese Government
and tho<?e of the foreign
Powers, the establishment of a mint
was stipulated. The Japanese Government
purchased from tho British
Government a mint, which 1iad been
establln'ned at Hong --ong, but which
the latter had resolved to discontinue.
The mint la now managed entirely
by Japanese, and, judging from the
report of the director for the year

ZY O dor Iliil Cliloe was talking
quite heroically of life.
KOMT Iler hair hud been blown a
littie iiuo admired disorder by the bluff
wind on the heatli, her cheeks were
ilushed with health and beauty, and
she was mistress ami queen of herself
and her domain. l?'or me, my eyes
went from her bright and significant
face across the gray green oats in
which Ave walked t>reast high, and
back again in serene contentment.
What did it matter that she was prepared
to give battle to the monster?
Man? Let him perish.
The hills were ablaze with light, the
fields with charllck; we moved in the
sun's eye, but Chloe looked as cool as
a primrose in her muslin, despite the
heat of her opinions.
'I can't really understand a sensible
man like you taking up a position like
that," said she.
I had taken no position, except the
one by her side, but 1 defended myself
"Well, you see. we inherit those prepossessions
and prejudices from our
savage ancestors, I suppose."
"That's just it," said Chloe eagerly.
"You admit it, then? Savage! Of
course, they were savages. You've
given away your case."
i never really had any case, lmt I
didn't say so. "I suppose I have," I

"You know it," said Miss Boliun
firmly. "It is quite absurd to pretend
that women are one whit inferior to

quickly, "in regard to physical

I suggested.
She cast a glance at me. there

"And tlie women do all the hard work

She gave me another glance. "And

less confidence.
"Do you know," I sniil, Rtopping 1n

She looked away across the corn.
"Do?do you think so?" she said, hesitatingly;
and added, after a pause: "1
?I don't think I am so?I'm not what
you'd call muscular."
"Well, perhaps not," I assented, examining
her appralslugly; "but sinewy,

Ohloe, resignedly. "I do wish they'd

"A stile's more plotmvsque," said I.
"Very possibly," said Miss Iiohun, Indlttewmtiy.
"It's certainly ^iot as convenient."
"Ah," Said I, smiling, "there's one
Vhlng, at any rate, in which men are
Biiperlor. They can negotiate a stile."
"Indeed!" said Chloe, loftily. "I
should have thought the feat was not
impossible for a woman." I pursed up
my Hits. "Any woman can get ov-r
stiles." she said, warmly, seeing my
"Oil, I've no doubt," I said, politely.
"It's nonsense your saying that when
I can see you dou't believe it," wild
Miss lloliun. "You're simply plea sod
to be sarcastic all along."
I shrugged my shoulder*. She
marched coldly and confidentially to
ward ilio ?tilo. It took off * hl^h
ground which, I suppose, accounted
for the absence of n step. But there
were two cross bars to assist the
climber. I thought Chloo's face fell
as sho noted It.
"Let me fclve you a hand," f said.
"Nonsense!" she replied. "I dor.'t
want any assistance. It's quite easy."
She put the hand which was not oncumbered
by the sunshade on the top
bar and placed one neat foot on the
lowest. Then she hesitated.

I looked back. Mist* Boluin was
seated astride the top bar, clinging
with both hands to It. Iler face was
deeply (lushed.
"Do go on!" she enlled out, vehemently.
I went on leisurely. But, somebow,
I could not make up my mind to

I flung myself on the grass and pulled

"Please come?don't be bo unkind!"
she cried, with tears in her voice. 1

"You're linlf wny over now. ' You've

"I shall go over. I know I shall go

"No, you won't," said I. "It only requires
confidence. Imagine you're on

"But I don't ride a horjte this way,"
said Cldoe, miserably.
"No," said I, "but men do; and women
are just as good as "
"It's cruel of you?It's beastly, when
I'm in such peril!" sobbed Miss Rohun.
She clutched wildly for me with the
trembling hand she had disengaged. I
seized it and her. ;
"Now, just lift that foot," I enjoined.
Chloe's weight lay limn on my shoulder.
"I can't get it free. It's stuck," she
said pitifully. I moveu closer, still
with my burden on my shoulder, and
loosed the dainty foot. "Now," I said.
She lifted it gingerly. "Don't mind i

"The average mirror has a slightly

There la no virtue in a dawdling

some people call walking, would tire an

walk. To derive any benefit from the j
