sir ? Certainly. The jinricksha is a
Htuall two wheeled wagon , much in
shape like a Hitlky , exeepl lhal il
ban a lop which can bo rained in
rainy wealher. It has shafts joined
at Ihe end by a eroHH bar. ' 1 ho
"rickshaw" men are clad in neat
navy blue garments , their well de
veloped legH enoased in unwrinkled
tightH , IOOHO jackets with wide
flowing HleoveH , their faeoH peeping
from beneath muBhroom shaped
natH. Slick two slrawn in one end
of a potato , a mushroom in tlio
other , sot it up on the Htrawn and
you have a Jap in out line. The
hotels aud business houses are nicely
located and are built upon European
principle. The EngliHh resident
portion of town is upon a highblufl ,
whore cool breezes , and fragrant
tropical planls makes lifopasHsorono ,
The JapauoHO home forms n great
contrast to the.HO of Ihe Englinh.
They are very small , even daintily
uo , like play IIOUHOH , built of a thin
shingle like board and line in texture.
Kiro places are unknown and potluck -
luck is taken over a few charcoal
upon a cold day. Light frames cov
ered with tmo rice paper are used
aa partitions doors and windows in
one. They uan bo removed at any
time throwing the floor into one
room. Japan in tlio land of love
beauty , poelry and impatiently wn
are longing to see the "geisha" girls
and drink their lea. At last our
tea arrives and the pretty maidens
clad in exquisite , angel sleeved gar-
monls bow gracefully , bending
down until their heads touch their
knees , then kneeling before \\a mur
mur gently agreeling. The "geisha"
girls stand posed wilh open fan in
hand above their heads , loady to
bi gin thi1 dani'o. They are very
short wilh Ihe tenderest of slender
aislH. Tl.oir soft tender eyes are
made blacker by painted lashes aiui
brows , their midnight hair , stiffened
with a gummy wash , is most won
derfully dressed in largo coils and
ornamented with gold and silver
( lowers. Their kimonos dresses of
Ihe most exquisite material trail all
around them , and are loosely held
together at the waist with a sash ;
their long flowing sleeves fall back ,
showing their dimpled arms and
bahy hands. Upon their tiny foot
they wear cunning vihilo Blockings
with a place .for tlio great lee
When Ihoy go out they wear wooden
sandals. They powder their faoos
and have a way of reddening their
under lip just at iho tip that gives
Ihum a modi tempting look. The
lips look like two luxurious cherries.
The musicians begin a long chanting
strain and these bits of beauty lie-
gin lo danoo. Wilh a graoo
simply enchanting they twirl their
fans , sway their dainty bodies in a
hundred different popes , each one
more intoxicating than the preced
ing one.
Alas this land of pleasure.
Tokyo is visited and wo see the
Mikado's palaces , which are en
closed by a fifty foot stone wall nnd
three wide moats and many beauti
ful parks. Wo also visited a lom-
p'o ' and lots of little gods. Took in
a most delightful loa-houxo and
wore served by two little "japs"
girls with tea and cake. Wo saw
a god with his nose rubbed off. .
The japs believe that if they have a
pain or aoho and rub their hands
over the face of that god , and Ihen
when the pain is located they will
be cured. English is taught in the
schools. Tlio girls are taught
graceful movements hew to onter-
IPih , to serve tea and the proper and
graceful way to uuo chop sticks.
It is a pretty sight to sen a lovely
woman use chop sticks. The belle
here use a highly polished steel 1
dink to view her numerous c.haruiH.

of everything. Hath cost two cents

bright sunny morning when we
leave Yokohama the "land of

The "llanoooK" heaves anchor , dips
colors lo the warships , shaking the
spray of Japan's coast from our bows
and are out at sea. Eight hundred
miles from Frisco. Old you ever
h.'tvo that funny fooling ? Wo had
it a few dajy past. Two days in a
Mjunl. Lost a chicken coop over-
bonrd ; was bathed inside and out
with ovur forty barrels of salt water
entering the ports , while peacefully
dreaming ; six of UH wore lOiookt'd
as tuking a bath according vo ro-
gulationfc. This theory of gravita
tion is completely upsuH 0:1. : ' n. in.

conveyance by Bob Froy. Got
mixed up with some gnpf , tinpltilus ,
uolii'e cups and guns ; crawled lo the
slairs ami gel on dock ; had bacon
for breakfast and immediately had
in engagement "attending lo my
own business" came in conlacl with
i cook chasing a ronst lhat had
jumped out of the pan. lie gave
me some advice and we learned
many useful things. He said one
should tie a string to his bacon on
a morning like that , then ho
wouldn't loose il. A ship cook IH
i great fellow. IIo had every thing
tin I down except the colToo pol.
You ought to see thai coffee pot
slide. It glided up to the bacon
and then Hlid against Ihe starboard
side ol the oatmeal .The cook's ladle
started to run away also but ho had a
siring on that ; soldiers learn quickly
and wo soon had everything strung.
Wo were not far from land though ,
in case of accident ; about five
miles , straight down. Now that
we are far from th deadly Mauser
and its mate and lhat famed portal
the beautiful "Golden Goto" looms
and bids we reluming ones welcome.
This will most emphatically bo my
"last appearance" in print. During
the past year it has been our effort
to put the "whole cheese" before
the readers of dialer county's load
ing paper. To smooth the rough
edges and make you behove wo
were living on pic instead of por-
hapHnolhing ; lo ease the hoarU of
those lhal were anxiouH about , well
at leant that we might bo a little
mite in good doing. Thanking the
KKPUHMCAN for the courtesy shown
and the excellent way they photo
graphed mo the past year wo hope
soon to bo initiated by Broken Bow's
billy goat and brass band as a long
lost citizen. WALTKR S. FUCK.

There is often much in a name
The geography of America is rich
in njmonolaturo which abounds
with poetry , romance and historj
asHocialion. This IH especially Iruc
of Indian names , which in a very few
j oars will bo all lhat us loft lo us
of a picluroHquo race. Long afler
the lasl red man has vanished and
his di/scendonU have become amal
gamated wilh IhoHC of his deslroyers
such names as Rod Cloud , Black
HawkLodge PoloBattle Crook , Fox
Lake , Big Horn , Buffalo Lake am.
Bro.kon Bow will remind our child
ren's children that over this land once
roamed a peculiar people. But the
United States pOHtotlicc department
with an abnormal appetite for van
dalism for which there is no valid
excuse , persists in bulohering these
suggoHlivo names until Ihoy are
nardly rooogniiblu , and in place
of them have inflicted upon us such
monstrosities as Kedolond , Black
hawk , Lodgepolo , Batlleorook , Fox-
lake , Bighorn , Buffalolaku and Bro-
konbow. Petitions and protesls
have generally boon unavailing to
stop this mangling of b.'autifu
and suggestive names by postmas
lors gener.illy who have no poetry
in their sordid souls , but we are
gratified to learn thai ihrough the
solicitation of many citizens , led by
Senator Currie the department hat *
consumed lo restore "Brokonbow'
to its original and proper form
"Broken Bow.1 Now lot tbo saint
