CHINESE IN DIRE STRAITS
American Woman Tells of Terrible
Conditions in the Country's Famine-Stricken
"It was like sending my husband
off to war, when I saw him" depart for
service in the famine district out of
reach of the ordinary comforts of life,
and four days away from a doctor,"
writes Mrs. Guy L. Sarvis, from Nan
king, China, to the American commit
tee for China famine fund. Mr. Sar
vis, dean of the college of arts in the
University of Nanking, was recently
excused from Ills academic duties to
take charge of famine relief under the
international commission in a large
area near Tamingfu.
Almost as dangerous as war are the
conditions of life in the famine re
gions, according to reports of mis
sionaries and travelers, and with the
coming of spring, the perils from dis
ease are greatly increased.
Something of the conditions under
which the natives have lived during
the winter months, . and from which
cholera, typhus and many other mala
dies must inevitably result, may be
Imagined from Mrs. Sarvis' description
of a village as it usually appears dur
ing the famine:
"Entering the villages one sees lit
tle to indicate that anything unusual
Is happening. Everything - is very
quiet. Streets are deserted. This is
because most of the people are stay
ing in bed to save their strength. The
pangs of hunger are less painful if
they do not try to get up and around.
"Often there is but one outfit of
clothing (and that not any too com
plete) in any one household. That is
worn by the member of the family
who finds it necessary to go out once
In a while, sometimes in a vain effort
to obtain food. Infants and young
children often have no clothes at all,
but are kept in bed or wrapped in
pieces of the old, worn-out clothing
of their elders.
"Many families tear their houses
down, room by room, and use the tim
bers for fuel. When they have no
house left, they retire to a rude sort
of hollowed-out cave in the ground.
"There is nothing startling or pic
turesque, as in the case of floods, tires,
and large concentration camps, but
that only means that want and des
titution are everywhere, instead of in
"Son of a Gun."
The phrase, "son of a gun," is some
times explained as "Son of the Wine
pot or Flagon." There is a word
"goan" which is a dialectal variety
of "gawn" gallon. Another view is
that the expression was originally ap
plied to boys born on board ship.

ANCIENT AND MODERN ROME
World-Famous Buildings Occupy
Sacred Sites in the Old "Capital
of the World."
Ancient Rome was built on the hills
south of the River Tiber. Tradition
regarded the Palatine as the site of
Romulus' Urbs Quadrata. Excavations
have brought to light remains of
earlier settlement and a pre-historic
necropolis. The capitollue was the
center of republican and imperial
Rome. One of the principal ancient
monuments is Hadrian's mausoleum,
which, as the castle of St. Angelo, was
the citadel of medieval Rome. West
of this stood Caligula's circus, in which
Nero tortured the Christians; its site
Is now occupied by St. Peter's, the chtef
shrine of Roman Catholicism, reputed
to be the largest church in the world,
occupying 18,000 square yards and
measuring 435 feet in its highest part.
North of St. Peter's is the Vatican
palace, which covers 13 acres and
comprises over 1,000 halls, chapels and
rooms. The pantheon, built by Agrip
pa in 27 B. C. and restored by Hadrian.
Is said to be the best preserved ancient
building in the city.
Line the Linoleum.
When purchasing linoleum for the
floor It is a good idea to order a lin
ing of felt. This precaution will
probably prolong the use of the lin
oleum. It also deadens sound and
makes the floor warmer in winter. It
prevents the linoleum from expanding
or contracting and it gives a softer
tread, all advantages worth considering.
