Peking, This will cerlainlv be done by

nothing baa yet been said about the
Chines worka and forces there, where
the next great engagement muat be.
"All talk of peace now ia nonsence.
The Japanese will not talk about it until
they are in Peking. Otherwise, the vast
bulk of the Chinese people would never
know that there had been a war and
the Japanese would have, in a few years,
to do their work all over again. Von
Hanneken haa been toiling to fortify
Slian-Hai-Kwan for mcnths, bat there

London, Feb. 12. A Tokio dispatch

February S. On the 9th two shells from
the eastern forts struck the Chinese
cruiser Chen Yuen, which immediately
sank. The Whih Tam fort has been

line, and ia probahly evacuated. The
Japanese having captured the enemy'i
torpodoes, the enemy's shia are hnn
machine guns nightly in order to avert

The literary held its regular meeting
Saturday evening After a short literary
program the debate was 0iened by four
little boys, who handled the subject very
well considering their youth, followed
by several of the older debaters in tbeir
best style. The question "Resolved,
That more can be learned by travel and
observation than by study and medita
tion," was decided by a two to one vote
n the affirmative, Claude Stone leader,
The next question to be debated is steam
boat vs. railroad, (I have forgot tbe ex
act wording,) Will Hitrkenbotham and
John Gaskill leaders. The society held
an election at this meeting. Wm. Stone
the popular president, who has held tbe
office for three consecutive terms, de
clined the fourth nomination, whereupon
W. D. Burkey was duly elected presi
dent ; D. C. Richardson vice presideat ;
G C. Armstrong secretary; Miss Ida
Young editor. Miss Young has ap
pointed an assistant and a large staff of
reporters with the determination to have
a creditable paper. The next meeting
is postponed until February 23d on ac-
count of the school entertainment which
will take place on the next regular meet
ing night of the literary, Saturday, Feb
ruary 16th. The school entertainment
which promisee to be an enjoyable affair
will close with a pie social, the proceeds

Redland, Feb. 11. We are sorry to
state that Alfred Sprague Jr. is much
worse now, and his friends have little
hopes of his recovery. He is a popular
young man and bis critical condition
saddens the entire neighborhood. He
has lung trouble brought on by a severe
attack of plenresy last fall.
The mysterious disappearanae of Fred
Eckhoff, late of Summerville, Oregon,
which greatly excited and alarmed his
friends last week, has at last been solved
by a letter received from him by B. E.
Courtwrite. It appears that he had
been dispondent and in pool health for
some time, and he started off ostensibly
to consult a physician presumably at
Oregon City, but he wandered down to
Portland where his peculiar actions
caused his arrest and his sanity examined
into. He was found to be suffering from
abbe rat ion, and his friends being un
known he was taken to the asylum . On
receiving the letter from him Mr. Court
write went up to Salem to see him. He
found him rational enough in some re
spects, but in others his mind seemed
unbalanced. He is a man of some means
having property in Summerville and
at Port Angeles, Washington, also
some here. He is unmarried and was
well liked by those who knew him. It
is thought he will soon recover his health
and reason. Rev. Gillett will hold re
vival meetings another, week, as the
meetings are well attended and the in
terest is increasing. Rustic,

Smith negative. The following also
took part in the debate: C. E. Knotu,
H A. Waldron, Halsey Phelps and J.
Helvey. B. Officer, the leader of th
affirmative, who has been a practical
short hand writer for the past twelve
years, endeavored to show tbe benefit
to ie derived from short hand and its
history opto the present time. It was
an able effort on hia part, bat the judges
thought different and det ided in favor of
the negative. They were Harry Smith,
L. Riggs and N. Maboney. After this
followed some recitation, singing and '
the reading of the first issue of the
society's paper called the Umbrella, by
P.. Officer editor, and to judge by the
way it was received by tbe audiance,
proved it a saccett . Jcniata.
Tbe Roads of Antlqnlty.
Perhaps the earliest road on record is
that mentioned by Herodotus as having;
been constructed by Cheops, the Egypt
ian king, in order that stones might be
dragged along it for bis pyramid, say
tbe London Standard. In the opinion
of the Greek traveler the work of m akin a:
tbe road waa as great as that of building;
the pyramid, for it took 10 years to con
struct, and it was composed of polished
stones with figures carved on them.
But this does not compare in magnitude
with the highways constructed by the ,
Peruvians, while medieval Europe wasr
still in a state of semi-barbarous disor
ganization. The two principal roads in
Pern ran from Quito in the north, to
Cuzco. the capital, the one along the
Mndy tnd leTe gtrip 0 COMtf tne other
alon( tbe ptten of the Andes, a re
gion of unparalleled engineering dim-
culty. The length of the second baa .
been estimated at from 1500 to 2000
miles. It crossed sierras buried in snow ;
bridged ravines with walls of solid ma
sonry; mounted and descended precipi
ces by staircases hewn in the solid rock ;
and ran in Interminable galleries along;
the sides of intractable mountains.
Where rivers had to be crossed bridges
were made of stout, pliant osier, twisted
to the thickness of a man's , body, and
stretched over the stream sometimes for
a distance of 200 feet. These cables,
swung side by side, and fastened with
planks so as to form a footway, were
drawn through holes in enormous but
tresses of stone specially constructed on '
each bank, and were secured firmly at
each end to heavy beams of timber. A
railing of similar osier material gave
the passenger confidence as he crossed
the oscillating bridge that sank danger
ously in the middle and mounted rapidly
at the sides. The great highway was 20
feet wide and was built with flags of
freestone covered witb bituminous cem-.
ent. It was measured out by posts set
npat every league; caravansaries and
magazines were stationad at convenient
distances for the Peruvian soldiers on
their military expeditions; and a regular
postal service had been organized by
which highly trained runners, relieved
every five hours, could convey messages
a distance of 200 miles in 24 hours. The
roads were kept in beautiful order, the
inhabitants of a district being responsi
ble for that portion of the highway which
traversed their land. At the same time
it should be remembered that there was
no wheel traffic to cut up the level surface
of the hard pavement. There is consid
erable irony in the fact it was not till the
Spaniards forcibly introduced their so-
called civilization into Peru that the
famous roads began to fall into disrepair.
