Interesting Christmas Programme Is
Given by Students.
The Christmas entertainment given
last night at the Methodist Episcopal
Chinese Mission School, 207 Alder
street, was one of the most successful
and enjoyable ones of the week. The
hall was packed to standing-room. Rev.
L. E. Rockwell and Rev. Chan Sing
Kai presided, and there were remarks
by Bishop Moore, Rev. W. B. HollingS
head and Rev. A. N. Fisher. The rest
of the long and Interesting programme
consisting of solos, duets, recitations,
dialogues and pantomimes, was given
by the Chinese pupils of the school,
who performed their various parts
with great credit. The manner in which
the progamme was caried out showed
great improvement over that of last
Christmas and was a good Indication
of the progress being made at tho
mission. The English spoken was good
and the music rendered was of a high
class. The songs and recitations of
Fannie and Ida Chan, the two little
daughters of the pastor, were particu
larly enjoyable, and the accompani
ments were all played by Miss LIlie
Chan. Sfeid Back, Jr., sang a bass solo
in most acceptable manner, and solos
were also given by Paul M. Louis, Lee
Ling, George Chan and Willie Goo, the
latter with a bugle call by Alfred Lee.
Recitations were given by "Wai Gong,
Wong Howe, Wong Yew, Goo Shung,
Howe Lee, Ida and Fannie Chan, be
sides which there were a number of
prominent workers In the school who
took part In the dialogue and panto
mimes. The Chinese choir rendered a
selection and there was a quartet of
four young Chinese women and an
other of four young men.
The Christmas tree was most gor
geous In its dress of gay-colored
lights and tinsel and the number of
gifts distributed was exceedingly
large. Packages kept coming in until
the close of the programme and the ex
change of presents was much enjoyed
by tho members of the school and their
friends. After the distribution of tho
gifts a most bounteous feast was
served and every guest extended a
hearty welcome. Many prominent
Methodists of the city were present and
enjoyed tho exercises equally as well
as the scholars themselves.

Sailor Pugilist Is Surprised
Thrown Every Time By a

New York, Dec 24. Tom Sharkey, the
pugilist, is the latest exponent of might
and brawn to learn deep respect for Jiu
jitsu. Sharkey Investigated the unassum
ing, harmless looking Japanese art today
under the guidance of Tatsugumi Higashi.
When the two met Sharkey looked at the
diminutive Japanese much asi ho would at
a child, with a smile of pity on his face.
There Is a difference of almost a foot
between their height, while Sharkey
weighs more than twice as much as
Higashi. Aa 4hey came to&clher ihe'Jap

reached down and started catch-as-catch-

which to the spectators looked bad for the
little fellow. Every one expected to see
the big sailor fall on his opponent and
crusn mm. with one of his quick turns,
Higashi raised Sharker from tha flonr
held him in the air and the next moment
planted him on his back on the floor.
