E. .Prudhomme has received recently from his friend, Neil Bray, who has just returned from the Client, a striking sample of "Englieh as she is wrote" by Japanese sign writers. A Japanese hatter and tailor in Tokio informed Mr. Bray that he had paid a handsome sum to hae his sign translated into English. The somewhat etriking result of the translation was as follows: "The color has faded to deepen. To extract color, to deepen, of wool. A oldtell hat & a felt hat to reduild to tipe. A summer hat to expose." Over the entrance of another store dealing in whale products, tho sign was: 1 "Whale and all relating to it am sold." A tailor's sign read: "Tailor to wet resistant cunt." A furrier's store bore the startling information: "Ladies' ti skins made up."
