The view Is assiduously cultivated
In certain circles that the Japanese
press is one mass of self-glorlousness
and that it Is always a unit on great
public questions, but nowhere Is self-

For Instance, nothing would seem
more a subject for egotism than the
progress of the nation in learning and
science, but long editorials are appear
ing daily crying out that educational
reform should be the great cry of the
day in Japan. Then the standard of
living is another bone of contention.
Some hold cut for the old standards
that produced the great race capable
of making the history of the last fifty
years, but the Chugwai Shogyo of
Tokyo, after citing European and
American efforts to raise the people's
living standard, says solemnly:
“But, in the Orient, the governed are
considered by the ruling classes as so

of the people are neglected. Conse

Japan Furnishes Playing Cards.
There are many commodities which
have been exported from Japan for
the first tim e since the beginning of
the war. One of them is playing cards,
for which large orders have been
placed with Japanese makers. The to
tal value of the orders was estim ated
at a recent date to be in excess of
$7,600,000. Most of these cards have
been consigned to Europe, the greater

fact, seems rather partial to excep
tionally robust persons, and, in every
day parlance, the stouter they are the
easier they fall. The reason for this
is simple. Frail persons are accus

selves in the knowledge of their weak
ness and liability to sickness, and thus
escape some of the ills that overtake
the stronger ones. The robust ones,
especially the man who "never had a
sick day in his life,” come to regard
their health as being immune from at
