- ton as an assistant to Mrs. Mubul

Mrs. Peate's uniform courtesy and ac
commodating nature. She has been
prompt to answer calls, courteous to
tlese who complained and obliging to
all who used the telephone.
Another factor in the growth of the

Well, lady, we have won the game,
That brings to us the champions' fame

But ere the game was half way

I thought we were a goner. .
The opposing side had lots of fun, ,
Because their games stood three to
And the sixth would tell the story.
And so they talked the matter o'er
That they could surely wiii three
And leave them in their glory.
But luck her wreath of roses brought
And skill his wondrous magic wrought
Crowning our best endeavor.
And when the ninth game was dona,
The record then showed two to one,
Reclining in our favor.
The opposing party played the while
Watching the game with frozen smile
Until the tenth game ended.
Ceding to us the champion's game,
They quit the scene with shipwrecked
Where skill and humor blended.

In a letter to her mother, Miss 1

must go back tomorrow, to get my
housekeeping bills made out, and the
buainess turned over to Mias Powell,
and then get moved into tho new
house. The rest of them alt got
moved last week, while 1 was gone,
It will be a relief, in a wny, not to
have Jto think about the meals, etc.,
anv more, thouirh housekeeping at
the hospital isn't such a job as it
would be in a nig house witn a par
lor and hall and all those stairways.
Fridav nurht we went for a walK
down through the Chinese city, as It
was New Year's eve, and we thought
maybe there would be some into rest
ing Blgntu, out mere weren t an
many as we had expected, though
there were dozens of beggars, who
followed us down the streets, as tf
they were determined to stay with
us until they got something out of
One man came niong oy us,
with a long pole swung ovet his
shoulder, and a basket fastened to
each end, which was no uncommon
Hiirht but In one of the baskets was
a nice fat baby that he wanted us to
buy. He followed ub ior a oioca or
more, trying to get us w uuy nun
baby.I suppose New Year's time was
here, and they needed a little money
more than they did a little baby,
iuliih wm undoubtedly a fflrl. OS
they will never sell a Mttle bey if
there is any other way under the
sun of getting money.
We saw so many little girls dressed
all in red, from head to foot, and
with their faces pninted a brilliant
noxiui. Thiv itav that is a purely
Tientsin custom of dressing the lit
tle girls in red, and It certainly is a
uu trikinir costume. The streets
were all lit up with red lanterns of
varying sizes and shapes, and all
r.round us was the booming of giant
f'recrackers and skyrockets and Ko
mn candles. This kept up ior two
days and nights continuously, so our
sleep wasn't quite ai resiiui ami un
broken as it might have been.
On nn- wsv homo we stymied at
one of the fctorcs, and bouifht a few
copies of the kitcha.i fcod, which goes
up to heaven the last week of the old
year, to report to God the behavior
f him fhiloVfn the oflHt vear. and
some of the God of wealth, to which
they sacrifice at the New Year season.
The main ceremonial of New Year's
is to take down the old worn out gods,
end put up new ones, especially
those made of paper, which don't last
long. They say that the Chinuse are
supposed, if they have any grudges
or old quarrels, to make them up be
fore the beginning of the New Year,
so they can start in the new year
with a clean slate, then of course,
they tire supposed always to pay up
i.U their old debts, even if they have
to pawn thuir clothes to do it. "
Before we went out to see the
sights we went over to the hospital
and helped Miss Gregg and the
nurses make their little meat patties,
which are the special dish for the
New Year's celebration. The people
are supposed to stay up all night
making them, but I guens they don't
adhere to that custom any more
closely than a lot of thoir others.
They take a little chunk of dough,
roll it out like a round pit, but about
the size of a small baking powder
can, then put a spoonful of the
gound-up meat and vegetable, and
proceed to bring it together into a
little turnover, with the edges to
gether all the way, so that none of
the meat will spill out when it is
put into the boiling water. It looks
very simple, and seems to be for
the Chinese, but you should have
seen the ones we made, the most that
you could say for them was that
they stuck together. We worked an
hour, an-i when we left the dishot
of meat looked as full as when we u
gan, but they finally got them all
made up and ready for the next day
On Saturday we had to go over and
help the nurses eat them, We could
tell which were the ones we had made.
They looked just as ungraceful after
they were boiled as when we left
them. We have had them almost ev
ery day as a present from different

along fine, didn't have any trouble
making ourselves understood, though
Dr. Schaum did most of tho talking.

FISII1N TIME AGAIN
Fishy, fishy In the brook ,
For you 1 will iplnn and scheme
To get you out of the stream
Won't yuu bite my little hook?
Open season has come to,
Got my licensu ami my lunch.
1 want you strung on my bunch
Fried good ajd brown, I want yon.
Hunting suit and rubber boots
What's the use to be afraid T, -If
you gut 'em you must wade,
WildtH kind of Ufa that suits.
Riffles, riffles, foam in' white ,
Up and down and In and out.
Lookuy, see that rainbow trout.
Come on, fishy, won't you bite T
Now you're deep and then you rise
Fdgln' up towards my line,
For a catch you will bo fine
Hope he grabs one of fy files.
Stop your talkln', fellows, hey!
Real him In, its Iota of fun,
Now boo what you all have done.
Just my luck, ho got away.
Upon green tnusa rocks you stand
Swing your line and make a cast
Reel him In, but not too fast,
Take him off with your left hand. '
Twigs are crackbV, Hats! hart '
You have gone up itrestn to tar.
. Jt's lung -way to your car,.,. . . ,
You must return in the dark. t
Care not If It's gettln' late,
, With your flashlight you can
Just as happy as can be,
In your basket there's some weight.
