One of the transforming agencies litis

The railways, now taken over by the
pov;rnirerit, are rather of the Enro
penn than the American type. They
are built with Rreat care and solidity,
the siopes exactly shaped and irriissml,
the short brides of stone, the longer
ones of iron.
The stations are at present In about
the same condition as those in Ameri
ca forty years nco; 'but the govern
ment has under const ruction a splendid
central terminal in Tokyo. Trains run
very slowly; even the expresses make
under miles an hour, but atone for
It by remarkably low fares about 2
cents a mile for first-class and a third
as much for third-class.
The cars resemble those of Switzer
land, always with connection through
the train, hut the first and second-class
coaches are more or less subdivided In-
-'ipes and staterooms. From Asia.

CAPT. JACK CRAWFORD, THE
SCOUT WHO WROTE POETRY
When a bit of sunshine hits ye
After passin' of a cloud.
When a fit of laughter gits ye
An' yer spine is feelin' proud,
tiun't fergit to up and fling it
At a soul that's feelin' blue,
Fer the rninlt that ye sling It
it's a boomerang to you.
That was -the philosophy of Capt
Jack Crawford, the poet-scout. A poet
and a scout I A strange combination,
but he excelled as both. John Wallace
Crawford was an Irish boy who came
to this country shortly before the Civil
war began and euJIsted In the Union
army when he was only sixteen years
old. While lying In a hospital, a sister
of mercy taught him to read and write.
After the war Crawford drifted
West and became a miner in the Black
Hills of South Dakota. When the
Black Hills rangers were organized
to protect the miners from hostile
Sioux and bands of highway robbers,
Jack was chosen chief. In one fight
be killed three desperadoes.
At the outbreak of the Sioux war In
1870 Captain Jack enlisted as a scout
and rose to the position of chief of
scouts for the Fifth cavalry. After
the battle of Slim Buttes, S. D., where
Chief American Horse was killed,
Captain Jack, who was also corre
spondent for the New York Herald,
gave the world the first story of this
fight. Crawford rode to Fort Laramie,
350 miles away, in three days and a
half, outriding five relays of couriers,
but he killed two horses doing It.
During the Apache wars in Arizona
Crawford was again in the saddle as
a scout for Gen. Edward Hatch. In
1SS1 he took the trail of the notorious
chief, Victorio, and after a scout of
1G days, located his camp In the Can
deleria mountains in Mexico. Captain
Jack then made another remarkable
ride to the nearest post. As a result
of his news, Victorio's camp was at
tacked by Mexican troops and the old
chief and many of his warriors were
When the Indian wars were over,
Captain Jack began writing clown
the verses which he had recited to his
comrades around many a campfire on
the Indian campaigns. He went on
the lecture platform and In a short
time the "Poet-Scout" was one of the
best-known of the old-time scouts In
the country, second only to his old
comrade of the Fifth cavalry, Buffalo
Bill. In a little over a month after
Buffalo Bill's death, Captain Jack fol
lowed him on the Bong Trail. He died
In New York February 23, 1017.
