tone: "Hy the way. I'll tell Stevens

She begun to fold the money Into a
neat little square pocket. "Ih, please.
It will be lens awkward."
Already the wall of pretense was
swung magically between them, and
she sheltered thankfully behind It,
licking her bruises, hut the senator,
looking over, was well content It

gnlety. This was so different from
the way men usually talked to her.
She told him to meet her at the ftttz

She told herself that this Was In a

She deliberately shut her eyes to the
miracle of how this was to lie accom

light hearted In spite of her pullor

Changslm. Its capital ; and have threat
ened besides the busy life of Hankow,
metropolis of Ilupeh province, on the
north bank of the great river. Chung

forces and was systematically looted.
The resident of Changaho Is noted
for his self esteem. He considers
himself China's "top -side-man." Cap

which Is occupied by a largo lake

In Hunan the necromancer has ex
erted much power and Changshn was
so well protected by the lucky con
stellation under which It was founded
and by the Holy Hill which guards
It, that It was' thought a profanation
for the "foreign devil" to enter. In
1010 there were serious riots, iniilnly
directed against the growing commer

Among the great men who have

Tseng Kuo Fan, whose cooperation
with "Chinese" Cordon was largely
Instrumental In pulling down the
Talplng rebellion. Ceneral Tseng was
not only a soldier and a statesman,
but a literary man as well, and his
collected works of l.'fl books were ed
ited by 1.1 Hung Chang.
Changshn lies on the north-south
China railway. Trains compete with
the light draft steamers which make
the 2-0 mile trip from Hankow. With
about Inhabitants, It rules In
peace time a province of i.l'.non.non,

One' of the Interesting sights of the
city Is tho wheelbarrows that climb
Stairs. Some distance ahead of the
regulation wheel there is another
smaller or.e. In climbing over flagstone
stops or bridges,' the bundles of the
wheelbarrow are lowered until the
auxillury wbeel rises above the next
higher step. Then the wheelbarrow,
which often curries three or four hun
dred pounds, see-saws from wheel to
wheel until the next level stretch of
flagstones Is reached.
