MISS TCHENG OF
There are signs everywhere of the waking up of the
indolent old world, but one of the most significant is that
a Chinese woman, Miss Tcheng, is enroute for Paris to
report the peace conference for the newspapers of China.
Miss Tcheng, who is well known in her own country,
is the first Chinese woman lawyer, and she holds a cer
tificate from the University of Paris giving her the right
to practice law in the French courts.
There have been some educated women in China, al
ways. But their education was as a rule, purely Chinese,
and their range of action closely confined. For a Chinese
woman to be fitted for public service abroad, and to un
dertake such a journey independently, may seem a small
matter, but after all it is a milestone toward modernism in
the progress of an ancient race. The journey across the
world may be long, but it is a trifle compared to the dis
tance that the Chinese women have come in their struggle
out into the world.
Those persons who believe there still exists such a
thing as isolation would do well to consider Miss Tcheng of
Pekin and Paris.
Government 'troops used sulphur 'fumes' to smoke the
Spartacans out of the Lichtenberg lunatic asylum, where
they had taken refuge, according to a dispatch received
from Berlin yesterday.' Why go to all that trouble when
the Spartacans were congenially and appropriately located?
There may be war and rumors of war, but neverthe
less peace is on the way. The good old two-headed calf is
once more reported, this time in a Maryland paper. . We
may be prepared also to expect the return of the sea ser
pent to our popular coast resorts next summer.

WAR CHARITIES IMPOSTERS.
An illuminating characterization of war-charity
grafters was made in a report submitted by a New York
official to the military affairs committee of the United
States senate. There are the "100 per cent boys" who
pocketed all the' money they collected from generous citi
zens, even cashing the checks themselves; there are the
"65 per cent boys", who turned into legitimate war char
itis only 35 per cent of what they collected;; there were
the "30 per cent boys", and there were the boys who took
not only the money but everything else they could get.
To correct this evil, a bill has been introduced in the
New York legislature requiring a certificate of registra
tion for anybody who wants to promote any public bazaar,
sale, entertainment or exhibition, to raise money for any
charitable, benevolent or patriotic purpose. It must sub
sequently be shown how such money was collected, who
the contributors were, what salaries were paid and what
all the expenses were for.
There ought to be such a system everywhere for keep
ing tab on charities, especially war charities. It may be
granted, that the majority of appeals are legitimate and
well managed. It is for their benefit, however, as well as
the public benefit, to control the others.
A great many cities over the country have begun ex
tensive advertising campaigns in order to attract capital
and needed industries. Such a campaign might be pro
ductive of good results here, since conditions seem ripe
for a healthy and substantial growth. .
A prominent eastern school worker says that child
ren are saucy to their parents because the parents are
saucy to their children. Careless children! They should
have trained their parents more carefully.

The head waiter, who knew ui both,
gave us a very nice table on the bal

ordered and were waiting to be served.
when, bearing a loiul voice objecting to
being given a certain table, I turned.
To my surprise, the owner of the ob
jecting voice proved to be Mr. ecott.
Blanche Ortou "was his companion. They
were finally seated to please him, but

"Did you see Mr. Forbes, the gentle

''Yes, madamet I know Mr. Forbes
quite well. I often wait upon him."
"Tell him, please, that his wife would
like to speak to him."
The garrulous waiter immediately
crossed to Neil. He looked surprised,
but rose and camo over at once.

Colonel John L. Mays, commander of
the old Third Oregon regiment that
helped to mako up some of the most
brilliant pages of tho world war's his
tory, was an informal visitor at the of
fice of Governor Olcott this morning,
and in tho midst- of an admiring and
respeetful circle of state officials gave
a running, scintilating account of his
observations and experiences in France.
Ho corroborated the statement so often
mado that in a sense the Amorican dash
and indomitable courage and resource
fulness won the war. Ho told also of
how the appearance of tho American
at tho front checked both tho retreat
of the Fernch and the onslaugti ot the
Gormans and thus turned the tide. In
those first days he was in touch with
many French eommandors and he help

statement that the Yankees wore thoro

In the issuing of the patent it was
customary in those days for tno general

about them and the part they were
playing in tho war. Throughout his
service in France he had repeated oc
casions to be proud of the Oregon boys,
who made for themselves a reputation
among the French troops and civilians.
In fact, he considers that our boys hsrvo
done some of the best advertising Ore

being first over tho top, and as among
tho finest in appearance.
