Opening Up Lhasa.
Lhasa, which Is the capital of
Tibet, for generations was known as
the Forbidden City, because of its
political and religious exclusiveness.
In 1904 a British armed expedition
opened the mysterious old city. Pre-
vious to that time practically every
European traveler had been stopped
In his efTorts to reach the place.

Mexico City—Merciless extermina-
tion of rebels and all those who sup-
port them is the feature of the new
campaign which has begun officially
in Mexico. Throughout regions in-
fested by rebels, whether captained
by Orozco, Zapata or chiefs of less re-
nown, the measures providing for a
suspension of the constitutional guar-
antees of regular trial went into effect

A successful trial run was mad© re-
cently from Paris to London, about
820 miles, by a motor car driven by a
revolving wing, the Paris Figaro
The vehicle, which was designed by
M. Bertrand de Letseps, and is called
the "winged car," has the appearance
of an ordinary motor car, save that
in front it is shaped like the prow of
a ship. From the extremity of the
prow extends a shaft to which is at-
tached the propeller—or revolving
wing—Invented by M. Fiiippl.
The wing Is small, strong and thick
and revolves with a protecting cage,
The engine is of 40 horse power and
rotates the wing by Bhaft and chain
There Is no other mechanism, the
wheels of the car being free, except
for footbrakes. By the side of the
driver is a single lever which con-
trols the clutch and the forward and
reverse movement of the wing. The
IF WIFEY HAD HBARD.
The Cannibals Need Food.
An officer of the French colonial
army brought a letter from the chief
of a group of missionaries in the
southern islands of the Pacific not
long ago, which winds up as follows
"I regret to tell you that our little
company can do little against the fa-
naticism of these poor wretches. More-
over, famine Is ravaging the country,
for the harvest has been destroyed.
Therefore the dispatch of more mis-
sionaries has become urgent."—La Pe-
mary capital punishment on all rebels
who fall into their hands if he is satis-
fled of his captive's guilt.
Comparatively few of the insurgents
availed themselves of the offers of
amnesty extended for almost a month
prior to the putting into effect of the
stern measure of suspended guaran-
tees, and reports from Toluca, in the
state of Mexico; from other districts
in the south, and from Torreon indi-
cate that conditions are little better
perhaps than they were a month ago.
Instead of having disappeared from
the state of Mexico into the moun-
tains of Guerrero, the Zapitistas are
now reported as practically in control
of the villages and haciendas a few
miles south of Toluca, capital of the
state of Mexico. Benjamin Argum-
edo and Murrillo, two of Orozco's offi-
cers, are operating in the rear of
General Huerta near Torreon, while
no attempt is made to disguise the
bfake. In the trial runs a speed of
62 miles an nour was obtained with
2,100 revolutions of the wing a min-
ute. One curious feature was that
the car made no dust.

man. "Do yon know what happened
when a man smoked at this job some
years ago? There was an explosion

turned Mike calmly.

HANDS ITCHED AND BURNED
Warrenton, Va.—"My little girl wbb
troubled with eczema for three years.
Her hands burned and Itched and look-
ed as if they were scalded. She could
not sleep at night; I had to be up all
night to keep her hands in warm wa-
ter. She rubbed her hands and large
white blisters came full of yellow wa-
ter. Then sores cajne and yellow cor
ruction formed. She could not take
hold of anything with her hands. I
used an ointment and tried a treat-
ment, but nothing did her any good,
so I got some Cutlcura Soap and Oint-
ment. After bathing her hands with
the Cutlcura Soap and applying the
Cutlcura Ointment I was astonished
to see the great relief, and Cutlcura
Soap and Cutlcura Ointment cured her
hands In three weeks." (Signed)

•Oh, I did not find one," remarked
the benevolent one with another

Mark of the Broad Arrow Wa
Placed on Pines In Plymouth
In the provincial charter of 1091,
under which the Plymouth colony and
the provinoe of Maine were united
with Massachusetts, It was provided
that all trees of the diameter of 24
Inches and upward at 12 inches from
the ground, growing upon land not
heretofore granted to any private per-
son, should be reserved to the crown
for the furnishing of masts for the
royal navy. Harper's Weekly ob-
A surveyor general of woods was
appointed to see that this provision of
the charter was carried Into effect.
Near the coast all white pines of suit-
able dimensions were marked with the
"broad arrow"—three cuts through
the bark with an ax, like the track of
a crow. This was the king's mark
Long after the revolution had oblit
erated the royal authority men who
had been taught In boyhood to respect
the king's mark hesitated to cut such
In felling a tree it was necessary
to "bed It" to prevent Its breaking.
This was done by cutting the small
growth and placing small trees across
the hollow, so that there should be
no strain upon one section more than
upon another when the monster pine
The mast was hauled out of the
woods on one Btrong sled, whether In
winter or summer, and so many oxen
were required that the hind pair were
often choked In crossing a hollow, be-
ing hung up In their yoke by the pull-
ing of those ahead of them.
A mast hauling was a great event,
and everybody within walking dis-
tance came to see It.

Barber Shops in China.
Since the Chinese revolution a
great many Chinese have had their
queues cut off, and this had led to the
opening of a large number of barber
shops throughout the far east wher-
ever Chinese are located, says an ex-
change. Several progressive business
men of Singapore, anticipating this,
imported a large number of Amer-
ican barber chairs, and they are now
unable to get supplies quickly enough.
It has also been learned that the
Chinese insist on having American
hair clippers, and refuse all other
makes offered them.
It would seem that American manu-
facturers of barbers' supplies should
experience a large Increase In their

There are 22 orphanages In the
Turkish empire, conducted by Ameri-

gives employment to over 10,000 peo-

work Is largely done by the widows
and orphans and Includes rug and
