"ROUND THE WORLD'
Ladies ol M E Church Give Enjoyable
Trip to Tourists
On the evening of May l.r> we
made the tour of the world eon-
ducted by the ladies of the M.
E. church. Because of the great
pleasure and the intellectual ben-
efit derived we wish to recount
our experiences for the benefit
of those who were so unfortun-
ate as to be unable to improve
the unusual opportunity.
[ After visiting various places in
! America we arrived at Washing-
\ ton, D. C. There we called at
| the White house where we met
Uncle Sam and received our pass-
| ports. During the luncheon,
characterized by pumkin pie and
coffee, we met the Kaiser and
his body guard who were inves-
tigating American politics.
Setting sail from New York
City on the Columbia we shortly
arrived in Germany. At the
wharf we were welcomed by the
stout gretchens with long flaxen
braids. We remarked their neat-
ness, a characteristic of all Ger-
Being' invited to the home of a
German nobleman we had a
chance to view their domestic
life. On every side were evid-
ences of their extreme loyalty,
proclaimed by profusion of flags
of every size. We departed feel-
ing very much gratified, having
been shown various German
: household articles and partaken
of their limburger and beer.
Tne voyage to Ireland was
, long, and owing to the crowded
j condition of the boat, very tire-
, some. On our arrival in Ireland
; we readily realized why it has
'been called the "Emerald Isle."
J On entering one of the largest
stores we were astonished at the
beauty of their linen and needle
work. We stopped at an Irish
cottage for "a bite to eat,"
where a clever Irish maid served
us with sandwiches, Irish pota-
toes, chips and pickles.
j The journey from Ireland, to
I Mexico was a most enjoyable one.
We found our neighbor republic,
I one of the most interesting and
j unique countries we visited in
our whole tour. While still at a
great distance we saw the Mexi-
can flag floating over the custom
house. The strange, fierce look-
ing natives welcomed us gladly
to their shores anil took great
pains to show us all the curiosi-
ties of their land among which
were wonderful raftia baskets,
high sombreros and exquisite
: neddle work. Being so absorbed
1 in their arts we neglected their
* On arriving in Japan the Iran
quility of the natives made us
1 forget our long, rough voyage.
Japan was more picturesque
than any land we had yet visited.
:The chief characteristics noted
were the extreme politeness of
[ the people, -the picturesque cos-
tumes and beautiful sceneries,
j Here we were furnished rice and
tea served in Japan style. We
! were asked to take our places on
'the floor and owing to a great
number who had never eaten
with chop sticks it was sure a
pleasure to watch them try to
eat, and of course we were in
Japan and must do as the Japa
Our next journey proved to be
