WRITES OF THE ORIENT
MISS NORINE LARIMER WRITES
IMPRESSIONS OF CHINA
Tslls of Many Interesting Things in

Miss Norine Larimer of Weather-
ford came on Saturday to visit her
sister, Mrs. H. M. Coyner, and re-
turned Tuesday. Miss Larimer spent
several years as teacher in the Philip-
pines, coming home last Junie, and ex-
pects to return in October, as she finds
life in the Orient very agreeable.
The following article was written by
Miss Larimer and will be read with
interest by Edmond people:
A few months ago there was an ar-
ticle in ihe Manila Times warning peo-
ple not to go Canton, China, saying
that one took his life in his hands
when he did so, but wanting to see the
dangers through my own eyes I de-
cided to go—1 confess it was with a
little fear and trembling that I left
Hong Kong at nine o'clock one night.
There were two other lady teachers
beside myself. We chose a night boat
up the river so that we would have the
following day to "do" Canton and re-
turn the next night. The Chinese boat,
in the next chair and had the pleas-
ure (?) of seeing not only the accident
but also the guide turn a corner and
go out of sight, I had my men stop
for 1 wouldn't go on and leave Mrs.
Templeton alone, yet neither of us
dared get out of our chairs. We
could do nothing but sit there and let
the always ready mob gather around
us—but we didn't have to wait long,
for the guide discovered his loss and
came running back. By that time the
coolie had managed somehow to get
out, but he was hurt and the chair
was broken so we could not move on
until we got new ones. The strange
thing over here in any sort of acci-
cent is that no one goes to the rescue
of the injured. It was always the same
in the Philippines. The natives would
gather around and look but never
lend a hand. If there was an Ameri-
can within half a block, he would rush
in apd take up the injured and care
for him. I have seen it in cases of
drowning and street accidents many
tinjes. While our boat was unload-
ing her cargo in the harbor here, a
Chinese fell overboard. The sailors
thflew him a float and bamboo pole,
bu| unfortunately he could not swim
enough get to them and before any-
e realized it an American jumped
fitter hiru. It looked so dangerous,
fon it was between the launch and big
