hand to hand working in his parti-
cular sphere. The letter proceeds:
M1 can not refrain from (.ailing at-
tention to a situation that is very
unsat'factftry. I have information
from dependable sources and from all
sections of the country that farmers
in the Indian service devote most
of their time to work associated with
the business end of the agencies; that
our farmers with a few notable ex-
ceptions. are not in fact practical
and helpful as farmers; that they
do not go out among the Indians on
their farms as they should and as

after. It is almost discouraging to
contemplate that after years of em-
ployment of men who have been es-
pecially charged with the work of
advancing the farming interests of
the Indians no more has been*accom-
See Visions of Work.
As suggested, such a letter u few
years ago from an Indian office
chief would have resulted In a good
laugh and a return to the chess
game. But this commissioner of In-
dian affairs has takeu his job so
seriously and has been able to put
across several little things that
served to interest and exercise the
employes of the bureau, that Indian
farmers who have been using felt
pads on their office chairs to keep
the shine off the seats of their trous-
ers are seeing visions of overalls:
and'the manicure lady in the corner

ously thinking of studying how to
treat callouses and corns on the
It begins to look somewhat like
the Indian farmer is going to be-
gin his spring plowing. Th« com-
missioner says further along in his
letter that he wishes word to go
down the line immediately that every
Indian service farmer shall give his
time to actual farming and that un-
der no circumstances shall he con-
tinue. as so generally has been done,
making the office work the first
consideration and the promoting of
the farm work of the Indians sec-
ondary. The letter seems to be in
real earnest by the closing sentence
of the paragraph, which recites as
clearly as a typewriter may, "These
things must be reversed."
But the farmer is not the only
employe of the reservation that has
need to look about him. The com-
missioner says: "Nor am 1 satis-
fied with the fact, as I am now con-
vinced, that the superintendents,
generally speaking, spend altogether
too much time in the office, attend-
ing to duties that properly belong to
clerks, when the superintendent, to
accomplish the best results, should
be out in the field, among the In-
dians. looking into their home com-
forts. after heahh conditions, and in

other relationships, that they may be

It is almost too much of a
conunon-sense proposition—that with
which Mr. Sells closes his letter—to
have come from a bureau that has
never particularly distinguished it-
self in behalf of the Indians of this
country, which is in substance that
reservation employes should know
the Indians and know them well;
should understand their condition
and substantially aid them in their
forward march toward self-support
and equipment for citizenship. But
the commissioner seems to believe
that is what he is here for.
That Mr. Sells is something of a
joker is seen in a paragraph wherein
he asserts that he does not antici-
pate that the carrying out of his sug-
gestions will bring about any appre-
ciable congestion in the "paper work"
of the offices. It is assumed that
the labor of the farmer and the su-
perintendence of the superintendent
will not rob the offices of assistance
to an extent that the offices will be-
come cluttered up with undisposed-of

to the government because it was the

"rice-Christian" that type of Chinese!
convert which was easily won over
to any creed so long as he was sup-
ported in idleness, has had his day,;
according to the American Episco- •
pal Mission in this city. The mis-!
sions of all denominations today are i
making their appeal to the better ^
There was a time when mission-1
aries came to China with the idea j
that there was no time to lose in (
mustering the whole army of Chinese
under Christian standards. To make
• rice-Christians' was easy. For daily
supplies of rice, millions of beggars
and coolies could be induced to
swear they were believers in any-
thing. But that was not converting
There were, however, few mission-
aries of any denomination who
worked so unwisely. It cannot be
said that the man of fanatical en-
thusiasm has been entirely elimi-
nated but the average type of mis-
sionary today is far more practical.
It is the idea of the Episcopal mis-
sionaries and their British associates
to prepare Chinese to convert their
own people. They point to the recent
formation of the independent "Holy
Catholic church" in China, which is I
conducting tts own affairs. This j
successful establishment of an "in-
dependent" church, the first in China.
is the result of the system of edu-
cation conducted jointly by the
Church of England at home and in
Canada, and the Episcopal Church
of the United States.
In the matter of preaching, the
Chinese themselves cannot be beaten
