OLD JAPANESE CUSTOM
Noted General and His Wife In This
. Way Pay Trlbunte to Their
Departed Emperor and
Toklo —General Count Mnrezunk
Nogi. supreme military councillor of
the empire, and hi-, wife, the Countess
Nogi, committed suicide in accord- f
anen with the ancient Japanese cus-
tom as a final tribute to tliclr depart-
ed emperor and friend, Mutsuhito.
Tho death by their own hands of
the famous general and Ills wife was
as dramatic as it was sad. The gen-
eral cut his throat with a short sword
and the countess committed hlrikarl.
Following the Sumural custom, the
couple had carefully prepared their
plans for killing themselves, and
timed them so that they would be co-
incident with the departure forever
from Toklo of the dead emperor.
He and his wifo dressed themselves
In full Japanese costume and drank
a farewell cup of sake from cups
which had been presented to the gen-
eral by Mutsuhito.
DarknesB had fallen and General
Nogi and the countess sat and await-
ed the signal they had agreed upon
to announce their leave-taking. This
was the booming of a single gun In
the palace grounds at Toklo which
was to let the people know that ithe
body of the emperor waB starting on
tho funeral car for Its Invt resting
As the boom of the gun resounded
through the clear still night General
Nogi arose and, grasping in his hand
a short sword, plunged It into his
throat, while the countess stabbed
herself through the body.
The tragedy created a profound sen-
gatlon and expressions of sorrow
were beard on every hand.
General Count Nogi was a national
hero ni Japan. It was he who cap-
tured Port Arthur from the Russians
In 1904 and assured the success of his
I oountry in the battle of Mukden. The
| count was born at. Hagl, in the prov-
; lnce of Choshu in 1849.

Sneed, J. Beal Sneed’s wife. The
couple were arrested in Winnipeg,
Manitoba, a month later, when Sneed
and his wife became reconciled and
returned to Texas. On the 13th of
January, this year, Sneed met Al
Boyce, Sr., in the lobby of a hotel in
Fort Worth and shot him to death,
alleging that the elder Boyce had
made derogatory remarks about Mrs.
Sneed. For ths crime he was tried,

"In my judgment, and I so expressed
it to congress—the provision will be
harmful and at the same time be re-
sented as a censorship of the press.
One of the greatest difficulties now
encountered in the enforcement of tho
law relating to the, second class mail
privilege is that the postoiHce depart-
ment is compelled by law to nfalte in-
quiries into so many publishers’ pri-
vate business. My judgment is that
it should be the constant aim, not
only of the congress, but of the post-
office department to lessen the neces-
sity for supervision of the public
press in the enactment and admin-
istration of postal laws.”
On July 1, 1912, there were 36.412
newspapers and periodicals enjoying
second-class mail privileges. There
were 2,514 dailies, 17,217 weeklies.
6,277 monthlies. 1,351 quarterlies and

Ten-Year-Old Julia Gets Into Bad
Graces of Mother by Giving Tramp
"Be not forgetful to entertain
strangers; for thereby some have en-
tertained angels unawares."
The foregoing quotation is from
chapter xiii, verse 2, Book of Hebrews,
and it is introduced solely because it
constitutes a vital part of this story.
Julia is ten years old and she goes to
Sunday school. It appears that on a
recent occasion the Sunday school
teacher had considerable to say about
this matter of “entertaining angels
unavyares.” Anyway, it made a deep
impression wiili Julia.
A few days after the lesson Julia’s
mother left her in charge of the house
for n few' hours. When the mother re-
turned she went to a particular cup
in the cupboard to extract therefrom
one-half dollar. In this cup is kept
the family pin money, and Julia’s
mother knew' that she had put 50
cents there before she had gone out.
But the half dollar was gone. There
was an expression of- anxiety on
Julia’s face and mother scented mis-
i “Did you take that money?” asked
the mother, somewhat severely.
Julia broke into tears. "I gave it to
a man that came to the back door,”
sobbed the little girl.
"Gave it to a man!” exclaimed the
mother. "What for?"
“I thought he might be’ God,” tear-
fully replied Julia.—Kansas City Star.
