SOME CHINESE ANECDOTES.
Stories Illiifttrating nml Explaining
Chinene C haracter and Rahil*.
From the London Glebe.
The average Briion can n ver under
stand why the Col n al and American fear
the Chinese. Yd it is int lligihe enough
evtn at this distance from the Pacific.
Ihe Jew is not exactly popular on the
continent, neither is the Aberdonian any
where. A Chinese as a trader "is a Jew
l lus an Armenian plus a Greek plus a
Down-East Yankee;” or. io put it short-
J.v, he has the commercial instinct more
highly developed than any other race.
, The main cause of the dislike with which
|he is regarded is therefore patent. His
I shiewdneys is as remarkable as his row
ers of observation. A good story in this
connection is told by l>r. Morrison, the
P< kin correspondent of the Times, whose
i telegrams on the Chinese crisis a year
| cr two ago used to send cold shivers
down the backs of her majesty’s niinis
j ters. because they were always at lease
a day ahiad of offlc al communications
He was trave ing a= a Chines? u > the
Yangtze on a river beat. "The smart ch ef
| officer came for ray fare. and.as I thought,
charg-d me too little. I expressed my
suri rise, and said that l boli;v and he
fare was $7 “So i i<.“ he r pli- and. ‘but we
only charge missionaries $5. and l knew
you were a missionary even before you
told mo.’ ” This was British aeutene s. A
little while before Dr. Morrison, who is
as little lrke a missionary as may be, tra
veled from Shanghai to Tien Tsin. also
in Chinese dress. “Th ■ conversation was
! short, sharp, and emphatic. The Chine e
compradore on the boat looked at me
; s archingly. What pidgin belong you?' he
asked, meaning, ‘What is your business?
To try him, humbly I answered, ‘My be
long Jesus Christ pidgin'—that is T am
a missionary;’ to which he instantly and
with some scorn replied ‘No dam fear!' ”
This was Chinese acuteness. So consc'ous
is the Celestial of his own commercial
ah lity that thirty years ago a Pekin of
ficial said to an American traveler: “Eng
lishman and Melican man come here
rnakee big pidgin; bimeby long come Ger
| man man; some time you rnakee s-e Chi
nese eatee everything up”—a prediction
which is being fulfilled everywhere in the
Far East and the Archipelago.
The Chinese are not so much law-nbid
ing as law-evading. They never know
anything they do not wish to know, and
none can be denser than they when they
choose. Not so long ago a Chinese was
summoned to a Melbourne E J oiice Court for
being in possession of a tenement unfit
tor human habitation. The case was
clearly proved, and he was lined £l. But
in no way could he be made to under
stand that a tine had been inflicted. He
sat in his place as imperturbable and ex
pressionless as only the almond-eyed can
sit. and all that the court could get out
of him was, “M.v no savvy, no savvy.”
After saying this in a tone of hopeless
resignation, he relapsed Into stolidity.
Hereupon rose well known lawyer.
“With your worship's permission,” he
said, “I think I can make the Chinaman
understand.” He was permitted to try.
Striding up to the poor Celestial, he
shouted to him. “John, you are two
pounds!” ‘‘No dam fear!" cried the Aslan
mystery, with an Indescribable expression.
“Clhly one!” The word “dam.” so fre
quently used by the Chinese, is a legacy
of the days when hard swearing was a
more fashionable Western accomplishment
than it is now. They use it without the
slightest idea what it means. For iiv
j stances, a Chinese cook in Sydney, when
applying for a situation, concluded a long
list of qualifications by the startling an
! r.ouneement: “My Clistian- man, mum;
my eat beef; my say goddam.” Dr. Mor
rison say® his "Laoban could say in Eng
lish, or pidgin, ‘chow, sit down, all right,
one piecee. and goddam.' This last exotic
he had been led to consider as synony
mous with very good.”
The passive resistance of the Chinese is
as remarkable in the govrenment as in
the individual. During the reign of one
of the greatest of their rulers, who died
in 1723. the patriotic pirate Koxinga rav
aged the coasts of Kwang-tung and Fu
kien, and proved so strong that the im
perial junks w’ere unable to cope with
him. In these circumstances the Emperor*
hit upon the happy expedient of ordering
all the people inhabiting the southern sea
board to retire inland nine miles. This
extraordinary command was not only
obeyed, but it answered its purpose.
Koxinga. baffled in bis plans, contented
himself with driving the Dutch out of
Formosa, and was eventually ennobled
under the title of the “Seaquetling Duke,”
by which means he was transformed in
to a peaceable and law-abiding subject.
The author of the “Middle Kingdom,”
commenting on this incident, says that
a power strong enough to compel an
enormous population to leave their vil
lages and towns ought to have been
strong enough to equip a fleet and
crush the pirates. Only that the results
of just such topsy-turvy methods of gov
ernment are the latest news from the
East, the whole story might be regarded
as a myth.
Most of the policemen In Australia are
Irishmen, whose genius for humorous
blundering loses nothing cf its quality un
der the Southern Cross. Here is an in
stance. Many Chinese names are remin
iscent of a burlesque, and are, probably,
merely barbarian caricatures of the origi
nals. Of these Foug Fat Ah Su, and Ah
Foo are the most common. A newly-ap
pointed crier in a county court was or
dered by tlie judge, in a case in which a
Chinese was a witness to call for Ah
Song. The son of Erin looked puzzled, and
darted a look at the bench to try and dis
cover if Jhis was a colonial joke, but su
ing the judge as grave as an undertaker,
he turned to the audience and blandly in
quired, “Ginllemen. will any of you fa
vor his honor with a song?” In anofh* r
court anew repres ruadve of the majesty
of the law was ordered by the magistrate
to go in search of th- official interpreter,
whose name was Ah Hat. *’< onstable, go
for Ah Kat.” “Yes, your worship. Is it a

Letter in Kansas City Star.
Slowly starving infantry, parts of two
volunteer battalions, were sprawled about
in the dusty moonlit plaza of Alphonso
that night. A 6mall group of fagged
atul famished war scribes were among
them, and these men commented serious
ly upon the ugly and thankless proposi
tion w hich life is. Now and then a com
missioned officer swore loudly at his men,
alternately calling them bloodthirsty dev
ils and nerve-shattered young ladies. The
enlisted men cursed back in half-audible
growls. In the eir was that queer mur
muring undertone which can always be
heard in the midst of American troojKs
jus* after a bloody brush with the “nig
gers.” And straight above the foul and
ancient town a hot, white midnight moon
stared down tauntingly. Never to he for
gotten is that last January night at Al
phonso, way down in one of the lower
provinces of Luzon.
March a battalion from dawn to dark
for ten rainless days; feed it at rare and
irregular intervals upon bacon and hard
tack. charge it upon live, smoking rebel
trenches once or twice every twenty-four
hours, and on the tenth day keep up
the programme, except for the bacon
and hardtack—then look at the battal
ion, if you are interested at all in devil
ish inood.i of the causes of crime. You
will understand then the necessity of a
p* edition hereafter and the likelihood of
its being crowded. )
The service in Luzon teaches that It is
n place of fathomless mud during ihe
mins, and of terrorizing heat when the
rains are not. It also teaches a man to
truly sweat and to look at tragedy with
out squinting. But more and most of all
in Luzon a man learns, too, what a gaunt,
helpless animal he is—learns it from the
hitting lesson which a craving stomach
teaches. And this Is a lesson which kills
pride, thoughts nnd dreams of homo.
* * * The men in the plaza of dirty
Alphonso learned this lesson that day,and
that night it was impressed upon them.
Suddenly the sentry on duty at the
north end of the town shouted. The
men in the plaza jumped to their feet
and listened. Then faint and far off
could bo heard the tinkle of the pack
train’s bellmare. The rations were com
ing! Never in profane history of the
world did such a yell ascend ns from the
plaza of Alphonso. The nearest thing to
me was a vicious,sun-cured pony which
had jolted me shabbily for ten hours that
clay. I hugged the pony, and the ugly
beast, bereft of all tine sentiments, kicked
in he front of a bamboo shack, to which
I had tethered him. The soldiers slapped
each other facetiously and were men
with human hearts once more. Feed a
dog if you would have him follow you,
for there is something of the man in him.
Not long after that there, pounded into
•the plaza a train of the hardest toilers,
man and beast, in Uncle Sam’s pay. They
wore marvelous to look at—gaunt, shag
gy, unkillabie mules, each standing up
under 200-odd pounds of government
straights—a dozen tanned, haggard and
ju-t as unkillable packers, handling the
big train with an intense but whispered
profanity, for the day and the trail and
the miles had killed the voices in their
I’noker* nml Soldier*.
The mules pushed the soldiers out of
the plaza, swung into line and smelled
the necks of their neighbors, at the same
time wiping clear the foam from their
mouths. There seemed to be passing
through the herd now a general Inquiry
as to how each other had fared through
the prolonged hellishness of the hvke.
Meanwhile the packers, assisted by spirit
willing, but nevertheless guttural, pro
fanity. unloaded and unclnched; and the
pile of provisions grew hard in the plaza.
The soldiers crowded near, and one un
wise one spoiled the whole system by get
ting into the boss packer’s way.
“Get back, you and n Infants. You’ve
grubbed twice since we have.” The voice
of the pack train’s chief would have been
a roar naturally, hut its strength had
gone from him this night. With towering
irony he finished: ‘‘Mamma’ll have dtn
nev for babies in a litey while.”
Honestly the love bonds which exist be
tween packers and infantrymen would be
easily severed. And this is strange, too.
for few are the packers who have not
“soldiered” at oue time in Uncle Bam'
service. Asa matter of fact, what hove
these strong, strange, rough men not
done at one time in their lives? Old Dad
wi.l tell you of the days in Uncle Sam’
cavalry when it was the brawn of arm
and the granite of one’s fists which beat
its way into the superiority of the non
com’s stripes—the days when the troop
ers hunted Geronimo and the Apache Kid
rode long, lived hard and shot true.
Scar Face, the greaser, will tell you how
lie smuggled gallons of Mexican rnezeal
across the Rio Grande, when nobody was
watching but the man in the moon, and
about the wads of money he made out
of the white soldiers on pay day*. Dirty
Ike. the cook of the train, went wffth
Reno when the squadrons of the unlucky
Seventh Horse separated! to corral Sitting
Bull in th** seventies. Dirty Ike will tell
you how he helped to bury the dead of
Custer's command in the circling shadows
of vulturcd wings, nnd how the dead, men
looked ’way out in Montana that hot
j lin e day. Brooken Foot Bill, my beta
of friends in pack train 13. will toil you
how lie hit an iceberg while rounding
(’ape Horn in a whaler, and lost his per
sonal profits of three years’ toil—slo.oo*
worth of sperm oil. He tells of dealing
faro in the black reek of crtm<* of Fort
Said, on the Suez. Ah, the Broken Foot
has been u wanderer.
Yes, in a pack train you will see men
whose natures have led them in all the
dark places on the surface of the earth.
They 'have found gold pickings in some
of these place*, they will tell you. and vil
lainous whisky in all. In the desirable
things of civilization—in the soft wiles of
fair women, they are as •little children;
but if you are a white man. and need a
fri. nd. a dollar, a square meal, or all
three.' these, packers will growl at you,
give it to you. and tell you to come again.
And you who would write hooks, procure
a jug of good whisky if possible, hut whis
ky nt all events, strike a packers’ camp
at night, when the mules are quiet over
their forage, and you will hear tab* whin
the color of till lands and the hearts of
I mat • | And do not forge; to
tuke the Jug out to the lonely fellow
whose trick it Is to guard the herd that
night, for he will not forget you if you
fall to remember him.
But I was writing it out that night at
Alphonso. As each paakage was removed
Bom the back of ft mule the sweating ani
mal moved out of line, shook himself with
many satisfied grunts, and then sank
d>wn noisily upon the turf of the plaza to
scratch his numb and itching back in
the only way he knew. This process was
performed with many more grunts of In
tense pleasure, and even after the killing
day under the packs, there was a general
coltish kicking in the herd when- the ro’l
ing was over. After rolling the mules
gathered together about the bellmare ond
raised their voices in mighty magnitude to
the moon, demanding the waror and for
age for which they had worked hard all
day. Oh, the din of that midnight cho
rus! One would think that a big chain
of mountains were dying with sins unfor
given. And rhe bellmare in the midst of
her noisy adorers, kept up a coquettish
and incessant kicking and biting. This is
why she is loved so and sought after, the
packers will tell you.
The Lnd> of the Herd.
This tody of the herd is very important,
and her knowledge of the fact is appar
ent. She must have the temper of a Jez
ebel and the icy soul of a Filipino female
to hold her ascendency. Should she warm
a liitlc toward some great shaggy head
which bends rear her adoringly. there
would be a scandal in rhe herd, and the
bellmare and her favored one would be
kicked out of the business promptly. But
so long as she kicks and squeals impar
tially toward all. the great siupkl burden
bearers follow whither tshc leads.
“Beat a woman." observe the packers,
with the large wisdom of aingle men, and
exiles from things feminine, "if you would
have her love you.” These men achieve
such heights of wisdom because they
know mules and bellmares.
The lady of the herd carries no loads.
The packer in the advance leads her, and
by virtue of her heartlessaes* she keep*
the whole herd in her train. If it were
not for her the puckers could not keep
the mules Together, for their beads are
free from halter or bride when on the
trail. A bell is strapped about her neck,
and in the dark the mules of a train fol
low the sound and are satisfied. Where
the bell is there is also peace In the herd;
when the bell is silent the mules under
take to learn the reason, and in frenzied
search they cover vast tracks of territory
in all directions, which is naturally both
ersome for the packers.
My head was full of the marvel of all
these things that flight in Alphonso. 1
saw one of the big beasts in a careless
fit of affection place his head too near the
heels of the belle. She used her heel as
usual, and landed heavily. For a second
the mule was blinded, staggered, then (oh.
the shame, the crime of It!) he forgot
himself and kicked back t the lady! I
believe he was bruised for life by the rest,
before he got out of the herd.
Tiny (ires dotted the outskirts of the
plaza now, and the glorious smell of bacon
and hardtacks was in the air; it was h
glorious smell, but it maddened me. L
was quite a stranger to the infantrv bat
talions. having hyked for the first time
with them that day. And I had no ii
tions! You who have never been in
similar condition are wholly strangers to
the keen, ragged edge of the word suf
fering. Suddenly a brilliant thought came
to me. 1 went over to the cook of the
pack train, who had a big fire started.
"Please, sir,” 1 said eagerly, “can 1
get you another pail of water?” He sized
mo up for . moment, feeling the edge of
a butcher knife. Then he kicked an empty
bucket In my direction and said:
I returned with the water and became
very busy poking the tire, washing ihe
coffee pot nnd keeping out of the cook's
way. Suddenly he seemed to warm to me.
“Who in hell are you?” he asked kind
ly. I explained briefly, and added, deem
ing it wise to be honest, that I had lost
a pony the day before; that I didn’t know
the infantry outfit in the town; that I
was hungrier than the she-wolf of the
Scriptures. In conclusion I asked hastily.
“Will I get Home water?”
The little iflres of the soldiers were
embers now. nd beside them (he men
from the states were lying in the moon
light. rapturously rolling about in that
big and general sympathy which is ?n
adjunct of tobacco and strmg coffee. At
last the packers came in from the mules.
The animals had been watered and fed.
and only the herd guard was left with
“Come and get it while it’s hot, you sav
ages.” ordered the cook. Then he male
mo swell up until I was giddy by obsei v
“Here’s an extra mess tin. if you haven't
got one.” And by way of introduction,
he concluded: “Fellers, this is one of
them short-handed guys a* writes for the
papers. He lost his mount and is out of
grub. The only good thing about him 1
know is that he isn’t one of them and and
Old Dad. Scar Face nnd Broken
Then I met Old Dad and Scar Face and
Brooken Foot. They made a man out of
me with coffee and bacon, and treated me
as if I hod been otie always, and they
told me wonderful tales which I have yet
to repeat. Ah, that was a marvelous
night in the moonlight at dirty Alphonso!
When most of the fellows were drowsy
Broken Foot Bill went to the herd to
take his trick at the guard. I went with
him. Listen to the words Broken Foot
said to me that night and you will see
his big heart:
“See that big roan brute with a hole
in his side?” he asked. “Well, that’s
Mankiller, the. dead ringer for old .Moon
Eye, who killed hisself to-day.” 1 began
to see rare possibilities in the coming
story. “Don’t go near that brute; he’s
wicked. Besides, that hole in his side
is rotlen and smells bad.”
I could see the ugly wound in Ihe moon
light. The pack saddle had started the
hole, and the heat maggot of the tropics
bad done the rest and made it incurable.
Often the Mankiller would turn his gaunt
head and bile at the wound, which loft
it in shreds. Broken Foot went on.
“Old Moon Eye was the shape of that
brute, only be was a gentleman. He had
a hole in his side like that. We haven't
packed him for <hrec* days. This morn
ing he was stiff and couldn’t follow. He
lost hisself from the herd about noon,
and 1 saw him way up on the top of a
cliff. He wa* a pet of mine, and I called
to him. His front feet were right on
the edge. He looked at me kind of sor
rowful, and then pushed hisself over.
He’s a-lavin’ out there now in one of
them canyons, ’bout ten miles from here.
An hour afterward we were .still stand
ing together watching the herd, Broken
Foot and T. He seemed to wont to say
something more, and so I waited. At
last it esme.
“Say. I’ve got an old mother back In
3t Louis. I send her something every
pay day, hut I hain’t heard from her
in six months. Will you find out about
her and write me when you get back.
Kid?—Broken Foot Bill Burdsell—Pack
I promised.and after that there wus no
sound in plaza save the crunching of the
mules at their forage and antoccosional
coquettish wqueal from the bellmare. And
the moon swung over the northeast and
hung low and waited for the dawn.
And the next morning I started to hyke
with the pack train, ard during the next
eight days I learned to be proud of my
strong new friends In Train Thirteen. And

The Patriotic League of Brooklyn atul

or Dr. Theodore B. Ttmby, the Inventor

A r solution was proposed l y Mrs. Tlt

Tracy to Instigate a movement to "cor

at |>eal to Congress to grant Dr. flmby
some "substantial recognition of his r. r
vlce In lime of need.” The resolution was
adopted by a unanimous vo e.

Monitor, and only In one book was Dr.
T Imhy’s m.nie given ~v, n incidentally.
Dr. Timby told of his lirst view of Cas
tle Williams, in New York harbor, which
suggested to him the idea of the revolving
turret, and of th, exhibition ttf his first
t x (tensive model In the (Sovernor’s room In
the City Hall in 184! to President John
Tyler and his suite. He told of the s>,tf,o
royalty which had been paid to him for
each of tin- three vessels, of which the
Monitor was one, on which the turret was
lirst used. He said that tie thought Eri.-n
--sou u.td tio Idea of taking any credit from
him, and that lie had been one of the
lirst men to propose a monument to the
"The glory of the work went to the man
who built the whole," said Gen. Tracy,
speaking informally, atfd the other was
forgotten, (if course-, live turret was not
the wolile tiling. The Monitor had other
features which were valuable. The lur
rel was Ihe only part of the ship which
afforded a mark lo the enemy. The low
freeboard—l4 Inches altove the water—ls
a great feature of a warship, although
that w-as 100 low. Our battleships now
are mm It lower titan those of Kurope. The
Monitor had a poor gun platform, ami was
a l>oor seagoing ship. There is no doubt
that Dr. Timby was Ihe real Inventor of
the turret, nisi the effort of the league to
make known his work Is most praise
In answer to a ouestion by John B. Pope
ns to why Dr. Timby had never presented
his claim as an Inventor in all these years,
"Yes, there is reason. It Is my make
up. I couldn't do It. 1 suppose I have
made more mistakes In my life than any
man of my age."
Dr. Timby hsd made much money with
different Invention**, but he spent It lit his
work until ho Is now a poor man. The
Patrlotl 1-eugue will take steps at its
next meeting to do something practical
with the resolution passed las evening.
