Everything goes to show that the up
rt-mg In China had Its origin In the
strong fe. ling of dislike on the pari of
the natlvea against the Christian*, not
on aiicunt of the religion of the latter,
hut because the Chinese havy been un
able to differentiate b- tween the |>er*ons
professing and teaching Christianity, and
the non profm-ing subjects of the Chris
tian government*. To the Chinese mind
all white men are Christians, whether
thy are hard-driving nnd Irrillgtous rad
ioed contractors or traders, or mlsslon
arlis It 1* neither the fault of nor any
reflection upon the missionaries that this
feeling of animosity should exist among
the Chine*-. While the good men of the
- lolh hav- labor.<i long and earnestly to
establish a foothold for the true religion
among the yellow p ople, there have been
many other nominal Christian*, that ls
men brought up In Christian countries,
who s traders, contra* lor*, etc . have
used the Chinese shamefully; and. unfor
tunately, harsh nnd unjust treatment
makes a more lasting Impression than
tenderness and honesty.
In a recent gpterh laird Salisbury said
that It was not to Christianity as a re
ligion. but to Christians o- suspected po

Chine*, ol.j.cted All of the encroach

been by Christian Power*. Every treaty

usage* of the Chinese lias been obtain, and
by a Christian Power. It Is not surpris
ing. Iber-fore, that the naturally suspi
cious Chinese should look upon the for-
Igner*. or "Christians." with uneasiness,
and fear for the perpetuity of their Insti
tutions If not their nation Itself
The treaty stipulations between China
and the Christian Fowi r# provide not only
for the safety of missionaries, but also
for the safety of native converts. This
provision has twin the cause of a great
deal of trouble The native convert* to
Christianity are not wholly without guile

Kuropean contractors constructing rail

The blame for all this sort of thing has

—The system of colored signal glasses
used on the New York. New Haven and
Hartford Railroad his already passed the
experimental stage and Is pronounced a
complete success. For the signal lumps
red glass Is used for danger, green for
safety, and yellow for caution. The
lenses of a given color nre carefully test
ed and uniformity Is demanded lieforv
they are put In service. The engineers
can thus calculate the distance* to the
lights readily, a# In the same atmosphere
the signals show alike and can be seen
from one to three miles The change
from white to a green for the safety sig
nal was adopted on account of the fre
quency with which new white lights
were placed along the lines of ihe rail
way. serving to perplex the engineers
The change to a uniform glass Is also
much appreciated by the engineers, a
with the glass formerly used with vary

was aot possible to estimate distances.

—One of the triumphs of modern tech
nical chemistry has been the production
of artificial indigo Since July, 1)197. the
Radish aniline and soda factory at l.utl
wlgshafrn has produced n dye stuff from
naphthulln and other product* of coal tar
which, from u chemical standpoint ns
well a* In Its dyeing properties, ts abso
lutely Identical with the Indigottn and In
digo blue of the natural vegetable. The
theory of the artificial production of In
digo was llrst announced between I*7o
and ishn. hut the application of methods
to practical uses required some twenty
years of constant research. The present
artificial Indigo commerce I* said to rep
resent almost pure Indlgotln. and I* sold
In the form of a97 per cent, powder In
the cose of the vegetable Indigo the
amount of tndlgoMn fluctuates between 70
and 90 per cent. The artificial Indigo
contains no Indigo red. no Indigo brown,
ami no Indigo glue: the lack of theee
substances being It* special disadvantage,
a* the Indigo red and the Indigo glue seem
to have some connection with the fiber
of Ihe fabric to he dyed. The Indigo
red Is useful In the production of the
darker shades With lower prices for
the artificial product which It used hy
dyer* In the same way a* the vegetable
Indigo. It seems extremely likely that
the cultivation of the latter, now ex
tensively carried on In the Eaat ladles,
will be rendered uafiroQublc.
The liability to disease is preatly
lessened when the blood is in tfOod con

vigorous. For then all refuse matter

otherwise it would rapidly accumulate
