Another Interesting Letter from Mrs.
R. S. Brouse, Depicting Travel
in China.
Shanghai, China, Sept. 10.
One thing that has impressed more
of us probably than the sights of
these wonderful, old-time countries is
the large number of men and women
we have met everywhere who are
graduates of American colleges. A
Mrs. Fugui, who acted as interpreter
for us at a dinner given at the Shingi
club is a graduate of Smith College.
In our preliminary travels through
Japan we were elaborately entertain-
ed in every city we visited.
We left Keota just two hours be-
fore the congressional delegation ar-
rived and all of us were sorry we
missed them. Our trip took us
through Korea, which is evidently a
very interesting country. To us it look-
ed as if it were located on top of a vol-
cano. The feeling between the Koreans
and Japanese is still somewhat unset-
tled, and so far as we had occasion to
judge, not very friendly. We were
hurried through Korea owing to the
prevalence of cholera in that country,
and naturally we had no inclination to
stop. In fact many of the towns were
under quarantine.
China is undoubtedly a country of
magnificent distances. It was a twen-
ty-eight hour ride from Seoul to Muk-
den. The latter city is a strange mix-
ture of Chinese, Russians, Americans,
British, and most every other nation-
ality. The new part of the city is
very modern in every respect, with
fine, large, up-to-date buildings. A
number of us took a long rickshaw
ride through the old part of the city
and were very much surprised to run
across Bostock’s wild animal show on
exhibition there.
The train service in China is very
good. We had a better sleeping car
on our trip through this country than
any I have ever been in in the States.
The most of the locomotives in use on
the railroads in the Orient are Amer-
ican built. From Mukden we went to
Pekin, another long ride of more than
eight hundred miles. One glimpse of
that city and many of us decided that
we would like to stay there. Some of
us went on a trip to the Great Wall.
It took two days, going and returning,
and while there we climbed up three
thousand eight hundred feet to the
watch towers. While there we watch-
ed a camel train coming in from Mon-
golia, just as they have done for hun-
dreds and thousands of years. At
Nanku we stayed in a small hotel
which is surrounded by a high wall,
with soldiers on patrol all the time.
There is quite a large barracks at
Nanku, and quite a number of skir-
mishes have occurred there the past
few weeks.
After spending the night at Nanku
we left in the morning for the Ming
tombs. We were carried in sedan
chairs, four men to a chair. The dis-
tance is twenty miles, so you can im-
agine it was some trip. The tombs
were built by the Emperors and there
are thirteen of them. They are over
seven hundred years old, but that
seems modern to some temples we
have seen which date back to many
wears B. C.
We reached Shanghai yesterday and
received our first mail from home.
From Pekin to Shanghai is over one
thousand miles and we passed through
the provinces where the famine is
now raging. We saw beggars every-
where, and were literally stripped of
all our spare cash.
Just over the Yellow river the
countryside was flooded and we saw
hundreds of people working in the
water up to their knees trying to save
their rice. They had built high racks
on which they were piling it up to dry.
Last Saturday we went out to visit
the Emperor's summer palace and on
our way home were invited to a lunch-
eon at the home of Prof. and Mrs.
Malone. The professor is one of the
teachers in the Indemnity college
built by the United States. It is a
beautiful place and the buildings are
big and substantial. We could not
stay late as the city gates are closed
at 6:30 p. m.
i On Sunday we went to church at
! the Presbyterian mission, built since
i the Boxer uprising. The old mission
| was destroyed at that time and a
| number of the inmates killed. They
have a2 splendid boys’ school with
1200 pupils and one for girls with 200
in attendance. A good hospital is
also attached to the mission which is
surrounded by a high wall.
Cook’s representative has just been
here and informed us that there is
some doubt as to our getting to Ma-
nilla, as there has been a heavy ty-
phoon there which caused great dis-
aster, and it may not be wise to make
the trip. The missionaries have just
come to take us to a reception so will
have to close.
Altoona Citizen Killed in Airplane.
Earl H. Fluke, of Altoona, was in-
stantly killed in an airplane accident
near that city Monday afternoon,
when the machine in which he had
taken passage to Pittsburgh fell to
and was badly wrecked. During the
past several weeks two Curtis J N-4
planes have been in Altoona and vi-
cinity giving exhibition flights and
taking up passengers. Having filled
| all engagements they were scheduled
{to return to Pittsburgh on Monday.
Mr. Fluke arranged to accompany pi-
lot Elmer Schleifer as a passenger to
the Smoky city. The first plane to
leave had some difficulty attaining a
sufficient height to cross the moun-
tains owing to a high wind. Pilot
Schleifer delayed his departure until
3:45 o'clock when the wind had fallen
somewhat. When he finally did take
off he got up only 150 feet when his
ed to turn to the left in order to vol-
plane to the ground but just at that
moment a hard puff of wind caught
the plane under the right wing and
the pilot tried valiantly to right it the
distance to the ground was so short
that he failed in his efforts and the
plane nosed to earth in a field on the
Dr. W. Frank Beck farm. Fluke was
strapped in front of the pilot in the
ground his strap broke and he was
hurled forward, his neck, jaw, nose
and both arms being broken and one
side crushed. Pilot Schleifer was not
seriously injured and was able to
crawl out of the cockpit and not only
pull Fluke from the wrecked machine
but dragged him two hundred yards
to the road from where a passing au-
tomobile took him to the Altoona hos-
pital but life was extinct. Fluke was
27 years old, a veteran of the world
railroad company.
Answers to Health Questions.
Question 1—How may persons be
protected against smallpox?
Answer—By vaccination.
Question 2—What evidence of vac-
cination of children must teachers
Answer—A certificate signed by a
Question 3—Upon what authority
may a child be excused from vaccina-
Answer—Upon presentation of a
certificate, signed by the county med-
ical director or some one deputized by
him, (in municipalities by the medical
representative of the health authori-
ty) setting forth the fact that the
child is physically unfitted for vacci-
nation. Such certificate is good for
one year.

“Sneezes.” Coughing and sneezing,
especially in street cars, motion pic-
ture houses and at public gatherings
are often the cause of the spread of
About four o'clock Wednesday
afternoon E. W. Roberts, of Tunkhan-
nock, a traveling salesman, was mo-
toring along the state highway about
one mile east of Penn Hall. At that
point George Rhoads & Sons are
building a new concrete bridge. It is
located at the bottom of a short hill
and Roberts approaching at a good
speed did not notice the danger sig-
nals until he was dangerously near the
open bridge. His brakes refused to
hold and when it seemed that he
would dash into the stream he turned
the car suddenly striking a telephone
pole with a crash that wrecked the
steering gear and front axle. The car,
a small Jackson runabout, turned
clear over, pinning the driver under it.
The Rhoads men ran to the rescue
at once. When they had lifted the car
off Roberts he was lying in the road,
but gathered himself together in an
instant and jumped up apparently
without any injury whatever.
Unhurt After Auto Turned
Poultry Culling.
During the week of September 21-
24th the Centre county Farm Bureau
conducted nineteen poultry culling
demonstrations, widely distributed so
as to cover the more important poul-
try producing sections of the county.
Two hundred and forty-three persons
attended these demonstrations. Eight
flocks, a total of 996 hens, were culled.
492 of these were thrown out as poor
producers and not laying at present.
Records were kept of these flocks one
week before and one week after cull-
ing. Reports have been received from
four flocks. The 235 poor hens taken
from these four flocks laid a total of
three eggs during the week after cull-
ing. This goes to show that the
methods used in culling are practical;
and they are simple enough that any
person with a little practice, such as is
given at one of these demonstrations,
can cull poultry very satisfactorily.

(P.O. S. of A. Initiations at Centre

The Patriotic Order Sons of Amer-

degree team from Lemont camp, thir-
ty-four strong, and led by degree
master James Schreck, conferred the
degree upon a class of nineteen new
members in the Centre Hall camp.
The officiating visitors did very effi-

size of Lemont the camp there has
surely put that town on the map. And
i it might here be mentioned that the
Centre Hall camp can also lay claim
to being among the real live ones. In
addition to the class of nineteen new
members initiated last Thursday
evening six more have been elected to
membership, making a total roll of
over 130 members.
