THE CHINESE NEW YEAR.
War, Queer Customs and Strange
Sights as Seen by Mr. and
Chengtu, China, February 12.
Dear Home Folks:
This is an exciting season of the
year in China. The Chinese New
Year comes on February 5th this
year, and already the streets are
showing signs of the occasion. That
day is more like our Christmas than
any other. It is the day when the par-
ents give gifts to their children and
friends call on each other. It is also
the day for settling of debts. The
streets are just full of toy venders,
and some of them (the toys) certain-
ly are cute. The kiddies stand and
admire them just as the kiddies at
home look in at the shop windows.
The New Year celebrations generally
last about a month. We are to have a
week’s vacation from Language school
at that time, and I certainly have
planned to do a lot of things during
that week. :
Bill is away just now. He and Earl
Cranston left last Monday on a trip
to Suining, a four and a half day’s
journey from here. If all goes well
they will be back next Friday. They
are going into territory where there
is supposed to be fighting just now, so
they may have some difficulty getting
through. I did not know before they
left that there was any fighting at all
along the road they were to take.
Bill kept that from me. I suppose he
knew I would have objected strenu-
ously. It was rather foolish of them
to go just now but they had planned
the trip several weeks ago and didn’t
want to break their plans. I have had
two letters from Bill, the second one
written on the second day out, and
they had not run into any fighting
then. Two days have gone by now
without any word and I am just a lit-
tle bit worried. There are rumors
that Chengtu will change hands,
speaking in military terms, before
very long. There is a great deal of
lafooing being done these days, by the
soldiers. It is a horrible custom, but
nevertheless a custom in China. When
the soldiers want men to carry things
for them they just take men on the
streets or even from their homes, and
the men dare not resist, for the sol-
diers are likely to shoot them. Last
week one day on our road to school
we passed thirty-six men being pulled
along the street by soldiers, their
hands bound with ropes. On Friday
morning the gates of the city were
closed and we were unable to go to
school. Some people said they were
closed because it was feared troops
were coming up from down country
to storm the city; others said that the
gates were closed on account of the
lafooing. Many coolies were leaving
the city and hiding because they did
not want to be taken by the soldiers.
To prevent such a procedure, the sol-
diers locked the gates. They were
opened later in the day and were open
yesterday and today. We are a little
bit afraid to go to Language school
tomorrow for fear we get locked out.
It wouldn’t be much fun to have to
spend a week in the country with just
the clothes we wore to school. Some
of the girls were caught that way last
year and had to spend ten days in the
country without a change of clothing.
Monday Evening, Feb. 25, 1924.
Well, here it is again, three weeks
since I started this letter and the let-
ter not finished yet. Many thing:
have happened in the meantime. Bill
got back from Suining safely and just
in time. The day after he returned
the city was closed and we had a week
of fighting. It was the week of Chi-
nese New Year and also our vacation
week. There were no Chinese New
Year celebrations and we were unable
to spend our vacation as we had plan-
ned. Although the fighting was not
severe and we were not directly in the
line of firing, yet there was just
enough uncertainty and nervous strain
about the whole business to keep us
from enjoying our vacation very
much. We were so sorry that the’
Chinese could not celebrate in proper
style, for they have some very inter-
esting customs and we were anxious
to see some of them. On New Year's
day itself, which fell on February 5th,
according to our calendar, all of the
children and many of the grown folks
came out in new clothes. The faces
of the children, especially the little
girls, were rouged and powdered in a
fashion similar to many you see at
home (on the older girls at home,
however). Bill has written a letter
telling of some of the customs. I will
send you a copy of it in this letter,
and also a picture of a door God.
Every year at New Year time the
Chinese paste a new God on the door
at the entrance to their home. This
God is supposed to scare away the
evil spirits. He is homely enough to
scare away almost anybody or any-
Sunday afternoon, March 2, 1924.
It seems I shall never get this letter
finished. But I am going to bring it
to an abrupt close soon, and get it off.
I don’t want you to be worrying about
me because you don’t receive a let-
ter from me for a long time.
In your last letter, which was writ-
ten January 8rd, and which I just re-
ceived this past week, you mention
the fact that you were worried over
some news you had seen in the North
American. Please do not worry about
us, mother. Where you see these re-
ports in the papers, just remember
that they are written to appear much
worse than conditions really are over
here, in most cases. We are every bit
as safe here as we would be back in
the States, and we’re happy as can be.
Of course, we miss seeing all you
home folks but we decided before we
left home that we would have to fore-
go that pleasure so are making the
best of it.
The past week, on Friday, we re-
ceived our first parcel from the States
and it came through in fine condition.
Bill’s mother and father didn’t give us
our Christmas presents before we left
home, so they sent them to us. I got
a lovely embroidered night-gown, one
of Van Dyke’s books, and four beau-
tiful handkerchiefs. Bill received
two B. V. D's, a book, “The Goose
Step,” a handkerchief and a year’s
subscription to the “Bookman.” There
was no duty on the books but we had
$1.28 Mex. duty on the other things.
We didn’t mind the duty because it
wasn’t much and we were so glad to
get the things.
By the way, you never told us
whether you had to pay duty on the
Christmas package we sent. I hope
you didn’t have to pay duty for the
things were not worth it. Bill’s moth-
er wrote that they had to pay duty on
the pearls. That is ridiculous, for
those pearls cost us only $1.50 yen or
.75°gold. a string. - We couldn’t afford
to pay more.
I'm going to quit right now, for I
do want this letter to get started on
its way. Hereafter I'm going to try
dreadfully hard to get a letter off
Bill and I are both well and still
plugging away at the Language. It
certainly is some language, but we're
getting there. I know the Lord’s
Prayer now. We have to be able to
say it in chapel tomorrow morning.

Superintendents to Spend Week at
The difficulties surrounding the op-
eration of city and country schools
from the standpoint of superintendent
of schools, will be threshed out by the
superintendents themselves, with the
aid of State Department of Public In-
struction officials, at the annual con-
ference of superintendents to be held
at The Pennsylvania State College
during the week of August 11th, the
last week of the summer session at
Superintendents and their assistants
in all parts of the State have been in-
vited by college officials to take part
in the conference. Similar meetings
in past years have been regarded as
very successful, since county school
heads have been able to get any and
all information regarding the proper
management of their affairs accord
ing to new State laws. ‘
Paint Fire Hydrants Yellow, Experts
Yellow is the best color for fire hy-
That is the advice given by water
company experts to city officials after
a study of conditions in various sec-
tions of Pennsylvania, says the Penn-
sylvania Public Service Information
Yellow has a high visibility by nat-
ural light and possesses almost a
maximum of visibility when artificial
light is at a minimum. Also, it can be
kept clean and free from marring, ad-
vantages not enjoyed by white,
The best yellows are: First, cad-
mium yellow or sulphide of cadmium,
and second, chrome yellow or chro-
mate of lead. The first is the more
expensive, but worth it, the water
supply men believe.

lison, widow of the late Dr. J. R. G.
Allison, of Millheim, died at eleven
o’clock on Saturday night at the home
of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. James
M. Runkle, at the Centre Hall hotel.
Her husband died on March 21st of
this year and at the time she had not
fully recovered from an =zttack of the
grip. The shock of Mr. Allison’s
death resulted in a physical break-
down and two weeks later she went
to the home of her son, Gross Allison,
at New Castle, Ky., in the hope that
the change would prove beneficial but
just the reverse happened and a month
later she was brought north and taken
to the home of her parents at Centre
Hall where she remained until her
Her maiden name was Anna Cathe-
rine Runkle, a daughter of James M.
and Rosetta Breon Runkle, and she

1868, hence was 56 years, 1 month and
28 days old. She married Dr. R. J. G.
Allison and for a number of years
they resided in Centre Hall. In 1916
they moved to Millheim where her
husband embarked in the hotel busi-
ness but retired several years ago.
He passed away four months ago but
surviving her are one son, Gross Alli-
son, a civil engineer of New Castle,
Ky., her parents and one sister, Miss
Laura Runkle, of Centre Hall.
She was a member of the Lutheran
church and Rev. Drumm had charge
of the funeral services which were

Hall, at 2:30 o'clock on Wednesday
afternoon, after which burial was
made in the Centre Hall cemetery.

Big Barn Burned Near Mt. Eagle.
During Wednesday afternoon’s
storm lightning struck the large barn
on the farm of Mrs. Molly Leathers,
near Mt. Eagle, with the result that it
was burned to the ground with all its
contents, including one horse, a cow
and a calf. A portion of this year’s
hay crop was in the barn but none of
the wheat. Mrs. Leathers kept all her
smoked meat in the granary and it,
too, was burned. The property was
partially insured but not sufficiently
to cover the loss.
