A WOMAN’S VIEWS OF
TRAVEL IN CHINA.
Another Interesting Letter from
Mrs. W. R. North.
Dear Mother and All:
When I wrote to Berenice more
than three weeks ago I fully intended
to get a letter off to you the following
week. Where the time has gone to I
don’t know. I planned when I came
to the mountains to get caught up
with my correspondence, but our va-
cation is almost half gone and I have
not accomplished anything in the way
of letter writing. If only there were
not so many other things to take one’s
attention. There are thirteen fami-
lies or more of foreigners here now
crowded into three temples and we!
have a great many interruptions. Ev-
en our mornings, when we plan to
spend all of our time studying Chi-
‘nese, are so broken into that we feel
we have accomplished nothing. But
I guess we are making some progress.
I am working hard every day on the
first five hundred characters. We are
supposed to be able to write them so
as to be examined in them soon after
we return to school in the fall. It’s
no easy task, I assure you. Sometimes
I feel as though it’s almost a hopeless
task, but, surely some day I'll be able
to write the crazy things.
Daddy, the next time you read the
first ten chapters of the Gospel of
John (Yohan Fuyin) think of Bill and
me reading them in Chinese. It’s the
worst thing in the way of Language
Study that I've tried to tackle yet,
But it, like the five hundred charac-
ters, I also hope to get some day and
I certainly hope I'll be able to retain
it so that I can read it for you when
I come home. I've heard of some
folks being asked to repeat the Lord’s.
Prayer in Chinese when they’ve been
home on furlough, and being embar-
rassed to death because they couldn’t
do it I do hope my Chinese will stay
with me while I'm on furlough. T’'m |
getting now so that I think more!
quickly in Chinese than in English and
am often at loss for an English word
when I can instantly think of a Chi-
nese character to express my mean-
Today the ‘June 6th copy of the
“Watchman” reached me, I was sorry
to see the notice of Dr. Wilcox’s
death. It makes us realize how many
changes will have taken place by the
time we return home. We have not
yet been gone a year and already
many of our friends and acquain-
tances have died . And weve had
announcements of three weddings
since we reached Kwanhsien.
Your letter of May 25th reached me
about three weeks ago. I hope by
this time you are having some warm
weather to make up for the cool
spring. How I wish you could all be
here with us on the mountains. The
weather certainly is delightful. Here !
it is almost the last of July and we
don’t know what it is to be really
warm, unless we take a trip down to |
Kwanhsien City or climb the fours]
tains, and then it is the exercise which
makes you warm. I'm sitting on our
verandah now and there is the loveiest |
breeze blowing. In fact this morning '
when I was sitting here studying I°
had to put on my sweater.
Two weeks ago to-day, Miss Hutch-
insen, an English lady, Bill, and I
took a trip to a temple located on the
“Green City Mountain” (Chin Cheu |
San) a distance of about sixty li, or'
20 miles from here. We walked the
whole way and I tell you I was pretty
tired when we climbed the last flight
of steps up into the temple. The
scenery on the mountain was beauti-
ful, though, and the temple itself very
attractive. We stayed there Thursday
and Friday and made the return trip
on Saturday. The accommodations for |
foreigners there are not very good,
however. There are so many natives ;
there worshiping, and we had our
rooms right close to their quarters.
The first night it was so noisy we
could get very little sleep. The Chi-
nese never seem to go to bed, for at
least, that’s the way it sems to us.
Bill has written quite a long descrip-
tion of our trip to Chin Cheu San, so
I won’t go into detail. When we left
there Saturday morning for the re-
turn trip, it was raining. But I was
anxious to get back home and so we
started out in the rain. It was rather
slippery coming down the mountain
roads, but when we reached the plain
it was raining very little and walking
was fine. Because I became so tired
on the trip over, Bill sent for his wha-
gau(a seat swing between two poles
and carried by two men) to meet me
and carry me part way home. It
met me about ten li out of Kwanhsieu
and I was grateful for a lift, though I i
was getting along pretty well. The
poles weren't strong enough for my
hundred and fifty pounds, though for
just about three li out from Kwan-
hsieu one pole broke and I almost
went down into the ditch. We had to
stop in Kwanhsieu and buy new poles,
which took over an hour and I was
anxious to get home early. But you
just can’t hurry the Chinese. Part ot
the time when we were waiting for
the pole to be changed, I sat in a little
shop beside a woman who was hold-
ing a baby that was just covered with
what looked like boils. I asked the
woman what “bin” (sickness) the
child had, and she replied “do do”,
Well, I didn’t know any more than I
did before. But afterwards I asked
Miss Hutchinson about it she said it
was small-pox. I had never heard
small-pox called by that term. The
only term I knew for it was “tieu”
wha’ which means “heavenly flower.”
Well, I'm expecting to develop small-
pox any day, now, but I hope I won’t.
Changing chair poles out here is like
changing tires on an automobile at
home. But chair poles are a little
cheaper. My new poles on my wha
gau cost 1,800 cash or about 25c¢ gold.
When we reached our rooms lrere
at the temple Saturday evening, just
as it was getting dark, I felt as if I
was getting back home. As inconven-
ient as things are here, They were
much more so at Chin Cheu San, and
they also had more fleas over there.
Tomorrow, Mr. and Mrs. Starrett,
Bill and I plan to start on another
trip to visit Dr. Stubbs, an English-
man, at his bungalow about forty li
from here. Where he is located there
is a fine swimming and also good
fishing and Bill expects to have his
first opportunity to catch Chinese fish.
His tackle is very crude and I doubt
if he’ll be able to catch anything. This
trip we also expect to make on
Shanks mares, but we'll take the wha
gan along to be on the safe side. If
it rains, of course, we won’t be able
to go. Nobody here ever starts out
on a pleasure trip in the rain, for it’s
no fun at all taking a trip in the rain
in China. You only go in the rain
when you have to.
Yesterday and last night we had the
hardest rains we've had since we came
to the mountains. Just now the sun
is shining, but it doesn’t look as if it
were going to stay with us very long.
To-day the cook has been busy get-
ting food ready for our trip. He has
canned five pints of lovely red plumbs
and is now making apple sauce. We
are getting apples now, but they're
just about the size of our crabapples |
at home and are not good eating raw.
We either stew them or make sauce
of them. I want to can enough sauce
so that we’ll have it next winter.
I don’t know whether I mentioned
in my letter to Anna or Berenice that
just before we came to the mountains
we unpacked a big box of foreign
stores that came from Shanghai.
certainly was lots of fun and unless
they’re stolen while we’re up here,
we'll have good “eats” next winter.
Among them are such things as sauer
kraut, dill pickles, cheese, shrimp,
oysters, chipped beef, all kinds of
fruit, olives, etc. some of which I
never expected to see out here in
China. We're eating a small box of
kraft cheese now, and I tell you we
make it last a long time. In our
order was also two dozen lemons, and
out of the two dozen, only two were
spoiled. I brought ten of them up to
the mountains with me and still have
two of them left. The times when
iwe have lemonade are few and far
between, but oh! It does taste good.
Yes, we have heard of the death of
the Chinese delegate to the General
Conference. He was a teacher in our
Boys’ High School at Chung King
(where we will be) and Mr. Rape had
planned for him to study in America
before he returned to China. He has
a wife and two sons in Chung King.
He was rather a despondent sort of
| person and was not very well while he
was in the States. He had decided to
return to China as soon as General
Conference was over, and not stay
to study. He worried a great deal
about the conditions in the States (a
supposedly Christian country) didn’t
cheer him up much. It certainly is too
bad. At first, we felt that it couldn’
be true. Bill met him when we stop-
ped over in Chung King.
Well, I must close. My hand is ter-
ribly cramped, and I have much to do
to get ready for our trip to-morrow.
In spite of two servants to help, there
is always plenty for me to do my-

Changes Proposed in Fishing Laws.
A new code of fishing laws, making
numerous changes in the existing
laws, was introduced in the Legisla-

NOLL.—The very sudden death of
Boyd A. Noll,at his home at Zion,early
last Friday morning, was a distinct
shock to his many friends, not only at
that place but in Bellefonte and else-
where. He had been in Bellefonte the
day previous and spent the most of
Friday in his store. After closing
that evening he went home and was
apparently in as good health as ever.
When he retired for the night he
had no premonition of illness but
about one o’clock in the morning he
roused up and complained of a pain
in the side of his face. While rubbing
his face he experienced a similar feel-
inging in one arm. He started to
rub the arm and almost immediately
his breathing became labored and
irregular and the end came within a

age of 53 years and one month. His
schooling was received at Pleasant
Gap and when but twenty-one years
of age he went to Zion and embarked
in the mercantile business in. a
small way. In the thirty-two years
he had been there he built up one of
the best country stores in Centre
county and was universally esteemed
for his honest, fair dealing with ali
his patrons. He was a member of
the Reformed church at Zion and one
of its most liberal supporters. He
belonged to the Hublersburg lodge of
Odd Fellows and was a stockholder
in both the First National bank of

PENN STATE ASKS $4,323,220
. Bill Presented to Legislature Monday
Night to Provide Funds for Two
An appropriation of $4,323,220 for
the Pennsylvania State College was
asked in a bill presented in the House
at Harrisburg Monday night. Of this
total, $3,360,932 is requested for gen-
eral maintenance. $355,746 for agri-
cultural research and $606,542 for
agricultural extension, which includes
the county farm agent service.
| In commenting on the requests Dr.
John M. Thomas, president of the coi-
lege, declared that the amount is “a
conservative statement of the needs
of the college for the biennium 1925-
27 which properly should be met by
State appropriation.” It is the least
that the college can fairly ask for and
continue its standard of service, ac-
cording to college officials.
The last legislative - appropriation
totaled $2,168,600, and it failed to
relieve conditions that showed the
college to be underfinanced. As a
result, it was found necessary to in-
crease student fees in order to pre-
vent a serious curtailment of the
services of the institution, President
Thomas states in his report on the
legislative budget, which has received
the approval of the college Board of
“Jt is an honest budget and con-
tains no bit of extravagance,” de-
clares Dr. Thomas. “The faculty
salary scale, an excessive teaching
load, a costly rate of depreciation in
the physical plant of the college and
additional equipment for up-to-date
instruction compose the most im-
portant items for immediate remedy.
The college has exhausted the pos-
sibilities of income from its own re-
sources. Student fees already are too
high for a State institution. Increases
already made have worked serious
hardship upon the very class of
students the college was created to

ture with unanimous vete but must be

can go before the people of the State
for a vote as to whether the consti-
tution shall be amended so as to au-
thorize it. -
