IN CHINA LAND.
Dr. W. R. North Has Exciting Exper-
ience on Way to the Hills.
Szechman, China, July 8.
Dear Home Folks:
On Friday morning, July 3rd, I left
home to go up on the Hills. We were
planning to have a good time on the
Fourth and to celebrate our anniver-
sary in some little way. When I
crossed the river the kids in swim-
ming all hooted me, but although I
thought it a little strange that they
should say so much, I didn’t pay much
attention to them, for we are used to
being hooted by the kids on the
streets. As the boat started across
the river a Chinese in soldier's uni-
form eyed me rather keenly and asked
me where I lived, etc. He also asked
me something about Lung Men Hao—
“Dragon Gate Firm,” a place across
the river. I didn’t know what he
meant, and so said I didn’t know.
Waen I reached the other side of the
river, a carrier asked me, “What is
your honorable country?” I paid no
attention to him. He shouted it after
me again. I replied, “America.” He
shouted back, “Din Hao,” which means
“tip tor.” When I reached McCur-
dy’s bungalow, I found out what all
these things meant.
Ever since the Shanghai riots the
British have been in disfavor here, as
elsewhere. No distinction is made
between the home-land and the do-
minions—all are “Yin gwei,” which
means England. Students have been
lecturing on the streets about the
Shanghai trouble, and have taken op-
portunity to express themselves un-
equivocally about the English. Final-
ly things became so hot that the Eng-
lish vice consul ordered the British to
the Hills, thinking they would be
safer there. But the students were
not to be silenced so easily, nor foiled
in their attempts at revenge. They
followed the British to the Hills and
finally succeeded in forcing their
servants to strike.
Following this a mob gathered one
day at the godown—that is, store-
house—of Mackenzie & Co., a British
firm. Finally the sailors from the
British gunboat were called for. They
took a position guarding the godown,
and attempted to force the crowd
back. In this procedure a Chinese—
some say three Chinese—was wound-
ed with a bayonet rather badly. So
far as I know he is still living. But
of course this aroused the Chinese,
especially the students, still more.
Matters took so serious an aspect that
the British vice consul ordered all
British down to the river. As they
had no servants, they had to go, tak-
ing only what they could carry. I got
up on the hills just after they had
gone down. Hence my curious exper-
One American and one Britisher in
the postoffice, who was not molested,
sent their chairs to help the sick or
infirm down. Two or three horses
were collected for people to ride. They
put what they could in pillow cases
and sheets and descended the hill.
One Canadian woman, whose husband
has recently died, had to take down a
: baby who was just alive. Mrs. Swann,
another Canadian, had to go down
with a ten day’s old baby. Mr. Mor-
rison, a Canadian, is just out of a
sick bed. Some of them were able to
take little more than the clothes they
I went around with McCurdy to
lock up and nail up the houses, but
the thieves were already at work. As
fast as we could nail up a place they
came along and broke it open. It was
a heartless task. We carried as much
as possible to our homes to save it,
but we, of course, didn’t get a tithe
of what was in the houses. The peo-
ple who suffered most were those who
live all the time in the Hills. Among
them was Betty Heller Peake, al-
though the last report I had was that
her home had not been badly looted.
I presume, however, it has by this
time suffered with the rest. I caught
two fellows in one house—one inside
getting the loot, the other outside re-
ceiving it. Both wore the military
uniform—members of the militia
“guarding” the property of the Iur-
eigners. They were armed, but of-
fered no resistance. They offered to
let me search them. Here is what I
found: Three silver teaspoons, the
top to a cheap porcelain sugar bowl,
a. meat grinder, a Chinese tea bowl,
an old strainer, a pair of suspenders.
And they had left behind in the house
a typewriter, a phonograph, a set of
valuable surgical instruments, enor-
mous quantities, exaggeratingly
speaking, of foodstuffs, ete. They
have little idea of comparative values.
Thay pick out the things that they
personally can make use of.
I found soldiers in two other houses.
They had, of course, gone there to see
that everything was all right, and
had found thieves at work. They
were just through driving the thieves
out! It is generally believed that
these so-called militia are in league
with General Nuan Dsi Min, the big-
gest crook in the military game here
in Szechwan. He is himself a native
of Kweichow. The hope of the situ-
ation lies in General Wang Fang
Dseo, the man in charge of the polic-
ing of Chungking. He has taken a
decided stand, saying that he will per-
mit nothing that is likely to lead to
further disturbances. He forbids stu-
dents to lecture on the streets, or to
incite to disturbance. It is reported
that he has already arrested and beat-
en some students. Whether this will
cool off their ardor, or will lead to
further trouble remains to be seen.
Here at Dsen Jia Ngai the situation
seems quiet enough. Sarah is in the
best place she could be, the Peat bun-
galow on the hills. It is a sequester-
ed place. No other foreigners are
near. The Peats are the oldest and
most experienced members of our
mission here. a
You see we are living in exciting
scenes; but the only danger is to our
things. Even they are in no immedi-
ate danger. No one has made any ef-
fort to assault a foreigner with intent
to kill. So you need not fear for our
safety. As for “things,” they are not
co important after all. Most of my
Chinese friends are very optimistic as
to the future. They think the Amer-
icans will have no trouble. ;
Don’t worry, We are all right. I
"have written” the facts, because no
doubt they have been exaggerated in
the home papers. We have enough
things packed so that we can get
away in a hurry without leaving be-
hind necessaries. You see our house
is on the river bank. All we would
have to do is to throw our trunk over
the cL.ff into a boat, run down the hill
to the boat, and float down the river
to the gunboat. .
Probably by the time you get this
letter we shall be living as calm and
peaceful an existence as ever. I have
several things to do this afternoon
before I go up to the Hills for the
Yours as ever,
W. R. NORTH.
——On Sunday afternoon William
F. Shope, of South Allegheny street,
saturated the interior of an old chick-
en house on his premises with gaso-
line, then applied a match as a sure
means of getting rid of the thousands
of vermin infesting the premises. But
he failed to notify the fire companies
and an alarm brought out the entire
fire department. The services of the
firemen, however, were not needed,
but an unfortunate incident in connec-
tion with the quick response of the
firemen was the injury of Ellis Hines.
He jumped on the left running board
of the pumper to ride to the fire and
the driver got too close to the traffic
signal at the intersection of Alleghe-
ny and Bishop streets, with the result
that Mr. Hines jumped or was thrown
from the pumper onto the hard brick
pavement. His left ear was cut, left
knee cut and bruised and left shoul-
der badly wrenched. Fortunately no
bones were broken but he has been
pretty badly crippled this week.

opened offices in New York city and
already has four hundred stores for
which he buys. He is president and
general manager of the corporation.
On Tuesday he and his brother Nick
left for Chicago, where they will open
an office and expect to enlist at least
a thousand stores in that territory.
They have copywrighted the trade
mark “Amreco” and all the confec-

in that way. The plan is for confec-

Centre county Sunday school work-

there were just eight officially regis-

well as a few in attendance who did
not register. The committees having
in charge the preparation of the pro-
gram and arranging for the entertain-

well along with their work, and give
assurance that the meeting will be one
of the best held in years. Fifty year

driver from California, won the Au-

speedway on Monday by driving the
250 miles in 2 hours, 6 minutes and
54 seconds without a single stop, but
what was of much greater interest to
the young driver was the $9,000 purse
that went with the victory.
Many Bellefonte and Centre county
people motored to Altoona for the big
race and while there were many thrills
and the usual excitement, there were
no accidents of any kind, the first
time in the history of the big bowl
that no one was killed or injured.
Harry Martz came in second in the
race and wor the $5,500 prize while
Earl Cooper got $3,000 for coming in
third. Fred Comer finished fourth,
