PREPARING FOR A FIELD DAY.
An Effort to Secure More Interest in
Preparations are being made for a
field day to be held some time In July
In which there will be contests in the
various branches of amateur sports.
The people of this city do not seem
to take hold of athletics as other places
do, which U greatly to be regretted, and
the Meld is to be held In order to get the
people Interested In the sport. To this
effort all persons who are Interested in
athletics are invited to attend a meeting;
to be held tomorrow evenig in the high
school building at seven o'clock sharp.
If a good showing Is made In this field
day, a contest will probably be held
with the Scranton T. M. C. A. In the

summer at that pretty place promises
to be more enjoyable than ever. The
cottages which have been erected this
year and many little conveniences
which add to the pleasure of an outing
all contribute to make the lake a place

will be made this year Is In the pro

The life of a woman ot the middle
class Is the most striking ot the many
difference between America und Japan,
lier advent In the world Is often her
alded several weeks In advance of the
event by a gaudy flag from the house
top. On the seventh day after birth
her head Is shaven and kept partly so
until she reaches the age of six. Dur
ing infancy she makes a pretty picture
with her little bald heed bobbing about
while strarped to the back of her Lilli
putian grandmother or elder sister al
ways some one too old or too young to
perform manual labor. Latfr, all out
doors Is her playgtound. and her rope
jumping, battle-door and shuttltcock
and romps In the parks develop an
undersized, but well-knit woman.
True to the Instincts of nature, the
girl is more modest than the boy. She
is Invariably polite and knows no such
thing as disobedience to her elders. A!- ;
though she may Inherit precocity from
bright parents, mental development is
denied her. Her education Is little else
than the essential parts of etiquette,
poetry, the various lessons of flowers
and rigid rules regarding obedience to
man. At fourteen she bursts forth a
full-bloomed cherry blossom, rosy
cheeked, velvety eyes with least
suspicion of oblicycrpicss tind bright as
day, yet dark ytf night.
Like al) ,Ver sisters she has an olive
compleclon and beautiful tapered fln-
- Igersj: While her face Is pleasant to look
rf upon It denotes little Intelligence. Her
forehead Is too broad and the cheek
bones too prominent to meet the re
quirements o?. the European Idea of
beauty. Her teeth are Invariably regu
lar and of pearly whiteness.
QUESTIONS OF COLOR.
Becoming accustomed to accepting
the topsy-turvy of things Japanese one
thinks nothing of blue, that in Western
aesthetics Is becoming only to blonues,
being the universal color for these
dainty brunettes. Her dress varies In
texture and design according to her
station In life. Those who can "afford
It wear a long flowing kimono of silk or
soft-toned crape, which falls in grace
ful folds to the feet, and is held In place
by a cord around the waist. Over the
cord and holding It is an enormous sash
or "obi," ten Inches wide and twelve
feet long, wound many times around the
waist, and tied in an enormous bow at
the back. It is of silk material, woven
with gold thread, and is the woman's
chief ornament. When covered by the
"haorl," or outer winter coat, the
"obi" Is the only defect In an otherwise
very becoming garment, for It Is apt to
give the wearer a hunch-backed ap
pearance. The trim little body of the Japanese
woman has not yet been subjected to the
steel stays of her supposedly more civ
ilized western sister. A thing of beauty
while sitting or kneeling, the Illusion
is dispelled when she walks. With sev
eral pounds of wood in her shoes and
her toes turned In, all possibility of a
graceful carriage Is precluded. Her
raven black tresses are every few days
subjected to a bath of rapeseed oil, and
with the assistance of Innumerable
pins, combs and wads are formed into
several waves and mounds. She sleeps
on a wooden pillow, "makora," on
which the neck alone rests, and as her
nerves are of Iron, the hair once dress
ed has a fresh appearance for several
days. The shaving of the cheeks, nose
and eyelids is but a part of the hair
LOVEMAKING AND MARRIAGE.
Mild flirtations are not one of the pas
times of the Japanese maid. She may
go to the theater, flower shows and fes
tivals, but the acquiescent chaperon of
America Is here superseded by a stern
father. Her acquaintances are only of
he own sex. She smokes tobacco as
generously as an American girl chews
gum, but her grace enables her to Inhale
from a long, slender pipe In a manner
that does not strike one as unfemlnlne.
While she Is aware that her ways are
not your ways, she cannot discriminate.
She sees no Impropriety In arranging
her toilet stripped to the waist before a
foreigner. When seen this way she
faces a western sta-e with modesty.
This may not seem an appropriate term
to the mind that makes the common
mistake of associating modesty more
with her raiment than with the thought
that prompts her expression. But In
this case It is..
Affection, position or love of money
are little considered in Japanese mar
riages. The fundamental principle of
marriage is a dreadful, deep-seated fear
of not having a family and allowing in
this way, the family name to become ex
tinct CemturleB of Buddhism have
made the perpetuation of the family
name of vital importance and a man's
first duty to his ancestors. No greater
misfortune can befall a couple than to
be childless, and to avert It marriages
are arranged early In life; proving bar
ren a divorce follows, another marriage
Is arranged and so on until the family Is
of such a size to avoid all possibility of
such a calamity. An old maid or bach
elor Is unknown In Japan. The girl has
no voice in the matter of selecting a
husband, an absurdity largely responsi
ble for the existence, of one divorce to
every three marriages.
All Is arranged by the middleman, or
"nakado," whose Importance cannot be
over-estimated. He Is not only consult
ed as to the adaptability of the young
people, but In turn Interviews all the
relatives of both as to their preference,
carries on the courting, officiates as
master of ceremonies at the wedding,
and finally acts as moderator In all
questions of dlscurd between husband
He Is the court cf Ural appeal In all
family matters; hai power to grant dt
vo?cc and arrange the settlement of

property and all details. He brings the
young people together for the first time
the girl submits to an inspection, a brief
conversation follows, and if she proves
satisfactory to her future absolute lord
and master all Is well. If not the man
simply leaves. With an ergagement
there Is an exchange of gifts of clothing,
On the weddlns day the girl covers
her face with a thick rice paint, rougvs
her l..s and diesses in a garment ot
whits the mourning color In order to
Signify her death to her father's family.
All lier belongings are sent to hi.r
mother-in-law, and after her departure
th? house und-vsoes a thorough clean
in, another indication that she is no
ln?cr ot the household.
Formerly tiie fath r'j i a tins glt w.-.a
a short sword, with Instructions to tiic
chlld-wlfe to use it on herself bhould
fhe tail to please her husband. The
marriage is held in the house of the
man's parents, and at Bunsvt the girl
la escorted by the "nakado" and charges
her white kimono for a colored one pro
vided by the lover.
The house Is tastefully decorated with
flowers. The Japanese well understand
the charm of simplicity. In all their
Moral arrangements the Individuality
of each plant Is retained. There arc no
monstrous bouquets of Inharmonious
colors. In fact, they were as a nation
far advanced In aesthetics when our
ancestors wore ur.tnnned skins and fed
on acorns. The lotus, the emblem of
purity, is freely used. The pine, em
blematic of a falthfr.l heart, and other
shrubs and flowers, each with Its own
slcnlflcance, are sparingly distributed.
In one corner of the room In which
the werltllntr occurs ore two wooden
figures dreppod a an old man and wo
iran, n rather otfd manner of wishing
the bride and groom a long life.
The marriage ceremony Is most sim
ple. Religion has nothing whaAeTCro
do with It, and the law JHUbe'more. It
partakes of tbe WddreVf an agreement
pflwr.ilwi -privileges, and demands no
rights. At present in her childish ways
she Is the picture of sweet submission.
Of her Chamberlain quotes the follow
ing comparison: "How sweet the Jap
anese woman Is. All the possibilities
of the race for good seem to be concen
trated In her. It shakes one's faith In
some occidental doctrines. If this be
the result of suppression and oppression
then these are not altogether bad. On
the other hand, how diamond hard the
character of the American woman be
comes under the Idolatry of which she
Is the object. In the eternal order of
things which Is the higher being, the
childish, confiding, sweet Japanese girl
or the superb, calculating, penetrating
occidental Circe of our more artificial
society, with her enormous power for
evil and her limited capacity for good?
Sweetness and gentle nature go far to
cast the lotus spell upon those who
journey to the shores of tho Dal Nip
pon." When you think about
