NE of those typewritten letters that
bear the warning caution, “Dictated but not read by Mr. — ," was recently received by the head of a large manu. facturing concern, says the New York "Times." It was sent back by him with the words written across it in a large, clear hand, “Received but not read by Mr. - " "Think of asking a man a favor and then letting a stenographer sign your name to it while you are out playing golf," was the manufacturer's comment.
A high light in an otherwise very somber picture is this from Pueblo, published in a despatch to a daily paper:
Doris Seaber walked into one of the morgues to-day and declared that she was very much alive. As she gazed at the body which was identified as herself, she said: "That is not me."
A request in this column for the miss. ing lines in a partly obliterated epitaph has brought many answers. The following comes from a Newark (N. Y.) subscriber, with the statement that it is found on a gravestone in an old Dutch cemetery on a farm in Wayne County:
Sarah Van Benschooten is my name
Prepare for death and follow me The epitaph, so far as the last four lines are concerned, is a common one in New England graveyards dating around 1750 to 1850, another subscriber informs us.

Many of our correspondents also quote the rhyme which was added by some wag to the epitaph quoted above:
To follow you I'm not content
This somewhat homely epitaph, one of our correspondents writes, is without much poetical merit, and he quotes another, by Carew, the English poet, as more worthy of immortality. It is inscribed on the tomb of "The Lady Mary Wentworth," and reads: Loe here the precious dust is layd Whose purely tempered clay was made So fine that it the guest betrayed Else the soul grew so fast within It broke the outward shell of sinne And so was hatch'd a cherubim

Referring to an inquiry in this col. umn as to the meaning of the familiar initials “B. V. D.," a friend writes:
For several years prior to 1890 there was on Whit Street, New York, a firm of manufacturers known as Bradley, Voorhees & Day. One of their productions was the kind of men's abbreviated underwear which is still

The Red Mask
Contents of August ASIA
At first glimpse it looked like a man in a red mask and black cloak, crawling on his hands and knees. A moment later the red-masked figure straightened, spread great wings and flew into the blue above the Himalayas.
A carrion vulture! Coming out of the Eng. lishman's cabin!
Pilsbury, of the Forest Reserve, stationed near Murree—whimsical, delicate, studious—a man who had a way with small creatures.
Beattie, his Chief-all man-plenty of chin, a bullock neck, a lot of appetites partially under control-said to be brave.
The deadly Karait, a creature of the blackest reputation of all India-thin as a lead pencil, black with the black of old leather, a dull gleam to her extra unlovely head-Pilsbury's one defense against the bullying of Beattie:
Around this triangle Will Levington Comfort and Zamin ki Dost interlace one of their remarkable Eastern stories—a study in the psychology of fear between animals and men.

The Dangerous lslands · By Frederick O'Brien For more than 400 years these siren islands, a bracelet of ivory and jade set in the sapphire Pacific, have been known to mariners as marking the most parlous piece of sea in all the round of the globe. They are the fairy islands of childhood, the coral strand of youth, the lotus lands of poesy. It takes but Frederick O'Brien's inimitable story-telling to put you on familiar terms with every interesting character on Niau, from the Mormon deacon who peddles bread to Chocolate, a mongrel pup of the Marquesas. An Evening with the "Damned" By K.K.Ardashir "Oh, Allah! We are indeed lost!" exclaimed old Abdul Hamid, thirty-fifth Sultan of Turkey, when an English friend said to him that the Turks were the only commercially honest people in Europe. Chatty and historical anecdotes go to make up this more than entertaining article about the old Sultan who once claimed that, The British Sovereign and I are the two greatest Mohammedan powers on the earth!" Singing Craftsmen of Peking . . . By Sam Dean American captains of industry marvel at the wonderful handicraft, skill of the Chinese, an abiding heritage from days when work was art and art gave joy and joy meant song. These merry artisans, members each of their powerful guilds, still specialize on beauty while the rest of the world concentrates on production Hindu Stories in American Negro Folk Lore
By Norman Brown There's nothing new-even under the Asiatic sun! Now we find that some of Uncle Remus' very best thrillers have their counterparts in the softly told stories that little Hindu children listen to at night from their Ayahs. Main Street in a Caucasian Village - By Elizabeth Anderson Molikans, Armenians, Russians, Turks, crowd Main Street in Dilijan, where even the mildest men looked ferocious when they stared from under their shagsy caps of tangled sheepskin at this plucky American girl who made the acquaintance of these swaggering Caucasians while doling out the supplies of a Relief Commission. Black Bull the Champion - . By Bernard Sexton A legend of India which holds a world of wisdom, philosophy and humor in its short but stirring length. The Great River ..... By L. Adams Beck All the jewels of Burma seem mirrored in the sparkling tales of life told in the golden shadows of the Shwe Dagon or voyaging along the silken river that skirts the lazy city of Rangoon. My Chinese Marriage ...... By M. T. F. Chapter III: First Daughter-in-law. The great racial instinct of the Chineseobedience to parents-now confronts this American girl as she accepts the position of first daughter-in-law in her Chinese mother's household.
