A Nation's Fate Was Sealed Fifty. Yards from Where He Stood! "T

HERE was a rattling of rickshaws, and I went below. On looking over

the wall, I saw that the Japanese were going away. Hasegawa's car

riage had already gone. Koreans in court dress were fluttering to and fro. It seemed impossible as I stood there in the moonlight behind the hedge, that the fate of a nation had been sealed within fifty yards of where I stood! The ministers had signed !” Yes, it was so. The Japanese had subjugated Korea, and a country of 12,000,000 people must bow to the inevitable.

Are you reading WILLARD STRAIGHT'S Life Story by Louis Graves now running in

ASIA

T last it has come to pass-a No-Acci

dent Week in fact as well as in name. During the three years in which there has been any public safety work to speak of, one large city after another tried to go through a single week without an accidental death, and while some really remarkable reductions in accidents were brought about, the results always fell just a little short of the goal. St. Louis in 1918 came through its “No-Accident Week" with one fatality, as against ten for the preeeding week and twenty-five for the corresponding week of the previous year; Cleveland last year during its “No-Acci. dent Week” reduced its score on this account from sixteen during the corresponding week of the previous year to six; the Lehigh Valley cities in a noteworthy “No-Accident Week” campaign in the spring of this year came through with only one fatality.

Ånd then Milwaukee proved that it could be done. With a population of more than half a million, with thousands of visitors in her midst, with 46,000 automobiles and motor trucks operating on her streets, Mil. waukee passed through the week of September 26 to October 2, inclusive—the week of the ninth annual Congress of the National Safety Council—without a single fatal accident. This in the face of an average of six accidental deaths for the entire previous year and an average of seven accidental deaths for the previous month.

Milwaukee has the honor of being the first large city to achieve this record, which is proof positive of what organized effort for safety can accomplish, and evidence of the fact that if a community is sufficiently aroused the accident slate can be kept clean not only in one specially designated week but throughout the year.

The records of Dr. F. N. Franklin, Coroner of Milwaukee County, show an average of seven accidental deaths a week for the month just prior to the ninth annual Safety Congress. For the week that the National Safety Council was in town there

in his book, and that is the page of which he and the citizens of Milwaukee are rightly most proud. As for minor accidents during Safety Week, it is estimated by Dr. Harry E. Bradley, Chairman of the Safe Drivers' Club of Milwau. kee and Police Surgeon of the Milwaukee Police Department, that the injury cases at the emergency hospitals of the city de creased forty per cent during Safety Week.

The saving in life was due to the intelsive campaign of the Safety and Sanitation Committee of the Milwaukee Association of Commerce. One of the most effective features of the campaign was the novel method of recruiting the children in the schools and their parents for the cause of safety. One hundred and twenty-five thousand letters, in the original handwriting of the children, written in the classroom at school, were taken home to their fathers and mothers, together with a pledge card. The child's letter requested its parents to sign the pledge of carefulness and co-operate in every way to prevent accidents on the street, in the home, and at work. Milton C. Potter, Superintendent of Schools in Milwaukee, estimates that fully ninety per cent of these pledges were returned, signed by the parents. Interest in this drive was stimulated among

The American MAGAZINE on the Orient
More than 60 IllustrationsArt Insert of Exceptional Interest
The story is attracting attention everywhere.

A Republic—With an Emperor Held in Reserve! This is the case in China today. An unbelievable situation-but true. The young heir to the throne is now fifteen years of age. The rumor was that he had been restored to power. They are thinking of marrying him to the President's daughter, and thus satisfy all factions. And many other astonishing plans are being considered. Read JOHN O. P. BLAND'S revelations in “The Last Imperial Manchu” in the December issue.

Bible Stories Through Chinese Eyes ! These pictures by a young Chinese artist would alone make any issue of a magazine worth while. This boy went to hear a missionary in his native country. Never had he heard the old Biblical stories. He was deeply impressed. He visualized the sacred tales enacted among his own Chinese people. Chinese lions, tigers and phenix march two by two into a Chinese ark, built by a Chinese Noah. And they kill the Chinese fatted calf (in the shape of a chicken) for the Chinese Prodigal Son, returning penitent from a Chinese gambling hell!

GOOD SPEECH WEEK

[blocks in formation]

GOOD

OOD SPEECH WEEK, November 1-8,

was observed more widely this year than at any time since its inception five or six years ago. In schools, colleges, normal schools, women's clubs, and other organizations the campaign for better English was carried on vigorously during the first week of November, and if incorrect grammar, faulty pronunciation, slang, and their kindredevils were not at least partially routed it was not due to lack of enthusiasm on the part of English teachers and their students.

Very helpful suggestions and literature were furnished by the American Speech Committee of the Chicago Women's Clab, of which Mrs. Katherine Knowles Robbins, Fine Arts Building, Chicago, is Chairman. This material was sent out free except for the postage. The “ English Journal,” published in Chicago; has also been sponsoring this movement for better speech, as has the National Council of English Teachers. While certain general lines have been followed in most of the schools observing the week, there has been an opportunity for much originality in devising new and effective plang. Contests in spelling, pronunciation, extempore speaking, essay writingthe theme being some phase of the good English problem-posters exhorting the students and the community to “Watch

The soothing antiseptic vapor is breathed all night; making breathing easy, relieving the cough and easing the sore throat and congested chest.

Cresolene is recommended for Whooping Cough, Spasmodic Croup. Influenza, Bronchitis, Coughs and Nasal Catarrh. Its germicidal qualities make it a reliable protection against these epidemics.

It gives great relief in Asthma.

genius revealed itself most naturally in letters. His contacts
