To get a photograph of Chi-nese females is almost as hard as to photographa herd of wild deer. Ladies are supposed tokeep away from any man, and of course a foreignman is specially terrible. The picture of thewomen and their baskets was obtained by cau-tious stalking behind some Chinese, although theirattention was attracted by a single of the members ofmy staff.

Sooner or later the blow pipe solderer will becalled upon to make repairs on Britannia metal,and will be surprised to locate that it will be impos-sible to solder the metal, owing to the excess ofmoisture beneath it. The best way to overcomethis, which is virtually the only trouble thatoccurs, is to cut out a tiny square patch. Theedge can be cleaned and a patch of new metalcarefully fitted into the hole.
