CHINESE TURNING TO SPORTS
Necessity for Physical Culture Is Be-

Physical culture and all types of

held In contempt by the Chinese and
consequently (lie Shanghai boys did
not know what the Joy of indulging In
Iwseball and other sports meant says

rrchery nnd the other classic sports
played an Important part In Chinese
education. With the dawning of
Chirm's literary golden age however
the scholars could not see bow mental
perfection could he attained' If there
was any thought of athletic prowess
Muscles and brawn they said be-

Old Hotel In Qulney Mass. Associated
With Famous Men Ig to Become
The old Hancock house situated In
City square Qulney has ceased to be a
hotel. The present owner of the pro-
erty Henry M. Faxon Is to have the
upper part removed nnd the first floor
converted Into a InrRe business block.
;i'lie hotel has only provided sleeping
quarters for a number of years.
In the days of the otd stage conch
the Hancock house was one of the
lending hotels of southeastern Massa-
chusetts and the first place to which
traveler." resorted for refreshments.
Among the distinguished men who
have been entertained there was Dan-
iel Webster jtunjj to and from his
home on the old Plymouth couch. On
Recount of Mr. Webster's liberality In

18317 but several years ago the ground
lloor was remodeled Into stores and
only thu tippur part was used as the
hotel propr. When Adams acailomy
was In Its prime it be place was used as
a boat ding house for students who
cume to Qulney from other cities and
states nml were obliged to make their
abode In the city of presidents.

to help himself. We run as high as
1.200 customers a day here. This Is In

Two members of thu bar were trying
a replevin suit In (lie superior court
recently nnd In tbe course of the trial
got Into a sharp wrangle as lawyers
sometimes do over the admission of a
certain piece of evidence. The wrangle
.resolves) Itself Into an oral battle In
which both law or tried to talk at
They spoke In loud tones and at a
rapid-lire gait. When the smoke li'id
cleared away and the ease was over
they wen- iUlte surprised to learn iKit

were both talking at !) same time.
