K. T. Wong, '17E, of Canton, China,
talks on "Chinese Paintings" in the
fourth article of a series about that
The Chinese people have always been
interested in art and philosophy. It
is seldom that one does not see some
sort of paintings or scrolls of written
couplets or even quotations from the
classics, hanging on the walls.
The attitude of the Chinese has been
fostered to nature by the old books,
printed as far back as 1200 B. C. The
Chinese artist feels a sense of kinship
toward the flowers, the trees and birds
and it is with this comprehension, that,
of nature, that the Chinese paintings]
have been developed.
The art of painting in China has
been traced as far back as the Class-
ical period, which opened five centuries
before Christ. Two schools of paint-
ing, known as the Northern and the
Southern, sprang up under the Tang
dynasty when people began to resort
to the art as spiritual recreation. The
southern school was characterized by
its sternness and the Northern by its
Through the following dynasties the
scholars took up painting as a means
of pastimes. From now on the art of
painting began to mix with poetry and
philosophy. To the artist his work is
not a picture but a painted poem and
a pictoral interpretation of philosophy.
He is a poet and a philosopher as well
as an artist.
When the artist walks among the
mquntains, or rows on the river, ad-
miring the colors of the flowers and
listening to the birds, a fantastic idea
possesses him. This is his material

for his picture and poetry. He does
not take his easel and stool wherever
he goes, but the scene is impressed
upon his very soul and he reproduces
it on his silk. For this reason the
Chinese painting is purely suggestive
and subjective as against the photo-
graphic and objective nature of the
western art. The artist's primary pur-
pose is the recreation of his soul. He
is not concerned withathe commercial
value of his work, although people
may pay high prices for it. When a
Chinese artist puts his art on a com-
mercial basis, his fame drops. Peo-
ple do not admire his work any longer,
for they know that such work is much
inferior to that done just for recrea-
tion; the spirit is lacking.
Chinese paintings are divided both
according to size and subject. Accord-
ing to subject we have, Shan Shui,
landscape; Hua Hui, towering plant;
Jen Wu, human beings and things;
Ling Wao, plumes and feathers; Shu
Mu, trees; Shih Nu, ladies. According
to size we have Ta Chung Tang, Ta
Chung Tang, Li Chon, Ping Tiao, Shon
Chuan, and Tse Yeh.
The first two named are usually
hung in the central hall, Tan Chung
Tang opposite the door, while Chung
Tang are hung pn the side walls; Ping
Tiao, in sets of four, are used to dec-
orate the side walls of the inner rooms,
and Heng Pi, the horizontal pictures,
are hung over the entrances of the
During the present century Chinese
painting is in a stage of decline. The
works produced do not come up to
those of the preceeding periods. It has
also been influenced to a slight extent3
by the western art.'

Philadelphia, Jan. 8. -- Pitching,
horseshoes bids fair to rival baseball
among the natives of Santo Domingo,
who have taken to this, oldtime sport
with wild enthusiasm, according to
United States Marines just returned
here from the island republic. Horse-
shoe flinging is a daily habit and the
keenest rivalry exists among the lead-
ers, who, following the custom of
Uncle Sam's proteges everywhere,
take readily to all American games.
Since the American occupation the
Dominicans have developed many
promising devotees to the national
games, but the majority of the natives
prefer the more leisurely pastime of
making "dead-ringers" beneath the
palms to rounding the bases under a
tropical sun.

sity of Michigan. An electric engine
for hauling coal and ashes between
the central station and' the Michigan
Central railroad, a storage yard with
special coal-handling equipment, a
pneumatic ash conveyor system, means
of disposing of smoke at a distance
from the station, transmission and dis-
tribution of energy through tunnels,
and steam mains of different pressure,
all form part of the system that sup-
plies heat and light to the campus.
The central building is located on
Ann street,,but, despite its proximity
to the populated section of the city, is
constructed on lines that reduce its
obnoxious features to an almost neg-
ligible quantity. At the left of the
station is a large concrete coal yard
connected with the Michigan Central
railroad by means of a track 4,400 feet
long. On this operates a coal-hauling
electric engine; the power to operate
this engine being supplied by a third
rail the length of the yard and an
overhead trolley the remainder of the
distance. A steel crane spans the
width of the yard, and by means of a
bucket dumps the coal into a flue from
whence it is delivered to the boiler
room. Here electric coalfeeders take
charge of the coal and supply it to the
boilers as needed. The boiler room is
on the ground floor and contains four
pairs of 400 horse-power vertical water
tube boilers.
The electric machinery of the plant
on the second floor consists mainly of
two direct current generators and one
23,000 volt alternating generator. Two
switch boards supply the means of
control over the electricity obtained.
The energy, steam and electrical,
developed at . this station is trans-
mitted in large mains through a tun-
nel to sub-station on the campus lo-
cated between the gymnasium and the
Medical building. Branches radiate
from here in all direction and prac-
tically every building connected with
the university now obtains its steam
and electricity from the plant. Steam
is furnished at two pressures, high for
the laboratories and kindred uses and
low for heating purposes. This sys-
tem is complete in every detail, and,
according to Superintendent Lyman
R. Flook, of the buildings and grounds
department, is one of the big things
the department has accomplished in
the last few years.
