The Huguenots were the Puritans of France In the sixteenth and seven teenths centuries. The name was first used about 1560; Us origin Is un known. The Huguenots suffered se verely In the reigns of Francis I and his immediate successors, and after 1562 were frequently Involved in war, under the leadership of such men as Admiral Coligny and King Henry of Navarre, afterwards Henry IV of Fnmce. Coligny and from 20,000 to 30,000 others fell In the massacre of St. Bartholomew, August 24, 1572. It Is disputed in history whether this was suddenly, caused by the discov ery of Huguenot plots or had been premeditated. In spite of all this, thay continued numerous and power ful and the edict of Nantes, Issued in 1598 by Henry IV gave them full po litical and civil rights. Their power was broken after the surrender of LaRochelle and the revocation of the edict of Nantes by Louis XIV in 1685, and hundreds of thousands of. Hugue nots went Into exile, going to Prus sia, Holland, Switzerland, England, Scotland and America. Chinese Curb Tobacco Users. China's ministry of the interior has telegraphed the following circular in structions to the Shenchangs and Tu tungs all over the country, according to the Peking Daily News : Tt has been noticed that almost everybody in the country has Indulged In the use of cigars or cigarettes, which will become a worse curse to the nation than opium in former days unless some restrictions are Imposed. It is hereby decided that before taking up any measure for the total prohibi tion of its use, the following restric tions shall be imposed: First, no boy or girl under eighteen years of age shall be allowed to smoke cigars or cigarettes; second, any military or na val man using it shall be punished ; third, the use of cigars and cigarettes in all government schools and colleges shall be strictly prohibited. Far Eastern Bureau Bulletin. Legislators Must Work. A novel method of forcing . attend ance in the chamber of deputies of the Republic of Argentina has been sug gested by a member who Is out of pa tience with those who draw their sala ries from the public purse but fail to fulfill their constitutional obligation of regular attendance. The suggestion is In the form of a bill providing for' payment per day to deputies instead of a lump sum every month.
