PULASKI WEEKLY NWS In h4ANCHUI00IA Loading Manchurian Flour (Prepared by National Geographic Society, Whlngton. D. C.)WNU Service. l," TIlE tliree prhicipal focal points of the Sine-Japanese disturbance in Manchuria-- Tsitsihar. Anganchl, and Chin- chowfu--Tsitsihar is, perhaps, the most widely known because It has been a stopping place and press box for world-gtrdlers in repent years. Tsltsihar Is the capital of Heilung Kiang, largest of the three provinces of Manchuria, and the principal city in a vast, only partially-developed area of rich farming and grazing land. Mil- itary activity Is no new sensation to the 35,000 Inhabitants of this brown- walled city in the fertile valley of the Nonnl river. Tsitsihar was built in 1692 to overawe marauding tribes of Mongols and Cossacks. Later China sent many bandits into exile In Manchuria. The medley of native population groups in the vicin- Ity of Tsltsthar forced the construction of huge bRj'racks there and the details of military units to the town, so that it Ires long had the aspect of a for- tress, Like every other important Manchurian city Tsitsihar owes its present wealth and activity to rail- roads. When the Chbiese Eastern railway was built as a short cut be- tween Chits and Vladivostok, Tsltsl- har was a slovenly settlement of ram- shackle buildings back of its crene- lated walls. Builders of the Chinese Eastern missed the town by laying the line 18 miles to the soutiL Later, however, a narrow-gauge spur was built, connecting with the Chinese Eastern at Tsltsihar station, Tsitsihar came into the recent "mis- understanding," however, through a new and extremely busy railroad line, constructed during the last decade northward from Taonanfu, through Anganchi, and crossing over the Chi- nese Eastern main line on a bridge at Tsitsilmr station, the Junction point of the narrow uge line. This new line is Chinese-operated and Japanese- owned from Taonanfu to Anganchl, and entirely Chinese owned and oper- ated from Anganchi to the city of Tsitsthar. The new line does not end at Tsitsl- hat but continues in a northeast direc- tion for 79 miles to Taianchen. Even- tually it will reach the Siberian bor- der and will connect with a branch of the Trans-Slberian railway at Bin- goveshchensk. Town With Modern Improvments. Few travelers visited isolated Tsltsl- har before the railroad came. For a time those who did passed by coffins strewn outside the town walls--coffins of natives whose families were un- able to pay burial expenses. Inside the walls the travelers saw a dingy panorama of dirty shacks lining un- paved and unlighted streets. Railroads have changed all thah Today Tsttsihar is busy town, great- ly changed and improved by modern development, While it is neither as large nor as modernised as the other Aboard a Sungari River BoaL acres only a third have so far been put into use. While Tsitsilmr is in about the same latitude as Seattle. Wash.. It suffers from extremes of heat and cold. In sunlnler tile thermometer rises above 95 degrees for days at a time, and in winter it nose-dives to 40 degrees be- low zero. Nevertheless the region around Tsitsihar contains some of the richest soil In the world, and is ca- pable of a good deal of future devel- opment. In the Nonni river Tsltsihar has a stream capable of car'ing a considerable amount of water trade in Junks and barges during the sum- mer months. The little village of Anganchl, cap- lured by Japanese forces in the drive on Tsitsihar, possesses an importance far out of proportion to Its limited population because it stands near a kind of "spark gap," supercharged with the economic ambitions and rail- way interest of Japan, China and Rus- sia in northwestern Manchuria. Why Anganchi Is Important. Anganchi is two miles south of Tsitslhar station. It is the northern- most station on the new Chinese-oper- ated, Japanese-built railway line from Taonanfu. Anganchl was practically unheard of until the new line, pushing up from Taonanfu during the last decade, built its terminal in the town. In a land which has constructed more miles of railway in recent years than any other part of the world, and which, in some places, lald new lines at the rate of a mile a day, it may seem strange that the two-mile gap between Anganchl and Tsitsihar sta- tion was not closed for many months Treaty rights, dating from the close of the Russo-Japanese war, were in- volved. The Taonanfu-Anganchi rail- way was built with funds loaned to the Chinese by a syndicate of Japanese hanks, who in turn gave the construc- tlon contract to the South Manchurian Itsilway company. When the line reached Anganchi the Chinese Eastern railway, Jointly con- trolled by Soviet Russia and China, objected to the crossing of its main line by a railroad linked with the South Manchurian railway (Japanese) interests. Consequently, when the line was finally continued to Tsltsihar sta- tion. to Tsitslhar itself and to the city of Talanchen beyond, only Chinese capital was employed, Aside from the yards and station of the railroad lines. Anganchi pot- sesses little to distinguish It from hun- deeds of other mud-walled villages in the wind-swept farming and grating lands of the Nonni river basin. The Inhabitants, several hundred in num- ber, are mainly Russians` although the influx of Chinese has been noticeable since the completion of the railway lines to the north and south of iL Chinehowfu s Shtpping Center.

The story, which burlesques some of the recent prison melodramas, is said to have required the construc- tion f huge sets and use of hundreds of extras. Most of the action centers about the blunders of Laurel and Hardy in a penitentiary to which they have been sent as punishment for their bootlegging activities.

Order of Eastern Star. held a joint installa- tion of officers in the Masonic Temple in Cornland on Thursday night, De- cember 31st, New Year's eve. Members of the two orders, with members of their families, enjoyed an oyster supper in the banquet hall at 5:30 o'clock and the installation ceremonies were conducted later in the lodge room. The following were installed as officers of the Masonic Lodge: W. M.--M. B. Drake. S. V.--D. Harris Bryson. J. V.--Harold Febus. Treasurer--Alvin Day. Secretary James T. Irving. S.D. Marshall H.

Of additional interest is the fact that the comedians are given an op- portunity to sing and dance in cer- tain sequences of "Pardon Us" which will prove a novelty to Laurel and Hardy fans. Supporting the stars are Wilfred Lucas as the cold-hearted warden. Walter Long as Tiger. June Marlowe as the warden's daughter, and James Findlayson as the harrassed instruc- tor in the prison school. The comedy was directed by James Parrott. Comedy, and the Fable, "Laughing Gas."

Joan Crawford. with the screen's most popular leading man. Clark Ga- ble. will be seen at the Mt. Pulaski Theatre on Sunday and Monday even- ings. January 10th and llth. in the talkie-picture, "Possessed." the highly dramatic st-ry of a factor)" girl who, rebelling avail:st an environment of drab poverty, ends up on Park Ave- nue to find that wealth and happiness do not necessarily go hand in hand. The picture was adapted from the Edgar Selwyn stage play, "The Mirage." in which Florence Reed cre- ated a sensation a few years ago. As the box'factorv employee who "gives up a small-to'n lover to be- come the mistress of a New York politician, Miss Crawford is said to have her strongest talkie roll to date. The plot is brought to a startling climax when the heroine, finding that her affair with Gable stands in the way of his becoming governor of the state, makes a public confession of her past at a crowded political con- vention. It is this episode which it is said gives Miss Crawford the great- est-acting opportunities she has ever been offered on the screen. Wallace Ford, popular New York stage player, makes his screen debut in the picture as the small-town lover. and important roles are filled by the amusing Skeets Gallagher, Frank Conroy, Marjorle White. John Miljan and Clara Blandick. PLEASE TAKE NOTICE There will be no pictures shown at two Manchurian provincial capitals, Mukden and Kirin, Tsitslhar has sev- eral wide, paved streets, electric lights, telegraph and telephone services. Tile-roofed houses, with coats of bright paint, are rising where old shacks once stood. Since the new north-south railroad has been added to the spur from the Chnese Easters railway, Tsltsihar is on the way to becoming one of the chief Industrial centers of Manchuria. Mills are grinding out meal as fast as soy beans can be brought from Manchurian fields. Its shops and stores throng with customers, and its railroad yards are scenes of constant movements of trains. The new line to Tsianchen broke all records for trac In Manchuria early this year. Manchus, Mongols, Koreans, Rus- sians, Yakuts, Chinese. Japanese and a few Europeans may be seen on the streets of the city, which is fast as- suming the cosmopolitan air of other Chinese trading towns. During the horse and cattle fairs Mongol cattle traders flock to Tsitslhar, nearly dou- bling the population. Manchurian horses come mostly from the grass-covered plains In the vicinity of Tsitsihar. The region is the native home of the pony which helped to build up the near-world em- pire of the great Kubta! Khan.

Between the station and the walled city are big military barracks, The provincial governmeut office is temporarily located in the University of Communications, north of the tracks.
