WORST SIGN OF THE TIMES.
By Dr. Tlmotmy BwlgU.
I heard a prominent graduate
of one of our universities say
that when he was a student
msny years ago there was in
the student community almost a
contempt for wealth. The
thoughts and ambitions of the
college men at that period were in the
line of higher things than wealth, and
in their estimate of one another they re
garded this as nothing. The a hole life
of the country has greatly chsnged since
then. We hare become a wealthy na
tion. We have passed from the simple
life of a quiet town, as it were, to the
luxury and. abundance of a great city.
The devotion of the people to money get
ting has become so great as even to be
alarming, and the one desire which seems
to unite all men together is the desire to
make something in this matter of money

LAYING A CABLE.
Vatcrlala Required for the Construc
tion of the Mew Pacific Line.
For the manufacture of the proposed
Pacific cable the largest In the world
an enormous amount of material will
be required. , It is estimated that there
will be needed 1,983 tons of copper wire,
1,260 tons of gutta percha, 2,300 tons of
jufe yarn, 4.3U0 tons of compound and
tar and 12,000 tons of steel Wire. Tbe
laying of the cable will take four spe
cially constructed gbfps and a staff of
1.000 electricians, cable engineers, etc.
The rate of laying a cable, in the ab
sence of unforeseen difficulties. Is about
seven nautical miles an hoar, and In a
couple of thousand fathoms of water
tbe cable takes as long as three hours
to sink to the bottom. When a cable Is
paid out it runs over a wheel at the
stern of tbe ship, having to pass on Its
way from tbe tank where it has been
coiled through a dynamometer, which
tells the strain to which it la being sub-

To land a cable some Interesting

are anchored on shore and around them
a, line Is passed and carried back to tbe
cable ship. To this line the end of the
cable to be landed la attached and float
ed ashore, buoyed np on inflated rubber
bags. The land end of a cable Is con
siderably larger than tbe part which is
submerged. Once on shore it Is drawn

tion and secured.
The new Pacific cable will be 8,000
miles long. So other cable In the world
Is half as long. When the new cable Is
laid there will be sufficient length of

against waist lacing, which is a greater
menace to the human race than foot bind
ing. It shocks a Chinese womsa just as
much to see a laced waist as it does a
Caucasian to look at a bound foot.
The Emperor Shun Cbih, who reigaed
from 1644 to lwG. issued an edict against
this fashion, positively prohibiting it, ant
it had been a practice ot Chinese women
since the year of your calendar. 970. an-
der the last Emperor of tbe Sung dynas
ty. This Emperor had a beautiful wife,
who delighted to please him by datkdatr.
To make her feet look more beautiful.
she used to bind them with strip of satin
until they resembled a crescent moon or
s bent bow. Thus the fashion began.
Paring more than s thousand years it
became general, and what was intended
first for beauty became a deformity.
The methods of binding ia vogue In
Chins and tbe period of commencing the
practice vary, but the bandages are ap
plied at from 5 to 8 years of age. Ths
general process consists of two stsges. A
niece of strong cotton cloth, about two
yards long and three inches wide, is first
bound around the foot, leaving the great
toe free, and doubling tbe others under
tbe sole so thst the toes of tbe right foot
peep out under tbe left or inner side of
the foot, snd tbe same method is reversed
'for the left. This reduces the width.
Each succeeding day the bandage is
tightened both morning snd night For
msny months sfter the binding is com
menced the little girl is compelled to run
np snd down on her sching feet to pre
vent mortification ot tbe flesh snd ten
dons setting in.
This process of binding continues for
one year. Tbe next stage is the shorten

then so arranged ss to draw tbe fleshy

The "dishonesty of native servants Is
proverbial among the English and
American residents in India, the Phil
ippines, China and Japan. Consequent
ly, if one Is living in any one of these
countries, and a friend were to send a
basket of fruit by his native servant,
or a shopkeeper sent one of his em
ployes to deliver some articles that you
had purchased, the servant or employe
after delivering t whatever be had
brought would band tbe recipient a
small slip of paper upon which appears
in the handwriting of tbe sender tbe
number and description of the articles
sent with a polite request that, in case
you found tbe articles as stated, you
sign the slip of paper and deliver It
back to tbe servant This form of re
ceipt Is a "chit."
The sender also asks In the "chlt
that In case the articles are not deliver
ed aa described you will state the same,
and hand the -"chit" back to the ser
vant to deliver to bis master or mis
tress. The "chit" Is to enforce honesty
on the part of tbe servant, and to pre
vent him from stealing all or a part of
the articles Intrusted to bis care. If
tbe sender should neglect to send a
"chit" along with the articles that he
has aent the chances are about one to
a million against you ever receiving
tbera. An oversight of this sort on the
part of tbe sender would appear In the
nature of a windfall to the average

Sacb was tbe original meaning and
application of the word "chit," a cor
ruption of a Hlndostanee word which
has tbe same meaning as "receipt" In
oar own tongue, but as In all similar
cases, the term "chit" baa been broad
ened In Its application so that to-day it
has other meanings. In addition to the
foregoing a "chit" la also a sort of prom
issory note to meet small obligations.
A man takes a drink at the bar, and not
having the money to pay for It he gave
the bartender a "chit" A man borrows
a dollar from a friend and gives blm a
"cblt." Tbus a "chit" Is In tbe nature
of a bond that enforces honesty wher
ever it Is In use. It Is really a praise
worthy Institution, as every person who
has lived In tbe Orient will admit.
