SINdLE TREE MAMvWCIC.
The novelty of th hammock showt
In the-picture consists In Its ability to
keep on the shady aid f the tree at
all hours of the day, and It also has
the advantage of being adapted for us
on a single tre or the side of a house,
where only one support Is available.
Of course. It will not curve from end
to end like the ordinary hammock, but
It has a swinging motion of Its own.
and It can be made quit as comforta
ble for resting as those now In use.
The attachment to the tree Is made by
a ball and socket Joint and the two
Hooks, with the suspending cables, the
Joint allowing the hammock to swing
laterally In substantially the same
plane. By providing duplicate heads
for suspending the hammock It can
be moved around the tre Into another
position as the day sdvances, thus si
vrays keeping under the shady aide of
the tree, and when not In use It folds
up flat for storage In small compass.

la both documentary and substantial,''
says Hurler' Monthly.
Of the evidence of early Chinese doc
ument, Prof, fryer says:
"The narrative states that there was
a ItudOhlKt (irlcat named Hut Hlicn,
originally a native of Cabul, who, In
the year 4UU A. 1., timing the reign of
the KuiMror Yung Yuan, cam from
the country of fuming to Ktiigchow,
the raoltal of the dynasty ut Tat, situ
ated on the Ulver Yang tne, Tim coun
try helug In a state of revolution, It
was mt till the year that he had
an opportunity of going to the court of
the KuiiM'ror Wu Tl, of the new I.lang
dynasty, lie gave present to the Km
Knir of curious articles brought from
fUKMiig, among which was a material
looking like silk, hut the threads of
which could support a great welulit
without breaking. This was evidently
the llher of the Mcxlcnu agave. He
also presented a mirror of a foot In
diameter, posm-snlng wonderful proper
ties, ami rcNciuhlliig those In use In
Mexico mnl other localities In America
at that tlluo. The Kmperor treated ill in
as an envoy from Kusang, and deputed
ono of the four principal feudal lords,
named Yu Kle, to Interrogate him re
specting the country, and to take down
his story In writing. This was accord
ingly done, and wv have what Is un
doubtedly the orliilual text, with only
perhaps lure and ther a typographical
error which tun be easily explained,
"Among other thliiKS, 1 1 ill Hheu said
that the people of Kusang were former
ly In liiiiornui-e of tho doctrine of
Ituddha, hut during the reign of the
Chinese Kmperor Ta Ming, of the Sung

Cnhul, who traveled there ami promul
gated the knowledge of the doctrines,
books and Images of Iluddhisui. Their
labor were aumwiful, so that they or

and thus the customs and milliners of
the people were soon reformed, He

the country of fusaug as IhMXK) II, or
0,oO0 miles, to the east of Kamsi-hatka,
and also due east from China. It grows
great numbers of fusang trues, which,
when they llrst appear above ground,
are like bamboo shoots, ami tho people
eat them. Threads are spun from the
skin of the plant, which are woven Into
cloth from which clothing la made, or
else It la made luto e ' .oroldery. They
also use the lllirou'i material of th
fusang for making paper, These aud
many other features seem to point un
mistakably to the Mexican agave. Hod
pears are mentioned, which agree In
descrlpllun with the fruit of the prickly
pear, while grapes are represented as
plentiful. There Is plenty of copper,
hut no Iron; aud no money valuo la put
on gold or silver. Their market are
free and there are no II ted prices.
"The manners aud customs of the

of soldiers and military weapons, cities

To suppose that 11 ul Hhen could have

riage is brought out and tho dully ride
taken to the Luneta, the beautiful park
