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.

"The evltlvuc 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 dynasty, or A. l. 4.VS, there were Uve blkshus, or Iluddhlst monks from Cnhul, who traveled there ami promul gated the knowledge of the doctrines, books and Images of Iluddhisui.

LIFE OF THE PHILIPPINE GIRL. She Arises Karly to Attend to Religion and Household Duties.

I do not know that I can better describe It than by following a society young lady of Manila through tho ordlnnry events of one day's existence. It may Interest American women to know how their sisters beyond the seas pass their lives, The day of tho fair Filipino Is a long one. With her there Is no liny rising to a 0 o'clock coffee and tonst. She Is usually up with the sun, not later than 0, and, If very religious, as early as 4, that she may attend early mas. Ilroak fast Is set early, about 0 o'clock. Then come the morning duties of the house hold, sewing, washing, cooking, or whatever there may he, for our young lady is not expected to spend her days In Idleness. The midday meul Is tukeu at 12 o'clock, In order that the warmest hours of the day may be the hours of rest, About two hours are thus spent In tho enjoyment of the siesta, when our lady fair arises, refreshed and ready for tho later pleasures of the day. At 4 o'clock the "afternoon tea" Is served. This Is a light repast, usually consisting of chocolate, with rice and cakes, or other slmplo viands. Then, at the hour of 6:30 or 8 o'clock, the car riage is brought out and tho dully ride taken to the Luneta, the beautiful park on the bay south of the city. Here the military band discourses sweet music every evening, and the beauty and fashion of Manila meet and enjoy the evening air and melodious strains. Re turning from the drive about 7 o'clock, the evening meal, or supper, comes next In order, after- which our belle of Ma nila Is free for any mode of spending the evening hours that may appeal to her; perhaps a friendly visit, a trip to tho theater or opera, or nn "at home" to receive callers.
