FORDING A CHINESE HIVER.
rits Das In the- Stream's lied by Guides
I to Trap tho Unwary.
1 Travorsing tho conutiy from south
west to northeast and in a pouring rain,
i wo visited tho villages of Si-kou-ying,
j LTao-kwci-ying and Sang-ycin. Hero tho
j womon, dressed in their best clothes,
; stood watching ns on tho doorsteps,
j which would havo been quito a protty
sight, with their multicolor jupons and
trousers, had tho effect not been partly
tpoilcd by tho horriblo deformity of
their feet squeezed into microscopic
chocs. I possess a pair of theso shoes as
worn by a mandarin's wife, and tho
length of them is only 3 inches. Toward
noon wo reached Ya-lo-wau, on tho
banks of thoHung-ho river, a miserable
villago on a minusculo hill of yellow
earth. Tho river had to bo waded.
A Chinaman a beggar, I thought
volunteered to tako animals and men
Fafoly across for a sum of monoy, for ho
said thero were largo holes in tho river
bed, in which our animals would havo
lost their footing had wo crossed by
ourselves. I would not employ him, as
I hato-to bo imposed upon by humbugs,
and knowing tho littloway which theso
gentlemen havo of digging largo holes
on pnrposo in tho river bed while dry in
summer, so as to extort monoy from
timid travelers, I proceeded to "sell"
I guided my mules not right across
tho water, for tho hole3 aro generally
tin" whero most unawaro people are
likely to cross, but a few yards farther
up, thereforo landing every 0110 safo
on tho other side, with tho exception of
ouo donkey, who, in strict similarity
with all tho ovil spirits of China, insist
ed on going on his own account in a
straight lino in front of his nose, vrith
tho result that when ho reached tho
raiddlo of tho stream ho fell into ono
of tho holes, and with tho weight of tho
load he was carrying disappeared. Only
tho point of I1L3 cars could bo seen wag
ging oat of tho water. Tho holeman, if
I may call him so, who had eagerly
been watching for this, ran in tho wa
ter to his rcscuo and saved his life, for
which act I duly rewarded him. Fort
SOME PEOPLE'S RELIGION.
llaricn CratrforU Writes c Pointed Llttlo
lecture on Intolercacc.
Thero aro very geed and devout men
and womon who tako tho world pres
ent and to come quite literally, as a
mere fulfillment of their own limita
tions; who look upon what they know
as being all that need bo known, and
upon whatthoybclicvoof God and heav
en as tho mechanical conscqucnco cf
what they know, rather than as tho
canso and goal, respectively, of exist-
tenco and action; to whom tho letter of
tho law is tho arbitrary expression of a
despotic power, which somehow must
Be looked upon as merciful; who answer
all questions concerning God's logic
with tho tremendous assertion of God's
will; whoso God is a magnified man,
and M10so dovil is a malignant animal,
SLcnau only to God in understanding,
while cstremo from God in disposition.
il:cro aro good men and women who
to cso. a natural but not flippant
simiic tako it for granted that tho soul
is cast into tho troubled waters of life
rwithor.t the power to swim or even tho
possibility of learning to float, depend
ent upon tho baro chacco that socio ono
may throw it the lifo buoy of ritual re
ligion as its only conceivable means of
salvation. And tho opponents of each
particular form of faith invariably tako
just such good men and women, with
all their limitations, a3 tho only truo
exponents of that especial creed, which
they then proceed to tear hi pieces with
all tho caso such an unduo advantage
of false premise gives them. None of
tbcm has thought of intellectual mer
ry as being perhaps an integral part of
Christian charity. Faith they havo ia
abundance, and hopo a!s not a little;
but charity, though it bo for men's
sarthly Ills, and theoretically, if not al
ways practically, for men's spiritual
shortcoming?, is rigidly forbidden for
the errors of men's minds. Why? No
thinking man can help asking tho littlo
question which grows great in tho un
jnswering silenco that follows it llar
ton Crawford in Century.
Ono of my sons, aged IS, went with
thrco other boys to batho in Inglemcro
pond, near tho Ascot rr.co coarse. Ho
walked into tho water to about tho
:ltpth of four feet, when ho spread oat
bis hands to attempt to swim.
At that instant a largo fish caino up
and took his wholo hand into its mouth,
but finding itself unablo to swallow it
relinquished its hold, and tho boy, turn
ing round, prepared for a hasty retreat.
Hi. companions, who saw tho fish,
fcra.-nbled out of tho pond as fast as
My son had scarcely turned around
tcforo tho fish camoup behind him, and .
seizing ins otuer baud erosswiso mfiict
sd scmo very deep wounds on tho back
ai it. Tho boy raised his freo hand,
which was still bleeding, and struck tho
great fish a hard blow on tho head,
wh. 11 it disappeared. Tho other boys as
sisted my son to dress, bound up his
Land with their handkerchiefs and
truught him home.
Wo took him to tho surgeon, who
ih-cs?cd seven wounds in ono)iaud, and
50 great was tho pain tho nest day that
tho lad fainted twice. Tho littlo finger
was bitten through tho nail, aud it was
more than sir weeks beforo it was well.
Ilio nail carao off, and tho scar remains
to thi3 day. Fishing.

COMPETITION IN BABIES.
Wherein a Word to a Wise Papa Onglit to
"Iam getting to bo tho most bare
faced and versatilo liar on earth," said
tho bachelor, "and it's all on account;
of two littlo innocent babies. Two of
my friends at tho office havo recently
been invested with tho honor of pater
nity both boys. Prouder papas you
never saw. Ono of them, Jones, is an
amateur photographer, and tho other
Jay ho took a picturo of his baby and
brought it to tho office. t
"Of courso you know how intelligent
a child of one month looks," continued
the bachelor, stroking his bald head'
with tho air of a connoisseur in infan
cy, "but tho boy3 in the offico were
loyal. They sworo it was the brightest
looking kid they had ever seen and that
It was tho imago of Jones.
' 'If it had been any ono elso's child,
Jones would havo knocked somebody
down for tho insult, but ho took it as a
great compliment and stuck tho pic
turo up in a frame on his desk.
"This wa3 too much for Smith tho
other papa. Ho hasn't any camera of
his own, so ho got a young man who
lives next door to como in and tako his
baby's picture, and ho brought it down
to tho offico as an opposition to Jones'.
Really I'm Eorry for Smith if his baby
looks liko that picture, but I rather
think tho amateur artist libeled the
child and made it the monster it ap
pears. "Tho picturo was not focused prop
erly. It represents Smith in tho back
ground holding on his kneo a mammoth
infant nearly as big as he is. The ba
by's hands aro outstretched toward tho
camera and look as though they might
belong to Mr. Fitzsimmous or Mr. Cor
bett. Smith thought it was beautifnl,
and when somo ono suggested that tho
boy looked just exactly liko him ho or
dered drinks all around and put tho pic
turo up on his desk as a further opposi
tion to Jones'.
"Every timo I come into the offico I
havo to stop and admiro those pictures,
and I'm acquiring great self control by
keeping a straight faco whenever Jones
or Smith says, 'And still you will re
main a bachelor, will you?' ' New
BREAKFAST IN BED.
Thla la tho Way In Which to Enjoy the
Height of Ianury.
Thero is nothing which gives one quite
tho samo feeling of luxury and afflu
ence as breakfasting in bed that is,
unless ono is forced to do it. Then it
seems merely an annoyance. But when
tho woman whom unkind fato and do
mestic or business duties usually force
to bo up with tho dark can lio in bed
aud have a daintilyappointed breakfast
tray brought up to 4hcr sho feels that
the final joy of sybaritism is hers.
Sunday morning is tho best timo for
tho daughter of toil to indulge in this
luxurious habit. If sho is a churchgo
ing woman, sho may manago by having
breakfast at;9:15. If sho desires to bo
both pious and lazy, there aro theso
who compromiso by reading morning
servico in.bedj .and their method isper--baps
not to 1& tifepiscd: - 1 -
The fiKtijSgC toward enjoying this
luxury is- t&jera'iiwarm bath, hair
brushing an3 tha, like. .Then slipping
on a bath robe or' a dressing sack, the
seeker after; luxury should slip back into
bed, adjust!' her pillows comfortably and
proceed to ' enjoy her breakfast. It
should bo an; unusually dainty ono and
served withthe most appetizing regard
for appearances. Tho tray should bo
covered wiih a delicately embroidered
cloth. Thci china pot in which tho coff eo
comes up should be as pretty as coffee
pots can be, the sugar basin and cream
jug the very perfection of daintiness.
There should be a littlo glass bowl of
mignonette or violets, or a couple of car
nal ions, or even somo fragrant green
geranium stalks. A bunch of grapes,
duskily purple or pink and opal, coffee
clear as amber aud fragrant as only cof
fee can be, toast, a slice of bacon and
an egg or eggs boiled form a breakfast
fit to servo on tho pretty tray.
If tho woman who breakfasts in bed
will proceed to spend the rest of tho
day there, sleeping when sho can, read
ing a little, entirely undisturbed by tho
cares of her household, sho will ward
off tho approach of hidecus old ago half
a decade. Philadelphia Press.
