is sold by her parents at the high
est price they can obtain for her.
She never sees her husband,
nor lie her, until after they are j
married : if he chooses he can be !
livorceil from her for talking too I

fired, he sells her again. In the ;

other than black or blue. The j
manner in which thev

toes under the foot, which they
keep hound up lor aoont, eleven
years, when the foot becomes dead.
I have walked through thestivcts
when the women would bruh
against my dress so as to see my
feet, so they could tell to what
class I belonged. T wtmld say to
them, "I will show you my feet,
but do not pull my clot lies, .as it is
rude." When I would expose my
feet, to them they would exehiim :
"Why have you no real ladies in
America';" Ami the only way
that I could make them behove
that we had, was by telling them
that tiie women read books
like the men, which uiteilv a- '
founded them, as the real Chinese :
ladv is bron-rht im in the utmost
ignorance, :ml they only marry in
the rich families, ' because they
know and do so little ami need -o
much waiting upon that it takes
a rich husband to support them.

that her first -child was a little girl,
and she described to uie how she

wa nt out," she said, "and brought

to spare its lift , but he took the
little one and put its head in the
water, and held it there until it
was dead." Her second babe was
