The Onerous Duties of China's Ambassador
to the United States.
It is not—at least it may not be gen
erally known—there arc a great many
things that hadn't ought to of not be
generally known; if I do not fail to
make myself clearly understood, bear
in mind that the discussion relative to
the uselessness of English grammar ns
she is taught, is a great strain upon the
nerves of a literary man; but whatti-
wazzasain (that's volapuk) is, that it
may not be generally known that the
Chinese Government some years ago
sent an ambassador to this country,
whose sole duty is to go to a city as
soon as he hears that the construction
of a cable road is in contemplation.
When the first car makes its trial trip,
this Celestial nmbassador is required
by his Government to look at it in
amazement nnd say: “No pullee flont
end; no pushes hind end; no mulee. no
horsee; runnee likee (! !) allee samee!''
It most sorely grieves a sensible China
man to talk in this idiotic way, but the
Imperial Government oompels this offi
cial to do this, in order to keep the
American people in a good humor. He
