The Shih Pao, contains the following
story translated from the Chinese Timet-
“There is a prevailing custom in a dis
trict called Sheng-teh, in Canton prov
ince, among female society to form dif
ferent kinds of sisterhoods, such as All-
sisterhoods, etc. Each sisterhood con
sists of aliout ten young maidens who
swear vows to Heaven never to get
married, as they regard marriage as
something horrid, believing their mar
ried lives would lx? miserable and un
holy, and their parents fail to prevail
upon them to yield. A sad case has
just happened: a band of young maid
ens ended their existence by drowning
in the Dragon river, because one of
them was forced by her parents to be
married. She was engaged in her
childhood before she joined this sister
hood. When her parents had made
all the necessary arrangements for her
marriage she reported the aftair to the
other members of her sisterhood, who
at once agreed to die for her cause if
site remained constant to her sworn
vows to be single and virtuous. Should
she violate the laws of the sisterhood
and yield to her parents her life was to
lx? made most unpleasant by the other
members and she be taunted as u worth
less being. She consulted with them
the best mode of escaping this mar
riage, and they all agreed to die with
her, if she could plan to run away from
her parents on tlie night of the mar
riage. As there were many friends to
watch her movements it was almost
impossible for her to escape, so she at
tempted her life by swallowing a gold
ring, but any serious consequence that
might have resulted was prevented by
the administration of a powerful emetic
and she was finally made over to the
male side to her grief. According to tlie
usual custom she was allowed to return
to her parents. During all this time she
was planning a way to escape to her
sisters. By bribing tlie female servants
she was taken one night to her sisters
under the cover of darkness. The sis
ters at once joined with her to termi
nate their lives by jumping into tlie
Dagon river with its swift currents,
which rapidly carried them off This
kind of tragedy is not uncommon in
this part of the land. The officials have
from time to time endeavored to check
the formation of such sisterhoods, but
all their efforts are in vain. They must
have reasons of their own for establish
ing such societies. Married life must
