From Ihe Boston Herald.
Ch.n"' onc °* the most interesting
countries in the world, aside from the
fa t that international complications have
, :o >v fastened the world’s attention upon
it . wirhin the next century the ancient
empire will probably become so far mod
ernized as to lose much of the pictur
fsqueness which belongs to its antiquity.
The traveler who visits the Middle King
dom at the present time is taken back, in
effect, many thousands of years in the
history of the world; he sees things as
they were ages ago—the manners, customs
ar.d ways of living that belong to
a vanished people.
For example, what is there in the world
more strange than the famous road to the
Ming tombs-the burial places of the Ming
emperors, who were the last native rulers
of hina? This family governed the em
pire from 1368 to 1644 A. D., and the ave
nue leading to their private cemetery
may fairly be regarded as one of the
wonders of the world, being lined on eith
er side with statuary, the like of which
1§ not to be found anywhere else—a series
of colossal figures of human beings and
enlmals sculptured in gray granite. The
avenue, proceeding from one of the gates
of Nanking, is a mile in length, and ends
at a marble gate, which is by far the
meet stately and beautiful structure of
i;. kind in all China.
The statues comprise a pair of elephants
standing and a pair kneeling, four pairs
of ivilians and two pairs of warriors, a
pair of horses erect and two lying down;
also camels, lions, and tigers in pairs.
They are arranged at. intervals on oppo
site sides of a paved, but neglected and
grass-grown, road, leading from the gate
to the tombs. They bear witness to the
glory of e dynasty under which China was
'ar greater and more powerful than: she
Is to-day. Passers-by throw a pebble at
each elephant; if it lodges on the back
of the sculptured beast, good luck is in
dicted. The elephants in thin series are
really admirable works of art, with no
suggestion of the grotesque treatment so
commonly exhibited in Chinese sculpture.
About 80.000 rebels were condemned to
death and disposed of by thesummarypro
ess of decapitation ot the close of the
last great revolutionary movement. When
prisoners in China are to be judicially
slaughtered, they are fetched to the kill
ing place, and a list of their names is
read aloud and compared with tickets at
tached to the victims. The hands of the
latter are pinioned and they are obliged
to kneel on the ground to receive the
blow of the executioner, which is* delivered
with a broad-bladed knife like a cleaver,
a single stroke severing the head from
The headless bodies are usually left
where they have fallen until night, when,
if their friends do not remove them, the
Authorities take them away and bury them
i the puiblic cost. When notorious robbers
are executed it is a common thing to cut
out the gall-bladder, an organ in which,
according to the Chinese belief, the cour
age of a man resides—and to sell it, the
purchaser imagining that in this way he
e quires t' ** quality in question.
In a Chinese court the magistrate sits
behind a desk, on which are writing ma
terials, the official seal and cups con
taining tallies, which are thrown down to
Indicate the number of blows ordered for
culprit. On either side are secretaries,
and one or more assistants aro present
with Instruments of torture. Inscriptions
are hung on the walls, one of which ex
horts the judge to be merciful. The ac
‘used kneel in front of the tribunal. It is
to be feared that there is little Justice to
be had in Chinese courts, tfie prisoner hav
ing no opportunity to plead either person
ally or through counsel, while the most
Atrocious tortures are inflicted even upon
witnesses to compel confessions. As might
be Imagined, the jails nre horrible.
One of the most common of criminal
punishments in China consists in fasten
ing about the neck of the offender a square
frame made of boards, which has a hole
through the middle of it for the purpose.
This is called a “cangue;” it weighs from
twenty to thirty pounds, and the name,
re s i.-fence and crime of the delinquent are
written upon it in large characters for
the information of passers-by. The dis
ttvsS suffered by the wearer is much more
p-vere than would be supposed at first
glance, for he cannot feed himself or even
drink a cup of water. He cannot scratch
bi* own nose or drive away the flies, and
Sometimes his face is smeared with sweet
*n*d water to attract Insects. Sleep is al
mosf out of the question. A soldier is al
s put on guard over a victim of this
hnioiw form of cruelty, who may starve
t" 'loath or die of thirst if the myrmidon
the law refuses to permit the man’s
fnends to help him. Women, when con
demned to the cangue. are nearly always
linked together by twos or threes in a

Fortune Teller’s Shop.
One of the accompanying illustrations
shows a scene in a fortune teller’s shop.
In China, fortune telling is a recegn zed
profession, and at Foochow one finds a
whole street tilled with their places of
business. One can get a different •fortune
in each, in Chintse cities the professions
and arts locate themselves in particular
quarters; there are streets of curio deal
ers of silk merchants, of silversmiths, of
jade polishers, of ink grinders, of fan
There are orly a very few actresses in
China, fen ale parts on the stage being
aken usually by boys, who assume them
with a cleverness that is really wonderful,
a I the little subtleties and refinements of
a lady’s dress, carriage, and deportment
beirg counterfeited to perfection. All imi
tations in make-up are disdained; the
embroidery on the dresses is of the finest,
and no tinsel is employed. On the other
hand, the acting is altogether artificial.
When a man appears on the stage with
a spear in his hand, he is understood to
be on horseback; with a banner, he is a
company of soldiers; with a fan. he is
a general, and so on. Not many perma
nent buildings for theaters are to be found
in the empire, and the players are mostly
members of strolling bands whose ser
vices may be hi ed when wanted. A t m
porary playhouse b’g enough to hold 2 -
00) pecple can be run op in a day, cone! t
ing merely of a framework covered with
m'ts. A play asts thiee days usually; the
acting is chiefly pantomime,and the scen-
is painted on mats at the back and
sides of the stage.
The Chinese are fond of pets or all
sorts, and. in the cities persons are often
seen going about with finches or canaries,
which ore allowed to fly about for exer
cise, being secured to the hand of the
owner by a long thread attached to one
leg This is called “giving the bird a
chance to breathe.” An extremely small
beast of canine persuasion, known as a
’’sleeve dog,” Is carried in the wide sleeve
of its proprietor. The slant-eyed Celes
tials use chairs,* tables anil bedsteads quite
like our own, but their furniture is very
solid, being made to last forever, and
the chairs frequently have stone seats.
Of discourse on the eubject of Chinese
oddities there can. be no end. The bell*
in the temples are made exactly on the
pattern of great sleigh-bells, though some
of them are as much as two feet in diam
eter. It would never occur to us to wash
our tea* before brewing the infusion, but
that is what those Orientals do, and per
haps they have some good reason for it.
But how funny does appear the method
adopted by their candy dealers, who go
through the streets shaking a number of
straws of different lengths in a cylindrical
box like an elongated dice-box! The
straws are kept shaken continually, and
presently along comes a boy who wonts
a piece of taffy. Instead of paying a cop
per, as an American boy would do. he
draws a straw from the box. If he pulls
a long straw, he gets hie candy for noth
ing; if a short one, he pays double price;
and there are intermediate lengths which
split the difference.
The Miracle of the Monsoon.
From the London Mall.
The Viceroy of India has telegraphed to
the Secretary of State for India, that the
monsoon is setting in on the Malabar
coast. We append a description of the
annual arrival of the rains—rains which
this year, it is hoped will terminate In-
dia’s grievous famine—written by a cor
respondent at Cannanore, a military can
tonment on the Malabar or western coast
of India, 400 miles south of Bombay:
