B*cjfr a Terror of China.
From the New York Herald.
All Chinamen believe in society, not that
60ciety that is banded together tor social
amusement, but the kind that is formed
for protection or aggression. In fact,
China is the hotbed of eooietles. and there
are more of them than can be enumerated
by the missionaries.
Perhaps the oldest of these societies is
that formed by the beggars It is as
powerful almost as that of the Boxers,
and it numbers thousands in its ranks,
as any one can testify who has visited the
principal cities of the Celestial Empire.
The head of the society is called “King
of the Beggars,” and he rules as if he
were a protentate. He is recognized by
the government, and his orders are obeyed
implicitly by all his subjects, the mem
bers of the society.
The seat of his government is at Pekin.
Before its gates are thousands of the
members of his society, and they are a re
pulsive looking crowd. They fear no man
save their king, and are as likely to
clutch your coat with scaly hands as not.
The only way you can treat with them is
to buy them off.
They prey upon their own race as well
as upon foreigners, and onoof their meth
ods resembles that of the famed brigands
of Italy. I accompanied a missionary
party to Shanghai several years ago, and.
with that city as my headquarters, visited
several of the outlying towns. The beg
gars there were as thick a* bees.
While I was on an excursion to Fu
Chang, a small town about fourteeen
mile* from Shanghai, the hoarde of beg
gars descended upon the place It wtis
fairly besieged. Beggars sat in every
doorway, nor would they move, and it
was Impossible to escape them For sev
eral days this siege was continued, until
finally the principal merchants of the
place signified their willingness to pay.
The king of the horde arrived the next
day. a sum equal to $1,300 was paid over
to him, and by nightfall there wasn’t a
f*ign of a beggar. They had gone to an
other town to levy tribute.
Book# could be written of the beggars
and their methods, but perhans their
worst offense is at the graveyards. They
frequently refuse to allow bodies fo he
buried until they are paid, and I heard
that when the mourners ore obstinate th*
beggars actually jump into the grave,
whore they remain until they obtain the

A GOOD SORT OF WAR LETTER.
The Rooky Boer Langnagf, a Patch
Lass an Teacher, and a Drmattc
From the London News.
It is a bad thing to travel In a country
during war time even when you are fa
miliar with its language, but it is far
worse when you know only enough of the
native tongue to make yourself misunder
stood, says the Orange River Colony cor
respondent. I have managed to get my
self into some gorgeously picturesque sit
uations on this account, and more than
once have vowed to master the Boer dia
lect or wreck my talking apparatus in the
attempt. It is not an easy language to
learn. It is very like their kopjes*, steep,
rough, rocky, and disjointed; and. like the
kopjes, you can’t take k by storm, but
must climb steadily and with patience,
and make sure of one step before you
venture on the next. It is a superb lan
guage to use when one is driving bullocks,
or blacks; the first sentence seems to roll
off the lip 6 like a malediction, and the
second chops off short like the bark of a
toy terrier. I should ask for no finer form
of speech on earth if I wanted to curse
mine enemy, but how on earth they man
age lo make love with it passes my com
prehension. Still, I thought it might come
in handy if only to frighten Australian
horses with, and kept constantly on the
lookout for a chance to learn; and verily
my chance came unto me in due season.
I didn't learn the dialect, but I learned
something else, which may prove equally
useful in later life.
We had pitched camp for a week, in
order to allow the ever-dallying provision
convoys to catch up to us; so, obtaining
permission from headquarters, I saddled
up and rode out to do a little scouting on
my own account, for I have long since
learned that it’s no use hanging around
camp if you want to know anything about
the real life of the folk who dwell in the
land. About six miles from our lines I ran
against a dainty little farmhouse cuddled
up against the slope of a shrub-covered
kopje. On one side of the dwelling a trel
liswork of vines* broke the wind, and on
the other a long, double row of orange
trees beautified the scene. Tall, graceful
popular trees whisped in the wind at both
front and rear, while a pretty flower gar
den, fragrant with flowers, spread far
away in front of substantial dwelling.
I was admiring these things from my
horse’s back when it suddenly dawned
upon me that I had possibly played the im
becile in straying so far from camp. But
it was *oo late to hang back. If the far
mer-folk were friendly, I was in luck;
for the inside of such a dwelling could
not be ill-supplied with creature comforts.
If, however, they were hostile, I was at
their mercy. I had no desire to match my
pony’s pace against the flight of a Mauser
bullet; so humming a song and thinking of
a psalm I rode forward as if certain of a
kindly welcome. An elderly Boer with a
kindly face rnp-t me at the door and gave
me the time of day with all civility; a nig
ger lad took hold of my bridle, and I
swung myself out of the saddle just in
time to receive a civil greeting from the
farmer’s wife, just such a farmer’s* wife
as one is apt to see in any part of Eng
land, healthy, wholesome, substantial,
well-fed, and well-clothed. They invited
me inside, and there their four daughters
introduced themselves to me. They all
talked English as well as I could, and be
fore I had been there twenty seconds I
had arrived at the conclusion that I should
never get a better chance to study the
language of the people of our foes, and
determined to sacrifice myself upon the
flinty shrine of duty. Three of the maid
ens were plain-faced, good, honest-looking
girls, but the fourth had a face like a
young preacher’s first public prayer—a face
that many a man would risk his life for.
So much of my wbol* career has been
passed amid rhe roughfr ard more rugee 1
scenes of life that a d*'script ion cf dainty
womanhood comes awkwardly from me.
But I have read so much about the ugli
ihss and clumsiness of the Boer women
in British journals that I should like to
try and de-cribe this daughter of the
ve dt, a though rn’y a fanners
I do not know if she should be called
short or ta.ll, but her cheek could have
nestled comfortably on the shoulder of a
fair man. I do not know how
much hair she had, but thtre was enough
of it to make a fellow feel as if it did
not matter a rap if half the earth was
bald. It was not red. nor yellow; it was
Ike honey kissed by sunshine. She had
the sort of forehead which one never seas
on the face of a fool —Nature’s signboard
for an ?mp© ium for brains. Her eye* wer,*
lorge, brown, and fearless. not bold, nor
yet waveiing. Her mouth was perfect, not
one of those sepulchres which disfigure
some feminine faces, not childishly small
like a bud bursting into bloom, but a
strong, true mouth, large enough for a
prayer to slip through, hut not b g enough
to swear with. Her waist would just
about fill the crook of a strong man's
arm. and make h m feel that there was
no room for anything else under heaven.
The arch of her bust was like the curve
on a wave as it breaks on the heach in
the bay. net the stiff lath and plaster
models one is ant to see ■walking round
the stree s of cities. Her hands were
shapely, brown, and strong, a lit

So she looked when I saw’ her, and I
said unto my soul: Verily, it is a good
thing for a man to know something of
his eremies* language, and I made up my
mind to learn. If was flfih evening
after that, and I had regieterel my fifth

down toward the quarter-m'le-long ave

visit, for our troops were on the move
at dawn. As I sauntered forward I heard
the rustle of a woman's skirts amid the
bushes on my right, and looking in that
direction I paw he navy-blue dresr and
the red-gold hair of the lady who had
been teaching me Dutch. I had not many
seconds to look at her. but. brief as the
time was. I had long enough to notice
that one hard held the blue s’rlrts switch
'd up so tha about a foot of white petti
coat was displayed. I also noticed that
she was holding toward the orange walk,
which I had long since learned was
known in the family as “the lovers’

did net turn toward rre at all, but, like
many another fool. I was pufTed up in

the field, into the shady walk.
I meandered like a he-goat through a
gap in a hedge; I walked about fifty
yard*, and *aw no one, heard no one.
Then all at once I found myself looking
right in the face of a big, hairy savage,
who wore a tweed coat and a bandolier
full of cartridge*. In hi* hand* he car
ried a handy Ilftle Mauser carbine.
"Well. Mr. Spy,” said the haJry Indi

“Then what the devil are you doing in

“What are you doing here?” I blurted.
We stared at each other like two grass
fed calves in the s'tarligh*, arid I edged a
foot or two away from the gun. Just
then I heard the patter of girlish feet
on the gravel behind me. and. turning
my head, saw one of the plain sisters
hurrying toward us. and almost at the
same second the reddish-gold head of the
“beauty,” the head of the girl who had
been teaching me Dutch, passed from a
patch of shadow into the streak of star
light, where the hairy young giant was
standing fondling his gun. I sow her

the giant to grin as if half his head
ached to port company with the other

said, “I want you both to make a prom

pver parted witn.
The hairy individual rested his gun
against a tree, stepped forward, and
lifting his slouch hat to the plain girl,
said, " for your sake. I promise.”
I lifted my helmet to fhe “beauty” and
said something similar. A few' minutes
later, as I was buckling my girths, I
heard him galloping off southward to join

the saddle, the plain sister slipped away,
and the “beauty” lifted her hand in

Tlie Chinese PoMofflee.
From the London Express.
This is an attractive title, fully justified
by the fact that there Is no G. P. O. in
China! We Westerners are so much ac
customed to the rat-tat of the postman,
and the constant rounds of rhe blue-liv
eried figure. “On Her Majesty’s Service,"
that we find it hard to realize that no
such institution exists in such a highly
civilized country as China. Enterprising
mandarins may. and sometimes do, offer
prizes for essays on “How to Establish
a Chinese Imperial Pos4oftice,” but fur
ther than this the matter has not gon^.
When a Chinaman wishes to post a let
ter o-r a parcel, he does not drop it into
a slit in tho wall surmounted by a ca
balistic V. R. He carries i to a “letter
shop,” opens it, and displays its contents
to tbe shop keeper, so that they may be
valued This done, the package is re
fastened. and the shop keeper, putting
upon it his “chop,” or seal, undertakes
the task of forwarding It to the addres
see. In process of time the packed ar
rives at its destination, and If the “chop”
is broken the keeper of the letter shop
has to pay damages. This, to tell the
fruh, he generally does w’ith on admira
ble promptitude that sets an example to
our own leisurely department.
This, system of private enterprise pro
vides notb'ng of the nature of a penny

mission of letters and parcels is regulated
by two circumstances: (1) The money
