The !*u eaeion to the Dragon Throne
of China is hereditary, but U doc* not,
however, ies end to any particular son
of the r< igning j Jmp ror. The choice
usually la;is on ho oldest son, but the
Emperor is suppled to carefully watch
and jnuge the abilities of his different
sore and choose for the succession that
one whinii would make the best Emperor I
and give his people the wisest and most j
peaceful rule. Should the family, how
ever, die without making any selection,
the princes of the family, being the
brother* or uncles of the Emperor just
deceased, meet together, and, from the
genera tAoti succeeding that of the lute
Emperor, select some on© of the family
co occupy the throne. For those m^mbeis
of the family who are not so fortunate
ua to be selected for the succession great
ducal palaces are selected, and assigned
to them for royal residences. The for
bidden ci:y in the heart of the city of
Pekin, Is of course, the residence of the
Emperor himself, and to this city Is
brought the member of the family who Is
•elected as the heir apparent. But out
side of the forbidden city, Pekin is dotted
with the great park ctr compound that
surround these royal ducal palaces. The
grounds usually range from two to five
acres in area, and tire surrounded by high
brick walls of great strength, culling them
off completely from the sound and smells
of the city outside.
No ll*r* ditary Nobility.
The Chinese linve always been opposed
to nny ’hereditary nobillity, and while
these ducal palaces are assign**! as im
perial residences to sons of the reigning
monarch, it is always with the provision
that when the family of the occupant
has, by the operation of Chinese law
(which provide* that lmj>erlal descendants
lose one degree m rank with each genera
tion until the third), l>n re
duced to the level of th© common people,
the palaces then revert to the crown for
reassignment to sons of the then reign
ing monarch. It is on account of this
peculiar latfr that the palaces
of Pekin are occupied by an
ever changing population, first princes
of the blood. then their children
and grandchildren In succession after
them, then the vacation of the palace and
Its reassignment again to the princes of
the reigning family.
The fourth generation from the royal
family have no official title or rank, still
all persons of royal descent, to the re
motest generation, nre allowed to wear the
yellow girdle indicative of their royal de
acon. These yellow girdle men, or Huang
Daizas, nre o-ne of the features of Pekin.
Many of them have inherited wealth from
thoir royal ancestors, and are prominent
men In their community. But others have
fared differently with fortune. Some hang
around the imperial officers seeking the
humblest employment; others are the
scribes and teachers, and even domestic
servant* may be found wearing the yellow
Ducal ralocei for Our Envoys.
Tho treaty which closed the French and
English war in 18(10 first granted to the
Powers the right to maintain their em
bassies in the Chinese Capital. In the
early days, before the building of the rail
road from Tian Ttdn to Pekin, the line
of travel was up the river to Tung Chow',
and thane© Into tne capital through the
east one of tho southern gates of the city.
Entering Pekin through thio gate, the
Forbidden City, with its imperial palaces,
lay to the west, and it wai but natural
that the first envoys should turn up the
first street leading towards tho palaces.
It so happen# that this street had been for
centuries the quarter in which lodged the
envoys from the tribute-paying neighbors
of the Chinese empire, Corea ns, Mongols.
Tibetan* and Indo-Chinese., and (he street
which is known among the foreigners as
Legs Hon- street is called by the Chinee*
“the street of tribute nation*” The fact
that the foreigners established themselves
In this quarter hue in a large measure in
fluenced the Chinese in their treatment of
them, and while a mistake was made in
thia respect, still the early ambassadors
chose wisely in selecting for their resi
dences the handsomest of the then unoc
cupied paj.ices belonging to the crown.
Tile Fine Lcgntion.
The English selected a large palace
which lay along the west side of a canal
that drains the lakes within the Forbid
den City and lies just north of Legation
street. The quaintness and oriental mag
nificence of these ducal palaces lias been
largely preserved by the legations that
have occupied them. The massive en
trances stand unchanged; the open pavil
ions with their lacquered pi liars and rich
carvings are used as ballrooms. The
courts and arbors and walks, with their
rockeries and terraces, still stand; but the
details of the dwelling houses have been
changed to suit tlie requirements of mod
ern comfort, and there Is little comparison
between the severely simple furnishings
of the former Chinese occupants and the
luxuriously furnished salons of the mod
ern ambassadors. Class window* and tight
doors have replaced the old Chinese fret
work and pap*r windows, while chimneys
have been built in every available cor
ner. The winters in Pekin are cold, and
where the Chinese find comfort in wearing
additional suits of clothes, tho white man
insists on his fires to k* ep him warm, and
the many chimneys built In the*© old
palaces have so disturbed the spirit* of
their former occupants that they have
caused more and icussion than affaire of

FISHING WITH BIRDS.
The Chinamun T***f Cormorant* to
Catch Hi* Prey.
In this country the fisherman is a man
who ueea hook and line or the net in fol
lowing his profession and folks would
stare with wonder to see him start off
with a flock of birds to help in catching
ffsh. Yet this is done in China. There
the Chinaman may be seen in his sam
pan surrounded by cormorants which
have been trained to dash into the water
at his order, seize the lish andi bring them
t<> -the boat. Should a comorant capture
a fish too large for it to carry alone, one
of its companions will go to its assistance
and together they will bring it in.
If the Chinamun wishes to catch tur
tles he will do bo with the aid of a suck
ing-fish or remora. This fish has on top
of its head a long disc or sucker by
which Ift attaches itself beneath moving
objects such as sharks, whales, and the
bottoms of ships rather than make the
effort necessary to independent movement.
The fisherman fastens the remora to a
long cord tied *to a brass ring about its
tall and when he reaches tho turtle
ground puts R overboard, faking care to
keep it from the bottom of the boat.
When a turtle passes near the remora
darts beneath him and fastens to his
shell. Struggle as ho will tho turtle can
not loosen the grip of the sucker and
tli© Chinaman has only to haul in on the
line, bring the turtle up to the boat and
take him aboard.
0\ GROWING OLD.
The Lesson NVomon Have Learned.
Young Old Nlon.
Frederick Stanley Root in the New York
When is a man okl? Women used to be
old. They are so no longer. Golf di?pels
that Illusion. Women nowadays simply go
ahead and do the very things their daugh
ters are doing. They keep young because
it is a jvart of the philosophy of our time
to keep young. I think it la Humboldt
who dlecovered some Indians of a remote
tribe whose environment wus so favorable
that faces lined with seams were very
raie, and Humboldt could not for the lito
of him determine which was father and
which was sou. One ret alls this observa-
I tian of tho naturalist when meeting nil
athletic matron in company with her
daughters. Particularly so when the
striking sentiment of a writer in the Lon
don Spectator has controlled the life. “Age
is a fcieve which strain* away either the
dregs, and leaves behind all that Is finest,
or strains away the finest elements and
leave* only the dregs." The se-ret of eter
nal youth it* neither lymph nor elixir of
the Browti-Sequaid ouler. It is charac
ter, plus fresh air und sui shine, plus Del
aartean principles of physical expression.
Women have Uuned these secrete.
But when i.*> u man old? Ah, that de
pends. I had a friend who was rejected
tui a candidate for a v>< ant pulpit at

triarchal b'uird fell upon his breast and
killed his chance;*. On assuming command

he other hand I have known college men,
ten yt-ars out, who were “old as the ever
lasting hills.” They slaved on a farm;
.-.laved in college to make both end# meet;
slaved to g< t a professional grip; ar.d will
be slaves of the routine to the end. They
wf-re born aged, and youth is the hostage
given to hard-won success.
1 ray, then, the answer to my question
HepencLs on the ixxint of view. To the
boy of ten tho man of thirty Is contem
poraneous with grandfathers. To the
man of seventy that age is the vestibule
of achievement. One looks up the peak
of years; the other looks down. Some
! where between the two angles of vision
the truth lies. But of one thing we may
be certain—more men lay themselves
! aside than are laid aside by -the onward
! sweep of events. The man of seventy is
| but a pioneer, and the man of seventy
i thousand years is aiso but n pioneer
! breaking his way through the forests of
j truth “In tho sounding labor-house vast.”
Ago cannot wither the force of an in
domitable and eager spirit. Men who are
(old by the calendar may still be at the
forefront of tho world’s battle, only they
must not be antediluvian men, lamenting
the downward tendency of thing*? and ex
tolling their own youth as the only gol
den age. He who invariably etkß “what
is gCKng on?” can hardly be thought of
as getting on! The patriarch who swings
his hat and dances for joy when the ring
ing of the college bell anwunces the vic
tory of his alma mater crew will ever
laugh you to scorn when you tell him
he Is old. It is a mistake to suppose
that youth, mooning early years, is the
only period of achievement, of fresh en
deavor of original undertaking. Sir Henry
Spelman did not begin the study of sci
ence until between fifry and sixty. Frank
lin was flfty before he entered on the
study on natural philosophy. It Is large
ly our own fault if we allow the world to
drift by and leave us -to the pity of those
who will say, “Poor man! he belong?* to
: former generation. The present ex
ceeds his com prehension.’’
In conversation some time ago with a
woman wll advanced, a lecturer upon
the principles of what some peorde are
pleased to te in the “menfal-sugges ion
fad,” my companion calmly announced
her Intention to live just as long as she
cared to live. When weary of existence
sue would shuffle off the mortal coil, and
not bef re. Her remark reminded me of
quaint old John Asgiil, who, I believe,
wrote a book In (he last century, in wh ch
he declared that death was simply the
(©suit of a perverse habit which he in
tended to avoid, and thus “play a trump
on t*~.e dt sr.ro, er, and show himself a
match for :he devil!” There may be some
Intellectual "quackery” in this, and prob
ably is. But certain phases of s?b r
scientific teaching would se m to support

really unn® e sary happenings. The late
Dr. Hammond, perhaps not a first-late
authority, hut a man of clever under

lar magazine that tills human machine
which we call the body might be eo de
velrped and perfected as to run on eter

litth bock on "The Possibility of Net
Dying." in which the idea broached by
Dr. Hammond is elahoi;ed with much
w. alth of illustration and ingenuity of
reasoning Moral equilibrium is looked
upon as the key to the situation., and
with considerable plausibility. I notice
that people who are quite free from ever
lasting fretting and fuming, the bane of
many households, are infinitely more
youthful at sixty than people who run
up stairs and dawn searching for worries
in every closet.
This whole question of getting on. in
years is virtually a question of habit and
temper of mind. The man. who is forever
anxious to appear young gives himself
away badly. He deceives nobody by his
forced jauntiness of dress and behavior.
Let him cease fussing and live on with
plain calmness and good-humored philos

revivifying influences, and years wdll not
count. Let him go ahead and do every
thing as if he expected to live a thousand

CONGRESS AND THE CENSUS.
HOW THE RETI'RSt WILL AFFECT
Cities to Gain Representation at the
Expense of the Hnral DUtrkla.
Hearing of This Retail I poll the
Strength of Political Parties—Psob
al.le Basin of Representation—Rel
ative Growth of States.
From the New York Evening: Font.
Washington, Axis. 21.—One result of the
forthcoming reapporUor.m.tnt of congress
ional districts which has been revealed
by tlie announcement of the population
of Greater New Ycrk is that the cities
are going to gain greatly at the expense
of the rural dstiicts. The population of
New Yoik city is slightly above 3,400 010.
This would give it, upon a basis of 20),-
OOC pe sens to a congressional district,
seventeen represtn atives la the rational
House of Represcntati'. es. It now lias,
wi h all of Long Island included, fifteen
olit'li ts, and a part cf the sixteenth, or
a! out fifteen districts ''net,” were the
municipal lines made to conform with the
congressional. This Is on the basis of 373,-
901 persons to a district. If New York on
the present ratio of representation has
fifteen districts, and by a greatly In
ertoeed ratio would have seventeen, it Is
evident that the rural regions will have
a relatively smaller representation.
Chicago's returns tell the some story. It
now has from four and a half to five dis
tricts ' net, ’ or seven district with out
lying towns Included. According to the
present census, unofficial returns, the city
has about 1.700,000 pe pie, which would en
tice it on ihe new ratio proposed to eight
and a half districts instead. The result
relatively speaking would be the same
whatever the ratio tok n; 200,000 is here
used for its convenience in reckoning ar.d
because it doubtless approximates the lig
ur rtai wll actually te choitn.
Nor is it probable that this showing of
New York and Chicago is unlike that cf
the o he' great cities of "the country.'
They are all growing so much faster th n
h* rural regions that in the cu.ting up
of the state into congressional and strict*
they are sure to get a grea ly increased
proportion of the result. Th S’ will have
a decided bear ng upon tho strength of
political partks. The great cities, more
than the country, tend to be Democratic,
although Philadelphia and Cleveland are
notable exception* in the North, and St.
Louis in the South. The larger foreign
vale in the cities, and the further fact
that Republican state legislatures so of
ten exercise a distasteful control over
city governments, contribute to this re
sult. Since the Republicans find it now
very hard to carry the House of Repre
sentatives with the solid South and the.
large cities of the North aga nst them,
it is obvious that their task will be con
siderably increased when the representa
tion of the cities i3 made still greater.
Hence this feature of the census returns
is regarded in political circles here with
the greatest interest.
Any discussion of the relativa growth
of the several states and its effect upon
representation is now profitless, with the
actual returns so near at hund. It is gen
erally assumed, however, that the Wist
has continued to grow' faster than the
East, and the North slightly faster than
the South, although the Influx of cotton
manufacturing into the South mey pre
vent a rep® itlon of past experiences. Be
tween 3870 and I£9) the increase in popu
lation throughout the country was about
24 per cent.; the rate in the North Atlan
tic s c ion was 20 per cent.; in the South
Atlantic (from Delaware to Florida), 16
per cent; in the North central (Ohio to
Kansas3, 29 per cent.; in the South cen
tral (Kentucky to Texas), 23 p r cent.;
while the far West increased 71 per cent.
Where po ula'ion to follow these gneral
llr.es again, the now apportionment would
be more favorable to the Republicans
than before, except in so far as the trans
fer of strength from the rural regions to
the gr at cid s operated against them.
But it is a narrow view of these great
tendencies of American growth to consider
them in the light of' party advantage.
There are, to tie sure, certain social and
economic revelations, of whleh perhaps
parly divisions furnish some sign* that
are worthy of atudy. The cities, for ex
ample, regardless of their party prefer
ences, are much more mercurial in their
opinions than the country districts. In
any great tidal wave they move further
one way or the other; this is jprobably
due to their quicker social life anc the
greater Influence of the independent press.
In contrasting election returns in 1892 with
those of 1896, it seems as if many of the
rural regions were unaware of the trans
formation that had come over the Demo
cratic party, while in the cities the over
turn was tremendous. Indiana is a state
without any city of the first rank, and
the two parties pull there very evenly,
without much regard to the issues for
which they stand. In New York city,
Chicago, and Boston, on the other hand,
the revulsions of party feeling are very
great, as was shown in 1886. The in
n-easing strength of the city representa
tion in the House of Representatives is
thus likely to infuse an element of great
uncertainty into the congressional cam
paigns of the future. It was Congressman
Cannon’s reply the other day, when asked
concerning the political prospects of Illi
nois: "Tell me what Cook county is going
Little thought has yet been given to the
new apportionment. It. is generally taken
for granted that the ratio will be fixed
at about 200,000, which is in round num
bers six times the ratio adopted after
our first census. With a total popula
tion of 75,000,000 (exclusive of territories)
that ratio would fill 373 congressional
seats, to say nothing of the increase by
the admission of new states. There are
now 357 seats in the House, the appor
tionment of 1980 providing for 356, and
Utah supplying the remaining one. While
theoretically almost every one would
agree that the House is plenty large
enough now, and that its membership
should not be increased even from 357 to
375, the chnnces of Congress doing less
for itself than that are very small. Ten
years ago such a ratio was selected as
would leave Vermont, which had increas
ed in population but four one-hundredths
of 1 per cent., in possession of what
would entitle It to two districts. Nevada
had declined in population, but ns it had
but one district before no loss was pos
sible. In this way all the changes in the
quotas of states were in the direction of
increases. This is much less embarrass
ing to members of the House than when
the slow-going states are cut down in rep
resentation, as has sometimes been done,
in which caso two sitting members often
have to scramble for the same district.
Sometimes the local gerrymander, how
ever, produces this perplexity.
Whether a 200,000 ratio would leave
every state now having two representa
tives or more with less than Its present
quota cannot be de'eimined until the
figures are all In. Massachusetts. If it
held the same rale of growth that was
exhibited b tween 1880 ar.d 1886 (wh n the
