A Dance of Priests and a It ais Flesh
From the Hondon Exnresa.
Though 1 was not lucky enough to reach
Addis Adaha In time for Christmas. I
hoard full details of the festivities from
those who were. The most Interesting
feature seems to have been the dance
of priests in the presence of the Emperor.
The vestments wars very gorgeous, In
cluding yellow and purple and brocaded
velvets richly embroidered, and green or
yellow silk coats. All the moat magnifi
cent crutches were brought out. Incense
win swung from copper censers, and
gra - ful crosses of pierced mctel work
Perhaps the most striking part of the
spectacle was the forest or colored um
br* Has green, blue, red, purple and
hla- k which the priests pul up more a*
a pan of a ceremonial display than to
k*-ep off the tropical sun
The Emperor, tha two archbishops and
Tapi. Harrlcg*an were alone seated while
the dance was In progress This dance
wa- really more deserving of the name
than *i*e gymnastic exercise which I wit
nessed at morning aarvlca at Trinity
Church. Addis Abaha It was quiet snd

When Menrlek had had enough of the
performance he sent word to the priests
nnd bade them stop, much as I remember

went on preaching too long bef*re him
In a llulgarlan church. The priests lead

gorgeously adorned mute to the lunquet*
Ing hall In tha nature.
Them were two dinners that day for
r iays of five thousand people. Oxen are
kill'd outside and brought In with the
srill quivering. There are no tables,
but fhe feaster* squat about on the floor
In groups The servants hold out a Joint
of raw mr it to each grouts, whereupon
everybody draws hla sword or dagger and
sit -e* off a piece, exhibit mg himself as
an expert and amaalngly rapid carver.
The easing of the raw meat Is done very
daintily. The whole place la held In tha
hand and raised to the mouth, when the
sword or dogger Is used to slice off a
mouthful quite close to the Up* As thla
