Alt Bnalnni and Family Matter Directly Controlled by This I'nreason. ' Inflarnre, Which Makes Drote f Its Slavish Devotees. No raoe in tbe wide world is more Controlled by superstitious notions than the Chinese. They enter into eveiy act of a Chinaman's life, and their influence la moro lasting than that of hia re llgion. He oannot move hand or foot Without their agency, and from tbe earliest moment of his life down to the last detail in connootion with his bnrial their power and influence are the guiding motives of bis acta. All business and family matters are directly controlled by snpcrEtitions sentiments, both rich and poor, young and old, being slaves to tbeir force. To the average Chinaman hit religion ia a mere negative factor in his mode cf life, to be followed or disregarded at trill, but no true son of Han dares to Mi otherwise than in sooordance with (be atriot precepts of those splritnal powers which directly control hia life. There are some amusing superstitions connected with Chinese entertainments. A dinner party is an ordeal which once experienced is never forgotten. It consists of from 40 to CO distinct courses and oooupies tbe greater portion of a day. Daring the whole of these repasts and notwithstanding the endless variety ef dishes served the invited gnest retain, the saino pbvte throughout. The explanation of this strange custom is an Old proverb, which has now beoome a superstition, that "he who changes the plates kills the housewife." ! Chinese proverbs explain several of the superstitious notions with regard tc women. It is considered unlucky for a woman to mix with the builders of 'boose or other edifice during its erec tion, and to avoid any possibility of one straying into the premises all approaches are oarefully guarded by watchmen, ana a ienoe is ereotea aroana the pro posed building is soon as its found tioni are laid. The explanation of this la the saying, "Women mix ill with wood, and death Uvea la the house over whose fouuda tions a woman has walked. " There ia a similar horror of the fair aex interfer- , lng with any publio matter of national interest or in any business transactions where men are oonoerned. "Women tie knots, " aaya the Chinese proverb. "Let . them remain at home." No funeral can take place until as trologers and professional fortune tellen nave been consulted. These unsorupu-oua diviners decide the plaoe of baiiaL . and in the event of disagreement no Snal interment can take place. Tbia ao counts for the number of nnburied oof- floa which are seen about the oountry districts in China, Sometimes the ooffln - la temporarily deposited in a temple or DEADWOOD, S. D. J.

VERPLAST. men: "James Lowell and I were very angry with Webstar for staying in old Tyler's cabinet, and as be was to speak in Faneuil hall on the evening of the 80th of September, 1848, we determined to go in (from tbe Harvard Law school) and boot at him and show him that he had inourred our displeasure. There were 8,000 people there, and we felt sure that they would hoot with na, young as we were. "But we reckoned without our host. Mr. Webster, beautifully dressed, stepped forward. His great eyes looked, aa I shall always think, straight at me. I pulled off my hat; James pulled off his. We both became aa cold as ioe ard as respectful as Indian pooliea, I aaw James turn pale; lie said I was livid. And when the great creature began that most beautiful exordium, our scorn turned to deepest admiration, from an abject contempt to belief and approbation." - Hit Hair la Danarer. A young artist whose pipe, eyeglasses and luxuriant blond hair have made him well known in town vent to a garden party not so much tor social amusement as for penoil studies of high life- He wore a tall hat, frock coat and lavender trousers and carried a sketching block a yard square. At the party his epigrams, paradoxes and fiendish silvery laugh overwhelmed, as he intended, all tbe girls in sight or hearing, but he got through with his social duties aa speedily as might be, then went and sat down on a distant fence. Soon pencil studies lay all around him on tbe grass. Suddenly he felt a gentle tug at his back hair. He thought, "That is some fresh Aleo trying to guy me, " and he did not look up The gentle tugging ceased, began again, became much stronger, and then he felt something wet, soft, slimy, on his neck. With a dreadful oath he leaped from the fence and looked behind him. Back there was a smart trap, in which sat two girls and a young man laughing. The horses were olose to the fence, snd it was one of these that had commenced browsing on the artist's profuse locks. Explanations followed and apologies. "All flesh, "the artist said, "ia grass, but not sll hair. " Philadelphia Record. ' Same Extraordinary Mother. Probably' the youngest grandmother of whom we have record was a Lady Child of Sbropf hire, England She had married at 19 years of age and had a child before her thirteenth year was completed. Thia child in turn married while still very young, with the result that Lady Child was a grandmother at IT. The moat extraordinary cases of motherhood were those of Mrs. Honey-wood of Charing, in Kent, and Lady Temple of Stow. When the former died, on Hay 10, 1890, aged M, she counted ber descendants IS children, 114 grandchildren, 338 great-grandchildren and 9 great-great-grandchildren. The other case was even more remarkable Lady Temple, who died in 1050, bad give birth to 4 sons and 9 daughters and lived to see more than, 700 descendants. Twl mt olleel Water.
