"Have you eaten?" (die lao fan
nlnn may you?) is as common a
greeting among tlio Cliiiiaineii as
our "How do "you do?" In their
onininii lie who is able to cat is
sincly well, happy and all right in
every lcspecl. Ealing is the most
common subject of conversation
turning them. "How many meals a
day have you?" "How many bowls
of rice do you eat in a day?" In
answer to such questions the celes
tials always name a linger number
of meals t'lian they really have, and
when, with their hands Uiey show
you the si.o of their bowls, you
must understand that they usually
hyperbolize. They often address
iorciirners such duestions as these:
"Have you rice in your country?"
"How many meals :t day do your
countrymen eat?" It is a common
opinion among Chinamen that for
eigners come lo China because they
have nothing, or not enough, to cat.
Chinamen hold that the stomach is
the souice of intellectual life, and,
Ihorefoic, the more portly a man is
the wiser he must be. In their
language the sentence, "lie eats
much," is synonymous with "He is
a wise man." As the rich cat far
nioi e animal fooiVthan the poor, who
subsist chielly on -vegetables, so the
phrase, "Che jou dc," meaning
thoe feeding upon meat, is applied
to wise, happy and ilistinguisneu
men, while "Che main dc," applied
lo those feeding on coin, signifies a
class of men unhappy, ignorant and
oppressed by fate. The Chinese
vegetarian's highest Ideal of life is
to become a meat eater. To tre.it a
guest or a -visitor to a meal at any
time of the day is considered as a
mailc of refined politeness. China
men eating is the most familiar
scene, and it can be witnessed in
the stieets and yaids, as well as in
the eating houses, hotels and private
Only Chinamen who hayc families
tiike their meals at home; the rest
eat at hotels. Usually they have
two substantial meals a day, in the
morning, an hour after they get up,
and between 0 and 4 o'clock in the
afternoon. Well-to-do Chinamen
have three or four meals a day. The
head of the family gets the best
article of food. Often only the
father cats meat, while the rest of
the family must be satislied with
lice. In olden times the children,
although they might be mariied,
wcic not allowed to sit, eat or talk
while their father ate; they served
him as servants. Nowadays, even
in the Cclostial Empire, such vener
ation for age is gone ; it is observed
only as a meaningless ceremony in
the presence of guests.
Poor families usually get their
meals from street venders. These
carry provisions along with a small
stove on a wheel-borrow." Well-to-
do families usually employ cooks.
tho female roles. It Is considered)
however,, bad taste lo pay much at
tention lo tho play.
I must say that tho Chinese din
ners arc very tiresome. No topic of
general interest is ever discussed at
them. A gastronomist who knows
everything about various ailicles of
food commands the most attention.
Everybody smokes during the din
ner. "When the Celestials feel about
satisfied they amuso each other with
homespun puns or childish pranks,
such as guessing whether one of the
"eight sages" has an odd or an even
number of watermelon seeds. The
dinner is crowned by a stoiy or
legend narrated by home more or
less known orator. fS. F. Bulletin.
On the subject, of (he Alaska

the Post says: A now point lias
been laised in connection with the
seizure by a United States revenue
cutter of two Canadian vessels. One
is said to have been captured G
miles and the second 120 miles fiom
the nearest land. The points made
are: Did Russia have the right to
convey lo the United States, as it
did by the terms ol its treaty in
connection with the sale of Alaska,
the greater part of Uehring stiait?
Will any foicign Government iccog
nizc such a light under international
law? If the United Slates has the
right to prohibit British fishermen
from taking fur seals 120 miles from
land, has not the United States the
same riiiht to prohibit British or
Norwegian whalers within the same
seas? Our treaty rights in the
Behring sea have never been tested.
It is possible that the seizure of
these two Canadian vessels by our
revenue cutter may bring these
rights into dispute.
The North German Gazette re
iterates that Germany has no interest
whatever in Bulgaiia. It says it is
not worth while to keep a single
German soldier under arms on ac
count of Bulgaria. The necessity
for German armaments is due to
France. "Every French, news
paper," the Gazette says, "proves
that France is making rapid prepara

rifices arc being made to raise the

here, anil the cooks get their clegioe
anil diploma like men of science'. A
learned Chinese cook can picparc
pork and mutton in fifty different
styles. All cooks here pocket a
certain percentage on the provisions
hoy buy for their masters.
Tht! Cclestjals use no table-cloth,
napkins, knives, forks, spoons,
dishe-, plates or glass ware. The
Kuiopcan style of eating with
knives and forks they criticise as
being rather work than pleasure.
They do not use a white table cloth,
because it reminds thorn of deep
mourning. Instead of napkins they
use packages of soft paper, w Inch
servo them for handkerchiefs. 'Lhey
throw away the sheets of paper after
they have once been used, and
scorn Europeans for using the same
handkerchief several times. Since
1820, when the Chinese thoroughly
mado the acquaintance of Europeans,
the napkin has come jpto use among
tliein, paiticularly in Canton, but
they have modified its use. In a
corner ol the napkin they make a
hole and hung it fiom a button on a
(servant's dress. Tho servant with
the napkin goes froih one guest to
another, and thus a score of Celes
tials may use the saino napkin.
Kncli guest has a saucer, a pair of
sticks (kusvytzi), a package of paper
and a minute cup with salt sauce.
Neither sticks nor saucer are
chanced during the dinner. Warm
tea and warm whiskey arc served
many times during tho dinner.
When a Chinaman gives a formal
dinner he invites hjs guests cither
pcisonallyorby cards. Those wliono
cept tho invitation inform the host
and send him money, provisions and
presents, at. the cost of from half a
dollar to hundreds of dollars. Tho
money and presents aro entered in
a special book, which is carefully
preserved for reforeiioo. On the
