A TIGER OF THE LAW.
Never hurt Chi Hung Lang Rat down
to his cup of tea in a moro sorrowful
frnmo of mind, A something wrapped
hi yellow Bilk lay before him, which
bid fair to Rivo the hriivo mandarin a
headache. It was an ofllcial letter.
A weighty matter it was for Chi
Hnng Laug to bo or not to be, in fact.
In case ho succeeded in doing wiiat was
nsked of him ho would receive- tho sec
ond peacock feather and tho red button
for his cap, but if ho failed tho soles of
his feet would certainly becomo in
timately acquainted witJi (he b.unboo.
And thero were such beautiful, stnmg,
clnstio bamboos in the town hull for
such ptirpoj-es. He had tried every stick
witli Ills own hands on ono of his ill
fuii'ii in i f i i .
For Chi Hung Lang was tho highest
jndgo of tiio provinco and boro the titlo
of honor, "tiger of tho lawbook."
In criminal circles and among thoso
learned in tho law his iinuio was great
ly lespcctcd. He understood tho law fco
well and could expound it so minutely
that ho oneo succeeded by a brilliant
plea in having a 2-hour-old infant con
toured (o 18 years' imprisonment.
Thero was no ono in all tho laud with
a clear conscience, at least no one who
felt secure, for Uhi Hung Lang had ouco
declared that in his opinion every re
Sjjvetubln citizen ought to sit on the
criminal's bench at loast ouco during
his lifetime, atid ho was just tho mau
to put his theory into practice.
It cannot bo denied that Chi Hung
Lang, with his method of administering
justice, accomplished gieat results. If
any ono had tho least reason to fear tho
law, ho moved into another province.
This holved the tramp question at least.
If tho tiger of tho lawbook had not
occasionally instituted a practice l.iw
suit, tho judges of the land would have
had nothing to do butsmoko their opium
in undisturbed leisure.
At this timo tho prison of (lie prov
inco of Ycn-si-ling, over which Chi
Hung Laug ruled, had been without
an inmato for eight days. It was abso
lutely impossible to And a wrongdoer.
Tho beautiful prison, with its 832
cells, electric lights, Hogging machines
and tortnro chamber equipped with all
tho modern improvements, was empty
empty as a Chineso lieutenant's purso
on tho 20th of tho mouth.
This is tho renui that Chi Hnng
Lung's heart quaked and his feet tin
gled with misgivings:
Fivu years before this the above men
tioned model prison had been built by
tho son of heaven at an enormous cost,
and it had been mado so largo at tho ex
press wish of Chi Hung Lang. The vice
roy now announced that ho would in
spect tho prison in threo days and hoped
to find it comfortably well filled. Tho
writing cuded with tho ominous figures
"2C." Oil, how poor Chi Hung Lang's
feet burned ! It was just liko tho Mikado.
15ut whero was ho to get 8!12 Nauki
1'oohs without stealing them? It was
hardly to bo expected that any ono
would volunteer. Dut tho viceroy waut
od to seo tho Hogging machine and tho
hydraulic gallows in actual operation
daring his inspection. Hero the tcrriblo
number 25 appeared again. Oh, how
tho feet of tho tiger of tho lawbook
burned I Tlioro was no escape. An un
lawful net ho would not liavo commit
ted, and nt any rato thero was no timo
to manufacture several hundred com
plaints and try tho cases in tho usual
way. Oil, if only ho had moro timol
And Chi nung Lang rubbed his head
doubtfully. Ho had a very long head,
had Chi Hung Laug, tiger of the law
book. At this moment his pupil and favor
ite practitioner, Ka-cha-lo, entered tho
room with a now paper in his hand and
honAr in his face.
"Head, master," ho said.
It was a copy of a comio paper, Tho
Dragon Claw, which contained a ma
licious item ridiculing the largo feet of
Chi Hung Lang's wife.
Ka-cha-lo had expected his master to
fly into a passion aud.at least breathe,
out tiro and smoke or sonio exhibition
of tho kind.
Nothing of the seit took place. The
mighty man or law danced aiound tho
room in his glee until his cue upset all
thocandlus, evyng; "I am saved! I
shall fill my pii- nl I shall got my 832
piisonors!" Ka-cha-lo said in astonish
ill' lit, "Only ilia, I think the lespuusi
bio editor i.f Tho Dragon Claw. "
"younsr nun," n plied Chi Hung
Lnug, "what do you know about law?
How about his accomplices?"
"Cut do yon think ho has 832 of
thorn?" ventured Ka-eha-lo.
"Ho has in; many as I need, " was tho
Kn-chn In moro astonished than ever,
left tho loom, saying, "What a maul"
