NAMLNG A CHINESE HEIR
AN DsTEBESTINO SERVTCE IN MOTT-ST.
WHAT THE CRBBMONY IS UrE-SOME OF THOSE
For th* laat few weeka there ha* beon an nnusuai
number of aoclal tfair* ln arlstocratie Chlnese clrclcs.
FortnnatelY for the dwellers ln Mott-st. tbe season
of Lent in w> way affecta their festlvltlea. Tbe
brMlant sertes of receptlons, " eonversatlons" and
btgh teas, wlitoh have been the talk of the soclal
worul In that part of the town reoently, reaehed Rs
eUmaz yesterday on the oceaslon of a baptism, at
?Meh tbe moat promlnent peoplo of lower Mott-st
were preeent. A few years ago Hl Kee came to
Amerlea to make hla fortune, and atarted out ln
Uf* wlth a modest littlo ahop, where tho prlnclpal
tbtags for aale were eugar cane, Chlnese eaadtes and
gew gaws. He prospared sufllolently to marry a
young woman, two years ago, who enjoys the dls
ttnctlon of havlng been born ln 8an Franclseo.
Mr. aad Mrs. Ht Ree yesterday were the prondest
eouple among the llttle eolony from the Orlent. To
the Chlnese the baptism of a chlld ls no less an oc?
easlon for eongratulatlons, good-wbhes and offerlngs
of prals* than to those of falrer sklns and shorter
halr. The parUcular eauso tor gratlflcatlon and
pardonabls prlde on thls oceaslon was tbe fact that
th* ehlM was a boy, for a son and aa helr la more
to a Chlnaman than a whole famlly of glrls. Tho
baptism took plaoe at th* home of Mr. and Mrs. Kee,
No. 4*1-8 Mott-afc It waa b&rdly a baptism, for
th* aprlnkllng of watcr playa no part whatever ln
the beatowlng of a name upon a Chlnaman's son.
There are many polnta of dlllerence between a
Chlneae and a ChrteUan baptism. The hour 6et down
yesterday for affl-lng to the helr of Hl Kee and hls
wlfe So Kee a name by whlch he should from tbat tlme
be known waa 3 o'elock. No gueats were admltted to
the room where the ceremony was to take place untll
prompUy on the stroke of the hour. At that tlme tho
other rooma were flllad wlth the guesta, aUtely and
solemn-looking, sHent and bowing. For onee tho swlft
wag of their tongues had oeased. When the door of
tb* front room was thrown open by Wln So, thlrd
prtest to tbe mlghty Joss, godfather to the tjetr and
offlclator at the servlces, those present fell into llne
and, wlth gravlty and dlgnlty, marehed two by two
into the outer rooma. At the head ot the llne of
men (the men precede the women), walked Stet Sun,
the well-known tea lmporter, who was to be godfather
to the young helr, the offlciatlng pricst alwaye belng a
formal godfather to as many chlldren aa may be named
by hlm. The flve ladlea present as guesta oamo
dtrectlt behlnd the men. led by Mrs. Kee, her
assutned serlousness of expresslon scareely hldlng the
pleasure and prlde on her dellcately featured face
and her narrow, shlnlng eyes.
4>n a bed, spread wlth a apotless eoverlng of whlte,
lay the chlld, the ttnlest, most fraglle blt of a bundle
of gaudy sllh and ollve-Unted cheeks. About his
neck himg a strlng of gold beads, there was a band
of gold about hls dlmtnutlv* head, gold bracelcts en
etrcled hls smaU wrtsts, whlle two tvory rlnga wlth
gold fastenlngs were clasped around hls ankles.
beneath whlch were beauUfully embroldered shoes.
whlch seemed to be no larger than a man'a thumb.
The gueats walked ln sllence before the bed. tho
young helr bllnklng up at them wlth aU the wlsdom
of Confnclus ln hla far*. when the last eouple had
flled past the bed they gathered about
the centre of the room and Wln So,
the offlciatlng prtest, ptched up the bundle
of atlk aod earrled It to a place before the gueste. The
mother stepped forth and took the bundle ln her
arms, whlle aU those present bowed low. As yet no
word' had been spokea by any one.
Then the prtest bowed almost to the
ground three ttmes, hls face getttng longer and longer
nntll he let out a strlng of Chlnese words, flrst to
the fathor and then to the mother. Thia was to ask
them If they both wtahed their helr to be named Mon
Kee Slng. Both of them nodded assent to thls. The
pilest agaln took tbe chlld and bowing three tlrnes
itiore, wlth hlm In hla arms, pronounced hls
ijarre. Mon Ree Slng thus became hls name.
There had been stotloned ln the room three Chlnese
muslclana and aa the last words fell from the Pjlesre
mouth a sudden nolae of a acreechlng, one-sirlnp.<i
slolln and two pterclng wlnd InstrumenU broke out.
Thls laated only a raoment, however. and there "fas
no Chlnese drutn. thls belng us*d espeolally at runerals.
When the lildeous muslc had atopped, all fell to cbat
terlng llke mad around the father and mother. There
followed a dRiner whlch lasted for two hours. Tho
whole ceremony, tncludlng the " name-fcast," bj It
ls oalled, requlrwl a trlfie over three bours. Among
the representatlve Chlnese people were Mr. and Mrs.
Yuet blng, Mr. and Mrs. Tuu fiung Suitg. Mr. and

hav* been developed wlll aoon be on an equai footlng
wlth the game In the North. The eentrea of actlvtty
have been Washlngton, Baltlmor* and WUmlngton.
The ellmatlc condltlons most favorabl* for lawn tennls
exlst ln Washlngton, and much of the popularlty
galned by the game at th* Capital la ettrfbuted to Its

The Country Club of Maryland, sltuated on the
Bladenkburg road, three or four mlles from Washlng?
ton, Is the cradle ln whloh the game of that clty
has been fostered. Such pfayers aa W. V. B. Beny.
Oaear Woodward, C. L. MoOawlby. John Pope, R. B.
Goodfellow, John Davldson, W. F. Metealfe and Dr.
J. L. Wortman have been developed. At BalUmore
ttte welfare of the game has been looked after by the
BalUmore Crlcket CJub aad the Towson Club. ot Tow
aon, a saburb of the clty. The Crlcket Club, oiiglnally
formed tn the tntaresta of crlcket, baa, aa lawn tennls
beeame known, gradually found enough lovers of
tennls among It* member* to beoeme a tennls elub.
Among the member* oonspleuoua for their sklll may
be named A H. R Poat. the holder of the champion
ahlp of the Southern Lawn Tennls Asaoclation; W. J.
BelL A D. Atklnsoa, 8. Taggart Steole, H. M. Brown.

The elub has reoently ereeted an extwraiely hand

It is not easy to flnd a black fabric
suitable for a clergyman's dress and
yet difFerent from what has usually been
worn. Black cloth grows tiresome,
Worsted8 quickly wear shiney, Tricots
are good, but ratker elumsy; we have
them all, and, besides, a new cloth that
we call " Clergymere" and which we
expect will beeome a favorite.
The fit of ourclerical gannents seems
as near perfect as possible, and the
trimming and making correspond with
the general excellence of the cloths
Pricesrange from $17 to $32 forsuits.
