TUESDAY EVENING, JAN. 20, 1880.
Hew Seme of the Mendicant Tribe in Lon Len Lon
eon Get Their Living.
We take the following from tlie Londen
A very curious tribe of beggars is that
whose members torture themselves, net out
of view and te excite sympathy when the
deed is done by exhibiting the results, but in
the sight of everybody who cheeses te leek
en, and just te draw contributions by the
oddity of the performance. This is one of the
eldest and most widespread of mendicant
tricks, only in ether days and in distant
lands the beggar tried and still tries te dig
nify the practice by attaching te it high
religious motive and meaning. Anybody
walking along the towing-path of the Isis,
between Felly bridge and Iffley, en any of
the summer days which idle Oxford devotes
te rowing matches during the uni
versity vacation, will notice in all
directions young mendicants Hinging
themselves headlong into the water,
clothes and all, for the sake of a few
coppers. Going round the public houses of
the same city he will observe abundance of
torture of stomach and nerve by extraordi
nary feats of drinking. A fellow will walk
into one of these taverns, when it is full,
and make an ener, which is seldom re
fused, te gulp down at a single draught a
pet of ale every ten minutes, for an hour
or even longer the pay being a shilling or
two and the ale often for the ale alone ;
and a second, who does net care for ale,
will undertake te deposit a pint of strong
spirits in his stomach, at the rate of a
glass every Ave minutes, at a similar price.
Moreover, all these swillers are prepared te
repeat the performance after sleeping a
couple of hours in a hayloft. There used
te be Oxford taverns each of which retain
ed one of these extraordinary beer and
spirit bibbers as a special attraction. Such
people invariably come te a premature eud
and often in form te attract public atten
tion, as when some unaccustomed per
formance in thejr special line slays them
en the spot. Akin te the drinking Log
gers are theso who gorge enormous
quantities of feed often raw and
occasionally of strange seit at a mo
ment's notice and for a stipulated sum.
Net long age a fellow of this kind was
maintained by the landlord of a wayside
tavern in Bucks shecrly en account of his
inordinate veracity, which drew customers
from all sides te witness it in action. This
deveuier would make nothing of eating a
dozen dinners in succession, and as fast as
they would be prepared and only for the
sake of the feed, which was paid for by the
neighbors. I have met with fellows who
made a point of eating a portion of every
meal taken in public raw, and one in par
ticular in the outskirts of Birmingham
an abominable scoundrel who used te
delight the low-lived brutes of his neigh
borhood by capping every gorging per
fermance with what he called chawing
up" a live fowl or rabbit.
The strangest of all these people, how
ever, are these who haunt the waterside
taverns of large seaports in order te as
tonish Jack by swallowing such "uncon
sidered trifles " as the shanks of clay
pipes, horn buttons, and even small nails
properly blunted. I have known a swal swal
lewer of this kind who, in seeking te out
do himself, actually "belted" a clasp
knife and lived te beast of the achieve
ment. Other mendicants make a living
by showing hew much pain they can in
ilict en themselves, or undergo at the
hands of ethers, without wincing. And a
great amount of ciuelty is perpetrated en
these wretches by the fellows whom they
seek te interest. One of this class of
beggar that I saw had the tips of his ears
seared away by frequent touches of the
tap-room poker heated rea-het ; another
would bare his calves and run half a
dozen pins into them te the heads ;
a thiid would strike his knuckles
with all his force against a wall ;
a fourth was given te suspend
ing himself in a halter by the chin for
minutes at a time, and there were
ethers who would bear te be half roasted,
doubled up into excruciating positions, or
te have nausseus drugs poured down their
threats. And -all this was done and suf
fered, and with an appearance of jollity
tee, for the sake of the drinks and the
coppers that were te fellow. I have even
met with a fellow in Lancashire who
was always ready te lay his head face
downwards en the read, and let the wheel
of a light cart run ever it for a small con
sideration. There was a spice of trickery
in the act, indeed, but still it is perilous
enough. He used te lay his skull between
two loose bricks or paving stones, and
thus escape the first shock of the
wheel and a geed deal of the pressure ;
and the head being an uncommonly thick
one, the rest mattered little. Still I have
seen that same head strapped up in all
directions in consequence of wounds re
ceived in the performance of its owner's
By far the most exceptional beggar I
ever encountered the only one, indeed,
claiming te be really wonderful is te be
seen as for eight or nine years past
about eleven miles from where I write. I
have heard of several such during the last
thirty-live years, as the Irish fasting man,
Bernard Cavanagh, as the Welsh fasting
girl, but never had the fortune te meet
any but her. Still, I ought te be satisfied,
for much mere was claimed for her than
was claimed for either of the two just
mentioned. It is asserted that net only
has she spent a great portion of her life in
one long, unbroken trance, but that net a
single morsel of solid feed has passed her
lips during the whole of that time. In ad
dition, the imposture has remained un
detected all these years and premises
se te remain undetected for a geed many
years longer. Between nine and ten
years age a farm laborer of no
repute, lest the woman who passed as his
wife. He was left with two daughters,
one about twelve and the ether a little
elder, and both se alike that they were
hardly te be distinguished. Shortly after
wards he made a "broomstick marriage"
as irregular connections are called in
that quarter with a kindred being, a
short, stout, resolute-looking woman, with
a wicked countenance, unpleasant antece
dents, and a mighty capacity for beer-bibbing.
She came of a family that had
already played off a case of trance, with a
geed deal of profit te all concerned, until
it came te a premature end by the party
exhibited becoming dissatisfied with her
part and still mere with her share of the
proceeds, and se refusing te perform any
longer. This affair suggested the trance at
present in progress. Directly after the
"broomstick" marriage it was proclaimed
that the younger of the laborer's daughters
had lallen into the lethargy in which she
still remains. A great noise was made about
the affair and much attention was drawn
te it, especially as it was announced that
the disease " ran in the bleed" and that
some day or ether nobody could tell when'
the girl would recover her senses, speak
a few words wonderful of course and
incontinently give up the ghost, all after
the fashion of her ancestors, who had been
similarly " taken." People came from
all quarters te beheld, and net a few of the
comers entertained and still entertain the
desire and hope of being present at the
premised revival. I paid a visit te the
place en a remarkable day in 1878. A mere
pieasant day for such an excursion or mere
uninviting excursion for such a day would
hardly be selected. Nevertheless there
was no break in the stream of visitors that
day, and the takings must have amounted
te a couple of pounds. On the whole I de
net think I shall be at all exaggerating if
I estimate the revenues of this particular
imposture for which I am sure it is at
quite 300 a year. Having purchased
the ritrht of way, I was led te the
show-room. I need net dcsciibe the de
tails of this familiar imposition. On going
down stairs I saw the sister, the picture
of the ether in all things, notably in fea
tures and complexion. It was easy te
understand that the two might change
places from time te time. Besides, there
was a geed deal about the place and its
tenants te impress me disagreeably ;
everything smacked of imposture. But it
must be admitted that it is well carried
out, considering the quality of the people.
They will allow no one te" interfere with
their management of the sleeping girl or
te place a linger en her, except under their
own supervision. They refuse all the
offers of benevolence, would net allow her
te enter a hospital or te be attended by a
professional nurse. They exhibit her and
that is all. Authoritative interference they
defy, because, as the woman explained it
te myself, they "asks nethin' from no
body ; people gives if they likes, and se
neither the parish nor the police dare med
dle with them." The family is net liked
by the leading people about, who enter
tain an opinion concerning the case much
the same as my own, Most of the mere
villagers, however, and notably its small
tradesmen, are staunch belivers, in fact
they find it te their interest te cry up the
whole thing, since there arc few of them
who de net derive benefit in one way or
another from the everlasting Hew of visi
tors. Celestial Customs.
Heme and Demestic Arrangements of the
CliiiieHe Imperial Family. Tutors and
Pupils. The Watchers of the
The Heng Keng Daily Press gives the
following account of the education of the
sons of the Chinese emperors and some of
the domestic arrangements of the royal
la mil' :
The sons of the Manchu emperors
( hwangtsz ) undergo from their tenderest
youth a system of the strictest education.
Rising at about 3 o'clock in the morning,
they first take their lessen in Chinese liter
ature, under the superintendence of the
only tutor who has the title of ship-fu or
"master." The tutor rises from his chair
as seen as the Imperial pupils enter and re
ceives from the latter a curtsey (tu-ch'ien),
which is then returned in the same
form. The tutor takes the seat
of honor, and when the lessen
is learned the pupil brimrs up his book,
deposits it before his teacher and returns
te his seat te repeat the task by heart. If
the lessen is net learned the tutor requests
a eunuch in attendance te bring the ferule
(ch'ing pan), and makes a show of ad
ministering correction. But each imperial
pupil is accompanied by eight fellow stu
dents (pwan-tub), known in Manchu lan
guage as ha-ha-chu, who study the same
books as their young master. When it
becomes necessary te admonish the latter
mere seriously the ha-ha-chu arc beaten
with the ferule vicariously ; but when the
imperial pupil acquits himself well they
arc, en the ether hand, commended or re
warded. A recalcitrant and obstinate
prince is as the last resei t actually himself
Hogged, though probably only nominally
by the teacher, or taken before the em
peror, who directs a eunuch te pinch his
cheeks (ch'ih pajeu). The late Emperor
T'ung-chih was frequently tweaked in this
way by order of the empresses.
The Chinese lessens occupies two hours;
after this comes the Manchu and Mengel
lessens in composition, given by the teach
ers who enjoy the less honorable title sefu
and who are obliged te meet their pupil at
the deer and make the first obeisance.
Then come lessens in various spoken lan
guages Manchu, Mongul, T'angut and
in local Chinese dialects. After these
come courses of instruction in feet and
horse archery (ma-pu-chien), athletics,
fencing, putting the stone, etc. (kung-tau-shih),
under the guidance of a
class of instructors called an-ta. The
whole of the young piinces' day
is taken up with mental or physical
exercises and they retire te lest at a very
early hour. At suitable intervals their
meals are weighed out for them, and en
no account are they allowed te in
dulge in the pleasures of the table.
At the early age of fifteen they
must marry. One year before a wife i
selected for the heir apparent, he is pro
vided with a handmaid taken from the
families of the inner banners (nei-ch'i) of
the imperial household (nc-wu-fu), who
must be one year elder than himself, and
prepare for his husband's duties. On his
accession this handmaid (tach 'iporke) re
ceives the title of fci, which is given tejher
alone among these inmates of the harem
who arc selected from the inner banners.
Ne one but the empress is allowed te pas.
the night with the emperor. The emperor
sleeps with eight handmaids (ch'ang-tsia)
sitting upon his bed, and sixteen ethers
(ta-ying) underneath the bed. all of them
girls from the nei-wu-fu. Their function
is te keep watch ever his majesty, and
they aie net allowed te sneeze, cough,
spit, or utter any sound.
A lay In the Palace.
The movements of the emperor after
awakening in the morning are signalized
by a clapping of hands en the part of the
eunuch en guard. Once a year en New
Year's Day the emperor and empress pre
side at a grand banquet, the empress sit
ting en the emperor's left hand. This is
the only occasion during the year en
which the emperor can see his wives to
gether and compare their respective merits.
The empress presents ai tides of feed (ke
shih), te the eunuchs, who receive it from
her majesty en their knees, and the em
peror performs the same politeness te the
women. The emperor is spoken of
and te as hwang-chang "Majesty" by
all but members of the inner
banners who use the term "chu-tsz"
"deminus." The emperor, empress,
and concubines arc all called by the
eunuchs "fe ye" or "chu-tzs" i. c,
" Buddha" or " demiuus," and the im
perial princess " ye" the latter term
equivalent te " sire." They are spoken
of as "ake." The three inner gates of
the imperial apartments are never entered
even by eunuchs, and of men only eunuchs
arc allowed te pass the fifth gate, which is
watched by a corps of imperial guards
(shi-wei), who arc authorized te strike
the shins of even the highest officers who
may approach without giving the word. If
an inmate of the female apartments wishes
te purchase anything, or te communicate
with the outer world, she must send a
handmaid te sound the iron plate (tien),
or the clapper (pang-tzs), with which the
harem is provided, en which the head
eunuch approaches te inquire who is in
want of assistance. Having learned who
calls, he despatches the under eunuch
specially attached te this department, who
addresses the handmaid aud takes her or
ders, either verbally or en a slip of paper.
The cabinet ministers (chun-chi) rise every
morning at 2, present themselves at court
at 3 a. m., and arc then received in audi
ence. Their meals are served up gratis freni
the emperor's pantry and the whole day is
spent at the palace, until 4 p. m. en "off
days and till G p. m. en days when there is
military business te discuss. Thus the only
time they can call their own is from say 5
p. m. te 2 a. ra. If indisposed, of course,
they may obtain leave of absence, which
must frequently be a great been. The
chnnchi never return the calls of any but
the most distinguished provincial officers,
and even then this is done en the way from
