At Tientsin I found and qcbuii
of shipping lying at tho whurvos.
Thoro woro boats of all kinds
and from of all parts of Obina;
tboro woro acros of raft mado of
logs, whiob woro to bo used as
lujubor; tboro woro great burgos
and junks Icadod with all of
and as wa nourod tbo
oily wo cainu into a forest of
masts, among wbicb swarmed
tons of tbousandd of coated
brown-skinned mon, loading and
unlouding tbo ships to which
tlioy bolongod. Tboro woro so
many of tb oso coOlios that tboy
ma do (no think of u tiwarm of
ants, and tboy woro quito'us.busy
us ants at tboir work. Every
man wont on tbo trot, andJ. siw
thorn at work from oarly morning
until lato at night Tboro is
no machinery uaod on tbe
wharvos of any Oliineso city.
Tboro aro no derricks and no
steam anginas;-' human muscle
carries all tho fro'ight. . ,
Tho houvicst of packaged aro
borno off on tbe backs of nion. t
was surprised at tboir strength. I
sawcool jsatTieutsinwhocould lift
COO pounds, and sbmo
bales of cotton on their backs..
At Hankow I saw coolies unloading
ingots of stool, which
woighod half a ton. Thoso ingots
wore brought from Belgium
to China, in ordor that tho
might oxporijnont with them
in (ho making of railroads. A
half dozon coolies , would 'take
hold of ono of thoso big piocos of
steel, .raising it by. means of ropos
and polos, and they would grunt
and sing ns tboy carried it oil tho
Htoamer, All tho boats on the
Yangtso aro unloaded in this way,
and at all of tho ports thoro aro
groat hulks or barges fillod iwith
men, who wait for tho steamers,
and who handlo all of .tlioir
' Thoro aro millions upon' mil
lions of peoplo who get tboir
living off ,tbo Obinoso rivers.
China is said to havo more, boats
thun all tho rest of tho world put
togothor, and its boat population
would in probability bo groatof
than that of all Europo and
America. On the Poarl "River, in
South China, at tbo city of Canton,
thoro aro said to bo 800,-000
who woro born,- live and dio
npon tbo .water. This rivo'r which
you reach from Hongkong; is
fillod with shipping, and as! you
noar Canton you wiil find it fillod
with crafts of all kinds, from tho
small stoamor to tho. groat Chinoso
junk. Thoro aro thousands bf
sampuna, or littlo Chinose gondolas,
with groat white and black
oyos painted on each sido of thoir
prow. Thoro uro grout cargo
.boats, which have biggor oyes,.
and. thoro aro vast ships',
tho eyes of which ,nro as largo
around ns a dinner plate. Tho
Chinese paint oyes on till tboir
boats, and a sailor would as soon
think ofttrying to tmyol. through
a city blindfoldo as ofsailing on a
boat.wh.ioh had not .a, pair of oyes
painted On tho front of it. .1 found
a wholo family living on theso

Chlheso.: I vememher one woman
who.r.iwod mo: tn shoro at,
Sho was Working away,
with a baby of about two yours
old on her baokJ! I hoard ft squall
in tho rear otthp boat, and, lppk
ing back-1- saw a ;raw,, . rod baby
frantically Waving Us ro3y arms
and crying on '.its protests through
its toothloss gjms, This woman
had no otho. homo thun hyr boat
and on such boats children nra

of tbo features of housoholtl life
tare to bo seen in oonnootioniwith

.Each of tho high oflioialsj Who
liyo along tho Chinoso rivers has'
bis own boat. This is doooratoil
with ilags, and ' tho biggor tbo
man tho moro (lags nnd bunting.
.Li Hung Chang has a steam
launch. When his wifo died not
long ago a gorgeous f unoral barge
was mado for her. This wps
decorated with white, which is
tho Chinoso color for monring,
and it looked gorgoous to American
oyes. Tho Chinoso havo boats
which are worked by the feotund
which uro shaped .just hko a
slipper. Thoso aro used ad
boats. Tboy aro not much
bigger than tho "ordinary danqo
nnd tboy can bo mado to gojvory
fast. At Canton I was shon a
boat whiob hud at
the aido and which woro w0rkod
by man power. Tho men turned
tho whools insido tho boat, which
outside and a half dozen monlworo
doing tho work of an ordinary
gtfdWngino. i could fill' this
column with description of the
difforont kind of bjiatu used by
tbo Chinese. Eitoh HOOtioti; has
its own poculiar Mnako of boats
and a Chinose sailor can toll to
what part of tho country nJship
belongs Ss sooh as bo sees it. -
Thero is a vast boat traffic in
tho fur interior of China. Jsaw
boats at Hankow which hud come
down almost from tho borders of
Thibet. They woro mado so that
".t'aoy could jump tho rapids and
work their way through tho groat
gorgos of Ichang. Theso gorgos
nro 270 miles abovo Hankow and
nearly 1000 miles from soa.
Tho grout Yangtso Itivor hero
Hows through immenso canyons,
tho rooks of which riso for hundreds
of feot straight up above tho
wator. Tho gorgos are;in places loss
not than 1000 foot Avido, and tho
groat river rushes through thorn
at the rate of nine miles an hour.
It risos und falls ton and twolve
foot in a siuglo night, and it boils
and sootho3,ns it goes through.
Horo is an eddy, thoro a whirlpool
(hid thoro against tho1 rooks it
dashes in a spray almost likq that
of the soa. Tho rooks are1 filled
with all kinds of ferns;- tboy aro
of granite, nnd along
gowned, pig-tailed work mon
aro quarrying blocks of
granito, which aro shipped down
tho YnnghjOrKiang. Thoro are
miles of. thoso , gorges,, and tho
sconory about them is tho most
boautiful in China. Tho boats
nro traokod through tho gorges,'
nud thoro is quito a population
along thorn whoso main support
is from suoh work.
Tho quoorest bouts X saw'du.ring
my trip on tho Pearl Riyor woro
tkoso dovotod i to tho iraising of
gooso and duoks. Tho Chinese

After this tlioy uro given, boilod
