The emperor of Japan is entitled to
be considered the most aristocratic
ruler on the earth. The royal family
of Japan has a genealogical tree which
reaches to Adam. There have been
121 emperors of Japan, and they all
belong to this family. The first one
governed Japan just about 2,500 years
ago. He was on the throne 300 years
before Alexander the Great thought
he had conquered the world. The
Japanese have the history of all of
their emperors from that time down
to this, and they assure you that the
mikado is a lineal descendant of the

One of the curious social laws of
Peru forbids women to attend funer

passes through the streets the coffin is
carried upon the shoulders of the pall
bearers, who are followed by an empty
hearse drawn by two, four or six
horses, according to the means of the
mourners aad their desire for display.
