The Untamed Chites of Tibet Are
Idolaters and Can.nibals.
MURDER ,N THEIR REL!GION.
At Their Wild Ceremonies the Priests
of Thezo Barbarians OCFer Up Hu
man Sncrifces to Their Grotesque
and Repulsive Stone Gods.
A religious festival by a savage tribe
of Asia, in which occurred a human
sacrifice and the burning of the victim
on a funeral pyre. is described by Wi
1iam Jameson Reid in his book, "Unex
plored Asia.- The rites were held in a
place called Chite City. Tzuchan.
.which was reached after a hazardous
journey through the Ping mountains.
"Let mc give a brief history of this
strange race, who for centuries have
defied the most persistent research of
explorers and ethnologists. Many cen
turies ago, in the vicinity of Shanghai,
there lived a highly enlightened race
known as the Chites. They were the
most fanatical and bigoted Buddhists.
so fanatical, in fact, that their turbu
lent spirits and eager desire to sow the
seed of proselytism caused frequent
revolutionary disturbances, The gov
ernment, as its only means of salva
tIon, made war on them. For years the
Chites battled against overwhelming
odds. until at last, their numbers fear
=ully reduced. they gradually retired to
the west, settling here and there, only
to be again driven back. After years
of wanderings they located in the wild
mountain region of northwestern Tibet.
"For untold centuries they have held
entirely aloof from their more civilized
Chinese neighbors, and today they are
as untamed and barbarous as were
their fierce ancestors. Many of them
are savages of the worst degree; even
cannibalism is said to be prevalent
among many of them- They acknowl
edge no allegiance to the einperor, en
tirely ignore the authority of the man
darins and hold no communication
with the outside world. Yet we have
visited their wild domain: we have
penetrated into their stronghold and
have witnessed their strange customs.
"It had been our intention to steal
into the city under cover of night, but
from our position of vantage we could
see -that some religious demonstration
was in progress, and we did not dare
to move. For half an hour our guides
(natives) crawled out on the plain and
returned with the information that
they had discovered, a considerable
cave -in the hillside to the left of the
town, which would screen us from ob
servation and at the same time permit
s to watch the movements of those
inside the walls. We had Just time to
- reach our place of concealment when
the leaders of the procession entered
the narrow orifice and halted while
torches were being Ut to guide their
passages through the gathering gloom.
Following them pressed the unkempt
crew, until the interior of the dome
shaped cave was filled to the point of
"For half an hour the ear torturing
strife of discord waxed louder at every
moment until a hundred devils in hu
man form flitted beneath the flare of
flickering torches. A frenzied enthusi
ast would leap into the air. lacerating
himself with a knife, grasping the gory
strip of flesh and grinding it under his
heel, or taunting a neighbor into the
spirit of emulation by flaunting before
his eyes the ghastly piece of flesh. Sud
denly from out the compact mass rose
a howl of mingled anguish and fury.
and a solitary indisidual mounted a
sort of platform and stretched forth
his hand. Evidently he was a high
priest. Instantly there was silence.
The light of the torches enabled us to
see the man who had mounted the plat
form. He was a tall, gaunt individ
-sal. All his right side was naked, and
his face was covered with gaping rents
of knife wounds, from which blood
"A garment of coarse cloth covered
his body below the waist. Soon we
saw five others follow him upon the
platform, which was of raised earth.
In a recess in the wall at the rear of
the platform one could see the dis
torted form of a gigantic image-a
stony, impassive figure of such gro
tesque ugliness that one could not help
wondering'how a race of people, how
ever unenlightened, could bring them
selves to worship an object off such re
"At .last a fearful moment was at
and. An old man was seized and
stretched upon a sort of stone altar,
raised above the platform. He realized
his last hour had come, and he strug
gled in fear and fury to escape from
the grasp of his captors, giving vent
to shriek after shriek until, exhausted.
he fell into a stupor. Four of the
priests held the faintly struggling
body, while from the gloom stalked
forth the sacrificial priest, his hand
holding a long knife. Once, twice,
thrice he abased himself before the
image, and then, turning round like a
beast ready to leap upon its prey, he
rushed toward the prostrate form. A
flash of light and the keen blade sank
to the hilt in the flesh of the victim
"Three times did the worshipers on
the floor rise and abase themselves,
and then quickly the minor priesit
seized the lifeless.body and held it in
-he air. For a moment it si'houetted
against the fitful glare of the fire; then
the flames leaped forward in eager
ecstasy to receive their prey."

Emperor Charles V. of Austria, by
far the most powerful ruler of his day,
was thus described as he appeared at
table by Roger Ascham, secretary tO
the English ambassador, in 1550: "1

had four courses; be had sod .beef

Ferdinando, king of. the Romans, ate
together very handsomely. carving
themselves where ihey list. without

Rowdyism in L::..an theaters was a
comn occ-trrence in the old days, as
is shown by '.he following from the
London i'os;t of Oct. 27. IIDS:
"Two men in the pit at Drury Lane
theater last night were so turbulent
and riotous during the last act of
'Henry V.' that the performance was
interupted upward of a quarter of an
hour. The audience at last asserted
their power and turned them disgrace
fully out of the theater. This should
always be done to crush the race of
dsgusting puppies that are a con
stant nuisance at the playhouse every

Genulne sardines are the young of
the pilchard. Their name comes from
the fact that they are most numerous
off the coast of Sardinia. They swim
in the spring in shoals containing mil
lions-fish shaped shoals ten miles long
and a half mile wide. The sardines are
netted and taken at once to the shore.
There they are washed, scraped and
sprinkled with salt The salt' is soon
removed, the heads and gills cut off
and there is another washing. Then.
on beds of green brush, the fish are L
-dried in the sun. Next they are boiled
in olive oil till cooked thoroughly. The
packers-women always-take them
now and pack them in the tin boxes
we all know, filling up each box with
boiling oil, fitting on the lid and mak
ing the box air tight by soldering the
joints together with a jet of hot steam.
Sardines are more or less perfect ac
cording as they are prepared more or
less immediately after their capture 3
and according as the oil they are pack- g
ed in is more or less pure.
