' 7fr name in Britain, howeveh'
interesting than that of Koohester,
.which admirably show8 us how so many
other Roman names have acquired a delusively
English form, or have keen mistaken
for memorials of the English conquest.
The Ronnartownwas known as
Durobiivco, which does not in tho least
resemble Rochester, and, what is more,
Basda distinctly tells us that Justus, tho
first Bishbpof the West Kentish aee,
was consecrated "in tho city of
which the English call Hrofses
'ceabier, from one of its former masters,
by name Hrof." If this were all we
knew about it, we should be told that
Bseda dearly described the town as being
called Hrof s Chester, from ari English
conqueror ilrof, and that to contradict
this clear statement of an early writer
was presumptuous or absurd. Fortunately,
however, we have fcjie clearest
possible proof that Hrof never existed,
and that he was a pure creation of Breda's
own simple etymological guesswork.
King Alfred clearly knew better, for he
omitted this wild derivation from his
English translation. The valuable fragment
of a map of Roman Britain preserved
for use in the mediaeval transcript
.known as the "Peutinger Tables' sets
down Rochester as R'otibiB. Hence it is
pretty Qertain that it must have had two
alternative names, of which the other
was Durobrivro. Rotibis would easily
pass (on the regular analogies) into
ftotifi ceaster, and that again into Hrofi
ceaster and Rochester; just as Rhutupi
or Ritupaa passed into Rituf burh, and
so finally into Richborough. Moreover,
in a character of King JEthelbert, of
Kent, older a- good deal than Baeda's
time, we find the town described under
the mixed form of After
such a certain instance of phiological
blundering as this, I for one am not inclined
to place great faith ia Placements
as that made by the English Chronicle
about Chichester, which it attributes to
the mythical South Saxon, King Cisea.
Whatever Cissanceaster may mean, it
seems to me much more likely that it
represents another case of double naming;
for though the Roman town was
commonly known ad Regnum, that is
clearly a mere administrative form,
derived from the tribal name of the
Regni Considering that the Bime
veracious dironicte' derives Portsmouth,
the Roman Portus, from an imaginary
Teutonic invader, tort, and commi itself
to other wild statements of the same
sort, I don't think we need greatly
hesitate about rejecting its authority in
these earlier and conjectural portions.
' The Cornhill Afogazine.
How Chinamen Bargain for Wives.
'An Australian Chinaman, when anxious
to have a wife of his own nation,
sends a letter to an qgent in Hong Kong.
Tne following is a condensed translation
of the epistle :
"X want a wife. She must be a
maiden under twenty years of age, and
must not have left her father's hou.se.
She must have never read a book, and
her eye-lashes must be half an inch in
length. Her teeth must be as sparkling
aB tho pearls of Ceylon. Her breach
. mu,st be like unto the "scents of the magnificent
odor groves of Java, and her
attire must be from the silken weavers
of the Ka which are on the
banks of the greatest river in the world
the ever-flowing yanktse Kiting."
The price of a Chinese woman delivered
in Sidney is !g3&, but two Chinese
women only cost $52; herefore, the
heathen Chinese import women in,
couples. The- importer never sees his'
women before they arrive, and then he
ganejraljy selecte 'the ' best-looking on,e.
The other is shown around q a ntipaber
of well-to-do Chinamen, nd, afterHhey
have inspected her, she( is Submitted to
