Coodenaed Ar-xunt of the Mmt Disastrous
Flooil of Modern Tines.
The greatest of modern floods was that
which resulted from the overflow of the
(Treat Hoang-Ho, or Yellow river, in 1887.
This river, wnir-b has earned the title of
"China's Sorro," has always been the cause
of great anxiety to the Chinese government
ami to the inhabitant of the country through
which it flows. It is guarded with the utmost
care at great expense, and annually vast
sums are spent in repairs of iU banks. In
October, IStT. n number of serious breaches
occurred iu the river's banks aUmt 800 miles
from the coast. As a result the river deserted
Ita natural bed and Bprctvt over a thickly
populated plain, forciug for it.xelf Anally an
entirely new roa.1 to the sea. Four or five
times in 2, years the (Treat river had
changed its bee, and each time the change
had entailed gr -at Inxs of life and property.
In ls52 it Lur-st through its banks 2o0 miles
from the sea an i cut a new bed through the
northern nrt (f Shantung into the Gulf of
Perbili. The isolation in which foreigners
Uveal at that time in China prevented their
obtaining any i iformation as to the calami
tous roMiilht f this change, but in 1SS7 many
of the barriers against foreigners had been
remove.! and a general Idea of the character
of the inundation was easily obt4iuable.
For several weeks preceding .the actual
overthrow of ta. banks the Hoang-Ho had
been swollen from its tributaries. It had
been unusually wet and stormy in northwest
China, and all the small streams were full
and overflowing . The first break occurred
in the province of Houau, of bi.'h the capi
tal is Kaifeng, i.nd the city next in import
ance is Ching oi Cheng Chou. The latter is
forty miles west of Kaifeng and a short dis
tance above a bend in the Hoang-Ho. At
this bend the stream is borne violently
against the sout a shore. For ten days a con
tinuous rain hac been soaking the embank
ments, and a strong wind increase! the al
ready great for -e of the current.
Finally a breech was made. At first it ex
tended only for j hundred yards. The guards
made frantic f-Torts to close the gap, and
were assisted by the frightened people in the
vicinity. But t be breach grew rapidly to a
width of 1,'JtW yards, and through this the
river rushed wit h awful for-e. Leaping over
the plain with incredible velocity, the water
merged into a email stream called the Lu
chia. Ix.an the valley of the Lu-chia the
torrent poured in an easterly direction, over-
helming everything in its jth.
Twenty miles from Cheng Chou it encoun
tered Cliungmou, a walled city of the third
rank. It-s thousands of inhabitants were at
tending to their usual pursuits. There was
no tt-legrapb to warn them, and the first in
timation of dUastrr came with the muddy
torrent that rulksl down Uou them. Within
a short time on y the tojis of the high walls
marked where a flourishing city had tieen.
Three huudred ilUges iu the district disap
peared utterly, imd the lands about 300 other
villagra were inundated.
The flood turucd south from Chungmou,
still keeping to the course of the Lu-chia, and
streU-hej out in width for thirty miles. This
vast liody of wi.tr was from ten to twenty
feet deep. Several miles south of Kaifeng
the flood struck a largo river which there
joins the Lu-chia. The result was that the
flood rose to a .JI greater height, and, pour
ing into a low lying and very fertile plain,
which was densely populated, submerged up
ward of l,.r.U vi lages.
Not far beyond thisUicality the flood passed
into the prov iuc i of Anhui, where it spread
very widely. The actual loss of life could
not be compute 1 accurately, but the lowest
intelligent estimate placnl it at l.oMl.OOO, and
one authority flxe-l it at 7.tlij,tKj. Two mill
ion people were rendered destitute by the
Uotki, and the i-utTcriug that resulted was
frightful. Four months later the inundated
provinces were s ill under the muddy waters.
The goverumeut officials who were on guard
when the Iloau -Ho broke its hanks were
condemned to si-vere punishment, and were
placed in the pill jry in spite of their plead
ings t hat they hid done their best to avert
the disaster. New York Sua.
The use of the LL. I), is the most droll and
incongruous, but the use of the D. D. is the
most discreditable. The wild profusion with
which the juiges ..f the clergy list of every
sect in America i.re spotted all over with the
synilwJs dreicrilnd by the late lr. Cox as
"seiiMlunar f ardt-Is," is due not ouly to the
amiablness or tl e business enterprise of the
colleges, but to the Miiail vanity of what
George F.liot uitMmpatbetically character
izes as t he clerit al sex. Here is a curious
paradox that tl e one set of men to wbcip
this sort of disiinctiou is forbidden, under
the command: ""Be ye not called rabbi,"
should I- the only set of meu in America to
seek it, and make much of it, aud ostenta
tiously parade it.
The lawyer wh should put LL. D. on his
tin sign, on his 1 riefs or at the head of his
not ".per, oad soon find Lis life made a
burden by the wis of the profession. It is
only the Christian minister, who, tieing
tapped on the one cheek with this accolade,
promptly turns t ie other also. It is well un
derstood that ministers an a class do very
much like this kind of thing; and faithfully
doing to others as they would that these
should do to then,, are punctilious in bandy
ing compliment ry titles among themselves,
such as are disuse 1 by the good taste and self
retqiei-t of more secular men. Rev. Dr. Leon

disease, but under it the paroxysms grow
milder, and finally cease. Numerous physi
cians attest to the value of this treatment.
