lainty l,Ufe china cups. The second
:urs0 consisted of small disies of water
melon seel3. These are a favorite delicacv
no.,K the Chinese. Next came sliced
)raiiKes, served in individual dishes
The oranges were small and very sweet
nd juicy. The fourth coun-e was the din

nd veKetables to eat with ti e rice, such as
luck meat, pork, mutton entry lean
iurd stringed cocoanut, etc This course
Jompleted our dinner, sinc we did not
jartake of the rice wine with which the
Chinese frequently end their meals.
Rice is the Chinaman's st iff of life and
lorms the principal article of diet through
Mi t the country. It is cookel by steaming
In a basket or sieve suspend ?d over a shal
low iron kettle partly fillet- with water,
lhe other articles of food are cooked in
tie same way and at the same time, as
many as four or five steame -s being fitted
ncely over each other and covered to keep
Uthe steam, which the wa-er below sup
rlies to all at once. Baked bread is not
a.sed; neither is milk, butfcr nor cheese.
At first it seemed strange to netosit dow n

Perhaps the greatest variityin the Chi

sonsists in raising them, liean curd and
Dean jam, sm-li as we had at the hotel dia

leans and uiixing the floi r with water,
fypsitm and turmeric. The -e are twenty
)r more kinds of beans and peas raised in
rhina, and tl. -y are prepared for food in
liany different ways.
Cabbage, bnu-coli, kale, cat liflower, cress,

aerds' purse, elover, garlic, leeks, onions,
icallions, ailant us and chive are some of
:he principal greens, many of them de

if ter eating.
Carrots, gourds, squashes, cucumbers,
satermeions, tomatoes, turnips, radishes,
Drinjals, pumpkins and kers may lje
lamed as most common among the score

At frequent intervals along the streets i a
.he city there are what, ma , be called res
aurants right out in the street. The
teeper may lie seen squatting on the stone
lavement on a low stool, lie has a little
larthen furnace or 'funga.ow," on which
le cooks various kinds of food. On a low
ioiinter by his side are tra ."s of food and
n front of the counter ar; stools for cus
omers. The Chinesfi generally have only two
lieals a day- breakfast about 9or lOo'clock
ji the morning ami ilinnei at 4 or 5 in the
ifternoon. Husband and vilu seldom eat
together, and never do so 'vhen strangers
r guests are present. The females eat by
ihemselves, after t he men have finished,
rhe rice is placed in a laige dish in the
(enter of the table and each person helps
limself, filling Ids bowl by means of a
adle or large spoon.
He then holds his bowl n his left hand
aear the chin, and then pushes the rice into
lis mouth by means of two clipps ticks,
loth held between the thurnb and the fore
ind middle fingers of the right hand.
Knives and forks are not used at meals.
tVhenever a bit of fish ir vegetable is
aanted, it is selected f ro n the common
!isu and conveyed to the mouth by the
ise of the chop sticks.
I'rivate hainjiiets among the higher
tlaKses of Chinese are given with all due
respect to form ami ceremony. The guests
ire invited by means of little slips of red
ir.per (red being the festal color) on which
a written: "On the d ly a trifling en

irrived invites tliem to lay aside their
robes of ceremony. The ti bles are laid out
iu tasteful manner, having pyramids of
sake, piles of fruit and dis les of preserves,
ibe whole almost buried with flowers.
Some time is consumed by host and guests
ji formal requests and ref tsals to take the
highest seats, though no t ne will sit down
mtil the host has taken h s place.
The host apologizes for the frugal char
