Tbe PeeraKe in China.
Chinese t itles are regarded as a species of
jffice, qualifying the holder to draw pay
from the treasury, but requiring from him
It the same time the performance of cer
tain duties. In our own more civilized
land the peers need do nothing (they need
not throw oat the deceased wife's sister
bill), but then neither do tbey receive any
thing, unless they have the good fortune
to be descended from the merrie monarch.
In Chiua a title can only be gained by suc
cess in war. No amount of quibbling Ht
the bar, no brewings, however excellent, of
draft stoat will make a man a peer.
The most persuasive of special pleaders
this backward people would, in the figura
tive language of the third emperor of the
dynasty described as "a lare stick," and,
if they followed literally his late majesty's
advice, soundly drub. Even the makers of
samshoo, the utitiocnl (and nasty) drink,
are held in no great repute. You must, if
you would le ennobled, either take a town
from the rebels, or what is equally effi
cacious, commit suicide when the rebels
are taking it from you.. The Chinese, of
all nations perhaps, have the most vivid
realization of a f u; ure existence for, as a
rule.it is the heroic ghost w ho gets the
title, his son succeeding him after three
years or so as second peer. C'ornh i 1 1 Maga
zine. Ephralm's Comfort in Affliction.
A venerable colored citizen on Bates
street was shoveling coal ashes into a bar
rel, Friday, and the rising dust had clung
to his features and shrouded his form.
He was working near a large pile ol
them, and in his haste he overstepped the
bounds of hrs physical powers, and slipping
in the mud rolled over in the ashes until
he looked like a wraith.
A man was fortunately passing by just
in time to see the better half of the mis
placed colored gentleman rush from the
door and gaze around after her lord and
"Ephrum, wha'r you lie, chilef"
"Chile" didn't answer.
"Fo de Iiwd, w bar yo' be, my Ephrum;
ob, wbar yo bef
With a long and melancholy groan Eph-
raim answered from behind the pile of coal
ashes: "An de Iawd spoke to de ehillen oh
Isrul by de piller of fire by night an by
an bv de piller of coal ashes by dav
Whatl'or you come out here a 'sturbin a
man we'eu he's restin on dat same piller of
restitnsbun? (Jo way."
Aunt Chloe looked at the ghostly Eph
raim once, uud the said, "Yo done turned
white and foolish," and she disappeared.
