Pletwre o the One I Sa Fran- cisco's Chinese Quarter. In one corner is a miniature wooden warrior, frantically riding a fiery steed toward a joss who stands in his door way awaitiag the rider's coming. A teapot of unique design, filled with fresh tea every day, and a very small cup and saucer are always ready for the warrior. This represents a man killed in battle, whose noble steed, missing his master, refused to eat and. so pined away and died. A welcome Is assured to them in the better land if the work of man can accom plish it. The horse and rider are to them (the Chinese) what the images of saints are to Christians. In another corner is a tiny bowl of water. The gods occasionally come down and wash. At certain times of the year di rect questions are written on slips of paper and put into the hands of one of the greatest josses. These disap pear, and then the joss either nods or shakes his head in answer. On the altar or altars are several brass and copper vessels, in which the worshiper leaves a -sandalwood punk burning in such a position that the ashes will fall on the fine sand in the vessel. When one of these is full, it is emptied into an immense bronze vase on the balcony, and this, in turn, is emptied into the ocean. The Chinese take good care of their living and nev er forget their dead. Once a year, the fourteenth day of the seventh month, they have a solemn ceremony by which they send gold and silver and cloth to the great army of the departed. A furnace is a necessity in a joss house. It is lighted on ceremonial days, and paper representing cloth, gold and silver is burned, the ashes of the materials being, in their minds,' useful in spirit land. Private families send to their relatives and friends whatever they want by throwing the gold, the silver and the cloth paper, also fruits, into a fire built in the street in front of their houses. The days of worship come on the 1st and 15th of each month.Modern Culture. THE TALE OF A TACK. How an Italian Tenor Was Enabled to Reach High C. "There was once an Italian tenor at Covent Garden of the name of Tasca, who, I am sorry to say, sang his own praises better thajn the score," says Mr. William Parry, "the stage director at the Metropolitan Opera House. "For this and other reasons he was strongly disliked by all the workmen. One day he came to me and said, with great show of mystery: 'Tell me the exact spot.' "I could not for the life of me under stand what he wanted. 'You know well enough what 1 mean,' he persisted. 'Show me the spot where Tamberhk sang the high There is always one spot on the stage that is better than all the others to stand on when you sing. Where is it?' 'I'll show you later,' I replied. 'But, remember, never a word It would cost me my place if it should leak out "Then I drove a brass tack Into one of the stage boards, and he was over joyed when I solemnly pointed out 'the exact spot,' and so were the workmen at the prospect of a joke at his expense. That night he carefully stood on the tack and sang the high C. Rushing into the wings, he exclaimed. 'Beauti ful! Wonderful!' Ever afterward, no matter what part of the stage demand ed his presence, he would rush to the tack when the time for the high came and there deliver it."Saturday Evening Post. The Doctor's Indiscretion. "There is no profession which calls for the use of more discretion than the profession of medicine," remarked a well known physician of this city. "Just to give you an instance. "I came home late one evening after a very busy day and was told by the office boy that a certain Mrs. S. had called me up three times on the tele phone. As her young hopeful had scar let fever and I was afraid he had taken a sudden turn for the worse, I got 'cen tral' to connect me with her house without delay. 'The missus has gone to bed, sir,' said the voice of a maid in reply, 'but she was so anxious to know if she could wash Tommy's face.' "I called back that she had better ask the nurse if it was dirty. Now they have another doctor."New York Mail and Express.
