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
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
'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.'

have another doctor."New York Mail
