TUo Orientals succumb quickly to consumption, l'ong. tho Hosier, died yesterday, i week after they took him away. "Havo tho thlrty-Bovon Particular Prayers lid for me," ho bado his two closo friends. Ping Donir, moro commonly called Boll, and Jlorse-and-Waeon; "and send a pollto niossago to mr remoto ancestry, Informing them that with their honorablo permission I shall shortly Join their august presences In tho Flowery wy." In sccordanco with these Instructions" tha two ffreased their pigtails until thoso precious sppurtensnecs fairly drlppod fatness, put on their most tcorgeous clothing and, bearing gifts of Incenso, roast chlcLon and rlco wlno, repaired to the Jos House In Poll street, which was tho one that l'ong generally attendod, and there, msfclnc their offering'!, took part In tho thirty loren Particular Prayers said by tho prlosts, llorse-snd-Wagon, as tho older friend, ofllcl sting In twenty of tho prayers, while Boll took tho remaining seventeen. This being con cluded In a spaco of two hours, thoy struok al ternately upon tho great gong torty strokes, one for each year of tho life, of Pong, tho Uoaler. Because Pong was a man of no llttlo pjchlcnl promlnenco and especially favored by a num ber of deities, whoso names are not printed hero for the reason that nobody could road them If they were, tho priests made a epeolal address to Joss, standing as nearly on their heads as a proper regard for their pigtails pcrmlttod. This ended the ceremonies ot the Joss House. Thence Uorsc-and-YVagon and Boll went to tho deserted rooms of Pong at !22 Pell street, over the Universal Hcavcn-and-Earth Supply Em porium, which deals In articles ranging from cocked-hat paper prayers to flrc-drled chicken livers, wlth,thoiuands of other articles of neces sity and ornament. Outsldo Pong's door they raised a Bong which tho most tuneful tomcat ot Backfencedom would despair of Imitating. This was In tho naturo of a notloo to all the possessions ot tho dead man that their owner had departed this life and they must expect a change of estate. Bell, who Is something of a scribe, then produced a placard of red. Inscribed In black Ink, which ho firmly affixed to tno door. It was a learned and Intricate anagram which meant the same thing wbethor you read It up side down, hindsido Defore or inside out; and the tenor of it was as follows: "Enow ye, Afflicted Mourners of tho Dead, that Quong Von?, Special Favorlto of Joss, Jntlniaio Aisoclato of tho Nino Oods of Heal ing. Maker of Mysteries, Seer of tho Dark Un known, and Healer of the Droad Disease, Is pused away to join his August Ancestors In the ttealm of Unfading i lowers. For tho better wayfaring ot his spirit, the thirty-seven Particular Prayers have been said, and Joss has smiled upon the future of the departing soul. Friends with offerings may leave them at this door. " In the midst ot the New Tear's festivities many found time to leave offerings of chloken, rice, wine, email ornaments, ana flowers at the door of Pong tho Healer, for he was widely known in Chinatown, and, IX rumor be true, had effected many a euro to the afflicted. These cures were understood to be mainly by bisxnaglo and his association wltls the special dsltlM of medicine, though be was learned In herbs, too, and steeped a concoction of famous avail on tho after-morning of a too great In dulgence in opium or strong drink, in cases of this sort the patient was required to come to his ottlce, or retreat, as he preferred to call It, where ho was understood to pass mucn of his time In mystic communion with tho un seen world. Only wbeu the disease was so serious that the patient could not be moved wonld he consent to go to the sufferer's home, and then be walked through, the streets with faoe shrouded and taking the middle of the road way lent a polluting touch subtract from bis power: nor, once arrived at the house, would lis suffer any other to remain In the room with himself and tho tick man. It Is related with awe, to solect company only, by the friends of Bong Ah Wung, who lay nigh to death of a terer, how Pong the Healer, being called, spent seven Pours of silent appeal to the gods la the room ot the patient, nt the end of which he beatfa highly mystic tattoo upon his sacred prong, which sound roused Song Ah Wung from his stupor to a condition of extreme hunger and thirst, in which state he devoured two Elates of pickled raw"flsh. threo saucers of rlco, alt a chicken, and four ounces of wator Eielon seed, and drank a tumbler of rice whls ey and four glasses of lemon water, and lived a full week thereafter, dying Anally not of tho fever, but of Indigestion. This was ranked as Pong s most wonderful cure and Increased his reputation vastly. In the case of patients visiting his own re treat the Hraler Insisted upon the rigid eti quette due to ono who was a chum of tho Su perior Oods.

Great Is arfstography that nobis branch ot the romnntlo art that confines itself exclusively to tho delineation of tho most magnificent and wonderful are some ot Its developments. On the other sldo of tho Atlantlo we may trace Its growth from soino ot those fearfully beautiful word paintings of Bulwer Lytlon down to ths soul-hurrowlng romances ot Miss Marie Corelll, and on In u direct lino to such a volume as "The Vengeance of the Viscount." This latter was shown. In tho course ot a tendon Pollco Court caso, to be the workot a soulful scullery maid whoso literary labors seriously Intorfered with tho performance ot her dally duties. Look ing nearer home wo find, as exponents ot this branch ot art, not only tho gifted Mr. Chat field Taylor ot Chicago, who manufactures epi grams without an effort, but a growing lit erary school that seems to ows Its develop ment largely to the fostering Influcnco ot Mr. F. Tennyson Ncoly. One of the most entertaining examples ot the work ot tbls school Is "The Embassy Ball," by Virginia Rosalie Coxe (F. Tennyson Neely), a work of no tion that, as It throws a fierce light upon tbe manners and customs ot the aristocracies ot several continents, and as It has attained to tho dignity of a second edition, may be presumed to hare found an appreciative public. Though It Is not neoessary to suppose that Just such persons as the fair author brings before ns could be found In any known part of the world, they aro not, on that account, the less Interest ing. Realism may bo well enough In Its way, but It oannot be denied that romance also has Its rights. Moreover, ws Incline to the belief that by little Miss Tiddly wink, the typewriter, and Mr. Ribbings of tho lace department, these mag nlflcont creations of Virginia Rosalie Coxe's will be accepted as representative ot all that Is haughtiest and most aristocratic Delancy Courtney, the hero. Is a devil ot a fellow. A New York millionaire, handsome ns Apollo, and world weary at the early age of 35, bis llfo has been ono long succession of brilliant social episodes, "billiard and card smokers, stately dinners, with wit and wisdom on Up, and champagne suppers," with now and thon an entertainment offered to some blushing debutante, "chaperoned by mamma and a bishop or two to lend grace and dignity to the affair," to say nothing ot those moro modest festivities In honor of " the hand somest dansouses from tho ballet corps." at which. It Is needless to say, nolther mamma nor tho bishops were present. Women In almost every part of the world have looked Into this man's great brown oyes and loved him passion ately, and he Is known In Europe as Delancy le dlstlngud. No loss brilliant In her way is Mrs. Oranvills Churchill, " a quoen among women, a sovoreign among wits." Of her the autobiographical hero says, " There was a snap and go about her that was deliclously refreshing to tho most Jadod mind. No other woman possessed It; no other woman seemed ablo to acquiro It," Her chief charms seem to have been a phenomenal gift of epigram and her broad views on such subjects as the cocktail habit and the advisabil ity of "opening wine" nt regular and not too protracted Intervals. Thus does this gifted creature welcomo the hero to her stately coun try bouse in the Immediate neighborhood ot Now York city: "Weloomatomybomt, Mr. Courtney. Barton, 3M llr.

Learn the terms and you may drink aa much as you Ilka with out rhncklng the oommunlty." During the progress of a magnificent meal, and under the generous influenoo ot Chateau Margaux '09, she still sparkles. "Did you see Oraoe Wentworth whan you wars la Parts? She married aome miserable little wretch with a bargain-counter title." " I think I aaw her one night at the opera." " Did aho have on a low gown a scandalously low gown, I mean?" "o, tho woman to whom I refer did not hara It cut half low enough." "Well, that was not Grace Wentwortb. Her frocks have never been at high tide yet. Shall I serve you with chicken or lamb chops? I know yon want tho chops because they have on little white bloomers." "No; I prefer chicken." " Opera box or ballet ? I mean breast or leg?" But It Is not till the fair author takes ns to St. Pascal, by the bright blue waters of tho Mediter ranean, that she develops her full cowers as an aristographcr. Hero is assembled a motley throng of brilliant persons from all parts of the world of whom Nadlne Comtesse de Villon, neleno Prlncesse Petlcola, and Dagmar Prtn cesse Marajanskl aro particularly sparkling es pecially Nadlne. la Tum-Tum going to the chateau this evening ?" nia Royal Ulghneas does not play cards any more."

'The world knows him aa Wllhelm II. of Germany, the most daring dare-devil who ever held the reins ot an empire In his bandit I know htm aa a progreaalve monarch, dauntless soldier, loyal friend." Kadlno cvnsldera herself the Inferior of none. With her, the heir to England's throne la ' Tum-Tum," Germany's mighty ruler Is "Billy." Austria's sot. erelgn Is "Frani,"and the Autocrat of all the Hue alas is "NIckey." Theio haughty personages pepper their con versation with such curious Interjections as Jlferff le Son DUul Sacri le Viable! and tin Millc tonncrrt! and they address each other with reckless Indifference as mon amte and tnon pettle. But they rarely cease to sparkle. Tbe most Interesting and the most wlokedof them all is Marajanskl, wnloh should, we think, have been spelled Mary Jane-ski. She Is a Nihil ist, of oxqulslto beauty and indifferent morals, and Itis probable thatllttlo Miss Tiddly wink will conclude that, oven when under tho Influence ot the softer emotions, this regal creature was "something fierce." Sho loves the beautiful Delancy, nnd she does not hesltato to tell him so. Hut ho, strengthened by the ennobling Influ enoo of a young woman who was so good that, after talking with her, be felt as though he had Just had a mental Turkish batb, remains un luovnd by Mary Janeskl's eloquence, lie leans his majestic head ngatnst a marble column, sets his teolh hard, and answers all her passionate pleadings with n playful sarcasm. Even though her volco "sings In his brain with n reverberat ing cadence like an Intoxicating liqueur," and though "the blood of centuries leaps into her face," sho simply makes him tired. "Ah, roon Pieul If you could only makelovellke the Spaniards you would be perfectl They are all passion, Are, tempest, wrath when they lore!

"8oerlodlablet he has come to bid ma good-by. He will be hers only a minute, but he mast not sea you. Quick I Do not refuse! Oo Into my boudoir It Is In the next room " At this point Mr. Ribbings will probably observe that oven under the most trying cir cumstances tho gontlemanly Delancy showod admirable self-restraint. Ho rellrod to tbo boudoir, and Mary Janeskt's reputatlon-a brlttlo thing at best was thus preserved. We havo not alternated to unravel the mysteries of the plot of this curious tale, nor to follow the virtuous herolno In her many strange adven tures. We have striven to show that as a guide to the mysteries ot faahlonablo Ufo Mr. Ohat fleld Taylor does not stand alone, and that In tho matter of abundant epigram Chicago is not so far ahead of Eighth avenuo after all. As for Mr. Neely's school of arlstography, long may It flourish! Poor Mr. Stead! The onerous duties Inci dental to his profession ot Reformer General of the World at Large have ovldently begun to tell upon him. A year or two ago some thought less person lent him a complete copy Of the report of tho Lerow Committee, and, this being literature after bis own heart, he has been sitting up o' nights with It ever since. The rosult, aa shown In "Satan's Invisiblo World Displayed" (R. F. Fonn & Co.). is painful In tho extreme. Having buckled on his dark lantern and shonldercd his muck rako, he sot Ball for Now York to see about tbls thing. So agitated was ths unfortunate gentleman upon his arrival at Sandy Hook that his dis hevelled appearance Booms to have fright ened the surrounding son, and landscape into a Bcries ot violent ohromo-llthographlo ef fects. Tho billows of the broad Atlantlo heavod convulsively, tho great liner shud dered and throbbed as If conscious ot her curious frolght, and even tho luxuriant foliage of Staten Island betrayod a hoctlo flush. Later on, when ho had lauded and had rested and refreshed himself, inanimate naturo be came even moro agitated. Midnight was near. The stars gleamed and tho moon shone unveiled by cloud. On either aide of the broad expanse of a mighty river rose rugged banks of shadow, from which gleamed lights as ot a myriad eyes. "Up and down either side, as far as you could see, until the dark out lines merged In the distant horizon, these Innumerable eyes looked out over the water. Sometimes they winked, and now and then one or another would close" Perchance tbose eyes knew who was watching them, and winked In anticipation of the fun that was to come. But they wero not content to merely wink In silence. Horo and thore a sombre, melancholy scow would drift across the waters, and she when did she lookod to Mr. Stead llko Ths barge Whereon tbe Illy matd ot Aatolat Lay smiling like a star on darkest night. And, to add to the welrJneaa and mystery of the scene, ever and again there would rise from the wa tera a airange, melodious murmur, increasing In In tensity to a wall, which would continue a minute and then die away aa It arose. It waa like the plaintive lowing of aea monsters for their lost or wandering calves. Otherwise all waa still, eare the lapping of tho waves on tho ahore. "And behold I aaw," said the seer of tho Apocalypse, "aa It It were a aea of glass mingled with Are. And It was New York seen from a New Jersey ferryboat on tho Hudson, plying betweon Twenty-third street and the Pennsylvania Railway. Poor Mr. Stead 1 It seems almost time that somo one persuaded him to take a rest Mr. Edmund Qosso, who edits the "Litera tures of the World" series, published by Messrs. Appleton, contributes tho third volume under the title ot "A Short History of Modern Eng lish Literature." In this Instanro the torm " modern" Is a fairly comprehensivo one. as the author begins his etudy of English poetry and prose with the mysterious author of SirQaicain and the Qrcen Knight, who dates back to the middle of the fourteenth century. From this noint ho has endeavored to trace the gradual ev olution of English literature, keoplng before him "exprceslon, form, technique, as the central Interest, rather than biography, or sociology, or mere unrelated criticism." Tho student who attempts to follow all these gentlemen who write manuals of literature must expect to be brought face to face with a difficulty now and then. This is what Mr. Qosso thinks about Carlyle: "Ills amorphous aspirations excited young and generous minds, and It was natural that the preacher of so much lawless praise of law should seem a lawglvor himself. Yet It Is diffi cult to decide what Carlyle has bequeathed to us, now that tbe echoes of bis denunciations are at last dying away. Standing between tho Infinite and the Individual, he recognizes no gra dations, no massing of the species; he compares the two Incomparable objects of bis attention and scolds tbe finite for Its lack of Infinitude as It for a preventable fault. Unjust to human effort, he barks at mankind like an Ill-tempered dog, angry If It Is still, yet moro angry If It moves. A most unhelpful physician, a prophet with no gospel but vague stir and turbulenco of contradiction." Here, on tbe other hand, Is what Mr. Clement Shorter has to say In his "Victorian Litera ture," published tho other day: "Carlyle Is surely the greatest figure In our modern Utora ture. To him wo owe tho Indifference to more political shibboleths, the lull In party warfare, which Is the note of our age, His literary Influence on Frauds nnd Mill, Mr. Ruskln and Mr. Lecky, and numbers of others was tremendous. The place which was occupied by Swift In tho eighteenth century i held by Carlylo in tbe nineteenth, and, though every line he has written should rease to bo read, ho will still be remembered us the greatest of Htor ary figures In an age of great men of letters." Apart from its purely critical value, Mr. Qssse's volume Is fascinating In Its Interest and Is written throughout In the brilliant style that distinguishes his various studies of eighteenth century Utorature, Messrs. Putnam publish Vol. 1. ot tho excel lent "Encyclopedia of Sport," edited by tho Enrl of Suffolk nnd Berkshire. Mr. Hodloy Peek and Mr. F. O.
