When he reached the pavement he saw the state ly towers of the church in which he was called to minister, and beyond, the ex quisite parsonage, its picturesque walls draped with ivy. Mr. McMurray's car riage rolled by again, and soft, tender little Clara beckoned smiling to him with her white jewelled hand. It was a high path-and-a flowery one that -opened it self before him.

PECULIARITIES OP THE CKL- . KESE. The first aspect of China produces that impression on the mind which i we call the grotesque. This is merely be cause the customs of this singular nation are so opposite to our own. They seem morally, no less than physically, our an tipodes. .Their habits are as opposite to ours as the direction of their bodies. We stand feet to feet in everything. In box ing the compass they say "westnorth' instead of northwest, : f'eastsonth" in stead of southeast, and their compass- needle points south instead of north. Their soldiers wear quitted petticoats satin boots, and bead necklaces, carry umbrellas and fans, and go to a night attack with lanterns in their hanas, be ing more afraid of the dark than of ex posing themselves to the enemy. The people are very fond . bf fireworks, but prefer to have them in the davtime.-' La dies ride in-wheelbarrows, and cows -are driven in carriages. i; While in Europe the feet are put in the stocks, in China the stocks are hung round the neck. In China the family name comes firsthand the personal name afterward' . Instead of saying Benjamin Franklin' or-Walter Scott, they would say Franklin Benja min, Scott Walter. Thus the Chinese name of Confucius, Kung-fu-tsee, means the Holy Master Kung; Kung is the family name. In the recentwars with the English, the mandarins or: soldiers would sometimes run away; ! and then commit suicide to avoid punishment.' In getting on a horse, the Chinese mount on the right side. Their old men fly kites, while the little boys look on. The left hand is the seat of honor, - and to keep on your hat is a sign pf respect. Visiting cards are painted red, and are four feet long. In the opinion of - the Chinese, the seat of the understanding is the stomach. ' They have villages which contain a million of inhabitants. Their boats are drawn by men, but their carriages are moved by sails.' A mar ried woman while young and pretty is a slave, but when she becomes old and withered, is the most powerful, respected and beloved person in the family. - The emperor is regarded with the most pro found reverence, but the empress mother is a greater person than he.' When a man furnishes his house, instead of laying stress, as we do, ort rosewood pianos and carved 'mahogany, his first ambition is for a Jiandsome camphor wood coffin, which'he keeps in the best place in his room. The interest of mon ey is thirty-six per cent., which, Xo be sure, we also give in hard times to stave off a stoppage, while with them it is the legal rate. We once heard n bad din ner described thus: "The meat was cold, the wine was hot, and everything was sour but the vinegar." This would not so much displease the Chinese, who carefully warm their wine, while we ice ours. They understand good Jiving, however, very well, are great epicures, and somewhat gourmands, for after din ing on thirty dishes, they will sometimes eat a duck by way of a finish. s -They ... .Y...:.- t.M I. m" , ...
