The Hardy Chinese.
From the Chlcajto Daily Nevrs.
Peculiar power to resist disease is a
characteristic of the Chinese, according
to Prof. E. A. Ross. For Instance, out of
ten children born In western homes three,
normally the weakest three, will fail to
giow up: out of ten children bom in
China about e'ght are doomed to die in
infancy. The difference is due to the
hardships that infant life meets with
among the Chinese, and with such rigor
ous selection there results a stock dis
playing a peculiar haruiness. I>lving in
the supersaturated, man-stifled land, pro
foundly ignorant of the principles of hy
giene, the massees have developed an im
munity to noxious microbes which excites
the wonder and envy of the foreigner.
"They are not affected by a mosquito
bite that will raise a large lump on the
lately come foreigner." says Prof. Ross
"They can use contaminated water from
canals without incurring dysentery. There
is very little typhoid, and what there is
so attenuated it was lon~ doubted to be
typhoid. All physicians agree that among
the Chinese smallpox is a mild disease.
The chief of the army medical staff points
out that during the autumn maneuvers
the soldiers sleep on damp ground with a
little straw under them without any ill
"Coolies, after two hours of burden-bear
ing at a dog trot, will shovel themselves
full of hot rice, with scarcely any masti
cation, and hurry on for another two
hours. A white man would writhe with
indigestion. The Chinese seem able to
sleep in any position. I have seen them
.sleeping on piles of bricks or stones, or
poles, with a block or a brick for a pil
low and with the hot sun shining full
into the face. They stand a cramped po
sition longer than we can and can keep
on longer at monotonous toil, unrelieved
by change or break."
