RELIGION OF JAPAN.
SHINTOISM RESPONSIBLE FOR JAPA
, NESE LIBERALITY.
Tlx national Tlellc;lon Harmonises Some
what With Waiter Thoaght The Spirit
of Toleration Not ilegularly Established
A Japanese gentleman not long ago
visited a drag store on the Third aveune,
in this city, and asked for a postage
Stamp. The stamp was dnly supplied by
the head of the drag store, who, wish
ing to be pleasant and agreeable to the
foreigner, said, "Well, sir, which do
yon like better, America or China?"
The Japanese gentleman indignantly
replied: "May I enggest, sir, that it is
your business to sell drugs and stamps,
and tbat yon should confine yourself to
these duties? I am not a Chinaman, but
a native of Japan, and it is a mark of
your ignorance of geography that yon
do not know the difference. "
Without apologizing for the rudeness
of the gentleman of Japan, we venture
to remark that western peoples, even
the most educated among us, do not
seem to t carefully distinguish between
Japan and China.
The Japanese hare always regarded
themselves as far in advance in civiliza
tion, and thre is nothing which offends
the native of the island of Japan more
than to be taken for a Chinaman.
Very much of the liberal attitude of
the people of Japan toward western
thought and custom arises from the fact
that its national religion is Shintoisin.
Most pocj io imagine that Buddhism
is the relifion of Japan, and cor"
quently the national cult of Shintoism
is a ruligions belief which until the laet
30 years h . never been heard of in the
For centuries Japan was a terra in
cognita to the rest oi humanity, although
its history dates from 600 B. C, when
Jimnier Tenno was king, and Shintoism
was his creed. Buddhism was not in
troduced into Japan until 550 of the
Christian era, when it came from India
by way of Korea.
The term Shinto is of Chinese origin
and is expressed by the almost unpro
nounceable Japanese word of Eami-no-michi,
the meaning of both words being
"the way of the spirits. " The essciitiul
principle of Shintoism is a combination
of ancestor worship and nature worship,
and it would seem that the latter of
these elements is largely due to the con
tact of Japan with the Taoism of China.
Shinotism is therefore the veneration of
the country's heroes and benefactors of
every age, legendary, historical, an
cient and modern.
The essential feature of Shintoism is
its liberal attitude toward other reli
gious beliefs, and when Buddhism was
brought into the country the priests of
the ancient belief extended the right
hand of fellowship toward its missiona
ries. But the same liberality has not
always been returned by the clergy of
Buddhism, and not very long ago one of
the great temples at Tokyo was bnrned
by the Buddhists to prevent its falling
into the hands of the Shinto priests.
Shintoism has been equally liberal to
ward modern Protestant missionaries,
for before the Church of England edifice
at Tokyo, now known as St. Andrew's
church, was built the present Shinto
government lent one of the Shmto tem
ples for Church of England services.
Whenever opposition to Christianity has
arisen it has come from the old nobili
ty, who are opposed to all change and
are zealous supporters of Buddhism.
Although Shintoism has been the an
cient religion of Japan for more than
124 centuries, it had never been declared
the "established religion" of Japan un
til the year 1868, when for reasons
wholly political it became the establish
ed religion of the country. A grant of
$300, 000 a year was made for the main
tenance of the Shinto temples and
shrines which are said to be somewhere
about 100,000 in number.
The Buddhism of Japan had been ex
ceedingly aggressive and had almost sub
verted the ancient system of Shintoism,
but now when a child is born it is taken
by its parents either to a Shinto or a
Btddhist temple for dedication. Funer
als are now conducted by either Shinto
or Buddhist priests, as the relatives may
The first great god of the Shintos is
Mingo no Mikoto, the remote ancestor
of the priest mikado, who is said to have
been descended from the god and god
dess of the sun. The mikado is known
among the Japanese as Teushi, or the
6on of heaven, on account of his celes
tial descent, the title ef mikado mean
ing very much the same as the sublime
porte of the Ottomans namely, "the
presence," an expression so common in
oriental lands for exalted personages.
It is said that when the goddess of
the sun made the mikado's remote an
cestor (Mingo) sovereign of Japan she
delivered to him "the way of the gods"
and decreed that bis dynasty should be
as immovable as the sun and the moon;
- hence the need for making Shintoism
the established religion. She also gave
him a mirror as a sacred emblem, pay
ing, "Look upon this mirror as my spir
it, keep it in the same bouse and upon
the same -floor with yourself, and wor
ship it as if yon were worshiping my
actual presence. " The story is that this
sacred mirror is still in- the Shinto tem

CHARLOTTE TEMPLE'S GRAVE.
The Hart Popular Spot la Trinity Church.
yaxd. Mow York.
A fow days ago pasaersby in Broad
way, looking through the high fence
that surrounds Trinity churchyard, saw
a slender black gowned girl kneeling by
the grave of Charlotte Temple. Her
head was bowed in her hands, and she
seemed utterly lost to her surroundings.
After awhile she arose with a very pale
face, walked swiftly through the gates
nd disappeared in the crowd. She was
only one of many devotees at the shrine
of the poor girl who died for love. No
body ever visits Trinity churchyard
without pausing for a few minutes be
fore the big brown slab that bears only
the name "Charlotte Temple."
"Oh, yesl" said the gray haired old
man whose duty it is to see that the an
cient tombs are kept in order. "It is the
most popular grave in the yard. I have
been here going on 17 years now, and
there have been very few days in good
weather when the grave has not had a
visitor. Several times I have seen wom
en come here and stand in the cold and
sleet and snow looking at the tomb.
Somehow they always look as if they
were in trouble. '
"Seven or eight years ago I began to
put potted flowers, geraniums and the
like on the grave, and I have kept it up
every summer since. It is mainly to
mark the grave, so that visitors can find
it It is the only grave in the yard that
has flowers on it. Otherwise the people
would bother me to death. When they
ask me whero the grave of Charlotte
Tomple is now, I simply tell them that
it is over on the west side with some
potted flowers on it That saves me a
deal of troable.
"Several of the gravestones are crum
bling badly and will have to be repaired
if the descendants of the dead want to
perpetuate their memory. See; here is
the oldest grave in tho place. "
Then the old man swept away a layer
of dust from a crumbling gray stone and
showed the date, 1G81. "We have sev
eral that date almost as far back," said
he, "but none of them is so popular as
that of Charlotte Temple."
Then the ancient attendant tucked
his brobm under his arm, picked up his
wheelbarrow and trundled away among
the graves. New York Herald.
BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN PEAKS.
Banler, Shasta, flood and Other Fine
Mountains of the Far Northwest.
About 50 miles south of Tacoma yon
get a view of the most beautiful moun
tain peak on the earth's surface, Mount
Tacoma, or Banier, and carry it with
you for three or four hours. It rises di
rectly from the tide level to a height of
14,444 feet, unhidden by intervening
ranges or foothills, and stands squarely
against the sky, the perfection of mag
nificence, dignity and power. It is twe
and one-half times as high as Mount
Washington, and I believe the highest
peak in the world that rises directly
from a plain. It is known to us in the
east as Mount Eanier and was so called
in honor of Admiral Ranierof the Brit
ish navy, but here they call it Mount
Tacoma, the old title given by the
Siwash Indians before the white man
came. The base is covered with a dense
forest of ever living green. - Above the
timber line the snow is white and
smooth and perpetual, and it looks as if
it were a solid block of the purest mar
ble. Mount Tacoma is just two feet higher
than Mount Shasta, 297 feet higher than
Pike's peak and 400 feet higher than
Gardiner's peak. The highest in the
United States, Monnt Crillon, Alas
ka, is over 16,000, but an exact meas
urement has never been taken. Mount
St Elias, Alaska, is 15,327; Mount
Whitney, California, is 15,088, and
Mount Williams, California, is 14,400.
There are several other very beautiful
peaks visible from the railway, includ
ing St Helen, 9,750 feet, the patron
saint of Portland, around whose head
hangs a perpetual halo; Mount Hood,
which is a shapely cone, 11,225 feet,
which was named in honor of Lord
Hood of the British admiralty, and
Mount Baker, 10,800 feet, christened in
honor of Joseph Baker, one of the lieu
tenants of Peter Puget, who discovered
the sound. Theodore Winthrop has
written lovingly about them, and they
are the subject of the purest and choicest
descriptions that exist in the classic
prose of Washington Irving, although I
believe he was jiever nearer them than
his home on the Hudson river, 3,000
miles away. Chicago Record.

A FORTUNE AT CARDS.
IT WAS WON BY JOHN SCOTT, THE
B Is Winnings at White's, la London, In
the Last Century Exceeded 3,000,000.
Though Illiterate, Ho Was a Maa of tha
Most Precise Methods.
Of all the gentlemen gamblers of the
close of the eighteenth century in Eng
land a single one is noted for the im
mensity and the regularity of his win
nings. This was John Scott, who, be
ginning as a penniless captain, wound
op his career as a millionaire general.
On the subject of the campaigns he con
ducted history is silent, but contempo
rary London was full of talk of his mar
velous luck with dice and cards, and
the marital misfortunes of his later life
gave more material for the gossips.
Writing to Richard Bentley, from
Arlington street, on Feb. 35, 1155,
Horace Walpole says:
"The great event is the catastrophe
of Sir John Bland, who has flirted away
bis whole fortune at hazard. He t'other
night exceeded what was lost by the
late Duke of Bodford, having at one pe
riod of the night (though he recovered
the .greatest part of it) lost 32,000.
The citizens put on their double chan
neled pumps - and trudge to St. James
street in expectation of seeing judgment
on White's angels, with flaming
swords, and devils flying away with
diceboxes, like the prints in Sadler's
hermits. Sir John lost this immense
sum to a Captain Scott, who at present
has nothing but a few debts and his
Sir John Bland, to conclude here the
history of that luckless dicer, shot him
sel dead after losing the last of his for
tune in Eippax park.
Captain John Scott was of that branch
of tho numerous Scott family of which
Sir Walter was a member, and his an
cestor in the thirteenth century was that
famous chemist, Michael . Scott, who
won the name of Wizard. A later Scott
distinguished himself in the time of
Charles II by marrying, when he was
himself only 14 years old, a lady who
was three years his junior. The bride
was Mary, countess of Buccleuch, in
her own right the richest heiress in Scot
land. The marriage was a secret one,
and none of the friends and few of her
family were informed of it until the
day after. The youthful bridegroom did
not profit greatly by this match, for his
bride died at 13. Her sister Anne, who
succeeded to her titles and estates, made
a marriage with the pet son of Charles
II, Monmouth, and had a numerous
It was 60 years later, or about 1750,
that young John Scott, son of the Laird
of Scot's Tarvet, entered King George's
army. Two years later he was in Lon
don and in the midst of the most reck
less set of spendthrifts, rakes and game
sters that English society has ever
known. Sir John Bland was only one
of a thousand rich young Englishmen
who threw away his fortune over the
gaming table at White's. The one his
toric loser of that era was Charles James
Fox, Pitt's rival. Pox gambled away,
all told, no less than $5,000,000. Scott
was the very antipodes of Fox. When
he died, at a ripe old age, he left a for
tune as great as that with which Fox
had begun, and every penny of it had
been won at the gaming table. Fox was
a ripe scholar. Scott was almost illit
erate. Fox said that losing was the next
greatest pleasure to winning. Scott
never lost, or so rarely that it did not
affect the serenity of his career as a
winner. Fox would go home in the
morning after a night in which he had
gambled away 10,000 or 20,000 and
immediately lose himself in a study of
Sophocles or schylus. Scott, like the
sensible fellow he was, would button
his coat over the portemonnaie in which
he carried away winnings of an equal
or even greater amount and immediate
ly go to bed so as to be fresh for play
in the evening.
When Scott found himself in London,
and amid the wild young men of his
era, he determined that gaming was
his only chance of getting money. When
he engaged himself to throw a series of
mains with Sir John Blond, he had, as
Horace Walpole puts it, nothing "but
a few debts and his commission. " His
shrewdness taught him that there was
nothing in dicing, at which a stupid
man has as good a chance as a bright
one, and so he speedily gave up hazard
and applied himself to whist, at which
game heaven fights on the side of the
skillful player. Never in the history of
play did men gamble for such high
stakes as Soott and his victims did at
White's between 1 753 and 1 780. Scott's
system was an exceedingly simple one.
He gave himself the best of it in ev
ery possible way. He never went to the
gaming table unless his head and his
stomach were in the very best order.
He never lost his composure or his good
nature for an instant He played a per
fectly fair and honorable game, and at
first he made it a rule never to play for
more than a fixed sum, which he could
afford io lose. He won so steadily that
it wasn t long before he' was prepared
to risk any sum which even the wealth
iest or the most reckless of his adver
saries would venture to propose.
A story which illustrates capitally
Scott's patience in the face of hard luck
has been preserved. One night, while
he was at the card table, news was
brought to him that his wife, the first
Mrs. Scott, had given birth to a girl.
"Ah," he said, "I shall have to dou
ble my stakes to make a fortune for this
But in a few hours he was 8,000 to
the bad. Retaining his invariable seren
ity, he said he was sure of his luck re
turning, and at 7 a. ru. be went home
the winner of 1 5, 000. That's the sort
of play that went on at White's night
after night during the years that John
Scott was winning the largest fortune
ever accumulated by a gentleman gam
