Little Biw Kum, ihe Chinese belle, who wis stabbed to death on Mott tint* io New York, wai buried yesterday, and though she was a "slave" girl, ber funeral wis not devoid of the honors the Chinese pay their dead. Nothing tbat could make ber j mrney ti tbe land ol flowers and bapptofts pleasant was Isckiog. Io ber coffin dainty edibles to sustain ber on ber journey; cards with which to while away the time were laid beneath tbe food, and a comb, brosb and a mirror also were enclosed tbat she might present herself nicely at tbe heavenly gate. The On Leong Tong, to which the girl's master, Chlo Leo, belongs, buried her. No priest wai there to start little Bim Kom on her journey. Tbe nearest approach to ceremony was tbe action ol Coin Leo. He stood over the coffin looking at the girl be had loved and suddenly broke Jown. "My poor Biw Kum," be cried. "I loved her well." From tbe hair of tbe dead pirl he took a comb. B-eaking it, h.- laid the frag? ment on the c. ffio. That was to keep bad lock from ber and be: friends. Tb?r, saying a silent prayer, he burned a pat* gent joss stick.
