A CHINESE WEDDING, IXote from 11 Ki-ccnt Ix-ttor Written hy a ai f Mtlcoi at IIonr Kot to His Father. Of ootirse you know that tho social life of the hit. em la entirely tliflcront from ours. In no way is this difference '""re marked than in the manner of be timlial :.tnl in tho ritS of mnrriap;e. In Home cases children are betrothed as Boon as born; otben at a more advanced age, say from eij-ht to nine years: but I .mi km that this custom la on its last legs. So many unhappy marriao;es hav arisen from this practice that pa tents are loath to engage their children before litid out s in of the attributes of the proposed husband. When the contract is once made only leprosy or physical disability can annul it. When i hair children arc ten or twelve years old the parents nre taxed with the' anx ious task of hading them suitable part ners for life. The betrothal is entirely in their hands. It is arranged through the medium of a class of persons who make it their business to find out overy thin.r ooneernin-r the families of mar riageable parties, and the character and dispositions of eligible young men and Women. Their profession is con sidered Ittghly honorable. Great confi dence is reposed in their judgment and veracity. As their employment de pends to a great extent upon their repu tation, they have every inducement to act on t ho square. Both men and women are employed to conduct those negotiations. The go betweens arc termed mci-jui. Six steps are taken before u regular marriage. The father and elder brother of the young man first send a mei-Jui to the father and brother of the girl to ask her name, ami to ascertain the moment of bar birth, so that the horoscope of the two may be examined, to lind out Whether the proposed alliance will be a happy one. If so the second step taken. The boy's friends send the go between back anil make an offer of mar riage. If (hat be accepted the girl's Mends are reqaested to put their assent in writing. Presents are then sent to the girl's patents. If the parties are wealthy they ara valuable. The go-be-tween next raqossf the parents of the girl to chose a lucky dav for the weil diair. The preliminaries are then con clude 1 by the bridegroom either goiter or sending a party of his friends with music, to bring his bride to her new home. These wedding ceremonies cost a great deal of money. It would break a small merchant if he had to marry oil more than two of his children in one year. The parents go into the tiling in royal style; and if there is not money enough in the till to carry on the cere -nwnj with. proper eclat they will either mortgage their property or borrow money beyond their mentis. From the time pf the engagement until the mar riage the young lady is required to maintain the strictest sVeluskm. When over friends call on her parents she must retire at once to the inner apartment. She i- allowed to visit onlv her rcl.-it i vnu and then when she goes' out she must I use a rlofc I sedan chair. They have no dealings with the world. They must treat even their brothers anil sisters with g.eat reserve. The rich maiden, of course, bribes servants to give her in formation boncferarng her intended, and the outside world generally. In rare instances t he parties are allow ed to see each other. The principal formalities of a marriage are the same all over Chlfea, but local customs are observed in some portions of the empire which would appear very singular at the cap ital. The marriage gifts are frequently ery cosily. This, however, depends upon the drenmstnnoes of the bride eioom. There are always present- of -ome kind. On the wedding day the guests assem ble in the bridegroom's house. Then a procession is formed, consisting of Irtands, bands of music and sedan chairs decorated in red and gold, with bear ers in re 1 coats, and dressed in a sort of livery , sometimes wearing red caps. The procession starts from the house with a courier at the head. He bears a large piece of pork on a tray. 10 keep off malicious demons who may lie lurk itig on tho street corners ami in the al io. The demons are supposed to tackle the pork, and w hile they are thus I busied the procession passes on without I being affected by their evil influence, j AH ttiis time tho bride is at her own! house, arr.Hvig herself in her I cm dress snd richest 'jewels.

When concealed in this chair she is car ried U her husband by four men. These ' marr.age sedans are very expensive. It costs twenty Mexican dollars to hire onaS of thebet for a procession.

The space is so eontincd that a poor girl in marriage paraphcr- ' naiU must he pretty well squeezed : wbeu sliu airi ve at her future home.1 Chinese girls, however, get accustomed to squeezing from infancy. hen the bride is seated in the chair. her mother or some other relative locks the door and the key is given to the best man. I suppose he turns it over to the bridegroom on reaching his house. The procession returns with more care and more style. I saw one during a ramble in a Chinese town. As the bride was borne past us we irave her three cheers I dare say that all her children will be either knock-kneed or bow-lewcred, be- cause ot the cheers of the barbarians. Good luck to the poor bottled up one. She had the best wishes of all our party. as we followed the procession for some squares, to the great astonishment of all the Chinamen on the street. The column was headed by a number of the bride's family with tablets of rank. The tab lets were carried by boys in red jackets and parti-colored hats. Other boys, dressed similarly, bore large lanterns of various colors. There were a num ber of wooden dragonheads in the procession. An old man, gorgeously dressed, carried an umbrella to hold over the bride when she alighted. Young lads followed playing on drums, fifes, flutes and gongs. Behind them were a score of t ables carried by groups of men, and covered with the bride's trousseau. The tables were canopied and were trimmed in gilt and red. The first was covered with rolls of silk, satin and other gear for dresses. Next came a tablo laden with shoes, pink, blue, mauve, red, and all colors, very small and prettily arranged. Then came tables of jewelry and hair ornaments, and one covered with trinkets and use ful articles, all made of ivory. Another table, was laden with fruit, cakes and preserves. Next came the cooking uten sils, borne by the friends of the bride and groom, and last of all the sedan of the bride. As the procession approached tht bridegroom s door a band stationed there struck up a tune, and fire-crackers were let off by the box until the bride was carried within the gate. The go-between then got the keys from the bridegroom and opened the door of the sedan chair. As the bride alighted she was saluted by a small child at the side of the old man. The groom was clos eted within the house, and she went in to seek him. She still wore the enor mous hat and mantle. When she found the groom he greeted her with great gravity. They both approached the an cestral table and bowed their heads three times. They next took seats at a small table bearing two roblets tied to gether with thread and containing wine. The go-between severed the thread, but the bride failed to quench her thirst, owing to the enormous hat and mantle. The two were now man and wife. The husband took the hat and mantle from the bride, and for the lirst time in his life had a look at her. After he bad looked at her for some minutes he called in his friends and guests. They scru tinized hettand made no bones of ex pressing their opinions concerning her charms. The females gave their tongues full scope, and had no mercy upon the poor bride. She took it nil without making any disagreeable answer, for far that the match would be considered an unlucky one. These cruel criticisms ended, she was introduced to her hus band's parents, after which she sainted her own father and mother. The wed ding feast was then served, the sexes eating at different apartments. The males wen served by the bridegroom and his male relatives, and the females by the bride and her mother-in-law, as sisted by servants. The two sexes rare ly sit down at the same table. Marriage is very common among tht Chinese. You hardly ever come across a girl of sixteen or eighteen who is not tied down to. some man. Dsj Hartals. The subject of how to dispose or our dead in such a manner as best to com bine reverence for their sacred bodies, with duo care for the health of the liv ing, is one so full of interest that no one traveling in lands where methods differ ing from our own are practiced can fail to experience some curiosity on the sub ject. During our travels in India 1 had abundant opportunities of witnessing the process of cremation as practiced by the Hindu.-, most especially at Benares, that most holy city of the Brahmins, the bourne which every pious Hindu craves to reach, in time to die there, on the banks of the sacred river Ganges. Many a time 1 have seen the dying laid down to breathe their last breath alone on the hallowed shore, while their friends went Off to bargain with the neighboring tim ber merchant for as much wood as their limited means could procure. Often in the ease of the very poor this sum was so small that the humble fire has barely sufficed to char the body, which was then thrown into the river and suffered to float seaward, in company with many another, in every stage of putrefaction, spreading the seed of pestilence on the sultry air, and poisoning the stream in which myriads hourly bathe, and from which they drink. But in the case' of the wealthier Hindu the funeral pyre is carefully built, and when the corpse has been washed in the river it is swathed in fair linen, white of scarlet, or, still more often, the shroud is of the sacred saffron color, on which is showered a handful of vermilion paint, to symbol ize the sprinkling of blood as the atone ment for sin. Sonfetirues the body is wrapped in cloth of silver of gold, and is laid upon the funeral pyre. Dry sweet grass is then, laid over it, and precious annointing "oil, which shall make fhe. flames burn more brightly, and move .wood is heaped on till the pyre is very liigh., . A Brahmin then brings sacred tire, rrrtd gives a lighted torch to the chief mourner, who bears it thrice or nine times, sun-wise, round the bodv. He touches the lips of the dead body u ith thtf Jioly fire. then . ignites the pyre. Other torches are applied simultaneous ly, and in a very few moments the body is burned, though the fire smoulders long. Then the ashes are collected and sprinkled on the sacred river, which carries them away to the ocean. Night and day this work goes on without ceasing, and many a weird funeral sn ne I have witnessed, sometimes be neath the burning rays of the noon-day sun, while my house-boat lay moored In midstream, to enable me batter to wit ness all the range phases of religious and social life enacted on its shores, and sometimes in the course of our night Journeying, when the pale moonbeams mingled with the dim blue flames, cast ing a lurid light on the withered, witch like forms of the mourners, often a group of gray-haired women, whose shrill wails and piercing cries rang through the air as they circled round the pyre in solemn procession, suffsret ing sonic spirit dance of death. When a body has been consumed, all the mourners repair to the river. beWaag their breasts and howHsar, and proceed to wash themselves and :heir clothes, and perform divers icremonies of puri ti' at on necessnry after touching a dead body,-;-CotUcntmrary iiYviVtr, USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE.

A Fluvanna County (Va.) farmer who rents out his land and manages his tenants cleared fourteen dollars an acre on his land last year. Waterproof clothing for excursions, when impervious to air, is apt to do more harm than good. The moisture from the body collects on the inner side, and is liable to be thrown back again upon the outer clothing in the form of damp. For this reason the wearing of waterproof goods that are impervious to air should be limited to brief emer gencies. N. Y. Times.

There is much labor lost in needless or injudicious or even Injurious artificial watering of plants, a fact to which th Tribune has invited attention for several years. The London Mark Lane Ex press has a timely and well-considered chapter on the subject, which yve trans fer to these columns as supplying the "line upon line " that seems necessary in agricultural journalism, both as re minder to the informed but forgetfid, and as neyv matter to the readers who are just beginning to take interest in the industry that supports all others: Daily morning sprinklings undei the influence of the sun which is increas ing in poyver every moment is yyorse than useless, as the rapid evaporation that follows lowers the temperature of the ground so much as to be positively injurious, and the very fact that the sur face dries so quickly proves to demon stration that the moisture is not appro priated by the plants or crops, but by the atmosphere. This is not exactly what is wanted: in fact, is the exact opposite, as it is for the plants, and not the air, that the moisture is intended. Watering to be effectual with outdoor crops should be done in the evening. There is little or no evaporation then, and consequently the crops have at least several hours to appropriate the moisture that is given, and to become re freshed for the work of the follow ingnlay. ' A sound rule in the watering of plants and crops is to wait until they require artificial support, and then to give it copiously. It is of no use apply ing yvater unless sufficient is given to penetrate to the roots of plants, and even below them. Numbers of persons are under the impression that they give Sufficient for this when, in fact, the water may not penetrate half an inch; it runs off the surface instead of percolat ing through it. This is sure to be the case where daily sprinklings are indulged in on the principle- of giv ing every part of the garden a little. It is far better to divide the garden into sections and to give eaah in turn an adequate sup ply, even if the whole be not saturated nTore than once a week. With the ob ject of assisting the water to pass through the dry surface it is often nec essary to break it up slightly with a fork, aud it is always desirable to run the hoe through the surface on the fol lowing morning, as soon as it is dry enough to be worked freely, as this yviii to a very important extent' arrest evap oration, and assist materially in the re tention of both warmth and 'moisture in the ground. "Our remarks apply to plants and crops that are established and not those that are immediately planted, which often need watering daily and sprink ling frequently to prevent withering; but even in the case of these artificial shade, yvhen it can be given, will be far better than the incessant use. of the va-ter-pot, Beds in which seed are sown can seldom be watered beneficially. If sowing must be done in dry weather, the proper method of supplying the requisite amount of moisture is to flood the drills before the seed is scattered in them, and then shade the surface until the seedlings appear. For instance, the present is the time for sowing pen, for the latest crops; colcworts, for occupy ing vacant ground after the early crops are removed; and canHflowers and let tuce for autumn use. Let the drills be first saturated, nd the seed xvill germ inate far better than if it is sown first and water given afterwards.

Y. Tribune A New Pass Over the Andes. The recent discovery of a pass across the mountain chain which divides Chili from the Argentine Republic may possi bly exert an influence, commercial and military, upon the future of South America hardly less important than that of the war in Peru, yvhich is now com ing to an end. This pathway has long been knoyvn to the Indians of the mountain region, but they have hitherto kept it a secret. For a distance of a thousand miles and more, the Andes extend between Chilian and Argentine territory, at an average ele vation of 13.000 feet above the sea level. When the dispute m regard to the pos session of Patagonia, a few years ago, threatened to bi mg the two republics to blows, it was seen that any war between them must be fought out at sea, the passage of the Andes by any openings then known being impossible against any hostile force. An Argentine armv, to maintain itself at all, would have needed to emerge from the mountains upon Chilian soil someyvhere near its Obfcictive that is to say, Valparaiso and Santiago, whMh are comparatively near each. other, and yvould be included in any plan of invasion. The practicable passes thus became limited to the Patos and the Cumbre; for those further north yvould not only give an invading army a dangerously long line of communica tion with its base; but are too difficult of ascent, and in some cases are ap proached over barren regions. The only pass to bo seriously thought of, in fact, was La Cumbre, which is almost opposite Valparaiso, or on the same parallel; and yet iLs height, its extreme narrowness for many miles, its contin ual windings and abrupt ascents, would make it defensible by a thousand good men against an invading army from either side. But the newly discovered Barilochi Pass, being near Lake Nahuelhaspi, puts an entirely new face on the ques tion of transandean communication. It is situated where the continent, narrow ing greatly, forms the peninsula of Pat agonia; it is approached easily across the pampas; and from the westernmost Argentine post at Nahuelhaspi, the dis tance is only a few score miles to the Pacific coast. The commercial importance of this pass, however, far outweighs all mili tary consideiations. The two enter prising republics have removed their only serious source of dissension by a peaceful division of Patagonia, and henceforth the one can pursue its de velopment as an Atlantic, and the other as a Pacific country. Both, hoyvever, have long sought railroad communica tion across the Andes from ocean to ocean. One such road, in fact, has already been undertaken between Bue nos Ayres, the capital of the Argentine Republic, and Santiago, the capital of Chili, designed to pierce the mountains by yray of Mendoza, through one of the passes already spoken of. The ex treme difficulties of this route have much impeded its construction: but a road starting from the Gulf of San Matias aud ejxissing Northern Patagoiia through the Barilochi Pass would, to begin with, have only half the length of the more northerly route, thus saving enormously in the original cost and in the running expenses; it would also traverse a region where the peculiar re lations of 'the mountains to the two oceans cause the storm to be usually of rain rather than snow, the route being in about fourty-two degrees of south latitude, and hence in a temperate, cli mate. The great drawback seems to be that it traverses a region infested with hostile Indians. Of course a most important considera tion is the exact height of the neyv pass; but since it is known that the Andes in Patagonia fall oft' to an aver age altitude a little more than half that of a few hundred miles further north, the route is certain to yield advantages in this particular. The explorations of military engineers, both Chilian and Argentine, will probably soon give exact measurements. N. Y. Sun. An Unnatural Mistake.

Several years ag the American public were aroused by the entree upon tue stage of a little lady who hSd been previously but little announced. She was one of an innumerable number of aspirants for pub lic favor and had no instrumentality, aside from her own talents, to cause recognition. In spite of this fact, however, she quickly achieved a warm place in the heart of the public which she has continued to hold ever since. When it was announced, ttierelore, that Miss Maude Granger would, star the coming season in the play " Hor Second Love," written by Mr. John A. Htevans, rt was only natural that unusual interest should be manifested not only in theatrical circles, but in other branches of the coin munity.. This was specially the case, as it was known that Miss Granger had, for the past year, bees in exceedingly delicate health, and the determination to star in a strong emotional play was the more sur prising. One of the staff of this paper was accordingly deputized to see the pengjar lady and verify the rumor or announce its incorroetnues. Miss Granger's countenance ia familiar to nearly every one fn the United States. It is a face once seen never to be forgotten. Features remarkable in their outline and contour are surmounted by a pair of large and deep eyes Indicative of the greatest soul power. It is easy to see where Miss Granger obtains the ability to portray characters of tho most emotional nature. She possesses within herself the elements of feeling without which no emotion can be conveyed to an audience. The man of news found the lady at br home in thia eity and was accorded a qulet'welcome. It was evident at once that she was in greatly improved health, yvhich the expression and color of her countenance both indicated. " Is it true, Miss Granger, that you con template a starring tour the coming sea on?" " Yes, indeed. My season begins in Chicago on the 1,6th of July. From there I to San Francisco and .then play the re mainder of the season through the Eastern and Western States." "Are you confident your health will per mit such an undertaking?" A ringing laugh was the first reply to this question, after which she said: " Certainly. It is true I have been ill for the past two years, but now I am wholly recovered. Few, people can have any idea of the strain a conscientious actress under goes in essaying an emotional part. -It is necessary to put one's whole soul into the work in order to rightly portray the char acter. This necessitates an utter abandon ment of one's perstmality and an assuinp- u" m ni'-a uimiiiuwi I'yruufeu. ii wis is an emo' -'ona! part it is necessary to feel the same emotions the part is supposed to feel. For more than a year I actually cried each? night hi certain passages of m part I was playing. The audience considered it art. Probably it was, but those were none the less real tears and the effectewas none the less trying upon my health." ti But do you anticipate avoiding this in the future?" " Not in the least. 1 expect to have just as groat a strain as before, but with re stored feealth and a knowledge of how to retain it I do not fear." " You speak of a 4 knowledge of how te retain health.' Will you please explain what you mean by that?" You must be aware that women by thetr very natures are subject to troubles and afflictions unknown to the sterner sex. The name of these troubles is legion, but in whatever form they may come they nro weaknesses which interfere with erery ambition and hope in life. I believe thou sands of noble women are to-day suffering agonies of which even their best friends and relatives know little or nothing, and when I reflect npon it 1 confess it makes me sad. Now all this misery arises large ly from an ignorance of the laws of life or a neglect to carefully observe them. I speak from the depths of a bitter experi ence in saying this, and I am thankful I know tho means of restoration, and hew to remain in perfect health." "Please explain more fully." "Well, I have found a remedy yvhich seems specially adapted for this very pur pose. It is pure and palatable and controls the health and life as. I believe, nothiue else will. It is really invaluable and if all the women In America were to use it I am quite sure most of the suffering and many deaths might be avoided." "What is this wonderful remedy!!" " Warner's Safe Cure." " And you nse it?" " Constantly." " And hence believe yon will be able to fro through the coming season successfully?" " I am quite certain of it." "A few questions more, Miss Granger. Will you pleafo give me a list of tVie parts you have created and the plays you have taken nart in since vour first aniwnranrA in public F' " I first played for somo time with the amateurs in 3fcw"Ynrk and Brooklyn. I then went t the. Union Square theater for two seasohs, after that to the Boston Globe for one season and then to Booth's theater in this city.
