A People of Simple Tastes. Rome Cor. San Francisco Chronicle. 1 The Italians arc simple in their tastes, frugal and easily pleased. The low prices of the refreshments they consume enable1 them to satisfy their desires at the ex pense of a few cents in an evening. At the cafes they take a cup of co lee, sip a glass of wine, or eat an ice. Their self indulgence seldom extends any further than a bottle of wine of the country, which costs from 10 to-20 cents. For the cup of coffee or the glass of wine they pay at the best cafes 5 cents, and for au ice 10 cents. A glass of cardial may cost a cent or two more. If the evening is warm, the tables in the iuside rooms are empty and those on the pavement f ulL They tranquilly sip the diHerent beverages they have ordered, interchange compliments with the ladies, placidly discuss the newspapers, which, small and badly printed, seems to appear at all hours, and abiut 11 o'clock go souerly home with their wives, sisters and daughters, it the night is sultrier than usual, they remain a little later. The excitement, noise, gesticulation, and wrangling so common in French cafes are never seen in those in Italy. Kven so im portant an ocfurrence as a change of ministry produces only a subdued ani mation in the groups discussing it. It is not because there is no iuterest felt in pxiblic atlairs, for there is. indeed, a pro found interest, coming from a genuine love of country, but it is the way in which a people, naturally gentle, refined, and wellbred, shows its feeling. In observing, from day to day and evening after evening, this unexcited mode and movement of existence, one comes to wonder where is the riin which strikes all this tire, or whereabouts in the anatomy of such a people is the deadly impulse which inspires the stiletto, the poisoned goblet, and shows itself so en during in the vendetta. No one can know the better class of Italians .without liking them, in spite of the absence from their character of some of those deeply seated and enduring iiualities which have hcen the chief source of the greatness of northern nations. Doing tlie Kow-Tow. San Fraiiei.se. Chronicle. The kow tow ceremony, as witnessed by a reporter one day recently at a Chi nese temple on Waverly Place, will bear description. The gardian of the temple was just sounding a barrel-shaped drum suspended from a wooden framework. Having evoked a few dull, rolling sounds, he wakeued the echoes by pulliuera mass ive bronze bell hanging underneath. Then taking the sticks of incense, he placed a mat on the Moor before each Idol, on which he knelt, first bowing down with hands joined, and then raising them above his head like the priest ele vating the host at mass. He then performed the kow-tow, which consists of knocking the head against the lloor six times before minor idols and nine times before major gods with great rapidity and violence. The .Mongolian devotee fullills his religious task with no half-hearted zeal, making the lloor vibrate again as he introduces his had to it The thought would naturally occur that this would be rather trying even to an opium -befogged Chinese cerebrum; and parsing near the worshiper as he rose from his task, it was noticed that he had on the top of his head a bulging protuber ance as largo as an average fist the result v of frequent and vigorous kow-towings. fhis must have become perfect by callous, s iu response to a query on parting the Justodian remaiked that the frequent bumping was the cause of no pain or un- rpleasantuess. superiority ot American Tools.
