The baby was taken to the temple escorted by a procession at the end of which was a servant carrying the child's wardrobe, the size and richness of which indicated the social standing of the parents. When the temple was reached a paper was handed to the officiating priest, upon which thiee names were written. These names were copied on three separate slips of paper by the priest who then put them into a box and shook them together, at the same time offering an invocation to the gods. Finally he would draw out one of the slips and read out the name given to the child, as it was believed by the gods. Custom Getting Obcolete. This custom is. according to Con sul General Miki Saito of this city, rapidly getting obsolete. In the large cities it is not practiced at all but in the remote parts of the empire the common people still cling to the old custom. The custom of changing a person's name on different occa sions has. been stopped by the Jap anese government, however. It was customary to change a per son's name as he passed through different periods of life. When he at tained his majority, which was for merly at the age of 15, he got a new name. When he began official life he got another new name, and every time he rose a degree in his career his name was again changed. Thus it would be a wise parent that knew its own child. Celebration of Baptism. At present all of this is different. When a child is born his name is registered in the register's office and in the census bureau. His baptism is made the cause of celebration and gifts are sent to th'e child from relatives and friends but no temple ceremonies take place as most of the enlightened Japanese do not now have much to do with the Shinto or Buddhist temples. The name is nev er changed in any place of the empire except of course in case of adoption or in the case of a woman when she g'ts married. The age of majority has also been changed to 21 years as in other countries. Compulsory Education. Attendance at the public schools has also been made compulsory and every child in Japan is bound through the law to go to schpol when it at tains the age of six years. Thus the quaint and picturesque costumes of old Japan are rapidly failing away under the sway of the government which looks to progress and has very little' sympathy With conserva tism. While the decay of the quaint charms of the old fashions may cause a regret to the foreigners and tour ists who visit the country the Jap anese themselves are doing away with all such customs so rapidly that, the nation will soon be similar In all its customs aud government to tho countries of the older civilized nations .
