CHINESE WOMAN HONORED
Medal for Defying: a Chinese Super
stition About the Drowning.
Te Pat-mui, a Chinese woman of
Hong Kong, has received a medal for
bravery displayed during the great
typhoon of September 18 last. She
is the only woman who has ever been
decorated for signal bravery in the
history of the colony and probably the
only Chinese -woman who holds a
medal of honor presented by foreign
ers. Te Pat-mui won the medal simply
through not losing her head when In
danger. - She was on the waterfront
when tlje storm broke and she saw her
house swept away by the waves that
drove it from the outer harbor.
Instead of joining the mad rush
back to the upper lands, she stayed
just outside the zone of the floating
wreckage and busied herself pulling
people off floating roofs and directing
them to places of refuge. When most
of the Chinese water dwellers had fled
Te Pat-mui was noticed by the white
men who were doing rescue work
along the Hong Kong bund still busy
directing those of her race who came
drifting in to land where to go to get
out of reach of thp waves,
Along with the woman there were
four Chinese men who received sim
ilar medals from the representatives
of the governor of Hong Kong. Xhese
were two lightouse keepers, a fisher
man and a constable.
On January 19 the presentation was
made. The governor's administrator
gave Te. Pat-mui the favor of a spe
cial commendation. He heard that she
already had two sons and he gallantly
wished her the joy of another soon. .
"May the fourteen gods look over
your excellency," she answered, "but
the best wish that I can have is that
Jf I ever get in trouble with your hon
orable court you . will -remember, me
and be good to me." . -
Knowing the superstitions that con
cerns drowning persons, the English
citizens of Hong Kong marveled
greatly at the fact that five Chinamen
had been found worthy of medals for
saving people from drowning. The
Chinese ' popular rule is, if a man is
drowning let him drown. '
The accepted belief is that if one
drowns it is because the king of all
spirits so wills it and has ordained
that the soul of , the drowning man
shall join the throng on the other side.
If the one drowning is "rescued that
fact forever damns his prospects for
eternity and. what is worse for the
rescuer, the king of the spirits Is as
likely as not to take his life in pay

If you are fond of children, and they

known as "The Perfect Food," for
Malta-Vita is simply the whole of the
wheat and a little salt, thoroughly
steamed and cooked in absolute clean

malt extract, which converts the
starch of the wheat into maltose, or
malt sugar, an active digestive agent
and very nutritious as well.
