It is a mistake to suppose that the Chinese are, in the sense in which we understand the word, an educated race. This statement lias been frequently made by a number of authorities, but it is none the less erroneous. Educa tion is worshipped in China but not possessed. There are reasons for this anomaly, and they are important enough to be considered. In the first place, there is no public-school system, and the rates of tuition are moderately hig-h. Now what is the wajre of the worker? The common laborer receives about five cents per day; the skilled laborer, ten cents; and when employed in the artistic trades, twelve cents. Obviously, under these conditions, it is well-nigh impossible for the father of a family to provide his children with the most elementary education, especially as reading and writing in China are both means and end. There are forty thousand char acters in the language, and the present method of education is not conducive to their speedy acquirement. Even in the schools of Chinatown, where every thing is relatively more practical, chil dren who dare to put together in ra tional connection the characters they are being taught are subjected to tor tures worthy of the"J inquisition of the Scotch Covenanters. They are permit ted to ponder over the essence of the character for "dog" and the character for bite," but they are not allowed to put them together until permitted by the teacher. Four or five years must elapse before the student of Confucius even begins to read. What chance, then, is there for a child of a parent who is making from five to ten cents a day? The Chinese six companies frequent ly have occasion to paste up notices on the dead walls of 'Chinatown. These notices are intended to be read, and are therefore couched in the simplest lan guage. It is a curious sight to watch these worshippers of learning collected about the bill-boards. The writer has counted as many as a hundred, who, without uttering a word, have patient ly waited for hours, until the scholar happens to arrive who shall read aloud to them an announcement which, if written in English, would be intelligi ble to a ten-year-old American child. It is pathetic that a people who literal ly worship education should be so wholly debarred from it. A reverence for education is part of their religion. One of the interesting personages of Chinatown is the itin erant paper-scavenger employed by the six companies to patrol the entire quar ter. It is his duty to pick up every piece of paper bearing a written char acter. These pieces of paper are taken to the joss-house and burned according1 to the rites. Tradition, fable, custom, and the oft repeated ritual imperfectly supply the place of a popular education. Indeed, the poorest child is given what the Chi nese believe to be a religious education. The ceremony of "going through the door" is interesting in this connection, as It illustrates the solar symbolism, which is the essence of Chinese ritual. The "door" or "sun-gate" is erected in the middle of the room. On a table at the side are heaped up seven piles of rice, with a candle on each pile, recalling the modern birthday cake, with a can dle for each year of the child's life. The rice is in token of abundance, while the candles represent the seven stars of the "Bushel," or "Mother" Goddess. When all is prepared a Taou ist priest takes the young child in his arms, and, followed by the father and the rest of the family, solemnly "goes through the door" a movable wooden frame placed first in the center of the room, and afterwards at each of the four points of the compass. This cere mony is repeated on each birthday until the child arrives at the age of six teen, and the memory of it hangs over the Chinese man during all his life. For on his fortieth birthday it is cus tomary to take a common bushel meas ure, and to fill it with rice and such toys or implements as are significant of his capaeitj7; the whole is surmounted by a huge candle, indicating, perhaps, that the seven gifts of the "Seven Starred Goddess" are fused into the in dividuality of one ctrong character. At death there is that final "passing through the door" which leads to another life. In former times this was also acted out. This ceremony strongly suggests the extinct arkite ritual. The body of a deceased emper or or high official was borne through the streets on a "tafalque. Arriving at the temple, the coffin was taken through the entrance; but once within, enough bricks were removed from the side of the temple to permit the coffin to pass out in an unusual manner, thus symbolizing the resurrection of the soul. At childhood, middle ag death the thoughts of a Chinese and man are thus centered on his hope of immor tality. Henry Burden McDowell, in Harper's Magazine. . A Uttle Comedy mt Bromoo'i.

"I must confess I can never resist hatpins," said one grande dame.

"I think the only thing I am really stingy about," admitted a rich bachelor who is renowned for his hospitalities, "are matches. I always light over an old match if possible, and invariably row the servants if they buy too many." New York Tribune. Ffl'eet of Music on Animals. At the zoo the zebra, wild ass, deer and ostrich went into paroxysms of rage at the sound of the piccolo, although they had manifested various signs of pleasure over the violin and flute. The tiger was asleep, and refused to be awak ened by the fiddler and flutist. But when the man with the piccolo began to play the animal sprang furiously to its feet and rushed angrily up and down the cage, lashing its tail. So extreme was the beast's anguish that the piccolo man speedily gave place to the flutist. The difference in effect was at once apparent. The tiger stopped, listened, 1-y down and purred like a kitten in its enjoyment of the grateful sounds, and presently fell asleep in luxurious repose. London Spectator.

Macon, Ga, THE KEELEY INSTITUTE ! Twelve Years of Established Merit ! NOTE OF WARNING! TO TIIK PUIILIC: DwiOtHT, HI., April 30, 1892. As a matter of justice to ourselves and to the reputation of Dr. Leslie E. Keeley's Double Chloride of Gold remedies, for the cure of the liquor, opium, morphine and tobacco diseases and Neurasthenia, we warn the public that these remedies are used by no institution or sanitarium in the United States except those established by oua com pany under the uniform name of "The Keeley Institute." All others claiming to use our remedies are frauds and imposters. We have now sixty Keeley Institutes es tablished in various parts of the United States where the Keeley treatment is ad ministered and the Keeley remedies sold. We, however, caution all to examine well and know that the' are dealing with genuine representatives, authorized hy us, before taking the treatment or purchasing remedies. The fraudulent establishments use the name of "Bi-Chloride of Gold," or similar titles. The newspapers do not discriminate suffi ciently to know that they are imitators, and so put down all accidents occurring at such establishments as being brought about by the Keeley treatment. This is a matter of much concern to us, hence this warning. Respectfully yours, TIIK LESLIE E. KEELEY CO. Curtis J. Judd, Scc'y and Treas. The Keeley institute at Greensboro, X. C, is the only one in the state, and all repre sentations that there is in the state any cure that is identical with, or the same as, the Keeley Double Chloride of Gold Cure are malicious, false, and made for the purpose of deceiving. We learn with indignant regret that such claim is being made, and feeling that if it be hurtful to us it will prove more disastrous to those who are deceived thereby, we sound this warning.
