Pootoo: A Christian Pilgrimage to a Mongolian Mecca.
. On th. extreme eastern .eabonrd of
Chin., not many hours steam from tho
ancient and prosperous oity of Ningpo*
lies a group of islands, known as the
Chusan Archipelago, which' havo more
than a local reputation. As the haunt
of a numerous and formidable band of
pirates, whoa, depredations extend—
tor they still carry on their nefarious
trade—along a considerablo sketch of
coast, southward and in a lesser dogroe,
up the creeks and rivers of the moro
northern provinces, the group has an
unenviable notoriety among Chinese
sea-faring men; while it is equally famous among d.vout Buddhists as embracing the beautiful isle of Pootoo, a
ploc of pilgrimage to which thousands
of devotees are attracted yearly, more
especially during the months of January and February, towards the close,
that is, of th. Chines, year. But Pootoo is famous not only among the
Chinese. It has. favorable reputation
as a sanitarium among the throe thousand foreigners whom Fortune—some of
them would say Miss Fortune—has
compelled to settle down, in quest of
tho elusive dollar, on th. banks of the
mighty Yang-tae and its tributary,
tbe Hwang-pu. The foreign settlement of Shanghai furnishes of course
the largest portion of visitoreduring lhe
summer season, but from the various-
riverine ports—Chinkiang, Kiiikiimg,
Hankow, and othors of less importance
—and from the adjacent city of Ning-
po, come numbers of mon, delicate-
looking ladies nnd children, in quest of
the cooling and health-laden breozos
whioh stir the beautiful groves of the
sacred islo. July and August ore the
months whioh count the greatest number of foreign sojourners on tlie island, but many families commence
their pilgrimage early in June, and a
formidable undertaking it is, for everything needed during the stay on the
island—badding, furniture, copkmg-
uten.ils, and provision,—has to bu
taken along. The only accommodation
to be had in the way of lodging takes
the. shape of a temple, overy building
on the place being either actually occupied or owned by tho priests* Of
these there aro usually Homo Llifoo
hundred scattered among innnniorublc
temples ami nionnstei ies, tiiou'gli in iii.-
early part of the yeai' tut many isii,o
thousand uro said to take part in the
'religious cermoutes winch attend a-
immense a cmcourso of pilurims. Oi
' these latter,'by far tlio largest' proilor-
tion ar. of tho sterner sex. Until
within the last few years, indued, uo
woman was allowed to set font on the
island; and even now, so far as the
writer is aware, the only exception made
is in favor of native amahs, or uursus,
accompanying foreign families.
Thero ore two methods of reaching
Pootoo—by native boat from Ningpo^
a todious and not oltogothor safe mode
of conveyance—and by steamer from
Shanghai direct. This latter method,
however, can only be availed of during
two or three months of the year, and
then more, perhapsthrough thecourtsey
of the Chinese, steam-ship company who
own the line of vessels running as fur as
Ningpo, than from any profit they
make out of th. business. This company is known as the China Merchants'
Stum Navigation Co , and is in reality
• govornment concern. It is conducted
by a board of native merchants, at the
hud of whom is an able man, Tong
"     lino, who received his edt   "
in. the
King Sing, who received his education
in. the English High School at Singapore, ana was for many years head
oompradore, or cashier, with tho famous
firm of Jardine, Mathoscn and Co.
The China Merchants' Co., as it is
famillary called, possesses a largo Hoot
of powerful ocean and river steamers,
th. latter u large as any to bo found on
American inland waters, and built on
th. urn. principle. Thos. an employed in the Yang-tse River trade, and
Eroooed as far up that mighty stream as
chang, a distance of a thousand miles
from th. seo. The ocean steamers are
also vary One vessels, and mak. connections with every treaty port on the
China tout, from Kiung-chow on the
Island of Hainan, in th. far south, to
Niu-ehwang, in th. province of Siting-
king, which adjoins Coroa, iu the ex-
tram, north. Distant some hundred
and twenty miles south of Shanghai
stands th. oity of Ning-po, which has
already bun mentioned u a place of
some Importance and th. point from
which the pleasure-seeker bound to
Pootoo must take his departure. Th.
compsnys' stumers, during the ordinary suson, proceed no further than
this point, but during the months of
July and August, and sometime, later,
th. Saturday trip from Shanghai is
...tended t. th. island sanitarium, to
the gnat convenience, more especially
of th. European paterfamilias—all foreigners in th. East are spoken of as
Europeans—who avails himself of the
opportunity to catch a glimpse of his
family, and at th. same time secure a
few mouthfuls of fre.h air, a scarce
article in muggy, sweltering Shanghai
during th. summsr months. This was
the mod. of conv.yance ssttled by a
party of whom th. writ.r mode one,
which had naolved on a visit tn th.
famous archipelago. Liko tho family
immortalised by Wordsworth, wo were
HV.n. It was my first visit to the
islands, but th. rest had made annual
pilgrimages for years past, sometimes by
steam-launch, som.timu by pilot-boat

VOLUME 24
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. 0., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1883.
NUMBER 27
but iiBimlly by the Bteamer we were
about to journey in, the Kiaug-teen, a
tine vessel fitted up mainly, of course,
with, an efe to native accommodation,
the amount of foreign travel between
Shanghai and Ningpo befog inoonsider-
able. Sho hod, however, a fife, spacious saloon, with state-rooms for about
thirty first-class passengers. iOn the
occasion of our trip these were more
than filled, several members f of the
sterner sex who had proven dilatory in
securing their passage having to content themselves with such accommodation aa was afforded by a settee, or a
cot strung in a ccol and secluded spot
on the main deck. The Snanfthai mos-
quitos having fortunately failed to bo-
oure passage, and the journey being a
brief one, this was a matter lather for
congratulation than otherwwtfethe state
rooms offering anything but'favorable
conditions for sleep, packed as thoy
were with so many perspiring specimens
of humanity, tine arrancem-wts for
the trip weie as follows": The Kiang-"'
toon was to cast off from the Kin-lee-
yuen wharf at 6 p.m. of Saturday1, and
proceed direct to Ningpo, where Bhe
was due at six ou the following morning. After discharging her freight of
Chinese passengers and goods, she was
then to proceed to Pootoo. which aha.
was' expected to reach about noon on
Sunday, Here she was to remain
quietly at anchor until tho following
morning, when she was to return to
Ningpo, and after a stay of a few hours,
giving sufficient timo to sight-seers to
take a peep at tho city, once more head
for Shanghai, where she was duo at
daylight on,Tuesday- morning. Such an
arrangement offered an excellent chance
for an outing to tliose whom business
firovented the taking of an extended ho-
iday, and the majority of the excursion-
ists were of this category, only the
ladies aud children of the party—of
jrhom there were about half a dozen,
all accompanied by their native nurses
—looking forward to a protracted stay.
At the hour appointed, all the intending holiday-makers being assembled on board, tho steamer cast off
from the wharf, and commenced to
thread her way through the throng of
shipping of all nationalities, British,
French, Amorican—the latter greatly
in the minority, I am compelled tu
Btato—Gorman, Chinese, Siamese, and
Japaueso; amongst them ninny tine
vessels, the huge mail steamers of the
"P. aud 0." and tho Messagoiiea
Maritimes companies attracting particular attention. The sun had already
loBt much of hia - power, and ob we
steamed past the beautiful publio gardens of the English Concession—once
an unsightly mud-bank, and reclaimed
by the municipality at considerable
expense ■— numbers of gayly-dressed*
promenadera were to be seen, engaged
in conversation, or listening to the
strains of the Manila Band, in institution also supported by the municipal
council, which provides frequent open-
air concerts. Tho gardens and tho
hniK.jome and stately foreign "hongs"
or business places of the Bund were
SLtickly loft behind, nnd the mouth of
to Suo-chow creek paused.- -Then
came into viow the American Concession; on the oppostto, or Porting,
shore, the ^-extensive ship-haili ng
yards of Boyd & Co. being alao ■« suable. Past the Unite)' Stato I insulate V- ueral-j ■■ ith f:- a -L

answer to our salute, LS-we tlit- quickly
past with the swiiilj'-ebbing tide;
through long rows of British "soa-
t ramps," ubiquitous nnd money
getting; past the British navy yard,
an immense establishment which has
recently boon closed and disnoscd of;
past "Tho Point," whither tired citi-
zcus wend their way after tho labors
of the day, in brougham, buggy, nnd
jinricksha, or on horseback, to cool off
on tho verandah of "mine host" Sil-
vert home's water-side inn, and gaze
on the swift and muddy waters of the
Hwang-pu; past.all these, and a great
many moro interesting sights the
statoly vessel ploughs gallantly on; the
masts-and spires of the "Model Settlement" disappear from view, and the
substantial-looking dwellings of the
Chinese fanner, standing amid tho
bright green fields of waving rico,
heave in sight and as quickly disappear again. Half way down the
river wo pass Gough Island, a considerable tract of land formed by deposits of mud loft by tho eddying river,
nnd whioh a dozen years ago nad no
existence, but is now cultivated and
sottled. "Tho Heaven-sent Barrier,"
as tho bar at tho mouth of the river ia
liously termed by tho natives—a
langorous and annoying obstruction—
ia safely crossed, and tho lights of
Woosung begin to appear. Tho forts
on the banks of the stream at its am-
bouohoro into the mighty Yang-tse
looking very formidable in tho misty
twilight. Out into the yeasty waters
of tho "Child of tho Ocean" wo pass,
aiid the vessel's head is turned towards the sea. The Yang-tee at this
point is several miles in width, And
by reason of opposing and treacherous
currents, and the comparative shallowness of the water, navigation becomes moro and moro difficult. Our
pilot ia a man of experience and judgment, however, and directs the vessel's
courso amid the mazes of the Tungsha
Banks with admirable skill. Tho
welcomo sound of tho dinner-bell is
now hoard, and the saloon is quiokly
filled and tho important business of
refreshment receives attention. A
couple of Hours having been consumed
at tho table, au adjournment is mado
on dock. By tins time darkness haa
fallen, and the night threatening fog
and perhaps rain, the saloon Ib onco
moro sought; without any feeling of
disappointment, however, at tho change
in tho weather, sinco thero is nothing
to be Been of the coast until the
mouth of tho Ningpo river is reached.

The Hamilton (Ont) Antes thinks
that the present season will not be
favorable to Candian farmers genet'
allj. The wheat crop, it says, is
considerably below that of last year,
smd there ia no probability of high
prion either. Supplies of wheat
from India are more plentiful than
usual, and the Knglish warehouses
are full. If Canada lias a short crop
with low prices the effect may lie
very serious. When the purchasing
power is small among farmers, all
industries suffer. There have for
some time been rumors of an approaching commercial stringency. A
short time ago the cotton factories
were pnt on short time because the
supply had gone beyond the dcumnd.
The number of financial failures, too,
has been increasing tliis year; and
altogether the prospect is not reassuring. A shortage in the wheat
crop, and a consequent curtailment
ot trade, may go far towards precipitating commercial disaster.
Entered toe Pool.
It is no secret that great expectations were entertained respecting the
Northern Paoifio Railway. Those
who find it necessary to patronize
the other two transcontinental railways have found the rates exorbitant, and they looked for relief to
the Northern. It was confidently
expected thnt this road would keep
independent of the pool, and bring
tho tariff down tn a reasonable
figure. But these expectations have
been nipped in the bud. Before the
road has been fairly completed the
announcement goes forth that the
Northern Pacific has joined the pool,
and that froight aud passenger rates
will be the same as those of the Central and Southern. There is to be
no competition, no relief from the
monopoly. Tlie Northern agrees to
deliver gooda at San Francisco for
the'same rates as the other railways,
and tho Central and Southern agree
to deliver them ut Portland at same
rates as tho Northern. This pool
arrangement begins at once, and continues at least till the end of 1884.
Whether it will be extended beyond
that period or not depends upon
whether the pool works to the satisfaction of the companies concerned.
For the purpose of establishing
healthy competition the TT. S. government made very liberal land
grants to the Southern Pacific Bail-
way, But that road, when finished,
very soon formed a pool with the
Central, and there competition came
to an end. The Northern was
heavily subsidized by the same govornment for a similar purpose. Now
the Northern does exactly what the
Southern has done, and the three
railways become one grand monopoly.
There iB one hope left yet for the
people of this coast. In two years
the Canadian Pacific will probably
be finished. The importers of San
Francisco are looking forward hopefully to that event because they have
an idea that the opening of the C.
P. K. will cause a decline in rates.
We hope it may, but we aro afraid
it will not. The C. P. B. unfortunately is not a government road. It
belongs, or will belong, to a private
syndicate who have all along manifested a desire to monopolize everything that could by any possibility
interfere with their interests. The
C. P. B. syndicate have just aa great
an ambition to make money as any
other railway company. If they
find it to their advantage to join tht
railway pool, they will undoubtedly
do it. No patriotic motives will
prevent them. We hope the C. P,
B. will remain independent, however, and will make a tariff that will
leave nothing to be desired.
tention to the common mistake of
somo people who bring nothing to
the show because they have nothing
whioh they consider worthy of a
prize, Suoh a polioy, if generally
adopted, will be certain to lessen very
materially the success of tho exhibition, and in many caws it will
bring regret to those who pnnue it,
It is a very common thing for people visiting an exhibition to discover
in many departments articles quite
inferior to those they left at home
as unworthy of the show. Bring
the very beat yon can find; But if
you have anything even fairly good,
bring it along. It will materially
add to the exhibition, and who knows
bnt it may carry off a prize as well,
But the motive whioh should govern
all exhibitors is' higher than that of
personal gain.
" Breathes there n man with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath Bald,
This Is my own, my native land!"
We do not believe the people of
British Columbia are wanting in
patriotism, nnd there has, perhaps,
never before been presented an opportunity when they could better
bring into public notice the resources
of the conntry. Aside, therefore,
from any consideration of prospective
prize money, it is to be hoped tho
people of British Columbia will take
some trouble to make the approaching ahow a fair and creditable exhibit of the agricultural capabilities
and resources of the province. Let
every district,' every settlement,
every farm be represented by the
best available products. Thero are
many strangers now in the province
looking for lands and other invest-
ments. These people will be vory
apt to attend the exhibition for the
purpose of learning how and where
they may most profitably place their
energies or their money. Those
neighborhoods which are not represented, or which are badly represented at tho show will lose an excellent
opportunity of advertising thom
selves, and may thus escape the notice of persona who, if they became
residents, would add materially to
the resources and revenue of the
community. It is expected there
will be a large attendance from all
parts of the province. There will be
buyers and. sellers of produce, stock
and manufactures of all descriptions.
It will be a grand provincial market
day, as well as an exhibition, Persons who havo anything to sell will
find an opportunity to sell it j those
who wish to buy will find plenty
from which they maymakeaselection;
and those who can neither sell, nor
buy, nor exhibit, nay with profit
examine the collection which represents the industries and resources ot
British Columbia.

Ex. Gov, Gibbs, of Oregon, attorney
for the Puget Sound and Canadian mil-

the pastfewdays. The Governor represents a syndicate of New York capitalists who are seeking investment in the
Puget Sound country, and have incorporated with a view to building a line
of railroad from Whatoom to New Westminster, provided sufficcnt inducements in the way of liberal donations
of land along the proposed route can be
obtained. With thia object in view
representatives of the company will
canvass the country between Whatcom

the road will be contingent upon the
donations offend. Surveys will be
made in the very near future. The
company do not propose to tie up the
title to nal estate for an indefinite

time which the road ia to be built, and
if not built within the timo prescribed,
then all contributions will revert to the

Stealing a Crave I
Wo have heard of stealing nil sorts
of things, even to a corpse The following dialogue, between a certain
undertaker in this city and the gov't,
agent, was overheard on Columbia st.
ene day last week, and brings to light
a species of theft hitherto unheard of:
Undertaker.—Who buried Don-
Ian?-
Gov. Aot.—I don't knew. Who is
Donlanl
U.—The man who was drowned at
the wharf.   Who buried him!
G. A.—OhI I suppose it was the
gaoler. ,
IT.—And who paid for the funeral!
G. A.—The expenses of the coffin
wen paid out of money found on his
person, and the work waa done by some
of the chaingang,
. U,—But they have stolen my gravel
G. A.—Stolen yonr grace! How's
that?
U.—Why, I had a grave all nady
dug in the cemetery arid they went
and put Donlan into it, and when I
sent out the next corpse a new grave
had to be dug.   I shall expect the
corner house, occupied by Chinamen,
waa built by the Royal Engineers in
1868, and used by them as a survey
office and storehouse. The house north
of this was the old guard room. It was
built of logs, in 1868, and is said to
have been the 'first house erected at
Sapper'on—before the dense forest of
fir and cedar which stood on New Westminster oity site had been, interfered
with. When the colony bad beon divided this building waa used as the government printing office.

On the following morning everyone
was astir betimes, and as all had enjoyed a sound and refreshing sleep, the
sea having, fortunately, proved calm
throughout tho night, the whole company were in excellent spirits. The
morning broke bright and beautiful,
and promised a lovely day. A light
haze hung over trie waters, obscuring
the coast-Tine from view, but now and
then the veil of mist would lift an reveal a glimpse of the beautiful islands
we.had come to visit. Just as the sun
began to ahow his face over the edge of
the watery horizon, the fog cleared,
and we had a splendid viow of the
islands aid the country lying about
the mouth of the river, whioh we were*
about entering. Aa at Weosung, we
found'the onterance obstructed by a
large fleet of salt-junks, guarded by
mandarin tax-boats—quaint structures,
gaudily painted and bo-fagged—and
tiny gunboats propelled by oan and
carrying in the bow a solitary piece, of
about the calibre of a good sized musket. On the left bank ia situated the
town or city of Chin-line, which is surrounded by a substantial wall, and protected by a number of forts. During
.the war between China and England,
theae were invested by tho latter power,
after a stubborn defence, and the guns
now surmounting the bastions are probably tho very ones that dealt out death
and destruction to the invaders a generation ago.
No stop was made at Ohin-hae, and
we sped quickly along, in momentary
prospect of running down and swamping some of the numberless frail sampans, propelled by screeching females,
that made a point of darting right under our bows, as though with the very
object of getting themselves run down,
that they might olaim compensation,
a trick peculiarly Chinese, and by no
means uncommon. No object of interest was visible along the banks of the
stream, with the exception cf a number
of thatched *' godowns" or warehouses,
in which were stored supplies of thin
and filthy ice, gathered from the sur-
-     •   "el,
government to pay me for that grave.
The G. A. retired reflectively, and
ia probably still considering whether
the undertaker has a lawful claim on
the government for that atolen grave.

Laldlaw's Cannerjr Burnt.
101113TIMTE0 AT ABOUT 100,000.
Shortly after 0 o'clock laat Mondsy
night flames wero seen issuing from
Laidlaw & Go's, cannery, at Sap-
perton. The alarm was at once given,
and a messenger despatched to this city
tor assistance. In a very abort time
after the fire boll began to ring, the
engine and hose cart wen on their way
to tho conflagration. But the distanco
ia fully a mile, and before the firemen
arrivod the whole establishment waa
enveloped in flames and beyond all
control. The tinmen at once took in
the aituationand directed their energies
towards saving adjoining property. A
ahort distance beyond the cannery ia a
wharf upon which atands a small warehouse when were stored 1300 esses of
salmon. This was saved without difficulty. Between tho cannery and the
road stood Mr. Laiillaw'a own residence and thne or four buildings
occupied by his Chinamen. Theeelaa-
tiala gathered up their worldly goods
with wonderful promptness and packed
them off to safe places, while many
willing hand, assisted Mr. Laidlaw in
mnnving llio furniture and effects from
his dwelling. The contents vf all the
buildings, except tlie cannery, wen
saved, but some uf thoni wore much
damaged by removal. Thu only building saved un the road was Mr. Laid*
law's residence. It was ut one time-
hoped that the others might be kept
from the flames, but the heat from the
burning cannery becamo so intense
that the best efforts of the firouien
could do no mors than okeck thefleroe-
s of the blaze. There were In the
cannery 4000 cases of salmon, worth
at lout 190,000. These were entirely
lost The cannery was 300 feet long,
part of It 30 and part 60 feet wide.
It contained a considerable quantity of
machinery and all appliances for the
business of canning fish. The loss, Including fish, ie roughly estimated at
tromjW-.OOQ to 170,000. Mr. Laidlaw
was insured, but does not yet know to
what extent. It Is probable tho insurance amounts to about (60,000. At
ene time the fence round the penitentiary grounds caught fire, but it waa
quickly extinguished. Tho tinmen
worked well, and ao did many ef the
eitiaens; and we must not omit to
mention the Indiana, who atood at the
breaks manfully. This fire blotted out
some of the auoiont land marks,   The
rounding rice fields, for consumption by
the good people of Shanghai. Yes,
there was ono other object that excited
Built, attention—a hue;* Krupu flun,
apparently of considerable value, which
lay on the muddy bank where it had
landod perhaps a year ago, exposed to
the action of the atmosphere and the
ebb and flow of the tides, whioh reaohed
and covered it day after day. Such
la China I
Less than an hour sufficed to land
the couple at hundred bustling Chinese
passengers with their multitudinous
bundles and blankets, and tbe freight
that had been brought down, and the
vessel's head was once more turn seaward. The equanimity with which one
is said to hear the misfortunes of othen
received practical illustration as the
steamer steered off from the landing-
stage. A respectably dressed Chinaman, evidently bound for Pootoo,
reaohed the pontoon just in time to aee
us leave, and the way that unfortunate
individual danced about the stage and
leaped into the air, " ohin-chinning"
the steamer, and as long as it remained
in view, beseeching it to come back,
afforded intense amusement (a strict regard for truth compels me to state) to
his more fortunate fellows, Poor man.
It was a serious matter for him; for
he must either wait a whole week for
the next steamer, or charter a email
junk for his special behoof, a costly
proceeding. Wo soon left both him anil
the city behind, and glided down the
diity river—ell the rivers of th* north
are muddy—passing three largeOhin.se
gun-boats, of foreign construction, and
sighting a canal which was cut by the
British during the war. ' We were
again forcibly struck with the enormous
number of -ice-houses liuing the banks
of the river, and after listening to a
description of the method employed by
the ice-harvosten to secure tlieir crops
which consists in flooding, during the
•inters, the manure-saturated rice flats,
and garnering the thin flakes uf ice forming on them—we began to understand
the nlation of the germ theory nnd
the oholora question among tho natives.
On reaching the open, the sea was
found to be beautifully calm ; as it was,
indeed, during the whole trip, one of
the greatest drawbacks to all marine
excursions, saa-sicknesi, boing thus happily escaped;
Leaving on our left a rocky islet surmounted by a modern lighthouse, and
en our right another, topped by a moss-
grown fort, wo shaped a course for the
Sacred Isle, passing through a perfect
labyrinth of islands, large and small,
which, though mostly flat, were green
and inviting. Thia was, the captain's
first trip to Pootoo, and realizing the
difficult nature of the'taak of piloting
his veasol through such a maze et islands, he had wisely seoured the services
of nn experienced Ningpo pilot, under
whose watchful can the excursionists
safely passed through the archipelago,
and reaohed the sought-fur island,
It woe close on the tiffin hour when
the Bteamer dropped anchor, which she
did in deep water, some forty-five fathoms of chain being paid out. The heat
had become oppressive, and it was unanimously agreed to postpone our landing until lunch had been partaken of,
and the aun'a rays had lost a portion of
their fervour. It wu just u well thnt
this deoislon waa arrived .at, for the
vessel hsd hardly boon brought to an
anchor befon indications of an approaching storm began to make themselves manifest, and In a startling brief
space of time thick clouds overspread
the heavens, and a terrific squall of
wind, accompanied by blinding shoe's
of rain burst over the vessel. Bythe
time the tiffin wna over, however, the
nin had ceased and the wind fallen.
The sky once mon became urene, and
the atmosphere so cool that it was resolved to land at once, instead of waiting until towards sundown, as had-boon
intended. The ship's boats were called
away, and a number of the passengers,
provided with towels and other necessary bathing gear, took their scats and
were conveyed to the shore, some of
tho lady passengers landing later on,
to indulge in a stroll over the island.
The landing-place iB not a particularly
good one at the best, and at low tide a
considerable expanse of muddy beach
is laid bare, at the mouth of the little
cove where excursionistMmially stepon
.shore. Little inconvenience was however experienced in landing, and the
iarty turned their steps toward the
arther side of .the island, where the
bathing grounds are-situated. On the
way up, a party of sad-looking European
missionaries, were noted seated on a
wall overlooking the sea. It was understood that they bod been rusticating on
the island for about a month, and were
to be joined by another band who had
como down with ub, but who. on account of its being Sunday, deoliued to
land 1      .
The path for some time loy upward,
but the ascent wu an easy one, and the
road good, a smooth causeway of hewn
stone leading from tho landing p'ace'to
a divide which if not the highest, point
on the islandd's lofty enough to afford
the sight-seer an excellent idea ef Ub
topography. Here the priests had, in'
times remote, erected a rough gateway
of mud. This was in no wise a remarkable structure, either in point of beauty
or in massiveness, but it served tho excellent purpose of a frame or setting to
the beautiful-land and sea scape on
either aide of the island, whioh, with
its help,, wu seen to the best possible
advantage. Here the party halted for
a few moments, in order to do justice
to the view. From this point the road
began to descend, and the scenery
became more varied and beautiful.
Nestling down in the heartof the valley,
on tho left, lay a olustor of temples,
while away in front were the low hills,
covered with verdure, beyond which
were hid the cool, sequestered beaehes
in search of whioh the pleasure-seekers
had come. When near the foot of the
bill, the party halted to inspect a couple
ef curious stone tablets, whieh stood
by the side of the road, embowered in
shrubbery. They bore inscriptions in
Chinese, andinanother language which,
it wu understood, had bo far proved
undecipherable. One of tho party
hazarded the opinion that thocharacters
were Sanscrit, and this conjecture
seemed to carry a certain amount of
weight from the fact that the Buddhist
priesthood in China and Japan aro possessed of a rudimentary knowledge of
tliiB father of languages, of which they
avail themselves in' the way of furnishing posthumous titles for inscriptions
on tomb-stones. Others of the company, however, declared that the memorials had boon examined by learned
men of various nationalities, who had
confessed their inability to expound
their' meaning. And so the matter
rests. The writor doos not pretend to
any intimate acquaintance with the
languages of the eutern continent, and
cannot take upon himself to settlo the
vexed question. While perusing a recent number of a scientific journal,
however, he wu struck with the remarkable resemblance of the characters in
they had been—wore compelled to
forogo tho exciting delights of a
scramble up tho steop, slippery, weed-
clad rocks, for. the perilous pleuure of
being wasliod yards away by somo
thunderous breaker. "Oh, the inorry
days of youth!"
On tho way back another path wu
c-ioson. Tins lod to a snjall bmlding,
formerly used ub a tomplo, but at the
timo occupied by fishermen in the om-
ploy of tlio priests. Tliis wu famous-
for its woll of clear, ice-cold water, to
tlie virtues of whioh the attention of
the pilgrim wu called by a Btone bearing on inscription, in Chinese, of
courso. It is called the Gonu'B Well,
and. it is believed by tho devout tliat
a draught of Its cool,- crystal waters
confers the gift of longevity. On
learning thia, every member of the
company of course made a point* of
Indulging in a good, long draught!
Near by, in a dilapidated temple, were
a largo bell -and on enormous drum,
the latter certainly twelve feet in diameter, nnd giving out when struok
perfect thunder-peals. The bell is
without a clapper, and is struok, as all
bolls aro in the Far East, by means of
c. kind of battering-ram of wood, shod
with iron, slung by ropes on one side,
at a suitable height. Some idea of
its great size will be gathered when it
is mentioned that tho combined
strength of two able-bodied men wu
required to bring out its full tones,
which reverberated, it seemed to us,
all over the island,   and well-nigh

The -hour fixed for the return to
Ningpo on the following morning was
seveji o'clock; but, early as it was,
quite a number of those who had made
tne tramp across the island on tho
previous1, evening resolved on being up
with the lark, in order to havo one
more dip in the briny before making
for homo. As early as five o'clock,
then, tho wholo of those who had
already paid their respects to Father
Neptune* with some others, tumbled
out of bed and ashore. As it turned
out, thero was plenty of time to get
over to. the beach and indulge in a
dip. Such was tho enthusiasm of
some of the swimmers that a mere
dip would not suffice them, but they
must needs make the circuit of a point
of rooks which separated the bay they
were in from another—equally convenient, but not in such favor—to the
left, winding up with a genuine wallow
in a fresh-water runlet which emptied
out of the lotus-pond aforementioned,
'some half mite distant.
On tho homo-stretch, a number of

countenance that would insure them
a speedy hanging in a civilized country.

A short walk down hill brought the
sightseers to tho main group of temples, to reach which it was necessary
to crass a pond filled with lotus—the
plant sacred to Buddha, on which he
is usually represented Bitting, in the
attitude of meditation—in various
j-tagea moro or less approaching maturity. The temples themselves were
not particularly striking. Years ago
they were no doubt beautiful, but they
now present a dilapidated appearance,
and aro being allowed to'fall "into decay. Only one of them contained anything worthy of inspection—a gigantic
idol, at least twonty feet high, and
ten in circumference. It was in a sitting posture, with the limbs crossed,
a la Turque, and appeared to be com- <
Ksed or plaster or papier-macho,
avily gilded. An adjacent building
contained a number of wooden carvings, muoh tarnished, said to represent
the punishment of evil-doers in Hades.
The island abounds with shrines and
temples, somo of them of considerable
size and containing hundreds of gilded
idols; but neither in point of architecture or decoration are they worthy
of note. In the summer season they
are, however, largely availed' of, by
both foreigners and natives, as well as
by fleas and other objectionable insects, as lodging-places.' , Four years
ago no less than forty Europeans,
from various ports on the coast and
the Kiver Yang-tsze, were temporarily
domiciled oh tho island at one time.
It is a favorite sanatorium with European missionaries, who come to it
from all parts of China, and stay threo
or four months at a time—at the expense of the .pious people in homo
countries, of course. At tho timo of
our visit, the weather was delightfully
cool, and as a rule the temperature
throughout the summer is always considerably below that of tho mainland.
We found thero' were already a number of peoplo from Shanghai settled
down for the summer—among them an
educated Chineso family—tho head of
which was a mandarin, who had accepted the doctrines of Christianity.
Thoy wero accustomed to entertain in
tho western style, their homo in tho
eity being a' favorite visiting place
with U. S. naval officers. Ono of the
daughters was accustomed to dress in
European fashion; and married a
Dane, the commander of a Chinese
revenue cruiser. Tho youngest, a
damsel of sixteen, was a charming littlo creaturo, even in her hideous national dress. Tho whole family spoko
English with perfect fluency, and understood other foreign languages, and
played aud sang.
On leaving tho temples, the party
mode for a small village, the road
leading to it, as elsewhere throughout
tho island, being lined with beautiful
shade trees, - and paved with broad,
smooth blocks of granite. The hamlet contained not mon* than a couplu
of score of dwellings, most of them
stores for the sale ot tho holy picturon
and vosarios, and wm an uninviting
place. Passing this, the smul-banks
topping tlie hunch wore quickly reached,
tho sight of the sen leading to a race
along the hard, whito strand to a
shady nook in the rocks whioh afforded admirable facilities for tlie preliminaries necessary to bathing. How
joyous was the prospect! Tho bright,
blue sea—such a contrast to the leaden
colored Hwang-pu, that ono hod been
accustomed to gain on every day for
years—camo frolicking in On tho
smooth stretoh of hard sand, with just
enough of surf to offer inducement to
a tussle with it; nhd, sooth to say,
little timo was lost by tho bathers in
availing themselves oi tho invitation
il oxtended to them I Old and young
tumbled and splashed about in the
e'ear, oool waters with unbounded
delight, and it was with tho greatest
rtluotanco that somo of tho party at
least—fellows not quito so young as
loose, puce-colored robes. One of tlie
excursionists, an English youth of the
genus hoodlum, insisted on their partaking tif a "morning," and on tneir
declining, proceeded to administer a.
doso to ono of the party by the operation known to youth in castor-oil days,
to wit, by closing the patient's noBe,
ond( pouring down his throat the objectionable liquor., Ho looked terribly disgusted," and no wonder, and
as wo passed on we could not help conjecturing how many years of penance
he would liave to perform, in order
that he might ho purified from the

tlie Buddhist commandments.
Ten minutes later, the party had re-
embarked, the anchor was "home,"
and the. good steamer was once more

It excites expectoration and causes the
lungs to throw off the phlegm or mucous;
changes the secretions and purifies the
blood; heals tho irritated parts; gives
strength to the digestive organs; brings
the liver to its proper action, and imparts
strength to the whole system.    Svou is
THE  IMMEDIATE  AND  8ATISFACT0BV EF*
feot that it is wan-anted to. break up the
most distressing cough in a few hours'
■time, if not of too long standing. It is
warranted to otvk estike satisfaction,
even ix the most confirmed cases of Consumption! It is warranted not toproduce
costiveness (which is the case with most
remedies), or affect the head, ns it eon-
tains no opium in any form. It it warranted to te perfectly harmless to the most
delicate child, although it is an active
and powerful remedy for restoring the
system. Then it no real necessity for so
many deaths by Consumption, when Alum's Luso Balsam will prevent it if
only taken in time. Physicians having
consumptive patients, and who, having
failed to ante them with their own medicines, we would recommend to give Allen's Long Balsam a trial. A by all

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
'•Bat how shall J thank you? you
an ao very, very kind," and 1 held out
my hand.
"By always thinking of me. when
you waar it; then, as no went down-
at&irs, "Hy mother wore it on her
wedding-day. Now I am suro you will
Value it more."
Herwald and Dudley wore in high
spirits as they went along, and I oould
aot help beine infected with their gay-
■ity, and Herwald w»b in the middle of
an anecdote when the carriage drove
through the lodge gate, and in another
minute stopped at the hall door.
The powdered-haired footman (I was
glad Herwald did not have his servants)
lo disfigured) wanted to hand me over
te a jaunty-looking French maid, hut
Herwald aaid, "No need," and with
Aia own hands relieved mo of my shawl.
giving me at the same time a Bweet reassuring smile; and offering me his
arm, took me in.
Thereat the ond of a long, lofty
room, sat Miss Rivers on her couch of
state, who welcomed mo graciously,
and Herwald and Dudley warmly.
Bhe looked really well in her black
lace with coral ornaments, but I Bhould
have thought it better taste to havo
worn a quieter dress, especially as no
one was to meet us.
"What makes you so late, or rather
punctual to the minute 71 said come
at six."
"Pardon me, but I could uot disturb
this infatuated angler," said Herwald,
coolly; "it would havo been cruelty,
I assure you, Miss Rivers;" and then
Mr. Rivors entered, and after a few
words of polite greeting took me in
to dinner.
Miu Rivera followed ajp-ith tho two
gentlemen, walking between them in
a regal manner, and in the same way
she monopolized .them both throughout the whole meal, dividing her words
and. emilei between the twain, though
I knew where the bluo gray eyes
looked moat often.
For myself, but for Mr. Rivers'
kindly, attentions I should have been
very dull; but he started some interesting topics of conversation in which
I could readily join, and though we
did not find as much to laugh at as
they seemed to at tho other end of
the table, I was not ill-amused.
Now and then Herwald or Dudley addressed me by name ond
aaid some pleasant thing across the
table, but Miss Rivers never followed
up their remarks, and if some general
aubjsot were started, let it drop to the
ground; which was discourteous in so
young a hostess. The first time she
really turned to me of her own accord
was, when she gave the signal for
rising; Herwald oponed the door, and
aa I passed gave me a pitying smile.
When we reached the drawing-room,
though there was no fire, Maud Rivers
marched up to tho hearth-rug as was
her usual custom, and I meekly followed her. Standing thoro she turned
her haughty eyes on mo, and quietly
looked me over; and I am certain not
a single point, good or bad, escaped
her scrutiny—hair, eyes, hands, all
passed under review; then Bhe drew
up her tall figure to its utmost height,
gave a swift survey of herself in tlie
opposite glass, made a mental comparison disparaging to mo, and then said
coldly—
"Won't you Bit down, Misa Mortimer?" and took the corner seat of the
couch opposite to the ottoman to which
•he had waved me, and paused her*
1    self some time in silence., (
"Do you paint?" she said nt length,
somewhat abruptly.
"Not the least, Mies Rivera, but I
hear you do."
She put the question aside as not
worthy of comment.
"Do yo play harp or piano?"
"The latter a little, but I am no
musician."
"Sing then?"
"My voice has never been properly
trained. I leave all the accomplishments to my sister; she both drawe
and plays beautifull \"
"Then I suppose you read a great
deal?"
"Alas! I rarely open a book; a
leisure hour is a rare treat to me."
"Why what on earth can you find
to do?" was Miss Rivers'next question,
arching her eyebrows inqusitively.
"We are a large family," I said,
"and I am the eldest and the house-
kteper, and I have mauy children to
work for."
Miu Rivers smiled disdainfully, and
evidently looked at me in the light of
an inferior person,
"Sou teem to be very friendly with
Mr. Delorme.!'
1 felt her cold eyes on me, and
answered hotly—
"Of course, Herwald is my adopted
brother."
"Ah," she replied swiftly and with
marked emphasis, "ah, 1 dare say yon
have an elder-sisterly feeling towards
him?"
I was silent, attributing thia idea
to my staid demeanor.
"Why don't 70a advise him," she
continued, "to go into parliament?"
he hu great abilities,"
"True, but hut health will not bear
it; his doctors have recommended rest
and a quiet life for some years to
"Oh, that ia nonsense," ihe said,
sharply; "there ii nothing ails him
but nil lenelineu and morbid feelings;
I saw it abroad; you who are nil
friends should recommend him to
settle, nancy, enter into publio Wo,
tako Us position In the county in fact."
"Oh, f thought to.myself, that lsl
what you aro aiming at, but I would'
rather see him in his grave than you
his wife, Maud Rivers.   I made ani-
"Yes, rather," I observed again,
wearily.
"Then you want to go home, you
ungrateful girl?"
"Not before yot; are ready, pray."
• "Well, we must endure an hour's
music first, or Miu Maud will never
forgive mo;" and then he walked off
to the tea-table, where he remained,
but Dudley brought his cup and stood
by my aide.
"Why have I never been invited
into the studio?" uid Herwald in an
injured tone; "out of revenge because
ws outbid your father in the Guido?"
Miu Rivera laughed and looked
flattered.
"Oh, no, my only reason is that T
want you to sie my picture complete'I.
and to give mo a candid criticism."
"Nearly finished, is it Maud?"
"Yes, papa, I have only a few days'
work."
'What iB the subject, may I uk?"
'Dido's funeral pile."
'On my honor, Miss Rivers, you
are bold to select such a subject; it
will want delicate handling."
"I am delighted it is nearly finished," observed her father, "for
Maud is putting all her color into the
picture, and I nover plan a ride, drive,
or visit, but it is 'Please, papa, I must
finish this figure, or put in this piece
of drapery.'" •
"Miu Rivers was very good then to
spare me a few hours on Saturday,"
said Herwald quietly; sho colored.
"Papa exaggerates dreadfully; shall
we havo some music now ?—aud sitting
down to her harp she mado Herwald
accompany her on the piano. The effect was very good. Maud Rivers
showed herself to be on accomplished
harpist, and when they had played two
or three pieces, her father begged fora
vocal duet, 'and they sung somo
Italian and German sungs together.
Herwald had an agreeable tenor,
and though Miss Rivers' voico
was thin and iuferior in quality, sho
made up for it by tho excellence of her
training.
When they had finished, Herwald of
his own accord sat down and sang a
Spanish canzonotte so sweetly and
melodiously, that I could not help
whispering as he rose—
"You ahould sing that serenade to
tho lady you deign to woo; it would
certainly win."
He laughed and answered mischievously, but I dared not pursue
the joke, for Miu Rivers was watching
us closely.
"Don t you sing, Miss Mortimer?"
sho , observed, with nn attempt at lira-
oiousness.
"Like a nightingale," answered Herwald, gayly; "I have a vivid remembrance of Bonnie Dundee, and Auld
Robin Gray; but you must excuse her
to-night--(how kind nf him to shield
me so)—and now, my fair hostess, 'the
way iB long, the night is cold,' though,
by-tho-bye, 'the minstrel is not infirm
and old," and thanking you for your
kind entertainment, you must permit
myself and friends to withdraw.
"Nonsense; it is only eleven."
"Did I Bay it waB twelve ? you have
no basis for your argument; I have
quick ears, and I know Zephyr and
vixen nro stamping their hoofs this
moment at your gate."
"You are so ridiculously careful of
your horses; they shall bo put up if
you like."
"Thank you;" replied Herwald,
quietly taking her hand, "you are very
kind, but we cannot bo late to-night.
I suppose Miss Rivers Knew of old
that it was useless to dispute Herwald's will, for sho Baid nothing, but
bade us good-bye, scarcely acknowledging my parting thanks, and then to my
groat relief the carriage door was shut
upon us, and the horses went off at
full speed. Herwald was. silent all
the way home; but as we drove up
the nvenue, he said:—
"Wu are sure to find a fire somewhere; I'declare It feels quite chilly

"Yes, sir," opening the door of the
chintz parlor. How cozy it looked
with its bright blaze and soft wax-
lights! Herwald took off my shawl,
planted me into the easy chair, holding me a moment to look into my
face, and say, "You poor little tired
white lady;" and took a low stool at
my side.
"How delicious and homelike!'1 I
said, as I leant back nnd closed my
oyes.
"You have been wretched this evening Nellie; you have not enjoyed
yourself a bit; I am so vexed!"
I made answer wearily, that it was

"Nay, I saw how it is was,*—then
abruptly, "well, what do you think of

"1   think .her rather handsome."
"What a term to apply to Maud's
