She gives     out that by  sorcery and mafic    she can cast out  fox de\ils, in    which the Chinese are  prerfbund     believers,  can  foretell   events'   distinctly     and announce what  happiness br    misery shall befalh the  lot of others.  By the same "might magic," moreover,  like the  leaders  of the  Boxers,  she promises immunity to all hei sincere foi lowers fionv bullet or rifle or  thrust of spear, as well as lrom the  effects of water or fire.     The peoplo  are said to be deeply moved.   'Wealth  is , pouring    into   the coffers of   the  leadeis so that     they have  provided  themselves    with weapons,     and are  now being    jdincd  by large numbers  of banditti, of whom,  in every place  in China, there is  more than enough.  What    their     ultimate purpose is  does not    at first    appear,  but they  are laying in a     store of provisions,  and have so far  terrorized  their nei'  ghbors that many of the weell to do  people are fleeing Tor their, Hves ^d  seeking  safety     in'quieter  jjjstricts.  It is believed, however,  that  the incarnated fairy,     who appears in the  rorin of a     bearded  woirtan, is nothing more than    a man, who has as-  sumedtbis guise     for  the sake of secrecy and effect.
