the battlefield If- tlft. defeated did not
wish to fall alive iiro tliu hands of ths
euemy, they thrust their swords into
their mouths or their breasts or crt
their own throats Later tiie hara-kiri
became an institution of honor. Who
ever knew his cause to be lost either ex
ecuted himself with bis sword or allowed
his companions to do it for him. It
often happened that when a feudal lord
had performed bis self execution his vas
sals followed his example to show their
loyalty beyond the grave.
BIB Mr.HOBY CNETAINED.
My mother, who was a Japanese of
rank, ofien related to me a case of hara
kiri which took place not so many years
ago in lier on family The noMe-nn,
occupyingagovernineiitoffice, bad killed
bis bitterest enemy and was sentenced to
the hara-kiri. If be bad not belonged to
the caste of warriors they would either
bave beheaded nun or sentenced him to
be nailed to the cross, which would have
brought dishonor on his family, besides
resulting in pecuniary disadvantages
The bara-kirt. however, attached no dis
honor to him or his mejnory. The con
demned man was committed to the sur
veillance of a nobleman in whose man
sion the solemn self execution was to
take place. Day and hour were a)
pointed, and the witnesses elected by
the government arrived Thecoudernned
man had bgg"d three of bis friends to
render him the last service and they con
sented Subordinates called on the prisouer to
tetl him of the arrival of the witnesses.
They brought bun robes of hemp on
tray. Ue donned them quickly and bnr
ned to the reception room of the palace,
where the sentence of death was read to
hint. The prisoner listened to it without
moving a featurn. Then be retired once
more to his chamber to change his dress
for the last tuna Attired in white
robes, be was led by a solemn procession
to the room wbeie the self execution was
to take place. A large cotton cloth was
spread on the mats. Over this a scarlet
quilt was laid to prevent the blood from
oozing through the mats. It was al
ready dark and a candelabrum, giving a
faint light, was placed in each comer
Behind two while screens a pail, a wash
basin, a censor, a tray and a short sword
lay hidden. According to prevailing
rules, the persons present stepped Into
the semidark room and took their places.
Then the duties of the three assistants
of the pnsouer began. The Brt brought
him the sword on a short legtrod table,
the hilt being wrapjKrd in paper. The
prisoner received the weapon with rever
ence, lifting it with both hands to bis
forehead to expn-ss his esteem. Then he
Imd it back on the table and bowed to
all present. He let his npper garments
fall down to the lit-it. and -tnflod them
Dimly siidcr hi knees to prevent him
from falling backward, which is looked
on as a disgrace. Then, while with a
firm band be seied the sword, and with
a quick movement cut np his stomach,
the second assistant, who stood on bis
left side, with one fierce blow severed
the bead from the trunk. Alter render
ing his fne nd thm terrible service he re
tired behind the screer.s, drew some
white paper (rum ms belt and wiM.d

grasped the head by the tuft of hair and
presented it to tne principal government
witness to show that justice bsd been
fully satisfied This was followed by
deep silence. All present retired quietly

OT FOB THE MIOOIK.
in 1869 a private secretary to the privy
council proposed the abolition of the
hara-kiri Two-thirds of the depnties
were against the proposition, and in the
spmchea bold on that occasion they
praised the institution as Indispensabie
to preserve the honor of the aristocracy,
and as a spur to morality and religion.
The man who advanced the proposition
was, as was expected, murdered not long
Of course all Japanese do not share
the opinion of those deputies. In the
last change of government when the
shogun, completely defeated, had no
other alternative than to flee to Yeddo,
one of his councilors advised nun to
have recourse to the bari-kiri aa ths
last means of saving bis honor and that
of bis family The shogun ridiculed
the advice and left the room in a rage.
The faithful councilor retired to an
other part of the palace aud disetu
bowled himself in proof of bis earnest
ness. The slfogun U still living and en
Joys a fat income.
So much about the essential charac
teristics of the bari-kiri. The changii
which this old national custom has nn
der:;on cause the particulars concern
ing it to be somewhat contradictory, by
the introduction of a new code of laws,
the bari-kiri has been abolished ajidoiily
noblemen, who still believe In the tra
ditions! code of honor of their ancestors,
may select it as a mode of death. O
