I A BUDDHIST'S DEATIL
WEIRD CEREMONY OBSERVED
AT PASSING OF PRIEST.
Old Ting Ho-Sheng Died Bitting CP and
Was rut Into nks Coffln and Hurled
That Way I'tllows Code Eaeh
It Is an exceedingly rare thing for
a foreigner to be permitted to witness
tho death of a Buddhist priest, and it
was only after a residence of nearly
twelve years in China that the oppor
tunity came to me, says a writer in
Leslie's Weekly. Old Ting Ho-Sheng.
head priest of the "Temple of tho Spirit
of Light," I had known by sight for
several years, and had a more Intimate
acquaintance with him the summer he
died, but I did not expect to be a wit
ness of bis death nor to see him die
sitting up. Not only did "Old Ting"
dlo sitting up, but he was put into his
coffin and buried that way. Disease
and native treatment had already
placed the seal of death upon the old
man, so that at my second visit I could
only tell the attendants that his hours
were few. Returning to the old priest's
rooms a little later, I found him sitting
on a broad stool facing the outer door,
clad in his fine priestly robes of yellow
silk. Being long past consciousness,
he was supported by his attendants in
this position, with hjs legs crossed,
each foot resting upon the opposite
thigh, sole directed upward an ex
ceedingly difficult, and, in fact, almost
impossible position to assume in Ufa.
The hands were placed, palms together,
up before his face, the whole attitude
being that which represents Buddha
In the state of Nirvana and the old
man was very near that state. The
great anxiety of those in attendance
was that he should not be placed In
his coffin until he was really dead. Al
though I could not bring him back to
life, they were willing that I should
Judge when he was dead. Holding a
small mirror In front of his face, I
waited until there was no more mois
ture deposited upon It. In the mean
time preparations were continually
going on around me for further c:ra
monies. A largo pile of paper "cash"
had been placed outside the door, on
top of which was a document I was
not allowed to se, but, from wbit I
could learn, was his iyatory as related
to his ucctssloti to the priesthood and
life In It; Upon being pronounced dead
a flaming torch was applied to the
"cash" by a young priest, former disci
ple and now successor to tho lands
and buildings of the old man sitting
before him. No sooner was the papor
well ablaze than the young man pros
trated himself before it, bumping hi'j
head on the ground the requisite num
ber of times, for every movement In
every ceremony of the Chinese la reg
ulated by rites as Inflexible as law. The
next step in this strange death scene
was the placing of the body In its up
right coffin. The front and top were
removed and yellow silk cusions put in
the bottom, on which the old man was
placed as gently a3 possible consistent
with the awkwardness of his position.
Numerous small cushions and wads of
thin paper were put In around him, a
pillow under each elbow to sustain the
arms In their upright position, and
then the front was slid into place. More
packing was done from the top until
his body was immovable and the coffin
filled, the yellow silk knot of his hat
being the last I ever saw of old Ting
Ho-Sheng, who will sit and wait until
time and decay do their work in alter
ing his position.
A Frea?er's Vrl'onmen.
. A few weeks ago a noted minister
went to one of the local railroad sta
tions to meet a friend, says a Cleve
land paper. Upon entering the station
and looking around he saw an elegant
ly dressed woman, who apparently was
about to board a train.
She was carrying a number of par
cels in her arms, and besides had with
her three of four children that with
great difficulty she was trying to help
along. The clergyman approached the
lady and offered his assistance, which
she accepted, afterward thanking him
very graciously for the kindness. The
train moved out of sight, and he went
on his way thinking of the endless op
portunities one has for doing good,
when all at once he discovered that he
was carrying a beautiful silk umbrel
la with pearl and gold trimmings. The
reverend gentleman Is now enduring
distress of mind, fearful that the vic
tim of his absent-mindedness may
some day discover him in the pulpit.

Compelled to Previa' Their Own Boose
While at the Capital.
Iowa governors have followed- va
rious plans In providing themselven
with homes In Des Moines during their
official terms. Gov. Larrabee occu
pied a frame house near the state
house, says the Sioux City Journal.
It was not very large and rented for
about $50 a month, the sum which the
state allows to tho governor for house
rent Gov. Boies lived at the Savery
house, occupying a small room when
he was in town, and when he went out
of town over night he gave up the
room the same as any other transient.
He never entertained. Gov. Jackson,
who lives In a comfortable but modest
home in this city, met the demands
of his position socially in a very pleas
ing manner, having the assistance of
a wife who was very capable and suc
cessful in discharging the duties of the
governor's wife. Gov. Drake lived at
the Savery House, where he occupied
a parlor and entertained to some ex
tent Gov. Shaw has filled the posi
tion socially, as well as in other re
spects, to the complete satisfaction of
all demands. He succeeded when he
came here in renting a good furnished
house from a family that wa3 going to
spend a year In Europe. During the
last legislative session Governor anil
Mrs. Shaw occupied the Pratt house
on Grand avenue. Since then they
have lived in the Victoria, the new
Hubbell apartment house. Governor
and Mrs. Shaw have entertained lib
erally and have taken more part In the
society of Des Moines than any pre
vious governor except Gov. Jackson.
All these experiences prove conclu
sively that no man can afford to be
governor of Iowa unless he is wealthy
and has an independent Income. Gov.
Shaw would probably not like to tell
how much It cost him to maintain tho
governor's office. Ho urged that the
salary be increased for the sake of his
successors, 'because it is wholly inade
quate to meet the" most unavoidible
demands upon the man who would
maintain the dignity of the position.
Gov. Jackson declined a second term
because he found that he positively
could not afford to retain the office any
DIET FOR HEALTH.
Eating Such Food as the Family Dactar
Most people who are not in good
health know In a general way what
alls them; some of them know what
kind of food they ought to eat in ord:r
to overcome their bodily Infli'ir.l'ks
and prevent a recurrence of them. Bit
pcoplo who have good health usually
consider only their taste or their psck
etbcok when they order a meal. Aa
experiment whieu one of the Boston
hotels is making shows that o!he:s Le
nlde invalids are beginning to under
stand that it is important to have ths
right sort of food as well as to have it
properly cooked. The cafe of this
hotel provides not only a bill of fare,
but a diet list made out by a physician
and Intended as a guide to the patrons
of the hnuse. It prescribe s the food
best Eiilted to various physical condi
tlr,ns. To the fat man it offers a va
riety of dishes that tickle his palate,
and at the same tlrno check his ten
dency to grow fatter. Tho thin and
anaemic can procure the things which
make blood and tissue and build up an
enfeebled system. The new way of
looking at the food question puts
health first and preference afterward.
It considers the needs of the Individ
ual, and makes practical application o.'
the old saying that "one man's meat
is another man's poison." It tries to
make the (Met .ike a w;U s'.o:ked ward
robe, offering plenty of variety, yet
designed for and fitted to the person
for whom It is intended. Lilac is a
charming color, but the red-haired girl
does not need It to enhance her pecul
iar charms. Sirloin steak is a tooth
some and desirable thing, but melons
and coarse bread may be better for the
full-blooded man who has a tendency
to rheumatism. How ono can lit his
diet to his own nee(!s Is a matter which
the physician can best decide. It Is
certainly easier to preserve health by
tho use of proper food than to regain
It by taking medicine; and the pre
scription filled In a restaurant is pleas

A Tlniliop on tllcycle.
A tlnshop in a wagon has been a
common sight on country roads for
years. It Bcemcd as if there was no
Jimlt to the amount of tinware the ped
dler could store Into the many open
ings and "cupboards" In the great
boatlike vehicle. But the bicycle may
take the place of the old tlnshop wag
on. By means of It, thanks to modern
invention, the peddler can now travct
much more quickly and at the same
time have his wares on exhibition. Tho
new vehicle, however, in point of
steadiness, Is perhaps better ndaptcd to
city ue than to the country. Extend
