Khing-C hu-F u, Empress of China, was doing her hair when her maids who, on their knees witnessed the delicate operation of artistically arranging the imperial hair of her majesty, burst into cries of admiration scarcely repressed by the etiquette of the palace. What is the matter i Khing-C hu-F udeigned to ask, turning her head. A h, lady !exclaimed the maids in a chorus. Brahma has deigned to favour you with a sign of his protection. And what is that in inquired the empress. A silver thread which appears amidst your beautiful hair. That is to say I have a white hair. So it is called amongst simple mortals, but in theD aughter of theS un they are threads of silver, to which poets spontaneously sing verses under the penalty of being quartered like dogs. Let the seers and astrologers come at this very moment. I must know what this foretells.
