Most of the great river cities of
southern and ' central China hare
such a "floating population," but
the boat dwellers of Shanghai and
Canton form large communities In
themselves. A trareler of sufficient
energy could laboriously progress
for miles by Jumping from the deck
of one sampan to another, t y : !'

ers, these river folk are race unto
themselves, apart from the common
ran of their, fellow men. In many
cases tbelr mode of life" bas been
banded down from, father to son
for generations, when China's teem
ing acres became overcrowded and
expensive, and a growing commerce
demanded river transportation In
eren larger volume, many ingenious
Chinese combined business ! with
economy and took to living aboard
tneir tmy craft
Although - business might call far
and wide along the numerous rivers
and canals It was the urge commer
cial centers at the mouths of mighty
streams that' offered the most lively
carrying trade. Hence these cities
early became headquarters for the
The rlverman often made long
voyages up country, but he always
came home to roost Hence the
dirty, evil-smelling stretches of
river and backwash surrounding,
such centers as Canton and Shang
hai, and eren around Hongkong
and Singapore, became tbe natlre
heath of an army of sampan dwell
ing Chinese, who from childhood
bare known no other life.
The risible means of support of
these communities Is the carrying
trade from wharf to wharf, and
from bund to steamer or Junk,
across river and up canals.
Some sampans house petty mer
chants and peddlers who carry on a
small trade In the necessaries of
life from boat to boat within the
water colony Itself. Occasionally a
craft Is filled to overflowing with
huge white ducks which 'fatten In
the daytime on the tidal mud flats
or harvested fields, and at night
walk a gangplank back to their
floating barnyard. They proceed,
one by one, In a quacking and push
ing single file, each hurrying not
to be the last duck aboard. The re
turn home in the evenings is some
times hastened, it is said, by giving
the last duck a sharp crack with a
switch. The awkward procession
soon learns the trick and a comic
tumult arises not to be the unfor
tunate tail of the procession.
Chinese sampans are marvelously
easy to handle, being the product
of generations of adaptation to en
vironment They dart like water
spiders here and there amidst the
harbor traffic, clustering like barna
cles around the great steamers an
chored offshore. With lightning
swiftness, they flee In droves be
fore an approaching storm, each
knowing as If by Instinct his own
place in the quiet reaches.
In spite of the shirting needs of
commerce, family life aboard pro
ceeds about its dally routine as
usual, albeit in rather more cramped
quarters. Clothes, regetables, and
babies are washed side by side in
the stream and the cooking is done
abore a diminutive brazierlike stove.
Growing children help with the
handling of the boat and cargo, and
grandmothers In blue cotton ragged
garments smoke long-stemmed
pipes. At night' all draw together
and neighborly chatter from boat to
boat sounds like that of a newly
arrived flock of blackbirds. The riv

There are two types of raft: one

and the other, large ox-hldes which
are stuffed with wool and then tied
up to keep them water-tight The
sheepskin rafts vary In size, accord

Intended, ranging from as few as
12 to 15 skins on tbe small one-man
