consists of nearly 12,000,000 square miles,
J / and as Asia occupies one third of all the land of the
globe, you must not expect to see it all in half an hour.
Think of it, the population of Asia is 825,954,000, to which huge
amount China gives nearly one half! Of
course among such a vast number of
people, inhabiting such a large portion
of the world, one must find all kinds of

world have gradually grown better and better and more civilized,
with the consequence that they have caught old China up and
passed it Japan is one of those countries that caught up China
and passed it, and when Japan went to war with China a few
years back, the great Chinese Empire with its population of 400,000,000
inhabitants could do nothing against the smaller country and had
to give in.
The head of the state of China is also an
C Emperor, but unlike the Emperor of Japan, he is
not a wise man, and does nothing to improve his
people, while the taxes are very heavy, and so the
people fear, without loving and respecting him,

When we come to India we
feel more at home, for the Indian

Empire belongs to England, and
the Emperor of India is no other
than the King of England.
England acquired India by the sword
and has had to hold it by the sword,
although happily, to-day, the natives
of that great and beautiful country,
are, with very few exceptions, most
loyal to their Emperor. The population
of India is 268,696,960, three-fourths
of which are Hindus, 50,000,000
Mahommedans, and over- 2,000,000

a very dangerous sport, but Englishmen love

SAsia, it is justly celebrated for its beautiful
carpets and rugs. The King of Persia is

SWe are now coming to the end of the
~ book, but before saying good-bye we must
mention Afghanistan and the Afghans. Afghanistan is a wild
country inhabited by wild and brave tribes that at various periods
have given considerable trouble to India, troubles that ,
have not ended without fierce wars.
The Afghans at present are peaceful, and
are wisely ruled by their Ameer.
Naturally in such a huge
extent of countries, as in Asia, a
great number of curious animals
are to be found, but I think

Sherbet spoons

the best known are the royal tigers of India
and the elephants. Then of course there are

many terrible reptiles including the deadly
cobra whose fearful bite means nearly always
certain death.

The Eastern oxen too are very different
to their western cousins, as can be seen from

the last illustration in this book.
