The Chinaman, by inherent wisdom, tu perhaps by inspiration, discovepd that his mother's soul w;us in the lisli. After soine dickering lie bouglit tlie fisli, which weighed 300 j)ounds, paying $15 therefor, and procuriiig a wagon, transported it to llie bay, wliere he engaged a boat, )laced the íish therein, and had it rowed lar out into the bay and put bark into the water. He cculdn't beat the thought of having the soul of his mother devoured by San Francisco liailiarians."
