En 1893, La Valeur De L'or Augmenta Considerablement Et Egala 28 Fois Celle De L'argent; En 1894, 32 Fois; Au

Commencement de 1895, 33 fois; mais il baissa un peu et a la fin de l'annee il valait seulement 30

Fois plus." (Pierre HOANG, La Propriete en Chine, 1897, p. 43.)

XXVI., p. 432.

CH'ING SIANG.

Morrison, Dict., Pt. II, Vol. I., p. 70, says: "Chin-seang, a Minister of State, was so called under the Ming Dynasty." According to Mr. E.H. Parker (China Review, XXIV., p. 101), Ching Siang were abolished in 1395.

In the quotation from the Masalak al Absar instead of Landjun (Lang Chang), read Landjun (Lang Chung).

XXXIII., pp. 447-8. "You must know, too, that the Tartars reckon their years by twelves; the sign of the first year being the Lion, of the second the Ox, of the third the Dragon, of the fourth the Dog, and so forth up to the twelfth; so that when one is asked the year of his birth he answers that it was in the year of the Lion (let us say), on such a day or night, at such an hour, and such a moment. And the father of a child always takes care to write these particulars down in a book. When the twelve yearly symbols have been gone through, then they come back to the first, and go through with them again in the same succession."

"Ce temoignage, writes Chavannes (T'oung Pao, 1906, p. 59), n'est pas d'une exactitude rigoureuse, puisque les animaux n'y sont pas nommes a leur rang; en outre, le lion y est substitue au tigre de l'enumeration chinoise; mais cette derniere difference provient sans doute de ce que Marco Polo connaissait le cycle avec les noms mongols des animaux; c'est le leopard dout il a fait le lion.
