WHERE LANTERNS ABOUND. Japan if conceded by travellers and writers to be the most fajwrinating country of the Orient. The lanterns to be found everywhere form a quaint and interesting feature—stone ones, iron ones, and paper ones of every size. Thp. eaves of all build- ings are hung with small iron ones. On special occasions, such as the Feast of Lan- terns, the men carry large paper ones through the streets on the end of long bamboo sticks. At the Festival of the Dead, when departed spirit-? ore sujrxvv-'d to visit their families for a period of three days, their path from the tomb to their former habitation is brilliantly illuminated. The avenue leading to all the temples are lined with rows, sometimes double and triple lines, of tall lanterns. which stand also about the entire grounds Tn times when, the temples were rich' these lautcri-i, were lighted every night; now about sixty only at most temples emit their rays.
