A Present for an Artist. The Chinese adore music, but they are also passionately fond of musicians. Their infatuation of this attitude is carried to extremes which are not easily understood in our civilized regions. Thus it is quite normal to see Chinese harnessed like horses to a cab and drive their idol around town. An when a pianist has improvised variations more or less brilliant of the "air of moonlight", "Ah!... you will say... Mama" or "King Dagobert", they find nothing better to bestow on him than a sword of honour which is accepted with a coolness equally laughable, plate 23 from Voyage En Chine
An Addition to a Splendid Education. The young Chinese of the upper class don't only cultivate the art of the hunting horn, they also learn to give punches with the fist or the heels of their boots right into the pit of the stomach. This talent is called boxing with the feet and it is cultivated with the greatest success by all those who consider placing themselves on a good footing in society, plate 17 from Voyage En Chine

Chinese Talking Politics. Thanks to antiquity and the stability of the Constitution of China, this country is extremely unified... it counts only little more than 63 political parties. Quite often one finds Chinese citizens discussing vehemently on public places, using arguments they had prior seen in their favourite journal. Quite often the journal itself will replace the argument, being used as such, plate 20 from Voyage En Chine

Theater Plays in Beijing. The love for the theater in Beijing is reaching almost absurd dimensions, and strangely enough in all the plays it is about whether Mr. Alfred will marry Miss Josephine. There is no better proof for the stupidity of the Chinese people caused by opium, because they don't even realise that they see the same play every night and they stand in line in front of different theaters every day, worried that Miss Josephine marries Mr. Oscar without them attending the touching wedding ceremony, plate 27 from Voyage En Chine
New Year's Day. The Chinese, following an old and respectable tradition invented by a confectioner, never fail to begin the year by offering to all their acquaintances chestnuts and other small presents. They kiss each other with pursed lips, but would rather tear each other apart. On this memorable day in Beijing alone 300'000 kilos of sweets and 200'000 kilos of gingerbread will be devoured. No wonder that on January 2nd all the little Chinese have a colic. But who cares.... next year they'll be again filled up with the same colic enhancing stuff always under the pretext of "traditional duty", plate 25 from Voyage En Chine
