Example text

In the providence of God the merchant, too, loved children, and here she found a home. Though there were already two boys and a girl in the family, the couple took the spirited little newcomer to their hearts and brought her up as their own child. When she was six, according to the almost universal custom, her adoptive mother began binding her feet. By this procedure, the toes were balled under the sole and the as yet unossified heel and tarsus forced together, the bindings being tightened daily to withstand growth and hobble her for life.

In this, Foochow was behind the times, for elsewhere China had entered upon great industrial changes, with textile factories springing up in the coastal towns, railways probing into the interior, and foreign engineers diligently exploiting her mineral resources. It was perhaps in Watchman's sixth year that the family returned to Foochow, and he was nine when revolution broke upon the country to sweep away the dynasty. We must pause for a moment to view the world in which he grew up. At that time the Viceroy of Chekiang and Fukien provinces, in his residence in the old city, was but a subject of Manchu overlords represented by the Tartar general and his indolent Bannermen who occupied, with their heavily painted womenfolk, a special quarter within the walls.
