Photograph by A.Segers THE NATIVE CHINESE'S EQUIVALENT OF "ROOM WITH BATH" There are no beds in the small inns, only the kang, a stone bed hot on the surface. If a man is rich, hesupplements the mat bedding with the skin of a dog, a wolf, or a fox. The coverlet is wadded in the winter. The cushions used for pillows are filled with millet and arevery hard. While the queue has practically disappeared in many parts of China, it is still to be seen in country villages away from the coast.
