Photograph by C. D. Jameson A FORM OF FISH NET IN USE THROUGHOUT CHINA The frame works on a hinge at the crossed uprights in the water. The long arm running to the right is raised and the net sinks below the surface, to a suitable depth. When the fisherman who works the long arm feels that he has reason to think that some foolish fishes are over the net, he pulls down the arm, raises the net, and with a small scoop net lands any fish caught. About nine times out of ten there are no fish caught. Photograph by C. K. Edmunds FISHING IN THE WEN-HO The highway from Yenchow to Kiifu crosses the river by means of this broad stone causeway, in which several arched openings permit the passage of the stream and afford the Chinese disciples of Walton facilities to enjoy the sport to their hearts' and stomachs' content.
