In the evening we went out and found a hol
low tree with a small hole at the but. frrnin

From here the party removed to the "nat

times called tho "pulpit niountaut." The
stupendous pile of rocks which has obtain
ed the name of "pulpit" has some rude re
semblance to that sacred place. After the
curiosities of the place had been examined
sufficiently, it was concluded that as the day
was the fourlh of July, Confucius should
make ah extempore speech not occupying
less than five nor more than ten minutes
whereupon he mounted the pulpit and spoke
as follows'. ,. it.-'
