Other minor strains are traceable but unimportant.The Chinese of the North, are by no means of the pure stock of the race of Han. Whole nations of Tartars ha\ e been lost among them, absorb-ed and Chinacized, and that at a time when the Chinese were not so numerous and the Tartars were iniuimerable. Just as the Southern Chinese are so much aboriginee that no one of them can say to what extent he is Chinese, s«) the northerners are so mu(;li Tartar that the Chinese in them is little more than a leaven. There was a time when it was the practice of the early Chinese Kmperors to bring in whole armies of

Then the Toba, the Kitan, theJu-chen, the Mongols, and the Manchus, each in their turnmoved bodily into China and became for the most partChhiese. The present ra])id absorption of the Manchusis an object lesson in the race-building of the past in thenorth. The Manchus, or at least those who still have thedistinctive physical characteristics of their race, aredistinguishable to a close and familiar observer, but tothe casual visitor they are as much Chinese as any otherblue-gowned celestial he chances to meet. The women,however, still wear a garb and a head-dress which aredistincti\e. and may be recognized at any time. Unlikethe Chinese women they wear long gowns, like the Chinesemen.

My Closet of Cookbook Goodness

Image by MotleyOklahoman
I finally got my cookbook shelves (which are one full half of my pantry) all organized and mostly tidy. Only three stray boxes of books left! (And they are by far not particularly loved or used ones)
One of these days I will sit down and re-catalog my cookbooks. I did it a number of years ago, but have since added at least thirty+ titles and who knows how many magazines.

48/365 – One of my passions

Baking is one of my many passions. I don’t get to do it as much as I would
like too, but when I do get the chance these are the recipe books that I
turn too. I particularly love the calendars which were produced by the South
Australian Country Women’s Association from member contributions. I have one
for biscuits and one for cakes which were produced in the late 1930s early
40s which I regularly flip through for ideas. The recipes in them just seem
so simple and easy to make – probably because of the times in which they
were written. I love any old recipe books I can get my hands on!
