"WON'T YOU WALK INTO MY PARLOR"
A whole bevy of those funny-looking animals that totter through the Street labelled "Chinese Women," had been invited to call upon Judge Shepheard yesterday morning, when they would hear something to their disadvantage. These Taepings were charged with tappings, and as they didn't appear, the Judge charged them for it, and much bail was forfeited. There were about a dozen cases. The offence is simply a conventional sign of invitation to persons passing, to walk in, and grows out of the characteristic hospitality of that class of persons.
