PLACATING THE DEVIL, Sydney, May 11.
The embalmed body of Mr. Thomas Lee Fong, a merchant, was taken on board the steamer St. Albans to-day with much Chinese ceremony for interment in China.
Mr. Fong before his death booked a passage on the steamer. The Chinese believe ttat the only way to preserve Mr. Fong from the sinister influences of the devil while en route is to throw Chinese money from the decks of the steamer to placate the devil when he comes on board.
