Chim-Hoam is a Chinese idol, supposed to be the guardian of cities. All officials in the Chinese government were formerly obliged, under penalty of forfeiting their situation, to repair to the temple of Chim-Hoam when entering their official career, and thereafter twice a month, and there prostrate themselves before his altar, adore and worship the idol, with offerings of candles, perfumes, flowers, flesh, and wine, and there receive their oath of office.
