  Filipino  \Fil`i*pi"no\,  n.;  pl  {Filipinos}.  [Sp.] 
  A  native  of  the  Philippine  Islands,  specif.  one  of  Spanish 
  descent  or  of  mixed  blood. 
 
  Then  there  are  Filipinos,  --  ``children  of  the 
  country,''  they  are  called  --  who  are  supposed  to  be 
  pure-blooded  descendants  of  Spanish  settlers.  But  there 
  are  few  of  them  without  some  touch  of  Chinese  or  native 
  blood.  --The  Century.
