one feces through the republic signs and inci

sation. Tho country is an illustration of tho
fact thatgood can como out of evil, for all
that Guatemala is today she ovres to tho des
potism, tlie tyranny, the cruelty of Barrios.
Indeed, there are not lacking indications of
retrogreaaon tmco ho was slain. Tho land and
tue people seem to need his strong character
t j direct and govern them, and until another
Earrioa shall arise Guatemala particularly,
and Central America generally, will not livo
up to their possibilities.
Barrios found Guatemala as Richelieu
found France, a weak and tottering fabric,
and in brief time he regenerated her. His
methods were decisive, perhaps inhuman, but
the results ho achieved almost justify tho
agencies employed. lie saw about him a su
perstitious, densely ignorant and slavish peo
ple, barren of hope or ambition, littlo re
moved from the animal and wallowing in tho
darkness. Almost a majority of tho common
people ncted.as beasts of burden. By means
cf straps or thongs fastened to their lieads
they carried all tho stores and products of
tuo country to and from tho coasts. Pack
mules wcro scarcely known, for tho Indiaus
und half breeds did all the carrying in city,
town or hamlet. Like tho crab tho country
was going backward, aud tho dark days of
tho Spanish conquest continued. Barrios at
enco changed all this. lie became dictator,
absolute ruler, despotic chief, whoso will was
Jaw, whose word no man dare gainsay.
"I will not rule over animals, but human
Tamgs,"ho declared, and straightway ordered
lbit tho people cease from making of them
selves beasts of burden. It was a great hard
ship. In their dense ignorance they knew of
no other modo of gaining an existenco and
looked upon tho importation of mules from
Honduras and Nicaragua as their absolute
ruin. B.irrlos then jKimted to tho rich vir
gin land and commanded that each man till
a small bection of soil, plant so many coffeo,
rubber and banana trees and make Guate
mala largely productive. His order was ab
solute, and they sullenly obeyed. It was re
quired that they rejiort their labor at the end
of each season. Those who had disobeyed his
commands wero brought in and Housed.
At the end of the second year,.if they still
disobeyed his directions, they wero brought
before him. Then, in that dramatic way
which this famous son of Castile affected, ho
would silentlystep to his desk, dip two fingers
ia the inkitaud, and, walking to tho culprit,
would solemnly mako'tho sign of the cross on
his forehead and order him put to immediate
death, in this way he struck terror to the
lioarts of tbo delinquents, and Guatemala be
gan tuliouriih bee a woirkapt garden. Thero
tras- nojtuinporizing, no pardoning, no judge
or jury but, cold and pitiless and inexorable
as fate,-iio oerried out his will, aad heaven
clouo knows how many hand rods of men
have been done ' to death in tho great prison
at Guatemala Cirv.
Not ouly in tho matter of planting, but in
all other walk of life, did Barrios push bis
methods and force improvements. He com
manded the separation of church and state,
established schools, made education compul
eoxv, while oven tae buspicion of disloyalty I
t him or the state was the cause for prompt
erecuuon. liis btroug will permeated tho en

Tue revolution was slow. Hundreds yes t'uou

practiced before it would be acknowledged;

If tho reader of this letter had traveled, as
I have done, through the flvo republics and
seen the lethargy and-inertnes of the people,
he could almost "trfsh that Barrios bad lived to
accomplish iris self imposed task and satisfy
his splendid ambition. Terrible as were his
methods, they are tho only ones that will
force- the people to develop thi3 country and
themselves, and until another Barrio3 shall
come up the idea of a federation of the Cen
tral American states is like unto a castle in
Sam Jose, on the Pacific ocean, is the port
at-wbich one disembsrks to visit Guatemala.
It is tho largest and most -nourishing of tho
sea towns on the Central American coast,
which, however, ia not saying a great deal.
It 13 blessed with a fine iron pier, a few
official and semi-official buildings, a railway
station, ndis backed by an Indian village
of five or sir hundred inhabitants. A train
for Guatemala City leaves every morning.
The distance is ninety miles, tho elevation
5,000 feet, nearly all of which is mado during
the final run of thirty miles. The journey,
consuming six hours, is-oneof extreme inter
est. Breakfast is served at tho picturesque
town of Escuintla, in a cool patio, under
superb palm trees, and tho food is delicious,
abundant and admirably cooked.
Thero i3 no "ten minutes for refreshments."
The train waits nearly an hour for you to en
joy your meal, and then tosaunter outamong
the adjacent coffee groves, chat with the
senoritas or seek information from tho court
eous soldiery about. The officers will tell
you many things of interest. One I found
who was a condensed encyclopedia. "Guate
mala, senor," he paid, "has a population of a
million and a half, and of that number over
a million are of pure Indian blood. It has a
revenue of five millions a year; it costs for
government over four million, annually, and
ono million for the service of its national
"Its principal products are coffee and sugar.
Since the days of Barrios it has been very
productive, it has many schools and educa
tion is compulsory. There are in Guatemala
coffee fincas producing from six to sixteen
thousand centals cf coffee a year, which
means a yearly income to the owner of from
fifty to ono hundred thousand dollars, so
you can see somo men in this country are
very rich. Along the line of this railway,
from tho coast to the lake, is one vast sugar
plantation, and tho people are now all rea
sonably prosperous. Over there is a sightly
plantation which nets its owner from sugar
10,000 pesos annually, and makes a beautiful
home." I glanced in the direction ho pointed
and sawa typical Guatemalan hacienda, which
my over ready camera brought into photo
graphic permanency. Thu3 wo chatted until
the warning whistle of tlie locomotive called
me away, and in a few minutes wo began our

Sax Francisco. March 31. Tho first Chi
neso school I ever visited I thought a riothr.d
broken out. About fifty boys wero seated
upon high three legged stools, aud each
ewayed his body to and fro aud shouted at
the top of his voice. It was moro like tha
raving ward in a lunatic asylum than a place
for learning classic lore. But it was only an
ordinary every day scene in stud' hours. I
puzzled my brain over tho matter not a littlo
beforo I discovered the reason of the noise.
When I was a pupil in a country school wo
used to "study out loud" during tho tempo-
rary absence of tho teacher, but we never j
adopted tho plan permanently.
The Chinese lauguar cannot bo spoken in I
It has tones and accents aim in
flections and grunts und gutturals and nasals
which can only be produced m full voice, and
every variation and precision in tone, etc., is
essential to tho proper meaning of the words.
The snmo identical word pronounced in dif-
lercnt wajs Has as many amerent meanings
as it has different methods of accent. Thus,
whilo each pupil mado as much noue a3 ho
could unaided by gongsor blunderbuses, his
own noise effectually 'drowned all other
sounds to him, andlsewaiinpracticalsilence.
At Chinese theatres everybody in the audi
ence talks out at the same time tho -players
are talking. It is the running comment upon
tho play and players. At churches, while the
preacher is delivering his discourse, his audi
ence is ab.o talking1 at full sixed. It is moro
bko a tewing bee in the country, whero the
ladies meet to talk over their personal mat
ters, than anything eLa I know of.
Somo peoplo do not believe a Chinaman can
think without singing over thessubject of his
thoughts. It is at least a common occurrence
to hear an animated conversation around
somo turn in tho road, and when you como
ujwn what you have taken to be a company
of travelers you find ono man talking to him
self. Each pupil at school furnishes hi own desk
aid chair, or stool. He also provides himself
with a teapot and a fan and a book. These
comprise tho outfit. In one end of the room
sits the tocher. He is a sallow, small man,
whoso cent sleovcs are nbout a foot longer
than his arms, and his linger nails are as long
as his fingers, and he -wears glasses with I
lenses about as big as the top of a coffee cup.
He looks wise and solemn through it aiL
He never disturbs tho pupils by calling
upon tbtni to recite. When a boy has sung
over a paragraph until he can sing it off with
his eyes shut, he jumps down from bis perch,
and hands the book to tbo teacher to watch if
he trips in bis recital, and turning his back

AN INDEFINABLE SOMETHING WHICH
MAKES WOMAN'S CHARM.

Beyond beauty, clovernes3, wit, attain
ments, beyond any endowment which can be
jiven to a woman, is the simple and indefina
ble attribute which we call charm. It is im
possible to analyze its component parts, and
equally so to write a prescription in avoir
dupois or apothecary's weight the resultant
precipitate of which shall compose this best of
the Creator's gifts to woman.
Eve had it, we fancy, and Miriam, Ruth
and the queen of Sheba; and it belonged too,
no doubt, to Jezebel, the infamous but splen
did and surpassingly bravo princess, before
whom even Elijah courage quailed. Sappho
had charm, so had Cleopatra and Beatrice
and Hosalind. ilary of Scotland bewitched
men's hearts not less by hex- conquering charm
than by her wonderful loveliness and daunt
less daring, whilo Elizabeth of England
many sided, strong aud resolute,T.vithaman's
heart under her woman's corsage had the
fatal defect o lacking charm.
There are women in every community, in
every church, who, with no apparent effort,
captivate all hearts and enjoy a popularity
which others vainly envy, continuing to
please till their latest day, for ago cannot
wither nor custom stale the infinite variety
of a really charming woman. A rose is a
rose, and a cabbage is a cabbage, and each
has its place; but nobody claims charm for a
cabbage, though it take the prizo at a country
fair, while tho simplest rosebud on the bush
by the waysido challenges tho world of flow
el's with this royal distinction.
What is it? A trick of manner, of speech,
a lifting of the eyebrow, a drooping of tho
lip, an air of gentle breeding, a fine grained
courtesy? These may be part of it, but
charm is something deeper. The pretty
waitress at your elbow may possess it, whila
it is denied to her mistress, tho daughter, per
haps, of a hundred earls. Whatever else it
is, be assured it is puro womanliness, and has
belonged to the fair sex since that far off day
when the sons of God beheld the daughters
of men, and beholding, loved them. Harper's
Not only does tho French woman buy tho
material for her dinner, but helps to cook it
when bought. In that marvelous place, a
French kitchen, where two or three little
holes in a stove cook such delicate dishes, and
perform such culinary feats as our great
roaring coal fires have no conception of, she
flits about like a fairy, creating magical
messes out of raw material of tho most or
dinary description. Yes, though a lady born
and bred, refined, elegant and agreeable in
society, a belle in her way, yet she does not
think it beneath her dignity to lightpn tho
household expenses by practical economy aud
The dinner of a French family is cheap and
simple. Thero is always a boup, tho meat of
tho stewpan sometimes, if not strict in ex
penditure; another plate of meat generally,
tw o vegetables, dressed and eaten separately,
and sometimes, not always, a sweet dish; if
not that, a littlo fruit, such as may be tho
cheapest and ripest in the season. But thero
is very little in each thing, and it is rather in
arrangement than in material that they ap
The French may bo a trifle epicurean in
their tastes, but they are not gourmands.
They spend little in eating and they eat infe
rior things, though their cookery is rather a
scienco than a mere accident of civilization.
At home tho great aim of tho French is to
save, and any self sacrifice that leads to this
result is cheerfully undertaken, more espe
cially in eating than tho mere luxury of idle
ness. No French woman will spend a cent to savo
herself trouble. Sbo would rather work liko
a dray horso to buy an extra yard of ribbon
or a now pair of gloves than lie on tho softest
sofa in the world in placid, fine ladyism, with
crumpled gauze or bare hands. Waverly

a fo-ily laundry has been scientifically
taught and enforced by practice.
Iu one room a girl of 14 or 15, formerly a
pnpil in tho Kindergarten, was washing win
dows and paint. Well dressed, she was poised
on a step ladder, polishing a largo pano of
glass with a chamois skin. Her pail of suds
stood on the shining floor, with a bit of oil
cloth under it, that notadrop of water should
touch the varnish. I involuntarily loored at
tho wall paper along tho edges of tho window
and door casings and basoboardi!, and saw
that no careless wash cloth had ever loft its
trail en a surface for which it was not de
signed. As I glanced back at th maiden she
was folding her towels and placing them m a
covered basket, with a comportment for each.
