SATURDAY, JAN. 12, 1884.
A MEXICAN LADY'S MAID.
Even a "lone, lorn" Mrs. Gmui
uingc, like your faithful scribe, trilfat
perforce defer to popular prejudice,
. and set up a female erendo -"to follow
her about a piece of household furni
ture neither useful nor ornamental.
'Sim is the torment of my life, pilfer
ing my choicest possessions, experi
menting with my toilet articles, dis
' tributing my raiment among her
" frlEnds in occasional bursts of gencr
. osity, and, when not otherwise en
gaged, sitting cross-legged upon the
floor, suggestively scratching with
both' hands among her raven ti esses.
At first, like St. Paul, I "kicked
against the bricks," and vowed I
would not submit to such an un
mitigated nuisance ; but I came to it
gracefully in time, as you would also,
my most iiisiiuiuns menus, uuuer
' similar circumstances. Aside from
tlic matter of good taste in conform
ing to the customs of the country
one is living in, and the natural de
sire to be considered at least "re
spectable" even by strangers, this
concession o American independence
.to'thc tyranny, of the Mexican servant
system is necessary, in order to gain
and maintain the entr6o to the "best
society," whose mysteries I am here
on purpose to explore. To have a
faint idea of some of the smallest
lions in the way of my mission, you
must understand that for a lady to
be travelling alone underany circum
stances is an almost unpardonable
crime, in . Mexico., To abide for a
day in a hotel is a disgrace which it
is hard to live down, and boarding
houses there are none. Well, one
must eat now and then, in spite of
popular prejudices, and life is too
short to set up liousckceping with a
retinue of retainers in every tdwn,
even if my munificent, newspaper, in
come would allow. It is a wise old
adage, "Of all evils choose the
least," and there sits my evil on;
the floor, scratching away as usual 1
She attends me "to mill and to
meeting," to the restaurant for my
meals (I could not go alone without
daily iiisulb) ' to the cathedral ser
vices, on my visiting and exploring
expeditions, as inevitable as my
shadow and as useless. Perhaps I
do her injustice in saying she is
neither useful nor ornamental. Con-
sidered simply in the latter light, she
is as effectively picturesque as much
of our bric-a-brac, an ugly Japanese
jar, for inst&hce, ; with her eyes that
shine like stars, and skin the colour
of an old shoe. Upon the soles of
her tiny bare feet she wears sandals
of her own making, cut from the leg
of an old boot, laced over and over
with bits of string and around her
shapely ankles. She always wears a
long blue robozo (a sort of national
shawl), which with one careless toss
she winds around her head and
shoulders with a grace which no
American could imitate if she tried
a lifetime. As for usefulness, she
watches for tarantulas and centi
pedes, and the-lelight with which she
tortures poisonoub toings, tearing off
their legs, sticking pins into them,
and then grinding them into the
ground, is characteristic. Monterey

THE BRITISH NAVY.
Great uncertainty pervades the
public mind as to the real state of
the Navy. That this should be so
is not surprising. Have we, not
ranged on one side Admiral of the
Fleet Sir Thomas Symonds, Admiral
do .Horsey, . Sir Sydney Dacres,
Captain Bedforn Pirn, Lord Henry
Lennox, Mr. Cavendish Bcntinck,
Sir E. J. Reed, and a score of
Naval officers of distinction besides,
"t ' who arc ever asserting that our Navj'
will 80(m be no match for that of
France ; that it is now unequal to
"the requirements of the Empire
that our ships, as a rule, are unfit
rfor anything but coast defence, and,.
.as n "whole, utterly incapable ' of
blockading an enemy's coast, puch
as that of France, for example? Sir
Thomas Symonds has repeatedly
stated that our ironclad ships "arc
unable to save themselves under the
, commonest circumstances ;" that
their armament is so defective, with
their old muzzle-loaders, that were
the French armour-clads to meet
ours in the Channel, the issue of the
combat, notwithstanding the assur
ances of "My Lords" to the con
trary, would be very doubtful Life.
'What is a score?" said t)ic
,, teacher, "The number of runs got
at a cricket match," replied the
urchin. "No, no; what I mean is
how much docs a score signify
numerically? What does it give?
That is to say, were I to tell you
that T had a score of horses, what
would you think?" "Please, ma'am,
I should think you was stufiln' me,"
calmly replied the boy.
Wish Wonns. Fools will often
make success where prudent people
We cannot become liberal unless
'we avoid petty motive.
The bane of distrust will tend to
