OF LIFE AND DEATH.
We talked of 010 and death. She said:

Are trying, trying to convey
bouse message to my troubled mind.

Of effort to tell to me aught

Could I but guess; and I cannot.
And when the wind ro*e at my door.
It clamored with a painful da.
Like aoine »ioor creature bcgg;a; sore

LEE HING'S GIBL.
"What time is it. Sing?"
Xiawn was just breaking outside, and the
smokers in Sam Sing's Doyers street joint
had reached that somnolent, semi-con
scious condition which is the greatest fas
cination of opium smoking; when all the
worry, burdens and passions of life are
obliterated from the brain, and a calm,
peaceful, dreamy content fills the whole
being; when it is unalloyed happiness to
lie upon the bard bunk and dreamily gazo
at the tiny flame of the opium lamp,
mechanically puffing a cigarette and
conversing in low, sleepy tones; when a
half-defined feeling pervades the over
powered brain that it would be so pleasant
never to be disturbed from this sweet state;
when the snowy, bared bosom on which
the head is resting kindles no more feeling
than the carpeted wooden head-rests;
when human being, no matter how de
praved, comes nearest to the feeling:
"Peace on earth, good will toward men."
"What time is it, Sing?"
The question came from a dark-haired
young girl, one of a party of four who had
been smoking since the early evening. Al
though it was bitter cold outside, the
workingmen on the near-by Bowery scur
rying along rubbing their ears, Sinz's
■tove, the closeness of the room and the
dense fumes of the drag had combined
to make it uncomfortably warm in
the joint, and the young girl
had removed her dress and her
companions their coats and vests,
being clustered about the opium layout in
the usual dishabille. The girl was about
-St years old, of slight but saperb figure,
very pretty, with dark eyes and a mass of
black hair that tumbled over her naked
shoulders in rich profusion. The men
were of a familiar class, handsome, well
groomed fellows, known to Inspector
Byrne's men as expert "handshakers."
"Five minutes to 6," answered the slick
looking Chinaman, as he appeared in the
"As iate as that?" asked the girl in
dreamy surprise. Then she aroused her
aelf with an effort, and said:
"Come, let me up, Frank. I've got to
The smoker who had been doing the
rooking tor the party, lying with his head
pillowed on her bosom, opened his eyes,
and with a "Going, Mame? Won't you
have another pipe?" sat tip to let her slip
off the bunk, took her head-rest, closed
his eyes, and was off again to his blissful
The girl went to the sink and by a
liberal application of cold water from the
faucet brightened up a bit. She neatly
coiled her wealth of hair, slipped on her
clothing, put on a jaunty hat, and then
nudged her companions:
"Well, I'm going. Good-by."
"So long. Mame. See you tonight,"
murmured the sleeping trio, who wouldn't

Mamie, who, from constant association,

She passe 1 down the rickety stairs, shiv
ering as she 'truck the cold air. Filtering
the isi'le roon\ of a saloon a few doors awav
she found s-. ver .1 young men stretched
out in various attitudes upon chairs and
tables, noisily sleeplne off their libations.
Going up to the hardest-looking one of the
lot she shook hi n sharply.
"'Chuck'! 'Chuck'! Wakeup."
"I'm! I'm! That's all right." snored
and groaiwrd the sleeper, who, stretched
out on two chair.', was e -iipsing all the
others in tho variety and volume of noise
emitted from gaping: mouths.

entreated the eirL "I want you to go an

Mo shaking she could administer elicited
nny other reply, and she was about to cry
for vexation when the door from the saloon
opened and the i>ark eeper, who had been
awakened from his own nap, spin-a red.
"What the devil's ,-U! this."' ho growled
In the deepest of basso prufundo.
"Oh, Billy, I need 'Chuck,' and I can't
wake him up."
"Get up, you bum prizefighter." yelled
the barkeeper. "What d'ye take this for?
"I'm! I'm! That's ail right." volun
teered the steeper.
"It's all right, is it?" was tho growl.
"Well, we'll see if it is."
Here he yanked the chair from under
the sleeper's head and - it came down with
a bang that drew a shriek from th« girl and
awakened the others.
"Cm! Cm! That's all right," came
from the floor.
"Can't hurt a bum prl-etighter." senten
tiously remarked the barkeeper, after a
number of well-placed kicks had no other
result than to draw forth a series of grunts.
"I'll see what a bath can do. That's the
only tiling on earth lie is afraid of "
lie got a bottle of seltzer water from the
bar and dexterously directed the stream
upon the sleeper's t i e. It worked to a
charm. Cp spuing "Chu k." and seeing
the bottle in the barkeeper's hands, l.e
sprang for a chair, aim the «teaier in
poison dodged just in time to let the chair
go through the glass of the part it i >n.
"Yer red-nosea lush," yi ed the th r
ouglilv awakened boxer as he jumped lor
another chair, "what t'ell is this yer tryin"
to eive me ?"
But the girl caught hold of him in time
to prevent any further damage.
"!' n't, Chink,'" »he said. "It's my
fault ! wanted you waked up to go on an
errand for me."
"Errand?" repeated "Chuck." "Not on
yer lite, says Mary." Here he wiped the

•Chuck,' I've got something I want you to
do for rue. Jiow, <lo me a favor.''
The down-town boxer is one of the best
nattired men in the world. so after firing
some of his choice vocahalarv at the bar
tender. and threatening to take away his
patronage, he grumbiing'.v followed the
girl over to 19 Pell street. There was some
little trouble getting into her rooms, the
Chinaman angrily refusing to open the
'"You go place you go all night," he ad
"Well," returned the giri, defiantly,
"you let me get mv thinsrs and I will."
The Chinaman finally unbolted the
door, bus seeing "Chuck." was about to
slam it shut again, when the boxer got
his foot in the jam and pushed his way
after the girl.
"What do yon want," demanded the
Chinaman, holding the door, "\ou go
out. you llish bum."
"Tut' T .:! me boy." rejoined the boxer,
all his good humor returned, "don't
make no bad hr«3ks. I'm after a job on

With this airr persiflage Mr. "Chuck"
Connors helped himself to a cigarette and
lounged on the sofa to smoke it.
"Mokki hi!" hissed the Chinaman, as
an ugly look came into his shifty eyes.
"You go out quick," and his hand crept
into his blouse."
"Don't you dare draw that knife. Lee

between the two men. "I want send
'Chuck'my mamma: one letter: that ail;

falling into the pigeon English.
"Goddam you." returned the Chinaman,
tnrnir.a his wrath upon her. "Where you
stay ail night? You no think I know.

What for you no stay here? You got pipe

"Long time BO see. He come Chicago.

long time you see your mamma," sneered
he; "no long time you see you flend: no
long time you see you blothc-r. All light:
no long time yon see me. I come back no
more." and he seized his hat and stalked
out of the room.
"Lovers once bat strangers now," quoth
"Chuck," as the door slammed. "Why
didn't you let him come at me with that
knil'e? I'd got square on that red-nosed
barkeeper through this Chink," was the
boxer's i.logical argument, as he carelessly
twirle 1 a piece of lead pipe.
To his surprise the girl burst into a fit of
hysterical sobbimr, burying her pretty
face in her arms on the table.
"Chuck" was nonplussed, and whistled
before he commnn-d with him
self: "Well, I'm hanged if hero isn't

"Chuck." with a sigh.
He went up to the little figure at the
table, and with rough sympathy put his
arm around her and said: "Brace up,

Here the girl looked up at hira with
t< ir-stained face and wondering eyes.
"Why. 'Chuck.'" she said, "yoa don't
suppose I care whether Lee Hing comes
ba< k or not. do you? I hate him. No;
I'm rrving because 1 am so sick of it all.
Oh. how tired I am of mv life. If I could
only go back to my mother. That's why
I wanted you so much to wake up. Listen.
•Chuck.' Lee Hing was right in one
way. I did go to meet Frank last
night. And. oh, 'Chuck,' toward morn
ing when we were smoking I dozed
off, and I dreamt I saw my mother
standing in front of the bunk begging me
to leave it and come back to her. And she
loffked so white and sirk. You know I
don't go to see her any more, although
often at night when Lee King's thought
I've been away with Frank, I've been
over in Madison street walking tip and
down, to look at the window where she's
living all alone. I used to go to see her
every week, vou know, but the neighbors
found out where I was living and what I
was doing, and. althouch 1 wanted to
>n mamma badly, I didn't want to be a
shame to her. and I haven't seen her in
six long months. But I send her money
every week. Lee King's been good to me
in that way. l!ut I must see her tor Christ
mas. and if she'll only move away from
where people know me I'll give up this
life so gladly. Iwas a shirt maker before
I —l —I left Lome, andean make f" ors*ia

and be so happy. Oh! if we only could."
Here there was another prolonged tit of
weeping, and burly, roueh-tooking
"Chuck" Connors, prizefighter brought up
in the slums, knelt down lieside the girl,
and, with a suspicious break in his voice,
said: "And yer want me to go and see
the old woman tor yen? Well, now you've
got me where I live. The first thing I'll
do is to go over and ; shake hands with

cup, champagne or some other wine,
which is served by attendants in livery.
The state ball, however, is the great
social event of-the vear, and in Lord Duf
ferin's time about "00 persons were invited
to it, but this number was less than half
ot those who thought they ought to be
asked. Lord I.orne and the Princess
Louise, therefore, sought to solve the diffi
culty by having two balls and asking to
one those who were not present at the
other, and in this way much heart
burning was overcome. The Stanleys
follow the plan of their predecessors,
inviting such persons on the list as
are still approved of. But after all, the
state balls are, in British social parlance,
"very mixed affairs." Every prominent
politician has friends, either residents of
the capitol or visitors, and most of these
are tradespeople. One of the A. D. C.'s in
Lord Lome's time had the mortification
to discover in his vis-a-vis in a set of
quadrilles the person who had been in the
habit of visiting the Hall once a week to
deliver coal oil. He pleaded vertigo and
left the dance, but the coal oil man hunted
np a friend, who was a moccasin-maker,
aud danced the thing through.
Among some of the most conspicu
ous figures at the state ball, beside
the host in the present regime, are the
chief justice of Canada. Sir William
Bitchie and Lady Kitehie, sir Adolph
' aron, minister of militia; Sir John
Thompson, leader of the Conservatives of

FACTS ABOUT CHILE I
The Most Powerful Nation in
ALSO THE BEST GOVERNED.
Fine Schools and Universities, and Farm
ing Methods Equal to Our Own—Beau
tiful Country, Glorious Climate.
The idea is fixed deeply in the American
mind, says the New York that Chile
is not only the smallest republic, but one
of the smallest nations, and that her peo
ple are slender weaklings, who make loud
boasts, but are incapable of righting and
at heart cowards. The prevalent idea of
the valor of South Americans generally is
far from dattering, and most people in this
country consider the Chileans less
valorous than the rest. The fact is
that there is no country or no peo
ple on the face of the earth about which
Americans know less than about Chile and
Chileans. This is excusable, perhaps, for
the reason that there is less literature
about that country than any other. Situ
uated where it is, in the extreme south
and west of South America, out of the
lines of travel and unapproachable except
by sea. it has been skipped over by travel
ers. There are several voluminous his
tories in the Spanish language and a briet
dozen or two dull books of travelers' notes,
which have attracted no attention. There
has been more written about the savage
tribes of Central Africa than about the
powerful and enlightened republic of
Chile. Moreover, very little of Chile's
tremendous trade has come to Amer
ica. Great Britain takes care of that.
In England they know what resources the
country has and what a power she is.
Here we know Chile as a long yellow mark
on the map. We think of h<r as a barren
republic, clinging tooth and nail to the
Andes mountain* to save herself from
tumbling into the Pacific ocean. We think
of her people as paitly civilized half
breeds, swarthy of face and slender of
limb, who live in straw huts and work in
gold mines owned by Europeans. Perhaps
the very contempt with which we regard
Chile and Chilean aiTairs contributes to
our rage at reported instills. Chile! Faugh!
Let us wipe her off the lace of the earth!
Perhaps it will be news to most Amer
icans that Chiie is in some respects the
greatest nation in South America. That
r>ON JORGE XOXTT, PP.ESIDEST OF CHILE.
she is the most powerful, will stand un
disputed. That she is universally feared
by her neighbors is a fact. That she is
hated follows naturally. Chile is strong,
aggressive and warlike. She is to South
America.in many ways what Kussia is to
Kurope. >< > southern nation will risk a
quarrel with her, and her neighbors eye
her askan. e, doubting her intentions.
Ferhaps it rn3y be news to most
Americans that Chile is a large country.
She is small on the map, because
her sisters are euormously larger, but
her territory is extensive. She is larger
than any country in Europe except llu<-
eia. She has 2,500 miles of seacoast. If
she were plucked loose from her Andes
and laid down over our Atlantic coast, her
most northern province would cover Maine
and her rock-bound southern extremity
would blot out of existence the peninsula
of Florida. With that length Chile has a
breadth of from fifty to 200 miles. Perhaps
it will further surprise most Americans to
know that Chile is probably the m ijt ad
vanced nation oa her continent, iier rail
road, telegraph and jeleph ne systems
are of the best. Her method of govern
ment is superior to any. Her schools and
university's are in the van of education.
In tueth vis of farming she equals the
Vn.tea States. In manufactures she far
distances even. South American country,
and she is a model for any new nation in
the world. Her mining operations are
ri'vlern and extensive. Her commerce is
far extending and increasing. Chile isnot
a tru: A. country, it must be remembered.
Bha occupies the same zone that we oc-*u-
py. The only South American rival which
she haa in matter of civilisation and pro
cassis that aniaaing tvpublie of Argen
tine. just across the Andes, a republic
whica is surj a«s!nc in growth the best ef
forts of our » nderiul coantrv.
And cow comes another surprise. Few
Anier., .1:1s will be prepare 1 t - t-elieve that
the Chileans are a purr white race, strong
of body, sturdy of will, bright of wit, a
people of great courage. determination and
patriot.*: They are unlike any other
fouth American j>eople in these respects,
and that is why they are feared.
They a-e smaller in "stature than
Americans, but larger ai. 1 sturdier
tnan their neighbors. The ma?>, s,
th who make up tbe bulk of the popti
i&ticii asi me rank au4 Lie ci ;..e
array, are of mixed race, largely Indinn.
They are people of great streneth, endur
ance and ferocity. These common sol
diers, of the blood of the warlike Araucan
ian aoorigines. make Chile terrible in war.
They have no (ear of d ath and do not
know when they are defeated. In the war
with Peru the enormous proportion of
dead to wounded left on the lieid of battle
has gone into history as a memorial to the
ferocity of these dark-skinned warriors.
Imagine the entire eastern coast of the
fnited States, with from i(X> to 200 miles
of breadth, cut off from the rest of the
country, imagine the Kocky mountains,
largely increased in height and capped
with eternal snows, set close up against
the western edge of that strip of land,
their sides pushing down abruptly and
joining the level by slope? not easily trav
ersed. Now imagine the Alleghanies
pulled from thoir bases and p.anted
along the eastern edge of the coast,
so close to the sea that there is only room
for some narrow plains and a few towns
here and there between the surf and their
abrupt slopes. Suppose the long narrow
strip of country between the parallel
mountain chains a fertile plateau, bioom
ing with vegetable wealth, dotted with
cities and villages and crossed with in
numerable torrents carrying the drippings
of the snow-capped mountains to the sea.
That is Chile reversed, of course, lor
Chile's coast is bathed by the Pacific, and
the sun rises over the white summits of
Following out the comparison a little
further, we find that Chile's territory
would cover the states of Maine, New
Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts,
llhode Island, Connecticut, a third of New
York, all of New Jersey, half of Pennsyl
vania, most of Maryland, all of Delaware,
nearly half of Virginia and North Caro
lina, three-quarters of South Carolina,
half of Georgia, a corner of Alabama and
Chile runs from the fifteenth parallel of
south latitude well below the iifty-sixth.
The nortnern provinces grow hot under a
tropical sun and bring forth the fruits of
Southern California in profusion and per
fection. The wild and rocky territory
which she pushes southward to within
twelve degrees of the Antarctic zone is
cold and cheerless, given to ice in spring
and fall, and littie productive of vegeta
tion. Between the two limits the fertile

valley brings forth the products of every
zone by turn. It brines forth its produce
freely, too. under the spur of perfect irri
gation. enlightened methods of agricult
ure, and the country eats its till and sends
a large surplus of grains and other produce
to its leas energetic neighbors.
The same general land configuration ex
tends from the volcanic peaks of the ex
treme north almost to the barren island of
Terra del Kuego, where land ends. The
august Andes always push their anowv
summits into the clouds to the east of this
central vaiiey where the nation lives, and
the lesser heights of the Cordilleras de la
i osta atways hide the sea on the west,
('hile is more blessed in scenery than
Switzerland. There is no spot in all her
great territory which huge mountains do
not overlook. They are among the high
est in the world. "Aconcagua rises 22,427
feet into the air. The two dozen other
volsanoes. not so ambitious, are of enorm
ous heights also. Below the summits the
rugged and notched ridges of mountains
glisten whitely till they subside into pale
bine below the snow line.
The Cordilleras de !a Costa are cat by
many passes, down which rush mountain
torrents, and throngh which pass well
constructed railroads. The slopes of the
Cordilleras are short, ending abruptly in
the sea. The central plateau is much
higher. so that the eastern mountain
slopes are softer. At Santiago the central
taMe land is 1,800 feet high.
The Andes are the eastern boundary of
Chile in more scn«es than one. There is
an im3ginarv line drawn along their sum
mits which divides the country from Ar
gentina. Few people cross the Andes.
The passage requires from four to
six days. There are few so-called
passes, but they cannot be traveled ex
cept on mule" back. The passes are
simply slight indentation- in the mount
ains. The best known is Dona Ana. You
hive to mount 14.770 teet above the level
to pass through it. New Yorkers look
upon Mount Marcy, in the
as a very high mountain, an I boast of
having cli:nl>ed it. It is • j<j feet in
