IN FLOOr? TIME.
Unique Scenes in the Sugar Dis
trict of Louisiana.
Entire Plantations Covered by a
Wild Waste of Waters.
The cane-sugar district of Louisi
ana is very flat and intersected all
over with a net-work of back-water
streams called bayous. The tides
from the ocean and the floods from
the Father of Waters steal noiselessly
'back and forth through thom. This
constant ebb and flow cuts them out
very deep, but not wide on account of
the tenacious banks formed hythe
rank vegetation with which they are
generally bordered. They are navi
gable wat?rways for craft that are not
too broad in tho beam. One will not
travel far before coming upon one of
these bayous, and by parting the
bushes and weeds will see a narrow
lagoon-like stream that it may appear
possible to wade, but it will provo
very deceptive as to depth. Present
ly perhaps a throbbing noise will bo
heard, and a schooner in tow of a tug
will appear wedging its way between
the palisades of moss-hung cypress
and arching water-oak. Over on the
Mississippi side of the country the
river is kept in by Government levees,
supplemented sometimes by private
ones of a better nature, which the
planters put up behind the works of
the Government for additional protec
tion. Often the river is higher than
the surrounding country, and one sees
pairs of steamboat stacks moving
noiselessly along above the treetops.
In one instance, midway between
the coast and the river, the levee
broke, and some of tho inhabitants
knew nothing about it at the time.
The water in the bayous rose up high
er and higher on the trunks of the
cypress trees, and no return tide from
the ocean rushed it back and let it
down again. The ditches were filled
with water noiselessly from this di
rection and from that. Not a drop of
rain had fallen for some days, but the
ground beoamo soggy, and by night
the cano fields were under water, and
the fences floated away, and in the
morning the people went around the
down-stairs part of tho house in boats.
Generally those who are liable to be
affected are kept posted, for the
Father of Waters is a common enemy,
and at critical times the neighbors will
carry news to neighbors, and all rush
to the front forgetting animosities and
race lines, and labor ceaselessly day
and night in their efforts to hem in the
rising flood of tho mighty river. Many
are tho feurts that aro healed during
tho anxiety of a night on a dangerous
Those who livo in regions high and
dry can scarcely imagine the scenes
incident to an occasion of this kind.
Tho piano is shoved out on the lawn,
ready to be swung by ropes to the up
per balcony if it is too big to go up
the staircase, and it generally is. The
books in the library are taken to the
second story or tho garrett ; ditto, the
mattings, carpets, pictures, portieres,
curtains and upholstered furniture.
Tho colored people have their own ef
fects to keep dry and are unavailable,
and it devolves upon the members of
the family to save what they prize most
highly. The stable boss, of course, is
away, and one of the family has to go
down with the lantern and turn the
horses out, so they can swim if they
have to. Tho doors of the sugar house
have to be closed to keep things that
.will flout from drifting away. It be
gins to rain and articles on tho lawn
are in dauger while waiting elevation
to the balcony. Later on, as the water
deepens, thc downstairs shutters aro
"closed to keep drifting matter from
breaking the glass, and it is now so
high that the things are removed
from the upper drawers and shelves
by lwat, those lower down having
been.attended to first, and the stair
case is used for a landing. Last of all
the lamps are taken ont of the chan
deliers and handed up, and tffe lower
part of tho house is left in
dampness and darkness. Morn
ing comes, and all is water.
A steamboat pushes in through the
floating fences, that aro beginning to
wind off like hugo sea serpents, to
learn if anything is wanted. Many
other things happen before the flood
goes down, which it finally does, leav
ing dead cattle boats, barrels and all
kinds of odd things in the branches of
the trees along the avenue. Then
comes the cleaning up of the house,
and moving down again. It is sur
prising few minnow fish are dead in
the mud cn tho hearth itones, and a
crawfish is making tracks through tho
scum on tho floor. But tho damage
to tho house is trivial compared to
that done to tho plantation.-Now
Chinese Swells in Winter Costume.
Leaving tho Hotel Des Colonies, in
the foreign quarter of Shanghai,
writes Frank G. Carpenter, I rode in
a jinriksha, pulled by two men, far
out into tho country. Tho day was
cold, raw and rainy, but I decided to
risk nrrest by taking my camera with
me, and, wrapped in oiled silk, it lay
between my legs as we dashed through
the muddy streets crowded with bare
legged coolies in hats as big as um
brellas and rain coats of a reddish
brown jute, who were carrying heavy
loads swung on poles from their shoul
ders. We passed many women in
blue gowns of wadded cotton, who
hobbled along on the sides of their
little feet through the mud with a
knock-kneed gait, and met at every
turn the 'rikshas and sedan chairs of
swell Chinamen, whose eybs were so
shrouded by their big black spectacles
that they looked like Gargantuan
brownies rather than scholarly Chi

WclI-BuiT Southern Houses.
While the colonists of New Eng
land commonly dispensed with brick
and stone in tho construction of their
snog and friendly domiciles-those
yellow colonial mansions which con
stitute a feature so characteristic in
the Northern landscape-the planters
of Maryland and Virginia built them
selves substantial Btrnctures of im
ported brick, and aspired to tho archi
tectural distinctions of Queen Anne
end the Georges. One of the manor
born, who has written with loving
knowledge of theso solid and sincero
old houses, has told of tho noblo join
ery of tho roof; of the deep, capa
cious window-seats and hearthstones,
prodigal of space ; of great halls that
greet you with the largest w?leome ;
of "stairs that glide rather than
climb" to the floor above, where is the
dancing-hall or assembly room ; of
carved chimney-pieces, paneled wains
coting, and Italian cornices; of the
later piazzas and porticos that came in
after the Bevolution ; and of the hip
roofed homes of the burghers of
Annapolis, with their huddled chim
ney-stacks and low ceilings, their cor
nered fireplaces and dormer windows,
with a multitude of little panes in tho
broad sashes, and tho shining faces of
the brass knockers, so expressive of
homely kindness; and withont, tho
arbor and the dove-cote, and the
prim, box-edged garden, with its walks
so decorous and Dutch-like, but gor
geous with lilacs and snowballs, holly
hooks, and wall-flowers.-Century.
Shower Baths for Horses.
They do a queer but very sensible
thing to the car horses in New York
in hot weather. The horses are kept
outside, not in the heated stables, and
are put in a row face to tho sidewalk.
One of the stable men has a bose
which ht? turns on the horses every
little while. The stream of water is
first sent on their backs then on the
head and as it comes down the row,
the horses that have not been wet lcok
up to see when their turn is coming.
They appear to like it, and no won
der. Probably many a boy or girl
walking along in tho heat would like
it too.-Now York Advertiser.

WOMEN AS ARCHITECTS.
Why are there not more women ar
chitects? It is a profession that seems
peculiarly fitted to them, while they
know, as few mon can, exactly what a
house should he. In a certain village
a rich widow, who owns a great many
houses, has planned everyone of them
herself and with uniform success.
This being done with no training for
it, one wonders what would be the re
sult of study.-St. Louis Star say
A surgeon on an Atlantic steamship
line says that in his wide experience
he has found women on the whole
cooler and more self-possessed than

according to the report of the passen
gers on tho ill-fated Oregon, which
was wrecked some years ago, the
women behaved with remarkable calm
ness. In describing the disaster, one
of tho passengers, Mr. S. Newton
Bench, of London, said: "The cool
est persons on board were the ladies,
as thoy always are when tho case ia
not one of a mouse, but one of real
danger. "-New York Journal.
COOKING AS AN ACCOMPLISHMENT.
The latest excitement in Paris smari
society is tho pursuit of cooking as an
accomplishment. Cooking soirees are
frequent, and it goes without saying
that the art attains greater excellence
among tho French belles' than it ever
has when countenanced by English or
American dames of high degree.
Frenchwomen are born cooks; their
present caprice merely demonstrates
that this hereditary instinct is not con
fined to any one class. At a recent
reception at the splendid home of a
Princess, a refreshment bar was fitted
up in the drawing room, at which the
guests were supplied with warm dishes
broiled, roasted and sauted on ele
gant cook stoves by very aristocratic
young women. The men, it is said,
could not eat enough in their anxiety
to show their appreciation of the
novel institution and its charming
promoters.-New York Times.
WRAPPERS AND CURL PAPERS.
The almost universal use of ready
made dresses has had one salutary ef
fect on the women of the present gen
eration. The shirt waist and blouse
have had much to do with the exceed
ingly trim and dainty appearance of
our young women as they go about the
house. Timo was when the wrapper
was tho accepted morning dress of
nineteen-twentieths of the women of
the country. Indeed, it was extremely
fashionable and therefore eminently
proper, but it had a semi-demoralizing
tendency that the world is very much
better without. Negligeo is unbecom
ing and unsuitable outside of one's
own apartment, and Fashion, for once
a sensible and clear-headed dame, haa
decreed that the wrapper and curl
papers are not to be seen below stairs,
or later than breakfast time. It takes
a littlo longer to dress ia reasonably
good taste and come down looking
fresh and bright, but it certainly pays
even though one must rise a few mo
ments earlier to bring about this re
sult. It is easy enough, if ono takes
a littlo forethought to provide dainty
waists and simple and becoming skirts.
These, with a corsolet or belt, can be
adjusted in a moment almost as easily
as one can get into an ordinary wrap
per, and when tho effect is taken into
consideration, there is much to be
said in favor of this manner of dress
ing that few thoughtful young women
would be willing to go back to tho
curl papers and wrappers of tho last
generation.-New York Ledger.
