.Most of ihe miMlotinrles hud (wfie 10 the
field In the pant five years. While the atl
thofitl" seem to have tried, m some In
stances, to protect the mUs'on, the only
service they were able to render wan to
help iheiii to esenpe. The missionaries fe,i
hundreds of mlleg down the river, travellna
on rafts and In houseboats, hardly carry-
ItlK' Ml intli-h lilt a ell 11 HDD ,,r .iiI..i.l, m,,l
r"iihln idnee, of safety only artir two
weeks of hardshln.
tb CheiiR th, tfie capital of the province
of xe ChiiBii, h placard was rtosteii on the
2Mh day of May nssertlnK that the "for
elirn hnrbarlntis" were liiilni? evil chnr
acters to steal small children for them.
The n.t day a mob of several thousand
tore down the Canadian Methodist mission
and the property of the two Protestant
societies and the Catholic bull. linn. The
tnlsslonni-lci; nnpcnhd to the magistrate
or the city, but be told them he was power
It'sti to help them. With the old of some
friendly luitKes they effected their escape.
Then the cry went up, "The time has come
to turn nil the missionaries out of Sim
fhutin." A Hurt of the 11111I1 divided Into
smaller parties and look the nrtmis roads
out or town, en route for other mission
centers. In oil cities the most inllammn
tory placards were posted on the walls.
Itlcitd immediately followed.
The Itaptlst missionaries believe the rloia
were incited by members of the oltlclnl
class. They 1,'i-rit in the background, how
ever, nnd, to nil appearances, the student
were itt the bottom of the mischief.
They published a placard llxtna a date
ror the destruction of the missionary prop
erty at Stilehau t-'u and for kllilntf the
nuivlslrnte, who wai suspected of dcslrinjr
to protect forelBiiers.
In most cases the missionaries, while
their property was belim destroyed, left
the cities and hid In the tiplxhborhood
nwnitlntt nil opportunity to escape. They
had friends who helped them to procure
boats and to put the ladles and children
aboard. At Suiclinu Ku Mesrs. Warner
and Welhvood and Dr. Finch sot their
valuable piipeiH and silver out of the town
mid secreted them. Here, ns everywhere,
the trouble came like 11 thunderclap out
or a clear sky. Sunday's servient were
well attended, quiet and very Impressive,
an. I three eanill'lntis were hnptliSeil by
Immersion. On Monday. June 3, the city
was Hooded with placards.
The In 1 if est party, which numbered fx-tj-llve,
was ciowded ror eleven days in lit
tle houseboats. -urierltiK terribly, and but
for the rail that they had money enouch

Chicago, Sept. 1. The Chicago Socialists

tlte proenee of the police nnd the knowl
edge that there was a InrBO reserve in all
of the stations mane It a very tume uffuir.
The IlitK wK prtsented to the socialists by
a daug-hter of Oscar Neebe on behalf of
the wives and daughters of the indlcnls
In the city. It wns blood red, and on- one
side bears the inscription, "Socialistic La
bor 1'urty of Chicago." The police were
Informed that It was the Intention of fbe
sortalis-ts to have a parade aTter the pre
ceti'tation cereiiranies, and that tlwj flair
would be carried at Its hind, but the ofll
(irs Inronned the commlttte that no such
parade would be permitted, nnd the idea
wti. given up. The speeches were very
tame, havinc none of the old-time radical
riiiK In them. There was considerable
disappointment because Kb r Hurdle faded
to put In an apptaranee, as It had been
announced that he would address the a
semblace. A Dainty Mrlpeil Jin".
"Flsli In captivity," said ,1 man of lonff
acquaintance with llshes, "often become
very tume, and sometimes they develop
peculiarities, In an aquarium that I was
connected with once, some years ago, we
had In a table tank six striped bass, vary
ing: from six to thirteen Inches In lenifth.
Five of these bass used to feed ravenously,
but the sixth one. the blHKest of all. would
wait. The live would rush nnd hustle for
the food when It was put In the water:
the blK one would lie down In the corner
and not come up at all. I thought he must
bo on his feed, and I thought 1 would buvc
to get some delicacy for hun.
"Uut one day when 1 bad fed the others,
the bis one still lying at the bottom, I
tapped on the side of the tank and held
out a live klllle. He came up and took the
klllie sharply. There wasn't nnythlug the
matter with him: he was all right, and 1
couldn't account for his holding back ex
cept that be considered It beneath his dig
nity to come up then and scramble with
the rest for the food thrown In the tank,
and that he prefencd to wait,
"Arter that regularly I fed the big bnss
separately. Afler I bad put the food for
the rest In the lank I would hold out his,
and he would come up and tnke It out of
my hands. 1 fed him In this way every
day for four months, until we lost him
and all the rest of the fish in this tank by
nn uccldent." New York Sun.

ha arisen between th- We-tern Ctilon

lei-es all of the telegraph lines Of the
rnllrofld and operates them its part of Its
lilenmph syatem. This arrangement 1m
been in force ever since ls"7. one of the
firovlslttn of the contract provides that
the Western t'nlon shall pay Mr. Hunllng
turt llOO.mw annually. The payment for this
year I now several monlln overdue and the
whole trouble in the outgrowth of ileall
gencp on thn pnrt of the Western Union.
The Western Union wishes a 1 eduction
madp In this yearly rental. No detinue
HtAletitiiit can be used n to the exft'-t
amount which tho Western Union would
be willing to pay, but It la rumoted that a
demand lias been made for a reduction of
nt least 33 per cent. The Western Union
people claim that there as no opposition
on the coast when the contract was mad'
and thnl during the Inst few years the
company has been subjected to the se
verest kind of competition. 1tt view of
these fa.'ts, thev claim the Southern I'.i
clllc should be willing to grant u niHtciltil
reduction.
Mr. Huntington nnd the Wetein Union
people hnve had the mutter under consid

snld to hnve so fnr declined to make any
reduction. lie takes the ground thnt the

Laredo. Tex., Sept. . 1. Information re
garding thp fearful storm of Friday, raging
from Corpus Christl. Tex., nnd across the
border, several hundred miles Into Mexico,
is very menger. Late to-night scarcely
anything iiellnlte can be learned, ns the
railroad olliclals are very reticent. Enough
Is known, however, to state that the storm
Is the worst in the history of Northern
Mexico.
First reports were to the effect thnt the
telegraph wires and railroad track would
be In working condition on Saturday, but
advices to-night indicate thnt wires to the
City of Me.lco over the M.lcnn National
railway will not be serviceable until to
morrow, and unotllclal advices would Indi
cate the abandonment of the throuijli trains
until the latter part of the week. Five
miles of Mexican National telegraph wires
are down, with numerous bridges washed
away. In many places the Mexican Na
tional roadbed Is washed out for several
hundred yards
At one point 300 yards of the track was
washed into a small river nnd twisted into
all sorts of shapes. It Is reported that one
pass-cnger train Is stranded near Salome
llotoleo, a small mining ramp about 100
miles Irom Laredo the embankment being
washed out at the head and renr end of the
train. There are no reports of loss of life
Or homes. There is no telling what devel
opments will bring to light. The American
government Wires are equally as badly dam
aged, but communication with tho City of
Mexico Is established by way of Eagle
pass.

CLAY IMP): MAKIMI.

.Mill to the Kiln.
Frem Hie New York Sun.
The tiny from which the ordinary clny
pipe l made Is In Its natural stnte of a,
slate color; It rhnne to whlta Itt llrltlR.
That used in pipe factories' iicmtltout
comes mainly from Wondhrldne, N. J. As
receHed It Is In chunk'', large nnd small,
and in dust, something n suit coat comer,
nnd Its color Is not unlike thnt of cement.
The clay is soaked In tubs for ten or
twplve hours, until It has been sonkcd Into
a mass, to prepnrp It fer working. It Is
then put thrmigh n pua mill, In which It
Is mixed to make It or uniform consistency
nnd tn bring It to the right temperi It
Shotllil be like stiff .intis.h. As It comes
fiom the puit mill it is ttmde nf Into ball
or buiielipa iibcnit the slue of a peck mens
ure. Uiom the clny lhn prepared for use
without Hny admixture' whatever the pipes
ore made.
The lirst slep in the procesa Is the work
ing of portions of the clay into whnt are
railed tolls. A bunch of the prepared clny
Is placed upon 11 lirni h. and the roll maker
picks off two lumps or day. Which be lays
on a beiird In front of him oh the bench.
He rolls both lumps nt once, one under
each haml, rolling thetn out Into elongated
tapering shapes, with the thick end or
heads toward the thumbs, and the smaller
ehds mperwig out on the little linger side
of the mind-. These tire the first crude
shape.i of tho pipe, though their resem
blance to a pipe Would not be detected
If one did not know thnt wns what wns
to be made of them; the roll looks, pi r
haps, more like a horseshoe nnll, with n
round Instead of n llnttcned bend, and n.
round Ihatcnd of n flattened nnll: or It
may be of a shape unite different fiotn
thnt, Its shnpe and length or the stem
purt depending on the style of pipe to be
inn do.
The rolls nrp lnld on bontds in bunches
of dozens, and are put nwny to stlfTcn.
After ten or twelve hours they nre ready
ror molding. There are different kinds
or molds, varying In some mlnnr detnlls,
hut practically alike In operation. Some
molds are, however, much more elaborate
In construction than others, the mold ror
an ordinary pipe being in iw-o pieces, whllp
the mold for n fnncy pipe might be In 11
half a dnr.en or more pieces. A pipe fnc
tory might have hundreds of different
molds for nlmost ns many styles of pipes,
molds for plnln pipes nre made of Iron;
those ror elaborate stjles are sometimes
made of brass or other compositions.
The mold for nn ordinary plain pipe Is of
two pnits, hinged at the bottom, nnd open
ing vertically lengthwise. Ily the plpe
mnkcr's side Is n board of rolK He holds
by a handle nt one end a wire that Is to
make the hole In thp tm of the pipe. He
picks up n roll nnd draws the stem pint
down on the wire; there Is the hole in tho
stem of the pipe nirendv made. He bends
me ncau enu up a utile io m.'iKo 11 go mare
easily into the mold, and Hint touch adds
distinctly to the pipe look of the roll. He
puts the roll In one side of the mold nnd
shuts thp mold up together and puts It In
a pi ess, bowl up. The closing together of
the parts or thu mold upon the pliable clay
has already shaped the pipe upon the out
side, nnd there s a hole through the stem,
the wire still remaining In it, but it has no
bowl. A single turn or a side screw holds
the mold llrmly In the press. Over the
press Is a lever to which Is attached whnt
is palled n stopper: It Is like n plunger at
tached to the under side or the lever by a
Pivot. When the lever l brought down the
stopper is forced Into the clay In the head
of the mold, and so the bowl is formed.
The mold Is taken from the press and the
surplus clay nrouitd the edges of the mold
pressed out when the mold wns shut to
gether, Is shaved off with n knife. The
wire Is drawn from the stem and the now
completely formed pipe Is set aside. The
celerity with which the work Is done Is
surprising. An expert plpeinnker enn make
seventy-five gross of common pipes In a
week; forty gross, however, veould be
about the nvprage.
When the pipe comes from tho mold, the
clay still damp, It Is n little darker In
shade than tile clay in Its natural stutc.
The bowl almost glistens in Its smooth
ness. The new pipes ure set nwny in racks
to dry out somewhat before the next step
In the process, the flaMilng. Ten or twelve
hours In a temperatuie of 73 deg. Is sulii
dent. There remains on the pipe a little
seam where the mold has come together.
In finishing the pipe .1 wire Is run through
the stem again, to 1 l.ar the hole if there
should be any distinction, and the wire
serves also ns a ban. lie with which to hold
the pipe. The sentn- are taken off. as Is
also the little burr ..f clay at the bottom
of the bowl of the pipe, over the bole- from
the stem. At this tnge, too, the pipe is
stamped with Its brmd. If it is to have one.
if it is anything mure than a slmplp letter
or two on cither side of the pipe. Designs
are sometimes cut in the mold, but ir it
should be one across the pipe the mold
seam would run through it, and a smooth
er finish can be Iven by stamping after
the pipe has emne from the mold. Now
tho wire Is drawn and the pipe Is set back
on the board, and the board is again
placed In the dtying rack; this time tho
pipes are to be thoroughly dried, and twenty-four
hours Is .iliout the time required.
Then the pipes are put into saggers, to bo
placed In tho kiln. The sagger Is 11 cylindrical-shaped
pot of fire clay, twelve or
llfteen Inches high, and or nbout the same
diameter. '1,'he lung stemmed pipes are
laid in the sugger with regularity: the
snorter siemint m such pipes, lor instance,
as are to be tlni'-heil later, with stem piece
or another matt mil, nnd. perhaps, to be
colored In imitation of meerschaum, and
which have stems so short flint there is
no danger of bending them, ate simply
laid in loosely, un tho average a sagger
will hold about n gross of pines, of some
pipes more, of ethers less, depending on
the size. The s.iggers, filled, are stacked
up In the kiln in stands, a kiln of ordi
nary dimensions holding twenty-one stands
or stacks nine high. The pipes nre first
subjected for ulimit live bonis to a com
paratively mild heat, which Is called
soaking; then the full heat of the kiln is
put on and continued for twelve or four
teen hours. Tin n tho kiln is opened and
the saggers are taken out. with the now
completely heated pipes. Thoy come out
white.
Fancy clay pipes are made In the same
manner ns common clny pipes. In the
making of the more oladorato pipes, ns,
for Instance, one with 11 bowl in the
semblance of a bend, more elaborate
molds may be rcniircd. Ah stated above,
molds of hair tl dozen or more places nre
sometimes used. 1 if course, it takes more
time to make such pipes, but the general
process followed is the same. Tho proper,
ties of thp clays used In tho muiiiil'nefiirp
of plpos are. of 1 ours p. known, and tho
effect produced upon them by bent. Tho
stnte colored clays used, an hero de
scribed, burn white; some red clays burn
red and some pink, and so on.
There are some similar shapes of clay
pipes that are standard and that are sold
year after year constantly in great num
bers. There nre somii other shapes mid

clny pipes are made In great variety: pop.

An hour Inter John A rebel rose from

turtit'il to go out, to Mud Mr. Hnross
standing; In the dewrwny with 11 troubled
look on bis good-humorcM! old fnco.
"John," be faltered, "I've somethltiR to

"What Is tho mntter','" naked Arcbel,
Inughlng. "Hits there been 11 grand

wluitpvpi It Is. I can stand It."
"No. no: it's good news," snld Mr.
Utiross; but bis voire shook a little ns be
scanned John Archel's face, and In hl
heart be wondered if It would bo good
news.
"I'm n bad one to bont about the bush,
Arcbel. The news concerns your wife,"
"My wife! How do you " began
Arched, nnd stopped confusedly.
"Try to be culm, my denr fellow. You
know how, when the- ship In which yoti
both were foundered, you believed her to
be drowned?"
"Hclleved! Didn't I make nil In
quiries? She wns In the- bont that lins

men stayed on the- wreck and were
rescued nlmost by n mlr.iote. Hollcvod!"
"Hclleved, John. Tho boat bus been
heard of."
"Heard of! She she Is "
His white lips could not frame the
question.
' x os she Is alive," said Mr. Iluross,
Bravely.
John Arcbel dropped heavily Into bis
chair and covered bis face with hid
hands.
"The boat's crew have endured great
privation nnd suffering," went on Mr.
Iluross. "They were cast nwny on the
coast of Africa and fell union"; some
savage tribes. One or two of them were
killed. The rest escaped, and after sur
viving; nlnios. Incredible dangers, nian
nu;ed to reach England. That accounts
for the cxtrnordlnnry silence, for, nf
course, it Is six months since you went
on that fatal voyage."
There was no answer from tho silent
llgure In the clinlr.
Mr. Huross waited uncertainly.
l'ri'sently John Arcliol raised his
ghastly lace and fijioke unsteadily.
"I suppose I must go to her. Where
Is she'.'"
"In my room."
"So npiir!" and there was despair Jn
the two little wortls.
Mr. Huross laid his band on his friend's
shoulder and spoke kindly.
"I'm afraid this Is not altogether a
pleasure to you, John?"
"Pleasure?" echoed tho other, with a
bitter laugh. "No."
"I 1 am afraid," faltered the good
natured old man, "that you were not
altogether happy with your wife; but It
seems to me that she has come back
softened, -snirt enger to seo you again,
and and It is your plain duty to receive
her kindly, John."
"My duty to her! Ah! you don't under
stand." And in an agony of impatient pain,
John Arcbel got up and paced rest
lessly nbout the room.
"She's waiting for you, John," Mr.
Btiross reminded hlm nt last.
Without another word, Arcbel turned
and went towards his partner's room.
As ho pushed open thu door and
entered, bis wife came towards htm
with outstrotcbc-el bands.
"Martbn," he said, "I did not expect to
see you."
Her hands fell to her sides and the
smile faded from her thin face.
"No," she said coldly, "I suppose not."
"We gave your boat up for lost," bo
wont on, desperately striving to speak
in bis ordinary tone.
"Mr. Huross has, perhaps, explained
how we were situated. He has been
long enough away," she said tartly.
How well John Arcbel knew that tone.
"Yes, be has explained," bo said
slowly.
"And where am I to go? I have been
home and found tho house shut up."
"Yes, yes," said Arcbel hastily. "1 I
didn't care nbout living there, you seo.
We'd better go tu a hotel "
"Where are you living?" she Inter
posed sternly.
"1 oli, I'm X couldn t tnke you there.
It's very" began her husband, con
fusedly; and then, pulling himself to
Ketber. "You go to a hotel, Martha.
You'd better go to the hotel; that
will do, nnd I'll Join you at 7 for dinner.
I'm very busy now, I'll see you Into a
en I).
Ho bold the door open for her to pass
out.
Hho moved forward, nnd then stopped
and looked tip al hlm.
"Aren't you going to kiss me?" she
said, with a smile, Which In a pretty
woman would have been fascinating, but
which in her was only grim and for
bidding. "You're not very demonstra
tive, J must cay,"
"You taught mo to bo demonstrative,
didn't you?" said John, with n bitter
laugh, us be bent and gnvo the duty
kiss; and thinking of nil the long, dreary
years he and his wife had spent to
ge'lher, and of all the long, dreary years
they were yet doomed to spend to
gether, he shivered.
"Good-by," he said, ns ho put Martha
Into a cab and gave the man the address
at the hotel, "Seven to-night."
"He never snld ho was glad to seo
mp. lie didn't want to kiss me," Martha
was saying lo herself, as she was
whirled away; nnd something very like
tears stood In her sharp eyes as she
moaned. "And I do Jovo him dearly."
II.
John Arcbel left bis olllce early thnt
nfteinoon, for the clock bail not struck
t when ho mndo bis way down the busy
streets and walked away In a south
weuierly direction. He did not call a
hansom, and so an unseen wa tcber was
aide to follow him easily enough.
After a fairly long walk, during which
he soeineil feverishly preoccupied with
bis own thoughts, ho rang the bell nt a
small house in a good neighborhood, and
was Instantly admitted Into a wiirm,
well furnished ball. An inner door
opened, and a pretty girl of 20 ran out
find greeted him rapturously.
"You elear old John!" she cried, "to
come home so early? It has been such a
long tiny without you."
"llus It, darling?" lie responded fondly,
eyen while baying to himself, "How shall
I tell her?"
He followed her into the drawing' room
where she hnd been sitting.
"I wa Just having tea,' she said, "and
thinking of our delightful afternoons In
Italy. You're just (n time. Alary," to
tho maid who answered tho call,
"another cup for your master,"
"I can't tell hor to-ntgbt," muttered
John to himself. "I'll leave it till to
morrow. I'm afraid." he said aloud,
"that you'll not be glad, darling, when
you hear why I've coma back so early."
"What 1 it, John dear?"
"Why, I'm suddenly called out of town,
love, to-night, on business urgent busi
ness "
'Horrid business to como between you
and your wife!" said the girl, with a
aweet smile.
"Shall you be afraid to be loft, dear?"
"Not this ntiif." she said laughingly!
"but mind1 it must not occur again."
John shivered ticnlti ns he looked
round the room nnd nt his lovely young
bride, nnd thought that It would occur
forever If only she knew nil.
He felt himself Utipiiunl to telling her
the truth, nnd rpsjiondptl to her guy
talk nnd drank bis ten like it tniiu In a
dreiim.
He got nwny from the bouse how he
hardly knew nnd walked nwny, menu
Inc to go and consult Mr. Huross.
"If only I'd told hlm that I was going
on my honeymoon." be thought; "but 1
wns afraid he would think It so soon
after , nnd she will be waiting."
At that thought ho summoned a pnss
Itig hnnsom, and in a few moments was
being swlfily driven to the - hotel.
lie did nut notice that another han
som kept so close to his own thnt It
might be snld to be following It, nor did
ho see the HgUro within It a woman
with a thin, hnggnrd face nnd eyes lit
tip with a certain determination which
brightened them almost Into benuty.
Ho b aped out ns bis hnnsom slopped.
The other hatisom drove up, turned
round, and Its occupant got nut so
rlutnily as to fall tight under tho
horse's hoofs.
In trying lo get up she fell ngnln be
fore John could rescue her, and this
time both horses had trampled tton her
before she was dragged away from the
frightened nnlmnls.
Slip lay very still In John's nrms ns ho
rnlsed her.
"Is she hurt, sir?" nsked the driver,
climbing down from his plnce.
"Hurt! I should think sol Whatever
made you do such a mnd thing ns to
turn round suddenly like thnt? You'd
better fetch a doctor as fast as you can."
"It was the lady's orders, sir. Hhe snld
ns I wus to turn to meet your hnnsom,
nnd no harm would V been done If she
hadn't got out so clumy."
The man drove oft for a doctor, nnd
the driver of John's hansom nsslsted
him to carry the poor mangled form Into
the house.
As the light fell on the pale fnco, John
started and nearly dropped bis burden,
"flreat benvent" be said; "It's my
wife!"
They lnld her on the bed, nnd the
doctor came and shook bis head over
her.
"Nothing can be done," he said. "It's
a question of hours."
Towards morning she opened her eyes.
"John," she murmured brokenly, "I
followed you. 1 saw her. I under
stand. I won't spoil your happiness. I
I did love you John "
She wns dead.
"Some Irregularity about our mar
rlnge, John? How strange."
"Well, dear, It's all my fault; but I
didn't know. You won't mind just being
married again, In case It should matter,
will you?"
"Not If you want It, dear; but I'd like
to know "
"You must trust me, darling."
"You know I do that, John," was tho
loving reply.
John Arcbel Is one of the happiest men
In London. Ills married life Is perfect;
but sometimes when he looks back to
that other marriage, he wonders If he
misjudged poor, plain Martha, and If
that fall under the cab was nn accident.
I.ANDINO ON. A roltLHSN SHOIti:.
The Ir.nclcr on Arriving Wonders Whnt
lo Ilo first.
When our steamer lands us In a for
eign port It matters little whether It Is
an English speaking port or not the
traveler who has not taken tho trip to
Europe before wonders what to do first,
according to a writer in Hnrper's Knzar.
Having donned our shore garments,
packed our steamer trunk and given It
to the room steward, who brings It to
the custom bouse for us, and having
given our fees to this same steward, our
stewards, our table steward and deck
steward, we hava nothing to do but wait
with our band baggage until the gang
way Is placed In position and we can
go ashore.
With our fellow passengers we enter
a largo room, where custom house of
llcers nbound on every side. They stand
behind long tables, upon which our hand
bags and rolls are placed, and which we
should prepare at once to unlock. A
cheerful compliance with the request to
open all packages does much to make
our passage through all custom bouses
pleasant and easy, und a person has dis
agreeable experiences who obeys the re
quirements of the law of the country
she is entering. Travelers, ns a rule,
and American travelers especially, nre
treated with consideration. They will
ask you, in French, Hot-ham or Italian,
"IIuvo you anything dutiable? and as
cigars and brandy are what they seek,
ope can truthfully answer In one word,
"Nothing" a word easily learned In all
three languages. When our hand bag
gage has bj'cii examined, ono of our
party usually stands guard over It, In
some out of the way corner, while the
others, with trunk keys In hand, wait
for the trunks to be brought from tho
steamer's hold. One claims them as they
appeal', and they all must be opened, as
a rule. As the place for examining
trunks Is large, a distinctly marked
trunk Is necessary.
A red ring or cross on the end of a
trunk Is seen nt a great distance, when
Initials are not distinguishable. Great
patience works wonders In a custom
house, and when rough hands plunge In
to every corner among our small number
of treasures, we are supposed to smil
ingly approve. The hat tray is nlways
attractive to thi-se guardians of thu
peace, and then a woman Is allowed to
mike known her feelings by a gentle
"Frent". garde, s'il vous plait!" or,
"IllttP, In acbt iiehmen!" or, again, the
sort Italian, "Hadale, per plticero:" all
or which Is simply "Please take care."
If a person preserves a calm Indifference)
nnd does not attempt to violate their
lnws, there Is nothing to dread In these
places of custom. Hut no fee Is ever
offered a custom house ollleinl.
After passing tho customs, a porter
carries our luggage to a cab, or, If wo
have too many trunks for a one-horse
carriage, we must take a larger one. A
one-horse cab can carry comfortably
two people with their hand baggnge, and
two small trunks In front with tho
driver. Wu direct the coachman to the
lintel previously decided upon, our de
cision having been reached by our red
bound Haedekcr.

Chamber's Journal: In many country
towns sedan chairs remained In use un
til a period well within the memory of
men still comparatively young. In Pe
terborough, for Instance, they were used
down to at leust ISliO; and ten years
later, ono solitary survivor might have
been seen in Exeter. At Newcastle one
wns still extant In 1SS.1, and at Hury ,St,
Edmunds In ison. Sir Walter Seott, In
Ills "Diary," mentions using a nedan
chair lit February, 1S31; and about the
same time, Lady Salibbury, who died
four years later, at the age of 85, was
In the habit of going to evening par
ties and other asseiiibllcs In her old
fashioned chair.
Sedan ehnlrs were still In common use
In Hath In the early yeais of the present
century, and extremely useful and con
venient they were fur Invalids, The chair
could bo entered In tho ball of the hlrer'a
own home, and being borne to Its desti
nation, was carried right into tho
house, whete, the hall door being shut,
the chair could be opened, and Its occu
pant step forth Into as genial an atmos
phere as he or she had left.
With carriages or bath ehulrs, invalids
worn always endangered by tho exposed
transit between tho door of the carriage
and tho house door, Some six or seven
years ago there were rumors of 11 pos
sible revival of the old chairs at Hath.
There are no fewer than four Lady Uos
tons, living at the present time, out of
whom three are elowagers. The father and
grandfather of the preent Lord Hoston
who I fond of country life and pursuits,
and Is a born musician married slsteis,
the grandfather marrying (he younger.
Hoth of these ladles arc living, and In addi
tion there Is Lmly Itoaton, the stepmother,
und Lady Hoston, the wife ot the present
peer. Thus there are more Lady Bostons
than v-u Lady Alle.burys.

Since the nppenrnuce of nlblno girls In
side shows and dime museums the gen
eral public has Indulged In considerable
Hiiceulatlou as to whole tho tnnnngera
of Hipsp frtftk aggregations, procure their
rrlszly-hnltcil specimens, Although sel
dom met with at ither places there Is
at Cape Cod a settlement of these pink
eyed and white-haired people. For gefi
etatlons the Ulttslcy finally, known In
the section ns the "whlte-linlrcd Pitts
leys," have been albino. They have In
termnrrled, and although clannish In
the extreme, .vents itg.i took Into tho
family fold a mun named ltey.iolds, In
Whose children the peculiarity cropped
out nnd lidded the "whlte-hnlred Rey
nolds" to the little army of Capo Cod's
human curiosities,
Until unite recently a dozen or fifteen
Plttsley albinos might have been fotinil
within halt as many miles of each other
and sometimes under the same roof. Hut
the families In which there are albinos
have scattered lately and spreatl over
the most lonely parts of tho country
from Freetown to Wiirchnm, at tho en
trance to Capo Cod.
The museum albino nnd the albino In
real life have little In common. The
albino at home is disappointing. His
or her hair Isn't crimped to the museum
limit. It doesn't stand out a la Circas
sian. In tho natural Plttsley state tho
nlblno hnlr Is dingy, becnuse they don't
know any better, nnd If they did they
probably wouldn't ndopt tho modern
methods ot washing hnlr.
Tho eyes of tho nlblnos In this region
prove their albinism beyond question.
They nre usually described as pink, like
rabbits' eyes. They are extremely
weak and nlmost closed, so thnt It Is
dlfllcult to get a square look Into tho
eye Itself. When the eye is opened the
lid Is lifted only for a second, and It
takes a quick look to (Uncover thnt thu
pupil Is dark red and surrounded with
a lighter red ring, while the ball ot tho
eye Is pale pink and surroundeel with the
pinkish rltn of the eyelid. Tho effect
would bo thoroughly pink If tho eye re
mnlned at rest. It Is almost Impossible
to obtain a direct look Into the eye, be
cause from the eye of the healthy al
bino red light seems to dart, while tho
pupil quivers and dilates and seems to
move unceasingly.
It Is over a century and a halt since
the nppenrauce of the first albino was
recorded In tho Plttsley tribe. Since that
time probably more than 100 have been
born bearing this iiame or having
mothers from this family. At ono time
It Is estlmnted that only a few less thnu
fifty albinos were living within a radius
or twenty-live miles. Uarnum might
hero have held an albino congress If ho
had been able to engago all of these
people with the wonderful wine-red pu
pils. It has always been among the
legends of the country thnt tho great
showniali did recruit his collection from
this locality; but to-day the proud Pitts
leys deny indignantly that IJarnum ever
had enough money to engage even ono
of them to pose In public,
The origin of the family Is connected
with one of the wickedest episodes of tho
early history of the New World. There
is even a chance that perhaps some
Plttsley was a relative or friend of tho
sweet and pious Evangeline. When tho
English deported from the vales of Ar
cadia the families of the French neu
trals and scattered them in almost every
settlement from the mouth of the Pe
nobscot around to Loulslnna, Freetown,
which was near the colony of Plymouth,
had not been able to send Its full etuotti
of men Into the army. So in tlr-' dis
tribution of the French from Arcadia,
fifteen men, with some women and chil
dren, were left In Freetown. The bitter
est of all was the separation and split
ting up of families. The people were
idled with dejection, nnd tho poorest ot
them apparently built some rude lodge
in the forests and took no care how
they lived. None spoke their language.
They were strangers In habits and man
ners. Men bail been separated from
wives and daughters, and wives left
without their husbands.
Just what the name of the French
neutral ancestor of the albino Pittsleys
may have been no research has ever
revealed. On the town records, until
within fifty years, the name has been
Plggsloy. In many cases the same Plggs
ley has been corrupted Into "lloggsley "
The first appearance of pink eyes and
white hair was In a Robert Plttsley,'
somewhere In the first half of the eight
eenth century. Some place It as early
as 17.11. From that time elown the al
bino characteristics have been continu
ally reproduced. It is believed that con
tinual Intermarriage has been largely
Instrumental In handing down the pink
eyes and white hair. The Pittsleys were
clannish. They wouldn't mingle with
other families, much less take wives
from them. They clubbed by themselves,
but oftener one family mndo a home for
Itself In some deserted hotiso or jacket
house In a lonely part of the woods or
out-of-the-way end of a township. Thpy
rarely came to town to live. In their
ways and their love of outdoor life these
people show many of the characteristics
or Gypsies, and another point which
allies them to the wandering clans la
their ability to "swap" horses, a busi
ness at which moiU all of the males are
experts. They are illiterate, and ac
count for their physical peculiarities by
the theory that one of their ancestors
had his hair turned white after a fright,
and bequeathed his curious hirsute pos
session to bis children.
