The Beautiful Creoles.
New Orleans Letter to llaUinioro American.
Before the Creole women all the
other attractions of tho Crescent City
fadeaway. - No better timo than last
night, and few belter places than the
Washington Artillery Hull, could
have been chosen to view them at an
advantage. These aro tho women
who had caused duels, Inspired poet
ry, elevated manners, mado men hap
py or miserable, and fixed for them
selves a plico iu history. Many of
their best, and all their most fashion
able representatives wcro there. They
waited in their carriages on side
streets until tho beautiful pageant of
Momus had passed, and thou they pro
ceeded to the hall, the numinal beca
slon being the reception of Rex,
where peonlo from ovcry State In the'
Union, and from uc;u'ly every . quii.n
try ttiiJei' the si i it, had cotiio ' to see
them They were all chaperoned, of
cotirse ; for French and Spanish ideas
on tho subject aro firmly fixed here.
Over a thousand people stood in the
street to look at tho ladles as they
arrived, and entered the hall. They
began to arrive about 9 o'clock, and
an hour later there was a tremeud-
nous jam of people at tho door, so
that the ticket-takers were compelled
for a time, to retuso ' admittance to
some of tho Into arrivals. The capac
ity of the hull for dancing Is about
2,000. but the number of people in tho
place at one timo was nearly 5,000,
making it Impossible to torn) sets,
Hut few of the iruosts had come to
dance. The native peoplo came chief
ly, to be presented to Rox, and the
strangers, came lor the purpose at
readv mentioned. Some of tho la
dies turned away froiu the place
without entering at all, rather than
have the discomfort of being In the
great crowd. American girls, natives
of New Orleans, were there, of
course, and tlioy had pre-eminently
the charm that belongs to Southern
women, 'but their beauty was the
beauty of the individual, aud not like
that ol the Creoles the oeauty of a
class. It is because of their attrac
tions as a class that the feminine Cre
oles are famous. Any one of a hun
dred in the great assembly might
havo been selected as a type; and.
briefly, their characteristics are (lark
brown or black hair, brown eyes,
intensely brilliant, a clear, soft, bright
complexion at least iu the young
people, and a form which Thorwald
seu would have chosen, of all others,
for his Venus. But lids is nut all.
They have voices that would make a
Utile bound harxe, with a slight ac
cent something more than agreeable
to persons living larlher Aorlli. Aud
iu conduct, although as gentle as the
breeze from tho gulf, they have latent
spirits, which, when occasson re
el u ires, transforms then into heroines.
They appeared like this to tho stran
ger at the reception that night, but
they are seeu at their best iu their
homes, for homo means something to
the in like strong families ties.

Eggs as Food.
Eggs of various kinds are largely
used as food for man and it is scarce
ly possible to exaggerate their value
lit this capacity, so simple and con
venient are they in their form, and
so manifold may be their transforma
tions. They are exceedingly deli
cious, highly nutritious and easy of
digestion, ana when (he shell It In
cluded they may be said to contain
Iu themselves all that Is reiiireu bli
the constitution of tho body. It bus
been claimed for ihcm that they may
be served in about six-htiudred'ways,
although il is generally found that
the more simply they aro prepared
tho more they are approved. Al
though other eggs than those of birds
are eaten for instance, turtle eggs
it is generally agreed lhat tho eggs
of the common fowl and of the plover
possess the richest and sweetest flavor.
The eggs of ducks aud geese are fre
quently used iu cookery, but they
are of loo course a nature to bo culen
alone. The eggs of turkey and of
the pea-lion are highly esteemed lor
some purposes. The weight of an
ordinary new-laid hen's egg is from
ono and a half U) two and a hull'
ounces avoid upois, and the quauity
of dry and solid matter contained iu
it amounts to about two-hundred
grains. In one-hundred parts, about
len parts consists of shell, sixty ot
white and thirty of yolk. Tho while
ot tho egg contains a larger portion
of water than the yolk. It contains.
no fatty matter, but consists ohlelly
of albumen in a dissolved state. All
the fatty matter of the egg Is accum
ulated in the yolk which contains re.
lativelv a smaller proportion of ni
trogenous matter and a larger pro
portion of solid matter than the
white. Therefore, lu an alimentary
point of views, tho white and yolk
Ilitter considerably from each other,
the former being mainly a simple
solution of albumen, tho latter being
a solution ot a moduied form ot al
bullion, together with a quantity of
fat. Raw and . lightly-boiled eggs
aro easy of digestion. It is said that
raw eggs are more easily digested
than cooked ones; but this may be
doubted 11 the egg is not overcooked

wherein were stone benches and tools

was found located m a wide court or

most wouderlul of all was lying be
