A QUAINT SPANISH CUSTOM.
Teo Old time Amsname*t of Cwuream
brakl3a-:. e itlng Sport.
Those who are acquainted with the cuse
toms of old Spanish towns in 'alifornia
know what eL'csar-nes are, and are prob
ably fami!iar with the ways of using
them and the additional enjoyment they
lead to all dance sa here they are turd.
To inch of our readers who are nat well
posted in t!:e matter we will attempt to
give a few words of explanation.
The origin of the custom of eraraone
breaking is protably surrounded with as
impenetrable mystery as the identity of
the ,Man in the Iron Mask." It was
brought to California by the early Span
ish families from Mexico. anti up to with
in a few years past it was an attractive
feature of every dance given during a
certain portion of the year. Cascarone
season begins. according to custom, at 12
o'clock Christmas night and lasts till Ash
Wednesday. and any one of our old citi
zens can tell of the grand times at casca
rone balls in the "flush days" when the
custom was at its height. Dances were
of almost nightly occurrence then, and
hundrs.lo of dozens of casearonts were
broken in an evening, and many a poor
family derivad a handsome income from
the mannufature and sale of cascarones.
They sold a:t $1 a dozen in the early part
of the evening, and in the "'wee ma'
hours," when the commodity became
scarce, an ounce of golddust has been
known to be given for a single dowzn.
Many interesting stories could be told
of the eascarone balls of the past, but
only one will be mentioned as an in
stance of the popularity of this peculiar
feature of the balls. On one occtasion. at
a ball given at the residence of Don Jose
Ahbrego, Pete Serrano, then a iuchaclho,
was on hand selling cascarones. A gen
tleman approached and asked what he
would take for his casearones. -"One
dollar a dozen." was the answer. '"How
many have you?" was the next inquiry.
*"Forty dozen." 'All right, I'll take
them." 'aking the basket, he started
down the hall. but had not taken a dozen
steps when he was surroulnded by a
number of young ladies, and in a moment
all hands were diving into the basket.,
coming out with donuhlelandsful and
crushing them on his head, while he
manfully strove to return a few of the
compliments lie received. In five minutes
not one of the forty domen cascarones re
mained whole. The modus operandi of
casuarone making is very simple, and
aboult as follows: Into an empty eggshell
-whole, extcpt for an opening in one
end just large enough to remove the
original contents-is placed about a tea
spoonful of finely chopped paper of
various bright colors and gold tinsel:
then the opening is neatly closed by
pasting a piece of colored paper over it.
and then the cascarone is all ready for
In Mexico, in the good old times, cuando
habia mucho oro, gold dust mixed with
diamond dut. was often used to till the
eggshells at thtr swell fandangoes given
by the old grandees. And it is done
occasionaly nowadays by some of the
wealthy old Dons who wish to do the
thing up in style. Other ways of filling
the shells was to use finally perfumed
powder. and sometimes rare and costly
peifumes were used. Very often the
lshells were beautifully decorated, and
somntimes hand painted. In Monterey,
before the decline of the cust, nm. the shells
were often oldored in fanciful tdesi;ns like
Easter eggs, and at other timer tastefully
decortled with different colors of paper.
('hpsid paper and tinsel were usually
put in the shells, but on more than one

sary that one should be acquainted: in
fact, it is a sort of "-mashing" proceeding
all through. The act of breaking a ca .
carone on another'' head is to be con
sidered a compliment by the recipient,
who is in honor bound to return it at
tlhe first opportunity. The proper way
to break them is to crush the shell
in the hand over the wprson's head,
allowing its contents to fall on the head.

once broken by some adventurous maiden
or Idle.ky man the contagion soon
spreads. and in a short time everybody is
chasing arou.wl the room, rea!;ing cas
carones indiscriminately, and receiving
them from all sides. These mock battles
usually oc-cur between (l3anIs. Years
ago a sort of game was played in the
breaking of cascarones. It was an ob.
ject-like in the old game of "*tag"--to
break the last carcarone on another. The
one breaking tle last was allowed the
privilege of asking the other every time
they met: "lHow are my chickens?" and
the other would be expected to give a
present for the benefit of the chickens
candy, etc., being usually given. This
was allowed to be kept up until the next
cascarone dance. when the game was all
played over. -Monterey (Cal.) Argus.

D' Qhlincey. in hihs wonderful ,tIudy of
the early CaeMas , the palar in whichl his
power of suggestive narrative and I ;. e.n
trol over the resources of langui,e are
perhaps seen at their best, is. so toniik.
driven by wonder at the wild willfulness
of his subjects to suggest that all the
Camars of the Julian house were mad.
Caligula may have been, though his
symptoms. as recorded by Suetonius, are
rather those of delirium tremens; but the
theory which makes of the grand though
sinister statesman. Tiberius. who gave the
Roman monarchy its final impress. a m.ln
of disordmerd mind in the ordinary medi
cal sense, will not readily be accepted as
cornrt. lie was no more nmad than
Philip II. whose private life was much of
the same kind.
It would, as we read history, he far
truer to say that power, when really ab
solute, so albsdute that the volidion is
executive and the necemity for self
restraint is unfelt, produces of itIelf a
special mental disease. which is not in
sanity, because it would disappear with
the power, but has at intervals, like the
passion of children, many of its external
symptoms and effects. Nero. the artist
emperor. who was always seeking the
impossible, and whom the early Chris
tians believed to be the veritable incarna
tion of evil. may be said undoubtedly to
have suffered from it: so did one or two
of the Italian tyrants of the Rennaissance:
and so, in our judgment, though it is a
disputable point, did Ivan the Terrible.
Power of that sort, though it does not al
ways in;ure the minl-for several of the
Cawsars and some of the emperors of
Delhi weire men of splendid sanity and
judgment-when it happens to fall to a
