American Women of Letters.
Wo do not mean to be unallant, and
the laditts will please pardon us; but'
have we any American women of let
ters? American men of letters we cer
tainly have or have had, men worthy
to stand by the sido of any but the very
chief of the men of letters acrosa the
sea; but where in America can we find
a George Eliot or a Mrs. Browning?
"In Franco alone," onco said George
Eliot, "if the writings of women were
swept away, a serious gap would bo
made in the national history." We
know of but ono American woman's
writing, which if "swept away," would
make "a serious gap in the national
history." That is Mrs. Stowe 8 "Uncle
Tom's Cabin." And "Uncle Tom's
Cabin" is not literature; it was a sconio
effect; and Mrs. Stowe's later writings
have not confirmed her scat in our
Wo have had our Anne Bradstrect,
our Hannah Adams, our Phillis Wheat
ley, our Mrs. Sigourney, our Margaret
Fuller, our Alico and Phoebe Cary, our
Fanny Fern. And who were theseP
Of Margaret Fuller, doubtless wo shall
hear and know more. Hers is a loom
ing tiguro as the past recedes. She is
in some sense, though with many dif
ferences, of course, tho Poe of her sex,
a riddle not yet read, a victor not yet
crowned. Two lives of her are now in
preparation; her star is risiug.
As for living women, there are plenty
of authors among them writers of po
etrv, writers of novels, writers of books
for bovs and girls; but who of them will
come forwaruand claim the lurel abovo
her sisters? The woman of letters must
have some masculinity in her1 composi
tion; her finer metal must be streaked
with iron ore; she must carry the sledge
hammer in her hand as well as wear
the flower at her throat. She must be
a Miriam, a Deborah prophetess as
well as poet; a woman who fathoms
philosophies as well as fashions; who
can thunder as well as lighten.
Our American literary women are
tender, sweet, persuasive, soothing.
They write us smooth versos in tho
magazines. They sing us lullabies by
tho cradle. They tell clever stories.
Once in a whilo thev burst out with a
battle-hymn, or catch thosocrctof child
hood on the point of their pens, or re
cover the jewel of character from the
mire of conventionality. What is Saxo
Holm? Is it a woman? The most
meaning voice in the chorus of the hour
is from behind a mask; the most bril
liant penwoinan of to-day is soured in
tamper; the niont passionate is morbid.
There is room on the stago for a largo
framed, strong-limbed, bright-eyed,
loving-hearted, whole-souled, quick
handed American woman of letters.

On tho Woodward avenue car yesterday
was a pair, and they began:
"Awful storm, wasn't it?"
"They say it has ruined the wheat."
"Don t doubt it, sir. Wheat was just
in the right stage to be mined."
"And it has killed the fruit, I pre
sume?" "It probably has. I don t expect to
see an apple or peach this season."
"Must have rotted the corn?"
"Oh, of course. Corn was just in the
susceptible slate. Wo shan't have, iny
corn this year.
"The farmer must le discouraged?"
"Eutircly so. My hostler was telling
me that the milkman told him that the
owner of tho dairy' had seen a farmer
who said he should plow up his orch

tJL needed a little healthful exercise and
was looking for something that would
bo full of vigorous enthusiasm, find at
the same time promote the healthful

rather difficult. I tried most every

help me exercise, , or go along with mt
when I exercised. Some men can go
away to a desert Isle and have fun with
d urn b-hells and a horizontal bar,' but to
mo It Would Seem dull ' and conmion-
filace after a while, and I would yearn
or more humanity.
1 Two of us finally concluded to play
billiards, but wo were only amateurs
and tho owner intimated that he would
want the table for Fourth of July, so we
broke off in the middle of tho first game
and I paid for it.
Then a younger brother said he had a
set of boxing gloves in bis room, and
nlflimifrh T vend tltn tollni nml it'iri lcinir.
cf arm's he would hold up as long us fre
could and I might hammer him until 1
gained strength and finally got well.
I accepted this ofl'er because I had oft
en regretted that I had not made myself
familiar with this art and also because I
knew it would create a thrill of interest
and lire me with ambition ami that's
what a hollow-eyed invalid needs to put
him on the road to recovery.
The boxing glove is a largo fat mit
ten with an abnormal thumb and a
string at tho wrist by which you tie it
on, so that when you feed it to your ad
versary he cannot swallow it and choke
himself. I had never seen any boxing
gloves before, but my brother said they
were soft and wouldn't hurt anybody.
So we took ofl'someof our raiment and
put them on. Then we shook hands. I
can remember distinctly yet that we
shook hands. That was to show that
we were friendly and would not slay
My brother is a great deal younger
than I am and so I warned him not to
get excited and come for me with any-
thlni that would look like wild ana un-
goVeinablo fury because I might in the
neat 01 debate pile his jaw upon 111s
forehead and fill his car full of sore
thumb. Ho said that was all riirlit and
he would try to bo cool and collected.
Then wo put out our right toes close
together and I told him to bo on his
guard. At that moment I dealt him a
terrific blow aimed at his nose, but
through a clerical error of mine it went
over his shoulder and spent itself in tho
wall of the room shattering a small,
hollv wood bracket for which I paid
him $11,75 afterward. I did not wish to
buy the bracket because I had two at
homo, but ho was arbitrary about it
and I bought it.
We then took another athletic pos
ture, and in two seconds the air was
full of poulticed thumb and buckskin
mitten. 1 soon detected a chance to put
ono in where my brother could smell 01
it, but I never knew just where it struck,
for at that moment I ran up against
somothing with the pit of my stomach
that made mo, throw up the sponge
alonsr with some other groceries, the
names of which I cannot now recall, j
IWy brother then proposed that we
take oft the gloves, but I thought that I
had not sufticientlv nunished him. and
that another round would complete the
conquest, which was tnon almost with
in my grasp. I took a bismuth powder
and squared myself, but in warding off
a left-hander, I forgot about my adver
sary's right and ran mv nose into the
middle of his boxing glove. Fearing
that 1 had injured him, 1 retreated rap
idly on my elbows and shoulder-blades
to tho corner of the room, thus giving
him amplo time to recover. By this
moans my younger brother's features
were saved and are to-day as symmet
rical ns my own. !
I can Btill cnuzh up pieces of hoxinjr
gloves, and when I close my eyes I can
see calcium lights and blue phosphor-

am thoroughly convinced that there is
no physical exercise which yields the
same amount of health and elastic vigor
to tho puncher that the manly art docs.

"If you will come down Into the en-glno-room
I will show you tho largest
snake you ever saw. Those boes bold
huge pythons, which wore taken at
Sandabunt, near Calcutta." In tbe en-gino-room
there were two large-dry-'
goods boxf r and a ' number of visitors.
Mr. Hagonboek, armed with a stout
cudgel and a piece of carpet; raised the
lid of the larger box. There" were five
of tbe largest snakes ever brought to
America. The largest was twenty feet
long and seven inches tbrongh. They
writhed around the box, coiling them
selves Into innumerable hard anddouble
knots, and discounted the aloohollo ser
pent in realistic effect. An inquisitive
observer stuck his head over the box and
presented a line mark for tho big snake,
who would certainly have disfigured his
countenance if It had not tocenbamper
cd by his companions. It had to bo
pounded on tho head with a stick bofure
it would retire, and tho timid members
of tho company armed themselves with
rakes and hoes and viewed the socond
box from a safe distance. The snakes
had not boon fed for threo months.

A scandal or quarrel, or murder, Is
often explained by tho statement that
"there is a woman at tho bottom of it"
as the man said when his wife fell in
to the well. There is generally a woman
at the bottom of everything; but tho
Capitol tit Washington is a notable ex
ception. There is a woman on top of
that. Xorri.itown Herald.

ISO THE SUMMER TO BANTA FE, NEW
Sauta Fe, New Mexico, is the oldest city
in tho United States. It has readied the
end of its first third of a thousand years-
its terlio-millenml period. Tho Tertio-JIil-lennial
Celebration and Mining and Indus
trial Exposition, which will be inaugurated
there on the 2d of July and close on the 3d
of August, will be an event of great histo
rical as well as practical importance to the
country at large. It is intended to com
memorate the three hundred and thirty
third anniversary of the Spanish settlement
of the place.
Which will conntituto the practical part of
the celebration, will bo an epitome of the
mineral, agricultural, horticultural, stock
and general industrial resources and capa
bilities of tbe Territory. Those, therefore,
who aro interested in either mining, agri
culture orstock-raisiug will have a good op
portunity to visit New Mexico this season,
is the low tare will be a great inducement
to make tho trip. The development of the
mines of this vast region has but begun,
yet in the past year the proportionate in
crease in tho output of ore was'greater than
in any other State 01 Territory. New Mex
ico's showing at the mining exposition held
at Denver last season showed, more clearly
than anything else, tho vastness of its min
It has been the general belief heretofore
that agriculture in New Mexico would not
pay. This is an unfortunate error. At the
exposition will be seen samples of all sorts
of fruits and field products which vie with
those of prolific Kansas. With" irrigation
the soil of the Territory can be made to
vield immensely, Hnd there is no pursuit
mere remunerative than that of farming.
Agricultural products, of all kinds, bring
high prices upon a ready market, always
accessible in the crowing mining towns
and tho cost of raising is comparatively
small. As a cattle and sheep country, too,
New Mexico cannot be surpassed. Her
valleys and mesas afford fine grazing
Grounds for countless herds. A3 the cole-
bratinn at Santa Fu will be tho means of
drawing a larger number of people into the
Territory than usual, owing to the cheap
fare, an opportunity will be offered tlmse
who may be interested in stock-raising
' Besides the practical, the Tertio-Millcnial
will" embrace many features the most novel
and romantic. For instance, three days
the 18th, 10th, and 20th of July will be
devoted to the presentation of historic
scenes. These will represent the period
which has transpired since tho settlement
of the city, each day to represent a century
ol history and progress. The three civili
zations will also be represented that
which cxiftcd at the time of the coming of
the conqueror.", that which tho Spaniards
brought with them and that which followed
the American occupation of 1846. These
representations will be illustrated by caval
cades in costume, indicative of the several
distinctive expeditions into New Mexico
and the surrounding territory. There will
also be numerous tableaux, the whole com
bining to make one of the most novel and
interesting exhibitions ever witnnrsed in
this country. Thero will, in addition, be
various Indian games, races and dances by
the Pueblos, descendants of the ancient in
habitants of the Territory, ambuscades and
sham fights by tho Zunis, with exhibitions
of their peouliar rites and ceremonies, one
of which will bo a primitive dance repre
senting the gods and heroes of their folk
lore mythology; native Mexican games,
dances and juggling; original Aztec dances,
in which both Mexicans and Indians will
take part; various Mexican sports and the
grand fandango; war and other peculiar
dunces by tho Mescalero and
Jicarilla Apaches; exhibitions by Mexican
vacqucros in throwing the lariat;
a mounted tournament, iu cos
tumes of throe centuries ago:
the San Domingo and Sandia feasts, and
other peculiar and interesting ceremonies
which would take much space and time to
HOUND TRIP $40.
The rate for the round trip from Kansas
City and Atchison, including stop-off both
ways at the Las Vegas Hot Springs, is onlv
40, while the tare from all eastern points
is comparatively low. The Las Vegas Hot
Springs are among the most eelobrated in
the world, and a cool and comfortable re
sort for tho hot season. There is every in
ducement to go to New Mexico this sum
mer and it will be taken advantage of by
thousands who will Improve this opportun
