AN UNIQUE WEDDING.
It was tho practice during the civil
war to ship colored refugees, when com
petent, under the title of 'contrabands."
Among such candidates for muster on
the Rover, of the Mississippi squadron,
was a tall young buck with goggle eyes,
high cheek boues, a great splotch of a
nose, blubber lips, a mouth like a
shark's, and a skin which shone like
"What is your name?" asked my
clerk when this Apollo was presoutod
"What! No other name?"
Ho scratched his wool and looked be
wildered. "All right," said I, as I was in a hur
ry; "put him down 'Nothing!' "
So "Gaspar Nothing" was inscribed
on the records of the United States Na
vy. So much for the groom.
Rut the bride! flow can I picture
her? In need of an assistant waster
woman, we sent aboard of a boat load
of colored refugees and captured some
thing that looked like a compromise be
tween a girafl'e and ouiang-outang.
Language is inadequate to paint her
portrait. She was wondrously tall and
uglv, and angular and awkward; long
neck, long arms, long legs and long all
over. Clad in her long, gray planta
tion frock, she loomed up like a walk
ing Cleopatra's Needle. When she ap
peared at the oflice I inquired what they
"Thai, thir," she lisped.
"Sail what? Anything else?"
"Not-th I knowth on, thir!"
"Let's call her Long Sail," whispered
the clerk. So Long Sail was she christ
ened in ink.
The first step taken in Sail's behalf
was to devise some amelioration of her
wardrobe. I contributed a bolt of blue
flannel, and one of our old sailors, dex
terous with the neodlo, took Sail's lati
tude and longitude, fashionod a stylish
?;own and petticoats, trimmed with
iarnsley sheeting, and Sail shono forth
like a full-fledged blue jay. It was de
cided that Sallshould marry Gasper.
THE BRIDE'S TROSSEAU.
But here arose a difficulty. What
was to bo done for a trosseau? Sail's
blue caparison had become greasy and
defaced and, besides, it was scarcely
comme il fuul for a bride. We deter
mined, as we were going to have a wed
ding in the family, that it should be
first-class, if possible. In this desper
ate emergency I remembered that our
navy hacl recently captured a small con
traband trader, and I had seen tho little
vessel lying tinder tho port quarter of
tho flagship. ,1 called upon tiie admiral
and stated our dilemma. , Nobody ever
loved fun better thau Admiral' tfortcr,
nor could anyone sympathize more than
he In such an enterprise as we had un
dertaken. For a reply bo arose, opened
a back door of bis cabin aud went be
low. Presently back he came, with his
arms full of bolts of calico, gingham
and the like. I selected wiiat seemed
most suitable, thauked him and left an
invitation for tho wedding.
Our man mantuamaker again set to
work with a will, ami uuder nis artistic
touch S;ill soon was gorgeous. Wo even
fabricated a set of stays and laced her
up like a tenor drum. Next to be look
ed for was the wedding ring. This was
furnished bv the wifo of an officer of the
Marine Brigade; also some artificial
flowers for tho "bar," and a pair of
white kid gauntlets, which, by dint of
soaking and stretching, were at last
adapted to Sail's taper digits. When
we had her all rigged, Solomon in all
his glory certainly never shone as sho
did. She was fairly aghast at herself,
anu it was pernaps lortunato that we
had no full length mirror in which sho
could have seen herself as others saw
All being ready, time was fixed and
wedding invitations were issued to tho
notabilities of the squadron. The nup
tial knot was to be tied in the Rover s
wardroom at 10 A. M., just after the
Sunday muster. Our fleet surgeon, a
natural orator, than whom no ono could
render the Episcopal text with moreitn
pressiveness ami unction, assumed tho
role of master of ceremonies. Our cap
tain undertook to give away the bride.
As the decisive hour drew nigh tho wed
ding giiebts assembled, arrayed in full
paval uniform. The bridal party came
on deck, escorted by the "contrabands"
in blue jackets and white pants. One
of Gasper's messmates ofliciatnd as
groomsmau, while my clerk endeavored
to do the honors as a sort of he brides
maid. The fleet surgeon began the ser
vice with a dignity and solemnity befit
ting the occasion.
All went well until ho came to, "Who
giveth this woman to be married to this
Then our skipper stepped forth. Ho
was un old salt who always took things
in dead and serious earnest, aud talked
from the bottom of his heart.
"Sail!" said he, "you've heard what
tho minister has lust read! Now, mind,
there's no foolin about this! Gasper is
to stick to you and you're to htick to
Gasper! No more runnin' 'round among
these other darkeys! Gasper is your
uusoana anu you are uasper swile. ana
you're to love and honor and cherish
and obey him! Do you understand
"Yetb, thir," lisped Sail.
"And, Gasper, you're to look out for
Sail and tako care of her und kw) her
to voursof and see that nho don t go
eaflivantinfr about with anyboily i-lso.
Do you unuonttantl?"
"Yes, Bah," gaxiied tho groom.
"Then clvo this woman to ho mar
ried to this man. Go ahead, Hoot
WIIAU'S I)E GOODS?
The doctor maintained his gravity
through this little Interlude, and con
tinued the service. When he camo to
the ring business and "with all my
worldly goods I thee endow," a black
rascal in the rear ranks, ovorcomo by
his feelings, chuckled and snorted out:
"Whar's de goods?"
Then he stuffod his blue cap into his
mouth. His mal apropos slightly rip
pled tho general serenity, but wo sur
vived it and came at last happily to the
benediction. Such was tho union of
Gasper and Long Sail, who can boast
of being spliced under more novel con
ditions than fell to the lot of any other
couple during the war of tho Rebellion.

The seat of honor and pleasure in a
journey overland is by the driver, and
there is always a scramble for it. I got
left in my contest for a seat on top and
found myself recently inside of the
stage, with a clergyman and a man
whom I took for a miner, during a trip
to Silver City, N. M. The preacher and
I sat on tho back seat and the native sat
facing us. Ho was dressed in tho regu
lation costume of the country. Dark
pants stuck in his boots and held up by
a six-shooter buckled around the waist,
blue flannel shirt, flaming red necktie
and a great sombrero. A knife was
stuck in his boot and he carried a Win
chester rifle on tbo seat beside him all
in all, he was about as ugly looking a
specimen of humanity as I nave met.
As the stage rolled along, the miner
looked out of the window as if in deep
thought. The preacher aud I entered
"I have got some very interesting sub
jects I could write about," he said as
tho stage jolted along over the rough
road, "for five years I was a missionary
at Siam and saw many strange ami even
"What wero theso scenes you refer
to?" I asked.
"Well, the punishment of criminals
was exceedingly strange and is worthy
of desoription. . When a person is con
victed of crime there ho is taken out up
on the public square forcxecuiion. His
nock is bared woll down upon his shoul
ders and the executioner dips his linger
in mud and with it makes a mark upon
the neck of the doomed man. '
"What kind of mud?" shouted tho
miner in a voice like a thunder clap,
while ho glared at the parson savagely.
"A sort of yellowish mud," replied
tho preacher, evidently disturbed by tho
miner's look aud manner. Rut ho con
tinued: "The executioner then takes his
heavy sword aud with one quick and de
cisive blow severs the victim's head from
"It's a lie," yelled the miner, in tones
that mightiave been heard four miles.
"The boys do occasionally hang a horse
thief there, and the town has a pretty
bad name, but they never cut people's
heads off. There ain't only one sword
in the whole place and that belongs to
a militia captain and wouldn't cut the
head of a turnip."
"Rut I was a missionary thero for
five years," meekly intcrposod the min
ister. "And I was a barber there for seven
years, and 1 never shaved you, neith
"My friend, that cannot be; for tho
people never shave there."
.'I'I 4 I
-iiiai is auomer one oi your lniernai
lies; they re a.i clean a shaven set of
people as tliar is in the V est. You're a
nice man to be giving the town a bad
namo after you have left it. If it weren t
kind of agin fashion to hit a parson I'd
knock your head off of you fur your
lies," cried the miner, getting madder
"Sly dear friend," said the minister
imploringly and evidently much disturb
ed for his safety, "there certainly must
bo some mistake. You do not mean to
say that you were a barber in the King
dom of Siam, where tho people never

back into his chair disgusted. Cor.
Natural Gas Fuels.
Years ago, in their eagerness to tap
from the earth its hidden treasures of
oil, drillers generally expressed disgust
when nothing but gas rewarded thciref
forts. Later, some enterprising men
began to turn their attention to this
great source of caloric, and, one by one,
a number of irou and glass manufactor
ies in Pennsylvania carried the gas into
their mills. Tho Enginecriwjund Min
ing Journal says they have not made
much bluster over what they were do
ing, ami nave quietlv pocketed tbo in
creased prolits which their saving of fu
el, nun to the use of gas, has given them.
wi late, however, the subject is attract
lng considerable attention in a quiet
way, and recent development indicatt
tjmt the territory which may possibly
be able to draw upon the new source ot
fuel supply is much greater than is gen
erally beliuved. Gas wells have been
opened and are utilized as far west as
Detroit, Hint as far south as West Vir
ginia, aud Pittsburg Is now getting ex
cited over the extension of the business
of the Miirraysvilln well in Westmore
land County.' l'ipes have been laid
down to a number of glass and Iron
works in the eastern part of tho great
Smoky City, and a rapid extension of
the field os tho gaseous fuel Is looked
forward to. The belief Is expressed by
men whose opinion is worthy of much
consideration, that the number of local
ities capable of being supplied with gns'
cous fiiul In tho Slates of Now York,
Pennsylvania. West Virginia, and Mich
igan is much larger than the majority
have any conception of, and tbo per
manency of the flow of some of tho old
er wells gives riso to tho hope that ills a
reliablo fuel supply. Its cheapness and
cleanliness are, of course, matters which
are beyond all doubt. There are Indi
cations that during the present year fl
considerable number of companies will
form to sink wells, and a "boom" is
looked forward to that may bring forth
tho usual crop of unsound enterprises.
CHEAP EXCURSION BATES EVERY DAT DUR
ING THE SUMMER TO SANTA FE, NEW
Santa Fe, New Mexico, is tho oldest city
in the United States. It has reached tho
end of its first third of a thousand years
its tortio-millcoial period. The Tertio-Millennial
Celebration and Mining nd Indus
trial Exposition, which will bo inaugurated
thero on the 3d of July and closo on tho 3d
of August, will be au event of great histo
rical as well as practical importance to tho
country at large. It is intended to com
memorate the three hundred and thirty
third anniversary of tho Spanish settlement
of the place.
Which will constitute the practical part of
the celebration, will be an epitome of tl.o
mineral, agricultural, horticultural, stock
and general industrial resources and capa
bilities of the Territory. Those, therefore,
who sre interested in either inining, agri
culture orstock-raisiug will have a good op
portunity to visit New Mexico this goason,
ss the low tare will bo a great inducement
to make the trip. The development of the
mines of this vast region -has but begun,
yet hi the past year the proportionate in
crease in the output of ore was greater than
in any other State oi Territory. New Mex
ico's showing at the mining exposition held
at Denver last season showed, more cloarlv
than anything else, tho vastnesg of its min
eral wealth. -4
It has been the general belief heretofore
that agriculture in New Mexico would not
pay. This is an unfortunate error. At tho
exposition will be eeen samples of all sorts
of fruits and field products which vie with
those of prolific Kansas. With irrigation
tho soil of the Territory can lie made to
yield immensely, and there is no pursuit
more remunerative than that of firming.
Agricultural products, of all kinds, bring
high prices upon a ready market, always
accessible in the growing mining towns,
and the cost of raising is comparatively
small. As a cattle and sheep country, too,
New Mftcico cannot be surpassed. Her
valleys and means afford fine grazing
grounds for countless herds. As the cele
bration at Santa Fe will bo the means of
drawing a larger number of people into the
Territory than usual, owing to the cheap
fsre, an opportunity will be ottered those
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, 19th, and 20th of July will be
devoted to tiie presentation of historic
scenes, these win represent trie penou
which has transpired since the settlement
of the city, esch day to represent a century
of history aud progress. The three civili
zations will also be represented that
which existed at the time of the coming of
the conqueror-, that which the Spaniards
brought with them and that which followed
the American occupation of 1841. Theso
representations will be illustrated by caval
cades in costume, indicative of the several
distinctive expeditions into Jew 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 witnessed in
this country. There will, in addition, he
various Indian games, races and dances by
the Pueblos, descendants of tho ancient in
habitants of the Territory; ambuscades and
sham fights by tho Zunis, with exhibitions
of their peculiar rites and ceremonies, one
of which will be a primitive danco 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 IndiauH will
take pnrt ; various Mexican sports and the
grand fandango; war and other peculiar
dunces by the . Meecalero and
Jicariila Apaches; exhibitions by Mexican
vacqueros in throwing tho lariat;
mounted tournament, in cos
tunics of three centuries ago;
the San Domingo and Sandia feasts, and
other peculiar and interesting ceremonies
which would take much space and time to
ROUND TRIP $-10.
The rate for the round trip from Kansas
City and Atchison, including stop-off both
whys at the Las Vegas Hot Springs, 1b only
f 10, while the tare from all eastern poin's
is comparatively low. The Las Vegas Hot
Springs arc among the most celebrated in
the world, and a cool and comfortable re
sort for the hot season. Thero is every in
duceinent to go to New Mexico this sum
mer and it will be taken advantage of by
thousands who will improve this opportun
ity to study, under the best possible con
ditions, the resources of tho Territory and
investments, and also to enjoy for tho time
the most quaint and romatic spot in all our
country. It is an opportunity to bco the
Southwest the coming country which
ought not to be lost by any who have any
ambition to avail themselves of the un
equalled advantages there offered for en
