FAMOUS FOR THEIR BEAUTY OF
FORM AND FEATURES.
Their Lot U Seldom a Happy One Making
Cigarettes Visit to the laco Makers A
Tale of Woe KoQnemcnt and Amiabil
ity. Tho meztiza women of that roost inter
esting country aro famed for their beauty
of form and features, abundant silky
block tresses, largo dork qyes and easy,
graceful manners. Generally they ore
M good as they ore pretty; but their lot
is seldom a happy one; perliaps they ore
too numerous to bo justly appreciated.
About one in eight enters the stato of
matrimony, and theso appear to bo tho
least happy. Owing to a great excess of
female population tho consequence of
many revolutions and war with hostilo
Indians a largo number of women de
pend entirely on their own exertions, and
their field of labor is limited. Thoy aro
not employed in stores, such places being
monopolized by whito handed youths
who think coarser toil beneath them.
Thoso individuals of tho sterner sex ex
pect tho gentler, under all circumstances,
to remain at Homo, no matter how pain
ful their position. Orphans must cat tho
bread of dependenco in tho houso of re
lations or friends, and on no account
shock public opinion by trying to earn a
living away from their placo of abode,
nor may they venture to dwell apart
from elders who shall control their every
movement. They inav softer overy thing
excopt actual starvation, yet must sub
mit if thoy would bo respected.
A fow are wonderfully clever at mak
ing most beautiful fruits and flowers of
sugar, but cannot earn a living by it, tho
timo and caro neqdcd in tho manufacturo
entailing so much expenso that only tho
wealthiest give nn .order on very special
occasions. Nothing truer to nature- than
theso vegetables, fruits and flowers of
sugar con bo imagined. A pincapplo, an
car of com, a golden kashow, with its
odd shaped appendage, a spray of snow
white tuberoses nil equally perfect ii
form and color; whilo largo, full blown
roses, crimson, pink, and yellow, appear
as if tho frail leaves will fall from tho
stem if breathed upon. Only tho tasto
convinces us thaj; thoy aro not what they
seem; and tho flavors given to them by
their skillful producers aro as delicious as
tho work is admirablo.
Tho making of cigarettes affords em
ployment to liundreda ot girls, bocauso
men, women and children theio indulge
in tho uso of tobacco. In city, town and
villago pretty ecnorltas sit behind tho
prison liko window gratings deftly wrap
ping up tobacco in small pieces of tho
outer covering of maize, which, when
toasted, imparts a delightful flavor to
tho cigarette. Twenty cents a day is tho
most tiiat ouo pair ot nanus can earn.

Yes, thoy could maLo nil tho laco wo

to buy modicino for their nick mother.
Wo asked them to resumo tho work that
our arrival liad intenuptcd. TIiLi thoy
did, embroidering tho net v. ith a long
flno necdlo and thread drawn from whito
linen cloth. Tho designs, their own imi

white paper that U tacked to tho net. " A

from twenty to thirty-fivo cents a day.
In spite of their cheerless homes, mo
notonous lives, and continued toll, there
is a winsqmo refinement and amiability
about theso maidens that surprises and
charms. They seldom indulgo in gloomy
forebodings, and when things aro at
their worst inako light ot them. Their
dinner may havo consisted of but ouo
tortilla, thoy may not havo n cent in
their possession, or a tallow dip to cbaso

A enso deoided last term of court
hero was perhaps tho first of tho kind
tried in Texas. It was tho claim of a
settler named Swift to buy school land
under a leaso mado by Mrs. Kato Ar
den with tho state. Tho leaso was
good for six years, but tho settler com
ing in and locating on tho land brought
the caso in court. Tho judgo deoided
in favor of the settler, giving tho
opinion that tho Btato had no power tQ
give a leaso binding enough to prevent
tho land being located on ,and pur
chased in good faith by an actual set
tler. The Bonn Raised.
Jefferson. Tex., Deo. 5. Tho Ur
gent and most enthusiastic meeting that
has boon held hero for years took placo
this afternoon, Tho occasion was tho
final roport of tho citizens' nicotine
appointed eomo months ago to got up
tho iron syndicate bonus. Tho com
mittcc reported that thoy had perform
cd all tho duties delegated to them,
and had closed tho contract with tho
syndicate, and that thoy aro to bogin
work with tho next thirty days. Thero
was firing of anvils in tho city to-night
over Jolforson s groat success. Tho
iron syndicate men and the citizona'
comnuttco were seronadod by tho )of-
ferson brass band, and Jefforson pro

Now York's Artificial lllondca.
Somo of tho beauty seen in Broadway
Is shockingly bleached. Thero seemed to
bo a reform well started in tho matter of
artificial blondes, and for nwhllo somo of
tha foolish users of bleaching acids
showed signs of repentance. It is diffi
cult for a fashionable sinner of this sort
to bocom good. It was necessary to
either let tho natural color ot the hair
assert itself at tho roots, and Blowly pro
gress outwardly, thus leaving for a con
siderable timo a sharply defined border
between tho two hues, or clso cut nil tho
hair off closely, and wear a wig until a
now growth was secured. Many repent
ant fraudulent blondes put themselves
right, liowocr, and it was hoped that
tho yellow mania would entirely subside.
But thero is a relapso, at least among the '
women who conspicuously promenade
Broadway. Tho majority of tho offend
ers, howover, aro actresses, and our
genuino women of fashion axonlotting"
their hair havo its own way as to color.
A young woman went down Broadway
Just boforo mo. Her hair was a light
lemon color. It liad palpably been mado
so by bleaching. That would not liavo
aroused special interest.
But I chanced to sco that hor eye
brows and eyelashes, contrary to tho cus
tom of bogus blondes, had been also
blanched to match her lmlr. Usually
thoso bhimto adjuncts of tho faco nro left
natural, for women who Indulgo in hair
bleaching do not seem to mind easy do
fiction. This girl's comploxlon was
liclily rosy, and not at all liko the
freckled pallor that characterize;! u truo
blonde. Boeing that tho bright pink and
whito of her faio was truthful, and that
uho had taken tho unusual pains of light
ening her brows and lashes, I wiu to
anxious nlnmt her tliat I followed her
Into a dlino museum that lias just bctii
opened closo to Broadway. Thero I lost
sight of her myBtcrioubly, bjt her dkap-t
peuranco was explained when, ten mlu
tites later, I euw her tako her placo on
tho platform with tho human curiosities.
She was bulletined na a Circassian girl,
and tho lecturer told how sho hud been
In ought from CircoBsia. Tho fact i as
that, hlnco coming in from tho street, sho
had merely rcmotcd her hat, cloak and
long skirt), let down her fluffy hair, and
theio sho was a typical Circassian girl,
or Albino, of tho familiar bliow. 'that
Is what wo como to in tho excess of
