JOURNEYINGS TO THE
- - - - i L -
LAND OF OLD MEXICO
(Spec ial Correspondence to The Argus.)
Guadalajara, Mexico. Dec. 9. The
people of the republic of Mexico are in
deed still in a comparatively primitive
state, but as far as having a perfect
understanding with the weather man
is concerned, they are much in ad
vance of . us who inhabit the great
We have been In Mexico but three
days, and yet we are already charmed
with the noble scenery, picturesque
costumes, and the soft, dreamy atmos
phere that takes one back in fancy to
the days of . Montezuma and Cortez.
Our first stop after entering the land
of the Aztecs was at Zacatecas, the
capital city of the state of the same
name. We remained there 12 hours,
viewing the great mining camps, the
state buildings, and the Alameda. The
following day we spent in Aguas Cali
entes. The latter is one of the pret
tiest cities in all Mexico. It was
founded in 1520 and takes its name from
the famous hot springs located there,
and has many fine buildings and lux
uriant gardens. Our next stop, was
Guanajuato.' Here we saw the mining
camp of Veda Madre, where mining
has been in progress continuously
since the year 155S, and this region
still has one of the richest veins of
silver ore in all Mexico. It is claimed
that eight hundred million dollars have
been taken from this mine. Leaving
this quaint city, abounding as it does
in relics of by-gone days, we sped on
to Irapuato, where we stopped one hour
for strawberries. This latter incident
will not be seasonable reading at home
so I will s-ay no more about it.
We arrived here this morning and
have been spending the day sight see
ing in this one of the richest and most
progressive cities of the silver repub
lic. It is the second city of the coun
try in point of population, having 125,
000 inhabitants. The manufacturing
interests here are important and are
rapidly developing. The pottery made
here has attained a world-wide fame and
is conceded to be the .finest produced
in Mexico. The stranger is much im
pressed with the grandeur of the resi
dences of the wealthier classes. The en
trance to such houses is through a gate
way that is also the carriage-wa right
through the first or ground story of the
house, which leads directly into a
square garden or court containing the
handsomest tropical plants and flower
ing vines, and the whole often embel
lished by beautiful statuary and foun
tains. This city boasts of scores of
those beautiful homes, in fact, we have
seen so many of them today that we
have almost ceased to marvel at their
We had dinner this evening at a na
tive restaurant. In this connection I
can only say that having partaken of a
meal prepared in Spanish style, you
are certainly aware that you have
finished a hot proposition.
-We will soon reach our objective
point, the City of Mexico.

One of the first business cards dis
tributed by the clothing firm of ' Mos-
enfelder & Kohn. when it started in
business 21 years ago, was found the
other clay by J. W. Welch, of Henry
Dart's Sons, among the contents of
an old coat that had hung undisturb
ed for years.
' The card was taken to Mr. Mosen
felder. He hardly recognized it, al
though he was the originator, of the
ideas included in the reading matter,
and he was so pleased to have one of
the cards that he liad photographs
taken". from both sides and cuts made
from them. When the card was put
out the firm was located in the store
