HOW THE WOMEN OF MEXICO MIX
RELIGION AND PLEASURE.
A Strange Medley of Recreation and !

Joy Tlimlvta T4zethr.
The last strains of a dying hymn, chanted
In a sort of jerky monotone, hod scarcely
ceased vibrating among tho ponderous, rough
hewn, web covered beams of the little adobe
church at Grunt's, N. M., writes a correspond
ent, when the congregation, principally
women, true to a habitual failing, began an
animated conversation. Whether their com
menu relate! to any part icularly impressive
point of the past service, or were devoted to
conning over interwting hits of domeetio
alfalra, is not known, but (t surprinea the
ftranger, while waiting a few moments at the
entrance of the church watching the people,
to receive a pressing invitation to attend a
"boile" or Mexican dnnce.
A hnlle U, of course, a most harmless rec
reation, but to fly to the opposite extreme,
with the llht.s of the church yet burning
and the priests still shrouded in sacramental
rol, imprussed one as being just a trifle sac
ril'tgioun. a vrnv sivpi.k ballroom.
Women so lately sitting with uncovered
DtvuU in silent devotion now tripped tightly
through the pluomy gtreets, moving in and
out between the darkened structures, chat
ting and laughing each with the other, appar
ently in the very tmnporta of merriment,
all seomed Incongruous.
Reaching a long, low roofed building,
where a small, dingy window emitted a flick
ering, uncertain light, and shrill strains of
music floated out into the night through an
open door, the casiml visitor allowed himself
to be hustled rather unceremoniously Into the
very midst of a Mexican dance.
The dancing apartment consisted of one
long, narrow hall, along either side of which,
for the accommodation of ladies, several
rough wooilen benches were strung out, each
set closely against the wall. Upon these sat
women of all ages, in all imaginable toilets,
with bands crossed demurely in front of
them, but intent upon watching the move
ments of those upon the Uoor.
A number of tallow candles stock into wide,
wooden crosses and suspended at various
places from the coiling imparted a dim and
almost religious light, that cast a weird, pecu
liar glow upon tlio dusky occupants of the
room. Upon the wall, which had received a
fresh adornment of whitewash for the occa
sion, arranged in an odd, fantastic fashion,
were groups of van lined muslins and calicoes
made jip with complicated loops, bows and
circles, and neatly pinned together by means
of green cedar boughs. Those simple green
leaves and bright colorvd muslins combined
in making a noticeably pleasing effect, and
greatly relieved the dull, dead white of the
To assist the passage of sound two soulful
musicians were accorded a scat high aliove
the crowd on a mammoth dry goods box,
where they played on a violin and guitar.
However, the dancers were favored with ad
ditional sounds, very hollow, however, that
issued from the depths of tho resonant dry
goods box, and occasioned by four well souled
boots keeping up a continual tattoo.
In the event of such enjoyable occasions the
Mexican people (of New Mexico) observe very
little or no social distinction, consequently all
classes of ieople in all phases of life mingle
together in the liall room. The haughtiest
don, surpassing himsulf in a sweeping suit of
broadcloth, goes around in n tnozy whirl hand

Women of all ages and girls not yet in their
teens eagrr'y await a request to be led out
upon tho Iioor, yet upon the face of those
neglected, and who wait unasked for hours
upon the hard wooden Umclies, I have never
noticed an erpression that would denote
The old crone of 50 accepts an invitation as
promptly as tho blushing young damsel of 10.
She perhaps docs not feci the same thrill of
pleasure as her younger sister, but she cer
tainly brihtcni up on "dance nights" and
goes through the regulation moves to the best
of her ability, which, considering her ad
vanced years, is very considerable. The prin
cipal charm, if any there be in Mexican
dances, is their simplicity. Each dancer,
from reason of iuig tuught from early child
hood, has nil the required steps down to a
science, which obviates tho necessity of any
"calling off" or "prompt uig."
THE REFRESHMENT ROOM.
Such simplicity, however, does not prevail
throughout the entire performance, as other
very undesirable and highly congruous feat
ures strike one as being extremely vulgar, if
not wholly barbarous. For instance., a male
gallant during intervals between sets amused
himself, If no one else, by stalking up and
down the Boor, leering his Ixxly to and fro
with an air of bravado, and by pounding his
feet vigorously upon the boards made a harsh,
discordant noise with the dusking of two
monster spurs, one of which he wore buckled
to either loot.
Another young man, tall find exceptionally
fierce looking, swung a pretty young girl
through the delights of a waltz, while the
polished end of a huge six shooter at each
turn gleamed bright and formidable from
beneath his coat.
At the completion of each set, the gentle
man conducts the lady to an adjoining room,
where refreshments are served. The refresh
ment stand, over which un elderly woman in
a white apron presided, is worthy of note.
The upper surface of the stand, upon which
the delicacies were served, measured about
four feet square. Directly in the center stood
a dozen or more largo black bottles, some full,
others partially filled with liquor. Around
the bottles aiTanged hi a circle were a num
ber of saucers.
The men for tlio most port took liquor, but
the women regaled themselves each time with
the contents of a single saucer, and the price
for the combination of liquors, fruit and con
fections amounted to the modest sum of 25
cents. As the hours waned the more careful
parents took their children ha.e. Others
left in small numliers; the candles one by one
fluttered out gradually, darkening the room,
and finally the revelers were followed Into
the darkness by tho two very much fatigued
musicians. Kew York Star.
In view of the ever expanding enterprise of

It is bringing in an industrial and ecouomio
revolution of no small proportions, viz. : The

what constitutes a perfect fuel The com

and economy of natural gas will be slow to
return to the liar bur ism of raw coal, and heat

The Original Version no Double
" L.aar-ate r the Kallroads.
It is the oice of the press that General
Manager E. P. St. John, of the "Great
Rock Island Route," is the best of oar
railroad poets. Fields, of the Chicago
Daily New, says: "lie has the exuber
ance of a Eustice, the delicate fancy of a
Townsend, the sublimity of a Ruggles,
the lively sentimentality of a Hooper, the
subtle humor of a Chariton, and the pie
ty of a Chandlar in short, he seems to
combine all those qualities which have
distinguished the other railroad poets in
their respective schools." This eminent
literateur's latest work is a didactic
poem, which is issued in the form of a
calendar for 1889. This calendar reeks
with valuable information and with sage
advice; it tells you all about the days of
the week, the weeks of the month, and
the months of the year; from it you can
learn all about the best and cheapest way
to reach those nenr or distant points
touched by the Rock Island route; more
over, you are put by the modest compen
dium of beautiful and useful thoughts
into possession of a goodly number of
rythmical maxims, apothegms, and bon
iots, of which the following will serve
as a sample:
" 'The king Is dead.
From Ioiik live the kins.'
From moments fled
New nioineits spring."
"Of months sthe first
Of aprinic (now here),
March is the worm
In all the year.
We face with dread
The storms ot sleet,
Vnrtine through mud
That freezes feel."
"Bresthe tonic sir.
Grow ptrong snd fslr,
Kxthsiigir k wealth
'or blessed health."
(The nation's wealth)
When crops are good."
But the enjoyable parts of this work
are those outbursts of song which the
poet St. John indulges in praise of the
great trunk line of which he is the mana
ger. This, for example:
" Wtse men aeree: 'How pleasant 'tis to roam,
Where travelers can always feel "at home"
In car whose rich appurtenances unit
Like those upon the great Rock Island route.'
" Malignant March all vainly tries to mar
The warmth diffused in a sleam-heated car
The warmth aud comfort which mute will, dis
Who travels on the great Rock Island Route."
What sentiment could be more cordial
than the following:
" To one snd all we wish in modest rhyme
(The hestwe have) a hndnv. iovoiia time :
Be mindful then of friends", both man and brnte.
aiiu ne it iorj;ei me great kock Inland route.'
So the verdict is that there are no flics
on the route St. John poetizes.
"Standing advertisements in a paper
command continence. mrnum.
"Success depends upon the liberal put
ronitee of printing offices." Astor.
"Frequent and constant advertising
brought me all I own. A. T. Stewart.
"My son, dcsl only with men who ud

Trade is the keenest, thins 'n the world,
and it is so because it has to measure
with the people. You must have brains
and morals to make a good business as
well as to make a good character. I
spend f 5,000 a week in advertising, and
pay a skillful man a newspaper editor,
and a good one $ 1,000 a month to do it
for me. I make money by it. Adver
tising is the leverage with which this
store has been raised up I do not see
how any large and successful retail busi
ness can he done without liberal adver
tising. I advertise in every issue, except
Sunday, of every daily paper in PniU

continuous work, is the most effective.
