picturesquely on the floor.

While Felix Fontaine tookno sort of
notice of her but kept on aigplaying
the old banner lindhangings'of'eastern
handicraft jjvhic.h.ho had justfhought at
the great sale iriXondon.v
The odd little Greek lamps , -with their
hanging silver chains , were'lighted , the
red curtainp were drawn across the sky
light , and fthe , . fire glowed like a dull
ruby in the 'deep tile-lined fireplace ,
while the stands' and easelsXeach dis
played their treasure of foreign works.
"There ! 1J siid : Felix , to his , uncle ,
with an air of , scarcely repressed tri
umph , "that is'something nuite.unique.
I don't suppose1 it could be.duplicated
here or anywhere else ! " -
Uncle Gaston put up hisvdoublo eye
glasses , and stared ecstatically at the
limp , crinkfeyoldpieceof eastern fabric ,
embroidered in dirty silks , with tar
nished gol'd ! threads glimmering here
and there. " I
"Beautifulhe ! cried. "Exquisite ! "
"I think It's "
dreadfully ugly 1" paren-
thieally interposed Letty , her golden
head peering under Uncle Gaston's arm.
"I could embroider better than that ,
I'm quite sure. "
Felix turned around with an air of
mild tolerance , ' "My dear little girl , "
said ho , "what nonsense you arc talk
ing. Really , one would think you were
six , instead of sixteen. "
I was seventeen last week , " said
Letty indignantly. Mnd if you don't
believe I know auyth f about art , you
may comHind ( see nlfftidio. "
"Your stxidio ? " echoed Felix.
"What is the child talking of ? " said
uncle Gaston.
"She means the place where she
keeps her dolls and picture books , " said
Felix indulgently.
"No I on't , eitheiAJ' cried Letty ,
turning1 scarlet at thi fesh indignitj- .
"I mean my studio , where I paint and
sketch , and do art needlework. "
"Very well , " said Felix. "We'll take
a look at } "our prettyjthings some day. "
"I don't doubt they are very nice , "
added uncle Gaston , with a patronizing
kindness that was gall and wormwood
to poor Letty.
She flung the blue asters and colored
leaves indignantly on the floor and hur
ried from the room with blazing cheeks.
"I won't bu treated like a child ! " cried
Letty , angrily addressing a * simpering
family portrait , whose big eyes seemed
to wntcli Her in the dancing flames of
the dining-room fire. * ! ; who'am seven
teen years old ! " And she. cried softly
on the hearthragjUiitil thelfirst'hqt fever
had burned out of her cheeks While
uncle Gastmijlurning wistfully to Felix ,
said t
* *
"She grows very pretty , * < Felix. } Don't
you think so ? "
"Very ! " Felix answere3f.in an ab
stracted way , as he pulled" out the
wrinkled corner of a piecer.of * painted
crape. \ * % T
"She'll hiake a splendid woman one
of these " added the %
days , oldgentle-
"Oh , no doubt ! " saidFelix " , stepping
back a pace or two , to "study the gen

"And il\vould be such avreu"ef to me

marry her.-
Felix tamed short'ound. . "My
dear uncle , are you"crazy4 | he de
manded. * "Me marry Letty'Gore ? Do
I look like a marrying-man ? Is she
the sort of person 1 should.be likely to
fancy , even if the niidsumnieramadness
took possession of me ? " * ' .
The door which led -into th'e dark
passage co'mmunicating with the dining-
room was1 partially open. and ; Lettj
Gore , still crouching under the big-
eyed aneet-trcfs' portrait -had , heard
every worjl. She sat there some time
longer , and then got'-up and wenl
quietly up stairs to ner "room. Uncl (
Gaston was disappointed too. It hac
always been his pet idea to make up :
match between Lettice , his niece , ant
Felix , his nephew , these : two adoptee
children who were yet no relation a
all to each other , and now it has provei
a failure. v
Well , Uncle Gaston was used , to dis
appointments. It was lucky thathehai
not mentioned it to Letty. But afte
this Letty seemed different. The child
ish abandon was gone out of her mar
ner. She was graceful , cordial , oui
spoken all that a lady should be , bi
was no longer a child.
Felix looked at his cousin with occi
sional outbursts of wonder. What
Erincess the little thing is growing t
e. They had company to dinner or
day a pott , a learned professor , t\v
or three savants and.lelix. was su :
prised at the graceful"and self posse
sion , the general readiness of inform :
tion which Letty displayed. "Whei
has she picked up all this ? " he askt
himself. And then a few weeks afte
ward a 'gust of blind , , ungovernab
jealousy came over him , when Colon
Marquand ] , then : nearest neighbo
asked Letty's hand in marriage.
"What business has he aTman of fc
ty , to aspire to a sweet human rosebi
like oar Letty ? " he demanded-hotty.
"Gently , my lad gently , " .said u
cle Gaston. "There is JIG occasion
be vexed the girl has refused him , ai
Marquand is a fine gentleman , who
love would be an honor to any woi
an. " v
"It's strange she never spoke of it

Felix looked a little disappointed ai
her lack of interest.
"I had it from Kenneth llouiayne , '
said ho. "I gave him my Sevres vas (

"If you care fb lobB'afc' it , " said the
girl , indifferently. *
He followed her ' upstairs , feeling
vaguely as if lie wcro'about to gain en

And it was enchantedlhUeed ! "Letty , " ,
he exclaimed , looking"about him , "arc

She spoke with a little , hard laugh ,
( but at the same time 'there was a quiver

"Letty , you are a'genius ! " fervently
cried Felix.
-"There other .things in this" world

she sadly.

How it was "Tic never exactly knew ,
but all of an instant she was sobbing on
his shoulder , and it was all settled.
Old Uncle Gaston was delighted. It
had always , as we know , been the dar
ling wish of his heart that they two
should be united.
"And my little rosebud has blossomed
into such a perfect rose at last ! " he
said , rubbing his hands.
While in the very front rank of his
collections Mr. Felix Fontaine keeps
that maroon satin scroll , where the
gold thread clouds throw their silver
tides into such strong relief. But no
one shares the secret with himself ,
Letty his wife , and Miss Cecelia Ro-
mayne. "For Kenneth would never
forgive me if he knew , " said the latter.
The W | ging of Mxmtezuma.
Bcn'n Fo ( N. M. ) i orrespondcncc of Kansas City
The Indityn dance is not merely a
pleasant yastiuie for the light-hearted
and frivolous to engage in. It is a reli
gious rite a prose poem. It perpet
uates the history as well as religion of
the Indian. It is a drama , a lyrical
representation of important events in
the history of a rude and uncultivated
people that have no better means of
perpetuating their deeds than through
traditionary recitals and common folk
Zuni Gushing tells me the cochita
dance has 125 different representations.
The movement is grand , ancl it requires
days of preparation. Not 50 perhaps
not a dozen white men have ever seen
it danced. The Indians will not repeat
it except at stated intervals- the rea
son that it is a part , and the most com
memorative part , of important religious
ceremonies. Gushing himself , though
he is a war chief , and recently admitted
to the sacred order of the Bow , could
not induce the Zunis to repeat this dance
in publicjat the Tertio-Millennial anni
versary. v. Through the officers of the
association he offered the , Indians 100
silver dollars if they would dance the
cocfiita , but they persistently refused.
There are many dances common , to all
the .tribes , but most _ tribes have dances
peculiar ' to themselves , and some are
more valuable in the perpetuation "of
thejhistory , the religipn , the. ceremon
ies , the daily life of the people than all
other agencies combined. So much for
the Indian dance in general.
Here I have witnessed a new revela
tion in the history of this strange pee
ple. , I have seen dances different from
any thattl have seen during the last 2o
veal's. 3"he one that impresses .me
quifcTas much as any other is the Woo"-
ing otf Mbntezuma. The characters are
Quellacotle , Monarka , Montezumaj his
lovely bride , Malinche , ( erroneously
and 'far less poetically printed on the
bilsKaegna ! ; ) the court jester , Tongno ;
Taurus ( the bull ) , courtiers , attendants
and Officers. Montezuma , as every in
telligent reader knows , is the savior ,
the Socrates , the Confucius of tlje Mex
icans. His birth runs back into the
mystic records of myth and tradition
the great Montezuma , I meanBui
Montezuma , like all good men anc
creat gods , loved more fortunately thai
inany others he loved both wisely anc
well. He wooed and won , and experi
enced quite as many difficulties in thi
job as the rest of us. 'T\vas ever thus
women "coy and hard to please. '
So found the monarch love
in his persistent and delicat
wooing of the reluctant but level ;
Malinche. The drama dance commem
orates and represents the valor , pa
tience and sublime heroism of the grea
lover ; the .attempts of the ugly an
clowning Taurus to captivate the fai
maiden ; the struggles the courtien
each for himself , with wooing : and wir
some manners to captivate the charir
ing and beautiful Indian girl. In
trial of most experts and most skillft
dancing Montezuma vanquishes all 'hi
courtiers. The blushing and beautift
"Malinche yields , and Montezuma :
prouder , happier than when he ha
conquered all surrounding tribes an
founded the great city of Mexico , wit
with its magnificent gardens , its woi
derful plazas , its great market-placi
its royal buildings , its fountain's au
aqueducts , its splendid roads , and a
I j these lonely years before the arrival <
! the blood-thirsty and gold-crazed Spai
- iard , and befpre the hen had laid tl

1 presence of the princes. It is ,
3 course , a national dance , and dates
- history Iback into the misty traditio
of mythical history. The Aztec , goc
o it is said , revealed it to the Pueblo I
r dians. "
e 'It took just one hour and a half 1
a my watch to render the dance poem.
e -skillfully , majestically , beautiful
rendered. The dancers were both Me
n leans and Pueblo Indians. The numb
U performing was 12 , not including t
a fair Lupeta Arohuletta , representing t
lovely bride-and the manly Franciscc
Gomez , personating the monarch lover
the great Montezuraa. * The mother o :
the bride is a Pueblo and , the father i
Mexican. "OurAwaiting- anxioui
beaus not infrogneiiily think their fail
dulcineos are a long time preparing
their toilets for extra occasions , bul
dishing tells mo the Zuni are fully eighl
days preparing for the cochita dance
You ace their time is not much more
valuable than that of our average fash
ionable young lady. Then' , too , thej
are very elaborately dressed , paradox
ically as it may Beemfvhen not dressed
at all. One can be much dressed with
very light dress , as the Zuni and the
fashionable lady at the ball ) each illus
trate. The Zuni may be naked to the
waist and neb even wear Cinderella
slippers , and yet days may be spent in
ornamenting , decorating and painting
the body and -face.- - The wooing of
Montezuma is danced by 12 chiefs. On
the occasion referred to they emphatic
ally mingled and blended the ancient
and modern civilization in dress as well
as in the general features of the dance.
Some enterprising clothing merchant
had presented them with a cheap "pair
of pantaloons and a vest each. With
these still retaining the salesman's card-
mark for ornament , a calico shirt , a
Jtfavajo or Zuni blanket , a , silk ! veil
worn as as a mask , and brand new cow
hide shoes richly ornamentca andjiigh-
ly decorated , the dancers wore arrayed.
They had their attendants tto arrange
their endless amount of gibbons in
bright colors , pendant from thc -head
ana shoulders. The faces were highly
painted , though masked.
The monarch lover , Montezuma , Yas ,
of course , more gorgeously arrayed.
His crown was particularly- noticeable
and gaudy. Each dancer carried a "red
silk handkerchief , more conspicuous
than Senacor Thurman's , iireacn hand ,
the one in the right haying a few stones
tied up in it | which , withjjpnstant , reg
ular ancl monotonous movement , kepfc
rattling time with the -music. They
startedlfrom the annexJiterally danc
ing lime to , the music that followed ,
consisting of the . -violin and guitar
playedJby Mexicans , outllo the arena.
Here the dance was given. ; Hundreds
of people crowded around 'the low-
fence that .enclosed the arena. Other
hundreds" looked on from the roofs of
the-state house and adjoining-buildings.
The arena was spacioustana gave full
advantage to the dancers to do their
best. The witches and-ghosts in the
oldfchurchyard danced with no morje
zeal and'fury for Tarn O'Shanter than
didjjthe Zum-ior their -largo audience ,
Dancing around the may-pole 'concludes
the I , ceremony. Each of the twelve"
chiefs -holds one of the long ribbons
attached to the pole and they dance
around the pole until the ribbons are
thoroughly twisted. Then the dancing
is reversed and the ribbons untwisted.
When this was done they asked the
crowd , through the interpreter , if the
pole was well twisted and the work was
well done and we all clapped our hands
and t'.e ' Zuni's cup of glory was full and
running over. I forgot to mention that
the lovely bride of Montezuma , Lupeta
Archuletia , the fair Mallwehe , was
dressed in a beautiful white dress , lat
est style and very expensive. Her
head was highly ornamented. She
wore a pair of new shoes of reasonably
oed material. With so much civiliza
tion fixings old Montezuina would
hardly have recognized his bride. She
carried the two brilliant silk handker
chiefs in the same way as the men.
Artificial Eggs.
Now YdrffiSun.
I followed my conductor to one end
of the apartment , where there were
throe large tanks or. vatSv One was.
filled with a yellow compound the second
end with a starchy mixture and the oth
er wasovered. Pointing to these the
proprieror said : "These contain the
yolk mixture and the white of egg. We
can empty vats every day , so you can
judge of the extent of the business al
ready. Let me show you one of tne
machines. You see they are divided
into different boxes or receptacles. The
first and second are the yolk and white.
The next is what we term the "skin"
raachinerand thelast ] one is the shell-
cr , with arying trays. This process is
the result of many years of experiment
and expense. I first conceived the idea
after making a chemical analysis of an
egg. I jthen turned my attention to
maKing the machinery , and the re
sult you see for yourself. Of course it
would not be policy for me to explain
all the mechanism , but I'll give you an
idea of the process. Into the first ma
chine is put the yolk mixture "
"Well , it's a mixture of Indian meal ,
corn starch , and several other ingre
dients. It is poured into the opening
in a thick , mushy state , and is formed
by the machine into a ball and frozen.
In this condition it passes into the other
box , where it surrounded by the white ,
which is chemically the -same as the
realj egg. This is also frozen , and by
a peculiar rotary motion of the machine
an oval shape is imparted to it , and it
passes into the next receptacle , where it
receives the thin fllnry skin. After this
it'has only to go into the sheller , where
it gets its last coat in the shape of a
plaster of paris shell , a trifle thicker
than the genuine article. Then it goes
out on the drying trays , where the shell
dries at once and the inside thaws out
. It becomes to all
gradually. , * appearances -
ances , a real egg. " I
"How many eggs can you turn out in
a day ? " ' *
"Well , as we are running now , we
turn out a thousand'or so every hour. "
"Many orders ? "
"Why , bless your soulyes. We.can-
not fill one-half of. our orders. "
"Can they be boiled ? "
"OK , yes ; " and he called one of the
men. "Here , Jim , boii this gentlemar
an egg. "
"Can they be detected ? " I inquired
while the bogus egg was being boiled.
"I hardly think , that anybody woulc
be likely to observe any difference un
less he happened to be well posted , a :
they look and taste like the real thing
We can , by a little flavoring , maki
'them taste like goose or duck eggs , o
course altering the size. They wil
keep for years. That one you hav
eaten was nearly a year old. The ;
never spoil nor become rotten , and , be
ing harder and thicker in their shells
they will stand shipping better than rea
eggs. Oh , it's a big thing , and caps
ble , I suppose , ot being brought to stii
greater perfection. One of my en
ployes here insists that if I go to wor
at it I can invent a machine which wi
run the eggs into an incubator an
hatch out spring chickens. "

Is there any reason to suppose tha
all the ancient manuscripts of famoui
classical books have been discovered !
Of course every one must hope tha
there are discoveries still to bo made
The lost books of Livy wo confess tin
world can suffer to bp lost. A verj
great deal of Livy still survives , quiU
enough for all purposes. Monander it
a far more cruel loss , for not only was
Menandor by general consent the great
est poet ol comedy , as we considoi
comedy , cut in him would probably be
found the earliest literary form of plots
which have been used by Plautus ,
Terence , Jiloliero , and their followers.
If it b'e true that . "all the stories have
been told" they must have been told
very longf ngp , for wo can scarcely go
so far back in Egyptian or Chinese
literature but we Imd the old stories ,
obviously with a great pastbehind them
even then. There is is a story of a
learned contemporary who heard that
an excessively old manuscript , part of
the New Testament , had been discover
ed. Now , next to finding the manu
script of some work wholly lost there is
nothing more exciting than the discov
ery of an older manuscript of a familiar
w.ork than any we possess. The whole
world wqu'ld be moved if in tlfe Vatican
or the Sultan's palace or in a convent
of SinaL' , or the Levant , a con-
einporary copy of some gospel ,
or of one of St. Paul's lost
epistles , should be unearthed.
3ut the learned.scholar became a little
bored with talk about the New Testa
ment codek. "If it had only been
sometliing important now , " he said , "if
thad been Propertius , for instance ! "
Most-of us pro Philistine enough to be
more interested in the early history of
our own- and the Jewish sacred books
than in "the minor Latin poets. And
icople who" learn with disappointment
; hat the recent discovery of the ark is
not free from suspicion may congratu-
ate themselves that Mr. Shapiro , has
discovered a new ( that is , an exces
sively old ) codex of the Book of Deu-
eronomy. A number of learned Orien
talists have examined the precious frag
ments , though apparently they have
arrived at nov.very definite conclusion ,
things froni Moab do not always turn
out as well as could be wished. The
VIoabite stone is generally respected ,
> ut the Moabite pottery appears to have
) een made Jn Staffordshire. Some
'ears ago a scholar , an Oriental scholar
it Oxford , "was known as "The Bad
Samaritan.'I A Samaritan manuscript
of much interest had been brought to
lis notice , and he was ( according to
ogend ) quitepleased with this ancient
reasure. But the manuscript turned
out to'be a work of the nineteenth cen
tury A. D. Therefore we must not
accept all Oriental manuscripts as gen
uine without thorough examination.
The treasure now in London consists
of various small and dirty scraps of
> archnient or of leather. On some of
hem Phoenician letters are visible to
; he naked eye. Other scraps reveal
Phoenician letters after being washed
over with spirits of wine. The writing
s said to be as old as the Moabite stone ,
vhich is dated 900 years before Christ.
Of course a manuscript of Deuteronomy
vritten 900 years before Christ would
silence the highest , criticism when she
assigns to Deuteronomy a very much
ater date. Apart from this critical in-
: erest the manuscript would be proba
bly the oldest , not Egyptian , which we
) ossess on any soft material. Herodo-
us says that in ancient times the lon-
an vrote on skins , but none of the
skiST have descended to us , which is
'ortunate for the theories of Mr. Paley.
Sknis of course are very perishable ob-
eW5nrtur-so'ont oftHc dryclimttte of
Sgypt ) arc manuscripts written on
japyrus. We have Egyptian papyri of
ixtejrae antiquity , but the oldest alpha-
) ebc Semitic writings hitherto known'
are inscriptions on stones and rocks ,
and occasionally on silver bowls and
other hard materials. Tha hew codex
of Deuteronomy therefore would be
> ractioally unique. It would establish
lie fact that the Jews could write a
consecutive narrative on soft and port
able material 2,700 years ago , about the
date commonly assigned to Homer and
lesoid. And if the Jews could do it ,
.he Greeks , a clever people , would not
) e long behind them. The story of the
recovery of this relic is peculiarly ro
mantic. Five years ago Mr. Shapira ,
of Jerusalem , heard that the Arabs of
Diban , in Moab , possessed some an
cient tribal talisman. Mr. Shapira
> erceived that , if really ancient , these
ialismans might have interest and
value. They might , of course , be mere
relics of saints ; on the other hand ,
; hey might be chips of the broken stone
"table of the law " They did turn out
; o be something almost as remarkable.
Mir. Shapira , according to statement
which we have already published , en
isled in the cause of Biblical archaeol
ogy some Arabs , "people who would
steal their own mother-in-law for a few
piasters. " The Oriental races , when
once embarked in a career of crime ,
stick at nothing. To steal one's own
mother-in-law is a furtive act at which
the stoutest western fancy" stands
aghast , nor is it easy to imagine the
state of mind of the capitalist who
would suborn men to commit sfach a
theft. By the aid of these Arabs the
talisman was carried off , and proved to
be no talisman , but the Book of Deu
teronomy. ' The "various readings" of
this singular text are almost startling ,
