THE CHILIAN SENORITA, She Is Wondrous Fascinating and Charming to the Eye of Man. Her Most Potent and Dangerous Feature Is Her Eyes So Lustrous. Demure Maid at Mass, an Inveterate Co quette on the Promenade-How They Are Wooed. Something must be wrong with the man who would not promptly lay down his life for a Chilian senorita, says the New York Sun. Either the blood of common human ity does not flow in his veins, or he is not fitted for comprehension of one of the most marvelous types of feminine perfection. The whole western world may be searched ,from Grinnell's Land to Cape Horn, but nowhere can be found more fascinating and more beautiful women than in that picturesque and remote slip of fertile land crowded between the Andes and the blue waters of the southern Pacific. The Chil ian flowers, as they are styled in their own language, are generally of Andalusian, C.s tilian and Valencian types. The principal features of their appearance are oval faces, olive complexions, dark and abundant hair, dark, large and lustrous eyes, full chins, rather undersized but full figures, small and shapely hands and feet, and Castil ian insteps, under which water could flow. The Chilian woman's most potent and dangerous feature is her eyes. In publie the women look out at one with slow and languid glances, sometime wickedly, some times innocently and wonderingly, as New Yorkers may have seen fawns in Central park look at quiet spectators. But under the cover of the home their eyes and light and glow and melt. They are at times the window of a nature of deep spiritual tenderness: at other times they gleam with coquetry. At morning mass the senorita has the self-forgotten gaze of a cloistered nun; at the afternoon promenade she shoots errant glances with the audacity of a grisette. The characteristic dress of the las flores Chilenas is black and plain. Of course it has tucks and pleats and gores in the skirt, and occasionally lace and embroidery. From the head falls the world-famed man tilla, a light wrap, generally of China silk, often costing hundreds of dollars. An edge is drawn over the head, and the rest of the garment falls to the shoulderg and thence continues, sometimes to the waist, sometimes to the hips, and sometimes to the feet. The right co nor is then drawn across the breast anmd over the left shoul tier, like the ancient Roman toga, ,nd be hind is fastened with a black brooch of jet. The outlines of the head and the shouilrlr are thmu shown, though artitiscally draped while a corner of the mantilla projects over the forehead and hrnrdes the eyes. There are no women oai the wratern heruis phere better dressed than the senaortae, of the uplpr classes in Valparaiso anid Sani tisgo, for they follow the latest Parisian fashions, and import all their clothing down to their open-work silk stockings. On wakiun, a senoritn snaulrons her house-maid to bring bur a little food, which she enjoys in the sanctity of her lbed. Then, having donned skirt and miantilla, she re pairs with lier portly but sharp-eyed duenna to mass, accompanied by a female servant, who carries her prayer book and prayer book rug. The rug is an article of neces sity, for the senorita kneels for many min utes at a time on a cold stone floor, which is no respecter of knees. On leaving the church she passes by an irregular line of gallantP, who make admiring remarks in stage "asides." She plsses by with her eyes fastened on the gold cross of her prayer book. Mess over the young woman gossips with her dearest feminine foes and then san ,wiches in a little shopping before breakfast, which in Chili is eaten at noon. When~she shops she does not enter the store, but remains in her carriage while the goods are brought out and displayed on the sidewalk, After breakfast the belle retires to her boudoir for a siesta and a little smoke. Then she dresses for the afternoon prom enade. This recreation is taken on the avenue or in the plaza, according to the season. In the winter the prorenade is along the finest street of the city. ,In sum mer she promenades the plaza to the music of a regimental band. In winter or sum mer she is always under the lee of her buxom duenna. Any approved young man may join her and make himself agreeable. Should be succeed in the latter he may be rewarded with an invitation to dinner, which is eaten at six or seven o'clock. In the evening the senorita frequently attends the opera, In which case the party is a family one, and the dueanna is militant, Courtship is carried on in the presence of the duenna, and sometimes of a fourth, a Ifth, and even of a sixth person. When a young man makes a call hbe sends his card o the head of the family, who invites him to take a glass of his choicest wine and inaily calls in senorita. When finally a proposal has been made and accepted, with he aporoval of senorita's papa, the papas fa the two young people get together and an agreement is reached concerning dowry and settlements. As might be imagined of a country of fe male beauty, ditliculties for the sake of women are frequent. Some months ago a senorita residing on the avenue of ban tiago was the cause of trouble. bhe had numerous admirers, two of whom were from time to time especially encouraged. One evening as she was promenading the avenue she passed these two together. In passing she dropped a tiny folded note and both sprang to claim it. Their heads came together, both lost their balance, and both pitched headlong in the mud. One lover struck his rival a heavy blow on the temple. Action was so rapid that neithsr combatant had an op portunity to loturn to the dryer roil of the avenue. IThe spectacle of two of the elite of the city of iantiago brawling in a put ter rendered the spectators immovable with astonishment for twenty or thirty seconds, befo-e acquaintances parted the rivals. On the same evoninr each admirer found his best friend and insisted on a challenge. Duals are scarce if not unknown in Chili, but that fact had no weight at the mu. mont, uand the challenges were sent. A oostponemnent of the duel was offected, however, and eventually the matter was patched up. Th'rllis affir ave the scene of the fiht in the gutter the name of punta del duelo. Beauty suffers in Chili as well as else where. I'ene is a Chilian custom of em ploving womenrn hs orse-car condauto:s, and these conductors, owing to the possea sion of charms similar to those of their higher born couutiywomeen, are subject to nanny annoyanuceC. (Ifllit a man will wait for a particular car rand will patronize it from noon to dewy eve, ridingr, th!e the eu tire length of the line mrniy tla ., and pay ing a dozen or fifteen fires. In Concep cion, a wealthy widower of i;5 became in futueted with a trri conductor of 20. One afternoon Don lRoberto diucerned that he was making no headway, and he bluntly asked: "Why is it that you show rime no more considuration ?" "You are too old, senor." "I feel as younL ias ever.'' Just at that iomerrnt the car was passing El Club de Concepciou, whios rouors were packed with tile younrgs bloo l:u of the city. 'The conduo or requested Don Hl(oulto to give all exhibition of the javerllllty iel claimed. 11er evident sceptioium piqgned the old man, who, with it bluff of nonobhr lance, stepped from the car. lie clipped. fell and rolled into the gutter directly be - fore the club windows, thereby earning for himself the name of Don Roberto L'Acro bato. Th'e little conductor rang up her fares in peace thereafter. Every woman in Chili who is known as a beauty, however, is not beautiful. There are, for instance, the native Indian women, las Araucanas. Their height is about five feet five or six inches. Their weight is also above the average. Their heands are large, and their figures stout and muscular. They have broad shoulders and deep chests and sturdy, active limbs. 'lheir well-propor tioned arms give evidence of open-air life and strength gained by exercise. Their whole bearing gives an impression of perfect self-possession and fearless courage. The face is plain, large-featured and open. Fashion has its votaries even among the Araucanian women. The article of jewelry most affected in early life is the virgin colt lar. It is a heavy leather belt, two inches wide, and studded with parallel rows of hammered silver heads. Its length is from fourteen to sixteen inches. It is worn around the neck until. marriage. The most popular style in Araucanian ear-rings are pendants of solid silver. Las Aranucanas also wear hairpins and other capillary at tractions, and shawl pins, but not bracelets or anklets. These Indian women make Spartan mothers. Their courage and determination are as pronounced as their physical strength. There are many historical inei dents which illustrate this. Many years ago the Araucanian tribe rose against the Spanish, and, by remarkable efforts of bravery and strategy, regained land %ithin forty miles of Santiago. The leader had the magnificent temerity to plan a nocturnal assault on that capital, but his marching orders were betrayed by one of his lieuten ants. The wife of this lieutenant, with nearly a thousand other Indian women. fought in the Arancanian army. She had her eighteen-months-old boy with her, and when she was informed of her husband's treachery she beat her child's brains out against a tree, saying that she would not rear the child of such a father.
