VISIT TO ASUNCION.
The Trip of MniStr Oranmile Stupt From Moniteido to the Capal of Paragwy. UP A RIVER FULL OF ALLIGATORS. blg Citiee That Have not One Wooden Heuse -Some Features of the Country and Its People. In a letter to a friend in this rity, IHin. fGranville Stuart, United States minister to Uruguay and Paraguay, glves soni In teretling notes on'the ocantion of hisI trip to Asunlon, the capiital of the latter (oun* try, from which he had Just returned. "We went to Paraguay to deller my credentials and to msathe worst weather here, which Is in August and September. We had a fine large steamboat and went up the river a thousand miles to Asul clon, the capital, whtIh Is a quaint old bloorish-Spanish city, houses mostly one story and all flat roofed, of flat tiles laid in water proof mortar, where the people spend many of their evenings, and morn Il.gs, too. in good weather. There is not one wooden house In the pIlace of about 3.(lO0 Inhabitants. So there are no fires to burn up blocks, in fact the only fires In the city are very small ones in the very small est of kitchens, ten feet square being an S.tra large one. "The main part of the city Is paved with rather rough blocks of trap rock, hard ai flint. The sidewalks are only about four feet wide, mostly of trap also, but around a large part of the government Llhlldinln the pavement li of a splendid sundatone in large smooth slabs. The country around Asuncion li red sand, cov. eled with trees and bushes, but as the (cfly is in a little basin on the river sur rounded by low hills, the roads and clear dI spots wash badly and bring the sand down into town. In the outskirts after a hard rain it fills the streets up about a foot, which has to be shoveled off the street car track and carted down to the river, which, even up there. Is larger than the Misaissippl, and of so gentle a current that brigs and schooners sail up there from the ocean. I saw some rather large ships there, and several Braslllian Iron-clads lay off the town. They came up this river to get to some of their pro. %inces, and the river is navigable for more than another thousand miles above lhre, In Brasil and Bolivia, and is full of alligators. Maybe I didn't have fun shoot Ing them from the boat. "Paraguay I. a lovely country, rolling wooded ridges with little creeks between, and higher up toward Villa Rica, one hun dred and twenty-five miles, where I went on a railroad which begins at Asuncion and ends in a swamp forty miles beyond Villa Rica, (and which iL the only one In the country), the country is cut up with a network of low, beautiful moun tains covered with woods. While the val le.yn are mostly pranrle, with tall grass and some swamps, most of the trees are of wood nearly as hard as iron, which sinks like a stone in water, and yet those big trees have masses of beautiful pink flowers. Others are full of snow white flowers, and beside their own they often have the flowers of climbing plants anl vines. Beautiful roses climb over the tops of small trees and a great many kinds of cactus bear lovely flOwers. Some of the cactus are eight inches through near the around, and run up nearly twenty teet high, with branches like limbs of trees, but no leaves, only scarlet flowers. I was astonished at the endless variety of 24 and 26 24 ad 26 South Main St. THE BEE HIVE Holiday Goods, Toys, Dolls, Games SAND ALL ARTICLES SUITABLE FOR CHRISTM7 S " PRESENTS.
