What a trivial thing will oolur the whole
of a man's life I How small au incident,
oompared to the large future he has map
ped out for himself, may make or mar it I
I learned all this and more one sultry May
day in Mexico five years ago.
I had been sent to Mexico as chief of a
surveying oorps to establish the boundaries
of the Santo Anita grant, which lay along
the Bio Claro just outside the city of Chi
huahua. It was a responsible position for
a young man, and I held my head high.
It was the day of La Fiesta de San Gua
dalupe. The saint himself had been dead,
I understood, several hundred years, but
in Mexico that doesn't make any differ
ence. The longer folks are dead there the
more they seem to be thought of and the
biggor a birthday party they have. Almost
every other week contains the "feast day"
of some dead saint or saintess, and trade
and oommerce are suspended to do the oc
casion justice. The natives of Mexico are
the most perennially pious people on earth.
Why, I have known them men in my own
employ to be so enthused over the pos
thumous birthday ot some long dead saint
that they would get up in the gray dawn
to go about oolebrating It. This morning,
the morning of Guadalupe's feast day, the
whole foroe of peons under me had struck.
Mo ohainraen, no flagmen, no axmen were
left me. Only Sims and Bailey, my two
American assistants, staid behind. When
I began abusing them for the customs of
Mexico, they said while they did not care
even remotely for the saint to whom it
was dedicated, still they were glad it was
a holiday and they thought they would go
up stream and fish awhile. They were
only indifferent laymen, without any re
When I was loft alone in camp, I spent
a short time on my field notes, when it
came over me that I was wasting the day.
Just outside the chaparral the river was
laughing and murmuring in the open. It
seemed to ask me to walk beside it. Tho
adobe huts along its banks were tenant
less; their Inmates had gone to the feast.
But, strange sight, there at the bond of
the river where the waters were the mer
riest was a solitary worker, and whatever
it was she was doing, she was doing it
with a vim. A dark eyed, dark haired,
dark- shawled daughter of. Spain she
seemed to be, and yet she was working
and working hard on a "feast day I" A
fit of curiosity seized me to know what she
was doing and why she was doing it. I
approaohed her with the question on my
lips at what did she work, and por-kay (I
spoil it as I said it). Softly she raised a
pair of melting orbs and sweetly and elo
quently she answered me. From her reply,
In the most musical language in tho world,
I gathered that she would be at tho feast,
but that she must oloanso the soiled linen
that lay around her on tho sand, for the
owner of it, a gentleman who was staying
at the United States hotel, wanted it by
noon, and tomorrow would not do (she
said this plaintively). If it were Dot dono
by noon, she finished most pathetically,
she would get no diners, and that she
. needed In the superlative degree. Dlucro!
Ah, the next most potent tiling in Mexico
to saints' days is money I
As her red Hps told me this, her great
black eyes wandered from tho soiled
clothes at her feet to the spires of the ca
thedral in the distance and the waving
foliage of the plaza whore the feasting and
merrymaking were going on. There was
a look of sadness and longing in them as
she gazed. Being a tender hearted man, I
asked her if thorowas aught I could do for
her.- In a wondorful mixture of Anglo
Spanish, which I invented while in Mex
ico, and which no one could ever master
but myself, 1 assured her 1 was at her serv
loe if she so desired and asked how I could
The black eyes flashed gratitudo ere, the
scarlet mouth said, in silvery sweet tones,
"Would you sit on a rock beside ine and rub
tho shirts of the gentleman on a large rock
with a vory small rockf"
Looking baok now in the light of ma-
tar wisdom, I can gee that I should have
deollned that job on the grounds that it
was too uneesthetio. But I didn't. On
the contrary, I acoepted it effusively.
There was a touch of romanoe about it
that appealed to me the day itself began
to appeal to me for the first time. I began
to feel something of the enthusiasm for
feast days that had taken my men out be
fore daybreak. I would not be so hard on
them again, I thought. Truly it was a
very pretty custom, and I began to sympa
thize with it and to understand It better.
If San Guadalupe had not been so long in
terred, in the gladness of my heart I would
have sent him a bouquet. All this I tried
to confide to Lucia. It touched her; it
sounded, she said, like stories she had read
in the convent. '
Her name was a poem In itself Lucia
EulallaGraoia y Valdez. And mine? After
that poem it seemed common to say that I
was plain Jaok Biggs. But she anticipat
ed me. She pointed to one of my business
cards that had escaped my vest pocket
when I threw it on the sand. "Meester
Beegs, que nof" she lisped, and it did not
sound at all badly from her lips.
It was pleasant to know she did not dis
like my name. This was one way of say
ing, as everybody knows, that its owner
was not disagreeable to her. - ,
As we talked we washed, and long be
fore noon the gentleman's shirts were all
floating in the breeze from the low chapar
ral along the river bank.
Lucia Kulalla glanced gratefully and al
ternately at the snowy linen and at me. My
natural thoughtfulness led me to suggest
that we might as well do the family wash
ing while we were about It. Her brother
Antonio, the sheep herder, whom she had
mentioned with sisterly affection did Dot
his things have need of water? "There
is no time like the present," I said; "it
may set in tomorrow and rain for months.
Whoknowsf" . -
Luola Kulalla looked at the contradict
ing blue of the skies and laughed at my
weather prophesies, but she ran to her
adobe dwelling few rods away and
brought from It a bundle of Antonio's
"things" Thov "had apparently been
waiting for me for years. His wardrobe
ranged from dingy bandannas to dingier
overalls. As I warmed up to the ambi
tious task of cleansing them, under Luola
Eulalia's approving smiles, all nature
seemed to sralle. The sun shone warm and
warmor, the river ran blue and bluer, for
Luola had "blued" it. She hod also "al
lowed" the root of a whole soap tree to
Antonio's garments. She was right in do
ing this, but somehow in my struggle
with the sheep herding stains of six months
I had distributed a good deal of lather
over my person. When this unaccustomed
fatigue began to show on me, Luoia Eu
lalia asked softly if I "had tire."
"Oh, no," I was declaring, "I have no
tire," when some approaching American
voices were heard. Lucia clapped her
hands tragloally, and running to the chap
arral began hastily to gather the linen
therefrom. I caught from her manner
that the owner of the shirts had tired ot
waiting and was ooming for them. I had
divined aright, but I had not divined far
enough. As they emerged from the ala
niuda to the west of the river I could see
they were a lady and gentleman. I had
almost managed a look of industry and in
nocence as they approached us and raised
my eyes to impress them with it, when
graolous saints I Guadalupe and great

I had robbed of the valedictory in 1887 at
Ann Arbor? True, I had no grudge
against him on that account, but my
dream of meeting him again and "making
it right" had not been like this I Maxwell
It was, with his stylish bride. He threw
me a careless glance at first, then I began
to dawn on him, slowly but surely. He
quizzed Lucia in miserable Spanish, in a
cowardly way, I thought.
"Quien es?" he said, indicating me.
Smilingly, as if pleased so to honor me,
Luoia presented me to Maxwell and his
wife as "Mi amlgo, Senor Beegs." I could
feel that the bluing and the soap root
and the river water were all mlngllug in
one grand river of perspiration toward the
collar of my nogiigee shirt. I could feel
that all the constellations iu the heavens
and all the mundune landscape around me
were waltzing giddily together. An in
tense longing for home and mother cams
over me that mere words cannot depict.
For one wild moment I thought I would
rush into my old chum's arms and tell
him "all," like the wronged hero in the
last act. I would say vehemently: "This
is not me regular business. I'm a civil en
gineer at two fifty a month. I'm only do
ing this for fun," eto.
But whilo I was thinking this how of
ten are our best intentions thwarted thus
Maxwell coughed. It was not a con
sumptive oough. It was just a little grat
ing sound that contained more painful
surprise and pity and regret than a volume
of Browning could. That froze me as I
stood or sat. Fixedly I gazed at the
Sierra Madres over his head, as if trying to
fathom the "lost" mines hidden there.
Maxwell's watch ticked in tho painful
"Alice," he said sternly, "we must not
miss that train."
Out of my life they went, with the
clothes I had washed for them, as sudden
ly as they came in. 1 strained my ears to
hear him say "Poor fellow I To come to
that rather' bright at college, but this
country seems to rob a fellow ot ambi

Perhaps the most notablo tendency
which Brooklynites display in speaking is
that of putting an r sound on ovory word

that " 'prehaps' something was so." Some

so, half the fine going to the informer.
For some reason engineers have not been
able to do all the whistling required by

Colonel William Perry Murphy. These
are the regular speakers, but in addi
tion they are re-enforced by volunteers
in different parts of the state. Iu this
manner they are enabled to give five or
six pithy, brilliant speeches in one even

who have given the matter no thought
that suffrage does not involve cranks,
ill bred, ignorant, coarse or immoral
people, but that, on the oontrary, its
tendency is to bring together the best
types of womanhood and to elevate the
mental and social condition of the sex.

There Will Be a Chang;.
It is the opinion of the great Parisian
dressmakers that the spring of 1896 will
be notable in the annals of fashion on
account of the revival, with but slight
modifications, of the styles of gowns
which were in vogue when Louis XVI
was king of France, over a century ago.
While these makers of the mode have
not openly announced what they will
decree - for the year hence, yet most of
them are making plans in accordance
with this idea.
The real leaders of the world's modes
are of course the famous dressmakers of
Paris, though they beguile their rich or
royal customers into thinking that the
dressmaker has little else to do than to
execute or amplify the suggestions of
his patrons, while exactly the reverse is
true. Changes in style are always ac
complished by degrees. Every one knows
how practically impossible it would be
to compel a sudden and radical change
in costume, suoh as the abrupt transi
tion from the present mode to that of
the ancient Greeks, but even this would
be possible in time if the autocrats so
willed and threw their weighty influ
ence in favor of the revolution.
A Trilby Club.
There has recently been inaugurated
a Trilby club in Arlington, N. J., the
result of a dream of one of the most
charming of the young women of that
The qualification for membership in
this club is a left foot ; the credentials,
a picture of it. At present the club has
a score of members. Each has given the
picture of her left foot to the club, and
these form the art collection.
By unanimous consent the projector
of the club, so lovely was her Trilby,
was made president. A fear of publicity
keeps this club a secret organization,
but to give it on air of dignity one mar
ried woman has been made a member.
These pictures are all taken by the young
ladies and developed by one of their
number. Some of the photographs have
been seen. One especially is a beauty of
perfect outline and has the widely sep
arated toes over which Little Billee
raved, and which are small, slender and
graceful. Such another Trilby, the girls
proudly declare, it would be hard to
find, and none there has been to dis
pute this. New York Herald.
Miss May Cassatt.
One of the women who are becoming
famous in art is Miss May Cassatt, an
American who has lived in London and
Paris for many years. A critic says of
her: "If the signature upon each picture
were not 'Mary Cassatt,' it is doubtful,
so far as execution goes, whether any
observer would suspect that the painter
is a woman. Miss Cassatt's work is very
seldom defiant of her sex. It has none
of the 'chip on the shoulder' air, as who
would say, 'I am a woman, bnt I can
paint like a man,' that the aggressively
masculine touch of Miss Beanx, for ex
ample, sometimes suggests. To all ap
pearances, in technical attainment and
achievement, Miss Cassatt is simply un
conscious of her sex, and would put him
who examines her work into similar
mood. Her hand is quite as firm as a
man's. It ia a great deal bolder and
more precise than that of many of her
brethren at home and abroad. "
The Retort Significant.
I haven't any patience with women
or men, either who go about telling
unkind things of the people whose salt
they have eaten, says a Washington
woman. I heard Mrs. MoGuirk every
body in Washington knows Mrs. Mo
Guirk say something to a woman of
this sort that filled me with delight. It
was a well dressed woman, too a
woman who expressed the vulgarity
which was in her in this fashion. We
asked her where she had been.
"Oh," said she, with an air, "I've
been to Mrs. W. 's. There was a mob
there a lot of the nobodies she bribes
