MINISTER TO MEXICO. A VISIT TO THE HOME OF HON. THOMAS RYAN. ttm la Cardial la His Greetings to Amer- I leans Who Visit Him, and Popular with J tho Pooplo of Mexico—Tha Scnorltas Are Toad of Mrs. Ryan. Boston, Sept. 14.—"You'll find the latch string on the outside of the door in genuine western style," replied a member of the American colony ln the City of Mexico whom I had asked concerning the recep tion visitors were likely to receive at the house of Thomas Ryan, envoy extraordi nary and minister plenipotentiary of the United States. , It is but a short walk from Hotel Itur bide to the opposite end of the public gar den or alameda. The number of Minister Ryan's house had been given to me, but it was unnecessary. As I neared the outer BON. THOMAS RYAN. edge of the alameda I could see the United States flag over the big door of a two story house in the center of the block, on the opposite side of the street. It was a typical Mexican oasa, such as the wealthy classes here delight in. The big, heavy iron doors, that are high and wide enough to admit a coach and four, stood invitingly open. I entered and pretended at first not to see the door at the side of the passageway, for I wanted to take a peep at thecourt within. The house, like all other Mexican dwellings, is built In the form of a hollow square. The better class of Mexicans seldom use the ground floor of their houses as living rooms. The room fronting the street and entered from the passage within the big doors is usually occupied as a business office, either by the owner or a tenant. Tbe very wealthiest Mexicans are not above renting out a portion or the whole of the ground floor of their residence for business purposes. One of the finest private resi dences in the City of Mexico has a railroad and insurance office on the first floor. An other peculiarity is the using of a portion of the court as a coachhouse. The horses may be kept in a private stable, but the best carriages are nearly always kept where tbe owner can keep his eye on them. A bed of tropical flowers may make pictur esque tbe center of the court, but its beauty ia too often detracted from by tbe presence of tbe coach and possibly tubs and other washroom and kitchen utensils. It is is the balconies above that the Mex icans lavish aU their care and eesthetic tastes. Here flowers, fountains and the presence of dark eyed beauties with Span ish mantillas thrown over their heads tend to make an effective picture. Minister Ryan has dropped into Mexican ways so far as to keeping his private coach in the court, but otherwise the court looks aa unlike that of the Mexican as day dif fers from night, for it is clean swept, neat and trim. I did not find the "latchstriag on the outside of the door," as I had been told I would, but ln its place I found a Yankee improvement over the latcbstring in the way of a small wire. I pulled the wire ex pecting to bear the tingle of a bell in re sponse, but instead tbe door opened, for the wire simply pulled back the catch. I entered and stepped into the front room. A yonng man arose from his desk and ad vanced to meet me. He was American from the curl in bis blond mustache to tbe tips of his shoes. Edwin C. Butler is his name, and be does duty as the chief clerk of the legation, and this front room is his sanc tum. "You will find Mr. Ryan in the center room at the head of the stairway; walk right up," said Mr. Butler, and that was all the formality there was about getting an interview with our representative in Mexico. Half way up the stairway hangs a pic ture of George Washington. It is said that some Mexicans who, though they may be familiar with the name, are not so well ac quainted with the features of the father of our country, have asked if this picture represented any of Minister Ryan's ances tors. One senorita, after being corrected in this mistake, got out of it by remarking that she hardly thought it possible that Minister Ryan could hare so little hair while his father had such an abundance. However, laying the hair aside —Washing- ton's hair, I mean—there is some ground for such a mistake, and Mexicans who are not familiar with historic American fea tures are excusable in their errors. Min ister Ryan is looked upon by all Mexi cans as a man considerably above the ordi nary, and quite capable of doing our na tion proud in all diplomatic matters. They think his advice well worth seeking and often ask it even iv matters outside of state affairs. I found Minister Ryan seated at his desk by a window overlooking the alameda. The greeting was most cordial, and after meeting him I could better understand his popularity among the people here. He is the happy possessor of an easy, gracious air that inspires confidence and makes one feel at once as though tbe acquaintance bad been one of long standing, i Tbe whole front of the bouse is occupied jby three reception rooms known as the White, Red and Blue rooms. Tbey were thrown open for my inspection, aud as I walked about among the pretty American furniture —the first I had seen in Mexico— I forgot for the time being that I was in a strange land. The carpets, curtains, dra peries, center table, mirrors, bric-a-brac, were all delightfully pleasing to the eye, and tbe big armchairs and tete-a-tete in the Blue room invite one to tarry and rest awhile. The color of the silk coverings of the furniture in each room gives the dis tinctive names, Red, White and Blue. The Mexicans most admire the Blue room, but to most Americans tbe White room is most attractive, as it shows to best advantage in the peculiar white sunlight of Mexico. It might also be termed the Gold room, for tbe large center table and the chairs are white and gold, while the heavy frame to tbe mirror that covers nearly half of one "wall is deeply glided and the paper hang ings are embossed in red, white and gold. Every Thursday afternoon at 4 o'clock Mrs. Ryan holds a reception, and these rooms are thronged with members of the Mexican 400 and ladies of the American colony. Mrs. Ryan is quite as popular among the Mexicans as her husband. Her favorite pastime is horseback rid ing. She may be seen every fine morning riding through the alameda or out Paseo de la Reforms, the avenue leading to Chapultepec. She also delights in riding out on tbe country roads, and always re THE 106 ANGELES HERALD: 9ATXJRDAT MORNING, OCTOBER 3, 1891. turns with a bunch of wild flowers plucked from the roadside. If tt ever becomes v fad among Mexican ladies to ride horseback, it will be because Mrs. Ryan has set the example. As a rule Mexican ladies never indulge in pleasures that cannot be practiced within the se clusion of their own houses. Recently a very few have ventured to do a little horse back riding in private. loiter they may venture on the public streets and riding become quite the fashion, but there are many prejudices to l>e overcome before this comes to pass. After I had inspected the reception room a visit was made to tho dining room. It is not a very large room, but at times it does good service. No less than iWO partook of the dinner given by Minister Ryan to General Miles at the time of his visit to the City of Mexico. The table was reset several times, but all partook of the meal. In all there are nineteen rooms in the house occupied by Minister Ryan, and for which be pays a rental of WM a month. For the same accommodations In any large city in tbe United States this would be a very high rent: but in Mexico it is consid ered a "bargain," as rents are very high here and houses suitable for private resi dences very hard to get at any price. Liv ing is proportionately high, especially so iv articles such as Americans prefer. Tea sells at |3 a pound, and coffee at 90 cents a pound, while soda crackers are 62 cents a pound, and granulated sugar 50 cents a pound. Good American flour is hard to get even at $15 a barrel, and ham costs 50 cents a pound and deviled ham 90 cents a pound. Oatmeal sells at cents a pound, fine table salt at S5 cents a quart, and apples are scarce at *10 a barrel. These are but n few of the many articles that are necessary to an American table, but they serve to show the cost of living here. In returning from the dining hall to Minister Rynn'a oflice in the Red room 1 caught a glimpse of a spare bedroom through a half opened door. What seemed most interesting to me in that room was the first Henuinc American bed I had seen In six weeks. It had a look that suggested a good mattress and springs. It would never have done for Minister Ryan to hava asked me to remain with him unless he really meant it, for after seeing that bed I should have accepted the invitation at once, and any one who has had a six weeks' struggle with Mexican beds would excuse me for doing so. Boards act as a substitute for springs in most Mexican beds, and Mexico is particularly famous for woods of the hardest varieties, and the best selections are always to be found in the beds. Unless ono is well cushioned with fat, the chances are that it will be some weeks before a whole night can be passed iv a Mexican lied without getting up at regular intervals to rest one's self. There are no beds of this sort in Minister Ryan's house, for such as he has are strictly American, and great curiosities to many Mexicans. It is said that some of the Mexican ladies consider it a mark of special favor to be allowed to inspect the guest chamber. They hold up their hands aud ejaculate their most expressive "Oil's" upon seeing the width of the bed and t he big pillows. How one can ever sleep with his head on such pillows without breaking his neck is more than they can understand. But the pillows in the guest chamber at Minister Ryan's house are not stuffed with palm bark, as are some Mexican pillows. A PARLOR VIEW. After I had asked all sorts of questions of Minister Ryan and put Mrs. Ryan to no end of trouble in opening blinds and pull ing back curtains that I might kodak the furniture in the White room, I bade them good morning. Americans who visit Mex ico may depend upon it that they will re ceive acordial reception, and that the latch string is always on the outside of tha door at the house of Minister Ryan. AVAIiD MOOBE. Some Tounjr Explorers. LONDON, Sept. 4.—This age has had a number of young explorers, and whom to mention first is truly an embarrassment of choice. Camille Douls, wbo was murdered by his two guides while crossing the Sa hara, was only twenty-five years of age, a native of the south of Fraoce, and settled in Tangier, where he perfected himself in Arabic. During his first exploration, dis guised as an Arab, he fell iv with a tribe of nomad Moors who, refusing to recog nize him as a Mussulman, condemned him to death. Buried to the neck in sand, a vessel of water just beyond his lips, he was about to be abandoned when, with rare presence of mind, he began chanting prayers from the Koran. This convinced the Moors he was a Turk, and they welcomed him into the tribe. With them he roamed the western Sahara for six months, during which ho visited the slave market at Tindouf and witnessed the massacre of three caravans. After leaving the tribe he journeyed across the Atlas range to Morocco, where his identity was discovered, and he was imprisoned by the sultan and released only by the intervention of tho British minister. A year later he returned to France, bat tiring of civilization, he' left Paris for Timbuctoo—the last seen of him. The youngest explorer, then, since Douls' death, is Serpa Pinto, a young Portuguese major, twenty-six years old. He has trav ersed Africa from one end to the other, sou to sea, east to west, and on entirely differ ent routes from those followed by Stanley and his predecessors. He is intensely pa triotic, and independent and original in all his undertakings. Something more than a pair of sturdy legs and a fasting stomach an explorer stands in need of who would command at tention theso days. Herbert Ward, then, lieutenant and friend of Stanley, having proved he had both, and more—ardor, dis cretion and initiative ability—is entitled to all the honor and gold he has reaped from his adventures, both from his book and the lectnrc platform. Mr. Ward is just twenty-seven, and looks like a mighty ath lete, brown as long residence under a tropic sun can make an Englishman. H. P. A Drag-gist Surprised. J. G.
