ALL ABOUT GYPSIES.
THEIR ORIGIN, MANNERS, CUSTOMS AND METHOD OF LIVING. Tho General Impression Regarding the Race Is Wrong—Most of Them Are In dustrious in Their Own Way—They Do Not Like Civilization. A reporter has had Hie novel pleasure of passing an evening with a family of genuine full blooded gypsies at their home in this cii;^ To the average reader this statement Will not appear particularly startling nor interesting, for tho average reader is probably not sufficiently conversant with gypsies and their ways to be inter ested in a family of them which journeyed across the water to make a uew home in the United States. It is safe to say that tho popular idea of gypsies is far from being correct. All have seen our wandering uomads travel ing along our highways or bivoucking in their filthy tents and still more filthy camps. Ask ten people what a gypsy is and six of them will substantially say: "People who travel about tho country and exist by doing as little work as they can and by stealing all they can lay their hands upon." This impression is all wrong and there are few, very few, genuine gypsies in this country. Gypsies are a distinct race and nation ality in themselves; as distinct as the Germans are from tho Chinese or the Russians from the Americans. They are suppose to come, as their name indicates, originally from Egypt. They have a language of their own, the Romance chick, or -'Gypsy tongue," which is still preserved and spoken almost as purely as it was centuries ago. It is made up of the Egyptian, Hindoostanee, Rouman ian and other languages. Gypsies are scattered over all Europe, and there are today over 70,000 of them on that continent. It is not known wheu first they left their native country and began to make their appearance in Eu rope. They entered Germany in 112 a, and as early as 1531 many of them were in Scotland, following the occupations of actors and dancers and tinkers. They arc known to this day in Scotland a« "tinklers." The better and more pro gressive class of gypsies seem to have adopted Great Britain as their home. While the men have as a rule followed horse trading as a business, and the women fortune telling and basket mak ing, they have turned their hands to nearly all trades and occupations. NEITHER POOR NOR LAZY, Gypsies have figured as engravers, metal and iron workers, actors, artists, musicians, clergymen, evangelists, car penters, physicians and so on. Work ing upon iron and metals appears to have been their forte, however, next to dealing in horses. In 1726 they cast a large bell at Edgehill, and at about the same period they practiced engraving on pewter, lead and copper. Gypsies also conducted an iron foundry near St. Andrew's. In Hungary, in 1496, they made bullets and cannon balls. No one should for a moment think that gypsies are either poor, careless as to their personal, appearance or shunned socially by tho people with whom they come in contact. Many gypsies are very "well fixed" financially, and few if any in Europe or on the Continent are not well supplied with all the necessaries of life. They own valuable horses, fine wagons and caravans, comfortable tents and furnishings. In return, they have been entertained by kaiser and pope on the Continent, and by dukes and earls in England. One Charles Bosworth, agypsy "king," lived and flourished at Rossington in Yorkshire in 1709. According to aU ac counts Charles was a roistering blade and enjoyed himself to the utmost. History informs us that he "was a mad spark, mighty fine and brisk, keeping company with a great many gentlemen, knights and esquires." An idea of the social standing of the gypsies can be formed when in 1750 the Prince and Princess of Wales journeyed to Norwood to visit "Queen" Margaret. Like the Jews, the gypsies have for centuries been a greatly oppressed race, and great injustice has been done them. As late as 1872 forty-seven of them were arrested in Germany upon various charges and imprisoned. When they came to trial not one of the charges could be sustained and they were all re leased. HOW THEY LIVE. As a rule the gypsies are superior to many of the people whose countries they pass through. They are bright and ex tremely courteous. They remain frequently several weeks in one camp. Reaching a town they hire a camping ground, which is usually a large field affording sufficient pastur age for their horses and donkeys. The tents are pitched, the camp made and then the men begin to buy and sell horses—this in England and Scotland ia called "coping," it being difficult to cope with a gypsy on horse dealing—and the women devote their spare time to basket making and fortune telling. There is a throng of visitors about their camp the greater portion of the time, and a tribe usually takes more money out of a town than it brings in. The camp is a model of picturesque ness. The tents are small affairs, the grassy soil being the floor, generally cov ered with dry leaves gathered from the neighboring hedgerows. In front from a tripod hangs a large kettle, and the women wearing dresses and shawls of bright gay colors combine to make the scene a most cheery one. The gypsies are great tea drinkers and brew the bev erage in a way that would have delight ed the heart of "Sairy Gamp."—Now York Recorder. Benzine Takes Out l'nint.

Chancy used to practice medicine in Carrollton. He went to Carrollton the other day in his buggy, and while there traded an old debt for a good horse, and started out for Boston THE LOS ANGELES HERALD TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 23, 1892 m his new buggy, leading his new horse. When he was nearing the Little Tal lapoosa river bridge at Kingsberry's mill he suddenly heard a roaring among the trees, which he instantly supposed to be a storm. Looking up the hill he saw tho forest in commotion and the trees falling and bending toward him, and in the midst of it a huge body, which proved to be a snake. The doctor put whip to his horse and was quickly on the bridge. Feeling the buggy jerk ho looked back and saw the snake swallow tho horse he was leading and plunge into the river just above the bridge, and jtiet as tho snake poked his head out on tho other bank of the stream his tail was still up on the side of the hill, his body reaching clear across the river. The- horse, having on now shoes, kicked through the stomach of tho snake, and tho snake stopped and tho 6tream was dammed, and the water rose and floated the snako to a level with the bridge. The doctor jumped out of the buggy, took out a big knife and, cutting the liolo larger whcro the horse's feot were sticking out of the snake's body, the horse flounced out and mounted tho bridge. The doctor secured him to his buggy and drove on, but by this time tho water had backed till tho horse had to swim the low ground, but they mado their escape.—Atlanta Constitution. A Salted Undershirt for the Grip. Five years ago 1 was suffering with a very severe throat trouble, so much so that 1 did not expect to live. An ac quaintance told me that he could give me a remedy that would cure it and, as 1 had tried all of the doctors in my town without receiving any benefit, 1 decided to try the remedy suggested. I tried it, was permanently cured of my cough, and besides I discovered that I was not subject to colds. I served a palace car company for two years in that time. I was conductor, running in the states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Flor ida, Tennessee and Alabama. I was of course subjected to very hot cars in win ter, aud of necessity had constantly to get out in the cold at all hours of the night. In all that time 1 have never had a cold pr the grip. You will be astonished at the remedy. It is simply to wear a salted undershirt. Tako a summer undershirt and soak it in brine made with, say, a half pint of ordinary salt to about a quart of water, and put out to dry. Wear this shirt next to the body. It is not unpleasant to wear and will, 1 am sure, keep off grip and bad colds, and, 1 firmly be lieve, consumption. If I were to live to be eighty years old, I have so much faith in the salted shirts that I would never cease to wear Uiem.- My reason for pre ferring the thin gauze shirt is because the salt makes a heavy shirt too stiff and hard. Wear the heavy shirt over the salted shirt.—Cor. New York Times. Dr. Fridtjof to Lecture.

It is said that olive growing will have a wonderful impetus throughout south ern California during the next few months, because of the present very large crop of olives, tho introduction of new methods and machinery for making olivo oil, and especially because of tho splendid prices the olive growers are getting for their crop this season. Olive growing has reached such a stage in Pomona valley that two olive mills are now being built for immediate use there. Prices for cured or pickled olives are as high as ever, and the demand for olive oil is far in excess of the supply.— San Francisco Chronicle. Ladies Capture a 'Possum. Three ladies of Rockingham county, Va., on their way home from church, treed a 'possum. One of them ascended the tree and shook the animal to the ground, and the other two, who were married, caught him. One of tho latter, on reaching home, let the animal run loose in her husband's room, and he was nearly scared to death on finding him there when he awoke. —Spirit of the Valley. A Movable Sidewalk.

They Came Down from the Supreme Court The of the Btate supreme court yesterday received two decisions, of which the following are the points: The first was in the matter of the estate of Henry S. Burton. The pro ceeding was taken to have the court de termine tbe rights of all persons to the estate of Henry S. Burton and fix upon whom distribution thereof should be made. The court below iound that five- Bixths of the Rancho Jamul, a tract of 8125 acres in San Diego county, had descended to Maria A. Burton, Nellie de Pedrorena and Henry H. Burton, and that through the foreclosure of a mort gage executed by these heirs, the plaintiff, Maggie Leach, executrix of the will of Wallace Leach, deceased, bad succeeded to tbe property. The supreme court affirms the judgment. An opinion was handed down also in the case of Morrill et al., appellants, ys. Nightengale et al. This is the case in which certain members of the Mil waukee Furniture company sought to enforce against Newell Nightengale a contract which the latter claimed he had entered into upon duress. The amount claimed was $43,000. The case was tried a few years ago before Judge Wade and a verdict was rendered for Nightengale. The supreme court affirms the judgment. Two Powerful Headings. The audience which greeted Mr. Cable on Saturday evening at the Loa Angelea theater waa appreciative and hearty. Mr. Cable was heard to say that he hoped it would be his good fortune to Bee as appreciative a one tonight. Rev. Mr. Bugbee named Charles Dickens and George W. Cable as the two men of our time possessing both creative powers of the novelist and the re-creative power of the actor. Every trick of manner and speech, every characteristic pose and gesture of the street urchin, the piquant accent and significant ahrug ol the Creole, and the boisterous fervor of the backwoods parson were all reproduced with most telling effect. Tuesday even ing the wit, wisdom and nonsense of Dr. Sevier (pronounced on Mr. Cable's au thority aevere) will be presented, and quaint Creole songa in Mr. Cable's fine tenor will be added. To enjoy a rare treat, and to aid the worthy object which the ladies have in hand, hear Cable tonight. Iroquois Clubs.
