" » « ««ne l ack uiy black yed chick,in
was gone.
What o'clock, >>ld witch—"
shrilly sang seven of the b.-althy, happy
young Nine Killer». The witch, a Creek
girl, industriously kind loi a real fire, boiled
an imaginary kettle, preparatory to the cap
ture of the flock zealously guar.I**J by the
h»*n mother.
Time, Octolier, 1VJ4; pla-e, the Cherokee
reservation, Indian territory.
"Entertainment fur mans and hors." -o
said the sign hanging over the low door of
the ' Nine Killer tavern," a broad, low sol
hou-u, with a comfortable dug-out near by.
Mr. and Mrs. Nine Killer were tli « owners of
fertile acres; yet a very little stirring of the
soil satisfied Mr. Nine Killer. A putch
of corn, another of melons, an 1 a small
garden supplied their want» v while the
travelers were not numerous eu< ugh to make
much exertion necessary.
In close proximity to t'ie house, seven
white canvas-covered wagon* «to<» I, th»
sleef ing a|«u*tments of a number of young
brav«*. Clad in hunting shirt» and buck
skin legging», they lean«»! against these
wagon«, watching me curiously and covertly
from under white rimmel «touched hats, a«
1 sat in tie* low doorway interested in the
growing »mal Inc»» ,.f the fl«*ck of chicks.
Only one left. With a vigorous flapping of
wings and a ioud crowing the hen mother
essayed to save that «»ne; but the wary
"witch" showed no mercy. iSooit the chick«,
crane and cr«>w weie ready for the boiling,
stewing <>r frying that awaited them.
"Adee, Adee," called Mr«. Nine Killer,
the Cherokee boatos«, which meant that the
Creek girl was wanted in the kitchen. Mrs. *
Nine Killer wa» a woman to Us ot*eyed
promptly. Rdin tautlv the witch left her
chicks to fetch coal and water and wait on
the cooks
The kitchen, dining-room and bed-r»om,
all iu one, was a «dark, long an«l narrow
room. At on» en«l stood tue cooking range,
but the numerous ve-sels were seldom used.
Mr- Nate Killer t<elieve«l in taking her ease
and washing few dishes Dried venison an l
rabbit hams, also pieces o bacon hung over
head; string* of pumpkin and dried apples
were in convenient corner-; cheerful biddies,
lordly chanticleers in gay plumage wi»n
perfectly at home, f>er**h«*l about upon the
chaiis* and tnblt»s; »logs un i cats lay close to
the range, unmindful of the kicks bestowad
upon them by Mrs. Nine Killer and her three
servants.
For oiir dinner, A lee hastily stirr»»d to
g»»;her coni meal, a handful of pumpkin
»aucs*. another of ) re-s,-l-«»ut cracklings;
mixul it witii water and set it in the oven to
bake. Mrs. Nine Killer steep»»d in cold
water half eruaiie l cott'ee I »er ries, then
boiled for an hour that tieverage.
"Would y.ju like butter for dinner!" Mrs.
Niue Killer {K»litf!y nupiirei.
Bent u;ioii plea .mg me, »he set Adee to
making the butter, a pn»ce«s to me entirely
new, the way she made it. Louring a small
quantity of sour cream into a quart bowl,
the Creek girl patiently boat with an iron
spoon the frothing cream until the butter
came. Tins was &kiimued utf and pin el un
»ulte«i before tne.
A bowl of pumpkin sauce, liberally
sweetened with molasses, was the sole desert
The omi «-ake was imlatable, though so
dark in color a» to spoil its relish. The meat»
were varied and abundant Cold roost wild
turkey, prairie chicken, thin slices of dried
veiii'ou and rabbit bams were piled 1-igh be
fore me.
Around me stood the children, ready for
their dinner, which wa« given them in their
hands, the cats and «logs claiming their al
lowance tat Not «»ne of the family ate
with me, and the table was spread all after
noon for the convenience of the hunters, who
came and went as it pleas*« 1 them.
Iu another apartment an upright [dano
stood, and a silk >lre*s hung upon the wall.
Lroudly, Mrs. Nine Killer hastened to tell
me that 1 had n<>t yet seen her daughter,
who was attending college. School book«,
«beet music, a neat work-basket, and bright
colored zepkry», ali the property of Dodo
Nine Killer, made the «mall room seem
home-like, "girlytied '
"Dodo team all, eberyting; den learn us to
know uni. too, w hen she git her-." said the
proud mother, fondling the heuv ily jet em
broidered silk dr«»»».
A shrill »«-ream from Adee, who Ltd pulled
a kettl • of water, boili .g hot, f.-orn the
range, »railing herself, a numb-r of unfor
tunate fowl», cats and cogs, called Mrs.
Nine Killer to th«« scene. Lour Ad-»e's bare
feet were severely scalded. Tenderly, Mrs.
Nine Killer applied remedies, at the same
time scolding l »udly the careless servant.
My pony w as at the door, and the long
ride before me advised me to hasten; yet I
was unwilling to leave the "witch - ' in such a
sorry plight. In the playground, Adee's
place wa» filled by another "witch," a larger
girl, one that 1 had not »«en. As 1 r*sie ;
away, the young Nine Killers had again be
gun circling about the old witch, anl were
singing in iiigb-pitcbe<l voice-«, "Cnick, oh i
chick, my crane," etc., baa dless of the loud
gr >ans of tlie suffering Adee.

SOME MATRIMONIAL ADVICE.

T
i
hh raaed fully m» tcHl if not bmlitr than l

I think too iiiDrh is sai«l by tlie men in a
light and flippant manner aU»ut the anxiety
of young lailies to secure a home an«i a hus
liaial. and still they do deserve a |*art of it, as
1 feel that 1 do now for assuming a great
burden wben I was couqieratixely in«ic|*end

Now . will you sugg«-st any a«lvi«v that you
think wouki lienetit tin- yet unmarried ami
■elf-xupporting girl* w bo are liable to make
tlie same uiistatft- that 1 did, an I thus warn
them iu a manner tliat w«»ul«l lie so much
more universal in its range ami reach so
many more |*i«ple than 1 <»>uld if 1 should
raise my voice! IK> this and yoq will !*• grate
fully remembered by Eth Kb
it would imleed lie a tough, tough man
who could ignore thy gentle plea. Ethel;
tougher far than the |*ale, intellectual hin» I
man who now a<l<lres*es you in thi* private
and umlerhamt manner.
Y'ou sav that you had more pocket money
ls-fc»re you were married than von haie
sin«-e. Ethel. :;n«l you r«-gr«-t your rash step
1 aia sorrv to h«ar it. Y'«.*u also sav tkut you
w«»re better clothes wben you were single
than yon «I«» now. You are also («nimil over
that. It sti-ins that marriage with you has
not p:«i«l anv cash dividends. Soif you mar
rie«! Mr. Ethel as a financial venture it wa*
a nhs*ak« You do not state how it has
a fl»»b <1 y> U" husbaml. IV rtmp» lu- lia«l mon

when tls*'. go into partnership th«-y bust
higher than a kite, if y*»u will allow in«« tlte
free English translation of a K««nan expn«*
■on which you might n«»t fully um Urständ
if I ahouki give it to you in the original
Roman.
Lot» of self-supporting young holies have
mam«»! and have to go ver>- light on |>in
mon««y after that, and still they «lid not
squeal, as you, dear Ethel. They di«l not
marry for revenue only. They married for
protection. (This is a little p«>liti*-al bon
mot which I thought of myself. Some of
my best jok«*s this spring are jokes that I
thought of myself.)
No, Ethel, if you maiTi«tl exjecting to l>e

to go through Mr. Eth«-Ts noekets at night
an«l «leclare a dividend, of course life is full
of bitter, bitter reglet and disap)H>in!mcut.
Of course I want to do what is right in the
solemn warning business, «o 1 will give
notice to all sint]4e young women whoare
now self-supporting ami ha|*py that there is
no »tatute requiring them t«r assume the

-t 1* a fact, frankly acknow 1 « lg«»J, that
th.- R nnau L'atnolio church in Mexico is
n *w surrou i.ie l by the rums only of it«
former greatness. Fifty years ag«i this opu
letlf institution owned over three-flftbx of
the flity of Mex.co. The i lieu : ne of the
ari-hbishop was greater than that of tue
«juceii of England. In 1827 there were 150
convent* and mona»teriM in Mexico. (>n»
tentli of tiie prixluct* of the country went to
the clergy as titlk-s. Th» estimated
value of church property iu 18VJ
was fdJO.OOO.OJIl. oae-third of the entire
ptaiperty of the nation. In the City of M-x
kai there were 5.«WO hou-e». valuei at $80.»
000,000, of wiiK'h the church «. wiied more
than "lie-hall. D- »nies ruse iu every block,
the croes was hftnl upon every Land. The
annual income of the church in tlie City of
Mexim w as j JO,000,00 (, while tiiat of the
republic was «»nly #18,000,001 The clergy

#4o,<MJ.0OQ. lletweeu Puotila and Api/a«ro,
a distance of thirty mite«, wer>* 124 churches,
and tie valley «>f Pue: la numbered .i«V»—one
for eacli day m th*- year.
Tlie grand cathedral stand* up >n the site
of ti e A/tec Tecx-alli; it covers ti space of
420 by 500 feet, uud its high altar, which is
m the center of th«j eiiflce, i* above the spot
on«» occupied by the sacrificial stone. The
choir I» one ma«' of elaborate carvings; ex
tending around it, ami leudmg to (lie high
aitur. probably 210 f**et, is a raitiag of lum
bag ». iiiuiiufactiired in Churn, ami weighing
twenty-dx Urns. It i* a brassy-!«»»king

alloy of cop|»er t but c «ntaiiiiug so much
gold that an offer has been made to replai-e
it with pure -liver, mi l give many thousand
dollars in uddition. The attar its-If. placed
upon a marble idatform, is of
wrought ami p»dished silver, ami the
whol«« 'urinouuted bv a small temple,
in which formerly rested the figure
«»f the Virgin of Kem«Hlios, who was dres*e»t
in three pettic at*—one einbroklertsl with
pearls, another with emerulils. and a third
with diamonds the value of which was
over #3,000 000. This was only one part of
one «-burch in Mexico, and that -aid cut to
be the richest.
I dropped into the -acrlsty on«» day, au l
found two or three ; mu 1res indulging in a

! teere«! to show til» the magnifi .-ent set of

Tue cathe irai of Puebla is the best speci
men of architecture I have seen in Mexico.
The material is blue basalt, and the mas
sive buttre»»es ami lofty towers w ithout, the
noble arches and artistic pillars w ithin, giv«»
u dignity and solidity often lacking. A
favorite legen 1 tell» us that while in procès*
of building, this cathedral gained mysteri
ously in height duriug the night exactly at
much as the masons had aci-ouiplished dur
ing the day. Th is was said to ba the worh
of two angels who came down from heaven,
and wrought with golden trowels in
their hands, bt-uoe the city iio<juired th«
n.'uuu of "Puebla de los Angel«»" (the City
of the Angel-1.
Here, the great altai aff«*id* the finest dis
play of Mexican marbles in the republic,
ami beneath it is '.he sepulcher of ti e bish
ops. Before the revolution there de
[tended from t ie center of the vast dome
an •uormou» chandelier—a mass of gold
and silver weighing t«iris; one may
imagine its value trotn tlie tact that the cuet
of cleaning it ulone amounted to #4,<Xi0.
Here the «-amlelabra were «»f gold, and to
ponder- us that a strong man could not lift
tb««m; the is ueof the jewels was of historic
notoriety, and an imag • of the Virgin
boasted a sane of diamoml» value«! at #1,

The cathe Irai of Sauta (iuada'upe i» the
most famous in MeXico, and was once the
richest an l m«.-t venerated «J rine; but the
graml old Indian president, R-iuto Juarez,
coufi-cated most of its gold and silver orna
ments, and coined them into money, to carry
ou bis war against the church ]«arty. Even
the frame of solid gold which surrounded
the patron samt was taken, but this was
afterwar I returned. The altar railing,
weighing t ns. is of solid silver. This aluue,
of all the 'iimptuous «-burch tixtim»«, was

euce of tie bead waiter, 1 b-gan to lo» k
aroumi me tor au opportunity to
beam ou some uiqir«>t«-«-t*il woman with
my sunny -mil«-. It is uot my custom
while traveling to -mile ou oue in

It wa* uot long before I discovered a
beautiful Momie of the female sex at the
farther e*J of the room bamaath the
ebumh lier. Her skin seemed to be of a
delicate »ea-shell color, and lw-r hair wa*
corn colored. Her clothe* als.» were «-utiieiy
new, 1 should judge, and ma«le «-s|»e«-ially
for her. Uu her finger she wore a «liamoud
ring w ith perfect ease. t*he knew just how
to work tliat finger in on 1er to get the most
(lOssihle glitter out of lei diamoml. Every
little while 1 would 1» «>k over then and revei
iu her beauty, ami 1 thought tliat »he was
not entirely lusemdblc t«> my charm*. Still,
she looked at me in a kind«», a half repioacb
ful manner, which gave me the i*l*-a that I
«111 uot kn««w wheth«-r it was inteuti«u.:il or
uot.
All that evening «.e was in mv mind. 1
dream«-«! that night that I sw<«>p-d ilown
upon her and <-arri<«I her a wav to the re
oioteat bouudariu« of the work! in a spu ial
car. The next morning I awoke hungry,
for I didn't eat mu<h supper th* • veuiug
before. I went down b» biv«kta-t. waiting
ami fooling away my time, hoping tliat she
would coni" wlule I wa* in the br«»akfa.st
room, uud 1 would fill m* self iipvcthtbe
beautiful vision and a «.»uu of coffee.
An «mi she eame. She *a l«<d into ilie rum
with calm disdain ami un air«>f hauteur,
ami su«-h thing- as tl»at. Tlie lead waiter
waved his hau l lik*- a -elf-acting duke in a
tbcattc. uni gave her ji mt at mv table.
A thrill I«--«»! up through my g:»««vful aud
delii-atelv-molded spinal «iilnuin, and I laid
dowu the vulgar sausage which 1 wa» aliout
to fe»I myself » hen she »law mil upon me.
1 veutuivil then to look across tlie table at
her in the full glare of 'be new boni »lay.
(Btere« -scofiic view» of this last sentenea will
be forwarded to uuv .i»ldre*s at $1 per
glar««.) The fiist .hing that I diacovMwd
wa* that «be ha«! n't put her yellow wig ou
straight. It wa* a little higher on one ear
than th«- oth«»r, which gave her the air of a
voting man who lia* overnrnnki-ynl with tbu
flowing bowl. This -bowed to tbe m.-ual
-pc. tutor a glimpse of her own moth eaten,
sag«-brush hair pu* ping out like the fad««!
tail ou an old buffalo robe.
Th«-u I knew that w>- ronld never lie ra»»re
to each otla r than fri«*n-l*. H«»r n<*** was
red al*«», and she had not l**i*n [>ro|ier!y kal

that organ—meaning, of «nurse, the uo»e.
not the jsjwder-rag—loomed up robust ami
puiq»le iu the gha«tly waste of cheek bone*

Ah, what a [Mini it gave me to set» mv

Then I thought how- 1 ha«l smiled upon her
