Aa hurriedly along the crowded street I pushed my way, a woman's awful face Confronted mo and darkened all the place Wherein wo walked; then faithful memory fleet Bushed back into tho dusky past to meet Great Dauiu's creatures— all that direful race Of piteous souls that traversed hell's wild space And vainly halt led with the woes that beat Against the naked spirit. And I thought: This woman's lace to some lost soul belongs, Escaped from its dark prison and distraught; „ And now it glides among the eager throngs To clutch their souls with terror and restrain Their feet from luring ways that lead to pain. —George Russell Lewis. CURIOUS AND COSTLY CUSTOM. People Showered with Gold Dint-llotr Mexican Maidens Make s "Mnsli." Many interesting stories could be told of the cnscarone halls of tho past, but only one will ho mentioned as an instance of the popularity of this peculiar feature of the halls. On one occasion, at a ball given at tho residence of Don Jose Abrego, Pete Serrano, then a muchacho, was on hand selling coscarones. A gentleman ap proached and asked what he would take for his coscarones. "One dollar a dozen," was the answer. "Hi"» uiuuy have you!" was tho next inquiry. "Forty dozen." "All right, I'll take them." Taking the basket he started down the hall, hut had not taken a dozen steps when he was surrounded by n number of young ladies, and in a moment all hands were diving into the basket, coming out with double handfuls aud crashing them on his head, while he manfully strove to return a few of the compliments he received. In five minutes not one of the forty dozen coscarones remained whole. Tho modus operandi of cuscnronc mak ing is very simple, and aboutas follow : Into an empty eggshell—whole, except for an opening in one end just large cuotiglt to remove Die original contents—is placed about a teaspoonful of finely chopped pa per of various bright colors and gold tin sel; then the opening is neatly closed by pasting a piece of colored paper over it, and then the cascarone is till ready for use. In Mexico, in tho good old times, gold «lust mixed with diamond dust was often used to fill the egg shells at the swell fan dangoes given by the old grandees. And It is done occasionally nowadays by some of tliu wealthy oltl dons who wish to do the thing up in style. Another way of filling the shells was to use finely perfumed powder, aud some times rare and costly perf unies were used. Very often the shells were beuutifully decorated and sometimes hand painted. In Monterey, before the decline of the cus tom, the shells were often colored in fan ciful designs, like Easter eggs, and at oth er Dines tastefully decorated with differ ent colors of paper. Chopped paper and tinsel were usually put. in the shells, but on more than one occasion gold dollar pieces were used—one in each shell. Spiced eniuly was often used, and some times powder aud perfumery. House wives religiously save Die shells of all the eggs they use and put them away until cuscuronc season cotnes around. In cascarone breaking it is not neces sary that one should he acquainted—in fact, it is a sort «if "mashing" proceeding all through. The net of breaking a ens carnnc on another's head is to lie consid ered a compliment by the recipient, who is in honor bound to return it at the first opportunity. Tho projier way to break them is to crush the shell in the hand over the person's head, allowing its con tents to fall on the head. In the excite ment, however, tho shell is more fre quently broken on the head, regardless of locality or force used, and is oftentimes suggestive of anything but amiable feel ing on the part of the bestower. When the ice is once broken by some adventur ous maiden or plucky man the contagion soon spreads, atul in a very short timo everybody is chasing around the room breaking cascarones indiscriminately and receiving Diem from ail sides. These mock battles usually occur between dances.—Monterey (Cal.) Argus. Tlie Only Natural Drunkards. Drunkenness is a vice belongiug to no untion, but of ull races the Indians are the only natural drunkards. With other peo ple the taste for liquor is largely an ac quired one, but the Indian likes liquor the first time lie tastes it, and moderate drink ers are unknown among them. With this race intcnqierniico takes its most repulsive form. There is no couviviality aliout it, and 110c much enjoyment in driuking, the one object l>eing to get drunk ns soou as possible, and tho liquor that will most quickly produce this result is for them tho best. Xo amount of civilization seems able to eradicate or greatly modify this vice, those brought up fur from their own race exhibiting tho same insane desire for drunken insensibility that the wildest plains Indian does. There is no good natural stage of intoxication with them, the period preceding insensibility being one of bloodthirsty savagery. Whatever may be the cure among other races, total abstinence is, without question, the only course for the Indian to pursue.— S. F. Dodge in Globe-Democrat. No Thrashing Machines in India. Needless to remark that there tiro nc thrashing machines in India; as among the Jcv /3 in the days of the Old Testa ment, tho corn Is trodden out by oxen. This practice largely accounts for the dirty condition in wl ich Indian wheat arrives in England. The method of win nowing employed in India has also the merits < ? simplicity and antiquity. Choos ing a v ,:uly day, the cultivator or one of his family, ora laborer, takes a quantity of un winnowed corn into a basket speci ally made for the purpose, and, lifting it up, lets tho corn gradually fall to the ground, the wind blowing the chaff away. An exactly similar method is employed in Italy and parts of France, and perhaps is still known in parts of England. For cleaning the wheat lieforo grinding the 6 amc method is employed, another man sometimes standing by with another basket, fanning the wheat as it falls, in order to more effectually blow off the dirt.—Harold Cox. Another Snare for Innocent Youth. The tall ami slender young woman has found a new aud pretty wuy to arrange her summer sash. The tic, the loop and the twist are so coquettish that coat but tons and canes ' ecomo willingly involved in the intricate but graceful mesh. These sashes, on morning jaunts and twilight rides, are responsible for lot s of late break fasts and behind time teas. They catch in the bushes, you know, arc! bis fingers be ing all thumbs, why, of course—well, it takes time to free the fluffy scarf. It is not absolutely necessary that tall and slender maids only should twist the loops. Short maids and plump maids can work quite ns effectively with the silken net. Only it happened that a long and willowy maid put me up to this latest fashion note. «-San Francisco Report. Getting Acquainted. "Why, I did not know that you and that little girl hud got acquainted yet," said a Itoxbury father to his O-year-old son, who came in front a walk on the ad joining lawn with the tiny daughter of the new next door neighbor. "Yes, Clara and I have been 'quainted lots of days," said the very small boy. "What did you say to her first?" asked the father. "Oh, Clara spoke to me first; she came down by the chicken house and asked me how many prayers I say nights, and I told her, and then I asked her how many prayers she says, and she told me, and then we were acquainted."—Boston Record. The Daily Newspaper. Though the Sunday paper is more or less literary, 1 do not believe that it inter feres now, or will in the future interfere, with the circulation of the literary week lies and the magazines. All thinking men will naturally go to the weeklies and magazines to be informed on certain sub jects. A great change would lmvo to take place in the daily newspaper before it could be a serious opponent to the more carefully prepared weeklies and month lies.—Oswald Ottendorter In The Epoch. Dry and Wet Timber. A discussion is going the rounds of the press as L» the relative strength of wet or dry timber. We do not believe there is much to be made out of the discussion. Some kinds of timber are stronger when dry, while other kinds arc stronger when wet or green. But most hard woods when wet will possess more tensile strength than when dry. Timber thoroughly sea soned is more brittle than when green, and with the necessary force will break square off, while the same timber green will stand about the same pressure by landing more or less without breaking. Take a hickory sapling that is almost im possible to break iu its green state, al though it may bend double, and thor oughly dry it, and you may easily break it almost ''square off," as the boys say. So with almost any kind of timber. Dry ing makes it stiller, more uuyiclding, but in very few instances stronger.—Scientific Press. Unefut to Composern. Musical composers are indebted to sci ence for two new instruments. The mel ograplt is designed to accurately record the notes of any tune played upon a piano, and the melotrope 1 ms just been devised in France to faithfully reproduce upon any piano the pieces automatically copied by the first apparatus.—Arkansaw Trav eler. A f-ibstltute for Whalebone. A substitute for whalebone is licing inade of goose quills by a process described in this way: The quill is first run through the stripping machine anil stripped of its plumage; second, it is run through tho splitting machine, which splits the quill in two lengthwise; third, it is put through u machine which takes out the pith, to be used us a fertilizer; fourth, it is run iu a machine which cuts it into fine shreds; fifth, several of these shreds are wound together by a machine which makes a strong eortl; sixth, four of these cords nro sewed together by another machine which makes a Hat featherbone and ready for use. it can be made in all colors, accord ing to the color of the thread used.— Cleveland Leader. When Girls Should Ride. A well known riding master insists that girls should not lie taught to ride until they are 10 years old, because they are weak iu the spine when weak at all. But stout active boys can be put into the sad dle ns soon as they are large enough to hold on.—Harper's Bazar. Stalreuse of Rare Marble«. The grand hall staircase in the new Equitable building in New York city in cludes specimens of the finest and rarest marbles of the entire world. Drafts have been made upon the historic Roman quar ries and the marble mines of India and other countries where rare qualities of stone have lieeu discovered. The group ing of these specimens has been no small labor.— Chicago Herald. #»%*• NOTICK OF FINAL ENTRY. Land Office at Helena, M.
