PEOrLE WHO EAT CLAY.
A COMMUNITY IN NORTH CARO LINA LIVING ON EARTH. Subsisting- Entirely on Soft Clay Dug from the River Banks When Game is Scarce—A Pale, Cadaverous People of Strange Habits and Dense Ignor ance. Prom the New York World. Solitude. Ashe County, N. C.,Nov. 30. —ln this, the transmont me region of North Carolina, there is a class of people entirely unknown to the outside world. The coun ties compossng the New river plateau, the only part of the state drained by the waters of the Ohio river, are exceedingly rough and mountainous. They are surrounded, subdivided and separated by the Blue Ridge, the Great Smoky, the Rich and Beech mountains. These mountains are covered with a dense growth of pine, oak, chestnut, and the finest timber in America. The country, owing to its inaccessibility and mountainous character, is sparsely set tled along the narrow streams and defiles which debouche from the precipitous moun tains. Here live the “clay-eaters.” Very few people in the middle, northern or western states have ever seen one of this cla s of degraded humanity. Perhaps there is not one out of a thousand persons, who, without the most conclusive evidence, could be brought ;to believe that it was even possible for a human being to exist upon clay or earth. But su<-h is the case w.thout a doubt. A short time since, a cor respondent of the World stopped over night at a small hamlet on the south fork of New river, at the foot of O. e knob. It was in the midst of a wilderness of forest, and a most lonesome spot. On the way hither there were frequently met a peculiarly cad averous, lank, half-alive class of people. That evening before a generous fire of pine after a primitive meal of corn bread, milk and wild honey, with dried venison, the corres pondent remarked to the faost that he had never met people with ■ uefi peculiar physi ognomy and such unu-ual appearance. “Them’s clay-eaters, stranger, and there’s lots uv ’em ’bout this neck o’ the woods,” said the host. “Do you mean to say that such a class of people really exists (” “Well, I don’, know if they ’sistornot, strang-r; but them people eat dirt same’s you do ve. ,’sen, an’ they live onthiscrik, lots uv ’em.” Bail somewhat skeptical, it was arranged with the host to pieceed to-morrow to the “settlement” referred to. After a heart , meul in the moruin-, the laudlord saddled two ho ses and started up the “crik.” Alter riding about two or three miles, the ro id led to a log cabin, the sk.tch of whiCn was on a slip of paper on the saddle. In front of the bouse, on a stump of a failen tree, sat a fair specimen of the lanky, ca laverous people. The acdlord role up to the object, which sat almost immovable on the stump, and said: “Jim, here’s a stranger from the north, I reckn-', who says he doesn’t b’lieve folks kin eet clay.” “Hoo!” said the leadened-visaged speci men. “Them fellers no’th tbi g they no ’bout every think, hut they don’t. Eet clay! ’Course we do, when we kin get nuthiu’ bei ter, an’ that’s m st of the time ii these mountings. Come in, stronger, yu’ro wel km. Jis tr< t into my shakedown an’ see the ole woman an’ the chillun. They’s all uv ’em clay-eeturs. Of course, the yung uus can’t eat clay an’ nuthin’else; t ey's got to git usen to it like us , le folks, fust’” The “shakedown,” as Jim called hi. house, was a primitive log cabin, through the chinks of which the rays of the tun in summer and the cold winds of winter entered and played about at will. In the farthest corners stood two beds, built upon crotched sticks, while upon the wall hung the skins i.f cooos, ’pos unis, muskrats and other fur-bearing animsis. in the other end was a fireplace in a chimney built of sticks and lined with mud. A thin, worn woman, in a faded cotton gown, sat by the side of the fire smoking a pipe, while bv her side stood three tow-beaded children of per haps 9,11 and 13 years of age. The chil dren were clad in nochi g more than a slip of dirty cotton goods, bareheaded and bare footed. “How de, strenger T' said the woman, taking her pipe out of her mouth tem porarily. The children were too backward, having, perhaps, never before seen a stranger from the “No’th,” to make any lepiy to my salutation. "Poll, this hear stranger is from the No’th, an’ he un dou’t b’lieve we uns kin eet clay. Hoo! them fellers nain’t lerned it ail yet, hev they, Poll f Poll signified her and ssent bv momentarily taking her strong-smelling pipe from her mouth and laconically saying “Nary.” “Wai, Jim, tev ye eny ee tin’ clay in the shanty r asked my landlord. “Hevn’t eny heer jess now,” said Jim. “But we kin git some mighty quick. Heer, Jack!” to the 11-year-old oov, “you jess go to the bank an’ git sum eeti.i’ clay.” Jack started lor the “bank,” and the World correspondent followed close behind. About 100 yards from the “shakedown'’ Jack called a halt on the bank of the small stream, where, stooping down, close to the edge of the water, he drew out with his hands a handful of bluish clay. The World correspondent took some of it and examined it. It was a fatty clay, having an oily feeling, and was, probably, a substance, tha chemical compound of which was water, siiica and alarm a, firm and com pact, slightly tinged with the color of iron. It was inodorous, and rather insipid to the taste. Jack returned to the house with the clay, which Jim took in his hands. After wet ting it sufficiently to make it pliable, he pro ceeded to roll, break and manipulate it until he bad worked it into the consistency of soft putty, when ho separated it into boluses of various sizes. Three of the smaller ones, about the size of a common marble, he handed 1 1 Jack and told him to “swallow it an’show the stronger it’s good to eet. ” W ith little or no effort Jack gulped down the boluses, while Jim rolled out and swal lowed three other boluses ab ut twice the size of t ose sw allowed by the boy. “Ye see, strenger, we only eat the eetin’ clay when we uus is hungry. Jess now we uns bev plenty. Thar’s a big ’possum a-hangin’ on the wall outside yet, an’ only las’ night we et a whole ’cuou. Game’- plenty ies’ now, an’ we’ve no call to eat clay. When game gits scarce an’ there’s no corn to git, then we uns jis’ kum down to clay." “How much clay does it take to satisfy a hungry man?” “Wal, strenger, I gen’lly eat a piece big as a hen egg, au’ that lasts mo a couple of days.” “Doesn’t it make you sick to eat all that earth?” “Nary. Why, strenger, my dad afore me et clay, an’ I’ve been usou to it all my life an’ I’ve never been -sink yet.” Afier presenting Jim’s wife with an almost bran-new pipe, which she received with probably the first real evidence of sur prise she ever felt over anything, the party left and rode on up the crock. The next stopping-place was about half a mile above, in fr.rnt of a log cabin of similar conforma tion and general make'up to that of Jim’s. Here were found three full-grown men and three women, all living in tho same cabin and in the only room it afforded. Every one of the occupants bore a eimiarity Physically to the people we had left below, rho long, cadaverous faces, the lack-luster eyes and lank, lean figures, seemed to b ve been turned out of the sum* balf-h uuan molds. When the landlord explained our mission, one of the men, “Lengthy," ss he was called, iuvited the party into tho house, where he prepared before our eyea. as Jim had done, a numb rof balls or boluses of the same character of clay, and every one of toe six people ate a roll or ball about the size of a walnut. “i* gthv,” the eldeet of the three men, Mid that he had eaten clay ever sinco he could remember anything, and that his father and mother before him had lived upon it when t ey were hard run for more nutritious provisions. “Lengthy” replied, in answer to the q lestion as to how long a man can exist upon this clay alone: “Don’t k o’ ’zactly, strenger, but las’ win ter me an’ Bob an’ Sam an’ the wimmin folks ran out ’v pervision, an’ we h and nuth in’ but clay fur ’most three weeks at a stretch.” FEMALE ORDERS. Some of the Most Noted in the World’s . istory. That ladies were among the earliest Knights of the Garter, says the London Queen, is made evident, not ouly by the archives of the order, but by the record of sculptured stone. It is now perfectly cer tain that this fsm us order of knighthood was, as the legend ( f the Countess of Salis bury implies, ins ituted in honor of the fair sex, and that ladies participated in its rights and honors. The queen consort, the wives and wiuows of the knights, received permi siou, by royal sanction, to wear the habit of the Order of the Garter on the feast days of St. Georee; and robes wero annual y given out to them from the royal wardrobe, of the same materia! and color as the sun-oats of the knights, and embroidered like them, with numerous small garters en circled with the n otto: “Honi soit qui mal y pense.” Each lady of the order w owo e on her left arm a garter similar to that of a k ight, was considered a membe , and waB styled Lady of the Society of St. George. Between the time of John of Gaunt and the extinction of the I’lantagenet-, many noble ladies were members of the Order of the Garter. The firs roll ex ant is of the time of Richa and 11. In it figure the ki g’s moti er. Joan Plantagenet “the Fair Maid of Kent,” (ho widow of that mirror of c ivalry and greatest mercenarv soldier in Europe, the Black Prince), and the king’s half-sisters, the Duelies of Brittany and tho Lady Courtenay—“the fairest lady in a,l England,” as Froissa t styles her. It com prises also the Queen of Spain, whose hus band was not a kuigtit of the order, anti the ill-used Countess of Oxford, the Lady Philippa de Conroy, grand daughter of Ed ward 111., whom her husband, De Vere, repudiated, f rno other reason than his wish to marry one Lancerona, a Por; u guese girl—an awkward fact, by the way, for believers in chivalry. In the reign of Richard 11., the tw i daughters of the Duke of Lancaster—Philippa, wife of John, King of Portugal, and < a herii e, wife of Henry. Price of Astui ias—were also Knights of the Garter. Up to this point t'e Garter roll proves no more than that the ladies of the family of the sovereign "ere admitted to the order; but in the succeeding reigus t e limits of knighthood were largely extended. Among the i atnes oc ur those of the Countesses of Buckingham, Pemb oke, Salisbury, Huting ton, Kent, Derby, West noreland, Arundel, Warwick and Richmond; the Ladies Mohun, Le Despeticer, Poyning-, Swynfor , Fitz walter, De Ro-. Waterton and Burnell. The la t lady Knight of the Garter was M rgaret Beau or . Countess of Rienmond, mother of Henry VII. It was not till i early a century after the de th of the defender of the faith that any attempt was made to restore the Knight hood of the Garter to women. The Austrian Order of the Starry C os i owes its origin to Eleanor Gonzaga, widow of the Emperor Ferdinand 11. ihe origin of the order was a miracle. The House of Hapsburg has long asserted that it lias in its possession a small piece of the true cross, and t’e Emperors .. aximiliaii and Fred erick 111. wore that relic about their per sons, enclosed in a cross of gold. After the and ath of the latter, Leopold 111., his uc cessor, presented it to the wid wed empress, daughter of Duke Charles 11. of Mantau, to comfort her in her wid> whood. She kept it very carefully locked in a small box. adorned with crystal and enamel aid cov ered with sii -r. It happened that on the night of Feb. 3, 1668, a fire suddenly broke out in tbe imperial castle at Vienna, just below the apartments of tbe Empress Elea nor. The fire soon readied them, and the empress only escaped with difficulty. On the following day search was made for the relic, and it was discovered among the ruins, fortunately untouched by the confla gration, with the exception of the metal, which was partly melted. The empress was so rejoiced at tbe i cident that she ordered a solemn procession, and resolved to found a female order—not only, as the tatutessay, to comemorate the miraculous event, but also to induce the mem bers to devote then selves thoroughly to the worship of the Holy Cross, and pass their lives in the exer cse of rel gion and works of charity. Pope Clement IY. confirmed the new order by a bull, the Emperor Leopold confirmed the statutes, and the order recevied its name af er tho constellation in the southern hem isphere. It is not difficult to believe that a feminine decoration has undergone several changes of fashion sim e 1668. It now takes the form of a i oval medal, with broad blue enameled edging encompassing the Aus trian eagle, with golden claws, upon which rests a green enameled golden cro-s, m ounted in brown wood. Upon it is, in black letters upon e white ground, the motto of the order, “Salus et gloria.” It is worn on the left side, suspended by a bow of black silk ribbon. The next founded of female orders has a very diffe. ent origin. It was established in 1714 by Czar Peter in honor of Martha Rabe, a Livonian woman, the wile of a Sweedish dragoon, who, after a variety of unedifyitig adventures, induced tho Czar to make h- r Empress of Russia under the name of Catherine L Originally men were received into this order, but at a later period the decoration was strictly confined o ladies. The order is divided into two classes, the number of the Grand Coosses being limited to the prince-ses of the im perial family and twelve noble Indies of the highest Russian aristocracy. This order has 'ithin the past year been conferred on three of our own princesses—the Princess Helena, the Printtoss Loui-o (Marchioness of Lome) and the Princess Beatrice. The Grand Cross, ad' rned with diamonds, is worn across the right shoulder toward the left aide, by a broad p ppy-red ribbon with silver stripes. Ti i ribbon was formerly blue: but souvent femme varie. On tno ribbon is embroidered tho rquiva ent in Russian, “For Love and Fatherland ” The reverse is very curious, showing an eyrie at the top of an old tower, at the foot of which two engles, with serpents in their beaks, ore seen in tbo act of carrying them up ns food for their young. Above ure the words “Equal munia comparin'' in allusion to tho services rendeieil by the young Catherine to tho much older Peter. The costume consists of silver stuff with gold embroidery, and of hat and bow of green velvet. Russia has another decoration for ladies —the Maria Medal, founded in 1828 in mem ory of Maria Feodorowna, by her son, the Emperor Nicholas. It is a decoration “re served solely for ladies of unbl misbed character, lor faithful services,” and is generally conferred on tho directresses of institutions founded by the Empress Maria. The Maria medal has one peculia ity—“the possessors canuot under any cu cuuistances be deprived of it.” The ribbon l- of the same crimson and black stripe as that of the Order of St. Vladimir. Bavaria boasts four female orders. To become a member of the Order of M. Eliza I etb a lady must be a Roman Catholic, and be able to show her sixteen quarter.tigs— the proof ■ f noble descent running through sixteen generations of her own or her hus band’* ancestors. The bodge, a white enam eled cross, w ith a figure of Ht. F.lizaDetti, is worn on the left breast by a blue ribbon with red borders. This ornament o unis responsibilities. No one entitled to it cau appear in public without it, except by a tine of one ducat. Two Bavarian orders are in hem rof St. Ann—one at Munich, and the other at Wurzburg; both partake of a conventional character, and bo. h de mand orthodoxy and the eixteen quartei - ings as qualifications. The Order if Theresa was fou .dad for unmarried noble women, and includes a pension, which ceases with marriage. If, however, the j THE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 15. 1888. damsels marry suitably, according to their rank, they are allow© i to wear the insignia for the future a3 honorary ladies. The badge is a cross, worn by a bow of white watered ribbon, with two sky blue stripes fasteued to the left breast. The costume is adress of bright blue silk. Bavaria’s neigh bor, Wurtemhurg, boasts only one fe aio order. Spain h s the order of Maria L >uisa, which is epicene. The queen nominates the lady members, who are bound to visit once a month one of the hospitals for females, or some other similar institution and also to order mass to be read ii their presence once a year for tho souls of the de parted members! Portugal has an exclu sively feminine order, that of St. Isalv Ua, fo ii ded by the Prince R gent, Don John, in 1801. This order i-limited t > twenty-six ladies—besides princesses of the ro\ al fam ily and of foreign reigning houses —who must be married, or, in default of marriage be of the full age of twenty-six. One of the best-known distinctions for ladies is that of the Order of Louisa of Prussia. It was originallv a decoration for services rendered by women in hospitals and otherwise to the wounded aud sick in the war of 1813 and 1814. DRY GOODS, ETC.
