Teo Old time Amsname*t of Cwuream brakl3a-:. e itlng Sport. Those who are acquainted with the cuse toms of old Spanish towns in 'alifornia know what eL'csar-nes are, and are prob ably fami!iar with the ways of using them and the additional enjoyment they lead to all dance sa here they are turd. To inch of our readers who are nat well posted in t!:e matter we will attempt to give a few words of explanation. The origin of the custom of eraraone breaking is protably surrounded with as impenetrable mystery as the identity of the ,Man in the Iron Mask." It was brought to California by the early Span ish families from Mexico. anti up to with in a few years past it was an attractive feature of every dance given during a certain portion of the year. Cascarone season begins. according to custom, at 12 o'clock Christmas night and lasts till Ash Wednesday. and any one of our old citi zens can tell of the grand times at casca rone balls in the "flush days" when the custom was at its height. Dances were of almost nightly occurrence then, and hundrs.lo of dozens of casearonts were broken in an evening, and many a poor family derivad a handsome income from the mannufature and sale of cascarones. They sold a:t $1 a dozen in the early part of the evening, and in the "'wee ma' hours," when the commodity became scarce, an ounce of golddust has been known to be given for a single dowzn. Many interesting stories could be told of the eascarone balls of the past, but only one will be mentioned as an in stance of the popularity of this peculiar feature of the balls. On one occtasion. at a ball given at the residence of Don Jose Ahbrego, Pete Serrano, then a iuchaclho, was on hand selling cascarones. A gen tleman approached and asked what he would take for his casearones. -"One dollar a dozen." was the answer. '"How many have you?" was the next inquiry. *"Forty dozen." 'All right, I'll take them." 'aking the basket, he started down the hall. but had not taken a dozen steps when he was surroulnded by a number of young ladies, and in a moment all hands were diving into the basket., coming out with donuhlelandsful and crushing them on his head, while he manfully strove to return a few of the compliments lie received. In five minutes not one of the forty domen cascarones re mained whole. The modus operandi of casuarone making is very simple, and aboult as follows: Into an empty eggshell -whole, extcpt for an opening in one end just large enough to remove the original contents-is placed about a tea spoonful of finely chopped paper of various bright colors and gold tinsel: then the opening is neatly closed by pasting a piece of colored paper over it. and then the cascarone is all ready for In Mexico, in the good old times, cuando habia mucho oro, gold dust mixed with diamond dut. was often used to till the eggshells at thtr swell fandangoes given by the old grandees. And it is done occasionaly nowadays by some of the wealthy old Dons who wish to do the thing up in style. Other ways of filling the shells was to use finally perfumed powder. and sometimes rare and costly peifumes were used. Very often the lshells were beautifully decorated, and somntimes hand painted. In Monterey, before the decline of the cust, nm. the shells were often oldored in fanciful tdesi;ns like Easter eggs, and at other timer tastefully decortled with different colors of paper. ('hpsid paper and tinsel were usually put in the shells, but on more than one o(' asion gold dollar pieces were ued- one in each shell. S1picid cantrI Vas tioten used, and .I nnitime. I Iwder and I rfum ery. lion. wives religi.nly i h.ve the shlll of all tle eg'gs they use' and put thimn away until Crascarolne a'.L)son come around. In casarone breaking it is not neces. sary that one should be acquainted: in fact, it is a sort of "-mashing" proceeding all through. The act of breaking a ca . carone on another'' head is to be con sidered a compliment by the recipient, who is in honor bound to return it at tlhe first opportunity. The proper way to break them is to crush the shell in the hand over the wprson's head, allowing its contents to fall on the head. In the excitement of the Lunus.ment. however. the shell is more frequcntly broken on the head. regarlless of locality or force usedl. and i.4 oftentimes suggri tive of anything but amiable feeling on the part of the bestower. When the ice fm once broken by some adventurous maiden or Idle.ky man the contagion soon spreads. and in a short time everybody is chasing arou.wl the room, rea!;ing cas carones indiscriminately, and receiving them from all sides. These mock battles usually oc-cur between (l3anIs. Years ago a sort of game was played in the breaking of cascarones. It was an ob. ject-like in the old game of "*tag"--to break the last carcarone on another. The one breaking tle last was allowed the privilege of asking the other every time they met: "lHow are my chickens?" and the other would be expected to give a present for the benefit of the chickens candy, etc., being usually given. This was allowed to be kept up until the next cascarone dance. when the game was all played over. -Monterey (Cal.) Argus. Inventive of Bank N.WN.

Caligula may have been, though his symptoms. as recorded by Suetonius, are rather those of delirium tremens; but the theory which makes of the grand though sinister statesman. Tiberius. who gave the Roman monarchy its final impress. a m.ln of disordmerd mind in the ordinary medi cal sense, will not readily be accepted as cornrt. lie was no more nmad than Philip II. whose private life was much of the same kind. It would, as we read history, he far truer to say that power, when really ab solute, so albsdute that the volidion is executive and the necemity for self restraint is unfelt, produces of itIelf a special mental disease. which is not in sanity, because it would disappear with the power, but has at intervals, like the passion of children, many of its external symptoms and effects. Nero. the artist emperor. who was always seeking the impossible, and whom the early Chris tians believed to be the veritable incarna tion of evil. may be said undoubtedly to have suffered from it: so did one or two of the Italian tyrants of the Rennaissance: and so, in our judgment, though it is a disputable point, did Ivan the Terrible. Power of that sort, though it does not al ways in;ure the minl-for several of the Cawsars and some of the emperors of Delhi weire men of splendid sanity and judgment-when it happens to fall to a manl preIlispjsed by inheritedl tenliency or by drink. or by special solitarianst of nature, ilundobtedly weaken%. the re strainiang force of the will and strength ens inmpuL.e until many of his acts resemble chisely the acts oif madmen.
