Mama. s FIXE JOB PRINTING woog-'s nv muou, tntat LXXEL Here I quote an incident verbatim as described by Geo. W. Kendall: "It was at Alburquerque that I saw a perfect specimen of female loveli ness. The girl was poor, being dressed only in a chemise and coarse woolen petticoat; yet there was an air of grace, a charm about her that neither birth nor fortune can bestow, She was standing upon a mud wall the taper fingers of her right hand supporting a large pumpkin upon her head, while her left was gracefully resting upon her hip. Her dark, full and lustrous eyes, overarched with brows of pecilled regularity, and fringed with lashes of long and silken texture," beamed upon us full of tenderness and pity, while an un bidden tear of sorrow at our misfor tunes was coursing down a cheek of the purest and richest olive. Her beautifully-curvod lips, half opened as if in pity and astonishment at a scene so uncommon, disclosed teeth of Dearlv. dazzling whiteness. Inno- AV er w cence and the best feelings of our nature were playing in every linea ment of that lovely face, and ever and anon as some of us more unfor tunate than the rest would limp, haltin&r bv. again her tears would gush from their fountains, and illum ine a countenance of purity. If 'Crystal tears from pity's eye Are the stars in heaven high,' some of them fell that day from the poor village girl, drawn from their firmament to lighten the sorrows of those upon whom misfortune had laid her heavy hand. She could not have been more than fifteen; yet her loose and flowing dress, but half conceal ing a bust of surpassing beauty and and loveliness, plainly disclosed that she was just entering womanhood. Her figure was faultless, and even the chisel of Praxiteles himself never modeled ankles of such mire and classic elegance. "As the long and straggling hne of prisoners passed the spot upon which this lovely form was standing, sore and worn down by long marches, and want of food and sleep, her rare beauty drew the eyes of all towards her. and exclamations of wonder were upon every lip. - She understood not our language, and in the artless simrjlicitv of her nature, knew not er that her singular loveliness, com bined with her display of charms, her unstudied yet graceful attitude and scanty dress, were tbe theme of almost universal admiration. "She beckoned to a youth among the prisoners, a German lad but little older than herself, and presented him the pumpkin with infinite delicacy and grace; and as she did it, the ex clamation pobrecito (poor fellow) waa heard gently falling from her lips in tones of softest pity. The fairest flowers are often est found in obscuri ty. I assert that the prettiest girl I ever saw was selling woolen stockings, lvd"ard 1 at twenty-five cents a pair, at Holmes' the eaee af Beetes- n r 1 t. Tk- i .:t. rH"T.!. in beauty waa standing in berbaiw 7Z?-?nlTrZr ' feet upon a mU(WnJl in Alburqnerque, lZZLtuZ?. I ew Mexico, with a pumpkin on her neiiaaa deatnty, ar Ka' W'.mm.mm w www w. kaawtaatta I Pevtlf the journey through life surpassingly beautiful, faoes that leave ft deep and lasting impression on the beholders. and bora was one cf them. Among the crowds of beauty her Image will stand out in bold relief, and not one of those who saw her on the day we passed through Alburquerque will ever forget her." The writer of this was the happy recipient of that pumpkin, presented by that kind and beautiful girl. But I was so wearied, broken down and hungrv that I did not notice her beauty, and the whole oircumstanoe would have escaped my memory, did I not recollect that I earned that pumpkin till I got tired, threw it on the ground to burst it, then with my hands scraped out the seeds and fi bers, and eat it ravenously. Now, I do not flatter myself that because that beauty presented me with the pumpkin, that I waa the handsomest youth of our crowd, no but I was perhaps a picture of abjoct misery and. suffering, so callous to suffering that death had no terror to me, nor could I have shed ft tear for my own or companions suflerings. If I dreamed at all, it was of beg ging for food, or a covering to keep my shivering limbs warm, my hips being nearly bare of flesh, hurt me after a night's rest on the hard cold ground. If that good, kind girl was alive to-day, as well as some other good, kind women, I would be happy to repay them bountifully for past kind ness and sympathy, but, alas! I would not know where to find them. I am myself marching fast on to the grave, all my benefactors may be dead, but they still live in my heart, and I pray God that He may remard them for their charity. t' s- i "I lingered to tales Ust look at the 'Leaatifol riii. and mhea 1 tarsed from the spot I could not but regret ar nssjsne af . k a i . uat Ua ot 01 one so Buna ierua rwl awn faJ lka.1 .! ia anrJi a There are face. Men is oar J In Favor of a Protective Tariff. We give place to the following anti-democratic tariff article. Ed. Fbek Pkess. Blanco, June 3d, 1884. EditobFbeb Paxss: If you find the following communication worthy of a place in your columns please in sert Day is breaking upon the Sun ny South, Capitalists and business men are waiting up to a sense 01 their interests, the spirit of diversi fied labor is moving upon tbe minds of southern capitalists, manufactories of various kinds are springing up all over the south. Diversified industry is a death knell to Democracy, a well distributed number of factories throughout the south would silence the free trade batteries of Democracy forever' i in a few years more the great waterfalls of -our silvery streams will send out the music of millions of pindles, the products of our farmers will find a rich market at their doors, lands throughout the country will be enhanced fifty per cent, wages of all kinds will be high, not pauper, goods will be cheap on account of compe tition. Every factory built is a nail driven into the vitals of Democracy. Protect American industry by laying duty on imports, bo aaiuBtea as w give her the ability to compete with foreign nauper labor, and the day is not distant when twenty millions more spindles will be added to our already thirty millions. Then tbe working class can nna employment at remunerative prices, goods will be heap on account ol competition, cot ton planters, wool growers and nemp raisers will have ft market at their doors. On the other hand, raise the tariff and millions of sleeping spindles in free trade England will aaaa.ej 'it wake up and skip tne ocean wiui pauper labor, then American indns trv will be a thing of the past, mil lions of people will be thrown out of employment to become paupers and beggars. Forbid that the American people would ever suffer proud America to experience such ft calami ty. No one can doubt but that it has been the protective tariff that has sustained and built up this nation until she eclipses the nations of the earth. Contrast the difference be tween free trade England and Amer ica, not only England but the) nations of the civilized world. It has been said and cannot be successfully con tradicted, that the very trade repor ts in our commercial papers, the dis patches of every day, announce the fact that depreesion exists ail over the world, unparalleled, vairuy greater than with n. The metal indaatries of England are no better off. Scores of fomacedj in Wales are blown out, waiting customers for their iron. Tbe silk indmtries of free trade England are diMrpearing ; bcr industries' are waning; ber operatives ere very haod. exposition at New Orleans will awak en capital to that extent tnat lactones will loom tip ail over tbe EJoutn, di versified industries will be carried on extensively, and woe) then to free trade Democracy. R" The New Orleans Exposition. The following facts are developed in tne report of the committee on appropriations upon the bill providing for the world's industrial cotton centennial exposition to be held at New Orleans, December 1st, 1884. "Substantial and commodious buildings have been erected. The main building is the largest ever reared in the world. It is one fourth of ft mile long and one fifth of ft mile wide. Utner buildings contain 1,700, 000 square feet Yet even now.eight months before thegates are Ito open, nearly 2.000,000 feet hare been applied for.. Individual exhibitors alone have 200,000 square feet, which is more than was occupied by mom dual exhibitors at the centennial Philadelphia. Every state and terri tory of the Union and fourteen nations have applied for space. The world in miniature will be there and all tho indications are a more national and greater international display will be made than at the wonderful exhibition at Philadelphia in 1876. The vast demands made for space, tbe cordial acceptance by so many foreign nations of invitations sent by the president, and the inability of the city of iNew urieans and cotton planters association and the state of Louisiana to furnish tho requisite means to accommodate the vast proportions that the exposition is assuming, induced the board of management to apply to congress for such aid in the shape of ft loan as was extended to Philadelphia in 1876 but not so groat in amount Congress loaned Philadelphia 915,000,000, The board of management of the world's industrial and cotton centen nial exposition are asJang only for ll,ouu,oou. The bill nas been so amended as to guard the government from the possibility of loss. "The object of the exposition is one of universal interest it is certain that Mexico and Central and South America will be present and make a grand display of their vast resources. Some of the younger states and territories and some of the older states who were too muoh crippled in 1876 to go to Philadelphia will be at New Orleans to show the triumphs of peace. Not a state, not a territory will be absent The Indian territory will make a credita ble exhibit Provisions will be made for the display of the industrial and educational advancement of the colored race. Even far off Persia, Japan, China and Turkey are coming." Temperance Reform. Indianapolis annul. By request of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, the Bev. A. Marine preached a sermon last night at Central Avenue M. . church on "the duty of the christian citizen as it relates to the temperance reform." He took for his text Matthew xxii. 21 1 "Bender unto Caesar the things which are Ceesars, and unto Uod the things that are God's," which ho said plainly meant that man must do his full duty as ft citizen and as a christian. Coming to the subject of the dis course, and speaking of the duty of every citizen to ally himself lor or against the cause of temperance reform, he said : Ignorance of this issue is willful, and therefore culpable, neutrality is cowardice, stupidity is pititable. No intelligent man can open bis eyes to the attitude and his ears to the menace of this great organized whisky ioe witnouc oeing convinced ina. ue is the greatest enemy of our christian civilization. I claim that he is anti American. He strikes at puritanism. He sneers at Christianity. He defies law and public sentiment He would subvert the ends of our government by substituting license for law, and bbertinism for liberty, under the specious plea for "personal liberty He is, in my judgement to test our government fts it has never been tried before. At this hour we con front foe that is entrenched in every hamlet, town, and city of this republic, foe that marshais to bis upport, ignorance, prejudice, pas sion, lust, immense pecuniary re sources, high social influences. He is thoroughly organized and com pletely drilled. He is haughty, in solent, defiant, and Satanic Now in the face of this foe what is datyf It seems to me that this is no time to sing peans over our former vie toriee, or to be contending over tbe spoils of our former eonqoesta. It occurs to me that the best way to re tain and keep our laurels bright by grappling as bravely and rjavtn- otically with the foe of to day as we have with the foes or tbe pv And it is this moral courage that now nllring to the standard of liberty imder lew, and wherever it inking ! raHie there will be victory aad kljt ia nnflV-i-inir from ' plorv. and whoever rallies with it nation are fully aroused King Alcohol will bite the dust Bat what are the political parties going to do about this question f It remains to be seen. What are the legal voters of the temperance cause to dof For one, I can not vote with any party that espouses the cause of the rumseller. Neither can I vote for man in any party who is engaged in the business or that is friendly to it As christian citizen I will not be dictated to, directly nor indirectly, as to how I shall vote by the social, commercial, or political interests of the rani' riwer of this nation. Furthermore, stand committed to the cause of prohibition and total abstinence. . If this cause goes down, I for one am ready to go down with it ' If it goes np I shall rejoice with exoeedisg great joy. A religion that should omit to say its best word and do Its best work on behalf of the temperance reform is, to say the least of it, seri ously defective. No man can oast himself into the Christian system, and profess to be a Christian, and at the same time aid and abet this most prolifio source of all crime. The "times of such ignorance God winked at, but now He eommandetb. all men everywhere to repent An Outline of Exhibits by the (krone men i. The following is an outline of the exhibits by the several, executive departments of the government at the world's exposition at New Or eans . Department of state Samples of cottons, wool and other fibers, and fabrics made from thorn in all parts of the world. The salient feature of this department will be its illustration of the peaceful and economical work of the diplomatic and consular service. The treasury department will exhibit the work: of its bureaus on an extensive scale. The war department will show.. models illustrating the various work of the engineer bureau of ordnance. , The bureau exhibit will include every variety of artillery and small arms from those in use before the revolu tion to the latest improvement of the present day. The manufacture of guns and metallic cartridges will be illustrated by machinoryin operation. The navv department will exhibit every variety of ordnanoe and small arms used in the service, and those ; that have been superseded. . Tbe post office department will put a handsomely equipped office in practical operation at the exposition, and will exhibit ft postal railway ear , and all appliances of the mail sorvioe. t will also have machinery in motion : making envelopes and stamps. The department of the interior will , exhibit a variety of objects collected by agents of the Indian bureau illustrative of tho aboriginal life and . cuctoms and general progress of the red man from the barbarous age to ward civilization. The patent office display will be , of groups of models taken from its cases, showing the regulur advances in steam engineering, in cotton spin ning and in other industries due to the ingenuity of American inventors. The exhibit of geological survey will comprise models of the Grand canvon, Col., of the Tosemite valley, Yellowstone national park plans, the Corns tock and other noted American . mines and mining districts, and models of great lakes. ' The department of agriculture will make an exhaustive exhibit of insects destruc tive to vegetation,and with the . collection all devices for the preven tion of their ravages besides. There will also be interesting ex hibits by the bureau of ichthyology, bureau of education, department of i'ustioe and Smithsonian institution. The selection from tbe latter will include the famous fish collection. The botanical and chemical display will be very fine. A Hew Temptatloa te laUnperasee. - A fact worthy the consideration of parents and others to whom the care of children is committed is thus em phasized by the Independent re cently t The young in recent years have become exposed to new temptation to intemperance through the use of confectionery. It is known, but not as generally as it ihould be, that wine and whiskey are used in the mann- factors of certain kinds of eonfection- ery. The candy known aa-liocx and Rye" drops is flavored with so called "essence of whiskey," or fusel oO. A Brooklyn chemist recently examined a sample and found the fusel oil to enter into it largely.
