THE llLNDo 0 WIDOW. For the Democrat-Star. In chikihood I oiit'U turned to Ilie picture of tbe Hindoo widow, iiiioluting beist-It uion tbe funeral pyre of ber husband, aud my ro mantic fancy conjured it beautiful picture ot bii'uau love nd devotion. Iu ituaginutioii I 8tood on tho banks of tlio Gauges, and nbove its inur-met- beard the passionate words of two who were entering into the holy bonds of imitriiBony. I be held ibem glide down tbe roseate path of life lo tbe hint awtnl scene, the funeral pyie. With what ml miration I leyaided the beautiful widow, who wishing no other con solation, mounted tho ftineial pyre and olleied herself a willing sacri lice on the niter of love. I olten produced the case to support tbe theory, that 'Move is stronger than death 1' One cheerless, ini.-dy afternoon a lew; weeks ago, I was perusing the paws of faded, worm-eaten book, to w hile away the tedious mo ments, entitled, "Customs and Man ners of Jinny Nation." There I found an essay that explained the o.iin of i he cruel Hindoo custom. It seems that iu oaily tiuies, Uimloo husbands were taken off mysterious ly ; it was (bought by poison, und wives suspected. A leiuedy was sought, and a wise ohl husband prompted by a desire to prolong Lis own Iife,snggesled a 1 wo fold ore mil lion. Could human cunning' have de vised a be.tier plan I A woman must have been possessed ot great courage to have uudeitaken marriage with the prospect of being roasted alive. 1 imagiue that medicine become ber constant study, livery means to prolong husbands' lives waslsonght. How safe and cheerful must have been tho feeling of old maids iu those troublesome times. Human horoism and devotion, when silted, may usually be reduced to selfish ness.

Great chauges are taking place in Florida and a vast amount of Northern capital has been invested there within a few years, the es pecial attention of Northern men being directed to transportation facilities. How to 6borteu (he route for ships between New Or leans and New York aud Liverpool some 500 miles by cutting off the distance around the great peninsula is a problem now under considera tion, and as the number of coasters arriving at this port from Southern ports during 1884 was 3,643, or nearly two thirds ns great as the number ot foreign arrivals, tbe achievement of Hie desired result would benefit au immense traffic. Cap!. Ends lias ordered a survey trotn a point two miles below Jack sonville to Head mau's Bay, a short distance bortbward from Cedar Keys, bis project beitijr tbe construc tion of 120 miles of railway for tbe tratisportion of ships across Florida between the Atlantic aud ibo Gulf. As tbe rival ecbeme that of a ca nal large enough to permit tbe pas sage ot two first-class ship woold require au espenditnre ot $46,000, 000, there is au opportuuity for tbe man who opened the mouth of the Mississippi to show whether be cau save jiillious, aud at tbe same time provide better transit, by the con struction of a sb'P railway. It is ceitaiu that sncressiti tbe Florida enterprise would ensure tbe con struction of his Tebauntepea ship railway, but reports from Mexico indicate that be may hope to re verse tbe order or achieve tbe gi gantic projects simultaneously, opening a shorter cut not only at ross Florida to the Gulf, but also from the Gnlf across Tehauutepee to tbe Pacific Ocean.

It needless to say fortune was against him. lie attracts attention even uow in the crowds hurrying to and fro along our busy streets. Ho seems to stantl apart from his fellows, and they unconsciously shun him. There is uothiug vicious in bis countenance. He is simply a bent and broken old man, with a strain ed, iuteuse look, the look of a bunt ed fugitive in a strange land. He is lingering ou the border line be tween the present and the past, just ready to flutter and flit. This carpetbagger has a stirring history. At the close ot the civil war be laid aside bis blue uniform and Bwotd, and with a number ot congenial comrades went to work to shape tbe destination of the uew South. From bis point of view the Southern States were conquered provinces and the inhabitants defeated rebels. Trained in tbe uarrow-miiided school of the Puritans, whose siugle object iu life is to maintain their rights and prevent everybody else from doing the same, bo felt that it was part of the conquerors mission to force ihe civilisation ot New En"lund upon tbe South. Indus trious, temperate,, serious minded, it never occurred to him that ho was a crunk instead ot a reformer. Selfish ambition aud tho greed of gfiin entered more largely into bis schemes than be was willing to ae knowledge. Ho expected to profit by the results of tho social and po litical levolutiotr iu which be was engaged ; Englishmen rose to wealth und power in Irelaud and India; why, then, should not the venturous Yankee rule the unfort unate descendants of tbe Cavaliers, niake their laws and divide their broad acres f The carpetbagger aud his friends soon made their purpose known, and ualurally the Southern whites stood aloof. They could not have done otherwise. The strangers pro ceeded to organize iuorance against intelligence, to foment race tiouble, fo tear down tbe social aud political fabiic. It was evident that they intended Ui put the bot tom rail on top. As they weut along they stripped the people of everything. They stole votes, stole counties, stole Stales aud stole rail roads. They emptied State treas uries aud piled up a mountain load of debt upon future generations. Dressed iu a little brief authority, they made their victims feel tho in solence of ofuce. There could be but one ending to such a travesty on government. Acouvulsiou rent the laud, and when it was over the carpetbaggers were in jail, dodging requisitions in Northern SUtes, or iu close retirement at borne. From bis standpoint the carpet bagger was au honest reformer. He took otber people's property, but bo was foraging on the enemy. It took money to build .up a new civilization and liepnblicau States, und it was a bri'liant idea to make tbe rebels toot tbe bill. It was bis view of it.

One alternoon we went a most in teresting expedition up the river aud then turned aside into one of tho mauy creeks, to tbe village of Faa tee, and thence onward i:i search of the great duck-barcbing establishments, where multitndin ous eggs are artificially hatched. The first we came to was closed, but the boatm.in told us of another further o:i, so we lauded and walk ed along narrow ridges between large flooded fields fu which lotus and water chestuuts are grow n tor tbesiikpot their edible roots. IJotb are nice w hen cooked, but tbe col lecting of these in this deep mud must be truly detestable for the poor women engaged in it. Pass ing by amaziug beaps ot old egg shells (lor which eveu the Chinese seem to have as yet toiiud no use; we reached the hatching house, in w hich many thousauds of eggs aro being gradually warmed iu great baskets filled up with heated chuff, and placed on shelves of very open basket work, which are arranged iu tiers ull around tbe walls, w bile on the ground are placed earthen ware stoves full of burning charcoal. Here the eggs are kept tor a whole day ami night, tbe positiou of tho basket with reference to the stoves being continually changed by at tendants who reserve their apparel for use in a cooler atmosphere. After this preliminary heating tint eggs aro removed to other baskets in another heated room, to which they are dexterously carried in cloths, each containing about fifty cuts. No one but a neat banded Cliiiiani'tn could carry such a bur den without a breakage ! Here tin eggs remain for about a ton night, each egg being frequently moved from pi ice to place to equalize their share of he-.itiug After lbi they are taken to a third room, where they ate spread over w ide shelves and covered with sheets of thick, warm eoilon ; and at tbe end ot an other fortnight, hundreds of little ducklings .Miutiltnticously break: their (-hells, and by eveniug per haps a couplu of thousand fluffy lit I le beauties lire launched in:o lile and ate forthwith fed with rice wa ter. Duck farmers (who know pre cisely when each great batching is due) are iu attendance to buy so many huudreJs of these pretty in fauis, whom they at once carry off to their respective farms, where there are already au immense num ber of ducks and geese of different ages, all in separate lots. Tho geese, by tbe way, aro not batched artitieially, owing to the thickness of their shells, consequently they are n t so very numerous as ducks. Still, fJ u-ks numbeiiug'JiOO are 800 are reareil, and are provided with wattle slit lies on which to roost, as lamp ground is considered injuri ous to t lie young birds. A very large goose market is held every monii ig iu Cau ton, wbicb is sup plied by geese boats, each ot which biiugM 200 or 300 birds. As to tlie baby ducks, they are fed ou boiled rice, ami alter a w hile are promoted bran, maggots and other delicacies, till the day comes when the owners ot tbe duck boats come to purchase the ball-grown birds and commence the process of letting them fatten tbenwelves, as aforesaid. This con tinues till they are ready for tbe maiket timr are either sold for im mediate consumption, or bought wholesale by" the provision dealers, who split, salt and then dry then, in tbe sun. vTbe heart, gizzard and entrails are also dried and sold sep arately, and the bills, tongues and! feet are pickled iu brine.
