The Alameda has become a Brand bouleiard. -with a garden running through the center and driveways on ci-h side The Cousino park, the gift oi the millionaire family that owns the coal mines, has sprung up on one side of the city and a forest park haa been created, skirting both of the banks of Mapocho river. The Qulnta Normal has been greatly Improved and Santa Lucia, the table mountain that rises straight up oat of the heart of ihe cm. has developed into a. creation mo-e wonderful than the Hanging Gar dens of Babvlon.

It is a vast expanse of ,-iav roofs, cut here and there by wide streets that cross one another at right inirlos In its center is the Plana des A -ma' on which stand the cathedral. the citv hall and other great build-i-isi and a little further over taking -,i, ..-.. i hA ("hilAan cant- up a wiiuic auo.- - tol or house of congress, one or the The capitol building is surrounded by gardens filled with tropical trees.

But let us go down from Santa T.ucia and take a ride through the city. There are plenty of street ears with women conductors, who will give us a seat on the roof for 5 or cents, or we can get an automobile Quite as cheap as in am town in North Amer ica e choose the motor ear. and fly this i and that through the town How big the houses are and how low The older ones cover acres and but few of them have more Jha,n Jwo stories They are made of brick, plas tered with stucco and painted in the brightest of colors. When a Woman Proposes By'DOROTHY DK IV a recent article I expressed the opinion that it would make enor mously for the happiness and well being of the world for woman to have a right to select her mate and to have the same privilege of popping the question that men enloy. I have received many letters on the subject, two of which bring up novel and interesting points. One man who heartily agrees with m point of view thinks that changed economic conditions make it highly desirable for women to take the In itiative in love making In many cases. He points out that a poor young man making a small salary lacks the nerve to ask a woman to share the hardships of his lor, although she toight be perfectly willing to do so, or she might be able by adding her own income to his to supply the finan cial backing that is necessary to make anv marriage a success. Romeo, for instance, couldn't say: "Juliet. I love you. but I only get JS6 & week, and we can't get married on that, but vou also get $25 a week. and on that 350 we could get married and be happy as the day is long" On the other hand. Juliet could make such a proposition to Romeo, and it would be a proof of devotion strong enough to draw money on at the bank. Likewise, if convention gave woman th; right to pick out the man she v. anted to spend the next 30 or 40 - cars with and ask him to be her hus band, it would do more than anything else to ameliorate the hard matrimo nial lot of the poor little rich girl. The reason that divorces are so common among millionaires is because a ".ery rich girl seldom gets a chance at mar rvlncr a real man. The worth while men are so afraid of being thought fortune hunters that he keep away and the unfortunate heiress becomes the prey of some bankrupt aristocrat, or brainless fop in her own set. The Rich Girl's Chance. Rich girls would marry Intelligent, wide awake, hustling poor men just as often as rich men marry pretty, bright, poor girls if they had the priv ilege of looking about them and picking and choosing as their broth ers have. As a matter of fact, one of the happiest marriages I ever knew was one in which a very rich girl did usurp the prerogative of a queen and ifk a poor man to marrv her He ws glad enough to do it, but his pride wouil have kept him from ever mak i"g the firt move r ther corerspondent, also a man, crjc s to women proposing on the grj-d fiat it wuula 0Vs".cie cer and - .l- , .. if tti citv the ir- c jn toe nest Mt.ui . ..- , .

Other of the residences are like Ital ian palaces, and not a few have each cost S100.ee and upward. ivearly ever great house has some legend connect ed with it. There is a magnificent one on the Alameda whose plans were drawn in Paris and sent out to the builders. In some war they got the olans mixed and put the back of the hoase to the street, and so it remains. More More Modern ovt. I find a great difference In the stores of Santiago over those xhat I saw here aboTt ulears ago. At. that time th-r. was no attempt at display. The prices were not marked on the gooda, and nearly all dealing was a matter of bar gain and sale. Now every large store has its plate glass windows and the price marks are changed from day to This revolution was caused about four years ago by the inauguration cf a department store. This was a branch of a big Buenos Ayres establishment. It old goods at fixed prices and had ex pert window dreseers who changed the display every nght The peoiple took to It and they forsook the old "tores in such numbers that many of them falla. Todar a new class of bssineas estao llehment Is going up. The buildings are of several stories, with a more regular sky line than that of our American cities. They are more like the shops el Germany and France than those of North America, and. indeed, in many respects the town is a miniature Pans. The street scenes of Santiago are a. combination of the oW and the now. You still see the donkeys and mules carrying their panniers of vegetables and fruits about from door to door Jfou still see horses close to the sidewalks hobbled by rope around their front legs, apd the oxcart still creaks its way through the town At the same time there are cabs and automobiles every where The street cars have great nu.ii bers on them indicating their routes and there are motor ears that carry the heavier merchandise and all kinds of building materials. m.l rocfnntn An. TaitAlnCa The peoplo have changed and the characteristic costumes of the past are tramped upon bv the heels of the tfrs eut There are Parii bonnets and slit skirts everywhere, and also women, and girls clad in black with mantas or black shawls covering their beads, necks and shoulders, so that only the faces show out of the Mack. This cos tume used to be eommen with the rich and poor. It is now dying, out among those who can afford the more costly modern clothing, and the rich and fash ionable now confine its use almost al together for going to church. The raanta Is often used for shopping during the morning, the better clothes being reserved for the promenade be tween S and 7 in the afternoon, the hours ben ever one goes along the chief business streets to see and be seen. The roanta has the advantage that It can be thrown on quickly, end also that it hides any slovenly dress ing beneath i rvot n Cheap City. Santiago is not a cheap cltj in which to live It is a town of the verj rich and the verv poor Manv of the citi zens own large estates out in the coun try and live at the capital, -where they have magnificent houses and entertain In grand style The city has a munici pal theater subsidized by the govtrn ment This gives --a season of Italian opera which lasts" of 80 nights. The companies are brought from Italy and nearly everv person of prominence has his own box that cost 3400 w see m gold. On such fashionable occasions full dress is always worn and the wom en are resplendent wi.h diamonds. The men keep their heads bare during the acting and as soon as the curtain falls every man puts on his hat. lie may stand np Jn his seat and sweep the house with his ooera class. There is a ' great deal of visiting among the friends in ine poxes aunng me miermissiins and the opera is more of a social occa sion than a musical one. Have Fine Races. Another social feature is the races, which are usually held upon Sundays. Santiago has one of the finest race tracks ef the world. It Is outside the citv on a plain surrounded by moun tains which rise up against the horizon like walls of snow. Above these white walls Is streached a sky of the bluest blue, and in winter, when the best races take place, the weather is as mild as June in Virginia. The race track Is owned by the Club Hipico de Santiago. This club has done much to improve the breeding of horses in Chile and has made the Chilean ho-se one of the best in the world. The Chilean horse Is a cross between the Flammand and the Arabian horse brought here by the Spanish conquer- give a man the rlcht to Insult her. He sajs that when a man offers mar riage to a woman it is an honor to her, because he undertakes to support her, but that if a woman proposed mar riage to a man she would merely be offering him herself. This objection seems to me rather far fetched. To begin with, no man ' supports his wife. The 'woman who runs the domestic machinery of a. home, whether It be managing a big establishment or doing the sewing cooking and scrubbing for a family with her own hands, is self-supporting and earns her own board and keep If any woman in the world does. Just in actual material service that has a market value the wife Is quits with her husband She gives him value re ceived for her food and clothes. Moreover there is not one man In a million who looks upon matrimony from the sordidly materialistic stand point. When he thinks of marriage he thinks of it in its spiritual essence, and when he dreams of a wife his vision is of her bringing to him a limitless devotion, a loyalty that never fails. He sees her standing by him through thick and thin, watching with a love that finds Its finest happiness in service. Too Precious for Msney. "What a woman brings to marriage Is something so precious tiut no money can pay for it, and that Is what even normal minded man sees in it. and there would be small danger of any one ever committing the sacrilege of re jecting the offer of this sacred thing with ribald Insult. If it did happen, the woman could only thank her guardian angel on her knees for hav ing saved her from such a brute After all. the whole proposition goes back to the one contention that mar riage Is the most Important thing in life to both men and women, and that they should have an equal right to se lect their mates, and that as conven tions now obtain women suffer a great handicap In being denlijd this privilege. Also that It would be both more dig nified and modest for a woman to be able to come squarely out and pop the question to a man she wanted to marry than it Is for her to have to try by various and sundry devices of manner and dress to attract his notice and in veigle him into asking her to marry him Men shouldn't object to the Innova tion It would all be to their advan tage Everv eligible man knows that he is pursued bv women who want to n arr him and he d have a much bet ter chirce to es ipe if thv rime out into the open msieid of lawnq traps for hitr into which he is liable to stum ble at an minute. ors. which through the temperate cli mate and the cold snow has grown into what is an entirely new tpe. It has great stating qualities, with an ext-a-ordinary courage and spirit. Like the Arabian horse, it eats but little, and it has all the endurance of the Arab and the strength of the Flammand. Racrn Help thnrlt. A part of the race track receipts and also the lotter receipts of Chile are given to charity The charities are un der an organization known as '.be Junto de Beneficencia. which is one of the richest institutions of Chile. It gets its income not only from private charity, but also from iu own proper ties and from funds donated by the state. It has 97 boards of manageme.it, and altogether 122 charitable institu tions. Here In Santiago it has a nome for children- that accommodates 1000 Inmates and also a children s eating house that supplies meals at regular hours to poor mothers and children to the number of 1000 dolly. It has orphan asylums, associations for giving cheap homes to working people, tuberculosis hospitals and foundling aalums. Cemetery a Beautiful Spot. Under the care of the Junta de Bene ficencia is the cemetery o( Santiago, which is one of the most beautiful of the world. It was founded by Gen. O'HIggins. when he was presiaent of the republic along about the time that John Quincy Adams was in the vhite house. Before that the Catholic i had their own cemetery and there was no place for the poor nor for the heretics. Gen. O'liiggins believed that dsath "makes all men of one sise' and he es tablished this great burial ground. The cemetert is an enormous enclos ure, filled with old o press trees that extend for 75 to 10 feet above the paved sidewalks and courts. It Is a real citv of the dead, with many vaults and monuments, the coffins being stored away above the ground in houses of marble, granite or sandstone One of the finest monuments Is the bronie figure of s woman who stands on a pedestal with her arms out stretched toward heaven. This is to com memorate the 2000 women who we-e burned to death when the church of the Jesuits took fire and was completely destroyed. That was in December. 186:. Santiago had then no fire bri gade and the inmates crowded to the ooors which opened inward and forced them shut so that they could not get out. One of the men who did the most to save the women was the American minister, a man named Wilson. He re ceived a testimonial from the city for his courage and Is still remembered there. Rronzc IM-nlre of Christ. Another striking monument of this cemetery is a bronse figure of Christ. It stand right In the cente of the city of the dead, with the avenifes radiating from the four sides of the rock pedestal upon which the Christ stands. The roek represents Calvarv The figure is more than life she, and It is wonderfully effective and impressive It is the finest monument I have ever seen in any cemeter. Santiago is a citv of mam churches and scnoois. Full religious tolerance is granted and the Protestants hav e their missions and churches and schools In different parts of the republic Roman Catholicism is the state religion and the church receives a large subsidy from the government. The most of the people are Catholics, and that church is extraordinarv ly rich. It owns In Santiago alone property to the amount of 31o0.000.000 in gold It has flora' of the best business blocks, 2nd tl whole of one side of the plaxa. which is th center of the business sec tion, belongs to it. It has thousanls of rented houses and acres of stores. It owns haciendas outside the city npon which wines and other products a. e manufactured and offered for sale. Nearly all of the church property Is controled b the arcmshop, although some of it is held by the different churcn organizations, male and female. The Carmelite nuns of this dty are said to b.- the richest body of women In the world. Han liscellent e-rr.paner-i. The Chile of today has excellent newspapers It has altogether about 70 dailies and more than 100 weeklies and semi-weeklies. There are a hun dred different periodicals issued here In Santiago, the chief of which is the Mercuric. This has editions for both the capital and for Valparaiso, and it is published both morning and evening Like the New York Herald, its evening edition is printed in pink. It has also a big Sunday issue including features simlliar to those of our metropolitlan dailies. The paper has fine offices In San tiago, with a counting room that looks more like the rotunda of a cathedral than the ordinary place for transacting such business. It belongs to Don Au gusta Edwards, one of the rishest men of Chile, and at present minister from this country to Great Britain. "DESPICABLE HUNS," SAYS LADY RANDOLPH Lady Randolph Churchill, who in an address at a Red Orons meeting in Lon don described the Germans as violators of the flag of truce and "despicable Huns." "They have committed treacherous acta under cover of the white flag," she said, "and have- killed persons wearing the Red Cross.
