Tonala, Chiapas, Jan. 1G, 1.897. Dear Mother: I receiyed jour letter of Jan. 31et, yesterday, and the papers, containing account of marriage. Was overjoyed to Ret them. That was the first mail I have received since I left Clifton. Am so glad you have some good authority, descriptive of this coun try, for I am a poor hand to describe a locality or the people. You asked how and where we spent Xmas, I think I told you in Tapanna, in a more recent letter, but think I did not tell you how. We iiud been travelling Z days horseback, and we laid off there to rest. So we did little but rest except for a walk to the neighboring moun tains. New Years day I spent in the saddle. Have ridden more in the last three weeks than 1 have since I was a boy on the firm, and I guess I wns on a horse every day then. Our borsea are very good.one of them n a little too old, but tbey ate fine mountain pack horses. All freighting is done, either by pack mules, or old fashioned ox carte. Every thing is in a very backward state here, but as I think I wrote before, the state of Chiapas has more undeveloped resour ces than any state in Mexico. I will avoid the coast as much as pos sible. Have been along the foot of the mountains all the tiaie. Have never been within six leagues of the Pacific ocean, and have only seen it from bill tops. However, it is quite safe there along this coast until about 'May 1st, wben the rains begin. And by that time we will either be out of this locality al together or working, where we will not be exposed to sun and rain. Some of the engineers connected with the railroad are here, but I dn not think anything will start for a few weeks yet thai is actively. It takes a big company like that 6u lung to get into action. We will stirtout in a day ur two aud 6tay until our supplies run out -about two or three weeks. It is now too hot to do aoythiug in the middle of the day, and it will keep graduully growiag warmer until May or June, when it will remain about the same until late in the fall. This is my third trip to Tonala and I guess we will now move our supplies down from Aurora (La Punta) perman ently. Am waiting for them to come before starting to the mountains. Tonala !b an old place of some seven or eight thousand people. Barracks and custom house are here. It is estimated that 30,000 people have died here in the last thirty years. They bad the cholera here once and I think that is accounta ble for the large figures. Ail kinds of tropical fruits grow here and are very cheap. About the most delicious fruit I haye tasted is the pineapple. It has a favor like fresh strawberries. Every town of any size, such as this, has a plaza or park. Sometimes only a shed where the people can eell and exchange merchandise and produce. The one here is in the form of a circle, 72 feet in diameter, paved with cobblestones. It is surrounded by a brick wall about three feet high. The lower half of the wall on both sides is extended one foot inside and cut so as t form a seat. It has four entrances equally distant But the crowning glory of this market is its roof, which consists of one tree, the foliage of which is very low and covers the entire market 72 feet in diuineler. I don't know the name of the tree, buj it is a bf-auty. The woods are full of beautiful birds and hideous reptiles, and the most hide ous of all is Considered a delicacy among the natives. It is called the Iguana. It is of the lizard tribe, about 1C inches long and looks like a cross between an alligator and a snake. Another highly prized dish is the fle6h of the Armadillo. When travelling through the woods I have often met the natives hunting them, almost entirely naked. In the rural districts the laborers wear nothing but a breeching, If you will look in a Montgomery Wnrd catalogue for a cut of an athletes' suspensory you can form a pretty good idea what they are like, only tbey are much less elaborate here. A peculiar custom here is that of buryiug a man wherever be bappents to meet a violent death. Everywhere one goes through the country, white tombs can be seen. No matter bow wealthy or what the rank, the victim is buried where he falls. The "office are enclosed in brick and a brick tower is raised at the head, and the whole is covered with plaster and cemeted. Nearly all the best biddings are of brick, plastered and painted to resemble atone or marble, and covered with tiles which are half a hollow cylioder, the j lower tier turned with the concave sur face up and the joints broken by in verted ones. The houses of the poor are built of sticks from one to three inches in diameter tied together with vines and tilled in with mud. Roofed either with tiles or thatched. The pleasanteat feature of the country is the music. No one can sing well, but nearly every one can handle some kind of an instrument. The best one, and one that I think is only used in Mexico, has an unspellable name, but is pro nounced something like merindo. It requires four players. It consists of a graduated box, about six feet long and one foot wide at bass end and tapering to about one-half at the other end. Bars are laid across the top and con nected with the sounding box or board below. Each one has two batooB or drum Eticks with which he beats the Dangers of the Grip. The greatest danger from La Grippe is of its resulting in pneumonia. If reasonable care is used, however, and Chamberlain's Cough Remedy taken, all danger will be avoided. Among the tens of thousands who have used this remedy for la grippe, we have yet to learn of a single case having resulted in pneumonia, which shows conclusively that this remedy is a certain preventive of that dread disease. It will effect a permanent cure in less time than any other treatment. The S3 and SO cent sizes for sale by Clark O. Proud. E. E.

Broken Promises. One of the things that has been re ceiving particular attention from the committee ot ways' and means of the house in the preparation of a new tariff bill, to be submitted in the next con gress, is that of a duty upon what is called imported luxuries. It is an in teresting faqt, notice able in the opera tion of the present law, passed in 1891 that the treasury reports show that nearly three times the quantities ot duty-free luxuries wtre imported dur ing the past fiscal year, and under the law of 1894. than came in under the so- called McKinley law ot 1890, aud that the total revenue on dutiable luxuries received during that year was nearly six million less than the. amount col lected from the same class of goods in 1892, under the old law. As an indication of the general tend ency of the two acts referred to, respect ing the importation ot what are called luxuries, or classed as such, it is worth considering that the increase in that class of goods, tree of duty, in 189C oyer 1892, was from 83,000,000 to SC.000.000, and the falling off in, -the revenue from increased importations ot duty free luxuries was from 849,000,000. the amount collected in 1892, to 914,000,000 in 1S9G. The advocates of a tariff for revenue only promised that imported luxuries should bear the burden ot the customs taxes, but from the foregoing statements of an official character there is no pros pect whatever for its accomplishment under existing law. Rheumatism Quickly Cured. After having been confined to the house for eleven days and naying out 825 in doctor bills without benefit, Mr. Frank Dolsoo of Sault Ste. Marie.Mich., was cured by one bottle ot Chamber Iain's Pain Balm costing 25 cents aod has not since been troubled with that complaint. For sale by Clark O. Proud "In Mizzoorah," This is a wonderful year for wise legi: latures, and it is hard work to do justice to them all. The Missouri legislature of 189G must not be neglected. It treads the deep waters of wisdom with un faltering feet. It does not forget that the competition between itself acd the assembled cages of Arkansas and Kan 80s is severe, and il never sleeps, except of nights and at other convenient sea Bons. Last Thursday was a day of characteristic and fruitful production among the wise imen at Jefferson City Wumeley introduced into the house a bill providing that railroad companies shall not be allowed to use wooden rails and tie them with a string, and fixing the fine for a violation of the law at 850,000. An apologetic dispatch says that Wamsley's bill is a joke. A joke on Wamsley, perhaps, for it is just exactly the kind of measure which a body of philosophers like the Missouri legislature is likely to pass. Besides, a joke in a joke seems superfluous. Cer tainly Spofford was not joking when he brought into the same august institu tion a bill providing for the appoint ment of a board ot inspection to examine the attainments ot barbers. A national board to examine legislators is likely to be needed at any moment. It is surprising what a "wee bit ot a thing" can accomplish.

It was the last to be released from the benduge of slavery which has disciplined every race acd tribe ot peo ple that ever pOosessed the power of say ing and pnigressing a.id absorbing sur rounding people. Such races are van quished, but never bubdued, for they nb-orb their v.iiiquii-t.ers. The tiaite of the negro are ati juvenile. They are lively, hopeful, tmir-ic loving; follow drums and tl.igs and loye the circus all traits of jouth. The time is come now when the Anglo-American Negro Race, perfectly civilized and disciplined uniler most favorable circumstances shall form the nucleus of a splendid civilizilion. Providence hits given that race all the advantages in the start to day. It is to be to the- coasts of Africa and of some other regions what the Pilgrim Fathers were to- New England and North America the Feed whence shall spring and eprend a race possessed ot all the highest traits and advantages' of these later times. One would be shallow indeed to belive that this race has undergone th9 domestication of slavery under Christian civilization for no creat purpose whatever. The writer of this would like to see among the ris.ng generation of the Negro race a greater pride. For indeed they have good reason under every consideration, historically, philisophicaly or morally, to ba proud and utterly contemn that narrow provincialism that pervacdes so many American people and causes them to disestnem the "colored race."
