On Mexican Soil.
I tiHve written you before of Northern Mexico from the Rio Grande to the city of Mexico, and could Bdd but liMn to my former descriptions, although I might correct a few statements that I made at the time, if I could remember what they were, and how badly they were exagger ated. Out I must cnnfess that I felt quite Bt home on Mexican soil and the exhortations of the beggars ami fruit vendars caused ineto feel quite content. I However our team reached the city only ; 8 hours behind time, ami by so lining I gave me the opportunity of seeingn part of Mexico thnt I had not before viewed by sunlight.. That is. from Queretero near which are lh famous Opal mines also uoted as tlie plai-e of execution of Mnxiuillioii.to tin- capital. Some twenty miles fnnii Mexico, is the Noehit-tongo cut whu-ii was begun -Mime 1500 years ago, intended as a drainage canal for the Valley of Mexico. It evidently proved a failure thoiig'i it represents an enor mouB amount, of labor, being in 60 me places 0!ie hundred feet deep and about the Pmue twd'h, and !: several miles long. The city it-nlf slim:" many indications of advauf.iii.nt. Tii. automobile and nppendicitifr .ire tn r, and the restive mine nnd iii.iuuf'ictiir!iig promotor is abroad in the land. 1 left Mexico April 2i for Puebla via Intenxseanic Railway. )S kilos dihtanl. nlso a very historiccil, the scene of the last resistance made by the French troops. Armed with letters of introduction U various mining sharks, I proceeded to Oaxac:i, capital of the state of the smuts name, and 3fJ0 kilos from Puebla. The two cities nre connected by the Mexican Southern Railway, a narrow gunge rood which terminates at either point. For the most part the road is level, com paratively, dropping out of Puebla it descends gently about 3,000 feet. Cut rises mure abruptly near Onxnca, usual ly following a water course. At a point about midway, two rivers meet. At this junction, the lowest point on the ruad the rivor created by the con fluence leaves the road at right angles. and proceeds directly across the country to the Gulf of Mexico. The rond follows " the to tributaries. Quite an unusual feature in railroad construction, as well aa the direction of the How of the two rivers which How directly toward each other, thnt is from exactly opposite direc tions. On the train I encountered a man bound for the same place that I hud selected for my destination nnd as it was his first trip to Mexico, and his only means of communication was the Eng. lish language, I quickly found myself appointed guide, interpreter and general broker for his Vnnkeeship. I realized the importance of my position when I discovered that he had neglected to transfer his luggage at Pueblo, conse quently the duties of secretary were forced upon me. Then in the capacity of Counor I se cured transportation for ourselves to the mining district on a buekboard, only to discover that my helpless friend had but 9 cents in current coi. lie had been supplied, in exchange for good Ameri can money with private bank bills of the state of Uhihr.-ihua, and for which be could not get a cent in the highly enlightened state of Oasnca. The city of Oiixacn is celebrated for its mild nnd equable climate. It is sur rounded by mountains or rather sota in a pass in the mountains at an elevation of about tivo thousand feet. South of town the country is a rolling plnip broken occasionally by a sharp peak caused probably by voli-an:c eruptions. There are ruins of nmny ancient vil luges in the vicinity, some of which nre unusually interesting. Especially Mitla with its mosaics and many relics of Aztec arts and industries. Ocotlan.the headquarters for mining men of nearby districts, is 25 miles from Oaxaca, by stage, farther by horse. The inhabitants thereof aro Indians, enjoy ing a very ancient mode of living, are cunuing, dishonest, dirty, fanatical nnd straggly averse to any violent exercise, excepting bull lighting, but that only involves a few. They are hostile to foreigners and ns laborers are almost useless. There are a few exceptions to the above, but they are rare. The aver age wage is about 37c per day, which ih at least twice their value. The foreign residents are principally mining men (alleged) who have wmie claims out in the hills, but do most of their mining inthobarrooinaofOcollan. Each one has been poor all his life and now can rest on his oars. He has it at last, a bank or bonanza. He is only waiting for ten thousand or so from eonie of his rich and iiitlueutil friends in the elates to develop bis property, and put up n mill. In the meantime he ails in thebhade listening intently for pome one to order drinks or otTer him n hundred or so forty six cent Mexican silver dollars for his claim. There are albo some real mining men in tho locality but are seldom seen at Oaothin. They are rustling around in the hills in the hot sun, living on tortil las and beans, working like slaves try ing to get a days work out of the In diana. They ure the men who will win. They do not near kaikai suits, leggings, and pistole, but nn old blue llannel shirt overall and hobnniled shoes. They have no miues for tale. They nre mak ing mines. There are pome good mines there which aro producing henyily. Ono clears about $100,000 P"" month. There nre, perhaps, five or six paying mines in the entire district. Xo others have been developed and nl present ap pO'irances are against many of thorn ever being explored. I have neither bought or located prop erty, owing largely to lack of funds for development which would require one to two thousand dollars for each claim, and I cannot see bow any profit can be derived from a claim that is simply be ing sat on waiting fur lightning to strike it.

Next to the wage earner, tho class most benefitted by the revival ofpropper- tty under a Republican administration are tlie farmers, xno general rise in prices in all agricultural products has transformed their industry from depres sion to tnrift. Experts huve estimated that the products of agriculture lae-t ear were worth a billion nnd a half dollars more than any year during the Clove- and-Wilson depression from 1S92 to 1S9C. This is nn average increase of M per cent. Live ttock in general has gained in value 30 per cent nnd crops show an increaeu of 115 per cent. The products of live stock, including meats. dairy products etc., have increased 10 per cent over the lowest point during the period meiilioiii'il. Horses have in creased one-third, cattle about 10 per cent and bheep hive about doubled in value. In values of farm lands there is decidedly an upward totidency nnd 6ales are far more numerous, as a result of bettor prices for farm products. A bnuhter day has dawned for the farmers of America, and the restless panicky class of agriculturists who in 1S90 were prono to belieye in free silver as a pnnacea for their ills, are now con tented and happy nnd confirmed in the belief thnt protection nnd prosperity go hand in handund that Bound money and contidenco are the foundation of all in dustrial progress.

The Skin Should Be Healthy. The first essential to that bi-auty of complexion which we all envy in otherh and seldom make an honest effort to secure for otin:elivs is a healthy tkin. The camel's luirfncn brush is much to be comniendea. T ii-ep the face healthy it must tirst be kep. clean, and a vigor ous rubbing with the brush is much more effective for this thnn simply wash ing the face with n cloth or sponge. lie Bides, it increases the circulation and invigorates the skin. The face should be first thoroughly scrubbed with soap and water, using tlie brush freely. After that some good preparation of skin food should be rubbed in. If uone other can be had, take a teaspoon of thick sweet cream. Rub in thoroughly, rinse tho face with warm water nnd dry complete ly. The skin will then be delightfully soft nnd fresh. The daily bath is, of coutse, tho foundation of a Rood com plexion. Without it no woman can re tain her freehness very long. Exercise is another essential. The languid young woman who starts in life with a pillow glued to her back may gain a certain reputation for delicate loveliness that will do for awhile, but she will soon fade, like flowers that are dainty but net vigorous. It is the athletic young womao that retains her youthful bloom. Reports show thnt over fifteen hun dred lives have been saved through the use of One Minute Cough Cure. Most of ' ise were cases of grippe, croup, asthma, whooping cough, bronchitis and pneumonia. Its early use prevents con- sumption. Forealeby S. . Aiken, and C. O. Proud.

Cultivate a Sweet Voice. Kind hearts tire more plentiful than persistently kind and gentle voices, and 1 yet luvo loses much of its power when the voice is sharp and hard. Try, therefore, most earnestly to ac quire the right tone in speaking, and guard yourself carefully from falling in to careless and bad habits of voice. Often a bharp voice shows far more j ill-will than the heart feels, but people i do nut know that tho tpeaker s "bark is ! worse than her bite," nnd they believe her to be ill tempered and disagreeable. It is bo easy to pick up n sharp and snappish manner of speaking. Very of 1 ten it is acquired in mirth, nnd in the 1 give and take battles of words in which ' boys and girls delight.

They Arc Inseparable. Twin colored women, that remind one of tho famous Siamese twins, passed through Kansas City recently, having come here on the Wabash from the East, and went out on theSanta Fe Inst night. They are a wonderful pair, being joined together above the waist so that their separation would bring about their death but at the same time they nre two dis tinct persons, each with her own tastes, her own method of dressing, but nt the same time Joined inseparably to each other. What one eats helps to nourish the other; what one drinks will in a measure quench the thirst of the other. They are about 00 years of age, nnd wero well dressed, in charge of a white I woman, who was taking them to some point West. They were the object of a vnst amount of curiosity on the part of ! the travelers, and it is said that some of ! the excursionists from Sedalia were so inter-,ei i.. the tw,nB thnt thev forot all about their train, and were left. , , One of them wolked freely, but the other walked a littl sideways, and ex penencetl a little dilliculty in getting . - IIIUUK The woman in charge of them would say very little regarding thorn, nnd seem ed to want to preserve n strict secrecy respecting them. This wns helped on by keeping the twins completely veiled, nnd refused to allow anyone to talk with them. They were hero with n show about two years ago. Schools in Chicago's Large Store.

England, Germany, Frnnce ajd cther countr,ea have Uken Kan-ialml,ar ncIion to thnt of th8 UniU)d ' States, and It ia not at all improbable that the powers will come into collision with the Chinese Government or the Chinese rebels before the trouble ends. The reactionary society of foreigner-haters called the Boxers have ben winning victories against the regular Chinese troops recently, and Pekin itself is in danger of capture by them. Foreigners are Hying for their lives from the inter ior of the empire. Many of the Chinese converts of the foreign missionaries have been murdered. The Boxers are a sort ot Chinese Know-Nothings. They are against the foreigners and all their works, and would massacre all of them w10 are ju the Chinese Empire if they couy reacij em or dared. An BmharrniiBinff fact, in thn ffunernl Chinese situations is that tho Empress Dowager, the ruler of China, is believed to be in harmony with the reactionaries. She sends thousands of soldiers against them, but many ot these join them. In fact, the Chinese regular troops in the neighborhood of Pekin seem to be about us enthusiastic to coalesce with the men they nre sent to tight against as theeol rclatives I d'era of Louis XVIII were to join Bona J parte when they were directed to cap- iture him after his escape from Elba. frli ii VmnMaa nnmnlirit.v in thn a n 1 1 . . j i j . i I.. . ii i fi n nrnttaitanrifl i a nalnnlttlarl tn anil dmloraatic difllculties to the situa- tio she ,1I1S 811 alonir been secretly or openly hostile to the United States, England and Germany, but particularly to the first and Becond of these countries.

The United States, of course, will uot be in any project of this Bort. The action of the United States at this time is prompted by a de termination to protect its citizens in China, and it has no designs on any ter ritory of that country. But Russia, Ger many and France can not be relied on to ba to disinterested. Nor can England be counted on to remain indefinitely out ot the deals of the rest of the great na tions of Europe to partition the Chinese Empire. The courseof the United States will be clear. After ita citizens are ren dered safe in the pursuit of their 'call ings in China, the American troops will be withdrawn, but the soldiers ot the other countries will hardly be so quick to leave. Some exciting news from China is likely to come soon. DR. II. A. KAULL, . Physician and SurgeonT - IIELWIG, MISSOURI.
