The Chapel of Pala Among the Basket Makers Mortar for Grinding Grain. Scene at the Races. The chapel of Pala is a long, barren, seat less hall, with rude tiled fioor, roofed with red tales taken from Temecula. Rude paint ings decorate the walls, and the altar orna ments, though meager, are of the poorest description. Tourists and curiosity hunters have depleted the place. It was a gala time at Pala. and all the inhabitants from far and near had assembled to celebrate the fiesta of its patron saint, San Luis Rey. A stone's throw from the chapel or mission was the ramada, about which the festivities centered. This was a brush structure, made of inter woven green willow branches, about fifty feet square, flat upon the top, with the open ings, which extended completely through dividing the rnmada into three parta, In the center was the square dancing platform, with benches on each side, while the sides or the ramada proper were divided into booths appropriated by dealers of various kinds. It is at mjrht that the nesta really oegins. Vehiclrs of all descriptions have been arriv ing all the afternoon, unloading entire fam ilies, the women wrapped in the inevitable black sbawi, the men in sombreros and long frock coats, riders on horseback, some on mules, until bv 8 o'clock the ramada was thronged with an eager, hard drinking, but good humored, crowd. A few lamps and candles were distributed about, and the ra mada became pi.'turewjue even in its somber ness. The band, two guitars and a violin, struck up "La Paloma," and soon after was almost drowned by the shuffling feet of the dancers upon the sanded floor. Among the lookers on w ere descendants of the old mis sion Indians, the Cahutlos, Diegeaoa, and Others, The fiesta has commenced and all is sup posed to be as merry as the tradional mar riage beil, yet to the strangers there it is a verv solemn aftair. 1 lie segregation between the sexes seems to be complete. The young men in their lonr coats, w hen not taking a hand at the various games of chance or drinking, sit silently by upon a bench smok ing cigarettes, while the senontas dispose themseirrs upon an equally hard bench upon the opposite side of the dancing platform. There is no conversation, no small talk, flir tation or coquetry beyond the speaking black TN hen the noun and guitars strike up tha onc-ninc dance the voung men sol emnly walk over to the voung ladies and lead them out, after the dance as solemnly ea- cortmf; them back again. I be young men had their wme and their cigarettes, and oc casionally lst a dollar at the games, but the senoritas bought their own tomalis and other refreshments. As the night wore on wine flowed more freely, betting became more vigorous, and laughing and shouting were occasionally heard, and but once any indication of serious bv play. At Pauma, ten miles no the rala valley, another mission was visited. Here were larger ram a das and many Indian houses with a tulle or willow annex. The old chief, who was barefooted and hooded with a stovepipe hat several decades old, greeted us cordially, displayed his dancing dress of e.!gle feathers, and stepped a measure for our edification. His bouse was of adobe, with a ramada of tulle or willow literally a summer kitchen, where the familv lounged and lived. The interior of the house, though noorless. was clean, and the family, a large one, tat around eyeing as with curiosity. In every bouse were seen baskets, mortars and mat- ates, the only evidence of art among them people. Mortars were found in various local ities lying about the lipids, never! weighing 160 pound m front of the Ola mission, while I ,),, Tls said by poet, It fa. better far To love and lose.

They are invited to be "assistants" at the wedding. The witness, who is generally the grandest of the "connections of the family. is the most important person. He pays the priest's feea Then come the ladies of honor and the hridemen. The latter have to pur chase sweetmeats for the bridemaids. The "boyarin," who carries the sacred picture of Christ in silver and gilt, is generally a little boy. When the party arrives at the church It is his duty to hand the pictures to the "reader," who places them behind the "royal gaws or leaning against the altar screen. The old nurse, or housekeeper, superin tends the carrying of the dowry from the house of the bnde to that of her future bus band, and airanges everything for the use of the bride. There is no law as to the number of bridemaids or the their costumes. The iresses are not all alike. On the eve of the wedding day sometimes a "farewell girls' party" is given. No gentleman attends this. All those present must be from the unmar ried. They sing choruses, chase each other in the garden and romp to their heart's con tent. They devour any amount of tea, ice cream, lemonade and sweetmeats. After supper thev sav farewell, and leave the in tended bride very exhausted in view of the ceremonies of the following day. The old custom is for the betrothed pair to fast (eat nothing) on the day of their mar riage until the ceremony, which, in the family of a noble, always takes place in the evemnz. This makes the day most tiresome to a girl. The bride distributes her cast off girlish toys, ribbons and Jewelry to her com panions. Those things are called "maiden beauty." The peasant girls cut up and divide among their conrimniona, on their wedding lay, the long ribbons which are fastened at the end of the plait of hair which hangs down the back. These peasants, immediately after their marriage, have the hair braided in two plaits and wound about the head, then covered w ith a sort of tight cap tied behind, or with a cotton or silk handkerchief. When at Pargola, in Finland, I often taw the unmarried girls trooping along in the eventide, band in hand, singing their weird metodica, and friends told me to notice the difference in the style of the hair of the un married and the married. The married women have in addition, under the invariable handkerchief, a little piece of linen, a lappet about the size of a florin, hanging over the center of the forehead. This a more evi dent proof of marriage than wearing a wed- hen the women begin to braid up the hair they sing part of a wedding song: Ahl my braid, my braid of tuaidfn hair.

They rat upon the ground, tailor fashion, with bundles of material by their sides, working at the basket whnh would take them two weeks to finish and which 92 could bny. The baskeu are to these people what tinware is to the whites. One is trunk and holds the wardrobe of the squaws. Another and smaller one serves as a tobacco pooch. An old squaw is sifting grain with a plaque of basket ware. Another is cooking food in a large basket in wbich the water has been heated by the introduction of hot stones. Urapes ore heajed in the largest, while very small specimens are used in a variety ot ways. In ran ma baskets could be found in every house, though none of the owners seemed par ticularly desirous of parting with them. In one broken down adobe visited were three old squaws and on old man. In response ts a request for baskets the latter sang a song, tn which he told the story of the basket mak ers of old. Throwing a coat over his arm he assumed a position similar to a negro when about to pat time, and commenced to sing a weird commingling of sounds in old Cahnila, every line ending in "A-a-ah-ah," followed by an aspirating sound almost asthmatic. In this the old squaws crouching near in the rarnuda joined. At the hrst notes the Mexi cans at the large ramada came Hanging op upon their ponies, and soon the oid chief was the center of u picturesque group. The at tention and applause seemed to excite him, as he redoubled his enorts, waving his wildly, pointing to the four points of the compass, and stamping upon the ground. The entire assemblage joined in the A a-an-an," giving it a rising and falling inflection. As the crowd dispersed at the termination of this entertainment the women and chil dren came pouring out of the mission ol Pauma, where they had been listening to mass and confessing the not of the past six months.
