A lady Writes EnlcrU!nlnf,lj of an old Town la Few IIexIco. From New Orleans Picayune. Imagine a glorious sunny day. such a3 we have in New Orleans in the late fall, when it is cold enough to put on our first winter wraps, and you have the climate of Socorro. The air is light and delicious. Life seems a joyous thing in this radiant atmosphere. The heavens are a dome of cloudless absolutely cloudless blitc; the deep blue of ultramarine. The trees, all turning now, every sliaüe ot pale-green to canary and deep gold, russet brown and crimson glow stand out, sharp and clear, from this background of translucent hue. The sun shines and warms, but does not burn. We can walk for hours without need of parasol or veil. It is cold enourrh to wear heavy winter suits. There is ice every morning at the hydrant, but it soon melts in the warm sunshine. As the sun sinks be hind the mountains a chill creeps over the earth. A fire is then a necessary adjunct to comfort The great Socorro mountain, seemingly distant but an arrow's flight, in reality it is three miles away, Viewed from an undulating hilltop, the village of Socorro lies nestling under its protecting shadow, while the sunlight sweeps over it in patches, like fleeting smiles on the face of some grim giant protector. On the bare mountain sides lie deep of silver, gold, copper and leau, but tne great snaits are empty now. The smelter is shut down, and all their rich treasures lie undeveloped in the deep recesses of his heart. The clustering houses some red-rooted, some adobe stand out in picturesque beauty, imbed ded in golden trees. xmo pretensions to a town aas Socorro. It revels in uneven paths aad winding roadways, Here an adobe wall, cheek by jowl with one of stone, surround an imposing courthouse built of brick. Adobe houses hold their own next door to some fancy residence with green lawns and flowers and growing vines, clustering on porch or pillar, or covering the red brick sides with a mantle of glory. There are no houses built of wood in this land, where forests are not, and lumber is brought from a distance at great expense. It seems an anarchronism to see bay windows tacked on to the adobe houses, which, I suppose our readers know, are built of mud, and have flat roofs that are perfectly invisible, giving the appearance of a square wall or pen. These walls are from one to two feet in thickness, and make the most delightful houses to live in in this climate warm in winter and cool in summer. A stone's throw from our lodg ings we go to our meals in one of these queer adobe houses. The interior is deliciously warm and cozy. Carpeted floors, deep recessed windows that are filled with blooming geraniums, calla lilies, palms and ivy ge ratnuci. Chenille portieres screen the doors, and dotted Swiss curtains veil the windows. A broad divan heaped with pillows fills one corner of the room, whose walls are hung with pictures of "A Yard of Violets," "A Yard of Puppies," photographs, calen dars and the crayon likeness of some dear departed. The broad bay window of the small dining room looks out upon an orchard of apple and quince trees, where hummocks are hung and rocking chairs and pillows invite one to linger Kind Mrs.. B., with la.u";hínr blue eyes, and cheeks like red apple?," serves some twelve or more people to appetizing meals three times a dav. Her table, so neat and shining, with a bunch of chrysanthemums n tfie center, with cheery voice and kindly smile, she serves and talks, going back and forth to her kitchen,, bringing in relays of hot buttered toast and smoking batter cakes, pressing them upon one with warm hospitality. The native Mexicans do not, of course, live in sucn coraiori. Their abodes have floors of bare earth, well beaten down until it is as hard as cement. Long looped strings of -"chili" peppers adorn the outside walls. Oft as not the dog and pig and burro and children all live in happy unity under one roof. It is to be regretted that the natives are fast giving up their native cos tume. The high, picturesque hat and flaring trousers that lent an air of Spanish romance are passing away. We pass every day a family where the thirteen children live in happy-go-lucky fashion with the black dog, the pig ana three burros. i ne mother busily at work (for they keep their homes quite neat in side) the man resting in a tilted chair, smoking in true "dolce far niente" style. Very recently this man, being enrolled as a juror, received a magnificent pay of $4.50 for his valuable services. And what think you, was his in vestment? Comforts, or possibly some treat for his familyl Oh, not he paid it all for a black derby hat, which he proudly wore on election day, with the admiring glance of wife and little ones standing in the doorway to see him pass by. A number of the women still cling to the long, black cashmere shawl with sweeping fringe, that is mantle and headcovering all in one. Only one fairly pretty face have we seen. They grow to look like hags before reaching middle age. iigut years ago Socorro was a thriving mining center. Its inhabitants number ed 3000. Business throve apace Property was booming. Some handsome homes were erected The "smelter" employed its hundreds of workmen. One mine alone had yielded $600,000 in silver. With the fall in the price of silver these mines became unremunerative. The cost of production and transportation exceeded all profits. Thus the owners "shut down" their "works." The people moved away. Property depreciated; the home that cost $10,000 is now for sale at $2000. The settlement that sprang up around the smelting works at the toot ot old .socorro mountain is now crumbling in ruins. The wild cat and the coyote prowl through the deserted homes and stores that once throve in a busv hum. Captain C, a man who has Bpent the better part of his life on ranches and in mining dis tricts, and who, in a broad som brero , might easily pass for "Buffalo Bill," called for us to drive behind a pair of native ponies to see the famous spring that supplies the town with its pure water. .Witn tossing beads tne gay little ponies, "very fresh," as our driver informed us, from having been "let out" for several days, soon carried us bowling along the. fairly good road winding "over the hills and far away 1 here are no trees here, sav those that are planted and irrt gated. The early settlers wisely "set out" a great number that now add materially to the beauty of the country. They are chiefly cottonwood trees, but a difieren variety from our southern cotton wood. Ihey do not grow very tall, branching out in symmetri cal shape. The foliage is smaller than ours. At the first touch of cold every leaf on tbe tree turns a clear, brilliant yellow. Tb effect, driving under rows of these yellow trees, with the vivid blue üky as .background, is very singular. Now we cross the. "arroyo." This is a broad "river bed" of cobble stones, from the smallest round stone to one of bowlder size. Five years ago a cloudburst occurred, the arroyo rose to flood tide, 16 feet deep over parts of the plain, sweeping away houses and cattle and people. Like an avalanche it tore its way round the town, bringing the moun tain rocks in its headlong rush, almost carrying away the oldest building in the town, which is much venerated by the people the Catholic church, built by the missionary fathers one hundred years ago. The eye grows weary gazing over the hills and plains, that are so rocky, so barren, so desolate. It is a relief when the ponies trot through the deserted settle ment and pass the silent smelter, looking like some great sugar re finery, and bear us up to the very base of the mountain. Leaving the conveyance, we climbed up some little distance, where an enormous rock, or part of the mountain, hangs over a stream f water that trickles through a yawning crack. It flows into a arge square basin, and thence through pipes, is carried on to the town, three miles away. Strange to say, the water is quite warm at all times. Por drinking purposes it is drawn and set aside to cool. There are bathhouses built near the spring. In those days of prosperity inval ids came to bathe in these tepid waters. Standing on a bowlder edge, a beautiful view lay spread out be fore us. Endless, endless plains and hills, barren and wild. Far away the mountains fading in the dim distance, turning purple and pink, amethyst, blue and bronze. The hot rarified air was shimmering like a curtain of impalpable gauze all round. In the far blue haze of distance can be seen one of the Aztec peaks, where relics of the cliff dwellers arc found. I he greatest of these recent discoveries of a prehistoric race is a castle town, some thirty miles northwest of Santa Fe. N M. The discoverer, the Rev George Cole, is now shipping his valuable collection of relics to the Northwestern University of Chi cago which has taken up the work of exploration. His collec tion includes what he believes to be some of the most ancient pot tery in the world. It was found in the grave mounds of the city, from which were taken skeletons of a race of giant people 8 feet tall. C. A suao.
