How "Women of The IVcit Indies Com pare With our Belles. The upper classes are either Span ish, or Creoles, or "Sambos." The former are those who come from Spain naturalized citizens we call them in North America ; the second aro natives of the island, of Spanish blood, more or less mixed: the third are remnants of the negro race. A Spaniard can marry a "Sambo," as all who havo negro blood in their veins are seriously called, without losing caste. The" male ' 'Sambos" often find wives among the Creoles, but, seldom among the Spaniards. Some of the best -families in Cuba, as well as Porto Itico, have "Sambo" blood in them. The President of Venezuela is a "Sambo," as the Presi dent of Mexico is an Indian. There are many pretty girls to be seen among the lower classes moro in Porto Rice than in Cuba bright eyed, jolly, sylph-like beings; as graceful and supple as a panther, timid and modest, but with all the coquettish graces that budding wo manhood is .endowed with and al ways has been in all ages and in all latitudes. None of them can read, none of them ever saw the inside of a school house and do not know' of the existence of books ; they call you an "Americano," but have as little idea of where an American came from as of the composition of the stars ; they reply "So Scnor" to every tiling you say to them and modestly droop their long, black lashes over such eyes as is supposed were the ruin of Antony and were worn By that dark queen for whoso merosmilo A world was battered. These girls these Maud Mullers of the tropics are beautiful have an animal beauty that calls for admira tion that is genuine and makes them victims of the lust of men and the poverty or avarice of their parents. A gentleman here tells me that he went into the cottage of a Sambo wo man in the country one day with a party of ladies and gentlemen to seek shelter from the rain, and, seeing there a beautiful quadroon girl re marked upon her attractions in the mother's hearing. "She is beautiful," replied the mother, "and Senor Don So and So only last month paid me $150 for her more than any girl in this village ever got. 1 bought two mules and five goats with the money." The belles of the upper classes, those whose languishing eyes and rich bloom have been the topics of so much literature in prose and verse, may be beautiful and natural, but with what they choose to consider artificial adornment they are not. Their eyes are wondrous black and bewitchingandtobeable to use them effectively is a matter of education. It is said that Cuban women and by that 1 mean the whole West Indies can throw more expression into the glance of an eye than any in exis tence, but the people who say it have probably flirted with them or seen the glowing of a heart in love. To me their eyes all look alike beautifully black, sensuously languishing and generally indicative ol a Dau temper, but other wise expressionless. They haven't half the expression of the eyes of a thoroughbred horse or dog and are simply evidences of passion, not of intelligence. And with the eyes, ends tho Cuban w man's beauty. She would spoil them if she could, but as she can't she daubs the plaster on her face all the thicker. The chemists here sell a sort of paste made of powdered egg shells, which the women paint then faces with until they have the ap pearance of plaster "images. They take the stuff with tltcm in the cars, to church and to the opera and when they think nobody is looking give their faces a daub. There cannot exist in the mind of -any one of them a supposition that this plaster of Paris complexion deceives people, but why they think chalk is beauiif ul is a mys tery. The neck and ears of a "West India belle arc about ten shades dark er than her nose and checks. Their mouths are usually large, their lip3 thicker than is consistent with classic rules, but their teeth aro usually white, even, pretty, and well pre served. Although they make sweet meats, or "dulces," a great part of their diet for breakfast, as well as dinner, you seldom see a woman or a man without good teeth. But the most disagreeable thing about a Cuban woman is her voice. That low, sweet musical tone wh'ch is told about as one of the attractions of Turkish beauties is not lieard here, nor is the bold accent of the Enclish girl noticed anywhere in the "West Indies. Tho voice of the most refined Irxly is usually as harsh and rasping as the cry of a parrot and she always talks very loud and in a high key. They mature early and fade early these tropical women. They either dry up and wither, or else become very obese. There are- no beautiful old ladies to be seen, as in all parts of the United States. One of the professors at the TJnivcr eity of Texas is one of the most absent-minded men in the State. Not long since a gentleman, who was only slightly acquainted with him, tsked him : "Professor, are you married?" The Professor "was absorbed in 'l.oujht for a few moments and then t-l-i ,1 : ' , I think so, if I am not mis .ken." Goobers in School Parents are sometimes very un reasonable in regard to fancied griev ances imposed upon their children bv school-teachers. An instance in point lately occurred at Pottsville, Pennsylvania, where six scholars wore expelled from a public school for eating peanuts during school hours, and their parents propose to test the matter in the courts. It strikes us that the parents had better let the matter drop, providing, of course, the children had fair warn ing as was probably the case that if they persisted in munching the succulent "goober," to the annoy ance of the nervous teacher and non eating pupils, they would have to promptly leave the halls of learning. Pcanutsare all right in their place on a train, where tlfe rattle of the cars drowns the noise made in cracking the shells; at town-meetings, where they act as a sort of moderator and preVent much useless talk; by the fireside, where the shucks make ex cellent kindling, and under some other conditions not necessary to state; but the line should crtainly be drawn at schools and churches, although, perhaps, if a man is in clined to go to " sleep under prosy preaching he might take a few with him, already shucked, just to keep himself awake, if he don't chew tobacco. Of course he would natur ally be very careful'not to work his jaws so industriously as to attract at tention, but just enough to get away with a dozen or so peanuts from text to benediction. Most anybody can keep awake easily enough during the preliminary exercises. On the whole, however, even this concession to the appetite for the nut that cheers but does not inebriate is not advisable, and schools should certainly lie exempt from peanut eat ing. Gum is bad enough, but the artistic gum-chewer can manipulate her jaw so deftly and noiselessly as not to annoy others in close proxim ity, and therefore a cud of gum holds over peanuts by a large majority. On the other hand, a teacher ought to convince pupils that peanut eating is demoralizing to a school without going to the extremity of cxpslling them; but if. after a reasonable amount of solicitation and warning, the practice is persisted in, then they should be fired ouC The. decision of he court will be lookeu for anxious! v.' Yoko Up The Wrong Parrot. Funeral fact and funeral fancy are subjects prolific of good stories, but we have rarelv met with a better one than tho following, which is vouched for as a storv of fact. At a Boston fun eral not long ago, the clergyman was dilating upon the many virtues of the departed. As it happened there was much justification for it. as the de ceased wa a man of large heart and many merits; yet the clergyman, probably feeling "free to let his fervor of language play unrestrained, almost outdid his theme. Not content with couching his praise in simple and straightforward words he mounted to imagery and seemed to attribute an gelic as well as human characteristics. When at the climax of his eloquence, his hearers charmed with the sweet incenpe, the spell was broken by a shrill voice, which cried eut: "Facts, facts, give us facts!" The sensible comment came from a sage and venerable parrot which had been removed to an ante-room, and then it was remembered that promin ent among the virtues of the deceased master was a sturdy dislike for flattery and a habit of sharplv rebuking "highfalutin." Rough on Young lawyers. "Have vou anything to say?" asked Judge Noonan of a prisoner upon whom he was about to pass sentence in the District Court of San Antonio. "Yes. iudec." was the renlv of the prisoner, Avhose penalty had been as sessed at imprisonment for life, "I think that the timo wasted in making that lons-windcd speech by that young galoot you appointed to defend me, ought to bo taken out of my sen tence." "Who is your lawyer?" asked one prisoner of another in Galveston jail. "Col. Smithers," was the reply. "Oh, he's pretty good for murder ers, but he isn't much for perjury or horse stealing. I've tried him on both. You should have hired Col onel Jones. He is good at any kind of rascality." A Shaker community Where the ague prevails. What PzrenU Fear. Many persons especially parents nhipfit to onack nostrums as likelv to engender or encourage a love for strong drink. They are ngnt. -Bettor to die of disease than of drunken ness. The use of Parker's Tonic does not involve this danger. It not only builds up the system, curing all ail mnnbt of the stomach, liver and kid neys, but it stimulates without in toxicating and absolutely cures the appetite for liquor. for lame Hack, Side or Uliet use Shiloh's Porous Plaster, Pncu 25 cents.

His name was James Williams.and he resided just across the Snllivan County line, in Putnam County. Mo. He was a native of Tennessee, and was scarred with the marks of the combats of olden times. Up to the time of his death he enjoyed good health for one of his age, possessed a good appetite and slept well. It was a pleasant pastime with him in later years to boast of having flogged the bullies of Tennessee and Ken tucky in his time. He had been en tirely blind'for the past ten or twelve years. He has ton daughters and one son, Uncle Joe Williams, whose head is silvered with age.
