I PARIS IN HOLIDAY ATTIRE How the Gay Parisians Celebrate on Now Year's ' Day. 'PICTURES OF LA BELLE FRANCE Men AVho Unto Kurlcliml the History of the ITronch Nation Monuments and Temples Towering to the Hkles. PAIUS , Jan. 3. [ Correspondence of Tnu Tlcn. ] It Is a very pleasing ride from Uouon to Paris In tbo comfortable cars of tbo Cbcmln do for do 1'Ouost ' , The roadbed is easy , tbcro li little dust and the cars are not overheated as with us. The little engines attached to the train seem like toys con trasted with the great moguls ono sees on the Northern and Union Pacific. The road runs through rtcb valleys every Inch of land being under cultivation and tbrougb quaint Norman villages whoso bouses have steep , red roofs. The little gardens - dons surrounded by stone walls , not for pro- l j- tectlou , but on which to train grape vines and fruit trees , tiny little frail trees like tbo Chinese dwarf trees. We still run along the bunks of tbo Seine nnd occasionally see tbo towers of some chateau pooping above tbo trees and the little villages , always with a church , some modern and others that IOOK as if many centuries bad rendered them moio Interesting. We reached Paris about dusk and \voro driven from the station up the grand avnuuo do 1'Opera to our hotel on the Hue Ulvoll , op posite the gardens ot the Tullorlos. Wo came to Paris free from prejudice and wo are disappointed. Perhaps it Is tbo heavy , dull , humid atmosphere , that makes Paris loss beautiful and brilliant than wo expected. In Now York wo loft lunsblno and doUr utly charming weather. Hero everything , * under lowering sUlos and 111 * wet and muddy. If I were not afraid of my enemies I would wrlto a book and call It " lei , " not white but black lies. Ono person told us to bo sure and take lots of wraps and rugs. You will suffer so with cold In the cars. Tbo oars are wore comfortable than ours. Anotbor said you cannot drink water In Paris ; it Is too bad , Tbe water Is very good bore. The things wo expected to llnd good are bad and What wo expected to bo bad are good , Paris at present is not cleaner than New York and not as clean as many ot our own cities. If they would tarn the hose on tbo Itrcots aud suppress the beggars it would bean an Improvement , However , this is the Jour doj'au ' , the day tbo Parisians celebrate as wo do Christmas , and the beggars are al lowed to ply their trade without hindrance. From the balcony of our room wo look Into tbo gardens of iho Tullerlos and bavo a coup d'ocil from the Place du Carrousal to the * Place do la Concorde to the Arc de 1'Etolle. Tbo whole of tbo Champs Elysscs Is spread before us , from tbo colossal statue of ( Jam- botta to tno Are do 1'Utollo Napoleon bad erected to celebrate bis marriage with Marie Louise , aud which oven tbe Parisians , In their triumphal march turough the conquered city , spared. But the commune has loft nothing stanalug of tbo grand old paUoo of the Tullorles , only a little ruin wboro ono can sco tha window from which our countryman , Dr. Evans , dropped tbo beautiful empress , took ber to a place of safety , else she uileht bavo mot a worse fate than tbe lovely queen , borne from t'als place to a prison and to the guillotine. Across tbo Seine wo bavo a view of the Hotel des In- vulldos , wboro repose the remains of the great emperor. The Pantheon onoo , a church now , the mausoleum of tbo great men of Franco , and this beautiful Greek temple , where Victor Hugo aud other of France's great writers , poets , palntorn and Statesmen are entombed , is a fair tatnplo of ttbkl to many of tbo churches aud palaces of Silk Dept.

The original build ing of the Pantheon wns a church nrootod in the third ceutury , i think , in honor of the patron saint of Paris , St. Genovlovo. nearly destroyed once , then agntn restored by Catherine do Modicls. It has boon a toinplo of reason in the revolutions , dese crated by mobs , again n church , and now a temple of fntno. All the old buildings of Paris are a history in themselves. Now Year's day in Paris is a fete. 'We saw the senators and deputies on their way to nay their respects to President Carnet , rid ing In carriages , with a guard of mounted policemen , but there was nothing very bril liant about it. The condition of two of the writers of Franco seems to cause more emo tion M. Ernest Uenan , who is ill , and Guy do Maupassant , who has gene insane , per haps from reading his own vllo books than the reception of the prosidontof the republic. Our minister , Mr. Hold , and his wife had a brilliant reception on Now Years. Tno Duo do Uoobofoucauld on the llth of February received with Mrs. Hold. Sno was never moro beautiful and charming. The whole of the American colony were out in force. Apropos ot Miss Mitchell I board a very bright man on the steamer coming over propose that the American people should elvo MIsi Mitchell a dot , since aim was the first American girl who any foreigner was over Itnown to bo willing to marry without one. Little Florence Andensclx was not at t beHeld Hold reception. She bos Just had a little countess only throe davs old. General King of Baltimore , our consul general , also had a very brilliant reception on the jour do 1'au. Ho is the prince of en tertainers and comes from the state where they Uuow bow lo give grund dinners. I beard ono of the American colony congratu lating another because bo had a minis ter who could afford to entertain , not like "Poor Mr. Wasbburn" or Mr. Noyoi who were not rich , "only great. " Mr. Hold's Itoon Intellect , good Judgment , and talent , wont for naught. "Why , " she said , "oven the count or Paris called at the Morgans , " I suppose the Mor gans fed well too. Cannot some brlttbt American genius wrlto a book on "Snobs , " a laThaokoryl Wo saw a good deal of the French people on New Yeari1 day and wo did riot discover they were any moro Joyous , or lively than a crowd would bo in our own country on a hol iday. Tbo hotels are no hotter than ours , not as good , You do not got so much for your money , Tbo shops , certainly , are not so bandsomo and very little cheaper. On tbe ruodela Pair ono find * the most wonderfully beautiful display of Jewels , In the window , but when you enter the doors there Is noth ing but a counter with a man behind , and a snaco as "big as a closet. 13ut though wo have humid skies , mud and neither the good hotels or shops we have nt home , wo have a city filled with grand old palaces , churches , monuments , inuseumi , libraries , rich in history , romance , and at tractive to all who wlsb to study. It Is the old Paris that ono wants to see the Place do la Uopubllquo ( once the Bastllo ) , the Louvre not la grand Magazln du Louvre ) , the Lux embourg , the Cluny palace , once the abode of kluci and quooni , uow with "Egallte , llberlo ot fratormto" orer all.

But when you get up in the morning nnd see the beautiful country , the valley of the Rhino , the river running out of its bed and overflowing the whole laud , the old city with Its papal palace for it was the resi dence of the pope for many years the old church , erected on tbo site ot a pagan temple , and walk on the Rocbor du Dom , from where ono has a magnificent view of the whole valley and Pont d'Avlgnon , or rather the ruins , built by Saint Bonozot at the end of the twelfth cen tury , ono forgets bad dinners and everything else disagreeable. I came very near baulng au adventure at Avignon , and being urrosted , I supposo. I opened a door suddenly and spoilt tbo bonnet of a woman , who was Just coming out. She began , talking , gestlculat- ulating and shaking her fist , I did not say pardon mo , but looked her cooly in the face and said , I do not understand. The other part of my party began to apologize , but I cried , do not say a word of French or we are lost. Quito a crowd bad collected and the woman began talKlng to the gens d'armes , but I still persisted , In I do not understand. After a little wo wore allowed to get into tbo train ana my only revenge was hollowing out of the car as wo moved off , a French sentence , for which I paid dearly by tbo suffering - foring of my party for fear wo might be de tained when wo reached Nlmes. Last summer , when Bob Tbornburg was in Paris , ho was constantly made Indignant by tbo rough manner of some of the men to his women folks , and being a bravo man like his gallant father , he longed to whip a Fiouch- mnn , and , finally , bo did pulled oft bis coat and gave Mr , Frencby a soand thrashing- paid his flno and told the Judgo. or whatever they call themselves hero , that bo would will ingly pay tbe same flno every day to bo al lowed to "lick a frog-eater. " I should like to have had Bob along to have crushed some of thnjo leering Frenchmen. As a general thing tbo pcoplo are very polite. 1 asked a question of a gentleman in Paris who walked quite a square out of bis way to put mo on tbo right street. And all the ladles wo moot take infinite trouble to give us Information and entertain us. But , oh , my I If they would only talk a little slower , or would only say yes or no to your question , instead of throw ing out their R'a at you like cannon balls 1 In the cathedral at Avignon were two band- some monuments of Popes John and Benedict the XII. Behind the cathedral Is a square tower , whlnh was used as the prison of tbo Inquisition , where In one month sixty-three innocent victims were executed. Avignon Is ono of tbe places that claims to bo tbe birth place of Petrarch. Ho lived hero once with his poor little wife while bo was writing sonnets to bis .Laura. There | s a quaint old cloeu near the hotel do villa whore the figures strike tbo hours. There are also fine statues ot Racine and Mollore. The musoo contains some very flno pict ures , besides many curious medallions , sculptures , etc. , that wo bad not tbo time to eeo , because wo wish to hurry on to Nice , whore wo hope to find sunny skies and balmy air , and get rid of the bad colds wo caught in Paris. And at lost we are at Nimos , I bad deter mined before wo left homo to see Mimes , be cause I bad road so much of tbo Roman an tiquities to DO found there. With tbo ex ception of the Arena and tbe Maison Carreo , which is a well preserved temple with thirty Corinthian columns , said to have been built by ono ot tbe ( Jiesars , there Is nothing of much Intel os t. Marseilles Is the largest seaport in France , on tbo Mediterranean. There are two forts at tbo entrance of the harbor , St. Jean and St. Nicholas , which protect the city , with the batteries on tbo bigb bill , whore stands the church of Notre Dame do la Uardo. From tbo summit of this bill a most magnificent panorama U spread before you of the city , the Cornlcbo road , the Mediterranean , with tbo islands dotted In here and there. Tbo whole of Franco seems under clouds- it rains everywhere.

A grand and divers ! fled coast stretches westward , past as yet invisible Tangier , to Capo Spurtol , the north- westernmost point in Africa. Portions of the coast are grandly precipitous. Again great forests sweep from noble heights into slumbrouR valleys which undulate softly to the sea. Tbo lights and shades are strange. The green of the middle strait blends into a rosy puce towards land , Ibis into a brilliant blue further on , and the coast line at the water's edge dooms like a thread of lustrous onyx. Above this , brown ; then purple , then emerald , and beyond tbcro is a glowing cf faint orange , as though tbo valleys palpably flung back the sunlight which lingered lov ingly above. Beyond this a line of tender purple , Jagged with feathery , misty fronds. 'I'bls is where tbe Atlas mountains are. And then between the mountain passes and peaks and tbe sky is a faint thread of saflrony pale pink , something llko n gauze ot lavender laid on a band of roses. That gleam of color flashes tbo mental vision to iho vast Sahara and the far Soudan. Feasting with eager and selfish delight upon the glorious shores of two continents , I bad lost sight of honest Dobrado ; Dobrado who was to bavo returned to bis place by the babbling fountains of Lisbon , from Bejo , should 1 persist in tramping thence to Tavira aad tbe sea ; Dobrado who was nowsworn servitor and friend ; Dobrado broad of grin as Gargantua , and of beam as Quixote's no loss faithful squire ; Dobrado whom I found with lowering eyes and hideous face , as rapt as I had been , scowling with unutterable hate at tbe fair land of tbo Moors , In bis attitude , looks , mutterlngs and unconscious gesticulations , increasing every moment in rapidity and Intensity , the whole story of the irrevocable vongotulnoss of Christian against Moslem and Moslem against Christian was told. Jt was a theme for poet ; subject for artist Europe the implacable foe of Africa ; the cross and tbo crescent ; incarnate hate , the outgrowlb of Incarnate love , burning lo annihilate Incarnate fanaticism ; Christian savagery thirsting for the life of Modem barbarism , Hereditary Hatreds. I touched the Uallegau gently upon tbo shoulder , and my eyes sought bis inquir ingly , lie trembled and was woefully con fused for a moment. Then bis great blue eyes saddened and bo said softly and slowly , as though his heart meanwhile traveled a long aud bitter way : "There is not a choza ( cabin ) from Finis- terre to Palcncla In which there does not hang some forefather's galta , or hoz ( slnklo or sword upon tbo wall , under which the Gallogan boy Is not dally brought to swear vengenco for Ibe murders of Iho Moor ! " rAs I * Dobrado's dramatic pondered over no tion and words , I could not but fool that , after all , it is a pleasant thing to live , as wo Americans do , t > o far removed from the end less mental , if not physical , clashing : * of tboso awful hereditary religious hatreds of tbo centuries. But just now wo bavo rounded Cape Mala bar and Tangier lies before us llko a mass of foam churned In Iho soothing tldns of the Gibraltar strait , aud tossed Into structural semblance upon the mountaln-rlmuioJ shore of tbo bay. Soon tbe mass of white resolved Itself into splotches of more brilliant white aud seams and checkers of shade ; then Into white cubes of varying dimensions. Gradu ally projecting corners aqd heights of snowy masonry take shape to the eye ; and then the pale pinks , yellows and blues of the painted walls blond lute a ro.y u hole , broken only by a slender square tower , Mlib glistening porcelain ildei , and one bugo , ruinous 01023 , Books and Stationery.

Landing at Tangier. There Is no mole , quay or plor nt Tangier ; and wo carao to anchor near the shelving shore , where the huroorsido traffic gees on with wondrous dm , and the Moorish customs officers squat upon their haunches transact ing their duties in severasllonco and gravity. On either side were numberless fcllucaswith strange craft from tbo lower Mediterranean , and perhaps two score of French , Spanish , English and Dutch schooners , barks and brigs. Rather a lonesome harbor seems that of Tangier ; and the two Hugo British men- of-war , which bad boon lying here several days in view ot possible danger to BritisU Interests , from tbo threatening revolt of in terior tribes , who seem always to bo about to bo doing somothlncr unpleasant , brought again tbo keen and humiliating longing I have bad in an hundred other ports , that the American government possessed sufllclont character and dignity to make our flag a tltbo as well respected as any other that floats tbo soas. Getting ashore at Tangier is not altogether a stately performance. Scarcely hod our steamer anchored when there came swarmIng - Ing over tbo rail from all quarters a horde of swarthy turbancd harbor porters , dressed In tbo natural black leathern skin of Moroc co , many with huge rings In their oara , dauglots and banglots of tinkling metals , and brlgbt cashes , barelegged and barefooted , or shod with loose sandals ; all as uncanny and weird a lot as ever looted a ship nnd butch ered its crow in the good old days of Moorish piracy and pillage. Formerly these black Imps grabbed trav elers bodily , lifted them astride their bocks or shoulders and waded ashore with thorn. Recently a diminutive landing stage has been built , but tbo treatment is quite as ferocious. Ordinarily the stranger's belong ings are seized and pitched Into a half dozen different small boats and himself made tno unwilling subject of a fierce scram ble , after which the victor pulls and hauls bis victim into still another boat , and rushes him to the landing whore a separate bribe must bo paid for the recovery of each article , and a tlnal heavy tribute is exacted for one's own liberation. Precisely the same form of piracy Is repeated on your way to a hotel with your own effects ; but once within the great gate loading Into the city from the harbor side , aid you ore safer from annoyance and exaction than In any other Moorish or Christian city In tbo world. A Tunny Little Scruj ) . Good fortune had more than once attended mo through tbo alert and cujmlng services of Dobrado , and It stood mo now In good stead , getting mo on African soil unre lieved of as much as a copper flu ; although his rugged diplomacy at llrst sub jected mo to some disquiet. Standing in front of mo , as each furious onslaught by a porter was made , and without apparent effort of bis giant strength , llrst with bis open right hand and then with bis left , be sent African , Moor , Berber and what not , oll'jo ' sprawling to the steamer's deck. Each Jumped nimbly to bis feet and slunk humbly away. Suddenly a follow , swarthy as a Moor , with hair and nutted beard , black , curly and glossy as Astrakhan wool , spiaug from the crowd full upon Dobrado. Visions of trage dies , dungeons in the Kasba , consular courts of inquiry and International complications flashed before mo. Tbe two clinched ; parted clinched again ; and , after various alarming contortions , fell lu what still souins to boa torrlflo embrace together upon their Uncos. Then such kissing and embracing began as I had never before scon between man and mac , man and woman , or stranger still , between woman and woman. Soon they arose utterly breathless but ra diant , Dobrado half dragged the hulking Woodenware.

" Hack Windows of I'orclgn II Co. ' "Sonor" could nod did. "Sonor,11 the writer , shuns great hotels in his wanderings ; loves to know the lowly , and , from their standpoint of thinking , fooling and condi tion , to thus look through the back windows of foreign life and ways. No ono can wholly tell another what Tangier - gior Is like within its ancient city walls. It has no street geography. Though it contain * scarcely 20.000 souls. Its own Inhabitants get lost within It ; and there Is but ono street or way In which the stranger Is sufo from absolute - lute wreck of consciousness of location. This extends upward from tbo harbor sldo to the See do Barm , tbo grout outside market placa of Tangier , Just wboro you leave the city on , tbo xvay to Fez , Morocco's capital. Once a dozen yards away from this narrow thoroughfare - faro of bazaars , and the prompting to prayer to Allah or Allah's subjects for succor Is a quickly realized experience. But for Dobrado and bi kinsman , 1 should have turned bade , oassod tbo night outside the great city gate upon the shore boncatn , the stars and some handy tarpaulin , and In continently fled the place upon tbo next day's ' steamer for Gibraltar , As it was , 1 kept close to my Gallogan guides. Tno ovontng bad fallen before wo had en tered the oiiv. The slngld thoroughfare - faro was a babel of donkeys , camels , goats , water carriers , bara loguod African soldiers and merchants closing their tiny shops. The din of "balakl balnkl balakl1' the equivalent for our "look outl1' ' shrieked bv thousands of voices In tbo choky , chasm- like street , was deafoiilna- . Scores of times on our half-mile way wo were ground agamut buildings , wedged between camels or flung Into pitch black archways. After an hour's struggle , wo turned from this main thoroughfare and plunged la and upward among a maze of streets , so narrow that opposing walls could bo touched by outktrotcbcd hands. The silence here was as itartllng as bad boon tbo din. Now and then perhaps , a ghostly figure flitted by. Here and there was lioflrd the wiiupllng sound of water from overflowing fountains. Occasionally a inutiled form asleep beneath an archway was stumbled upon. Not a light was seen in the whole dlstanro , But for the stars overhead , It was like groping torcblcss through tbo catacombs. In tliu I.iiiul ot tlio Bloom. AtlastDobrado's kinsman baited. With the hilt of his heavy knife , almost as ponder ous as a Cuban macbuto , bo knocked loudly upon a barred and bolted door. A blank face peered savagely from a tiny wicket , There was parley which sounded like a mixture of the Homany tongue and Qallegati Spanish. Trio wicket closed and soon an old man clad In flowing robes , attended by the Africanre turned , Wo were admitted to what seemed tbo dungeon antechamber to a larger dungeon - goon , Directly Dobrado's kinsman showed tbu way up some slippery stone stops , Fol lowing a long gallery wo soon emerged Into the open air. Thence wo were con ducted along what appeared lo be a crumbling parapet , aud I was finally led Into a room perfectly bare of furniture , Tbq place seemed to bo a de tached structure sol upon a housetop , abut ting against the walls of a still loftiur abode. Homo line rugs were brouirht for a pallet. Tbo African almost as soon appeared with a cut brass lamp , a cup of tea , in which mint loaves were flouting and a small roll of white bread. Ho deposited tlie'.o in tliu middle oi the flour and disappeared. Dobrado , who v.ni to pass the night with bis kinsmen , showered the blessings of tioil upon me and loft. I relished my food , put out my antique lamp , wrapped myself In my splendid rugs , and paused iny first night lu the laud of too Moors iu sweet aud dioamless sleep. L.
