Mow a Famous Railway Station In tho
Mouth went Ixok A Place Where a
Qneer Mixture of Humanity May He
Dally Seen A Passing Glance.
One of the famous eating houses of
the Atchison road is situated at Wallace,
where the train going south storm late in
the afternoon. As the cars draw up at j
the station the long platform ia thronged
with the people of thecountry. of diverse
races. Rough miners in flannel and
heavy hoots stand watching the train;
cowboys, set off by sombreros and spurs,
swagger about the platform, and Spanish-Americana,
with swarthy faces and
gleaming black eyes, lounge against the
railings, looking impassively on the
scene. Most picturesque of all there
gathered are the descendants of the
tribes akin to the Toltecs and Aztecs,
those migrating people, whose first home '
was in the northwest before they went
south to colonize the valleys of the Mex
ican plateau the Pueblo Indiana from
Santo Domingo and San Filipe.
They are quaintly clad in their charac
teristic garb of leggins and tunic, with
a blanket dress for the women, and some
times for the men a gaudy blanket wrap
ped about the body. Some are awaiting
the train on the station plaftorm, and
others, belated, are seen running toward
the cars, bearing on their heads and
backs the things they have to trade.
They exhibit a great variety of pottery.
in the shape of vessels of divers sizes
form and patterns of decoration, and
many earthen idols of infinite ugliness.
They offer for sale pieces of what the
New Mexican curiosity dealers call
smoky topaz, which in reality ia obsidian
or volcanic glass, the material used by
tne ancieni Aztecs tor cutting purposes,
trom swords down to razors.
About the train is a characteristic col
lection of passengers. There are tour
ists, Euroiean and American commer
ciai travelers, young men from the east
going to the southwest to try their fort
unes, and perhaps in the rear cars some
families of emigrants. Representing the
territory are merchants, miners and cat
tlemen of American and Spanish-Ameri
can descent, while opposite the blonde
eastern lady, in her daintv traveling

beauty with the blood of Aragon or Cas
tile in her veins, and perhaps a darker
and not unbecoming tinge from Indian

Almost without exception the passen
gers are aftable and disposed to conver

west of the hundredth meridian
There is an excellent dinner, plentiful
and well served, at the pleasant and
roomy railroad restaurant, with so much
tune allowed for the stay that the
tr.-iveler, after his ample and leisurely
meal, is able to walk about in this bar
barously brilliant scene and make bar
gains with the brovfti and worldly wise
sons and daughters of the country for
siich of their wares as he fancies. The
Pueblo Indians hasten toward any one
whose eye they inay catch, hold up their
goods, and address him in a language
mainly aboriginal, with perhaps a few
pamsn ana American words inter
mingled, but the only part of the dis
course really understood on either side is
the extemporized sign language
1 hey ask several prices, expecting to
be beaten down to a fair rate, and they
seldom will let the possible customer get
away without consummating a trade.
Demure, swarthv Pueblo children look
on the transactions of their elders with
great interest, the larger girls helping
their mothers by carrying the very
young children in a couch made by
slinging a shawl about their necks.
1 lie Indian pottery is the ware most
purchased by the passengers. It is
quaint of pattern, and in its way much
of it is really beautiful. The material
of which it is made is a white or graj-ish
tinted clay, which the men bring to the
women, who are the pottery makers.
The Indians guard jealously the secret
of the places where are found the earth
that makes the choicest kinds. The
hunter, prospector or railroad explorer
coming suddenly ujKn these natives en
gaged in digging clay for the purpose is
likely to remember the terror and con
sternation which they exhibit.
The molded pottery is buried in dry
sheep's dung, which is fired, and thus it
is baked. The material used in making
the striped designs is a decoction from a
certain green root which the Indians
call wake. It is painted upon the ves
sel.'', and in the baking it turns black.
The best pottery is made by the Acoiiw,
Zuni and Cochiti Indians.

Tlie Heal Secret.
Tell me not of your doubts and dis
couragements." said Goethe; "I have
plenty of my own. But talk to me of
your hope and faith." The tone of com
plaint is one which we are all too ready
to accept, and which is not only in
jurious to ourselves but hurtful to all
who come in contact with us. In speak
in of a young woman who hail filled
several good positions, but with no de
gree of success, an elder woman said:
She could have kept either position and
earned a good income if she had not
been so dissatisfied. She was continu
ally finding fault, and never felt that
she was appreciated."
It may be safely said that this attitude
of inind is one that almost predetermines
failure in any line of work. Patience
under adverse circumstances will often
bring about favorable results, while
complaint only accentuates and fixes the
cause of complaint. Avoid mention of
the disagreeable things that may come
into your life. If you cannot be patient
you can at least be silent. The secret of
success lies not so much in knowing
what to say as in what to avoid saying

man had beeu murdered by some tin
