Delays in tho United States Mails.
Crrr of Mexico, Mex., via El I'aso,
Tex., April 24. Kuccutly the mails from
ilitf Uuitcil States liave been renf.-liin this
city with the ;rcatt-t iriegtilarity. An
cxplanHtinii of the annoying statu of af
fair has len ask il of 1'ostinai.ter Nava,
of this city. This morning that gentle
man aaiJ the Mexican Post Oflice Depart-,
inent had lit-cn uitij the International
Railway as far as has beon - practicable
ever since the 1st of March, but upon in
quiry of the postmaster at Eagle Patia it
ws found the United States Post Office
Department hail taken no measures for
making use of the shorter route furnished
by the International road, and that the
Eajle Pass Pout Office force was not suf
ficient to handle the American mail and
the European mail sent from Mexico by
rail. Hence the 3Iexican postal authori
ties were only able to nse the short route
to a limited extent, and though the force
in Piedras Negras office had been some
what increased it was found necessary to
retain a considerable force at the Paso
del Norte Post Office, since all the mail
from the United Btalcs and a part of
that to that country still continued to
pass through that office; but when Mr.
Bell, Superintendent of the Foreign Mail
service, announced, on the 30th of last
month, that orders had ben issued for
all th mails bound to Mexico from the
jfroatcr part of the United States, and
that passing through the country frwm
E'iropo, to be sent via Eagle Pass and
the International Railway, tho force at
the Paio del Norf.o office was very much
diminished in order that the service at
Piedras Xegras .might be made thorough
ly efficient. In other words the principal
part of the force at Paso del Norte was
transferred to Piedras Negras. Supt.
Bell's ordii have sot been obeyed, and
nine-tenths of the mails which should
come through Eagle Pass and Piedrns
Negras continue to cross the Rio Grande
at El Paso.
Mr. Nava says some little mail comes
by the fhort route through Eagle Pass
and Pie-iras Negras oiHce3, but that fully
as much is sent into Mexico at Laredo,
which is not yet connected with this city
and the principal points of the republic
by rail. In consequence of the Mexican
postal autoritirs acting on the supposition
that Supt. Bell's orders would be c arried
out, tmd weakening the force at Piedras
Negras, it js pow found that the clerks
in the last named office have nothing to
do. while those at Paso del Norte tun
ne t handle the heavy mails which con
tinue topass through that ofTc;.', appa
rently in violation of the orders of the
pastal authorities of thu United States.
The Americans of Mexico are not only
annoyed at the delay of their mail, but
they are m tifisd the whole troublo i
with the postal authorities of the United
States, wl'o will not avail themselves of
the new route by wlrch from one to two
days' time i3 gained, and this the Super
intended of Foreign Mails of the United
States hadjinnouuced with a flourish of
trumpets that orders had been issued for
the immediate use of the new route. The
most patriotic and euthusiastic Americans
ere compelled to admit on this occasion
that tho postal jjuflioritjs of Mexico
have shown theoiseire3 iaoe enterprising
and business like than thosa of the Unit

The Village of Cub a.
Cuban villages or pneblos have always I
interested me deeply. They are of littio i
importance as we measure thinps. There
le nothing about them in architecture or
human activities te make them worthy of
account. " They are seldom populous and
are never busy. In them and between
them, enterprise, rivalry, aspiration, are
unknown. But on this great earth are
not other spots so full of simplicity and
There are just enough people in them
to make human presence an agreeable
consciousness. There is never any labor
done in any way that tires. Nobody
buirius. There is no fritting or fuming
about anything. 1 Ko one is supposed to
be in haste. Nor could any such notion
ever come to surprise and annoy tho
mind. Every animate or inanimate ob
ject 5ems at rest. If yon desire to set
u Cuban village in an uproar of indignant
wonderment, yoa have only to hint of do
ing, oy of desiring something done quick
ly. Even the winds that bluty mpvo in
soft and soothing breezes, eloquent of llsti
less dreamfulness. The birds sing in
subdued notes as if half asleep. Univer
sal siesta rests upon everything. The
very air wings narcotic, and pulses balm,
to the sense and bouL Despite your own
contempt lor Cuban inanimation, after a
little, your best efforts are overcome; yau
yield to the Insensible sirens of scene
and scent and sound; and the enthrall
rnent possesses you wholly.yEdgar L.

HOW THEY DIFFER IN CHARACTER
ON CERTAIN NIGHTS.
Ronton' Six IHntlnct Classes of Theatre
Patrons Some Observations of an l.'x
perlenced Manager Saturday Night tho
Itettt of the Week.
Probably few theatro goers of this city
realize, as do the theatrical man.-iErers,
that there are in Boston six distinct
audiences of amusement seekers, and that
they have upecial nights upon which they
attend the theatres. So marked are the
audiences on different nights of the week
that one manager in this city has a name
for each night, which he lias given to it
mainly on account of the character of tlio
audience which he expects on that day
to see in his house. For instance, Mon
day is lithograph night; Tuesday, de
ciding night, or assistant critics' night;
Wednesday, train night; Thursuny,
"night out" night; Fric'iy, prr
night; Saturday, everybody's night.
Asked to give his reasons for thus naming
the nights, he said: "On Monday, unless
there has been a large advance sale or the
indications are that there will be a good
sized audience drawn by the special merit
of the performances, we prive out what
are known as lithograph tickets. These
entitle the holder to admission to the the
atre in return for the privilege he has
given us of hanging in his shop window
or in his store our lithographs and small
bills, or, perhaps, aro for the use of a
bill board in a good location.
ON MONDAY EVENINO.
"It is on Monday evening, usually, that
the theatres change their bills, and so
the opposition on that night i3 generally
felt more than on any other, and if there
Is room it is desirable to pay off tho lith
ograph or advertising debts on that night
in preference to any other. There are more
of these tickets issued than managers
would care to acknowledge, and they are
generally well represented on Monday
night, and so I call that night 'lithograph
night.' Of course, on Monday we get the
regular critics and the first nighters, who
are always on hand to pass judgment on
every new actor or play, but the dead
head is plentiful on that night, and I
recognize him in my nomenclature.
"On Tuesday night we can generally
tell from tho receipts how the business is
going to be for the week. If the house is
larger in money than it was on Monday,
wo assume that the performance has
pleased the public, aud has been well
spoken of, and that the receipts will in
crease nightly for the rest of the week.
Therefore I call it 'deciding night.' ns it
generally decides the business. On that
night, too, we get those who never attend
the theatre until they have iead their
favorite daily paper, and learneel the opin
ion of tho newspaper critic concerning the
play and players. These are the assist?
cut critics, and they are influential as a
class. Wednesday nirht is 'train night,'
because on that night the late trains
especially designed for theatre parties
were run and brought into the city theatres
crowds of persons living in the surround
ing towns. This namo is not so pei ti
uent as it used to be, as now on nearly
all the roads out of the city there am
trains run late enough to permit of out
of town people visiting the the:itre, and
reaching homo at a fairly reasonable
THE "NIGriT 0CTM KIGliT.
MWhy do I call Thursday night out
night? Well, I do not want to dispar.igo
Thursday night, for we get a strangely
mixed audience on that night, but we are
alwaj-3 certain to have a large contingent
of servants on that evening, as that, by
some unwritten law, seems to be the even
ing when the 'help' have their niht out.
The upper tiers av. always well filled oii
Thursday evening by stout, healthy look
ing young girls, accompanied by their
sweethearts, and I tell you they make a
ependid audience for the ordinary attrac
tion, as the illusions of the stage are to
them realities. An actress who cannot
make them cry or a comedian who cannot
make them laugh should speedily retire
from the business. On Friday we expect
to see the more fashionable personages,
on tbiit daj, (of superstitious reasons oi
for other reasons, there are are fewer wed
ding receptions, balls and social events
than on any other night of the week. Oa
Friday night we also expect to see a great
many of our Hebrew patrons, more than
on any other night of the week, although
they are great theatre goers, and are
found in goodly numbers on every night.
'Saturday night is the best night of the
week for many reasons, and the audience
is more mixed on that evening than on
any other of the week. The gallery is full
of working people who have been paid
their week's wage3 and are seeking en
joyment; the clerks and shopkeepers -are
there with their sweethearts and wives,
knowing that they can rest on Sunday,
arid the front rowg are fall of Harvard
students, more especially if there are
heathen gcxldesses on the stage. The
nearer the representatives of the heathen
goddesses approach the originals in form
and raiment, the nearer the students get
to the stage. You mustn't ask me why
this is. I only state facts. An experi
enced theatrical man, acquainted with the
city, could tell you what night of the
week it was by just looking at the audi
ence, if he had no other means of know;
ing.i' Boston Herald,.
The Best Window Dressers.
The other day one of these masters of
his art was asked: "Who make the best
window dressers women or men?"
"Men, by long odds. ' Women are a
failure at it, in fact. Strange, too, isn't
it, with the average American women's
exquisite taste in combining colors shq
cannot fit up a window with the resources
of a store at her command? I'll tell you
why. She cannot execute a general de
sign, and, not to appear ungalhint,
neither can she appreciate it. Stand with
a crowd of women in front of a window
which 13 worked into one grand design,
and you will find nine out of ten of them
have discovered each some particular
piece of statf that she iifces, and doesn't
see anything else In the window." Chi
