Stage Travel In Central America Indian
Way A IJvely Scene Irllnjj Throneb
a Town at Full Gallop A Tiresome
Ascent Down Grade.
I left Quezaltenanjjo by stage for San Mar
cos recently. The road runs through the
side spurs of the Cordilleras for thirty-sis
miles, and the up grades are so heavy that to
make any time tlio animuU aro whipped
along on every level stretch and sent faster
down hill, tho brake being applied only
when the wir,'on gains too much on the
horses. Tho team we had was mado up of
threu miserable horses, not more than four
teen hands his'', and one lazy mule of ubout
the KHI13 si?. The stagra aro canvas cov
:rel sin'ing wagons, seating four eoplo iii
tiide und ono with tlio driver, all seats on the
same level and cushioned with leather wtulVed
with straw, ai;l as hard as tlio boards under
neat It. Must of tho drivers are Mexicans,
wearing s:iiiilril-J and such clot lies as they may
liorrow. or steal. The dil'gence com
pany supplies a few extra pieces of chain,
leather, mi iiuai.'iise l:-.s!i whip, and u large
Knne. with which tho driver fashions the
leather to repair tho dozen or so break? of
the hiiriiL-ss in tho course of tho day.
The tirst town reached w::s San Mateo,
about two lcar;ii!,s from Qnczaltenango, and
o:ie league furtiicr on, as we iictircd tho foot
of tl:o moi!i.ia:i:s, we p :s-'d through .Sun
Juan OsUt.icalco, a 'pueblo"' of (u"J or TOO
souiA It was S o'clock in tlio morning
and the streets were tided with Indians
bringing in market produce, some carrying
t'.i 1KU itl b-tAi ts on ih'Af I r-i:l-:, but the
majority had thpir cargo?; 'n tlu' ir bac-ks in
what is called a "eanas'iu." This is a wcxiden
ii-ainework of shelve.-: fa -toned into four up
right pieces of vood :id still'ened with raw
hide thongs, I huso or ordinary size being
alKtut four foot high, thirty inc hes wide and
twenty inches deep. Cords around the bot
tom and middle aro joined to tho leather
headpiece, or broad strap, which passes
across tho man's forehead and sol ves to hold
the contrivance in place. The Indian, in
clining his body slightly forward, travels for
days thus laden w itb his iick of 150 pounds
so delicately balanced and ad justed that he
feeU iiu .xlss ni s.ti ain on any particular
point Many were driving goats and ehecp
in front of them, and others dragging them
with ropes tied around their necks.
The pretty, bright colored dresses of the
Indians added much to this lively scene. Now
and then you could see tiie entire family
bringing in the produce of their faru). tho
father himself carrying his load and driving
the "burro," so heavily packed that nothing
but the tips of his ears and his fet could ba
loen, followed t llti &tiuer yyliU abasket;
on bar baid tuul fb?younC.t strapped to her
back, with his legs dangling out of the folds,
of the shawl and his little black head peep
ing out of the top. Then come the two bo3a
both carrying loads; the older one tugging ut
a rope tied to the neck of an obstinate,
squealing pig, who wishes to go in any direc
tion but the proper one, and who is being
urged forward by tho younger boy, who is
laying his whin across its hind quarters at
every step. They seem to make but slow
progress, but they will reach the plaza and in
time for market hours.
Through tho main street of San Juan,
paved with cobble stones and filled with such
fe crowd, pur driver force1 his animals at a
gallop, urging them on with his w hip and a
shrill whistle, and being comparatively fresh
they responded quite willingly. The leader
with sleigh bells tied to their necks, warucu
all in odvauce to get out cf the way. Away
we went, bounding over the uneven pave
ment with a great racket, and in ways so
narrow that the crowd had to hug the sides
of the houses to escape our wheels. For blocks
in front you could see the Indians escaping
into the side streets when possible, and
though these people are subjected to the dan
ger of being run over every time a diligence
passes, they seem to bear no ill will to the
careless drivers. They have never seen any
other management of horses, and I presume
they think that this is the proper way to
drive. And besides, they depend on the stage
line for the execution of any commissions
they may have in tho neighboring towns.
Many times our driver stopped in the long
streets of San Juan, always a welcome guest,
dropping packages here, picking them up
there, and at every stop receiving his small
piece of silver and a drink in payment. Ho
took so many drinks before coming to the
hills that I begau to have somo fears for our
safety on the steep and dangerous roads o
Three miles to the north of San Juan the
long and tiresome ascent begins, and so nar
row that horsemen only can pass the stage.
The road is cut into tho mountain side,
many places in solid rock, in which, as you
go slowly ahead, can be seen many names
and prettily carved crosses; and on uearing
tho summit you see many wooden crossc3
planted on iho roadsMo, inscribed with the
names of the saints in whose honor they
were erected. Looking back, the entire val
ley of Quezaltcnango is spread out before
and about 2,00;) feet below you, and often
obscured by the clouds, for you are above
them and in them, and the blankets over
your Li:ee3 and your h-avy wraps do not
make you feel over warm. We were nearly
live hours making tho ridge, a distance of
about s-?von tnius. The mountain scenery
in tlds region U grand, bui any viovs, no
natter how beautiful, would beeo:uo monot
onous when seen from au almost spriuglcss
vehicle, riveted over a rain washed, rocky
ro;:d at a gr.lkp, accompanied by a Mexican
lrivei-'s y:lls and whistles, and the incessant
aappiug of his whip; so, at about 1 o'clock
w hen v.-e puiieJ up fct the breakfast station
i j a 1 jvely gveea mountain valloy, it wa3 not
-lie sticnJ "that pleased us, btit the relief felt
i:i irettiaj oat of that hard cushioned, wagon

Orelia Key Bell in Detroit Free Tress.
Conservative I dean of the Turkl!,H Wo
men Tlio ill as Stevens' Views.
In all countries the most conservative part
of the population aro the women, and par
ticularly is this the case in the east. ' A man
may change his religion, his politics, hisraco
and social prejudices, and sever his alle
giance to king and country, even in the Bal
kan states, where these mai ters assume he
roic importance. Tho Oriental woman, how
ever, opposes with a conservatism that is
sublimely tenacious, all change all progress
in these directions, and stranger still, all
tendency toward her own emancipation.
If a movement were set on foot to do away
with tho yashmak (face veil) and the life of
ceclusion led by Momen in Turkey, the
Turkish woman herself would oppose the
innovation stronger than anybody. She re
gards her position in society from a very
different standpoint to our ideas. To us she
seems a prisoner, fettered and, trammeled by
the chains of a barbarous social system that
persist) in treating her as an unimal who is
the pi-operty of her husband.
If we could wo would take her by the hand,
reniovo her yashmak, take away tho lattico
work from the harem windows, and give her
the same freedom as our own women enjoy.
We would introduce her to the ball room, to
tho drawing room, permit her to mingle and
converse with gentlemen and to- become a
social biiig. 'In doing all this v'e should, of
course, ' bo governed by the kindest motive,
no more, no less, than that of securing for the
Turkish woman social freedom and elevation,
and, ccnt(, according to our ideas,
increased happiness.
Nothing is more certain, however, than
that the Turkish woman would raise her
hands in virtuous horror at such a proposi
tion. She doesn't consider V;"-Sjiv a olavo or
a p'is5r,s; Ly ny mcaeS.1' felie believes tjjat
she ehjoyi ia fapjgreaterjaca-.;-- -J 7;cC(Jom
than, tho E-ru or American lady. The
barrier that separates her from the world at
large, gives her a little -orld, all her own,
to do as she pleases in. Whilst her more un
fortunate sisters of the wtstare forever under
the critical and censorious eyes of tho opjK
site sex, she is able to snap her fin
gers behind the veil of mystery that no man
dare lift without her permission. Not even
her own husband dare presume to violate
her incognito in public, nor dare he invado
her apartments, in his own house, without
permission. All this tho Turkish woman re
gards as real freedom, which she would in
no wise change for tho social condition of
the women of Frangistan. Our sympathy
for interference in her behalf she neither
asks nor desires.
But despite all this conservatism and aver
sion to change,' the Turkish woman reserves
to herself a woman's prerogative to be just a
wee bit inconsistent with herself. Change
she will not listen to for a moment yet she
has changed, and keeps on changing. But it
is only in the matter of indoor dress, only a
little matter of feminine apparel within tho
precincts of her own exclusive world. Here
tho Turkish lady has of late seen fit to imi
tate the modes of Paris and Vienna, whilst
for outdoor costumes she still clings to the
old feridji and veil. Thomas Stevens in
A Shoemaker's Bright Idea.

People are always on the lookout for 'snaps.'
If you can make them belie vo they aro get
ting something for nothing, 3-ou are all
right. I know a Bowery tailor who, by
guaranteeing to keep all clothing made by
him in repair for one year, has increased his
sales over 1,000 per cent. There is also a wall
paper dealer in Brooklyn who sells wall
paper at a price which includes the hanging.
For instance, if you buy one or more double
rolls of paper from him he will send a man
to your house to put the paper up. See tho
business done by that theatrical manager
who gave away deeds 10 California building
lots with every resell od seat ticket. The
souvenirs presented by our city piqnagers
is only another scheme for milking people
think that they are getting something lor
nothing. By agreeing to resole all shoes i
bought of me T niere divide my profits
with my customers, L any loss sustained
by this division is inoro than made good by
the increased volume of business done."
'Dq you make any reduction in price if a
enstom'er waive all claim to the repairs?"
"Hardly. I have only one price repairs
or no repairs. Yes, that is a good thoe.

On the Fourth Floor.
A New York coroner's physician remarks
that in his experience ho has found that more
people die in the fourth floor of a building
(ban any pi the others. In the cases of sud
den deaths he says that there are more which
take place on the fourth Boor in one year in
New York than in all other parts of the
bouses combined. Chicago Herald.

It ii a matter of question whether the
English domestic life, pure as it is, is of
purer quality than the (.k-rmaij; whether tho
English inenfo life is of finer strain than the
French; whether tho Swede and .Norwegian
aro not as manly, as genial, as true, as the
English; if the Italian and tIo Spaniard are
not of a more poetical sort; whether, in
short, there Is any jieculiar reason why t ha
English behavior aud thought should be
mado our standard rather than that of any
other people. Wo may bo told that some
reason lies in the fact that we tqieak the
same language; but when we come to coy-'
sider the matter of language, the question be
comes a still more open one. There isnot a
whole county in all England where the lan
guage is generally .spoken in anything ap
proaching purity; there is but one where it is
pretended that it is so spoken; there is no
region of a hundred square miles in the three
kingdoms where it is spoken with the purity
and perfection that is used, for instance, iu
tho state of Massachusetts, In our owu
country; and there is ueither rhyme nor
reason in the effort to impose upon us a
foreign vernacular, especially those portion's
of it whh have become the slang of thr
upper classes using that vernacular, in which
"nonsense" is called "rot," bad weather is
called "beastly," our own euphouioua "swill"'
is called "hog wash,!' unseemly conduct L3
called "nasty," and ieculiar people aro
called "rum ones."
It seems to us that perhaps it would be just
as well to follow our own methods and make
our own manners, suro that manners which
are gentle, cleanly and pure, and which hurt
no one's feelings and hinder no ones advan
tages, can only be right manners; that the
language of Shakespear-e Und the Bible, which
is spoken more nearly here than anywhere
else in the world, is a good enough languago
and form of speech for us, answering all pur
poses of literature and daily life; and that
eventually the English, if their insular con
ceit ever allows them, may wake to the fact
that the best thing they can do is to follow
our examplo in a few things, if not in all,
and setting aside written speech, which ia a
fixed quantity, correct their own spoken
speech by one that more closely touches the
standard of precision than is at present
reached by their own vernacular. Harper's
