gallons of pulque. It is drank by the whole

It is one of the most interesting sights of the
country to seo tho natives gathering the juice
the plant and conveying it to the ferment-
g houses. The plant is a virile, thrifty
owth, some ten feet in height, with largo,
a ted leaves, tho central stem attaining a
n this a cavity is hollowed out a foot or so
from the ground, somewhat as tho maple tree
is subjected to in Vermont during tho sugar
season. Tho juice from tho plant generally
exudes and is caught in this cavity. Tho
peons, lotb boys and girls, from 12 to IS
years old, are generally employed in collect
ing the juice. They have strapjed across
their shoulders a pig or goat skin, tannedgin
Euch a manner that it is pulque tight when it
i sewed up, leaving only an opening
nt tho mouth. and when theso are
filled they look for all tho world
like a young shote full aI fat. Each em
ploye has a biphun, which he inserts into the
juico, and after starting it with his mouth
inserts tho other end into the pig's mouth,
going thus from plant to plant until the skin
is fulL Tims it is taken to the fermenting
houses. When the article is finished it is put
into vessels containing so rye fifty or sixty
gallons each and transjxjrted, the most of it
to Meii. o Cy, but of course every city,
town and village, in the republic drinks its
proper proportion. When distributing it to
tho pulquaries they cart these hogsheads
about the city and instead of drawing it off
into some large x-eyscl they again insert the
siphon into tho largo vessel cr hogshead and
tho other end into the pig akin and thus dis
charge it into barrels ut the place of sal.
These antiquated methods still cling to the
Mexicans, und it will tako a long time before
they adopt a more rational aud easier way
of d jinj their labor. Another singular cus
tom prevail there. They have improved
abattoirs or butchering establishments, but
the way they dUtributo the beef and mu.ton
around tho town to the dealers in tyent is
most amusing. Tiiey employ a large mule or
horse, on which is placed a strong saddle or
framework, in which are two or more up
right wooden jxjst.s. In theso josts are sun
dry iron hooks, and on these the beef, split
into halves, is cooked. I have seen a horse
staggering under a load of at least three or
four animals. Of course the cattle are not
so large cs our native steers, and it seems
thej can carry at least a dozen dressed sheep
or goats in this manner.
In referring again to my original topic,
pulque, the plant is a inost wonderful and
useful natural product. Jfot only is this
large quantity of nutritious beverage made
from the juice. There is another and stronger
lriuk distilled from the leaves, and I Ixieve
from tho refuse from the pulque called talque,
which is much like our whisky when they let
it arrive at a sufficient age, but unfortunately
they drink it soon after it is made and then
it is a fiery drink indeed. Then tha leaves
nre used to thatch cottages and make a very
good roof. They make also a strong rope
from the fibers of the leaves and likewise a
good quality of coarse paper, and the root i$
used as fuel. Verily the maguey is a most
useful and wonderful plant. Mexico Cor.

Now few women seem to have hair to cover

Interior of m Celestial Eating Honse on
Mott fetreet The Stores.
Most Chinese restaurant are situated upon
the second or third floors. The following is
a description of Hong Vlng Lo's establish
ment n Mott street. Tho walls of tho din
ing room ore bung with long scrolls of Chi
nese writings, maxima from philosophers for
tho entertainment of thote who eat. The
Chinese are well educated jieoplo, and even
the coolie who coi!iKe the laundry clas
are used to tournament of poetry, debates
and other exploits in letter which in China
take tho place of prlzj flhU, bull ma'.chcs
and homo racing. Theso scroll contain Kueh
sentencus as tho following:
"It is only tho superior man who knows
what bo oats and what ho drinks."
"It is here that heroes met and sages
drank; why should wo abstain f
"What thy heart dcbireth may thy bauds
bo able to grasp."
"Muy you meet ono at the end of tho earth
anil find him a brother."
Upon tho ceilings dangle fantastically
painted great Chinese lanterns and flower
boskets tiiat resemble bird cage.
Tho rear room, which opens to plain view
from the dining room, is tho kitchen, which,
although overstocked with boxes, barrels,
tables and cooking utensils, is scrupulously
clean. Uikmi the walls and ceiling of the
kitchen are suspended fresh killed ducks,
chickens and pigs. At the tables are cooks
busily engaged at their work, some of them
earning large salaries.
Tho stoves, if they can be called such, ore
curiosities in themselves. They are long
ranges built of low, broad bricks. In tho
top are great pits, into which are firmly
built iron gridirons imported from China for
frying, tailing or steaming purposes. Two
of the brick ranges havo only open pits, and
there are places where the whole hogs are
occasionally hung upon iron bars and roasted.
They provide very quickly and sure facili
ties for turning out a large roast of any kind
iu beautifully brown and crisp style. Coal
is never umccI iu these Chinese kitchens; only
buy and hickory wood. Atr least five hun
dred Americans take their meals regularly in
Chinese restaurants in orthodox Chinese
fushion, with chop sticks. This may be
partly because Chinese diet is skillfully pre
pared, so that certain dishes work certain
medicinal results. Tho hygienic functions
of cooking elevate the kitchen director in
China to high social status. Many of these
Americans have acquired Chinese gostro
nomical tastes, and order dishes like Chinese
mandarins; but as a rule the keepers do not
cater to any other trado than Chinese, be
cause the Chinaman frequently orders $2 and
f3 dishes, while tho American seldom jays
more than fifty or seventy-five cents for his
Chinese dinner. Wong Chin Foo in The
Who la Most Cosmopolitan?
Taking it for granted that travel is essen
tial to perfect culture, the question arises,
"What nation is the most cosmopolitan?1' It
would be tho English, if they could have
learned that first principle of oosruopali tan
ism, namely, respect for those of another
nationality, and the necessity of judging
each nation by its own standard or that of
the world at large, rather than by a pair of
mental and moral balances which the traveler
carries with him. In this respect tho French
man, no matter how much be may be in
fatuated with his own country, is far more
geuercus than the Englishman. It would be
hard to find a more agreeable traveling com
panion than the intelligent aud traveled
Frenchman. The Italians are modest in re
gard to their own country highly appre
ciative of what they find good abroad. Tho
bonhomie of the Germans and Scaudiuaviar-s
renders their, affiliation easy with all other
peoples. The Russians are cosmopolite by
instinct, habit, education and travel. Jn
France, the readiness to appreciate foreign
excellence Is augmenting. Elsewhere in Eu
ropo it lias long existed. The spirit of an
tagonism to everything foreign remains
deeply ingrained in tho English ' character,
and w ill so remain probably for some time
Tha American character is receptive. ;
willing to imitate the good wherever found.
This is tho secret of our progress. It is not;
necessaj'y for U3 to go abroad to beoomo cos
mopolitan, our country i3 so brood and has
within itself such a variety of soil, climate
and production, and so many elements of race
and nation. Every foreigu people is known
to us without the necessity of going tq sto
the countries whence they came. Add f;p
theso advantages that the people of up
country travel so much, and we have reason
to hoie that if the true cosmopolite is not
already to be found among us tho time is not
far distant when wo Khali have all tho cos
mopolitan qualities that are consistent with
an honorable iatrjotisrn. San Francisco
Trying to Trick a Jewejer,
"Tho Ilellebush jewelry trick," said an at

tho diamonds, said, "They are very fine, and,
with j our permission, I will take them up

As he said this he held out his baud to

this year. Heretofore we've only had the
women. They're all right, but speaking can

on such intangible stuff as froth. It's differ

One of the large drug stores pays its rent and

thousand two hundred glasses ior day is per
haps the best business done in this city. This
includes all sorts of soft drinks and half a

spirits of somo kind in it. It's safe to sav, 1

lives. This mast be soi, because there, are
over COO fountains iu this city kept busy
during the warm weather months. Of courso
the number of tho all-the-year-round foun

"Soda water, as you may happen to know,
is nothing but pure water heavily charged
with carbonic acid gas. When properly

In a great metropolis like New York, the
methods by which people earn a livelihood
are immensely varied. An old man who
goes about from house to bouse begging for
old tin cans says he make; a very guod living
by roluag uut the sheets and then printmg
small signs on them. A New Yorker makes
an income of $10,000 to $15,000 a year as a
broker of manufacturing buildings and sites.
Perhaps the oddest trade is that of the man
who goes around to the ragpickers and buys
from them all the perfect paper &g which
they gather. Taper cags are so cheap when
new. that it would seem impossible that any
one could make a living from buying and
selling second hand ones. The demand fc.p
them, however, is yery gr$at among tha
small cui$ stanis which' are to be found in
all of the principal streets. These fruit
dealers, by the way. generally have a secret
arrangement with employes in the bag stores,
by which they get a generous supply of paper
bags in exchange for fruit. This accounts

can be seen an assortment of bags bearing
