Where And How They Live.
We leave Reading, then, the
technical extremity of the parent
road, and begin to travel due west
through the gently-Tolling farm
country of Berks andXebanon coun
ties. It is -not romantic, like the
valley of SchuVlkillj nevertheless, a
long continuous eminence called
South Mountain, bears up below us,
and keeps in. sight like a rampart as
we trace Jt from the car windows,
separating usJm Conestoga Creek
and its afihi&bts, and from the re
gion ot jpnrata and .Lancaster.
The towns lying on either side our
path are half or wholly German in
name, sometimes perpetuating
fondly the home-sickness of those
who called them after well-beloved
spots in the "Fatherland. Heidel
berg, Womelsdorf, "Wohlebertown,
lie around U3j and farther offin these
same counties .are Naftzingerville,
Rehrerburg, Strausstown, and
Milbach, which last doubtless was
originally Muhlbach. The people
who come fnto the cars from the
small stations are as strange-look-iug
as if from the antipodes. Two
or three women enter, gently-laughing
and hilkfng among themselves
in unknowable language, but for
all their gaiety looking as if they
have great need of protection from
the wiles of a corrupt world. They
are dressed in narrow suits of black
and Meep tunnel-like bonnets,
home-made bounets blick as
Erebust with an enonrous cape fall
ing over the shoulers, slats ol card
board &vrn into' the stuff so as to
form the cylinder, and the orown
gathered neatly to a button in the
centre. This kind of bonnet shades
the -rosy, laughing faoe. One of
them carries a boy, a chubby, apple
cheeked, blond-headed Teuton, in
whose pretty lips the outlandish
Pennsylvania Dutch is greatly soft
ened, and whose suit of clothes
has a general look of having been
made by Japhct's wife in the
ark. To protect the child and its
mother sits a simple, square-bodied
man of forty, with the red, innocent
face of .a.boy, a mop of touzled yel
low hair, apple-wood buttons, and
home-made clothes; he is more
German than a Berliner, for he and
his have been away from German
progress for centqrgg;,- linking- ike
stocks fherfi they were planted.
The goods' of tljis family are carrjed
in sack resembling moalbags.
Other passengers of the samo gen
eral appearance enter one an oid
man whose gray locks tumble over
his shoulders, whose long beard wags
like a goat's, and whose principal
garment Is au all-embracing a.rny
overcoat, T9SP elder personages
wftarjelt hats,' drab or brown, with
very wide brims curling up evenly
-a'.l around, and. feeeming to have
been turqeu in lames or run into
moulds like car-wheels. These are
the mild Pennsylvania Germans.

They are the natural enemies of

all our present panegyric, the bene

gives its truest welcome is the

Some of thee communities are
very 'ascetic. When the brethren

in 1730, they first lived as solitaries;

successful daring. I will narrate it
as, nearly as I can in his own words.
