natural that the Japanese press should
become tinctured with the teaching *

NEW OHLEANH , February 4 , Life
on a Mississippi Htoamboat ia monoton
ous. Winding in sinuous curves , the
mighty river flown through a ooono of
almost absolute desolation , There are
tbickota of cottonwood trees on both
Iho loir shores of the rlvor. Newly
formed bars are covered with a donco
growth of young trees not moro than
six or eight foot high , the growth of
the previous summer. As socn from
thu pilot house , the younft forests
standing on newly formed land pre
sent distinct terraced Unco , rising ono
obovo the other far back to the main
land. The terraces mark the annual
growth of the bar and of tbo trees
with which natnro socks to protect
the bank the river has created In
obedionoo to her laws. . At _ long in
tervals , plantations are seen on the
rlvor shores , At long intervals , ill-
built , foul-smelling , and dirty towns
are seen. At short intervals , on
cither bank are the shabby buildings
that are erected at most of the steam
boat landings. TheBo consist , generally -
ally , of a otoro and a dwelling
house ; occasionally there ia a email
Freight house , in which any goods received -
coivod for the planters that could pro-
sumab'y bo injured by lying in the
tnnd or being rained on nro stored.
Those landings usually belong tonomo
ieighboringprantation ) , and , if not
icoptby the owners , are rented toother
oarticji , who keep littloacockaof , cheap
goods and provisions nnd a foir barrels
) f mean whisky t ; trade fo the no-
; roos. Another source of revenue It
oil of 25 cents per bale of cotton or
leavy package , nnd 10 cants per hand
uckngo charged for every package
hipped or received. Many cf the
( Hiding whoee building ! would not
ell for $600 , rent for from $1OOD to
13,000 per year. .
Bick from the rlvor , behind the
ovee nnd beyond the forest line bor
dering the banks , are the houses and
cotton fields of the planter ? , Many ,
udoed most of thoao houses are far
inporlor to the farm houses of the
tforth , They resemble the summer
iqusoa built in thy country by rich
northern men. The grounds around
these residences are generally well
kept. Scattered broadcast ever the
laud are the negro cabins. These are
no longer built in long rows , as wan
the case in the days of slavery. The
now order of renting land to the no-
groca has necessitated the breaking
up of the plantation village.
The stories the pilots and boat offi
cials relate no to the swinging to and
fro of the river through the alluvial
soil , hero devouring land by the acre
and piblna by the score , and there
building up land and adding to the
acreage of plantations , are appalling
to men who have a firm bollof in the
stability of real estate At any point
on the river an old Captain or pilot
can tell , and truthfully toll , of great
cotton fields once cultivated over
where the boat la then moving. As I
atood on the deck of the steamer ,
watching a flock of wild ducks feeding
on a bar , a planter with whom I had
been talking touched my arm to attract
my attention , and when I turned to
him he\ said : ' < When I was 12 years'
old I killed my first bear on a new
plantation my father was then cutting
out of a forest that grow directly over
tho. waters of this bend , " indicating
with sweeping arm the waters wo wore
steaming over. Aitor n short pause
ho added : "That was a mighty good
plantation , and thete were n right
smart of bears there , too. " I looked
around In bewildered amazement.
There was a oottonwood-covered bar
on ono side of-'ho rlvor , and a. high
bank surmounted with largo oak trees
on the othor. I could BOO no sign of
a plantation. "Looking for the plan
tation ? " my acquaintance inquired.
"Yes , " I replied. "That 1,000 acres
of ootton land went Into the Mississ
ippi river years ago. Houses , cabins ,
everything excepting the personal
property slid into the rlvor and disap
peared forever. Those oaks" pointing
to the trees on the bank , " were two
miles from the river when I was a
boy , " ho explained , In reply to my
question aa to the valuoof the land ho
said : "When wo owned the nigger * it
waa worth 9100 per acre. " The loss
of property caused by the erratic
swinging to and fro of the Mississippi
foots np to an enormous sum.
During the season of ootton shipping -
ping largo steamers ply between Now
Orleans and "tho bonds. " The
steamers pool tholr receipts and dis
trict off the rlvor. The great cotton
producing region la "tho benda , " and
the largest steamers on the rlvor are
engaged in carrying the ootton bales
from that region to the expert port of
Now Orleans These steamers also
carry passengers. They are fitted np
very comfortably , and the boats are
far cleaner and much moro sweet
smelling than any of the hotels in the
lower Mississippi valley. These
stoamora are managed by black roust
abouts , who are hired in Now Orleans
for the round trip at a certain price
per day , which varies as to the cotton
crop. In prodnotlvo seasons , when
the prlco is satisfactory to the pro
ducer , and every landing Is crowded
with cotton b&les awaiting shipment ,
and every planter ia anxloui to eel ) ,
the boats are driven to thulr utmost
speed , and the work of the rousta
bouts It. most arduous. Then they
recolvo as high us $5 a day ; but the
usual wages are from $2 50 to S3 pei
day and board. The day is 24 hours
hng. A bout froitfittn ? from "the
bonds" to New Orleans during the
busy season carries about 80 rousta
bouts. Those men are armed with
cotton hooks , with which they handle
the cotton bales , two men to a bale ,
which they roll down the gang plank
and into the interior of the boat ,
where the hot air ia doubly heated by
the furnaces supplying hent to the
Immense boilers. The hold filled , the
ootton Ia plied , tier on tier , high above
the lower deck , and in some Instance !

wart men. They work under the di-
rootlon of the first mate , a whlto man ,
of oourtc , who has a gruff voioo and a
hickory club. They work on the jump.
They inovo on the ran. They are
iteadily sworn at , and the leant Biijn
of insubordination la promptly quelled
* < y the active mate , whom cotiatant
practice has made perfect in club ox
er cine. ThoBO mates are snappy ,
nervy men. Tney ate oftuu shot at
or otherwise injured by the negroet ;
but they iil ya "get away with the
nigger. " The cotton on a landlnp
atofrod on the boat , tbo gang planka
are raited by machinery , and , If
It is night , the electric lights nro
turned out , and the tired negroes fallen
on the cotton bales and are inotautly
asleep. Two , throe , , four miles , and
then the hoatso whistle of the atoamer
rpaonnds throughout the damp , heavy
air. Instantly all hands are on their
foot , alert and active. If It la night a
blaze of light ahoota forth from the
oleotrlo lamp1) , and all is light as day.
The boat swings to the shore ; the Im
mense gang planks are Iqwered. The
Instant the plank touches the land a
Bolumn of black men run np it , and
before the loot man has sot hit. .foot on
ihore the firat men are rolling cotton
bales down the plank. There la no
einglng over this work. The work is
too arduous to rejoice ovcv And
here , standing over thorn , is the mate ,
cursing and nervously owlnglng his

lated to canst ) a negro to burst into
sontr. The last bald on board , the

td roustabouts fast asleep the instant
.hoy 0trlko the cotton bales. Oh ,
low I pltlod thorn.
After the ntoatnor leaves Viokabnrg
on her down trip , no more largo
quantities of cotton are lakon on
joard , that district belonging under
; ho pooling .arrangements to other
joa.ts , The down trip is ono of idle-
io o mostly. There are A few mill
andlngs , where loan and apparently
empty bags are delivered to dirty look-
ng whlto men , the postmasters , pre
sumably. And there may bo a few
packages of merchandise or some
"plunder" belonging to black emi
grants to bo discharged or shipped ;
but of work thorn ienono.l [ | f After the
last landing above Now Orleans has
boon made , the roustabouts march to
the outside of the office to receive the
pay duo them for the trp. The bar-
tcocpor la in the office with his account
book. The mate is there with his
blmo book and' his club. Ho calls
through the open window , into which
many palra of jjblaok ojcs inquiringly
lee * , the name of the man on the
head of his Hat and the amont due
him. The barkeeper calla out the
sum the man owes him for whisky.
That amount is deducted from the
roustabout's wages , and the remainder
[ s handed to the mate , who counts it
bo satisfy himaolf that it is correct.
Then glancing at the negro whose
outstretched hand is thrust into the
office , ho drops the silver pieces into
his palm generally , accompanying with
a pleasant remark. Those mates
ibuiQ and knock the negroes about ,
aut hfj' see that justice la done .to
them , and they allow no others to
ibuie their hands. The negro grins
m reply , and hastens below deck. Ho
jlambors over cotton bales in eager
lasto to the moss room of the rousta
bouts , and there ho prepares to play
"craps , " the national game of Africa.
As the other hands are paid , they ,
; oo , eagerly clamberpvor the cotton
sales , and the game is at once begun.
"Oraps" la played with dice. They
are shaken in the closed hand , and with
a swing of the hand is opened and the
dice roll down the dirty table. Tha
; ame , I am aahamo to say , surpasses
; he mental power of white men to-
grasp. I met no white man who un
derstood it , and I utterly failed to un
derstand the explanations of the o-
groer. This la the more humiliating
M a "wild nigger , " fresh from an al
ligator awamp , thoroughly under-
itands the game , nnd plays it skill
fully. The edge of the fiery desire
that possesses all black roustabouts to
Zambia is taken off with "craps ; "
then Spanish monte and seven up are
indulged in , and the gambling never
ceases until all tbo money la in the
pockets ot five or six of the most expert -
pert Ramblers. Those men rush from
tha boat the instant it touches the
whaif at New Orleans , and haaten to
the lair of the tiger. When they es-
: ape from the clutches of that animal
they are penniless. The men are paid
uff before the boat arrives at Now Or
leans for the avowed purpose of
having them gamble and lose their
money , so that they will bo ready to
ahlp again.
Smoking is strictly prohibited out
side of the cabins on all atoamera
when they are loaded with ootton.
Preeminent in enforcing this rule are
the black roustabouts. Stories are
told of their throwing black offenders
Into the river for this wrong that endangers -
dangers the life of ov'ory ' person onHho
boat , The .negroes dread a fire I
suppose they realize that they would
have to stand back until all the white
people were rescued , and that their
chmico of escaping would bo very
small. I naked tha mate if his steamer
had over been on fire. Ho told mo
It had. I wai curious to know
how the blacks behaved in the
presence of so crave n danger ,
and inquired. "Well , " he replied ,
"tho lust fire broke out in the hold ,
canned by some dock passenger smok
ing. When the negroes caw the smoke
curling up from the bales they be
came panto stricken at once. They
rushed forward to where I was stand
ing , crying "Fin I fire ! fire ! " I shout
ed to the pilot to keep the boat in the
mlddlo of the river ; Ithen , turning to
the negroes , I told them they could
fight fire , roast , or drown. I clubbed
them Into oEedionca. In less than
two minutes we had the hose l Id and
four streams of water playing. I tool
nine bales of burning cotton out oi
- f 4
the hold and extinguished the fire in
lisa than ton minutes , How thoie
niggers bragged ! Whim they realized
that their lives depended on their
subduing the lire , they fought with
reckless determination. If the boat
had over touched shore , or even got
near enough to mtko the attempt to
swim to it through this cold water
probably successful , every man of
thorn would have loft the otenmor , and
aha would have boon lost. "
Tno mate left me. I wan alone on
the deck. I sat lute into the night ,
watching the waters of the river nwlrl
In tiny whirlpools or boll in vast Bub
bles , dark and clangorous looking I
1 stcnod to the myaterlons voice of the
flowing water calling loudly to the al
luvial tanks to rejoin the waters that
had created thorn , Obedielnt to th
colln , great ftlicuu of the bank would
fairly jump into the liver with a loud
aplaeh. I slept in my chair , and when
I awoke I was in Now Orleans.

Concerning the Prices , Hlzo and Style
of the Charmed Circlet.
From a Chat with ft New York Jeweller.
Are wedding rings expensive ) Well
no ; they vary In price , but the dearest
of them wouldn't break a comparative
ly poor man. This is the cheapest wo
h < tvd , fourteen carats and not very
thick , and it only coats $4. This again
is the most expensive I have in stock ,
weight tolerably heavy , yon sec ; is of
the finest gold used for manufacturing
purposes , twenty-two carat and costs
$15. Seems almost too heavy to wear
doem't it ? Bat a ring that would gall
and weigh down a woman's finger
wouldn't be unsuitable to oome mar
riages after all. Yes , I sell quite a
few of the cheaper ones. You would
naturally think that as a man only
buys one , or at most two such articles
in the course of his life , ho would not
mind spending a few dollars on it ,
But that's aonordiuR to how they feel ,
Some men aren't overburdened with
