Ii it h ii 1- tion from the Crescent Archdiocese^ Well, I am in Cincinnati now. I am regaling myself on equal rights and indulging in great big doses of social equality* I am breathing an atmosphere of pea e and plenty. I am n t afraid at all, to even expectorate in the presence of the decend-ants of the Norman robbers, Saxon carles, German burgomasters and Western bunco steerers. Anon I This is a beautiful city*. As I stand in the shadow ot the famous Garfield monument and look in every direction I see signs of busy life and the magnificent buildings reaching •kvward, are so muck more monu-ments of citizen enterprise, thrift and progress. I have found a friend in the i>er8on of Mr. Dan. A. Rudd. I have been his guest since coming to the city. He caused my coming here, on my way lo the Catholic Congress. He wrote me to attend the Congress and there repnsent the Mother Church, in the interest of the race in the Southland. Oh no ! but he was the indirect cause of mj coming. How ? Well, it is not a long story. I    t. For years Mr. Rudd has represented the best thought of the Catholio Afro-Atncrican on the Catholic Church extension. He has tor ^ean w hose ordinary tells us that amon^ his spiritual children he numbers 80,00J of our race. Mr. Kiidd is accused of trying to draw the color line in the Catholic Church. This young mun's work is a part of history. His battle against the Ohio Black Laws, covering a period of twelve years, has made his name a household word in the Buckeye State, and to him as much :i8 to any other one man is due the honor of victory. Colored Catholic Churches are only i-o in name; for there are always more white than colored communicants in attendance, and the Negro can enter every other Catholic Church beneath the sun. The injustice of thi<« assau’t on Mr.; Rudd, is what drew my attention apd thought to the importance of promoting ‘ Catholic organization among the members ot ihe race. The injustice of this attack oa the mo* tives of a man who for years has sthod forth as a most courageous and manly exponent of race pride, is is too obvious to call for further comment* Surely, the cause represented by Mr. Rudd is worthy of the best brain and unselfish support of every Colored Catholic in the United States. REVBRIB. For years I have been a reader of T. T. Fortune of New York. I have read his editorials in the Globe.

All the love inalcin" in South America must 1)0 carrietl on through a third person If a 5’outh desires to marry he does not speak *)f it to the girl whom he wishes for a wife, but to his own father. The latter, if he approves, goes to the father of the young la<ly and the two discuss the matter together. Each tells the other what he will do for the young folks, and l>etwecn them a contract is drawn up respecting settlements and all such tilinga ■ •* The intending bri*iegroom is not permitted to sec his fiancee for a moment before the wedding. As soon as that event has taken place there is a wedding-breakfast. and, usuall.v without the formality of a preliminar.y tour, the couple settle down to living, cither in an establishment of their own or more often in the house of the parents of the bride or the groom. One drawback about marriage in South America, saj s the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette, is that in taking a girl to wife it is apt to be considerqd a matter of that the young man marries her whole family also, lie has no occasion for surprise or disgimntlement if. together with his bride, fifteen or twent.y people come to share his household and domestic comforts, including all her available relatives and their servants. These Latins arc a very clannish race, and a father is apt to be willing to adopt a raft of sisters and cousins and aunts, not to mention a mother-in-law, rather than have his son or f’aughter leave the family roof. It is due to the .strength of family attaehment among them I'.iat hot"Is in South .America are only for strangers íi>*m afar; the native's always lin*l hospitable entertainment among t!ie kint’red.

IMPROVISING A DRESS SUIT.

When the evening came I took the hifli*' > ar.nind and walked in at the <loor But I did not get far. “ ‘You cannot come in here,’ said the doorkeeper. “ ‘Wliv not?’ I asked, in i^urprise; ‘here are my seat tickets.’ " 'Well. 3'o4i cannot enter,’he replied, decisively; *yonr e*)at is a frock, and nothing but *ln'ss suits are allowed.* “I exp()stulated. I told him that my hotel was a long way olT and that the ladies would b • greatly disappointed. I was an American and did not know the rule of the theater, “Finally he told me to go into the dressing-room, where the attendants might be able to fi.x me out all right. “I went, e.x]x»cting to pay two or three crowns f*>r the loan of a coat. The fellow looked at me a second» whipped a pin from his lapel and pinned my coattails back, and I found myself in evening dress! “I gave the man half a crown.’* I Ready-Made Clothes. In spite of the marked improvement in the method of cutting ready-made" oloike.s, men above si.x feet in height still find it exceedingly difficult to be fitted in made-up garments. There are’^ plenty of coats and trousers for men >7.‘,th abnormal abdomens, but very few-coats áíid t**ouser.s for men with" unusually long legs íínvl Yvrms. The shirt-makers pay no lieed to any measurement save that of the neck, and the six-footer whose neck mcnisurement is below sixteen inches finds the sleeves of the ready-made shirt nearly half way to his elbows. Shoemakers do better. A man wearing a sh.H* anywhere belOw eleven may be fitted at almost any price. The cht'apesl shoes, though running as high as twelve, are neariy all too broad for slemler feet.

One of the farmers living not far from this city, says the Kansas (111.) Journal, is never idle when there is anything to do, and was greatly annoyed one evening lately on learning that through some mistake in his calculations he had lost an entire day's work on his farm. Through .some unknown influence he awoke on Friday momingf^ with the idea that t ho day was Saturday firmly impressed on his mind, and ti>*i children were kept out of school aud all of Saturday’s work done. Satn-urday morning, the family, after tbn necessary work had l:>een performed, put on theii* best clothes, and the day was given over to rest and quiet. Occasionally a neighbor would pass witb a wagon laden wit’n corn or some other marketable product, and the object o€ our sketch, who believes that six dajns* diligent work should be followed day cf rest, would breathe a silent prayer for the full forgiveness at his Sabbath-bi-c-aking neighbors. Thus matters quietly proceeded until in the evening, when one of the neighbor’s children bappcned in, and being struck with the Snbbath-like appearance oi everything reine.rko*!; “What’s tbe matter with you folks? Vv^hat are yom all dressed up for? This nin't Sunday.** Our friend was di-.mfounded when 1m learned thot*1ie had lost an eritire day*a work, and, cxoui.irg hiinsolf to the young lady, he hustled oir. changed hi» Sunday <'lotlics for his every-day apparel. and piteliod into the work, endeavoring to inaho np for lost time. i True;: IN ALL TRACIES.
