For a few min they will remain in this position one nudging the other occasionally but without saying a word and then riling they will separate and go their Way.

Deratany what in going on but in Point of fact the traders Are simply engaged in what they Call fixing the or bargaining by Means of a code of Mutual signs almost universally used by Eastern merchants who Are compelled to do much of their business in the open air surrounded by people who Are quite As curious about every affair in Progress As the principals themselves. The practice has occasionally been referred to by observant travellers though the signs them selves have never yet been described. They Are extremely simple few in number and easily Learned. To make a beginning the would be buyer opens the business with an offer to Purchase expressed by passing the Palm of the hand Sid Wise Over the vender s Knuckles. If he grasp the first or in Dex Finger of the seller fully extended the i ice offered a i of whatever the Coin May be in which tender is custom Ary in the Market.

Have had a Good May weddings recently in the neigh boyhood of Boston and other brides of High social position to been miss Whoie family u rather noted for its when the imitations for the wedding were sent out mrs. A., a woman who is really devoured by social ambition was not included in the Liston guests. She had met mrs x., and had somewhat Over stepped the strict proprieties of Eti Quette in the manner in which she had called upon the exclusive lady. Now she was doubtless much chagrined Al not receiving a card for the wedding which was to be a very Large one bin she was by no Means ready to abandon the Field. On the Dav after the inv stations went out mrs. A. Sent miss a valuable and Well selected piece of plate As a wedding gift. Mis-.x., in the privacy of k select Circle of inti mate friends declared that she would not have the present. It was urged upon her that Sho certainly could not return it. But i will not acknowledge declared angrily. She but then my her Mother said you will be putting in the wrong. You can not w rude and especially to a nobody like mrs. I Don t the Daugh Ter "1 will not invite tier. This is Lay wedding and i will have whom i Jrie ase. She can t buy an invitation with her Trumper old pres but of course in the end mrs. A. Was invited and she appeared at the wedding with the air of being the most intimate Friend of the family. It those who knew the Story but mrs. A. Is Clever enough to make the fact that wan there Tell for a Good Leal in her up tie Ocial Heights. A still More amazing trick was re sorted to by a Boston Ladr Winter to get to a reception where she wished to appear. She wrote to the to whom she had never even been pre John Brown s raid. Thomas Clark is an aged Coal Black negro. There is nothing particularly remarkable about his life to make him prominent in this nation of heroes yet lie has a history. When John Brown struck his blow at Harper s ferry he was a slave on a farm not far from the Arsenal. He was the first of the slaves and masters in the Vicinity to be arrested by Brown s party and confined in the old engine House. Seventy seven Winters have blown their fierce winds Over the old Man and though his hair is As Black As his face the Story of his years is plainly and quickly told by his tottering step and tremulous voice. The old Man was found by a Philadelphia Prest re Porter at no. 1289 Pearl Street. He has in Philadelphia about two months on a visit to de children his Home is at Frederick City md., where he is As Well known As the town pump. He was born a slave in Louisiana and in the course of his life was three times sold by the auctioneer. When the War broke out he did Loyal duty to col Aiken Gen. Hood Gen. Bragg Aud three other officers As Cook. The old Man s memory is not very Clever now. He never had any Edu cation yet has a wonderful command of language. In his old age his chief Delight is in looking at pictures in books and he takes a solemn Delight in telling his Little grandchildren what they mean. No lie said to a re Porter i most forget about the raid but i can t forget or. Brown. I often saw him at the grocery store at nights talking very serious with a few men about him. None of us Ever knew How he got his guns up there. I heard him speak once of twice. I will never for get the last words i heard him say. He said that there was one greater than he a coming he said he abolished when i was captured it was about two hours before Day. The Moon was out and i was going Over the Road to Wake up one of the men. Capt. Cook us they called him met me and told me to Stop Aud he told me to go in and Wake my Maste Eichelberger and the rest. I did so afraid to do any thing else and we were marched to the engine House. Among the others arrested were col. Lewis Washington of the governor s staff John Allstadt and Robert English. _ by its mild soothing and Healing properties or. Sage s Catarrh remedy the wont Cun of nasal Catarrh. Tip it the i grasped Between the thumb and in3ei linger Means one eighth More the tip of the Nail Only an eighth less. These Are the chief signs of this mercantile linger speech which can be made to indicate any numbers. For instance to express it is Only necessary to grasp the vender s thumb three times the hand once and then the tour augers together with a distinct single pressure. The mexican he Vincick. With a couple of straight poles Home made shuttle a thin slab of by Tivo Zapoli Wood Cuil a pile of Heni Quen leaves the Indian of Var Kuiv is prepared to accept eos Ilariu to for Ham mocks by the piece dozen or Hundred. The poles Are placed a certain distance apart according to the length of the Hammock to be made. The thin slab of Wood is rapidly fashioned by the Aid of a Sharp Machelte into a Stonkas or stripper. By tha Aid of this Stonkas the fiber of the thick Fleshy Heni Quen Leaf which is a species of Cactus is denuded of its covering and a Wisp of Hatch Kil or rasped fiber is the result. The hate Kil is bleached in the Sun and then becomes Soskil. These Are then separated into Small heaps con Taining about the same number of fibres. When the entire Supply on hand is thus Laid out the operator takes oat the fibres and with a dexterous Roll Between the Palm of the hand and the knee transforms them into heavy cords or Kuns As the natives Call them. Out of this Cord the hammocks Are made. The Cord is wound around the two poles which have been planted in the ground the work is turned Over to the women. They with their wide shuttles accomplish the rest of the task in a remarkably rapid and thorough manner. When a pile has accumulated the contractor comes around and gathers them up. The relations Between the operator and contractor Are very Peculiar Aud would exist nowhere else in the world. In order to get the hammocks Neces sary for his Trade the contractor must often pay for them months in Advance As it is Only when the natives owe Money that they will consent to work. La order to get a Chance to owe this Money the native will to furn ish the contractor whom a knows with a number of hammocks at a Tain time if the contractor will Advance a sum of Money. On this Money the enterprising native can live in idleness for several months. The contractor agrees to this. If to does t he can get no hammocks. But once the native Haa bound himself to Supply the goods they will be forthcoming at the time stipulated. Should death inter Vene his relatives perform the contract but this Advance system is a sore Drain on the contractor who is rarely a person of Large capital. He must of necessity accommodate the natives and he needs outside help to do so. This help he obtains in the shape of advances from the merchants in Morula to whom he turns Over the hammocks he secures at a considerable Advance Over the amount they have Cost him. These Merida in turn Send the goods to their new York correspondents. The hammocks Are carefully sorted in Merida before they Are baled for shipment to the United states which absorbs almost the entire production. Last year it amounted to nearly 000. All the districts of Yucatan pro Duce a greater or lessor Quantity of hammocks but the tix Coco District by far the largest producer sending out it is calculated every year As Many a the rest of the state put to Gether. The finest specimens of the Hammock maker s Art however come from Che Max. But few of these Ever find their Way to the United states. They Are so eagerly sought after at Home that there is no necessity for sending them away especially As Good prices Are realized on the sex. I Fautt without a in.
