'his outlook, and he sought for some es
cape from a long life of struggle against
poverty. The Mexican war had opened
up Texas and the adjacent country ferset-
tlemcut, and Ilittseu made up his mind
te go thither te seek te better his fortunes.
He sold his Tennessee farm, bought sixty
cows and nine breed marcs, and struck out
into tlii'S wilderness beyond the TJrazes
river. lie employed men as fearless as
himself te help him, and established his
i-inche in a country liiled with hostile In
dians and predatory bands of Mexican
outlaws. Fer hc next fifteen years his
life was a continual warfare, and his repu
tation for bold and daring deeds became
known far and wide. He was a man of
commanding presence, a splendid horse

from a breech-leader, one of fhe first re
peating rilles ever seen en the frontier, and
gave them a dozen shots a minute, his en
emies were mere than ever convinced
that they were dealing with a superhuman
being. He carved out a grazing
place in this hostile country, and main
tained it against - great odds in tepcated
attacks. As civilization approached he
moved fm titer en te the frontier, and

are summed up all the elements of human
felicity health, riches, longevity, love of

" Leve one another." " Peace be te these

grazed his cattle up the Peces Valley into
Xew Mexico. His fortunes in this time
had many changes. The bands of cattle
thieves and Indians would sometimes at
tack and kill his cow-boys and drive away
the herds, but Ilittseu would rally a
mounted force, run down, and sheet or
hang the thieves and gather up his cattle
again. At ether times Indians would suc

I would nearly mill him. 15;tt at the end
el eighteen years lrem the time he started
out Ilittseu had 40,000 head of cattle. 50,-
uuu acres el land, and a long bank account.
Fer the past dozen years he experienced
mei e bad than geed fortune." Ten years
age he quit the Peces country, in New
Mexico, and bought 20,000 acres of land
lifty miles east of Denver, Cel. His pur
chase lay along the only streams in that
section of country, and the 200,000 acres
of adjoining land, belonging te the gov
ernment, was valueless except as a graz
ing ground for Hittson's cattle. He
stocked the ranch with 10,000 te 12,000
head of cattle and -100 te 500 ponies, and
employed about 200 men. All this prop

the property was made necessary by the
scries of costly litigations in which he had
become involved ever cattle of disputed
ownership that he had bought.
Mr. llittsen was in the prime of man
hood at the. lime of his death. He was
six feet one inch tall, straight, lithe, and
sinewy. He was a blonde in complexion,
and were his light-colored hair long. He
had a finely cut face, the striking feature
of which was the firm, square-set jaws,
which stamped him as a man of resolu
tion. His eyes were a clear, steely blue,
ordinarily pleasant in expression, but
dashing fire when he was aroused. Mr.
Ilittseu was usually a genial, companion
able man, but when excited by liquor, as
he net infrequently was in his later years,
he was a dangerous man te cress. He al
ways carried a pair of heavy pistols, and
they were used in a twinkling when his
passion was up. His cow-boys liked him,
but feared him, and his long battles with
the Mexicans eh the Texas frontier made
the herders of that race give him a wide
berth. His lifetime en the frontier had
made him a sort of law unto himself, and
courts and juries were te him slew means
of administering justice. He believed in
dealing with offenders en the spot, with
out any waste of time.
As a host en his big ranch Ilittsen w.t
a royal cntcitaincr, and no one who has
been his guest will ever ferg.t his gener
ous, almost lavish hospitality. Other
particulars of his death, .than that he was
thrown from a carriage by a runaway
horse en Christinas Day, have net been received.

Xew Ycar'a-Eve in Chinatown
On the last evening of the old year
February S in the Gregorian calaudcr
" Chinatown "' presented a busy, bustling,
wcitd air, which plainly betokened an
impending feast of importance. The sign
beards, with their curious hieroglyphics
well adapted for decorative effects had
gcneially been repainted and regildcd,
most of them being draped with bright
scarlet cotton cloth a favorite material
for festooning. Red is the Chinese festal
color, aud is believed te be efficacious in
keeping away evil spirits, and it is net un
usual te see btraudsef red silk braided in
, children's queues te prevent them from bc-
iuj; cub en uy malicious spirits, juany ei
the shops displayed withm and without
sprigs of kinkaa, or "golden flowers,"
which arc merely bunches of brass tinsel
wire and foil twined and cut into fWistprl
I forms ; these are principally used a3 offer
ings ueiore the ancestral tablet and m the
temples. The lintels of the doers, the
windows, and blank spaces en the walls
were already covered with new colored
papers, principally red and orange, of var
ious sizes, en which sentences appropri
ate te the season are printed. White paper
denotes that the inmates have lest a parent
during the past year; blue or
yellow signifies a second year's mourning
for father or mother; the death of
a grandparent is indicated by dark carna
tion ; but the joyous red predominated,
and mingled with them were many red
airi orange papers stippled with gekKThc
advertisement beards were freshly covered
with clean notices printed in the same
style black characters en red ground.
The writing en the papers pasted above
aud i csides the doers mainly expressed
eawn el a new
musical strains peculiar te the inhabi
tants ef'thc Middle Kingdom, "by crackers
bombs, and --.'lowers" (rockets, etc.). A
precession of priests curiously costumed,
walking in single file, with lanterns, made
a tour of the different temples, where they
were received by the lcsidcul priests.
Feed, incense, tea, printed prayers, and
mock money were offered te the gods, and
appiepiiate fare p:u taken of by their
earihly inini-s'eis. Generous hospitality
is the feature of the Xew Year season, and
there is a Chinese s-aying "that during the
fin-t part of the lirst moon no one has as
an empty stomach."' Catherine fiattlicin.

Theio has of i.ilc been het competition

are set up te be admired. They are virtu- '

they repel any male advances. Indeed, j
they .re net displayed with a view te draw r
men, but te please women. .Meet women '
are ardent admirers of be.uity in their own

fitted her tee perfectly net te have been
made expressly for her. It was of white
brocatellc and white satin, Princess shape.
The front was of gathered satin, covered
with lace and white-beaded embroidery,
and the train wasbrecatelle, trimmed with
plaited flounces, and edged with a coral
satin balayeuse. The coinage was cut out
square and the sleeves came te the elbow.
The necklace lay .showily en her dark, ricli
flesh, and her raven hair was bitishcd well
back from her ears, se that the glistening
pendants might hang in bold relief. She
was the centre of glances wherever she
went, and whenever anybody asked who
she was somebody was pretty sure te rec
ognize her as Blank fc Blank's clerk. She
will be discussed in society for a week,
and, no doubt, the advertisement will pay
