A CREOLE MARKET.
"Marquli" Coffee Mob' Spletul
Coon Contagious "Dixie.'
It has been much the fashion latelv
to remark, in a tone of intense fatigue",
that the French market has been
vastly overdone. It is consoling to
reflect, in this connection, with one's
pen poised for furhther perpetration,
that the same languid utterance is in
variably upon the lips of socioty when
any leautiiul or marvelous, or enter
taining thing is under discussion,
iiuiu me luammotu uave to the coli
seum. I will spare you our emotions,
but nothing else.
"First," said Theophila, "to tho
Marquis for coffee."
We entered the nearest broad
roofed shed and pandemonium. Ab
solutely the only human creatures
not shouting, singing, beckoning and
bargaining, were the half-dozen
STOI.II) CHOCTAW SQUAWS
That squatted on the pavements in
the sun, with their baskets of gumbo
iilce and other herbs. They were
positively non-committal uion every
subject, especially that so dear to or-
uuiary iiuiuanuy nseii. mere they
sat and shook their brown old faces,
half hid in great masses of black hair
and said not a word at all. But for
Indian taciturnity, Creole volubility
niauc ampie amenus.
"(Jet down out o' dat!" cried a
Da:o game dealer wildly to a dead
rabbit placed conspicuously on a bar
above his stall, to the vast amuse
ment of the lookers-on. The fellow
worked himself into a perfect storm
of passion, and at every fresh invec
tive the crowd around him grew
larger and more appreciative. At
the same stall hung two skinned ani
mals of ghastly appearance and hor
rible grinning teeth. "Wild cat,"
said the dealer in response to my in
quiry. "To eat!" in horified amaze
from Theophila. "Yah, good eatin'
fo de Chinee!" he answered, with
the inevitable shrug and a quick
glance of impatience at our unprofit
able curiositv. These came stalls and
their swarthy, red-shirted proprietors
make magnificent studies. Kabbits
in hundreds, woodcock in festoons,
Spanish snipe, blackbird?, "kill-
allee," teal, "fine nice chicken
turkee geese!" even cranes, their
great white wings and long legs
dabbled in gore, are here exposed for
the gastronomic temptation of the
"What's this?" I demanded of an
old dame in a red sunbonnet, ginger
ly poking a very hairv, defunct ani
mal with my parasol, "a rat?"
"Mais, no'n!" she returned iratelv,
"if ever you see de tail rat vou know
vary well dat is no rat. Dat'is coon
mos' splendid coon."
The only dous in New Orleans, to
all appearances, hang about these
stalls, and the red fascinations of
these butchers. They are sleek,
meek, insinuating brutes, and readilv
accept the slightest suggestion of iii
trusiveness. The lish market is a
marvel of glancing color. Great
heaps of shrimps, snappers, catfish,
shecpshead, blue and brown intri
cacies of crab baskets, the gaslight
flashing uion the scales with the
most bewildering effect. And the
flower stands, each with its comelv
proprietress, who flirts in the mos't
undisguised manner with every buyer
of a button hole adornment. Dewv
violets, waxen camellias, starry jas
mine and the royal magnolia are
among her fragrant wares. And
she is everywhere the poetry of the
place. Her bent old grandmother
presides over tho vegetable stand
near by, teeming with lettuce,
spinach, parsley, a riot of greenery.
Listen to the cries, beseeching, ex
postulating, argumentative, chant
ing: "Get 'em for no monev" two
bits" "Calas, cal onlv a nickel!"
"Banan' banan' la bella banan!'
Beautiful banan', only five five cents
de noz!" "Achetcz ici au bon
marche?" and a long undertone of
unintelligible jargon, pierced bv tho
wailing song of a brightly tnrbaned
little gypsy with a face of abject mis
ery, the strains of many hand-organs
and the contagious "Dixie" of a blind
old negro fiddler. Stands of plaster
casts, of cocoanuts, oranges in golden
piles, figs on sticks, plates of peas,
limburgcr cheese, are here with their
energetic proprietors, whose faces
accurately photograph the success of
the morning. The sparkle and mo
bility of the dark-skinned Spaniard
whose "banan' " have sold wll i
only matched by the acute dispair of
his unsuccessful compatriot.
When we reach him at last, is among
the most radiant. Let who will dis
pute the title accorded him bv these
co-exiles of his for twenty years, I
for one am entirely disposed to ac
cord it and all the honors and digni
ties thereto pertaining. A portly old
fellow, white-haired, straight-nosed,
black-browed, clad in the most spot
less linen, dark blue coat and fawn
colored trousers. And the coffee
served to us with four-and-twenty
furclad Northerners all in a row, a
position strongly suggestive of tha
unhappy blackbirds of nursery fame
was unspeakable. For the sake of
the experience wo imbibed again,
that time taking tho dark brown in
spiration from the wrinkled hand of
another characteristic pillar of the
market, an old Creole uarkv woman
who embodied activity and crowned
it with a smile. Her zig-zag mouth
strayed happily across her face, an
ample nose flattened down over it,
but her wonderful soft dark eyes,
lighted with an irrepressiblejjaiejy,
and her blue shawl and knotted tur
! ban danced with eager service, while
1 soft Creole syllables fell thick and
I fast. The gas jet overhead flared
i across a marvelous chromo. the pride
of her heart, illustrating the intrepid
ity 01 a couple ot sanguinary mill
taires in blue and red, conjointly dis
secting an unfortunate prostrateman.
"Ah, ects ees beautiful ; don't you
tink?" she exclaimed rapturously,
seeing me tabulate her and her sur
roundings, and imagining, poor soul,
that I chronicled my impressions of
We strolled leisurely out I defy
anybody to hurry in Louisiana
through the tinning crowd of gaily
turbaned Dago women, soft-eyed',

"So you think that is a symptom

"I does, sab, for a fac'."

necticut. Three men were recently
convicted in that State of embezzling
the funds of a bank, and sentenced to
hard labor in the State's prison for
four years. When the courts become
so far lost to a sense of propriety as
to convict rich embezzlers, it is time
for the wealthy to look about them
