OLD AZTEC SPRING.
Discovered Two Centuries after It
There is a curious mingling in
Santa Fe, New Mexico, of the con
servative and the progressive. For
the go-ahead American spirit is not
infrequently held in check by the
slotii wnich dominates the descend
ants of the old Mexican or native
races, and the element descended
from the Spanish settlers. Hence it
is, that, despite its magnificent
climate, said by many physicians to
be more beneficial to consumptives
than that of Flordia, and numerous
other natural advantages. Santa Fe
has not developed as rapidly as other
places less favored by nature. A
good instance of the lack of enter
prise in what has been aptly termed
the medireval conservatism of the
native and Latin population is found
in the fact that, although tradition
has long located in the neighborhood
of Santa Fe a mineral spring of great
curative power, said to have been
known to the Pueblo Indians more
than two centuries ago, and famous
in Aztec story, it remained a tradi
tion from tho date of uprising of the
Pueblo Indians, in 16S0, until re
cently, when it was rediscovered by
Captain John Ayers, who is in the
office of the chief quartermaster for
the District of New Mexico.
The tradition concerning the
spring, which disappeared in 16S0,
to be rediscovered in 18S5, is in
teresting. Long before Europeans
set foot in New Mexico, stories had
reached the viceroy of Mexico of the
"white and bright land," as what is
now New Mexico was then called.
These stories told of silver and gold,
and of mineral sprincs of marvel
ous curative power. Less than a
decade after the conquest of Mexico,
Cabeza de Baca and his party of ex
plorers were wrecked on the gulf
coast, and started out to find their
countrymen in Mexico. During tho
weary wanderings of this stout
hearted and persevering party, says
a writer, they penetrated to the
heart of the continent, nearly twenty
degrees of latitude north of the city
of .Mexico, and nearly the .same dis
tance north of the last settlement of
the Spanish colonists. And thus it
was that the first Europeans set foot
upon the soil of New Mexico, and
gathered information which, when
reported to the viceroy of Mexico,
confirmed the wonderful stories and
traditions that had been previously
related of that "white and bright
land," and set on foot the expedi
tionsof Niza, Coronado, Ruiz, and
Espejo. After these expeditions,
stories of the mineral springs were
brought to Mexico by Jesuit priests
and Franciscan friars. The Span
iards resorted to the springs until
Aujjust 10, 1GS0, when the Pueblo
Indians rose in revolt and drove
their Spanish oppressors out of the
country. As the surest method of
preventing their return, tho Indians
destroyed everything on which tho
Spaniard? had most set store. They
filled up the shafts of the mines and
covered up the springs. Thus tho
mines and the springs gradually
passed into tradition. Tho mines, as
all know, were worked again some
time before now, but the Aztec spring
had remained a myth.
Captain Ayers heard the legend
and became interested. He ex
amined carefully the history of the
setlement of New Mexico, and con
cluded that there was a good deal of
foundation of fact for the story of tho
spring; and also that it must have
been located in the neighborhood of
Santa Fe. He at once began his ex
ploration for the spring in spite of
the poopoohing of loss sanguine
people. Arguing that if it were sit
uated along tho most frequented
roads leading from Santa Fe, people
would probably have stumbled upon
it. despite their disbelief in its ex
istence, he selected for his prospect
ing the least traveled road, and
made examination of the country on
either side of it, going out further
upon the road everv day. He found
little to encourage him until one day
when be reai-hed a point in tho road
about three miles from the plaza, he
came upon a mesa, along which a
path miuht easily have led. Follow
ing up the mesa he came suddenly,
when a mile from the road, upon'a
stream flowing out from among rocks
and stones, traversing for a very
short distance a bed of stones and
pebbles, and then suddenly disap
pearing down a crevasser. Captain
Ayers noticed that the stones and
pebbles were mineral stained. For
several days he made experiments
with the water, finding out that
clothes could be washed clean in it
without soap; that on washing the
face and hands in it, they would feel
soft and cool for hours; and that
from day to day it preserved a uni
formly warm temperature. This last
led him to the conclusion that the
water came from a great depth and
from a hot spring, whose water was
cooled in flowing from where it bub
bled up to its exit from the mountain
side ; and that should an excavation
be made along its course, until its
head were reached, the temperature
of the water would be found to be
much higher opinions which have
been confirmed. Toledo Blade.
Good wigs of white hair cost about
$40 each. They are made, it is said,
of goats' hair or of that from the
Angora rabbit. If they were what
they are sold for, real human hair,
each one would coat at least $1,000.
An Ideal Wife.
I can hardly wait to tell you what
a lovely wife Mark Twain has. It is
a relief when we know a genius to
whom a whole continent is indebted
to find that his wife is an ideal wife
for any man. I cannot be trespass
ing on sacred ground, for does she
not belong to us? when I tell yon
that she is young and pretty, with
black, lustrous eyes and a pervading
air of refinement and delicate breed
ing that proclaims her, as sh'e is, to
the manner born. Of course Mark
Twain knew when he was a pilot on
the Mississippi that it was but one of
the vicissitudes of his varied career,
as was also his after-experience in
mining camps. Doubtless ho had
his idea of a wife even then, which
he found realized long afterwards in
this attractive, high bred girl, of
Elmira, N. Y, He follows Stuart
Mill and manyiof our own illustrious
men in saying that he owes his suc
cess in life to his wife. It is a delight
to see her h'appy eyes dance as mer
rily as any one's over the quaint
speech and irresistible stories of her
husband. And then their three chil
dren, each one with so much indi
viduality such gentlo reproductions
of their mother. They already write
as naturally as they talk. Notwith
standing their frequent letters asid
the telegrams, Mrs. Clemens eagerly
reads, nothing could keep her long
away from them. Mr. Clemens savs,
"My wife can trust Providence just
about forty-eight hours no longer."

A YFondcrful Pond.
One and a half miles east of Oxford,
Ala., near Choccolocco Creek, .is a
remarkable curiosity in the shape of
a pond. About it cling several mys
terious traditions. Its margin forms
a circle whose diameter will measure
130 yards or more. Its depth no
man knows, as it has defied all
sounding. Its water is a3 clear as
crystal and the heaviest rainfall can
not muddy it, save for a brief space
around its edges! It never rises nor
falls, but in floodand drought, winter
and summer always remains tho
same. It has ever been a favorite
resort for bathing purposes, its sur
face water being at this season very
genial, but a few feet down it Is al
most ice cold. It is full of fish, but
they cannot be inEtrccct to notice a
bait, however enticing. I have been
told by parties that they had seen a
peculiar kind of spotted fish in this
pond that were as large as a grown
person, and, apparently, without
scales. About twenty yards from the
southeastern shore stands the rem
nant of the trunk of a huge pine tree.
It is only a few feet out of the water,
and stands almost perpendicular,
like a fisherman's cork. Often while
in swimming I have seen a crowd
of boys get on this trunk and sink it
entirely out of sight, the tree always
remaining perpendicular. The tree,
from the force required to sink it,
must be 75 or 100 feet in length.
Tlie Tailed Man of 1'uraruay.
If the Emayo Medico, of Caracas, a
journal unearthed by the Lancet,
may be believed, tho seeming im
possibility of a tailed man need no
longer prove a stumbling block to
tho faith of would-be evolutionists.
In the last issue to hand of this print,
the following paragraph occurs :
"Thero has just been an interest
ing discovery in Paraguay of a tribe
of Indians furnished with tails. One
day a number of workmen belonging
to Tacura Tayu were engaged in cut
ting grass, when their mules were
attacked by Guayacucan Indians,
anil some of them were killed. The
workmen pursued them, and suc
ceeded in capturing a little boy of
eight years of age. He was taken to
Senor Frincisco Golrochoe at Pose
day, and it was then discovered that
he had a tail ten inches Ions. The
boy nay3 that he has a brother who
has a tail as long as his own, and
says that all the tribes have tails."
There are clearly no half measures
about theso tails, and if boys of
eight have them ten inches longthere
is no saying what may be the length
of the tail of a full grown man. It
would have added, tof the interest of
this information if we had been
further told how the tails are 'worn
whether proudly aloft like "that of a
colly or in the "downcast manner of
a cow. Pall Mall Gazette.
