Perhaps no race of people 1* les*
known or more interesting to thetetu-
dent and traveler than the Parse«* or
Fire-Worshipers of India. They are
delightful hosts, and, ns it was my
good fortune to form the acquaintance
of Sir Frumgee Demshaw Petit, who
was knighted for a gift of $600,000 to
an educational institution, I will en
deavor to describe an entertainment I
attended at his palace. Sir Framgee
lives in patriarchal magnificence, and
when his wholo fumily is seated at ta
ble they number fifty-five. W e were
roceived in the grand drawing-room,
as large as a fair-sizod church, and
presented to the ladies. Wo found them
protty, intelligent and vivacious, and
it Is no exaggeration to say that they
compared quite fuvorably with their
A meric- i sisters. The ladles wore at
tired i i graceful native costumes. The
dre .s consisted of a waist, such
i..s is u r n by Kuropeans, with a long
.. ari of embroidered silk, or crape,
called a sarre. wrapped several times
around the waist and fulling In broad
folds about the limbs in lieu of a skirt.
One end of the sarre was brought over
the head and dropped gracefully in
front, constituting a very effective
head dres3. Their jewels were mag
nificent. No crowned head of Europe
possesses their- equal, and such an ar
ray of diamonds, poarls, sapphires,
and emeralds can scarcely be imag
ined. Ono of the guests wore eight
strings of pearls, which far oxcoled the
celebrated necklace of Queen Mar
guerite of Italy. The state costume
of tho men is white, but on ordinary
occasions they appear attired in the
conventional evening dross. One pe
culiarity of their costume is not, how-
over, to bo mot lu a Ixmdon druwing-
never uncovor their
heads, and a high, conicul Persian
hut, or, at meals, a skull cap, ulwuys
On the occasion I am describing an

awhile upon topics ot universal inter
est, our host made a sign to tho serv
ants, who brought lu baskets filled
with large bouquets of Eastern Dowers.
Each lady selected one, sprinkled it
with rose-water from a tall silver vase,
presented it to the gentleman who was
to escort her to dinner, and then, tak

When tea was over wo wore taken

another Parseo house. The ceremony
was long and stately, all the dishes
were native, but tho wines woro Euro-
ponn, and this dinner, with that excep
tion, was representative of native
manners before they had roceived tho
Europeun touch. The ladies whom we
escorted gave us bouquets, as in tho
afternoon, and tho host hung chaplets
of white jasamines about our necks
and wrists. Tho menu cards bore
gilded crosts, and they gave us bon
bons wrapped in gold leaf to carry
away. It was a dream of tho East, but
tho porfootly-uppointod table, sur
rounded by intelligent men and grace
ful women, made it hard to believe
that the members of this refined so
ciety were tho Fire-Worshipers we had
been brought up to despise as huathun.

As long as there are post-offices,
custom houses, big bridges and the like
to build, the State of Maine is sure to
come in for a generous share of the
money expended in their construction,
for there is enough granite down here
to build a bridge to Ireland, and it is of
the very finest kind, too. Sections of
Maine's geological makeup are dis
tributed all over the country in the
form of magnificent public and private
edifices, and many a mile of metropol
itan pavement, as far west as St. Ixmis,
is composed of granite blocks from the
quarries of this State. l)ix Island,
Vinal Haven, llluo Hill, Mt. Waldo,
Gouldsboro and Sullivan, on the east
ern coast, have long been famous for
their quarries, and now Hollowell, on
the Kennebec, is becoming a great
place for the knights of tho hammer
and drill. Four hundred men are at
work there now, and business is boom
ing. Granite is being taken out for
tho Metropolitan Museum of Art and
American Bank building. New York,
and for the ten-story Bank of Com

the contracts for monumental and tomb
work now on hand amount to $100,000.

at work upon eighteen life-sized figures

I heard the other day an authentic
story of something that happened here
in Boston, which recalls an incident in
ono of Balzac’s novols and tends to sup
port tho old sayiug about truth and fic
tion. It seems that the wife of a young
man who bus u little house of his own
somewhere in tho outlying districts, tut
whoso salary is very small« fell ill, and
was unable to leave her room for sev
eral months. Tho doctor, ns often
happens, prescribed a great many rem
edies, tonics and beverages, such as
Apollinaris water and champagne,
which, being very expensive, woro far
beyond tho young husband’s means.
What could bo done? He was bound
that his wife should have everything
which tho doctor ordered, and, his purso
having been emptied, he sh>le out one
evening with the parlor clock under his
arm and returned with a livo-dollar bill.
A largo easy-chuir was oxponded two
days later for a few bottles of port wine,
and, to cut tho story short, by tho time
tho young woman was able to go down
stairs, tho rooms on tho first floor had
been stripped of their contents to pay
tho grocer and tho apothecary.
It must have been a bitter moment
for the poor young wife when she first
saw what havoc had been wrought in
her drawing-room, and I dare say that
for a few minutes at least her good man
felt that he had been too clever by half.
It must he aeknowl -dged, however, that
he acted pretty wisely. Health is more
important than furniture, and in time
tho household goods will bo replaced.
The plan which this enterprising fel
low pursued was surely hotter than
helping himself out of his master’s
cash-box, and perhaps it was preforablo
to tho ordinary course of running in
debt; certainly it was more original.—

soft enough to pierce with a straw’,

Separate Municipal Elections».
Without venturing to decide which
plan is the more desirable, wo think
thero is no longer any doubt in any im
partial miml as to the netnl of the pro
mised separation. There can be no im
provement in our municipal govern
ment, no relief from tlie extravagant
and oftentimes corrupt expenditures
which make life in our cities so enor
mously expensive, until we bring the
mass of voters to the comprehension of
two points: First, that It Is playing into
tho hands of the men who make tholr
living out of politics to allow National
and State political considerations to
enter into the choice of municipal offi
cers; secondly, that the burden of taxa
tion is not borne by the rich alone, but
largely by the poor. The voters must
think when they are deciding how they
will vote, not as to what the effect of
their ballot will be on a candidate for
Governor or President, hut upon mu
nicipal taxation, schools, police, pav
ing, lighting, street-cleaning, sewerage,
