A CALIFORNIA CHILD.
THE KNOWING NEW YORKER.
Learned people who study ethnology
say that the formation of character and
disposition is very much dependent upon
our environments. In a country so vast
and so diversified as the United States
the people of each section of the country
have their own distinctive characteris
tics. These are seen less clearly in grown
people, who have learned more reserve,
than in children, who are lees reticent
and self controlled.
The child brought up in New York is
very different from tlio little Louisiana
boy or girl, anil the young Pennsylva
nian from either.
Look at this little girl. New York is
written in every lino of her body and
fold of her dress. She is chic and stylish
and she knows it. Just now she dresses
and lives very plainly, for she—or rather
her mother—in “quito English." Her
chief fare is. in consequence, oatmeal
porridge, cream, brown bread and but
ter, and occasionally a little bacon or a
His favorite food is fruit, of which he
eats quantities all the year round. Ice
and snow are unknown to him, for flow
ers, fruit and green trees meet his gaze
at all seasons.
He is the son of a pioneer, the young
est descendant of a “forty-niner,” but
he will see a very different life from that
his father had known. He will never
experience the rough lifo or eat the
coarse fare of tlie miner's camp, and
tales of such life will have as much nov
elty and interest for him as for any of
his little eastern born cousins.
His complexion is rich and peachy
looking, his eyes blue and his liair gold
en brown, touched here and there with
gleams of sunshine. Mischievous? Well,
a little. Not all the time, though, for he
sleeps a good deal, but that is about the
only time he is not either just beginning
a piece of mischief or just finishing it.
The last of these young Americans
might surprise his predecessors by lay
ing prior claim to the proud title of
American, for his ancestors for hundreds
of years past owned and possessed thia
great continent, hunted its forests and
fished in its rivers.

PLAIN, ORDINARY PAPOOSE.
She is a youthful member of the
Gotham Four Hundred, and some day
will make her debut at a Patriarchs’ ball
and be indorsed by the Ward McAllister
of the day.
She is a bright, sensible, practical lit
tle thing, and frequently astonishes her
parents by an unexpected display of her
varied knowledge of persons and things
fondly supposed to be beyond her ken.
Her greatest pleasure is to be dressed
in her best clothes and walk in Central
park with her English nurse, whose Curi
ous lack, yet occasional superabundance,
of h's is a constant source of wonder and
unfeigned bewilderment to her.
She is not a beautiful child, but half
unconsciously she manages to make the
most of all her good points and to keep
all her defects in the background. She
has been even at this early age to one or
two matinees, and talks quite knowingly
in her baby fashion about the theater.
Very different is this little Pennsylva
nian. She is demure, quiet and very
sweet—a wise, gentle wee girlie, who
He liimself was born on an Indian re
serve in Utah, but when he is older will
probably, like many others of his nation,
live in a state of discontent. He is that
rarity, a full blooded Indian. Not a drop
of white blood flows in his veins. He is
the son of a chief, and in a lew years will
be sent to one of the government schools,
where lie will learn all that his white
brothers do. He is a copper hued little
brave and has all the imperturbability of
More than tin hour ago his duBky
mother strapped him against his papoose
board and left him in it, resting againBt
a tree, yet he makes no complaint, but
looks straight in front aud blinks liis
eyes solemnly from time to time.
This is the first time he has ever seen
a camera or a white man, and so much
novelty is a Bevere strain even upon his
hereditary stoicism of demeanor. De
spite his best efforts a look of terror and
astonishment comes into his face as the
lens is pointed at him.
Thus it will be seen that our future
citizens are as varied in character and
disposition as the grand country that is
their heritage, and in this diversity of
temperament lies much of the strength
of tho nation. May all these children
grow up to be an honor and glory to the
