Hlitory of What WM Once • Fowertal Kl»*do>n-Lei-end» of the Wl»« »nd 1 BraT« Qaeen T»m»r— Aa Arme- nUn • On« Hundred Thousand Now Dwell in This Country. [Special L,etter.1 Living amongst us and beginning to exercise some influence by their numbers, their Intelligence an* their un- uisual talent iorbusiness and lor amass- njr wealth, are thousands ot Armenians. In New York and Chicago alone, t is estimated, there are about 15,000, and in tho whole of the United States hoir number will not fall short ot 00,000. "Armenians? \Vhatarethey? What country do they hail from?" These and similar questions, clearly proving tho most complete absence of acquaintance with this interesting race, I have often heard. And it it no A TYPICAL ABMENIAN. wonder, lor up to recently Armenians were not in the habit of emigrating 1 to this country, and the facts I am go- in<r to cite further on will explain how it comes that the world at large does not know much of this people. For the Armenians somewhat resemble the Jews in this that they are a race, but not a nation, being also widely scattered and leading no independent political existence, Like Poland, tho territory once occupied by tho Armenians under rulers of their own has been parceled out to three powers—tho eastern districts belonging to Persia; the northern to Russia, and the largest portion, the western, forming part ol Asiatic Turkey. Erivan is the capital city of-Russian Armenia, while Erz- erum is that ol the Turkish, part and Tabriz that ol the Persian. How large the number of Armenians is to-day is not definitely known, but it is probably not less than 10,000,000, for besides the wholly Armenian population of those three districts—together tho size of France—there are thousands and scores of thousands of them to be lound in other parts of Turkey, Russia and Persia, aud their influence is very strong in all those countries, by reason ol their superior. Intel:- lectual gifts. As financiers and'"administrators especially they are eminently successful. Of late years the Armenians, conscious of their ancient civilization, of their Christianity and of their superiority in both ethical and mental respects, have shown an increasing restlessness under tho yoke of their Moslem conquerors, and are anxious to reestablish their national independence. The horrible persecutions and tlie despotic oppression they have to undergo at the hands of the Turks especially luivo made this resolution stronger and stronger, and the fearful conditions under which they have tolivu at home have also induced them to emigrate in lurgo numbers to this country. It would not be the proper caper to write here a history of Armenia, but I will brielly outline its pas't at least. Armenia was for many years a 'great and prosperous kingdom, extending from the lilack to the Caspian sea and taking in some of the most fertile and renowned.districts of antiquity, being watered by the Araxes, the Tigris and Euphrates of old and producing on its volcanic soil nearly everything that a "benignant sun can ripen. Mount Ararat lies in the heart of tlie Ar- QUEBN TAMAP. roenian mountain ranges, and its highest peak, tho Mustiis, after lying dormant for centuries, resumed its volcanic activity in 1840, and during that eruption the'village of Argoorz, where tradition has it Koah planted his first vine, was destroyed. Armenian history goes far back—to 2,500 years B. C., and 428 of our era they preserved their national integrity against all conquerors. Ino two dynasties of the Haighians and of tho Arsacides were flourishing during this long period, and then came the Persians, the Greeks, the Arabs, the Turks, the Tartars, who ravaged the country by turns and made it a meve dependency. Armenia had another period of prosperity during the time of the Crusaders, from 1086 until about 1800, the most brilliant epoch beinff that of David the Bestprer, and of nit beautiful dawrlitor. Queen Tamar. Che litter occupies in the legendftry lore of the Armenians as prominent a }laoe as'King Solomon among 1 ; the Jews, and Rome noerns and hymns composed by her still survive. She was lot only a wise and just ruler but also a. great warrior, defeating armies of Turks and of Russians in turn. That, nowever, was tho last brilliant point .n tho history of Armenia. From that time on—some 600 years—tho country languished and decayed, the prey of lier Moslem neighbors, until the last remnant of Armenian independence was swept away in 1800 by tho cession of her Caucasian territory to Russia. As 1 noted above, however, tho Armenians of to-day dream once more of the restitution of their national independence, and it is quite likely that they will ultimately achieve It. Tho Armenians of the present time are a people who are physically strong and enduring, generally of regular features, dark-eyed and dark-haired; during their youth the girls and women are apt to be beautiful, but they wither and age very quickly, so that at 25 they are like our women of 50. The men wear better. They are of Christain faith—a type of the Greek-Catholic—but missionaries have been converting quite a large fraction of them to purer and simpler forms ol Christianity, They are progressive, enterprising, industrious, endowed with great mental gifts, so that in Russia and Turkey there is an exceptionally high percentage of Armenians among the highest oflicials. Their commercial instinct is very strong, and they make the most successiul dealers and merchants everywhere, outstripping even the Jews wherever they come into competition with the latter. Their morals are good, and their family life is happy and peaceful. They are patient, having become so in the school of adversity, and know how to dissemble when necessary, and their apparent humility is. in fact, their chief strength. Araonfr their virtues is hospitality; and I remember with pleasure a wedding festivity in an Armenian household at which Twas an invited guest. The bride, a young girl of 14, but perfectly developed, looked a charming picture. Rather small in size, but of a delicate complexion, magnificent teeth, and hair that was silky and profuse and of beautiful shade, she was attired in a cubit (a long, flowing robe) of atlas, and a sort of vest, made of white silk and embroidered with gold, was visible at the neck. A long veil (ktr.haki) of tulle and embroidered with gold and silccr was held around her head by that handsome -diadem of the MUSICIANS. young A-.-menian ladies which thoy call (Jm'fiacram. Musicians played on queer instruments, tlie daira (a species of drum), and the Fourna-(a, kind of flute), and there .was some dancing. but dancing of a style not soon elsewhere—the (Jarlottri and the lenginka. The most extensive hospitality reigned —sweets of every kind, meats and other solid food, wine and sherbet were dialled out to whomsoever wished any. There were singing and conversation, and outside the broad veranda and the garden paths wore brightly illuminated, and then everybody went to church and witnessed the ceremony, a much more symbolical and impressive one than our wedding ceremonies. Ihit then, there is no divorce in the Armenian church, and hence they deem no expense too largo for the one great event of their lives. Wor.r V Depends on the Point of View. "It beats all how the gum habit is grow ins-," the passenger ' n t ^ ic snu ^" colored suit was saying:- "There are not less than half a dozen young women in this car chewing gum." • "I see," answered the passenger with .the -heavy gold watch chain. "Well, I can say ono thing: I never chew It." "Neither do I. It's a detestable habit." "It is indeed." , "And it doesn't do anybody any good. It's not only offensive but utterly profitless." "Profitless? I'm not so sure or that. By the way, I am just starting with my family for a tour through Europe, We shall be gone about six months." "What has that got to do with the (rum-chewing habit?" "Nothing, except that I'm the proprietor of « chewing gum factory."— Chicago Tribune. _ __ —The experiment of shipping butter from Australia for the 'English market was successfully made a few months B( «> and a considerable trade ha» resulted.

The most primitive forms of cooking are tho methods still most generally practiced. Uroiling, roasting and boiling are to-day the commonest ways of dressing meats for food; but between the manipulation of the crude housekeeper and that of the thoughtful housewife whose eye, hand and nose have been trained to understand that heat means variations of temperature and not merely "a fire," 'there is a broad gap. The first lesion of the cooking school is necessarily the care and management of the stove. One woman will boil her corn beef in water at two hundred and twelve, its maximum temperature, while she whose observation has been cultivated to study effects, obtains better results at one hundred and eighty. The former wastes part of the gelatine and albumen, while her rival has learned that as albumen coagulates at the lower temperature, very little waste occurs and the meat is not touffhened. On the same principle of action the gas stove and the charcoal fire are so perfectly controled that the broiling of steaks, chops and sausages may be accomplished with tlie least loss of fat and the best result in tlie work. The frying pan requires perhaps more skill than any other utensil of the kitchen since control ot heat is everything. For veal cutlets, sweetbreads, calve's liver and other delicate cooking, the proper degree of heat to cook through the ilesh and to give the right tint of color are of primary importance. No less important is it that heat be moderate iu its action ou tlie egg and bread crumbs coating the cutlets, since if the temperature be too high our savory dressing of the cutlet will be toughened and inOifrcst.ible. The slew, hash and meat pie call for quite as much, if not more, judgment and skill than the other methods of cooking. Stewing must be conducted slowly, and on the same general plan as boiling. The stew may be made the most appetizing or the most repulsive of dishes. Prepared as the French serve it, a la jardiniere, the addition of a finely-cut carrot, green peas, string- beans and a sprinkling of onion; the whole browned and thickened with baked flour and served with small pieces of cut toast, offers a most tempt- ng dish. Hashing meat is a fine art. Meat can never be twice cooked without injury to the article, hence the process of hashing should bo a warming only. Perhaps the best way is strong steaming until it is completely warmed through. This completed the haih may be best treated with a piquant ketchup of mushroom, or tomato, ami then bo quickly served— Boston Globe. A Drawing-Room Hammock.
