In a little clearing was a bonfire. Round about this^fire circled slowly, with luKubrioag cries, a ring of half naked black men and women. Back of the circle on a rough throne built of boxes and logs sat the horrible old ne- gress Jezebel. Her rags fluttered in the sight wind her scanty locks wero tossed over her bare, skinny shoulders. In one hand she held a forked stick, and in the other, dreadful to relate, a writhing, wriggling snake. As we looked, rising from her throne she held the serpent »loft and waved her forked scepter slow- ly three times. It was the signal for a wild, unlicensed dance, an abandoned, lascivious measure, in which I was hor- rified to trace resemblances to Portia's audacious outburst in the hall n few nights before. \"Those are Portia's friends,\" whis- pered my guide. \"What do you think of them?\" \"Oh, is it not terrible?\" I riumnured. \"We must—wo must save her!\" Old Jezebel shook her serpent.

My earliest recollections circle rpnnd m y tweet little cousin Portia and her playmate, Sidonie, the daughter of a beantifnl, accomplished Creole, whom my uncle bought in New Orleans as a • present for my aunt.'«.I recall now a scene I witnessed when a child, which I djd not of course then understand, but which nevertheless impressed me deeply. These little girls were romping across the lawn ono day, rolling and tumbling about like two graceful kittens. My sunt and uncle were sitting on the pi- azza, and I was on the steps repairing a kite. Suddenly my annt called the chil- dren to her. They came flying up the steps, black curls waving, eyes flashing, oheeks glowing—an exquisite picture of happy, healthful childhood.
