Families either live in booses or in avo apartment ; in this country they seldom life in tents, except Gipsies. I hare often thought that Gipsies are fools to Jive in tente, but I have been told that they do aoto rex the tax-collectors, which is a meritorious motive. Fathers are stout, ocdersized men, witb mutton-chop whiskers. Tbev have a watch, a latch-key, and two shillings and threepence in their waistcoat pockets. They talk continually about the exorbitant price of meat, and the good old times when beef was fourpenerhalf pennj the pound. They generally nave corns and read newspapers.

The Occupation of Zarans by the Germans. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 3 April 1875

The Occupation of Zaram bj the Germans. {SeuFnie Prate-Waoo, January J7.) Of the many barbarities, by which the Carlists have sullied die banner of Legitimacy, perhaps the most barbarous was the tiring upon the Mecklenburg brig CiMto. which ran aground at Zaraus some time since. Storm and waves had driven the ship towards the coast ; it lay helplessly fixed among &e j rocks, and the crew were struggling with j the wild elements for their lives. Their 1 efforts would have been in vain and they would have found a watery grave far from their country, had not the Repub lican volunteers of Guetaria taken pity upon them. A number of those brave fellows got a boat and rowed through the surf of the sinking ship, from which they rescued the exhausted Germans one after another. During mis noble work of rescue, which it took a long tune to per form, there was a constant shower of Carlist bullets from Zaraus. Like the reTpiihaU of the Southern Seas, the champions of Throne and Altar fir...
