"Wagons and carts of ioreign style and make are obtain- able but they cost money, and many of I the farmers and truckmen manage to i ct along with a very simple liome-i liome-i made affair constructed after this fash- ion: Cousin Chileno goes to the woods, ! chops down a big tree, saws off from ! the butt a couple of six-inch bolts, bores an axle-hole in the middle, attaches at-taches axle and neap, rigs a coarse frame or rack and the cart is ready for use. With wear the axle-holes oulai'ge sometimes more upon one side than upon the other, and of all the hideous, creaking noises that ever fell upon mortal mor-tal ear none can beat that produced by a procession of these carts loaded with farm products or merchandise as thev are drawn slowly along a village street or through the ruts and mire-pits of a country road by oxen with straight yokes tied to their horns with leather thongs. v;-. .. In the cities and large towns English and American hacks and barouches are becoming very popular, though one seldom sel-dom sees the light single buggy so common com-mon with us. Upon the public hacks three horses are usually driven abreast. Horses are plenty and cheap, animals of the ordinary type being valued at from fifteen to forty dollars. The manner in srhich they are treated would be likely ft T A. CHILIAN STREET-CAR COSW7CTOB. to Swamp with business a society for the prevention of cruelty to animals. Tha first experience of a foreigner just landed in the country and being driven from station or dock with a typical cocfre-ro cocfre-ro at the reins usually gives his nerves a bit of a, shock. These drivers frequently frequent-ly have premiums offered by their employers as a spur to their diligence in getting business, so each one is benl on outstripping his fellow. As soon as passengers are seated, away they drive like mad, with horses upon a funious gallop, excited and stung by cracks ana cuts of the long lashes, that are unmercifully un-mercifully laid upon them. "With a dozen or two of these three-horse conveyances con-veyances driven at this rate in close proximity along a street, with apparently appar-ently reckless regard to property, ihnb. i or life, one is likely to speedily revs that he did not walk or take the i cars. . ;-. .'- i Spea'iring of street-cars suggests reference to one custom peculiar to the : country. All the street-ear conductors j are young women. Wi.ariUg jaunt; straw hats, the principal distinguishing i badge as to dress, and perched upon a ! high stool upon the platform, they are not wholly unattractive in appearance: ! but they are exposed to the chafiing of : passengers of the other sex, who make i very free with them, hence the oceupa- i tion is one not likely to be desired by i any self-respecting young woman.
