A few years later Friar Marcos of NIco viewed It 'from a distant hill, and then hastened iback to Mexico to Inflame the Spanish adventurers with tho greed of gold and tho lust of conquest by exaggerated descriptions of Its wealth and magnificence. The next year It was entered by Coronado and his disappointed followers, who found but a cluster of squalid huts, inhabited by barbarians. Instead of a city rivaling tho capital of the Monto-rumaas tho prlcRt had led them to expect. Soon afterwnrd Hawlkuh and all tho rest of the Seven Titles wero abandoned, tho Inhabitants congregating into one large community, the better to defend themselves against their new whlto foes.

Llko their ancestors on Uio big plantaUons, Uielr chief ploasuro Is tho entertaining vt others, and Uio cordiality and charming unaffectedness of manner always Impresses a stranger who Is vIsIUiit tho lltUo town with Uio feeling Uiat ho is not only most welcomo but Uiat ho is giving others pleasure by Uio very fact of his being there, and he goes away no longer a stranger bu a real friend to all, loving Uio placo moro Uian ever, and with tho know I edge Uiat for him tho "Iatchstrlug It always on Uio outsldo." Even Uio soft, sweet breezes of Hickman have a strange, fascinating Influence which has never yet failed to capturo th heart of a visitor. Another characterlsUc of Hickman is tho unbounded lovo of pleas uro and tho care-frehappy nature j or Uio people. Although most of the men havo enormous business cares and the women household responslbll lUes, nevertheless the majority never bucin to bo weighed down or depress od by cares and their bright sunnj disposiUonu will not permit of such Uilngs as "tho blues." Each has a merry word for tho other, every one Is kindly and sympaUietlcally Interests ed In every ono elso's Joys, pleasures or sorrows, and alas! I must admit It, eveyrdody knowB everybody elso's business! Although pleasure Is not exactly put before business, it nevertheless goes hand in hand with It and in a simple, delightful form it certainly abounds In Hickman. llfo Ono other thing that I admire so much In theso dear people of mine Is their generosity, and charity. Sometimes when by chance I seo or hear of Uio Uilngs they havo done, for they never tell of Uielr noblo deeds and oven make light In speaking of them, I realb WTonder If tho hearts of all Hickman peooplo are not mado of gold. Above all things they nro honorable In every senso of tho word, for they bo Hevo firmly Uiat a gentleman is not a gcnUeman without unsullied nnd un stained honor. Chivalry, as In tho dayti of old, exists In Its purest form, and womanhood is held sacred and honored Ina way beauUful to see A beautiful tribute Is paid the SouUi by tho great lovo they bear tho land of their birth and UTc country of Uielr ancestors. To them tho word South means home and all that Is dear to them. Yet In Uielr tender loving memories of Uie "Lost Cause" and their devoUon to tho sunny "Dixie Land" they aro nearly all and liberal enough not to be unduly prejudiced against tho NorUi, and as an old Colonel I once knew said, "her good, but misguided sons." broad-minded continues until Christmas. nttrWf'iiTifr to buy a stylish hat at about half what they usually sell for.
