st in a cigar, which, whensupplied, tliey care for httle else; but the wo-men will do nothing but loiter aw^ay their time,smoking; and are so disgustingly dirty, that itis dangerous to go near them. From the pro-vince of Santa Fe, also, cattle becomes veryscarce, owing to the poorness of the land; butnumerous flocks of sheep and goats supply theirplace.

When we wanted to change horses, we stoptand surrounded them, and they were lassoed bythe peons with their usual dexterity. Skirtingby the Sierra de San Luis, at about a leaguefrom the town, we entered a very pretty valley,formed by two high mountains, partially coveredwith thick brushwood, thus making a completenatural pass through the Sierra. On clearingthis valley, we crossed an Arroyo, and entered thetown of San Luis (the capital of the province)by a long street, having a mud wall on each side.The houses are all built of mud bric
