SARATOGA. ELI PERKIN'S TALE OF LOVE AND HOPE.
solute young iiinn I ever saw. His liRitie
is lan0n. He is from New York. Je He
has been in Saratoga all summer, f He
has st'ftned to know every young lady
a': the )Sj:i, and lias lipoid mi : iiiimeiise
favoritfl with all of them. He has also
stood a! good ('bailee, with the dashing
young' ladies from Chicago, the flipsy
flopsy ( girls from Oil City. He; has
d meed Dioi-e,; sat ixr- the bnck balcony
longer and in eloser jH'oximitj' lo lienii
tifiil young ladies, and walked over to
the graveyafd with 'more" 'rich find Aris
tocratic girls from the Clarendon, than
any beau in Saratoga. And still this
young man came to me yesterday al
most heart-broken. His eye had the
look of dinpair.
''I am discouraged and sick of life,'
he said; "I want to die."
"What yoitl you want lo leave this
festive scene, Hoberl?" I said, taking off
my glasses and looking him straight in
"Yes, Uncle Kli, I am tired of life,"
he said, in a bourse whisper. "I came
to Saratoga with a theory. I believed
in that theory as I believed in my life.
I world for it day nnd night. 1 cher
ished it, practiced it, and worshipped it,
only to see its utter failure only to
work out my own ruination by it."
"What was your theory, Hubert?" I
asked. "Was it to bet continually on
the ace to wager large sums on the
same card, hoping and believintr it
would some tune win and make you
rich? Was it "
"Oh, nothing .of the knd. i It was a
social theoryj Eli.' ' You ' know I have
blood und family and good looks.. - My
pet theory was to come to Saratoga and,
marry a rich girl, with a bad cough
with the consumption."
"And von have finally beromo engag
ed to the object of your affections, then,
Hubert?" I asked, becoming deeply in
terested in this 'rood young man.
"Ao, sir, alas! Uli, no! My theory has
failed. I liavq been uiifortuunte. The
first voting lady I nitt wtya front ; Chica
go 31 iss 'John son. Slie was 'sweef, and
oh! so affectionate, and had just the
cough tu 'sil't jbe-rlow hoekU'sT lough.
ii was iaii'iy melodious; ami l Knew ii
would 'prove fatal to the object of Diy
affection in a year;' but alas! and then
he buried his face in his hands.
"What, Kobcrt?" I asked, i '
"Alas! itia fatal moment I learned
that she had no money to go with it. She
was poor, but such a lot ely: rough.' Just
the one I had so long and vainly search
;What then?" ' ' ,
"Why, then I met the rich Miss Lily
Thompson, of Madison avenue. Slie was
very rich. Sho wore bices and diamonds

THE WORK OF THE COMPANY.
Since the flag of the Samana Buy Co.
was hoisted on the Peninsula of Sama
na, in January last, a good deal has
been written of San Domingo in gener
al, and the ability of the Samana. Hay
Company in particular, to obtain a firm
footing on the island. Gen. Vickers,
who has just returned from San Domin
go, where he had been sent on a private
mission, made, during his visit, an ex
amination of the country purchased by
the Samana Day -Company. The result
of that examination, together with a
brief sketch of the origin of the compa
ny, as given by Oen. Vickers, will be
found below. It will be remembered
that tlie agreement entered into bet ween,
the Government of San Domingo and
the Samana Ray Coinpauy ' was made in
December of last year. Ry the terms
of that agreement the company were to
take possession of the Ray of Samana,
the islands therein, find the Peninsula of
Samana, on ' payment of $150,000 in
gold. The origin of thp Samtina I5av
Company thnt is, how the scheme of
purchasing tlie hay ami peninsula came
first to be considered by the present
Company has never"! been published.
Before there was anv thought ot form
ing a company. to purchase tlie peninsu
la, President Baez, in order to draw
foreign capital to the country, made
certain advantageous offers to some
nierican gentlemen. To one he gave
shipping privileges, and to another so
many acres ot the puohe land in return
for making a geological survey of the
country. The result of this survey led
in a great part to the formation of
the Samana Bay Company. The survey
was only partial, yet so much of mineral
wealth was discovered that the forma
tion of - company to purchase tho pe
ninsula began nt once to be mooted.
That company was formed under the
style aiid title of "The Samana Bay
Company," the individuals composing it
merging' their rights to all previous
grants made to them by (Jen. Baez.
Immediately after the people had
confirmed the action of Baez, tho Com
pany sent an engineer corps lo Samana
to make a survey of the public lands on
the peninsula, and to lay tint a site for a
new city, tho position of the old one
Santa Barbara being of such a nature
that it could not easily be enlarged.
They had also to make a chart of the
bay. the only chart of those waters in
existence being in possession of the
English Navy Department. . All of this
consumed necessarily ' several months,
and accounts in a measure for the nii-
areiit Inactivity of the company. In
sew York very little has been heard of
the Samana Bay Company for some
months back, but the western papers
am, the. English papers have not lot the
matter rest. The western journals spoke
of it as a land speculation, aud have re
peatedly asserted that tho country not
coming up to the . expectation of the
speculators, the Company had collapsed
aud had how no intention of spending
any capital in Samana. ..The motive for
the steady "writing down? of Hie Sa
mana Buy Company in the English pa
per is clear enough.' Theyl'see in the
success of Saraana Bay .. tho downfall of
thp-Port of St. Thomas. St, Thomas is
a narrow bay, aad during three months
in -the year, owing to -Hie" hurricane
that prepil, is m unsafe 'anchorage.
The only possible means of developing
the-wealth of the Samana Peninsula is
by encouraging the emigration of active;
industrious men. r It,is obvious that un
til the Company were in possession, of
1 1riiAurlodoA nf the country's resources it
would be worse than.; useless o eivcour-.

deed royal valley. It is 194 miles in
length, by forty in width. I rnns be
tween two magnificent ranges of motin
tnins the Coast Itatige and the Cjboa
Range. Beside the Yiuia, the Yaoue,
another large navigable river, and a
hundred amalli r stream., whose anmla
are full of gold, water this beautiful val
ley. Near the navigable head of the
V una, a good many tobacco plantation
are situated. Between Santiago, a citv
of 10,000 inhabitant, nnd Maeori. 'a
small town near the head waters of the
Yuna, the amount of tobacco raised this

backs of mules. The destination of this
tobacco is Hamburg, Germany, and
irom rucno I'lata to that port lv wav
of N ew York he invariable route se
lected it costs only tl 25 a bale for

pany iu putting steamers on this river

The Yuna is the natu al outlet for the
valley's wealth to the sea, and the Sa-I
Bay Company can, for a cost of
2 50 a bale, transport the tobacco to
their warehouses nt Samana nt a hand-
some profit iu twelve hours from the
navigable head of the Yuna. The sav
ing in time, however, is the least consid
eration. 1 he tobacco is very often in
jured by the rain while being'transport-
el over tlie mountains on the bucks of
mules. The steamers can also be used
to tranpsort t!ie goods of merchants in
to the interior, and to convey the emi
grants which it is the purpose of the
company to place on the lanns iu the
Jn connection with the line of flat
bottom steamers it is the intention of the
Company to build a dirt road through
the tobacco region, from the head wa
ters of the Yuna to Santiago. This dirt
road will be used only until a railroad
can lie const met eii. tin this ro:nl the
Company will establish a line of cover
ed wagons. In the upper part of San-
Doiiiingo and Hayti, and that part of
the valley of Vega Real bordering on
Hayti, there was produced in lNi'V, 1T.
OOo'ooO pounds of sugar, T,500.0(i H.s.
cofl'e", 1,000,000 lbs. indigo and 100.000,
101 lbs. tobacco. This wc.s in the. time
of the French and Spanish occupation,
but since then, owing to the constant
tpiarrels of the nations that sought to
possess the island, industry has died
out, until now, with the exception of
about 12,000,000 pounds of tobacco,
very little else is raised. Since the Sa
mana Bay Company, however, have tak
en possessson of the island several capi
talists have started sugar plantations.
One gentleman 1 a under cultivatior,
and will cut next year 2,000 acres cf
cane. This same gentleman, in compa
ny with one or two others, is clcuiii g
10,000 acres, to be devoted to the rais
ing of sugar.
When the fact that the treaty be
tween the Samana Bay Company and
President Baez was completed became
known to the general public in March
last, a host of people, of all sorts nnd
conditions, made application to have
lands allotted to them on the island.
The applications, when they were at all
suitable, were placed on file, and I he ni
plicants informed that until the Compa
ny had made a thorough survey of the
land .purchased, it would be impossible
to give any accurate information as to
the facilities that could be furnished em
igrants. Within the past few months a
class that can scarcely be called emi
grants, and that sire certainly well fitted
to develop the resources of the country,
have made application for lands. Ow
ing to the Cuban revolution and the
freeing of slaves in Porto Rico, a num
ber of planters, most of them wealthy
men, have been compelled to give up
the cultivation of sugar in that island.
These planters nro most anxious to se
cure lands from the Company. A
wealthy Cuban gentleman, whose good
faith is" guaranteed by one of the largest
sugar-houses in New York, has made
application to the Company for a large
tract of land. This gentleman pledges
himself to bring immediately 1,000 men
familiar with the raising of sugar to the
Vega Rial. From the great number of
applicants the Company expect by a ju
dicious selection to secure men with suf
ficient money to purchase all the neces
sary implements for sugar raising, and
sufficient to produce good crops from the
first. A good many artizans, carpenters,
builders, Ac, have made application to
the Company for transportation to the
l eiiiusuht ot Samana.
At present there is a demand for car
penters, and such as the Company may
select w ill bo tr:inHrled at reasonable
rates, but in a few weeks tlio new enj
Samana City will bo commenced,
aud then it is expected a large number
of hands will be required. . The Tyke,
which sails on Thursday, takes out or
ders to commence the selling of lots in
the new city, nnd in a short time a large
number of new buildings will be in
course of erection.
One of the priucipal sources .of these
island's wealth is found in the immense
forests of. mahogany, lignum vitas nd
kindred hard woods susceptible of receiv
ing when manufactured, a high polish.
The facilities nffored for lumbermen are
admirable, owing to the number of
small streams that traverso the forests
in all directions. Portable- saw-mills
will be sent down nt once, and in a fw
months the lumber trade on tho Peuin
sula of Samana, will it is expected, have
attained respectable proportions. For
the present it is not the purpose of the
Company to devoto any eapilul to work
ers of the salt, tin, and copper mines
of the country. 'Many of these mines
have been worked in years gone by,
but recently have not received attention.
Gold is supposed to exist in great quan

smaller streams, snd even at the, mouth

THE POLITICAL CONDITION.

atrout twenty or twenty-five men, under

At tlmM h ventures to attai lc a platita-
tion wh"ii the men aro awav, ami
outrage committed bv himself and
men are ot tlie most terrible nature.
About, three month since, Lueroii,
while ou one of these thieving expedi
tions, came accidentally in contact with
id liuiu.M-r ol IheUoveiu nent I roups un
der Gen. Caceres, Vice President.of the
Kepublie, son of President Baez. Gen.
Caceres' force which was about equal to
thatof Liiperou's, killed most of the reb-el.-and
took several prisoners. Luperou
with one or two followers, was driven
into Hayti. This affair was described
subsequently by some of the New York
iiaiiers in a brilliant engagement iu
which the rev olutionit captured 'the
Vice President and routed a large force
of the Government' troops. Since that
"brilliuit engagement" nothing has been
heard of Luperon. These hen-roost ex
peditions, cannot, however,' interfere in
any way iu the Satnaua Bay Company.
The Marauders have up to the present
kept a respectful distant e from the Com
pany's portion of the iland. It i quite
true that representatives of tlie English
Government, as well as the Haytians,
Gen. Vickers say, give all the suport
they dare to the rebels, but to those
w ho are most familiar with the political
condition of San Domingo assert that
the revolution will never assume serious
proportions. President; Baez is in jhis
session of the most jKisilive proof that
the English Consul General at Hayti,
and the English merchants at St. Thom
as, have furnished unns and money lo
L-iperon. .Under President B.u-z, at
le ist, it is not likely that any serious
uprising of the Sail Domiiiicaus will oc
cur, even should the Samana Bay Com
pany fail in giving that tone of stability
to the country, which is always attend
ant on successful commercial enterprise.
Gen. Vickers. like every one else who
h:'.s come in contact witli Baez, has been
much impressed by the courteons man
ners of the President, and the great abil
ity he has shown in the administration
i f the G overniiient.
In a few months from now a line of
steamers will be running between New
York and Samana Bay. It is not yet
known whether Fiibetis will be contin
ued as Governor of the island, but when
a permanent President of the Company
is elected, complete arrangements for
the government of the island will be
CHANGES OF A DECADE.
Tiiesocial and external changes which
have taken place iu the West during
the last ten years present marked and
interesting features. The great natural
advantages of that region, with the
enormous energy of its "selected" pop
ulation, have had their effects iu a vast
increase of wealth, find though this
wealth is better distributed there than
anywhere else in the world, vet finally
it Las begun to accumulate in certain
ranks and sets, and to show the usual
results of accumulation. Taste and el
egance manifest themselves everywhere
as they never did before, lhe average
villa or small town-house, in the West is
superior to tha of Nev-iorkor ew
Eugland in design, in color, and- finish.
A simple and 'appropriate style of arti
tecturc, and a tuscful selection of colors,
distinguish these Western houses; even
the builings iu remote and out-of-the-way
. villages are often marked bv a
i-"tirsque nnd pleasing style. With
this elegance of finish iu the houses has
arisen a remarkable care for their sur
roundings for the gardens and lawus
which form so necessary an element of a
tasteful home. The famous Bellveue
avenue of Newport is not finer than Eu
clid avenue in Cleveland. Each resi
dent there shows its green lawn careful
ly rolled and closely mown; aud each its
well-tended flower-garden. When the
costliness of maintaining these luxuries
in such a climate as ours is considered,
some idea may be gained of the wealth
accumulated on that avenue. Evidenly
the idea has penetrated the Western
mind that one of the rewards of life is
to have a beautiful home. An abund
ance of water, besides itn sanitary
value naturally favors all efforts ol
beautifying the grounds, and the
Western towns show a remarkable
spirit aud liberality in erecting : ingeni
ous aud costly machinery for raising
water from the lakes or fiver on tlie
borders of which they are situated. , A
village like Port Huron has its water
works; and Diiluth, only five years old,
is already considering plans for a publie
Turning to the interior aspect of the
town, we find that much has changed
there also. , There Is more indviduality,

silve by the thought that their troublet
are the measure of the prosperity of tha
Western working rhtsse - Another ev
ideiice of advancing wealth and culture
is noticeable in lhe great change in th
style of dres of Western women. Then,
was a time when Western young ladies
while traveling, wore their most gor
geous array, and In a country inn dis
played a dazzling toilet. A tasteful and
appropriate sty lit of dressing- exactly ...
suited for the thing to 1st? done, and yet
pretty and pleasing has succeeded th t
former vulgarity. The fashion is of- ,
ten better than in some of our Eastern,
resorts, where one is so often disgusted
by the shabby mixture of the mountain "'
and parlor in the dress of their visitor. r .
In theWesterii rural inn or mountain
houses there often seems no effort ex '
cept to hat e a pln'ui and pretty traveling ,
costume, worn with .the' unequal grace '
of our country women. It is not too ,'
bold a statement to assort that physical
type ha U changed and improved '
with the progress of wsthestic culture
and the material refinements of life. '
Western women have developed a pe
culiar type of beauty the featnre are
clean-cut, aquiline nose, a small refined '
mouth and thin, delicate complexion
clear calm eyes, forehead regular and ' '
full hair, most often brown and seldom '
long or lull. This seems the type which
under .the condition mentioned, tha .
mixture of races combined with our i
stimulating cliuuile is producing. ; Thq
iniuners of thepris arc sufficiently mod- i
ts and pleasing. Naturally Western 4
women atu more cultured than tho men. :
The latter have had the heavy work of
life too much for any thorough mental
culture. The impression however, is
taking rapid hold of the Western mind '
and quite enough has been sacrificed
to real prosperity, and that many things,
are worth a devoted pursuit which '
bring iu no mouev reward. Scienco is
encouraged, art cultivated, libraries,
public and private, are cverywher
founded; schools even in the border
States are aided with the utmost liberal
itity and institutions of charity abound.
Many men ami women devote them
selves to the interest which does not
"pay," and whose results w ill appear in
One little matter, it may be added, is -'
destined to have an important effect on
Western social life. It is almost impos- -sible
to have an ideal "home'' around a -close
stove. A house without a fire-side
is like a landseae without water: tho I
life and sparkle are gone. Much of the
niihomcly character of our Eastern .
houses come from the want of open fires.
And possihly half of our bronchitis and
nervous troubles find their origin in the
air of the furnace. . ,
The Wet, however, is blest with bit-'
ominous coal, and open fires must be
more and more "the custom. To the
Western child of the coming genera
tions, "the fire side" will have its true '
meaning again, aud its cheerful light
will le oiie;bright picture in memory.
Social life itself will .be stimulated by
the focus of warm hospitality and home
Row to Brr a Honsr.. From the ad
vance sheet of Rev. W. Murray's new
book on "The horse," we extract the
"Be sure that the horse you purchase
has symmetry, viz.: is well proportioned
throughout. Never purchase a horse
because he has a splendid developement
of one part of his organization, if he '
be lacking in any other. Above all,
keep well in mind what you are buying
for,, and buy the horse liest adapted to
the work you will require of him; and
when such an animal is yours be content. ;
Never jockey. An occasional exchange
may lie allowable; but this daily 'swap
ping' of horses advertises a man's in- .
coiupetaucy for anythinghighor. Anoth-
er caution is this: Never purchase a horse
until you have seen him move, and un
der the same conditions to .which he ,
will be exposed in tho service you will
expect of hint. If for a draft, see him' ,
draw, back, and turn around in both di
rections; if for the road see how ho han
dles himself not merely on level ground
but going up sharp declivities and, above ..
all, in descending them. In this way
you will as -ertain the faults or escel-
encc both in hi temper and structure.
"In these exercises drive him your- '
self. The reins in a skilltul hand, aid-'
ed by the whip or mouth, can be made
to conceal grave defects. Lot him move '
with a loose rein, so that he may J
take his natural gait, and not his artiti- ' '
cial;for by so doing, you will deleft any '
mistakes of judgment you may have '
made when looking him over in a state
of iniicivity, Many a time unsound-
ness will appear iu motion, which no in
spection of the eye and finger, however
close can asscertaiii. When yon have
walked him and jogged him, if ho is to
serve any other than mere draft purpos
es but to his speed and keep him at it
for a sufficient distance to test his
breathing capacity: then pull him np;
jump from the wagon, and look at his
Hanks; inspect his nostrils, and put your
ear close to his chest, in order to ascer-
tain if the action of tlie heart is normal. . i
If this exercise has caused him to per
spire freely, all the better; for you can '
see when you take him back to the sta- ; !
ble, whether he dries off quickly, as all
horses do in perfect health." i
President White, of Cornell Univer- ;
sitv, said recently in an address to the -
students: "If there is any man whom
from the bottom of my heart, I pity, it t
is the man who believes that all man-.
kind are cheats and swindlers, and ;wh
considers life merely . a game of grasp
ing and griping. If there is any young '
man for whom I feel deep regret as f of :
a man sure to fail, sure to live and, die ,
wretchedly, it is the young man whej
goes forth into the world believing that -
the only motives in this world are selfioh '
motives. Depend upou if tiat selfish-' J
ness is not the only motive in the. world 7,
nay, it is not even the strongent m
motive."' -'- ' ; - ' u "'l
