When Mr. W. Board began reading
his scholarly paper, entitled "A Study
of Emerson," before the Congression
al Lyceum Sunday afternoon last,
there was present an appreciative
audience, among which was quite a
number of professors and other gen

The essayist referred to Emerson as
a great thinker, philospher and essay
ist, that his essav on Universal Com
pensation, was one of the best to be J
found in the English language, and if,
properly studied now, it would prove
of great benefit to the people of this
country as it would clearly show that
swift and certain punishment accord

This Is the 5?laco Where Magellan Landed
to Take Possession for Spain.
Cebu, on the eastern side of the Ion
narrow island of the same name, ir
the heart of the Visayas and of thf
whole archipelago, is a much more
attractive place than Iloilo, though il
has been commercially eclipsed by the
latter on account of advantages as 2
shipping place for sugar. Ceuu is th
place where Magellan landed in 1523
to take possession of evervtsiin"- with

little island of Mactan, where the nav
igator was killed, having iraprudentlj
interfered in a native quarc.1. Here
too, Legaspi, landed in 1505. and tirsl
made the Spanish possession effective
Until he discovered the advantages oi
Manila, a few years later, the colonia
government was established here, and
Cebu continued to be the capital oi
Visayas to the end of the Spanish do
minion. It also continued to I e a sea
port of some importance, though the
bulk of the sugar shipment had been
drawn to Iloilo by its more ronvenienl
location for the collection of the pro
duct, and it is still, next to Manila, the
chief point for the export of hemp.
Moreover, its situation is attractive,
and it is a well-built town.

indicate comfort and taste as well as
comparative wealth. The whole isl

long and somewhat mountainous, is
not only fertile and verdant: but it is
healthy and is occupied by a people of
peaceable disposition and civilized ten

Glimpse at Manila.
Manila at night is very anil. After
10 o'clock the city is dead, aud only the
sentries are seen in the street.- There
is no theater there. The soldiers are
not allowed out of quarters after 10
o'clock unless on duty: the saloons are
closed and the night life of Manila is
behind closed doors. Tt is almost im
possible to imagine a grcir city of
300.000 being as quiet as Manila is at
night. The Spaniards' retize to their
homes and the Americans to their bar
racks. The few foreign residents who spend
their evenings at the clubs return home
long before the small hours. Most
people there go to bed early, because
nearly all the city's business is done
in the forenoon, and people get up
pretty early to do it. At noon all the
stores are closed for two howi. and in
the afternoon those who can d. so seek
refuge from the sun bepath the
spreading balconies of their homes and
do not appear in the escolta unless it
is necessary. And if it is necessary,
they put it off until to-morfew.
The Philippine girls are interesting,

the crowd of listeners a lurid account
of a light he had witnessed on the skir

Everybody in the crowd was taking the
story right down without the least
sign of a doubt as to its absolute ac

a smooth face and a milled shirt front,
became an interrogator after the facts:
"Did I understand you to say that

"And their canteens?"

have thrown their canteens away."

One who has not witnessed a sunset
in tropical waters may be sa5i to have
lived almost in vain. There is no use
trying to describe it the crimson and
gold, green, amethyst, purple aud sap
phire, reflected in varying tints on sea
and shore, on sails aud hills, in won
derful but brief pyrotechnics. I have
seen hard-headed business men, as
void of sentiment as the cattle and
crops, the ores and machines they
have come down here to invest their
money in,"gush" like school girls un
der the glamor of the Western skies
and drop into poetry with Wegg-like
facility anent the dying day and Twi

Our steamer left Port Royal at sun

the mossy roofs and towers of that
shabby town all gilded in the evening

The main course from Jamaica to
Havana lies in a northwesterly direc

several ports of call en route. First,

WHOLESALE DISTRICT, SANTIAGO,
we saw again the apparently unbrokeni
wall of the Sierra Maestro; and at
length the historic gap whs disclosed
just wide enough to admit an ocean
liner. The wonder is that Cervera's
seven-thousand-ton cruisers ever man
aged to wiggle through the twisting
neck of that bottle! The shallow water
at the entrance of the sinuous channel
does not conceal a sandbar, but a liv
ing, growing barricade of coral rock,
requiring the most careful piloting to
pass in safety. Doubtless the day is
at hand when Yankee engineering will
render the broad, deep bay beyond as
atcfhsible as it is now one of the finest
harbors in the hemisphere.

To the north and east of Isla del
Pinos the sea is dotted with the archi
pelagoes of Los Canarios and Banco
de los .lardines: innumerable tiny isl

tl.cm is unalloyed delight. The boat
winds in and out the labyrinthine

on the silvery bottom, or sea flowers
