A TALE OF CUBA.
A T-TAT- T ?.T
s oun dud in a
from the drams,
and slowly, in sin
gle tile,, the miser
came into view.
Ragged, dirty, un
panting from the
sky, they were
truly a pitiable
sight, though they
held up their heads
smiled deriiively at
the insnlting epithets and grimaces
which the lower classes heap ad npon
them, especially in the vicinity of any
officer's residence. The better clase
of the Havaaese showed their sympa
thy in striking contrast to the jeers
and gibes of the baser sort- the men
by their sullen, indignant looks ; the
women by frequent sobs and tears and
smothered exclamai ions of "Los des
graciados!" "Que lastima !" "Dios
los ayude !"
The time was 1851, directly after
the captare of Crittenden, Lopez's
brave lieutenant, in his ill-starred ex
pedition to Cuba. He and bis Spar
tan remnant were these forlorn pris
When they reach the Calle do la
Lamparilla, ono of the narrow streets
of the old city, the guards suddenly
halted the column and reverently
bared their head. A fanerai proces
sion was approaching from the oppo
site direction, and the line waa pushed
close toward the nooses jutting on the
narrow footway, pcarcely worthy the
name of a sidewalk.
A youth among the foremost pris
oners, who, evidently, had not the
fortitude of his older companions,
judging by his bowed head and deep
dejection, now looked up with a wan
smile of recognition as a pair of dark
eyes brimming with tears gazed
through a latticed window at the piti
"Amalia," Le whispered.
"Boberoito! Is it indeed yon.
Oh, how terrible ! I did not dream
you were with them. "
"Dearest cousiu, save me," he re
plied in Spanish as fluent as her own.
"We are all condemned to be shot in
two days, perhaps sooner. I am too
"Would tbr.fc I could, ui&o querido,
bet, alas! I am powerless as a lr mb
"Amalia, don't say that. You have
friends, lovers, among the Spaniards.
For tho love of my mother-"
"Forward march !" raog on the air,
and the weary column passed on to
the dungeons of Morro Castle.
That night tho Senorita Amalia de
Yaidez was a dream ot loveliness as
she reclined listlessly among the
cushions of a lounge in her handsome
salon. Tull, exquisitely formed, with
jetty tresses framing a softly rounded
face, with "midnight eyes" so large,
so liquid, so lustrous that her admir
ers exhausted tho influence of their
honeyed tongues in praising them:
with a mouth whose twin carnations,
perfect in repose, we're still more en
chanting when her smile disolosed the
dazzling teeth within-it is no wonder
she was considered to bo the beauty
of beaut ie? in a capital famed for the
grace and loveliness of its women.
The youug Captain Antonio de
Bamon, who presently entered, was
so enraptured with her appearance
that only the presenoe of the iuevitable
duenna restrained him from throwing
bimbelf at her feet in reality, as well
as in the formal salutatioo with which
Spanish gentlemen greet all ladies.
"Beso a V lo pies, senorita."
She responded in the same fashion,
only kissing his hands (figuratively)
instead of his feet. But she looked
preoccupied, sad, despondent. He
seated himself near her, while the
duenna, her gentle Tia Maria, retired
to a distant corner, and, opening a
prayer book, was soon entirely (to all
appearances, at least) absorbed in its
"Tell me, my soul," said he, "why
are you so melancholy?"
A sigh was the only response.
"Ah, yeal I know your tender
heart aches for the prisoners you must
have. seen to-day. Poor fellows !
Theirs is a terrible fate. Bat, tell me,
what is it you wished to ask me? Can
there be a wish of yours I would not
gratify at thu risk of my life, if need
be? J have your precious billet safe
here," and he pointed to his heart.
"Ton have but to command and I will
At these words Amelie looked up,
and a wave of color flowed over her
fair face as she read the passionate de
votion in hi 3 eyes. Used as she was
to admiration-homage, rather, in the
impetuous, tropical style-she had not
before beheld such ardor as Antonio
now vainly straggled to repress. He
had long been one of her train of ad
mirers, but though she secretly pre
ferred him, she bad never betrayed
that preference by a single word. For
her sake, though a brave aud loyal
Spanish officer, he had been led to
sympathize with the patriots, and, in
time, to acknowledge the justice of
"Tia Mia," said Amalia, turning to
her annt, "J have mislaid my pearl
bracelet upstairs. Will vou kindly
look for it?"
The duenna vanished as if she had
expected the request. On the instant
Amalia said to him:
"Ton have often sworn that you
love me to distraction, is it not so,
An toni to?"
What happiness it was for him to
hear from her lips the diminutive
"ito" added to his name, which, in it
self, is a oaress in words.
"My life, with all my heart and
soul," he exclaimed, seeking to em
brace her. Bat she drew back.
"No, I give myself only to him who
proras his lore."
"What can I do for you, beloved?
Dispose of me as you will for life."
"It is life I ask. Sit here beside
me, dearest, and I will tell you."
She then related the soene of the
morning, her discovery that Roberto,
who lied passed the previous winter in
Havana with his family, was now
among the prisoners.
"He is the son of my favorite aunt
-so yoong, -barely sixteen. He came
here to perfect himself in Spanish, an cl
I inspired him with my own enthusi
asm for the Cuban oause. He has re .
turned, alas! to die, unless you will
save him for my sake. Should he per
ish, I can never know another happy
Antonio grew palo as he listened.
"You know that I would yield ray
life at your command willingly, but
in this, even were it possible, my
honor is involved. I cannot betray
tho flag I serve."
"Even when it sanctions butchery,"
she exclaimed, passionately. "Gol If
Roberto dies, I will never see your
face again-cold, cruel, so you are.".
"Amalia, you oannot break mir
heart thus. Ask me anything else."
"You are prodigal of words, senor,"
she began, scornfully, but with a
rapid change of manner and tone, rose
and threw her arms round his neck.
"Ar.tonito miol I love you," she
sobbed. "For you I would give up
home, relatives, country. Grant mo
this one favor. Savo that poor child,,
and I swear to become your wife in
another month. You have said that
if I would marry you you would re
sign your hateful commission in the
army and seek a home in Mexico. I
will follow you there and to the end
of the earth."
The last words were sobbed cn his
fiercely-beating heart, as he tenderly
embraoed her with an anguished look
that all his rapture could not disguise.
"You have won," he said, after a
pause. "For you I will dare anything.
They will die day after to-morrow. I
have but a short time, and now must
leave you, dearest. If I fail, you will
forgive me, will you not? for I will
not survive my disgrace. "
"You will succeed, beloved. It is
a righteous act. They will have
enough victims. You shall never re
pent your sacrifice."
He smiled sadly. -
"Ah, if this bad only happened after

door, and Tia Maria, entering, said :

"Oh, how stupid of me-here it is
on tho sofa." .
Roberto lay ou a pallet beside two
other comrades, who, in the midst of
their own misery, tried to cheer and
fortify the boy, exhorting him to meet
manfully a doom which they felt was
even more terrible for him than for
them. - He had been one of the most
enthusiastic volunteers; had fought

ing deeply, murmured :
"Oh, my love, what a saorifice!"
The courtyard of the castle was
thronged with soldiery as Crittenden
and his unfortunate band were
marched to their death-place, just as
day was breaking over the beautiful
bay. Surrounded by hostile soldiers,
they still maintained a defiant air,
even when the glittering line of bay
onets faced them, and they knew all
hope was over.
"Kneel, filibusteros I"
The command was not obeyed.
Crittenden proudly refused, in the
words that have passed into history :

At the word "Fire!" so deadly was
the volley that few survived it, and
they but a few moments. Roberto,
happily, had no need to simulate
death. The shook and strain of tho
suspense had caused him to faint, and
the surgeon, who hastened to his side,
gave a deep sigh of relief as he per

Au Expensive Dinner.
A trio were sitting on the postofiica
guard rails last night telling stories.
One of thom related this: "I know of
a fellow who had spent a very quiet
life in the country and had never boen
to the oity. Coming into a little
money, he suddenly developed a de
sire to be a sport, and immediately
departed for the city, lt was his
habit after arriving to lounge aroaud
the corners in the central part of the
city, aad he naturally heard the gilded
youth talkiug about the amount of
money they 6pent.
" 'Say, I had a great dinner last
night,' he heard one say, 'and it cost
me twenty dollars.'
"Many other remarks like this he
heard, and the rustic sport decided to
get into the swim too. He made up
his mind at once to get an expensive
dinner, realizing that the most of tho
money spent by thc boasters he had
overhead had been for wine. Walk
ing into a swell restaurant, he called
the waitor over. '3ay, look here, ' said
he, 'I want an expensive dinner like
the rest of the bloods. Bring me
twenty dollars' worth of ham and
eggs. ' "-Philadelphia Call.
Thn Ambition ot Our Horwood,
"Few of us ever achieve the ambi
tions of our boyhood," said a well
known lawyer to a Star reporter.
"Now, I have a friend who, when he
was growing up, had a yearning de
sire to be a railroad engineer. When
a mere baby, he liked no toy so
well as a train of cars, and no game
suited him at sohool like that of being
an engine and have boys clinging to
eaoh other's coats for cari. It was his
hobby by day and his dream by night,
bat he contd not obtain a railroad po
sition when he left sohool, and beoame
a clerk, and, subsequently, a mer
chant, bat he has never felt satisfied
at not b<ung able to follow his natural

; Some, Queer Bones.
The Lakeview (Oregon) Examiner
has this correspondence from Silver
I have lately returned from aTossil
hunton what I count the great Oregon
desert, which- has become famous to
the scientific world on acoount of the
many fossils of extinct animals that it
contains-many of which have never
even been classified. On my recent
trip, in company with H. J. Rinehart,
who was my associate and helper, we
found some new and very interesting
fossils that I had never observed be
fore. Ono is a foot of the equine, not
larger than a small Shetland pony.and
from the appearance of the coffin joint
the foot must have stood quite
vertically. The other foot, or part of
a foot, is hard to describe, being well
sustained by a strong joint and deep
gTooves. We also found the toes of
some animal that must belong to the
ungalata or or tinplates ill. All told,
wc brought in quite a lot of bones of
different animals, and among them A
beast whose bones I had found before,
but was never able to describe. The
bones were broken, but enongh were
gathered to nee that he was rather a '
singular beast, as the bones are shoi,
and very crooked.
These fossil beds were named by
Profesiior Cope the eques, or equine,

The sounding was taken in the Paoitio
Ocean, oft the coast of Japan. The
contrivance for deep sea measuring
was sunk to a depth of 4000 fathoms,
or about six miles, when the wira

the bottom at the same place was fol

The Island of Cuba.
Under the existing conditions of
revolution in Cuba, aud the probabil

congress will recognize the insurgents
as being en"4.!tied to all the rights of
belligerents, a few statistics concern
ing the importance of Cuba, its popu
lation, and commercial relations with
this country will not be inappropriate.
The island of Cuba comprises an
area of about 46,000 square miles,
about one-fourth smaller than the
state of Florida, though the popula
tion is much more dense, Cnba having

two-thirds are white The chief
cities of the island are as follows:
Havana, the capital, with a pop
ulation of 200,000; Santiago de Cuba,
70,000; Puerto Principe, 46,000;
Holguin, 35,000; Matanzas, 27,000;
St. Jago, 27.U00. The total revenues
of the country from all sources are es
timated at $25,000,000 per annum,
while the expenditures reach $35,000,
000, or a per capita debt of nearly
$170, while the value of its landed
estates is $220,000,000. Io a good
year the exports of Cuba reach $90,
000,000 in value, comprising sugar,
tobacco, cigars, molasses, cedar and
hardwoode, iron ore and tropical
fruits. Two luousand vessels with a
tonnace of 2,500,000, trade with the !
island annually. In return the United ?
States exports to Cuba merchandise ,
and supplies of all descriptions to a <
value of $24,000,000 and over. Of '
the $90,000,000 exported annually by J
Cuba, about five-sixths of it comes to \

How a Yonne Lady Regained the UM of

From Pu Standard-Union, Brooldyn, JV. T.
Too much bard study at school brought on
St. Vitus1 daine. Suoh waa the common ex?
porlonco ot Miss Glendora Rivers, daughter
Ot Hrs. Amelia Rivers, ot 69 Ev
erson street, Brooklyn. The disease grew
worse every month, until the young Indy's
entire right .ride became paralyzed; but, now
that a marvelous and permanent cure has
been wrought, it will be interesting to rea I
her own version of the efficacy of Dr. Will
iams' Pink Tills.
"For moro than a year," said Miss Rivers,
"doctors attended mo without effecting the
si klitcst change in my condition. It any
thing, I grow worse under their treatment,
until February of this year, when my condi
tion became critical.
"I had lost the completa use ot my arms
and limbs and speech. I oonld only swallow
liquids, and these only as they fed me with a
spoon, when they conld got my mouth open.
I wanted to sleep all the time. The stupor I
laid in was somethlug like a trance, and no
doubt I would have died if they had not
waked me up at intervals.
"The first week in March my mother, who
is a siok nurse, was a 1 vised by a neighbor to
try Dr, Williams' Pink Pills in my case. She
got some of the pills-a box from Neilson's
drug store, nt the corner ot Myrtle avenue
and Hall street. Before I had taken one
half the contents of the box n remarkablo
change was noticod in my condition.
"Gradually I regained the use of my
arras and li nhs andsneecb, and by the time
lim pills were gone I was up and about the
hou?e almost well. But my mother thought
it wise to get another box of the pills, and
this she did. and hore you see mo sland be

A Little Sermon for Today.
Let ns do right, and whether happi
ness come or unhappiness it is no very
mighty matter. If it come, life will
be sweet; if it do not come, life will
bo bitter-bitter, not sweet, and yet
to be borne.
OD such a theory alone is the gov
ernment of this world intelligently
just. The well-being of onr souls de
pends only on what we are; and noble
ness of character is nothing else bnt
steady love of good and steady scorn
of evil. The government of the world
is a problem while the desire of sel
fish enjoyment survives; and when
standard (which wiil not be till the
day after doomsday, and not then),
self-loving men will still ask why? and
find no nu s wer. Only to those who
have the heart to say, "We can do
without that; it is not what we ask or
desire," is there no s.cret. Man will
have what he deserves, and will find
what is really best for him, exactly as
he honestly seeks for it. Happiness
may fly away, pleasure pall or cease to
be obtainable, wealth decay, friends
fail or prove unkind, and fame turn
to 'infamy; but the power to serve God
never falle, and the love of Him is
never rejected.-Froudes' Works.
