"Yrry true, senor; but lie would lie a

Idling deliciously over the coffee and

little town. The natives worked as
seldom as possible, and spent most of
their time day-dreaming in the shade,
fishing from the proas, swimming like

on catamaran visits to such islands as
could be seen while the peak of

morning, I mentioued being very fond
of sailing, and in a few moments wr

who sailed the thin-; like an arrow
across the smooth water ami ulone; the
coast to Orote.
It was rather a primitive affair, as
far as construction went, but strong
rnour.li to stand pretty heavy weather.
The hull had Im-cii hollowed out of a
tree trunk and was pointed at each
end. On the lee side it was rounded
like any other boat, but to tv indtvard
it was NrM'ndieularly Hat. Lushed
across the gunwales about four feet
from each end were two straight limbs
of a tree that looked like teak, right
feet long;; and these at the outer ex
treinity wrre lushed to a rounded nud
sliarK'tied boom of the same wood.
The sail, of cocoa matting, was a tri
angular one. which seemed out of all
proMrtion to the narrow hull beneath
it. There was a stout liiuiilxin mast in
(he middle, and from this hung a
smaller and a longer pole which
formed the upper side of the sail's tri
angle, meeting the lower one in a point
at the bow. where they were securad
like a jib. The immense spread of sail
pulled us through the water at such a
rate that I feared we might upset, but
the colonel lunched at me.
"It ces iiii'Missihlr to upset him.
Senor Stefans." he said. "I liaf seen
the wind lift hint clear out of the
water, cten the outrigger also, but he
does come down etery time uton his

were expected Sunday. Ail the morn
ing long trains packed with excursion
ists were rushing to Bar Harbor. The
train which left Bangor at !ii con
sisted of i ears jammed with people.
At Mount Desert ferry, the terminu
of the line, the train is left for the
boat for an eight mile sail to Bar liar
bor. From the wharf a slip or gang
plank 40 feet long and 10 feet wide led
up to the boat. The slip was hinged
at the inner cm!, was raised or loweret'
to suit the tide.
The wharf extends on both sides o'
the lush with the end of the wooden
gang plank. Five timbers, 4 by 1
inches, act vertically, ran the length
uf the plank ami these were crossed
by two inch p'.anking. It is said that
there was no support for the plank be'
tween the hinges at the outer end.
When the excursion train frqtn Ban

rush for the steamer Sapphet. The
first few passengers had crossed the

that -'Hi people were massed on the
plank. Suddenly they felt the plank

merchant, a Cuban, having business
connections with most of the cities of

Sunday that universal suffrage in Cu

near future, and that the only means
of preventing it will be the incorpora
tion of the island as a possession of the
I'nited States as a state, territory or
colony, leading to American immigra
tion, inter-marriagc, the enrichment
of insular blood and the Improvement
of the population. In his judgment
Cuba is otherwise doomed to become
His assertions are based on the fact
that in a population not exceeding
l,ia0.0H0 with a voting capacity of 400,

the white Cubans l-'.VOOO, those claim

that the number who would vote must

diarrhoea and dysentery are each and all
ratarrh of the bowels. Catarrh is the only
correct name for these affections. Pe-rn-na
is an absolute specific for these ailments,
which are so common in summer. Pr. Hart

lost a single case of cholera infantum, dren
terv, diarrhoea, or t-holera morbus, and his
only remedy was Pe-rn-na. Those desiring
further particulars -ihould send for a free
copy of "Summer Catarrh." Address Dr.
