Cuba's Bright Outlook.
Frank Steinhart, United States con-
I sul general at Havana, in a report to
the state department makes some in
teresting statements regarding the
progress of the new republic of Cuba.
The receipts of the government for the
fiscal year ended June 30, I." I', were
130,112,241.10 and the expenses $17,
--330,508.10. The balance in the treas
ury, including $2,968,689.37 on hand July
1, 1903, was $5,860,372.37. Payments
Of interest had been met on the $35,
--000,000 of bonds floated to pay the
army of independence and on the $3,
--000,000 Cuban junta bonds issued dur
ing the revolution, the total public
debt of the island, and the bonds were
selling above par.
The exports of the island for the cal
endar year 1903 were $78,480.4 IB as
against $64,948,804 for 1002. Returna
for the fiscal year have riot yet been
-completed. Of the exports $01,134,902
went to the United States.
Cuba has now 573 miles of public
railways and a great number of plan
tation railways, which import a large
amount «>f American steel and railway
supplies. The Havana electric rail
way operates a mileage of 48.22 and
gives excellent service.. The telegraph
service is extensive and good, the rate:
being about the same as those of tele
graph companies in the United States.
Telephone lines are in operation in all
the larger cities and towns. Three ca
ble lines Connect the island with the
outside -world, and one runs around
the island. Steamships of twelve com
panies sioi' regularly at Cuban port*,
The cleanliness inculcated and en
forced during the period of military
occupation is strictly adhered to, and
the sanitarr condition of the country
is constant'}" improving. The water
systems of the large cities are satisfac
tory, particularly that at Havana,
which carries the purest water to the
city from fie springs of Vento, nin?
miles distant, through the magnificent
Isabella 11. aqueduct.
Life and property in Cuban cities and
towns are well protected by the munic
ipal police forces. The maintenance of
safety in country districts and along
highways is intrusted to the rural

"Does scbooltcaehing pay?" is a ques
tion which finds various answers, but
mostly negative ones, in the mouths of
the teachers themselves, says Arthur
Goodrich in Leslie's Magazine. "Any
: man who has brains enough to earn
$1,200 a year teaching," declared one
teacher to Mr. Goodrich, "can make
$12,000 a year doing something else."
Another, a high school principal, de
cried his vocation not because of its
1 small financial returns, but "because a
man likes respect and reputation
among men, and few men respect a
schoolteacher." Only one out of elev
en teachers Interviewed by Mr. Good
rich felt satisfied with Ills work. "I
n:a!:c enough money,'' this one said,
"probably as much as I could in an
other profession. I Imagine the ma
jority of people peel me as much
as 1 respect the majority of people. I
i:r.il a great deal of satisfaction in my
work, nnd few even wealthy men have
as long a vacation."
Xo professional course of study is re
quired of a man who is to teach. The
qualifications as outlined by a well
known superintendent ore: "First, oaar
actcr; second, scholarshipa university
education if passible; third, physical
health; fourth, aptitude." Yet it Is
difficult to find enough pood teacher*,
according to the statement* of super
intendent!!, and difficult to keep them
when once obtained. But a small per-'
centage of college graduates take up
teaching, and many of these go into
other line:: of work at the first oppor
tunity. Out of a graduating class of
2SO at Princeton last year but twelve
expressed nn intention to teach.
This evident prejudice against teach
ing as a profession is hard for an out
sider ta understand unless it lie due to
the same spirit of unreal which makes
men of every profession did fault with
■■:;■ lives. It is dor/ tful if the aver
age doctor cr lawyer finds more pleas
ure in bis work than the average teach
er does in his. The schoolteacher is gen
erally sheltered fro:;> uncongenial per*
son.-.. and as to salaries, while they rang*
for women and men from $200 a year to
$0,000, the average salary of men
teachers in p-iulie schools in New Jer
sey, for example, is ,S^7 a month. The
average Income of the doctors of the
United States has been estimated at
$7511 a year.
Beyond liie •luestion of money there
is an indirect reward for the school
teacher which f.:cn of other professions
have not The doctor may point to re
markable euros, the lawyer to the wiji
ning of a great law case, but the suc
cessful teacher has an army of wit
nesses, themselves doctors and lawyers
and business men, whose success is in
part his own, whose minds he has
molded, whose Impulses he has stead
ied, whose ambitions he has encour
aged. Herein lie* bis real reward.
As for the future of the teacher, with
the growing consolidation of schools,
the tendency extending even into the
rural districts, h's position becomes
more permanent and his chances of ad- j
vancement better. In the larger cities
teachers are pensioned after kins serv
ice. Men have failed In every profes- ,
sion, and there am perhaps as many
who have found teaching worth while
as those who have succeeded in other
accent statistics show tint there is
a decided movement of people from
towns and cities t 1 rural districts. Life
in the Interior is not so loaf ly and un
social as it was before the el'-.trie rail
ways and telephones came lu\o general
use. And free mail delivery with par
cels post will help the good work along.

Let the Girls Br G>rlK.
The question so often discussed 111
addresses and papers devoted to the
training of the young. "What shall we
do with our girls?" can be met In all
seriousness with the question. "Why
not let them be girls?" The clever wo
man poet, Ella Wheeler Wilcox, whose
pen is active in the cause of social re
form, recently took issue with the prop
osition of the New York schodl authori
ties to train girls with boys ami like
boys. It is proposed to educate girls
of twelve to fourteen years of age in
classes with boys under men teachers
and a man principal. To this Mrs. Wll
cos objects in her editorial corner of
the American. She says: "There is no
time In the life of woman, from the
cradle to old age, when she needs the
careful guidance, by precept and exam
ple, of the best of her sex as during the
years specified. That is to woman
hood like the awakening of spring to"
the earth. A frost in the young May
orchard spoils the summer fruit. A
wrong influence in the early years be
tween chilJhood and young girlhood
spoils the woman." Mrs. Wlleox adds
that young girls could but be forced
into precocious tendencies if placed iri

sex during that important stage of

ences of opinion, but it would seem

girls to grow up like boys. The tend

The argument is n^t new. for it ij
Identical with that of the promoters of
higher edttcatiod for woman when they
declare that woman should be trained
to take care of herself in every emer

the head of a fatherless family. It can
be set against this argument that
American women have come oft pretty
well In these crises heretofore under
the old fashioued system of training for
woman's natural sphere. Every com
munity has its capable, managing, suc
cessful widowej mother* who werv

cle. In the hour of need they had the
strength to meet the occasion—strength

The future for girls cannot be antic
ipated and safeguarded like that of
boys. "Love is of man's life a thing
apart; 'tis woman's whole existence."
A boy will marry and come to him
self by hustling: a girl marries and.

and suffering. Out of one or all of
these virtues will develop strength for

womanly will be the woman.
