CUBA AND THE SPORTSMAN.
It is a Paradise for Husters of Wid Game.
While Cuba offers such a haven to
the invalid, it is a paradise for the
sportsman, wild game and fish of all
kinds being abundant.
Parties of gentlemen on horseback,
with their pack of hounds, hunt the
fleet-footed deer. It is a common
y thing for a small party to kill eight or
ten deer in a day.
The wild boar is plentiful, and some
times, if cornered, dangerous, espe
rk lally the old master of the herd,
of called "un solitario," which will tear
a dog to pieces or make a green hunt
er climb a tree, but a Cuban easily
kills him with a machete. The island
boar sometimes weighs 200 or 300
j pounds, and has huge tusks, often five
' or six inches in length. The meat of
the female is much relished by the
a natives. Wild dogs and cats, wild cat
tie, horses, and Jackasses abound. But
the jutia, peculiar only to Cuba, which
. looks like a cross between a squlirel
with a rat's tall and a rabbit, and
which lives in the trees and feeds on
nuts and leaves, is the great delight
of the Cuban.
Fowl§ are in great numbers. Wild
guinea hens and turkeys are found in
flocks of from 25 to 100. The whistle
of the quail and the flutter of the
pheasant and perdiz are heard on all
sides in the rural and mountain re
gions. Ducks In abundance come over
from Florida in the winter and return
with the spring. Wild pigeons, with
their white tops and bodies of blue,
larger somewhat than the domestic
bird, offer, in hunting, the greatest
sport to gentlemen who will be re
strained within reason. In the early
mornings the pigeons generally go to
feed on the mangle berries when ripe,
and which grow by the sea or near
some swampy place. r have known a
party of three persons to kill 1,500 of
the pigeons within a few hours.
Robiches, tojosas and guanaros are
found in the thick woods.
Mocking and blue birds, orioles, tur
plals, negritos, parrots, and a thou
sand kinds of songsters and birds of
brilliant plumage flit from tree to tree.
The naturalist Poey says there are
641 distinct species of fish in the Cuban
waters. Among those that delight the
sportsman are the red snapper, lista,
manta, gallego, cubera, surela, and
garfish, The sierra,, which weighs
from forty to sixty pounds, is extreme.
ly game, as Is the ronco, so called be

the water, For heavy sport, fishing
for sharks, which are good for noth.
ing, or the gusa, which weighs from
400 to 000 pounds and is excellent eat
ing, offers abundant exercise. It is a t
daily occurrence to see schools of fish,
numbering from hundreds to many
thousands, each fish weighing from
one, to four pounds, swimming around
the bays and harbors waiting for a
bait. Any American who enjoys good
fishing can :find his fondest dreams'

Boll in the San Joaquln Valley Moist'
eaed by Subterranean Streams.
Investigations made by Professor
Milton Whitney, who is in charge of
the division of soils in the Department
of Agriculture, have revealed the curl.
ous phenomenon that the soils of the
San Joaquin valley and of the great
Palouse district (comprising the fertile
wheat-growing regions) contain a con
I siderable quantity of moisture in ex.
cess of the amount received from rain.
fall or surface irrigation. A similar
penomenon has been observed in the
Yllowstone valley and in parts of the
Red River valley, and this would seen
to explain the mystery why these re
glons, which are semiarid, rarely suf.
t fr from dirouth.
But this explanation solves one my*
tery only to present another which it
even more inexplicable. In the Mo
jave desert, for instance, where the an
nual average rainfall is only five inch.
eas, the soil beneath the alkaline crust
is always moist. In Southern Califor
nia, where the summer rainfall is lees
than an inch, tobacco and sugar beets,
which require much water, grow luxu.
rlantly without irrigation.
This phenomenon has been ascribed
tentatively to the peculiar quality of
the soil to absorb moisture and retals
it, notwithstanding the low humiditj
of the atmosphere. But whence does
this excess of moisture come? Arte
slan wells in all the regions under con
sideration show water at depths vary,
ing between forty and 200 feet, and it
is conjectured by the department In
vestigators that there may be a slow
and continuous upward movement of
moisture from subterranean sources
Since water, however, never percolates
upward it must be assumed that the
soils of a large part of the arid and
semiarid regions of the country consist
of a vast sheet of absorbent material
which draws up moisture from below
like blotting paper, by capillary attrac
tion. The invlstigations of the dlvi
selo of soils in these arid regions wil
