The beauty of Spanish-American women
has always been of Intense interest to the
northerner, and, although upon my arrival
in Havana.I failed to see those Creole beau
ties for which Latin America baa long been
famous, I aoon discovered that they existed
there aa well as on the mainland, writes a
New York Journal correspondent. What
was of as ranch interest to me as their
beauty was tho part they took in politics.
In Santa Clara I saw many examples of
tbe pluck and heroism of these fair Cuban
rebels. While the Spanish press continual
ly published accounts of the insurgents be
ing chased nil over the island, I found
Santa Clara in a continual state of alarm
over tho threatened a: tacks of the enemy.
In the daytimo tbe rebels could be seen on
the hills outside the city, and at night It
was not a rare thing for them to fire upon
the forts. The Spaniards had bvJM barri
cades closing tbe entrance to the central
plaza, and tho fair Cubans on many an oc
casion openly ridiculed tbe soldiers and of
ficers for tills display of cowardice.
One night there was an alarm, and as I
stepped Into the street I saw everything
wearing a Spanish uniform running for
tbe barricades. Down tbe street came a
troop of merry Cuban maidens, laughing
as thongh they were out on a frolla
"What Is tbe raatterf" said I.
"Nothing," said one of the girls. "But
look! Seethe Spaniards run I And they
say that they chase tbe insurgents all over
the island. But who is it running now?"
While I was in Cardenas one of Cuba's
fair heroines was arrested for buying car
tridges from the soldiers. The cartridges
were bought regularly and shipped by reg
ular routes to the insurgents, to be used
npon tbe pimple minded soldiers who had
sold them. This woman was confined in a
dungeon. In tbe last war the women of
Cardenas wero subjected to such indigni
ties as being dragged to tbe plaza and hav
ing their hair cut off for tbe simple offense
of having it tied np with a bit of bine rib
bon. In Matanzas I knew a woman who pro
cured a Winchester carbine and 200 rounds
of ammunition. These sho secreted under
her skirts and bad her black coachman
drive her to tbe blockhouse guarding tbe
road which leads to the insurgent country
beyond. When she came to tbe fort, she
waved her hand to tho soldiers and cheerily
asked if she could ride beyond to enjoy tbe
fresh air of the fields
Of coarse no Spaniard would refuse a
pretty woman such a simple request, and
Donna Clarita's coachman was allowed to
drive on. There was a country house not
far beyond the fort, where Clarlta stopped,
and, going into one of the rooms, relieved
herself of her awkward burden. Then she
came out and cautioned tbe green looking
peasant in charge to see that her Mends
did not delay in getting that which she
bad left in t lie room under the bedclothes.
She drove back to town, and her heroic
deed was public, among the Cabana and
Nor have the Cuban women always been
content to remain within the Spanish
lines. Many of them, wives and maidens,
have sacrificed home for the hardship of
the field. At the siege of Candilana a fair
maiden rode a snow white steed and led a
company of insurgents in attack upon the
Spanish trenches. It was reported that
she had been killed, and when I was in
Macco's camp I inquired particularly about
her. They told me that she had not been
killed, and that she was still in tbe field
attending to the sick and wounded.
Notable among the hcr-iincs who have
fought in the racks of Cuban patriots are
Kstrella Moreno and Gloria Kulano. whose
beauty and courage have rallied their com
rades on many fields of battle.
It is these fair rebels in CaSsS who hava
done so much to moke Spain 's task a hope
less rue. The Spaniards who have come to
Cuba to colonize hae invariably taken
Cnban wives, and their children ' Imhilje

mother s milk. If the Spanish husband
be a tyrant to bis Cuban wife, as is fre
quently the case, then sl.s hates all the
harder, whereas if tbe Spaniard be kind
and gentle he is apt to ran lite tbe tyranny
of his country and join with his Cuban
wife in her principles of insurrection aad

The mirror has formed an Important
part of tbe stock In trade of the magician
and sorcerer for many centuries. Tbe ma
gicians of today use the mirror to help out
some stage illusion, but tbe old time pro
fessors of the black art claimed for It cer
tainlntrlnsia magic qualities.
Paracelsus, In one of bis treatises on
magie, gives the following account of bow
the reflecting surface was employed by the
old witches to bring evil upon some one
sgainst whom they bad a spite. Says be:
" ineytake a mirror set In a wooden
frame and put It Into a tub of water so
that It will swim on tbe top with Its face
directed toward tbe sky. On tbe top of the
mirror and encircling the glass they lay a
cloth saturated with blood, and thus they
expose it to the Influence of tbe moon, and
this evil Influence Is thrown toward tbe
moon, and radiating again from the moon

"If a mirror is strongly poisoned In this
manner, the witch takes good cam of It,
and if she desires to injure some one sho
takes a waxen image made in his name,
she surrounds It with a cloth spotted with
blood and throws tho reflex of the mirror
through the opening in the middle upon
the head of the figure or upon some other
part of its body, using at the same tlmo
ber evil imagination and curses, and tho
man whom tho Imago represents may then

that are happening miles and miles away.
An old German writer has recorded the
practices of certain magicians as follows:
"Young boys are KaUl to behold future
things and all things in n crystal. Base,
desperate and faint hearted Christians prac
tice it, to whom the shadow and the phan
tom of the devil ere dearer than tho truth
of God. Soma take a clear and beautifully
polished beryl, which they cr nsecrate and
keep clean, and treat with increase and
myrrh and the like, and when they propose
to practice their art they wait for a clear
day, or select some clean chamber In which

bathe and take a pnre child into tbe room
with them and clothe themselves In pore
white garments and sit down and apeak In
magic sentences, and then burn tbeir
mogic offering, and make the boy look In
to tbe stone, which doing, he tolls them
It may be a surprise to some to learn
that crystal gazing is practiced to a con
siderable extent even in tbe enlightened
present The matter has been taken up
by tbe Society of Psychical Research and
given a great deal of attention.
One of tho cases wbloh came under its
investigation was that of a Miss Goodrich
of London, the success of whose experi
ments in crystal rending was truly mar
velous. When Miss Goodrich began these experi
ments, she tried first the back of a watch,
next a glass of water, then a mirror, aad
finally a polished rock crystal. Finding
tbe lost the best speculum for divination,
she draped tbe crystal in black, set It
where no surrounding objects could bo re
flected in it, and whenever she felt the
need of advice or Information consulted
it We give below two of her notes, which
are very interesting, as being -he testi
mony of an educated woman of our own
time onto matter which Is much beyond
On one occasion Miss Goodrich had care
lessly destroyed a letter without preserv
ing tbe address of her correspondent. De
siring to answer the letter, sbo consulted
tbe crystal to eee If it would supply her
with the missing information. Says abet
"I knew the county, and searching a map
recognized the name of the town, one un
familiar to me, but which I was sure I
should know when I saw It But I had
no clew to the name of the bouse or street
till at last it struck me to test the value of
the crystal as a means of recalling forgot
ten knowledge. A very short inspection
supplied me witli'Hibbs House' In gray
letters on a white ground, and having
nothing better to suggest from any other
source I risked posting my letter to the
address so strangely supplied. A day or
two brought me an answer hooded 'Hibbs
House' in gray letters on a white ground. "
"In January last," writes the same
lady, "I saw in tbe crystal the figure of a
man crouching at a small window and
looking into the room from the outside. I
could not see bis features, which appeared
to be muffled, but the crystal was particu

Always alive to the best interests of the
public The Argus has determined upon a
plan by which some bright boy or girl
in Rock Island may visit the na
tional capital at Washington. D. C.
absolutely free. As one of the great
est presidential campaigns that ever occurred
has just closed, and one that will live in his
tory, it is only natural that the greatest in
terest will be manifested in the inauguration
of President-elect William McKinley. That
being the case. The Akcrs has decided to
pay the entire expense of the trip, includ
ing a four days' stay in Washington, to
the boy or girl between the aes of If and ai
years who secures the most new subscribers
to The Argi s between now and Saturday,
Feb. 2o, 1897,
On the Following
1. The winner must be a resident of
a. He or she must not be less than 15
or more than 21 yeagg of age.
3. All subscriptions must be for six
weeks or more.
4. No credit will be allowed for sub
scriptions of persons who discontinue THE
ARGUS after this date.
5. The contest will close at 6 p. m. Sat
urday. Feb. 20. 1897. All names must be at
the office by that hour.
6. A consolation prize to the one getting
next to the largest number of subscribers
will be given in the form of a trip to any
place the winner desires within a radius of
200 miles of Rock Island.
7. A committee to be composed of Su
perintendent of Schools R. G. Young, Hon.
William McEniry and Rev. R. 1". Sweet

the interest of fairness to all the contestants,
their decision to be absolute.
8. Every contestant must register at

the proper blanks before beginning work.
9. The names of subscriters must be

sary for the contestant to get a total of 50
The contest will be decided so that th
lucky boy or girl may leav: the city in time
to be in Washington Wednesday morning.
March 3. The trip will - made over the
Great R'h k Im.ani Rm tb in connection
with the Baltimore & Ohio, one of the
Ix-st scenic routes known, both of which
trunk lines have made exhaustive arrangr
ments for the comfort of the traveling public
at that time. The trip itself over these lim
will alone be a feature, making, as they do,
one of the best routes that could be planned.
If the winner wishes to arrive in Washington
Thursday. March 4. the day of inauguration,
this may also be done, which would make it
possible 10 lie there over the following Sun
day. The details may arranged by the
winner. Remember th'- whole expense of
