An Interexting Letter.
Tampa, May 25.-The conditions
of Cuban guorrillt warfare ro so
different from those under which the
regular army will do its fighting that
tho equipment required for it may
havo the iterest of novelty.
To begin with, therd's the horso.
The Cubans raise their aybrows and
shrug their shoulders when they
refer to the policy of the United
States ar y in buying big and un
aeclimated northern horses for sor
vice on the islnud. Do it known to
your Uncle Sa,according to soe
ancient peact regulation about as
suitabl tove present caso as the
hoavy blue uniform is to a tropic
suimer, will not buy a horse under
15 hands in hoight, and these bie
gets in Kentucky, Tennessee and the
eit. The Cuban of campaign ex
perionno rejects a big horse a nda
stall foed hors. He seks toughnes,
wiriess, abovo everything else; the
aadlity to do hard work on grass
vlone. The Cuban horse never gets
grain or hay on a campaign. He is
tethered out tat night and must find
his food for the vext 24 hours within
the range of his ropo. The graFss
are abundant on the island, so wvith1
a radius of 25 fot t grazo on th
pn11Y mnanages vory woll.
After at considoration of all thoe -
Co ,sitios of tho sorvico I find myself
t ho possetisor of at Floridat stockmnan's
pony,l11al ovor 141 h ands high, tough
surofooted, quick, ready to gio ally
where, with a fox-trot for an ordi
nary gait and a tendoncy-which
would, be Astonishing but for his
raising in this Saharan land-to break
into a cantor whenever hn strikes sand
a foot donp. Ho wasn't bought for
ornament, but, n6vortholess h is a
very seemly fellow, with a flowing
mane and a tail that touches the
ground, and puts on stylo enough
'when on parado to attract attention
in this protempore cavalry town. I
:tm much obliged to the government
for rejecting him on account of size.
Weight dosen't sooni to make any
differenco to him and ho keops up
that fox- trot of his for hours on a
strOtclh without the spur. I had an.
other of these rancher's ponies in
view, a fellow that couldl stop in a
run withiu his own length and double
on his tracljs like a flash, but one of
Sthese newspaper Croesuses snapped
him up on five minute's acquaint
ance before I could give him a final
trial. These are the hor.ses needed
fo 'uril work in Cuba, and if
the United States cavalry does much
wvork on the island it will cry for
something bettor adapted to the ser
vice than its heavy parade mounts.
With the pony for Cuban servico
~goes an army saddle, a bridle wvith a
-dettach ablo b)it, permitting its use for
haltering also, and a long grass-rope
ihaltor, with a snap catch to one end
of it, ready to make a quick tether.
Then there are the saddle-bags.
