HAVANA, May 28. Strictly speaking, Cuba oijht to be green, but as a matter of fact it is not It is a dull, rusty brovra, and gives the appro.vching voy ager an impression of barren ster.'lity more than anything else. How it came by itsrep- Satation for luxuriant vegetation I do not know, for the suns of all ages must have subjected the land to the same scorching (process as that which withers and blights it to-day. One has in one's 'mind a lurid sKy, monstrous m.uses of tropical foliage, sparkling groves of tgolden oranges, hanging moss, rare birds of brilliant plumage, with here and there a "monkey unattended by an organ grinder, or perhaps an alligator or baby chimpanzee. And instead one sees a low rocky hill rising up out of the water, crowned by bald knolls and naked peaks of a brownish green hue, and a clump of palms or lonely Ceiba flap ping its scant leaves acainst the gray sky. JSb birds (except perhaps a. stray cow), or alligators, or snakes, 6r monkeys, or any thing original and thrilling. When one gets ont in the country, however, the palms multiply and appear in great numbers, and leagues of sugar cane, green as emerald, spread as far as the ere can see. , THE STATELY TAMI. The palm is the most beantiful tree in Cuba. One cannot look on the tall, statelv plant, crowned with its clamp of plumed leaves, without vividly recalling Syria and the Kile. Sometimes it stands in groups, sometimes in Ions shady avenues. The trunks are of a pearlish hue, which shines like silver in the light of the sun, and the large fan-shape leaves present a great varie ty of elegant forms. Frequently they are flat and broad, and again split into slender filiaments. The poor of Cuba use the wood to build their cabins, and the leaves to thatch them. Some of the fibers are made into mats and baskets. The palm is also associated in one's mind with the ancient custom of carrying the branches on occa sions of festivity. Thus Christ's entrance into Jerusalem is still commemorated, in all P.oman Catholic churches, on the Sunday before Easter. In making a tour of the country of Cuba one invariably spends a day on a sugar plantation. Cuba is the home of sugar. About 39 miles from Havana there is a very large estate where this product is manufact ured. Jl CUBAJf TKAIN. The cars which carry the passenger over the intervening line of railroad, are all of American make (neither Spain nor Cnba produces mechanics), and are exceedingly well adapted to the climate, being light, airy structures, with comfortable, wide cane seats. There are never more than half a dozen passengers aboard at a time (the Havanos are a stay-at-home people), so the conductor, who is brakeman, and for all I know engineer, too, manages to fulfill his several duties creditably. The bell he rings to start the cars is -after - msffc rB fvWs t(?9fi5?TY JL Cuban Convtgance. gallantry in a railway. Of course it does not reach its destination quite as soon in conseguence, but it gets there within a few hours of the time due, and this is perfectly satisfactory to the average Cuban, who goes slowly himself and neither expects nor looks for speed in others. AN ELEGANT TUENOUT. The sugar plantation of the Island is al together a colossal affair. The bare ma chinery often costs from 5250,000 to 5500,000. Xjeavmg me train at a station caiica -inarm-naow, one is driven several miles over a road composed of a succession of ruts, qual ified to overturn any but tha vehicle we have selected, inasmuch as there is nothing about it to overturn or come apart. It is a sort of box fastened to a ponderous pair of wheels drawn by two sturdy little horses about the size of a full-grown pony. These horses which one sees on the Island, are the smallest, thinnest, weakest looking animals imaginable. Tbey are a rack of bones and wheeze and cough like human consumptives, but they never play out or die. They out live their masters, defy fate and fortune and go on like the brook lorever. "When they grow to be veritable fossils they are presented to the "Plaza de Toros," where they are used to fight bulls. We had heard that road making was a lost art among the Spaniards, and we believed it after a drive along that which led from Marianaow. "We could have borne it better had our prancing steeds been less spirited, but as it was we speculated mentally the whole way on the probable cost of Pond's extract or arnica, and won dered if our funds would meet the necessary demand. COU2JTBY SCENES. "We flew along at such a lively rate that we had only a passing glimpse of the scenes through which we were being rapidly whirled. "We occasionally caught sight of a solitary palm, with a group ot little naked negroes in the background; a ragged cactus hedge, a lean, hungry pig, a tumble down outhouse, and squalid, poorly clad women, dirty, lazy, idle, lounging on the broken doorsteps, or sleeping on the bare ground. Thrift, energy, plenty are Tin known. Everyone is poor, and revels in it. No one longs to be better off than he is. AH are satisfied, self-sufficient, and shift less. The lodge of the sugar plantation is usu ally kept by an aged retainer, who opens the gates, and as we pass through invites us to enter his humble dwelling. It is a wretch edly poor habitation, consisting of four posts with a roof of palm husks, standing flat on the red earth. It has neither floor, partition nor window. Like all the pro vincials of Cuba, the lodgekeeper is a low spoken, gentle voiced man, who probably never wore a pair of shoes, but whose in born politeness prompts him to life his hat and Btand bare headed before us. He is ragged and dirty, but picturesque, and in this case very handsome. "When we pass into his poor abode he is delighted. He offers us the only chairs it contains, sum mons his wife and children and graciously presents us. ,His kind hospitality, quiet, well-bred ease and unaffected manner would do credit to a nobleman ot rank and posi tion. There is no politeness as charming as that which is inborn. THE STJGAE PLANTATION. One's first view of the sugar plantation once bevond the lodge consists of nothing but fields ot thousands of acres of waving sugar cane. Then tall white chimneys loom up in the distance, and finally the "batey" or square, in which stand the buildings, machinery and residences. The first person we meet is a good-lookingyoung fellow with a profusion of reddish brown hair and very bright blue eyes, who greets us to our sur prise in English, and whom we learn is the head engineer, and, as usual, an American. "We are delighted. So is he. At least he says he is, which amounts to the same thing; for he escorts us over the works, explain ing everything as he goes. First we are taken into a huge foundry, which resembles a kind of rolling mill. There is a steaming, snorting engine, emit ting an occasional fierce glow of fire, a crowd of bare legged negroes and Chinamen mov ing to and fro, some shoveling the sngar cane into the ponderous rollers, which crush out the jnice, and send it foaming and bubbling down into the great iron ket tles, others stirring up the thick dark syrup with long poles, and weird, fantastic move ments, or gathering "bagazo," or crushed cane, to be dried in the sun and used as fuel. THE WOKKMEN'S QUAETEES. Then we are escorted over the negro quar ters, which are practically the same as they were before the blacks were liberated. Thev are well-built, stone-flonred structures, en circled by iron gates, which are closed and SALTMATHISHOME Olive Weston's Reminiscences of the Great Italian Actor. A FAMILY OP GEAND ARTISTS.

The laborers are often clothed and housed as in the days ot bondage. I am of the opinion that a great many ot them do not know that they are free, or what being free actually is. They have been born on the plantation, as their fathers and grandfathers before them, and they know literally nothing beyond it. They are paid a small sum for their work, and are not driven into" their quarters by means of the overseers' whip as formerly; otherwise their condition remains un changed. v The lonely monotony of the vast stretch of country led us to commiserate with our fellow countryman, doomed to spend the better part ot his lite in the isolated wilds, among a semi-barbaric people, who did not speak his tongue. But he told us he had become accustomed to the unchanging scene, and war attached to it Besides it was often broken in upon by bands of des peradoes, who made it lively enough for all concerned. "We learned that he was always armed, and never wandered about the premises un less accompanied by the ferocious blood hounds, who set us shivering when regarded chained to the kennels, and reminded us so forcibly of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" as to make us homesick, and send us off to the station at a rate of speed which gave us two hours to sun ourselves on a backless wooden bench waiting for the train. Lillian Spencee. tWBITTEN FOB THE DISPATCH. "Casa Salvini" is all you have to say in any part of Florence, and the cabman will smile with pleasure and put you down at the great actor's door. When he walks the streets with his princely tread, one would think him a king, a beloved king passing through his subjects; they smile and bow and look upon him with so much respect and veneration "e nostro Salviui." But Salvini says that no country really recognizes art in these days, not even Italy as much as is supposed. Himself, Boss! and Kistori are the only Italian actors who have acquired fortunes, but these have been mostly gained in foreign tours. He has a splendid house in Florence and a villa on the hills. A glass door opens into a Wide marble ball with some parlors at the end the servant who received your card comes back, he opens the great glass doors, and through a vista of rooms yon see Salvini waiting for you in his study. The house is very plain, and the master has that simple dignity which makes his creations oitne stage at.once so natural and so majestic. A great simplicity and mod esty characterize every room, a" few J photo graphs of actresses hang about, but nowhere can be seen any bust or likeness of Salvini. He is extremely averse to be taken, even in photography, and absolutely refuses to sit for an artist The Emperor of Austria has threatened to send a company of gens d'armes to seize him and hold him while his court painter transfers him to canvas. A FAMILY OP AETIST3. Some years ago Salvini married an En glish lady and has alarge family of children. All of his children are artistic in some way. His daughter often acts in private and has a delightful style, especially in comedy. Alexander, of course, is well known here and steadily advancing in reputation: Another son is making a great furor in Italy, playing his father's roles and de clared by the Italians to be his worthy suc cessor. His son Mario, a dark, handsome youth, is a sculptor of great promise; his work is of the extremely realistic school, but shows a dramatic breaking through of tradition, and be has inherited from his father a feeling for powerful expression in gesture. His best work is called "The Strike. A laborer in bronze, clumsy and muscular, has torn cp a paving stone and suspends it in the air before hurling it. His work has now the exaggeration of burnin? youth, but will tone down into something very strong and fine with greater experience. The Casa Salvini contains a very happy and united family, and Salvini governs it with great dignity. There are few women in the world who would not like to have a lover like Salvini he is not like the ordinary actor, all af fected, sensational and self-conscious in his strongest passion. Salvini has the grand dignity and power, the majestic, colossal, whirlwind-like sweep of emotion, and yet such a grasp on himself, such control, that it makes bim seem, a man a god, and one must simply fall ut his feet and say, ''1 am thine, do with me as thofl wilt." I stood in the wings one night when he played the "Gladiator," and it seemed to me as he passed me as if he carried with him a mag netism which must sweep all lesser objects to him. I felt as if the breath ot flame were in my hair, as if I were being sucked into a J whirlpool, when he stopped and spoke to me with a manner so simple and a courtesy so profound that I felt a queen. Who could withstand such heights and depths? SAVING A SCENE. In "Othello"we find especially this union of passion and dignity how it is revealed in his panther-like walkl In "Hamlet" now sweetly he plays the scholar, in spite of our feeling that his reserve power is too great for the role. In the "Gladiator" all that is grand in man as a human tortured animal is grandest in him. It is always a question how much an actor should think and how much feel presence of mind is a great necessity on the stage. A great scene is often ruined if, in the height of passion, when the actor feels most he cannot also think. One night while Sal vini was playing the dagger scene in 'Mac beth" he felt his cloak slipping to the ground. If he had picked it up it would have broken into his aoting in a common place manner; if he had let it lie where it fell it would have attracted attention to it self as a bright spot on the stage. Without a moment's hesitation he conceived a piece ot action to cover me accident He shiv ered as it fell to his feet as from the touch of an unseen presence; then, glancing ner vously around, crouching lower ana lower, he suddenly in terror caught it up, wrap ping it around him, stood 'trembling, while the house applauded and thought he was playing better than ever. Fechter had a wonderful power of making the most of an accident He once acted in a play; where the grand effect was a vessel sweeping across the stage in full sail witn tne nero standing in the prow. The sea in those days was an old biue and green streaked canvas, with a lot of little boys bobbing up and down under it to make the waves. The canvas was very rotten and as the vessel came in full sight all of a sudden a little head bobbed through a hole and was seen alone on the waste of waters. The scene would have been turned into the rankest comedy, but Fechter, with a cry, stood up and shrieked "Alan overboard!" leaning over the vessel's side, seized the boy and tore him through the canvas, held him aloft in a tableau so splendid that the-audi-ence forgot the absurdity and- the scene was saved. SALVINI AS OTHELLO. Salvini's most criticised work is his death in "Othello." The last act is very exciting and sometimes actors forget their words when carried away by emotion. A provincial actor gave away to such an ex tent that in the last speeches he could only command the sound and not the sense a thing which often happens to clever actors, when instead of stopping they fill in with a word ot similar length and accent, but sometimes very amusing in the combina tion. He found himself unstrung, knowing that he did not recollect the words or the lines about "shedding tears as fast as the Arabian tree his medicinal gum," and saved himself with "shed tears as fast as the Venetian trees their Abyssinian gums." Salvini was a pupil ot the 'great actor Gustave Modena. who also instructed Kistori and Bossi, but Salvini was the pride of his life. .Salvini's repertoire contains more than 200 roles. In the same city and not far away lives Bossi in his youth the favorite stage lover ot Italy the greatest Borneo. He is also possessed of great wealth. His house is packed with trophies ot his triumphs crowns of gold, laurel wreaths, daggers and jewels, for his greatest tours have been in .Russia and South America, where they love to throw gold at their favorites. He always replies when asked if he can speak English "Ay, aivery inch a keeng" the only words he knows, and with which he used to astonish his American audiences, suddenly bursting out with them in his Italian Lear. Bistori was the daughter of a strolling player. "When quite young a wealthy Ital ian noble, the Marquis dell Gollo, fell in love with her, married her and took her away from the stage. She had great beauty and wit, and such a voice! After a number of years she appeared with amateurs in a charity performance in Kome, and acted so superbly that all the public clamored for her return to the stage, and even her noble relations withdrew their opposition in the .face of such genius. No actress has ever aroused the social fnrore which Bistori ex cited at that time. A LIFE OF EASE. Now Bistori simplv leads the life of a great society lady she has wealth a num ber of palaces in Borne, servants in livery, carriages and every luxury that appertains to her high position. When Mary Ander son was in Borne Bistori was very kind to her and frankly admired her as a fresh, sweet young girl. She neversaw her play ing, perhaps she devined she could not, for she is rather jealous of new rivals, even though she herself is retired from the stage. She detests Bernhart. Some time ago, while excavating the cel lar of one of her palaces, a fine collection of antique bronzes was discovered. Strangely enough, most of them were of dramatic sub jects. Theyare now in her art gallery. I heard a young American artist in Paris tell a very amusing story of Salvini. The young artist had lived in a New England boarding house where there was a fat old Yankee widow who had never been to the theater in her life, was a devout church .woman, and disapproved of "play actors." She was most severely moral, yet enjoved scandals, and delighted in reading aloud" at the breakfast table the most ample newspa per "revelations," and especially reveled in a good divorce trial with "details" at the same time disproving of them with great se verity. It was at the time of some domestic infelicity of Marie Prescott, Salvini's lead ing lady. The old dame read aloud in full the trial, then turning suddenly on our art ist asked: "Who is this Marie Prescott?" "O, she supports Salvini," he replied. "Supports Salvini! why, what do you mean? I thought he was very rich. Isn't he that great I-talian actor?" Olive Weston. FOB TIRED BRAIN Ue Horsford's Acid Pho.phate. Dr. O. C. Btout Syracuse. N.
