Scnorita, Cuban beauty,
Are you in your garden dreaming,
As upon that lovely evening
When I watched your bright eyes gleaming
While we drank our manzanllla
, 'Neath the palms?do you remember?
'Round About us all the clorv
Of a tropical December.
Through the sighing palms above us.
Came the moonlight, Hoft and tender,
Llko tho ocoan's pho?phores<>nce
Seemed the Htartt far-wpreadlng splendor.
And the Santiago mountains
O'er the gleaming coart-llne gloated,
.While a murmur like soft music
From tho Caribbean flouted.

of Expansion of Trade.
New York Journal of Cummers: The
attention of our friends In New England A
l? directed to the explanation offered by
the treasury department in regard tt>
certain change* in lite course of curamerce,
"that our trade with Mods gas- A
car has virtually ceased since the
French took possession. Singularly ^
tnough, almost all of our statesmen and
i. good many business men were ready a
year ago tt> welcome the encroachments
of Russia in China as progress In the
direction of civilisation, and likely to
create a greater demand for our products,
and yet Russia's commercial policy
hi even more decidedly restrictive than
that of France, and the French have al
ready succeeded la driving us out. of
This explanation regarding our Ion
of Madagascar trade ts coupled with figures,
showing a substantial Increase In
our exports to South Africa, and the ol
competition of steamship com parries, ei
which are struggling eagerly to lnorease .,
our export trade, and which Rive our
shippers lower freight rates than they ?
give English shippers. The exports to di
Africa go to British possessions, where tj
they are not subjected to legislation designed
to retain a monopoly of trade for
British merchants. VFt could not pus- si
slbly have a more effective object lea- f<
aotl to the value of the "open-door" pol- .
Icy to us than this Increase of our exports
to BrlUsh Africa, promoted by the ti
competition of British steamship lines, b<
and the shrinkage of SO per cent In our
exports to Madagascar In Ule course of
one year. ?
But while we direct the attention of 01
New* England to the effect of foreign ai
trade policies upon our commercial Interests,
we do !t with small hoj>e of re- 01
suiting enlightenment. The objection to w
making our position In the Orient sure lv
and preventing the establishment ??f any .
more Madagascar* Is sentlmentaJ, and '
It ! not likely to be disturbed by facts. "
It Is made up largely of prejudice, and "
to try to convince Us victims that the f
retention of the Philippines, whose con- *
quest was merely an incident of the ,
war over Cuba, 1? neither Imperialism ! *'
nor colonization, Is as hopeless as It 11,1
would be to try <to convince a Paris 1
crowd that Dreyfus was not a traitor. "
rhe facts of the two cases will not be P'
considered; In the one case to argue P*
that Dreyfus Is an innocent appears
ilmnlv nn nnnlnirv fnr pfrftnunn: In lhf> I tr
artier an objection to the abandonment
>f the Philippines appears m an appeal
to go forth seekeing conquest* and to .
make war In order to advl to our nation- JU
il domain. w
The course of England during the oc
pa&t year haa made it extremely doubt- sc
ful whether she can maintain the "open ct
Joor" in-Asia and Africa single-handed, m
For this reason some Englishmen urge m
a. combination with the Dreibund. That, th
however, carries with it large r?apon- tl:
sibJlltles and obligations' from Which the m
British government has thus far held cl
aloof. It has been probable for some to

\ more valuable place than at previous ni
he navy yards and existing ships $1,000,- tl
>ry shipshape. The navy yard In j|'
i Squadron, greatly needs overhauling* w
States would be sufficient, and the refer- -J*1
ence of Lord Salisbury to this country
at the Mansion Ilouse banquet corroborates
this Impression. The very general
desire of English men that we should retain
the Philippines Is based upon, the
conviction that this would determine
our policy regarding the encroachments b
of the dual alliance in the east. Thar, u
the two countries would have the co- cl
operation of Germany and Jupan hardly c
admits of a doubt, and there Is scarcely n
more doubt that such an association? T;
we do not say alllunct?would be su'fll- d
dent to prevent an extension of the ex- u
elusive policy of Russia and France. ?,
The policy which seems to bo most! Ii
popular in New England at present Is pi
that we should make what we can In ri
trade with British Africa and British o
Asia, hut should Incur no expense or s>
rink in supporting: the open comra rclal ri
policy of Great Britain, and should sub- "
mlt to have our mercantile gradually tl
shut out of all portions or Asia and Af- s<
rlea where they do not- have English t!
protection. "Whatever foreign trade we p
can get under the English Hag and un- f<
der British protection and at British ex- c
pense we will take, and what we cannot I<
get that way we will go without and the ?
mills of New England will shut down a a
good deai oftener Ini an effort to con- a
tract the production to the demands of 1;
the home market Whether such a h
policy would he permanently satisfac- J'
tory to a people as rich and productive, h
as enterprising and independent, as the ?
people of the United States, we greatly tl
doubt, but we shall never know, for the 13
policy will not be adopted by the na- Ji
tion. _ si

Spectator: Among the forest tribes lr

[ects Its chief on principles uot men- hi
oned In the most exhaustive ^treatise jjj
i "village communities." It is sec pi
eep In the forest, and In the center of! tu
le clearing stands one enormous tree,
Ith a branchless trunk running up
ralght for some one hundred and fifty m
set. This giant tree supplies what may t*
? rnllM the communal fund of the
Ibe, for among: Its branches the wild
eeB have built their combs for genera- re
ons, and as the tree and the village a]
row older together, and the claimants J
a the fund increase, so do the number w
nd weight of the combs from the labor ru
' the procreant bees. The only human
ork needed to gather the hrtrvest of | Jn
ax?the honey they value little-?is a
iat required to climb the towering *h
ce, and when once there, to smoke the ui
ees and shake down the wax. Con- rc
?quently? the election of the headman
determined in the first instance by b(
Is skill as a climber; and though after v<
ectlon he usually succeeds In investing W
s ofllce with religious or magical saneons,
and endeavors to bequeath It to hi
Is son, there Is no reason u-hy the **
331 should not be put up to free comstitlon,
and awarded, at least in its "c
jalifying stages, to the man who "did"

aquatic and subterranean. South
;i babies which cannot walk will roll
to the sea and swim, collier boys at
urtoen will take pick and lamp and pu
iscend Into the mine almost as natur- ve
ly as young moles; but we believe
tat, In spite of the danger from wild m<
?asts in forest regions, and the fact th
lat in such places there is ten times br
ore life on the level of the tree tops ke
tan on the ground, there is no single 8l;
stance .of a tribe which, properly jrj
leaking,! has become "arboreal" and 0arnt
to climb like monkevs. Though re
>t a few make huts in trees, they op- u
onch these by ladders; and except in Ul
le huts which they use as a refuge and
L'eplng place, they spend their time on ,n
e ground. Even in forests where the
)per levels of the trees arc so closely ,,
ceil together that n, comparatively
iglit adaptation would enable the In- .
ana -to progress from tree to tree, and .
here nearly the whole of the fruit, and L
le greater part of the birds and anl- ....
als, used for food are found only in ,
lis "upper story," mnn Is not. and al- , '
ays refuses to become, a "climbing rr
limal." JJJ
Natural repugnance to this form of nc
iterprise seems characteristic of snv- ^
fe men, and even of animals which
in no risks whatever. African natives of
ho have only lived In one-storied huts, it,
low tno greatest qisuko 10 going up
airs, and have been known to cr^p ur
? on hands nnd kne^s, while large dogs a
hen required to ascend stairs for the th
rat time often refuse to do so except
ider strong persuasion and with cvi- th
?nt reluctance. A half-bred greyaund,
now Immortalized In n well ey
nown statue of Artemis, would refuse ou
bsolutely to descend the stairs when or
r? had once gone up, and had to be car- He
ed down. In the case of the dog this th
isllke to the very modified form of ^
Imblng needed for ascending a stair- Kr
ise ran be accounted for on physical th
rounds. A very slleht fall, even a sp
imp from a cart, will snap a dog's th
ireleg below the shoulder, and they Bt
cm aware of the danger, A fox has [0
at the slightest disinclination to run ar
iese risks: it climbs easily and leap*
5wn lightly, nnd though not equipped he
ke a cat for "swarming" a trunk, one t?r
a? seen by Mr. Tom Smith, when mas r
of the Craven hounds' sitting at a di
eight of seventeen feet In a straight- cj
temmed boech tree with only small
orlzontal branches to aid the climb,
That this art was acquired by anl- or
?als with fur greater difficulty and ef>rt
than that of swimming Is evident gj
V the limited number In the same class la
hloh have managed to bccome expert
limbers. Alt the rodents, Including th
ven the guinea pig. nre tfood swim- w
jors. The number which can climb is pt
ir- more limited, and <he line seems as
rawn not by lack of physical equip- in
but by lack of experience, or posIbly
of the desire <o do 30. There Is, for
istance, a regular scries, from the tree w,
[julrrels through the "ground squlr- th
r-ls" to the prairie doga and marmots, c:i
t very closely allied rodents, The as
quirrels are at the head of the second ba
ink or climbers, though the lack of In
swinging power" In tnelr arms puts w
;cm below the monkeys. The "ground of
luirrels" can climb trees well enough, or
liough they nre tcrreatlal. But the m
ralrle dogs and marmots, though <he 111
jrm< r at" aim t a u II <quipped for cli
limbing as n rat, have never properly w
;arnt the art, and. though not afraid m

ble grief In their experiments. Prob- \N

tut ftB they have never learnt either to
