".(? soldiers sent from Spain since

sickness, control only the seaports
and the strongly I'ortilicd towns of thc
interior. The country from east to
west is in thc hands of the insurgents.
Thc eastern part <?f thc island, includ
ing Santiago ile (Juba and I'ucrto
Principe, is held by thc (J aha ti gener
als, Calixto (jarcia. Jesus Kabi aud
Lope Kccio Loynaz. There thc Cu- ?
bans arc stronger than in any other ?
section of the island. They have in j
these two provinces 20,000 men at j
least, armed and with plenty of am- j
munition. There they hold the Span- j
ish columns in constant check, and j

The central part of the island, that j
is to say, the province of Santa Clara, j
is controlled by lien. .Maximo (ionic/.
Thc Cuban commander-in-chief has at
least 10,000 men there under his or
ders, with Carrillo, Montcagudo, Al
varez and several others as subordi
nate commanders.
There are about 5,000 insurgents in
thc provinces of Mantanzas and Ha
bana. This is where the Cubans art;
weakest, the Spanish fortified towns
being nearer to one another and the
Spanish army more numerous. But
nevertheless they have strength
enough to keep up a very lively guer
rilla warfare, raiding almost daily the
most important tOWUi and making
damning attacks on thc outskirts ot
Habana city itself. The recent death
of their plucky leader, Ccu. Arangu
rcn, has not abated their ardor, (?en.
Betancourt, Gen. Alejandro Rodri
guez, (jen. Rafael de Cardenas, and
Coli. Davaios, Collazo and others are
cutting out a great deal of work every
day for thc Spanish and guerrilla* in
thc Habana and Mantan zas provinsse. ?
Pinar del Hio province, the western
extremity, is a Cuban stronghold.
Thc Cubans there arc as .trong as in
Santa Clara and hold thc long and im
pregnable chain of mountains extend
ing through the province. They do
not allow the Spaniards to get out of
their towns, lieus, helgado and Du- '.
casi arc the principal Cuban leaders in
that province.
The result of this situation is that
the Spaniards cannot exist on the pro
ducts of the country in any part of
the island. The country near thc
towns was laid waste by ??cn. Weyler
and the gaunt spectre of famine stalks
all over Cuba. The extermination of
thc peaceable inhabitants by hunger
is going on rapidly. All these tacts
are too notorious to be denied ut this
time. The reconeentradoi, or HOU
cembstaats. starve ?ud die hv thau*
and? ealy because the country na
which they exclusively depend, is not
producing food. The insurgents keep
zones af cultivation of their own,
where they raiie vecetables aad stare
their cattle, but they do aat divide
their previsions with th? usn-com
bataats, ?or da they allow vegetables
to be caised er cattle kept by any oae
but themselves, because it is their
peliay to prevent the Spaaisb army
from obtaining any kiad af resources
in the country.
The Spanish army, therefere, ex
clusively depeuds upaa the provisions
imported from abroad. Hiee, beaat
sad fleur they reeeiva from Spain.
Meat for the inhabitant! of the sea*
ports they obtaia from Mexico and
Florida. The 150,000 Spaniards un- j
?1er arms exclusively depena upon I
steamers loaded with provisions from
abroad that enter the Cuban ports.
Not a potato comes into the city of
Habana from the country. The milk
ii almost all condensed and itnpoitcd i
from the Knited States. Kggs and'
vegetable- are from I'lerida. And j
what is still more important, on ac- |
count of the great financial distress in 1
Habana, the importing merchants do j
not keep a lar-je stock of provisions, i
?f the imports are stopped the entire
supply of food in Habana will be ex- j
haunted by the 200,0011 inhabitants of j
the city in less than a week.

Nar?i>o Lopez with a iiaudful <>j
Americans mi board a small merchant
vessel. Since then no fort capable of

built there. The Ano ricans can lir?Icl

with thc insurgents in the country.
;lna short time thc whole Cuban ai my

towns. If without such munitions

I ciilty they incur in seining scanty
supplies from thc feeble filibustering
expeditions they not only hold their
own against Spain, but actually im
prison thc Spaniards in their forts and
cities it is obvious that possessing war
appliances which will place them in
this respect on thc same footing as
thc Spaniards themselves, they will
exterminate all thc Spanish columns
daring to leave their fortified places
and eventually in\cst them in thc
principal cities.
With st single dynamite e.un of
small calibre, and with thc three or
four thousand rifles received by him
from several small expeditions sent
from thc I knited States, (?eu. (Jarcia
has driven thc Spaniards from the
greater part of thc province of Santi
ago dc Cuba.
It is a fact, which even Spanish di
plomacy will not dare to deny, that if,
instead of hampering the Cubans in
the United States in their work of
sending expeditious lo their brethren;
if instead of prosecuting them in so
drastic a manner as was done during
the administration of Mr.- Cleveland;
if. instead of keeping, at an enormous
cost to this country, thc American
navy and police watching the Cuban
Junta and its agents, the Cubans
herc had been unmolested, thc possi
bility which now confronts us of an
international war would not exist.
The Cubans, with no uiore than 40,
000 men in tho field, and with all the
odds against them, have proved in
three years that they are more than a
match for Spain. With a regular and
ample supply of war materials, they
ca? free their island without any
other help from abroad.
In a war between Spain and the
United States it is beyond doubt that
the whole Cuban army would be on
the American side. There is no doubt
cither, that we would give them all
thc- rifles, cartridges and cannon they
need. They would then take care of
the land operations. Wc would only
need to blockade the Spaniard.- by the
sea and let them starve.
Of course, the Spaniards would
make au attempt with their navy to
break that blockade. The contest
would then only be a naval one. Hut
with their capitol only eighty miles
from Key West, and sixty miles from
Dry Tortugas, which would probably
be thc center of our naval operations,
is it reasonable to suppose that the
Spaniards ceuld relieve Habana either |
by stealth or hy force? In a few ?lay?

its Cabaaa fortress and its Morro

Hut what is the "perfect age?'*
This i? au old question, you know,
but, however often asked, it always
brings new answers.
In the ''lighter novels" the heroines
arc all quite young girls. In those of
the ' deeper" class it is the mature
woman that thc novelist chooses to
depict emotions. We have confidence
in the mature woman. When she
laughs we laugh with her. because we
feel that she has really found some
thing worth laughing about. When
she weeps we weep with her. because
we know that tears do not come as
readily to the mature woman's eyes as
they do to younger ones less used to
grief. And when she loves-when
she loves, we say "that is a woman's
love. It is the love of a limetimc."
"A woman's love." There is a di
vinity about that, isn't there?

whose lives have proved the truth
of the remark that a charming woman

''What is the perfect age?"
There may be no certain agc that is
the perfect enc. If there really was,
it would but add to our discontent.
As it is, what a cheering thing to have
proof-and history is full of it-that
age has but little to do after all with
our power to please. Youth may bc
beautiful and glorious to look upon.

Old women have gone out of fash

An English physician, Sir James
Sawyer, one of the best known of his
profession, propounds the "nineteen
commandments," which I append, for
health and beauty. Keep these, he
says, and you may live fora century:
1. Eight hours' sleep.
2. Sleep on your right side.
3. Keep your bedroom window open.
4. Have a mat at your bedroom
f). Do not have your bedstead
against the wall.
6. No cold tub in the morning, but
a bath the temperature of the body.
7. Exercise before breakfast.
H. Eat little meat and sec that it is
weii cooked.
it. Drink no milk.
10. Eat plenty of fat, to feed the
cells which destroy the diseased
11. Avoid intoxicants, which de
stroy those cells.
12. Daily exercise in ' the open air.
13. Allow no pet animals in your
living rooms. They are apt to carry
about disease germs.

Au Unexampled Death Koli.
Never in the whole history of the
i 'n i ted States has there been a naval
catastrophe so destructive to human
life as the wreck of the Maine.
Not only is this true of the years of
peace, but it is true of the years of
v/ar. More brave men went down
with thc burned and shattered hulk of
our nable armor-clad on Tuesday night
than have perished in any single sea
fight of the Republic. Thc bloodiest
day in our naval history was that fatal
8th of March, 1802, when the iron
mailed Merrimac came into Hampton
Hoads and crushed successively the
fiuVat.fi Congress and the sleep of -war
Cumberland. Though these two ships
were defended with extraordinary
heroism, hurling their last defiant
broadsides at their impregnable foe
just as the flames and the waves over
whelmed them, the deaths on neither
vessel were equal to those on the
Maine. The Congress lost 130 out of
J & completest of 434; the Cumberland
1 ?20 out of 370.
Strange as it may seem, the dead of
thc Maine outnumber several times
over all the men'who fell in the Union
fleet at Farragut's first great victory
of New Orleans. Thirty-seven officers
and sailors gave up their lives in that
fierce night battle on the Mississippi.
One hundred and forty-five perished
in the fiercer encounter of Mobile Bay,
but ninety-three of these sank at their
posts with the torpedoed monitor
Tecumseh. Only 20 fell in Admiral
Porter's first attack on Fort Fisher,
on December 24 and 25, 1804, and 82
was thc total loss of the fleet in the
second and victorious combat.
Not only is the death roll of the
Maine greater than that of any sea
battle which the United States has
fought, but it is greater than that of
any hattie save one of the British
navy in the past hundred years. The
British loss was somewhat larger at
Trafalgar, reckoning thc casualties of
the entire fleet, but no single ship
aufferad mora than a fraetien of the
lass which the Maina sustained by
thia terrible explosion. Nelson's flag
ship, the Victory, waa under fire for
five hours, and waa reduced to a mero
wreek, but har killed were enly 5? out
of a full crew of 600. At tba battle
of tba Nile the Bellerophon^ whieh
was moat out up of all of Nelson'a
ships, lost 49 mea out of 584, aad
the whole fleet lost 213. Jarvis won
hia Karldom at Cape St. Vincent with
a loss of 73 men, and 213 fell on tba
British aide at Camperdown.
From these renord* of the past the
American people can realise more viv
idly the true measure of the sacrifice
whieh their nary has offered up in the
harbor of Havana.- ih*tnn Aifrer?
