Mamzami.i.0, Cr ha, Feb. SI, 1699. Editor Democrat. Star. The depot at Havana the morning.' (if tiur departure, was a typical Chica tfu depot hi miniature. Our tickets were purchased, we obtained our scats and were whirled nut Into I lie early dawn of n bright day, In the usual conventional style, traveling the dis tance of forty miles at the rate of fif teen tulles an hour. We passed the Chinese quarters, the negro settle ments, nnd thence to the open coun try. The scenery was entirely new to us, and very Interest inii. The cocoa nut, the remains of banana fields, with here and there an erect stock standing like a brave sentinel who defies the storms. Tho Cuban ham lets, thatch roofed, witli very few in habitants visible, and those too list less to betray the least curiosity or excitement at our passing. Then, like an oasis, there came, to our view most perfectly kept venetablo garduns, tile rows nf lettuce, radishes, younir cabbage, rtc. tiave us happy anticipa tions of delicious salads to lie enjoy ed in the near future. These gardens were kept by Chinamen, who scarcely raised their eye from their sprinklers as we passed from view. At the three stops made en route we beheld with aching hcaits the results in decayed humanity of "war, pestilence and famine." The beggars were allowed In enter the train and ask for alms of the passengers, and who could refuse? At the risk of being short in our pas sage money we just had to yield to the piteous appeal. Our lunch box had been passed through the window nf the coach unopened before the train kamc to a full stop. The emaciated forms, tho deep sunken eyes, those skeleton hands raised in piteous ap peal will never pas; from memory. Arrived at llatabano, built on the shores of the Carribean sea, we were sent -aboard at once, but the walk from the train tn the steamer was all we cared to sec of the village. Dirt, squalor and desolation were its high est recommendations. We parted company here with a brave Captain from the regular army, who was as signed to customs duties at that port, lie was accompanied by bis brave and beautiful wife. When we offered our consolation she said, "Yes, it is the most desolate spot on earth, but bow could my husband endure it alone?" Tho day was perfect, the sea smooth nnd the steamer elegant, and as she plowed Iter way through the most beautiful green sea, delicately white capped, never once losing sight uf the shore, which gave us the endless en joyment of ever varying scenery, we felt, while lounging in the shade of the stern in pleasant converse with a merry party of our own countrymen, that never again would we flod more real pleasure in travel than we were then enjoying. Meals wcro served a laCubana. Ccffee from six tn eight, breakfast at eleven, dinner at four p. m. and coffee again at eight p. in. Breakfast consisted of live platters of chopped beef, one cooked in garlic and herb, one In red peppers, another with tomatoes, another mixed with green peas, while the fifth was garn ished with peeled and baked potatoes. Fried red snapper, bread, no but ler, plenty of wine and export beer, with pine apples, bananas nnd canned peaches for dessert. Our dinners were a repetition of breakfast, supplement ed witli very good soup. Our cots or berths were cane scats covered witli linen sheets, the pillows were made of moss and wcro regular neck breakers. Our party consisted of a Major, two Lieutenants, one accompanied by his wire, children nnd maid. A million aire Vermnntcr, who Just "came down to look around a bit." A pos tal clerk, who was also the party's Inter preter, Inchargenf eighteen Immense bags of Christmas mail which ho was trying to get to Fucrto Pidnclpo, your correspondent and the children. We had but one HClTecloud to mar the lunshloaiof our trip. We learned on the train that a single first-class tick et f rum iiuUbaooto Mauutuillo was 140. We also learned that a discount of thirty per cent, was allowed to the military. It did not take us a minute to become attached to the military, in order to take advantage of the dis count. Wc had our green backs ex changed for Spanish gold and were each informed that a Spanish five dol lar gold piece represented Ave dollars and thirty cents American money, and ttMt we must demand the premium when we paid our pussage money. nut we learned that It was one thing to demand and another to obtain from these Spaniards and although the Lieutenants gesticulated and swore a few good round American oaths, the Captain and pursrr remained obdu rate and we were allowed only face value for our gold, consequently your correspondent found herself, between the alms and the loss of premium, far short of funds, liut here the inter preter got in his good work and there was no trouble making necessary ar rangements for collecting at the end of the Journey. Whenever conversa tion among us, an argument would at once spring up among us on the out rageous conductor the Captain, which was often very laughable. The next morning we were landed at Cteiifiiegos (one hundred tires) and as we were to remain there four hours we decided to visit the town. The llrst sight that met our gaze was an Immense barracks, where we saw 3f 000 Spanish soldiers, who were mass ed here awaiting transport to Spain. They were pale, emaciated and poor ly clad. There was not a cheerful race among them all. Each counte nance impressed our entire party witli the same thought disgust and home sickness. On the opposite side of the street from where the soldiers stood, sat or lay in altitudes of resting, 21 great irun cauldrons were swinging over as many (ires, filled with a meat and vegetable stew that filled the air witli an appetizing odor. We visited a large and elegant dry goods and fan cy dress goods store which was far su perior in neatness and order -to any thing wc saw in Havana. The prin cipal hotel was our next place of inter est. It is three stories high and is surrounded with galleries opening into a court II I led with tropical plants in a nourishing condition, but the dirt and disorder spoiled an other otherwise beautiful effect. Return ing we strolled through the l'la.a. Fronting on the Pla.a. which was very large and filled with shade trees and plants, was the many-columned cus tom house; an elegant theatre build ing; the one cathedral with its chime bells ringing out the hour as we pass ed a row of stores. We arrived on beard in time for breakfast and with an appetite to meet tranquilly our five platters or chopped beer. Cein feugus Is much cleaner than Havana; its streets are broader and its people display a much greater degree of en ergy and thrift than we saw in the former city. At our next stop, Trinidad, wc parted with Lieutenant Conkllngand family, who are to make that place their home as long as the Lieutenant has charge of the customs offlce. Trinidad presented a very cozy ap pearance, nestling at tho base of a mountain range, the green of the ver dure melting away Into purple as the eye was lifted toward the summit formed a beautiful background, while the waters of the glistening hay kiss ed its shores. At eleven p. in. the Major was landed at Zunas, another forlorn customs port. At eight p. m. Saturday our son was leaning over the bow of the steamer as she landed at Manzanillo, and when he sighted his father among the crowd of interested spectators he sung out, "Hello, papa!" which brought that important person age smiling and happy Into the salon. Among general congratulations we made our way to the mess room, whero several of the quartermaster clerks had "quarters" which were kindly given over to the newly arrived "mother" of the household. Mks. Ida M. Converse. -ooo- A little boy In a neighboring town was required to write an essay the other day. "Tho Newspaper," was the suhlect and here is the result: "I don't know how newspapers come in the world. I dont think Uod does, for ho halnt gol nothing to say about 'em nnd 'editors' Is not In the Bible. I think the editor Is one of the tnissln links you wrote about, and stayed In the brush till after the flood, then come out and wrototho thing up and has been here ever since. I don't think ho ever dies. I never heard of one getting licked. Our paper Is a mighty poor un'; tho editor goes thont underclothes oil winter, don't wear no socks and pa basen't paid his sub scription In more than five years." A Bclfast(Mo.) citizens reports him self as the champion absent-minded man. He got the flro in the kitchen stovo running nicely the. other mor ning, then went to the well, drew a pail of water, brought the water In and poured it Into the stovo. THE MYSTERY OF DREAMS. Times-Herald. Will the mystery of dreams ever be solved the romance of sleep that comes to all alike, rich and poor, saint and sinner, male and female? Even dogs dream, they say, nnd If dogs, why not horses and cattle and every other kind of animal? And yet, common as dreams are, and familiar to every one, the meta physicians and philosophers have made but little progress tn solving the problem. There is perhaps not so much superstition among the educat ed connected with dreams as former ly, though there are still vast numbers of people who have faith in the dream book, and look upon their dreams as prophetic and full of omens. There are still Interpreters, ton, who will tell you for a consideration the mean ing of your 'dreams, tiiough few of them areas successful as Joseph when he revealed to the butler, tho baker, and afterward to Pharaoh himself the portents of their respective dreams. And yet dreams "come true," as al most everybody has experienced. Not all dreams, but some dreams. Hum boldt relates in "Cosmos" that Col u tu bus in a dream long before his first voyage, heard a voice saying: "Uod will give you the keys ot the ocean." Calphurnia dreamed on the night be fore the assassination that great Cms ar fell mortally wounded at her feet, and she used all her arts of persuasion to keep him from going to the Senate on that day. And he would have stayed away had not Dccius Brutus, one of the conspirators sent to bring him. given a different interpretation of the dream, and then satirically added: . The Senate have concluded To give tills day a orowii to mighty Cesar. If you ahnll send them word you will not conic Their in iuds may rhiiiiiio. Ilesides it were a mock Apt to be I'cndered. fir some one to say "llrenkiip the Senate till another time, When Ciesar's wife shall meet with better dreams. Casar went to his fate and the dream camo true. I quote rrom .Shakespeare, but the story is historical. The philosophic explanation of such dreams is that the waging thoughts being intently engaged upon any sub ject, either or hope, as In the case or Columbus, or or foreboding, as in the case or Calphurnia, continue in sleep, and in that state thought takes the form of actuality. There are few pen- pie who have nnt in greater or less de gree had dreams of this kind. That the mind often works Intelli gently and logically In dreams, solv ing problems or smoothing out per plexing difficulties that have ocenrred n actual life, has been proved by tes timony that cannot bo gainsaid. Franklin gives several instances where lines of policy or or argument came to him in tits a reams inai had greatly puzzled him when awake, and Condorcet, the French mathematician, relates that lie solv ed many intricate problems in his dreams. "Kubla Kahn," that exquis ite fragment of Coleridge's genius, was composed by him in sleep, and so vividly was it impressed on his mind that he sat down tho next morning to write it out. While thus engaged he was interrupted by a visitor a person from Porlock, a neighboring village and when be resumed his pen the poem had vanished from bis mind and he was never able to recall auoth- erllne. How many lovers of poetry have awitbemizcd that "person from Porlock" would be bard to say, but tbeir name Is legion. "The Devil's Sonata" is one nf the finest and most remarkable compos! tions for the violin that Is known, Its composer, Tartlni, the renowned Ital Ian violinist, says that he dreamed that the devil challenged him to trial of skill on the violin, and that the Prince of Pandemonium so far ex celled him tn brilliancy that he gave up in despair. On awakening and finding that it was all a dream he wrote out the notes that were sun throbbing in his mind. Dr. Johnson tells that he had once a dream in which he engaged in a contest of wit with some other per son, and he was very much mortified by Imagining that his opponent had tlm htter of blm. something that the doctor seldom permitted in his wak ing hours. e In explanation of his jjrenm, how ever, lie saia: -tine may marn uere the effect of sleep tn weakening the power of reflection, for, had not my judgment failed me, I. should have seen that tne wit or tnis supposed antagonist, by whose superiority I felt myself depressed, was as much furnished by tuu as that which 1 had thought I hud been uttering In my own character." Not only are the rcflec',ivo powers weakened In dreams, as Dr. Johnson thus points out, but tho moral facul ty also, nnd It isquite certain that ex cellent people, who woujrj Dot wrong a neighbor or fellow-being In any way In their waking hours, view with the utmost serenity of conscience the commission or almost any crime. Strange beyond all comprehension are the phenomena of sleep. Willie prone upon our beds we enter aland of enchantment, where we see, and converse, and travel, and engage in wonderful enterprises. We arc limit ed by neither time nor space. The imposfible becom?s the actual, the tins born live, the dead come back, and miracles are the commonplaces uf ex istence. One-third of our lives is passed In this realm which Shelly lias called tlx brother or death: llnw wonderful is death, Oesth and his brother Sleep! One pale as yonder waning moon, With lips of lurid blue; . The other rosy as the mom, When throned nn ocean's wave, It bluaheao'er the world: Yet both so passing wonderful Two things in human experience, apart from revelation, tend to prove the immortality of the soul. One is that the mind never grows old. Tho man of seventy is ns youthful in his mental emotions and thought as a boy of fifteen. The other Is dream ing, wl-crein the mind apparently acts Independently of the body. Can Immortality beany more Im probable or impossible than our dream lire? The Florida Velvet Bean. The following which we clip from the Gulfport Southward, will be o! interest to our truck farmers in this section: Lono Heach, Miss., feu. 23. 1S09. Editor Southward. Dear Sir. By your kindness I wish to call the attention of our farmer friends, especialy of this anil adjoin ing counties, to a very valuable feed and fertilizer 'plant, viz: The velvet bean. Hy growing this bean we make our feed and fertilizer on our land at the same time, and it makes the most wonderful growth of anything I have ever seen, vines growing thirty to sixty feet long and covering the ground two to four feet deep, making two to four tons of hay per aero. All stock like the hay as well as they do pea-vine hay, and the beans when ground make as rich feed as cotton seed meal, and stock are very fond of it. This meal is also as good for fer tilizer as cotton seed meal. Mr. Hastings of Florida, a man well acquainted with the bean says that if is wort h as much per acre to the land as two tons of commercial fertilizer. It Is grown now all over the country ind everybody seems well pleased with it. ir our people knew the val ue or this bean we would have from 500 to 1000 acres growing in this coun ty this year. The people of Florida m growing fields of forty to eighty acres of it, and wc should do the same We can plant it from tho l.ith of March or 1st of April to June 20th. Last year I planted an acre after oats and they made a wonderful growth. 1 planted for fertilizer and am well pleased, will plant twenty acres this year, will plant four or live acres of new land for a rail pasture, ns the cows and horses like it better than any thing you can give them, and it makes more milk than anything I nave tried. This bean will grow on new land without work or fertilizer, and the next year this Hindis ready for any other crop. To make beans, plant in rows five to eight feet wide, and one or two beans three feet apart, on fairly good land, on very poor land plant closer. Fur fertilizer tho land, lant In rows nve ieet wide and two cans three feet apart, snd plow two or three times until they get a start. 1 consider tnem better for us than peas for two reasons. First because they make two to four times the vines on same quanity of land. Second, be cause a bushel of beans will plant four to six times as mucn grounn. l insist on every farmer planting some this year if no more than a peck, ana see ana Know tor nimseir now valuable, It is. You cannot afford to miss it. . W. J. Quarles. (Mr. Quarlcs has secured a limited Suantlty of velvet beans from Florl a, which he will divide with others. Tho seed costs $2.00 per bushel, 50 cents per peck. Editor Southward. The Texas Legislature is consider ing a bill which Is or Interest to liar and those who lightly accuse others of that sin. The bill Is to makotlie calling of a man a liar, when It is pro ven, full defence In assault nnd bat tery. In Kentucky it is a misdemea nor, punishable by a 120 fine to call a man a liar, and a police Justice of Louisville has declared from his bench that a lie means a blow. A man may, In a christian spirit, when he Is struck upon one '.meek turn the other also, but when the epithet liar . is applied to him atl of his grace for the time takes flight and he will come down from the most exalted dlnnltv to punish his assailant with a black eye or a battered nose. As no pun ishment is ton great for the liar, so It should be with who recklessly applies tho epithet. A femalo Sam Jones Is stirring tho people out In Missouri. In a sermon recently she said: "There Is a man in this houso who is untrue to his ire.! I am going tn throw this hymn bonk at him." She raised tho book as ir she was going to throw It, and every man In tho house ducked his head .but one to avoid the book. Then she blistered the dodgers and lauded the nne true tman. It was afterwards learned that lie was deaf and dumb. f mi ill! i i i t. 1 I .1 II' 'J' i IT TOO AH3 IN NESP OF IT!
