Word received in this city by friends of Joseph Merlo and Antonio Faola. two Barre business men, who are at present touring through Cuba, carries the information that the young men are enjoying to the limit the sights, phases and customs of a new country. In speaking alsmt piiriy of the novel ties with whjch they have come in con tact, they were particularly struck with the Cuban prisons. These pris ons are for the most part built on is land, sufficiently distant from the main land that any prisoner trying to escape must be an efficient swimmer, and clever enough to dodge a large force of guards who patrol the oppo site shore as a sort of secondary de fense. The two met mention the pres ence of a great part of the population in military uniforms. It would appear to them that every Cuban's ambition was to become a soldier. In making the trip to the southern island, Messrs. Merlo and Fasola journeyed from New York to Havana aboard one of the I'nited Fruit company's steamers. From cities and towns in various parts of the I'nited States and from ona town in South America. Peter F.
