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.

brushes. The toy soldiers are made of
a metal composition that will endure
all kinds of abuse without much dam
age. At first these toys were painted

Mr. Landi to design moulds whereby
they could be painted with air brushes
