to Iks slaves.
Coffee plantations, though to beau
tiful, have not Increased lit numbers
ot late years; In fact, many of them
hnve chunked into sugar estates, which
ore more profitable, and tender the
owner Bociully more Important. The
owner usually resides in Havana,
where his fumily may enjoy the pleas
ures of cultivated society and have the
luxuries of a city; he therefore em
ploys a sort of middleman, called n
major-domo, to manage his estate.
The owner wants all the money he car.
get to maintain his establishment in
Havana, and the major-domo seeks to
increase his percentage, and thus the
poor slaves are ground to the dust,
and at times the cruelties practiced
are barbarous. The mnyorals are
usually Canary islanders, a hot-tempered
and cruel race, and, being with
out the restraint of the presence ot
the owner, are vindictively oppressive,
and in their inhuman punishments
often take life. The horrors which
have been perpetrated In Cuba by the
lash would disgrace barbarians.
One striking fact attesting the hard
ships of slave life on a sugar estate is
that children are very rarely seer,
there. Slave men in their vigor are
more profitable, and hence in a large
force of several hundred men only a
few women are allowed. The labors
and hardships which these 'women en
dure tend to prevent increase, and
the few children born usuclly die in
infancy from neglect. There is no
care taken to prevent this result, as
they say it is cheaper to supply the
losses on the plantations by new im
portations than by the rearing of
children. The climate, fortunately,
is so mild that the slaves med but
little clothing, and a wide palm hat
and a cloth about the lions are their
costume in their fields, the sun seem
ing to. have but little effect upon their
Every week there is a ration day,
on which they are drawn up in long
lines, and a few pounds of black-looking
beef brought from Buenos Ayres
are thrown at the feet of each, which
at eight each cooks to suit himself.
In edei-.ion, a coarse meal or small
hominy (bran and all) is boiled, and put
in a trough, from which they eat it
every morning with a spoon, a paddle,
or their hands, as they choose.
The Africans brought into Cuba are
generally from the coast of Mozam
bique, and are called Locoomees and
Caravalees. They are large, stout
men, of dogged will, and at times are
All these creatures believe implicit
ly in the transmigration of souls, and
that if they commit suicide they go im
mediately back to Africa. To check
this evil, when a suicide occurs, the
mayoral makes each of the slaves
bring a bundle of wood and build a
funeral pyre, on whioh the body is
burned. The ashes are then scattered
in the air by the survivors, in whose
opinion the dead negro's soul is thus
prevented from returning to Africa.
In scattering the ashes they sigh au
dibly, "Aha! Aha!" as if expressing
grief that the soul of their companion
can no longer go home.
The appearance of the sugar estates
is the very opposite of the beautiful
coffee plantations. Wide fields of ir,o
jiotonons green stretch themselves
to the horizon , on every side, while
here and there the royal palm lifts its
tufted head above the verdant level.
The may oral's houEe, the sugar works,
and the dingy barracoons for the
(laves are the only objects to break
the monotony of the desolate scene.
When first planted, the cane is laid
'lengthwise in trenches, or furrows,
about five ot six feet apart, and then
covered. From esich eye (there is an
eye to each soft joint) a shoot s-prinps
up, and sends out others, forming n
bunch of canes; and thus the fields
are covered witb the most luxuriant
Every year the crop is cut at the
ground, and the next season another
crop springs up from the roots, which
are called vatona. These vatons will
yield crops in this way for Bevernl
years, the length of time depending
on the mildness of the climate. In
Louisiana only three or four crops
are gathered from one planting,.whi!c
in the tropics 18 or 20 are thus ob
tained. The grinding of the cane bp
gins about the last of October, end
continues until the beginning of the
rainy season, a period cf nearly ?ix
months. This Is the time of greatest
labor on the estate; and, without in
termission of Sundays or holidays,
with but. few exceptions, the slaves
work incessantly, and men and teams
are worn out before work is over. The
slaves are given a few trifling presents .
and are allowed some extra privileges
to encourage them in undergoing t It i
Increased labor. Jonathan S. Jenkins,

A Pitcher Is Not a Bottle.
Native wine is so cheap in Ban Fran
cisco that many restaurant-keepers
lerve it with meals in lieu of tea or
soffee, if their patron! prefer It. The
clause in the war tax requiring a
itamp to be affixed to each bottle of
wine disturbed them seriously for
awhile, until the plan was hit upon of
serving it In pitchers instead. As the
internal revenue department has ruled
that a pitcher is not a bottle, these
caterers get off free of the tax, '

SUPERSTITION OF SAILORS
Row It Wm ManlfMted by British
-Tmra at the Albion's
It has been said that, next to the
savages and the infidels, sailors are the
most superstitious-portion of humani
ty. A few weeks ago, writes a Loudon
correspondent of the Baltimore Sun,
when the new British warship Albion
was launched, the bottle of rosewater
not of champagne, remember with
which the duchess of York was to
christen England's proudest vessel,
failed at the critical moment to break
against the ship's bows. Immediately
there was no end of ominous talk
among the sailors about this abortive
attempt at baptism. Mr. Ivey, the
mayor of the place of launching, in
commenting upon thiB fact, observed:
"I have been a sailor myself, and I
know what sailors are. There are
plenty of them who wouldrathor have
three months of bard labor than serve
on board that ship. If anything hap
pens to her, they are sure to say at
once that it was because she was not
christened, and, In a way, it is quite
true that accidents do follow evil
omens. Suppose there is a storm. It
is a critical time, and there is a super
stitious man at the wheel. He needs
all his nerve and coolness, but just at
the critical time he remembers the bad
omen. 'Ah,' says he to himself, 'that
bottle didn't break. Something is
sure to happen.' He loses his balance
and something does happen. It is in
that sort of way that these 'unlucky'
incidents do really bring ill-luck."

pretty girls lose all effect of their good
looks by a hobbling walk. A brides-
maid should glide, not limp or hop. .
The beauty of a faultless frock and the
stateliness of a picture hat vanish when
the wearer is awkward and obviously
ill at ease. The bride herself is helped
by her long train, her drooping head
dnd the leaning on her father's arm be

TWO NARROW BUILDINGS.

. Flv. Feet Wide. ,
Philadelphia may not be able to
boast the tallest buildings In the
world, but she surely has ber share ol
the narrowest, says a writer in the
Record. On the corner of Chestnut
and American streets is located a
building -that at first, glance would
seem to reflect seriously on the sanity
of the projector, but the multitude ol
prosperous tenants form n monument
to the financial shrewdness of the
owners, from outside to outside ol
the walls the structure is exactly five
feet wide. It Is 150 feet deep, and
there are four stories. Every room In
it is occupied by a shop of some kind
or by families, who seem to be con
tented with their lot. The walls are
over one foot thick, and this leaves
less than one yard for the Inside
space. Therefore, It is a physical im
possibility for the tenants to occupy
a full-sized bed. If they desire to sleep
it must be on a cot, and the sleeper ex
tends bis body from north to south.
Among the numerous Industries In
thiB contracted building are a tailor
shop, a restaurant, a printing office, a
sign painting establishment and n
cigar store. Another narrow build
ing is at Market and Let I tin streets. It
is fire stories high and six feet three
inches wide. In Its original state this
building was six feet wider than at
present, but a city Improvement out it
down to the present size.

There is a painful coolness between
two women who live In a big apartment
house uplowu. nnd an Ameriean dag is

When marine life began to command
notice, the question of the depth to
which life could extend divided scien
tific thought into warring camps.
About 1840 it was generally believed
that the bathymctricnl limit was about
300 fathoms, and some strange ideas
were current as to the physical condi

produce. It was thought that skele
tons of drowned men or even heavy
cannon and the "wedges of gold" that
popular imagination places in the sen,
floated at certain levels, beneath which
is water so compressed as to be impene
trable. In fact, says the North Ameri
can Ilevicw, water Is almost incompres
sible, and the weight of a cubic inch of
it at the depth of a mile is very Utile
mora than at the surface, but it was
assumed that no living being could
survive a pressure which at 1,000 fath

we sometimes waken on a morning

These big rabbits are as swift and

are fat then, but these fleas are so
thick on them, and are so ravenous that
they actually reduce the long-eared
