TRANSFORMATION IN CUBA.
One of tbe ablest papers in Havana
makes a striking comment on the
quiet but comprehensive,
going on throughout tbe
Natives and old residents gradually
realize that they are living in a new
world. Spanish colonial habits of
thought are vanishing with Spanish
conditions. Old restrictions and tra
dilions are swept away and the
Cubans find themselves, treated like
reasonable beings instead of mere
vassals hampered on 'all sides by
arbitrary rules ai.d kepf in subjection
by a big army and ever-ready dun
geons. 1 he Havana editor refers to
former times when efforts at reform
produced a great rhetorical noise
through the newspapers and orators,
but eventually came to nothing. On
the other band, saj-s this thoughtful
observer, "in these days of fruitful,
though silent woik," radical reforms
are accomplished quickly and surely.
"An order of six lines, with a very
short preamble," he continues, "will
represent some bold and beneficent
measure. I might say that for us a
thin sheet of paper separates the me
diaeval world from the nineteenth
century, and oftentimes the writing
Ja not indispensable to enable us to
pass from darkness to light."
That is well and graphically stated.
The era of doing nothing, with a
great nooa or suited and . insincere
language, has passed away in
Cuba. In most of the newspapers
of the island there is still
a needless amount of high-flown
diction and emotionalism, but prac
tical requirements and influences will
correct this in time. Many of the
features of Cuba's new birth can be
traced in an article by Gen. Leonard
Wood, commanding in the Province
of Santiago, in the May North Amer
ican Review. ' The people are taking
a deep interest in school affairs. They
arevanxious to learn, and the pupils
in the little schools are enthusiastic.
The Cubans appreciate the improved
postal facilities organized by the
United States. Gen. Wood says the
people -are anxious to woik and he
has no fear of general brigandage.
He advises "a firm but liberal and
just government of the people7 for
1he people, under American military
su pei vision for the time being;" with
a minimum of Americans in civil
office and not too much centraliza
tion of affairs in Havana.
Santiago province has been self
sustained since last October, not only
paying tbe cost of official service,
courts and schools, but furnishing
funds for roads and other public
works, and a surplus of $250,000 for
sanitary Improvements in the city
and harbor. Genernl Wood believes
that the present revenues of tbe
island are sufficient for its needs, in
cluding its charities. He sees no
necessity for a large army in Cuba.
A mounted force or zoo natives
policemen is sufficient in the province
he commands. Of course, the marks
of devastation are found on every
hand and immense labor will be re
quired to rebuild inland towns and
villages and restore roads, ""bridges
and facilities for transportation and
communication. No probable date
is named by Gen. Wood for the
formation of the future government
which he believes Hie people capable
of conducting after pacification is
attained. The crucial point of the
question will come when the - Cubans
undertake to shape their government
and adjust provincial differences and
Oloplons Mews. .
Comes from Dr. D. B. Cargile, of
Washita, I. T. He writes:
"Four bottles of Electric Bitters has
cured Mrs. Brewer of scrofula, which bad
caused her great: Buffering; for years.
Terrible sores would break out on her
head and ace, and the best doctors
could give no help; but her cure is com
plete and her health is excellent." This
shows what thousands liavj proved,
that Electric Bitters is the beet blood
purifier known. It's the supreme
