The peculiar narrow streets and the

the 6hope and warehouses live in the

is conducted. The shops open about 9

San Carlos, which is the Union League

Morro Castle and the gilded youths of
the city make their Idling headquarters.
It Is a pleasant place in which to loaf,
drink cooling beverages, smoke and
gossip. The club-house Is only one story
high, like most of the buildings in the
city, and in front Is a little garden with
a fountain ana flowers. Opposite the
Club de San Carlo is tho Cafe Venus,

but there Is a native rum, called bar
