Cuba oijht to be green,
but as a matter of fact
it is not It is a dull,
rusty brovra, and gives
the appro.vching voy
ager an impression of
barren ster.'lity more
than anything else.
How it came by itsrep-
Satation for luxuriant
vegetation I do not
know, for the suns of all ages must have
subjected the land to the same scorching
(process as that which withers and
blights it to-day. One has in one's
'mind a lurid sKy, monstrous m.uses
of tropical foliage, sparkling groves of
tgolden oranges, hanging moss, rare birds of
brilliant plumage, with here and there a
"monkey unattended by an organ grinder,
or perhaps an alligator or baby chimpanzee.
And instead one sees a low rocky hill rising
up out of the water, crowned by bald knolls
and naked peaks of a brownish green hue,
and a clump of palms or lonely Ceiba flap
ping its scant leaves acainst the gray sky.
JSb birds (except perhaps a. stray cow), or
alligators, or snakes, 6r monkeys, or any
thing original and thrilling. When one
gets ont in the country, however, the palms
multiply and appear in great numbers, and
leagues of sugar cane, green as emerald,
spread as far as the ere can see. ,
THE STATELY TAMI.
The palm is the most beantiful tree in
Cuba. One cannot look on the tall, statelv
plant, crowned with its clamp of plumed
leaves, without vividly recalling Syria and
the Kile. Sometimes it stands in groups,
sometimes in Ions shady avenues. The
trunks are of a pearlish hue, which shines
like silver in the light of the sun, and the
large fan-shape leaves present a great varie
ty of elegant forms. Frequently they are
flat and broad, and again split into slender
filiaments. The poor of Cuba use the wood
to build their cabins, and the leaves to
thatch them. Some of the fibers are made
into mats and baskets. The palm is also
associated in one's mind with the ancient
custom of carrying the branches on occa
sions of festivity. Thus Christ's entrance
into Jerusalem is still commemorated, in all
P.oman Catholic churches, on the Sunday
In making a tour of the country of Cuba
one invariably spends a day on a sugar
plantation. Cuba is the home of sugar.
About 39 miles from Havana there is a very
large estate where this product is manufact
ured. Jl CUBAJf TKAIN.
The cars which carry the passenger over
the intervening line of railroad, are all of
American make (neither Spain nor Cnba
produces mechanics), and are exceedingly
well adapted to the climate, being light,
airy structures, with comfortable, wide cane
seats. There are never more than half a
dozen passengers aboard at a time (the
Havanos are a stay-at-home people), so the
conductor, who is brakeman, and for all I
know engineer, too, manages to fulfill his
several duties creditably.

gallantry in a railway. Of course it does
not reach its destination quite as soon in
conseguence, but it gets there within a few
hours of the time due, and this is perfectly
satisfactory to the average Cuban, who goes
slowly himself and neither expects nor
looks for speed in others.
AN ELEGANT TUENOUT.
The sugar plantation of the Island is al
together a colossal affair. The bare ma
chinery often costs from 5250,000 to 5500,000.
Xjeavmg me train at a station caiica -inarm-naow,
one is driven several miles over a
road composed of a succession of ruts, qual
ified to overturn any but tha vehicle we
have selected, inasmuch as there is nothing
about it to overturn or come apart. It is a
sort of box fastened to a ponderous pair of
wheels drawn by two sturdy little horses
about the size of a full-grown pony. These
horses which one sees on the Island, are the
smallest, thinnest, weakest looking animals
imaginable. Tbey are a rack of bones and
wheeze and cough like human consumptives,
but they never play out or die. They out
live their masters, defy fate and fortune and
go on like the brook lorever. "When they
grow to be veritable fossils they are presented
to the "Plaza de Toros," where they are
used to fight bulls. We had heard that road
making was a lost art among the Spaniards,
and we believed it after a drive along that
which led from Marianaow. "We could have
borne it better had our prancing steeds been
less spirited, but as it was we speculated
mentally the whole way on the probable
cost of Pond's extract or arnica, and won
dered if our funds would meet the necessary
"We flew along at such a lively rate that
we had only a passing glimpse of the scenes
through which we were being rapidly
whirled. "We occasionally caught sight of
a solitary palm, with a group ot little
naked negroes in the background; a ragged
cactus hedge, a lean, hungry pig, a tumble
down outhouse, and squalid, poorly clad
women, dirty, lazy, idle, lounging on the
broken doorsteps, or sleeping on the bare
ground. Thrift, energy, plenty are Tin
known. Everyone is poor, and revels in
it. No one longs to be better off than he is.
AH are satisfied, self-sufficient, and shift
less. The lodge of the sugar plantation is usu
ally kept by an aged retainer, who opens the
gates, and as we pass through invites us to
enter his humble dwelling. It is a wretch
edly poor habitation, consisting of four
posts with a roof of palm husks, standing
flat on the red earth. It has neither floor,
partition nor window. Like all the pro
vincials of Cuba, the lodgekeeper is a low
spoken, gentle voiced man, who probably
never wore a pair of shoes, but whose in
born politeness prompts him to life his hat
and Btand bare headed before us. He is
ragged and dirty, but picturesque, and in
this case very handsome. "When we pass
into his poor abode he is delighted. He
offers us the only chairs it contains, sum
mons his wife and children and graciously
presents us. ,His kind hospitality, quiet,
well-bred ease and unaffected manner would
do credit to a nobleman ot rank and posi
tion. There is no politeness as charming as
that which is inborn.
THE STJGAE PLANTATION.
One's first view of the sugar plantation
once bevond the lodge consists of nothing
but fields ot thousands of acres of waving
sugar cane. Then tall white chimneys loom
up in the distance, and finally the "batey"
or square, in which stand the buildings,
machinery and residences. The first person
we meet is a good-lookingyoung fellow with
a profusion of reddish brown hair and very
bright blue eyes, who greets us to our sur
prise in English, and whom we learn is the
head engineer, and, as usual, an American.
"We are delighted. So is he. At least he
says he is, which amounts to the same thing;
for he escorts us over the works, explain
ing everything as he goes.
First we are taken into a huge foundry,
which resembles a kind of rolling mill.
There is a steaming, snorting engine, emit
ting an occasional fierce glow of fire, a crowd
of bare legged negroes and Chinamen mov
ing to and fro, some shoveling the sngar
cane into the ponderous rollers, which
crush out the jnice, and send it foaming
and bubbling down into the great iron ket
tles, others stirring up the thick dark syrup
with long poles, and weird, fantastic move
ments, or gathering "bagazo," or crushed
cane, to be dried in the sun and used as

Then we are escorted over the negro quar

were before the blacks were liberated. Thev

locked at a certain hour. The laborers are
often clothed and housed as in the days ot
bondage. I am of the opinion that a great
many ot them do not know that they are
free, or what being free actually is. They
have been born on the plantation, as their
fathers and grandfathers before them, and
they know literally nothing beyond it.
They are paid a small sum for their work,
and are not driven into" their quarters by
means of the overseers' whip as formerly;
otherwise their condition remains un
The lonely monotony of the vast stretch
of country led us to commiserate with our
fellow countryman, doomed to spend the
better part ot his lite in the isolated wilds,
among a semi-barbaric people, who did not
speak his tongue. But he told us he had
become accustomed to the unchanging
scene, and war attached to it Besides it
was often broken in upon by bands of des
peradoes, who made it lively enough for all

hounds, who set us shivering when regarded
chained to the kennels, and reminded us
so forcibly of "Uncle Tom's Cabin" as to

station at a rate of speed which gave us two
hours to sun ourselves on a backless
wooden bench waiting for the train.
tWBITTEN FOB THE DISPATCH.
"Casa Salvini" is all you have to say in
any part of Florence, and the cabman will
smile with pleasure and put you down at
the great actor's door. When he walks the
streets with his princely tread, one would
think him a king, a beloved king passing
through his subjects; they smile and bow
and look upon him with so much respect
and veneration "e nostro Salviui."
But Salvini says that no country really
recognizes art in these days, not even Italy
as much as is supposed. Himself, Boss!
and Kistori are the only Italian actors who
have acquired fortunes, but these have been
mostly gained in foreign tours.
He has a splendid house in Florence and
a villa on the hills. A glass door opens
into a Wide marble ball with some parlors
at the end the servant who received your
card comes back, he opens the great glass
doors, and through a vista of rooms yon see
Salvini waiting for you in his study.
The house is very plain, and the master
has that simple dignity which makes his
creations oitne stage at.once so natural and
so majestic. A great simplicity and mod
esty characterize every room, a" few J photo
graphs of actresses hang about, but nowhere
can be seen any bust or likeness of Salvini.
He is extremely averse to be taken, even in
photography, and absolutely refuses to sit
for an artist The Emperor of Austria has
threatened to send a company of gens
d'armes to seize him and hold him while
his court painter transfers him to canvas.
A FAMILY OP AETIST3.
Some years ago Salvini married an En
glish lady and has alarge family of children.
All of his children are artistic in some way.
His daughter often acts in private and has
a delightful style, especially in comedy.
Alexander, of course, is well known here
and steadily advancing in reputation:
Another son is making a great furor in
Italy, playing his father's roles and de
clared by the Italians to be his worthy suc
cessor. His son Mario, a dark, handsome
youth, is a sculptor of great promise; his
work is of the extremely realistic school,
but shows a dramatic breaking through of
tradition, and be has inherited from his
father a feeling for powerful expression in
gesture. His best work is called "The
Strike. A laborer in bronze, clumsy and
muscular, has torn cp a paving stone and
suspends it in the air before hurling it. His
work has now the exaggeration of burnin?
youth, but will tone down into something
very strong and fine with greater experience.
The Casa Salvini contains a very happy
and united family, and Salvini governs it
with great dignity.
There are few women in the world who
would not like to have a lover like Salvini
he is not like the ordinary actor, all af
fected, sensational and self-conscious in his
strongest passion. Salvini has the grand
dignity and power, the majestic, colossal,
whirlwind-like sweep of emotion, and yet
such a grasp on himself, such control, that
it makes bim seem, a man a god, and one
must simply fall ut his feet and say, ''1 am
thine, do with me as thofl wilt." I stood in
the wings one night when he played the
"Gladiator," and it seemed to me as he
passed me as if he carried with him a mag
netism which must sweep all lesser objects
to him. I felt as if the breath ot flame were
in my hair, as if I were being sucked into a J
whirlpool, when he stopped and spoke to
me with a manner so simple and a courtesy
so profound that I felt a queen. Who could
withstand such heights and depths?
SAVING A SCENE.
In "Othello"we find especially this union
of passion and dignity how it is revealed
in his panther-like walkl In "Hamlet"
now sweetly he plays the scholar, in spite of
our feeling that his reserve power is too
great for the role. In the "Gladiator" all
that is grand in man as a human tortured
animal is grandest in him.
It is always a question how much an actor
should think and how much feel presence
of mind is a great necessity on the stage.
A great scene is often ruined if, in the
height of passion, when the actor feels most
he cannot also think. One night while Sal
vini was playing the dagger scene in 'Mac
beth" he felt his cloak slipping to the
ground. If he had picked it up it would
have broken into his aoting in a common
place manner; if he had let it lie where it
fell it would have attracted attention to it
self as a bright spot on the stage. Without
a moment's hesitation he conceived a piece
ot action to cover me accident He shiv
ered as it fell to his feet as from the touch
of an unseen presence; then, glancing ner
vously around, crouching lower ana lower,
he suddenly in terror caught it up, wrap
ping it around him, stood 'trembling, while
the house applauded and thought he was
playing better than ever.
Fechter had a wonderful power of making
the most of an accident He once acted in
a play; where the grand effect was a vessel
sweeping across the stage in full sail
witn tne nero standing in the prow. The
sea in those days was an old biue and green
streaked canvas, with a lot of little boys
bobbing up and down under it to make the
waves. The canvas was very rotten and as
the vessel came in full sight all of a sudden
a little head bobbed through a hole and was
seen alone on the waste of waters. The
scene would have been turned into the
rankest comedy, but Fechter, with a cry,
stood up and shrieked "Alan overboard!"
leaning over the vessel's side, seized the boy
and tore him through the canvas, held him
aloft in a tableau so splendid that the-audi-ence
forgot the absurdity and- the scene was
SALVINI AS OTHELLO.
Salvini's most criticised work is his
death in "Othello." The last act is very
exciting and sometimes actors forget their
words when carried away by emotion. A
provincial actor gave away to such an ex
tent that in the last speeches he could only
command the sound and not the sense a
thing which often happens to clever actors,
when instead of stopping they fill in with a
word ot similar length and accent, but
sometimes very amusing in the combina
tion. He found himself unstrung, knowing
that he did not recollect the words or the
lines about "shedding tears as fast as the
Arabian tree his medicinal gum," and
saved himself with "shed tears as fast as
the Venetian trees their Abyssinian gums."
Salvini was a pupil ot the 'great actor
Gustave Modena. who also instructed
Kistori and Bossi, but Salvini was the pride
of his life. .Salvini's repertoire contains
more than 200 roles.
In the same city and not far away lives
Bossi in his youth the favorite stage lover
ot Italy the greatest Borneo. He is also
possessed of great wealth. His house is
packed with trophies ot his triumphs
crowns of gold, laurel wreaths, daggers and
jewels, for his greatest tours have been in
.Russia and South America, where they love
to throw gold at their favorites. He always
replies when asked if he can speak English
"Ay, aivery inch a keeng" the only words
he knows, and with which he used to astonish
his American audiences, suddenly bursting
out with them in his Italian Lear.
Bistori was the daughter of a strolling
player. "When quite young a wealthy Ital
ian noble, the Marquis dell Gollo, fell in
love with her, married her and took her
away from the stage. She had great beauty
and wit, and such a voice! After a number
of years she appeared with amateurs in a
charity performance in Kome, and acted so
superbly that all the public clamored for
her return to the stage, and even her noble
relations withdrew their opposition in the
.face of such genius. No actress has ever
aroused the social fnrore which Bistori ex
cited at that time.
A LIFE OF EASE.
Now Bistori simplv leads the life of a
great society lady she has wealth a num
ber of palaces in Borne, servants in livery,
carriages and every luxury that appertains
to her high position. When Mary Ander
son was in Borne Bistori was very kind to
her and frankly admired her as a fresh,
sweet young girl. She neversaw her play
ing, perhaps she devined she could not, for
she is rather jealous of new rivals, even
though she herself is retired from the stage.
She detests Bernhart.
Some time ago, while excavating the cel
lar of one of her palaces, a fine collection of
antique bronzes was discovered. Strangely
enough, most of them were of dramatic sub
jects. Theyare now in her art gallery.
I heard a young American artist in Paris
tell a very amusing story of Salvini. The
young artist had lived in a New England
boarding house where there was a fat old
Yankee widow who had never been to the
theater in her life, was a devout church
.woman, and disapproved of "play actors."
She was most severely moral, yet enjoved
scandals, and delighted in reading aloud" at
the breakfast table the most ample newspa
per "revelations," and especially reveled in
a good divorce trial with "details" at the
same time disproving of them with great se
verity. It was at the time of some domestic
infelicity of Marie Prescott, Salvini's lead
ing lady. The old dame read aloud in full
the trial, then turning suddenly on our art
"Who is this Marie Prescott?"
"O, she supports Salvini," he replied.
"Supports Salvini! why, what do you
mean? I thought he was very rich. Isn't
he that great I-talian actor?"
