thought Cuha should In; the place for us

sa'nl Mr. Iilainc, "Cuoa i.s the natural

fever. Under tin? direction of our emi
nent sanitarians I have not the slightest
doiiht that the exi.-lin cause of this
dreaded disease could he exterminated
from every part of the territory of Culm.
In point of economy it would he cheaper
for the United States to luy the islaud
from Spain at almost any cost rather
than it should he a constant menace
to the health and prosperity of the
southern states. The cost, directly and
indirectly, to the hus'u ess of the country
during the la-t yellow fever was greater
than tii j yalue of Cuha, even if you put
it on a nu ie money hasis. Hut when you
consider the peril to life which the fever
constantly brings, its purchase would not
he dear at any prh c. The next ohjtct
which makes it valuable is its relation to
the United States as a strategic point. It
practically controls the Gulf of Mexico.
It actually commands positions which
we oUi;ht, in the natural order of things,
to posess and control. In regard to its
contributing to our wealth, Cuba in the
Irmda of Yankee people and by that I
mean the thrifty, energetic, inventive
American race would add immensely to
our prosperity. Under the control of
skilled labor its productive resources
wolfl be increased a hundred fold."

about -1 '. Tlu mayor elect is F. J. Kie

Utah to elect a gentile mayor, and the

There was a big time at Fitzgerald's
Hall last night. The hill was crowded
to suffocation set under management of
Mr. O'Connor and Col. D ive McKutee as
sisted by (.'apt. Will Fitzgerald who had
charge of the dance floor and every body
was pleased and went home happy.
The booths were one of the main
features of the entertainment. It charmed
the heart of the reporter of Tare IIkkald.
It w is simply gorgeous and magnificent,
but the reporter will defer his report un
til tomorow evening w hen he will give a
detailed account of the names of all tho
ladies who participate at the booth and a
full synopsis of the display with a full
account of the drawing. There will be a
large picture, painted by the ar
tistic hajd of one of the sisters,
voted for this evening, valued at $100.
The contestants are Mayer llichey and
Dr. Theo. Livingston. Come citizens

A Kangaroo Drive.
Kangaroos arc a great scourge- to tlio
farmers in some pin ts of Aust ralia. They
Jostroy the grass and literally starve the
slu-ep oil the plains. This forces the
fanners to devise ineans for killing them
off. and a "drive" is the one generally
employed. A yard with a high fence is
built on the plain, and two fences run
from it for a long distance, coming to
gether like the letter V, ami all the nien,,
boys and blacks in the neighborhood ai p
mounted on horseback and scour tho
country for miles around. They drive
the kangaroos into the jaws of tho V,
and thence into the yard, where the
blacks enter with clubs and begin the
work of slaughter.
Mr. Knox descri'oea a little "drive" his
party had on their own account: There
were ten or twelve kangaroos feeding
quietly, and we were within a few hun
dred yards of the;i( bfofti they were,
aware of it. At the first alarm they
rose on their hind legs and took a look
all around, and a second later they were
away. How the' did jump! They
seemed to go thirty or forty feet at a
time, but our host said it was little more
than fifteen feet We let the dogs,

Supper After tbe l'ly.
The Sun is asked "whether it Is con
sidered good form to take a young lady
'o supper after a performance at tho
Authorities differ. If you think the
young lady is hungry, however, you
might bo justified in doing so, even
though you should limit your own lunch
eons for a week afterward to make good
the expense incurred.
Secondarily, it depends upon the girl.
Plump girls are not apt to order and cat
as vorac iously as thin girls. This is no
cording to Max Muller and Professor
Huxley. A judicious outlay for bon
bons early, in the evening, however, will
often check the feminine tendency to
ward terrapin after the play.
Moreover, you should bo guided in
somo degree by details of time and
place. If you havo ljeen at the German
ojn-ra, the difference of an hour or two
in getting homo will not weigh with tho
home authorities.
But, seriously, if yon have oon at the
theatre until say 11 p. ui. , it there is a
married lady in the party, it is well enough
to ask tho crowd to eat, as they say in
Ix-adviilo. But if you are escorting a
young lady without a chaperon it Is in
better taste to say nothing about supper,
since there is a distinct prejudice ngainst
young ladies going into restaurants at
that hour except in a party whereat least
ono married lady is apt to bo found.
This idea is sensible and good and most
peoplo 6eo its fitness.
Whcjo young people are very old
friends they may feel like taking a little
latitude in such matters. There can be
no possible harm in the act, but as it is
liable to provoke unkindly comment,
tho young gentleman should consider
that any special comment by strangers
upon a lady is in itself most undesirable
in every way, and he should reflect that
other people have no means of knowing
that he and his companion are more to
each other than mere acquaintances in
society New York Sun.
