The Cuban Yeomanry.
A very common sight in the cities an
large towns of Cuba, early in the morn
- iug, is to meet a Monlcro from the
country riding his donkey, to the tail
of which another donkey is tied, and to
this second one's tail a third, and so on
up to a dozen or less. These animal
are loaded with large panniers, fillea
with various articles of produce; some
bearing corn-stalks for food for city
animals; some hay or straw; others or
anges, or banaunas, or cocoauuts, etc.;
some wit bnnches of live fowls hang
ing by the feet over the donkey's back.
The people live, to use a common
phrase, "from hand to mouth,'' that is
they lay in no store whatever, and trust
to the coming day to supply its own
necessities. Hay, corn-stalks or grain
are purchased only in sufficient quanti
ties for the day's consumption. So
with meats, so with fruits, so with
everything. "When it is necessary to
send (o market, the steward or steward
ess of the house, always a negro man
or woman, is freely entrusted with the
required sum, and purchases according
to his or her taste or judgment. The
cash system is universally adopted, and
all articles are regularly paid for when
purchased. The Monteros, who thus
brisg their goods to market, wear
broad palm-leaf hats and striped shirts
over brown pantaloons, with a sword
by their side and heavy spurs upon
their heels. Their load once disposed
of, with a strong cigar lighted in their
mouth they trot back to the country
again to pile up the panniers, and on
the morrow again to supply the wants
of the town. They are an industrious
md manly race of yeomanry. History
X Cup of Tea.
A enp of tea is generally made the
wrong way.' In the first place the tea is
made too strong, thus losing the full
tea flavor. In the second the tea is
boiled, extracting the bitter tannic acid
from the leaf, while the true tea aroma
is lost by evaporation. In China the
tea is made weak, in the cups from
which it is drank, the water being
poured boiling hot on the leaves, cov
ered for a few minutes, and then drank
without either milk or sugar; the Chi
nese consider our use of them in tea as
by no means the least proof of our bar
barism. Dut that is a matter of taste.
The water with which tea is made
should be fresh, not drawn from the
boiler, nor taken from a kettle in which
it has been kept standing on the stove,
but freshly Loiled for the purpose, and
the kettle in which it is boiled should
only be used for water. Wash and scald
the teapot, and allow an even teaspoon
ful of tea for three cups of tea. Pour
a cupful of water on the leaves, cover
the teapot closely, and set for tea min
utes on the back of the stove or range
to draw. If you use a teapot "eosey''
i. e. a three-cornered bag of quilted
woolen to coverthe teapot the tea will
draw just as well on the table. Fill the
ten pot with hot water and send to the
table. It is absolutely necessary that
the water used to draw the tea should
be boiling hubblingfuriously, not mere
ly at the boiling point; but the tea
should never boil an instant after it is
poured on. A lump of loaf sugar put
into the teapot with the 1 a is said to
hasten the infusion.

John Baulks, Koekfonl. Winnebago Co.
Here Hilton LI red.
. Ia the early part of the year 1S77, the
last of the numerous houses inhabited
by .Milton, the poet, was levelled to the
ground. It was situated in Petty
France now Queen Anne's Gate
Westminster, and originally overlooked
the Green Park, the back of the build
ing opening into York street. In this
house "the greatest of poets passed the
happiest and saddest years of his life.
When compelled by ill-health, in 1652,
to resign the situation of Latin Secre
tary to the Privy Council, he removed
from Scotland Yard to Petty France,
where, in communion with the first
scholars of the age, he lived for eight
years, surrounded by all the moral
worth of his time. Here his first wife
died in giving birth to her fourth child,
and Milton, shortly after her death mar
rying again, here also lost, from a sim
ilar cause, his second wife, in twelve
months after marriage. Lastly, it was
in this house that he became totallj
In demolishing the house, the stone
tablet erected to ililtou's memory, and
afHxed to the wall by Jeremy Pentham,
who afterwards occupied the next
premises, was carefully preserved.' It
bore the following inscription: "Sa
cred to Milton, Prince of Poets." It is
said that when Bentham took visitors
to view the House he compelled them
to kneel before the slab. This must
have been meant as a grim jest. The
eccentric recluse was no lover of poet
ry. As a duty, he once read Milton's j
worns through, but he used to declare
that all time spent in reading or writ
ing poetry was 3adly misapplied.
Everybody ought to be good, and
honest, and virtuous; it is impossible to
be too honest; but how few of us are
really sol There are a great many peo
ple who are honest away from home.
They make home promises only tc
break thein. As husbands thry m.ike
a thousand and one promises to their
wives, and hint a thousand good things
and raise many pleasant expectation
that they never seem to think of again.
As wives they practice a thousand lit
tle deceits, equivocate many times,
when straight-forward honesty was
just the thing required. As parent
they conceal, go around the truth, de
ceive and often falsify to their children,
when the truth is always the better,
always the best. The children see their
parents' double dealings, see their want
of InU-grily, and learn to cheat, deceive
and equivocate. The child is too often
a "chip of the old block."
The Tape's Reward.
Many a noble youth has been reward
ed for kindness and consideration to
tho mother who watched with tender
care and solicitude his early stepe, not
always with a prize of money, but at
least with the proud consciousness of
making her happy to whom lie owes so
much. A story is related of Frederick
tne ureat, that one day, ringing his
bell, nobody came, so he opened the
door of the ante-chamber and found hia
page sleeping on a chair. In going to
awaken him his first impulse was to
discharge him on the spot, but, seeing
a written paper hanging out of the
page's pocket, the king's curiosity and
attention were excited. lie drew it out
and found it to be a letter from the
page's mother, wherein she thanked her
son for his kind assistance in sending
her the bulk of his wages, and for which
Heaven would certainly reward him, if
he continued faithful to his majesty.
The king was moved by this discove
ry, and immediately fetched a purse of
ducats and slipped it, with the letter,
into the page's pocket. Soon after he
rang the bell and awoke the page, who
at once made hi3 appearance. ' Surely
you have been asleep," said the king.
The boy stammered part of an excuse I
ana part or a confession, and putting
his hand in his pocket found, to his sur
prise, the purse of ducats. He drew it
out, pale and trembling, but unable to
speak a syllable. "What is the mat
ter?" said the king. "Alas! your ma
jesty," said the page, falling on his
knees, "my ruin is intended. I know
nothing of this money." "Why," said
the king, "fortune came while you were
d.w(jiu(5. tun may seuu it to your
mother, with my compliments, and as
sure her I M ill provide for you both."
Sir. BPKimher's Statement.
My theory is that a mother's chief
duty is the taking care of her children.
How came I by this theory? I came
by it through the newspapers. I never
took up one that did not tell of dishon
est clerks, corrupt officials, theft and
One day I went into Mrs. Fennel's
kitchen where I found the women folk
in a state of great consternation. The
cakes were all fried for tea, but the salt
had been forgotten. "Sprinkle some
over thein," said I, "twill strike through
-on, no!" said Mrs. F., "the salt
must be mixed in the dough at the be-ginning."
"There," thought I, "that's the figure

Uarbadoe, first settled by the En

very observant visitor as the only West
India colony where Uritish stock has
taken firm root and where Uritish insti
tutions have thriven. Of its 167,000
souls, there were reckoned in 1S71 1J,
5C0 whites to 39,573 mulattoes and lO-V
904 blacks; which is at the rate of near
ly 1 white to 6 blacks, while in Jamaica
the rate is 1 to 30, in British Guiana 1
to 100. Nearly all the whjtes are natives
and many can trace from settlers of the
time of Charles I. Yet even here, with
a dry salubrious, bracing atmosphere,
unvisited by malaria and refreshed by
constant northeast winds, the Anglo
Saxon degenerates without frequent
re-enforcement of blood from England.
In the other West India islands he is
seen to far less advantage. It is to be
borne in mind that in the palmy davs
of Jamaica the planters were usually
