Preparation for the official evacuation of Cuba are proceeding apace. Secretary of War Root. President-elect Palma. Senor Tamayo, the present
Cuban secretary of state, and General Wood are now busily arranging all the details so that there will be no hitch when the actual official evacuation
goes into force on May 20th, next. General Wood is now in Havana and will be in official charge of the evacuation. The American withdrawal will be
complete; the only vestige of American authority to remain being several com panies of United States coast artillery that will garrison Cuba's coast
until the native Cuban military force Is thoroughly organized. The hoisting of the Cuban flag on Morro castle will mark the Important event.

"See that man stifling a yawn?" said
the man who takes an Interest In curi
ous little things, to his neighbor.
"Well, keep your eyes open, and see
The man who had unlimbered his
jaws was sitting with three or four
hundred others In a stuffy little church
where a masculine-looking female se
verely clothed in black was holding
forth on the subject of "The Predis
position of the Fijlian Toward the
Softening Influences of Christianity."
The talk was dreary and wearisome
enough, but hardly so depressing as to
account for the maxillary manifesta
tions that followed the initial yawn.
One by one gloved hands went lazily
up all over the house, to cover the un
due display of dental furniture. Doz

Jaws sought relief In good, wide, sat
isfying yawns. Dozens more in front
and behind the pioneer yawned broad
ly one after another. In a few minutes
the epidemic died away as quickly as
"Did you observe all that, and catch
on to what I was driving at?" said the
philosopher in odds and ends. "Per
haps you didn't see the connection, but
it is a fact that everybody in the room
yawned for no other reason in the
world than because the first man did.
I won't attempt to explain the mental
or physical phenomenon of the reason
why yawns are as contagious as
cholera, but it nevertheles true.
"It's a funny thing, as I- curl"
on, but anvbodv who hapil lnk
to watch people around him may see
the same yawning epidemic follow a
single facial stretch. I don't know
what causes it; I dare say you know
no more about It than I do, and I never
heard of a doctor who could explain it.
The single and singular fact remains
that whenever two or more persons are
together, and one of them yawns un
consciously or with intent all the oth
ers in the party will follow suit with
out knowing what they are doing. I
say the first yawner need not do It un
consciously, if he wishes, in the inter
est of science, to te3t the working of
"I was on a North Side street car the
other day with a friend, when I hap
pened to think of this very thing. I
turned to my companion, and, for want
of a better subject to gossip about, I
told him pretty much what I am tel
ling you. He scoffed at the idea, said
I must have been carried away by a
coincidence, or even by what Edward
Everett Hale calls a 'coincidence of the
third order,' but I knew I was right.
To prove the thing I tried a practical
demonstration. 'Now I said to him,
'watch what follows.'
"There were about twenty people In
the car, men and women going home
in the evening. I didn't know a soul
of the lot. I clapped my hands quick
ly and loudly, and then, when every
body in the car stared at me to as
certain the reason for the unusual
noise, I put my hand to my mouth,
and 'gaped,' as they call It in the rural
districts, widely and ostentatiously.
Nothing happened for about a minute,
and I was beginning to fear that my
theories were no good when a haughty
woman in the car saved the day. She
yawned so that I had a splendid view
of her esophagus before she got her
hand to her face to hide the display.
The day was saved, for in another
minute three-fourths of the people in
the car were concealing yawns. My
friend was forced to admit that It
looked queer." Indianapolis Journal.
"The man that hath not music in his
Is fit for treason, strategem and spoils;
But he who whistles coon songs all
Is fit for naught but death by oil that

The Bostonians have started on their
big tour of east and west with play
ing dates at all the Important cities
and towns. Frank Rushworth is with
the company continuing his clever
rendering of "Robin Hood." Rush
worth will be remembered by his clev
er work with Anna Held in La Poupee
and the "Circus Girl' and his later suc
cess with the Bostonians.
