If lovo for your friends
In your heart glows warm.
And if, by their lives.
They win your admiration,
See you do not close your lips.
Through jealousy’s dictation,
But speak it.
If you have a mother dear.
And her lips your fain would kiss,
Kiss them !
Tis a sweeter kiss to her
Than any upon earth ;
Do not let her lips be sad
With loving kisses' dearth.
But press them!
T-et your hands be warm to clasp
Your loved one’s hands.
Why should we have affection.
If. with causeless objection.
Our lovo we do not show 7
Some have griefs they cannot tell
E'en to friends and kindred dear;
We do not know how much they need,
The loving hand, the gentle deed,
Their hearts to cheer.
'Tis said in His Holy Word
That he who waterclh
Shall himself lie watered;
Shed thou the gentle dew of love,
Winning men to things above.
E’en to Heaven !

SOME CUBAN HOMES—CUBAN FOR
TUNES—A HIDDEN WORK OF
The American in Havana is always
anxious to see something of the do
mestic life of the people, but it is a
curiosity that is exceedingly difficult
The women of the better class
rarely show themselves in public.
The disposition to isolate the women
is not quite so apparent as in the
countries of the moslem, yet it ap
proximates it to some degree. The
Cuban’s house is his castle, and the
stranger is not often permitted to
pass its portals. 1 had not been long
in Havana before I came upop a fact
that illustrates this. Thinking that I
could see more of the inner life of the
people by becoming domiciled in a
private family than remaining at a
hotel, I made some inquiries looking
to that end. It would seem that in a
city of a quarter of a million people
it would be easy enough to secure a
boarding-place. But a very brief in
vestigation sufficed to show that no
family of any respectability would re
ceive a stranger. In fact, it is rare
indeed that they will receive one of
their own people, so that the board
ing-house as a domestic institution is
This, of course, brings about cer
tain other customs that differ from
our own. 'Die people that have not
homes and a family circle of their
own must live in some way. But
the Cuban lives easily, and if he can
not have what he wants, will put up
with what he can get. The eniploy
, ees of a mercantile establishment of
ten live right where their work is.
At night they stretch a cot in any
vacant corner, not being particular as
to privacy. At meal time the table
is spread in the public business room.
They care not at all how many spec
tators they have. The business of
i living and the business of mer
chandising go on hand in hand. This
is a strange contradiction in their
customs—the austerity with which
they hedge about the privacy of the
home ami the publicity they give to
every other function of life.
Notwithstanding the care with
which they keep the stranger out, 1
have been able to see the interior of
various Cuban houses, so that I can
describe them with some correctness
of detail. But first, I will tell you
how I saw them. My first experi
ence was in Havana, when searching
for a boarding-house. My poor com
mand of Spanish and consequent-in
ability to make myself understood,
enabled me to penetrate more than
once to the inner sala in the endeavor
to make my wants known by panto
mine, and when there I used my eyes
to the best possible advantage. Again,
it was during a morning stroll in
Matanzns v ith a party of Americans.
Before starting out we had formulat
ed a ride that we should enter thro’
every open door and discover whith
er it lead. One of these doors, inad
vertantly standing open, led directly
into a very elegant residence. In the
gala a lady of some thirty years was
playing with a couple of bright-eyed
children. The lady catne nearer to
my ideal of the typical Cuban beauty
than any other I have seen; of good
form, fair height, with black eyes and
hair, and with an olive complexion
not spoiled with powder. While our
*• only means of communication was
pantomime, the lady was of quick wit
and soon discovered that we were
Americans, and inquisitive. With
many smiles and bows, and now and
then a little laugh that showed two
rows of white teeth she conducted us
'about the house with all the grace
and courtesy that she could have ex
tended to invited guests.
My third experience was in the
residence of a Spanish Don, whither
I was taken by the courtesy of an
American friend who has been long
a resident of Havana.
While these of which I have spok
en, and other residences of the bet
ter class may differ somewhat in de
tail, they follow a given plan with
much greater fidelity than do our
The exterior of the houses is not
often inviting or even pleasing to the
eye. Standing immediately upon the
street, with doors and windows closed,
and with no attempt at variety or
decoration, they are not to be told
from the shops or warehouses that
Passing over the threshold one is
first in a bare entrance hall. That is
only a passage-way and store-room
for the family carriage. There is
but one entrance so the house, and it
serves every purpose. The horse and
carriage enter here as well as the
family. The carriage remains, while
the horse is led on through the house
to his stall at the rear. Beyond this
hall and separated from it only by a
half-door or perhaps a wicker gate is
the sala or the reception-room, the
sitting-room of the family. This
room is generally a pleasant one,
having a tiled floor, a sky-light above,
(for it is in the centre of the house
and consequently can have no win
dows) and is adorned with statuary,
with flowers, and with vases of green
tropical plants. In the centre of the
floor is a rug (I have not yet seen a
carpet in Cuba), and upon each side
of the rug are arranged rows of rock
ing chairs facing each other. These
rockers are of willow or cane, and al
ways of one pattern—a pattern that
1 have never seen anywhere else;
and this formal arrangement of the
chairs is so.absolutely universal that
I doubt that any Cuban housewife
would have the courage to vary it in
There are no doors, as we know
them, between the rooms, but light
half-doors that come neither to floor
or ceiling and so hardly obstruct the
free passage of air. The bed-rooms
are upon cither side of the sala and
opening into it. The kitchen and
household offices are at the rear.
The kitchen is guiltless of a cooking
stove, and I doubt if there is a chim
ney in the Island, for of course fires
are never required for heating pur
poses. The cooking-range is merely
a stone slab into which small open
grates arc set. In these a handful of
charcoal is placed, the cooking uten
sils set over this—and as for the
smoke, it blowcth where it listeth.
Even the best of these homes ap
pear to the northerner as rather
sparsely furnished and have a, cheer
less, unhome-like look. As I have
said, there are no carpets and very
little upholstered furniture. There is
no paper or other bangings upon the
walls. There is not much of that
endless array of bric-a-brac, either, to
clutter up the rooms. In some of
them, however, are art treasures of
great value : paintings, statuary, rare
old books and manuscripts that would
make the antiquarian’s mouth water.
But not so much of this as form
erly. The insurrection laid waste
many a noble home and fortune, and
dispersed their treasures amongst the
pawn-brokers of Campobello street.
Before the insurrections there were
colossal fortunes among the Cubans;
some traces of these can yet be found.
The Case Espanql—the Spanish Club
of this city, holds forth in the former
palace of a Cuban sugar prince, and
it is a palace worthy of royalty both
in extent and finish. Upon the
Prado arc the ruins of a huge build
ing which never went beyond the
first story. It occupies a whole
block, and this first story is massively
built of stone. But it has stood as it
now is for twenty years, for the for
tune tiiat was to have made it the
most magnificent residence upoii the
Island, melted away before the hot
breath of the Insurrection.
1 have spoken of these art treas
ures in general—but I may bo per
mitted to speak of one in particular
which 1 was privileged to see, with
out entrenching upon private confi
dences. This is a painting that is
not less notable because of its history
than from its intrinsic worth. In the
home of the Senorde Salgado, an of
ficer of the Spanish Navy, is an un
doubted Rembrandt of great value.
The title of the picture is, “The Aus
trian Duke of Guell Cursing His Fa
ther Through the Bars of His Pris
on.” This is the property of the Se
nora Thuresita Soule de Salgado, a
grand-daughter of Pierre Soule of
Louisiana, one time United States’
Minister to Madrid and afterward Fi
nancial and Diplomatic agent of the
Confederate Government in Europe.
During his incumbency of his post
at Madrid there was an insurrection
of some magnitude in the city and
Soule was fortunate in being able to
afford Queen Christina protection in
the American Consulate. Sovereigns
do not reward such services lightly,
and as a token of gratitude she gave
Soule this painting. Upon his re
turn to this country from Madrid he

brought it with him and placed it in
his home in New Orleans. This was
in 1854 or 1855. Here it remained
until the dark days of the Civil war,
when it was taken to Mexico for safe
keeping. At the time of the Phila
delphia Exposition, an effort was
made to secure the loan of the pic
ture from the heirs of Soule, but
without Success. An offer of 860,000
was also then made for the picture,
and refused. And now it is hidden
from the world behind the barred
windows of a salon in this tawdry
and faded Spanish capital.
The story of this picture is a ro
mance. It is but one among ten
thousand of the romances and trage
dies that the city and Island have
known. But the greatest tragedy
romance of all is that of the smolder
ing hatred that always exists here be
tween the slaves and their masters—
I mean between the Cubans and the
Spaniards. I have spoken of the
Case Espinol, the Spanish club. It
is rich and powerful, numbering more
than two thousand members, and has
possessed itself of the palace of a
ruined Cuban. Since its conversion
into a club-house probably no Cuban
has ever entered it. The Cubans of
Havana have also a club—but no
club house. It is in little matters of
this sort that the contrast between
the two classes is shown to be an ir
repressible conflict. It smoulders—
and they buy and sell together, and
smile and smirk and shrug and say
polite nothings. But they laugh
about the edge of a volcano. There
are many acts of the Spaniard that
the Cubans find it hard to forgive or
forget; but of all the crimes that have
ever been perpetrated on this fair
Island under the name of law and
government, none can compare with
the execution of the eight Cuban
students to satisfy the demands of
the Spanish Volunteers on the 27th
of November, 1871. That awful day
will never be forgotten and the time
will come when the murder of those
gallant boys will be revenged. I have
talked with many Cubans upon it,
and though twenty years have passed
since the deed was done I have yet
to find one who could speak of it dis
passionately. Yet that was but one
incident of that long “reign of terror”
during which more than five thou
sand Cubans were tried, condemned
and executed for “high crimes and
misdemeanors.” AV hen one think*,
upon these things, and then watches
the busy, careless, insouciant life of
the city, he can only wonder at the
marvellous characters of these South
rons, and look on as we do at the
play, where mimic tragedy and bur
lesque follow each other in rapid suc
cession. „ James Knapp Reeve.
WHY HE GAVE SO MUCH.
AVe have a beautiful illustration of
the blessedness of giving, in the story
of a merchant in St. Petersburg, who
maintained several native missiona
ries in India at his own expense, be
sides giving liberally to the cause of
Christ at home. AVhen some one
asked him how he could afford to
give so much, he replied as follows :
Before my conversion, when I
served the w orld and self, I did it on
a grand scale and at the most lavish
expense. And when God, by his
grace, called mo out of darkness, I
resolved that Christ and his cause
should have more than I had ever
spent for the world. And, as to giv
ing so much, it is God who enables
me to do it; for, at my conversion, I
solemnly promised that I would give
to his cause a fixed proportion of all
that my business brought in to me,
and every year since I made that
promise, it has brought me in about
double what it did the year before,
so that I easily can, as I do, double
my gifts for his service.”
And why should it be thought at
all strange that this man should Ipve
given so much? Was he not simply
doing not only what he agreed to,
but what it was his duty to do?
Whose was his money, anyhow ? It
certainly did not belong to him. It
was God’s gift, entrusted to his stew
ardship, and he was really bound to
dispense it, according to the wisdom
that God gave to him.
Many Christian people have queer
notions about the property that they
hold. They act as though they were
the absolute owners of all they hold
in possession, and as though they had
a right to do just as they please with
it, without being at all accountable to
anyone. Now, that man took the
only right view of his possessions,
and the consequence was, ho gave as
God prospered him; and God did
prosper him, not only temporally but
spiritually. Ho gave largely, be
cause God gave largely to him. It
was blessed for him to give, for oth
ers besides himself, were blessed.

DELIGHT IN GOD’S HOUSE.
Lesson for May 8,1892.
Scripture Lesson : Psalm 84:1-12.
Motto Text.—Blessed are they
that dwell in thy house. Psalm
It is not known, now, who wrote
this Psalm; but it was probably writ
ten by David at Mahanaim, during
his exile from Jerusalem at the time
that Absalom rebelled, and was dedi
cated to the sons of Korah, a Levit
ical family of singers, and who also
were “keepers of the gates of the
tabernacle.” (1 Chron. 9:19.) Some
think that one of the sons of Korah
wrote it, and expressed the feelings
of David and his companions when
they were in exile. The writer is at
a distance from- God’s house, and
yearns for its worship. The Psalm is
full of sweet memories and joyous
A BRfEF ANALYSIS
Will show us the scope of the Psalm.
1.1. How amiable are thy tabernacles 0
Lord of hosts!
2. My soul lougeth, yea, even fainteth for
the courts of the Lord: my heart and my llcsh
crieth out for the living God.
3. Yea, the sparrow hath found an house,
and the swallow a neat for herself, where she
may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord
of hosts, my King and my God,
Being absent from participation in
public worship, the author states how
dear to his heart is the sanctuary of
God, and how worthy it is of his af
fection. He then expresses his strong
desire to enjoy the worship of God
there—a privilege denied to him, but
enjoyed by unconscious birds.
11. 4. Blessed are they that dwell in thy
house: they will still be praising thee.
5. Blessed is the man whose strength is in
thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
<1 Who passing through the valley of Baca
make, it a well: the rain also filloth the pools.
7. They go from strength to strength, every
one of them in Zion appqaretb before God.
He dwells upon the happiness of
those whose privilege it is to be pres
ent in God’s house, and praise him
there continually; and then sings of
the joy and blessedness of those pil
grims, who are journeying to God's
house for worship i their love and joy
are represented as opening fountains,
on their way, in the dreary valleys;
but, as they proceed, they gather
fresh Aftheir jojirney, and
every one th thwffi reaches the. aim
of his pilgrimage, hnd worships God
in his temple.
111. 8. O Lord of hosts, hear my prayer: give
ear, O God of Jacob.
0. Behold. O God, our shield, and look upon
the face of thine anoiitted.
10. For a day in thy Courts is better than a
thousand. I had rather be a door-keeper in
the house of my God tluw to dwell in the tents
11, For the Ixird is a sun and shield: the Lord
will give grace and glory: no good thing will
ho withhold from them that walk uprightly.
In a fervent prayer, the Psalmist
npw begs that such blessedness may
be his. Ho implores God’s protec
tion from his enemies and earnestly
solicits the divine favor for himself—
(by “thine anointed” is meant David
himself.) To him the most humble
place and position, in God’s sauctunry
is preferable to Hying with and enjoy
ing the highest honors among wicked
sinners. And the reason is, because
God is the source of life, joy and pro
tection, and he will not withhold
from the righteous—those who act
uprightly in his sight—any good
IV. 12. O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man
that trnstoth in thee.
Finally, the Psalmist bursts forth
into a joyiul and grateful exclama
tion—“O, the blessedness!” of “the
man”—of any man, —who trusts in
God, even though cut off from God’s
house! By faith he may commune
with God, who is in every place, and
he may receive grace and glory,
which, like sunshine, are poured upon
all the earth. The hope of this di
vine blessing should encourage each
and all to “walk uprightly,” trusting
in God, at every step. This verse is
the natural and logical conclusion of
the whole psalm.
