Mangrove swamps encompass the bay and
are infested with herons. The tide falling
discloses the black mud and oysters cling

found in the depths, and during the rainy
season mosquitoes swarm by millions. Eight
miles inland is a range of mountains very
At the entrance to the bay, crowning a
hill, are the remains of a fort which is
rarely occupied. But at the lower end of
the bay, squatting, as it may be, on the
edge of the swamp in the midst of buzzing
mosquitoes and squawking herons, is a
dock and shed where military can always
be seen. Five miles inland are some bar
racks where the officers live. A more dis
agreeable place to be sent to is hard to
imagine. The poor, ignorant people who
eke out an existence in the region seem
incapable of mischief. No one would think
that this is the most dangerous locality
in all Cuba. In the mountains, whose out
line can be plainly seen, is many a rebel,
who is perfectly secure from the authori
ties. There is a world of romance locked
up in these woody heights.

Aside from the political character that
attends thg, Crfban majority in Key West
there is a mercantile phase to the question.
Everybody knows about the excellence of
Key West) cigars. Now this tobacco is sent
over from’ Cuba. The only reason that the
Key West cigar has claims to superiority
over New York productions is that better
tobacco is obtained cheaper by the Key
West manufacturers. This of course ap
plies'-in a general way, and Cubans assent
to the truth rrfit.
I inferred from a ciiance remark made to
me by an American resident ~ef~J£ey West
that Cubans must have facilities Toroid
taining the tobacco in Key W’est that are
not available farther north. Despite the
watchfulness of the United States officials
there is an enormous amount of the weed
smuggled into Key West. This is done in
various ways, by tricks well known to the
customs officers. 1 was instructed by a
stranger whom I met at Key West to go
into a coffee house th buy my cigarettes,
and to be sure to ask for some “without
stamps.” He told me that I could obtain
them at 80 cents a real, while the usual
price was $1.20. I did as he suggested. I
entered a dirty little shanty, asked for cig
arettes “without stamps.” But unfortu
nately three companions greedily followed
me in, and the proprietor, a villainous look
ing scamp, assured me he had none of the
articles such as I wanted.
A comrade of mine, however, later went
to a coffee house, and following the in
structions that 1 had received, soon pos
sessed a real of cigarettes on which there
was no government stamp. They were
manufactured in Havana (the number and
street have escaped my memory) and'were
smuggW into America. Strangers, and
natives, too, are frequently approached on
the street by a negro or a Cuban, who has
his pockets stuffed full of cigars. He offers
them to you at two for a nickle. I assure
you if you buy them you will never regret
it. They ace equal to the best you can ob
tain at reputable establishments..
