It was suppressed and its leaders
condemned to death; she, however,
pardoned them. This was followed
by a decree, treeing the slaves in
Cuba from their remaining years ol
servitude. This class comprises
those negroes born in slavery be
fore 1870 and not yet sixty years of
age. Practically slavery is extinct
in the island of Cuba. There is
some apprehension that both of
those benevolent acts will get her
into trouble. Her ministry resign

rebels, and the planters of Cuba art'

THE DOMESTIC SERVANTS
Complaints are frequently made
by he ids of families, wh cli are
picked up and descanted upon by
curtain newspapers as to the unreli
ability of servants, and that good
servants are very scarce and seems
as a class to be on a rapid decline.
Many families however lose good
servants on account of the ignor
ance of domestic affairs of those
having the direc.ion of the house
hole.. There is sure to be consider
able friction between the untrained
mistress of the house and the well
trained servant, and c msiderable
contusion and more di.-satisfaciioii.
The mistress should have a thor
ough knowledge of housekeeping,
understand how to manage s, rvant.-
with little or no friction and mak<
the management ot household mat
lets a pleasure instead of as now
complai led of one of labor. .Thi
subject is one tiiat is attracting
attention in all cities. Some pipers
are disposed to fix the difficulty ol
securing reliable servants in thi.-
section of the country on the fact
that nine tenths of them are colon d.
These papers are wrong ho e ei
as New York is undergoing tin
same trouble-, where ninety nim
one hundredths of flie servants nr<
white, as shown by the following
from the Tiibune after speaking ol
the toiling women in the factories

are compelled to maintain thim

the ■ lass ot worn© 1 dev ited to such

at once more exacting, more capri
cious, less efficient and less trust

that it is ha der every year to find

standard of wages isiising ail the
time. How can those facts be rec
‘ Jt may be said that the working

machine are in a large proportion ol
cases wives and mothers, and there
fore cou'd not leave 'heir families

is true of a certain number, but not.
we believe, of the majority, and it
it questionable whether even those
who have children could not, with
with advantage to themselves and
their families, make the change
suggested. It may also be objected
that few of the workingwomen
know any thing of the duties de
manded of strvants. That objec
tion, however, has no validity, for
it would be impossible to conceive
of deeper ignorance than the major
ity of the green immigrants who go
into service bring to their work
when they begin it. Nor indeed
is the efficiency of tho e who hive
had considerable exp rience any
thing to be proud of, for the prob
lem which seems to absorb the
attention of most of them is how
to get the most wages for tne least
work. In ihe ranks of the working
women starvition wage* are main
tained as much bytlie competition of
their feliows seeking work as by
the competition among cua us ictur
eis' If thi* surplus population,
which now presses so heavily upon
the women workers, could be di
verted into other channel* of indus
try, the workingwomen (ould | rob
ably obt un bet er pay. But why i
.it t,bat the manifest advantages <|d
domestic service do not attract
those who are compelled to main -
“The position of the servant is
almost ideally good. She is well
I housed, well fed, paid, and her daily
work is as a rule mere pastime in
comparison with that of a.-ewing
woman. She has a comfortable
room, lives as well as her employ
ers, has her appointed times of
re reation and outing, and can
always if prudent save more in a
year than her less fortunate si.-ters
can in a lifetime. Why is it then
that while the house work is much
pleasanter, lighter and better paid
than that of the factories, the
supply of good servants is never
equal to the demand, and thousands
ui women wear out their lives in
misery and indigence while this
honorable and advantageous means
of livelihood is at their door.-? It
can hardly be believed that preju.
due against domestic service is the
explanation of this anomalous state
of things, for certainly the social
position of a self-respecting servant
is not below that, of an employe in
a factory. There is no humiliation
in the work. It is perfectly re
spectable and even honorab e when
performed with a sense of duty, as
George Herbert long ago pointed
out. The women who are now
slaving at tlkir machines could
assured y de it quite as well as it is
done in n neteen cases out of iwtn
ty. They would find no difficulty
in obtain.ng situatioi s, for house
keepers all over the city are
lansacking the intelligence officer
lor help. Perhaps What is needed
is just the initiative. Duii.g the
