THOSE CUBAN TEACHERS. I>i:( U,l VHITIKS OP THE INTEREST. INC VISITORS TO OLD HARVARD. They Are Naive mid Emotional—They Go to lloil When it Thunders— Hovv Tliey Plnokeil Prof. Sargent'* Mirutok— I Their Serenade of Prof. Frye—Pcoiile Wlio Would Enter tain Them for Notoriety’s Sake. Taking Cats Home. * From the New York Sun. Cambridge, Mass., July 22.~Tie Cubans continue to be the most interesting phe omena that Harvard University has stud ied in many a year. Though they have been here nearly three weeks now time does not fade nor custom stale their in finite variety. The Boston newspapers devote something like a column a day to the chronicling of their latest eccen tricities and none the less the newspaper reading public clamors for more. It seems impossible to give people a surfeit of the Cuban senoritas. And Indeed they are charming, these strange, beautiful, elu sive girls who flirt mildly with the Har vard guides, who embrace their cha|eron on an average of ten times In five min utes, who go to bed when it thunders and dance with every evidence of delight through an evening of such heat as brings down strong men in anguish to the sea! Is it any wonder that we steady-going, phlegmatic Cantabrigians have surrender ed to their entrancing personality? They are so naive, so ingenuous. Last Sunday, for Instance, when they went out to a reception on the beautiful Sar gent estate which adjoins Mrs, Jack Gard ner’s place in Brookline, an estate pos sessing trees which are a. wonder for miles around and where to pluck bits of souvenir stuff is almost to commit an un pardonable crime against the god Prof. Sargent of Boston's beautiful Arnold ar borteum worships, how funny it was to see the sang froid with which the youths end maidens innocently displayed to their host and hostess the pretty things they were taking away with them in order that they might better remember the pleasant afternoon! Of course, Prof. Sargent smiled os did also his charming wife. At such times the Cubans are like happy ohiidifen in their innocence and joy. They are instinctively well-bred, though. They would sooner have gone to a ball without powder on their faces than have done such a thing as pick Prof. Sargent's shrubs if they had not felt that to him os to them the act gave pleasure. In Cuba a host lays his all at his guest’s feet. How should they know ihat our manners and customs are different? In deed, they are almost pathetic in their endeavor to conform in all things to that which they understand to be expected of them. There have been reports that the girls were, not amenable to chaperon rule, but this is false. They are almost cling ing in their devotions to the young col lege women, who are doing so much to make the Cambridge days pleasant ones. Almost all the senoritas brought from their own home pretty things to give the lady with whom they should have most to do and the distribution of these little gifts is one of the most touching things In all the experience of the chaperons. Then at the balls the girls are so anxious to have the young men with whom they are dancing know how kind the ehaperon is to them! They endeavor in very pretty, quaint English to perform a presentation after the American mode and then the Cuban youth always asks in his best manner to see the chaperon's card. Thus it comes about that many an American maid who has resolved not to see any thing of the Cuban men—that's not her duty—finds herself dancing quite content edly with the slim gentlemanly youths whom her charges’ devotion has led up for her kind attention. It would be interesting to know whether In the long run the Cubans or the Ameri cans will be most educated by the Uto pian educational scheme for which Mr. Frye may be thanked. We are learning so much from the visit. o much of softness. | of gentleness, of breadth and of the mel- i lowing influence of enthusiasm. Spon taneity Americans have always recog nized as a beautiful thing in the abstract, but we really know very little of a spirit like that which sent some Cubans franti cally about Cambridge on last Tuesday morning looking for a band w ith w’hich to serenade in the evening the man they almost worship, Alexis Frye. They nad somehow gotten it into their heads that last Tuesday was Mr. Frye’s birthday, and although the person who should have known best about the matter asserted that he had a distinct impression that hie birthday came in November the celebra tors were nor to be denied their pleasure by a little discrepancy like this and, fail ing to secure a band, practiced pluckily all the afternoon on “My Country ’Tis of Thee.” and other well-established favor ites that they might chant these stirring tunes outside Mr. Frye’s window in the evening. As i* happened the performance began in good season for there was a dance at the gymnasium and, of course, the girls could not miss that. So they all came together early outside President Eliot’s house, where Mr. Frye is now staying, and made elaborate music in the air for some half or three-quarters of an hour. Mean while Mr. Frye within, remembering the English custom of cheering the “waits” with something warm bethought himself that he, on such a tdr rid night, ought to sustain his serenaders with something cool. What to do, however, was the ques tion. The thirst of several hundred Cu bans would not be easy for the best house keeper In the world to quench at short notice and the Fryen are not really house keeping at all—they merely lodge at the President’s house and get their meals at commons. But the mind that put through a project so vast as the bringing of the Cubans to America was not to be dismay ed by a difficulty so trival as the enter tainment off hand of a few hundred warm thirsty people. So with a gracious “come over to the square and •'have some ice cream soda,” the hero of the evening emerged from his retreat and a happy crowd of Cubans set out to make a Har vard Square druggist momentarily afflu ent. Heady indignation as well as charming affability is, however, to l e found among tl>e emot ons with which Mr. Frye is equipped. On one occasion this week this indignation was not altogether to be oon- emned for Its cause was a lot of dis t: acted mall inquiries from Cuba evoked by the cabling over of cart less despatches made up from the scare heads a Boston i l er had half Jokingly displayed one day last week. The ’ story* ’to which the head lines had been attached was an innocuous t do of the discrepancy which everybody 1 n between the number of t* who w ere originally expected htr** and the numb-r of those who have r ally appeared. Naturally in any large <xciusion there are some who find at the last moment that they cannot go. Out of 3.<00 teacturs, 175 absentees were by no means extraordinary, particularly if one understands, as the Cambridge people do *‘<w, how next to impossible It is to get the Cubans anywhere at a given moment. M’hrn they are out on the sidewalk on their way to catch a special car which they know to be waiting for them they a •* quite as likely as roi, say their chap p ns, to want to go hack to get on a thicker pair of stockings or something tven more lementary. This sh> ws clearly enough how it came about that a rather large number failed to appear In time for (ho sailing of the I- ats. But the newspaper didn’t care for •h's; and “One Hundred and Scventy-ttve Cubans Lest” was too good a headline, to * omitted. Will, this 11 tie episode made Mr. Frye very angry, and it is really no wonder, for he has quite enough to do without being forced to answer by the • core agonized letters from poor Cuban mothers who have been led to fear that Sunburn, Chafing, Insect Bites, Burns.

It really is a grave question, though whether the Cubans are not being over emertained. In Float on. as in every large city, there exists a small number of peo ple who. possessing plenty of money and unlimited social aspiiations, seize every opportunity may present itself to let their light so sh ne before men that the world, through the newspaper, may sfe their good works and glorify the mammon, which is their pride. Some of thes sham philanthropists are now flood ing the < ffiee with invitations for the Cu bans. “Send us down fifty good-looking nos for a tea I am to give on Tuesday of next w ek.“ discerning eye leads betwe* n the lines of the graciously-worded, deli cately scented note. Well, the Cubans will go if they are asked. Denying themselves to visitors and refusing invitations play no part in their social economy. Thus it may come about, if care Is not taken, that the teachers will feel when they come to go home that they have been entertained in America for advertising purposes only. So far few specious hospitalities have been accepted. There are those in charge of the social end of the trip seem abun dantly to sift the wheat of true lov ing kindness from the chaff of vulgar de sire for ostentation. Before the Cubans arrived it was antic ipated that religious difficulties might pre sent themselves in the course of stay an<i everybody was plumed for the fray which was prophesied us at hand. When Mrs. Alice Gordon Gulick, well known for bet* remarkable work in conduc ting a highly successful non-sectarian school for girls in Spain, was appointed to act as dean of the woman's depart ment. the Roman Catholic press set up a cry for her removal. This demand was, however, quite without effect—as indeed it should have been, for if country had been searched through and through no other woman could have been found so capable as is Mrs. Gulick of discharging acceptably the multitudinous duties of dean to a thousand women, scarcely one of whom could speak English. But apart from the fact that Mrs. Gulick was kept, the Protestants gave up everything. It was. of course, well-known that the ma jority of the Cubans were Catholics, and that even the slightest disposition to put them under Protestant pastors and mas ters would be resented. So the Appleton chapell services were abandoned, the Phil lips Brooks house was decorated With dozens of “salas Catolicas” signs—as if the house were more Catholic than any thing else!—and no evangelical Church made even the slightest motion to bring it self or any of its work to the, front. Quite lately, however, it has leaked out that rnther a fair number pf the visiting teachers are Protestants, after all, and that a considerable proportion of these are Baptists. This evening, therefore, the largest and most elaborate single en tertainment yet provided for the Cubans will be given them in Sander’s Theater and Memorial Hall by the Baptist socie ties of Cambridge. There are to be re freshments. a good concert and a speech of welcome by Mayor Champlin, who, as it happens, is himself a Baptist. The situation is an interesting one, for if there is any sect poles apart from the Catholic Church that sect is the Bap fist. There are some who are disposed to wonder how generally the Baptists’ lavish hospitality will be accepted. Mean while the press is being abundantly sup plied with data concerning the vast pre ponderance of Catholics among the visit ors and elaborate accounts of the good which Is being done by the young men and young women in charge of the “syilas Catolleas’’ are met on every hand. The Cubans are not very' good Catho lics, though. There may be daily masses, but of what use are they if the teacher cannot be made to go to them? At* a recent “benediction’’ service /one of the priests who come over with the party st ored this laisser faire policy in religion with most tremendous energy. His ser mon was in tempestuous Spanish and ex ceedingly difficult for an American to fol low'. but that be was telling his hearers all about their sins of omission was evi dent to even the most dense. Cuba Libre, education, enlarged mental outlook—all would count for nothing, he vehemently asserted. If they didn’t stop forgetting, and that at once, to improve their relig ious privileges. And the pathetic thing about this magnificent burst of impassion ed rhetoric was that not more than a pal try handful of Cubans were in the big church to listen to it. At the very first. President Eliot re fused for the university’s guests solicita tions to go here, there and everywhere for the sake of attracting an audience and generally l*ooming up an unpopular and uninteresting cause. But now that ’he wise president has gone to his summer home there is nothing oo insignificant for the Cubans to be invited to attend. Next Saturday the poor senoritas are to be ed ucated In "the club Idea” along with a few other minor branches. The club la dles have discovered In Cuba a new* and heretofore unexplored field for exploitation and that they are bending themselves to the task of preparing it for seed goes, of course, without saying. So a party of fifty Cubans will attend a Federation meeting at one of the beach hotels near the city, and there will doubtless be stirringly addressed on “the greatest movement of the century. The College Club, a really distinctive organization, possessed of high idea la along social lines, gave the Cubans what was meant to be elaborate reception on Wednesday afternoon last, but the thundershowers made It impossible for the ladles to attend In as l*rgo numbers as had hern expected, and the thing rather fizzled, at least from the Cuban viewpoint. In Cuba the gentler sex retltes when It thunder#, and although the storm had been over a. full hour when the reception began, the time spent in bed had meant Just so much less leisure for the elaborate preparations considered a necessary pre liminary to such a function—and the la dles would always rather stay at home than go nnvwhere for which they must prepare In a hurry. They come nearer taking solid comfort In the tolfet than iitiy people our country has ever enter tained. One of the things the Cubans are de termined to teach Amir.cans is that they were acquainted with gas and electric IHE MORNING NEWS: SATURDAY. JULY 28, 1900. l ght even before they came to Cambridge that they do not need to be told not to blow out the gas. The elaborate diagrams by which 'they are informed how to man age this important necessity have really wounded the feelings of many of the teachers, whose homes are in large towns and who are quit? as tami.iar with “mod ern improvements” as wo are. Nor do ihey like any better being told that the incandeFcents must “not b* blown out nor lighted with a match.” That the sen o: itas are rot lacking in wit, howover, is shown by the fact that one of them recently remarked that she Intended to trace off a copy of the gas drawing to take home for a souvenir, J They intend to have souvenirs galore and in grpat variety.

Just now attractive cats are easy to get. for one of the new est Boston philanthropies i> a home where the vacationist may send his feline, and from where this place anybody of respec table and decently amiable appearance may obtain a nice cat upon application. There are few ihirvgs, indeed, which the Cubans want that someone does not stand ready to give them. The Twentieth Century Club has begun an extensive col lection of pictures which are to illustrate for those who do not ccme on the excur sion the social and domestic life of Los Estados Unidos. The object of the collec tion Is admirable, but the results have in some cases verged closely on the ridicu lous. At heuseeleaning time it is so con venient to unload on some philanthropic scheme all ihe old things one may have no manner of use for! Still, the Cubans will reap in some measure the result of the Twentieth Contury Club's kindly fore sight, for many excellent photographs have been sent In, and these will accom pany the American cats on the return irip to Cuba. Among the excursions planned as an adjunct to the educational side of the visit have been numerous geological tramps to exceedingly uncomfortable places. The ladie* do not relish going these exhausting days on a long tiresome journey arranged for the express pur pose of contemplating for on hour a mound of day or a stony brook of which they say they can see plenty in Cuba. Still they are no shirks—these senoritas— and on the days that the excursions are planned they present themselves like the martyrs of old for the roast intot hat they’ know is in store for them. The principal objection to the excursion lies, however, in the fact that a greet deal of walking is not infrequently Involved and the Cu ban women are not used to walking and find the exercise little to their taste. So just now geological excursions is a ta booed topic in Cuban circles. It has been settled definitely’ that the Cubans will return to their homes by way of New York, and because of this there is to-day great rejoicing in Cambridge. The senoritas want to see the marvelous shops about which they have heard so much, and the men are doubtless more than anxious to get a glimpse of the far famed Bowery. Buffalo has already’ made arrangements to entertain some of the teachers, and the fund in New York is going up with n celerity most gratifying to those at this end. Our friend, Chi cago, is, however, somewhat disappoint ing. The original intention was to take the whole body of teachers to Washing ton and to the Windy’ City’; but. since Chicago has not come forward with the generosity for which all here have been waiting, this part of the excursion Is now considered impracticable. Tt is really a pity that the Cubans couldn’t have gone to Chicago—lf only to see how vastly in ferior the place is to this beautiful city r.n the Charles, and to her self-sufficient little neighbor, the modern Athens. All SIM OX CONGER’S CABLE. He Explains Europe’s Suspicions to Mulealaey. From the New York Commercial Ad vertiser. Ah Sin was eating hts noonday meal when Mulenhey got up and around to day. The Chinaman and his two as sistants had before them n heaped-up pan of smoking rice and a cup of tea each. Sin did not notice Mulcahey's en trance. neither did he acknowledge his salute. He filled his bowl with rice, raised it to his lips, then digging his chopsticks Into the white cereal, sent it flying Into his mouth—a marvelous stream, which flowed on until the Chinaman's throat was filled and his cheeks bulged. Mulcahey stood stock still to watch the performance. "Now. what'll ye do wit' It?” he asked, as Sin’s eyes bulged. , By way of answer, perhaps, Sin picked up his tea cHjp. drew the hot stuff Into his mouth and—down went all together. “Damfhe didn't do It!" said Mulcahey.

From the News and Courier. July 2G. Some months ago a special officer of the government, connected permanently with the army, came to Charleston and began to make inquiries about lands on Sulli van’s Island. The report then became current that the government wanted a great tract of land on the island for the purpose of building handsome and commo dious barracks. The rumor had It that the quarters were to be large enough for the accommodation of twelve batteries of artillery, with all necessary houses for of ficers, headquarters, buildings, parade grounds, etc. Sullivan’s Island property took a sudden rise anil especially in the neighborhood where It was supposed that the United States would wish to build or own. Some remarkable jumps in values were noted and all along the line It appeared that an impetus extraordinary had been given to real estate. The passage by the South Carolina Legislature of an act to give full possession to the government of lands ac quired from the holders gave the boom an impetus and It seemed that a balloon would be necessary for the next bidder. The government officer proceeded quiet ly’ on his work, howevf, and ee- Hired some options that were hot too far In ad vance on actual values. He also got of fers and made offers on ;i great deal more At the last session of Congress a bill was passed authorizing the expenditure of SIHS,- OCO fo-r the acquirement of suitable lands on Sullivan's Island for barracks, and some of those who had been wavering and inclined to accept the propositions made to them became firm in their demands, think ing, no doubt, that the appropriation was made with a wide margin and that they might just as well get every bit of the money from Uncle Bam as not. This idee of a margin was on error on the part of the speculators and It 1 quite possible that their actions may defeat the entire plans of the government in so far as bar racks at this post are concerned.
