A CHANCE FOR STAMP-COLLECTORS.

A CHANCE FOR STAMP-COLLECTORS. The stamp-collecting enthusiast should be on the alert to secure early specimens of the postage-stamps of the Republic of Cuba. It is true that as the Cuban Republic is not yet definitely constituted, or accepted into the fraternity of legitimate States, its postage-stamps do not enjoy at present a recognised international currency. A correspondent, however, assures the Westminster Gazette that they are ready for circulation all over the world. They have been printed, as might perhaps be expected, in the United State3. The postage-stamp of the Cuban Republic (in spe) is tall and narrow. In the centre there is an oval space containing the upstanding banner of the new Commonwealth. (The banner, by the way, is blue, with two white stripes, between which is a white star in a red triangle.) Above the picture of the banner are inscribed the words "Republica de Cuba," and below it Cuba Libre." The colour of the central oval differs according to the value of the stamp. The 1-centavo stamp is orange-yellow, the 5-centavos green, the 10-oentavos blue, and the 20-centavoq black.

A CURIOUS SPECTACLE.
