A Case of
An Officer of the Cuban
War Who Died Comes
By EUGENE WHITING
The Spnnlsh-Amerk-un war wns pncl
rd, and the troops hod been removed
from Snntlngo on transports. A few
Invalids remained who were too III to
travel, under the care of Surpeou Ed
wnrd FerReaon, who Rtnyed behind for
the purpose of cnrltiK for tl:etu und
settling up the nffHlr of the medical
department of the army. A punboat
under command of Ensign While of
the navy had been ordered to remain
for the purpose of bringing away those
who needed transportation when vvery
thlng had been cleaned tip. when the
who were to die had died-nml thoe
who were to get well were able to bp
carried aboard Fthlp.
Now, the Santiago campaign wns
something to be heartily sick of. and
after it was over to be left In the pars
ed plaee to clean up was worse yet.
Ensign White was a bad selection for
the purpose, for his fiancee was waitiug

for him to come home to marry her,
and he was in a terrible hurry to ac
commodate her. lie bad taken care
of everything there was to do. and
nothing remained except to bring
home those left in hospital. Calling on
Surgeon Fergeson, he asked him the
condition of things In his department.
"There are two men who can't live
twenty-four hours. As soon as they
are dead we can get out of this beast
ly country and go home."
"Are you sure they're both going to
die?" asked White.
"They've both got the fever, and I
can't see any chance for either of
them. There's Lieutenant Berkeley of
the th New Jersey as good as dead.
tTho other one Is Sergeant Moore of
the th Massachusetts. He's not quite
so bad as Berkeley, but there's no show
"I say, old man," said White thought
fully, "we're both anxious to go home.
Now, you wouldn't mind having things
ready to bury these fellows,- would
you, just as Boon as they are dead?"
Fergeson shrugged his shoulders and
made no reply, but silence gives con
sent, and White knew that when the
Invalids' souls had left their bodies
there would be no necessity for wast
ing time as to the Interment.
The gunboat had steam up, ready for
departure, and Surgeon Fergeson was
busy over some papers, while his strik
er was packing his belongings. A hos
pital steward came Into nls tent and
"Doctor, one of those cases Is dead,
and the other has disappeared."
The surgeon uttered an exclamation
of impatience. He had expected to get
ofT within an hour, and here was a com
plication that might cause no end of
"TIow the dickens can a man at the
point of death disappear?" he asked
"You go hunt for him and let me
know which man has died. I suppose
It Is Berkeley. White Is crnz.v to be
off. ami if rut not on hand at the min
ute I'm afrnid lie'll go without me."
Half nn hr Inter the steward came
back and renorted that the missing
mnn hnd not been found and the dead
man wns Perkeley. Fergeson was so
sure that Berkeley would not live that
he did nut question the man In the
matter, especially as he was about
stepping Into an ambulance to take him
to the shore, where a boat was waiting
for him to put him on board the ship.
He told the steward to we thot the
lieutenant bad a decent burial and
made a mental note to put the de
ceased's name down on the dead list as
soon as he honrded the gnnhnat.
All these persous were young. Fer
geson wan nn assistant surgeon, hold
ing only the grade of first lieutenant.
White wag but an enslgu, graduated a
few days before the breaking out of
the war at the Naval academ;,. Berke
ley, who was reported dead, was but
twenty-three years old and the hos
pital steward not much his senior. To
the youth of the persons concerned Is
due the want of care In the matter that
has been mentioned. Youngsters are
not to be trusted as older officers, who
would not have been likely to hurry
away from the duties committed to
Uielr care, leaving one sick man roam
ing no one knew where and another to
be burled without making sure as to
who be was.
From the time that Burgeon Ferge
son entered the name of Lieutenant
Berkeley on his death roll he thought
no more of him. He. worried about
Sergeant Moore, whoBe disappearance
the hospital steward had reported,
fearing that, since the man had been
in his charge, something might turn
up to bring out his failure to remain
in Cuba and discover what had be
come of him. But as for Berkeley, he
was safe underground and could not
In anyway stir np the army regula
tions against the doctor.
Five years after the Spanlsh-Ameri-:an
war a party of young persons was
making merry together at Fort Mon
roe. One of the young ladles, Miss'
Julia Hulet, was receiving some at
tention from a young officer, Captain
John Foster, who had been promoted
from the ranks, or, rather, Captain
Foster, was offering his attentions,
which Miss Hulet was chary of ac
cepting. Since It waa near the hour for dress
parade, one of the party proposed that
they go into the fort and see the cere
mony. As they moved along a gentle
man joined Miss Hulet, who seemed
very much pleased to meet him. She
introduced him to her friends as Mr.
On hearing the name Captain Foster
looked fixedly upon Berkeley as
though trying to recall some memory
concerning him. From the moment
of the latter's arrival he devoted him
self to Miss Hulet, who received his
attentions graciously, evidently to the
annoyance of Captain Foster. The
Stynntsh-Amerlcan war was mentioned,
and Berkeley spoke of having partici
pated In the affair.
"Beg your pardon, Mr. Berkeley,"
Foster spoke up; "with what corps did
you serve in Cuba?"
"The th New Jersey Infantry."
"There wav a Lieutenant Berkeley
of that regiment, but he died In Cuba."
"I was the only Lieutenant Berkeley
in the regiment," replied the other,
"and I did not die In Cuba." The
words were spoken sharply since Fos
ter had implied that Berkeley was
passing under false colors.
"I'm sorry to differ from yon as to
Lieutenant Berkeley's death," said Fos
ter insultingly. "I know for a fact
that Lieutenant Berkeley of the th
New Jersey died In Cuba. The reason
I know It Is that I came home with
tho last departures from Santiago, and
Surgeon Fergeson, who was with us,
spoke of Berkeley's death, regretting
that he was unable to remain In Cuba
to attend to the officer's burial."
"I will call upon you tomorrow," re
plied the man who claimed to be
Berkeley, "and will convince you that
Mr. Berkeley la alive and very much
This ended any further reference to
the matter at the time, but there was
not a person In the party who did not
think about it Intently. Miss Hulet
was the one principally affected by It
and during the time the party were
witnessing the parade she showed by
her manner that she took sides with
Mr. Berkeley, being especially gracious
to him and cool to Captain Foster.
After the parado was finished and the
party were walking toward the hotels
Berkeley stopped to speak to an officer
whom he had met In Cuba.
"Who Is this Captain Foster? asked
"He was a hospital steward during
the war. After it was over, through
Influence at Washington," he received
an appointment as lieutenant in the
regular army. He has recently been
promoted to be captain."
That was enough for Berkeley. The
same evening when a party were gath
ered in the principal hotel, Foster and
Berkeley being present, Berkeley said:
"Captain Foster, do yon remember
going Into a ward in a hospital In San
tiago where two men were supposed to
be suffering with fever?" " -
Foster started, but made no reply.
"I had been In that ward at the point
of death, but in the gray of the morn
ing the fever left me, and I craved
water. I got up to go for it. Where
I went 1 don't know, but a few days
later I found myself In a Cuban hut,
not knowing how I got there. I learn
ed long afterward that a hospital stew
ard had reported me dead and that the
other inuh, a sergeant In a cot beside
me, bad been buried under my name.
"After my return to the north It be
came necessary to prove my Identity,
which I did to the satisfaction of a
court. But I believe that to the pres
eut day I am on the rolls of the dead
of the army at Santiago."
While Mr. Berkeley was making this
statement Miss Hulet kept her eyes
fixed on Captain Foster. When Berke
ley finished Foster stammered some
thing about an "unlikely story," then
turned and began to talk incoherently
with one of the young ladles of the
party. Miss Hulet, with a look of
contempt at him, walked away with
Xbus ended an episode due to the
hurry of two officers to get away from
a benighted land, one of whom was
eager to meet his fiancee and the other
to avoid being left behind. The third
man the hospital steward was doubt
less too lazy to make certain as to the
IdenUty of a dead man.
Nevertheless the saying "murder will
out" Is true In less Important matters.
The story that has been given here
was repeated In the army, and Foster
was finally called to account for a de
linquency of Beveral years before. Sur
geon Fergeson was involved, and both
officers after an Investigation were
