WlkofTs column struck a zono of prtl

of tho brlgado, gray haired Llscum of

Offlcor Toyman of tho Twenty-fourth

In tho van of tho column tho Thir
teenth regiment, led by Colonel Worth
ns far ns "Hull's Crossing, "climbed up
tho bank and went through tho wire
fctico, whcr gaps had already been
mado. Major Kills wns at Its head, but
was boon shot down. Thcro wns au open
field stretching nway up to tho Mock
Iioueo. This regiment had lost heavily
at tho crossing, particularly by Spanish
shrapnel, but moved rcslstlcssly on uii'
til a galling volley flro compelled It to
seek shelter under a bank somo hundred
yards from tho fort.
Tho Ninth regiment, on the left cf
thu Thirteenth, pas.-cd tho ordeal nt tho
crossing with but llttlo Iom. In climb
ing tho bank It wns struck by u heavy
Mnnscr flic from San Jtinn heights nml

I'ressingoti in Una with thpThirttiuth,
tho regiment halted nt thu bank nnd de
livered its flro upon tho Spaniards in

When tho Twenty-fourth regiment of
blacks appeared in vlow nbovn tho crest
of tho river ban!:, thu Spaniards ap
parently turned all their flro upon them,
hoping, ns they said after waul, to do
mnrullzo thorn und prccipitatu a panic.
Thu blacks didn't tearc, Lcvcvcr.
fust how long theso men hnltod nt tho

of the infantry fight wai about coinci

hill by tho cavnlty, wl ieh hnn already
been described, and tool: plarn probably
between 13:30 und 1 o'clock. Mean
whilo Grimes' buttery, no longer ham
pered by tho balloon, was vigorously
shelling tho blockhouso and trenches, as
was also Fnrkhurst's battery, Second
artillery, whicli had taken position to
tho loft nnd front, -fit Grimes, near VI
Poso. Tho Kucccsi of tho cavnlty in
clearing "Kettlo" hill, really nit nd
vanced position of tho Spanish lino, had
allowed tho Hotchkiss guns und Parker's
Gatllngs to cross Sau Juan rlvor at tho
ford of tho main road and get to high
ground on tho southern slopo of the hill.
Parker's advent upon thu eccuo marked
a crisis in tho attack. Ho had thrco
guns with him und opened them all
upon thu blockhouso which Captain
Houghton of tho Third cavalry pointed
out to him. Grimes and Parkhurst, bo it
remembered, wero pouring in their
shells, but thu Spanish fire did uot abate.
Starting with a low ruto of speed,
Parkor gradually turned his guns up to
thoir highest rapacity, nnd in tho space
of ten inluufeu, thu muzzlos of tho guns
sweeping gradually along thu Spanish
lunches, sifted 120,000 bullets into tho

Dut all this tlmo uoither tho cavalry
