Admiral Dewey is receiving hundreds
of lettors, balos of nowspaper clippings,
invitations to "Dewey days," copies of
Dowey songs nnd Dewey poetry and a
good many cablegrams, says tho Cavlto
correspondent of tho Chicago Record.

Ono ninu writes; "Dowey, you aro n
peach. I'll stick to yon till freezes
over, aud thou I'll stick to you on the
ice." Another ndvisos him to keep his
health until 1000. A picco of poetry
has come from tho Topoka Capital,
which starts out with "Dowoy was tho
morning and Dowoy was tho man,"
and follows this brilliant lino with
others of tho samo sort. Tho song
"What Did Dowey Do to Thorn?" has
nrrived, nud if tho muslo comes the
song ought to have u good run out
in Manila bay. Tho other versions,
"How Did Dowoy Do It?" nud "Dow
oy's Duty Done," hnvo not mado their
appearance, but thoy nro undoubtedly
on tho way.
A cartoon printed by n San Francisco
papor, entitled "Dowoy Smoko? Yes,
Manilas, " amused tho admiral n good
deal. Every mail brings new ovideucos
of tho popular enthusiasm that has
sprung up in America over him.
What pleased him moro than any
thing olso was nu account of how his
sou received tho news of thu great vic

tho battle of Manila bay waB tho most

particularly gratifying to him also,

Through nil this bombardment of

doing anything wonderful. Tho most
