Tho whole country Is one vast plain

should sny that the whole country Is

having only suffered from tho nttlllory

were about 30,000 of them here, all

were well educated and jpoko, English
I never saw one of them drunk, and

Well best-t'iulpped army of

Nearly all the English troops here wero
foreign or Indian soldiers und u regl
ment of Chinese soldiers from Hong'
kong. They have everything that un
army rould possibly w int for e-ase and
comfort Tho Indian Hoops or filhks.
ns they were called v.mo white unl
forms and a cap made out of n strip of
cloth about twenty yaiils long, which
they dextcrlously wound around their
heads In such n manner that It tapered
up to a peak. Their trousers wero very
baggy, 'In fact, they were large
enough for twenty men, nnd their
blouses were built In tne same manner
They nil wore huge whiskers that re
minds one of Patrlnrchlal clas, und
each ono carried, besides lila gun, u
long, sharp lance that nad a poisoned
head, nnd with the tin owing of which
they nre expert. The) have Indian
coolies to do nil their work, even to
cleaning their fighting implement, for
they consider It a dljgracc to work,
In battle they nre bravo if their white'
officers go in the lead, but no good
after their officers are killed.
They are the worst thieves and loot
era I have ever seen and the most
scheming traders la the. world. They
would dig up the dead and carry nway
the rich silken shrouds of the dead
They would even steal money and Jew.
clry from ono pocket rf their compan
ion's trousers and place It In another,
They soldier for no pay, and ovm buy
their way Into thn army. They make
their money by looting and bartering,
Thero were 10.000 of them here und
they ull had plenty of money. They
thought well of us and spent money
freely treating us, but If any of us hap
pencil to touch any of their food they
would throw It uwuy, as they look upon
nil not of I hell faith us heathens. Yet
they would bathe In a vessel of wuter

here In abundance and of the finest

no money they had nothing to eat but
grass-hoppers, which they fried In
grease, and often I have seen thnn
eaten alive. Eggs were worth 50c per
100, nnd chickens $1 per down. Sweet
potatoes grew ns large as a bucket olid
sold for 50c per 100 pound, snd fruits,
the like of which I have never seen,
were worth but a trifle, but the poor

Bueh Is Chlip a land of vice nud

Never again do I want to see the

Hut all things have an ending, hence
our stay In China came to nn end on
the 1st of November when we got on
lighters flfid floated down the (rooked,
muddy Pelho to Pongku, passing ruin
ed (owns mid deserted homes and many
a gruesome corpse floating In the
river. Wo finally reached the transport
Sumner nnd sailed nwny for Nagasaki,
which place we readied on November
Nth, nnd learned that Mr. MeKlnley
had been re-elected We soon sailed
away for Manila, nud on tho way we
ran Into a fierce typhoon that tossed us
about ot Its mercy for twenty-four
hours. Hugo green waves rushed upon
us, and tho whole ship was drenched
with tons and tons of water. Koine,
times we wercstandlng on our hiuda.
and all of us thought that "Davy
Jones" would get us, but our good ship
rode out the storm snd wo got to Ma
nllu In safely on the 20th day of No
vember, We stayed In Manila four days
and then camo to Blusn, and here we
nre still anchored In this beautiful city
011 the shores of the beautiful Eaguns,
de Bay l.ala, where the palm ever
waves, the birds ever sing, soft breezes
ever blow nnd the hum of insects waft
their sweet notes on the wings of
darkness to lull us to quiet slumber.

Sometimes we go out fu the night and
capture u few (Tugoos nnd some rifles,
but that is ull, Tho natives are fast ac

there will be no more fighting here at
