a. June LS.-Tuesday forenoon via
Kingston, Jamaica. 12:30 P. M.?The
\nietican front has been advanced be

nU a half miles from the Spanish en
General Lawton's brigade rests

[he right flank. General Wheeler,
with the cavalry, is In the rear between
ilia Hills and the Rio Quanta.
A strong line of outposts Is main?
General OhalTce was skirmishing to
ward tie- city this morning. The Cu
,ans had several slight skirmishes with
the Spaniards stationed on the hills,
?ml our auxiliaries occupied the block
hmisos in the vicinity which were
?vacnated before daybreak by the
Spaniards. The latter retreated toward
Santiairo de Cuba.
Mm h information has been obtained
from Spanish paelflcos. who have slip
i cr| out of the city and given them
. tcs op In the hope of getting food.
They rcnort great starvation and dls
ti-ers In Santiago. They say the Span
lards are on half rations.
There arc two forts of considerable
Importance within the Spanish lines.
Punta Blanco, at the southern end of
the bay. and Santa Ursula, at the
'ui the road to Canev. on the north.
Is another fort.
There arc about forty-five men in
? acb of these fortifications, and stretch?
ing among the whole city are nine
barbed wire fences, fifty yards apart,
while just inside these are lines of rifle
pits. Outside to the eastward, about
live miles beyond the American out
Tiosts Is a line of entrenchments, ex
tendlng from tin- northern extremity
..f tie-- city to Morro Castle.
A little west or south, at a distance of
about seven miles from General Law
ton's headquarters, lies Morro (.'astir.
The road to within a few hundred
yards of the batteries at the rear of
Morro was rccoiinoitered yesterday af?
ternoon by General Chaffee. and sev?
eral members of bis staff.
The Cubans believe that if the water
?in,ply of tin- city is cut off. Santiago
w ill have to yield at once.
No aggressive move by the Ameri?
cans is anticipated for several days.
The roads to Ihe base of supplies must
be greatly Improved before the onward
neve.id .an he safely made. At
iiresent ii taxes the quartermaster's de?
partment to tin- utmost to get provis?
ions and ammunition. Last night one
pack train arrived with supplies suf?
ficient to last until tonight, and as this
dispatch is being written another train
of ammunition Is coming in. A train
of ammunition has reached General
Charfep's brigade, and a big Catling
gun and dynamite guns, nttached to
this brigade, have been well supplied.
There were no alarms last night.
Many of our officers are amazed, ns
they have looked for resistance to our
advance. The ground over which they
have (raveled could have easily been
defended, but the Spanish have stead?
ily retired, not even attempting to
harrass our outposts.
Apparently General Lineras prefers
to place faith in the defense of the
citv. and intends to make a "last ditch
fight" of it.

The Americans are in excellent spirits
and there is a remarkable lack of sick?
ness. Thus far the water supply has

effects from the changes except a few
cases of dysentery.

mantic origin: W hen tbe Indians were
in possession of Eatnapo Valley one of
their village.-; was located where the
Turner farm is situated. The daughter
of the chief was loved by a warrior,
and as the old chief did not favor the
suit the maiden met her lover In secret.
When her father discovered this the
lovers lied to escape his wrath, but
were overtaken by the chief, who bade
his daughter return to the wigwam.
This she refused to do. and stepped to
her lover's side, at which the chief was
so incensed tlutL he drew his bow and
sent an arrow to her heart. She ex?
pired on the spot, where a wild apple
tree was sprouting, ami her life's blood
saturated its roots of the young tree.
Stielt is the story that has been
handed down from generation to gen?

the original "Indian Princess" and the
