FRIDAY, JULY 15, 1S!>S.
Those misguided persons who have
been using more or less rhetoric in their
efforts to justify the Spanish soldiers
in their brutal practice of burning the
Cuban hospitals and massacring the
patients In them, are now having things
brought home to them in a vary prac?
tical manner. If there was any doubt
as to the character ,,f the men callable
of such deeds .as have been attribute, 1
to the hospital burners it is dispelled
by the action of th,- Spanish sharp?
shooters, who pick off surgeons anil de?
liberately kill w,,un,l.-,| soldiers carried
off tin- lid,I under the protection of the
Red Cross. War is bad enough with?
out accompaniment of savagery. It
would I,,- well for our soldiers at the
lion; to realize that they arc lighting
uncivilized barbarians, and while noth?
ing can justify them in following the
example of the Spanish brutes they
should give short shrift to any of the
"hospital sharpshooters" that may be
captured. 1: might not be out of plac e,
cither, tor the authorities of the United
States government to call the attention
of some ,?f Spain's European.con tompo
rarlea to this latest freak or Spanish
The humane an,! valorous Ex-Cap
laln General Weyler is having some
remarkable experience these days. At
one moment there is talk of arresting
him and placing him in durance vile,
and in the next he is mentioned as a
lit member lor the ministry that has
charge of the affairs of the Spanish
government. However the Spaniards
may decide to dispose of the honorable
gentleman, his fate* is of small mo?
ment to the American people. If he
should decide to come to Cuba and
malte some of Iiis boasts good, we have
no doubt that a number of the enthu?
siastic and straight shooting "Yankee
pigs" would be glad to meet him. On
I he other hand if he slays at home and
gels into the ministry, the worst enemy
of Spain could not wish that country
a greater misfortune.
No sensible man could expect to find
the Cuban soldiers as well equipped
and as efficient as Uncle Sam's sol?
diers. Yet some of the correspondents
who are now in Cuba seem to be much
surprised to find that they are not equal
to Uncle Sam's regular soldiers. It is
not safe, however, to judge soldiers by
outward appearances. The hypercriti?
cal gentlemen who are disposed to
make fun of the Cubans might turn to
history and read how the vainglorious
General Gates ridiculed Marion's brave
little band and then lied himself where
each one of the Swamp Fox's men
would have died in their tracks. Crit?
icism is all right/ where it is just, but
no man who allows prejudice to blind
his Judgment or loses sight of circum?
stances is qualified to pose as a critic.
Since experience is supposed to teach
even fool's a certain amount of wisdom
jt is difficult to understand why the
Americans are content to stand around
at Santiago and let the Spaniards talk
and palaver about surrendering. Ne?
gotiations having this end in view have
been going on for a woek or more. In
the meantime- yellow fever is gaining
a strong foothold in the American
carnp. There la only one sort of a de?
mand the Spaniards seem capable of
understanding and that Is the demand
that Is thundered from the braien
throat of the cannon. The Americans
have sufficient force to capture the
city. Let them go ahead and take
Santiago. The terms can then be de?
rided upon at leisure.

is one way of expressing a sense
of merriment, but the hot time
some house keepers have in
sweltering over hot ranges with
unsatisfactory fires, with wood,
coal, ashes, dirt and annoyance,
is it any wonder they look
weary and broken down ? But
with a modern gas range all this
trouble disappears. The range
win cook anything?it will do It
quickly. It will do its work bet?
ter and more satisfactory than
any coal range ever made. It
will heat water for the bath or
any purpose, and what Is more
the gas range Is the most econ?
omical cooker on the market.
Gas at $1.00 per thousand feet
is ten cents a hundred. An aver?
age family can cook three meals
daily with less than 100 feet ot
gas. Ask those using gas and
you will see. Those who have
Just found out the benefits are
most enthusiastic. We have
known It so long we wonder
why every body don't see it as
we do, but they will soon see it.
We are setting ranges every
day, and every range set brings
along another sounder of its
praisos. Call and see us.
