If it is fair to judge by his tricky at?
tempts to delay the termination of the

the unusual demanils upon my timi-.
The- present war has certainly served
ono very useful purpose in coniplcte'y
obliterating tho sectional lines drawn
in the last one. Tho rospouso to thc
nation's call to anns has been equally
spontaneous aud patriotic in all paris
ol tho countiy.
Veterans of tho gray as well as the

ning equal honor and renown. Their
brave eleeels and tho unequalled tri?
umphs ol our army and navy havo re?
ceived the gratitude of tho people of

To havo such hearty coinmendation
from "yourself and your solleugues of
the work of this administration iu thc
conduct of the war, nml tho pledge of

TOOK PICTURES AS HE FOUGHT
New Torie, July 23.?A staff corre?
spondent of the Prof-s, writing from
Siboney, gives an account of a peculiar
feat performed by Lieutenant Hugh S.
Wise, son of John S. Wise, of New
York, and formerly of Virginia. Lieu?
tenant Wise was among those who
charged up tbe hill at San Juan,
The correspondent of the Press'says:
"He charged up the hill at tho head of
his company in tho face of Mauser
bullet?, thick as hail and with shrapnel
shells bursting all around him, and
carried in his right hand his sword and
in his left a rapid-filing camera of his
own de.icc. He took twelve views on
his film plates whilo he was running
and when ho and thc standing remnant
of his company wero in possession at
the top of the hill, and the Spaniards
were flying down the other, Lieutenant
Wise turned to a sergeant and said:
"I think I got some pretty lively pic?
tures this time. If there was only
bodbo ice in this sonburrol country I'd
3evelop them right now."
"Then he gave bia camera to a pri?
vate lo guard and resumed fighting.
If that isn't bravery, coolness, nerve
and aualacity combined, I never nt ard
:>f them. And everybody who knows
bi will say that it was 'just like Hughey
