Tl'.OS. J. ADAMS,.EDITOR
WEDNESDAY, JULY 27.
The present war has astonished
the world with the indubitable
fact that these United States are
the most powerful in numbers and
resources of all the nations of
.arth. Combined with England
the balance of creation couldu't
hold us a candle in war or in peace.
'? It is reported, says Washington
correspondent of the New York
Times, that Admiral Sampson will
be detached from the command at
Santiago and put in charge of the
eastern squadron, leaving Com
modore Watson to take his place.
Dr. Wm. H. Whitsett, the
President ot the Baptist The
ological Seminary at Louisville,
Ky., has tendeied his resigna
tion, to take effect at the close of
the next session in May, does this
in the interest of peace because of
the controversey that has been
waged over certain points of
church history held by him.
The separate coach or Jim Crow
car bill goes into operation on the
first day of September next. Some
of the railroads may do a little
kicking, but the majority of them
will idll gracefully into line and
obey the behests of the people.
Our own road, the Southern, (we
live on a live lino now), has al
ready made preparations for riding
white folkp and niggers in differ
ent coaches, but both in first class
"Gen. Merritt.'' says one of the
soldier b>ys in San Francisco,
"does not put on.as much style as
some of the militia captains.
When he came to leave on his
ship, the Newport, the other day,
he did not even take a carriage
from his hotel to the dock but
climbed on a street car and paid a
a nickel for the ride. After he got
on board he waved off all those who
were trying to make a great
ceremony out of his departure,
and said to the steamer captain :
'Come on ; let's get out of thi?V
Then he waved his handkerchief
to some good-looking women on
the dock and went into his cabin
to unpack his grip."
Watterson's "Wider View."
Editor Henry Watterson is fired
with the ambition for territorial
expansion and with his usual
picturesque vigor in advocacy of
that departure to which, in spite
of the strong arguments against it,
and by the force of circumstances
possicly, we are evidently tend
ing. In a recent editorial he says :
"If Louisiana, why not Texas?
If Texas, why not California? And,
with Texas, California, and Hawaii
why not Cuba, Porto Rico, and the
Philipines? We are 80,000,000 of
energetic, aspiring, ambitious
Americans. Presently we shall
be 150,000,000,. Can any thought
ful man believe that this tremen
dous force may be isolatod from
the movements of mankind and
fed on sowens like their grand
fathers of the revolution? As well
might one look to see them return
to kneebreeches and ruined shirts,
and, in place of the battleships, to
send the start and stripes to sea
upon a mizzenmast a little elevated
over a birch canoe.
The Spanish war was not ex
pected or desired, but impelled by
hands invisible, it was upon us
before we knew it, and it will leave
us a pretty bag to hold. Shall we
rip this bag open and empty its
contents, or shall we adjust our
selves to them and, so adjusting
ourselves, administer the obliga
tions they will impose the best we
"But even if we should wish to
escape them, how can we? We
shall havo to reckon with the
armies which have won them. Is
it nothing to have set such armies
in the field? We shall have to
reckon with the commerce of the
country, always enlarging, and
seeking outlets. Is it nothing to
add $10,000,000 or $12,000,000 to
the free trace area of America?
We shall have to reckon with the
rekindled pride oi the nation. Is
it nothing to compel the respect of
other nations? We cannot sink
our ships and extinguish our navy.
Nor can we relegate ourselves to
the rear of the advancing column
of civilization which is moving be
yond our own borders. Already
?we are grown too etrong to be let
alone in case we seek the isolation
of which we hear so much, and he
who thinks we have no duties be

except to grow rich and fat, and so
to mortify withal, recks little

Kong, July 24.-The regiment of
Colorado's troops forming a part
of General Greene's command ha?
been removed from the transport
China, in which it made its journey
from San Franciso, to the newly
formed American camp near
Malate. There it confronts the
last Spanish outpost which blocks
the entrance to Manila from the
south and which has long resisted
the onslaughts of the insurgents.
The remaining troops of the last
detachment will be taken from
the transports as rapidly as possi
ble to positions around Manila
preparatory to a concerted attack
on the city by Admiral Dewey's
fleet and the American land
Since the~news was received here
of the destruction of Admiral
Cervera's fleet at Santiago and of
the return of Admiral Camara's
ships to Spain, the present time
has been considered the best for a
movement on Manila to compel its
surrender. Conferences have been
held by Admiral Dewey with
Generals Anderson and Greene,
and a plan has been outlined lor
the capture and occupation of the
cit}- which has the approval of
those commanders. Recent visits
of the British consul to the
flagship Olympia indicate that a
final demand for the surrender
of the Spanish garrison is con
templated, the British consul
acting as mediator between the
Americans and the Spanish
authorities. Most of the troops
now in camp at Cavite will be
advanced at once t} the front to
take part in the important work in
Dispatches from Washinton are
expected tomorrow, and these are
likely to decide as to the program
to be carried out.
The Spanish soldiers in Manila
are being deceived by the war
council, which has charge of the
city's defences. They expected
Camara's fleet to arrive July 15,
and now they are looking for it to
appear at any moment and give
batle in the bay to the ships of
There is great activity among
the insurgents, and it is evident
that General Aguinaldo desires if
possible to take Manila before the
Americans move against the city,
and thus increase greatly his
claims for consideration. In a
battle at Malate on the 16th. inst,
the insurgents suffered a loss
of lo killed. The Spanish soldiers
made a desperate sortie and gain

The German cruiser Cormoran
is expected to return soon with

may further complicate it.
A DREAM WARNING.
An Incident Related by Mr.
Wallace G. Addison.
Mr. Wallace G. Addison, has
just returned from a trip north
and east and he is relating a story
that is indeed interesting.
Mr. Addison, on hiB way south,
stopped over a few days in
Philadelphia, and while there call
ed on friends. He learned that it
was by a strange coincidence that
they were in the city when he call
ed, and indeed had things gone
as they at first intended they may
have been drowned when the
steamer LaBourgogne was sunk by
The gentleman and his wife had
intended taking a trip to Europe
for the summer, and had engaged
passage on the steamer which off
the banks met so horrible a fate.
Three days before they were to
leave for New York to go aboard
she told her husband that she could
not sail on the Bourgogne.
The uight before she had a dream
and in it she saw a terrible disaster.
The ship was in collision. She
saw the decks crowded with frantic
people and saw men fighting the
women and children back from
theboats. She declared that she
would not leave home. The lady
was aimost in a fit of nervous
prostration and it was necessary to
send for a physician.
She gjt better, but refused to
make the voyage. Her husband
went to New York and cancelled
the booking.-Augusta Chronicle,
HE HAD TO GO.
"If 1 should go to war," be cried.
"And mingle in the fray,
I fear that some one else might come
And win your heart away.
'Tis not that I lack courage, love,
Believe me, but that fear
Of being robbed of yon, sweetheart.
That makes me linger here."
''Then put your fear away," she said.
"And go and get your gun
Go, mingle in the fray and help
To make the Spaniards run ;
I've formed a resolution, and
I'll tell it unto thee
I want to be a warrior's love,
No stay at home forme.'"
Important to Depositors,
Congressman Fleming seems
always to have his eyes open to
the interests of the people and the
public conveninence cud has
secured a ruling from the retinue
department on one point in the
tax act that will prove of wide
spread importance and benefit.
In a letter to his brother, who is
president of the Commercial bank
in this city, Congressman Fleming
sends the ruling referred to, and
it will be received with pleasure
not only by the banks here but
elswhere, and by the army of
depositors who are worried at hav
ing to affix a stamp every time
they desire to draw a few dollars
out of bank for their own use.
Here is the ruling by the depart
"If a bank takes money on
deposit, and pays it out in partial
payments to a depositor upon his
signing a receipt (coutaining no
words constituting an order for
the payment of money) it does not
require a stamp under this act. '
The effect of this ruling is to
enable depositors to go to bank
and sigu a receipt for any 6um
they desire paid over to them from
their deposit account and be reliev
ed of the uecessity of stamping the
receipt. This does not refer of
course to checks issued to a third
party. These are negotiable
papers and mvst be stamped.
Let us illustate. Suppose A has
money in bank and owes a number
of small accouuls that he is
accustomed to pay on a certain
day in each mouth. If he payB
off Tom, Dick, and Harry with
cheeks when they come in to pre
sent their accounts he must put a
stamp upon each check. If, how
ever, he steps over to the bank in
advance and draws out a suffcient
sum from his deposit to settle all
these accounts he can give the
bank a receipt for the sum, with
out a stamp on it, and carry the
money to his office where he can
pay the accounts of Tom, Dick and
Harry in cash.-Augusta Chroni
Molly Obeyed Orders.
In his Fourth of July oration at
Spartanburg, S. C., Senator Mc
Laurin interpolated this :
Senator Bate of Tennessee told
me an aneodote of Col. Tom
Sumter that I have never seen in
print. Sumter was a great, big,
giant of a fellow,'with a voice like
a foghorn. It is said his "holler"
could be heard for miles. On one
occasion when he was off on a
foray the Tories came and captured
his wife, Molly, and stripped the
plantation of everything. When
"Old Tom" came home and found
"Molly" gone his rage knew no
bounds. Gathering together such
forces as he could he put after
He overtook them on the third
day and hung about until midnight.
Then he deployed his forces around
the camp and told them to await
his orders to fire. He was afraid
of "Molly" being shot in the melee,
so when he got everything ready
he opened his big mouth and let
out a yell that fairly made the earth
tremble. "Lay down, Molly ! Lay
down, Molly," and Moily, recogniz
ing those stentorian tones, fell
prone on her face, and, after the
last, "Lay down, Molly," came the
command fire and charge. Molly
was re-captured w:thout hurt.

MILES HAS ARRIVED
AT PORTO RICO.
No Word Has Been Received
From Him Yet.
Washington, July 25.-While it
is known that Gen. Miles has
arrived in Porto Rican waters,
nothing has been heard directly
from him and the department
cannot announce whether or not
he has commenced a landing.
Un?esa he meets the enemy in
great force he will make a landing
as quickly as possible. To keep

Judging" a Cow.
Andrew J. Fuller in th9 In
dependent gives the following!
points to be observed in the)
selection of a cow;
The model cow should have a |
small, clean, rather long head,
tapering toward the muzzle.
The mouth should be large and
bioad, the eye bright aud spark
ling, but placid in expression with
no indication of wildness. The
horus should be small, short,
tapering, yellowish and glistening.
The neck should be small, thin
and tapering toward the head, but
thickening when it approaches the
fhoulders; the dewlaps small.]
The fore-quarters small when
compared with the hind-quarters.
The barrel large. Each rib
should project further than the
preceeding one up * to the loins.
She should be well formed across
the rib3 and in the rump. The
spine, or backbone should be
straight and long, the udder large
in propo.tionto the size of the
animal, and the skin thin with
soft, loose folds extending well
back, the milk veins, especially
those under the belly, should be
large and prominent.
After selecting a good cow make
the most ot her. A French writer
says that by inducing cows to
drink more water the quantity of
milk yielded can be increased
without injuring the quality.
He asserts that the amount of
milk is proportional to the amount
of water drunk. In experimenting
with cows fed in the stall with dry
fodder, that gave only nine to
twelve quarts of milk a day, that |
when this dry food was moistened
with from 18 to 23 quarts of water
daily, their yield of milk increased
up to 12 to 14 quarts a day.
Besides this water taken with the
food, the cows were allowed to
drink the aame aB before, >nd their
thirst was excited by adding a
little salt to the fodder. The milk
was of good quality and the
amount of butter saisfactory. He
found, by a series of observations,
that the quantity of water
habitually drunk by each cow was
a criterion to judge of the quantity
of milk that she would yield. A
cow that does not drink as much
as 27 quarts of water a day, is a
poor milker, giving only five and
a half to seven quarts a day ; but
all the cows which drank as much
as fifty quarts of water daily gave
from 14 to 23 quarts of milk daiy.
He believes the amount of water
drunk by a cow is a test of her
value as milker.
"Wheeler at Santiago.
"Gen. Wheeler started on the
two miles' journey to the front in
au ambulance. About half way to
the front be met rome litters
bearing wounded. The veteran,
against the protest of the surgeons,
immediately ordered his horse,

wounded into the ambulance,
mounted and rode onward.

well as in other, lousiness transactions. Nearly all life insurance poli
cies are contracts for a period of twenty years. They are made so by
insurance companies to supply the the needs of the insuring public.
When a man takes a whole-life, twenty payment life or twenty-year
bond, he considers its cost to him during twenty years, and the settle
ment which he can make at the md of twenty years. Experience ?nd
statistics prove that only a small percentage of policies are continued
longer thau the twenty-year period.
Men take on large line3 of insurance from age 30 to 40. The en
suing twenty years cover the period when their families are growing
up and beiug^educated ; it also covers the period of their greatest busi
ness activity. It covers the time when their families and business in
terests require^the greatest amount of protection.
A man's requirements are not the same at 60 years that they are
at 40 years. His family has grown up, his business conditions have
changed, or the necessity for insurance has disappeared.
In view of these facts, The Provident Savings issues a policy at a
fixed rate for twenty years, which includes only the cost of protection
for that time. The premiums on this policy are less than ont-half the
premiums charged for a twenty-payment life. If a man wants insur
ance for proteciion only, this policy will supply his wants admirably.
He is not obliged to make a deposit with an insurance company for a
future which he may never reach ; especially when he has need for
this deposit, and more, too, in his business.
To illustrate this Policy, we will give the figures. A man at 30
takes one of these Policies for $1,000 at the regular term rates of $14.91
per annum for twenty years. This policy can be continued, after
twenty years, without medical re-examination, at rates for the age
