displeased with the shoit number of
troops left at the Jacura and Moron

men to protect it.
Gen. Wcylcr is greatly pleased
with the capture of Gen. Rivera and

report. It was rumored on the
streets this morning that Gen. Hi-veil

Col. Hernandez, with insurccnl
forces, attacked l'ipiau, a town in the
Piovinco of Havana and, after a desperate
struggle with the garrison, they
took possession of the town, which
they ransacked and burnt. The insurgents
surpiiscd the Spaniards

on the outskirts of the town. A false
alarm of fire made Hie soldiers run

volley was Hied hy tho insurgents,
killing ten. The rest went back to
tho church, where they entienchcd
for defense. The Cubans then left
part of their forces attacking the
church, while tho rest entered the

Spanish loss was 2 1 killed, 20 wounded,

Howard of This City.
W. II. How-aid, the piano
man who lives on North Sixth street,
has perhaps the most wonderful cat
in the city. This morning a Six
representative was at Mr. Howard's
residence and while theic heard
something striking the keys of one of
tho several pianos that aro in the
hall. At tho request of Mr. Howard
the reporter stepped to the door of
the hall and there observed a cat
walking complacently back and forth
over the key board of a piano, apparently
enjoying the sounds thus
produced by Its feet. We were told
that it practiced this diveraion frequently.
Mr. Howard says he has
another cat that is even more remarkable
than this one. She strikes the
cords witli almost as much piccision
as lie cau himself.

Today has been livelier than ever
before on the streets. Tomorrow is
the day for the Democratic county
primary, nnd the candidates have
been everywhere today, nnd in
greater numbers than on any day
previous. Hroadwav has been crowd
ed and tho saloons were full as
well ns a good many who visited
them. Some of tho "bums" who have
heel) hanging nround town for the
past several davs are said not to hn
satisfied with drinking nnd smoking
at the expense of candidates, hut
many of them absolutely have the
nerve to demand money lo spend,
promising to secure votes by a
expenditure of it.
This morning considerable amuse-1
ment was created at Third nnd
llroadway by one of the candidates
buying several pecks of apples. One
of his lieutenants tossed them up in
the air and Jet the "bums" and yokels
After tho supply of apples was ex
hausted the peck measure was thrown 1
up lor tue sun unsatisfied populace
lo fight over.
Tonight everything will lie wide
open and red hot. there will be
barbecues and free lunches at several
of the saloons, and the candidates
ill of course drop iu during the festivities.
Tho saloons will all ilose at midnight
and remain closed until Saturday

Memphis, Tenn., April 1 Tim
Hood situation in the Mississippi Delta
above Greenville Is decidedly bet
ter tonight us to threatened loss of
life nnd further destruction to levees.
Tho half docn crovnsses on the Arkansas
ami Mississippi shores between
Helena and Grcauvillc have
drawn nn immense volume of water
out of tho main channel, which is
spreading itself over the lowlands,
but not rtith that degree
oi rapiuuy mat cuts oil
to tho Inhabitants of the
low countries. The river shows
a decline from n point below Helena
to the Wayside crevasse. The de
cline above Greenville in a ureal
many places Is as great ns ten inches.
However) Helena, Ark., is not out of
danger, for tho waters of the St.
rranels basin in Arkansas arc still
swelling tho channel of the main river
from the mouth of tho St. Francis to
a point south of Helena, ns no break
accurs until Wcstover is leached, ten
miles below that city. The worst at
Helena will be over by Sunday.
The damage to the farming coun
try in the Delta can not be exaggerated.
Five counties will be for the
most part under water for thirty
days, and the main line nnd branch
lines of the Yazoo and Mississippi
Valley road will have .mo.'e than one
hundred miles of liack inuudntcd.
upposne rcnusu'rcj the upper

St. Louis, April 2. The Hood situation

In this sectiou are no less than 3,000
