vegetables and bananas and other

They enlisted for a better purpose
than to be used as murdering tools.
They also agreed on the point that
if every commissioned officer's pay
had been only a littls above the pri
vitos there would never have been a

thought the war would not last very
long if every American voter could

THE WAR FOR CHBfJTIAKITT.
Private Charles E Bite writes the
Marshall :Minn ) Ledger as follows:
"There is perhaps in this world no
sadder sight than a desecated church
and here the sight is before our
eyes. The altars are overturned,the
images of the saints shattered and
scattered, and every particle of val
ne stripp? ?I from the sacred edifice.
As we name in a sailor was behead?
ing J hn the Baptist with a band
siw, while another tried to separate
tho bead of a cLerub from a group of
tbe holy family. Besides those shat?
tered figures of the saints there was
nothing in tbe cburcb. Even tbe
confessionals bad been stripped of
their carvings. Tbe very paving
bad been torn from the floor beneath
and searched for bidden treasure. "
AS ANTI EXPANSIONIST.
Dick Mill? writes from Manila in a
letter published last week in the
"I hope tbey will let us go home
when tbey (tbe regular*) get here, as
tbey said tbey intended to do but I
hardly think we'll leave here for
some time, as tbe United States
seems bent on holding the islands in
spite of all tbe kicking the natives
"I supposa you know by this time
that I am an anti-expansionist."
Major Howard writes, in a letter
published last week in tbe Aberdeen
News that only four hundred men
fit for duty are left for tbe regiment.
Capt. Eoglesby writes the Water

Tbej gstl ered together all the mouoy

thence took a boat t<> Liberia.
But the luppoaed I'-.radiso of the

their story of their experiences, was
worse than the Desert ot Sahara.
The reception they got surprised

open artiis and offered plenty of work,
they were ?joked d >wo upon, and.
although willing to earn their bread,
were refused a chance.
They have returned to Boston.
They say the negro has absolutely no
chance to earn a living in Liberia.
All the wealth of tbe country is now
in the hands of a few persons. Though
Shack and Kirtley were expert farm

the men of the families appealed to
the captain of an Klder-Dempster
Line steamer to give them passage to
England. They told him of tbe trials
and sufferings tEey endured. They
said they bad spent what money they
had, the savings of almost a lifetime,
and they were willing to do anything
on tho ship if they could get passage
to K glnt d
Tbe kind-hearted Captain believed
their story, and they were taken to j
