The British were most strongly in

fully loopholed, and the combat was so
close that rifles were freqeuntly fired
at arm's length. It was a hand-to-hand
encounter. The men on both
sides fought like demons, and the borne-
and bewilderment of the scene
could scarcely be paralleled.

Where Our Surplus Farm Prod acta
Have Gone for Five Years.
About SS Per Cent, to the United King
dom Notable Growth to Other Farts
of the World A Complete -Statement.
Washington, Jan. 14. A complete
statement of the quantities and values
of agricultural products exported from
this country, with the destination, has
been prepared by Chief Hitchcock, of
the section of foreign markets. It
covers the five fiscal years beginning
with 1894. So far as known this com
prises the first complete showing of
the kind that has been published.
The agricultural products exported
from the United States during the five
years had an average annual value of
$663,536,201. Of these enormous ex
ports, about CO per cent, found a mar
ker in the United Kingdom and its
various dependencies. The sum paid
by the British people for the American
farm produce purchased during the
peiiod mentioned reached as high as
$403,933,854 a year.
In the five years under consideration
the United Kingdom alone took more
than one-half of all our agricultural
exports, the consignments credited to
that country forming about 55 per
cent, of the total shipments, and hav
ing an average annual value of $362,
407,701. Germany, which ranks next to the
United Kingdom as a market for
the products of American agricul
ture, received about 13 per cent, of the
exports for 1894-1898, the average
yearly value amounting to $86,320,274.
France, with purchases that averaged
$43,988,790 a year,' was the third coun
try in importance..' The exports to
France, however, formed only about
6.6 per cent, of the total, and were
hardly more than half as large as the
shipments to Germany. The ship
ments to Germany, on the other hand,
were less than one-fourth the size of
those to the United Kingdom. These
three countries the United Kingdom,
Germany and France received to
gether nearly 75 per cent, of the total
After the three countries just men
tioned, the Netherlands, Belgium,
Canada, Italy and Spain afforded the
most important markets. The Nether
lands bought 4.3 per cent, of the total;
Belgium, 3.6 per cent.; Canada, 3.5 per
cent.; Italy, 2.2 per cent.; and Spain,
1.5 per cent. The average annual val
ues of the exports to these countrhe
were: Netherlands, $28,803,156; Bel
gium, $23,731,669; Canada, $23,020,517;
Italy, $14,264,424, and Spain, $9,761,870.
Our agricultural exports to Brazil,
although forming less than 1 per cent,
of the total, showed a yearly average
of $6,258,729. Shipments almost as
large were sent to Cuba, the average
annual value being $6,099,824. The con
signments to Denmark were more than
doubled in the five-year period, the
annual average amounting to $5,990,
952. To the British West Indies there
were exports averaging $5,241,657 a
year. Mexico recsived shipments aver
aging 4,636,486, British Africa $4,13S,
!)20, and European Russia $4,060,236.
The average yearly exports to Hong
Kong were valued at $3,555,5b3, and
those to Japan at $3,407,800. For Por
tugal the average annual record was
52,709,694; for Sweden and Norway,
$2.6S5,5l9; for Hayti, $2,2Sl,9u6; and
for British Australasia, $2,030,804.
The other comftries to which the
United States sent agricultural prod
ucts, having an average yearly value
in excess of $1,000,000, were Austria
Hungary, Venezuela,- British Guiana,
Puerto Rico, the Hawaiian islands and
the French West Indies.
With very few exceptions, the lead
ing foreign countries materially in
creased their purchases of American
agricultural products during the pe
riod. In the total value of the agricul
tural exports there was an advance
from $66.633,747 in 1S94 to $858,507,
!42 in ls'JS, making a gain of $221,874,
195. The countries of destination that
contributed most to this increase were
the United Kirigdom.Gennany, France.
Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, Ja
pan, Italy, Denmark and British Afri
ca. Our exports of farm produce to the
United Kingdom increased $82,5S8,S54
duirng the five years, advancing from
$356,006,251 in 1894 to $438,595,105 in
1S08. This was decidedly the largest
gain recorded, although the shipments
both to Germany and to France
allowed an important growth. In the
case of Germany there was an ad
vance from $72,984,382 to $119,425,720,
and in the case of France from $41,
D11,8?S to $75,327,096. The gain for the
former country was $46,441,338, ami
that for the latter $33,415,208.
A summary of the agricultural ex
ports showing the total for each con
tinent brings out the fact that about
per cent, of all the farm products
shipped from the United States during
the five years mentioned was marketed
in Europe. The value of the shipments
to European countries from 1894 to
lo9s, inclusive averaged $586,958,907 a
year, lu 1893 it reached as high as
$761,870,7S2, showing an increase of
$195,588,939 over the value for 1894,
which was $566,281,843.
After taking out the shipments to
Europe there remained only about 13
per cent, of the total agricultural ex
ports to be distributed among the sev
eral other continents. The chief part
of this went to Canada, and the other
North American countries. During
1&94-1S93 the agricultural export!
from the United States to countries in
North America had an cverage annua?
Talue of $48,724,257. In 1894 the
value was $W,727,457, the following
year it fell to $43,773,610, and ther

DELATED THE WEDMNG TOUR.
lad Story of a Toung Man's Downfall
oa the Night of His Mar
There were a whole lot of sensational
features at a recent swell wedding on
the West side, which, for obvious rea
sons, never got into the society columns
of the papers. They are too good to re
main in obscurity, however, and are
here related, the names, of course, be
Hawkins was the groom, and the bride
was the only daughter of a wealthy
family, who are fervent members of
the Methodist church. After the cere
mony a reception was held at the house,
the departure of the young couple on
their wedding tour being set for 10:30
o'clock. About 9:30 o'clock Hawkins
stole away from the house to a saloon
about a block away.
As it happened, two of his acquaint
ances, who had not a very high opin
ion of him, and had a grudge to satisfy,
were in the saloon. They noticed Haw
kins' full-dress suit, and be, in an un
wonted burst of generosity, asked them
to take something
"Give us a small bottle of cham
pagne," said Hawkins.
"Why all these togs?" asked one of
"Been getting married," responded
Hawkins. "The old folks are teeto
talers, and it was pretty dry around
at the house, so I just slipped' out to get
a bracer. You know I seldom drink
anything, but I feel pretty nervous to
night." The two acquaintances congratulated
Hawkins, and in honor of the wedding
insisted on buying another bottle of
wine, which was followed by another.
By the time the third bottle had disap
peared, Hawkins insisted on a fourth,
and when that had been disposed of he
was decidedly overcome. It was then
"Better go home, Hawkins," said one
of his companions.
Hawkins wept at the suggestion.
"Coin sthay jn here," he announced.
"Giv's 'nother botT."
The bottle was duly finished, after
which Hawkins sat down in a chair and
went to sleep. The other two men,
who were pretty gay by this time, be
gan to undress the unconscious bride
groom, fhey took off his collar and
white tie. then his shirt and undershirt,
after which they replaced his vest and
coat. Then they removed his shoes
and stockings, after which they put his
shoes on. Last of all, they blacked
Hawkins' face and then they roused him
from his sleep.
"Comeon, Hawkins, we'll walk around
to the house with you," they said, and
almost carrying the staggering Haw
kins they sallied out, one on each side of
When they reached' the house there
was a scene. The bride was standing
on the steps, almost distracted, and her
parents had blood in their eyes. The
wretched Hawkins was oblivious to
everything, however, and had to be car
ried upstairs and put to bed, while the
bride had a fit of hysterics and her
mother snapped out: "I told you
you'd regret this. I never was satisfied
with the match."
As the two conspirators left Hawkins
room after putting him to bed, the
mother-in-law stopped them and asked
how he had got into such a disgraceful
condition. They professed entire ig
norance. "We were coming along Madison
street," they explained, "when we saw
him sitting on the curbstone, with a
lot of boys tormenting him. We drove
the bojs away, and after finding out his
name and address brought him home.
He is an entire stranger to us."
How Hawkins squared himself is not
known, but he did eventually, and the
wedding tour began two clays later
than the date set for it. It is believed
that the teetotal principles of his wife's
parents have been adopted by him, as
he has not been known to take a drink
since that night. Chicago Inter Ocean.
