When the Cuban junta in New
York was running the American con
gress through the lieutenancy of
some of the amateur statesmen in
both branches a few months ago, it
little realized that when the war
really came on the natives of the
island would be as much obliged to
respect humanity's requirements us
the Spaniards themselves.

These victories over Spain may not

Sometimes Bard For Them to Understand
the Importance of Discipline.
That the soldiers of the Continental
army yesterday farmers and artisans
could fight history tells, but in the
transition stage the idea of subordiha
tion that marks the difference between
an army and an armed mob was diffi
oait to grasp by men in whom the idea
of personal independence was so strong.
The captain was no better than the
private in tho village from which both
bailed, and it was not strange that the
private, when ordered by his superior
officer to fetch a bncket of water from
the spring, should retort: "Get it your
self. I got it yesterday. It's your turn
today." This was not insubordination
in the view of the rank and file, bnt
merely the assertion of a proper spirit
It happened not infrequently during
tne civil war that the private was
richer man than the officer, as in the
case of Elias Howe, the inventor of the
sewing machine, who on several occa
sions presented a fine horse to some ma
jor or colonel too poor to purchase such
a mount himself.
There was another soldier of this
stamp, Koch by namo, who was well
known in Philadelphia. He left a for
tune of over 1 1,000, 000. It foil to bis
lot one night to be stationed sentinel
over a baggage wagon. The weather
was cold and wet This set the sentinel
musing. After remaining on post for
half an hour he called lustily :
"Corporal of the guard 1"
The corporal came and inquired what
was wanting. Koch wished to be reliev
ed for a few minutes, having something
to say to the officer in command of the
post. His wish was gratified, and in a
few minutes he stood in the presence of
"General," said he, "what is the
value of that wagon over which I am
"How should I know? Was that all
yon wanted?" responded the general im
"Something approximate," insisted
"Oh, well, $1,000 perhaps."
"Very well, General Macpherson,'
responded the private. "I will write
