given out. and he was driving his
cows to the home well. As thev
were crossing the track this cow
slied her left bi'id foot lietween
the planking and tne rail, and in
struggling to get it out she fell. Mr.
Corbin tried to get the animal's foot
nut. but could not. lie called to his
son. who was near, then ran to the
house and got a rail with which to
pry up the plank. When he got back
the train was in sight, about eighty
rods away, an 1 he ran down the
track making signals for the train to
stop. It did not do this, but passed
over the cows legs, cutting off both
the hind leg; and in some way break
ing a fore leg. The section men of
the road shot the cow.

Am I r-aht?"
"Up- ii receipt of the Instillations did
.vi v nevertheless leave your sta
"Yes. 1 did. for these reasons: First.
nocntTfe Captain rS!g-lK-c. a M-ont placed
In front or SanlLigo harbor, informed
uie that he did not Ix-lieve the Spanish
licet was titer; second. Iiecause Nu
vez. the pilot, tot . me he did net be
lieve tlie eueuiy's fleet could liter the
horbor; third, the c.rder Xo. 7 with the
:ii-coir.panyi;ig memorandum In which
Admiral Sainton minimized the im
portance cf this squadron being there,
and tltf Tact that the d piirtment's tele
gram which re.icheu me on May 'SI was
so ambl-ruous in its terms.
"It authorized me to coal at flon-
nlves, Hayti or at Caie Cruz. Con
nives being to the eastward, and kuow-
lug that Admiral Sampson was at Key
i'rnncls. In the Bahama channel to thr
north, it occurred to me that If the
Spanbh squadron were extant the
pro;ier strategical move was to go to
the westward awl not the eastward. I
was authorized in the same telegram
to move as far west as Cape Cruz, pro
vided coaling had been fonud possible
there. Xow thoe were the Inflnenclns
.ind t!ie operating motives. 1 felt that
the move west was strategically tht
proper one. w-.Jth a determination tc
.-oal as quickly n possible, and that
the etliclency of my squadron as a unit
was only equal to the efficiency of tu
coal supply of the slowest one that
composed It. Those were the motive
which caued the movement.
Tie ambiguity of the telegram from
the department. I think. Is manifest,
almost at once, liecause It states tirst
specifically, that all the deartnient"i'
Information Indicated eo and so. Thai
Is that the -Spanish fleet was still ni
Santiago. It pointed out a place whlcli
a that time was not accessible, and
lastly, it looked to me to determine and
reiiort whether the enemy wa In iiort
or not. Those were the influencing mo
tives." Captain Lemly And ycu were satis
fed with these, without taking an.v
steps whatever to ascertain If this or
der or these reports were correct?
"I ns-crtalned for myself througl:
the medium, that the department hail
placed there to keep me informed.
Those couts represented very I.irgel
the cavalry of an army, and if they
were unreliable they should not have
been placed there. I mnst have relied
upon what they said."
Th Equality -'"
"All people." remarked the earnest
citizen, "are born equal."
"Perhaps," answered the deliberate
friend, "but they don't 6tay equal any
longer than It takes for their parents
to provide them with clothes and play
