PHASES OF HAVANA LIFE
Havana, the metropolis of Cuba, bae
one great qualification for a success
ful winter resort the conscienceless
ability of its hotel keepers to charge,
says a special Havana correspondent
of the New York Times. Not even a
Venetian jeweler or a Chinese curio
vender can come up to these Havana
hotel men. Thoy begin with the little
pat of execrable butter that you don't
order, but must have, and continue
with not only everything you have or
dered, but half a dozen more that you
haven't. It is worse than the English
system, where the price is fixed on ad
mission within the four walls of the
building and everything else Is extra.
The other, day a guest at a leading ho
tel ordered boiled eggs for breakfast.
The bill of fare quoted a price or 4J
cents, and the waiter explained that
that was for boiling the eggs three

ed four minutes. When the bill came
it was for "eggs especiale," and the
price was 00 cents.

A nice looking young man came down

choice new varieties of fruits on which
he would feast in Havana. The first

HERO OF INDIAN FIGHT
The late Major General James W.
Forsyth's mort distinguished service
to Kansas was rendered at the time
of the famous Cheyenne Indian raid in
September, 1SGS, when the trile broke
out of Wyoming and came on a tour
of devastation down across Nebraska
into northwest Kansas and threatened
to sweep across the state.
The tribes of the region opposed the
construction of the Kansas Pacific rail
road and bezan to raid and kill over a
widespread territory of thriving settle
ments. Their deed were such that no
white man able to handle a weapon
could stay the passion of revenge.
General Forsyth, who was then a colo
nel, was on staff duty at Fort Wallace
and had no followers, but In the ex
citement of the hour drummed up fifty
unemployed scouts, mounted and
equipped in their own wild fashion,
and placed himself and men under
military orders. The second in com
mand was Lieutenant F. II. Beecher.
The command started for the scene
of the most receut depredations report
ed at Fort Wallace and struck a trail
on a branch of Republican river on
Sept. 14. They followed the trail two
days without seeing a redskin, but evi
dences pointed to their presence in the
vicinity. They were trying to mislead
and ambush the daring party. The
afternoon of Sept. 10 Colonel Forsyth
halted and established camp on Dry
Fork, a stream with but a few Indies
of water. He was in the center of a
plain skirted With hills and dotted
with clumps of stunted trees. Late in
the afternoon a band of several hun
dred Indians rushed from cover and at
tempted to stampede the animals that
were grazing near the camp. They
were repulsed, and Colonel Forsyth,
assuming this demonstration to be the
forerunner of ft grand attack, moved
his force to an island In the middle of
the water course. The island bore a
few low trees. , The morning of Sept.
17 every ma was alert before day
light, and not a moment too soon. The
horses were tied in the bushes close at
hand, and while several picked marks
men kept up a fire on the nean?t In
dians their companions dug rifle pits
and made a circle of them so as to re
ceive the enemy on all sides.
The Indians kept up a steady fire
with their improved repeating rifles
and coolly took position In easy range,
boys with bows and arrows stealing
up very close by crawling on the
ground. A shower of bullets and ar
rows soon announced the onslaught of
numbers. Colonel Forsyth bade his
men hold their fire and save ammuni
tion for the trying moment. Not a 6hot
was fired until the savages camcwithia
easy reach. Then a rapid fire was
opened, sending down the front lines
of warriors. At the head rode the war
chief of the Cheyennes, Roman Nose,
a typical savage of the wilds. Roman
Nose fell within a few feet of the rifle
pits, and the painted bucks that sur
vived the terrible volley of death
shrank back appalled at the spectacle.
.It was uearlv. mlddav. and. Colonel 1

Forsyfu" was not longHTi divining the
true situation. He was surrounded by,
Immense numbers of bloodthirsty red
skins, which afterward proved to be
Cheyennes and Sioux over 0.'0 Mrong.
Colonel Forsyth and his little band
kept up the fighting until dark, making'
a third charge at the close of the day.
The losses in Forsyth's baud had !ecn
severe. Every hoie and mule had
been killed in its tracks. Lieutenant
Beecher was killed, four scout were
dead In their pits, a volunteer surgeon, ,
Dr. Moore, was dead, and flxteen
scouts were wounded.
Colonel Irsyth had two wounds, one
a shattered leg bone. It was evident
that the distressed party would have
to stand a siege. They were a hundred
miles from the nearest post. Fort Wal
lace, and no other help was to be look
ed for. The ammunition supply, thanks
to the self control of . the men, was
ample for sduic days. Of bread there
was a lack, but steaks from the slaugh
tered animals would keep off famine
for days. The gallant leader said to his
survivors, "We will win the fight yet
or sell our lives dearly in the attempt."
Under his orders a spring was scoop
ed out in the sand, a parapet was made
all around the island, and the bodies
of the dead horses and their saddles
were placed so as to stop the bullets.
Two scouts volunteered to try and
steal through the Indian lines during
the night and summon aid, and they,
left at midnight, crawling stealthily,
the first two miles.
The following day the Indians, kept
rp a hot fire on the imprisoned scouts
and made several attempts to draw
them from cover. On the second night
of the siege two more volunteers start
ed out for relief to Ime communica
tion with Fort Wallace In case the
first two had met with disaster and tbo
second should be more fortunate. The
third day the savages kept up their
demonstrations, but made no effort to
charge the camp. On Sept. 23 the In
dians disappeared without offering fur
