The heroism of the locomotive en
?ineer is proverbial, -ind this fact
furnishes a patent reason why ti e
gallant conduct of Mike Brady
should not go unrewarded. Brady
was pulling an accommodation train
on tne southern Railway, some
seven miles out from Memphis,
when conn ig around a curve at a
high rate of speed, the driving rod
of the engine cracked in two, and
the end attached to the drive wheel
was whirled with tremendous force,
now thumping against the cross
ties and now against the side of the
boiler, threatening every moment
to overturn the locomotive, says the
Memphis Scimitar. At last the side
of the boiler w.as crushed through,
and steam and boiling water poured
out and into the cab, enveloping the
engineer and his fireman in a cloud
of scalding material. Had the en
gineer and his fireman deserted
their post and left the locomotive
and train to their fate, the result
would in all probability have been
a great holocaust, for there were
many passengers on the train. But
they held their places like heroe
putdown the brakes and the reverse
lever and soon had the tram at
standstill. Not until then did the
two men leave their cab, which was
then a mass of scalding steam. They
were but slightly hurt.

day morning at'J o'clock at the home
of her parents in Spring Hill, in the
21st year of her ago Deceased had
been ill with typhoid fever, and her
most untimely deatli was a sad shock
to her numerous friends. Kind
hearted, gentle and pti'e, she gained
the love and admiration of all with
whom she came in contact, and her
death is made sadder by thin fact
that she was in the bloom of young
womanhood, with the hopes and
promises of a bright future before
her. The bereaved family have the
heartfelt sympathy of everyone iu
their sore affliction, but God alone,
in his nil wise power and mercy,
can give them comfort an i he'ul
their broken hearts. The funeral
services were 'eld in the Method

Little Presten, the six-year-old son
of Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Page, near

ay, Aug. 3rd, at 3 p. m., and was
buried iu the family cemetery. He
met with an accident necessitating
the amputation of three of his aug
ers, which resulted in blood poison
and lock-jaw, causing his death in a
very few days.
God, in his all wise providence,
has taken this beautiful, pure little
bud from its earthly home, and trans
planted it in that clime where blight
never comes; in the beautiful para
dise, where little tired feet and ach
ing tieads shall forever rest. This
litUe sunbeam was the idol of its
fond parents' hearts, who cherished
so much hope in him. To the heart
broken parents and sorrowing little
brothers and sisters, we tender our
deepest sympathy and prayers, and
know they can only Hud comTort by
bowing to the will of our Heavenly
bather, and asking his aid in this
hour of their sad bereavement.

Mkmphis, Aug. 9 The case of C.
P. Roberts did not prove a trouble
some one to the trial jury, for, after
a comparatively brief weighing of
its merits, a verdict of guilty was
returned and the penalty fixed at
three years in the peniteutiary. Mo
tion for a new trial was entered.

business man of Memphis of that

To combat the claim by the State

Spain Without Ily Military Fore
Will Then CriKH llontilitles.
The progress of peace negotiations
between the United States and
America has bepn watched with
much interest during the past week,
and it now appears that peace will
be declared within a few hours time.
Spain's answer to the terms as
proposed by the United States was
delivered to President McKinley
Tuesday night by Ambassador
Cambon. Wednesday afternoon
Secretary Day gave out the state
ment that a protocol embodying the
proposed terms for the negotiation
of a treaty of peace had been agreed
upon, and that It was expected this
protocol would be executed.
Spain's reply having been con
strued by the Administration to be a
definite acceptance of the terms pro
posed by the President, these terms
were put in the form of a protocol.
This protocol was immediately
placed in the hands of Ambassador
Camb'n, who cabled it to Madrid
and who expects to receive authority
from the Spanish Government to
formally accept it and sign It on be-
haif of that Government. Secretary
Day expects Ambassador Cambon to
receive full authority from Madrid
to-day to sign the protocol, and in
that event it will be bigned without
delay and hostilities between the
United States and Spain will ceat-e
as soon as the commanders or the
two Governments in the Wes-t
Indies and the Philippines ' can be
The protocol is an elaboration t.f
the terms heretofore announced. It
does not fix the day nor the details
for the evacuation of Cuba and
Porto Rico by the Spanish troops.
Spain is to be allowed to evacuate
these islands with the arms of war,
the troops taking all their arms and
It is said that Spain's reply was
not free from ambiguity, but the
President construed it as an accept
ance of his terms, and Ambassador
Cambon agreed with him. There is
not believed to be a possibility of
Spain repudiating this construction.
Whould she do so, negotiations would
probably be broken oil entirely.

lln Tflls How Hf and Ills Men Sunk the
Speaking of his experience with
the Merriuiac, during a speecli at
New York last Thursday night,
Lieut. Hohson said :
"It is known to everybody that
when the cull was made' for volun
teers to go on the Merriuiac, men
fell over one another in their haste
to be accepted. On the New York
alone 140 men volunteered before
the order could ho passed that no
more volunteers were needed. When
a fr w out of tiiis number had been
assigned to stations on the Merri
mac, all, in obedience to orders, lay
flat uu their faces. Two were sta
tioned by the anchor gear, others by
the torpedoes arranged along the
side, and two in the engine-room. It
was agreed by each one that he
should not even look over his
shoulder, no matter what happened
to the ship, to any of his companions
or to himself. If wounded he would
place li itnsi-lf in a sitting or a kneel
ing posture, or whatever posture was
necessary, so that when the time for
his dury came he could do it to the
best advantage. And so they lay,
each man at his post, and under
what ditliculties you may under
stand when I tell you that, out of
the seven torpedoes placed along the
side, Ave had been shot away by the
euemy's fire before the order was
given for the Merrimac's crew to
gatner at the rendezvous ou the
quarterdeck. Projectiles were com
ing more as a continuous stream than
as separate shots. But, through the
whole storm, Jaeky lay there ready
to do his duty as he had been in
structed to do it. There was not
only the plunging fire from the forts
on both sides, but a terrific horizon
tal fire from the fleet in the harbor,
and it seemed as if the next projec
tile would wipe all the sailors out of
l.fe at once. If ever a feeling of
'each man for himself,' a feeling of
'get away from this,' 'get out of this
auyway, anyhow,1 was to be justi
fied, it was justified theu. Not a
mau so much as turned his head.
"Then, later, when we were on the
catamaran and the enemy's picket
boars came crawling up out of the
darkness with their lanterns, the
impulse was just as strong to slip otf
the raft and swim for the shore or
for the entrance of the harbor. The
simple order was given: o man
move until further orders. And not
man moved or stirred for nearly
On that same a'ternoon, by the
kindness of the gallant Commander-
iu Chief of the Spanish forces, Ad
miral Cervera, the men's clothing
was pe mitted to be brought to them
from the fleet, and one of the men, as
pokes, m.ii f.ir tne rei-r, was allowed
to come over to my cell witli a pack
age for me. He aid: 'We would
do it over again to-night, sir.'
"The next day, when it seemed
uncertain whether or not a remnant
of the Inquisition was to be revived1
when the enemy did not know
whether it was his fault or ours that
a flliip had been sunk, and rather in
clined to the belief that he had suuk
an American battleship and that we
were the only survivors out of sever
al hundred, the men were taken be
fore the Spanish authorities and
serious and Impertinent questions
put to them. Remember, they did
not know what it might cost them to
refuse to answer, Spanish soldiers of
the guard standing before them,
making significant gestures with his
hands: Mr. Hobsoii passed his
hands edgewise across his throat
our seamen laughed in their races.
Theu a Spanish Major questioned
Charette, because he spoke French,
and asked him this question:
"What was your object 111 com
ing in here?' and so long as I live I
shall never forget the way Charette
threw back his shoulders, proudly
lifted his head and looked him iu
the eyes as he said :
"'In the United States navy, ir,
it is not the custom of the seamen to
know or to desire to know, the ob
ject of an action of his superior ofll
cer.' "Take this simple Incident, and,
after all, in comparison with the
whole war, a very simple incident,
the sinking of the Merrimac, and
make your own deductions as to the
quality of manhood in the United
states navy, xou will have then a
more or less complete but certainly
not overestimated idea of 'Jacky.' "
