( Jul' nuintb, -One
One year no tomorrow the members
of Company K boarded tlio train in Harre,
for New York city where they went to
make up n .small jiart of n procession
called tO"tther to do honor to one. of
America's frreatest heroes, (Jen. U. S
(irunl, m whose inenifi'v a "Taleful na
tion sent its military streii'.h to assist
in the dedication of hU tomb, in Kivcr
siile Park. It; is now probable, that the
iiliniversary of thai occasion; will be
marked by a far different leave-taking,
should it bo ordained that t lie hoys are
to depart from their home and friends
to assist this time in carrying out the
groat and noble principles of liberty
uphold and fought for by the illustri
ous man to whiini homage was done by
the whole American people one year
wide, and draws 21 feet of water. To
man these guns and manage the ship
rcijuhvs a crew of ,"8 ollicers, headed
by the brave ('apt. ( lark of Moulpclier,
and -li'l men, The men are ever on the
watch day and night a watch most
vigilant and alert and knowing: full
well of the strained relations between
United States and Spain, if not in full
knowledge of existing hostilities, the'
will not be caught napping;. With till
the weapons of defence, with a coat of
armor second to none in the world,
with a speed which would enable her
to either chase down or run away from
any ordinary war-ship, it will require
several Spanish " 1 eincrarios ' to cap
ture this tiit-class battle-ship and her
valiant crew. Long live the Oregon!
.May she never anchor over such harbor
mines as did the Maine.
THE FOODS WE EAT.
If Spain Calls Coal Contra
band. The Spanish government lias reserved
liberty on the ijiiestion of coal being a
contraband of war. The deiiuitliou of
goods of war, as given by McC'ulloeh, is
as follows: "When two nations are en
gaged in war, if -there be any foreign
article or arjieles necessary for the de
fence or subsistence of either of them
and without which it would be dilllciill
for it to carry on the contest, the other
may legitimately exert every means in
its power to prevent its opponent being
supplied with such article or articles.
All writers of authority on international
law admit this principle; ami lay it
down that a nation which should fur
iosi! a ociiigerein Willi articles contra
band of war, that with supplies of
warlike stores or any other article re
quired for the prosecution of the war,
would forfeit her neutral character, and
that the other belligerent would be
warranted in preventing such succors
from being sent and confiscating u.m j
as lawful prize."
According to this authority, if Spain
should decide coal to be contraband it
would be impossible for a 1 'niled Stales
squadron fighting in Asiatic waters or
in any oilier place to obtain coal except
Ii'uiu their own coaling stations. This
of course will likewise apply to the
Spanish Heel in Cuban waters, and if the
United States should capture l'orto
ffco naoiio of the first steps, and take
possession of any oilier available coal
ing station, Spain would be seriously
worsted as to carrying on war so far
from home. On tu. oihci- hand, if coal
is declared contraband, the United States
would be soriotfUy'at, a disadvauigo in
carrying the naval warfare into Asiatic

NATURE OF LIFE.
A Talk on thf Interaction of the Constit
uents of Protoplasm.
Herbert Spencer's definition of the
nature of life implies, as is well known,
a continuous adjustment of internal to
external relations, says tho Loudon
Lancet. In other words, vitality is pro
served by interactions going on between
tho constituents of tho protoplasm. On
tho faoo of it this view must bo very
